Running from a troubled past, Sandra Barry spent years hiding out in New York City’s BDSM scene, finding satisfaction and even a sense of community as a sub at a large dungeon. But when a ...more
New to me author : I’ve never read anything by this author, but I did like the set up to this club. I thought Club Desire reminded me of a li ...more
My Obsession is more than an erotic BDSM novel. It's about two people finding a lifestyle that helps them deal with their pasts as well as finding personal and sexual satisfaction. It's was the journey for both Brent and Sandra that brought two people together that needed each other.
Sandra is running from her life in New York. After high school Sandra left her home in Phoenix and started fresh in New York. Things didn't go according to plan after she became involved with an ab ...more
I love getting in on the ground floor of a new BDSM series, and Club Desire is just the new dungeon to explore!
First off, I thoroughly loved Brent. He is just about the perfect Dom. He is understanding, compassionate, protective and caring. Having completely transformed himself from the outcast he was in high school, and once again meeting up with the object of his teenage infatuation, Brent was sexy and I adored him and Sandra together as th ...more
This story was "okay", but failed to captivate and wow me. It seemed to lack originality and didn't stand out from any of the hundreds of other D/s books that were released on the heels of 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. It was a quick read that was straightforward and a nice enough way to pass some time, but I'll probably forget all about it within a week or two.
For those that are curious, the s ...more
Sandra has come back to her home town of Pheonix to escape an abusive Dom from her dungeon in New York , with a recommendation from the owner of her New York dungeon, Master Mason of a new club for her to join when home; Club Desire.
Brent Weston, could not believe that the girl of his dreams from high school was sitt ...more
My Obsession by Cassie Ryan is a great author. Her novel was well written and descriptive. It has everything I like in an erotic romance. Besides the BDSM elements, the hot/sexy DOM, and a heroine I can cheer for – it has a great story. Sandra Barry leaves New York and her abusive Dom, Diego, and returns home to Arizona where she seeks refuge at Club Desire ...more
Oh this is an amazing start to a new series. I might have a new favorite dungeon to visit. I've read Ms. Ryan before and enjoyed, and this is one of my favorite genres...I was not disappointed to have requested it. Master Brent is an amazing Dom. Sandra, although she had a bad "Dom," she didn't dwell on the past. There are so many great secondary characters I can't wait to read about. I just hope Dex is next.
It started out a little slow for me, but that was ok. I liked the buildup. I wasn’t left with questions at the end. But I do hope there are more books for the other characters. Well mainly Dex. I really want his story. EX-FBI agent who teaches self-defense classes by day, Dom by night. Ohh yeah.
Sandra is very new to the BDSM scene. She ends up in a very abusive relationship with a Dom. She is so scared that she drops everything and high tales it to her hometown. No jo ...more

Her kink is the one constant in her life. Armed with a note from one of the Dom's in New York, she walks into the hottest dungeon in Phoenix, Club Desire.
Brent Weston was that geeky kid in high school. He was always left out of ...more
I really enjoyed this book. Sandra has been in the BDSM lifestyle for awhile, but then things go wrong with her Dom and she moves across the country to get away. Missing the BDSM lifestyle Sandra applys for membership at a new club and the owner is someone from her past but she doesn’t realize that. Brent is sex on a stick and he remembers Sandra when he sees her but she doesn’t remember him because he is not th ...more
My Obsession (Club Desire #1) was everything that you’d expect from a BDSM Erotic novel.
We have our main character, Sandra, a woman who’s running from her abusive ex-Dom, Diego. Then we have Brent, an old school mate of Sandra’s. Brent has made a name for himself back in Sandra’s home town, running his own BDSM club, Club Desire.
Sandra finds herself back in her home town after leaving Diego to try a fresh start. Finding a new BD ...more
I loved this book. It was very hot and I loved way the BDSM lifestyle was portrayed.
Brett was so sweet and caring yet and incredibly sexy Dom. Sandra had a lot going on in her life, but the way she handled it all was so believable and made me really relate to her and her fears.
