Ruby has a secret. Beneath her prissy exterior lies a submissive in desperate need of a Master. After her past disastrous attempt at BDSM, she buried her cravings deep and told herself she’d be fine without giving in to them. Then she meets Joshua. He’s everything she’s ever fantasized about-and everything she’s feared. Joshua didn’t start out wealthy-he’s an ex-marine who made his fortune after seeing his fair share of war. His wealth and lavish lifestyle are nothing next to his driving need to claim Ruby for his own. He’d give up everything to collar her for a lifetime, and he’ll have to use every sinful Dominant trick he knows to make her let him in.


Review:  Claiming Ruby by Scarlett Sanderson is not part of series but I hope we get to see some of the secondary characters get their own book. I chose this book because after reading the summery I wanted to know how this book turned out.

Ruby Romano is the owner of a bookstore and she lives above in an apartment. She is an intelligent woman who has curves in all the right places. While Ruby is a sub, she keeps it buried after a failed attempt at submission when her trust was broken, and she is not sure anyone can help her gain that back.

Joshua is a man who goes after what he wants. He did not start out wealthy; he earned every penny through hard work and dedication. Joshua is a Dom and can see the sub in Ruby that she tries to hide. He is very persistent.

There is a powerful connection between Ruby and Joshua. No matter how much each tries to hide or bury the connection it keeps them together. While Ruby is wary about submitting to Joshua, she still does it, unable to resist the chemistry. The sex scenes were not just imaginative but intense as well.

This book was well written with interesting and engaging characters. At 113 pages long, this book had a well defined beginning, middle, and end. Overall, this book was wonderful. I will be keeping an eye out for more book by Ms. Sanderson.
