(46 customer reviews)

Unlucky in love and gun-shy after the epic failure that was her marriage, Lexie Berry is looking for nothing more than a girl’s night out as she joins her friends for drinks and good music at Club Decadence. She didn’t plan on sexy Master Jonas capturing her eye and sparking more than her interest. He’s a Dom though and she hasn’t had sex in six years, not since her husband had violently attacked her in a drunken rage. But he’s an expert at rope bondage, her guilty fantasy that she’s keep secret for years. In fact, he teaches classes in Shibari at his new MMA studio. Can she move beyond her past and be brave enough to explore with Jonas. Can he be the one to unbind her constricted and bruised heart.

Jonas Mitchell: Rossi agent, ex-Green Beret and karate grand master, is looking for a submissive. Tired of the revolving door of subs at The Club, he’d like to settle into a long-term relationship and find happiness like many of his friends. Lexie seems perfect for him, she’s tall, beautiful, experienced in some of the softer, more sensual martial arts and best of all, she is submissive. He can tell, but she hasn’t realized it yet, never exploring that side of her personality. Lexie, he finds she knows more and has more of an interest than she lets on. He decides to take her under his wing, introduce her to BDSM and Shibari, as they explore a D/s relationship.

As Jonas and Lexie grow closer, the Mendoza cartel infiltrates southwest Texas despite the efforts of the Rossi group and the joint taskforce. It once again hits too close to home in a near fatal shoot with the Mendoza kingpin himself at the clinic where Lexie works. In the midst of this violence, the blackmail threats continue in an attempt to close Club Decadence down, for good. Catch up with old friends in this latest edition to the Club Decadence series, as fast paced, intriguing, and full of BDSM adventures as the others in the series.

Sample Chapter

The clicking of high heels echoed in the empty corridor as Joanna Davis moved purposefully toward the administrative offices of Bellmere Academy.? Arriving at a stout oak door with a gold and black etched plaque bearing the name of Howard Pritchett, Headmaster, she smirked at the pretentiousness of the whole place. Smoothing down her skirt, she opened the door?unintimidated?and entered without knocking. The young woman who had the misfortune of being seated at the reception desk at that moment looked up in surprise.?

“I am here to collect Alexis Berry,” Joanna announced coolly.? “Here is a copy of my guardianship order.? Please call her immediately. I am double-parked.”

Dressed to impress in a red power suit, she folded her arms over her chest and gave the receptionist a perfect imitation of her husband’s imperious stare, silently declaring her expectation of instant compliance.? Joanna watched as the woman scanned the official-looking document, flipping to the second page that contained both a judge’s signature and an embossed state seal.? Duly impressed, the receptionist jumped to her feet, mumbling, “Yes, ma’am.? I’ll just check her schedule.”

When she rushed from the room, Joanna smiled, pleased with herself.? The years of being on the receiving end of Peter Davis’ foreboding stares had paid off.? He’d be so amused.? She sobered as her thoughts turned to Lexie and the frantic phone call she’d received the day before.? Miserable and in tears, she had pleaded with Joanna to rescue her.? Her stories of mean girls bullying her had been heartbreaking.?

Lexie had been through a lifetime of drama in her brief fifteen years, starting with her parents’ tragic death when she was five.? Afterward, she’d been sent to stay with her only living relative, Janice Berry. ?Unfortunately, her father’s sister was nothing but a self-absorbed, greedy bitch.? The first time Joanna had met the woman, she had been rude and abrupt.? Other than her trust fund, she obviously had no interest in Lexie, caring only about what her niece could bring to her struggling gym’s bottom line.? Her obsessive delusions of grandeur had her dreaming and scheming in hopes that someday one of her gymnasts would be her claim to fame.? Who would have thought her first Olympic hopeful would be none other than sweet little Lexie.? Graceful and agile, she was quickly molded into a budding junior star.

Winning a string of competitions, Lexie began collecting quite a bit of hardware early on, and Janice saw gold in her future.? Of course, fate did not favor young Lexie and her promising career came crashing down when she morphed into a 5’10” beauty with killer curves practically over night. By the age of fourteen, she had a perfect body for modeling, but it wasn’t the least bit conducive for gymnastics.? Lexie struggled to adapt, except her center of gravity had shifted with her added height, new boobs and curvy hips, and she lost the edge over her petite, more streamlined rivals.? Her less attractive cousins who had always been petty and jealous became outright nasty, and her aunt?now that she couldn’t ride Lexie’s coattails to the national stage?lost interest.? Joanna shook her head angrily; that indifference was the reason why Lexie had ended up at Bellmere Academy in freakin’ New Jersey in the first place.?

