Review: Commanded  (Club Sin #6) by Stacey Kennedy
A dedicated cop, Sawyer Quinn blows off steam by immersing himself in his role as a Master at the hottest club in Las Vegas. But when Sawyer goes after the perp who brutally beat his sister, he teams up with Chloe Nash, a sexy private investigator who awakens a sweet new need: to keep her to himself, away from the dungeon of Club Sin. Chloe is beautiful, smart, and too innocent for the BDSM lifestyle. Sawyer’s never wanted a woman like this before. Is her love worth swearing off the one thing that keeps him sane?There’s something different about Sawyer: a commanding strength that pulls Chloe into a vortex of heady desire. But when she learns about his double life as a Dom, she’s shocked—and afraid she could never complete him. Then he saves her life, and just like that, Chloe knows she will be able to give him anything he desires. She is his—wherever and however he wants to take her.

commandedCommanded is book six in the Club Sin series by Stacey Kennedy. The series centers around each of the Masters at the BDSM club called Club Sin. This book is about Sawyer Quinn part of the local SWAT team! Wow! Hot, dominant, compassionate, and just a really nice guy. He needed something to give him direction again after discharging from the military as a sniper, so he trained to become a dominant. Chloe, a private investigator, is a wonderful heroine too. She is also confident, but with a side of calm, cool, and collected. She loves her job and does it well- she does not get rattled. After Sawyer’s sister is beaten by her boyfriend, he and Chloe team up to find him.

As Sawyer and Chloe delve into the investigation, their attraction for one another is renewed, having met a month prior. Chloe is innocent and has no idea that Sawyer has another side to him as a dominant for Club Sin. What Sawyer and Chloe have is nothing either experienced before and now that they have it, they don’t want to let it go. Sawyer tells Chloe about the BDSM club and she doubts she can be everything that Sawyer would need. Sawyer does not want to bring Chloe to the club to be on display. He is drawn to her innocence and doesn’t want her to change. He wants to be the one to teach her what he likes and to not be influenced by what she sees in the club. He’s a bit torn as he feels an obligation to the club and wonders if he can juggle both situations.

I have to say this was quite an enjoyable read. It moved at a pretty quick pace, but I never felt like the couples progression was rushed. It was an easy read for me. I also liked that there wasn’t a bunch of added drama that usually comes with a book like this. The plotline was steady and believable. There were quite a few sex scenes and although they were very erotic, they were not to the extreme or too graphic. The BDSM aspect was very underplayed so if that isn’t your cup of tea, you would definitely like this book. I do like a bit more graphic-ness myself, but I was happy with how the scenes played out.

Overall, Commanded was an intriguing and entertaining read. This was my first book by Stacey Kennedy and of the Club Sin Series. Now my curiosity is peaked and I need to read the others! Stacey Kennedy, you’ll be glad to know, that you absolutely have gained a new fan!

Excerpt 3


“Mom, Dad, this is Chloe Nash.” Sawyer turned to Chloe, who was standing behind him in the hospital room. “Chloe, these are my parents, Beth and Roger Quinn.”

Chloe offered her hand to his father. “I’m sorry to meet under these circumstances, Mr. Quinn.”

His father shook her hand, arching a curious brow at Sawyer.

Sawyer smiled in return, as his parents were well aware that he hadn’t had a girlfriend for more years than he wanted to count. He explained, “Chloe is a private investigator who works for a good friend of mine, Porter Marshall. She’s offered to help us locate Travis.”

“Oh, wonderful. Please call me Roger.” His father shook Chloe’s hand more firmly now, enclosing her hand in both of his. “We appreciate any help we can get.” His concerned eyes swept toward Sawyer’s mother, who sat in the chair next to her sleeping daughter. “I’m worried for Ashlyn, with Travis still out there.” The dark circles beneath his eyes confirmed his concern. It was clear that neither of Sawyer’s parents had slept much since Ashlyn’s attack, and Sawyer figured it’d stay that way until they caught Travis.

