Alexa is young, sexy and single in New York. She’s also alone. When she meets two hunky musicians, will they make her their perfect third?

Alexa is young, sexy and single in New York. She’s also alone. But she doesn’t want to date any more of the stuffy men she meets through her job at the law firm – she needs some excitement. When she meets hunky Lorne, a film score composer, at a premiere after-party, she can’t believe her luck when he asks her out.

After an incredibly hot night of sex, when it seems that this is just the relationship she’s been waiting for, things inexplicably cool down. Does his best friend and roommate, the dangerously handsome Antony, have anything to do with it?

One night the truth of Lorne and Antony’s relationship is revealed to Alexa, and she has a difficult choice to make. Is she willing to just let go and become their perfect third?

If your looking for a quick very sexy read, this one will be that book.  Lorne and Anthony are looking for the perfect woman to add to their three some.

Lorne is very sweet to Alexa when he meets her but Anthony was uninterested in getting to know her. I kinda thought he was a jerk.  But after one night together he changed his mind.

The story was just about the three having sex.

I normally love Knight books, but this one just didn’t do it for me.  It was so quick and mainly sex.  While the sex was hot, the relationship was under developed and seemed almost strained at times.
I wanted more development of an actual story, rather than the men, Lorne and Antony finding a woman who was able to handle both of their love.  It hinted at a past, but we were not given much of it.
I also wished that the female character had more of a spine – she seemed to just go with the flow, being OK with not hearing from Lorne for a few weeks and then just being OK with what they were suggesting.
Overall, this was a quick, steamy read that was not very developed.

It’s short. It’s sexy. It’s not really a story with much guts but lots of sex. Sometimes you just want the gritty details, and lots of skin on skin. This is a ‘quick fix,’ so to speak. hehe
Morticia Knight has a way with dirty words.
She has a ton of books out, but I haven’t read this author before. I am not scared off, I would read more by this author!

4 Stars for Gatekeepers and Dreamweavers by Helena Maeve #MMF #Supernatural @LT3Press

1.5

Title: Gatekeepers and Dreamweavers
Author Name & Publisher: Helena Maeve (Less Than Three Press)
Publication Date: November 11, 2015

Synopsis

Condemned for witchcraft and about to swing for the abduction of half a dozen children, Irene is bewildered when her noose breaks. Her only hope lies in the forests that have protected the women of her family for generations. But when a young man fleeing abuse ventures into her safe haven, Irene’s plans are suddenly thrown into disarray.

Too pretty for his own good, Simon Bonnay has been on the receiving end of unwanted attention for years. And though she may be a witch, Simon would sooner earn his keep with Irene than any of the men in town.

As a night of passion gives way to brutal morning, leaving a man dead and a witch hunter wounded on their doorstep, Irene’s secluded home soon becomes a pressure cooker of volatile emotions and sweltering passion. Old enemies may have no choice but to work together to prevent a greater evil – or die trying.

I really liked this book!

You get everything with this action and angst plus so much steam between Irene, Simon and Lucas.
This starts with Irene on trial for witchcraft due to missing children. You see how unfair the witch trails back in the day really were with this book. She escapes and one thing leads to another and Simon shows up. The connection between Irene and Simon starts with Lucas who is a witch hunter later on being added after everything happens in this book. They search for the children that are missing eventually Irene goes off on her own where she is in danger. They eventually find out who is behind the abductions and why.

I cant go to much more into it without giving away a lot of this book. It was a super fast read but I really liked it and hope there will be more of Simon, Irene and Lucas.

So I will leave this review with I really liked this novella and I would definitely recommend it!

4 Stars for A Winter in Rome by Francis Gideon #MMF #Romance @LT3Press

1.5

Title: A Winter in Rome
Author Name & Publisher: Francis Gideon (Less Than Three Press)
Publication Date & Length: November 1, 2015 – 192 pgs

Synopsis

Craig is a man adrift, never quite feeling like he belongs or like he’s as successful and settled as those around him-especially his lovers, Alan, an art professor he met while in college, and Sybil, who tutored him throughout his Italian class. When Alan goes to Rome life becomes even shakier and the only grounding point becomes the corkboard of memories Craig creates for the three of them. By the time Alan returns, Craig isn’t certain how his relationships will change-especially when Alan starts to fall for Sybil, bringing two pieces of his world completely together and leaving Craig worried it will create a world that has no place for him.

