The latest story in Susan Arden' s Bad Boys series is the darkest she has written. This book is an adult read and not for those who are easily shocked but that said it is a compelling story full of heat and emotion.

Brandon leads a double life. He breeds and trains horses on the Evermore Ranch but also part owns a sex club. His shadow life lets him be his true self the one he hides from his close knit family but lately b

Brandon is an intense man, "standing to her side, he nodded. A muscle along his sculpted jaw twitched. "Evening. Didn't we meet earlier?" I mean he is having some serious attraction to Mia, "who the eff cared if they'd just met or not? His di**, for one, could not care less about timelines. All he wanted to do was get rid of his clothes, her clothes and thrust balls-deep until they both were sated first, exhausted second." I meanI just love him, "and that's what you want.

This is my first Susan Arden book and it won't be my last! I loved it! It was so sexy and dirty (in a really, really good way!). Mia is going to school because she's hoping to become a therapist. She's close to graduating but wants to find out why any woman would want to be dominated by any man. Mia decides to go undercover at Spurs & Leather. She encounters Brandon. He begins to show her exactly how he came to be the 'hea

First off this book has been provided to me by the author for my honest review.

I have never read a book by Susan Arden and can say I was happily shocked. The details, the sex, the love the suspense. This book has it all.

Mia is doing her graduate thesis on a submissive's mind. Brandon owns the sex club that she is observing. The sparks between these two are incredible. I couldn't wait to see how their relationship evolved!!

I was so happy to see the details in every scene were done down to a T. M

I received a copy for an honest review and to be honest this book deserves more than 5 stars

Collared by a cowboy..... I think yes. Oh Brandon, hes a hot dom that works at Spurs & Leather, a private club in Paris. Mia is studying women sexuality.

I love this book, it was hot and fun. WARNING: once you start to read it you will be sucked into Mia and Brandon's world. I love Susan's writing style and the detail she book into this book and all her other book shows that she is a genius at writing

3 and half stars, rounding it up to 4 HOT stars!!

First of all, I think that I could have enjoyed this book more, if I'd read the first 4 books before this one. I'm not sure one can give it a just review without reading the other books first.

Second, this was a fast-paced book, you kinda get into it quickly; and suddenly you're finished! In a good way ;)

Love this series! The author has a way of sucking you into a story. The Mclemore's are awesome. This story shows you a little into the lives of a Dom and his sub and shows you that really the sub is the one in control of the relationship, he may control her body but she controls what goes on and how far it will go and that he gets pleasure from pleasuring her. I thoroughly enjoyed this book it was so well written. This book had a little of everything humor, some action serious issues(rarely addr ...more

Hmmm what can I say! This was a really good story, loved how timid Mia came across but she was really sassy with a smart mouth.

How sweet was the big bad Dom? Brandon was great, very attentive, although sometimes its a little hard to believe that someone can know what the other person is feeling or wanting, especially as they have only know each other for a very short time.

The scenes were fab to the point that I wanted to be in Mia's place enjoying what she was.

Brandon was a very loyal, trustwort

I really enjoyed this book. It was HOT! However I have to say that there were a few parts in the book where what was happening didn't make sense or just didn't seem to fit into the book, it didn't affect the story or your enjoyment of the book but it did make me deduct a star from an otherwise 5 star read.

Mia wants to write a thesis on female sexuality and one of the aspects that she wishes to write about is that of a submissive/dom relationship. This leads her to Spurs & Leather and Brandon

I received an ARR copy in return for an honest review.

I had high hopes for this book. When reading the description I was reminded of Cowboy Casanova by Lorelei James, but Collared falls way short of that mark.

After getting to the halfway point in the book, I got the feeling that the story was cobbled together to connect a lot of sex scenes. I wasn't invested in the main characters at all, and really didn't believe that they would fall for each other so fast and completely. I was never really cle

Maybe Mia expected a little wild and a little crazy. However, she had no idea what was in store for her when she began researching the BDSM club for her thesis and this was the perfect place to start. She wanted to go above and beyond to help young women who had been victims of sever and traumatic abuse. Although she hadn’t planned on uncovering her own deepest desires, but with Brandon crossing that line came all too easy. But when it’s time to leave can he convince her to stay?

