For some reason, I find myself rereading this book every so often, even though it's not great! It's good, and it's quite steamy. It's also nice to see what happens after a poly threesome decides to make it work. Or not, as seen in this book. On the one hand, I understood why Catherine was upset - two husbands, yet she seems to spend a good amount of time alone. Why doesn't she work? In this day and age, how many young women want to stay home and do nothing while her man (men) go out and earn a l...more

My one of my most favorite books from Maya. It pulls at your heart and make you want to cry and scream for the heroine. Don't worry though everything ends up just right.

I can read this one over and over again and never get tired of it.

You know how Pablo Picasso kept on making these painting of weeping women? I feel like MB keeps a picture of one of those right by her puter as she writes her novellas.
Make. Her. Stop.
Enough with the weepy heroines.

What a quick yet adorable reading!

Married to two men aren't supposed to be this lonely, but that's what Catherine felt. Logan and Rhy are always busy with their works and somehow starts relationship with Cat through phone calls. Until their anniversary. Abandoning Cat in restaurant all alone and canceling their holiday together? Cat's had enough. This time she'll no longer waiting for them. She'll gone. And Logan and Rhy will fight their way to get her back.

One of the sweetest story I read so...more

4 Stars.


Stay With Me it's another great book by Maya Banks as per usual, but in this case Maya takes us to a different journey and a different type of marriage. A menage marriage. And OMG wot amazing journey this was. I loved it.

In this book Maya present us with a story of a menage marriage, and how much complicated can be than your average marriage. I loved the story, the plot and the love scene, Omg they were so so hot.

If you are a big fan of Maya Banks or a lover of a menage books you won't...more

One of my first Maya Banks reads and I still love it. It's a story about three people in a committed relationship and what happens when life gets in the way of what should never be put on the back burner. Catherine has spent the last few years being stood up or being tag teamed by her husbands (where one goes on a date with her and the other is free to do work). She has been miserable and she finally snaps when they stand her up on their anniversary when she was to inform them of their pending f...more

It has been month's since Catherine has spent any kind of quality alone time with her husbands and even longer since she could remember being so blissfully happy. Tonight she shares with them the news that will take their dynamic relationship to the next level. It will be the start of a new adventure that will require them to put their business on the back burner to focus on their marriage. The plan was simple enough and Catherine had made all of the reservations and arrangements, so all they ha...more

This book was just ok. I was really looking forward to reading this one because it was a different take on the menage story. Instead of coming in on the part of the couple's story when their relationship was just starting we come in on the middle where it's on the verge of ending.

I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I expect too much from my taboo or erotic reads. For a romance I expect likable characters for the leads, characters that even if I don't agree with what they do that at the least I'll...more
Charlene
This was a bit different take on a menage. Instead of one coming together, we have an established poly marriage that's falling apart. Catherine is at the point of leaving Logan and Rhys, her 2 husbands, because they've been so caught up in work that she's become virtually invisible. An anniversary trip to Jamaica is cancelled, and that seems to be the last straw.

I liked the idea here, and enjoyed the book for the most part. It was a little too high on the sweetness scale for me though, and I th...more

Can I just start off with what complete idiots Logan and Rhys are!!! I mean really? You take your wife for granted - constantly - and the one time she lets you know that she won't stand for it again...you mess up your chance to prove to her that she comes FIRST. Way to go. Way. To. Go.

Okay, they absolutely loved their wife...which is why I guess it was easier for her to give them multiple chances to fix their marriage. They loved and adored her and simply wanted the best for her. They knew what...more
Eliza
Very sweet and hot book. I found it a nice change up from the normal set up of most romance in that these characters were already in a relationship when the book began.

Jess
This was another great one by Banks. It made me tear up in alot of places and I felt genuinely bad for all 3 of the characters.

logan, rhys, and cath.
a menage marriage. i think it is the first one i've read under the legal status.

i almost believe that this is a part two of some series. cause this nonconventional relationship wouldnt make sense if we dont read the initial reason.

but well, it explained a little in the storyline tough.

1. cath, she is a strong woman. she knew she deserved better. and i like her pov of this whole neglecting cath problem. but it would be better if she stands more firm on her feet, proving her...more

This was a nice read. Most wives can relate to feeling like second fiddle to their spouse's business and Catherine's case it's twice as bad. She has two husbands and they co-own their company so they are both work-a-holics who have emotionally abandoned her and travel all the time.

