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.

4 Star Review

I will start by saying this isn’t what I expected at all, it was so much more. After watching the trailer for the book I couldn’t wait to jump in.. The 27 Club is about love, loss, destiny and living.

The story begins with us meeting Zach, he has just turned 27 and knows his time is near. That seems so odd, but Zach just knows it’s his destiny to die at 27. He has a lot of evidence in his family to support his theory, but he decides to not let fear run his life and live life to the fullest. Unfortunately, Zach was right and he dies at the young age of 27.

That’s how we meet Zoey, Zach’s sister. She has come to Miami to resolve everything surrounding her brother’s death and maybe get some much needed closure for herself since she is now 27. Zoey quickly meets Nate, Zach’s friend, and they develop a connection. I don’t want to spoil the story because I do believe the less you know the better.

I love when a story unfolds while reading and I am able to experience all the twists, turns and surprises. I love when I can be surprised by things and Kim Karr definitely surprised me and left me guessing. I enjoyed all the characters. I loved how Zoey was able to channel her strength. I loved Nate, he was exactly what Zoey needed and I enjoyed his charming, refreshing personality.

More than that was the message I took away from the story. Now the take away will be different for everyone, but for me it was about living life. In this case it is fear of untimely death, but if we all look at our own lives we can see that we rarely LIVE everyday. While this book broke my heart at times in the end I enjoyed the message, I loved the romance aspect, and enjoyed how it just felt whole.