The door behind Joanna opened as the receptionist returned with a stuffy-looking old man in a three-piece suit?the headmaster, she surmised.? They were followed by what Joanna could only describe as a Smurf.? Open-mouthed, she stared at her fifteen-year-old niece’s formerly golden brown hair that was now bright blue.? In addition, the skin on her face, neck and chest was a lighter tint of grayish blue with a hint of red from the obviously unsuccessful attempts to scrub off the dye.?

“What happened?” Joanna demanded.

“Blue dye packs in her shampoo.? Just a schoolgirl prank, Ms.??”

“A prank?? The girl is blue, for heaven’s sake.”? Joanna put her hands on her hips and turned her best Peter-esque glare on the portly man.? “You are Mr. Pritchett, I assume.? How have the culprits been punished?”

“We haven’t been able to identify them yet.”? He extended his hand. “I don’t believe we’ve met, you are?”

Her glare turned to rage, and her maternal instincts revved into high gear.? She didn’t need to channel Peter’s dominance any longer, but she did plan to invoke his name.? “I understand you are dependent upon your generous benefactor’s donations and grant money to keep your doors open.”? She took a step closer, and although Joanna was shorter and smaller than the headmaster, he took a step backward.? “I took a look at your contributors.? I’m sure Senators Burnside and Lowell will be happy to meet with my husband about his concerns over the lack of supervision here at your school.? Their constituents will certainly be appalled when this gets out.”

“Certainly that won’t be necessary, Mrs.??”

“Joanna Davis.? I am taking my niece home, but you can expect a call from my husband, Colonel Peter Davis, tomorrow.? The colonel will be following up to ensure that you have exhausted every effort to find the miscreants who assaulted our niece.? I’m sure you know, Colonel Davis is very well connected in the political community and can bend ears, twist arms, and frankly, bust balls if necessary.? So, Mr. Pritchett, I suggest you have some answers for him when he calls.”

Joanna stared at the portly man, her gaze unwavering until she saw the red heat of concern creep up his neck and cover his round face.? She didn’t look away until he squirmed.? Having sufficiently intimidated the man, she turned and collected Lexie who stood with blue lips wide open in a gape-mouthed stare watching the scene unfold with fascination.? “Let’s go, sweetheart.”?

As they walked down the brick steps of the academy, heading for Joanna’s silver BMW, Lexie broke out of her stunned silence.? “Is Uncle Peter really going to bust Mr. Pritchett’s, uh? you know, his balls?”

“Damn straight, sweetheart, but first I’m going to have to fill him in on all the gory details.”

Lexie’s jaw again dropped open in awe of her aunt. “So you were bluffing?”

“Yes, sweetie, but once he takes a look at your blue face and hair, he will be fit to be tied.? That man will be lucky if his campus isn’t overrun by Green Berets by the close of business tomorrow.”? Joanna smiled at her reassuringly; inside she hoped her dominant husband wouldn’t be too angry at her throwing his name around repeatedly, and those of his powerful friends.? Although her bottom tingled in anticipation of potentially negative consequences, she decided that the end justified the means in this case.? Peter was usually reasonable.? Besides, she was not about to leave poor Lexie to the mercy of those wealthy teenaged mean girls for another minute.?

“Won’t he be angry?”

“Pshaw!”? Glancing at Lexie’s face, she saw it was tense with anxiety.? “Oh sweetie, Uncle Peter can be a very intimidating man, but he’s always been kind and friendly toward you, hasn’t he?”

“Yes, but I don’t want him mad at you because of me.”

“Nonsense, inside that tough military exterior is a teddy bear.? I’ve been married to Uncle Peter for twenty years; you just leave him to me.”?

“If you’re sure.? I just can’t believe you dared do anything in his name before checking with him first.”

Out of the mouths of babes, Joanna thought.? Lexie must be psychic because Peter had said the same thing to her many times in the past two decades.? Except this time, there hadn’t been time, or so she would make him believe.?

“How did you get guardianship papers?? The headmaster’s secretary showed them to me.”

When they arrived at the car, Joanna paused before unlocking it.? She looked up at Lexie, who dwarfed her, even with Joanna in heels.? “I know a few big guns myself.”?

Cupping her face, she gently brushed the hair out of her niece’s eyes, speaking earnestly.? “Your mother was like a sister to me.? She made Peter and I your godparents for a reason, sweetie.? She trusted us.? After we talked last, and you told me about how your aunt has been treating you all these years, I contacted my attorney and he drew up the papers.? So when you called me all upset, I thought, enough of this nonsense?no time like the present.? I couldn’t leave you to her cold, unfeeling guardianship anymore.? I just wish you’d have said something earlier, Lex.”

