Sex Club Secrets Review Tour

Blurb:
Ella is in love with her best friend Kade. But her love has not been returned, and when bisexual Kade shows no signs of becoming romantic toward her, she decides to call a halt on her unrequited love and accept an invitation to a celebrated Melbourne sex club.

Kade is distressed when the woman he is beginning to see as more than a friend decides to visit Secrets before he can tell her how he feels. He follows her into the club and witnesses her at play with the enigmatic Anteros, a sexy god-like man who seems to know exactly how to satisfy her innermost cravings. But Anteros also feeds the hidden desires within Kade. How can he admit his feelings for Ella when he's not sure he can commit with his whole heart?

Anteros is one of the erotes, an aspect of Eros and the ancient Greek god of requited and unrequited love. He has heard the call of these would-be lovers and intends to show them that friendship can sometimes be the best place to kick start a lasting romantic relationship. But love cannot flourish unless it is returned, and how will he convince Kade—a man who occasionally enjoys other men—that he can be true to the woman he loves? What will happen to this couple when the night ends and they return to the real world outside the door of Secrets?

Has one of the gods of love finally taken on a challenge he cannot fulfill?

Excerpt:
"Welcome to Secrets, Ella. We're really glad you decided to join us this evening." Her voice was husky and sensual, and a primitive quiver darted across Ella's skin. Wow.

"Thank you," she answered, her skittering heart lending a slight breathlessness to her own voice. "My, ah, friend decided not to join me this evening, so—"

"That's fine." The woman's mouth curled up at one corner in an expression that was almost sly. "Quite often we find it better if patrons come alone, anyway. Less chance of inhibitions getting in the way. Come through, Ella. There's someone here who's been waiting to meet you…very impatiently, I must say."

Her tone was indulgent. Whoever was waiting was clearly a favored—what had she called it?—patron.

Ella's curiosity grew as the other woman wrapped long, crimson-tipped fingers around her upper arm and drew her further into the venue. Would whoever was waiting to meet her be the one who had sent the invitation? Would it be someone she knew?

I hope not.

The only person for whom she had sexual feelings had been left outside the door of the club seething with displeasure at his vanilla friend daring to try something new. And without his approval, either.

Bad luck, Kade. I'm here tonight for me. No one else. Just me. And my unrequited desires, apparently.

The flip-flop of her stomach sent a wave of warmth spiraling downward and her womb squeezed in nervous anticipation of what might lie ahead.

I'm in a freaking sex club! I can't believe I'm here.

My Review:
3.5 stars, rounded up to 4

This was a very good erotic romance that I enjoyed. I liked that it had a decent plot, and that it wasn’t just about their sexual encounter, but actually worked towards a potential HEA, though the book leaves off at a HFN. It also left me wanting the next book, so I could hopefully see their relationship develop, and to see Aphrodite fall in love. I also now want to read the other books in the series.

The only problem I had is with some of the sex (descriptions, acts, etc.). There were times when it was over-the-top and corny, and made me laugh rather than getting me hot. Also, there were times when it was dragged out and so I ended up skipping it in order to keep the story flow going.

All in all though, this was a nice short read that I would recommend to anyone looking for an erotic romance with a good plot.


Jennifer will be awarding a $10 Amazon GC plus a Kindle copy of Platinum Passion (GODS OF LOVE 1) and Aphrodite Calling (GODS OF LOVE 2) to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour, and a $20 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn host.

  2. Thanks for the review! That's kind of upsetting about the cornyness...If a sex scene has me laughing there's usually no hope for it in my book...but I really appreciate the honest review!
