I was in the mood for a spicy, fun and easy read and that is exactly what I got!

This is the first book about Bliss, Colorado. A sexual sanctuary, where all kinks are out in the open. I absolutely adored this quirky town and all its crazy inhabitants. I would recommend leaving your sense of reality behind, and dive into the spicy craziness of this series. I will definitely read on! It will be my go-to "relax my brain with some yummy book candy"-series.

I really like menage stories and have read some good ones but this was one of those that just did not do it for me!!

The characters irritated me...the hairy nudists, the alien thing, the little town of Bliss and it's occupants, the instant falling in love, which just did not ring true for me....but that's just my opinion.

I know that there are a lot of readers who enjoyed the story but I was not "grabbed"!!

I will probably read the next book in the series and hopefully it will do something more for

This man tore away all her defenses and inhibitions.

A litte suspense with a whole lot of sexy makes Three To Ride one titillating read! I first got curious about Lexi's Bliss series when she hinted at it in Nobody Does It Better. As I hadn't yet read this series that she initially released under her Sophie Oak pen name yet, I was instantly intrigued.

Rachel Swift is a heroine that I clicked with right away. This is a woman that's trying everything to escape a dangerously obsess

descriptionOddly enough, I did not enjoy this one upon rereading as much as I did when I first read is AGES ago. This time around I found it frustrating that Rye isn't included in Max's and Rachel's relationship until 80% into the book. I guess nowadays I prefer my menages to start on equal footing and not with two people already dating, having sex, and in love, while the third sits on the outside looking on in sadness <--- slightly dramatic, but that is kind of how it felt for me (shrug).

Okay...totally didn't know if I could handle this one. Ms. Oak has presented two delicious twin cowboys for us to fall head over heels for in this book. And these delicious twin cowboys like to share. (My husband is a twin...didn't know if it would be too much of an ick factor for me.)But I got an ARC copy in my hands and wasn't about to not read it, possible ewie factor be damned.

I was pleasantly surprised, as I was introduced to Max and Rye (short for Ryan) and really got to know them as peopl
“Why shouldn’t she have this? Why should she deny herself.”

Rachel, Max, and Rye…three wonderful characters that stole my heart years ago, are back in a re-released, second edition of THREE TO RIDE by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak. With a couple of new chapters as well as some additional new content, I was absolutely SMITTEN all over again! If you haven’t ventured to Bliss, Colorado, you are FOR SURE missing out on something special. I can’t even begin to tell you the feeling of peace and

Who would've thought that I would one day be reading and reviewing an erotica? And an M/F/M erotica, at that?

And who would've thought it would be A Court of Thorns and Roses triggering that urge deep inside me? I mean, come on, surely you've noticed the oozing hotness of Tamlin and Rhysand and imagined yourself sandwiched between them? Surely, I' m not the only one thinking of such a thing?!

From hot faeries to sexual cowboy twins with seemingly large, hot, humongous AND throbbing "members"...

What a funny read! I'm a big fan of quirky and you definitely get that with the townspeople of Bliss. You have a nudist colony, a mountain man who believes in aliens and a moose that visits people. Bliss seems to be the town where people in trouble stop at and never leave. This is true for our heroine, Rachel (Liz). She's on the run for her life from a stalker who happens to be a cop. When her car breaks down in Bliss, Colorado, everyone welcomed her with open arms.

A feisty young woman on the run from a stalkerish cop/ex-boyfriend lands in a small, quirky Colorado town (Bliss). The town is filled with colorful characters and a liberal attitude. And two smokin' hot twin brothers--Max and Rye Harper. Max and Rye own a ranch where cranky Max is a sort of "horse whisperer" and charming Rye is the town sheriff. Max and Rye are looking for the perfect woman to share and make their wife without much luck, until they spot the town diner's sexy new waitress. Almost ...more

I LOVED this story. The interaction between the heroine and the twin, yes I said TWIN, hero's was great. There were so many times when I laughed out loud and actually snorted (I don't snort). The love scenes were HOT and there was a villian that was truly evil. The secondary characters were great too and I am going to start reading Callie's story now and hope soon there will be Stephan's story. I wanted this story to go on and on. I live in Colorado now and am ready to move to Bliss, Colorado.

ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review


Three to Ride by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak is one unconventional erotic romance. The title alone will give you a hint that this book is not of the normal romance as it deals with a ménage à trois with twin brothers who share everything and that also means their woman. Since this book was a fast paced book, I won’t say much but I will say this book was hot, passionate, and a sexy bliss of love.

As I’m just getting into the ménage erotica, I’m starting to get the feeling that authors think that only Colorado cowboys like to “share their toys”. Maybe they think they’re the only kind of guys that are man enough for the task, or they’re like me and firmly believe that a man in a good pair of wranglers and can ride a horse is just too sexy to pass up.