“It wasn’t so bad until I couldn’t compete anymore.”

“Not so bad is still not good enough.? There is no excuse.”? Pulling her into a tight hug, she whispered, “I’m so sorry, sweetie.”

After a minute, Joanna answered her question.? “On my way here, I swung by Janice’s gym with a notary in tow, got her signature and? Voila!? Here I am, your new guardian.? I hope that’s okay, sweetie.”

“That is so okay, Aunt Joanna,” Lexie said with a wide grin. “I couldn’t love you both more if you were my real aunt and uncle. I’m floored that Aunt Janice would simply sign over custody and lose all hope of ever getting access to my trust fund. In the time I’ve known her, Janice Berry has never done anything without somehow getting something out of it for herself.” She paused, and a frown crossed her pretty face before she asked, “Did you have to pay her off?”

Joanna did her best to conceal her surprise.? Lexie was very intuitive, but this wasn’t sometime a teenage girl should have to worry about. With a beep, Joanna unlocked the door and gave her a kiss on the cheek.

“Get in, honey.? We have a three-hour drive ahead of us.? I thought it’d be nice to stop by a great mall I know outside of Baltimore.? We can buy you some new clothes and have a late lunch before we head home.? How does that sound?”

“How much did you have to pay her?? I know she wouldn’t have given up my monthly allotment without a fight. I’ve lived with her for almost ten years and know for a fact it takes the Jaws of Life to open that woman’s purse.”

Joanna could tell that, for Lexie, the thought of her family only wanting her for financial gain stung.? The poor girl’s self-esteem must have taken quite a beating from her bitch of an aunt.? The woman’s behavior today had been cold and calculating.? She was heartless to treat any young girl in such a manner, but especially her own flesh and blood.? Well, she planned to save her from any other pain at the evil shrew’s hands.?

“Don’t worry, sweetie.? We have an arrangement.”

“Aunt Joanna, what did you do?”

“Well?? That judge I know happens to have a wife who is a former gymnast.? Coincidentally, she is an advisory board member of the USA International Gymnastics Committee and the National Association of Women Gymnastic Judges.”

“Crap!? You threatened to blackball her and her gym.? You blackmailed her!”

“Language, dear,”? Joanna scolded gently, but then ruined it by snickering.? “Yes, sweetie, I blackmailed the crap out of her.? Having Judge Jones’ name on the court order was the icing on the cake.? She folded like a cheap suit after that.”

“You are my hero.”

“Think nothing of it, dear.? Just keep it between you and me.? There’s no need to tell Uncle Peter about my little scheme, okay?? He’s likely to overlook my throwing his name around, but when I start throwing our friends’ names around, he might frown upon that.”?

Her husband would absolutely have a fit if he found out because it was a bluff.? Although she did know Judge Jones and his lovely wife, Nadia, very well, never would she have asked for such favors that would put her ethics and integrity in question.? Of course, Janice didn’t need to know that.?

As predicted, when Peter saw Lexie’s condition, he immediately called in the big guns, and by the time he put in an appearance at Bellmere the following afternoon, three girls had been expelled and the headmaster was seeking employment elsewhere.? A new administrator was in place within the week and the new curriculum included a mandatory class on bullying.??

To Lexie, Joanna and Peter Davis were guardian angels.? They took her into their home and welcomed her as if she were their own daughter.? In fact, their two children were also warmly welcoming, with fifteen-year-old Callie and twelve-year-old Jace becoming like the brother and sister she’d never had. ?She thrived once again in the care of a loving family and began to feel like a normal kid for the first time in a very long time.???

Chapter One

The butterflies in her stomach danced as she took another deep breath, trying to calm her nerves.? Why had she told Elena she would come?? She wanted to see her old friend perform, but at a sex club?? Just as she decided to flee for her sanity, she heard her name called.? Turning, she saw Regan Spencer, another old friend, waving frantically at her from the top of the steps?busted.? Dang!? Now she had to go in or risk never hearing the end of it.?

Lexie had known Regan and her twin sister, Megan, since high school.? Other than an occasional Facebook birthday wish or wall posting about how they had to get together, she’d lost touch with them, until recently.? Both were married now, and to beat it all, their husbands were two of the Dom owners at Club Decadence.? They had been pestering her to come to one of the open sub nights for months.? It was only when Elena had asked that she finally agreed.? Elena had been through some traumatic events lately that had led to the high school best friends reconnecting and spending more time together.? Since Elena was engaged to Dex Russell, the managing owner of The Club, and performed in the lounge, three nights a week, if she wanted some girl time with her friend, this was where she needed to be.

