SEXY. HOT. FIERCE. NASTY. AMUSING. ROMANTIC. - Author Bethan Cooper
Its intoxicating. I have a few feelings of where its going. But honestly, I have no idea. I’m hooked. - Novel Grounds
I received a ARC in exchanged for an honest review
Initially, I was fascinated with the title and cover of this book. Both elements got me excited and I couldn't wait to get my hands of this one. I loved that the story was different from others I have read lately. A exclusive club where the rich come to indulge in their fantasies sounds great doesn't it?
There were so many secrets surrounding Joely Gilbert's employment at the Viper Rooms. No one could know what really took place at the Viper Rooms but for some reason she grew to trust and love Jace Mason.
I liked Joely, I felt that she was loving, caring and a little bit too trusting sometimes.
Then we have Jace Mason. A lawyer and businessman, he finds love in the Viper Rooms. I loved how much he loved Joely. He was accepting, caring, loving and most of all, sexy as hell. I wished that I could have known more about Jace. I needed a little more fire from him. I felt both characters was just ok. Nothing to make me scream out or fall head over heels with. Don't get me wrong there were heartbreaking moments that made me shed a few tears. I wanted the sex scenes to be a little more steamier and most of all I wanted to feel that pull that draws you instantly to a character.
I was glad that I did not give up on the book because at 60% is where the book turned around for me. Talk about twists and turns, my gosh I loved it!! In the end, I was satisfied with the outcome of the book and wished I had the second book at my fingertips. I can't wait to read the second book.
