Recommended for: anyone wanting a steamy read with HEA - story lacking.
Read in January, 2010


This one was a difficult rate. If your looking for a hot, steamy story with lots of ménage sex here-there-and-everywhere then you'll love this.

If your looking for something a little deeper with more of a plot and character development then you should chuck the brakes on now and make a u-turn back to the bookshelves...this one is not for you.

I give the sex a 4+ and the story a 2 and that's left me with a 3-star rating.


I was so disappointed with some inconsistencies in the story, like this...
Tyler (Brianna's person bodyguard with benefits *wink* *wink*) takes her to the restaurant she requested and is suspicious as to why (he knows something is up but goes anyway - 'cause that's what the words on the pages say! lol)... Brianna looks around so agitated for 5 minutes ... then after a secret signal (aka some chic points to the toilets - very secret!) from across the room from the woman who only the day before gave her death-dagger looks, and with all the subtlety of a drunk heading to happy-hour, Brianna announces she has to go to the ladies ... at the same time Brianna fiancés Ex-shag makes a bee-line for the loos.... HELLO!!! WARNING - Bitchy confrontation approaching!!! But no - Tyler never notices this because he is too busy looking out for a stalker .... ummm? what do you think this chick is??? a girl scout???

I was also put off by the fact that Brianna was a screamer... yep... she'd hit the high notes every time she hit the Big-O like an opera soprano, which was, as the story goes, quite often. I hope there was a good health plan for the poor house staff who were bound to suffer from industrial deafness.

At one point Brianna is whining on about being "oh so concerned" about her brother who was blind and partially hearing-impaired, then the minute she gets him under the same roof she poops across the hall to have another shag ... um ... he's blind but NOT completely deaf. If she was SO concerned how does she think he would feel hearing his sister howl like a cat on heat.

There were other scenes like this but I think I'll stop here as this is all the time and effort this book deserves from me.
