it was amazing

5 F@@K ME THAT WAS HOT STARS!!!

November 2013 has been a very “out of the box” month for me in that I have visited book genres that you would not normally find on my TBR. Crossing The Line by Karla Doyle is definitely outside of my normal book requirements in that it is a story about ménage. I am not a prude on any level, but I have to say this subject matter has never really appealed to me; in all honesty it is not a genre that I would actively look for under normal circumstances.

However, I am happy to make an exception, when it comes to an author as talented as Karla is. I have read every book she has released, and she never lets me down. Her plots are well thought out, researched and easy to read. She always offers a hot distinctive male lead (in this case two), and a kick ass heroine. The dialogue is funny, emotional, sometimes brutal, and her writing style grabs you, pulls you in and doesn’t let you go until the very end.

Derrick and Hanna are your typical well adjusted married couple, they have a healthy sex life, like experimentation and aren’t afraid to try anything in (and out of) the bedroom. Jeremy is Derrick’s best friend, and things could have been so very different, if it wasn’t for the toss of a coin.

Karla always writes hot innovative sex, and this book is no different. I have to say I don’t really have a frame of reference when it comes to the M/F/M aspects but I found their interactions hot (voyeurism is definitely not a problem for this couple) and Hanna has mad skills with vegetables, and by that I don’t mean in the kitchen ;-)

I can’t say I will go out of my way to now read ménage after Crossing The Line, but as always and what made this 5 Stars for me is the fact that Karla gave me a great story, with well established characters, they encountered real problems and dealing with the consequences of their actions, after the weekend the three of them spent together was quite the rollercoaster I can tell you.

I loved Derrick and his demons. I have a huge soft spot for men who don’t mind getting dirty for a living, have a little ink and that ride a motorbike –

“That’s what monsters do. We scare Princesses.”

It didn’t hurt that he also struggled with demons from his past, and wasn’t afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve around Hanna –

“I would’ve died for you, and now you’re fucking killing me.”

Jeremy pushed all the right buttons too….so yeah I wouldn’t mind being Hanna!!

I really cannot say enough about how highly I rate Karla’s work, and if you are like me and not a major ménage fan, I would urge you to check out her other books (links below). Either way you won’t be disappointed.
