MY OPINION OF CLAIMED
Can a man redeem himself after submitting a captive woman to degradation and forced pleasure? That's the question that Claimed answers in full force. This is the second part that follows the story of Kayne and Ellie one year after some intense and illicit events that bonded them forever.
She cannot come to terms with all the dominance, lies and acts he forced upon her, but she still misses the man who changed her, chained her, and made her writhe in the throes of passion. I like the fact that Kayne is really suffering the effects of losing the woman he came to love while subjecting her to his whims. Of course, he had his reasons which he desperately tries to explain to Ellie. While she's under the erotic spell he still has over her, I liked that she fights her conditioning to respond to his commanding presence.
Even though they shared a staggeringly deep intimacy while they were Dom and slave, now they are really getting to know each other. I was as surprised as Ellie at how open with his feelings Kayne is, but she has doubts. She's afraid of how different he is now. Could this gentle side of his be trusted? What about his real job? Will it be a threat to their future?
Most of the time, I was thoroughly entertained by the dynamics of the characters, the steamy scenes aplenty and the dangers that lurk from Kayne's past.
Speaking of steamy scenes. Get buckets of cold water near you. Dray throat and pumping heart will be on the menu every five minutes. You're welcome. And you can't imagine how unbelievably hot things become when they both let go of their insecurities and plunge headfirst into a consuming level of passion. Hot warning: there is a certain scene with a strawberry that you just have to read!
Lustfest, jealousy, paradise islands, all converge with secrets from Kayne's past and a heart-pounding ending loaded with revenge and adrenaline. No room for boredom with this story. It will claim you right from the start.
People often rebel against the things that make them vulnerable, while at the same time tempting them like sin.
You're the one person who can destroy me. You're my sin and my absolution, my indulgence and my starvation, and every right to all my wrongs.

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.
