THE CLUB TRILOGY (The Club, The Reclamation, and The Redemption bundle):
USA Today and Amazon #1 Bestseller in both New Adult and Romantic Suspense, The Club Trilogy, has taken the world of erotic suspense by storm with its unique blend of panty-melting sensuality, thrilling suspense, laugh-out-loud humor, intense character development and shocking plot twists. Now readers can devour all three full-length books of the epic love story of Jonas and Sarah (The Club, The Reclamation, and The Redemption) in one heart-racing collection, including a brand new bonus scene written especially for the trilogy bundle.
In The Club Trilogy, when wealthy playboy Jonas Faraday receives an anonymous note from Sarah Cruz, a law student working part-time processing online applications for an exclusive club, and he becomes obsessed with hunting her down and giving her the satisfaction she claims has always eluded her. Thus begins a sweeping tale of obsession, passion, desperation, and ultimately, redemption. Find out why scores of readers call The Club Trilogy “my favorite trilogy ever” and “the greatest love story I’ve ever read”--and why international publishers have clamored to translate and publish upcoming editions in Italian, German, French, Spanish, and more.
“There’s never been a love like ours and there never will be again… Our love is so pure and true, we’re the amazement of the gods.”
*The Club Trilogy tells a complete story without a cliff-hanger. Look for the continuation of Jonas and Sarah’s story in The Culmination (The Club #4), a complete story to be read after the trilogy, coming out August 24, 2015.
**Readers 18+ due to extremely graphic language and adult situations.

The Club

We first meet Jonas, while he is filling out his application for “The Club”. This is not your average sex club, think more along the lines of ‘High profile women who are perfectly matched to your personality and your needs’. The idea is that no matter where you are in the world, you can check into your Club issued phone and a woman will meet you at the place of your choosing. Jonas is a self proclaimed “cocky-bastard-asshole-son-of-a-bitch-motherfucker”. Thanks to a bad experience with a woman faking her orgasm, he has made it his mission to please women. He calls it “Sexcellence”. At the end of his application, he decides to write a letter to his “Beautiful Intake Agent” who happens to be the amazing Sarah Cruz. The things that he tells her, will literally melt your panties right off your body and leave you with your jaw laying on the floor.

Sarah writes Jonas, back and this starts a back and forth between the two. Sarah, tells Jonas that she has never had an orgasm. He can not fathom this! So, she becomes his Mount Everest. Jonas, will stop at nothing to find his beautiful intake agent. Once they finally meet… let’s just say its explosive!!! Their sexual Chemistry is THROUGH THE ROOF!!! Lauren Rowe, knows how to write an amazing sex scene! She also has fantastic taste in music! You could make a playlist of all the music and listen to it on loop. Its that awesome! Another thing Mrs. Rowe did, she made me love Plato. I have a slight obsession with him now. See, Plato is Jonas’ homeboy, he lives his life by Plato’s philosophies. When Jonas would explain one of Plato’s allegories, I would sit staring at my kindle like “OMG! I get it. WOW! I never looked at life that way.” and I absolutely LOVED IT! Plato is now my homeboy too!

They start to realize that The Club may not be what it seems. Sarah, the go getter that she is, does a little digging and realizes that they were right. They go on a fantastic trip (I’m not telling you where because it’s AWESOME!) their relationship hits its highest peak thus far! They are on Cloud 9 when they return home. Once they get to Sarah’s apartment, they realize its been broken into *gasps* This is where the 1st book leaves you. To be continued…

 

The Reclamation 

This book picks up right where we left off. Jonas and Sarah, have went to pick up Kat, (her apartment was also broken into and the only thing taken was her laptop) and Jonas has called his twin brother Josh, to come help them figure out what is going on. They start to formulate a plan to take the Club down. These four together are hilarious! Even though all of this “stuff” is going on they will make you laugh with their ridiculousness! We get to see the spark between Josh and Kat in this book. The Playboy and Party Girl with a hyphen, have explosive chemistry! You also get to see how Josh and Jonas even each other out. Josh is the calm to Jonas’ storm. Sarah says it best “It’s like Josh is some kind of gorilla-whisperer or something” lol, he truly is!

Jonas and Sarah’s relationship grows so much in this book. We see some of the dark and painful past that Jonas has had to endure and we also see their relationship tested. What I love about them, as a couple, is that they do not let stupid or big things come in between them. They are strong in their foundation. There is a moment when they are tested and Sarah says something so beautiful and deep to Jonas “Secrets create spaces within a relationship, Jonas-dark spaces. When one person keeps secrets, the other person fills in the dark spaces with their fears and insecurities” That is very, very true. Listen to your magnificent Sarah, Jonas, because she is a keeper!

 

Their love grows so deep in this one. Then a tragedy happens and Jonas worls falls apart… and all I could do was hold my breath and read through the tears until book 3…..

 

The Redemption

This was an awesome and epic finale for sweet Jonas and Sarah. Lauren Rowe owns my heart. She is an amazing writer who will sweep you off your feet and plant you into this beautiful world she has created. I couldn’t have asked for a better finale, but hopefully it’s not the end. I know we will get Josh and Kat’s story next and I’m hoping and praying to the Olympic gods that we get a allot of Jonas and Sarah in there…. maybe even another book about just them. Well…. really, I could never get tired of reading this epic love story, so as long as you want to write about them, I will be patiently waiting to read them!

I love that throughout this trilogy there isn’t any unnecessary DRAMA! It was so refreshing. It seems like this genre is all about endless drama that has you screaming at your Kindle “WHY???” but there wasn’t any. They fully trusted each other and just believed in their love. They knew the other loved them and had their back. There was drama that had you guessing what was happening, but not at the expense of main characters.

In this book we finally get to see the plan that will take down The Club. It was very exciting to read and we also get to meet a new character Henn. I heart Henn so much!!! He is the master hacker who has been Josh’s right hand man from the beginning. Josh and Kat, are flirtatious and I NEED to know what happens in Vegas between them!

Jonas Faraday is one of my favorite book boyfriends… EVER! The things that he says……sweet baby Jesus. In this book he left me on top of Mount Olympus in a melted swooning pile right next to Sarah! He is so romantic and a true lover of “Valentine’s Day bullshit”. Sarah is strong, smart, wise, beautiful and genuinely just an amazing person. She is probably my favorite h ever!!!!! I am jealous of her. Of her life, personality, and hunky monkey, lol.

Ok, so obviously I could go on and on but I will end this by saying I am a true fan of Lauren Rowe and I will read this trilogy over and over again. I had a serious book hangover for about a week and a half after I read this trilogy. I will always feel a special connection to Jonas and Sarah! Jonas says it best “She’s my savior. She’s my religion. She’s my redemption. There’s never been a love like ours. And there never will be again. Our love is the joy of the good, the wonder of the wise, the amazement of the gods-the culmination of human possibility.
