Publisher's Summary

Take three friends, add two ex-lovers and several new ones, then mix with more secrets than any of them know - and the result is a recipe for explosive rivalries and incendiary romance.

Attorney Liz Ramsey thought she had everything - a devoted partner, a challenging job, and plans for a family in the making. Unfortunately her life takes a turn, and she ends up alone and in the kind of trouble she never dreamed of. Then she bumps into - literally - young surgeon Reilly Danvers, and life gets even more complicated.

Liz's two best friends offer all the support she needs, but they have secrets of their own. Candace Lory, a high-powered commodities trader and swinging playgirl, meets her match when she hooks up with corporate attorney Parker Jones. Brenda Beal, the only member of the group who hasn't slept with every available woman, prefers to fantasize about a perfect lover, especially if she's obedient and willing to do anything Bren orders. A surprise birthday outing and a dashing, dark-eyed submissive transform Bren's fantasies into reality and her dark secrets into delicious pleasures.

A Little More of a Edge Than Usual

As a romantic kind of girl my influence in this library is obvious, I'm a real softie. However for the most part Radclyffe books have been too mushy even for me. This selection has more of an edge than any of the other six or eight books of hers I've listened to previously.
The Lonely Hearts club consists of three lesbian women who've been friends since their college days and are seemingly unable to find or maintain relationships. The chief protagonist Attorney Liz Ramsey is still in the process of getting over being dumped for a 23 year old grad student by her longtime girlfriend Julia. Julia is a nice example of a realistic heavy; she's not mean or evil she's just self-centered, self indulgent, insensitive, and blind to the feelings of others.
Brenda (Bren) is, unbeknownst to her friends, a writer of erotic fiction; she is unaware, even to herself what it is she's searching for.
Candace is the hot chick of the group as well as a Wall Street trader and the kind of player that you normally associate with a male professional athlete. She meets and spends a night with an attorney in Liz's firm; Parker Jones is another version of Candace, she's a player to whom the phrase 'long term relationship' equates to a holiday weekend. The two of them have a night that threatens to, gasp, become something more than a night of good sex.
Finally Dr. Reilly Danvers, an orthopedic surgeon who has avoided relationships since the death of her first serious lover. She and Liz begin a push/pull relationship that seems to be de riguer for all romance novels; that includes misunderstandings, miscommunication, assumptions, and a lack of communication. Though both of the two main protagonists have a too good to be true vibe they aren't the paragons depicted depicted in many of the authors works. In closing if you're a Radclyffe fan you'll love this book; if not, give it a shot anyway.

Where's the continuation?!

Loved this story. There was some irritation with the parts including Julia; was almost not enough to be worthy of including...but glad there wasn't more of her character truthfully. I so wish there was an epilogue or continuation to the 3 main story lines.

Great story

The three members of the Lonely Hearts Club are former college friends. Now in their early 30s each finds themselves tempted by the types of love each has craved but never dreamed of finding.

One of my faves

I always live the Radclyffe/Abby Craden duo. Craden does an excellent job narrating radclyffe’s works as always. As for the book itself, please please please let there be a sequel. Also, I love how there’s occasionally overlapping characters from other books, even if they don’t play a large role. It’s comforting to think of them out there in the world created for them between the pages.

Loved It!

I read this book years ago and decided to listen again. However I forgot that Back then I was waiting for a sequel or perhaps the friends stories could have continued with another ending for them.

Sweet, naughty, and everything in between!

I've always been a huge fan of Radclyffe's stories. Over the years I've amassed a lot of her works on my bookshelves and have yet to come across one I didn't like. The Lonely Hearts Club sticks out as my favourite. Wonderful characters that I couldn't help but love. I'm relatively new to listening to audiobooks and was extremely happy to see this was available. Abby Craden did an amazing job of giving voice to these characters. If I could, I'd give this unlimited stars and multiple thumbs up!
