The characters irritated me...the hairy nudists, the alien thing, the little town of Bliss and it's occupants, the instant falling in love, which just did not ring true for me....but that's just my opinion.
I know that there are a lot of readers who enjoyed the story but I was not "grabbed"!!
I will probably read the next book in the series and hopefully it will do something more for me. (less)

The incredible writing, the fresh and new spin on a ménage storyline, the setting and fantastic and endearing characters…..what can I say but that…………..
From the opening pages………..
I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they don’t need to know anything, but that they are not alone in my heart.
To meeting the 3 main characters:
I wasn’t prepared to feel such a connection with her . Here’s this woman that is not only beautiful on the outside but inside as well. She’s warm, loving, caring (the one scene with her stepfather was really poignant), and lives her life on her own terms, never wanting to cause pain or hurt to anyone. How could I possibly not like her…..totally understood why both men had such intense feelings for her.
I hate society's notion that there is something wrong with sex. Something wrong with a woman who loves sex.
A young, sexy and gorgeous professional surfer, living in Venice beach, is laid back and cares only, apart from Madison, for finding and conquering the next big wave in his life.
Can I be honest and admit that I fell in love with this warm and loving guy. I felt that he truly loved Madison and was prepared to do anything to make her happy –agreeing to her “outlandish” proposition and even if it meant giving her up to Stewart if that was what she chose.
Powerful, wealthy, sexy, dominant male, totally dedicated to his job and immersed in his work, which Madison is fitted into the little free time he has in his life. He’s totally obsessed and in love with her, physically and emotionally and he realizes that he’s not fulfilling all her needs. So he proposes that she find another man who will give her what he cannot…..more time with her. Whilst I did have a soft spot for him, I did think the love he had for Madison was not strong enough should there be anything that would disrupt his life. Of course, the issues in his past had a lot to do with his emotional psyche, which come back with a bang!!!
"The three of us. Living two separate relationships. I get that you don't understand. That you wonder how someone could possibly be aroused, turned on by the thought of something so forbidden. But often, it is the forbidden that is the hottest, and the depraved that is the most arousing."
Two amazing men, both intense, each giving Madison what she thinks she needs in her life.
Paul loves me with unconditional warmth, his affection public and obvious, his arms pulling me into his warmth, his mouth littering my body with frequent kisses.
Stewart loves me with a tiger’s intensity, his need taking my breath away, his confidence in our relationship strong enough to not be bothered by the presence of another man. He stares into my soul as if he owns it, and shows his love with money, sex, and rare moments of time.
“God.... he whispers. “You are my fucking kryptonite.” He leans down pressing soft kisses on my hair and forehead, his hand releasing me and cradling my face, turning it up to his, and kissing my fully and deeply on the lips. “I love you Madison. For everything.”
The twist…..the first one, I was like WOW…………I didn’t see that coming!!! And just when I thought…okay, we have this HEA…..which just by the way, I absolutely LOVED….I’m thrown an epilogue that I can’t even describe in words how much it stunned me…..NOW…THAT I NEVER EXPECTED!!!!
Sorry, but I can’t help it….I loved the writing style and can’t stop with some more of my fav quotes:
‘I was, and still am, a dramatic rider. I believe that there’s no point in doing something if you aren’t going to do it with all of your heart.’
‘I love her. She knows it. I don’t hide the fact. But I don’t think she knows how much I love her. How much my chest expands to a point of pain when she smiles. How I ache when I leave her, how my hands shake when I finally get to touch her again. She is everything I don’t deserve, and everything I could ever hope to attain.’
If you want a beautifully and thoughtfully written story about passion, love with a fantastic, provocative and clever story line, then read this.
It’s an addictive read believe me!!!!!
I can’t wait to read more books from this author. (less)

The plot is so ridiculous and silly that it’s beyond OTT. Natalie places messages on social media sites looking for her lost Russian father and voila!!! Soon she’s met up with some gorgeous Russian bodyguard, who has been sent to America to fetch her and take her to unknown father, who just happens to be one of the “good” Russian Mafiosos!!!!!!!
oh okay…there are some of those still living in Russia….after all, her father does everything criminal but not drugs and prostitutes………that makes it okay, doesn’t it??????
“Your father is part of the Bratva, the brotherhood. It’s like a criminal aristocracy. He’s vor v zakone, the head of our organization, answering to no one.” The blatant pride in Sevastyan’s tone made my queasiness increase. “So I’m a freaking mafiya princess, then? That’s the real reason I’m in danger, isn’t it?”
The characters are totally unrelatable….Natalie, works three jobs….talk about superwoman!!!!! A virgin still waiting to be deflowered by the “right” guy….who she INSTANTANIOUSLY knows is Sevastian, the bodyguard, who is totally devoted to her father!!!!!
The two “ignite” immediately….but he’s a man of honor!!!! He does not want to deflower his boss’s daughter because it just ain’t right!!!!!! He has an iron control beyond belief!!! And Natalie, for someone so virginal, sure shows some creative skills that just come “naturally” to her…forget experience….it’s been simmering in her and she’s now ready to “boil” over!!!
I imagined him with cool, statuesque beauties from the north, felt like a runt in comparison. That feeling was short-lived—because he moved his attention to my breasts. Cupping them from the bottom, he nearly circled them with his big hands. Avoiding my nipples, he kneaded with a practiced touch that was just this side of rough. But I loved it, arching to him. Again and again, he palmed me, plumping the mounds until the rest of my body begged for contact—which he seemed determined to withhold. “What are you doing to me?” “Sexually torturing you.” He tightened his grip on my breasts.
The sex was not erotic or sensual…..
“Chut’.” Slightly. “I’ve been replaying how I saw you in the bath, stroking yourself with these fingers.” He peeled my right hand from the cover—which I’d been clutching like a roller-coaster safety bar—then pressed my fingertips against his face. “I only wish you’d finished yourself in front of me.”
Steam hissed, floating through the air. It surrounded us, caressing my face. “If we stay h-here, something might happen.” Something sinful. Like the two of us stripping down to nothing, so we could lick droplets from each other’s skin.
The writing was so silly……I mean……Natalie phones her best friend, who is just as idiotic as her,
Jess answered on the fourth ring, snapping with impatience: “Having my box eaten right now; this better be good—”
from the private jet winging her and
” Sevastyan crossed to stand in front of me. The soft light caressed his hard features. They were almost too masculine. His rugged jaw was wide, the bridge of his aquiline nose slightly askew, giving him a roguish look. But on the whole, he was devastatingly attractive, with that dangerous aura about him”. to meet her father.
The characters ….not one of them….did it for me. I found nothing likeable about them…..I was laughing my head off when Natalie arrives at her father’s PALACE…yes, he has a palace and soon his long lost daughter is given all the rich life gifts……diamond-crusted Smartphone, sports car, designer clothes and Natalie is a born natural to this life…soon she’s doing vodka shots with her father and his “team” and her new found cousin..….jeez….it was like watching that reality show about the new rich in London!!!!!!!!!!!! Money and nothing else!!
Such silly dialogue…pets and nyets………..really!!!
“You must trust me, pet,” he said as he reached forward to gently grasp my chin. At his touch, that dizzying heat filled me once more. It was just the liquor at work, I assured myself, or exhaustion catching up with me. Or my unsuccessful bath time.
“Pet . . .” Now every time he called me that it reminded me of his words:collar and keep you. He reached for my jacket, his gaze gone molten. “There’s one thing you should know.”
I just had this image running in my head
