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

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

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.

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

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

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 takes off for home because a crazy stalker man who was her abusive dom won't leave her alone. She leaves everything behind, but can't let go of the lifestyle that she wants and needs to live. She shows up at a BDSM club armed with a letter of recommendation and a desire to submit and community. She meets with a Dom that rings all those right bells, but not one that should. He looks familiar, but she can't place how. Turns out Brent knows her from school and had a huge crush on her, but ch ...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.

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.

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

Cassie Ryan has officially built my favorite fictional dungeon ever!! Who wouldn't love to go play in a dungeon that has the look of a ancient castle?! Besides creating my favorite dungeon she also hit on my favorite type of romance.

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

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.

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.

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

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

This is another one of those stories I started with trepidation because my friend Bambi did not finish it. That said, there have been books that she has not finished which I have enjoyed so I'm always willing to give the book the benefit of the doubt.

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