“Ash wakes up every couple of hours,” said his mother. “But she’s pretty out of it when she does.” She ran her fingers through her curly hair. “Do the police have any leads?”

“I’m afraid not,” Sawyer answered, noticing how his mom’s body sagged against the bed with disappointment. “Have either of you eaten anything today?”

His father shook his head. “We haven’t wanted to leave her.”

“Why don’t you go to the cafeteria?” Chloe interjected, her voice soft. “We can stay with Ashlyn while you get something to eat. The coffee is terrible, but it’s better than nothing.”

Sawyer’s heart warmed as he saw the sincere compassion in Chloe’s eyes. Christ, she was a beautiful woman. Her long chocolate-brown hair flowed over her shoulders, and her striking blue eyes reminded him of the ocean in Mexico. So clear. So pure. So honest. Her body, lush and full of curves, was perfect for his hands.

What he found more beautiful was her sweet concern for his parents and sister. When he first met her, his attraction had been a sexual one. For a month now she’d haunted him. How sweet would she taste? How pink would her cheeks become with pleasure? How would she sound when she moaned in ecstasy? But he hadn’t counted on the way his heart tripped around her.

Smart. Strong. Caring. Beautiful. She had that something the others didn’t. Which interested him, and soon became something he couldn’t ignore.

Chloe was, in fact, unlike any other woman he’d met. Too pure. Too innocent. Not in the BDSM lifestyle. Somehow knowing that made her all the more special. Deep down in his gut, he knew he hadn’t asked her to help him find Travis only because it would comfort Ashlyn. He had asked her also because of Sawyer’s curiosity over her. He wanted to discover why this little woman had captivated his mind for a damn month.

Snapping back into the moment, he turned his attention to his father. “Chloe’s right—you could use some food.” He placed a hand on his father’s shoulder. “We’ll stay here until you come back.”

His father nodded at Sawyer before taking his wife’s hand and helping her up from the chair. “Come on, Beth. A little break will give us strength. We have to take care of ourselves so we can take care of Ashlyn.”

“You’re right,” she agreed, if a bit reluctantly. It came as no surprise to Sawyer that his mom went straight to Chloe and wrapped her in a tight hug. “I don’t know you, dear. But if you’re helping us, that makes you a friend. I cannot thank you enough.”

A slight smile curved Chloe’s lips as she returned the hug. “No thanks required. Anyone who hurts a woman needs to be put behind bars.”

“I couldn’t agree with you more,” said his mother. She released Chloe, took her husband’s hand again, and added to Sawyer, “We won’t be long.”

Sawyer waited until his parents left the room before arching a brow at Chloe. “You see why finding Travis is so important?”

Chloe nodded. “They look beside themselves.” She approached the bed where his baby sister lay. A flurry of emotions passed over her face. “How old is Ashlyn?”


A soft curse issued from her mouth. “She’s so young to have to deal with something like this. You will get her counseling once she’s healed, right?”

“I hadn’t thought about it.” Sawyer went around to the other side of the bed, taking the seat where his mother had been. “But it’s a good idea. I’ll look into it once Travis is behind bars.”

“Good.” Chloe’s chin lifted. “She’ll need it.”

Sawyer hesitated, listening to his instincts. “Do you have experience with abuse?”

“Not personally.” Her strong glance swept to Sawyer. “But in high school one of my friends got beaten up pretty bad by her boyfriend. Her parents tried to hush up the whole thing—they were embarrassed, I guess.”

Another thing he liked about Chloe was the strength and confidence she emanated when she spoke. “What happened to the girl?”

“She killed herself.”

Sawyer looked at Ashlyn, resolving that such a thing would not happen to his sister. He’d make sure no one would ever blame the victim. “I would never allow Ash to go down such a dark path.”

“That’s good.” Chloe smiled softly at him. “She’s lucky to have you.”

Something in her smile stole his damn breath. He couldn’t pinpoint why Chloe had gotten to him on such an intense sexual level. Her mere presence—even her scent—was a trigger for him. On a very deep level, he seemed attuned to her.
