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.

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
The story in theory was good, I liked the idea of three friends who have had feelings for each other forever finally coming together. Hailey has had feelings for Tony and Mark for...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
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.

Samantha Ann King, debut erotic romance author, created a short story with great dialogue. Some of my favorites include --
“I can’t choose between you.” Hailey to Mark & Tony
“We’re talking to her about three-ways and you’re worried about my language?” Mark to Tony
“One of us or both of us. Or…neither.” Mark to Hailey
This is a mfm ménage book, and it's very hot. I have no complaints about the sex scenes - so...more
