REVIEWED BY JOANNE

I was looking forward to reading this book – it sounded interesting and along the lines of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Elliot Reid is a journalism student and when she receives an invitation to a party at the highly secret Mesmer Society she jumps at the chance, with a view to infiltrate the club and write an article about what goes on behind those doors. When she gets there, she is surprised to find that she is more intrigued than she thought she would be, and is more interested in exploring and testing her boundaries than writing an article. Her interest is piqued when she meets Luke, who is one of the more aloof members of the club.
I really liked Elliot (or Ellie as she prefers to be known), she went into the party with an open mind, and once she realised what does go on at the club, she decided she wanted to know more. Much to the dismay of her editor Jason (who is also her on/off ex) she decides not to go ahead with the plan to expose the society and its members. I liked how she was open to try new things, however her curiosity nearly leads her into a distressing situation when she stumbles across one of the more ‘experimental’ members of the club.
Luke is very quiet at first, but he is drawn to Ellie and becomes her guide to the Mesmer Society. He introduces her to a new world of experiences, and you can feel their chemistry is electric. I liked how he was really protective of Ellie, and took care of her but I wanted to know more about him. There is a lot more to Luke than meets the eye, but the book does not delve in to him or his background and I would have liked to known what drives him, and what secrets he is carrying.
There are some very erotic situations in the book, and again, I would have liked to have more between Ellie and Luke. I felt as though their relationship was just getting started and then the story ended.
There’s not much more that I can say about the book without giving away any more of the story. I did enjoy reading it, but I wish it was longer.
