I'll probably never write a proper review for this so... A few points.

1) I liked this book in general. It was much better than the first in all aspects.
2) The heroine was very likable. Strong and compassionate, she was nothing like that idiot Presley.
3) The writing in these books just doesn't work for me. It is too formal and sctructured for erotic romance at some points. That first chapter was horrifying, like something out of a historical. Luckily the rest wa

Bared is about Cora, who is a submissive and Aidan Knight, her Dom. Both of them are in it purely for the play and the pleasure they derive from it. Two years ago, they agreed that their D/s relationship is not exclusive. They can play with whoever they want. Outside of the club, they are friends but no more than that. The reason being was that Aidan already had a submissive, whom he was very in love with but she died in a car accident. So for Aidan, he can't be anymore than a temporary

Cora has been in love with Aidan for years. At Club Sin she submits to him and loves him in the only way he will allow, but outside of the club they have no interaction. Aidan is still mourning the loss of his sub, Lily, and won't commit to anyone else. But when he starts to notice Cora pulling away from him, he must come to terms with his loss and be the Dom that Cora needs.

Aidan was the tortured Hero that you just want to hug tight and never let go. He didn't feel like he deserved Cora

Master Aiden & Cora share a special bond, but although they play together in the dungeon, he has yet to claim her as his. When Cora became a member of Club Sin, she had already had experience but that doesn’t stop Master Aiden from taking her under his wing.

It’s been years since Aiden’s world crumbled, pain he thought he had worked through still lingers and only one has broken through. Cora

Bared is the second novel in Stacey Kennedy’s BDSM series Club Sin and works completely well as a standalone. It is not necessary to read the first book in the series, Claimed, to understand what is happening in this one.

I think it’s safe to say that these books are based purely on a fantasy world where the doms are pretty much not just perfect doms but perfect men as wel – just exactly the way we girls would want them to be. So long as you accept this and just go with the flow, then these books

Claimed (Club Sin #1) by Stacey Kennedy was a wonderful, warm, sweet story of love, submission, and taking chances with one's feelings. Bared (Club Sin #2), book two in the series centers on a smoldering D/s relationship that only flourishes in the dungeon at Club Sin. I liked the overall premise of the story, but I didn’t like how it played out on the pages.

For two years Aidan and Cora have played together, spent enough time together to know each other wants and needs, but once the scene is fin

Four Stars for Bared (Club Sin #2) by Stacey Kennedy

I was pleasantly surprised by Bared. Truthfully, I wasn't expecting much, I've picked up a few D/s club-type romances and they were often filled with sex and BDSM and nothing more. No substance. No character development. Nothing. This was not the case with this second installment to the Club Sin Series by Stacey kennedy. We were treated to characters with depth and real emotion. The supporting players were fun to read about and I became interes

It was better then the 1st book, but it still drove me a bit crazy...

In the 1st chapter the author completely murdered the male POV. There was no chance of revival and that's when I knew I had to take a break, read another book and come back to this one after. Reading an AMAZING historical romance really helped calm me down, otherwise this review would have gone differently.

If Aidan wasn't so blind and didn't have so much guilt over something he couldn't have control over, there wouldn't be so much heartache. The book was more focused on the mechanics of the D/s relationship than the erotic which is not something you can see often.

Cora has been in love with Aidan for almost two years but he doesn't return the affection and that has started to cause problems with their relationship. Everyone knows she has feelings for him, except of him.

Review for Bared (Club Sin) by Stacey Kennedy

The Masters of Club Sin are back in this smokin’ hot must read Bared by Stacey Kennedy. While you can read this one as a stand-alone, I would strongly suggest you pick up Claimed first and meet Dmitri and Presley before you dive into Aidan and Cora’s story. Of all the BDSM stories I have read I have to give mad props to this author for the realism she puts into her scenes. A lot of authors go way over the top and have things going on that would requir

This is a part of a series about Club Sin... A BDSM club. I picked this one up because the first book was so good... However, this one had a very different story that was full of self realizations, emotions and denials.

