1+2=3 (+2 because it's better than that) ménagealicious stars for DARE TO BE THREE!

Paige Reed and her husband Connor Morgan have been searching for the right man to join their lives, and their bed. They think they've found him in the quietly stoic former professional football player Graedon Ward. But while Grae might be the strong silent type, he's nothing but bossy in the bedroom. At first, they all are happy in this playful arrangement they have…but Grae wants more from the two of them. The o

I don't like menages where I feel like the relationship isn't equal, which is what I felt here. I feel like graedon liked Paige way more than he liked Connor. If it's going to be an mmf, make it a true mmf. ...more

4.5 star review of Dare To Be Three (The Dare Menage Series #3) by Jeanne St James

Audio Review:

Narrated by Ava Lucas, JF Harding and Sean Crisden this was an engaging story that kept my attention throughout.

I love a woman (and a man) who knows what or who they want and goes for it. When Paige and her husband Connor see Graedon Ward they are both immediately attracted and intrigued by him. Connor is bi curious and Paige makes it clear to Grae that it is a package deal with them both or there is

Other readers feel that this series is getting stronger, but I'm not feeling it. The first one was outstanding, #2 and #3 were just meh. I realize that the stories needs to evolve or they'll become repetitive, but this lacked the sizzle and joy of the first one.

I may read the next one, as I'm a fan of the theme.

I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

I thought th characters were well developed. The sex scenes were hot! I love the possibilities one can explore with menage romances. I highly recommend for fans of the genre. This is well written and has a great plot line!
Jul 26, 2018 rated it it was ok
This book is way weaker than the first book in the series. The dialogue is stilted and the scenes forced and award. Nothing transpires in anything remotely plausible fashion. Scenes unfold like they were lifted from some porn flick in which there are just a few hasty lines to lead into the next sex scene. There is no emotion, no relationship development. Instead there is just an endless list of demands issued by Graedon the guy that the married couple, Paige and Connor have decided to pursue. Th ...more

This is the third book in the series and we meet Paige Reed in book one - she is Logan's sister and fantasies about a ménage. Paige's husband, Connor Morgan seems to go along for the ride.

Retired due to near-fetal heart defect, former football player Graedon Ward takes Paige's fancy at a party and she invites him to "play". Grae likes to be dominant and soon establishes rules and what starts off as a simple arrangement soon becomes quite intense between the three of them.

Each time I listen to one of Jeanne St James's books, I know I am in for a good story. This one caught me up in the budding relationship of Conner, Paige and Graedon. Paige and Conner are married and looking to find that piece to make their relationship even better. When Graedon, ex-NFL player comes in, he may just be the man to for the job. What I love about the Dare Menage series, is St. James while building the relationships of the characters, there is always an underlying story that makes th ...more

Jeanne St. James' The Dare Menage series is HOT, but it's so much more. St. James' creates characters you can't help but fall in love with. They are so delightfully flawed, they feel as real as the people you interact with daily.

We meet Paige and Connor earlier in the series. Paige is Logan's sister. As a couple, they've seen what healthy and successful triads, and are interested in exploring the possibility themselves. While they are intrigued by the idea, they also don't want to risk what they

What happens when you take a happily married couple and add a domineering man to the mix? An explosion of passion, lust, love, and exploration.
For Grae, it isn't the question of whether he finds the married couple attractive. It's whether Paige and Connor can go from being a couple to a threesome.
Listen in as Paige and Connor go from being a seamlessly smooth couple and try to just as seamlessly become a threesome with the sexy Grae.
I have always found the topic of a threesome to be uber sexy
Unfortunately, I didn't connect to this one. It seemed a bit like Grae said he felt, he was a third wheel to Paige and Connor's relationship. In the book, I never got to see them really come together as one unit, so it just wasn't believable to me. And honestly, in my mind, I'm not sure that I believe that Grae would ever garner the same amount of weight in their triad, which may have affected my enjoyment of the book overall.

Regarding the audiobook: the narration was great, I just wish there wo

Poor Connor

Missing the chemistry between all three. I didn't think Grae was very nice in bed or outside of it. He doesn't talk to them and then complains he felt excluded. What a tease at the end - grrr.

While I agree with another review that Paige and Connor left Grae out, I'm also thinking Connor was not really involved much. The sex was very hot but it almost always seemed it was just Paige and Grae. There was absolutely no chemistry with Connor and Grae - not even sure Grae liked Connor. Wit

Wow! Brilliant in every way.

God I love Jeanne's books so much. You get lost in the words feeling like you are part of it, it's so much more than reading it's the emotion that goes with it, every turn of the page pulls you further into the story. You want Paige to help Grae find himself and realise what she's felt all along, both her and Connor know but he has to work it out.
The way she writes is amazing I just love her style, she knows how the emotions flow through everyone and how they would f

He was dark. So dark, the rich, deep tone of his skin reminded her of ripe plum.

Ripe plum? *Googles*

Purple bluish fruit...

Snippets of dialogue without monologues in between.
“I won’t harm you.”
“In case you’re worried since we’re alone together,”
“Some women are afraid of black men,”
“You tell me. You’re a white woman.”

That was just cringe. I couldn't keep going.

Holly Molly! SO SO HOT HOT! This one was the best story in this series! So full of emotions, anxiety, real feelings when an established relationship would invite someone new there. I never thought that I would get these many emotions from this book - angst, love, steam, happiness. Ms. St. James did a great job here! Hopefully, I will have the pleasure to read the next book in that series soon.

Intense is the best word to describe Dare to be Three. Fantasy’s divulged some tantalizingly fulfilled, but jealousy gets in the way when one feels like a side dish while Ava Lucas, J.F. Harding and Sean Crisden tell us about this promising, wonderful relationship. In Jeanne St. James signature way.

OMG Grae

This is a great addition to the series. Grae is so freaking hot and the way he just takes overs is hot. Paige is in a world all by herself but she loves her guys and will not yet anyone halfass anything the three of them. Conner is so laid back and let's nothing get to him. Grae holds things in and keeps himself closed off. Paige breaks down his walls and makes it clear she want let him hide. Conner falls for Grae and Grae can't believe how much he loves them already.

This series gets better and better with each book. This book was really hot.

Each of the characters were really nice and easy to fall for. It was great reading each of the characters and what this meant for each of them.

Really enjoyable series.

Really enjoyed this story. How he supported his wife in what she wanted, in the end finding what he wanted too. Was a great read, with ménage scenes in it.
Narration was awesome too.

I really liked this but wanted Grae to be more open. We never got his background/history from him or him actually telling Conner and Paige. That aside, I would totally still recommend this!
I didn't care for this story as much. I never felt the connection between the 3 of them. And I completely agreed that they left Grae out. You'd think the shiny new toy would get more attention, but I guess not. So this story wasn't quite as blissfully happy as I like, but it was still as good addition to the series.

Whoa! Sean Crisden does a great DEEP male voice, and JF Harding did an Australian accent, too.

Very well written, hot, steamy romance. What else could it be? It is a menage and is written by Ms. St. James.
Good story. Likeable and well thought-out characters. Great chemistry. Very very hot kindle melting love scenes. A quick enjoyable read.