The whole BDSM thing fascinated Lexie while at the same time freaking her out.? Some of it, like the whips and extreme play, scared her spitless, but other things like the rope bondage and even the exhibitionism really got her heart racing.? From what she had seen, the masters at Club Decadence were hot. They bumped her pulse rate up even further.? Her friends’ husbands were tall, handsome and totally ripped, and they said the same was true with most of the Doms at The Club.? This might be Lexie’s only opportunity to explore her secret kinky desires.? She’d read and researched as much as possible, and her fantasies were filled with sexy dominant men.? Maybe it was time to find out what it was all about?for real.

Yeah, right!? She knew if someone came at her tonight with a collar and leash, she would freak.? You came to hear Elena sing, she reminded herself.? Men, relationships, love ? They only brought heartache, she’d learned that first hand.?

Regan had been joined by Elena and they both called to her excitedly in unison.?

“Lexie!? You came!”?

Grinning at their unplanned harmony, they rushed down the steps, each grabbing a hand as they practically dragged her up to the entrance.?

“No turning back now, mwah-ha-ha!”? Regan teased.

“C’mon, Reg, take it easy.? I don’t want her flippin’ out.? It has taken months of prep work just to get her to the front door.? Wait until we get her inside before you torture her.”

Lexie’s eyes flew to Elena, the most sensible of all her friends, but she winked teasingly before her eyes shifted to Regan and they both broke into laughter.

“Never mind our teasing.? If you only want to listen to me and the band perform that’s fine.? No pressure, honey.”? Elena wrapped an arm around Lexie’s waist and hugged her close.? “I’m so glad you’re here.? Did you bring the papers I gave you?”

Fishing around in her bag, she let Elena guide her forward.? As she brought out a bundle of tri-folded papers, she realized she was already in the lobby.? Looking around with wide-eyed fascination, she noticed a scantily clad woman at a reception desk, busily signing people in.? She was surprised at the innocuous d?cor in the entryway and was mildly disappointed.? That was until her eyes fell on Dex, who was leaning against the frame of a door marked “private.”?

Dex wore black leather pants and a charcoal gray dress shirt.? His arms were crossed over his broad chest, and the material of his silky shirt was strained as it tried to contain his bulging biceps.? At his waist, she noticed a pair of lined leather cuffs hooked to his belt, making him look even more intimidating than usual.?

Dex gave Lexie a small nod in greeting, his lips quirking up in a hint of a small smile.? That all changed when his gaze fell on the petite woman standing at her side.? His face lit up and his smile was infused with what Lexie could only describe as pure joy.? Without pause, he raised his hand, an obvious summons to his observant fianc?e.

“There’s Dex.? He needs to see you before you go in.? Come on.”

As they approached, Elena dropped her arm from Lexie and stepped into her man’s arms.? The love they shared was palpable.? She smiled up at him, her hands sliding up over the smooth material of his shirt, coming to rest on his well-muscled chest.? As they kissed, Lexie noticed the huge diamond on her friend’s left hand as it twinkled in the light.?

“You aren’t dressed yet, Chiquita.? We’ll have to hurry both you and Lexie along.? You know how the crowd gets if you don’t start on time.”

“I wanted to greet Lexie and make sure she didn’t turn tail and run before she got in the door.”? As she said this, Elena looked over her shoulder and winked at her.

“Lexie, it’s natural to be nervous on a first visit,” Dex assured her as he opened the door behind him.? Holding out an arm, he guided the two women inside.? “Tonight is very low key.? Like a mixer, if you will.? It’s just a time for fun, conversation, dancing and good music.? It’s also an opportunity for you to meet like-minded people.”

“What if I’m not like-minded?”? She blushed when he raised his perceptive gaze to hers, an eyebrow quirked in challenge.? He saw right through her evasive question.? They both knew that was a whopper.? She’d had a secret interest in D/s for years.? Her Kindle was jam-packed with at least 2500 titles of erotic fiction, most related to bondage and spanking.? She had a few other genres like shifter or vampire romances, but they all featured strong, dominant male characters who took control of their women in one aspect of their lives or another, but always in the bedroom.? Embarrassed at being caught in a fib, she lowered her gaze.

“You wouldn’t have gotten an invitation if I wasn’t certain of your interest, my dear Alexis.”

Not knowing what to say to that, she decided silence was better than opening her mouth and inserting her foot further.? She wasn’t the biggest fan of the taste of shoe leather, after all.?

