Book DescriptionNatalie Fritz didn’t need a night of sexual adventure as payment for setting her friend up, but she wouldn’t turn it down either. Determined to make sure she gets exactly what she wants, she contacts Madame Eve and requests not one, but two dates for the evening. What she doesn’t expect is for those men to be players on her friend’s hockey team.

Ian and Todd find that sharing women provides all parties with more pleasure. Finding someone who buys into their theory is a little harder. So they turn to Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stand service to locate a partner. When they meet Natalie, they discover a gorgeous woman who turns them on physically and intellectually.

Most relationships are meant to be between two people, but what happens when it takes three to make the night worthwhile? Can they take a leap of faith or will their time be limited to one night?

My Review:   An 18+ erotic novella that contains elements of ménage (MFM) .

This is my second encounter with a book that was created for Decadent Publishing’s 1Night Stand series and utilizes the services of Madame Eve: a clever background for novellas that are meant to serve as a fantasy fulfillment for just one night.

As an erotic novella, this book works on all fronts.  Character development is not in the foreground, although having two male characters and using “he” makes for a bit of a confusing read. The characters are not experiencing great development or personal growth in a short story, but the appearance of Ian and Todd as two rather cocksure hockey jocks contrasted nicely with the self-assured and determined Natalie.  Even when she has her moments of hesitation, they quickly move in to allay her fears and nervousness and all fulfill their fantasies in one night of steamy pleasure.

The writer has constructed a story that is part fantasy satisfaction and part realistically described action all set within the parameters set by Madame Eve’s agency.  The end leaves us all breathless and waiting to see if this one night will, in fact, be enough.

I received an eBook copy from author for honest review for Full Moon Bites tour. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
