Danielle Stuart and the Baumgartners are neighbors. Carrie Baumgartner and Dani become friends, soon lovers.

A fully-clothed Carrie Baumgartner would have been pretty hard to ignore, let alone a topless, unbelievably bronze one, completely covered in coconut-scented oil.
“Come on, Dani.” She waved me out, as if the decision had already been made. “Let’s get some sun together.”
And that was how it began.

Dani has scruples getting involved into Carrie and Doc’s marriage, but they are both so insis

Jesus that was HOT. Seriously it was cold shower worthy

Mmm yes please Doc.

The characters were really interesting & I felt like i really got to know them during the book. Considering how much sex there was in the book it is surprising how much story the author managed to include. I was so happy with the ending it was lovely.

I would recommend this book & I plan on reading a lot more by this author.

So it begins. This is the beginning of Mrs. B and Doc. I have to say, I was skeptical of Ms. Kitt's Baumgartner books because of all the hype. I devoured this one along with the rest. Ms. Kitt does write hot scenes. The fact that she uses a simple plot adds to my enjoyment. A voyeuristic enjoyment is really what it comes down to, because I feel as though I'm watching a seduction.

I think I'm relating to Ms. Kitt's BTB stories more only because she's using places I know in Ann Arbor Michigan. It m

SEX SEX & some more awesome SEX! Loved the steamy sex scenes...where no one got jealous or heartbroken in the super sexy three-some! Happy ending after happy ending for the sex and story line. I love myself a happy ending, no pun...

Blackraven’s Review:

First, I must say that when I saw there was another installment in The Baumgartner series, I simply jumped for joy and grabbed the book before anyone else had a chance to get their grubby little paws on it. *Evil Laugh*

Ms. Kitt continues to amaze me with the depth that she brings to this series. I’m am completely fascinated with Doc and Carrie, but more importantly with the love they have for one another. They are extremely generous, open-minded individuals who seem to bring

Wow, the Baumgartners are just so beyond FABULICIOUS!!!!!!!! The 1st book I read in this series was Babysitting the Baumgartners and I wasn’t that mad about it but then I read Meet the Baumgartners and I fell in love!!!! - and after reading The Baumgartners Plus One, I am more than HOOKED…….I am addicted to Doc (I still hate this name….) and Carrie and their SMOKING HOT, SEXY, DELICIOUS life.

I just love the Baumgartners. They live in this little lovely emotional world where they just love everybody. There's no jealousy, no hard feelings, no STD's, just lots and lots and LOTS of sex. F/F, F/F/M, F/M, oral, anal, phone sex. Damn they have some libido!

This takes us from how Mr and Mrs. B got together to them getting preggers with their first little Baumgartner. In between they bring in Dani, from who's POV the story is told. I have found it very interesting throughout this series that

I love the Baumgartners! I just LOVE THEM. I love this prequel too. It's the second one with Meet The Baumgartners being the first. I love that they were just freaky from the beginning. Ms. Kitt is the queen of book porn for me. And I am going to miss the Baumgartners! I'm hoping Dani will get her own story. I want to know what happens to her. Is she the God mother to one of the kids? Did I read that in one of the books?

It's the Baumgartners, what do you expect? Of-course, Doc and Mrs. B do not disappoint when it comes to over indulging in all things sexual. If you have read any of the others in this series, I am certain you know what I am talking about. It is another great and smutty addition to the Baumgartner saga!

I am not usually into FFM for my menages, but Dani and Carrie established such a great friendship outside of the sex that I didn't mind it at all. That and the fact that it didn't take away from Carrie and Doc's relationship, but added to it.

The story itself was true to life, because a lot of couples lose their way after a tragedy. There is no real way to say how anyone will respond in any given situation, so the fact that one couple may be stronger and another breaks is basically just a coin to

This book delivers exactly what you might expect it to. It is steamy and smutty and over the top in the best possible way. It continues the story and the characters of the series in a way that works well for the story and keeps you hooked in the entire time. It's a well written, fast fast-paced read that will definitely have you blushing in more ways than one. If you're looking for a satisfying and over-the-top then this one is perfect for you!!

We welcome Danielle into the Baumgartner family in this installment.

After Carrie befriends her neighbor, Danielle - an attraction begins to grow. Danielle never imagined she'd be seduced by the young couple, but after spying on their sex one night - she can't think of anything else.

This was a hot story! I loved Danielle's character and am glad she's one that gets to revisit during this series.

