Freed (Club Sin #4)
By Stacey Kennedy
Releasing November 4th
About the Book:
Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband,
Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and
submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply
she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who
exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.
Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been
waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock
the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When
Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex.
Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive,
he desires only to give her everything she craves.

Stacey Kennedy delivers another awesome book in her Club Sin series. I really enjoyed getting to read Mary's story. Freed does not take place in Club Sin, but I really liked the change. What was even better about this book was that the couple was older than the other characters in this series.
We got to meet Mary briefly in Claimed; which is book 1 in the series. I am glad she got her own story. Stacey Kennedy always brings the reader a story along with the kink. Mary hasn't done a scene with anyone since her husband and Dom died.
In this book she is finding her way back into the BDSM world, but she is remembering her dom. Elliott really likes Mary, but she is not giving her entire shelf to him. What really made this book so good is the connection between Mary and Elliott.
I loved watching Mary take the journey of submitting her whole self to Elliott. I really thought that it was an awesome touch to the book to see a little of the life that Mary had with her husband Charles.
This book was really good. As usual I am itching for the next book in the series. I know it is going to be just as good as this one, if not better. I think this book would be perfect for those of you that are new to the BDSM world. If you are looking for a awesome story with some lite BDSM, than this is the book for you. Definitely give it a read.

In that one second, her actions told him: I turned to Dmitri to ask because I’m not following your
order. I’m getting my friends a drink.
Little did she know Elliott loved a challenge. In his life, he conquered businessmen who were
known to make grown men cry. He’d gotten investors to dive into risky businesses. He loved those stone walls in life that needed to be broken down to succeed.
Mary had unknowingly become his next conquest.
She turned to him with her chin lifted high. “Are you ready to serve the drinks?”
His frown pulled at the corners of his mouth as he took the final step to close the distance. He
leaned down by her face, and the sweetness of her flowering scent spiraled around him. “I do believe I already said that I wanted you to help me get the drinks.” He arched a brow at her. “Did you not hear me?”
“I heard you.” She hesitated. “I—”
“Good,” he interjected with an easy smile. “For a moment there I thought you had a problem with
She laughed softly, avoiding his gaze. “No, my hearing is just fine.”
He noted the flush of her cheeks returned as he leaned away. “Then please come with me so we
can enjoy some drinks.” A power play with him she would lose, of that he was confident. And he rather enjoyed hearing her following behind him as he entered the kitchen.
Nice try, though, he mused to himself.
He reached the kitchen island and removed three glasses from the side cabinet as Mary went to
the fridge and pulled out the bottle of chardonnay. Once she moved to his side, he sensed her become still, almost frozen in time. He took the bottle from her and she stared at him with dazzling eyes, burning with a light he’d not seen in some time—fierce attraction.
He uncorked the bottle and asked, “Are you a member of Club Sin, Mary?”
She shook her head. “No, I prefer not to play with young men.”
He smiled, filling up the first glass. “You are clearly a submissive, so do you play elsewhere,
“No.” She peeked at him before she pushed the second glass closer to him. “I’m no longer in the
Surprise flickered through him, and he hurried to finish filling the second and third glasses. He
placed the bottle down and turned to her. She stared at the wine bottle, not moving, barely breathing, it seemed.
Unable to stop himself, pulled by the attraction, he trailed a finger over her bare shoulder and
her gaze snapped to him. He waited for her to lash out at him, but her mouth stayed shut. She wasn’t even blinking.
He lowered his gaze and watched his finger running up and down her arm, and murmured, “Now,
why would a submissive who reacts as beautifully as you do not play anymore?”
“I”—she inhaled sharply and moved away from his touch—“it’s not something that interests me
“Funny,” he retorted. “Your body seems to disagree with that statement.”
Stacey Kennedy is the USA Today bestselling author of the Club Sin series. Growingup, Stacey’s mind wandered the path less traveled, and that path most often led to love.

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.
