4 stars-- Claimed (Outlaws #1) by Elle Kennedy

Holy hot damn! Elle Kennedy never fails to deliver. Scorching hot, captivating and totally addictive. Claimed was one helluva dirty, sexy, fun ride.

So. Decades ago a massive war hit and everyone now lives under a ruling counsel's thumb--you either live in the cities where everything is controlled and class, religion and free will are all eliminated or...you're outlaws who live outside of the cities and embrace all things wild, wicked and wanton...and you're hunted by the counsel's enforcers. Such is the case with Connor and his men who have suddenly found their lives invaded by a lone female they aren't quite sure they can trust--and that might very well bring danger to their door-- but that they couldn't say no to when she needed help.

Whew! Okay. First off. I loved the characters. Connor is gruff and kind of a bastard but damn if he wasn't sexy and full of all kinds of appeal. He's a reluctant leader and nursing some serious need for revenge against the counsel's enforcers and it keeps him going with single-minded focus. And Hudson. Well. Hudson is very innocent and suddenly in a world where anything goes. It's a lot for her to take in but I loved watching her finally getting a chance to explore and open up. She's rather kickass and has a fire in her. She's also very sweet and bossy in a good way.

And then there's the other guys. This is an interesting little group of outlaws. They're all hella sexy and have some kink to them which is always delightful. I just liked getting to know them and all of their different personalities too and seeing how Hudson joining the group kind of changed them all (for the better).

Then there's the heat. Yall. Seriously. The heat in this one. It'll singe your fingers! Erotic, passionate...adventuresome. Yeah it hit all the good spots. Connor and Hudson were explosive together and you could definitely feel the push and pull of them. Add in some menage elements, a pierced cock, some public happenings. Gah yes. #dies. These guys have no inhibitions and it was delightful.
Rylan raised his head from Hudson's pussy and released a rueful sigh. "I got ahead of myself with the tongue-fucking," he confessed. "I didn't think it'd get her off."

Connor's lips twitched. "Twice."

Hudson's gray eyes were droopy and glazed as she looked at him. "I'm sorry?"
I really liked the set up of the world too. It's gritty and full of danger and had a little thrill to it. Seeing the fierceness in the Outlaws and those fighting back against the Counsel and the fears of being found by the Enforcers kept things moving along and really held my interest. I'm curious to see what will happen next with the world they live in.

All in all....noms! Claimed was crazy sexy and exciting. I'm totally panting after book two and can't wait to spend more time with these guys and the ladies that'll shake up their worlds just a little. Kennedy definitely delivered.

After a devastating war decimated most of the world, Hudson Lane has only known the oppressive life under her own father’s tyranny. She finally escapes, branding herself an outlaw and hunted by the Enforcers. Her best chance at survival is Connor Mackenzie, an aggressively sensual fugitive who opens her eyes to the wicked possibilities of a world without rules.

As the leader of a band of outlaw fighters, Connor can’t resist the beautiful stranger who asks for his protection. Despite his reservations, he agrees to introduce her to a whole new way of life. But when Connor discovers Hudson’s connection to the enemies of liberty, he wonders how far he can trust the woman who has abandoned all inhibitions to challenge every forbidden desire.
