Mine by Stacey Kennedy Blog Tour

Dmitri and Presley—the scorching-hot couple who started it all in the USA Today bestseller Claimed—return to save Club Sin in the exhilarating new short novel from Stacey Kennedy.

Dmitri Pratt is living out his dream. Not only does he own the ultimate playground for the BDSM lifestyle, he’s found a special connection with his deliciously sexy sub, Presley Flynn, the woman who complements him in ways that go far beyond the bedroom. But when an anonymous blackmailer threatens to expose the elite, high-profile members of Club Sin in a notorious tabloid, Dmitri’s perfect world spirals out of control.

Before she met Dmitri, Presley never imagined she would find a Master who could deliver on all her hottest fantasies. Dmitri’s love and his sensual artistry surprise her every day, until he suddenly turns distant and cold. For the first time, Presley wonders where Dmitri’s heart truly lies: with her, or with Club Sin. As the life they’ve built together begins to crumble, Presley can only trust that Dmitri has what it takes—to defend what’s his, and win back the woman he cannot live without.

Mine is intended for mature audiences.

“Club Sin is no longer safe.”

Six words Dmitri Pratt had never imagined saying rushed from his mouth, and having said them out loud made them real. Sitting behind the cherrywood desk in his home office, Dmitri faced the men he’d appointed to oversee his exclusive BDSM dungeon, Club Sin.

Nestled by the bay window in the corner of the room, Club Sin Masters Kyler Morgan and Aidan McKnight sat on the black leather couch, frowns creasing their brows. Next to them on the wingback chairs, the other Club Sin Masters, Miles Sanchez and Porter Marshall, stared straight ahead in evident confusion.

Gutted by the realization of what lay before him, Dmitri shifted his focus to the Club Sin submissive standing near the doorway, awaiting his direction. “Please explain our situation, Sarah.”

Sarah’s head was bowed. Her long black hair curtained her face, yet it couldn’t shield the quick intake of breath passing through her cherry-red lips. “I’m not sure if you all know this, but I work for Gotcha!

Porter, a private investigator—who was physically suited for his job, being tall and solidly built—asked, “The tabloid?”

“Yep, that one.” Sarah’s head lifted, and she gazed at the men through her thick lashes, revealing shy brown eyes. “Earlier tonight my boss delivered an envelope of pictures to my house.”

Dmitri tightened his fists on his desk, preparing himself.

Sarah continued, “The pictures show some of the Club Sin members. Their names are on the photos.”


The police officer, Kyler, shot to his feet. His light brown hair was disheveled from his sudden movement, and his fists were clenched at his sides. “Someone has been talking pictures of us . . . here?”

Sarah shifted on her feet, giving a quick nod. “I’ve asked my boss for a few days to investigate the pictures. I thought that might buy you some time.”

“That was smart of you, Sarah,” said Aidan, a defense attorney and the most serious of the men.

Dmitri noted Sarah’s small smile at the compliment before she added, “You have to act fast to find the leak. I’ve got a week to investigate before she prints the story.”

Dmitri considered suing the tabloid. They could intervene before the story broke. The photographer could be resentful, though, and simply post the photos on the Internet. Frustrated by the thought, he scanned the faces of his close friends, knowing the decision also belonged to them. “Thank you for relaying what you’ve learned, Sarah. I’d ask that you excuse yourself now.” She turned to exit the room. Before she left, Dmitri added, “Please keep this information to yourself until I can talk to the members.”

“I understand.” She shut the door behind her.

Silence remained in her absence.

Sarah had told him about the pictures a half hour ago, and Dmitri had yet to accept it. Conflicted by his personal feelings and his responsibility to Club Sin members, he examined the twelve pictures on his desk. The faces staring back were of himself and his submissive, Presley, plus the Club Sin Masters and their submissives, along with the lone bachelor, Miles.

The only Master not pictured was Sawyer Quinn, which told Dmitri that the pictures had been taken sometime in the last year. Sawyer had left behind Club Sin and the BDSM lifestyle before marrying Chloe Nash five months ago. A frown pulled on Dmitri’s mouth as he also noted images of a well-known heart surgeon who was a Dominant and a couple of submissives who had high-powered jobs.

While the pictures didn’t show anyone inside the dungeon, all of them showed women in a vulnerable moment, with wind catching coats or skirts and revealing a garter belt or lacy panties beneath. Dmitri didn’t doubt that someone had spent a lot of time staking out his house, waiting for the perfect moment to capture the damning pictures.

Aidan rose from his place on the couch and approached Dmitri’s desk. Brows drawn together over his gray eyes, he picked up a picture of himself and his wife. In bold writing it was captioned Aidan and Cora McKnight. “What the fuck is this?” he growled.

“Believe me, I wish I knew.” Dmitri gripped the arms of his chair, staying put as the other Masters positioned themselves around Aidan to see the pictures. Waves of anger ignited in the room, making the air thick.

