Commanded by Stacey Kennedy Blog Tour


Club Sin comes alive once again in this decadent new romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy, perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey.

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.

“She’s lucky to be alive.”

Sawyer heard his father’s statement as he took in the sight before him. Even after a full minute of standing in the hospital room he couldn’t process seeing his little sister, Ashlyn, lying in the bed. The harsh scent of antiseptic in his nose, the beeping noise coming from the monitor, and the morphine drip attached to the needle in his sister’s hand all faded into the distance as the beaten state of her face filled his vision.

Black and blue bruises covered her cheekbones. Cuts and scratches spread over every inch of creamy white skin, and stitches outlined the right side of her mouth. Only her long brown hair remained untouched, and that lay beneath the bandages on her head.

Consumed with a wrath foreign to him, Sawyer inhaled a sharp breath through his nose, controlling the desire to explode. He fisted his hands and turned to his parents, Beth and Roger Quinn, asking the obvious: “Where is Travis?”

“Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, son.” His father—a few inches shorter and slightly softer in the middle, with a full head of salt-and-pepper hair—continued in a stony voice, “We need to wait for Ashlyn to wake up. We can’t make assumptions about who attacked her.”

Sawyer heard what his father said, but the darkness rushing into his Roger’s hazel eyes contradicted his words, a confirmation to Sawyer and what he suspected. Travis, Ashlyn’s boyfriend of three months, had done this to her.

His father added, “The police are involved and are interviewing friends and acquaintances to see if anyone knew anything or saw anything out of the ordinary.”

“This attack is brutal, and based on what I’ve seen, it looks personal.” As Sawyer spoke he gestured to his beaten baby sister. “Look at her, for Christ’s sake.” Sawyer was a cop, and he’d seen it before. A beating like this, so intense and violent, typically involved someone the victim knew. “We all know Travis is capable of this and more.”

Travis was an up-and-coming mixed martial arts fighter and had the skills to beat someone into unconsciousness. Sawyer suspected Travis had used steroids on more than one occasion, and he’d seen evidence of Travis’s ’roid rage from time to time. It had never been directed at his baby sister before, though.

A sob ripped from Sawyer’s mother’s mouth. Noticing the pallor on her face, he moved toward her, offering comfort. His chest constricted as he wrapped his arms around his mom’s slender frame. “Please don’t cry, Mom.” Nothing broke him more than to hear her weep.

“Look at what he’s done to her.” His mother sobbed against Sawyer’s chest, her short curly blond hair tickling his neck as she clung to his black T-shirt. “How could he do this?”

Anger bit into Sawyer like a sharp blade while he examined his battered sister. So sweet, so tiny, and so young—she had turned twenty-two only three weeks ago. He was eleven years older, and he had always tried to protect her. His parents hadn’t planned on having a second child—given his mother’s endometriosis, they had thought that conceiving again after Sawyer’s birth would have been impossible. They were shocked when they found out about her pregnancy, but Sawyer was overjoyed that he’d have a playmate, even if it was a much younger sister.

“He’ll be arrested.” Sawyer gently rubbed his mother’s back. “Don’t doubt that.”

“How will she recover from this? My poor baby . . .”

His mother’s despairing voice made Sawyer vividly imagine pummeling Travis. Sawyer rejected the thought; as a member of the police force, sworn to serve and protect, he had to let justice be served through the law. Having served in the military and now as a member of Las Vegas’s SWAT team, however, he’d found that sometimes his morals got in the way of what his heart wanted to do, and right now what his heart wanted was to make Travis feel pain.

He held on to his mother tightly, feeling her trembling beneath his arms, and it made Sawyer realize just how Travis had broken into a happy life full of happy memories. In his line of work, he often saw people who experienced horrific childhoods. Not Sawyer and Ashlyn. Their dad, a white-collar worker, had always exceeded the role of a father. His mother, a stay-at-home mom, lived through her children. Travis had brought darkness into the Quinn family.

Sawyer wouldn’t forget that.

Angie☆☆☆
I enjoy this series and even if you haven’t read previous books you can still read this and enjoy it as well. This was a fast read with a little bit of angst and drama. Sawyer and Chloe are working together to catch the guy who beat up Sawyer’s sister. Sawyer is into BDSM and Chloe is not, they are both hot for each other and have some steamy scenes together. I am not sure if it was because the book wasn’t that lengthy that it seems like some things were just wrapped up with a nice little bow too quickly or what but I didn’t care for that too much, I think the author could have made the book a little longer and gone into the BDSM part between Chloe and Sawyer more.

Characters: Well written and believable
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This has to be the sexiest series ever! Fanning myself! Whew! It's hot in here. Exciting book as Sawyer and Chloe ignite... Sexually charged atmosphere as Sawyer hires Chloe to look for the man that beat up his younger sister. Chloe has a profound innocence about her that attracts the Dom in Sawyer. Love this BDSM series even though this book was tame compared to others in this series. I really enjoyed it. Five stars!


Rachael☆☆☆☆☆
This is the first book in this series I’ve read, but it was written so that I wasn't lost. In fact, I loved it. The chemistry was off the charts and so incredibly hot! I will say there was a few times at the beginning where I felt like I had missed something, but it was explained enough that it wasn't a big deal, plus, I knew that I was coming in missing the first 5 parts of the story.

I wish we could've seen more of Sawyer with rope because boy he was flipping HOT when he had it. There was a very minimal BDSM aspect to this book so I wished for more of that, but the other things going on in the book kept me interested enough that I didn't really mind.

I can't wait to read more from this series and author. Great read with a couple that has to work through some challenges and choices that aren't easy to make.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series, and this was the perfect ending for the gang. It could be read as a standalone, but really, why miss the pleasure of reading them all?

Here the story is turned, as Sawyer realises just what is important. The message is clear, and he is ready to listen. I loved the heat, the passion, and yet the gentleness. He conquered his demons through BDSM, and now finds out what matters most. The plot is enough to get the message across, and is tense, but the reader doesn't have to wait too long for a resolution. A pretty hot, sexy read, with only a hint of public play, but plenty of private passion.

I shall be watching to see what Ms. Kennedy presents next for our pleasure!

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—always 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.
