Her name was Mia. Rich girl, law school drop-out, smart, crazy sexy, and in over her head with me from the moment I rescued her on the side of a South Florida road.
She's going to require some delicate handling on my part. Maybe that's what challenges me about her. Her innocence.
She'll play my games. They all do. I train them, and they love what I give back. I need them, too, but only the sex; it keeps the nightmares away. I'm addicted to the game, to the action, to the control.
I'm good at what I do. I own a piece of Command Performance, one of South Beach's hottest sex clubs.
But no one owns a piece of me.
Not even Mia. Not yet.

The Club: Ethan, Book 1 of The Club Series, Jenna Elliot Genre: Erotic romance. Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Well, I started with book two – Ace’s story, and loved it, then saw that book one was available. I’m actually glad I read them that way round because this one didn’t have anywhere near the impact Ace had for me, and if I’d read this first I may not have continued... Mia, poor little rich girl...her parents have given her everything material but nothing of themselves, no personal attention, no real love, no emotional support so in a way she’s ripe for someone to come along who does that for her. Ethan is attracted to her, and she thinks his attention is more than it is, he doesn’t do personal, uses sex as a coping device for his own problems, so she needs to accept that though it’s sex like she’s never had and feels emotional, it’s purely physical...or is it? Is Ethan just kidding himself that Mia is like any other of his pets? If that’s so why can’t he just stick to his usual rules, why let her in areas Pets don’t go? Though I loved what there was of the emotional side of this, and really felt for both of them with their traumatic pasts I wasn’t convinced that their relationship was love. Somehow although Ace was very real feeling to me this one wasn’t. Maybe because the main part of the story covers such a short timespan, its really only their first meeting, the club visit and a bit past that, and I couldn’t see love developing from the few interactions they had – Lust yes, but love? No. I did like that part where Mia was minding the office for a couple of days, and did exactly what Ethan said not to – that made me laugh. I could just imagine the scene on his return, and it made sense the reasoning she put behind her actions – there was an element of revenge, but mainly she wanted him kept bust. Loved what we saw of Dirty and Dirtier too. The drama part was extended in just the way I love, but because I couldn’t feel them as a couple, as having a real future, genuinely in love then the impact wasn’t great for me. I felt I knew Mia reasonably well but needed to know more of Ethan, to know the man behind the facade, but I felt I just got the shallow surface view when I’m sure there’s more to him from the way his friends support and respect him. Its a hot and fun read, but a bit light on the emotion I need to really believe in a romance, and that's why its a three from me – a good read, but just not a great one. I’d be happy to read more though from the series, as the writing style is excellent and i so loved Ace book. Stars: Three. ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers.
Hot, hot, hot! This sexy read will be sure to steam up your e-reader. Ethan has suffered tragedy and finds a release through sex, which he must control. When he meets Mia on the side of the road he wants to introduce her to his kinky world. Very sexy, the story and characters are wonderful, can’t wait for the next in the series. Loved it!
