REVIEW: PLAY ROOM is the third installment in the contemporary, adult SOCIETY X erotic, romance series co-authored by Heidi McLaughlin and LP Dover. This is real estate developer Kai Robicheau, and twenty five year old preacher’s daughter/ caterer Alexandria Miller’s story line. Society X is an exclusive sex club where membership has its’ privileges and sometimes the cost is too high. PLAY ROOM can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Kai and Alexandria) PLAY ROOM follows the building relationship between real estate developer Kai Robicheau, and caterer Alexandria Miller. Alex is a twenty five year old virgin with very little sexual experience. When a friend suggests a membership at the exclusive Portland sex club Society X Alex is reluctant to join. But a quick tour, and the enticement of anonymous sexual pleasure has our heroine considering her options for the future. Enter real estate developer Kai Robicheau, a man looking for no-strings attached sexual rendezvous as his time in Portland is limited to the expiry date on his current job. What ensues are the nameless and faceless sexual encounters between Kai and Alexandria; and the building relationship between our leading couple that begins to crumble with the discovery of their mutual Society X clandestine meetings.
The relationship between Kai and Alexandria begins as an anonymous affair: the nameless, faceless meetings at Society X find our couple, individually hoping for something more but something that is never going to happen as per the rules of the exclusive Society X. Meeting one another at a local function finds Alex and Kai pushing aside their evening rendezvous, neither one knowing, the other is their anonymous sexual fling.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including the local Sweet Briar mayor, Pastor Larry, Kai co-workers on the real estate development, as well as a number of friends and family who push our heroine to find the man of her dreams.
The world building focuses on the building relationship between Kai and Alexandria-Society X does not play a major role in the story line but does bring together our leading couple, if only for anonymous sexual encounters.
PLAY ROOM is a sweeter , tamer story line than the previous two installments. There is very little conflict other than the ‘unknown’ but saying that the introduction of Alex’s high school sweetheart felt out of place, and added no anxious or conflicting moments. The premise is engaging but it lacked the excitement of the previous books; the characters are likeable and heartwarming; the romance is seductive and passionate although I question how neither one physically recognized the other once their time together took a more personal turn. The $ex scenes are intimate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