Porter’s hazel eyes blazed when he saw the photo of his wife, Kenzie. “Does Sarah have any suspicions of who’s behind this?”

Dmitri shook his head. “Her boss is keeping the person’s identity a secret.”

Miles grabbed one of the photos. “Is Sarah in any of these pictures?”

“No.” Dmitri understood the implication. “But she brought the information forward. I doubt she’s involved.” He drew in a long breath, settling his rage, not wanting to accuse anyone who didn’t deserve it. “In fact, I can’t imagine anyone in Club Sin doing this to the members.”

Nods followed.

Porter cursed at the photo in his hand and then dropped it on the desk. “What about enemies? Anyone piss off someone lately?”

Of course the private investigator went straight to the motive of vengeance, Dmitri thought. As Dmitri watched each Master shake his head, even he couldn’t come up with a suspect. “The casino brings some heated conversations with my competitors”—that went hand in hand with being the president of one of Vegas’s top casinos—“but that said, I don’t imagine anyone would feel threatened enough by me to do this.”

Aidan brushed a hand across the stubble on his jaw and nodded in agreement. “I can make enemies in my line of work. But nothing that warrants this defamation.”

Kyler crumpled the picture of himself and his wife, Ella, before tossing it in the garbage can. “We all piss off someone in some way every day.” His lips thinned. “Christ, this could ruin us all.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a short novel involving Dmitri and Presley from the very first book of the series. While the book starts off with a great prologue I was disappointed in most of the book. In the prologue we see how much love and chemistry there is between Dmitri and Presley still and then BAM all of the sudden the mood changes and honestly at first I thought it was a joke or a dream or something. Dmitri found out some bad news regarding the club, he has a meeting with his other Doms and then when he comes back from that meeting all of the sudden Presley is doubting everything. It just didn’t make sense that soon. The doubt should have happened gradually, not after an hour long meeting that she was excluded from. The whole book just seemed thrown together for me. The chemistry we felt in previous books and even the prologue was gone. The ending was good but honestly, the author could have just had a short story with the ending as a way to end the series, she didn’t need to throw a book together. I am sure most people will love the book but it just wasn’t for me.

Characters: Well written
Sex: Yes but not much as previous books
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: BDSM/Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

I loved the book before this one so I was excited for this one.... however, I felt like this wasn't nearly as good. In fact, I found myself so bored that I started skimming pages, which I never do. So many things were repeated so much that it really lost my interest.

I didn't care for the way Presley gave up on Dmitri so fast or the way Dmitri treated her when he was handling such a stressful situation. I think they both showed they really didn't have the relationship they thought they did because of the way both of them handled it.

I think a big issue was presented and then fumbled along to solve the mystery and then resolved so quietly it became an almost non-issue, which was sad, except for the drama it caused which was completely unnecessary.

Sure, the end couple of scenes were cute and helped redeem the book, but not completely. I could see there was a set up for another series (or likely anyway) with the men in San Francisco and in the end it felt like that was what this book was for…to wrap up this series and to set up for another series, not about the characters it should've been about.

Hot, sexy, quick read! This is the first book I’ve read in the series and I had no problems reading it as a stand-alone. Club Sin is in trouble when someone threatens to expose the members. Dmitri, owner of the club, is extremely stressed about the possibility of the members being exposed and he’s pulling away from his sub Presley. Presley is a strong woman who only signed on to be a sub in the bedroom, on a relationship front she wants a man that will stand beside her not push her behind him and she puts her foot down when Dmitri won’t share any of his burden with her. Dmitri is just trying to keep Presley from suffering any guilt over the anything happening with the club while he gets it all straightened out.

I really enjoyed the quick progression of this short read. The author manages to squeeze in great humor, steamy sex, and intriguing mystery. I highly recommend checking it out.

Disclaimer* This is my first read of this series. I read as a standalone, but I wish I would have read the series in order to get the fullest out of this book. I do want to go back and read the previous six books, the review may change after some of the information is put into context.*

Club Sin, a private BDSM club was created by Dmitri to honor his friend Charles. When someone has grudge against a person in the club, the life in Club Sin will never be the same. Who is the target? How can Dmitri keep everyone safe? Will Dmitri and Presley's relationship make it through the drama at Club Sin?

The first scenes were especially hot and steamy. Unfortunately it went downhill from there. The conflict/resolution happened very early compared to most reads with what seemed to be a rush to the finish. I felt no connection to the characters after that first scene. (*This is why I am hoping a read of the others in the series will provide that connection.*) I like the style of writing and of the series.

This is the final book in the series, and is a short novel rounding out the story of Dmitri and Presley. It has a hesitant start, as the loyal reader would question the behaviour of both leads – but as the story unfolds, mainly over just a few short days, it makes more sense. The gang all come together for a big event and the epilogue serves to reassure the skeptical reader.
