I'm not keen on requesting ARCs when I don't know the author. My bad! Since I signed up to GR I have read my fair share of great and not so great BDSM books. Hence, I know what I like, however, Claimed is so not my cup of tea. It's among the worst BDSM books I've ever read.

I can and have overlooked the very first sentence of Claimed:
"Master Dmitri doesn't expect sex." Cora grunted.

As far as I can remember pigs are grunting. Is she a woman and hu

This book was spectacular! Wow. I'm always a bit nervous reading BDSM books as I've come to find more often than not that the physicality of the scenes and the huge focus on dungeons/Doms/subs far outweighs the gift of a good storyline. It's often porn at its best. This book did NOT fit that bill. Was it off the hook hot? Oh yeah! Did we have our fair share of dungeon scenes? Of Doms/subs? Yes and yes, but this book was so much more!

Everyone- I'd like to introduce you to Master Dmitri-

This was the good part. The book had much potential, the main couple seemed likable, the story as interesting as an erotic romance gets, the secondary characters intriguing and the first Dom/sub scene was pretty hot. All was well in Joanna-land.

The book took a huge dive there. The heroine proved to be a spineles

This was an enjoyable story that I found gave a beginner perspective into the BDSM lifestyle. It is a perfect story for someone who is curious and unsure about BDSM, as the author has a great way of defining the roles of the Dom and Sub in a very simple way. I did like how Stacey Kennedy made a point of stating in a letter at the beginning of the book, that in no way does this portray "real life" BDSM and that it is strictly from her own imagination. I think that often times us as readers think ...more

WONDERFUL! This is a fantastic book.

Claimed is a BDSM love story with realistic psychological input, written in the third person. This is exactly how I see the lifestyle IMHO. (Yes they fall in love really fast, yes she gets into the scene fast too, including exhibition sex, etc, - but hey - it's a story so we let these little improbable things slide).

I’ll start with saying that when something annoys me in a book, I can’t stop myself from seeing all the crap that drives me nuts! That means that if I love a book, it could have grammatical and editorial mistakes and I wouldn’t see them… But if a book has that one thing that kicks me out of a story, it usually doesn’t end well.

In this book, it all started with the name. What is it with authors and picking stupid unappealin

This was a really fun light BDSM read. Presley (I like this name:D) she just broke up with her boyfriend who broke her heart. Her best friend Cora lives the lifestyle and had invited Presley to check it out. Cora is such a cute overprotective best friend, I liked her. Presley is a little unsure if this is for her but she wants more in her relationships than what she has got in the past. So she decides to go for it.

Claimed is a great book for beginners in regard towards BDSM books. The book was written in 2013 and it was very much relevant during that time period.

I’m not sure why I pulled this one out. I guess I was just thinking of all of the BDSM books I use to read and well, I felt like reading something mild, slightly steamy and just something I didn’t have to think too much on.

I think this is my first Stacey Kennedy book and I was really happy with it. I had low expectations because it’s

I had a difficult time connecting the characters at first. The first meeting that Dmitri and Presley had, at his mansion, left me wanting more maybe a different setting or a different encounter. I don't know but it did not grab me at first. However, I did find that connection as the two had numerous encounters throughout the story. Dmitri is a hardcore Dom was a soft spot for the his submissive Presley.

I'm very particular when it comes to erotic romances involving BDSM. There is one author against whom I measure all others who write about clubs and scenes, but the one thing I am most drawn to is the psychological aspect. Since becoming a fan of BDSM stories, I've found that I like characters who have trouble expressing themselves verbally, either out of embarrassment or just the lack of communication skills. I'm fascinated that people in general have no problem expressing the wish to "fuck", b

Book Review:
I really enjoyed this book. This BDSM story was a little on the lighter side than others I have read, and I have to say that I enjoyed it much more than the tortured hero/virginal heroine angle.

I love the names the author gave these characters. I loved Presley. It was different but not over the top, and Dmitri…mmmm, Dmitri. I’m already pre-programmed to like this name because of Dimitri from Vampire Academy. A

"What's the club safe word, if you need it?"

I'm almost ashamed to admit I got this book a while back as an ARC, and never had made it around to it. Well, shame on me, because it was delicious.

I hadn't read an actual D/s book in, wow, I can't really even remember when. For some reason I think I was a little skeptic even to read this one for that reason. I'm not really sure why, but I should be spanked, pun intended. :D

I enjoy Stacey Kennedy's writing. She has the ability to convey a story that is sexy but has depth. Claimed was no different. The story is about a fairly virgin-esque heroine who is looking to awaken her kinky side after her breakup with her ex of eight years. Enter Master Dmitri who possesses all the Dom-ly characteristics that Presley is eager to experience. Dmitri is tall, dark, handsome, enigmatic and sexy. She is instantly drawn to him as he is to her. Presley makes him go against him stand ...more

Claimed is a BDSM novella, but it really felt more like a naughty romance. That's a good thing!

A lot of times BDSM comes with a calm coolness both in and out go the bedroom, but our Dom was more for play than he was an actual Dom. This is a blossoming romance between a Dom and his sub. Hot, but quite cute.

This will throw you off though... this is a BDSM book with almost no sex! They had sex once. They just played a lot. LOL. Once!!! That was slightly unexpected.

Review to come.............
Although I've never experience BDSM and the author told this story from an imaginary idea I enjoyed the characters together. The dungeon scene was a great way to draw Presley into the experience and to make her feel comfortable. There were a few funny areas within the book and I thought the author did a fine job at writing it. I read a few BDSM books before more on a dark scene, however I thought the author story was well written and I would love to read more. ...more

There are as many reasons to read as there are readers, or books. Sometimes you need to learn something, sometimes you want to be scared, there are occassions when it is all about the mystery and then there are the moments when all you want and need is a sweet love story. Today was one of those love story days for me and wasn’t I lucky that I decided to start – and finish – “Claimed” by Stacey Kennedy.

I know that books about BDSM is the latest trend and I couldn’t help myself! I had to request this book and review it! And I knew that my instinct would be correct! This is a very nice read. I would prefer it to be a little bigger but I enjoyed it nevertheless!

Presley came to Las Vegas to be with her fiancé. After a month he told her that he cheated on her and she went to live with a new friends of her.
