Mixed feelings about this book. I loved the initial story with the older woman/younger man but wasn't really sure why this tied into the later story as much, other than to show that the woman was unhappy with her marriage all along.

The menage itself was a nice read. The menage turning into a HEA was not my thing. Especially with the baby as part of the story. I realize that it's possible to think about sex while you're feeding a baby, but it weirded me out reading about these tender moments wit

There was definitely a lot of emotional turmoil going on in this book that I wasn't expecting. This is more than just an erotic menage read.
Jenn is a beautiful, but beaten down woman...beaten down physically and beaten down emotionally. It sounds like she has always used sex as a way to make her feel good about the point of creating quite the reputation for herself. Living on an island where people vacation is the best thing for her because she can have her flings with no strings at

This is the second book I have read from JT Harding and….Wow! This chick can write an Erotic story that will have you squirming through the sex scenes, laughing with the humor, and holding your breathe through the climax (of the story and the sex ;-p).

The characters each have depth and are relatable in their own way. Jenni is the emotionally and physically beaten heroin who doesn’t know her worth. Kim, I just absolutely love, because as a breastfeeding mother who went through a sex

First off, this story has one of my favorite kinks, which comes around only once or twice in a lifetime, so I've increased my rating by one star.

The story itself is well written (mostly), the characters are well developed, and the plot has some nice variants on common themes. The sex is hot and detailed.

There are two major problems, first is basic editing, with typos and missing commas. At least twice, I had to re-read a sentence to figure out what the author intended to say. Second, in several

A serious but hot story about a FMF menage. Although the plot is somewhat contrived, the characters themselves are pretty believable and realistically portrayed.

I actually didn't think I would like this book but I did. It was deliciously naughty so if u like that read it. I know it's a stand Lone but whenever I love a book I always want more. Recommended!

How many times have you looked at a couple and thought..Why? Why would she put up with that? The answer often varies and more often than not its unpleasant. The same goes for our Cinderella.. ..Jenni. Many of us spend our lives being afraid of our own desires or being made to feel ashamed of them because they are not what society deems as normal. What is the meaning of that horrid word anyway? Jenni is no different. Being ashamed of herself and her reputation she tries to change it and herself b ...more
W...T....F did I just read. Ok so I'm pretty freaky. I like a good dose of smut as the next chick but this was almost comical because of the things they did here. I only have one word... JELLYFISH! YES, A GODDAMN JELLYFISH!!!! The blob-like sea creature. Sigh. What else am I supposed to talk about? The storyline didn't really mean shit when you read the sex. There were menages with 2 women and 1 guy, breast milk, and other stuff lol.

Four stars

A pretty good story well told, except for the occasional I correctly used word and a few typos. Characters are well defined and act accordingly. Enjoy.

Tess Harding started writing fiction at the age of 9, but had to wait until she was 24 before being published professionally. That was a long time ago, and somewhere along the way real life demanded her attention and she drifted away from writing until recently.
Tess writes erotic fiction which, she sincerely believes, is different. Many works under that banner consist of graphic and extreme sex. T
