Genres: Dark Romantic Suspense
Buy on Amazon


My wife’s dead. She killed herself right in front of me and it’s all my fault. My main goal now is to not mix my sexual needs with my emotional needs. Those are damaged forever. I bury my pain in a sex club that provides me an anonymous release. This way I never emotionally cheat on my wife. She was my forever. This is my right now.


You name it I’ve read it. I love my erotic novels. After my husband was murdered, this is the only excitement I get out of my lonely, pathetic, workaholic life. That is, until I met Becca with her invitation to join her for one of my wildest book fantasies. Now I can be whoever I want to be, where no one knows my past and will never be my future.

Wow, just wow. Lauren Runow has written one hell of an erotica book! This was erotica at its best. A true roller coaster ride full of twist and turns, lots of suspense and mystery. And when you think you have everything figured out, you get more twists and turns.


This is definitely one of the hottest books I’ve read. The sex scenes were off the charts and often too hot to handle. Lauren definitely has an amazing ability for writing erotica. She’s also not afraid of pushing the envelope so her stories are always on the edgier side. I was definitely fascinated by the whole sex club scene. I’ve read a few books about a similar theme and this is one of the best.



As the blurb states, both characters had suffered the immense loss of their significant other under tragic circumstances. Kamii, a defense attorney and Preston, a high-end contractor are at a point in their lives where they are not really looking for love because they’ve found it and lost it once, so they just want to keep any future relationships without any strings. I loved Kamii, I could totally identify with her and her struggles. She definitely grew the most as a character through the book. I also loved Preston, he was hot and dark and mysterious. And Becca, I loved Becca, she’s Kamii’s best friend. As with all of Lauren’s books, music is ever present which I love and also the romance part of it is super cute.

This book definitely grabbed my attention since page one. I couldn’t stop reading it,  it’s a fast and fun read for sure. My favorite thing about the book has to be the suspenseful theme, I was definitely not expecting such a thrilling ride, yet is one thing I don’t want to discuss in my review because I don’t want to spoil it for you guys. This book is great, I absolutely recommend it if you’re looking for a fast-paced, scorching hot read. If you are a fan of erotica, this is an absolutely must read!
