Oh I just fell in love as this series gets better and better. I was really surprised that I loved this second instalment even more than Crave as Kennedy hadn’t made a huge impression on me in book one. But he was absolutely lush and his and Zee’s story was not only sexy and passionate; it was quite humorous too.
“I keep trying to tell you I don’t snuggle.” – Zee
“This is me ignoring you.” – Kennedy
The tone in Claim definitely wasn’t as sombre as Crave rather it was more of a fun sexy read and it was HOT. Whilst I’ve loved both, this one definitely has the edge because of that. Now I’m even more excited for the next one….and Julien!
Kennedy is a playboy according to everyone not in his circle. His family want him married and settled with a posh bird but he hasn’t got any such plans; Kennedy doesn’t do serious or even the so-called posh birds! Then this all changes when Mackenzie turns up in the club one night at a special BDSM party; divorced and looking for one night stands only as a result. All it takes is one scene and both Kennedy and Zee realise they have a connection they can’t deny nor ignore. Try as Zee might she falls not only to her knees but reluctantly her heart falls too. I can’t blame her; Kennedy is pretty much Dom perfection! Oh and he does NOT give up on something or someone he wants. And Kennedy wants Zee. He realises that this is a one of a kind connection. It takes Zee a bit longer though, sadly.
‘Emotionally, she recognized that she should run. Yet she was helpless to do anything other than succumb.’
I thought Mackenzie was a brilliant heroine. She’s a tough, intelligent and sassy woman who’s comfortable with who she is whilst trying to safeguard her heart. I’ve come to the conclusion that Sierra sure knows how to write the type of heroines I love. There’s no unnecessary dramatics and back and forth. Her heroine was believable and her issues understandable.
‘She wasn’t just addicted to his delicious dominance. She was addicted to him.’
Kennedy is one gorgeous, intelligent, caring and passionate man. He has a serious side sure, but the balance between that and the quirkiness that has him in funky coloured trainers makes him absolutely knickers melting perfect. He has that brilliant dry and sarcastic humour I absolutely love.
“I’d be better if you left me alone.” – Zee
“Would you?” – Kennedy
“You seem unconcerned.” – Zee
“Supremely.” – Kennedy
The way he loves, his perseverance and his attention to detail is just yummy-liscious….and the way he claims. Yeah; I fell in lust, love and onto my knees!
