Now, instead of spending her birthday in Liam-heaven, she learns that she will be forced to take part in The Chamber, a lavish sex club for the world’s richest and most powerful men. She finds early on that she will not suffer her sentence alone. With the budding sisterhood of the six other women taken at the same time, along with an unexpected ally, Vivian will discover an inner strength and love that she never knew existed.
Wow!! This story stunned me by altering my perception as the scenes progressed. The plot is intense and dark and pushes the limit of what I normally can handle in a story. This wasn’t by any sense of the imagination a typical erotic tale. The majority of the story takes place where the kidnapped girls are held captive in a sex club and are forced to satisfy 5 men, 5 days a week. While this is a chilling to imagine, the strength of the characters, particularly Vivian, compelled me to continue reading and I couldn’t book down the book. The author amazingly weaves a bit of romance into an extraordinary situation. As a reader I was clinging to the romantic elements as much as Vivian was desperate to hold onto her love.
** Spoiler Alert ** (It’s a romance novel – an HEA is expected)
After the girls are released – the book gets intriguing. Vivian champions the concept of embracing the bad things in life and continuing on.
