Twice as Hard

They caught me. Naked, shivering and dripping after a spontaneous swim in the forest. Two rugged men whose hard gazes captivated and scared me all at once.

They warned me. Told me I was on private property and I needed to obey the law…or I would be punished.

The idea of them both punishing me, pleasuring me, kept tormenting me. I couldn't want them. I shouldn't. But I did.

4 - 4.5 Smut Scale Stars

Before I get started, I should let you all know that I am having internet problems today.

I had to uninstall/reinstall shit, upgrade my browser, and a lot of other techy nonsense I don't really understand.

What this means, in short, is that I lost and re-wrote this review...

Surprisingly good smut!

I am not sure how I can review the story without giving away some major spoilers. The book is just full of twists.

A woman in the beginning of the book trespasses a private property, has a swim naked under a small waterfall and gets caught by the two owners of the land. She is warned never to be back. But yes she will be back no necessarily because it is her fault.
Add to this mess that:
- The woman is already married but her husband abandoned her and now he just sends notes

descriptionThis cover is pretty good. It has a vibe about it that represents the story well. The composition is good. The typography is interesting. The "TWICE AS" is a bit too large IMO and ever so slightly too far to the right causing the "S" to be cut off a tiny bit. Overall though a fairly decent cover.description

Holy effin' HOTNESS! I'm really satisfied with this book as my first read. I clicked this one immediately when a reviewer said how smutty is the book. Totally enjoyed the smut factor, but I kinda turn off with the OTT drama. Really promising start but threw me off the game in the end.

Gabby must follow the bread crumb that left by her husband in her "special expedition". She's really tired and there's a tempting waterfall. Naked in the forest out of nowhere? No pro

This was a really weird book for me. I think buried in the story was something worth reading, but I had a lot of issues with the execution.

I'm going to try to not reveal any spoilers, but that's especially hard with a story like this one. All I knew going into it was that it was going to be a M/F/M story, and that's basically it.

A few things you should know. For one, I wouldn't even classify this story as a romance. It is really erotica with some scant romance traces. It is much, MUCH more abo

HOT DAMN, this book was so sexy.
I'm always wary of menage romances because most of the time one guy ends up seeming like a 3rd wheel. Or the girl likes one more than the other. But ohhhh, this book really hit the spot (in more ways than one). Neither man was left out, in any sense of the word. I was impressed with the level of heat in the sex scenes. They were scorchers. I was reading them thinking, 'This author done good.'. Just wh

The best thing in this book was the smut. My need was satisfied. Still I was considering to drop it because of the first few chapters. Why? Well.. because the story felt a bit creepy to me. You're in the mountain doing stuff your husband left you in notes but then you came across two strangers. The men own the land and everything on it..... They taint you, they scare you, they make you feel crazy things. By chance the men caught you and do things again your will. That was my turning point. I don

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**

My thoughts are conflicted.



Gabby followed written directions that led her onto private property, with two owners who both scare and arouse her with their warnings to stay away unless she wants to be properly punished. Her instinct is to run away but there is something in the back of her mind that tells her to run toward them, instead.

After her dog mysteriously leads her back to the forbidden place she's been daydreaming about, Gabby is

Well that was very interesting. Really can't say much because it will give everything away.

If you want Three-way smutty sex this is for you. It starts a tad rough, but it smooths out in the end. I have to say it was very interesting plot twist. I usually predict but heck it through me for a loop.

This has got to be the most Erotic, titillating, lustful, salacious, carnal and sensual book I have read in 2017, so far.

But I knew it. I knew Amber Bardan would take a menage story and make it sizzling hot. She has ruined me for all other menage stories.

I look back at him and reexamine what I just said. I like having two of a good thing. My blood goes combustible because now I’m picturing two of a good thing. I’m picturing being the soft apple center in their man-pastry

4 dangerously delicious stars for TWICE AS HARD!

When Gabby is sent on a scavenger hunt by her estranged husband, she winds up naked and enjoying a waterfall...something she's always wanted to do. Until two rough mountain men catch her trespassing, warning her that very bad things could happen to her if she's caught there again. After she's caught there once again, the men make good on their promise: anything on their land belongs to them. Gabby hates what the men are doing to her...right? She's

Paige's review:

Twice as Hard is a short kinky read containing plot twists that were unexpected.

The book is broken into two parts fantasy and reality. The fantasy that played out between the 3 was hot and kinky. I loved the menage fantasy and the scenario that played out between the trio.

I was scared for Gabby at times. She went down a dark and emotional path but was able to breakthrough and find the light and peace with her feelings.

I thought the author does a good job with the character connect

Batta Bing, Batta Bang! And just like that, we're pulled in to a fantasy that becomes extremely real.

When I first started this, I kept thinking about how this was an awesome thriller, turning into an even cooler fantasy. But then....WHAT??? The script flips and I'm backtracking trying to figure out what just happened. And then the "ah ha" moment happens and I was like, "wowza". Don't worry, you'll totally understand what I'm talking about when you read this. LOL.

This was a fantastic little book, a short story that was kinky, hot, exciting, and surprisingly profound. I don't want to give too much away because the best part of this story is the way everything unfolds. Honestly, if you haven't read this book and you like kinky menage stories, I implore you to stop reading and go purchase this RIGHT NOW.

OMG! Yes this book is so what I needed right now to get me out of a book funk. It was all kinds of dirty and hot, but still had such a gripping story line.

The synopsis is the first thing that grabbed me when I saw this book. It was intriguing and I didn't really know what to think. There was just something about those few words that really want to make me find out what would happen to the poor girl once she was kidnapped. And boy did I find out!

Surprisingly full of depth

For a nice smut read, I was surprised how the plot was more deep than needed, extra deep, like at both ends...lol, moving on....
This is one of those pretend taboo reads which usually pisses me off but there was real conflict afterwards that I was impressed by.

When I read the synopsis of Twice as Hard, I wasn’t immediately interested. Ménage storylines aren’t something I’ve really read or taken too much of an interest in. I found out that this was part of an anthology that I had already started and decided to give this a shot. Honestly, I’m really glad I did because I ended up loving it!

Twice as Hard takes such a pleasantly surprising turn and the synopsis does not do the story justice. The sex scenes were raunchy and erotic as hell. I thought with it

Another read I jumped into mostly blind. I knew it was short, and that it was a menage, and... something about trespassing.
I loved it, and I'm pretty hard on short stories. They usually leave me feeling like something was missing, but not the case here. Very well done!

*This is a Window Seat Blog Review http://readinginthewindowseat.blogspo... *

This book is about so much more than the blurb let's on. So much more. And I loved every single page of it. Bardan is a word wizard, seriously, for being able to pack in so many different things into such a short book (it's about 110 pages). Obviously, seeing as how this is an erotica, there's lots of sex. But there's also a really interesting and complex story going on involving all of these characters that help breath

Amber Bardan has a way of writing that just sucks you in and has you reading a book that you normally wouldn't have read.....and then you are hanging onto every single word. She is one of those authors that no matter what the book is about....I'm guaranteed to love it.

Twice as Hard by Amber Bardan is a very hot erotic novella that catches you off guard in the beginning (trigger warning for the beginning half) and surprises you with a twist. If you're a fan of Alexa Riley's Taking What's Wicked you'll enjoy Twice as Hard.

Gabby is off on a trip, following notes left sent by her husband who left her a month prior. During one of her excursions, the note leads her on a hike to a waterfall where she ends up being caught skinny-dipping by two rugged men. Warned not
