"William Kade titillated most women and was rejected by none. He was sex and sin embodied."
I'm not too entirely sure about William in most of this book. He's very dominant, controlling at times, and very possessive of Ivy. William is a powerhouse in this book. He takes no prisoners in business, war or love.
"He had never felt desire like this. Inescapable. Explosive. Hazardous."
They chemi ...more
I first discovered this author with her Chicago Syndicate series. From the first book I was hooked. So when I discovered that she had a new book coming out I didn't even hesitate to read it without even looking at the blurb. All I knew is that this was going to be dark and centered around a sex club. Well color me shocked to discover that there was more to it than that being that it was a historical romance. I was not prepared for that.
Once I got past the idea that this wa ...more
Soraya went back in time where it all started for the Chicago Syndicate. Back to the original club on The Loop of Chicago. Back to the times of speakeasies and all the secrets and taboos hidden behind those closed doors. While I'm not a big historical romance reader, it was hard for me not to become entranced by William and Ivy's story. A story too intriguing and alluring with suspense and all its twists and turns, you can't help but enjoy the ride.
I'm not even sure where to begin with this book. I loved Soraya Naomi's Chicago Syndicate series and knew this one would also be good. I had no idea just how good it would be. While this book is set in 1900s Chicago, the club that William and his friend own eventually becomes Club 7 which you will know of if you've read her Chicago Syndicate series.
If you like your books to keep you in th ...more
I am not a historical romance fan and probably won't become one. Not because of this book, just because it's not my thing. However, I did enjoy this story because I love Soraya's writing and she made I a bit more modern. She has a way with her words th ...more

I also rarely read historical romances but this sounded too intriguing to pass and needles to say it was definitely worth it.
The author did a great job with writing and setting up the mood of 1900s. I also liked how well developed main characters were. Both William and Ivy were strong and stubborn but have undeniable chemistry that is off the charts ...more
