I love reading ménage stories and this one was definitely a good one. As I said before it's a quick story so it can be easily read in one pull. But of course since it's so short there isn't much room for things as character development. I would've liked to know more about Layla, Gil and Hunter. Especially Hunter intrigued me. That man was seriously hot. A story for Layla's friend and co-worker Siri was also set in the beginning so I wouldn't mind reading that one too sometime.

It's been a while since the last time I read menage book and I enjoyed this one. It's short and definitely easy to read; I finished it for like an hour. I really wish it could be a wee bit longer and more detailed though, because I don't really feel the chemistry between the characters. But still, I liked reading it because I was in the mood for quick read before

I'm not sure how to rate this book. I guess it was okay for an erotica read, maybe a little too much at the end... There isn't really a story behind it, just a boyfriend giving his girlfriend a 'surprise' with his friend Hunter. If you want to read a short ménage scene then you can try it but we don't know much about the characters so if you're looking for something deeper where you get to know their past etc, you won't find it here. (And just so you know, it's not MM but MFM)

I received a copy of Tea for Three in exchange for my review.

Layla has never wanted to be a one man woman, but now she's found Gil she's seriously considering it. Gil knows that Layla has needs and wants to be the one that fulfils them...which is where Hunter comes in. Gil knows that Layla probably won't be satisfied by one man, and as he and Hunter have shared women before it seems logical to use him to give Layla what she wants. Lay

Tea for Three was a very quick read… in fact, it didn’t even feel like 40 pages. Well, it’s a Quickie from Ellora’s Cave… which really says it all.
So the blurb really says it all. Layla and Gil are dating, and it’s probably her first serious relationship. But to spice things up in the bedroom, Gil decides to bring in his best friend and business partner, Hunter. Where Gil is smooth

Layla loves Gil but she has always looked for a lot of sexual adventure. She is thrilled and surprised one night after work when Gil shows up with his best friend Hunter and a promise for new adventures in their relationship.

As I have said before, I learned a long time ago that if you go into erotic stories not expecting too much, you will not be disappointed and with that it in mind, this did not disappoint. This is a super short, hot sexy read. It is a straight ménage story, no m/m, no BDSM, j

The cover is pretty and hot and sexy. I just love the purple and the fact that the woman's still stressed while the guys appear to not be. It's obvious who's in power, and that's always sexy.

This was much shorter than I had expected. No wonder it's called a 'tease'! Most certainly a PWP, where we just get the barest hints of who the characters are in straight up short exposition. A teashop owner is realizing she might be getting bored being monogamous though her boyfriend is super hot and sexy a

TEA FOR THREE is a hot and steamy short story about enhancing your relationship by meeting all of your partner's needs.

Layla and Gil have a good thing going and Layla is wondering if Gil is the guy who she might be able to settle down with. But Layla is worried that the spark between her and Gil will die, like it has with all of her previous relationships. Gil is aware of Layla's concerns and he is willing to do what he has to do to make their relationship a success- even inviting his best frie

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in place of an honest review.

WARNING!!!If you don't like books that make you feel uncomfortable and has a menage in the book between M/F/M then this book is not for you. I will say that it's really hot and will leave you needing something to get your mind off of the sexiness.

Layla has been in a relationship with Gil for several months, he has taught her how to prolong her sexuality and makes it hotter. He has found out that she likes his friend Hunte
I am sort of torn with how to review this, as I feel that it either needed more information or less. It just seems as though the book could not figure out what it wanted to be. There are token worries on the part of the heroine in an obvious attempt to try to engage an emotional response from the reader, but not enough background to support it.

Additionally, there is something very off-putting about the guys’ dialog. Throughout the book they are throwing around all of these sexual terms, but inst

What a wonderful little novella! Kate St. James, transports you to a little tea shop. Layla the owner is in what may be her first long term relationship. She's hot, she's horny and game for just about anything. Her love Gil, knows that her eye has wandered to his friend Hunter. Turns out they have share with each other before. So, he brings Layla a little (or not so little surprise). The book will have serious steam coming out of your ears! It's quick hot ride, from start to finish!

If you love menage stories and are looking for a quick hot ride - this one is great!

