The Club - Book Review

While checking out FB one day, I stumbled upon some blog gushing over The Club by Lauren Rowe.  Saying something like, say hello to our new Christian Gray.  Well I did say hello to Jonas Faraday and decided I really like him and I'm going to keep him!  MINE!!



Blurb;
When playboy businessman Jonas Faraday receives a private note from the anonymous intake agent assigned to process his online application to an exclusive club, he becomes obsessed with finding her and giving her the satisfaction she claims has always eluded her, in order to fulfill his own desperate need for redemption.

Sarah: “When I read Jonas Faraday’s brutally honest personal message on his application to The Club—I practically climaxed at my desk. I’m an idiot to risk losing my job but I couldn’t resist contacting him. I knew my confession would be like dangling an irresistible carrot in front of his nose—but never in a million years did I think he’d actually hunt me down.”

Jonas: “I was shocked to get my intake agent’s email—I’d attached that note to my application on a whim, never expecting a reply from an actual person, let alone a reply as mind blowing as that. Her message was so alluring, so irresistible, I’ve been spiraling into a full-blown obsession ever since I got it. What’s her name? What does she look like? Finding her is my top priority.”

In The Club, what starts out as an innocent exploration of attraction quickly spirals into a steamy story of unbridled passion, obsession, heartbreak, and, ultimately, redemption.

4.5 Stars

Sarah is a college student working on her law degree, to make some extra cash she processes applications for an exclusive sex club; The Club.  A club that Jonas has joined and was very open and honest on his application to join the club.  Something in his application and photo's push Sarah to email him back, opening the proverbial Pandora's Box.  She could lose her job, but she could lose her mind if she doesn't respond back to the Woman Wizard.  (Love that name).  Is she willing to risk it all on a single chance to have her first "O"? 

My Jonas - Pick your jaw up off the floor!!!  

As for Sarah, just insert a picture of yourself.  Trust me!  You'll want Jonas all to yourself after the first chapter of the book.  He has a way with words, that make your knees weak.  Drunk in Love, would be a good phrase.  

The first part of this book, is hot foreplay in the way of words/letters written to each other through email.  It was HOT!  I loved it and was jealous, because my inbox doesn't get random hot messages.  Anyhow, after learning about Jonas Faraday and his worldliness, I grew to like him and actually respect him.  Sarah has her own set of issues that she is working on too.  With that being said, there were only a few times with Sarah that I wanted to scream at her for tossing her entire heart into the Jonas ring.   I understood her trust issues and I understood Jonas' blame issues.  I get that, but together they were like dirt and water, mixing so well together.  

Ms. Rowe writes a truly swoon worth Jonas.  I must concur with the blogger who spoke about Mr. Faraday, watch your back Mr. Gray, Jonas Faraday is coming for you!
