Nothing satisfies me anymore.

I'd abandoned my dreams of making it big in New York, freed myself from my last relationship, and swallowed my pride by returning to my hometown of Karim, Texas.

A chance to forget about my failures and make a fresh start.

By accepting an invitation to an exclusive establishment known only as The Club, I want to indulge in my forbidden passions.

I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

3.5-75 stars!!

Normally, I steer clear away from anything to do with BDSM but this one caught me. Don't ask why, I'm not even sure myself. I just knew I had to read it is all.

Darkest Desires was a fast, easy read to get into and to finish. Novella's generally make me squirm because they're marginally shorter and therefore need to hook you in, develop progressively faster, and end with a conclusion that is satisfying

My tastes are much more… complicated

"Darkest Desires" is a short book where pleasure is sinful, the mystery is carnal and desires become reality.

Behind me, his chest is firm and broad.
Powerful. Strong. The kind of man who can overtake, overpower, and overwhelm you...

The story of Stella and Mikhail is interesting and has a rapid pace. Stella has very peculiar tastes and although she begins to discover this part of their sexuality, is addictive.
I think my favorite parts are the scenes of the clu

This book will blow you away and leave you wanting more. There is a cliff hanger at the end that left me almost yelling out loud NOOOOO!

Stella's single mom already has her set up on a date with a sexy surgeon from the hospital where she works as a nurse before she even makes it back.

Darkest Desires is a truly spectacular and absolutely stunning story of learning to accept all of who you are. We can’t box up a part of ourselves and not expect to feel like something is missing or incomplete. We are who we are for a reason. No part of who we are is inconsequential or ugly. Each of us was created with a purpose that no one else can fulfill. If we weren’t here our loss would be most painfully felt.

Stella has wanted nothing more than to watch the bright lights and command the ra

This was a unique story with an unforeseen twist that I devoured in one setting. Sometimes a fresh start is needed in order to find where you belong in life. Stella is looking for that fresh start when she returns home but she is surprised when she accidently stumbles upon an invitation to a club that would allow her to unleash her hidden desires. It is at this club that she meets a mysterious man that is everything she craves but is it a permanent solution? Her mother plays matchmaker with a lo ...more

HOLY SMOKING HOT......... I have not read any books by Nicole Blanchard, but I am a fan of The Club series, and this book could be my favorite so far. This is Misha and Stella's story and I was really taken by this book. It was fast paced, well developed, interesting characters, and a few awesome twists. Maybe one of the best endings ever!! This book is screaming for a sequel or w revisit to these characters in one of the upcoming books. Great job, Nicole

What a hot, steamy read packed in a novella!!! I loved how the story didn't beat around the bush so to speak and got right to the good parts!! I was hooked from the first chapter and hated to see it end. The chemistry between Mikhail and Stella was smoking hot! I can't wait to see what happens next for the two of them. Another amazing story from the talented Nicole Blanchard!

This was a quick steamy novella. It was certainly sexy and erotic and the story is full of intrigue and possibility. For me, it was a little short to enable me to really connect with the characters and story, however, this is just the beginning of Stella & Mikahil's story and I look forward to reading more about them in the future.

I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I'm a fan of Nicole Blanchard and I just love when authors all get together for a greater series. I haven't read any of the "The Club" titles other than this one, but it was certainly a fun world that Nicole brought her characters into. If you're a fan of Ms. Blanchard's, you will enjoy this story. And if you're a fan of multi-author collaboration series... this one is proving to be a fun one!

Interesting addition to The Club. I like the story between Stella and Mikhail.
I think the epilogue threw me for a curve. I thought throughout the novella that Mikhail might be her Sir.

This sexy read is filled with intrigue. Stella finds a side of herself she had never explored but who is this stranger who seems to know her so well. MS. Blanchard takes us on a wonderfully erotic journey of self discovery.

I really enjoyed this novella, it is the first of The Club series I have read, but as they are all standalone stories. 5 super sexy stars! This book was super hot, with lots of hot action! The darkest corners hold the most sinful delights.
I was elated, I just wanted MORE… Hehe.

Thanks, Nicole!!
