Praise (Salacious Players’ Club) by Sara Cate

This is the first book in the series which can also be read as a standalone.

He calls me perfect.

His flawless pet.

His good girl.

Broken down and wounded by my emotionally neglectful ex, I wanted someone to tell me I was good enough.

Then, I stumbled into a new job with a boss who brings me to my knees—literally. He has me do things a real secretary would never do.

Emerson Grant tells me I’m more than just good enough.

I’m worthy of his praise.

There are a million reasons why I should stay away. The owner of the Salacious Players’ Club is not just my new boss, he’s twice my age.

And my ex-boyfriend’s father.

With him, I am treasured. I am adored. I am his.

I’m a good girl, but I’m falling for the wrong man.

Emerson Grant knows what he wants—

And he wants me.

So how far will I go to hear his approval?

This book was far better than I expected. It was brilliant with fantastic characters and a good storyline.

Emerson Grant. Holy shit, where do I find one? He was a fantastic character. He’s so alpha male and yet incredibly caring. He ticks every box. Charlotte was a great character as well. They meet under unusual circumstances, Emerson mistaking her for someone else. They just click though, the spark there from the beginning. I loved watching her grow and becoming stronger during the book.

The sexual tension was almost painful to read. I understand their reservations because of Beau, but it just kept building and building. It was a relief when they finally gave in. I loved the dynamic between them and how it developed. Emerson became a little frustrating over not telling his son, but you could also understand it a little. Only a little. Honestly, Beau didn’t deserve an explanation. It wasn’t his place after how he treated her. You can’t help who you fall in love with, right?

It’s safe to say that if you didn’t have a praise kink before this book, you probably will after. Good that man, I really don’t blame Charlotte for falling for him.

The plot was good and developed well. The scenes were smoking hot when they eventually gave in to the tension, but there was more on top of the sex. Family was at the core of it with gaining understanding and acceptance from everyone.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book and would definitely recommend it. The characters were brilliant, the scenes were hot and the storyline was good.

My rating: 5/5*
