Release date:  September 2, 2013

 blurb 2
While the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.
Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.
If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…
The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.
Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.
Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal with some dirty business.
Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.crystal spears 2
 excerpt 2
  It’s been two fuckin weeks since Mira stopped by the damn clubhouse wanting to talk to my daughter. What gives her the fucking right? She left me to raise a child at the age of thirteen, and eighteen years later, she thinks she can magically return into Tatiana’s life? Yeah, that’s right; I’m a thirty-one year old man with an eighteen-year-old daughter. Judge me bitches. I don’t give a shit. I admit I’m sitting at Club Sated and getting wasted off my ass over this shit. Why am I here, and not at Breakneck? Well, there’s plenty of naked pussy around, and when any man is upset and feeling down, he wants to be around pussy. Don’t let any of them lie to you. But there’s this one bitch here that I want and for the first time in my life, a bitch doesn’t want me back. I don’t see what the big deal is. I just wanna take her home and fuck the shit outta her. Hell, we don’t even have to leave the club. I can fuck her right here. I’m sure Winter and Braxxon wouldn’t give a shit, but then again, they just might because the bitch my cock is aching for is their manager Storm. And shit do I wanna ride that Storm.
  Storm is just another piece of ass, but for some reason, something about this woman fascinates me. She’s a fucking young buck too. She’s Winter’s age, only twenty two. That’s literally only four years older than my own daughter is. You would think that alone would detour my cock, but it doesn’t.

review by sue 2

I will have to admit I did not read the first one of the series but started with Withstanding Me. However, now that I have read this I will be sure to go back and read the other in the series. This story follows ZZ and Storm, but also lets you follow the story of the first book in the series about Winter and Braxxon. The book is about Storm who has loved ZZ since the first time she met him and he saved her from a problem in her life. Lets just say that Storm has been through a lot to make her the person she still has that hope of love, which is amazing. They are so different and while she believes in love he does not think that he can love anyone, but that is to be seen. A good book should not always have a perfect life because lets face it if you did the book would be boring. Crystal Spears has taken this to heart and has added some tragedy that they have to try to overcome. Will they overcome or will it be too much for them to bear? I have read the story and there are some twists in there that you will want to find out.

The author has also opened up for another book by bringing in other characters and to me the flow was perfect because it was not just a dead stop but as I said flowed continuously. There were no spots that I felt were a bit uneven or broken, she gave enough descriptions to actually make you understand what your reading even if you haven’t read Seize me. I have read Talania from the author and both this book and the other one she has shown how much talent she has when writing.

So who doesn’t love a hot looking man on the covers of books! I will definitely be checking in on this author to see what else she has up her sleeve to publish in the future!

Two years ago everything changed for the remaining members of the Seattle rock band Tempest.
Two years is a long time.

In trouble with nowhere else to go songstress Lace Lowell seeks refuge with the band during their stop in New York City.

Two guys, one woman, and a host of dark secrets all together within the tight confines of a tour bus as the group travels cross country.

Will friendships prevail?
Or will the three of them succumb to seductive impulses too addictive to resist?

In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Stacey Kennedy returns to Club Sin with another wicked and wild tale of submission, seduction, and love.
At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant façade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him.
Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and surrender. He refuses to allow her to submit to any other man—nor does she want to. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing. For as they give in to passion, they must lay bare their souls for a love that could heal—and free—them both.
Bared is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences. 
Praise for Stacey Kennedy’s Claimed
“Claimed sucked me in! Stacey Kennedy weaves together the intense BDSM lifestyle with the soft touch of a sweeter, more traditional love story in a novel with an engaging heroine at its heart.”—J. Kenner, New York Times bestselling author of Release Me
“Deliciously sexy, Claimed will captivate you at once, leading you on an erotic journey that you won’t want to end. A fabulous talent, Kennedy shines in this fast-paced and exciting novel.”—New York Times bestselling author Cheyenne McCray
“Tender, emotional—and smoking hot!”—Savanna Fox, author of the Dirty Girls Book Club series



Stacey Kennedy is an urban fantasy lover at heart, but she also enjoys losing herself in dark and sensual worlds. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who gave her a happily-ever-after. Together, they have two small children who can always make her smile, and who will never be allowed to read Mommy’s books. If she’s not plugging away at a new story, you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy and Game of Thrones.

“Claimed sucked me in! Stacey Kennedy weaves together the intense BDSM lifestyle with the soft touch of a sweeter, more traditional love story in a novel with an engaging heroine at its heart.”—J. Kenner, New York Times bestselling author of Release Me
A novel of erotic discovery and forbidden desire that goes beyond Fifty Shades of Grey.
Presley Flynn is ripe to experience her secret fantasies . . . and Dmitri Pratt wants nothing more than to fulfill them. Once inside the elite Club Sin in Las Vegas, Presley is nervous but excited—and determined to surrender to her every desire. Dmitri is her Master, and his touch is like fire. With each careful, calculated caress, he unleashes her wildest inhibitions, giving her unimagined pleasure.
Presley is different than the other submissives Dmitri has mastered. The BDSM lifestyle is new to her, and so are the games they play at Club Sin. From the start, Presley stirs emotions in Dmitri far beyond the raw purity between a dom and the perfect sub. For the ecstasy they share goes beyond the dungeon, igniting a passion that claims the very depths of the heart.
Claimed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.


This was a really great book! I absolutely enjoyed it.  Very well written. This is my first Stacey Kennedy book, and she has definitely made a new fan. It is an Erotic BDSM book and has a lot of that in it but it also had a fantastic story line. Which I love because it wasn’t just a book about having sex. There are a lot of page scorching scenes and a Dungeon too!
Presley is a girl trying to find herself again. She had recently went through a bad breakup with her high school sweetheart. She even moved states to be with him and he cheated on her. She has always been into reading erotic romance and little did she know her best friend was living that life style. She introduces her into this exotic world she has always been curious about. Also to the most dangerously, sexy, confident man she has ever laid eyes on.
 Dmitri is a powerful, influential man. CEO of a casino in Vegas. Many do not know he has a secret life. He is a Dom. He is the owner of an erotic sex club called Club Sin. When he first meets Presley he knows that she is different. She may be new and unfamiliar with his lifestyle but she is a quick learner. She is stirring a longing for more he never thought he could find and he can’t resist. 
I can’t wait to read more of this Series!

I received an ARC from net galley in exchange for an honest review.
