I listened to this book on Audible. It was released early there because of some issue Audible has with releasing the books of indie authors. I tried really hard to wait until the official release date, but I'm weak. I really stink at reviewing books that I love because they usually devolve into "OMG!!! I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!! YAAAAASSSSS!!!" or some such nonsense nonsense. In an effort to avoid the inevitable devolution, I'll keep this short. Lauren Rowe has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Though I think I'm a bit outside of her target demographic age-wise, I have no difficulty identifying with her characters. Her writing is smart and witty, and I really like her use of language. Oh, and Lauren's books are freaking HOT. I am very much looking forward to the next ones in this series, while at the same time, I'm kind of hesitant to read them because I'm not ready to let the characters go. I will OF COURSE get them when they are released and devour them just as voraciously as always, but I might feel a little sad about it :)
This story not only lived up to my expectations but surpassed it!
I have read the ecopy of this series & this audio edition has only made it come alive!
Once again Lauren Rowe has given us characters that we love to devour & reading that melts our panties right off our bodies....Smokin Hot!...Amazeballs!!
Lauren & John have followed up again with an awesome job...Well done!
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
There really should be a sixth star, a Gold star, to be given only when a book surpasses all others and reaches the pinnacle of listening experiences - a talented gifted author delivers a mesmerizing unforgettable story which is brought to life by great narration. And, if that were the case, then this listen would, IMO, get the Gold star because it quite simply blew me away.
For a while it follows alongside Jonas and Sarah's story about finding and catching the Criminals that are illegally running The Club and then it moves the storyline forward as clues are pieced together, more shocking revelations are stumbled across and they all come to the decision that they are way way way out of their depths. But the 'catch the bad guys' is secondary to the main romance driven story of Jonas' drool-worthy, handsome, tattooed and sexy Brother Josh (aka The Playboy) and Sarah's BFF the beautiful, feisty and fun loving Kat (aka The Party Girl). When these two are introduced, the mutual attraction is instant, mind blowing, all consuming and you can almost here the ding ding ding of the Jackpot...... but Playboy Josh has finally met his match, his equal and his Achilles Heel.... because Kat has claws.
Something Josh says has Kat wanting, needing and desperate to read Josh's Application to The Club so she gives him an ultimatum and, at the start, it was just curiosity, a game they played but, as time went by and they grew closer, it became a deep desire to understand him and get to know him better. The ultimatum was no kissing and no sex until he handed over his Application..... but Josh wasn't going to give in to this sexual Terrorist's threats and demands, oh no he'd rather walk away. One week later and they were reunited but now both were more desperate, both were more frustrated and both were more determined to win..... and they both stooped to crazy levels to achieve it. Which led to an intense and insane build-up of lust coupled with emotional need which manifested into endless amounts of slick, smooth, very funny and quick witted banter/texts, loads of dirty talk, some baring of souls and a seismic sexual explosion that was way waaaay off the charts when one of them finally gave in. The sex was like lava..... molten hot, steamy and all consuming.
I was totally and utterly lost in this intense and well written listen..... the characters and plot line have consumed me and I'm frantically writing this review eager to move on to Part II in this Trilogy - although I'm frustrated too because I thought it was just a Duet and now I have to wait for Part III to be released (sob sob). IMO, to get the best from this mind-blowingly awesome series, it would be best to start at book 1, get the background story and deliciously work your way through each and every one of them. Dual POV's and the narrators were great which brought the characters, and all their mixed up emotions, to life..... and made this a very enjoyable listen.
Worth a credit? Never mind creditworthy..... this is Oscar worthy!!
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
I'm on book two because I loved this one so much. It's so funny and and well written. I want to hang out with these people everyday of my life. I find myself at my desk just cracking up laughing. My boss may think I'm smoking some sticky icky pot or something. Get all three books you will love them I'm so impatient about getting to book three while I'm waiting for the Texans vs Chiefs Wildcard game. GO TEXANS!!!
Monkey Love all the way. Josh and Kats battle of their wits is out of this world funny and steaming hot! A series that will mean lt your panties off. LOVE it!!!!!!
I really like the book! But I think they could've chosen better voices for the characters. Kate voice (Lauren) was a little bleh for me. Same as Josh's voice. I also didn't like the fact that they made Kat seem like a slut. But overall the book was great! I do want to read the next book!
I had high hopes for this book based on reviews but found it boring. In fact I fast forwarded past whole chapters and who does that on first books in a series. Maybe the other two books will be better but I may not take the risk.
they both draw you into the story
its not serious all the time plus they are completely different to Jonas & Sarah
they both read with feeling bu I've got to say John Lane has a lovely voice which helps
yes I laughed a lot
great start to Josh & Kat
