Blog tour, giveaway & 5* review - My Obsession by Cassie Ryan

My Obsession

Club Desire # 1

By: Cassie Ryan
Releasing July 21, 2015

In this story of temptation and total surrender for readers of Sylvia Day and J. Kenner, a powerful master gives his dream girl a new beginning in the dungeons of decadent ecstasy.

Running from a troubled past, Sandra Barry spent years hiding out in New York City’s BDSM scene, finding satisfaction and even a sense of community as a sub at a large dungeon. But when a stalker joins the dungeon posing as a Dom, he crosses her personal boundaries, giving her no choice but to return home to Arizona. Seeking refuge once again in the kink lifestyle, Sandra meets a sexy new Dom whose tutelage drives her wild—although there’s something familiar about him she just can’t place.

As a teenager, Brent Weston was a nerd. Now he owns the hottest dungeon in Phoenix, enjoying the power and success he’s always craved. All that’s missing is the right woman to share it with. Then one day Sandra, his secret high school crush, walks into his club. She’s just as beautiful as he remembers. She’s also scared as hell. Brent has been waiting for this moment, and now that Sandra’s in his sights, he’ll do anything to protect her, pleasure her—and prove that he’s the only master worthy of her devotion.

My Obsession is the first book in Cassie Ryan's Club Desire series, and she's kicked the series off with a real bang.  This book can be read as a standalone and there is no cliffhanger - yay! Cassie Ryan is a new author to me but if all of her books are as good as this one then I can see her making my list of favourite BDSM romance authors.  The writing is strong, the story is nicely paced and flows well, and the characters are easy to connect with.  

Sandra arrives in her hometown in Arizona after running from New York and her abusive Dom, Diego.  She visits Club Desire in the hope of getting a membership to the elite BDSM club. The club is owned by Brent and he instantly recognises Sandra as the popular girl he had a crush on in high school.  Brent has changed a lot from the nerd he was in school, so Sandra doesn't recognise him even though she thinks he looks vaguely familiar. Brent helps Sandra learn about the lifestyle and learn to trust again - he also learns that Sandra is the perfect submissive for him. But Diego is stalking Sandra and she is in danger - can Brent protect her?

I absolutely loved Brent - he is a great Dom, he was so patient with Sandra and he was really caring and protective towards her. He is also as hot as hell! Sandra was a great mix of strength and vulnerability. She had been through a traumatic experience but she was still strong enough to venture into the lifestyle again. This pair were great together - the sex was really hot but more importantly it felt like they truly belonged together and completed each other.  The stalking storyline was exciting to read as well - and Diego was super creepy! I'm looking forward to reading more from this author, and I'm hoping that dishy Dex's story is the next book in this series. Five stars!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
