How do I begin this review? Wow. This book was well written, very sexy, and had so many elements of truth to it. Be With Me by Maya Banks was only my second novel by this author, with my first being Sweet Surrender. I liked Be With Me so much more than the first book of hers I read. Maybe it was the three hot men, yes I said three! Maybe it was the spunky yet sensitive female protagonist that kept me engrossed. I think it was a combination of ev

I wasn't sure how this book would finally land on me, but I have to say--I really liked it!

Picture the lonely rich girl who befriends the town juvenile delinquents--one is sensitive, smart and self motivated with an alpha side she didn't know existed--another is a "meat head" who is all testosterone and rough around the edges--the other is tender and caring and treats her like a fragile glass doll-- but they are all smokin' hot and totally in love with Reggie. Ten years later, as adults, they r

Total 5-star keeper here. From the first page, Maya Banks had me completely hooked. I pretty much didn't put it down until I finished. It was a very interesting, very well-written (and pretty hot) story.

Though in general this book is considered an erotic romance, I'd probably call it a contemporary alternative romance with erotic scenes because the super hot, explicit sex isn't really the dominant part of the story. It's more about the polyamorous relationship the develops between four long-time

Recommends it for: Fans of menages, and erotic romantic suspense
This was quite a different menage book for me. Usually the ones I've read have the heroes/heroine just establish the menage relationship almost by accident and you get the feeling that they really haven't thought it all out or how it would work, as far a dealing with potential problems of sharing or jealousies. They just get right down to it and maybe afterward start to think about problems they may encounter. Not so with this book. There was lots and lots of angst and talking about if they (the ...more

Why are Maya Banks books so hot? It's not just her skillful handling of menage situations, it's the emotion that underscores the relationships of her characters that draws me to her stories. "Be With Me" is another excellent offering from the queen of menage HEAs.

Regina, or Reggie, has been running from her three best friends for the past year. Ever since a night of scorching sex, she's been unable to come to terms with what she wants, what she's afraid they want, and what society can handle. Bu
I liked this book,but I just need something cleared up for me. What galaxy are these men from?! They are so sweet,I felt like I should get an insulin shot. And all 3 of them being soooo in love with Reggie,they're all willing to share her in a real relationship? Three buddies wanting to be with the same woman at the same time once or twice doesn't tax my imagination,but forever and ever amen,I don't think so.

5 stars – Romantic Suspense/Erotica/Ménage

Wow, this is definitely a 5 star read. Be With Me is the first book I have read by Maya Banks, but it won’t be the last. It’s exceptionally well-written, creative, funny, and sexy and has great dialogue and strong characters. Although the story is about a m/m/m/f ménage relationship, the romance is surprisingly sweet and tame albeit erotic, with a few mildly explicit and hot sex scenes that don’t inhibit the story’s pace or development. All three male ch

I mention feeling connected to the characters in a lot of my reviews. That's something that's important to me. This one didn't quite do it. I was interested in how this unconventional relationship was going to work, but the characters didn't touch me - something was missing and I'm not sure what.
Denise ~The Procrastinating Book Diva~
By all accounts this should have been a good book. It had all of the elements of an excellent menage: bestselling author - check; 3 sexy diverse Heroes - check; a tough yet vulnerable heroine - check; and a history shared by the heroine and Heroes that solidified her relationships with them as individuals and a trio - check, check, check!!! Yet with all of this going for it, it just never came together for me. In fact I found it to be just plain boring!! I struggled to get through it and only fi ...more
I am not normally an erotica reader but found this at my bookstore and was caught. Though the relationships between the heroine and the 3 heros was filled with angst most of the time the actually caring they all had for each other was nice. I defintely had my favorite hero in this one. Not sure if I would seek out other erotica novels but this was a good "first" :).
Um...nah...not for me.

It's an F/M/M/M book and if it was maybe just trying to be sexy and kinky I might have been more ok with it but it's all wrapped up in love and I just couldn't understand how that's going to work on an everyday basis...set in a small town no less....and her being a police officer so in the community's face. What about having family and kids and jealousies??? It addresses some jealousy issues but not enough.

I couldn't get over past the fact that 3 awesome guys could share...

Hutch, Cam and Sawyer were all bad boys from the wrong side of the tracks. Reggie was rich and beautiful and had everything a girl could want growing up. Everything except the love and attention of her parents. She found what she was missing in her three best friends who just happened to be boys. They all loved her. And she loved them back. Eventually they all grew up and those feelings manifested themselves in one night of passion. As in she has sex with all of them at the same time.

So yes, th
This was either a very corny romance novel or a boring erotica. You couldn't go 5 pages without someone saying "I Love You". Most of the characters were flat, the three heroes were like androids walking around repeating the same things over and over . And this great love they feel for the heroine....why do they love her? Who knows. All we know is that these zombie like heroes (3) all love this wimpy girl. Mean while, this wimpy girl runs around whining about how wrong it is to be with 3 zombies ...more
Oh my bring me the fan and the spritising water. This book was so chocked full of male testosterone I wanted to lick it! There I said it I am a bad Minxy. Reggie was a strong female lead, she fought this attraction for most of the book, confused by it even as the men in her life accepted it and came to terms with it. Again three very different men, brothers in life, if not in blood, the organised dominant, the edgy and rough, and the laid back and just downright sexy. She had a man for every moo ...more
Very nice ménage book. Or maybe I should call it a poly lifestyle book because this book was about much more than sex. It is one of the very few books that approached the myriad of issues that would arise with such a life style choice. Each of these men wanted her for themselves and only agreed to share because they knew if they asked her to choose between them she wouldn't and they would all loose her. There were issues of jealousy and how each man thought the others should be treating her sexu ...more
Enjoyed this book much more than another book I read by the same author. However, I wished that the guys fit better together in the relationship. I felt like it was all about Reggie and there was nothing else to seal the deal. I think it was hard for me to picture the whole thing being long-term considering there was still jealousy and things going on.