The naughty scenes were HOT. The BDSM was excellent. For once we saw the measures taken to protect everyone in the scene and the true gift of submission given to a Dom instead of it being taken.
I only wish we'd ...more
“The sexy man who had captured her attention walked around her in a slow circle, examining her with dark appreciation in his eyes. He radiated Dom with every breath. It was as if the entire world was his to do with as he wished.”
4 super sexy bdsm stars!! This was a hot read, I really seemed to enjoy it from the beginning to end.
In this erotic story of temptation and total surrender for readers ofSylvia Day and J. Kenner, a powerful m ...more
My Obsession by Cassie Ryan is a very steamy romance, and one that I greatly enjoyed. It’s the story of Sandra Barry, a relative newbie to the BDSM scene, who’s fled New York because of a stalker, and Brent Weston – Master Brent – the owner of Club Desire, a BDSM dungeon in Phoenix, where Sandra has just become a member.
But there’s more to them than that – they went to h ...more
What all should I say besides I love the book. In my opinion, the author not only knows how to write a story, but to draw the reader into the plot as well.
Though it starts slow, the speed and action, all the action heats up quickly between Sandra and Brent. Our hero and heroine are old classmates, yet she does not recognize him from school, but he recognizes the ...more
So, we have Sandra the little sub who has had a pretty battered past. The BDSM world was not kind to her at all! She had a half-assed Dom for her first experience and then an abusive Dom as her second. The club she belonged to didn't step in until it was almost too ...more
As much as the lover-turned-stalker/homicidal maniac has been played, this one was pretty cool.
Brent was adorable, and sexy at the same time. I just loved him.
I mean come on, he has had a crush on Sandra from high school. And now she's back because her abusive piece of shit ex boyfriend was going to kill her. So Brent just takes her in and protects her, helps her find a job, helps her get some self defense classes. He w ...more
Cassie Ryan is a new to me author. I'm glad I found her.
Sandra is running. She runs from a past that isn't good. She's also running from trouble that if it finds her..will be bad. Really Bad.
Brent hasn't always been the strong, self-reliant man he is now. His past isn't something he likes to think about.
Then one day the two clash together. Almost as if fate has a hand in it.
See, Brent owns and runs an exclusive club that Sandra wants to join.
What Sandra doesn't know though is, ...more
This was a very enjoyable and entertaining read. It had enough plot and angst to not be too romantic; enough back-story to be engaging; plenty of lust-filled moments to get the reader heated; and a desirable conclusion. I thought that the twist in the plot worked well, and was not overplayed. The gentle steps through D/s worked well against the backdrop of her past. And the side characters such as Dex, Logan and Michelle ...more
Probably closer to 3.5 stars, but I rounded up for heat. This book jumped into the steamy stuff a little too quickly and I would have preferred just a bit more set up, but Ryan didn't leave anything out. I fully understood the background of Sandra and Brent and followed along with their relationship. I liked the intrigue with Diego, but I would have liked a little bit more backstory about him and Sandra as well as more information about Dex and ...more

Overall Stars: 3.5 rounding up to 4
First, Cassie Ryan is a wonderful author and I have enjoyed her books in the past. She writes erotic romance that takes the reader into the world of the characters. Cassie does a wonderful job continuing her superb writing in My Obsession.
My Obsession is a story heavily laden with the world of BDSM, p...more
This book read like a sex manual to me. There was a lot of thinking about sex, talking about sex, having sex. Just sex, sex, sex. There's a lot of sexual overtones right through the book. It's like reading someone with sex constantly on the brain. F ...more
My Obsession is book #1 in the Club Desire series and the first book I have read by this author. I was gifted a copy of this book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I LOVE a good kinky sex book, FSOG is kind of tame and I quite enjoy a really filthy little smutfest!!!
My Obsession has all the elements to be a brilliant book, but unfortunately it just doesn’t work for me. It’s too polite, it’s almost too nice!!! Brent is an ok Dom ...more
