Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Crimson Elite, the most exclusive sex club in the world. Enter at your own risk, and always remember our number-one rule: You must never speak of Crimson Elite - the punishment is severe. 

If God created the perfect man he would closely resemble Creed, on the outside that is. He’s as cavalier as they come. Unconcerned. Cold. Dismissive. I wonder if he has any feelings at all. And when his lips touch mine, everything goes black. He takes me into his world, and it’s the most magical thing I’ve ever experienced. And I’m sucked in time and time again. Like a moth to the flame, I am ready to be set alight. 

Elicea is a firecracker. She has piqued my interest, and no one piques my interest anymore. Beautiful women are what I do - it’s my work. Not one of them has managed to get their claws into me the way she does. It’s as if she’s seeing my icy heart and trying to melt it, set it alight with each touch of her sinful lips. But that can’t work, it won’t work. Not in my world. 

All books in the series can be listened to as stand-alone stories.

Contains mature themes.

BLEW ME AWAY

I have tried one of T. L. Smith's books before.. but sadly it didn't wow me. However, recently.. okay okay - for a long time now, I've been a wee bit of a stalker when it comes to all things narrated by Teddy Hamilton (deep breath in.. and sigh). So, with the cover pic, the blurb and Teddy, I was hoping for greatness.. and thankfully that's exactly what I got. It's a great start to this new series centered around four wealthy friends who own a VERY secret and VERY elite Sex Club. Each of the men have their separate roles within the Club.. and Creed's job is getting new women. So, when a beautiful feisty brunette stirs his interest and suddenly needs a job, well, what else can he do but offer her one.

Her new bartending job is absolutely perfect for sassy Elicea.. but Creed's smouldering stares, droolworthy good looks, protective glares and possessive actions are distracting her.. and are also all kind of dangerous. He's a man of few words, he's oh so sexy but broody too, he's intense and closed-off to all.. and every sizzling smouldering look between them melts her panties and tests her willpower. Both of them try to ignore their explosive chemistry.. but how long can that last? and what dramatic twist could happen to bring them together? Well sorry folks but I'm not telling.

Right from the start I just knew this was going to be an awesome listen. I got that 'fluttery' excited feeling early on.. you know the one.. and this love story certainly lived up to my initial feeling. I was gripped with Creed and Elicea's sizzling interactions, intrigued by the Crimson Elite's alpha owners, proud of Elicea's strength of character as she rolled with the punches, had a backbone and stood her ground, equally proud of Creed's character growth and I was blown away with the whole package.

Worth a credit? Yes definitely - it's not one to be missed. There's interesting characters, a slow-burn high tension romance, sexy times, drama and a hiccup or two along the way. The dual POV narration was wonderfully done by Mackenzie and Teddy who brought all the delicious feels to life. Creed and Elicea's love story did reach its happy place.. but I'm sure we'll be hearing more about them in cameo appearances in future books as each of the men find love.

Teddy is beautifully flawed here!!

I'm trying to keep my review short. First I missed that this was a series with a cliffhanger but I love the book regardless!! Mackenzie Cartwright is being partnered with some really great male narrators and is great herself. I really liked her narration too!!
This story is like taking a bite of the forbidden fruit but still loving it.
Teddy knows how to do dark, sexy and bad on top of sounding delectable. There's some violence, sex, angst and an unexpected storyline with a few twists and turns and a not so predictable love story. Teddy was awesome as Creed but he's such a favorite of mine so maybe I am a little biased. 😉 Loved it and really looking forward to the next book. Great story by T.L. Smith.

Not impressed...

I totally got this book because of Teddy and now I am so disappointed. This book was all over place. The heroine was sooo weak. I just couldn’t figure out what this book was really about. A sex club, a bartender, a hit man, and sex...The reviews for this one are very misleading. I will not follow the series.

Could not finish – not for me.

This is the first book in a series and a stand-alone. I bought both the Kindle and Audible versions to Whispersync them. At the time, it was cheaper than an Audible Credit, so it was well worth it to get both versions.

***Be warned the rest of this review is mildly spoilerish.***

I could not finish this book. I am writing this review to help anyone trying to decide whether to purchase or not. I misunderstood “sex club” from the blurb to mean a place where adults go with partners to have sex (like Dominants and Submissives do in BDSM novels). But no: Sex Club means “brothel.” The hero, Creed, is one of the owners. He “collects” women to work in his “Club.” We are told the women’s pay and conditions are very good compared to where they have been rescued from, and I have to accept that (and pray it’s right in order to see Creed as a good guy. The heroine, Elicea is employed by Creed to be a bar-tender. Their chemistry is intense; he is a very silent-type bad-boy alpha.

There are a few early incidents that demonstrate Creed is a violent enforcer type of character. Somehow I overlooked them hoping his character would improve. I stopped reading, however, when Elicea discovers Creed administering “severe punishment” (description from the blurb) in the form of injuries causing the loss of a lot of blood to another person.

At this point, I couldn’t escape the fact that Creed is a conscienceless, violent thug. My romance novel taste does not include this type of character as heroic. But other readers may not feel revulsion the way I do. I need Creed to stop his violent ways. Could Elicea help him redeem himself with half a book to go (2 hours of Audible listening)? I don’t know, because I didn’t stick around to find out what happens next. I was too shaken. This book is not for me. I’m returning the novel and Audio, sadly.

And I say “sadly” because I loved the narrators, Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton. They were wonderful, but I couldn’t cope with Creed’s work and life choices - they caused me distress. If this doesn’t bother you, however, you might love this book as other reviewers clearly do.

Great start to a new series

Smith has done a great job in developing Creed as a very dark and interesting character. This put together with Teddy Hamilton has created magic! 😍😍😍
Can’t wait for the next instalments featuring the other Crimson Elite crew!