This is what fandom calls an OT3, bloggers call a F/M/M (more on that), and traditionalists call a menage a trois. So immediately my mind went to sex. There’s a small amount of sex in this book. But it’s really more of a treatise on existentialism, art, and gender. Which I LOVE. Action-packed, it is not.
We see three characters through Craig’s eyes. We see Craig himself, affable, recently-graduated college student, with no purpose to his life. We see Alan, part typical professor/part infectious artist. And we see Sybil, Craig’s lover, Alan’s paramor. The third leg of the stool? Or the wedge between Alan and Craig?
What’s refreshing about this book (besides its sedate eloquence) is that Craig, Alan, and Sybil are all good people. They want to do right by the world and right by each other. That means also figuring out what’s right for themselves. It’s something to aspire to, rather than something to indulge in.
Yes, it’s rather privileged and bourgeois, but it’s also about how to love. Something many of us could benefit from learning.

It Takes Two was a fantastic short, hot read.  Max and Sam, friends and lovers, help out Eva with car trouble.  Many years later and still friends their relationship develops into more.

For a short book this had a huge punch to it.  There was a decent mystery to the story along with some hot sex.

I found Eva to be a strong independent woman who became a police officer.  Max was the alpha male between him and Sam.  It seemed Max was always in charge,  I loved it.

The story was developed well and the characters were perfect. As this is book 1 I hope we meet more of Max’s swat team in the future.  Loved this book can’t wait for more.

FourStars

Eva, Sam and Max were almost instant friends.  Max and Sam were lovers long before they were friends with Eva, but once they were able to wriggle their way in to her life, she was theirs too.  Despite feelings over the years, nobody ever took the first step.

While I liked that the dynamic between the three was friends who love each other, I did find it kind of hard to believe that nobody ever struck up the courage to say anything.  Why did it take Eva’s danger to help Sam and Max realize that they did want that next step?

It seemed almost too complex of a story for such a short book.  It was rushed and at times, felt almost pieced together.

I liked the plot and found that I wanted to know the answers just as much as the characters, but also felt that it was somewhat predictable too.

I honestly don’t know if this series will continue to follow these three or move on to Max’s SWAT members because there is almost no build-up for the next book.

This was a short story, with some hot sex, but lacked something for me.  It was probably due to the short duration of the story.

AvidReader

FourStars

This was an… interesting story.
I liked the plot, but I felt like some crucial details were left out. Like how had things not progressed earlier when all involved were interested and not really trying to hide it.
I really felt that the SWAT side of things had absolutely nothing to do with the book except that one of the members was a SWAT member, which left me a bit disappointed. And some of the other aspects of law enforcement seemed like they aren’t realistic.
I’ve read other books by this author and felt like this wasn’t one of her best. I wasn’t as drawn into the story as much as I’d have liked.
That being said, I didn’t think it was overall bad, just needed some more finesse to the writing and more to the characters to make them meatier and interesting.
Renee

ThreeandHalfStars I liked the storyline in this book, but there were a couple things I had a problem with. This is my first book by Theresa Hissong, and to tell you the truth, I was a little unimpressed by the quality of writing. The book is fairly well plotted, but the writing itself is a bit simplistic for such a prolific author. It seems like there should be more detail, more description, just more. As far as the plot itself, the biggest problem I had was that all three people waited so long to make a move toward each other. The two males are already in a loving relationship when they meet Eva when she’s 16. The story starts about 16 years later. All three have been yearning for a deeper relationship together for years. Now someone is after Eva. I understand that the danger brings all of them together, and allows an opening for “the move” to finally occur. I just don’t understand why they all held back for so many years without a single one of them saying anything. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the book. I did. It was a quick read, the sex scenes were pretty damn hot, and it was interesting enough to keep me reading.

ThreeStar

I picked up this book for two reasons: the world bisexual and the word cop. I love me so bi-peoples and I love me some officers of the law. I was not disappointed in the bisexual aspect, but I was disappointed in the crime. This novella seemed to have an issue deciding if it wanted to be an erotic romance or a crime/mystery.

 

Working with law enforcement for quite a number of years, I was saddened by the lack of research into the cop side of the drama on this one. There were a lot of aspects that were off in it, things that would never happen. But that was all redeemed in the romantic aspect of it.

 

The plot, the overall concept of this novella, is one I loved. It was great, creative, would have been interesting and been a five star book had it been executed well, but it wasn’t. The writing was a bit bland and far more telling than showing. I never connected with the characters (all the men are UFC fighter size, by the way, SPOILER on that one), and Eva, for being a beat cop, had no strength, no jadedness, no independence even though the book stated (that’s right, stated did not show) that she was independent. She was the weakest woman I have read in a story in a very long time.