On their 5th anniversary, they forget their dinner reservations where she was going to tell them she is pregnant. Then, they call to tell her they have to cancel their trip to Jamaica they were supposed to leave on the...more

Catherine Cullen-Wellesley is devastated when her husbands forget their date to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary, thus also ruining the surprise she had for them. At least they still had their upcoming two week vacation to Jamaica where they would have some much needed time uninterrupted. When Logan and Rhys postpone that to jet off on a last minute business trip, Catherine has to face the facts that her marriage is in serious trouble. Desperate for some time to think, she decides to go...more

In the end it seemed like typical Maya Banks. So overall I liked it. It was an enjoyable quick read. I didn't like that Cat gave in to Logan and Rhys so quickly early on, but I figured that she had gone 3 months and those hormones were a-flowin'. She did put her foot down at other times and some of her problems were her own making. Yes, the guys felt like that magic wick should be the answer to all and at some points it seemed to be. They did diss her once again and you knew it was coming. It ad...more

I have a serious weak spot for Maya Banks books. I'm not sure what is going on with them or whether there are drugs sprinkled throughout them. I also have a thing for menage books and this fulfilled all my requirements.

The story follows Catherine and her two husbands Logan and Rhys. Catherine eagerly awaits them to join her for dinner for their anniversary but they stand her up. When they finally call it is to cancel their island...more

One of my very, very favorite tropes in romance is one where the hero (or in this case, heroes) screws up BIG TIME and I know for sure that there is going to be some groveling. I loves me some hero groveling. LOVE IT! So when I read the description for Maya Banks' Stay With Me, I knew I would love it:

Getting her back will be the toughest deal they’ve ever negotiated.

On the night of her fifth anniversary, Catherine Cullen-Wellesley intends to break the news to the two men in her life. She’s pre...more

Maya Banks is seriously one of my favorite, go to, authors. I totally dig her polyamorous themes.
*********************************************************************************
Catherine has been married to Ryhs and Logan for 5 yrs today. She makes plans with the guys to have dinner for their anniversary at which time she will surprise them each with a pregnancy test showing that she is in fact pregnant, 3 months. After the anniversary dinner they were to leave the next day for a vacation in J...more

I was so disappointed with this story. The story had so much potential but was so poorly executed. It's about what happens after Happily Ever After. Catherine is all alone since her husbands rather spend time building their company than to pay any attention to her. After they miss their 5 year anniversary dinner and cancelling their Jamaica trip, she decides to go alone with thoughts of leaving them forever.

I just never felt that Catherine really wanted to leave them. She gave into them so easi...more

Cat is upset that her husbands forgot their anniversary once again. She is really upset because she was going to tell them she was pregnant right before they all boarded the plane to Jamaca for a two week stay.

When business gets in the way again, Cat decides she will go on the trip herself. Logan and Rhys won't even miss her. She will have time to think about if this relationship they are all in is worth getting her heart broken again and again.

Logan and Rhys both come from poor backgrounds and...more
Judith
A woman with two husbands, not an unsual theme or arrangement in a number of Banks novels, is the foundation for this story. Married and deeply in love with both her men, Catherine is waiting at the agreed-upon restaurant for them. She is waiting to give them a 5th anniversary present, namely news that she is expecting a child. They don't show up--business complications have taken priority. Not a new phenomenon in this troubled relationship. And so the story goes from there. As always, Banks' wr...more
LaFleurBleue
I liked the fact that this book relates to the "after", when heroes are married and should be living happily. Except sometimes some crisis happen and here the reader is directly put in the middle of it.
Unfortunately there are quite many shortcomings : most of the references to the business developed by Logan and Rhys do not look realistic at all. Rhys always seemed to be a kind of second-best and supporter for Logan, while not really standing on his own two feet and not being a full partner in t...more
Tawnya
Catherine started out the book with a straight strong backbone when Rhys and Logan were ignoring their relationship with her in favor of their business. She did seem to waver in making the men pull their weight, but after a life threatening situation she finally made them tow the line.
Keri Anne Tabor
It's more of a 3.25 book, but I can't give it the full 4 stars.

It's not that it's a bad book, it just lacked depth that I had hoped for. There was so much more potential to make these two men fight for her.

Hot sex.. Not blushing hot sex but still steamy.
Jennifer Gilliland
I think this book should be called The Abundance of Orgasams. That's basically all it talks about. 2 guys 1 girl and 1000 orgasams. A little bit of a love story, lots of rough sex. A bit over the top but slightly entertaining.
Kat Witmer
This was an ok read. I had a hard time getting into the sex scenes, although they were hot as hell, I found myself still pissed at Logan and Rhys for the neglect of their wife. I feel Cat let them off the hook WAY to easily especially the second time around!! Then in the end she took on some of the blame and I felt like she had absolutely NOTHING to be sorry for!!! She had been neglected by her husbands for months, even years maybe so for her to say that she was sorry just didn't sit well with m...more
Ashley
Tried and true romance plot - don't know what you've got until it's gone, or threatens to leave anyway. The twist in this one is there are 2 husbands and 1 wife. Both are workaholics who have let their relationship go. I didn't really buy into their change, and it did prove to be short lived. I wish there was more background on how they all got together and how it worked well before the downhill slide. I wish the wife had stood up to the husbands sooner, and more firmly as well. I did like her h...more
