Strap on your vibrators, girls, because this one is indescribably hot.

Danny appears to have everything. He’s rich – wealthy enough that he doesn’t really have to work – super good looking, and can have any woman he wants. He also has a roommate, his best friend Paul, and the two share a – um – close relationship.

Wink wink.

Years ago, when the two were in high school, Paul was wildly in love with Eve. After graduation, she decamped from Tampa and headed to New York to pursue art school. But now, ten years later, she’s back in town, dumped by her fiancé and ready to make changes in her life. When she bumps into Danny in a grocery store, he invites her for a visit.

Yes, Eve and Paul dated, but Eve and Danny have undeniable chemistry. They are attracted to each other, and when they act on that attraction, you will need to take a cold shower just to finish reading about the action.

But wait. What about Paul?

He still loves Eve, and she still loves him. But she also loves Danny, who also loves Paul. And Paul loves Danny too. So these three crazy kids ought to be happy together, right?

Well … Paul is engaged.

Not that it stops the three from enjoying each other’s company.

Boy, do they ever. To say that they are a passionate threesome is to drastically underplay what goes on between them. Danny is the puppet master of sorts, but while he presents a stark, domineering persona, we know that his heart beats tenderly and lovingly for Eve and Paul. He’s a bit of a bastard, but he’s likable, and we worry for him.

The story line is entertaining enough to keep us going between sex scenes. We learn about Paul and Danny’s history together, and we understand – if not exactly relate to – the closeness they share with Eve. But what controls the book are the sex scenes.

Let me warn you that if Fifty Shades of Grey was too much for you, then you need to avoid this book. If you’re in the mood for some screaming hot headboard rockin’, then this is the one for you. Danny is a Dom, and Paul enjoys it when Danny inflicts pain, so be prepared for some fairly graphic BDSM scenes. Actually, the scenes are graphic, period. But oh so very very hot.

Don’t be surprised if you require a certain release after reading those scenes, though.

Storm Bound

Storm Bound (A Cabin Fever Novella)
by Alice Gaines
Published by Avon Red
Available August 14

4 / 5 cupcakes

Let me tell you: Alice Gaines can write about sexy times. A previous novella, Heat Rises, another in the Cabin Bound series, was scorching hot. This one, Storm Bound, makes Heat Rises look like kiddie lit.

Much like Heat Rises, the whole point of this fabulous little nugget is S-E-X. In this case, the hot lovin’ is a mènage á trois, M/F/M styles.

The “plot” that gets us to the sex focuses on a swanky resort at a tropical island. Christie Lovejoy (oh, the names – wait till we get to one of the men) looks at the resort as her “baby,” and she hopes that business partners – ready for it? – Wolf (!!!!!) and Jon will invest in the resort. When a hurricane bears down on the island, Christie makes sure everyone safely evacuates, except for Wolf (!!!!!) and Jon, with whom she hopes to get better acquainted. (wink wink)

Well, our boys are nothing if not up for this challenge, so they set out to help Christie keep her mind off of the hurricane. They have some hot – and I do mean HOT – sex. And in such locations! The hotel kitchen. The hotel workout gym. The beach. Christie discovers that two is better than one, and she revels in every touch, bite and thrust.

And then the rescue ferry arrives, and our story comes to its inevitable conclusion. Sadly, Alice Gaines tries to slap a happy face on the end, which is totally unnecessary. It would have been fine for the three to say their goodbyes and have the solace of their memories.

But that’s a minor quibble. You read these things for the sex, and Alice Gaines is more than happy to provide you with some hot headboard rocking.

Quick, hot and fun. That’s the essence of Storm Bound.

Sharing Hailey

Sharing Hailey

The cover tells you everything you need to know about this book. Except how it’s written.

Hailey is in her twenties, and, as we are told MANY times, she is very hot looking. What we are supposed to like about her is that she doesn’t know how hot she is (at one point, she’s told she is a Jennifer Aniston look-a-like). She thinks she’s ordinary.

Good for her.

When we meet her, she is on her way to Hawaii for a vacation with her brother, his pregnant wife, and her brother’s two best friends, Tony and Mark, who also are good friends of Hailey’s.

Can you guess who shares her? HINT: it isn’t her brother and his wife.

Hailey also is recovering from a break-up with her abusive ex-boyfriend Daniel. Being the approachable, just folks kind of girl she is, Hailey had no idea Daniel was abusive. Sure, he shoved her into the wall and up against a car. Sure, he left bruises. But he didn’t hit her, so he can’t be abusive, right? Wrong.

So anyway, while on the plane to Hawaii, Hailey gets some conflicting signals from Mark and Tony. She’s loved them for years but thinks they either are not interested or, worse, gay. It doesn’t matter anyway, really, because she wouldn’t choose between them if she had to do so. Well, good for her, because they don’t want her to choose, they want to share her!

