Another hot sexy read from Ms. Cox! She always pulls me into a story and I get wrapped up in her characters. She writes Dom/sub stories so well. I have read this series since the start and have loved all the characters and their hang ups and sexy times.

Cole and Bette are no exception to the series. Their story and struggle together is interesting without the petty drama...thank goodness. No misunderstandings or I am leaving you. Just a hot sexy strong Dom who knows himself and his sub and hangs

"The lying sub he shouldn't have. The only sub he wanted."

It's like Christmas every time I get my hands on a new #ClubVolare book. It was back in 2013 that the author first got my attention with #SavageRhythm. At the time I was just addicted to Rockstar Romance, but after reading about that sexy rocker who is also a Dom, she soon had me addicted to Club Volare and BDSM too. And nothing has changed, I keep coming back for more.

Bette's beauty is not just on the outside, but her insecuritie

I really enjoy the Club Volare series. Ms Cox's characters are fully developed with all the angst and doubts that we all have. Here we have Bette Liffey and Spencer Cole. Bette has been raising her half-sister who was more or less dumped on her. She has an ex-husband who is a master manipulator and as crooked as a dog's hind leg. She is also interested in exploring the submissive side of her nature. When her sister is taken and put in foster care, and since she has no support system, her slime b ...more

I love this book. Cole and Bette turned out to be a beautiful couple. Bette was sent in undercover to find something that could be used against Cole. She was trying to get her sister back but she was being blackmailed. But the blackmail had nothing on Spencer Cole, when he dominated you couldn't resist. Both of them had bad experiences prior to meeting and it was hard to trust but once the two of them got together they were heating up the sheets. Cole was after Mark and didn't know he was as clo ...more

Private Dancer by Chloe Cox is her 12th book of the Club Volare series.
This is the story of Cole and Bette. From the very first encounter, sparks fly. It’s like they have known each other for years. Cole and Bette just click right away. They both have exes they would rather forget and scars that cut them deep. Should they take a chance on this whirlwind attraction or is it just about sex. Can Cole be her Dom but not her man? Does he want to?
This book was another visit to our favorite club, Vola
Smoking hot dynamics.

One of the better stories in this series, and I have read a good many of them. From New York to LA and now New Orleans. It's a fun series a definitely worth a look. Each can be read as stand alone stories, previous characters do show up randomly. It's always fun to know everyone's story. Private Dancer had some exciting action, adventure going on that kept me glued to my reader. Well, that and the smoking hot dynamics going on between Cole and Bette. *fanning self* A nicely

I give this book 5 star review because I love a good investigation to a interesting police case with all the information needed to understand it. The love storyline was incredible with the Dom/ sub relationship going on during the misunderstandings and secrets but I guess that’s what makes the story interesting all at the same time. Can’t wait to see what happens with Connor Kelly in his story... and a love like the one you described for Cole and Bette is a love that you only see once

I am not sure how she does. It, but Chloe Cox puts so much emotion on the pages of her books, i just drown in it. Bette and Cole may be my favorite couple of all time, at least until the next Club Volare book comes out. I don’t know how she manages to write such compelling stories, with good plots and so much romance, but i am so glad she does. There is some BDSM in her books but that seems so natural too, and it doesn’t overwhelm the feel of the story. Love this book as much as the others in th ...more

A fun, throw-away read. Scenes were hot but story was packed full of very unlikely coincidences. It would have been more satisfying if Cole knew she was the ex when he first saw her. He could act like he didn't know while gathering more info, going from despising her for lying to understanding her plight to ultimately falling in love with her. I mean come on, he should be an incredible investigator, how could he miss she was the ex! Social media people. It made him seem weak which took the exper ...more

Heart-warming thinking persons' BDSM love story

I have enjoyed all of Chloe Cox's Club Volare stories but Private Dancer may be my new favorite. I loved the chemistry and connection between Bette and Cole and how they each grew as their D/s relationship progressed. Bette's relationship with her sister Lizzie pulled at my heart and added extra depth to her character and the story. It was fun to have the other Club Volare members appear in the book which can easily be read as a stand alone though I

Great book. Some hot sex scenes and enough excitement to keep you on the edge of your seat. I love the Dom in Cole. I also love how he 'got' Bette. They were both coming from similar circumstances - both unwilling to trust. But he understood her and empowered her and that's what love should be about. Bette wasn't someone who could be stepped on either. She had guts. Good chemistry between them You could almost feel it. Definitely in my read again category. ...more

Bette is pressured to go undercover to a BDSM club to get the dirt on Cody. Although Bette is a stripper, trying to make ends meet, she is out of her depth at Club Volare and needs to be rescued by Cody when she accidentally puts herself up for auction. The story presents a background where Cody as a cop is investigating a criminal who trafficks drugs and exploits women. But Chloe Cox is not a very good crime writer. The romance is OK.

So nice to visit Club Volare again

Bette has a serious problem. Can Cold help her? Can she help him? The journey to their HEA is not easy. It involves bad men. Bad men hurting Bette. Trust is hard to earn. Love is even harder. But Cold and Bette are lucky to find each other. We are lucky Chloe Cox let's us tag along for the ride.

I was so excited for this installment of the Club Volare series! I wanted Cole to get his HEA and I knew he would be amazing! Bette deserved this too!! She, unknowingly, pushes his hot button but he pushed through and finds out why he’s so drawn to her. With his help she becomes the person she was meant to be. With her, he becomes the man he never thought he would be. LOVE!

Hot, sexy, domination...Club Volare always delivers

I've read all of Club Volare books and have enjoyed every one. Hot, sexy, protective dominant man and smart, sexy, usually in trouble submissive female. They have a pattern but it works. Cole and Bette find their HEA after a few twists. And as always, the heat is sizzling.

Super story!
A wonderful addition to this terrific series! Bette is a sympathetic character in the beginning, and it's wonderful watching her gain personal strength throughout the book. Cole is the kind of man most women dream about with his combined strength of character and tenderness. All of the characters are terrific and brought to life through Ms. Cox's terrific writing.

This series is soooo good

This series just keeps getting better and better. After so many books you’d think it was monotonous and nothing new to surprise you but not this series. I cannot get enough of it. Cole and Bette were so good together!!!

Really good Dom story.

I love this author and think her books are quite engaging and interesting. I never want to put them down and I certainly don’t want them to end...but each has had an HEA and one has been better than the next!!
Good i guess, started it before, stopped it because of a scene, then read again and through. Was good probably but a little too much drama and not much homelife everday life, (-> real character depiction)

This series gets better and hotter every time. Bette is a strong heroine even if she thinks she's not. Cole is one hot Dom. If you haven't visited Club Volare yet you need to. You won't regret it. ...more

I have an overactive imagination and too much time on my hands, and the result is...well, lots of books! Which is probably better than the alternative. ;)

I love writing steamy and erotic romances, some dark, some light, but always about something that moves me. And, because I'm totally a sucker, love tends to win out. Everyone deserves a happy ending. :)
