Sharing Hailey (Lovers and Friends #1)
Hailey Anderson's deep, dark secret? She's been madly in lust with her overprotective brother's two best friends for years. Gorgeous woodworking artist Mark Allen and sexy doctor Tony Adamo have no idea they star in her fantasies every night.
After a nasty breakup with her abusive boyfriend, Hailey's looking for a little distance. Headed for a two-week Hawaiian vacation wit...more
The rest of this has slight (maybe) spoilers and definitely NSFW words…
The biggest compliment I have for this book is that there are far less sex scenes than I th...more
1) Slut. I don't have a natural aversion to the word but even I have my limit. I got up to ten and then I just gave up. There might or might not have been more, but I'd rather not go back and check just how the main character thinks herself a slut for loving two men. Loving in this context references to the emotion, not the act--though, there were the acts too. Speaking of which...
2) I've read my share of bad erotica; I really didn't need to add...more
I fell in love with the characters from the beginning. Hailey is successful and beautiful, but a bad past relationship shows her vulnerability. Tony Adamo is a gorgeous pediatric doctor with a down- to-earth personality. M...more
This is an intense book. I was on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. I cried, I laughed, I cheered, I stressed. Name it, I did it. All because of this book.
Hailey has been in love with her brother’s two best friends for years. But she thought they always thought of her as a little sister. The boys finally decided to stop waiting for her to pick one of them and share her. Meanwhile, her ex-boyfriend, who is an abus...more

I read about 60% then skimmed the rest. Just a few reasons why I give it a low rating...
1. The lead character Hailey all of a sudden has a Texas drawl. I do not remember that from the beginning. Yes, she is from Texas but the y'all just appeared out of nowhere later in the story. Consistency is key.
2. We don't really know much about the secondary plot, the one that doesn't involve sex, until about halfway in. There should be more backstory and build-up. Not just all o...more
I liked the book - it was a sort of paradise. If you don't count the maniac ex-boyfriend. It was totally hot but also dealt with some really hard stuff like abuse, violence in a relationship so it's not an easy read. Hailey went through a lot figuring out that she was indeed a victim of violence, I imagine it's a fact hard to accept because your own boyfriend who you thought you lov...more
I just couldn't buy into this relationship. It just did not feel natural to me or all that believable. These guys are just too perfect and understanding and I just don't buy it.
Another issue I have is the actual sex scenes. They take place so quickly. You blink and it's done. I would have liked to see a bit more that way I could have connected with the characters.
This book had all the makings to be amazing. I loved the premise and the characters are likable and I enjoyed the authors writing style but what let the book down for me was Hailey kept hinting the she wanted Mark and Tony to get together as well and it never happened and it was such a let down and spoiled my enjoyment of Sharing Hailey.
The serious issues surrounding domestic violence added some weight to the story. But I'm not amused by m/f/m stories always featuring abuse. It's as if writers imagine readers require badly abusive ex-boyfriends as justification for a woman being in a subsequent relationship with two men. Why can't she just have two men?!
Outside of the aforementioned gravity, which gave some welcome depth to this, Hailey being gorgeous but not knowing it was sickening, the long drawn out and unexciting sex...more
This was a very good story. I liked Hailey, Mark and Tony and their story was interesting and had some unexpected elements in it. This is the first book I've read by this author and based on this I'd be willing to try more of her work in the future.
Hailey is a grant writer in Albuquerque. Her parent where killed years ago and her and her brother, Jake, are very close because of that loss. Hailey has been in love with Jake's best friends, Mark & Tony, for years but could never choose...more

Thank god for this trip to Hawaii. A chance to thaw out and a great opportunity to dump Daniel and get away! Even better? Hailey spends the night at Mark's and then all three best friends fly together to join Hailey's family.
It's an unexpected bit of paradise. Even if there is a snake in the grass.
This was good! Yes, there is some threesome action, but not nearly as intense as you might...more
In Sharing Hailey, Samantha Ann King gives us an excellent story that begins with lust and sizzling sex, but later includes suspense, drama, and love. Mark and Tony are both highly successful and sexy hunks. Life-long buddies, they realize they are both in lust with Hailey Anderson, the younger sister of their best friend, Jake. She secretly feels the same about both of them, and has for years, but can’t pick one over the other. Besides, she believes they think of her as a little sister. These...more

This book surprised me... When you think of ménage books... You pretty much know there is that hotness smut factor... But most of those types of books never have a real story to it... Just scenes between the smut... Lol. Well this book was just amazing! Had a very gripping and real story with it! Of course the hotness is there, but it was real...you could really believe the intimacy between Haley, Tony and Mark. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to read this book. It had some great drama bu...more

Some people will look at this review and wonder why I gave it five stars when I am usually such a stickler for grammatical errors and editing snafus, but the well rounded story here left me in a very forgiving state. It was beautifully crafted and the characters made sense and their relationships and their arguments made sense. There was not an issue that was left uncovered, because despite many happily-ever-after romance books about unconventional relationships there are always...more
A good menagé is hard to find...and finding two good men to have said menagé is even harder. So Hailey not noticing the affections of the two fine men that have practically been following her around these past couple of years is a little hard to swallow (teehee, pun totally intended there). Them being best friends who want to share her is even harder to believe, so I found I had to talk myself down when things just didn't seem believable. I kept having to remind myself that this was, i...more
