This story was so short that Harlequin should be ashamed of calling it a "book". The plot was non-existent, the hero and the heroine had no real personality and their falling in love was completely unbelievable.

Why do I even bother downloading free e-books? Theres a lesson to be learned here...
Okay, so maybe the rating was influenced by the fact I read it right after More Than a Man, but compared to that book, this short, fluffy, a bit cheesy, and rushed freebie e-download was a true literary pearl.

My brain needed to relax and unwind, and this little thing provided the right outlet.

A cute, shallow quickie was right what I needed.
This was a free Nook download. It was short but fun. I enjoyed both main characters. The fact that they had history made the story more believable. I did think the final resolution came about rather quickly, but that's to be expected in a novel this size.

FLuff, too brief & pretty lame for a Blaze. Rushed ending sucks. Hero isn't too deep & heroine confesses her luv 1st. No wonder it's free =^2

When a short makes you wish it were longer, the author has accomplished her aim. I enjoyed the plot/characters. Always enjoy a heroine that doesnt back down from fighting for the the love of her matter how alpha he acts. Havent read anything from this author before, but this was a good sampling to make me read more full-length titles by her in the future.
A really short novella that didn't really deliver for me. Eli Murdock is in town for a friend's wedding and hooks up with Tara Swenson again. Not much of a story. But for people who like short steamy novellas then you might like this one. It just wasn't to my taste.

I really liked this. It was light and sweet and free. What's not to like!
I was really surprised with how much I enjoyed this book. I felt the romance was very sweet despite the H/h being extremely young. I know they were probably suposed to be older, but they came across as around 16-18 years old. Although Tara was much more mature, so I was able to connect with her more than Eli.

Eli was very immature, to the point of being TSTL. Especially in the beginning when he was with his buddy Mitch. I admit, I came this close to DNF'ing within the first chapter, but I'm gla
I did not have any expectations on this book and EVEN THEN it still fell horribly short.

For starters, I didn't know or realize that Triple Threat was only 50 e-pages in length. Once I had this realization, I falsely figured that such a short story would be packed to the brim teeming with sexuality and ridiculous scenarios. I couldn't help but assume that the lack of pages would be made up for with good content.

False -- just super-short, unimaginative sex scene(s?), with an increddddibly cheesy a

In my defense, it was free. And short.

But no. Just no.

The story was ridiculously contrived and awkward. If this were a real life couple, they would be divorced in record time. Even by fantasy novel standards, I don't think that this story makes any sense. How does the heroine go from denying any attraction to him to professing love in two days?

Speaking of that, she not so subtly tells him her feelings at least twice, when he doesn't reciprocate, she just gets less subtle. By the third or fourt

The plot is simply: Tara has fancied Eli since they were kids. Eli is deeply involved in his military career and doesn't think there's room in his life for women. Except every time they meet, they end up in bed. And (let's admit it) they hardly put up more than a token effort to stay out of each other's arms!

This was a free giveaway during eBook Week. It's a quick read but it lacks the conflict and drama that really makes a romance good for me -- this is steamy fun with a guaranteed happy ending

Triple Threat is a quick read. It is about two characters who have hooked up in the past and are desperate not to do so again. However there is undeniable chemistry that they cannot avoid. Steamy chemistry is the only thing this book has to offer. While the female lead opens up about her past and her feelings, the male lead does not do the same. In the last chapter the female lead takes a too far out of character turn in the conversation, that left me feeling turned around. I would not recommend ...more

Typical story of Boy Bangs Girl. Boy leaves the very next day and is gone for an extended time. Boy returns and bangs Girl. Boy leaves the very next day and is again gone for an extended time. Boy returns and bangs girl. Boy decides this is all that's needed to establish a long and lasting relationship. Boy declares love for Girl because this is a Harlequin and really, what did you expect? Story ends before the inevitable bitter breakup.

I get that this book was a novella, but it seemed to be cut from a longer version, and it was so disconjoined I couldn't wait to finish it. I think it would of had promise if it had been in longer form, but I didn't get the relationship. There are plenty of short novellas that are just perfect. This is not one if them. Glad it was free on the Nook

TRIPLE THREAT is an entry in the Harlequin Blaze Uniformly Hot series, and the story is very hot. A typical military romance except that the relationship is on again/off again sex only, at least on the part of the hero. The heroine has other ideas and both sets of feelings are explored in this wonderful fast paced story.

This was an interesting short story of about 50 pages (free read).
Eli is a military man striving to make a career out of it, Never wanting to settle down. That was until Tara. They have had several brief encounters in the past but this time it was different...
Aug 06, 2012 Anna rated it it was ok
Just okay for me. A military man keeps coming back to his home town and has one-nighters with a teacher when they attend wedding of mutual friends. The third time they hook up has lasting consequences.

Freebie on Kindle.

Good late night read.
Lee Anne - OMG! It's TOOOOO Cold!
Cute short story about a soldier home for a friend's wedding who hooks up with the same girl....again.....

There's not a lot of story to this, but it is a short story, so it's about what you should expect from a short story.

Just one of those fun reads -- always like to see people get beyond the "brief encounter" stage. We all have people who waft in and out of our lives but this was just a cute story. The price was certainly right!
2 stars – Contemporary Romance

This was just an 'okay' quickie read and an 'okay' way to spend 30 minutes, but not all that memorable. Good thing it was a freebie!
Mar 12, 2012 Chris rated it liked it
For a 50 page novella, it was pretty good. I really wish this had been a full book. I have a feeling that I would love these two characters.
I think i would have liked this more as a true full length book. I get it was novella but it was too short for my liking. Glad it was free.

Less than an hour read but free for nook...and kept me entertained syncing iPods way too late at night!

Cute premise and likable characters but it was too short with a rushed and unbelievable conclusion.

Much too short. I read it in about 10 minutes. I guess I should have read that it was just a short story.

First, let me say this is how I show up at my desk every morning to write. Dahling, I couldn’t possibly write a word unless I was wearing 3-inch heels with a Martini at hand. NOT!!! But it’s so different, and face it, infinitely less scarey than the way I usually work, running shorts and t-shirt with a cup of tea nearby, that I had to put this picture up.
