had so many awesome emails and messages from readers this week about
Sweet Obsession! Yay! Also some questions. (Oh, and yet another email
asking for more Heller brothers hockey books!)
So in case others have the same questions I thought I'd post here too...
Book 2 in the Windy City Kink series will be out October 7 - All Messed
up. We will meet up again with Jack and Sasha briefly...and Kevin.
Lots of you want to know about Kevin! Well, some may be disappointed
to know he doesn't get his own book. I wasn't sure if the romance world
was ready for Kevin! But we do meet up with him again more in All Messed
Up and definitely in Book 3.
As for the Heller Brothers - I'll
never say never...but I do have another hockey series in the works,
book one is finished and books two and three are semi-planned...so stay
I’ve been thinking about something that was written in one of the reviews of Sweet Obsession about Sasha.
I’m kind of an old lady. My twenties were quite a few years
ago, but I know in my twenties, even as a married woman, I was still figuring
out a lot of things about sex. I did not know that BDSM existed. Maybe the
world has changed since then. Is BDSM so mainstream now that young women in
their twenties know all about it and understand it? I get that Fifty Shades of
Grey may have opened people’s eyes to some things, but that wasn’t a really deep
exploration of BDSM. Is it not realistic that a young woman who fantasizes
about certain things tries to deny what she really wants because it’s been
drilled into her head that they’re bad, wrong and dangerous? That letting a man hit you is abuse?
That putting yourself into a vulnerable position with a man and allowing that
is the height of stupidity?
Maybe those of us who read a lot of BDSM romances think that
everyone else in the world gets this. But I don’t think that’s the case. I bet there are a lot of people who don't get BDSM and do believe it's dangerous and wrong. And I
think Sasha learning to accept that part of herself despite all those years of
feeling shame and guilt was a more difficult journey than just one day
admitting what she really wants and needs.
I think there are all kinds of sexual hang-ups that people
work a lifetime to overcome, to not be ashamed of. I bet there are things some
people never overcome and live their whole lives feeling ashamed of. I don’t
think it’s a matter of just snapping out of it. What do you think?
Sasha Bendel is a bundle of nerves as she knocks on the door of
a Gold Coast penthouse. Her landscape design business took a hard hit
when one of her biggest clients defaulted on his payment, and she
desperately needs this rooftop garden design project to get back in

out of her life when they were discovered engaging in some youthful

intimidate him into giving up the love of his life. With the help of a
sensei, he's overcome his obstacles and accepted his sexual
dominance. Now he's back in Chicago to claim what's his--Sasha.
One look at Jack brings back all the forbidden desires Sasha's
put on lock-down since that shameful night. No way can she turn down
this money-is-no-object job. . .but can she resist Jack's
no-knots-barred determination to recapture her heart?

"...a delicious story that drew me in from the moment I
started reading it. The story is compelling, the characters are
believable and down to earth and the sex scenes are realistic,
provocative and scorching hot. There are also some interesting
secondary characters that I hope to see in future books. Thank you,
Kelly Jamieson for another amazing story." Night Owl

chemistry between Jack and Sasha is scorching. The sex scenes were blistering…I
had a hard time putting this book down. I loved it. Overall, this was a
fantastic book. I can’t wait for the next book in the series."
"Ms. Jamieson very beautifully
describes the internal struggle faced by Sasha in particular…This novel also
holds one of the most beautiful Shibari scenes I have ever
encountered, mostly described by using the senses. It absolutely gave me
goosebumps!!An insightful, revealing
and sensory indulgence!”
