Meet Zoey & Nate in this sexy, emotional stand - alone!

You don’t know when…
You don’t get to choose if…
When it’s time to join…you’ll know.
You might think you want to be a member—but trust me this is one club you don’t want to join. It’s not a place where people go to live out their deepest, darkest sexual desires—there are no handcuffs or blindfolds.
The 27 Club only admits those who die young and tragically. My brother was recently bestowed membership and joined many of our ancestors before him. I know I’m next. This is my destiny, and I was ready to yield.
But then I met Nate. He awakened a sensuality in me that had never been explored, never satisfied. I knew then I could no longer accept my destiny. Nate’s presence controls me. I’m overwhelmed by his touch, his words; my every thought is consumed by desire. I believe he was brought into my life for a reason.
Nate doesn’t believe in destiny.
But I do.
And if there’s a way to cheat it—I must.

Review by: Tatia 

I love and despise reading a book for the first time. I love the course of emotions that a good book can evoke, the push and the pull. I relate it to being on a roller coaster. That feeling you get before the first big drop, of your stomach turning knots over the anticipation of the thrill. But turning the page, getting that much closer to the end, that's the part that I despise. After you turn a page, there is no experiencing it the same way again. You can read the book as many times as you want, but therush of not knowing isn't there. All of this describes perfectly how I felt while reading The 27 Club.

Kim Karr has a way of putting a little bit of suspense in the stories she writes and brings to life. She gives you just enough information to keep you guessing. When I first heard about this book, I honestly had absolutely no idea what to expect. I actually thought there was going to be a paranormal twist to it. So I was surprised to learn that wasn't what the story was about at all. It's a story full of heartbreak, pain, full of questions unanswered, and a romance that was never supposed to happen.

Zoey is a timid girl. She's never been the adventurist, always staying on the straight and narrow path. She knows destiny has plans for her life that she can't change, so she's pretty much waiting for the inevitable to happen.
Nate doesn't believe in destiny. You get to choose your life and what path it goes down. So having the kind of life he did and experiencing certain things, he doesn't do love. He lives his life the way he wants to. There are no romantic relationships involved. So when he finds a woman in his bed, he knows who it is. He just didn't expect to have the feelings for and be attracted to her the way he is. The only problem is, he made a promise to stay far away from her. It's a promise that he intends to keep.

This story was everything I wanted and more. I read it as slowly as possible, not wanting to miss a single detail. I tried to absorb every word written, so that when I did read it again, I'd be able to remember and maybe evoke some of those emotions again. The 27 Club is so different from anything I've ever read. It had a surprise waiting for me around every corner. It's also one of the reasons that I will read anything Kim writes. She puts so much heart in to writing and it shows. So it's to her that I owe thanks for writing what is now my favorite read of 2015.
