Real estate mogul Micah Holt exerts absolute control over all aspects of his life. As a founding member of the Dominants Council that oversees San Francisco’s sex club scene, he keeps his dark side hidden away from the press, who will chase down any hint of scandal. He’s always in command of his world, careful to expose his closely guarded secrets only to those he knows he can trust. Then Allie Bennett shakes his legendary discipline. She’s beautiful, pure, untainted. But is Micah willing to sacrifice her innocence for his own selfish obsessions?

When that sexy smile makes her body burn, Allie tries with all her might to ignore it. For one thing, Micah’s her new boss. For another, he’s as complicated as he is devastatingly handsome. Still, Allie can only fight so much before she gives in to his dangerous games. She knows he’s got dark secrets. But when she discovers the true depth of his pain, Allie must decide how far she’s willing to go to light the way for love.

Miranda’s Review

Bound Beneath His Pain the the first book in the new BDSM series, Dirty Little Secrets by Stacey Kennedy. I loved the Club Sin novels and after the author introduced the new characters in the final Club Sin book, I was excited to see what she’d come up with next.

The book is pretty good. I liked the characters, but at times I feel like Micah made a huge deal out of things that weren’t as big as he thought. His issues with thinking he was bad because of his proclivities got to be a bit tedious. Especially when Allie showed signs that she enjoyed some dominance in the bedroom…just talk to her!! He frustrated me to no end.

Allie carried the story for me. She is the character I connected to the most and rooted for. She’s sweet and loving. Forgiving even when she shouldn’t be. The chemistry between her and Micah was combustable and I liked who he became when he was around her. He showed a much softer side for sure.

I wasn’t completely blown away with this book, but the series has potential and I look forward to see what comes next for these dominants.

About Stacey Kennedy

STACEY KENNEDY is the USA Today bestselling author of the CLUB SIN series. Growing up, 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 Outlander.