The boys explain their plan to Hailey, and just to prove that it will be soooo good, they give her a little demonstration as to the fabulosity of this arrangement. Hailey decides this may be a great idea after all, so let’s do it, boys!

Of books must have conflict, and the conflict here is found in (a) Hailey’s brother, whose acceptance of her menage is feared by Hailey and her menfolk, (b) her sister-in-law’s heart condition, which poses a threat to her pregnancy, and (c) the crazy ex-boyfriend Daniel, who just might come to Hawaii to confront her. Oh, and he hates Mark and Tony.

Okay, so here’s the deal with this book. It isn’t very good. The sex scenes are hot, I’ll give it that much. I can’t imagine that it’s easy to write about threesomes, because everyone needs their shot (so to speak) at the action, and Samantha Ann King does a good job of writing those. The problem is the rest of the book. At times, King delivers a treatise on abuse, which, while certainly information we need, is not appropriate for this venue. The tension surrounding Daniel goes nowhere, and the worry over how friends and family will feel about Hailey’s unorthodox relationship is dispensed with too easily.

If you are into M/F/M threesomes and some hot lovin’, go ahead and give this a try. Just skip all of the unnecessary plot stuff.

Lord Atwood’s Lovers

Lord Atwood’s Lovers
by Eva Clancy
Published by: Spice Briefs
Available on Amazon.com.
Thanks to NetGalley for the preview.

Looking for a hot novella about threesome sexy times? Then look no further, my friends. Eva Clancy serves up total hotness with a m/f/m ménage.

This tasty morsel is a historical romance, of sorts, focused on the eponymous Lord Atwood, who recently married Imogen, a comely – and rambunctious – widow. They have this thing where they go to balls, she flirts with other men, he gets aroused, and they come home for some raucous headboard rocking.

“You knew you were making me hard tonight. You were being a wicked girl, weren’t you?”

“Yes,” she said hoarsely. “I was being a bad little slut, Charles. Now fuck me, please.”

And there you have it. Pillow talk, Atwood styles. When Imogen happens across Alex Lambert in the park, she finds out that he is an “old friend” of her husband’s and invites him for dinner. Turns out, Atwood and Alex liked to share all sorts of things, and Imogen is nothing if not determined to please her husband, so …

Other than an oddly placed sub plot involving Imogen’s first husband, Lord Atwood’s Lovers is all about the nooky, both within marriage and with a little extra something something. Clancy’s sex scenes are good, but better when it’s just Atwood and Imogen. The ménage outings were insufficient, I guess is the word. It isn’t that they are not hot, but there wasn’t enough.

If you’re in the mood for a quickie, this is the novella for you.

Party of Three

When it comes to reading about threesomes, I prefer two dudes and one girl. I think it’s because I don’t enjoy reading lesbian sex scenes; they just don’t do it for me. So when a book includes a girl-girl-guy menage trois, I have a difficult time getting into it. When it’s a girl-girl-boy menage trois with a graphic rape scene? The ick factor kicks in big time for me.

Such is the case with Daire St. Denis’ Party of Three, which focuses on Tina, her roommate, Desi, and Desi’ boyfriend, Josh. They comprise the title, and they engage in some three-way lovin’. While girls eating each others’ lady parts doesn’t make me moist, I’m sure it does for some readers, and I’ve got to say that St. Denis writes some hot sex scenes. Tina, Des and Josh rock that headboard right off its hinges.

But then there is the rape scene. And that, well, turned me off, quite thoroughly.

So the story is that Tina somewhat discovers that Desi and Josh are open to including her in their sexy times, and she’s happy to join. But she has a troublesome client, Kenton, whom Des warns her about quite vehemently. But Tina continues to work for him, which winds up getting her in a heap of trouble.

This may be a quick book to read, but it packs a lot of sex action, including some mild bondage. Daire St. Denis certainly can describe a hot kiss:

It was one thing to know how passionate a kiss felt. It was quite another to see it. Josh cupped Desi’s face in his strong hands and tilted her head for better access. I liked it. Desi could be so domineering, and it was good to see her controlled, even if it was just a simple kiss. 

I take that back – there was nothing simple about the way Josh kissed her. His tongue teased her lips and the inside of her mouth and, just when she reached for him, seeming to beg for more, he pulled away. She groaned and tried to catch his mouth by turning her head but he kept his distance, licking around her mouth, her cheek, ear, throat. He didn’t come back to her lips until he was good and ready and when he finally did, it was full-on. There was nothing gentle about it. Josh owned Desi’s mouth.

And away we go. Tina takes a liking to Desi’s, um, nether regions, and her feelings are reciprocated. She also takes a liking to Josh, which could have been an interesting area to explore, plot-wise, but St. Denis prefers to keep us in bed or in the shower or in the bathtub. Why delve deeper into Tina’s feelings for Josh when we can get her raped?

I didn’t like this book a whole lot, as you clearly can tell. But I’ll give St. Denis props for writing some good sex scenes. It was ruined with the rape, though. We just didn’t need to go there.
