Review: Tamed (Club Sin #5) by Stacey Kennedy

USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy returns to the tantalizing world of Club Sin in an enticing novel of control and surrender.

Porter Marshall has nearly achieved his goal of becoming a Club Sin Master, but his new sub poses a much bigger challenge than he anticipated. Despite their mutual attraction and red-hot dungeon sessions, Kenzie Hart plays her own games. Her bratty, you-can’t-break-me attitude masks terrible personal hurt—pain that only the exquisite touch of a skilled Dom can release. But when Porter suggests taking their connection to the outside world, Kenzie denies him . . . which only makes him want her more.

Kenzie can’t ignore the raw, fierce bond she has with Porter. But she can’t give in to his dangerous demands, either. Is the passion they share real, or is he using her to solidify his status at Club Sin? And yet, who else can she trust with the shattering secrets she holds within? As Porter expertly brings her to the point of no return, Kenzie surrenders her body—and, piece by piece, her heart.

Tamed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

I have been looking forward to this addition of the Club Sin series for a couple of reasons.

Reason one – Kenzie Hart.  The sassy brat that has been a part of the club since its beginning.  Everyone loves her, but no one seems to really know her.  She keeps all the Doms at arm’s length, only allowing them to provide what she believes she needs and that does not include any closeness – like cuddling.

Reason two – Porter Marshal.   *sigh*  He is relatively new to Club Sin but has been active at Chains.  He used to dom Cora, Master Aiden’s new wife, (See book two – Bared) so he has been around for a while.  Now he wants to earn the title of Master at Club Sin and Kenzie is his test.

Let the games begin.  Porter is not what Kenzie was expecting for a Dom.  He is gentle and not easily irritated.  But then, Kenzie doesn’t respond the way Porter had expected either.  It would appear, nothing is as expected.

I discovered why I have always liked Kenzie.  I understand her.  Now if I could have a Porter to do for me . . . *sigh*

The budding romance between these two was heartwarming.  I enjoyed it.  Too bad they had to deal with . . .  can you believe it?  The Russian mob?  *shakes head*  They do seem to be getting around these days.  I recently read another book where they were messing with the heroine in Seattle.  Now they are in Las Vegas?  Whether it was actually the mob or just someone who liked to appear as such, he sure stirred things up for Kenzie.  Made for some interesting suspense.  It was a nice touch and added a bit of story.  I liked that.

But, of course, there was the really HOT action at Club Sin as always.  *fanning self*  You don’t have to have read the other books in this series to enjoy Tamed.  It works well as a stand-alone.  However, you won’t want to miss the other Master’s stories.  They do wonder in and out of each other’s books and their stories are just as hot and fun.

If you like Cherise Sinclair’s Shadowlands or Kallypso Masters’ Rescue Me series, you will like this series too.   A nice mix of characters that are more family than friends and a joy to visit with in each book.  I look forward to the next story.

    Great review, Pansy! Unfortunately, this was my least favorite book in the series because of Kenzie’s actions. I didn’t like her or connect with her feelings. But Porter…oh my word, I LOVED Porter!

      Thank you Michelle. I can get why you wouldn’t like Kenzie, not easy to connect. Me? I ended up having issues with Mary in Freed. But isn’t that what makes the world go round. 😉 Different strokes and all that.
