My rating: 2 1/2 of 5 stars
Astrophysicist Meredith Burke’s professional life is perfect. Her personal life is another story. Years ago, a menage with the man she loved and his roommate left her with a broken heart and a secret. She hasn’t trusted anyone since, but when she meets rugged hunting guide Charlie Connor she figures she doesn’t need to. He’s got “one-night stand” written all over him.
After one night with Meredith, Charlie needs more. She’s intoxicating, and shockingly willing to give him total control of her body. When she agrees to spend an entire week with him at the lodge where he works, it’s more than he’d hoped for. But Blaine Bridges, Charlie’s best friend and boss, has his own secrets.
Blaine hasn’t seen Meredith since that disastrous encounter eight years ago, but he still has feelings for her. Now she’s dating his best friend, the man he wants for himself. When Meredith invites him to join in their naughty play, his pleasure is all-consuming. But will the secrets they all hold close destroy a beautiful beginning or bring these three lovers closer than they ever imagined?
2 1/2 Stars!
I am not sure what it is about this series but I just can’t fall in love with these books. When I read the blurbs I am always excited to read them thinking I will love them but it just never happens. I am disappointed that this book did not live up to my expectations.
It had so much potential but seemed to fall flat. The idea of a woman having a disastrous experience with a menage while in college. Years later falling for a guy and be introduced to his best friend/boss who turns out to be one of the guys she had had that disastrous menage with, seemed intriguing to me. I am pretty sure I would have found the story a lot more enjoyable if I would’ve like the main female character but I really couldn’t stand her.
I did like both of the men in the story, Blaine and Charlie (Blaine more so than Charlie) and in truth I could’ve been happy for the story to be more about the two of them falling in love and having Meredith as more of the catalyst that made it happen. When I read menage I look for that undeniable chemistry between the characters, the naturalism for all three of them to be together. they have to work better together as three than just two. I didn’t feel that with Meredith, Blaine and Charlie.
As for the story outside of their relationship/ the subplot, I didn’t find it interesting enough to truly pull me in. I wasn’t invested in it and found myself skimming through it.
