Hmmm... This was a sizzling hot read but I can't say it's my favourite book in the "Quinten, Montana" series, the main reason being that Jasper and Sarah felt like teenagers, even at twenty-four; only Jace came across as an adult.

Because of that, I couldn't really feel the connection between these three characters, deep down I wasn't convinced their menage would work in the long run. Despite the promises to the contrary, my gut told me Jasper and Sarah were probably just experimenting, since th
I always appreciate characters that come across authentically, and Cameron Dane has pulled that off in this novel. Set in contemporary times, this novel is a continuation of a series involving people who are connected to the Hawkins Ranch and the community surrounding it. The heroine is the receptionist for the local sheriff's office and is currently living with one of the deputies, the best friend of her brother Hunter who has been deployed to the Middle East. They are housemates although both ...more

I loved returning to Quinten, Montana for the story of Sarah, Jasper and Jace. There was so much going on in conjunction with their story that kept my mind intrigued -- 2 murders, a rich entrepreneur, a psychic, and Jasper's evil brother. The author incorporated one of my favorite things: series continuity. It started with the first scene which is tied to a comment in a previous book, Ride , and continued with the appearances of other characters from the series.

This story involves a m/m/f relat
Well my first completed book of 2011.

I have really mixed reviews about this one. The plot was strong and the sex sizzled. I just couldn't get past Jasper's poor grammar. "ain't" just really got under my skin and would take me out of the story. I don't think it was necessary.

The who done it was strong and I really didn't know who it was until the end.

I'm just not big on murder suspense. If you like hot menage, m/m or murder suspense then this may be the book for you.


In this book, we find Sarah Tennison living with her roommate and protector Jace Maxwell while her brother is overseas in Afghanistan. She's having a love affair with Jasper Simmons, a cowboy from a nearby ranch. Jace is a sheriff's deputy, and Sarah works at the sheriff's office, so when the body of a local woman is found, they are both caught up in the mystery, as is Jasper, who actually is present when the body is found.

This book is filled with hot sex of the m/f, m/m, and m/m/f varieties as
2.0 Stars

In the sixth book of the Hawkins Brothers series, Jasper and Sarah are in a committed relationship and recently had sex for the first time. Sarah is attracted to and has had fantasies about a three-way with Jace (Sarah's roommate and designated stand-in for her older brother). Jasper loves Sarah but admits that he has been attracted to a man in his past. When Jace discovers that Jasper and Sarah have started a sexual relationship, he is jealous of their intimacy. Jace is attracted to an
Camerone Dane is one of my favorite authors and very much a guilty pleasure. With the exception of only one or two other authors I can name rights absolutely the most outrageous and hottest sex scenes. This is the first menage of hers that I've read. It very much follows the "Hawkins Ranch" formula, for example, characters are macho but sensitive cowboys or law enforcement officers. Regardless, I know every time what I'm going to get with Camerone Dane and she's an auto-buy for me.

Quick disclai
The sex was hot but the story was a bit boring.
Just not into threesome's but this is okay~

So the book that I want to talk to you about today comes from a series that has a bit of EVERYTHING. And by everything I mean it runs the gambit from paranormal M/F to paranormal M/M, to contemporary-western M/M and M/F back to paranormal M/M and then just for shits and giggles lets throw in some murder-suspense M/M/F. LOL The series I speak of is The Hawkins Ranch series by Cameron Dane and man can that lady write a smokin' hot love scene. The book I am going to share with you today is the most ...more
Although the sexual aspects of this book were quite titillating I could not get past the fact that the emotional connection between the characters was insubstantial and fake. (view spoiler) ...more
Another solid 4 star read by Cameron Dane. This time a menage between Sarah Tennison, Jace Maxwell and Jasper Simmons. This book had a slightly more gritty feel, which I really did appreciate.

Sarah works at the Sheriffs office as the receptionist and office all rounder really. She's known Jasper since they were both 20, but now they're 24 they are an item finally becoming intimate. Sarah is sweet, caring, loyal and, while a happy person, she worries about her brother's overseas deployment and mi
Not bad, but not fantastic either.
Some elements in the plot felt overseen: the gay cowboys, the bad brother threatening the girlfriend, the cop hero, the guy feeling responsible of his best friend's little sister... However I have to admit that the characters were more personalized than in many erotica and managed to resemble real persons. Problem is I did not care so much about some of their problem. Jace's struggle with alcoholism left me cold and by the way I never managed to be convinced he

My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed:

