***½ The Nightclub by N. T. Morley. Erotica.
This is one of the dozen or so books I got when the Venus book club went out of business.
It's the story of Jordan, who gets expelled from school for hiding out in the boys' locker room, where she discovers her submissive side. She gets a job in a club where she'll get paid extra for being spanked, then she gets blackmailed by a cop into spying on her employer. Sneaking into the secret back room results in her being shipped in a crate to a South American crime lord.
And that's just the first half of the book.
The beginning, in particular, is awfully Letters-to-Penthouse-ish, and requires a lot of suspension of disbelief. If you try to take any of it even remotely seriously, you'll probably throw the book against the wall.
But if you can manage to suspend disbelief, it's pretty darn hot. Like the book equivalent of an older porn movie that has a ridiculous plot and terrible acting, but you find yourself unable to quit watching anyway.
