Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Crimson Elite, the most exclusive sex club in the world. Enter at your own risk, and always remember our number-one rule: You must never speak of Crimson Elite - the punishment is severe. 

If God created the perfect man he would closely resemble Creed, on the outside that is. He’s as cavalier as they come. Unconcerned. Cold. Dismissive. I wonder if he has any feelings at all. And when his lips touch mine, everything goes black. He takes me into his world, and it’s the most magical thing I’ve ever experienced. And I’m sucked in time and time again. Like a moth to the flame, I am ready to be set alight. 

Elicea is a firecracker. She has piqued my interest, and no one piques my interest anymore. Beautiful women are what I do - it’s my work. Not one of them has managed to get their claws into me the way she does. It’s as if she’s seeing my icy heart and trying to melt it, set it alight with each touch of her sinful lips. But that can’t work, it won’t work. Not in my world. 

All books in the series can be listened to as stand-alone stories.

Contains mature themes.

Great start to a new series

Smith has done a great job in developing Creed as a very dark and interesting character. This put together with Teddy Hamilton has created magic! 😍😍😍
Can’t wait for the next instalments featuring the other Crimson Elite crew!

BLEW ME AWAY

I have tried one of T. L. Smith's books before.. but sadly it didn't wow me. However, recently.. okay okay - for a long time now, I've been a wee bit of a stalker when it comes to all things narrated by Teddy Hamilton (deep breath in.. and sigh). So, with the cover pic, the blurb and Teddy, I was hoping for greatness.. and thankfully that's exactly what I got. It's a great start to this new series centered around four wealthy friends who own a VERY secret and VERY elite Sex Club. Each of the men have their separate roles within the Club.. and Creed's job is getting new women. So, when a beautiful feisty brunette stirs his interest and suddenly needs a job, well, what else can he do but offer her one.

Her new bartending job is absolutely perfect for sassy Elicea.. but Creed's smouldering stares, droolworthy good looks, protective glares and possessive actions are distracting her.. and are also all kind of dangerous. He's a man of few words, he's oh so sexy but broody too, he's intense and closed-off to all.. and every sizzling smouldering look between them melts her panties and tests her willpower. Both of them try to ignore their explosive chemistry.. but how long can that last? and what dramatic twist could happen to bring them together? Well sorry folks but I'm not telling.

Right from the start I just knew this was going to be an awesome listen. I got that 'fluttery' excited feeling early on.. you know the one.. and this love story certainly lived up to my initial feeling. I was gripped with Creed and Elicea's sizzling interactions, intrigued by the Crimson Elite's alpha owners, proud of Elicea's strength of character as she rolled with the punches, had a backbone and stood her ground, equally proud of Creed's character growth and I was blown away with the whole package.

Worth a credit? Yes definitely - it's not one to be missed. There's interesting characters, a slow-burn high tension romance, sexy times, drama and a hiccup or two along the way. The dual POV narration was wonderfully done by Mackenzie and Teddy who brought all the delicious feels to life. Creed and Elicea's love story did reach its happy place.. but I'm sure we'll be hearing more about them in cameo appearances in future books as each of the men find love.

I could not get in to it. Female narrator was so-so

The story had potential but I could not get into the characters at all. The hero’s attraction was not felt and seamed forced by the author. I did not care for the female narrator but loved loved and will always love teddy hamilton, he one of my top 5 for sure. I will be returning this book for the character development was weak and not engaging enough to capture my attention enough to finish . Not even Teddy Hamilton could save it, though his voice melts me like butter

Are these people stupid?

SPOILERS!


These two are ridiculous. They have great sex, never date, don’t even have conversations, she gets pregnant and then they’re in love? He never explained why he wanted her to work in the sex part of the club. He always sleeps with her and leaves. And he stares at her so much, it’s just creepy. They don’t even know each other, yet he buys her a house that she had NO say in, not to mention all the baby stuff that she didn’t pick out. These two seem immature and don’t seem to know what love actually is!

Not impressed...

