When playboy businessman Jonas Faraday receives a private note from the anonymous intake agent assigned to process his online application to an exclusive club, he becomes obsessed with finding her and giving her the satisfaction she claims has always eluded her, in order to fulfill his own desperate need for redemption.

Sarah: “When I read Jonas Faraday’s brutally honest personal message on his application to The Club—I practically climaxed at my desk. I’m an idiot to risk losing my job but I couldn’t resist contacting him. I knew my confession would be like dangling an irresistible carrot in front of his nose—but never in a million years did I think he’d actually hunt me down.”

Jonas: “I was shocked to get my intake agent’s email—I’d attached that note to my application on a whim, never expecting a reply from an actual person, let alone a reply as mind blowing as that. Her message was so alluring, so irresistible, I’ve been spiraling into a full-blown obsession ever since I got it. What’s her name? What does she look like? Finding her is my top priority.”

In The Club, what starts out as an innocent exploration of attraction quickly spirals into a steamy story of unbridled passion, obsession, heartbreak, and, ultimately, redemption.

my thoughts

Wow! I honestly didn’t know what I was going to get with this book. New author, new series, no reviews on it (at the time), but I absolutely enjoyed the hell out of it. I read this sucker in one night, and let me tell you, I was a goner from the very first chapter. Mysterious, intense, steamy, and smart, THE CLUB was a unique gem that I couldn’t get enough of. It has a sassy, hysterical, witty heroine and an adorable, gorgeous, poetic hero. Together they will break down each other’s walls and conquer past demons to find an epic kind of love.

I just absolutely LOVE finding new authors, and finding Lauren Rowe was perfect! She writes my kind of books, but puts a twist on them, keeping it fresh, sexy, and erotically delicious! Everything from the premise of the story, to the main characters, to the secondary characters drew me in instantly. There was laughter and there were tears. There was angst, and there was drama. The steam factor was off the charts, and the chemistry was on point. Jonas and Sarah were great, complex characters to get to know. These two were not looking for each other. They were not looking for love, but what they found was something deeper; something that if they can learn to get out of their own heads, can turn into something beautiful and unforgettable. Connecting and relating to a character makes the story so much richer, and I experienced that with Sarah. I loved her attitude towards everything. I loved her quick wit, her sarcastic comebacks, and her strength. Jonas is our damaged hero. He is our man whore turned one-woman man. At first he has no problem telling you he wants nothing more than one hot, sweaty night, but a return email ends up changing all that, and he becomes obsessed with the girl behind the correspondence.

Their love affair is intense, passionate, and overwhelming. You feel the emotion coming through the pages and it becomes something more than just a love story. This page-turner had me up late in the night begging for more. I’m heavily invested in these characters now, and I can’t wait to dive into book two of the series and the continuation of Sarah and Jonas’ romantic journey.
