Series: Club Sin #7
Dmitri Pratt is living out his dream. Not only does he own the ultimate playground, he’s found a special connection with his deliciously sexy sub, Presley Flynn, the woman who complements him in ways that go far beyond the bedroom. But when an anonymous blackmailer threatens to expose the elite, high-profile members of Club Sin in a notorious tabloid, Dmitri’s perfect world spirals out of control.
Before she met Dmitri, Presley never imagined she would find a Master who could deliver on all her hottest fantasies. Dmitri’s love and his sensual artistry surprise her every day, until he suddenly turns distant and cold. For the first time, Presley wonders where Dmitri’s heart truly lies: with her, or with Club Sin. As the life they’ve built together begins to crumble, Presley can only trust that Dmitri has what it takes—to defend what’s his, and win back the woman he cannot live without.
Ahh how things come full circle in this finale of the series. I’m kind of sad to see everything come to an end since i’ve been reading the stories of the club masters and their subs for so long, but i guess all good things come to an end. What’s interesting here though is that i thought we’d get the story about Miles since he’s the last dom that didn’t get his story told, however that’s not what we get here.
Things seem to be looking all nice and rosy for everyone in the story, but of course that means that something horrible is about to happen. There have been marriages, babies, pregnancies and the like, all things that Presley wants with Dimitri but things that she hasn’t gotten. She’s feeling like something is missing and that perhaps she’s not going to get it. So when catastrophe strikes, and someone has pictures of the club that now has the threat of being published in a tabloid that things spiral from bad to worse.
The journey in this final installment is that of Dimitri trying to make everything right by protecting the club and then figuring out how to make things right with Presley since she’s reached her breaking point. He has taken on all of the responsibility of things and wants to protect all of the members, but it’s coming at the cost of his relationship. The biggest question is of who’s behind it all and i’m sure all the readers like me knew exactly who to point the finger at immediately although it takes these guys a bit longer.
It’s a tough situation to be in, trying to keep things a secret from the public and keep the members happy while your life crumbles around you, and Dimitri has shown us that he’s not as perfect as we thought. He reacts differently than the guy that we’ve known and his friends are surprised as well as Presley. Its sad to watch how their relationship implodes because she’s not getting what she needs and it’s even more sad that it was coming for a while since she’s felt like he’s not quite understood what she’s wanted for the past 2 years.
The nice thing about how we resolve it all is that our author takes us on a journey of not only putting closure on things but setting the stage for a spin off – showing us that there’s a future for these folks that really makes us have hope for another exciting series. The other nice thing is that while i was under the impression that Miles perhaps wasn’t going to get his happy ending, we see how that’s resolved in this final 7th installment as well. It shows me that i need to have patience and faith in the author to really see that things can work out for the best.
So, on that note, i’m sad that this series is done with but i believe that there’s another series for me to pick up all around the DCs that we met thanks to Dimitri. Enjoy!
