Book Description: Talia indulges her sexual pleasures, turning her life into a twisted mess. Sleeping with Alex is dangerous and reckless. She craves that excitement. Loving Will is comforting and safe. She needs that stability. Why can’t she get everything she wants from one man?
Will has everything under control, and watching his girlfriend flirt with his best friend fuels his lust for her. He loves Talia, and he trusts Alex. It’s all good… as long as he makes the rules.
Alex doesn’t give a damn about rules. He knows how to play with fire without getting burned. It’s just sex with Talia. No emotions means no attachments — that’s one rule he won’t break.
Sometimes dirty little secrets are more dirty than secret.
My Review: This is an 18+ erotic story that contains elements of light bondage, erotic asphyxiation, role play and a MFM ménage.
An enticingly crafted series of vignettes/fantasies that all focus on one woman, Talia, and the two men she is involved with. Although she craves the sameness, security and safety in her relationship with Will, she longs for the release and abandon that only Alex can provide.
The author has created a series of believable scenes that all have input in the form of point of view from each of the characters. Never once did the point of view changes get confused or muddled, and there were subtle shifts in tone that clearly reflected the “who” in the point of view. Difficult to accomplish with a single character – many kudos to the author for managing three.
What results is a very sultry and sexy romance, where we see growth in the relationships and the characters as the story progresses and they all redefine limits for themselves and their relationships. This doesn’t end with a HEA, as a matter of fact there are several complications and unresolved issues, just like life. Fortunately this is the first in the series, and hopefully there will be more about this oddly triangulated relationship and the people who inhabit it.
I received an eBook copy from the author for review for Full Moon Bites tours. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
About the Author: I got hooked on trashy romance novels in junior high, but my mom took them away from me. She couldn’t stop me from daydreaming, though. After I got married, I wrote some of my naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine, which published two of them. I kept daydreaming and writing stories until my dirty stories turned into trashy books.
I live in Colorado, but I’ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When I’m not lusting after my next bad boy hero, I’m looking for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, bloodsucking lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks.
I’m known as “”Trashy Writer”” at various social media sites. I call myself a trashy writer because I want my readers to know that I enjoy mindless escapism as much as they do. I’m not out to win a Pulitzer Prize. I just want to help someone relax and get away from it all for a little while. I write romance, erotica and trash for fun and pleasure.
