The USA Today bestselling author of the Club Sin novels kicks off a deeply sensual new series by introducing readers to Micah, a man who takes what he wants—until he meets the one woman he needs.  Real estate mogul Micah Holt exerts absolute control over all aspects of his life. 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.  Bound Beneath His Pain is intended for mature audiences.  Praise for Stacey Kennedy’s Club Sin series Claimed sucked me in!

Review
Bound Beneath His Pain in the first book in a new series by Stacey Kennedy. It’s a spin off of her Club Sin series but that series does not have to be read before this one.
This is the story of Micah and Allie. Each has their own secret and their own secret desires as well. I wasn’t particularly impressed by either of their secrets. There is a big build up for Micah’s secret to be revealed and it was a little disappointing.
The BDSM in this book is very light and is mainly towards the end. I thought it was very well written as far that goes. I enjoyed the story for the most part but there were some things that I would have liked to have been elaborated more. Regardless, I will still be looking forward to the next book.