The first book had a definite protagonist & it was amazing. It surprised me that this book brought out emotion beyond the club scene & it was good. I really don't read these kind of books. They just seem repetative to me and once you've read one, you've read them all. This

Aidan he's all man, "even from across the dungeon, you looked upset." At her silence, since her voice caught in her dry throat, he frowned. "Now I see I'm not imagining things. Answer me." Aidan is battling some demons, well his inner feelings, "and more than once Aidan pointed out that he cared for Cora as a friend, nothing more. He was her Dom, for eff's sake. Of course, he gave her attention." When both Cora and Aidan don't have walls up they are really great together, at ease, and have fun, ...more

I was quite disappointed by this second book in the Club Sin series by Ms. Kennedy. While the first book was truly a good read, this second book was, in my opinion, very predictable and uninspired. The two main characters were carryovers from the first book and I did not find them to be well-written or engaging at all. I felt like I knew exactly how the story was going to end a few chapters into the book. I kept reading in the hope that the storyline would improve or that there would be addition ...more

This was an excellent book. The connection that Cora and Aidan have is electric! It starts off with a bang too! hothothot! Hints of their past and how Cora feels for Aidan had me emotionally invested right from the start.

I really liked Cora and her sass, she’s so sweet and spunky. How Cora sacrificed her own feelings was touching. Aidan cares for Cora tremendously and wants to understand her. I could see and feel how Aidan felt for Cora – waiting for him to realize it was agonizing (but it a go

Bared is exactly what I hoped it to be! Aidan has all of the qualities that I enjoy in a hero. He's strong and loyal with a desire to do what is best for others even when it goes against what he wants and ultimately needs for himself. Aidan has suffered a tragic loss and carries the pains and scars buried deep within himself. Because of his loss he has limited himself to superficial relationships with subs. Although he has been playing exclusively with Cora, he's not ready to offer her any more

Attention: Fifty Shades of Grey Lovers!

For those of you that enjoyed the forbidden pleasures of the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy, Club Sin is another series in this BDSM subgenre of romance books that you will not want to miss. Bared is the second book in the series, but can be read as stand-alone book, as each book has its own storyline. All that said, for those of you that loved Dimitri and Presley (the main characters in Claimed: Club Sin), you'll be pleased to learn that they do make an app

After the debut novel, which was so eye-opening and fulfilling, this did not satisfy me. Great premise with sassy, sub Cora falling for her grieving, Dom Aidan. But there were two major problems that kept me from my satisfaction.

In the first book of the series, Kennedy showed the poetic beauty of the Dom/sub relationship where the Masters of Club Sin were so in-tuned to their charges and designed these awe-inspiring, deeply touching "scenes" to answer the women's most secret cravings. For me th

I received this ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The gist: Cora and Aidan belong to the private BDSM club, Club Sin. He's a Dom, she's a sub. He's still grieving the loss of his first love. She's in love with him and his grief tortures her (although he doesn't realize it).

I liked Cora and Aidan and wanted them to be committed to each other. As with all BDSM books, I can't necessarily 'relate' to the characters, but I DID feel for them. It was obvious Aidan loved Cora and ever

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

I loved Bared even more than I enjoyed the first book in the Club Sin series, Claimed. I was so excited to get to hear both Cora and Aidan's story, and fascinating it was. I adored both of the characters and the story they had to share.

Bared adds another fantastic secondary character, while putting emphasis on the characters readers came to love in Claimed. I continue to love the characters, and I think hearing Aidan and Cora's story was one of my favorite stories I've read in awhile.

I couldn't get past the first five chapters or so. The initial scene was nice, as was the aftercare, but I could not get into page after page of the main character thinking about how desperately she loves her dom but oh gosh they just can't be together because of his Tragic Past™, and the dom's mental monologue about how his sub is upset but he doesn't know why so he's going to DEMAND answers from someone else's sub... ugh.
