** I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.**

'A Thoroughly Modern Ménage' is another book by Serena Akeroyd that will stay with me a long time. The storyline was well written. It completely took me by surprise with the very real circumstances and issues that surround the characters on a daily basis. From the first book, 'Ménage Material', we met and came to love Devvy, Alex and Sebastien. Even with their personal struggles, they overcame the hurdles life threw at th

Warning: this book is tough to handle. It includes graphic descriptions of rape and death. But there's also redemption and love and lust and friendship and healing too...you'll run the gamut of emotions in A THOROUGHLY MODERN MÉNAGE.

Grief. The word doesn't come close to describing the excruciating horror that comes with having to bury your child. Katja Varsain's heart and soul was her son Josef, and when he's killed by a reckless hit and run driver, they were both severed. To add insult to inju

5 "call me Katja" stars

i got gifted this amazing book by the amazing author. seriously how bad is it I want to rate this book a 4. Now you at probably saying wow this person's rude but let me tell you why ...because I want more and I'm selfish and I need more and more and more of this series. It's gutwrenching , it's sexy, it's taboo, it's emotional , it's raw , and it's real. I hurt for almost everyone of these characters and I want the best for them as if I know them. this book may even be be

This novel is the second book in a series, but it can be read as a standalone - enough information is provided for you not to be lost. However, Ménage material is a great novel, you'd be missing out if you didn't read it !

Kate is Alex's PA. We met Alex, Sebastian and Devvy in the previous novel but this story is about Kate. The most awful tragedy happened to her, somethin

Beautifully detailed, the story of Kate, Louis, and Ade brought so many feelings to the surface. I was angry, sad, confused, and most of all, in love with all three of them. Unlike many other books in the MMF (or even MFM) genre, this triad is formed slowly. Both Kate and Ade are involved with Louis, and Louis loves th ...more

Serena Akeroyd has an unique way to make you love, out of the norm romances! Fairly well written, very well researched, with a story that is interesting and hot while still very romantic, this book is a mix of a deep emotional journey and a sizzling (for certain a little taboo) carnal pleasure! In A Thoroughly Modern Menage we witness the power of grief and loss in all its form, through the painful life of Katja, Adrian and Louis, and how you

Another fantastic 5 star read by Serena Akeroyd, she never disappoints, EVER.
Please see my full review here

This book saw Kate grow from heartache to intense love with indepth passion within the pages of A Thoroughly Modern Ménage

While menage may not be for all, it definitely surprised Kate, and her willing partners Louis & Ade certainly helped to make it an easy transition.
One that she will never forget,

I deem this as another 5 star must read from Ser

I thought the first story in Akeroyd’s La Belle sans la Bête series was brilliant. This, the second one in the series has all of the makings – a grieving mother whose young son’s recently died, an injured soldier who’s witness more than his share of war and death and a lawyer who’s got his own family history of a sibling’s suicide – for romantic tragedy. I wasn’t as impressed as I was in the first go around. I thought there was too much here, it felt like a game of one-upmanship, almost like the ...more

Read this and Menage Material back to back.
WOW.
I loved how it's a standalone but at the same time, the characters in Menage Material come in, so we get to see their lives together and to see if the menage is working.
Kate has had to go through some things that no one should ever have to go through, and while she's grieving, I guess it could seem a little odd to be falling in love with someone, but it really fit. Somehow Serena Akeroyd made it acceptable. Kate's past just made me want her to fin

Serena Akeroyd is a romanceaholic. She won’t touch a book unless she knows there’s a happy ever after at the end of it. Pathetic as it may be, because of this addiction, Serena decided to craft her own tales, stories that suit her voracious need for raunchy romance. After all, a love story ain’t a lurve story without a bit of raunch!
A citizen of the world, Serena is a nomad at heart, and her novel
