Rule #2…Respect the ladies.
Conner Steele has nothing but respect for ladies. He absolutely adores them and takes more than a little bit of pride in his job—or rather, his former job.
After a run-in with a cop, former male escort Con, along with his brother Riley and best friend Shame, decided it might just be best to hang up their…hats and retire from the business of being paid to pleasure.
After all, they have a profitable business going with their new pub. No reason to ruin a good thing and Con is more than happy to keep pleasing the ladies—just…no longer as a job. Finding a date or company for the night has never been an issue for him, either. He’s been told more than once that he can charm a tiger out of its stripes. But lately a new hire at the bar is turning the tables on him—she is the one charming him, twisting him up into knots and getting him so worked up, he can barely see straight.
In his rather expert opinion, Shawntelle Callahan is nothing less than a queen.
And she’s a queen on a mission, too. Even as tangled up as he is over her, he can see that. First she tries to coax him out of retirement for one last engagement. When that doesn’t work, she sets out to drive him crazy. After finally admitting that she’s a writer who’s looking to do a story on male escorts, Con realizes it will be best to just stay away from Shawntelle. Sure, she says she’s just looking for some hands-on information but he knows there’s more to it than that. There are secrets in her eyes, barely hidden lies and doubt.
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!
Berls wanted a little more for F*ck Club: Con, but she still gives it 3.5/5 stars! Click To Tweet
