Derrick loves his wife Hanna with a depth and desperation that knows no bounds. Unable to give her the child that she so desperately wants, he gives his sexually adventurous wife everything else that she craves. For her birthday he decides to grant her fantasy – a threesome that includes his best friend Jeremy to whom she is attracted. They agree set ground rules and do it just once before going back to being just friends. But while everything appears to go smoothly on the surface, the ménage weekend reopens old wounds and insecurities.
Author Karla Doyle lures the reader down a path that is both erotic and disastrous, where one is titillated and fearful as tragedy unrolls in slow motion. From the beginning, the characters are so engaging and real, and their love and friendship so palpable, it makes us believe that maybe free lunches do exist, maybe a loving, devoted couple can have a fantasy weekend ménage without repercussions. But then cracks appear and widen right before our eyes.
As with her other books, Ms. Doyle writes with a witty, punchy style and cranks up the heat to scalding. But Crossing the Line crosses over to the dark side, where there is price to pay for sexual fun and games. Although it has its strong romantic elements, I would classify Crossing the Line as erotica, rather than erotic romance. But whatever it is, it’s a five star read!