“Don’t worry, Lex; we’re all kink-friendly here.? Every one of us was a newbie at one time or another.? Believe it or not, even big bad Doms like Master Dex had to start somewhere.? They didn’t come out of the womb wearing leather and carrying single tails, despite rumors to the contrary.”

“In a sassy mood tonight are you, my little subbie?” he asked as he opened his office door, motioning them to enter first.? Dex swatted Elena’s bottom with a resounding thud as she passed.? Although she squealed and scampered away, she couldn’t have felt much through the thick denim skirt she wore.

“I was just teasing, mi amo.”

“As was I, Chiquita, or that skirt would be raised and your bottom blazing by now.”

Lexie looked on as her friends playfully teased one another.? She was delighted that after being estranged for years, they had found each other again.? Lexie was also green with envy over the love her friends shared.? They were nearly inseparable.? Dex, being extremely protective of his tiny fianc?e, rarely let her out of his sight.? That she had been abused and traumatized by the man she had thought was her brother and kidnapped by his cohorts made his possessiveness justifiable.?

At twenty-eight, Lexie had been on scores of disastrous dates and already had one failed marriage under her belt.? She was disillusioned with love and doubted that there was a soul mate out there for her anywhere.? Sadly, for Lexie, starry-eyed, passionate romance didn’t exist outside of the pages of a novel.? Unlike Dex and Elena, love didn’t seem to be in her future.

Lexie felt eyes upon her and turned to find Dex and Elena both staring at her, each with smiles on their faces.? She could feel the sweep of their gazes as they tracked down her front, stopping at her shoes before returning to her face.? Elena giggled.

“What?”?

Looking down at her yellow halter dress, she checked to make sure nothing was hanging out or bulging and that she didn’t have a big glob of toothpaste anywhere.? Her dress came to mid-thigh and the hem was where it was supposed to be, both in front and back.? The deep neckline of her top still covered her large breasts thanks to the double stick tape?a handy trick she’d learned during her short stint of modeling as a teenager.? Finding everything in order, she raised her eyes in question.? “Is something wrong?”

“Didn’t you tell her it was LBD night, Chiquita?

“I thought I did.”? Elena frowned, trying to remember.

“What’s LBD stand for?”? Lexie’s mind flew through her BDSM vocabulary searching for an answer for the acronym.? When they just smiled at her in amusement, she made her best guess.? “Lesbian Bondage and Discipline?”

Laughing, they both shook their heads, and Lexie frowned.? Her eyes fell to Elena’s slave collar and she guessed again.? “Leash your Bitch Day??

They found that hilarious, and Elena fell into Dex as they roared with laughter.

“Lash your Booty Down?? Lick Big Di?uh, no, surely not?I know, Black Lightning Discipline?? No, that would be BLD.? Oh, please, tell me.”

Both Dex and Elena had sobered, staring at her in horror after her last guess.

Dex asked sternly, “How do you know about Black Lightning, Lexie?? I thought you were a newbie.”

“I am, but I’m not completely ignorant.”? She wasn’t about to admit that her research included a thorough investigation of all things related to bondage and discipline. Black Lightning, she had learned, was a nickname for a wicked black fiberglass cane often used for extreme discipline and pain play.?

“Sir, Lex.”?

When Lexie looked at her in question, Elena elaborated, “You need to address Dex and all the other Doms as Sir or Master.? Since you’re in The Club now, you’ve got to follow the rules.”

“I’m sorry.? I forgot.? Please forgive me, Sir Dex.”? Lexie felt strange speaking those words, but oddly satisfied, too.? What did that mean?

“It’s Sir or Master Dex, my dear.? Sir Dex sounds like we’re hosting a Renaissance fair.”? He winked at her and Elena giggled again.? Elena had told her that The Club was like an adult playground.? Although scenes were often very real, the costumes, titles and protocols were used to set the mood and added to all the sexy fun and games.? She did say there were some couples who were heavy into the lifestyle and very intense, but for the most part, The Club was an escape and a chance to play.?

She knew Dex outside The Club; he was always friendly and kind to her as Elena’s friend, but also seemed imposing. After that wink, she was thinking she needed to add teasing and playful.? Maybe Master Dex wasn’t as menacing as he’d like people to believe.? She was proven wrong by his next words, however.??

“Your little lapse is forgiven, Lexie.? A word of warning, though: you won’t find Black Lightning in my club and I don’t want to hear about you using one either.? It can cut and cause severe injury.? Do you understand?”

“Yes, Sir, but I really just read about it online.”