I totally got this book because of Teddy and now I am so disappointed. This book was all over place. The heroine was sooo weak. I just couldn’t figure out what this book was really about. A sex club, a bartender, a hit man, and sex...The reviews for this one are very misleading. I will not follow the series.

Teddy is beautifully flawed here!!

I'm trying to keep my review short. First I missed that this was a series with a cliffhanger but I love the book regardless!! Mackenzie Cartwright is being partnered with some really great male narrators and is great herself. I really liked her narration too!!
This story is like taking a bite of the forbidden fruit but still loving it.
Teddy knows how to do dark, sexy and bad on top of sounding delectable. There's some violence, sex, angst and an unexpected storyline with a few twists and turns and a not so predictable love story. Teddy was awesome as Creed but he's such a favorite of mine so maybe I am a little biased. 😉 Loved it and really looking forward to the next book. Great story by T.L. Smith.

Dark

This was a very, very dark story. I wasn't expecting it. The blurb from the publisher says it takes place in a sex club, but very little of this takes place there. It's not about people in a sex club. It's more like a mob story. Not at all what I expected. It's not my cup of tea, I won't be listening to the rest of the series.

Great book!

Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright do a wonderful job bringing this story to life. I always enjoy when a story is narrated by two individuals when it is in a dual POV.

Creed has walls up so high his friends barely see any emotion from him, but spitfire who doesn’t take his shit is about to change all of that and so much more. Elicea is a down on her luck former waitress who Creed hires as the new bartender to work at his exclusive club Crimson Elite. Now all they have to do is try to stay away from each other, even if they want nothing more then to loose themselves in the other.

TL Smith is a new to me author, and I am seriously hooked. This story is so so hot 🔥🔥🔥. I loved both Creed and Elicea, as well as the other 3 owners of the club.

Just no!

This is horrible. Creed goes around maiming and murdering people. The girl has a problem with it, breaks up with him. Then finds out she is pregnant and now she loves him even though he continues what he hams always done. I’m glad I got this book free and didn’t waste my money. I do like the narrator.

Creed & Elicea

A sinfully seductive, intriguing, and thrilling story. I was pulled in from the beginning, held captive, and left smiling in the end. Creed and Elicea are absolutely perfect for one another, they just take some time realizing that. This story was not exactly what I thought it would be going into it but I enjoyed every single second. Cannot wait to read more of the Crimson Elite. Narration was phenomenal!

Could not finish – not for me.

This is the first book in a series and a stand-alone. I bought both the Kindle and Audible versions to Whispersync them. At the time, it was cheaper than an Audible Credit, so it was well worth it to get both versions.

***Be warned the rest of this review is mildly spoilerish.***

I could not finish this book. I am writing this review to help anyone trying to decide whether to purchase or not. I misunderstood “sex club” from the blurb to mean a place where adults go with partners to have sex (like Dominants and Submissives do in BDSM novels). But no: Sex Club means “brothel.” The hero, Creed, is one of the owners. He “collects” women to work in his “Club.” We are told the women’s pay and conditions are very good compared to where they have been rescued from, and I have to accept that (and pray it’s right in order to see Creed as a good guy. The heroine, Elicea is employed by Creed to be a bar-tender. Their chemistry is intense; he is a very silent-type bad-boy alpha.

There are a few early incidents that demonstrate Creed is a violent enforcer type of character. Somehow I overlooked them hoping his character would improve. I stopped reading, however, when Elicea discovers Creed administering “severe punishment” (description from the blurb) in the form of injuries causing the loss of a lot of blood to another person.

At this point, I couldn’t escape the fact that Creed is a conscienceless, violent thug. My romance novel taste does not include this type of character as heroic. But other readers may not feel revulsion the way I do. I need Creed to stop his violent ways. Could Elicea help him redeem himself with half a book to go (2 hours of Audible listening)? I don’t know, because I didn’t stick around to find out what happens next. I was too shaken. This book is not for me. I’m returning the novel and Audio, sadly.

And I say “sadly” because I loved the narrators, Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton. They were wonderful, but I couldn’t cope with Creed’s work and life choices - they caused me distress. If this doesn’t bother you, however, you might love this book as other reviewers clearly do.
