The Culmination is the next enthralling masterpiece from the hugely talented Lauren Rowe.

By using a quote from the book I will now attempt to sum up my emotions "Holy what the f**k is happening to me, Batman".
While reading this book I've bawled like a baby, cackled like a hyena, nursed a breaking heart, rejoiced with overwhelming happiness and burnt up hotter than a house on fire! Jonas and Sarah are "hawt" as they whisk you on board their f**ktastic adventure!

Okay, so I have now finished it. I received an ARC from Lauren Rowe herself. WOW. Completely blew me away. I was blind sided by so many different things! This is my favorite book so far and I have said that EVERY time! It has a "real" feel to it. I love the fact that it brings on real life scenarios. When I started reading The Club series, I never in a million years would have predicted it taking control of my entire life! This is/will be my favorite series ever. I hope to one day see this on a ...more

OH SWEET BABY JESUS!!! 5 Amazingly EPIC Stars given because a gazillion wasn't a choice!!!

First of all, let me say thank you to the incredibly talented author Lauren Rowe for giving the ARC of The Culmination for my honest review. This pretty much sums up me receiving the news that I'd be one of the first ones to read book 4 ....

Seriously the most EPIC Love Story I've ever read. Each book got better and better(that's hard considering I absolutely LOVED each and every one individually). The cha

Oh man! words cannot truly describe how I feel about this book. I so missed Jonas and Sarah and this book made the wait so very worth it. I laughed, I cried, I swooned! Such an amazing read. Lauren Rowe just never, ever disappoints. I thought the 3rd book was my fav of the series but I have to say, The Culmination takes the cake!

The Culmination (The Club trilogy #4) by Lauren Rowe
4.5 stars!!

“I thought my life with Sarah was the culmination of human possibility. But now I know there’s an even higher peak – and the idea of losing what I’ve seen scares the living shit out of me.”

This was The Culmination of The Club Series by Lauren Rowe and what a finale for us die hards. As usual this book was full of Lauren Rowe’s witty humour that had me in hysterics at times but this was also perfectly balanced with some intensely

I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

To tell you what I really thought of this book would take so long to read that I could probably publish it myself as a stand alone novel, so therefore, condensed edited version is as follows ...........

"The Culmination" is Book 4 in Lauren's "The Club" Series (& praying to a higher deity) that it won't be the last in this Epic Love Story that is Jonas & Sarah.....
This book is SO FRIKKIN GOOD! What can I say...She has captured me agai

This fourth book in this series is an extended epilogue for Jonas and Sarah's story. So much more happiness! Not only do they get their HEA, I got mine as well.

You know that feeling that you'll be missing out on the goings-on on the lives of your favorite characters once you get to the "The End" part? This book is a perfect example that sometimes the HEA is enough. Who knows what could happen when you've run out of pages, right? This book almost makes me feel like the Faradays are more than fic

Now you may wonder why I say this but it's simple. In my opinion this book should have been last and that's how I read it.

There were times in this book I cried because my heart was breaking. Others times LOL, but at the end it was tears of complete joy. For Jonas and for Josh and their beautiful family.
THE CULMINATION, book 4 in the captivating Club Series, is Rowe's best work to date! It consumes, enthralls, and tears you to pieces. I've quickly become obsessed with this series! Once you get a piece of Jonas and his crazy ways, there is absolutely NO turning back!

Just when you thought it was over after finishing the last book in The Club Trilogy...BAM! Rowe gifts us with a masterpiece called THE CULMINATION, a continuation of Jonas and Sarah's story. And guess what? NO CLIFFYS! Woohoo! Love i

Culmination.noun.the highest or climactic point of something.
The Culmination by Lauren Rowe takes us to that highest and climactic point both literally and figuratively. The best part of it all is the journey she takes us on to get to there. In her unique amazeballs style, Lauren has once more evoked a myriad of emotions as she continues to tell us the epic love story of Jonas and Sarah. From gut wrenching anxiety to weightless euphoria, side splitting laughter to heart lurching sweetness, and

What a wild ride I just wrapped up named Jonas&Sarah. My heart is going through so many emotions having been on this incredible journey with these two. Watching them fall in lust, love..horrific childhoods being brought to the surface. Demons exercised, Major angst, some of the sexiest scenes ever written. I feel like I am part of the Faraday family. I can’t wait to dive into Josh&Kat’s incredible stories. Lauren Rowe is a goddess!!✨
Note: You must read The Club Trilogy before reading this book! It is not a standalone!

***I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review!***

This book was a special treat from the author because those who have read The Club and fell in love with Jonas and Sarah wanted more. This book was definitely more and then some. It was, aptly titled, the culmination of the greatest love story.

