My rating: 5 of 5 stars
THE SINNERS CLUB is the first book in Kate Pearce’s newest series of the same name, and I think it was a fantastic start. I absolutely adored her House of Pleasures series, so Kate is one of my must read authors for historical erotic romance. I cannot stress enough what a great read I found this to be, and I am impatient for the next book to be out already.
Jack Lennox has been named the new Earl of Storr after coming into his inheritance from his father. Before he can legally take his place as the new Earl, he goes undercover as his own personal secretary to investigate what has been going on at Pinchbeck Hall since the previous Earl was laid to rest. He is surprised to find the pregnant widow of the previous Earl and her brother in residence, and is even further surprised by his own intense attraction to them both. Upon meeting the siblings, Jack knows that with Simon and Mary Picoult nothing is as it seems. He is determined to figure out by any means necessary what game the two of them are playing… even if that means he has to seduce them both.
The mystery and intrigue go so deep in this one that I promise you will never be able to anticipate what is going to come next! I swear just when I started to think that I had things all figured out, the story took an unexpected turn. I had plenty of moments where I realized that nothing was as it seemed, but when I thought back the hints were all there. I must also admit that The Sinners Club was seriously one sexually decadent read! I do have to caution that it isn't going to be for your typical historical reader, as it does have m/m and ménage elements as well as an orgy. But like I said... it was quite the steamy read with tons of sexual excess, but not in such a way that it detracted from the story at all. Honestly, I think that the heat and chemistry between the characters and the very complicated plot definitely made this one worthy of reading. I can't wait to read the next book, and I’m already speculating that we may perhaps find out what is going on with this Mr. Keyes?