Nodding, he looked relieved as he held out his hand for her paperwork.? “You’re better off taking one of our classes and staying off the internet.”? He perused her medical clearance form and general sub contract; scaled back severely according to Elena since she didn’t have a Dom and wasn’t going to play. It was a basic non-disclosure agreement and outlined the simple rules for the public areas.? This restricted her to the bar and lounge, which was fine with Lexie.?

Dex nodded after looking over each form.? “As an unattached sub and our guest, you are under my protection tonight.? If you feel uncomfortable or afraid, calling out the safewords will bring help.? We use the stop light. Are you familiar with that, Lexie?”

“Yes, Sir.? Red for stop, yellow for slow or with caution, and green means go.”

“Correct.?? I promise you that red will have every available owner and dungeon monitor at your side.? I don’t anticipate you’ll need to use safewords in the bar or lounge, but they are always there for your safety.? Understood?”

“Yes, Sir.”

“Good.? Any questions?”

“Yeah, what’s LBD?”

***

Little Black Dress night had become a regular event ever since the twins had started it in the lounge on Wednesday nights.? It began as a girl’s night out and an opportunity to see Elena perform, but it had quickly morphed into an official club event.? Word spread to other subs, who also started coming dressed to the nines in their best little black dresses.? The Doms had responded in return and were often seen wearing dress shirts or sport coats instead of bare chests or leather vests.?

Tonight was also open sub night, which meant non-members could attend by invitation. The group of friends sat at a table in the front row, but off to the side a bit so they wouldn’t be a distraction to Elena as the liquor flowed freely.? Lexie and the twins were joined by their other guests, their cousins Moon and Angela, as well as Jenny, the pastry chef at Megan’s bakery.? They were sharing a pitcher of strawberry margaritas and singing along with Elena as they enjoyed the mellowing effects of the alcohol.? Lexie, who had laughingly introduced herself as the odd man out due to her shockingly bright yellow dress, opted for a lemon drop martini because of her strawberry allergy.??

The girls had a wonderful time chatting and reminiscing about high school, all under the watchful eyes of The Club owners, including the twins’ husbands Tony “Cap” Rossi and Rick Spencer, as well as Dex, who was never far away when Elena was performing.? Lexie noticed another handsome man?tall, sandy-haired, killer smile?was also watching the room and asked Regan about him.? Regan identified him as Jonas Mitchell, another one of the handsome owners. He was slowly making rounds, chatting with guests and closely monitoring the non-members in the lounge and bar areas.? Regan and the girls informed her that he was single, available and openly looking.? Lexie’s eyes followed the handsome Dom with interest.? She should have been more careful because her friends noticed and instantly went into matchmaking mode, waving Master Jonas over.?

He gave them a chin lift as acknowledgement and began making his way toward their table.? As Jonas Mitchell wound through the large crowd, Regan helpfully filled her in, giving her so many details that Lexie suspected she could write the man’s biography.? Lexie was surprised to hear that she and Jonas shared an interest in martial arts and that he was busy opening a mixed martial arts studio.? He was also looking for a model to help him with a private project.? Regan suggested that with her gymnastics and modeling experience, she’d be perfect for Jonas.? Lexie found that last comment odd and wondered what one had to do with the other.? Then she tried to see a correlation with something BDSM.?

    Maddie Taylor has once again done an outstanding job, with realistic likable characters, great dialogue and a plot that keeps you engaged. I love this series and was so excited to see a new addition. This is a series where it really is best to start with the first book. But that is definitely not a hardship, rather a joy of discovery, meeting the men of Club Decadence and their ladies.

    This story was gifted to me for an honest review.

    I have been following this series since the beginning. I knew it was going to be a winner on the very first book. It had all the necessary and critical elements.
    1. likable characters
    2. great sex
    3. some interesting sex scenes (be it bondage/discipline or impact play)
    4. great background story
    5. more great sex.

    The thing that I really liked about this series is even though each book could be read as a stand alone, they each contribute to the whole series and each new story is just another piece of the larger picture. We reconnect with many of our old favorite characters.

    This time Master Jonas is the centre of attention as he is looking for a new sub and bondage partner. He is introduced to Lexie and they are a perfect fit for one another. Bondage has been one of her fantasies for years and with Jonas’ skill at Shibari she is soon living her dreams.

    The sex between them is frequent and powerful as they explore the world of BDSM together. Their sex scenes are well written and hot as hell. Jonas is a perfect Dom and treats Lexie as if she is the most precious thing to him.

