You might think you want to be a member - but trust me, this is one club you don't want to join. It's not a place where people go to live out their deepest, darkest sexual desires - there are no handcuffs or blindfolds. The 27 Club only admits those who die young and tragically. Having just lost my brother to the club, there is no doubt: I'm next. This is my destiny... and I was ready to yield.
But then I met Nate. He awakened a sensuality in me that had never been explored, never satisfied. I knew then that I could no longer accept my destiny. Nate's presence controls me. I'm overwhelmed by his touch, his words; my every thought is consumed by desire. I believe he was brought into my life for a reason. Nate doesn't believe in destiny, but I do. And if there's a way to cheat it - I must.

Would read again.
The story itself. Actually went back to the beginning because I was so surprised about what happened when Chapter 2 started. Having brothers, I could relate to Zoe and her brother Zach. Nate, also helped to give this story a wonderful feeling.
The narrator was perfect, really helped tremendously with bringing The 27 Club alive. (Callie Dalton). Being a native Floridian also brought the story closer to my heart.
I have not listened to any of Callie Dalton's other performances, but will be sure and look for them.
"Can you believe in just fate?"
Thank you "Kim Karr" for this very in depth book. I did not want it to end. Loved all of the twists and turns and WILL read it again, and look for you other books.
started listening to this book but never finished it the book is pornographic in places in my opinion--the story was shaping up good but couldn't get through the other parts. I would like a refund on this one
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
A nice easygoing contemporary listen about Zoey's belief that her family is cursed and some members of her family have died when they reached 27.... like her Grandfather did, her Mother did, her Brother Zach did and now she's convinced that destiny has picked her to be next. Raw and grieving over her Brother's death she's gone to Florida to clear out his house and to reconnect with his life but what she finds is Zach's handsome best friend Nate, instant chemistry and a whole lot of questions follow.
Nate's a no commitment Alpha type of guy and Zoey thinks she has no future so, whilst she's staying there boxing up her Brother's stuff they agree to have a 'no strings' fling because the sexual tension between them is off the charts. Shocking discoveries are made regarding her Brother and there's an even bigger one later on. Meanwhile she is battling her ever growing feelings for Nate and, even though they continue to have lots and lots of very enjoyable sex, she cannot allow herself to get attached to him because of her dreaded destiny. But Nate gives out mixed signals.... possessiveness, jealousy and then distance..... until a hurricane forces his hand.
Told from Zoey's POV but with a couple of chapters from Nate and Zach's POV too and the narration was good, there was humor but somehow I just couldn't connect to the characters... especially Zoey whose 'doom and gloom' attitude got repetitive and boring.
Worth a credit? There seemed to be a lot of sex but not much romance (until the end) and the plot didn't have a happy vibe and it was misleading as The 27 Club is just what Zoey called it and it wasn't an actual Club with members. So, I'm afraid I have to say NO not worth a credit IMHO but maybe a purchase when on sale.
