Ok, so I am not sure why I didn't post my review back when I read this book --- eeek!

Taken by Two by Sam J.D. Hunt is one sexy as hell book with the M/F/M combo and the nice mystery and forbidden aspect, you will surely love this book! I have been a fan of Sam's work since I read her Roulette: Love Is A Losing Game book as I happened across it on Kindle Unlimited, not knowing anything about this author before I went in.. lets just say she quickly climbed to the top of my M/F authors wit

Having read Sam JD Hunt’s work before, I knew going into the book, it would be a good one, and I was right! This one is a PANTY MELTER!

I am an MFM lover to begin with, and this one was awesome! It wasn’t too short, it didn’t drag in ANY WAY, it had action, suspense and, while not overly descriptive, the sex scenes were HOT and they aren’t powder puff scenes either.

Each character has their own demons to fight, so they aren’t shallow characters. Each character has to get to know each other and und

Good Gravy, This Book is Terrible! DNF

SPOILERS

I have so, so, so many issues with this book.

Let's start at the beginning:

Penny notices her crush, Nathaniel, who's been missing for a while, across the bar. She walks up to him, makes a witty comment about him being back from the dead, he remembers her by name and then she says, "Pleased to make your acquaintance, Mr...?" Umm, is that an attempt at flirty banter?? They both recognized each other, wtf is the purpose behind this???

Next, Nathaniel dru

I can say this, Sam JD Hunt hit it out of the park with this book. I didn’t know what, I was going to get reading a m/f/m book, but I was truly surprised in a really good way.


This is the story of Nate, Penny and Rex. All Penny did is go into a bar to have a drink and everything changes from that day forward. This journey between these characters had from the start and I couldn’t put this book down. I love the kind and sweet Nate who truly knew what he was doing in everything but then Rex aka al

What a HOT read! I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. It was one that was recommended to me that I just hadn't gotten around to reading it. I'm actually mad that I waited so long!

The beginning of this book is a little rough and confusing. Wait...who kidnapped who? Who CAPTURED who? What in the world is happening?! Readers are on edge, as much as the main character Penelope is. We're as confused and befuddled as she is. She makes a decision that leaves me going wait...WHAT?! Tha

I couldn't get in to this story no matter how hard I tried. The whole kidnapping bit was unnecessarily frustrating, I found Rex to be a complete asshole and I had a hard time picturing Nate as anything more than a subservient boy toy. They way rushed the intensity of their relationships with "falling in love" coming up in the first few chapters. The story was choppy, the dialogue was convoluted and the plot was weak. Worst of all, the sex was pretty canned - for a menage love story there was ver ...more

Five stars aren't enough ...


From the moment I started reading this book, I knew without a doubt, that I just one-clicked the best book of 2016. Taken By Two has blissfully sated me and yet, at the same time, I'm sure it may have ruined me for a while. It'll be a daunting task to find another of its kind that will compare to this treasure.

The story revolves around three people who are equally damaged in their own unique way. Penny, a rich, spoiled, twenty-four year old—Nate, a late twenty-somet

I received an ARC of this book for my honest review.
Wow I can't say how much I loved this book and all the characters in it.
I loved that Penny, Rex and Nate all have different personalities but somehow they all mesh really well together. They are great at pushing each other in the ways they need to grow as a person. They bring out the best qualities in the others.
They all have their own individual battles to overcome and demons of their past they need to shed so they can open up fully and fin

"...we all shared some vein of self-destructive behavior..."

Self destruction, danger, possessiveness, and STEAMY chemistry make Taken by Two an intense one sitting read!! This versatile author has created ONE HELL of a story!! The alpha male, his best friend, and a woman whose strength brings to light true feelings and acceptance; creating a bond that is unbreakable! "Fight or run" are the options they each face as the danger becomes greater. As their survival instincts kick in they discover tha

Sam does it again!!! I'm blown away by how versatile she is as an author. She puts you in the story, I felt like I was experiencing the emotions right along with the characters.

