I was lucky enough to download this on a promotional offer and got it for free, but would happily have paid for it. Emma has written a clever plot around Laney, who has been single for a year and desperately needs to blow off some steam. She has her eye on four guys in her office, Dylan, Jasper, Miles and Noah, but her best friend Becca surprises her one night and takes her to "The Club." It's a high class, members only establishment where single people, who have been stringently vetted, meet fo ...more

I want my key to Room 237! Sexy, intelligent, and funny.

To say that the club is a hot and sexy read would be nothing short of failing to express to you how fantastically HOT and sexy this book really is. Not only is it a wonderful little piece of erotica, but it is an interesting and intelligently written story. It's unlike any other erotica story I've read. You won't find the typical CEO billionaire in this story, yawn, but what you do find is the mystery of what lies behind Room 237. I think a

Normally, I don't read books in this genre, but when my sister told me I needed to read it, that I did.

I loved this book. It was pretty sexy...woo hoo...and it was funny!

Great book. Loved the whole series.

The writing was good with a smooth flow.
The concept of "The Club" was great. Laney was a great character too. I enjoyed her "personality" and the sarcasm she seemed to bubble with. The deep voice adds to the picture in my mind of Alex - using the description of the stubble and the hairy chest with muscle.. I loved how Laney and Alex hooked up and the use of the blindfold added so much to it. It allowed for the descriptions to take hold and improve the story in the reader's mind. The ending lea

The Club is Emma Payne’s debut novella and the first in the Room 237 Series. I loved Laney’s character, and how the story is told from her witty, first person perspective. Her character evolves on her journey to try and find a man to take care of her needs. Though she starts out as a sarcastic, jaded woman who overanalyzes everything, she’s extremely relatable and likeable. Every woman could relate to her and most have problem been in her position before. For a debut novella, the writing was smo ...more

This is a short fast paced read that is intriguing and keeps you interested. The characters are detailed and interact remarkably well. Laney feels inadequate, has trust issues, over analysis's everything and is sexually frustrated! Can room 237 at the club help resolve her issues and who is the mysterious Alex? Looking forward to more in Laney's journey and from this talented author.

Gifted a copy.

I absolutely loved this book! The main character, Laney, has been in a 'dry' spell for about a year and her best friend Becca feels it is time for them to make some changes. Laney sees herself as the plain Jane, whereas she feels Becca is the pretty one. They decide to apply to become members of a private club in hopes of changing their love lives. This book by Emma Payne, is fun, hot, and unpredictable! I cannot wait for more from this author.

I was hesitant at first but the description intrigued me. What I found in the pages to this opener for this series was a pleasant surprise. Not only full of fun heat and sauciness, but an actual story with characters that engage you. If you're looking for a quick fun read to laze away with on an empty afternoon, I highly recommend this book.

Into a year-long dry spell, Laney is single-single. She asks her best friend Becca if she's busy:

“So do you have any plans tonight? Do you want to see a movie?”

“A girl-date on a Saturday night? No way. That’s a Saturday morning thing. I’m not going to pay $12 for a ticket and $30 for popcorn so I can sit in a movie theater with a bunch of oversexed yet still horny and obnoxious teenagers. All they do is talk over the movie, scream, laugh, or whatever they nee

This was a very hot and sexy read and what I loved the most is I didn't find a hot billionaire in it. Yes the members of The Club had money but it wasn't about their financial statues, and all the members were equals. I thought this was a great and relatively relatable story that was well written. I love the mystery behind room 237 and Alex and I can't wait to explore more in the next book.

I loved this book. From the moment I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Laney is quite the character. She is funny and had me laughing out loud. I am not one to give details about the story so I will leave it at that. I will say I highly recommend this book...Emma did a great job!!! AND I can't wait for the next book.

Laney was a great character that was easy to relate to. This is a great introduction in the scene. The troubles, fear and fantasy she experienced are something everyone has. It is great book! I highly recommend it!

Draws you in and keeps you captivated and definitely wanting more!
This is a gem of a series and a must read! It consists of 3 novellas which I tore through in an evening. the Club is sure to become an erotica reader favorite! The heroine's sarcastic wit is so entertaining and the sex is smoking hot! The story is really interesting and the supporting characters are fabulous! There are a variety of sexual adventures detailed as the H/h experiment with activities they have always been curious about. There is a magical blend of humor, romance, mystery, personal gr ...more

This story is turning out to be very interesting. I have an idea of who Alex is (at least I'm hoping it's a certain someone - but the fact that it could be anyone is what's making me want more!)
Laney, in the beginning especially, has very low self esteem and is very picky with her men and it comes off as a bit annoying to me. Once the story moves along and she's not in her head so much, I find that I am able to stomach her and continue on with the story. The hot sex helped too!!! And I look forw

Great storyline. Laney has lost her mojo after her boyfriend now ex-boyfriend cheated on her. Her best friend Becca decides to help Laney out and they decide to go to The Club. Where your desires can and will be met. Cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
