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.

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

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

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.
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.

SOPHIE OAK! You evil evil woman. I see how it is, tease me with a free hit and now I'm craving your bloody books like a heroin addict. Good lord woman, what is with these hot sex scenes? I've been hearing Sinful go on and on about Bliss. Who names a town Bliss? Then you fill it with these crazy lunatics. I tell my DH about the people in this town. He looks at me and says, "I bet it was founded by freaking hippies". I get to Founder's Day celebration and find out, the town IS founded by freaking ...more

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

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.

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!

This one was about twin brothers searching for their perfect woman who will allo

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.
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
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
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

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

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!

The most impressive part about this book is how Sophie Oak comes about the dynamic: she created a lovable dominant girl and paired her with a submissive-like Alpha male and an Alpha male. I can not believe I finally read a book where female is essentially toping a v

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
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
Rachel Smith is on the run from a stalker. After one date, Tom decides she is the one, but Rachel (her alias now) knows something is off about him and doesn’t go out for another date. When Tom burns down her house and sends her to the hospital, she knows she has to run. With the help of some doctors and nurses, she heads out with a few alias’s just trying to stay alive. Rolling into Bliss, Colorado on fumes, she take a job as a waitress, living out of her car. But this is just a temporary stop s ...more
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
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

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

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.

Recommends it for: those who love a good spicy romance with lots of sexual tension.
I'm usually not a fan of menages since it has never been my certain cup of tea... but this story is amazingly hot. The story definitely has it's perks and chemistry between the characters was off the charts! I'm actually looking forward to Stefan's story now since he was a rather interesting character from the very beginning, lol. For my first read by Sophie Oak, she certainly opened my eyes. Rachel, who even though has a stalker/killer after her, continues to maintain a bright and bubbly person ...more
Now that was one hell of a ride! Three to Ride is the first in a series about the quirky inhabitants of Bliss, Colorado. This one has a bit of lovin' between twin cowboys and a feisty heroine, some very tender moments, action and suspense, and some great lol scenes. I loved all of the characters in this: grumpy-bear Max, charming Rye, and a very courageous Rachel. The interplay between the three was just so honest and real. Now, don't get me'll need to suspend your s ...more

This book was fantastic.The first chapter just grabbed me and as someone who has always feared the creepy date gone wrong, I really could put myself into her shoes. The story was so thrilling.

The sex is crazy hot, the heroine is someone you can really love and root for not some vapid bimbo like you get in some books.

The best part about this book, though, is it introduces you to Bliss, Colorado. I am ready to move there now! A hedonistic, supporting community nestled in the mountains of CO fille
This is a great story and a great start to the Bliss series. This story gives a good intro to the town of Bliss as well as tell the story of Rachel and the twins, Max and Rye. Max and Rye have always shared women but during some rough times they decide to not share and then Max meets Rachel. Rachel is on the run from a stalker and is skittish about getting involved with Max but falls for him and finds she can't run this time. She also finds that she has feelings for Rye and has to deal with the ...more
Good book. Quick read. Makes me want to move to Colorado to find my own twin brothers.

Will definitely read the rest of this series.

A friend recommended me this book. After reading a short story from the same series, which I didn't like, I decided to give it another go.
It's a good thing my friend warned me to read this without my red pen in my virtual hand. At the beginning especially, I had a hard time not to roll my eyes and abandon the story.

But here's the thing. The plot is actually decent. The characters actually have a few layers and a few hang ups. The heroine is actually a strong person who stands her ground. The ch

This was a terrific read! I love everything about this series. Lexi Blake makes me wish for a place just like Bliss, Colorado. The quirky town with all it's fun-loving, misunderstood people and the way they accept each other and bind together in times of need. Every story in the series is unique and pulls you in from the beginning. Love, lust and danger lurks all around. The characters are easy to fall for. Hot, domineering, alpha males and their independent yet compassionate women that throw th ...more

“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.”
“Those big green eyes were even bigger than usual as she stared at the two of them. For a moment, she looked like a kid who’d found the last cupcake on the planet.” 4 likes
