The Club Series, by Lauren Rowe : Trilogy review

The Club (The Club Series Book #1), by  Lauren Rowe


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 Review :
For those of you that think this is a book about a sex Club and you do not want to read it because of it, you can’t be more wrong.
Yes, a Club does play an important role (wait, make that two clubs, each on their own way), but not in that way.
This is not a book about private sex clubs and the joys they can provide.
This is a story of 2 people finding what they really want, what they really need. It’s about their struggle to stop lying to everyone around them and themselves, when they realize that perfection is not always what’s best. It’s a story of two people that cannot take NO for an answer. They push and push and even when they cannot offer much, they find a way to come to terms with it and make the most of what they have. And that’s when words become unnecessary.
All you need is a bit of madness….
I fell for Jonas from the first few lines,
I was #teamSarah when I caught the first glimpse of her sass.
I loved how Jonas got over-excited some times, like a six year old kid.
And even if Sarah has her insecurities, and for very good reasons, her intuition guides her amazingly well and she is able to shed a lot of light in Jonas’ life.
Their interaction can only be described as HOT HOT HOT!!!
As for the things that are left unsaid…. Well, I prefer them that way!

The Reclamation (The Club Series Book #2), by Lauren Rowe

Jonas and Sarah’s addictive love story picks up right where the first book left off, hurtling to a heart-stopping conclusion that will leave readers breathless and screaming for the unforgettable final installment of The Club Trilogy.

Sarah: “My entire life has spiraled into chaos—and yet, all I can think about is my raging, thumping, insatiable addiction to Jonas’ magical touch. He’s unleashed an all-consuming hunger inside me that can only be satisfied when Jonas finally surrenders to me the same way I’ve surrendered to him—mind, body and soul.”

My Review :
Having already read The Redemption (I couldn’t put my kindle down, so I read the books back to back), I have to say that The Reclamation is my favorite book of the trilogy.
We get to see much more of the heroes’ characters and get a better look at the secondary, too!
I love the fact that it’s fast paced and it doesn’t waste your time in needless details.
The storyline is solid, no voids there, while keeping the romance and chemistry in sizzling levels.
Jonas still brings up his 6year old self and sometimes he is a bit naïve. That comes at odds with his character, as we know it, yet it blends perfectly with the glimpses we see of his soul.
Sometimes, I couldn’t understand why Jonas was written that way, but the more I was getting in the book, the better my understanding.
And the ending of chapter 14…. Oh! That ending!!

The Redemption (The Club Series Book #3), by Lauren Rowe

“There’s never been a love like ours and there never will be again. We’re the greatest love story ever told. Our love is so pure and true, we’re the amazement of the gods.”

In the final, heart-racing installment of THE CLUB TRILOGY, Jonas Faraday continues his quest to overcome his demons. Is he fated for a lifetime of heartbreak and tragedy—or will he finally find his redemption?

**Contains graphic adult content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+

My Review :
This is the final book of the trilogy and I really wish there was more!!
Once more, Sarah proves just how smart she is, by handling unexpected situations surprisingly well!
I like how it isn’t filled with action, but still focuses on the romantic/erotic part of the book, even if things are ready to go straight to hell, in a moment’s notice.
I enjoyed how I was hanging on the edge of my seat, until the end of the book.
Having finished the whole trilogy, I can safely say that those are 3 of the best books I’ve read and I appreciated the fact that they were well researched. There was not one fact, one detail, that was not true, or that was twisted in a way to fit into the storyline, as it happens in other books.
Last, but not least, I have said it time and again that I enjoy books that prompt me to use a dictionary. The Club trilogy is among them.
Ms. Rowe isn’t satisfied in walking the line the way everyone else does and it’s proven since book #1. Personally, I’m glad she has chosen a unique way of writing and gave us 3 amazing books to read. ~ Kiki
