BLOG TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Dark Room: A Society X Novel by Heidi McLaughlin & L.P. Dover

Title: Dark Room: A Society X Novel
Authors: Heidi McLaughlin & L.P. Dover
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 26, 2016 
Cover Design: Sarah Hansen from Okay Creations 
Photographer: Eric David Battershell
The rules of Society X are simple . . . break them and you're out.
Rule #1 - No names

It doesn't matter if you want to know, it's forbidden.
Rule #2 - No exchanging numbers

It doesn't matter if you want to call, it's forbidden.
Rule #3 - Everything is to remain strictly anonymous.

It doesn't matter if you want to tell, it's forbidden.
The Dark Room is the only place you can live out your fantasies and no one will ever know it’s you.
For Parker, what started out as a business transaction has turned into an addiction.
For Mia, it's been a chance to discover who she truly is.
What happens in the dark will have you begging for more . . .

Whoa, this book is all kinds of hotness! I love the fact that this isn't an "insta-love" story, since Parker and Mia have known each other since high school. The chemistry is there between them, even if they don't actually realize yet; or rather, they recognize that the other is attractive, but that's as far as they're willing to admit.

Until one night at Society X.

This story moves along at a good pace, not too fast that you're left feeling confused, nor so slow that you feel like you're walking through molasses. There is the usual side drama of a persistent ex, the not wanting to admit how they feel about each other and not wanting to ruin longstanding friendships.

I love the fact that we get this story from alternating POVs, and the way both Ms. McLaughlin and Ms. Dover write, you're not sure who is writing which character, yet it all flows together so smoothly. Another thing that works for me with this story is the anticipation: we know who's in the Dark Room, and lawd today those scenes are HAWT! But you're also wondering not only if, but when will everything be brought out into the light?

I recommend this book if you're looking for a hot sexy read with relatable characters, especially a hero who isn't a total douchenozzle, and the heroine who is trying to get her life back on track after a disastrous relationship. I'm already anticipating the next book!

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.
Dark Room is hot, provocative, and scintillating. But it's also so much more than only sex. There's a love story at its core - one that's filled with twists and turns. And just when you think you have it all figured out Dover and McLaughlin take you down a different path. Fast paced,emotionally charged, and beyond hot Dark Room will leave you satisfied in all the right ways... Melissa Collins, NYT & USA Today Best Selling author of The Love Series
