about

A trust broken*…*

Kendra soon realizes that she’s not without power in her relationship with Reid—she can provoke him to explore new territory in his determination to please her. Being with him is everything she’s always wanted and more, and she’s not going to take the chance of losing his attention.

Reid has never been so enthralled with a woman as he is with Kendra. There’s something about her that feeds his need to control and possess. He’s sure nothing will convince him to let her go—until he discovers that she’s deliberately broken his rules. Releasing her nearly kills Reid, though he knows her choice means their game has no future.

What he doesn’t realize is that his choice will leave Kendra undefended when she most needs protection. Will Reid discover his mistake in time?

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 stars--satisfied SATISFIED is the third and final installment in Ella Ardent’s adult, serialized contemporary DANGEROUS erotic, romance trilogy focusing on billionaire Reid Stirling, and Kendra Jones. SATISFIED should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately upon the events of episode two SHATTERED. NOTE: SATISFIED contains explicit scenes of bondage and discipline, and may not be suitable for all readers. Told from several third person points of view SATISFIED is a bit of a departure from the previous two episodes in that the story line focuses on betrayal, revenge, murder and more. Two years earlier, Reid Stirling’s first wife went missing and her body recently recovered with all clues pointing to the man himself. Kendra is determined to prove Reid’s innocence but someone is hoping to destroy Reid’s life, one victim and one set up at a time. What ensues are Kendra’s struggles to reveal the truth, and one man’s battle with an unknown predator that threatens the woman with whom he has fallen in love. SATISFIED is the heart stopping and suspense filled conclusion to Ella Ardent’s three part Dangerous serialized novel. There are moments of action, suspense, mystery, drama, danger, love and loss. Not everyone will survive; the truth will finally be revealed; and in the end Kendra loses much more than she could have ever imagined. I did struggle with the rush to the finish and there was no real resolution (or details) to the conclusion of the stalker story line. The relationship between Kendra and Reid suffers from Reid’s guilt and inability to let go of the past, and in the end, Kendra is too easily swayed by one man’s attempts to ask forgiveness and for the future. SATISFIED is the best of the three episodes as the focus is no longer on the BDSM relationship but on the threats against our leading couple. The premise is entertaining with heart pounding suspense; the characters are colorful, charismatic and dynamic; the romance suffers with one man’s battle between his heart and his head.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars-erotic and dramatic 3.5 stars---SEDUCED is the first installments in Ella Ardent’s adult, contemporary DANGEROUS erotic, romantic suspense trilogy focusing on businessman/Dom/Master Reid Stirling, and PA/slave Kendra Jones. NOTE: SEDUCED contains graphic sexual situations and mature themes, including a F/F scenario that may be triggers for some more sensitive readers. Told from several third person perspectives including Reid and Kendra SEDUCED focuses on the D/s, Master to Slave relationship between businessman Reid Stirling, and his PA Kendra Jones. Hours within purchasing Esperanza Enterprises, a struggling clothing design and manufacturing company, Reid Stirling discovers a series of erotic photos of a woman in various forms of bondage and dress. To his surprise and amusement the former owner’s assistant is the focus of the intimate images, and a woman who would do anything to be part of the D/s community. What ensues is the building Master to Slave relationship between Reid and Kendra, as someone behind the scenes sets the stage for the destruction of our story line hero. SEDUCED follows the training, education and contractual agreements between Reid Stirling and Kendra Jones. Kendra is a woman who pushes the limits of her relationship with Master Reid but she is also a woman who goes into the relationship wholly aware of what it is she wants and just how far her limits can be tested. There is no coercion between the leading couple although the relationship is identified as Master to a slave. Reid Stirling knows his time with Kendra is temporary even though Kendra herself is hoping for something more. The BDSM scenes are graphic and intense. SEDUCED is also a story of mystery and suspense. Someone is stalking Reid and Kendra-the intent and purpose is unknown at this time but the person involved has the ability to get in and get around when no one is home. The premise is erotic and dramatic; the characters are colorful and dynamic; the romance is limited to the Master and Slave relationship boundaries.
