Wanted a little more from F*ck Club: Con

Posted October 9, 2017 by Berls in Review / 10 Comments

Even though I still really enjoyed F*ck Club: Con, it was missing that something extra that would have made it great.

The characters were good – I liked Con and Shawntelle – but they weren’t as exciting of a couple to watch as Riley and Bree. I think Riley and Bree had that deeper level that made their relationship complex BEYOND sex and, while that had been unexpected, it kind of became my baseline for what I was expecting in the series. So when Con and Shawntelle’s relationship felt like it really was JUST SEX, it was disappointing.

To be fair, it does end up having elements that go way beyond that and the complexities that emerge towards the end really gave it some “oomph!” I just wanted it to be spread throughout like in the first book.

What entertained me most in F*ck Club: Con was seeing the relationship emerging and getting way complex with Shame. It’s still fairly undeveloped and secretive, since we aren’t getting to see Shame’s perspective yet. But I do feel like this series is going to reach it height with Shame (I’m assuming he’s next and last). Can’t wait for that book!

3.5 stars pretty good

  1. I’m sorry this one fell a bit short, Berls. I don’t think I’d even heard of this series but I read a Walker book last month. 😉 Anyway, I hope the next in the series is better.
    Hope you’re having a great week!! {{{BIG HUGS}}}

    • I think this one met my original expectations, which would have been ok if the first book hadn’t surpassed them lol! Really looking forward to the next one though 🙂

  2. I can’t help it – every time I see mention of this series I have a mixed reaction. I roll my eyes (because F*ck Club? Seriously?) but I also laugh because it’s just so in your face. LOL Sorry that this one wasn’t *quite* the full 5 star read but it still sounds like it had a lot going for it. And hopefully that third/final book will be a home run!

    • The title really doesn’t match the series at all, although this one was more of an erotica than the first. But still, yeah, not my favorite title. Good series though!

    • The title kills me because it kind of sets you up for something different than what the books are. But it definitely is snort worthy 🙂 I recommend the series for sure!
