I’ve decided to review all the books in the Club Floggers series as a series rather than writing an individual review for each book. My reason for this is that I had similar feelings toward each story and they basically rated the same – 3 stars across the series. They are a collection of short stories, some a bit longer than others, with overlapping characters and set in the same club.
So what did I think?
I basically read these stories back to back since they were so short. Overall I enjoyed them but they were a little too short for my liking. I felt that there just wasn’t enough time to understand the characters and I really wanted to see more than just the sex, to know more about the men and what drove them and their desires. I felt it just skimmed the surface of the dominant and submissive nature.
I started the first book and had some doubts. Nash, the Dom, seemed to be a total asshole and I had no interest in seeing him win Paul over. However, as the story progressed he sort of grew on me. Throughout the series I struggled to become invested in the relationships (due to the short story length?) and so decided to just read the stories for what they were without trying to look for anything too deep or to question behaviours too much.
What I did enjoy was how many of the characters, both submissive and dominant, were from rock bands. I really like books with musicians! In fact I would have liked to have seen more of the rock star world beyond the bedroom or confines of Club Floggers.
These are stories definitely suited to someone who is looking for a quick read and to just dip a toe into a world of BDSM.
Now here’s the part I wasn’t too sure whether to include or not – the mention of price/value for money (which I don’t usually get into). But I have decided to mention it as I know some people buy books on my recommendation and I think should be fully informed. I got the first book free from ARE – which is fabulous so thanks to the publisher and the author! – and then bought the rest of the series. I am one of those readers with a compulsion to complete a series no matter what! All up, including the free book, I spent $12.94 on the books. They were priced at $1.99 and $2.99 each, and although the website had the word count for each story I didn’t pay it too much attention. So although I enjoyed reading the books, I don’t think the price for a 20/30 page book is good value. But I guess you can make up your own mind!
