In general, I’m not interested in romances about married couples. I’m single and one reason why I read romance is to see how it works out for other people. But none of my romance reading preferences are hard-set and when an author I love has a book with my least favorite trope or I’m won over by a premise that’s the opposite of my usual tastes, I’ll give it a shot. In this case, Elia Winters made a believer out of me. This was amazing!

ARC provided by NetGalley. I don’t know where to start this book was hot hot hot. Not what I was expecting at all. If you’re in the mood for a happily married couple who are looking to spice things up look no further this book will definitely light your kindle on fire!! I can’t wait to go back and read this first book of this series. Also this is my first book by this author
Thank you Netgalley and Entangled Publishing for the online copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This story is about a married couple who indulge in various sexual fantasy which escalate super lightning fast to the extend that is hard for my prudent brain to accept. Maybe they are couples who are like them in real life. Maybe. But even knowing that it doesn't make it easy for me to accept how easy (and fast) Sam changes from Mr

I think Elia Winters writes some of the best erotic romance out there. Yes, it is obviously SUPER OFF THE CHARTS SEXY, but she is just as attentive to the emotional journey of the characters, and I think that's what really sets her apart from other writers.

In this book, set in the same town of Mapleton MA, Sam and Abby have been married for 10 years. The book starts at her college reunion, where Sam really gets for the first time what a wild child she was back then. When they spy a couple havin

Just Past Two is an interesting, engaging story about a married couple who are completely in love but perhaps their relationship isn’t all it could be. After college, Abby buried her wild past like it was a shameful secret, determined to become what she believes a successful, respectable person should be. When her secrets start to come out at her college reunion, she’s scared of what her straight-laced husband, Sam, will think of her. Abby is shocked to l

IF you're looking for something steamy hot and kinky then this book won't disappoint you. The story revolves around a couple who have been married for ten years and only now realizing that there is so much they don't know about each other. The wife has a past that is full of embarrassing stories and the husband has fantasies he isn't comfortable sharing with his wife. However, all of this changes when they attend Abby's college reunion. Suddenly, Sam knows about his wife more than he ever has. A ...more

Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read this ARC early!
Though Abby and Sam’s relationship was really steamy and it started out really good, the conversations were just so cringe at times. Full review on my blog:
I've followed Elia Winters on Twitter for a while. She's hysterical and gives excellent advice about sex toys and other love-related topics. So, when I heard the first book in this series recently - and that the second book was available through NetGalley. Well, I pounced. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

And, honestly, the writing is top notch, with lots of humor and heart. We really see and understand the characters emotional journies. We also get full views int

I'm not sure how it's possible, but Just Past Two is even hotter than Three-Way Split. The plot is fairly straightforward: a married couple goes to a college reunion and events there set off a very sexy chain reaction. Their sex life has been reliable and consistent, but now they can be honest about their needs and fantasies and the results are a rollercoaster of sexual gratification and fear of rejection.

Because Elia Winters is well-versed in a variety of different types of romantic and sexual

I received an e-ARC of Just Past Two by Elia Winters from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I read the first book in this series and enjoyed the story of three people falling in love with each other. This book is more of a married couple becoming an open relationship couple. It gave me mixed feelings, and at the end of the day, I probably will avoid books about this type of relationship because I prefer commitment and exclusivity in my happily ever afters.

However, I think the author did

This was my first book by this author. Wow, can she write some sexy scenes. This is about a married couple Abby and Sam. It starts out with them attending Abby’s college reunion. She is very nervous because she used to be a very different person back then, wild, and doesn’t want her husband to think less of her. But her old friends of course start telling stories and her husband is very intrigued, and maybe aroused by some of the things his wife used to do. He is surprised by his reactions and A ...more

This book was hot, hot, hot!!! Abby has a past she would rather her husband not know about. Once he hears about her college antics at her 10 year college reunion, he is, to say the least, intrigued. Each sexual experience these two experiment with is hotter than the one before.
This is the first book I have read by this author but I will be going back to be sure I read everything she has written. The characters are likable and the storyline is well written. Definitely a book you won't want to mis

Just Past Two by Elia Winters. Book two in the Comes in Threes series. I've not read any books by author. I still enjoyed the book. A very spicy storyline with likable characters. I look forward to reading more by author.

Like her previous book Three-Way Split, I ate this book up. I couldn't get enough of this story. I enjoyed that this followed a different "kinks" than the other book. It was paced really good for a short book that followed this couples sexual journey.

I thought this was an interesting take on a popular topic in the erotic end of the romance genre at the moment. This looks at an established couple expanding their sexual relationship into a more open one and is an angle I haven't read before. However I didn't feel like the ends were sufficiently tied up by the end of the book which made it a less satisfying read all in.

I usually like to read these somewhat erotic romances. Winters' Just Past Two was not a win for me. It was about a married couple exploring some wild encounters that included additional persons in their bed. Can't say I really liked Abby and Sam Burke at all. "A copy of this book was provided by Entangled via NetGalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

It’s very, very sexy! It’s rare that you read an erotic romance about a couple who is already happily married. That’s what this is. It all starts at the wife’s 10 year college reunion, where the husband finds out how sexually adventurous his wife used to be. Then during the reunion, they become unintentional voyeurs and are inspired to have oral sex while watching (completely out of character for them). So begins their fantasy adventure which carries throughout the remainder of the book.

This is one of the hottest books I've read in a while. It didn't go overboard. I'm not going to lie, I need more! I really enjoyed this book. It was sexy and eventful. I liked how the author expressed their emotions and guilt as they figured out how to spice up their marriage. I loved how much Sam and Abby trusted each other to do everything they did. I would actually read this book many times later on. I would love to read more of this author's books.

I was looking forward to reading this book. I loved the idea of a married couple story. The beginning was interesting but I got lost the more I was reading it. Don't get me wrong I love sexy scenes in a book but on this one, it was just too many without emotions. Even though they were married, I did not feel the connection. This book is not going to deter me from reading more from this author.

The writing was decent I don't mind the subject matter either, but... I just didn't find it believable and that made it EXTREMELY difficult to get into and finish. I struggled hard.