 

I’m not at all convinced these problems could have been resolved if the novel had been expanded and both plot threads—romance and mystery—had been allowed to come into their own.

Excerpt

Max left the station with the two files in hand. It was close to mid-morning and the evidence from the storms the night before dotted yards and roadsides on his way back to his property just outside the city limits. Small trees were down and although there was no tornado, there was some wind damage to homes close to his.

Thankfully, it looked like they only lost a few limbs on the large oak trees in the sprawling five acres of his front yard of the property. So, it was no surprise to see Eva and Sam spending their Sunday morning cutting and hauling away limbs to a pile to be burned later.

Max stopped on the long gravel driveway up to the house. Eva was tossing limbs into a small trailer that was being pulled behind one of the four-wheelers they owned. Sam approached Max’s SUV, swiping away dirt from his cheek.

“Hey,” Max said when Sam was close enough to hear him. “Eva doesn’t need to be using that shoulder.”

“Tell her that,” Sam laughed and hooked a thumb over his shoulder. “Stubborn, remember?”

Max noticed how Eva was lifting and huffing with a heavy limb. Her long brown hair was pulled up into a tight ponytail and she was bundled up in jeans, boots and one of the hoodies that Sam had bought for her the day before. After the storm had rolled through, the temperatures dropped quickly and they’d be expecting snow in the next few days.

“I’ll go in and build a fire,” Max said, keeping his eyes on Eva’s small body as she worked. She really was beautiful.

“Okay, we’ll finish up and meet you at the house,” Sam winked.

“Hey,” Max said suddenly, stopping Sam from turning away.

“Yeah,” Sam replied.

“How is she this morning?” Max asked, worried. Would she panic and run?

“Perfect,” Sam looked back at Eva. “She’s absolutely perfect.”

4 and 3.5 Stars for Eyes Wide Open (Totally Five Star) by Lucy Felthouse #Menage #Erotic @cw1985 @PridePublishing

1.1

Title: Eyes Wide Open (Totally Five Star)
Author Name & Publisher: Lucy Felthouse (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: August 25, 2015 – 182 pgs

Synopsis

An ordinary girl catapulted into an extraordinary world meets two even more extraordinary men—but what will she do when she discovers their sexy secret?

Fiona Gillespie moved to London shortly after graduating to take advantage of the opportunities the capital could offer. However, months later, she’s still living in a horrid flat and working in a grimy East End pub. The problem is, she doesn’t really know what she wants to do, career-wise. So when she happens upon an advertisement for a job at a plush Mayfair hotel, she jumps at the chance. A great deal of determination and a spot of luck land Fiona her dream role.

But working at the Totally Five Star London is just the beginning. She adores the role and flourishes, impressing her bosses and making her increasingly determined to climb the career ladder.

While her career is flying, though, her love life is non-existent. She hasn’t even thought about men, never mind met or dated one for months, so when she bumps into two gorgeous businessmen in the hotel, she’s surprised to find her head has been well and truly turned. Even more surprisingly, they flirt with her—both of them! She’s drawn to James and Logan, despite feeling that they’re way out of her league.

When a misunderstanding leads Fiona to James and Logan’s sumptuous top-floor suite, she has no idea what she’s about to uncover. Scenes of people-trafficking, drug-pushing and wild sex parties all appear in her active imagination. Yet what she actually sees is something she’d never even considered before, something that piques her interest.

After discovering their sexy secret, what will she do with this new-found knowledge?

Reader Advisory: This book contains elements of BDSM, anal sex and double penetration.

Fiona is a character that I could really like.  She is a strong, independent woman who goes after what she believes she wants in life.  There are things that rarely scare her and she is not afraid to explore the unknown on her own.

Then you have the hunky set of Logan and James.  Yum.  They are a couple who is not afraid to ask for what they want and what they want is Fiona.

I really liked the setting of this story – despite it being where Fiona worked, I felt that it was a good compromise and allowed the reader to see further inside Fiona’s life.  I felt that this story was lacking somewhat in the sex scenes – I was more used to a more descriptive nature.  I didn’t get the heat from these scenes like I did in other Felthouse books.

Overall, I enjoyed this story and wished that I could see where it went.  Their future just kind of hung in the balance with little resolution.

ThreeandHalfStars

I am really starting to enjoy the Totally Five Stars series.  This one is set in London and focuses on Fiona, recent uni graduate and new employee at the hotel and James and Logan, two wealthy guests

A good girl from the Midlands with a strong Brummie accent, she is awed by London, the hotel and the two handsome men.   For me, Fiona is a little too innocent, a little too good and a little too nice.  For the first part of the book, I found her pretty unremarkable and more than a little bland.  

