Release blitz, giveaway & 5* review - Dangerous Desire by Sebastian Ex

Title: Dangerous Desire
Series: The Onyx Club #2
Author: Sebastian Ex
Release Date: July 8, 2015

My name is Brandon Edwards. Men like me don’t come along often. I’m a gentleman, a lover, a protector, and a Dominant. I’ve never been the type who can – or even wants to – commit to a woman…until I met Penny a couple of years ago. Since then, we've been in a committed relationship. I adore and cherish her.
Penny has a darkness inside her, a yearning for extreme pain. But I don’t want that for her, nor can I give her what she’s so desperate for. Her craving has led her down risky paths, and it’s my job to keep her off those now.
There’s a dangerous desire lurking within all of us. But when does wanting more become too much?

“More,” she begs as I bring the cane down on her already red ass. 
I drop the long thin piece of bamboo, it makes a sound as it hits the concrete of my playroom. “I didn’t give you permission to speak, Petal,” I say to Penny. My voice is low, angry though controlled.
“Please, Sir. Harder,” she begs.
Her body is filled with marks. Her alabaster skin is no longer white. It’s a perfect hue of flaming crimson. Welts have developed from every one of the toys I’ve used on her. I’ve spanked her, flogged her, paddled her and caned her. And with everything I’ve done she wants more.
I’ve noticed since Matthew and Ella’s wedding, Penny’s upped the ante with her pain tolerance. She’s begging for more, desperate to have pain in her life at every opportunity.
She’s tried to top me many times, just like she is now. 
“Did I give you permission to talk?” I ask again.
I stand behind her, her legs open, her pussy on show to me along with her glorious ass. Her blonde hair is falling out of the ponytail she had it in, and the strands are a stark contrast against the rich brown of the leather from the spanking bench. She’s up on her knees, her wrists are secured to the front legs of the bench.
“So-sorry, Master,” she stutters.
I fucking hate it. She’s called me Master a few times and I know she wants that from me, but I don’t want a slave. I want a submissive. 
Standing back, my eyes travel the length of her body. From her upper back all the way to her ankles- she’s marked. The heavier lashings are around her upper thighs and butt. Her mid-section only has slight color, because hitting with a heavy hand around the kidneys is not pleasurable. It’s flat out pain.
Penny’s been wanting more pain and I’m not ready to take her there. Nor should she want to travel into such dangerous territory.


Dangerous Desire is a fantastic follow up to Sebastian Ex's debut novel, Filthy Desire. I enjoyed this book even more than the first - it's an intensely satisfying love story with a difference.  It can be read as a standalone alone, but I'd recommend reading Filthy Desire for Matthew and Ella's story first so you know the background of the Onyx Club and it's owners.  This story stars Matthew's business partner Brandon and his lovely submissive Penny. Recently Penny has started craving extreme amounts of pain, and when Brandon realises that he's unable to give this to her she leaves him.  Sadly Penny's dark desires lead her into danger.  Can Brandon and Penny make their relationship work? And most importantly can Brandon keep Penny safe?

This is a captivating story that had me completely hooked. Brandon's love for Penny shone from the pages, and the anguish he felt was just heart wrenching.  It was impossible not to feel for Penny, the situation she found herself in was just awful.  Brandon was a tower of strength for Penny, he was absolutely amazing, I completely fell in love with him.  This was such an emotional story, full of love and angst.  But the emotional, angst filled moments were brilliantly balanced out by the witty, humorous banter between Brandon, Matthew and their friend and fellow Dom, Nathan.  They were so funny together, but they were also like three extremely sexy, dominant angels.  Their hearts are huge, and they will do anything to help those they love. The way Brandon helped Daisy and her son, was just so sweet.  Daisy is a great addition to the cast, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her.

Sebastian Ex has really impressed me with this series. His stories are sexy, gritty and emotional yet also funny and heartwarming.  I'll definitely be looking out for more from this great new author. Five stars!

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