This is simply one of the best menage stories I have read. It felt honest, real and a little scary too.

What happens when your spouse of ten years tells you they have a fantasy? And that fantasy involves your best friend of more than twenty years?

Watching Grant discover a new part of himself with Cade was amazing. His certainty that this was the right decision at the right time made me want to hug him. He didn't have the caveman reaction to being with another man, as long as that man was his best

I absolutely loved the story and by the end I wanted to know more about the characters and how their relationship worked out. Full-filling each other’s fantasies were Grant's and Vivi's pleasure when it came to sex in the bedroom.

One fantasy however that they secretly kept from their best friend Cade was that they both desired him and wanted to bring him into their bedroom. But insecurities kept Grant from asking him because he was afra

I hopped straight from Inez Kelly’s Talk Dirty to Me to Coming Clean, and WOW. Not only is Coming Clean a hot read, the plot has depth too. Cade, Grant, and Vivi have been friends for years; while Grant and Vivi have been happily married, Cade has been their friend, vacation partner, and dance partner. Cade has an attraction for them both that sits quietly on the burner, but when they leave for vacation, Grant and Vivi talk sex….between the three of them. Cade loves them both, and because he has ...more

Coming Clean by Inez Kelley is my favorite book in the Dirty Laundry series from Carina Press. This story is not just about a husband wanting to fulfill his wife’s fantasies, it’s about crossing lines that once crossed, you can’t go back. It’s about friendship, love and a much deeper connection.

Grant and Vivi are so much in love that they are secure in their relationship and not afraid to share their deepest desires. Grant has been all for fulfilling Vivi’s fantasies until she asks for the ultim

Guest reviewed at Yummy Men and Kick Ass Chicks.

Grant and Vivi have been married for ten years and have been pretty open with their sexual fantasies. Vivi boldly states one night that she wouldn’t mind a threesome with their best friend Cade – and to her astonishment, Grant actually agrees. In fact, Grant considers himself straight but has always had romantic feelings for his best friend. But saying you want to play out this fantasy, and making it a reality are two very different things.

After reading the first 2 books in this Laundry themed series I knew that I HAD to get this book. I read the blurb and thought OH MY that will be hot. It was exactly that but I think the focus of this story is more on how these 3 got to the point of the ménage. I especially loved that aspect of the story. Perhaps it's because I'm usually rather skeptical concerning ménage stories and all the talking and discussing before anything really happened helped me accepting it as much as it did for the c ...more

After reading the first two Dirty Laundry series books I knew I had to read Coming Clean . The first sentence of Coming Clean had me hooked, but even without that it was an excellent start that pulled me right in.

Thought it starts right at the heart of things, and little by little the characters backgrounds are weaved into Coming Clean I never thought it was too fast. I loved that beneath the heat and wittiness there was also doubt and concern.

My biggest problem with ménage in most books is th

WOW. This little novella has successfully left my mouth gaping open. Going into it I wasn’t aware it was centered on a threesome. I tend to shy away from reading other reviews of books on my TBR pile. They tend to cloud my judgment and so I skim to just read whatever rating it was given and then move on to the next blog. I have seen Coming Clean on several blogs getting decently high marks and so when it was sent to me for review I jumped at the chance to read it.

The story is essentially about a

I remember reading snippets of this book - I think it was this one anyway - during chat sessions at Romance Divas dot com. The male/male scenes were....well, YUMMY. And I begged --- BEGGED I TELL YOU --- for more. Sigh.....but it was not forthcoming. (heh heh, forth"coming")

But now, all can enjoy this lovely romp into a couple's life as it begins to include their bestest friend in the bedroom kind of way *wink, wink*. I urge you to buy it and dare you not to read it. This is not Ms. Kelley's pur
This was a short, erotic read. Cade, Grant and Vivi have been best friends forever. But lately Grant and Vivi, who are married, are thinking they might want more than just a friendship with the bi-sexual Cade. Grant is straight as an arrow, but he's becoming Cade-curious. To them, progressing their relationship would just be another form of showing their love. But can they convince Cade?