    As with all of Miss Taylor’s stories danger is around the corner and it strikes pretty close to home. It will take a lot of patience on the part of Lexie and Jonas to work through this crises. Maybe this time some answers about who is causing havoc will come to light. I think this is my favourite Decadence story so far. I think I am a sucker for the rope play. I also loved how all the girls in the story rally together and have become such good friends. I look forward to the next chapter in their lives. I would rate this story a 5/5, no doubt about it. If you love to read about a strong dominant man and the pleasure he brings his girl than this is the story for you. If you have never tried Maddie Taylor before than you are in for a big treat.

    I have been following this series since the beginning. I knew it was going to be a winner on the very first book. It had all the necessary and critical elements.
    1. likable characters
    2. great sex
    3. some interesting sex scenes (be it bondage/discipline or impact play)
    4. great background story
    5. more great sex.

    The thing that I really liked about this series is even though each book could be read as a stand alone, they each contribute to the whole series and each new story is just another piece of the larger picture. We reconnect with many of our old favorite characters.

    This time Master Jonas is the centre of attention as he is looking for a new sub and bondage partner. He is introduced to Lexie and they are a perfect fit for one another. Bondage has been one of her fantasies for years and with Jonas?? skill at Shibari she is soon living her dreams.

    The sex between them is frequent and powerful as they explore the world of BDSM together. Their sex scenes are well written and hot as hell. Jonas is a perfect Dom and treats Lexie as if she is the most precious thing to him.

    As with all of Miss Taylor??s stories danger is around the corner and it strikes pretty close to home. It will take a lot of patience on the part of Lexie and Jonas to work through this crises. Maybe this time some answers about who is causing havoc will come to light. I think this is my favourite Decadence story so far. I think I am a sucker for the rope play. I also loved how all the girls in the story rally together and have become such good friends. I look forward to the next chapter in their lives. I would rate this story a 5/5, no doubt about it. If you love to read about a strong dominant man and the pleasure he brings his girl than this is the story for you. If you have never tried Maddie Taylor before than you are in for a big treat.

    Once again Maddie Taylor has written an exceptional book in the Club Decadence series. This is truly one of my favorite book series. In this fourth book Jonas finally meets Lexie, the submissive of his dreams. Their connection is apparent from the moment they meet. The plot is well developed and detailed. Ms. Taylor does a great job entwining previous characters and new character together, adding a new dimension to the story. Like all the other books in the Club Decadence series it’s filled with adventure, danger, love and romance that keeps you drawn into the story. I loved the cliff hanger at the end and eagerly wait for the next book in this series to come out.

    Oh how do I love these Club Decadence books, let me count the ways. To just say I loved this installment of the series is like saying I love my kids. The sentiment gets across but it still feels inadequate. If you can’t all tell at this point how happy I was to read this story and how much enjoyment I got out of it then quite honestly your hopeless and I feel for sorry for you. (Just kidding – maybe.)

    This is Jonas’ book. Yay! Well, really Jonas and Lexies’ book but you get the picture. Lexie, is the goddaughter of Joanna and Pete. They meet at the Club during LBD(little black dress) night and decide to see each other again. What happens next is wonderful, exciting, and keeps you involved from the first word to the last. All the previous characters are here and so is the continuing storyline concerning the Cartel and a host of other problems. This story flows from beginning to end and sets up the next books characters and plot line while keeping you entertained and involved in this book. I really don’t want to give away a lot because I personally hate when reviews get so involved that the storyline is laid out from start to finish ruining the book for the reader. Needless to say, everything and everyone you have previously come to know and root for in these books is still there and the amount of research the author did concerning Jonas as a Shibari Master was phenomenal.

    If you are a returning reader to this series I am positive you’ll love this book. If your a newbie, my suggestion to you is to start at the very beginning cuz it’s a really fine place to start. (Sorry about almost going into song but I truly couldn’t help myself). Please do yourself a favor and read the book. You’ll be happy you did. I received an ARC of this book for an honest opinion of this story.

    This is a great series. The book definitely focuses on integrating Lexie into the BDSM life style. You also get to see what is going on with characters from past books in the series. Not as much spanking in this book as the other 3.

