You don’t know when…
You don’t get to choose if…
When it’s time to join…you’ll know.
You might think you want to be a member—but trust me this is one club you don’t want to join. It’s not a place where people go to live out their deepest, darkest sexual desires—there are no handcuffs or blindfolds.
The 27 Club only admits those who die young and tragically. My brother was recently bestowed membership and joined many of our ancestors before him. I know I’m next. This is my destiny, and I was ready to yield.
But then I met Nate. He awakened a sensuality in me that had never been explored, never satisfied. I knew then I could no longer accept my destiny. Nate’s presence controls me. I’m overwhelmed by his touch, his words; my every thought is consumed by desire. I believe he was brought into my life for a reason.
Nate doesn’t believe in destiny.
But I do.
And if there’s a way to cheat it—I must.
The 27 Club was a delightful surprise to read. I am not sure why, since I've read the Connection series by Kim and quite frankly enjoyed them. I do have to be honest, this book did take me longer than usual. It moves at a slower pace than what I am used to.
All starts the night Zach Flower dies. Within weeks of his death, Zoey Flowers moves to Miami. There she meets Nate, Zach's best friend. From the moment she meets Nate, Zoey begins to learns secrets her brother kept from her. Lies he told her. Which doesn't really help her since she is already superstitious. She believes death will come knocking soon and also will die at young age. I don't blame her, since her mom, grandfather and other members of her family, also died at the age of 27.
I was not expecting the story to turn out the way it did. There are many things that Zoey uncovers. But most of all, she finds a man that is willing to fight for her. Sure he wasn't all gentle, but he sure was sexy.
All in all this was a great read. I was happy to read the epilogue and loved how it all tied down.
