REVIEW : The Open Door by Laurelin Paige

I knew JC was trouble the minute I laid eyes on him. 

Breaking every rule in my club. I never forget how he made me feel that night. With all the women in that room, all those bodies on display, but his eyes were only on me. 

Of course I married him. Now years have passed. Kids have been born. We’re still in love as always, and the sex is still fantastic… 

And yet, it’s also not. Like many who’ve been married for a while, I long for the high intensity of those days of the past. 

I’ve heard rumors for years about the Open Door. An ultra-exclusive voyeur’s paradise. A place to participate in—or watch—any kind of display you can imagine. 

My husband’s eyes would still be on me. And maybe other eyes too. If that’s what we want. 

So when an invitation to come play arrives, how could we turn it down? 

I thought ab out our night at The Open Door. It had been astonishing, but it had also been fun. It had been exhilarating. It had been arousing.


I loved this novella. It was great to revisit JC and Gwen after all these years. This one was HOT HOT HOT! JC and Gwen were never lacking when it came to steaminess and they still aren’t, if anything their chemistry has gotten even hotter. So when the opportunity to visit the exclusive The Open Door they take it.

Gwen is an overwhelmed mother to three boys, she takes the opportunity that The Open Door presents to enjoy some time with her husband, to spice things up a little (not that they really need it). I love that Gwen is so real. She has insecurities. But she also has an ultra swoon-worthy husband in JC. He loves every single thing about his wife, including all her insecurities.

My only wish is that this was longer. I wanted more of The Open Door (which I truly hope makes some more appearances in future books), more JC and Gwen and more of Gwen and Alayna’s friendship. This book is a novella to The Found Duet, however, it is also a great introduction to a fantastic world that Laurelin Paige has created.