That being said, I did enjoy the story. And, believe it or not considering the subject-matter we're talking about, there were no sex scenes until

Maybe even 4.5 stars. This book is one of the best done 'multiple partner relationship' books I've ever read. In other books it can be confusing, no one has their own identity, or it's just bizarre. This differentiates between male characters (because it is three men and one woman) and their realistic struggle with sharing a woman. It's also hottttttt when it comes to sex. I liked all the characters, and the background 'killer' story is good. It started a little slow, but I really enjoyed it!
I mean, this was certainly a book that I read.

I'm a big fan of the happy threesome, so it's not that I have an issue with the whole notion of the Happy Foursome, but there was just a lot of language things throughout the novel that irked me. I did appreciate that Maya Banks tried to go beyond just, "SEXSEXSEXXXXXXXXXX" for a M/M/M/F novel. But unfortunately, the stuff that went beyond just sex got occasionally way too possessive/controlling/weird for me.

I was also irked by the whole scene where

Im not sure WHAT I think of this book. I knew it was erotica and have no problem with that but still..... Ok. One woman , with 3 best friends who are all male. Known them since childhood. Now all 3 have decided they are in love with her and want to be her lover. All 3. At the same time. They want her to live with all three of them together in one house which they have built for her. Then they all ambush (to my way of thinking anyway)her and its a menage de quad?) She freaks out afterward and avo ...more

Nov 8: I'm on page 126 and it's as if Ms Banks cut and pasted the dialogue over and over, page after page for one hundred bloody pages. I'm serious. All I'm getting is Reggie saying she can't do this (live with 3 guys), they can't do this, this is insane, she's insane, they're insane...for over 100 pages.

Laura mentioned something about padding in Banks' books and I hoped this wouldn't be the case here but 126 pages of the heroine saying the same thing and the 3 men responding the same way, this

Hot ménage and some really Hot men what more can you ask for in a erotic romance book. Maya Banks is amazing! love her writing. Maya Banks take every woman's sizzling ménage a trois fantasies to new levels with three hot men who insatiably and fiercely love this one woman. Three incredibly diverse, sexy, possessive Alpha males all with a common bond: one feisty, intelligent woman, who doesn't want to admit her feelings for them. There's just the right amount of suspense and danger that creates a ...more
As much as I love Maya Banks this one was a little out of my comfort zone. I mean even the mystery to the story was already solved in my head. I knew who the murderer was but that's beside the point. As much as I love steamy sexy hot books I found it really hard to really get into a story where three guys are willing to share one girl. Two guys I think i could handle but three I guess not. I liked how it wasn't all perfect though because it really gave a sense that it could happen and there are ...more
One woman has been friends with 3 men since childhood, and they never got involved, not wanting to spoil the friendship until… they did. That was one year ago, and she’s been avoiding them since. Now she’s been attacked by someone while on the job as a cop and all three men come to her bedside to take care of her. The plot was decent, the characters were decent and the sex was hot. Menage. I listened to the audiobook. 3/5
Be With me is a smoking hot romantic suspense. Banks positively sizzles with this one. Police officer Regina Fallon is the daughter of an affluent politician, who cares more about his political career than his daughter. With very 'hands off' parents, Reggie was all alone as a child until the day she became friends with three would-be juvenile delinquents (Hutch, Cam and Sawyer). The four became inseparable growing up, and remained very close as adults - that is until the night she had sex with t ...more
Let me start this review by saying that I don't have a stomach for drama. Especially self-made drama that exists or springs to life because people are so hell-bent on putting themselves down, refusing the chance to be happy and feel loved, be pampered, and graced with orgasms one after the other. Yes I made it specific there at the end, because for all her smarts and shyness, her guile and kick-ass attitude, Regina ended up being just one more of the "tormented" romance heroines that just can't ...more

Siccome, ogni volta che leggo Maya Banks e applico i criteri tradizionali, finisco per rimanerne insoddisfatta, cogliendo solo la staticità della trama, l’insulsaggine dei dialoghi e l’assurda superficialità dei protagonisti, ho deciso di tentare con un approccio consigliatomi da altre appassionate del genere: quello onirico.

I have to say ....LOVED IT SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!! There was so much there between all of the characters that I just fell in love with Hutch, Cam, Sawyer and Regina. I was alittle angry at Reggie for not committing to her men but that is where the story really gets involved and deep.....As I read deeper into the story, Reggie became a heroine that I loved to read about. She is what makes me jump up and say "YEA" today.

A cozy romance that just happens to be a foursome.

My Take
Truly this is one of those cozy sort of romances full of smalltown heroes who all get the girl! It's also a bit whiny on Reggie's part with a side dish of melodrama and manufactured events. Drove me a bit nuts.

It does have a different twist to it: the boys would much prefer to each have her to themselves, but none of the others will give her up to only one of them. Banks doesn't dig very deep on this one, hence the cozy…*grin*…!

Meaghan Cooper
Regina spent the past year running from Cam, Hutch, and Sawyer. However, when she finds herself in the hospital after an attack while serving as a police officer, she wakes to find the people she has been running from standing in the doorway. Cam, Hutch, and Sawyer are not going to let Regina run anymore and her injuries from the attack will keep her by their side until they can have a long overdue conversation. But with a killer on the loose time for conversations may run out.