    First of all, let me tell you that I love this series. I loved reading about the twins, Megan and Regan and I loved Elena’s story as well. So, I was more than ready to read the next installment in the series. Alexis was friends with the twins and Elena in high school. They had reconnected after the trauma that the girls had suffered. She is invited to LBD night at the club. While there, she meets Jonas and there is mutual attraction. Jonas is a Shibari master and Lexie is very interested in rope bondage. Jonas asks her to be his submissive/model for the class that he is teaching at his studio. He also wants her to be the model for a picture book he is considering on Shibari. They start slowly in their relationship. Of course, Jonas is a Dom and he is very autocratic about Lexie’s safety. The men at Rossi security are still searching for the man responsible for hurting their submissives. Of course, because Lexie is dating Jonas, she gets caught up in the drama as well. This was a very good book. I loved the length of the story and the care the author takes in explaining and describing the situations. I especially liked the descriptive scenes of their Shibari sessions. If you liked the first 3 books, you are going to love this one!

    Maddie Taylor is a wonderful author. Her books are engaging and have a great story line. I enjoyed Unbind My Heart but it was missing something. It took me a little while to get into the book and once I did it didn’t have enough spanking scenes for me. Jonas and Lexie is a great couple with exciting chemistry between them. While the storyline between Jonas and Lexie is good, what kept me engaged with the book was the overarching storyline that follows the series. The mystery of who is targeting the men of Rossi group. This book left me wanting more of this series and I am looking forward to the next couple’s story.

    Another very well written offering from Maddie in the series. This book has lots of action, adventure and good old kinky to make all you readers happy. Yes she keeps up with all our past couples and does a good job with Jonah \’s story. Great tease at the end to set up the next book. Definitely recommend this one in the series.

    Not as good as the others in the in the series –
    I really liked this series but this one did not grab me as much – I think it was the scene jumping ….one minute your in action danger then you blink and it jumps to rope scene without finishing action …that was off putting

    Awesome mix of danger, action, suspense and intrigue, with romance, steamy sex and HOT bondage scenes. This series is so compelling and the characters so rich, that I can\’t help falling in love with each new Dom. Master Jonas is my new favorite; masculine and strong, he takes charge without crushing Lexie\’s spirit. He introduces her into BDSM and Shibari, slowly and with the utmost care and confidence that she will fly and grow under his strong hand. Lexie is charming but I have to admit I was jealous that she had scooped up Jonas for herself. I want a Master Jonas, please! Now we wait, for the next installment. Please Maddie, don\’t make us wait too long for Sean and Lil Ts stories.

  33. New Shibari Fan!

    I\’ve never seen the draw of Shibari/rope bondage until I met Master Jonas. Now I\’m saying, \”sign me up!\” The sex scenes were hot, but the rope scenes were spectacular with great detail and attention paid to the beauty and the surrender of the sub. Loved it. Also loved how the previous characters were intertwined in the story, I always like to see them again. And the story line with the Cartel and the black mail scheme, with only 2 doms left we are soon to find the culprit. I can\’t wait for book 5.

    What a wonderful series, but each book is so well constructed it will hold up as a stand-alone because enough is shared to keep the reader up to date. Having said that, this series is so good, you will want to read each book in it.
    Club Decadence is a BDSM club owned by a group of former Green Beret men and takes place in Texas and they also run the Rossi agency together. This story revolves mostly around Dom Jonas Mitchell and Physician Assistant Lexie Berry but has their friends from previous stories. Jonas is a Shibari Master and has his own MMA studio. Lexie has had a fascination with rope bondage but has never pursued her interest before. This story is how they meet and eventually Master Jonas and submissive Lexie enter in a loving and committed D/s relationship. The explanations and details of Shibari are well explained giving the reader a good picture of the scene. Besides the Shibari, it covers the BDSM scene, spanking, the sex is explicit and does include anal play. Everything is Safe, Sane and Consensual.

    This was my first encounter with this series and it reads well as a stand alone. The relationship between Master Jonas and Lexie is endearing. Jonas takes such care with Lexie and she just blossoms. The role of submissive vs. slave is so well explained or illustrated. What really has me desperate for the next edition is the story of Mara and Sean. I was devastated when the story ended without letting me know how Mara was. The next story cannot come soon enough for me. This ongoing story is good enough to warrant reading this entire series, as I intend to do.

    I read the first in the series and liked it a lot. The second, not so much. Mainly due to its being a very down/negative story. There was never a light at the end of the tunnel. Because of that, i didn\’t read the third book. This one intrigued me, so i thought i would try again. And yes, this is a darker story than the others on this site, it still had uplifting moments that overrode the drama being played out. While not into shibari, it was very erotic and you couldn\’t help but like the two characters who made it come alive. I also love how the other characters from past books are in the mix as well. Even though i did not read the third installment, everything came right back to where i was before. It does help to know what\’s going on in the series to make your reading more enjoyable. There will be another, which i realized when the epilogue came, this was not over. But, it ended on an okay note; and let\’s face it, Club Decadence cannot fail.