Rex, Nate and Penny were in an unconventional relationship, that started out with kidnapping and ending with them all loving one another. There were some major bumps on the path to love... Secrets, addictions and manipulations. But they got there at the end.

3 1/2 "We are Three" Stars!

Well, this book started off very 'bow chica wow, wow'- serious late night Cinamax.... You know, bad porn; but it totally grew on me. Mostly because of Rex. I ended up kinda loving him. The plot was shaky but the characters (the guys, Penny was annoying) were great and it ended up being a sweet story. Very, very HOT and Sexy! Happy reading!

So while I enjoyed the book, I felt more could have been done. A longer well rounded book would have been great.
Heather in FL
Overall, this was an interesting story, but near the beginning, I considered moving to a new story because I couldn't stand the heroine. She grew on me a bit, but it just felt like a lot of it was immature. Sure, she's something like 24, but some of her choices were perplexing. Honestly, Nate felt like a very weak character. And Rex was almost over-the-top alpha. Still, it was sort of fun to watch them build this triad, where Nate and Rex were ultimately intimate, but that would never have happe ...more

I think it's best if I DNF @31 %.

I seriously don't feel connected to the story. Why?
Well, there are many, many reasons.

1)h gets abducted and she doesn't even fight it. When she wakes up, she's all happy when she sees Nate, her crush, and even though he was the one who drugged her she had sex with him. Seriously?

2) When she escaped, Rex saved her and told her the truth. She slept with him after that.
3)Who in the right mind who has a phobia of snakes gets over it so quickly?? She sees a sna

I was given this book in turn for an honest review.

The last thing Penelope Sedgewick expected was to find herself enjoying the company of Nate and his dark dangerous friend Rex Renton. Their chemistry is undeniable, their lives are in danger; is it possible for them to love and exist as one?

Sam JD Hunt has left me at a loss for words. This story is unlike anything else I have ever read, she has completely and utterly blown me away. What I expected and what I got were two very differen

Three hearts, one love. Undeniable attraction and erotic passion explodes across the pages!

I’m not really a fan of ménage stories but after reading this, I’m a convert. This book has a bit of everything; drama, suspense, kidnapping, danger, addiction, friendship and extremely hot sex between three people who are learning that it’s possible to love more than one person at the same time, whatever their gender.

This book was intense! Additional note, it is not what you expect, I am almost certain. It is well written and worth reading. I really enjoyed it.

HERO: Roger "Rex" Renton -- Ex-Soldier. Painful past, difficulty loving or trusting. The epitome of a dominant male.

HERO: Nathaniel "Nate" Slater -- Businessman. Ex-opiate addict, long time crush on Penny

I am in love with Nate and Rex two Alpha men but so different. Rex is a take charge man in every situation. He runs a very intense rehab program in Columbia former special ops man with many talents. Nate not as intense as Rex but that is what makes them a perfect match. Penelope was taken by these men from a casino in Vegas she finds out later it was for her own protection.

Sam has hit this one out of the ball park. I loved every minute of this story. I wasn't sure really what to expect with this story being that is is m/f/m but it was so good.

The story flows very well and is well written. The unique chemistry between all 3 of the characters jump off the pages. Rex, Nate and Penny all have demons they need to beat, but they find a way to do it. They all have very different personalities but they all kind of mesh

Great Read If....You enjoy romance, MMF, discovering yourself, discovering love, healing from your past, overcoming your past, and an HEA.

Side Note: Okay, so let me start being completely. When I first started the book I was confused, angry, and not too in love with the way the author wrote. HOWEVER <------- See that word, I KEPT READING and fell in love, not just with the two men in the story who were fantastic, but the female who held them together.

Sam is one of those authors that I ALWAYS one click and I don't even have yo know what the book is about first. This book blew me away! Loved every word of it! Rex is the hard tough badass. Nate is a badass, in his way, but also soft and caring. Where Rex won't deal in emotions, Nate doesn't hide his. Penny is the middle between the two, the glue to their trio, and the luckiest girl ever!! This book has it all...love, hott sex, funny, witty....it will keep you turning the pages!!
