  1. The William S Club is a suspenseful thriller with a great mystery all surrounded by enough romance, sex and action to wrap this book up as one of the better ones I have read this year.Charlotte has had a hard time in life between being there when her mother died and her father is arrested to living in foster care with the press hounding her about her dad, that once she is old enough to be on her own she takes the name Charlotte Burke and tries to never look back The William S club wont allow tha [...]


  2. Disclaimer I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.From the book description I was really looking forward to reading this, unfortunately I think the book fell short of my expectations.I ve said in reviews of other books that I don t need a lead character I like, but it would have been nice to have had one likeable character in here.The female lead was annoying to put it mildly She started off interesting, pissed off at her boss, harbouring a secret, dreading the trip but h [...]


  3. This is an intriguing story of erotic suspense The plot is extensive, with lots of mystery, and it moves at a quick pace I was intrigued by the concept of family secrets and how far people are willing to go to protect those secrets There are a lot of characters in this one and, especially in the beginning, I found it difficult to keep track of them all I also felt character development suffered a bit, mainly because there were so many of them I would have liked to get to know the important chara [...]


  4. The William S Club was not what I expected I was not sure I would even like it But as I continued to read, I found that I could not put it down The need to know what came next kept me reading I love books that I have to read while on the treadmill The plot twist in the end came out of left field, but it did not take away from the book To mention what it was would give away the story, so you will have to read the book to understand what I mean The characters were well fleshed out The story was ri [...]


  5. I really liked the beginning of this book, immediately hooking me into its intrigue and difference As a reviewer as well as an author, I don t always know what a story will be like, given when it s free and not particularly my choice However, I did enjoy this book, with its twists and turns and surprises The writing flowed and the characters good and bad where believabled I loved the idea.Yes, worth reading.

  7. Having received this as a Good Reads giveaway, I have to admit that I got a bit worried after the first few Chapters that Riley Banks might have added too much nutmeg into the spice mix The book seemed to have too much of everything The heroine, Charlotte, a feisty investigative journalist with a troubled childhood, is a 21st century Jane Eyre who has been invited into the employ of not one, but three generations of Mr Rochesters, two of whom are identical twins at the opposite ends of the moral [...]


  8. Adult content but an intriguing international mystery.This well written book is filled with mystery, suspense, and evil scoundrels, all elements that make a very exciting read My only qualm about recommending this novel is the explicit sex scenes that might offend some readers However, the adult content is limited to a few scenes which demonstrate the truly vile nature of the villains Skip over anything that offends because the rest of the story is worth reading When the Harvey Corporation invit [...]

  13. This book is definitely for an adult audience I didn t realize how much sex there would be in this book before reading it I m not a fan of erotica so I felt that the story could have done without some of it But if you took that out of the equation for me it would have been excellent The suspense kept me hooked If you are into that genre then this book will be perfect for you This thriller is action packed with a bit of romance mixed in.The William S Club is full of secrets and has affected Charl [...]

  18. This was a fun read Would I call it a thrillerght mystery, light romance, interestingly different ending I wanted bubblyticipationI m not sure exactly but something from Charlotte s love interest All of the characters we interesting and pretty well developed I did get momentarily distracted learning the Harvey family had flashbacks from Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so many family members with similar or same names The jacket gives a good synopsis of the book My first read from the author, liked [...]


  19. Not fifty shades of grey but I did turn 50 shades of red while reading parts of this book Don t get me wrong, it s not all explicit sex but it does have its fair share It also has lots of action and suspense, in fact so much that at times it was a bit exhausting I do feel the author does a good job of making you love or hate the characters and feel what they are feeling It is an exciting book and once started it s difficult to put down.


  20. Ok i really liked this book I loved the plot and twists Ok the only thing i didnt likei was confused at who i was reading with so many characters i wish the author would have separated the paragraphs by namesDamm good read


  21. I thoroughly enjoyed The William S Club Riley has done a great job to keep the reader s interest with lots of twists and turns Charlotte and Damon really come alive and I couldn t wait to unravel the true story of The William S Club.


  22. Liked this book a lot Sex, violence, mystery, and a group of fascinating, and sometimes twisted characters It was hard to put down.


  23. I am so glad i chose this book for R4R This story is crazy good It deals with crime, sc fi, conspiracy, love, murder, fraud and a couple other things but mainly LIES It all starts with William S Harvey the scientist who builds a time machine and goes back in time to buy property he knows will be cheap thus amassing his great empire Some where down the line an employee Paul Baker follows him down to his basement where the time machine is kept and his whole secret is blown It goes down hill from t [...]


  24. I have to say The William S Club had so much in it I never expected When I started reading I was very excited to be reading a book by a local Tasmanian Author I reached the middle of the book and I started loosing interest For me the sex, lust and violence really put me off reading, However I was very determined finish reading The main story for me was that of Charlotte Burke and Damon It really made me want to read and to know what happened between them If you are a fan of sex, lust and violenc [...]


  25. Book given by author Read For Review R4R Debauchery at its finest Graphic sex with some secrets mixed in Everyone has skeltons rattling in their closets To have a club such as this one has to be a bit demented themselves Thinks to herself one shouldnt judge the debachery of a another winks This read was interesting keeping my interest not just for the sex but the suspense that kept you reading to find out what would happen next The level of sex and violence didnt bother me as much as Im sure it [...]

Okay, it is official I am putting this book in my did not finish pile Rohypnol, rape, murder, and horrible writing characters these are a few of my least favorite things I haven t put a book in this list in well forever I am creating a did not finish shelf just for this book.1st, the characters are 1 dimensional I made it to page 90 and I just had to stop reading The characters fell very flat 2nd, this book reads like a high schooler s wet dream There is the threat of rape, rape, and well lots o [...]


  27. interesting story But yet confusing by the editing because I was lost with the characters jumping from one to the other until I got used to it But the writing, the developping were just great, unfolding step by step When I got questions, I got my answers.




  28. An extremely irritating read Too many murders, too many words and a weak heroine rather large discrepancy between show and tell
