My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ok, so this book is NOTHING like Claimed! Its dirtier and maybe a bit more... dramatic. But lemme tell you, despite the fact that throughout half of the book I wanted to punch both Cora and Aidan, I did enjoy this book.
It was hot and passionate and so damn confusing with the ups and downs and the "OMG hes breaking my heart but I refuse to leave! Or tell him how I feel!" (not to give away anything), that I just didn't want to put down the book because of it. I wanted to see what was next and it about drove me crazy.
Cora, while I expected her to be slightly tougher, surprised me a bit. She was very... emotional throughout the book. It wasn't until about the end that I saw her as I expected her to be. Aidan kept saying she was strong, but I had my doubts. Although with rational thinking, I can see it. Kind of. But still, I did expect more from her, but I didnt hate her character, which is a very good thing.
Aidan... OMG I just wanted to punch him. Yea, he had his moments where I was all "Awwwww..." because hes really sweet and passionate and just perfect, but hes soooooo.... a guy. And not only that, but hes a guy who had a traumatic thing happen (Again, no spoilers!) that kinda blinded him to everything, well, romantic.
All in all, I did enjoy reading Bared, and I cant wait to get my hands on more books in the series.
I received a digital copy of the book via netgalley, and it in no way swayed my opinion. Stacey Kennedy and her amazing writing did that.
Bared (Club Sin #2)by Stacey Kennedy (Goodreads Author)In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Stacey Kennedy returns to Club Sin with another wicked and wild tale of submission, seduction, and love.
At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant façade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him.
Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and surrender. He refuses to allow her to submit to any other man—nor does she want to. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing. For as they give in to passion, they must lay bare their souls for a love that could heal—and free—them both.
Bared is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
