“Claimed has the right amount of sexy, pushed me far to my soft limits without getting close to my hard limits…” ~ Under the Covers

As I read this book, I kept thinking of my friends *cough* cobloggers *cough* who are avid readers of BDSM and Erotic romance novels and I can’t help but wonder if any of them are closet subs or dom.  Presley, the heroine of this book differs from them by a whole lot of balls.  Presley is also an avid reader of BDSM and erotic novels.  After finding out that her roomie is a sub and active member of Club Sin aka BDSM dungeon; well, she builds the courage and give it a go. Major balls she has, right?  Things definitely happen for a reason because that’s where she meets the owner of Club Sin.  Dimitri is not only the owner but also the Master of the Dungeon.  He has been without a permanent Sub for years and wouldn’t you know it, after meeting Presley….. that status won’t last very long.

BDSM can be tricky for certain readers like myself. I have hard limits when it comes to the books I read that may be soft for others. Claimed has the right amount of sexy, pushed me far to my soft limits without getting close to my hard limits if that makes sense.  I thought this book was realistic in terms reactions from someone just starting to dab into this world.  Presley’s response to her first exposure to “the dungeon”, her first time as a sub and her reactions to her hard limits were all very believable.  I really like her. As I said, it takes humongous balls for anyone who is willing to come out of her shell and I applaud her for doing just that.  Dimitri did a good job as a Dom as well.  He knew Presley’s hard limits and honestly, as soon as he fell for her, they became his hard limits too.  As a couple, Dimitri and Presley were plenty hot and enough romantic, making their story a great read.  Ms. Kennedy made a fan out of me, no doubt about that.

STACEY KENNEDY is the USA Today bestselling author of the CLUB SIN series. Growing up, Stacey's mind wandered the path less traveled and that path most often led to love. She has always broken rules and she continues to feed off emotion – staying true to her heart. Those traits are now the bones of her stories. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who puts any of the heroes in her books to shame, and their two young children. If she's not on mom duty or plugging away at a new story, you'll find Stacey camping in the summer, hibernating in the winter and obsessing over Penny Dreadful, Game of Thrones and Sons of Anarchy.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
