Glutton for Pleasure
They’re craving something sweet. She likes it spicy.
Devi Malik knows how to heat things up. She does it every night as head chef in her family’s Indian restaurant. Her love life, though, is stuck in the subzero freezer. Now, with a chance to fulfill a secret fantasy with her long-time crush and his brother, it’s time to put her desire on the front two burners.
Erotica disguised as romance, leaving much to be desired (see what I did there) as much as plot and character development goes. Also, head hopping.
A chubby heroine (well, a size 7) who is too insecure and defines self-worth through male affirmation.
The D/s bits are amusingly ridiculous.
Random use of the term agoraphobic to mean antisocial.
Anything positive? Eh. Some of the sex is hot, I guess?
I'm not a fan of the brother who share trope but I kept reading anyway.
What made me stop was the "We're kinky because we were abused" trope. I HATE that and I hate the idea that Devi would have to deal with (and be the solution to?!) to their damage.
I'm disappointed :(

Yes, only two.
No, I did not. But there are parts that really pissed me off.
But let’s dive into it from the start.
I love the premise. A chubby, voluptuous shy young woman gets the opportunity to an amazing threesome with impossibly attractive dark twins. They have amazing sex, there is a little drama, and the former insecure girl blooms into the sexual being she always was, finding love among the way in form of two fantastic men.
I like Devi ...more
I enjoyed this. It is a very sexy menage romance between good girl Devi, a chef at her family's Indian restaurant, and twins Jace (lawyer) and Marcus (accountant). What promises to be a outrageous and sexually adventurous one night stand becomes a two week long affair that promises so much more. I love reading about a curvy heroine getting her men, and I really liked Devi. She's sweet and pragmatic but never a pushover. Also, let's take a moment to savor the yummy smutty twin trope, shall we?
When I first read Glutton for Pleasure it was one of the first ménage books I read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not a huge fan of M/F/M ménage especially when the men are related but given the history with these two men I understood it and to this day I still enjoy this story. One man who wants a lasting relationship, one man who wants a night of fun and a woman who despite some initial reservations decides to take a chance and enjoy ever ...more
For me, most of Rai's book (at least the ones ...more
I just love when I got a freebie that turns out to be deliciously good!
This one has an interracial mènage which is a first for me in and of itself (the interracial part that is). Pretty interesting to see how Devi, who comes from a conservative Indian family, stood up to fight for her love for not one, but TWO IRISH TWINS!
A fast, sexy read. Couldn't ask for a better Weekend Read! Apologies, I've been addicted to Major Lazer's Lean On lately. Pretty apt imo. And Diplo is just crazy hot. ...more
When i first saw an interview of Alisha Rai, I knew I just had to read her books. I just had a feeling it would be good. And she definitely didn't disappoint.
But the biggest reason I wanted to read this was because it's an erotica... with a brown girl at the forefront. Shouldn't be mind blowing but it sadly is as this is the first I've read of it's kind. Seems like a radical idea that brown women also like sex but with India having the second largest ...more
This book really wasn’t my cup of tea. I asked for recs for ménage romances for a reading challenge I’m doing and got lots of suggestions, including this one. Since I already had the second book in this series on my TBR, it seemed liked the best choice.
I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read from Rai so far and am slowly working my way through her books, but this was a letdown. My main issue is I felt the characters were really underdeveloped (especially the brothers) and I never felt their connect ...more
What can I say? It's her first published work, so the quality is nowhere near her latest, Hate to Want You. It's straight off erotica instead of erotic romance, so while Devi is a lovely tease of a potentiality awesome character, Jace and Marcus are mostly cardboard. Some good moments, but shaky at best.

But then Jace shows up on the wrong night and he has a date. They ask to meet the chef and Devi walks out to serve them only to discover that the date is his twin brother Marcus.
And they have an offer: both of them, one night, no co ...more
Alas. Not to be.
There is that very fine line with erotica between character/story/romance (or, if you prefer a less loaded term: relationship) and sex. Some writers can do character and story and develop a H/h relationship in a handful of pages, paragraphs or even words ...more
Devi is a chef at her family's restaurant. She's a little insecure, inexperienced and she considers herself to be the least attractive one out of her and her two other s ...more
I did not love the heroes. If you don’t like twin brothers sharing a woman, this won’t work for you at all. The main thing I didn’t like, though, was that the sex felt coersive. Boundaries were unclearly made, trod over, and safewords treated like a silly notion that the heroine sh ...more
But... this story had me thinking.
Do I like the story or not? Yes, and no.
NO: because, I'm frustrated with the fact that two Irish guys got it easy. There first date got accepted in first ten pages. And the girl went from sweet, nice to menage-sex crazy in a mere time of twelve hours.
Though, I had to admit, I liked the writing a lot.
The writing was exceptional. Not many ...more
This is one panty wetting read! Damn I had to fan myself more than once.
I really enjoyed getting to know Devi, Jace, and Marcus. They are truly a match made in heaven. Devi is a quite workaholic who dreams of beautiful love. While Jace is a smooth talking and sexual man made for women. He knows his way around a courtroom, bed or mall. He's the sweet boy you've always dreamed of. While Marcus is everything you're daddy told you to stay away from. He's hot, sexy, dominating, and to ...more
