Publisher's Summary

"I thought we'd reached the highest peak. I was wrong."

Jonas and Sarah's white-hot passion and unwavering love reach brand new heights in this epic continuation of their scorching hot, hilarious, and enduring love story. "Our love is the joy of the good, the wonder of the wise, the amazement of the gods. We're the envy of the gods, baby - the culmination of human possibility."

The Culmination is a full-length novel to be listened to after The Club Trilogy. Note that the trilogy ends as a complete story without cliffhanger. This fourth installment continues the story of Jonas and Sarah (and Josh, Kat, and Henn) and also contains a complete story without a cliffhanger.

Listeners 18+ only due to extremely graphic (and scorching hot) adult situations and explicit language.

PHEW, WHAT A COUPLE, WHAT A STORY & WHAT A BOOK!!!

Jonas we know has issues - is a deep thinker and his whole life is centered around, and depends upon, the love of his life, his soulmate, his wife Sarah so when her life is once again threatened and lies balanced between life or death you can feel Jonas anguish, sorrow and pain as his tortured soul stands to lose absolutely everything. And dredges up horrific bloody memories of a nightmare that no child should ever see.

But miracles and happy endings do happen (thankfully) but, from tender love scenes your plummeted into Hell along with Jonas as his premonition comes true and he stands to lose all three cherished girls in his life in one fell swoop. Completely riveting and compelling listening and, even when the danger is over, these two characters and their intense love, sexual hunger, witty banter and soul connection have you totally under their spell.

Jonas and Sarah's book 4 is a beautiful love story that could have gone tragically wrong but, in the skilled hands of Lauren Rowe, there was no question that yes, this was going to be a truly emotional roller coaster ride but it would, somehow, end in Sweetstown, Happyville USA. However, I do think there were a few too many chapters focussing and detailing on Jonas' fixation on finding out about how to give the ultimate 'gushing' sexual experience to Sarah..... interesting, informative but nevertheless still yuk.

Worth a credit? Dual POV's, great narration and we get to find out what's been happening in Josh and Kat's life too..... so it's a two-for-one deal that's also emotional, entertaining, delightful..... and yes, very very creditworthy.

Beautiful culmination!

Any additional comments?

I didn't think it was possible for me to love this series more, but The Culmination was truly that - an incredible culmination of an amazing story. It's pretty common knowledge that I think Lauren Rowe can do no wrong, but she really outdid herself this time. I loved seeing Jonas and Sarah a few years into their relationship, and continuing to learn about them as a family. I loved the little peeks into Josh and Cat. The story was extremely well written. I love that the characters all feel real, and that their actions - while certainly not always what I would choose - are completely understandable for that character. A beautiful ending to a beautiful story. I cannot more highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys smart, well written romances.<br/><br/>The audio performance is wonderful, as always.

AMAZEBALLS!!!



5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST BOOK EVER!!!,
By Stacie Sutton Burks


This review is from: The Culmination (The Club Series Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
The Culmination was just that the culmination of the EPIC love story of Sarah and Jonas!! The Characters in this Series The Club Trilogy come ALIVE on the pages of each and every book. ( there are 4) I won't lie you will cry, gasp, scream out loud and laugh your a** off!!! This book is by far my favorite and these wonderful characters have taken up space in my heart. I LOVE them all Jonas and Sarah , Josh and Kat , and let's not leave out Gracie and the babies all the babies and so many more fantastic characters. Family and its importance comes alive in this book. Is there hot steamy monkey sex ABSOLUTELY but it is so much more. Lauren Rowe has opened up her heart , her love and her crazy monkey mind writing this series and I absolutely adore her and her style of writing. She has a sense of humor that is out of this world and that's one of the many things I love about this book!!! Love , Laughter and Family!!! This is a 5 star Series. No Spoiler here READ THIS!!! Worth every penny spent. I look forward to my next Lauren Rowe Adventure!!!

Disappointing

What disappointed you about The Culmination?

The characters were cheesy and childish

Has The Culmination turned you off from other books in this genre?

no

How could the performance have been better?

Lauren Rowe is an excellent narrator but John Lane was no good for this genre he sounded like an infomercial trying to sell sex it just didn't work.

Any additional comments?

Well I loved the first 3 in the Club series but this one was very disappointing The story line was a good continuation of the romance between Jonas and Sarah while the actions and conversations in this book were childish, immature and dribble, Jonas was more interested in sex than his new born twins in the NICU and the sex appeared to be just about the shock value and pushing boundaries more than any sensuality to it.Now the male narrator John Lane needs to stick to selling insurance for infomercials, the one star goes to Lauren Rowe for her exceptional narration.

Getting the best HEA

I absolutely loved this last book in the Jonas and Sarah books. These two have had to work hard and get over some really big jumps to get here. I love all the detail Ms. Rowe gives us as I could picture every scene. There's a certain part of the book that bothered me that when you listen to it you'll understand, that pretty much sceeved me out. Aside from that I'm even more in love with this Farraday brother.

Very sexy but sometime too crass

I'm all down for naughty sexy talk but at time Jonas was kinda gross. I have really thick skin and there were points in the book I was just grossed out by not necessarily the scene or the act, but how he was while performing it. Overall, it was ok. I much prefer Sarah's point of view.

The end came too soon

I love this series. I have never read anyone else's work where the manic thoughts of a character's mind actually come across through words. Obviously, in audio form, great narration can parpetuate this feeling but it starts with great writing. These two characters definitely suffer from a little craziness but it is the best kind of crazy. It is the kind of crazy that all of us believers in true romance strive for.

Are these first four novels, in this series, worth the four credits required to purchase them? In my humble opinion, hell yeah! They will make you smile, laugh, cry and finally sigh with contentment.
Enjoy!
( Warning, if you cannot handle explicit sex scenes and the words "red wings" make you cringe with disgust, this series is not for you.)
