Kenzie Hart apointed herself the brat of Club Sin long ago. Playing the bratty sub helps her get what she needs in the club while keeping her emotional distance. Kenzie has been burned by love one too many times and she is determined to keep everyone out. Not allowing anyone to dominate her body and soul seems like a good way to ensure that. But can she keep Porter Marshall out for the whole month she agreed to play his sub?

Kenzie Hart is a woman who has had much loss in her life. She holds herself strong on the outside, never letting people in completely. To let them in would for sure bring heartache. Kenzie is a submissive and is found a place, a BDSM club called Club Sin, where there are others who are like her. The problem with Kenzie is that she is a Brat and pushes the limits with all the Doms in a less than respectable fashion. No one really likes to play with her. It isn't until an agreement i

Her attention to the psychology behind the BDSM lifestyle, and her delicious alpha heroes, who always know just how to protect and take care of their woman, always manages to provide for an addictive, provocative read.

After several weeks now, I know how ... I just put this as "Read" and that's it. I quit.

I try to not DNF books in general and especially ARC because I think it's a great opportunity when you are given a book to review. I love to give my opinions on what I liked and why I liked a book and so I try as much as possible to end book even if I don't like them.

In this case, maybe it would have been better to have read all the books in this series before this one.

The fifth installment of the Club Sin series brings us Kenzie & Porter. Kenzie is the sub with sass that no Dom has tamed. From the outside it appears that she enjoys pushing the limits just to reap the punishments but that that is about to change when she is paired with Porter for a month.

Porter isn’t new to the scene, but he hasn’t been at Club Sin long enough to become a Master without first proving himself. In order to achieve the coveted spot, he must play with Kenzie for the next thirty da

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Kenzie's life has known a lot of loss and because of this she likes to keep people at a certain distance. She also craves the strong touch of a Dominant male, as long as she is in control of what is happening in the scene. This contradiction in her personality earns her the label of brat and being known as a difficult sub at Club Sin. When Por

In TAMED we get the smart mouthed proud to be bratty sub vs the caring and patient Dom. Kenzie is a submissive used to getting what she wants by goading the Doms who play with her and thereby getting the pain of punishment that she desires. Kenzie wants no real ties to any one Dom because she doesn't want to fully submit to anyone especially outside of a scene. She doesn't even want the aftercare that most would enjoy and see as necessary comfort. However, Kenzie meets her match when she agrees ...more

Tamed by Stacey Kennedy is the 5th book in the Club Sin series. This one features Porter and Kenzie. Porter is assigned to work with Kenzie as his Sub for the next month. He’s working to earn Master status in the Club and Kenzie has always been the bratty/difficult Sub. His task is to gain her submission. It started out good but it wasn’t long before Kenzie’s inner monolog began to irritate me. She’s supposed to be this strong woman but really she’s not at all. She lives her life wallowing in th ...more

Loved this! Great story that is sexy and sweet!

Kenzie is so complicated and challenging and I loved learning all the details about her past that made her choose to be the way she was. She's normally so bratty and I loved seeing a different side of her. Porter was awesome, I loved how caring and protective he was of her. They had great chemistry and heat and I loved how their relationship built and developed. Kenzie and Porter had a great push and pull with one another. There w

This was the first book from this series that I have read. My reading of this book was not effected by not reading the previous books.
I liked that, even though the story was BDSM club orientated, this book was more than just sex. I will definitely be going back to read the other books in this series.

Another great Club Sin book. Porter has some serious patience for dealing with Kenzie. I'm glad Kenzie told him what was going on and didn't drag it out for most of the book. Now I can't wait for Sawyer and Chloe's book.

With each book in Stacey Kennedy’s Club Sin series I become more enamored with the characters and this author. I love the way the club masters and the submissives have all formed a bond, a family of sorts and the way they protect and help each other no matter what. In this book Dom Porter Marshall has agreed to master Club Sin submissive and resident brat Kenzie Hart for one month and if he proves he can cure her of her bratty ways h

I sometimes just want to escape what can be a humdrum existence but never as much as the characters that visit Club Sin seem to. These books always seem to feature complex characters looking for something and finding it through intimacy. Letting go and just embracing new sensations seems like such a simple thing but what happens if you are hiding a deep pain and the only recourse you have is to hide your feelings? In this story we meet Kenzie who is a natural submissive and yet she pushes all th ...more

Each time I read one of The Club Sin series books, I just grow more and more in love with them. This is the story I've been waiting for since the beginning of the series. Kenzie is a submissive but she's sassy and bold which gets her into major trouble with her Doms. She's a sub that has yet to be controlled. All that changes with Porter. If he can tame her, he'll be able to obtain master status in Club Sin, which is what all Dom's aspire to. These two characters meet their match with one anothe ...more

In this latest BDSM romance from the Club Sin series, Porter finally gets a chance to have Kenzie right where he wants her as she agrees to be his submissive for a month, part of proving his rightful status as a Club Sin Master. But beneath Kenzie's bratty exterior beats the heart of a wounded woman, one Porter wants to help heal. Will he be able to break through Kenzie's shell and prove to her that they belong together?

I'm not sure that I've ever been able to say this about a BDSM story before,

I liked the fact that in this book the usual angst towards the end of the book is missing. Master Porter and Kenzie worked things out in a way that made things easy and I would have preferred instead of taking the hard way. Their relationship is lovely, but I would have liked it more if they expressed their feelings more and the epilogue was more extended showing us more of their lives together.

Dom Porter gets assigned the one sub he hasn´t scened with yet, bratty Kenzie.
What he never expected was how he would react to her submission, or how she´s bend to his will. What will happen when their month together is up?
Kenzie´s always found her outlet in the pain and getting the response she wants by being impossible, but this Dom doesn´t do what she´s used to. She´s not responding like her usual self, either. But this is just an obligation for him, right? Nothing could come from this?

Stacey Kennedy nailed it with this book. I knew this was going to be a great book, but it was freaking amazing. Honestly, this is my favorite book in the series by far.

(3.5) It was a short, quick read and I was happy with that because it was my least favorite of the series. The drama throughout the book was just too much and felt forced and a little immature at times for me. Porter was a great lead, but for me Kenzie didn't do anything as a the female lead to prove herself deserving of Porter. I can deal with bratty, but she didn't even come across as that for me and I think that is what rubbed me the wrong way one too many times.

I've been waiting for this book since I started reading the Club Sin series. Kenzie was so funny and was a such a naughty submissive in the previous books that I knew her book would be fun. And I couldn't wait to meet the Dom who would finally be her match!

In all the previous books, Kenzie was so spunky and sassy and it seemed like she loved being disobedient. But as I got to know her in THIS book, I started to like her less and less. She had s

It began with a fantasy and has turned into one of my favorite BDSM series. Stacey Kennedy tells the stories of the men and women of Club Sin and shares her inner eroticism with a sensual bite!

I really enjoyed reading Tamed (Club Sin #5) by Stacey Kennedy, and I think that’s because the book actually had a story that was supplemented with lite BDSM scenes. The characters were lifelike, warm, caring and played well with each other. The book didn't have one of those “terrible misunderstanding” events, even though Kenzie didn't share the threat to her business, as Porter felt she should have.

Most of the characters in the book are familiar to readers of the series, so there were no surpri