Ms. St. James brings us a little novella about Layla, her boyfriend Gil, and his best friend Hunter. Layla owns a little tea shop and Gil is her beau. Gil realizes that Layla needs more. They love each other but is it enough? This is a short hot ride from start to finish. My only complaint is that it is too short. I kind of fell in love with them and would have loved to see how both the characters and story line

Really quick read. A novella from Elloras Cave. Hunter and Gil have been a duo since high school and they find it in their hearts to share EVERYTHING! Ha! What's wrong with that? Layla is a very sexual person and has some reservations about not sleeping with anyone else while she is with Gil. She realizes that she cares about Gil and if she is never with another man again she will be fine. Hunter comes in to the shop with Gil and things heat up. She realizes that she cant stay away fro her attra ...more

I received a copy of Tea for Three from NetGalley for an honest review. Well, let me just say this book waste no time getting down to business!!! It's a short book, so time is of the essence! Layla is in a relationship with Gil and notices he's throwing hints about a threesome. She assumes, by the comments he's made, that that someone is his buddy from high school, Hunter. She makes what could be a make or break a relationship decision to go after Hunter while Gil isn't there. Gil walks in and t ...more

Do I usually read shorts/novellas this short. No. I didn't realize it's length when I requested it. Having said that I am basing my review & rating on what it is. A hot,steamy & sexy quick read. There's no time for character development but things are inferred to that help you feel an established connection between characters. Layla & Gil have been dating for a few months & one night Gil decides to invite his friend Hunter to play. Things get real h

This is a really short quick read, but it's hot. Layla runs a tea shop and her boyfriend Gil surprises her with a menage with his best friend Hunter. There is little time wasted on back stories of the characters and relationships. It felt like I missed the first few chapters in a book and jumped straight to the sex scene. I would have like to have a little more story before and after, but if you're looking for something quick and steamy this will fit the bill.

This book is a short erotic quicky. Layla is in love with Gil; however, she always longs for sexual awakenings. One night after work, Gil shows up with his best friend Hunter and they promise to show her just how much sexual awakening they want to give her.

Books like this are short and have very little plot line and character development. It is however, a very hot and sexy read. I was not disappointed with this book, I new what it would be like when I first saw the synopsis. I would like for it

The was a quick, exciting and seemingly effortless erotic short. There's not a lot of character development because it's not a novel, but there is enough that it's a story and not just a sex scene...or several sex scenes. This was well written and we get not only physical stimulation but also mental stimulation for both the reader and Layla. The only negative for me was that it ended. I would have loved to know a little more about Hunter and seen what actually happens at the club and after. This ...more

This was a short ménage book, with one really hot scene. Panty melting hot! Layla's boyfriend, Gil, has a hot friend, Hunter, who Layla finds smokin hot. Long story short, Gil and Hunter have shared women in the past, and Hunter really wants Layla. So, the three end up steaming up her apartment.
If you just want a quick, steamy read with only sex, then this is it.

Thank you Net Galley and the publisher for this copy in exchange for a very honest review.

I thought that this was a great read. It was short and steamy. The perfect read for someone on the go. Who doesn't like the idea of two HOT Alpha Males satisfying your every need. This is a new author to me and I would definitely be interested in reading more of her work.

I definitely recommend reading.

This story is not about a story. It's a quickie! Kinda like watching a YouTube video. SO please don't expect something that is just not attainable in a few chapters. You're just setting yourself up for disappointment. It's not like it doesn't tell you how long this actually is.....
Anywhoooo, it's quick. It's dirty fun. It's a menage. It's sexy and it's hot ..... any questions? LOL

technically a PWP.
while the character well defined. the plot is nothing like what the blurbs says. more like how their first menage went on rather than the reason of that going to continually happen.

This was a very quick and spicy read. I was a little confused at first - there were a lot of detailed characters introduced that didn't play in to the book at all, maybe they'll show up again later in the series. The menage portion of the story was well written and had lots of good detail. I didn't feel much emotion between the two main characters - and no emotion at all with the tie to Hunter. It was brain candy - no real nutritional value, but yummy just the same.

It's erotica but I didn't find any of the characters interesting. There was no build up. Nothing to keep me engaged in their relationship. The guy is new guy in a threeway and then he goes to his mom's house and doesn't even take a shower? eww... Overuse of the word "clitoral hood". This book wasn't really sexy, just pornographic.

This was a hot quick read, but lacked character development. This is an interesting story, but once your at the end you feel you only read three pages. I like novellas that give a little more story to it. This was guy walk in, guys friend walks in, girls closes shop, they have sex. No real dialogue.

I usually don't read the Quickies from Ellora's Cave. The stories just aren't long enough for my time and money. However, I was intrigued by the blurb for this one, and I don't regret buying it one bit. This story was very hot, and didn't require any of the backstory that I prefer for my stories to have. I plan on checking out this author's full length novels in the future.
If your looking for a quick and very hot mfm read with not a lot of character depth then this is your read. It was only 85 pages. I enjoyed it. Just a few parts where hiw it didn't flow well. It seemed she went from thinking about something happening and then all of a sudden it was and I was like ok. I missed the transition from internal thoughts to actual reality.

What a short, but sweet read. This book is sex sex and sex! Even though it’s short, I don’t think it was lacking in details. The story wasn’t rushed.
Gil is a dreamy man who wants to give his woman anything she wants, including a threesome with his friend, Hunter. They get down to business any way you can think of. They sex scenes are super steamy. This is a perfect short read.
