Overview

For fans of New York Times bestselling authors E. L. James, Sylvia Day, and J. Kenner comes the first part of international bestselling author Marina Anderson's erotic series The Dining Club.

Part One: Desire

Young, ambitious theatre director Grace has no time for distractions, but she just cannot resist enigmatic city financier, David. Alluring, charismatic and an incredible lover - David never lets Grace get too close. So when he invites her to a weekend at his private club, Grace is thrilled.

Arriving at the secluded location, and excited by her nerves, David reveals the truth behind the Dining Club: a place where guests are taught to open their minds, and their bodies to erotic challenges. If she passes the tests, she is promised ecstasy beyond her wildest fantasies. If she fails, she's forbidden to ever set foot in the exclusive club again. But even as David's seductive commands make Grace feel more daring than ever before, she begins to fear for their future. What if she fails one of the Club's tantalizing trials? Will David still want her or will she lose him forever?

Desire: The Dining Club: Part One 3.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

Well i was hooked so i read them all. Good story line. A lot of BDSM. However, spending another$2 after 20-25 pages each and every time is utter B.S. I wouldnt have spent $16 for 1 book. I wont buy like this again. Each book being 20-25 pages means the entire story is only 160-200. And for $16!! Rip off!!!

3 out of 5 for this reader folks! Okay I am intrigued. Desire by Marina Anderson is the first short story of a series about a man named David who wishes to bring his girlfriend Grace to a special club (called the Dining Club), which is a "discover your sexual fantasies" to see if she will entertain a rather darker side of their sexual relationship. David is depicted as a DOM and has laid the cards out on the table for Grace finally after 6 months of sleeping with her, that he needs more sexually if this relationship has a chance to survive. Believing that Grace has undiscovered sexual needs, David reveals the details of The Dining club and requests that Grace attempt this adventure. David kind of came across a little creepy to me, but in the short amount on time that we are given in this first part, I will give him a chance as he does really seem to care for Grace and really wants this work. Grace on the other hand comes across sincere and I really hope that David takes care with her. Guess we'll find out in the second part called BOUND. HAPPY READING! :)

I'll give this book the benefit of doubt because it's the first part. There wasn't much to explain what's going on, only hints as to what will happen. From what I did read in part I I am intrigued enough to continue on with the series.  We meet our two (?) main characters Grace and David. They have been dating for six months and Grace is starting to have strong feelings for David. How David feels we aren't exactly 100 percent sure but we know he's serious about her since he wants to bring her to the Dinning Room club.  I'm not sure what the point of Amber is except for I see her being a nuisance along the way. We will have to see. Look for my next review of Bound as soon as I finish it.  I'm going to be honest I try to avoid the small part stories because I get so frustrated due to the fact they could be written into one book and save the hassle of waiting a few weeks to publish each individual part. I'm not a huge fan of being left to wonder whats going to happen. Cliff hangers and I have a love/hate relationship and each one of these little parts is basically a cliff hanger.

Being that the description of this book makes reference to authors like E.L. James and Sylvia Day, I almost didn’t want to touch this one. There aren’t many things that’ll turn me off from a book as much as taking two “huge” names in a given genre, and throwing it as an attention grabber in a description. Despite this, I was intrigued by the part of the description that was actually about the book, and I’m glad I did. From reading enough excerpts of Fifty Shades, I’m confident in saying that this book is not comparable to that series. Anderson has a very well written and well thought out story to it. There’s not much to this part of the full story, but the author was able to get a good start to the development of the characters and what the overall story will be. The main female character, Grace, is set up nicely and I liked that she’s a strong woman, but has a softer side that plays well with the male lead, David. I have a feeling that as I read more parts of The Dining Club series that these characters will only become more complex, as will the story. My only real complaint about this is simple: It’s part one of (so far I can see) eight. It’s not a story one or book one. It’s just part one, and it ends with you wanting more. This isn’t normally an issue for me, as for the most part this does wrap up the conflict of this section, but it also cuts off at a point just before more action will start. I’ll probably be reading part two in the next day or so because of the urge to keep going, but I have a feeling that I’d rather have had this as one complete collection instead of as a serial novel.

Grace has fallen for David and she thinks everything is going good...David on the other hand not so much. There is a part of David that Grace doesn't know about. David thinks it's time to show her....The Dining Club, a place to show her all the desire and passion that he knows and wants to share with her. But if she fails... I thought the plot and characters where good and well developed for the short story it was. Although I didn't really agree with David's ideals about her failing and that was the only way for them to be together. Hopefully the story gets better and explains why David feels that way and why he needs it.
