âDeep, commanding voices, raw sex, BDSM are you ready to hear more? Laura Kaye has built a believable world in Blasphemy.
Quinton Ross, one of the 12 Masters who own and run the BDSM Club built in the confines of an old church building, the name of Blasphemy quite fitting, but nothing about how Quinton feels toward Cassia is blasphemous. The girl who once stood him up, he feels like an ass once he learns the reason she did was because she was trapped in a cave and literally had just been rescued.
It has been a few years, but Cassia hasn't gotten over her crush on Quinton, nor has she gotten over the fear which took over her body from her ordeal while being cave bound. A nice word for the terror she felt for the accident which killed the rest of her party. Left in the wet cave with nothing but the bugs and her own fear for company, Cassie finds herself afraid of the dark which makes it impossible for her to do her job as a geologist.
But under Quinton's tutelage she is learning to feel again. Learning to trust another once more. The basic story is what you'll find in most Romance novels. Kaye brings the heat, but I felt this one was lacking in chemistry for me the reader. Normally, I'm all in when Kaye writes a book, but I didn't feel the sensory deprivation Cassia felt. Her fear of the dark wasn't painted well enough to make my heart race. But these are the hazards of reading an ARC which has not been completely edited.
Do I still recommend this book? Absolutely! Will I purchase the paperback version for my library collection? You betcha! And if Blasphemy were real, I might be the fly on the wall, watching and observing too.
12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemyâ¦
He wants to dominate her sensesâand her heartâ¦

When an accident leaves Cassia Locke with a paralyzing fear of the dark, sheâll try anything to get help. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for helpâthe hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom sheâd always crushed onâand once stood up.
Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he canât pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill.
