The rules of Society X are simple . . . break them and you’re out.
It doesn’t matter if you want to know, it’s forbidden.

♥ My Review ♥
Title: Dark Room
Series: Society X
Author: L.P. Dover & Heidi McLaughlin
Genre: Erotic Romance
Rating: 5 ♥‘s
I loved everything about this book! It had the perfect balance of hot, steamy sex scenes, sexual tension, sweet romance, back story, angst and action! There were a few times I groaned, thinking the plot would take a predictable turn… and it ended up surprising me delightfully, instead!
Mia Hudson gave up her hopes and dreams to appease her ex-boyfriend, Zac, now she’s stuck working at her brother’s gym as an instructor, rather than launching her career in the fashion industry. A chance bachelorette party at the exclusive club, Society X, finds Mia getting her sex life back in the saddle in a way she never would have dreamed of and it isn’t long before she’s addicted to the Dark Room and the complete stranger inside of it – on the outside, she’s dodging Zac’s stalking and fighting against her heart for an old flame it never got over…
Parker Ward might have an enviable scorecard when it comes to women, but the only reason why he ever stepped foot into the member’s only sex club, Society X, is because as the CEO of Ward Enterprises, he’s a silent investor. When his friend convinces him to try out his investment, Parker finds himself falling fast for his mysterious Dark Room partner – and shamefully picturing the face of his best friend’s sister whenever he’s with her. Worse, when Parker finds out that Mia’s single again, he starts longing for the off-limits beauty just as much as his anonymous, sexy lover.
The only thing that left me scratching my head was the introduction of the reporter, Peter Fields. I don’t know if his threats to Parker were supposed to be a plot-twist decoy, but it felt more like the authors decided to go a different, better route and completely forgot to eliminate him from the story altogether, which would have been a lot better than his sudden disappearing act with no explanation.
The rest of the fully fleshed out story will have you turning pages at rapid speeds, pacing, biting your nails, fanning yourself and making random outbursts that might cause witnesses to stare at you like you’re crazy. Without giving too much away, just let me say that you will absolutely LOVE how things turn out and won’t feel an ounce of disappointment!
