They burn up the bed and each other with each man driving Rena to highest sexual limits she never knew existed. But now that she has had a taste of what life with both men could be like, is she really willing to give it up?
The story premise sounded good and I usually enjoy Jasmine Haynes’ books. However, this was more about the sex than about the story line and good solid characters. I couldn’t find myself relating to any of the characters. Grant Tyler is reserved due to going through a difficult divorce that was caused by his explosive emotions and desires. There wasn’t much depth in Grant’s character nor was there really any development in Karl’s character. He was a construction worker who liked kinky sex and Rena. I would have liked to know more about him and how all three characters personalities brought the passion expressed very well in the bedroom sections. That was the gist of what I took from the book. The book did have very graphic and explicit love scenes that were really hot and written well. I missed the connection from this book. The dynamics of the characters had a great plot set-up, but missed the mark on emotion. However, did hit the nail on the head with the ménage parts for sure. If you want a quick scorching read this is a good book, but if you are looking for solid characters and story line this would not leave you fulfilled.
