Porter Marshall has nearly achieved his goal of becoming a Club Sin Master, but his
new sub poses a much bigger challenge than he anticipated. Despite their mutual attraction and red-hot dungeon sessions, Kenzie Hart plays her own games. Her bratty, you-can’t-break-me attitude masks terrible personal hurt—pain that only the exquisite touch of a skilled Dom can release. But when Porter suggests taking their connection to the outside world, Kenzie denies him . . . which only makes him want her more.

Kenzie can’t ignore the raw, fierce bond she has with Porter. But she can’t give in to his dangerous demands, either. Is the passion they share real, or is he using her to solidify his status at Club Sin? And yet, who else can she trust with the shattering secrets she holds within? As Porter expertly brings her to the point of no return, Kenzie surrenders her body—and, piece by piece, her heart.

Tamed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
Kenzie is a brat - and she's proud of it.  She can get the masters at Club Sin to do whatever she wants.  Sounds a little backwards.  But she's not trying to top from the bottom or anything.  It's just her way of coping.  But the masters are tired of it and when Porter, a new dom, agrees to take her on for a month, she realizes that not all doms are so easily swayed.

Porter has been told he has to manage Kenzie in order to receive his Club Sin tattoo.  He takes a new approach to Kenzie and things go in directions neither of them anticipated.  He manages to bring out something inside her that she's long kept hidden.  But she really doesn't like letting it show.

To keep things interesting, there is also some crazy Russian threatening her.  Kenzie really shines in this story.  We see her ups and downs and the reasons for her emotional scars.  It seems like every other chapter she's developed into someone new and better.  Porter, on the other hand, just never seemed to go anywhere.  Don't get me wrong, he was just about perfect already, but with so much growth in Kenzie it really made him look stagnant at times.

I think I know what couple is coming up next, and it's going to be super interesting.  This is such a wonderful series that really looks into why people enter the lifestyle and what they can get out of it.
