Well, I was a little disappointed in the Viewing Room. It just wasn't as solid as a follow up to the Dark Room as I thought it would be. I anticipated the scenes regarding the Viewing Room would be steamier, and more descriptive than they were. The lack of details regarding the "room" just made this another story about a strip club. I was also slightly disappointment with insta-love between the H/h. However, I did love the plot and the reverse character roles, a slightly older female character with an established law firm, and a younger male (just a couple of years difference) who is working as a stripper to pay his way through law school. That was a refreshing change of pace, most other romances it's the other way.
While the relationship between the H/h was instant, I liked they both knew what they wanted, and were determine to give their relationship a shot. None of the usual push/pull, no mind games or baggage, they worked well as a team and for a common goal. The sex scenes were descriptive and hot.
The story is well written, captivating, and moves at a steady pace. Both the plot and subplot was good, giving the story suspense and a dangerous edge that actually sneaks up on you. One of Kennedy's friends wants to get a divorce so she hires Kennedy's law firm. They suspect the client's husband has been cheating on her and goes to the Viewing Room to commit the act. Kennedy is determined to try to catch him in the act before filling the divorce papers. She and Hunter keep their eyes open while they are at the club and in the Viewing Room, just when they are about to give up, they finally see him at the club. When she files the divorce, he becomes violent, lashes out and devises a plan to get even with everyone. He was more dangerous than they gave him credit.
As with the first story, the narration was great! Emily and James both did an amazing job with the characters, emotions and their performance was lively. I would listen to other audios narrated by either of them.
While I was a little disappointed with the lack of details regarding the Viewing Room, I really liked the plot, and reverse character roles and did enjoy the story. I will definitely be on the lookout for other stories in the series. This is still a great KU/whispersync deal!

I loved Dark Room and I was so thrilled to continue on with Viewing Room, I knew there was a story to tell there.
Kennedy is a divorcee that is looking to move on with her life. Her divorce was amicable and she just wants her ex and her to find happiness. Her friends just want her to stop working late and start having a good time. Which is how they ended up at Society X. Never did Kennedy imagine meeting the man of her dreams, Hunter. Hunter is working at the sex club to pay for his education and having a good time while doing it. That is, until he meets Kennedy and then he is forced to reevaluate his priorities. This becomes even more apparent when a coincidence lands them together in much more professional ways.
I am not sure if it was Emily Devereaux's performance or if this book just felt forced, but I had a hard time connecting to the story. The reason why I feel it might have been the performance is because I tended to get more into the story when James Kavanaugh was narrating. This is an instalove kind of story so when Emily was narrating, or maybe it was just Kennedy's personality, I didn't feel that same intense connection that was felt with Hunter and James performing. It pulled me out of this world and didn't keep me intensely involved the way I experienced with Dark Room.
That being said, the story was great and I loved the connection that kept Hunter and Kennedy in each other's lives in more ways than one. I also loved the subplot of the scorned ex of a client. This brought in drama and a whole new level of excitement.
Credit worthy? To me, it was meh. I liked it. Didn't love it.