I failed to review this promptly after finishing, in fact I got backed up by about 50 titles, so these r

The book tells the story of Danielle and her neighbors, Doc and Carrie Baumgartner. The book is the last in the Baumgartner series, but stands alone. Personally it is the only one of the series I have read and I didn’t feel the loss of knowing what went on before, as the story is completely self-contained.

Dani is struggling through the loss of a child six months earlier, and the break-up of her marriage. She watches Carrie sunbathing, aroused when Carrie starts pleasuring herself. Dani – in fact

Ahhh the Baumgartners. There is not a couple around like them. Anywhere.
I had first read "Babysitting the Baumgartners" a year or so ago and I was blown away with just how hot and smutty the story was. So I thought I'd go back to the beginning of the series to read how it all began. That lead me to this "Plus One" book.

M/F, F/F & F/F/M are the sexual orientations of this book and I swear Selena Kitt writes the best F/F scenes around. I'm not usually drawn to F/F as I am M/M but holy smokes

I was quite surprised at the emotional depth of the story. Danielle has quite the back story for someone still so young and reading from her POV made it all the more real. At times, I had a love/hate relationship with all of the characters, but most especially with Mason.

The ending left me the most shocked although in thinking back, I guess it shouldn't have. No doubt there is at the very least a HFN and how Ms. Kitt goes about it is incredible. However, after becoming somewhat attached to both

Just finished The Baumgartners Plus one.
This is top shelf erotica, the book just seethes with sexual chemistry, my god, I didn't think anything so hot and erotic could be captured so perfectly. Selena Kitt just keeps knocking them out of the park with The Baumgarters.
I like the story line, taking us back to the early days, when Doc and Carrie were living in the university's married quarters. Carrie meets and gets to know her neighbor, Danielle Stuart. This gives the characters more depth, we di

Loved It! Smokin' HOT!

As I have with all the Baumgartner Books. Boy I wish I was Carrie!

I had no idea Ms. Kitt was releasing another one of this series! After reading Meet The Baumgartners, I thought that it was the last of that series. Holy, was I thrilled when I got the Selena Kitt newsletter to see yet another one! Downloaded it and read it in a day, putting my other books on hold for the day!

This is a true Selena Kitt wet panties kinda book, but it had me tearing up a few times, so you may
I liked the book, but it failed to woo me in the way Babysitting the Baumgartners did.
The book takes on the tough subject of an unsuccessful marriage and domestic abuse, but in my opinion doesn't make it dark enough to allow me to sympathise enough with Danielle.

As I mentioned in my other short review of a different Baumgartners book, this series is seriously sexy. It's a great read that has TONS of sex. So don't read it unless you are interested in erotica. However, unlike many erotica authors, Selena Kitt does not struggle with weaving in loving and emotionally intelligent characters. You don't feel dirty reading this series because all of the sex is consentual and taking place in a positive environment. Not that other erotica books that aren't like t ...more

I started reading the Baumgartners series of books because I was looking for some incredible sex scenes and have found Selena Kitt to be very good at describing the sex scenes in very titillating detail. What I have found in every one of these Baumgartners books so far has been an excellent story line with very lovable characters (and some down right despicable characters as well) that also happen to have some VERY steamy sex scenes. This book like all of the Baumgartners books before it did not ...more

Another great installment to the Baumgartners. It might be the last. I thought this was a sort of sweet story. Women bonding over lost children or inability to carry to term. Thankfully I have never experienced that, and I can't imagine the utter sense of loss. And of course, Doc and Carrie are freaks in the most positive sense of the word, lol. They love each other, and they love including others, so they include Dani. I thought Dani's "gift" was extremely selfless, and I cried a bit at the end ...more

Told from Dani's POV from her attraction to the hot topless sunbathing neighbor Carrie, to her failed marriage and then her moving into Carrie and Docs house and eventually bed. So plenty of things going on in this story.

Plenty of f/f and even all three of them together. There is also one quick spanking and anal play so be warned if you don't enjoy reading that.

I just love Carrie and Doc and Dani fit in with them perfectly. A little shy at first but then Carrie brought her out of her self-induc

Another hot,hot,hot installment in the Baumgartner series. This one had a great story to go along with it too. I'm not embarrassed to say that I"m a bit in love with both Carrie and Doc at this point! I love the way the characters have developed (though I haven't read them in order) and it just seems like they are such warm people - the kind of friends you'd like to have for friends...but aren't they the best kind anyway?

I love the Baumgartners. I love the way Selena Kitt writes their stories. This is going to be a short review. If you like erotic novellas with strong characters, give this a try. Give the Baumgartners a try.