This book takes place a couple years after Jonas and Sarah get married. They are hap

The Culmination was definitely a wonderful surprise for me, I was waiting on The Playboy and The Party Girl and didn't even know that we were being graced with another chapter into the Jonas & Sarah world!!!!

We are thrown right back into both of their heads once again, they are now married and expecting. I was a little disappointed when I first started reading after findi

Ci sono LIBRI e "libri", ci sono epiloghi brevi, lunghi e...con Farcitura EXTRA.
La farcitura extra nei libri è paragonabile a quella nei dolci, in alcuni ne esalta il sapore, è paradisiaca e Vi rende felici, in altri...bè in altri rovina tutto, procurandovi anche una leggera nausea.

Well what can I say, this trilogy was one of the best that I ever read it, because is was not like the other same billionaire man chasing the “normal” girl, and this series is perfect from the beginning to end. “The Culmination” is the continuation of the story of sweet Jonas and Sara, if you read the first three and you liked this one you are going to FLOVE IT is FHAWT and sweet and everything, this book turn me on in a way that I thought w

For a trilogy that got turned into a series, this book is amazing!!!
Lauren goes on writing with her own unique style and she simply rocks!
I know.... too many exclamation marks, but I just couldn't put the book down, once I started it.
It is set three years after The Redemption and it is a complete surprise!
When the trilogy ended, we thought that the heroes had reached their final destination and their peaks. We were wrong!!!
There are more hurdles to overcome and a long path to walk until t

Holy jeebus, I hate to say it, but I didn't love this.

But I didn't hate it, either.

I'm all for people trying to better themselves. I really am. I feel no shame in thinking people should try to woo their partners whether they've been together three months or thirty years. For that reason, I love Sarah and Jonas as a couple. They're funny and sweet together. So that hasn't changed.

I also love Josh and his relationship with his brother. I look forward to Josh and Kat's story.

WOW !!! I have loved everyone of the The Club books . I don't have one favorite in this series. They are all my favorites. This installment had my emotions going crazy. With every flip of the page my heart was in my throat.
Jonas is my ultimate book boy friend. Even with all his broken pieces he is still perfect. Do yourself a favor. Read it. Read them all. Lauren Rowe is a wizard with words. She brings you in to every chapter and makes you beg for more.
I'm having a very hard time letting go of

Being back in Jonas's head, LOVED IT‼

This writer pens dialogue amazingly so. She does it better than anyone I've ever read. It's laid out how we really speak to each other with life going on around us at the same time. Some of my favorite scenes are the ones with just the brothers. They show the deep love & support but their still guys! Hilariously funny guys LOL!
I'll definitely miss Sarah and Jonas & their love. So unique compared to what you read, what we read a lot. Some of the books

the culmination is definitely the best one in the series. Jonas, num num num oh la la. ..this is such an amazing story just couldn't get enough..the readers will not be go from sniff sniff laughing pissed off and ready to jump your hubster. .this series is a must read. lauren Rowe outdid herself again with her writing..countdown to book #5 is so far away. .a truly gifted author she is

I am in awe of this book. I laughed a lot and cried a little. Emotions were all over the place. I wish everyone could experience a love like Jonas and Sarah. When you have your one, the one that gives you everything, the one you'd do anything for, and would give everything and do anything for you too that is the true culmination of possibility. Outstanding job Lauren Rowe.

Ich habe dieses Buch auf Seite 166 abgebrochen.
Ich habe den Sinn dieser Fortsetzung überhaupt nicht verstanden und bevor ich mir diese Reihe komplett zerstör, habe ich dieses Buch gar nicht erst beendet.
Schade, dass die Reihe so enden muss, aber vielleicht gefällt euch dieser Teil ja besser als mir..

Before beginning this review - I just want to let you know that you should get The Club Trilogy before reading this. Most of you have probably read it first but for those of you who have not - it will give you a great read before you get into this one. I won't give you any spoilers but the Trilogy is on special around now so you can't lose by beginning at the very start and meeting most of the characters who also appear in The Culmination.

This book, for me, is the best of all - because it carrie

Lauren Rowe does it again!!! I don't even know where to begin...I had stumbled on The Club trilogy by accident and wound up falling in love with Jonas and Sarah. In the first 3 books you learn about the unusual way they met but had fallen in love regardless. Their love is the type of love you an only dream of. The Culmination is obviously a continuation of their story but it is so much more than that. Not even half way in I had already cried. I messaged Lauren to tell her just that and she tells ...more

Between crying like a baby at the sad parts, squirming in my chair at the super hot naughty parts, and laughing so hard I almost peed at some of the sheer brilliant irreverence (if I ever hear someone say "plow the field", in real life, I will probably die laughing), this book was unputdownable!
