Review: My Addiction (Club Desire #2) by Cassie Ryan

****4 Stars****

My Addiction is the second book in the Club Desire series and can be read as a standalone (I hadn't realize going in it was part of a series and read it without issue). Dex is an FBI agent that takes on an undercover assignment in LA at a elite BDSM dungeon frequented by Hollywood A-listers because one of the members is suspected of having ties to terrorists. This assignment is perfect for him, since he is a Dom at Club Desire in Phoenix.
When Dex meets Kate, a submissive at the club, the attraction between them is immediate. Kate runs a tech form and one of her clients seems to be involved in terrorism. Dex is convinced she has no idea and sets out to prove her innocence. Things get complicated when Kate's life becomes endangered because of her corrupt father.
This was an interesting book by a new to me author. There was quite a lot happening plot wise. We had the terrorist plot, complications because of Kate's father and also all of the BDSM scenes. The LA club is not very well run and Dex realizes quickly that Kate has little knowledge of how a respectable Dom should be treating his submissive. As Dex teaches Kate how a Dom should respect hard limits and provide aftercare, their connection and attraction deepens. Dex begins to realize Kate may be the submissive he needs in his life and Kate has never felt the things she does kneeling at Dex's feet.
I really enjoyed both Dex and Kate. Dex was a good man and a compassionate Dom. Kate was an independent woman with a backbone who was not afraid to stand up for herself. I also enjoyed their relationship. Feelings developed quickly, but in a believable way. My only issue, and the reason I rated this 4 stars was that several times during the story I felt things became a bit rushed, especially when the story transitioned from LA to Phoenix and at the end of the story. Even with that small quibble, I enjoyed the story very much. It was packed full of well written BDSM and lots of plot twists. I'll be keeping my eye out for future books in this series.

In a novel of erotic passion and deep commitment from the author of My Obsession, an undercover cop finds a soulmate who surrenders to his healing touch.

Fiercely independent and determined to free herself from her father’s manipulation, tech expert Kate Fretwell finds a refuge in L.A.’s elite BDSM dungeon scene as the hot new thing to political and Hollywood A-listers. Still, all that glitters gets old, and Kate soon tires of the stream of well-heeled masters who expect her to be at their beck and call. Then she meets a very different kind of Dom—one whose quiet confidence, strength, and command bring her most willingly to her knees.

Undercover FBI agent Dex Alexander fits right into his assignment to expose terrorist links to one of L.A.’s most popular clubs. The case has reawakened a desire to find the perfect companion, and he knows that beautiful, vulnerable Kate is a woman he could love. But when her father’s corruption unwittingly makes Kate the target of a bigger enemy, Dex brings her to his Phoenix home—and his dungeon, Club Desire. Here she shows him just how eager she is to give him everything . . . and more.
