The most believable menage I've ever read in an erotic romance. I believed these people were going to work it out as an ongoing threesome and that they fit and needed each other. My favorite Emma Holly book (so far).

Hot. Puts the triple XXX in exotic sex. Not for the faint of heart.

Oh.My.Gawd. This book is a scorcher. If you have a problem with explicit sex then do not get this book.

I'm glad I finally found a chance to squeeze this book into my reading queue. It was a wonderful read... I could barely keep my hands off myself. The story starts out with what would be any woman's fantasy: Kate has two hot male housemates, Sean and Joe, living with her, and not only are they hot for each other, but they're hot for her too! After Kate discovers Sean and Joe together in her bedroom, Sean dares her to join them. What follows is a hot and steamy sexual relationship between the three of them, a ménage à trois, with all partners being faithful to one another, meaning they don't date or sleep with anyone else outside the threesome. Throughout this, Kate and Joe develop more serious feelings towards one another that go beyond sex and lust, and how these dynamics work within the current relationship is the subject of much of the book.

This is my 4th Emma Holly book and I definitely look forward to reading a lot more!

I had high hopes for this book but it was a snoozefest. It's not erotic as I expected. I didn't find it interesting. There is no tension, no romance, no hot sex. It would be more accurate to call this marathon sex, one scene after another, and most of the scenes are unimaginative and repetitive without any good character development or dialogue. There are just too many scenes where the two guys are getting it on and she's just a bystander. The ending is very lame and unbelievable. Pass on this. There are better books in this genre.

I do not usually read this hot of a book, but once doing so loved it. I like the story line that at least has a story. Yes tons of hot hot sex m/m/f and m/m but at least it had a beginning a middle and a decent ending. I would recommend this to those not faint of heart and to those who like to kick up the heat. Not a keeper, but a definate read.

Steamy. I liked the characters. Written in first person perspective. I didn't care much for the ending.

Couldn't get past the first 10 pages. Absolutely atrocious writing - reads more like a penthouse forum letter or some crap that belongs in a low budget erotic anthology. MUCH better exists out there, this is just AWFUL.

MUCH better erotic choices: Bondage, An Anthology of Passionate Restraint (1998, with a foreward by John Warren, unfortunately, this one doesn't have an ISBN, so you have to search by Title), The Way of a Man with a Maid and A Victorian Sampler (also no ISBN, both by anonymous author, 2002, part of a collection "The Erotic Library" published by Magic Carpet Inc). Oh, and of course, Anne Rice (writing as Anne Roquelaure) did better with Exit to Eden and the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy (The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty's Punishment, Beauty's Release).

Also, try literotica dot com, a hot source for all FREE erotic fiction and fantasy. Anything would be better than Ms. Holly's total lack of imagination and writing talent.
