Perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, the Club Sin series continues with Freed, a wicked, wild novel from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive, he desires only to give her everything she craves.
For fans of the Club Sin series you'll enjoy getting to read about Mary's story. You first met her in Claimed, book 1 of the Club Sin series, so you already have a bit of a background on her. She is a doctor, former submissive to her late husband Charles (who taught Dmitri everything he knows), and is lonely.
It has been a long time since Mary has indulge in the lifestyle, she sort of lost that side of her when Charles passed away to cancer, but it was nice to see Elliot fight for her and break down those walls. Though I enjoyed the flashbacks, there were times when it was distracting-- not only for me, but obviously for Mary's character. I understood her heartbreak, but there were times when I just wanted to shake her and tell her to focus on the present.
Written Revelry gives Freed 3 out of 5.
If you're a fan of the Club Sin Series you'll definitely want to read Mary's HEA. For you newbies, just be aware that despite the book cover, this is a mature couple, not those 20-30 year old you're used to reading. It's nice to see they still got it. And though this wasn't my favorite of the series, go read the others (Claimed, Bared, and Desired).

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 has always broken rules and she continues to feed off emotion—always staying true to her heart. Those traits are now the bones of her stories. 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 Sons of Anarchy.
