In a novel of sensual passion and deep commitment from the author of My Obsession, an undercover cop finds a soulmate who surrenders to his healing touch.
Fiercely independent and determined to free herself from her father’s manipulation, tech expert Kate Fretwell finds a refuge in L.A.’s elite BDSM dungeon scene as the hot new thing to political and Hollywood A-listers. Still, all that glitters gets old, and Kate soon tires of the stream of well-heeled masters who expect her to be at their beck and call. Then she meets a very different kind of Dom—one whose quiet confidence, strength, and command bring her most willingly to her knees.
Undercover FBI agent Dex Alexander fits right into his assignment to expose terrorist links to one of L.A.’s most popular clubs. The case has reawakened a desire to find the perfect companion, and he knows that beautiful, vulnerable Kate is a woman he could love. But when her father’s corruption unwittingly makes Kate the target of a bigger enemy, Dex brings her to his Phoenix home—and his dungeon, Club Desire. Here she shows him just how eager she is to give him everything . . . and more.

I was gifted this book for an honest review. I loved the story line and characters. Kate was a strong, independent person. Dax was intriguing and caring. They had great chemistry and were smoking hot together. The suspense kept me on my toes and ended great!
<3 Dex and Kate Together!
I hav eto say that I thought this was a great addition to the series even though I felt that it was more of a romantic suspense then an BDSM story. BDSM was the backdrop for the bigger picture which was why Undercover Agent Dex Alexander is in LA to begin with, Dex is looking for a terrorist group the FBI believes that tech expert Kate Fretwell has been helping. Kate is a member of the Dungeon a BDSM club so Dex goes undercover witht he hopes of becoming Kate's Dom for a while to see what she is hiding and if she has any knowlege of how she is being used.
The chemistry between Kate and Dex was great, and I loved the fact that he became protective of her before they even decided to do a scene or anything else. I wouldn't call this inta-love but it was close. The story was well written and has you guessing about everyone that Dex and Kate come into contact with.

In three words this book was sweet, spicy, and surprising!
This book was definitely something! This book is technically the second one in the Club Desire series, but it is also a standalone. Kate finds a sense of refuge in L.A.’s elite BDSM dungeon scene as a hot new thing to politicians and Hollywood A-listers. She eventually finds herself bored of the men who are becoming common to her but when a new and different Dom comes around, she rises an eyebrow and her interest is piqued. Dex, although a FBI agent, fits right in at these popular L. A. clubs. He's on an assignment, but his desire is awakened when he meets Kate as he figures she could possibly be someone he could love. Things take a more interesting turn as Kate becomes a target of a bigger enemy and Dex decides to take her to his Phoenix home. With that we get a mystery and a love story.
The characters in this one were probably my favorite part. Kate had spark in her attitude and wasn't willing to let herself get ran over. She was smart and often head strong and was paving the way for her own life even though her father wasn't rooting for her. Dex was also a smart and interesting character. One of the most notable things about him is that he finds what happens at the club Kate often goes to unacceptable and is against the way some are doing things. He makes sure to care for Kate and mutual consent was always a big thing for him. There was an instant and undeniable chemistry between the two and it started smoothly but intensely. And check out that interracial goodness on that cover!
This story wasn't incredibly suspenseful so you aren't sitting there trying to guess throughout the whole thing. This book is definitely more of an erotic romance and less of a mystery book. Between the characters and the story, their connection was what helped the story along so nicely. There were some parts that didn't completely wow me, but for the most part everything was dandy! This story was incredibly easy to read and was very well written! This one also wasn't emotionally draining. It is also more than evident that Cassie Ryan did an incredible amount of research. She showed multiple times what were the right ways and what were the wrong ways of doing things within the BDSM community. It's always great when readers get to see in a book, and with this one we also get good chemistry between characters within an interesting story!
And I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review!
