4 stars but it could easily be a 5 for the sex I'm really undecided.. First up this is a menege story with a BDSM theme so if either of those ick you out go no further:)

Jane is a party planner, celibate by choice for a year and about to attend a BDSM themed Birthday party she helped to organize. Birthday boy is Antonio, Santos his wingman.

From the moment he sets eyes on her, Antonio wants her and fortunately from him Jane is of a like mind it seems that 24Hrs of hot sex will be just the thing.

When I first bought this book eight years ago, I thought this was completely revolutionary. The writing sucked me in, and the plot was everything I was hoping for in a romance novel.

Now, eight years later, my reading tastes have changed. I found myself not as in love with the characters and the plot, as I did when I was a senior in high-school.

I'm still going to give this a 3-star rating because of how much I loved it back then, but I'm probably not going to be picking this up again.

3 stars. Lots of erotic dom/sub and ménage sex. I’d prefer a little more story and emotional connection.

STORY BRIEF:
Peter was a lawyer, married with children. He had a two year affair with Jane, who didn’t know he was married. When she learns of this, she breaks up with him. He tells her no man could ever please her because she wants too much sex. Later, she attends a weekend party where dom/sub activities will be occurring. Antonio and his best friend Santos are at the party. They like to have

Always a fan of Dominique Adair I really enjoyed this story. Each of the stories went into each other seamlessly. The growth of the main character, Jane Porter is revealing. She takes back her life and puts it into the hands of men that really, truly care about her. If you're not into sexy reads then this book isn't for you. For those who enjoy a little bondage in their books, they will be unable to put it down.

I enjoyed this, quite fun to read, but man, there were many things wrong that I grew extremely frustrated with. Adair can write a scene like few I've read (super HOT!) but how she portrays bdsm lifestyle really bothered me. These are simply great escapist erotic stories that I am almost tempted to place on my fantasy shelf even though no true fantasy was involved. :)

I really liked this at first, but by the end it became little more than porn without plot (the barest minimum amount squashed into the last twenty pages) and Jane was saddled with the damsel in distress role I have come to despise.

I just finished this book last weekend. The book is very steamy and is sex, sex from basically page one. It explores the Sub and Dom relationship and also the two guys one girl type of sandwich. If you have fantasy's of being in a threesome with two spanish guys this books for you.

This book came with a warning, which I took as a challenge! It was enjoyable. Heads up, it was very sexually graphic, hence the warning. Although it was missing a few words here and there required to make complete sentences, it was still good.

Erotica romance combined with great characterization, fast paced and fun-decent plot. A great read, kept me occupied and distracted on the elliptical.
