I was in the mood for a spicy, fun and easy read and that is exactly what I got!

This is the first book about Bliss, Colorado. A sexual sanctuary, where all kinks are out in the open. I absolutely adored this quirky town and all its crazy inhabitants. I would recommend leaving your sense of reality behind, and dive into the spicy craziness of this series. I will definitely read on! It will be my go-to "relax my brain with some yummy book candy"-series.

I really like menage stories and have read some good ones but this was one of those that just did not do it for me!!

The characters irritated me...the hairy nudists, the alien thing, the little town of Bliss and it's occupants, the instant falling in love, which just did not ring true for me....but that's just my opinion.

I know that there are a lot of readers who enjoyed the story but I was not "grabbed"!!

I will probably read the next book in the series and hopefully it will do something more for

Okay...totally didn't know if I could handle this one. Ms. Oak has presented two delicious twin cowboys for us to fall head over heels for in this book. And these delicious twin cowboys like to share. (My husband is a twin...didn't know if it would be too much of an ick factor for me.)But I got an ARC copy in my hands and wasn't about to not read it, possible ewie factor be damned.

I was pleasantly surprised, as I was introduced to Max and Rye (short for Ryan) and really got to know them as peopl

Who would've thought that I would one day be reading and reviewing an erotica? And an M/F/M erotica, at that?

And who would've thought it would be A Court of Thorns and Roses triggering that urge deep inside me? I mean, come on, surely you've noticed the oozing hotness of Tamlin and Rhysand and imagined yourself sandwiched between them? Surely, I' m not the only one thinking of such a thing?!

From hot faeries to sexual cowboy twins with seemingly large, hot, humongous AND throbbing "members"...

A feisty young woman on the run from a stalkerish cop/ex-boyfriend lands in a small, quirky Colorado town (Bliss). The town is filled with colorful characters and a liberal attitude. And two smokin' hot twin brothers--Max and Rye Harper. Max and Rye own a ranch where cranky Max is a sort of "horse whisperer" and charming Rye is the town sheriff. Max and Rye are looking for the perfect woman to share and make their wife without much luck, until they spot the town diner's sexy new waitress. Almost ...more

loved it!!! I must say it's not often that I pick up an erotic romance that has a great story, spicy love scenes and quite a few LMAO moments. It was so good, I'm off to read book #2 in this series Two To Love.

I have clearly lost my marbles! Anyone who knows me, knows that I avoid ménage like the plague. But for some reason I was really craving a m/f/m where the men do not touch. So this just worked for me even though the two men were brothers. I still really liked Max more than Rye in the end.

I really liked the ménage plot here; the sex was HOT and I was perfectly ok with the brothers wanting to share Rachel!! There was no jealousy or angst between them once they became a ménage. My only issues were

I LOVED this story. The interaction between the heroine and the twin, yes I said TWIN, hero's was great. There were so many times when I laughed out loud and actually snorted (I don't snort). The love scenes were HOT and there was a villian that was truly evil. The secondary characters were great too and I am going to start reading Callie's story now and hope soon there will be Stephan's story. I wanted this story to go on and on. I live in Colorado now and am ready to move to Bliss, Colorado.


4 1/2 stars! A fun, hot, emotional story set in the quirky town of Bliss.

This book sort of reminded me of the craziness on the classic show Green Acres, but with a lot of steam and nakedness. Max and Rye, twins with such different personalities but each one delicious in his own way. Rachel is strong, sassy, sexy and willing to take them both on. Wow!! Lots of laughs, great supporting characters and a little bit of suspense. I can't wait to go back to Bliss for another visit.

As I’m just getting into the ménage erotica, I’m starting to get the feeling that authors think that only Colorado cowboys like to “share their toys”. Maybe they think they’re the only kind of guys that are man enough for the task, or they’re like me and firmly believe that a man in a good pair of wranglers and can ride a horse is just too sexy to pass up.

Whatever, the case I’m one satisfied reader. The identical twins Alex and Ryan are finger-licking good! Alex has a sour mean boy attitude that

I liked the town, LOVED the brothers! A fun book in which you will find very well-hung males all over town...I should totally move to Bliss, CO. Towards the end I was somewhat skipping pages. Still, I loved the characters and the menage aspect is done well.

A sexy sheriff that’s dominant in bed and a rugged, surly horse trainer that is surprisingly caring and sweet. Both wanting to take care of the same woman. At the same time. Oh, and did I mention that they were twins? Twins! Yes, please.

Having already been drawn in by Sophie Oak’s writing style and larger than life characters in the Texas Siren’s series, I was eager to read more by this fantastic author…and Ms. Oak did not disappoint in the l

There is just something about the way Sophie Oak pulls a naughty story together that just gets me going! There are only so many story lines that an author can make up that make them seem unique, not just the same story with different characters. Although all of the stories I have read by this author have similar elements, they are just different enough that I can actually read them back to back without getting bored!

