Our Review:

***ARC received for an honest review***


“Losing my virginity to someone I don’t know isn’t something to be proud of, but I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything else.”


Play Room was very different to the other books in this series, for me, this still had that feeling of the forbidden and erotic but this book had heart and emotion. Two people that had no place even being in Society X, two people that did not belong there and yet that was the place that found them the one thing they desperately wanted. Play Room was just as addictive as its predecessors, I fell in love with these two characters and you cannot help but champion these two along. Sometimes fate works in mysterious ways and it seems fate wasn’t letting these two escape its clutches.

Alex was as inexperienced as they came, sheltered upbringing and then studies and work consuming her ever since. Alex’s virginity was one thing that she was desperate to get rid of, she had given up on finding the right person and when a friend tells her about Society X she finally feels that she has a way of experiencing something she desperately wants…anonymously and with someone who knew what they were doing.


“I like how I feel when I’m around you. I can’t explain it…even when I kiss you, it just feels right.”


Kai was adorable with a capital A. He was the new man in town and his past is a tale of relationships and work never mixing. Kai was a workaholic, brilliant at what he does and takes his job incredibly seriously, he made a difference. Never short for getting an itch scratched he finds it harder in the new town he calls home. When one of his co-workers introduces him to Society X, he fills out the forms to escape, little did he know that one phone call because of those forms would change his life as he knew it.

I loved the interactions between these two, from the get go you could just feel within the actions and the sparse dialogue that this was not just a random one-night as either anticipated. Innocence and experience, complete opposites and yet we all know that opposites attract. The room and rules limiting the dialogue and yet these two told each other everything with their bodies. When fantasy and reality meet though all gloves are off and the sparks definitely fly.


“Marry me…I know I’m supposed to wait for you to ask, but that rule is dumb, I asked your mom_”


This series has been addictive, each book has delivered something different and this one was another great one to add. Kai and Alex will have you swooning in no time whereas the scenes in the room between these two will have you swooning for a totally different reason. The perfect blend of erotica and romance, I loved this one.

Excerpt:

“Hello?”
        “Alexandria, this is Jared from Society X. How are you?”
        I gasp and look around, hoping like hell the woman beside me couldn’t hear. “Yes, hi. I’m doing good. You?” Grabbing my bottle of water, I hurry off the stair climber to a vacant corner across the room.
        “Can’t complain. I’m calling because I have a proposition you might be interested in. You put in your application that you’re open to anything. Is that correct?”
        My cheeks burn like fire. “Yeah, I guess so. What exactly is this proposition?”
        He clears his throat. “I have a client who has particular tastes, or fetishes if you prefer. His partner can’t make it tonight, and I need to fill that spot.”
        Swallowing hard, my heart races. I’m nervous just hearing him talk about it. “What will I have to do?”
        “You, absolutely nothing. All you’ll have to do is lie there on your stomach while your partner massages your backside.”
        “You mean my back?” I ask.
        He clears his throat again. “No, your ass.”
        I don’t know what comes over me, but I burst out laughing. “You’re joking, right?”
        “No, I’m not.”
I hush up quickly. “I honestly didn’t know that was a thing. It’s an interesting concept.”
“Is it something you’d be interested in? You don’t have to be naked. Your upper body will be covered by a curtain so you can wear a shirt. However, below your waist, you’ll need to wear a thong.”
Keeping a straight face and not laughing is going to be the hardest part of the whole thing. How can someone get off by rubbing someone’s ass? “Sure, put me down. What time do I need to be there?” I say it before even really thinking it through.
“Eight o’clock. I’ll see you then,” Jared says.
“All right.”
We hang up, and I head straight for the gym door. There’s no way I can keep something like that a secret from my friends. Once outside, I call Dani.
“What’s up, girl?”
I rush to my car and hop inside. “You will not believe the phone call I just got.”
“What’s going on?”
I haven’t told her about being a member of Society X yet. “I kind of became a member of Society X.”
“Holy shit,” she squeals. “Seriously? Why didn’t you tell me at work today?”
Sighing, I pull out of the parking lot for home. “Honestly, I didn’t think I’d get a request so fast. My contact called me and said he had a proposition for me. And get this, it’s for the play room. The guy wants to massage my ass.”
Dani’s cackle is so loud I have to hold the phone away from my ear. “That’s priceless. Please tell me you said yes.”
I groan. “Unfortunately. What if I burst out laughing while this dude’s squeezing my butt cheeks?”
Dani’s laughing so hard I’m surprised she can even breathe. “I don’t know what to say. This is too funny. What kind of freak gets off on someone’s ass?”
“Obviously, the man I’m about to give my ass to.” I’m starting to think I made a mistake accepting the proposition. At least, I’ll have a good story to tell later. “Wish me luck.”
“Good luck, chickee. I want all the details.”
On the way home, I glance at myself in the mirror. What the hell am I doing?
