When executive woman Katie Warren arrives in the picturesque village of Little Marplethorpe for a country holiday, to reassess her life and her future, she doesn’t bargain on ending up in a hot three way love affair with a man she’s admired from afar… and his gorgeously handsome male partner.
Marcus Dane and Owen Foster are lovers, committed for a lifetime, but they both enjoy the company of women as friends and bedmates too. Encountering Katie at an exhibition of his work, Marcus knows she’s just the kind of bold, daring, imaginative woman who’ll relish sharing erotic games with Owen and himself.
But what none of the trio expects is that their intense, steamy threesome will quickly deepen into a bond that’s a lot more than just simply fabulous sex.
This is about Katie who has come into some money and goes away to spend some time thinking of her future. She runs into Marcus and Owen, of course there’s immediate chemistry, and they have seriously hot time during her vacation. Katie knows that this is just an affair for the very much in love couple she’s lost herself to, but will take what she can get. She didn’t count on the men falling for her also.
I did like this story, especially the scenes of Marcus and Owen. The sex was plentiful and very, very hot. I just didn’t connect with the characters and it felt rushed to me. Katie was just too stupid to breathe at times. The plot was a bit narrow and that may be due to the brevity of the story. This was a very quick read.
If you’re looking for something fast, steamy, and a bit fun that will leave you happy with the ending this is for you. Be warned there is definitely M/M action (which was well written), just so you know if that’s not your cuppa.
