From the ruins of an abandoned church comes Baltimore’s hottest and most exclusive BDSM club. Twelve Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy...
He thinks he caused her pain, but she knows he’s the only one who can heal her…
Kenna Sloane lost her career and her arm in the Marines, and now she feels like she’s losing herself. Submission is the only thing that ever freed her from pain and made her feel secure, and Kenna needs to serve again. Bad. The only problem is the Dom she wants once refused her submission and broke her heart, but, scarred on the inside and out, she’s not looking for love this time. She’s not even sure she’s capable.
Griffin Hudson is haunted by the mistakes that cost him the only woman he ever loved. Now she’s back at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, and more beautiful than ever, and she’s asking for his help with the pain he knows he caused. Even though he’s scared to hurt her again, he can’t refuse her, because he’d give anything to earn a second chance. And this time, he’ll hold on forever.

I must admit that I am impressed by how wonderfully Laura Kaye wrote Kenna and Griffin and also the past relationship between the two, the aftermath, and the demons that they struggle with in the present. And the whole BDSM. I am always nervous about reading these books because sometimes it seems more about how crazy the scene can get instead of drive to serve and please that a sub/Dom are supposed to have with each other. But Kaye did a wonderful job writing the scenes of Kenna and Griffin together as well as pulling in their romantic interest of each other.
Kenna was a badass former Marine who seeks out a membership to Blasphemy again in hopes to see Griffin but also so that she can clear her mind of the guilt that she holds. Her struggles after coming home from serving were realistic and well written. Griffin’s guilt of letting Kenna go five years ago and his determination to keep her now made him oh, so sexy. Well, everything made Griffin sexy.
I look forward to reading the other master’s stories in this series. This is the second book in the series and Kaye has done a wonderful job thus far.
