I really liked this new series.
Gunner, Wes and Garrett were drool-worthy and totally devoted to Gia.
My only complaint was that Gia was obviously soooo beautiful and soooo perfect that every man, woman and child and I'll bet animals too, fell in love with her at first sight and became instantly obsessed with her.
The ending actually was kinda funny instead of being scary. (view spoiler)

Let me just start with I love Dixies’ books and if you like ménage then she is an author for you. I enjoyed Escape From Obsession because it was full of action. ;)

Gia is strong woman who I immediately liked. She didn’t feel sorry for herself after she put herself in a dangerous position; instead she found a job and tried to get back on her own two feet. It was nice to see a female have reservations about committing herself to a ménage relationship. To me it makes it so much more real and I appr

I'm a HUGE fan of Dixie and I always look forward to each of her new releases!!! I LOVED Escape from Obsession!! It has everything that I love about a Dixie Lynn Dwyer book!! It is definitely one of my favorites and I only wish it had been longer because I definitely was not ready to leave Gunny, Garrett, Wes and Gia. Gunny *sigh* I am so looking forward to the next book in this series. I do have to say that I did have one slight problem (which is just a personal dislike on my part) with Gia's ...more

DNF at 48%

Mostly because the plot's too slow. I'm almost half of the book yet they still introducing characters. Very annoying, especially when it's just a short story. I was expecting wham-bam-thank you ma'am, but all I got is introduction on how 'beautiful' the heroine is. Hell.

I will read book two because I'm still curious of this author's writing.

This book probably would have been a lot better if I had read it in paperback or ebook version. Instead i've been listening to the audio versions of this series. The narrator is way below par. A lot of it sounds like a run on sentence. There is Very little change in the voices of the characters which makes it hard to tell who is speaking.

Aside of the poor narrating, the only thing that this series isn't great with is the short amount of time from when they meet to when they start doing each othe

I am a regular reader of the “Ménage Everlasting” erotic romances published by Siren Bookstrand, so when I was offered the opportunity to review this new-to-me author, I jumped in with both feet. A MFMM erotic romance featuring three hot and broody military brothers is just the sort of book I love to read, and I had hoped that Dixie Lynn Dwyer’s “Escape from Obsession” would be no exception.

Today's review is on Escape From Obsession by Dixie Lynn Dwyer

The pages of this book were so H-O-T that my fingers were left burning at the end. Though the odds that three, gorgeous, ex-commando, brothers would fall for the same woman are pretty slim, would you deny yourself such magnificent, glorious, and superb men? I certainly wouldn't! And sure, as a therapist, I feel that there wasn't enough attention placed on the trauma that the Heroine had

I was contacted and given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I fell in love with the McCallister boys. There is just something about a soldier that makes my heart beat a little faster and gives me a flutter in my gut. Might be because I married one. ;)

Gia is an amazing person. She didn't listen to her gut in the beginning but when it came to it she ran. I understood her fear of men and relationships. Multiple partners is not a relationship that some people can handle. I love h

Here we have the story of another petite bombshell. She also has a killer body. She is traumatized. She had a bad relationship with a real big time man in New York. This man was a thug. He has a boss that wanted to be with her too. He was the big shot businessman. Be also was very bad. She runs to safety. She changed her name. She got self defense classes. She became attracted to three different men there. She gradually comes out of her shell. Not a bad storyline so far. Now the men, are totally ...more

Amazing story, as always. I loved the characters and the plot. There is something that is just very basic instinct about Dixie's stories. Many women would love to have a man (or men) who are totally devoted to them, that would do absolutely anything to protect them. Dixie always gives us the perfect damsel-in-distress while still making her an essentially strong woman. And of course, the hero is what every woman wants in a man.

In Escape from Obsession I like how the men where given three totally
The moment Garrett McCallister sets eyes on Gia Marie Giselli, he is caught hook, line, and sinker. Gia however is still healing her wounds from an unhealthy relationship that took a shocking turn and despite her attraction to Garrett, she is not comfortable dating.

Football assistant coach Wes McCallister can't believe his luck when meeting Gia, he wants her and goes out of his way to find an excuse to spend time with her. Texas Ranger Gunner "Gunny" has heard quite a bit about Gia through his b

Better than I first thought

At first I was a bit skeptical of reading this book, because the way I read and understood the synopsis was a little misleading...heroine runs from a menage relationship straight into another?? So I put it on my to read list and debated. I have not read a book by Ms. Dwyer that I did not like, so I finally decided to take the plunge. Now I am glad I did. The book is completely different than I initially thought, and has an excellent story line. The characters are well

Another great book

I love a book that flows so well and you don't get lost in over the top details that seem to be repeated sometimes more than once. This book has Great plot with a great story, great characters, and plenty of hot sex. That is all one needs.
