Review: The 27 Club by Kim Karr

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. 

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

What if you knew you were going to die?  What would you do? In Zoey’s family they have a “Club” for family members that are cursed! Her grandfather died at 27.  Her mother died at 27, her brother died at 27 and now she is 27. Will she be the next to die young and join the 27 Club? Is this Zoey's destiny, her legacy that cannot avoid it.

When Zoey goes to pack up her brothers’ home and go through his things, she is met with a big surprise.  Nate, her brother’s best friend is living in her brother’s house. Or is he? She only recognized him because of pictures Zack had sent her of the two of them together.  Had her brother lied to her and if so why?  The attraction between Zoey and Nate is explosive and confusing. She had accepted her fate, but Nate calls to a side of her that she had never explored.  He makes her want to fight destiny!  Can she cheat the “27 Club” or will she loose and become a member?  

This is a remarkable book that is like a fine wine, it needs to be savored.  Each page enthralls and entices the reader to continue, to find out more about Zoey and Nate's fate and if it will allow them to beat the “27 Club!
