Back in the saddle, again.

Yee-Haw! Carr writes some lovely, smexilicious fun times. And yummy, breaking the fast with two colleagues who are hot and young studs. Tasty with a spicy threesome, and good feelings all round, even the unexpected assist in the DP department ;) Way to play nice, boys.

Jamie, Trey, and Grace are all teachers at the same high school. On Fridays, they like to get together at the local bar for happy hour. It's April....almost graduation....and they're all about to go crazy. If it wasn't for their Friday night get-togethers, they all probably would.

Grace is 40 and has been single for quite a while. Her husband died in a car accident, leaving her alone with their young daughter who is now about to graduate from high school. Grace has devoted her life to raising her

This one was a really great read about an over 40 widowed woman coming back to herself after years of being alone. Her daughter's upcoming graduation and the realization that she will be alone prompt her to move on with some careful prodding from her friend. Jamie has had it bad for Gracie for years, but he also knew she just wasn't ready yet for what he wanted. He notices a change in her one night when out after work with all their friends, and is pushed into action by the possibility she could ...more

Ok another one I really enjoyed .. Didn't think I would like the best friend threesome so much but it was hot , and then to find out that Jamie and Gracie actually loved each other and never let it come between them and Trey. Then power of Jamie and Graces friendship and the love they felt for one another helped them through the rough patches ... The love they had for each other literally is worth getting this and reading .. If that doesn't do it then read it bc Jamie is Hot Hot Hot:)

Thank you
Another short read from this author I enjoyed. This is the third Mari Carr story I've read where the hero and heroine works at a school, and the second one I've read where the heroine is older than the hero, and the nth one where the both of them have known each other for so long that feelings between them grew from friendly to lustful. Given that there are a lot of similarities between her works, I'm still amazed how she conjures the situations between the characters.

Once again, I'm viewing thi

My Review:
Grace is a teacher at the high school. Trey & Jamie are coaches. Jamie has been attracted to Grace for years, but she has always put off a "no-touch" vibe. But now, her teenage daughter is on the verge of leaving for college and the dynamics are changing.

The premise for the initial hook-up in this book are kind of funny. For all practical purposes, Grace has been off the market since her husband died. Now that she's showing signs of interest in a personal life, Trey thinks that she

A fun read from the writer of so many good love stories. It is also about older woman/younger men--yes, men, as this loveable and dedicated mother to her high school senior daughter and widow of a man she loved deeply has now come face to face with the "empty nest" as her daughter prepares to go away to college. Two of her colleagues on the high school faculty go with her once again for "happy hour", a practice they have been enjoying together for years. But this time, it's different because thi ...more

Grace is a single mom who has pretty much put her life on hold for her daughter's sake since her father died. Jaime is her colleage at her daughtrer's high school who is also her softball coach, and has had feelings for Grace for years. Jaime and his friend Trev convince Grace to let go for a night and have a threesome with them. Hot, hot, hot sex scenes and love finds her again. Good read!!

More good stuff from Mari Carr. Older woman (40), younger (8 years) man finally get a nudge from their friends to get together and it results in fireworks. Really sweet story, and lots of sexiness, too.

This was short, sweet, and hot. Definitely hit the spot for on a late night. I thought it was cute and I really liked the characters. I really wanted Jamie and Grace to get their HEA.

This book was quite all right. Not exactly something I'll be running to read again, but it is a decent m/f/m story, no m/m action though.
