Great story!!

Any additional comments?

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 :)

PHENOMENAL...... SIMPLY PHENOMENAL

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!!

I'm In Love With This Half Of This Seris!!!!!!

Any additional comments?

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!!!

Just can't finish

I liked the Morgan Brother books so I thought I would give this series a try. I only got through half of the first Club book and gave up. Josh and Kat got better reviews so I thought why not. Did not get any better. I just hated it. The story line and the narration was just terrible. Kat is not a main character I can get behind. Just juvenile and ridiculous. The narration did not help. I got about half way through and I am just irritated by every conversation and internal monologues. Don't waste your time.

Vegas Baby

This is basically a recap of Jonas and Sarah's story, but told from the POV of Josh and Kat and what they were doing once Jonas figured out that Sarah had been working for criminals instead of a legitimate escort service.

This is everything that happened in Vegas, but what Josh and Kat were up to.

Great Story, MEH narration

The story is GREAT but the narrators could’ve been a lot better. One thing that bothered me in the whole experience of listening to this is hearing the phrase “Holy fucking shitballs” TOO often. other than that, would recommend

Playboy and Party-Girl

This book was so HOT! Josh Faraday gave me a total lady boner. Made me wish I had a bestie like Kat Morgan. These two do not disappoint.

Review of Entire Storyline for Josh and Kat

These last 3 books follow Josh and Kat and the first book does overlap some of the books on Jonas and Sarah, but for the most part you are getting a look through the side of Josh and Kat so it isn't an exact replica of the other books you've already listened to. I have to say I enjoyed Josh and Kat more than I did Jonas and Sarah. Josh and Kat just had this chemistry that was insane.

Josh Faraday is Jonas Faraday's twin brother and business partner and Kat is Sarah's best friend. These books are filled with major laugh out loud moments and intense heartbreaking moments. The Playboy and the Party-Girl with a hyphen had me hooked once I met them in Jonas and Sarah's books. This is one couple you can't help but fall in love with. Their rapport is undeniable and their banter is hilarious and addicting.

It is in this series that you get introduced into Kat Morgan's family and instantly fall in love with them. Thankfully, there is an entire series on the Morgan Brothers. I've already listened to the first 4 books and can't wait for the last one to come out this year on the final Morgan Brother, Dax.

Overall, I loved this wrap up to this series and storyline on Jonas and Sarah and Josh and Kat. Luckily, you still see them in all the Morgan Brothers books so this isn't the last of them.

As far as narration, I thought Lauren Rowe and John Lane did an awesome job.

Josh💘Kat🔥The Playboy & the Party Girl!

The Club series continues with Josh & Kat’s story starting with when they 1st met. If you read this series in the intended order you will be familiar with The Club’s storylines. The difference is this time they come from Josh & Kat’s view and their own storylines are built up from there. It is great to see a different perspective on things and watch Josh & Kat’s relationship blossom. You get the same great wit & humor in this book as you did in the 1st four. I loved this book and series and look forward continue on with the rest of the series but my heart still goes to team Jonas & Sarah. But we’ll see, maybe the next book persuades me otherwise.

I listened to the Audible edition, the talented John Lane and Lauren Rowe continue do a wonderful job narrating and and entertaining the listeners with their storytelling.
