Claimed begins a year after the conclusion of Owned, following Kayne and Ellie’s journey back to one another. I actually enjoyed this more than the previous instalment, which for me wasn’t quite dark enough; this book does not try to be so dark, and although it has dark elements, particularly towards the end, it was nice to have Kayne give Ellie a bit of control as to how their relationship would progress. It was particularly interesting to have both characters develop in such a way that they could come to terms with who they really were, their past, and what they really wanted.
Kayne is my drug of choice and I can’t wait to get high.
Although I still found Kayne’s attempts to justify his behaviour irritating, the fact that this book had much less darkness meant it was easier to focus on and understand his past. I have to admit though, I’m still more of a Jett fan than a Kayne fan! I also once again wish the subplot had a little more focus than just in the last part of the book.
“No matter where you go or who you’re with, you’ll always be mine.”
Overall, a strong read, well-written and positively filthy.
