The Dark Room is the only place you can live out your fantasies and no one will ever know it's you. For Parker, what started out as a business transaction has turned into an addiction. For Mia, it's been a chance to discover who she truly is. What happens in the dark will have you begging for more..
“Dark Room” is the story of Parker and Mia. They know each other for ages, since he is her brother’s best friend. Mia just got out of a not so happy relationship and has the opportunity, to ‘test’ a club for adult fun (LOL) called “Society X”. She has the need to step out of her ordinary and to risk something for once, for her crush on the older Parker is obviously one-sided. What she doesn’t know is, that Parker, who is a silent investor for Society X, is about to test the so called “Dark Room” of the premises, too…
It was hard for me to decide how to rate this book. The beginning was so über-sexy with all this “anonymous sex between strangers”. I’d definitely rate the first third of “Dark Room” with 5 stars. Then, as the story progressed, it hit one of my biggest pet peeves head on – the best friend’s younger sister is taboo. For me personally, this isn’t logical at all and I honestly hate the fuzz and unnecessary drama the authors create out of it. So, after the thrill of the “Dark Room” was gone, this was a one-of-many, plain and ordinary older brother’s best friend romance. Sigh. So from then on out, this was a 3 star read for me. But since the writing was amazing and I liked the characters very much, I will rate this book with a total of 3,5 stars.
All in all, “Dark Room” is a shaky 3,5-star read and I can recommend it to everyone who likes sweet romance novels with an erotic undertone. My issues with the story were rather personal.
