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.

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.

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!

No. Just. Stop. Don’t.

Um this is literally the dumbest book ever. I mean. What? No. This was free. Thankfully. I only made it 3 hours in. Yes. 3 hours of my life I’ll never get back. Teddy Hamilton is literally the best and he couldn’t even save this book. A couple of things. If there’s gratuitous violence. Build up to it, like give the reader a good reason for it. Also if the characters are as deep as the shallow end of a kiddie pool at least make the sex scenes over the top. I do not understand the positive reviews. Are these people paid. It’s perplexing. I can’t. I’m done. No more. I’m afraid to try any more of her books. Gah.

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.

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

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.

Men in this Series are Horrible Human Beings

Don't waste your time. Cavalier is the first story in the Crimson Elite series. Spoiler Alert: I'm going to reveal much of the storyline. The men in this series are horrible human beings. The author seems to imply that they are good people because they stand up for each other and are physically beautiful. But in truth, they are a group of entitled pimps who own a private sex club with a staff of highly paid prostitutes who reject that name tag because they are paid so well. Creed, the main character, is a sadistic narcissist who releases his stress by killing and torturing anyone who might threaten their money—and that would include his love interest Elicea who witnessed a man being tortured if he hadn't decided he wanted her for himself. The women "employees" who agree to perform any sex act in public view (inside the club) with men who are famous and rich are paid lots of money to sell their bodies. Elicea forgives Creed for his sadistic behavior because he is handsome and great at sex. People are being tortured and killed—no big deal, right? The police are being paid off so it must be okay. When a sex employee no shows one night right after Creed has sex with Elicea, he suggests she fill in for the woman, and he is confused that this upsets her. But she forgives him because he's really good looking and has sex with him again. When she wakes up alone in his bed, she finds him in a soundproof room, covered head-to-toe in a victim's blood. The victim is still alive but missing fingers and teeth. Creed loves his work, and Elicea is no better than Creed. She does nothing to help the victim because it might mess up her relationship. Because Creed "loves" her, she is willing to stay with him and raise a baby with him as long as she never has to watch him kill someone else. Out-of-sight, out-of-humanity. And Creed is willing not to kill her or let his partners kill her as long as she keeps their secrets. And everyone lives happily ever after. Seriously, this book is horrible.

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.

Creed Christopher & Elicea Beckham

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Audible Plus review. Dual POV. Book 1 of 4 in the Crimson Elite series. Both narrators do a great job but Teddy Hamilton is excellent!!! This story is like so many others I've read over the past year, with the exception that if members of the club tell anyone about the club it could cost the member their life. Trigger warnings: Creed witnessed his father's murder; Elicea's mom and twin brother die when she's a teenager; Creed & Darby torture a man.

Creed is the only child of his widowed mother. He and his 3 life long friends own Crimson Elite, an elite gentleman's sex club that is so elite no one talks about it. Creed procures girls for the club and is the enforcer of the group of owners. Elicea witnesses a crime only to later find out that Creed was involved. Elicea loses her temper while waitressing, quits her job and is offered a job at Creed's club. Elicea fights her attraction toward Creed because he's her boss but the two finally succumb to their desires. Elicea gets pregnant and tries to keep it from Creed. The two move in together not long after Creed finds out and then they find out she's having a girl.

The last 25 minutes are a preview of book 2. JP

A book for teenagers!

3 hrs in and I find the story repeats itself a lot. Quite annoying, takes too long to moved on - not sure how often a point needs to be made before the writer realises the reader gets the point. So much more could've been explored, but it just jumps from on scene to another without much details where there should be.

Disappointing!

I loved this

I’m a big fan, can’t wait to listen to the other stories. At first I didn’t like Creed but he grew on me. Around chapter 20 he made me mad but I stuck with it and I can say I was pleasantly pleased with the ending. I also love the relationship between the boys and their friendship. Creeds mum is a sweetie and a great support. I loved the story and all the characters. 5 ⭐️

Nasty!

This is the first time I have had a saucy romance book on Audible. I listened to it all but didn't enjoy it. The characters were really off, especially the man, who had no redeming features. The storyline was mainly quite nasty - who would own a club and torture clientelle and more, if they told anyone about it? Also the narration wasn't the best.

Deadly Secret

What happens when to tell the truth could cost you everything including your life. This is the life of the patrons and staff of the Crimson Elite, a sex club for the wealthy where telling tales can get you killed.

Excellent writing and engaging narration makes for a compelling book that tells the story of how two different worlds collide in an explosion of lust and violence.

I had the pleasure of listening to this Audiobook through Audible Plus.

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!
