Queen of Clubs: Cora is a fast paced and sensuous erotic romance story that is told in the first person narrative by Cora Meridano, a college student who auditions for a stripper's job at The Queen of Clubs strip club. Cora whets the reader's interest in describing her first day on the job as "Angel," learning the ropes as an exotic dancer: a two song set, pole dancing, lap dances, and a private room session. What she didn't expect was her attraction to Kirk, the club's daytime DJ, who is also attracted to her. Cora finds that the experience of dancing for men has opened a new world for her, she feels that she has made the right decision, feels alive, sheds her inhibitions, and is at peace with herself. On her first night shift, Kirk buys time with Cora in the champagne room, the club's private room, where their mutual attraction develops with flirtatious banter and sexual innuendos, eventually leading up to a sensuous night spent together at Kirk's apartment. Author Katie de Long easily whets the reader's interest with this sassy little erotic romance novella. The author provides just enough of the behind the scenes intriguing practices of the strip club that briefly describes the exotic dancer's routine and the services provided at the strip club, but alas the reader is left wanting more. But not to worry, the author does provide a nifty glossary of strip club terms at the end of the book that will spark the reader's interest in reading the rest of the series.  The main focus of the story is the development of the mutual attraction and romantic / sexual relationship between Cora and Kirk. The development of their relationship flowed seamlessly from the initial attraction at the club to a steamy night of sex at Kirk's apartment. Cora is a sassy girl, who through deciding to dance at the strip club discovered herself. I loved Cora and Kirk's playful banter and mutual attraction, the sparks from their connection led to a very pleasurable night that left me smiling. Queen of Clubs: Cora is an enjoyable and sexy erotic romance story that will leave you wanting more. It is the first book in the Queen of Clubs Series, but can be a stand alone read. Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

As a reader who likes her romances steamy I found this one the perfect fit as it wrapped me in a sensual blanket from the first page to the last. It's an unconventional read though dealing with the empowerment of a woman through acceptance of her body in a world where looks are valued above all else. It's not a straight-forward romance, but Cora's choice in mixing business with pleasure furthers her empowerment as she finds a man who understands her wholeheartedly. Their connection is one of acceptance, non-judgemental, and sweet in the early stages of getting to know one another. It's also teeming with sensuality with the sexual tension growing stronger the more intimate they become amidst lap dances and pieces of Oreo pie. Cora and Kirk are memorable with strong and open-minded beliefs and their compatibility is clear. Cora knew from an early age that her body was something to be on display instead of hidden. Her mother's views were oppressive but Cora remained strong-willed and is now a woman who goes after what she wants, trusting in herself. Kirk sees many gorgeous women every day but has never wanted to be with one outside of the club. He's a genuinely nice guy and I found him utterly delightful. They connect on many levels and he always lets her know she's got the power which made for an insta-love bond that felt believable. Their interactions were sweet and playful but quickly morphed into a steamy encounter that left me parched. The club environment is vividly depicted with the rules made clear and a brief glimpse of the denizens that made everything seem more real. While there's no definitive conclusion here, since this is a serialized set of stories, there's definite joy between Cora and Kirk with their feelings quite clear with hope for their future. I look forward to more sensual stories being told as we dig even deeper into this gritty world as Ms. de Long has whetted my appetite through this tantalizing tale.

1.5 Stars ** Book provided by NetGallery in exchange for an honest review ** Madeline Kahn. A woman who made me laugh as a child as I watched Blazing Saddles with my dad. It made me smile reading that part, and took me back to that point in my life... Other than that, *huff* I'm still confused about this plot... mainly because I can't see one. I get the impression that Cora was shy.... but then I read that she was always trying to get her flesh out on show from a young age ... I'm thinking you can't be that shy. While at college she joins the strip club. Her first day shift she meats the DJ, Kirk, and they have a few stolen looks and smiles. During her first night shift... he buys her time. They do little other than some of what her job entails but I'm baffled about seeing any chemistry between them... NOTHING! stuff like that needs to be felt by the reader. It was my first Katie de Long book.... and unfortunately my last.