Logan and James are hot.  I enjoyed their partnership, their friendship and the power-exchange element of their relationship.  Once Fiona gets involved in the men’s BDSM relationship, she also becomes more interesting.  I expected her to be an easy submissive, but enjoyed her as a switch.  

I think I might have enjoyed this more if we had more of a chance to see Logan and James on their own, or to have some of the story narrated by the men.  Fiona’s wide-eyed innocent introduction to the world of BDSM was a little tedious after a while.

I found the author’s choice of scenes slightly frustrating at times.  There are chapters focused on Fiona’s new job, but the triad’s experiences at a BDSM club are summarised in a couple of paragraphs.  I’d kinda rather see the bondage club than a job interview.  But maybe that’s just me?   

The actual BDSM content of this book is pretty tame, especially compared to others in the Totally Five Stars Series.   The sex was pretty hot and I feel this is more convincing as a menage (adding a third partner) than as a story of a committed polyamorous triad.   

There really isn’t enough romance or relationship development here for me to believe in an emotional commitment between the three partners – especially when it is only  the female partner forced to compromise to make the relationship work.  

Sarah

 ExcerptOne of the door attendants she’d seen buzzing around the Mercedes was there, and he moved to open the door for her, giving a polite nod.

“Thank you,” she said, flashing him a warm smile and passing through into the lobby.

The first impression that hit her was one of space. Damn, this was just the reception area and it was cavernous. And yet it was far from sparse. Off to the left side was what appeared to be a sitting area, which was probably also used for informal meetings. It was carpeted in a lush dark purple, with round, very stylish, light wood tables and comfortable-looking black leather chairs.

To her right, she saw a couple of elevators, and a large archway, which, according to the sign over it, led to the spa and gym facilities. She suspected it was situated just inside the main doors because it was open to non-guests too.

The floor beneath her feet was marble, and large potted plants and trees were dotted around, drawing her gaze to the beautiful wooden paneling on the walls, and the paintings hung at what she suspected were far from random intervals. The whole place had an authentic, old-fashioned feel to it, but more like it had been decorated to look that way, rather than because the décor had been like that for decades. It all appeared fresh and immaculate, and she didn’t envy the no doubt huge team of people employed to keep it that way.

Finally, she turned her attention to the reception desk. It was set in an alcove, with a wooden surface that matched the wall paneling and had stunning flower arrangements perched at each end. There was still plenty of room between, however, and no less than three pretty receptionists waited there to deal with guests—or should she say two pretty ones and one handsome one, since there were two women and a man.

Pulling in a deep breath and straightening her posture, she moved from where she’d been loitering off to one side of the main doors and walked to the desk—aware how easy it would be to tumble off her shoes on the smooth surface beneath her feet. It was the sort of place where people would rush to her aid and make sure she was okay, rather than laugh their arses off, but still, that was not the kind of first impression she wanted to make. Plus, she wasn’t sure her ego could take the humiliation.

“Hello,” the nearest receptionist, a redhead, said, as Fiona approached.

“Welcome to the Totally Five Star. How can I help you?”

She’d obviously clocked that Fiona didn’t have any luggage or a bellboy hovering nearby, which was why she’d not asked if she was checking in. Smiling, Fiona replied, “Hello. I’m here for an interview. My name is Fiona Gillespie.”

Synopsis

Professional life in the City of London is tough going which is why my husband Gabe and I live by the motto work hard and play hard. So when something, or rather someone, comes along that changes how he wants to play I’m intrigued by our sexy new game.

But there’s always private sides to the ones you love, and in this case new thoughts and desires are stealing Gabe’s dreams. It’s not until I meet Brent—gorgeous and sophisticated yet soul-achingly alone—that I begin to understand the complex layers of Gabe’s needs and exactly what I have to do.

But I’m not afraid; in fact the idea of two men turns me the hell on. In a whirlwind of romance, fear, desire and a new cresting wave of passion we open up to each other, testing the water for one weekend only. Or is it? Will we ever be the same again? Can Gabe and I survive our decision to let a third into our bed? Can Brent just walk away and, more importantly, will we let him?

I absolutely loved this book. The entwining of a happily married couple with a man who is going through a divorce.
It’s sexy and interesting as is normal with every other Lily Harlem book I’ve read. I can’t believe how well she portrayed the feelings each of the characters was going through at each point in the story as things change unexpectedly (or dealing with emotions that were unexpected).
Lily Harlem’s books suck you in on the first page and only release you once you have finished the story and this one is exactly the same. Each character is real and relatable.
I can’t wait for more from Lily!

