With one look he consumed me.
With one touch he marked me.
With one kiss he owned me.
With one whisper he claimed me.
“No matter where you go or who you’re with, you’ll always be mine.”
Ellie Stevens thought she had moved on from the domineering man who abducted her. Now living in Hawaii and following her dreams, no one is going to keep her down. But things aren’t always as they seem.
Kayne Rivers reluctantly let Ellie go, but just because she’s gone now, doesn’t mean she’ll be gone forever. She is his, and he won’t stop until he’s reclaimed her as his own.
Claimed is a dark erotic romance. Please pay close attention to the use of the words dark, erotic, and romance. It has intense sexual situations, a Master/slave relationship, mild abuse, and some violence. Reader discretion is advised.
HOLY KINKINESS!! Before I came across Owned (Book 1) I had not read many books which could be classified as dark. But holy hell can M Never draw you into a story that pushes the boundaries in every sense of the word. Hence I knew that Claimed was a must read for 2015. Please note: you must read Owned (Book 1) prior to reading this book.
There is an authors warning on this book for a reason, and readers must really take note before deciding if this book is for them. If you are brave enough, then you will not be disappointed.
Claimed starts a year after the ending of Owned. While Ellie has gone to Hawaii to live out what she believes is her dream, Kayne on the other hand is just living. The one thing that Kayne knows without a doubt is that Ellie is his. This story follows the journey of Kayne reclaiming what he wants and owns and Ellie finding and accepting who she truly is – Kayne’s.
Kayne is the incarnate of a Dominant alpha. He knows what he wants and plans to take what he needs. He is a Master in every sense of the word. But despite all of this, you can tell that he really does love Ellie and would do anything to make her world right.
Ellie definitely grows in this book from book 1. Finally she is able to freely admit what she wants with Kayne. Her personal growth and strength in her submission is shown throughout the entire book. She comes to understand what her submission means in their relationship and how the power exchange strengthens the both of them.
Oh and I fell even more in love with Jett in this book. I don’t really want to call him a secondary character because he play’s such a pivotal role in this book (just as he did in book 1). I can’t wait to read more about the man.
This book is hot as hell. The chemistry and sexual tension is explosive. I felt like I needed a cold shower after many of the scenes that were laced with a heavy dose of kink & sexiness.
But this is not all that this book is. Underlying the romance is an adventure packed storyline that takes you on some many twists and turns that I literally did not expect what happened. And I usually suspect plot lines early on.
If you are a lover of smut that crosses onto the dark side and covers all areas of grey, then this book is for you. You will fall in love with the characters even more than book 1. I highly recommend it. Grab a copy today and get tied up in the story.