I can't rate this book because it was okay to me I didn't love it and I didn't hate it, but okay is only 2 stars and I wouldn't want to bring the rating down. 2 stars looks bad and it wasn't a bad book.

Received from author for an honest review.

Brandon McLemore is a real cowboy in every way. He's a handsome, confident stud who is part owner of a sex club and he is also a well known Dom. He breaks in new fillies ( horses and women) and is a badass. He is not looking for a relationship or a sub to train until Mia walks into his club. He finds himself drawn to her.

Mia is going to collage because she's wants to become a therapist. She's close to graduating but wants to find out why any woman would want to be dominated by a man. She decides to go to Brandon's club because it is the least intimating of the sex/dom clubs around.
She ends up becoming Brandon's sub and wearing his collar she actually enjoys it.

This is the first book I have read by Susan Arden and I loved it! I have already bought a few more books because I thought this one was so good. I will have to start at the beginning of the series and read every last one! Mia is in grad school and ends up at Spurs & Leather to do her thesis. Brandon isn’t aware of Mia’s intentions when she walks through the door but he is already fascinated by her. Brandon’s ex-girlfriend did a number on him and he has taken a break from being the house Dom ...more

Thank God is over, I think I get into this one with too high expectations and was awfully dissapointed.
On the bright side, it is (somewhat) well written and has a lot of steamy pages (and I mean a LOT) but even that couldn't get me in the mood of reading it with other feeling different than a what a chore makes you feel.
The whole idea in the blurb looked ok but just put in motion, it didn't work. It was silly and all kind of absurd that project of hers, that the reader is not even given the cha

I don't normally like erotica because it's usually a lot of sex scenes with a flimsy excuse of a plot, very boring. This is not the case, this book has a real strong plot, two well-developed characters, a lovely love story and to top it off, intrigue. Mia is a graduate psychology student, specializing in sexual therapy, and she wants to investigate the Spurs and Leathers sex club. Brandon has two lives: the cowboy who raises throughbed horses and the Resident Dom at the Spurs and Leathers sex cl ...more

Wow! I can be a very picky reader when it comes to the BDSM themed romance type stories, but I am more than happy to say that I definitely enjoyed this one. It was deliciously hot and something different to what I've used to. I love the lifestyle and I happen to personally enjoy cowboys so Brandon was all fantasy rolled up into one character and then in comes sweet, bookish,adventurous, an easy to relate to Mia. What a combination. Mia thinks she can come into Brandon's BDSM scene objectively li ...more

This is a really good book. It has an engaging storyline, it is not too dark, nor too sweet. It is hot and steamy, and has a run of plot twists which kept me slightly nervous. I consider the need to shut a book for a minute or two to calm down to be a clear indication of a good book. That happened more than a few times. There were some lovely humorous moments too, as well as high drama.

I highly recommend you grab a copy, go hide away somewhere and be prepared to travel to Paris, Texas, home to

What was supposed to be a lesson in submissive behavior ends up becoming an undeniable connection. Mia is trying to find her own way; her ex used her and dropped her for a more suitable wife.

I received this book from the The Fifty Shades Support group in exchange for a honest review.

Gotta throw it out there that I've never gone for a cowboy erotica romance novel, so receiving this book was a good tryout for me. Surprisingly I enjoyed the book much more than I initially expected, but at a certain point, I sort of tuned out from the plot? It's possible that I'm used to really angsty and intense plots, so this was quite a tone-down for me.

Wow. Mia and Brandon are explosive together. The book starts out very detailed and really gets your mind wondering what Mia & Brandon are each looking for. Mia has a side to her that she seems afraid to show completely. Brandon isn't afraid to show his naughty side, but that isn't a turn off for Mia.
This book has a lot of exciting twists and turns. When the exes come back to town things really begin to get crazy.

She wanted to do a study on BDSM. In order to do her thesis she needed to observe the S&L club and learned about the Dom and Sub world. Brandon didn't know Mia was here to observe. So when they both met Brandon was very arrogant and Mia was trying to fit in. The story was great. I loved the beginnin ...more

Well this is one of those occasions I wish I could give another half star as a four and a half stars seems more accurate. It was really good. Brandon was all alpha male and Mia was sweet, smart and feisty. This was my first book by author, Susan Arden, but Hallelujah, Brandon has brothers and they all have stories so I'm going to indulge in all of them.
