Another of my "I'm-on-a-total-bi-menage-kick" purchases from All Romance Ebooks. Maybe the best of the ones I've read so far from my ebook shopping binge. There was only one area that kept the book from being really great.

Series Note:
No known series.

Quinn Preston has just been through a bad breakup when she has to attend a wedding and wear a wretched pink dress. She's chugging down some yummy drinks at the bar when she meets just about the sexiest guy ever, Logan Reed. Attraction sizzles

This was a really good book that was picked for me in a pick it for me challenge. Quinn Preston, a financial analyst, is not happy when her friends dare her to pick up a handsome stranger at a wedding reception. What better reason to give up men when her previous long-term relationship had not only been lackluster in the bedroom but he had cheated and broke up with her in an email.

I picked up this book because of a recommendation not thinking anything of it. I listened and enjoyed it, and then I went to review it on GR and found I had already read it.

It is interesting because I don’t remember reading it and usually I do, but I will say it was pretty great there are parts I am not completely sold on and parts I loved. There were a lot of sexy times. So if you in the mood for some MMF this has the story and the sexy times.

For me it’s all about the story, I want to know

I read mostly m/m romance books but I always have my eye out for a m/m/f ménage, especially one where there is still some m/m action and not just m/f action in the threesome. Double Dare fit the bill. I even liked Quinn from the beginning, she did not annoy me throughout. Oh, Logan and Ty...where can I find two men like them? Definately going on the hotness shelf. Beyond the well written sex scenes between the three of them, the two guys or a combination of the two, there was a connection ...more

It was cute and hot.. the ending seemed rushed, it just kinda ended. I wanted to find out what happened to her parents and to the boys business. I would definitely read this author again .

This is definitely one of the better menage books I've read lately. Despite the rapid development, the story is warm and wonderful. The guys have money, but it's not unlimited. The woman has a career and a family. The sex is steamy but not over the top.

I'll read the next one.

Yes, please!

When Quinn Preston met Logan Reed, the sparks immediately flew. When Quinn went home with him, she didn't expect Logan's longtime boyfriend Tyson White, but Quinn's more than willing to be the filling in a hot guy sandwich! With Logan and Quinn's wild chemistry, Ty isn't exactly certain where he fits in the scenario anymore, nor is Quinn sure of her place with the established couple. Thankfully, Logan is certain enough for the three of them.

Mmmmmm, yea…that's the stuff! I love

Wow. Just... wow.

Jeanne St. James just popped my menage book cherry, and she wasn't gentle at all. Not in the slightest.

Double Dare is book 1 of her Dare Menage Series, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure what to expect in a book like this, and I was pleasantly surprised by how intertwined the character's relationships are.

Was it hot? Of course. Smokin hot. I blushed and giggled more than once, y'all. But it was more than that.

Extremely hot sex scenes, but I struggled to get into the book rather. Logan in particular I found off-putting; it was never made clear if he had Tyson's consent to bring Quinn into their home and had sex with her, which makes his behaviour cheating. Which is something I don't care for.
Well written and full of scorching menage sex, including plenty of m/m action, but not quite my cup of tea, I'm afraid.
Double Dare by Jeanne St. James

I read this book a while ago but what I remember most about it is that the two men were awesome together. I mean scorching, sweat dripping and mouth watering (aka drooling on my part) hot together!!!

A really good interracial menage book. So good I have read it twice. A sequel would be nice to see how this threesome's relationship develops and how they handle some of the problems sure to come their way.

Ok, so I started off liking this one but the m/m/f factor never really worked for me. Everytime Quinn talked about 'her boys' I cringed and wanted to yell, "Heiffer, they're not yours!" The whole point of including a 'third' is they're supposed to provide something that wasn't there before (balance) or enhance what's already there. Quinn did neither.

I appreciate that the title is Double Dare, but the guys getting her to come over the second weekend by saying, "We dare you" was silly. How

4 star review of Double Dare (The Dare Menage Series #1) by Jeanne St James


This book contains M/M, BDSM and M/M/F themes and had me intrigued from the start.

Having listened and read several books by Jeanne St John I was interested in how Quinn Preston, Logan Reed and Tyson White would blend together, particular y since Logan and Tyson were already in a committed relationship when Quinn catches Logan’s eye.

