Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands, #1)

Club Shadowlands is not exactly what I expected. However, after I have finished reading, I am convinced the author’s inspiration was The Rocky Horror Picture Show. There is nothing that anyone can say to dissuade me.

Jessica is an uptight accountant. She has car trouble during a storm and is stranded in the rain.

She then comes upon an old house.

When she knocks on the door a slightly creepy and somewhat physically odd man opens the door. (Riff Raff anyone?)

She is allowed inside to take shelter from the storm. This is where she meets Master Z. Master Z is can read people’s emotions and thus knows exactly what a woman wants. He is very much the alpha male. However, he is not a scary screamer, a controller, or a manipulator. He respects women and is quite yummy.

Master Z calls Jessica on her stuffiness and issues a challenge to step into the sex club. Once she does, she is immediately shocked.

She isn’t quite used to the scene before her.  People are dancing very suggestively

and there are rooms where “scenes” are being played out.

Jessica tries to understand what is going on. She convinces herself that her curiosity is nothing but desire for new experiences and learning.

I won’t give away anymore of the details except to say by the end of the book Jessica is a little less frumpy accountant and a little more…well…..

This book is simply a fun little book of smut, a juicy little lemon cart. There is no real plot, other than a woman trying out something new and finding a part of herself. There is no real angst, no psycho ex-boyfriends, or death threats. It is a fun read if you don’t take it too seriously. So my suggestion is get comfy, read, and don’t forget to do the Time Warp.

Hard to Handle is a sweet romance that you will love.  The writing is very intelligent.  It is one of the few romance novels I have read that does not go into graphic detail.  There is little to no umm….questionable language.  Now, don’t get me wrong I love a foul mouth vixen just as much as the next girl and there is always something to be said for a man that talks dirty in the bedroom.  But this novel is great without it.

Sadie is a tough woman.  She is career driven and doesn’t really want a relationship after her fiancee cheated on her with her very own sister.  Enter Aiden Downey.  He is nursing a broken heart due to a failed marriage and ill parent.

There is a lot of waffling on Sadie’s part.  She can’t make up her mind if she can trust Aiden or not.  Which gets a little annoying but it is done beautifully.  I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