Sexy and fun read, this is what to read by someone who is a beginner to menage ;) I wish this was my first menage story. The writing's good, story is believable, the chemistry's there...easy to read.
I only find it a bit rush for the twins, especially Rye, and Rachel to connect.
One blind date later and a year of torment, Rachel Swift is on the run. After repeated efforts to keep her stalker at a distance she has no other recourse than to change her identity and flee.

A year later Rachel ends up in Bliss and she has caught the eye of town terror Max Harper. Max has a reputation for his temper, but when it comes to Rachel he has been on his best behavior. Growing up he had always planned to share a woman with his twin and town Sheriff Rye Harper, but after years of their

I was very nervous to read this book. I had never read a ménage book before and didn't think I would like it, but some GR friends encouraged me to give it a go. They assured me this was ménage KA style and that I would love it. They were right! This was a fun, fast, sexy read. I loved the town of Bliss and all the crazy residents. Max, Ryan and Rachel were awesome. The whole twin brother thing put me off at first, but as I got into the story, I was surprised how well it worked. The three of them ...more
Bliss,, what an idyllic setting for a menage! This is definitely a good one. Rachel is a spitfire...she does not take any crap from these two guys...and best yet, they LOVE that about her! She's very proud, very independent, and very strong. Max and Rye...oy. I'll take these two over the Falladay twins (Cameron and Chase from Wicked Pleasure and Only Pleasure) ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. I thought this plot was very good. Interesting how these girls always seem to start out as waitresses ...more

One of the best menage books I have read! This is the second book that I have read by this author. The other was good as well, but this menage just really... worked.

I mean, come on... TWINS!

Drool-worthy twins!

One puts on the charm, the other really brings the heat.

Of course, this one also has a suspense factor, but honestly, with exception to the end, who cares?????

As for the epilogue, I really wish we got more. I know, I'm a greedy little poot, but to know me is to love me!
3.5 stars

I usually prefer my menage stories to have an M/M component...but sexy identical twins work too.

Rachel shows up in Bliss Colorado and Max is immediately smitten. So much so that he decides to try a solo relationship instead of involving his brother Rye. They usually share their women and hope to find the perfect lady to start a triad family.

There is some major insta-love here and the plot had some flaws but all in all not bad.

This book had the special distinction of being unrealistic and predictable all at the same time.

As Liz recovers from her stalker attack at the hospital, the police try to convince her to work with them to catch her stalker, who is a police officer. They vow to protect her. The doctor who treats her covers for her and lies to the cops, saying she'll be held for 48hours, but he is really trying to help her get out of town.

Three to Ride is my second Sophie Oak book, and I am fast becoming a Sophie Oak fan. In Three to Ride, Rachel is on the run from a crazed, dangerous stalker. When she runs out of money on the run, she stops in Bliss, Colorado and takes a job as a waitress in the quirky, artistic town. The town is very open to those with unconventional lifestyles, including artists and nudists. Rachel is attracted and drawn to Max, a local horse trainer, and they soon develop a relationship. Rachel heard that Max ...more

Monica's Review

Three to Ride by Sophie Oak is an inspiring book of how far strangers help to keep a defenseless woman safe, when no one could help her. Rachel is a beautiful young woman that has had terrible luck with a young man that has been stalking her. Rachel fears for her life and all she can think about is running far away, anything in order for him not to find her, and leave everything behind. Guys can be jerks sometimes. How can they think that after one date they own someone? Everyone

I thought this book was so much fun to read, mostly because Max and Rye really didn't know what they were getting when they met Rachel. She didn't make things easy on them, but then again the guys didn't make things easy on themselves either.

I loved Rachel beating down on Max, with flowers he brought for her, in front of the whole town, because he did something stupid. I loved it more that Rye was there to see it and that is what tipped him over the edge. I also loved how when Rachel finally dec

A beautifully well crafted story that I would recommend to anyone that doesn't have a problem with a menage story.
What makes this a great story is Sophie Oak's ability to create funny and lovable characters and she doesn't stop with the three main characters, but creates a whole community of quirky characters to breath life into the small town of Bliss. With nudists, a paranoid alien-abductee and a hen-mother ruling the local café the Harper brother's preference for sharing a woman doesn't seem

This is the first book I have read by Sophie Oak. There was a lot that I liked about it and some, not so much.

Firstly I must say this author certainly knows how to heat up the page. The sex scenes were some of the best I have read in a long time. Having a heroine that was not afraid to take control was an added bonus, for me.

I really enjoyed the environment and characters Sophie created and the story flowed well.

The not so good. I am not a fan of the insta love thing and felt things ha

“Max felt his eye twitching. He knew he should be yelling, but his limbs wouldn’t move. This was what it felt like to be paralyzed with rage. Yes, he was going to do it. He was going to finally go utterly psychotic and prove the whole town right. He was going to walk over to those arrogant assholes and take the first one apart. Then he’d beat the other one to death with his dead brother’s leg. He looked to his own brother. Rye would save him from his towering rage. Rye would have calming words. Rye would talk him down.
Rye’s face was red as he pointed at the young cowboys. “You, kill now, Max.”
