It seemed ideal --two months at a writers' retreat, surrounded by kindred souls. But Bettina Boothe wasn't prepared for how long eight weeks truly was. Or that she would have to open up and reveal the most secret places in her body and soul.
Fortunately, her fellow authors do not share Bettina's self-consciousness and begin to draw her out of her shell. One in particular--A...more
I never intended to make this such a long review, so I'm sorry it is. But I liked the book so much that I wanted to bring forth the well done descriptive images Eden paints for us so you know it's not just great sex she writes. So here goes!
Oh...My...God. Talk about hot smokin' sex! At times I felt like not even a dive in the Arctic Ocean could cool me down!
I was a little skeptical with starting this book. To be honest, I was scared. I've never read a b ...more

Very unique and hard to label.
The novel was aptly titled "The Lovers" and it's fascinating how such a simple title could convey a host of suggestions. I loved the location and how Ms Bradley set the pace of the story. It's some sort of retreat in the writers' club where Bettina is a member of, and after 2 years of therapy she finally got out of her shell and traveled from Seattle to California to join her fellow writers, whom she only interacted with onli ...more
Bettina Boothe is a reclusive author that doesn't get out much. Most of her contacts on virtual and most of her conversations happen online. She is invited to an author's retreat and decides that, for once, she is going to brave the world and go do something. At the retreat she meets Audrey and Jack and sparks fly....in every direction imaginable.
The story was a little too simplistic for me to rea ...more

First, let me say that I went into reading this book thinking it would be the same old, same old. I was almost immediately surprised by the depth of the emotions written and the quality of the writing. I r ...more
First of all, I didn't know it was a lesbo book! The cover was so pretty so I bought the book (it wasn't this cover, it was the UK version I think). And the blurb didn't mention anything about lesbo love or orgy or whatever. So hell yeah I'm pissed when I read about Bettina lusting after a chick. I could no longer pretend tha ...more
When I first started reading this book, I was looking for a good steamy adult romance and that it exactly what I got. The Lovers, for me, was a very relaxing read. It was set on the beach (what's more relaxing than the beach?) and the group of writers are there to work on their current piece and enjoy themselves. Bettina meets Audrey and experiences things she never expected of herself. And then comes Jack and the love triangle begins.
I think the summer retreat was just what Bettina needed. I do wish t ...more
Las historias sobre trìos sexuales y romànticos nunca me gustaron mucho . Apenas me banco los triàngulos amorosos asì que la idea de compartir la cama y el corazòn con dos personas al mismo tiempo no me atrae en la ficciòn .
A menos que estè bien logrado .
Como es el caso the The Lovers .
Y dice asì :
La muchachita (Bettina) se enamora de otra chica (Audrey) por primera vez en su vida . Las dos pasan una semana ideal en un retiro para escritores junto con otros compañeros de la ...more
