So I read Dark Room and loved it, although not what I expected I really enjoyed it. So I knew what I was getting into with this book. I knew what to expect and this story blew me away and I did not expect what happened. I was on the edge of my seat during this book and it was so tense and unexpected and it took some unexpected turns that I totally did not expect but nevertheless was really good!

From the moment this book started it blew me away the attraction between Hunter and Kennedy was off the charts. It is like the moment they laid eyes on each other there was an instant attraction and lust and man did these authors write it well. It was hot and intense. The lap dance between these two was hot and the car sex was fire.

Kennedy is a lawyer and she’s damn good at it too, she starts going to the club to help catch one of her clients’ husband cheating on her and from there it spirals. It spirals brilliantly and better than I ever thought was possible.

I loved that the Hunter was honest and the only reason he was working at Society X was so he could get through school to become a lawyer, honestly the two of them meeting outside the club for the first time was one of my favourite things.

I love how Kennedy and Hunter’s relationship grew and although she tried to keep it professional but it soon failed as they kept falling back into bed with each other and you could see their relationship going from lust to love and I love how they felt about each other.

I love that hunter is willing to risk his job to help Kennedy with her client and even knowing that there is risks. The difference between this book and the first one is the stakes are so much higher in this book, I was on the edge of my seat during this book I could not put it down. The stakes just kept getting higher and higher. I’m also not going to say why because that will totally spoil the plot and it’s better if you don’t know the thing that’s going to happen. Just know I actually felt fear for these characters like I did not know if some of them was going to survive.

I really loved the plot and the characters and the writing was amazing! I will definitely be reading more from this author duo.

The rules of Society X are simple… break them and you’re out.
Rule #1 – No names
It doesn’t matter if you want to know, it’s forbidden.
Rule #2 – No exchanging numbers
It doesn’t matter if you want to call, it’s forbidden.
Rule #3 – Everything is to remain strictly anonymous.
It doesn’t matter if you want to tell, it’s forbidden.
The Dark Room is the only place you can live out your fantasies and no one will ever know it’s you.
For Parker, what started out as a business transaction has turned into an addiction.
For Mia, it’s been a chance to discover who she truly is.
What happens in the dark will have you begging for more…

So I started this book because I was in the mood for some hot, erotic reading, and I’m sad to say this cover was decieving. It is not as hot and erotic as you think it would be. Quote honestly this book was nothing like I thought it would be or that the cover gives off, so the cover is slightly misleading. Like there’s sex scenes in it but it’s not what you classify as erotica. That being said I still enjoyed this book better than I thought I would, so just be aware the cover slightly misleading.

This follows Mia and Parker both of these people are very closed off at the beginning of this. Mia is just coming out of a relationship and her ex is a dickhead. Parker is very business had through majority of this and the reason he comes to Society X is because if I remember correctly he’s a silent investor or is about to be. (Forgive my bad memory, I read this at the beginning of October. Should teach me to write better notes.)

Parker and Mia are very cute, I love their relationship so they have two sides really the side of them in the dark room where they don’t know it’s each other and then outside the dark room where Parker is friends with Andrew her brother. I love how much you can tell they care about each other but the banter is hilarious between them.

I love that Parker gives Mia a chance by letting him work with her and believing in her abilities is really sweet and I love it.

I must admit a scene that did make me chuckle is Parker telling himself not to be attracted to Mia despite already sleeping with her in the Dark room, it did make chuckle. I mean unknown to him but he’d already had sex with her. The attraction between these two characters were off the charts, Parker’s reaction when he discovers it’s Mia, but oh my god Mia figuring it out because she met the person who made her necklace. I was on the edge of my seat during those scenes.

I loved Parker admitting his feelings for Mia to her brother and then him already knowing. I love it in stories where everyone else already knows how they feel aboute each other than than them.

I really enjoyed this book, it wasn’t as hot as I thought it would be. The scenes in The Dark room was intense and the sex was written really well. I really enjoyed reading these two authors and I did continue to read the other books in this series although each book can be read as a standalone.