Whatever, the case I’m one satisfied reader. The identical twins Alex and Ryan are finger-licking good! Alex has a sour mean boy attitude that

There is just something about the way Sophie Oak pulls a naughty story together that just gets me going! There are only so many story lines that an author can make up that make them seem unique, not just the same story with different characters. Although all of the stories I have read by this author have similar elements, they are just different enough that I can actually read them back to back without getting bored!

I have clearly lost my marbles! Anyone who knows me, knows that I avoid ménage like the plague. But for some reason I was really craving a m/f/m where the men do not touch. So this just worked for me even though the two men were brothers. I still really liked Max more than Rye in the end.

I really liked the ménage plot here; the sex was HOT and I was perfectly ok with the brothers wanting to share Rachel!! There was no jealousy or angst between them once they became a ménage. My only issues were

4 1/2 stars! A fun, hot, emotional story set in the quirky town of Bliss.

This book sort of reminded me of the craziness on the classic show Green Acres, but with a lot of steam and nakedness. Max and Rye, twins with such different personalities but each one delicious in his own way. Rachel is strong, sassy, sexy and willing to take them both on. Wow!! Lots of laughs, great supporting characters and a little bit of suspense. I can't wait to go back to Bliss for another visit.

I am no stranger to Lexi Blake and her amazing books. However, I am a newbie to her writing as Sophie Oak. This is the third book I have read by her as Sophie but a first in this series. I am slowly finding myself enjoy these books just as much as Lexi's other books. They still have Lexi's great story telling to them, but they are definitely more on the side of ménage a trois, which isn't a fave of mine.

Three to Ride is exactly what you can assume - a ménage a trois. The reason I was

Leigh's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

A sexy sheriff that’s dominant in bed and a rugged, surly horse trainer that is surprisingly caring and sweet. Both wanting to take care of the same woman. At the same time. Oh, and did I mention that they were twins? Twins! Yes, please.

Having already been drawn in by Sophie Oak’s writing style and larger than life characters in the Texas Siren’s series, I was eager to read more by this fantastic author…and Ms. Oak did not disappoint in the l
3.5 stars

I usually prefer my menage stories to have an M/M component...but sexy identical twins work too.

Rachel shows up in Bliss Colorado and Max is immediately smitten. So much so that he decides to try a solo relationship instead of involving his brother Rye. They usually share their women and hope to find the perfect lady to start a triad family.

There is some major insta-love here and the plot had some flaws but all in all not bad.
~3,75 stars~

Sexy and fun read, this is what to read by someone who is a beginner to menage ;) I wish this was my first menage story. The writing's good, story is believable, the chemistry's there...easy to read.
I only find it a bit rush for the twins, especially Rye, and Rachel to connect.
3.25 Twinsies-stars

I liked the town, LOVED the brothers! A fun book in which you will find very well-hung males all over town...I should totally move to Bliss, CO. Towards the end I was somewhat skipping pages. Still, I loved the characters and the menage aspect is done well.

Apparently whether she's writing as Sophie Oak or her more regularly known to me name, Lexi Blake writes stories that I love to read.

This story of danger, suspense, crazy small town folk and, most importantly, love had me flying through the pages.

My compassion and engagement with Rachel was instantly in place as I read about the events that lead her to Bliss, CO. Then the ways she interacted with Max and Rye had my emotions going through all the wonderful romance feelings. Laughter and smiles.
One blind date later and a year of torment, Rachel Swift is on the run. After repeated efforts to keep her stalker at a distance she has no other recourse than to change her identity and flee.

A year later Rachel ends up in Bliss and she has caught the eye of town terror Max Harper. Max has a reputation for his temper, but when it comes to Rachel he has been on his best behavior. Growing up he had always planned to share a woman with his twin and town Sheriff Rye Harper, but after years of their

A beautifully well crafted story that I would recommend to anyone that doesn't have a problem with a menage story.
What makes this a great story is Sophie Oak's ability to create funny and lovable characters and she doesn't stop with the three main characters, but creates a whole community of quirky characters to breath life into the small town of Bliss. With nudists, a paranoid alien-abductee and a hen-mother ruling the local café the Harper brother's preference for sharing a woman doesn't seem
Bliss,, what an idyllic setting for a menage! This is definitely a good one. Rachel is a spitfire...she does not take any crap from these two guys...and best yet, they LOVE that about her! She's very proud, very independent, and very strong. Max and Rye...oy. I'll take these two over the Falladay twins (Cameron and Chase from Wicked Pleasure and Only Pleasure) ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. I thought this plot was very good. Interesting how these girls always seem to start out as waitresses ...more

“Max felt his eye twitching. He knew he should be yelling, but his limbs wouldn’t move. This was what it felt like to be paralyzed with rage. Yes, he was going to do it. He was going to finally go utterly psychotic and prove the whole town right. He was going to walk over to those arrogant assholes and take the first one apart. Then he’d beat the other one to death with his dead brother’s leg. He looked to his own brother. Rye would save him from his towering rage. Rye would have calming words. Rye would talk him down.
Rye’s face was red as he pointed at the young cowboys. “You, kill now, Max.”