Deputy Jace Maxwell has been in love with his best friend’s sister for years. Though he can’t lie to himself about his feelings for Sarah Tennison, Jace knows he can’t live without fulfilling his attraction to both women and men. So Jace is determined to watch over Sarah, protecting her from everyone, himself included. Imagine Jace’s surprise when shy cowboy Jasper Simmons slips past Jace’s rad
Surprisingly quite good. Mystery? Not bad; I didn't figure it out until the characters did. There could have been a bit more intrigue, but that's a minor quibble. I liked the characters, although I agree with a lot of the reviewers that Jasper and Sarah seemed younger than they were. It was never explicitly stated that Jace was a recovering alcoholic, and so it came across more like the author was coming down on his drinking from a moral standpoint (I can't imagine that's actually the case, but ...more
What the hell Cameron Dane? Just how is it possible for you to write two menage stories in different series and make them so perfect yet so distinct? If I find a menage book that I like by a certain author, even if its not a perfect 5 star rating, I will usually see if that author has written any other menage stories. Unfortunately the pattern that the author uses in their stories becomes abrasively clear within the first few chapters and I become disappointed and bored.

I avoid menages like the plague. I usually like to focus on just two characters and learn them, enjoy their growth. This is the first book where I can really say that the menage did not take away from the story for me. It seemed genuine. I enjoyed all three characters. Of course, I had a special place in my heart for Jace and the challenge that he was facing. I have not read many books where the monster within was one that is commonly experienced. It was debilitating but not unconquerable, a tru ...more
Ok at first I admit i didn't care about the Sarah part. I just thought it'd be best if she wasn't there at all, but towards the end of the book I felt like each person represented something that one of them needed and they really fit well together.

Another thing I liked was all the twist and turns in the investigation. I hate a mystery where you can pretty much guess who did it while napping. This one gave so many believable suspects that I couldn't figure it out until they did! Yea!

The only pro
I have read exactly two threesome books I really liked, and this ain't one of them. It always falls apart for me because the man falling for the man as the third was not convincing.
Note: I read this book over a year ago and enjoyed it. Today, I got the urge to read it again. This short review & star rating is based on my re-read.

I find I didn't enjoy it as much this time 'round. I must have overlooked quite a bit last time, because there were a few things that niggled at me that I don't remember being bothered by last time. Namely, the disparity between Sarah and Jasper's stated ages and how old they actually seemed to me, and the awkward, sometimes anatomically confus
It's gonna be very short. I loved jasper and Jace's chemistry together but felt it was being overlooked for Sarah's benefit. As much as I hate it when it happens in books about menages, the girl takes a huge part of the story and the two guys are left behind. The only way this book could have had five stars is if Sarah hadn't been in it. I didn't like her personality, she got on my nerves and she always drew attention back to her. Jasper's and jace would have been a better fit or if Sarah hadn't ...more
This was my first book with a MMF menage. It truly opened my eyes to a whole other genre in romance that I had previously been hesitant to read. I thought the characters worked well together and had great chemistry. Cameron Dane's writing style, ability to tell an actual story, and the very HOT bedroom scenes are what I look for in my novels.
Overall it was a good romance story and the mystery was also good the only thing is i felt the story was too long; not that it is a bad thing to have a long story but with long story needs a very connected plot to keeps the reader interested... I don't feel this story had a very connected plot and some parts where so long they started to bore
J.P. Barnaby
This wasn't my favorite book in the series. I didn't really feel an emotional connection with the characters as I did with the others, but it was certainly a fun read. The sex was fun and inventive, and I fouind Jace to be an interesting character. A longer book definitely would have drawn him out more, especially his relationship with Hunter.
I love this series, but this is my favorate book so far. The struggles that tthese three go through are heartbreaking, It was lovely to see the three of them work through it all. To me they showed what ANY relationship should look like and how it shoud work. To find a love like their's would be the best anyone could hope for.
Fiendishly Bookish
3.5 Stars

Fiery hot, Stetsons, sweat and rumpled sheets. This was an intense, exquisitely drawn out read...Dane gets the sexual balance right between Sara, Jace and Jasper developing the tension without devolving into raunchiness which can end up being so common in polyamour erotica.

Good job!
I really loved this book because it just did it for me. the threesome pairing is what I've been looking for such a long time and my favorite author just made it so hott!!

I often found myself like jasper and jace so much I wanted them to be a pairing, so so badly.

Really enjoyed this one.
Well written! A great love story with substance.
Dialogue: Good
Characters: Well developed and well rounded
Plot: There actually is a plot! And it's superior to most books in this genre.
Sex scenes: Enough, well spaced and hot.
Recommended: Yes!
This is my favorite book of the new year. The romance was so sweet. I love watching this trio let down walls to let the others in. It had a very nice pace and kept me wanting more. The only complaint I have is that it ended to soon.