I truly enjoyed this story.  It had good intrigue, mystery and the romance love story was amazing!

I think the character whom I truly loved with Flint.  He showed an amazing character even behind his Hollywood persona.

Mollie and Lysander were amazing characters too.  But the relationship that developed between Mollie and Flint was one of pure love – one that only would have developed with exactly the circumstances that they met, where they were in their life and who they wanted to become.

Lysander’s character, for me, took a bit of warming up.  He seemed almost too grouchy.  But, once you learn him beyond his outward exterior, he grew on me.  He was amazingly patient and loving towards both Mollie and Flint.

This book had some very hot scenes and the romance between the three was outstanding.

I loved this story and would definitely read more from Elsbord.

I completely loved this story. The beginning sort of dragged for me as we were learning about three seperate lives, but once they started to twist together the book became so hard for me to put down. It was a bit on the longer side, but I really don’t know how there could’ve been anything taken from it.
There is a lot going on with each character and in the end there is great closure for all I believe.
The scenes between all three were super hot and you could feel the love that had been lost and refound between the men along with the need and passionate that came with Mollie being added to the mix.
I would totally pick up another book by this author as I couldn’t wait to find out how everything went for all of them all the way until the very end, where we were blessed with another little surprise.

Synopsis

Annabelle Calhoun has always been too strong to break, but now she’s going to have to bend if she wants to keep the love that’s unexpectedly come into her life.

Annabelle Calhoun had always been proud of her independence. She didn’t need a man in her life for any longer than a night, and even then, it was her way or the highway. Seeing her brother Rory in a loving monogamous relationship didn’t sway her, neither did the love between her bunkhouse mates, Max and Bo. She didn’t want anything other than a good time from a man.

But two men—she’s been there, done that, but these two men, Justin and Evan, want something more than one night. Together, they just might be enough to make Annabelle bend.

i am still new to reading menage, but oh my was this book great!! The plot had me gripped right away. The characters are so well written and well described that i fell in love with them all.Belle is such a strong willed, self suffecient woman. and i was so happy she decided to relenquish a little bit of her controll and give her men a chance to love her. I would love to read more on their story!

I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but I felt like we got enough from this book that I didn’t need to read them to know what was going on.
I really liked the way the story played out with Evan and Justin being together before and looking for a new third to work in their relationship. However, at times I just didn’t think they all fit together. They were all a bit whiny at times and that annoyed me.
The whole situation with Rory and their father sort of disappointed me after all they’d been through between siblings and as a family.
Altogether, another great book by Bailey Bradford who is fast becoming one of my favorite authors who never lets me down. Hot sex, well developed characters with a great plot to boot.

Alicia is in the midst of facing a crisis while life is busy throwing other hurdles in Adam’s and Ace’s lives.

Right when she needs them most, they appear, but there is still the fact they’d hurt her and disappeared on her, not to mention her past is still haunting her.

Well I’m disappointed this series is done.  Sure thought Alicia was one lucky girl throughout these books. (Laughing)   But once again it was flawless, the story concluded just as you would hope it would.  We have both Ace and Adam struggling with what to do.  But I loved how Alicia was strong and determined to make it on her own.I very much enjoyed these short steamy reads and highly recommend them to be read!!

While I LOVED this series, this book seemed to end too fast. Everything was resolved without any real conflict. I wish the men had had to work a little harder after accusing her of something so sad and awful.  Also, I wish her dad’s conflict had been not so easily resolved.
I understand that the book was more about their relationship – which is awesome, but in the end, it was just too easily wrapped up – despite me loving the ending.
This would also be great as 1 whole book instead of 5 parts too, but it was fun to read it in sections as well.

ThreeandHalfStarsAnd so it finally comes to an end.  After five installments of attraction, complication, misunderstanding, mistrust and some very hot sex scenes, we are finally at the last chapter.At the start of part 5, Alicia runs.  If Adam and Ace don’t trust her, she will work through her problems without them.  But Alicia is still at risk and without her men to protect her, she is vulnerable.I’ve given this slightly fewer stars than the other installments because so much happens in very few pages here.  We’re told about important events after they happen, we aren’t shown.  And while the HEA has been a long time coming, forgiveness and sex come a little too quickly for me in this final episode.

But the chemistry between the three characters is still hot and Orman writes some sizzling sex scenes as the lovers re-unite.

This is the first serialised story I’ve read and I’ve really enjoyed catching up on each installment as it was released.

AuthorBio

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.

I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.

I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I’ll write just about anything once to learn from it. I’ve even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you’ll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.

Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