When Logan takes a drunk Quinn home to sleep it off, she has no idea how her

2 good idea stars

Something different, a ménage with 2 guys. One black one white and a white girl. The author was trying really hard to be inclusive but every time she mentioned the black guy she alway referenced his color. It wasn’t needed and thus felt forced.

Plus when you find yourself skipping through the sex scenes that doesn’t bode well for the book. This felt like a forced we can love who we want regardless of gender or race, with a little bit of reality thrown in. And I mean a little. It

Have you ever met someone and found them to be kind of off putting, but then you have sex with the person anyway (because the person is hot) and then the sex is awesome so you don’t really care that the person is kind of annoying? That’s this book. You might feel dirty afterwards (because you don’t really like the person or the characters that much), but it was fun so what the hell? Besides it’s just a book. Minus one star for the pony tail, creepy introduction of Ty, and all the other annoying ...more

Very steamy, but the story arc and characters were not good. I was shocked when I discovered the h is in her 30s, she acted and her thoughts were college age. Acting like a child with her parents, and her ex, getting drink when she was a bridesmaid, no care at all for her friends, the H stopped her from drink driving, all validated her selfish nature. The guys were better, they felt like lovers, but wanting her was not believable. More depth to the story and less steam would have made this ...more

I wasn't sure why I picked up this book from Amazon, after it got home it just didn't seem like something I would want to read (M/M/F) -- but, instead, it kept me up later last night than I should have stayed up reading it. It was a lovely little fantasy and I have hopes that Logan, Ty and Quinn will make it work.

Logan, Ty and Quinn will leave you feeling envious that you couldn’t come up with a MMF like they have. Definitely one that will have you reading in one sitting because it’s just too hot to put down. Those three had chemistry and then some. Ms. St. James will have you laughing and needing a cold shower all in this one book.

I received this book as an ARC for a freely given honest review.

After finishing Boys in Blue: Max I had to read more by Jeanne and pre ordered the next in the series Marc, but the problem was it's not out until the 12th and I had to read more from her so I got this and a few others that she's written knowing they'd all be great after reading Max.
Wow! I wasn't disappointed it grabbed me from the first page. It's the sort of book that you lose track of time and you're half way through it before you take a breath.

I was introduced to Quinn, Logan and Ty while reading some of the later books in the series when they seem so settled and have become parents and the model for living this type of family life. I never would have guessed Quinn's meeting with Logan happened in such an outlandish way. She is bridesmaid with two of her friends wearing repulsive Pepto-Bismal taffeta dresses, getting drunk and hating her life and her ex boyfriend, when her friends double dare her to pick up the good looking divorced ...more
This is acceptably written erotica with the plot existing only to connect one sex scene to the next. The sex scenes were initially hot but by mid way though the author had already exhausted every possible combination and I grew bored and ending up skipping the rest of the sex scenes, especially the uncomfortable non-consensual roll playing bit that the guys sprung on the unsuspecting Quinn.

When Logan sees Quinn, their attraction is instant and the pull towards each other is electric. Quinn gets intoxicated and Logan is a gentleman.

I never know what to expect from menage, it's a subgenre that is out of my comfort zone. Each time I listen, I think, nah, that isn't really for me. This time, I have to say, I loved the story. Jeanne St. James has written a taboo romance so eloquently, but with so much heat, that I don't think most realize the powerful story behind it. Logan and Ty are in a loving relationship, but have considered having a woman join them. Logan meets Quinn, a beautiful woman and is instantly attracted to her. ...more

Wow! Just wow! I have been a fan of Jeanne St James for a while. And this has been on my TBR for just as long. I have been missing out. I adored Quinn! She is a woman who has just been dumped by her long time boyfriend. She is aggravated because she has to be in a wedding wearing an ugly dress. Good thing there's an open bar. Her two best friends dare her to pick up another man. Logan just happens to be available. He dances with her and is taken by her beauty even in the ugly dress. But he has ...more

I actually really enjoyed reading this book. Story was good and characters were interesting. I was not really feeling the ending though. I felt as though the story felt incomplete, especially since I believe the rest of the series is based on the stories of different characters. There were a few unanswered questions and it sort of left you having to come up with your own conclusion for how you believe it ended. Other than that, the book was really good. It had me hot and bothered throughout most ...more
