Review

Although Viewing Room is part of a series, it can 100% be read as a standalone. After reading this book, I’m kicking myself for not reading the first one. I’ll have to go back and read that ASAP.

Kennedy Vaughn is a partner in a prestigous law firm who has spent the majority of her past few years emerged in work. Now that she is recently divorced, her law partner decides that it’s time for her to let loose and celebrate. What better way then an exclusive club that caters to sexual fantasies ranging from stripping to much much more. Expecting to enjoy a view of some male strippers, Kennedy never expected for one particular guy to fully catch her attention. She can’t drag her eyes away from him. When she learns that he is a stripper at Society X, she’s ready to cut loose and enjoy the show. What she didn’t expect was the instant attraction.

Hunter Miles is one of the top male employees at Society X. One that has always enjoyed the perks of attending to women’s desires. He loves the thrill of the tease. Then Kennedy walked into the club. Drawn to her instantly, he couldn’t stay away from her. When she ends up spending more time at the club, he continues to pursue her. Can he push away his instant lust and focus on his job with all the ladies or will she consume his thoughts until he gets her?

I really had fun with this book. I think that Hunter is the perfect balance to Kennedy. He knows what he wants and he goes after it. He’s restless, which stacks up well against Kennedy’s personality. Their chemistry is insane and their sex senses were HOT. Their first Viewing Room experience had me melting and quite possibly panting. No shame 🙂

Overall, I enjoyed this book. If you are looking for a steamy hot read with a good plot outside of those sexy scenes, this this might be the book for you to pick up and read next. I read it in almost one sitting.

Excerpt

Tomorrow comes awfully fast and the day flies by. Maybe it’s because I’m not exactly thrilled about watching people have sex all by myself. It makes me wonder what kind of things people ask to see when they have requests. All I can say is that I feel like a creeper.

Chris walks into my office and stops when he gets a good look at my face. “Whoa, why are you so red?”

Glancing at the clock, I sigh. “Because in a couple of hours, I have to watch three people have sex in the viewing room.” He knows that I’m doing my own investigative work, but I never told him exactly what I’m doing until now.

He bursts out laughing. “Are you serious? What if it’s not the guy you’re looking for?”

I shrug. “Then I guess I’ll be watching these people have sex.”

“This is classic. I was going to ask you to go to dinner with me, but you’ll be too busy.”

I roll my eyes. “Ha-ha. I’d much rather be getting some dinner. I think I’m just going to stay here until it’s time to go.”

He tries to hide his smile and fails. “Have fun with that. You’ll have to let me know how it went in the morning.” He chuckles the entire time he walks to his office and then out the front door. I’ll never be able to escape him now; he’ll make fun of me for the rest of our lives.

Once everyone leaves, I eat the rest of my turkey sandwich I had left over from lunch while I look over my notes on Chad Bates. Jennifer never texted to tell me if he was going to be at the club or not, so I guess I’ll just have to find out when I get there. I wonder if Hunter’s ever done something like that … had sex with two girls on stage in front of an audience. That’s one of the reasons why I can never get serious about him. How can I when he does that for a living?

My time is running out so I close up the office and head to the club. The parking lot is packed, but I slip on my necklace and get out of the car. I try to ignore the evil looks from everyone standing in line as I walk up to the door. Luckily, Jared is right inside, dressed in his tux and his dark hair perfectly coifed.

           “Good evening,” he says, taking my purse. It’s going to be hard to pin anything on Chad without physical proof. Maybe I can try to sneak in a hidden camera next time. Jared nods for me to follow him and we go through the door that leads to the sex rooms. Placing his hand on the doorknob, he smiles at me. “You ready?”

           I laugh. “I hope so.”

           We walk inside and he points to the purple, velvet couch. It’s the same place my co-workers sat when Hunter and I were on stage. “All you have to do is sit here and watch the show. If for some reason you have to leave, just press that blue button,” he says, pointing to it on the wall. “That way, I’ll know to come in and get you.”

           I nod. “Thanks. I think I got it.”

           He starts toward the door. “Enjoy the show.”
