This one starts out extremely smutty (and gets smuttier) and a little bit funny too. Now how does that happen?

Petite, curvy, slightly rumpled Tessa is an upscale jewelry designer, with her offices in a historic building slated for tear down to make way for some modern condominium development. Tessa is fighting tooth and nail with the developers (Banning & Dunn), resisting with all she is worth over selling her property. While she's doing this, she's also trying to help her coworker and frien

What a fabulously sexy and hot menage story! "Deception" by Jenny Penn is my first for this author, but I'll definitely be on the lookout for more by this talented writer.

Tessa mistakes Ty and Chase for male escorts. Both of them are intrigued and entranced by this pocket Venus who is so different from their normal 'type'. The more time they spend with her, the deeper their feelings grow. But they haven't been honest with her and the longer their 'deception' goes on, the deeper the hurt will be.
Tessa Miller has been a thorn in the sides of Ty Banning and Chase Dunn who have been fighting with her through a lawyer for a year. deciding it is time to take matters into their own hands they show up on her doorstep. Tessa is thrilled by the choices she has before her, Ty and Chase would do really well for what she needs them for but who to choose?

A case of mistaken identities and a flair for living life moment to moment lead the path to a hilarious story. One of my favorite Jenny Penn books,

This is really a 3.5 star book.

Ty and Chase are going to "ambush" Tessa to confront her about her lawsuit against their company. The lawsuit is taking time, and in the construction business, time is money. When they arrive at her door, she mistakenly believes that they are the escorts she hired for a devious plan she's concocted to help a friend. This begins the deception in the book. Ty and Chase, unable to disabuse her of her misconception, begin playing along. During this game, they fall in l

The love story between Tessa, Ty, and Chase is both humorous and intense. The beginning of the novel hooked me with its fast-paced, quirky sequence of events. The rather absurd start gives room to suspense of belief and lets the reader enjoy the ride of these three people falling in love/lust almost immediately and settling for a happily-ever-after only a week after meeting each other.

Tessa, Ty, and Chase have their own unique personalities and they create an interesting balance between the thre

I thought this was a pretty decent menage with an interesting story. It's a nice short read. I didn't have a problem with one of the heroes being in a relationship. tbh...the cheating aspect added a bit to the hotness. That's just me though. I did have a problem with the lack of condoms just because the heroine initially thought they were escorts. I wondered about that and lack of condoms being used at all to be a bit odd. Still, I found this to be an enjoyable diversion if you're a fan

This book is very funny, but most of the book is sex scenes with little story.

However, the story and the characters are quite interesting with some depth. I like the heroine, and how she gets back at Ty when she knows the truth. The conflict solving method at the end of this book is different from other books that I read as it doesn't involve long boring talk at all. (view spoiler)

The sex scenes are too much like sex stories from porn websites.

I am a fan of good threesomes, the story was great and the sex scenes super steamy! Loved it!
Oh boy those two guys can knock on my door anytime!

If you can look over a few things that don't make sense this story is a fun one. Tessa mistakes Ty and Chase, invites them in and suddenly the three of them are having sex. At first Tessa's friends are there, but once the sex starts they aren't and you aren't sure when they left. The sex between them in explosive, all three feeling a connection, but Ty fighting it. But both guys do end up coming back for more. What makes this book fun to read is that while there is a lot of hot sex going on, the ...more

I actually really enjoyed this book. The banter, whether it be between Ty and Chase or Ty and Tessa were hilarious! Poor Ty, always wants to stay in control but doesn't stand a chance against Tessa and Chase! Mild BDSM, some bondage and spanking but nothing hardcore. There are promises of a playroom, but you don't get to see that room in action.

Definitely an easy read. Nothing much in terms of character development or major drama. But it's a erotic comedy, what can you really expect? Nonetheless

Sep 20, 2009 Laura rated it it was ok
I normally read extremely steam romance books with heavy erotica scenes, but this was my first purely erotica book.

The sex scenes were great, but since there was virtually zero plot or character development, it felt like cheap sex.

Not that cheap sex can't be fun mind you, but it doesn't have that same "turn on" effect when I read it.

Probably just me.

I'll try another in the erotica genre, perhaps there are some better ones out there?

3 1/2 Stars! ~ If you like a bit of humour with a steamy anything goes romp, then you'll find these fit the bill. Deception had some roaringly hilarious moments that I'm still chuckling from!

What a cute, hot read! This is a nice, light, raunchy tale of saucy vixen, stubborn property developer and flirty property developer. Don't try and understand or analyze, just enjoy the read!

This was funny. Tessa steam rolls the two guys. Starting a relationship with deceptions isn't good. It ended up with a HEA. Still a good fun erotic read.

Throughout my life, I’ve always been an avid reader. Reading fed my need to dream and fantasize about what could be. As a latchkey kid I’d spend hours at the library earning those shiny stars the librarian would paste up on the board after my name.

I credit my grandmother’s yearly visits as the beginning of my obsession with romances. When she’d come, she’d bring stacks of romance books, the old fa