Despite this being so short, the emotions of the characters were well written. It was easy to feel the insecur

Bow chicka wow wow! Holy crap this book is hot!! It is sensual, and loving, and amazingly erotic! The first page had me hooked. Grant was thinking about how amazing and beautiful his wife was (and is!). I love the scenes between Grant and Cade, and the three of them together was just so romantic and beautiful.

It is a short story of about 115 pgs, but it is totally worth the read. I would love to revisit this "triangle" some day! It is VERY loosely connect to Talk Dirty to Me by Inez K

I had this on my TBR for a few months and finally read it last night. What the hell had I been waiting for?!

Grant and Vivi have been married for years and have always been open and honest about their sexual fantasies. So when Vivi admits she'd like a threesome with Grant's best friend Cade, who also happens to be bisexual, Grant 'comes clean' about his own fantasy involving the same best friend.

I really likied this short story but I wasn't too keen on the ending. Without giving too much away I

I don't generally like menage but this one between Viv, her husband Grant and their best friend Cabe was just so smoking hot that to not like it, wasn't an option at all. The lead into the menage was tastefully done and the entire menage scenes were really organic and the opposite of crude. And the M/M scenes - yum. Yes, yum. And that's a miracle thing for me to say.

I loved this quick read; it's hot, hot, hot. Menage stories are one of my favorites, especially M/M/F stories and even better when the guys have been friends for years but never acknowledged their attraction to one another.

Grant and Vivi have a great marriage but aren't afraid to push the limits. Grant wants to help Vivi fulfill her fantasy of a threesome with their best friend Cade. Cade is bisexual and has secretly been in love with Cade since they were teens. Cade loves to dance with Vivi and

4.5 stars. I really enjoyed it.

Very good sexy short story about married couple Vivi and Grant and their best friend Cade. Vivi has a fantasy of being with Grant and Cade together and Grant has a secret (or not so secret) longing for Cade too (although he struggles with a "bi" or "gay" label - the only male he's interested in is Cade. Cade is openly bisexual and has long had a thing for both of his friends. Even though the book is only 92 pages, there is plenty of character in there for my money

I'm just giving you guys a head's up- this story is firmly in the erotica genre, so there's a lot of sex involved in the story. The pairings in this book are M/F, M/M, & M/M/F, so if you don't like same sex pairings then this might not be the story for you. With that warning in mind, on with the review!

Grant & Vivi have a seemingly perfect marriage. They keep no secrets, they play together well... and they both seem to have a not so hidden desire for Grant's childhood friend Cade. When V

Another quick read in the Dirty Laundry series. While I liked Coming Clean, it didn't draw me in as much as Talk Dirty to Me did, perhaps because we the reader aren't seeing a new relationship build, we're seeing existing relationships change.

Vivi and Grant have been married for ten years and are pretty comfortable with their life. When Vivi reveals a fantasy about Grant's oldest friend, Cade, the old marrieds decide to make this fantasy come true.

Things turn steamy pretty quickly for the trio

Yes, it's a menage. They have been best friends for a long time. So it's about sex when they start but they realize it's more than that.
It was hot and sweet at the same time. The characters are great and although it's a short story, it feels like you are getting to know them. I knew it would be like this. It' s Inez Kelley after all!

If you want to read more from this author, try Turn It Up. It's worth it!

Coming Clean is a short read but boy o boy does it pack an erotic punch. I had read so many great reviews on this book I had to beg/plead with Netgalley to send a copy for review.

I was not disappointed! After Vicki shares with her husband Grant, that she has always fantasized about having a threesome with his best friend Cade they decide to enact this fantasy.

I had my doubts about this book because to be honest, I've never read a menage involving a married couple and the idea of it made me slightly uncomfortable with how I could enjoy this book. But wow. Inez Kelley can seriously write. This novella is insanely full of deep emotion and insight and so much of it just felt "right" for the characters. Which is really the difference between good and bad writing with any menege. These characters and their story just felt natural and because of how stellar ...more
