Blurb/Synopsis:  Five years ago Dahlia Adair left her business partners, the two men she loved. Unable to choose between them, she vanished with their venture capital and their hearts. Betrayed by the woman they both love, Todd Shelton and Cooper Montgomery dissolved their company and their friendship.

When Todd and Cooper reunite, they can't move forward with their new business until they confront the woman who called them "interchangeable" before she disappeared.

Five years later, Dahlia wants to live without looking over her shoulder, Todd wants his love and his friend back, and Cooper wants answers. With the help of Madame Eve and 1Night Stand, they give Dahlia the chance to live free of repercussions for her crimes if she’ll agree to spend one night with them, vowing to make her aware of their differences, and offer her a life they're sure she can't refuse.

Excerpt



“We want what you didn’t give us before.” Though he tried to appear casual, relaxed, Cooper’s jaw twitched, betraying his tension.



The money. No doubt the money. She took hold of the edge of the table, trying to stop her shaking. “What might that be?”


“The chance to know about the other.” He strummed his fingers on his knee.


Todd put a hand on her shoulder. “The chance to show you the difference.”


They didn’t mention anything about money. Her stomach twisted at the way Cooper stared her down as if daring her to say no, and she shifted her gaze to Todd.

His eyes remained clouded, half closed. The answer to her question came in the form of heat igniting between her thighs. She shifted in her seat. What were they offering, a challenge, a choice, or her ultimate fantasy?

“What if I say no?”

Neither man answered.

One night with them. Her mind screeched to a halt. Instead of her dream, she pictured tomorrow morning, getting back on a plane to South America, returning to the small marketing consulting gigs that barely paid her rent, and spending her nights waiting to be found out. She needed to locate her spine and get what she truly needed out of the night. “One night and we part?”

Todd moved in closer. “Isn’t this what you always wanted?”

Yes, that was everything she wanted and planned for five years ago. Of course, back then it wasn’t one night, it was forever.

Wait, she couldn’t want. Her wants didn’t count.

What she needed was to get up in the morning without a bulls-eye on her back.

She licked her lips. “No repercussions or retaliation?” They both knew her well and understood her question.

Silence. Even the waves seemed to stop.

At last, they both nodded.

She took a breath. When she walked away tomorrow, she’d make sure she didn’t replace the bull’s-eye with a heart broken beyond repair, and haunting memories.

Decision made, she pushed her chair back, and stood. “Did you get a room?”

Rather than living her fantasy, she would give them theirs and take nothing more from them. No enjoyment, no dreams, not one more thing.

Maybe she’d walk away with something she hadn’t had in years.

Peace.

My Rant


This story was compellingly erotic and was quite the page turner. The authors writing style was sensual and she drew out the emotional needs of each character.  The book was honestly not what I expected it to be at all, what I thought I was embracing on was a raunchy erotic romance, this book was not which took me by a complete surprise.  Now don’t get me wrong I enjoy a good raunchy romance that is completely in your face erotic but the emotional balance between this love triangle was developed tasteful and exploded into something wonderful. The characters complimented each other by giving in to their desires but you feel the romance between them was more of physiological need that physical. But when these characters lit up the scene you fall down the slope into a Smokey ride. Not only has this author proven she can write a steamy erotic romance, but she can do it without compromising a good story. 

My Recommendation 




I rated this book 3 1/2 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts. This story was compellingly erotic. 

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the author, editor, publisher, or Promo Host. This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

  2. Second comment. Apologies. The first one was before I saw the rafflecopter and about your review of this AWESOME looking book that I just bough, lol.

    My Favorite genre: Wow!! That used to be so easy with saying thriller/suspense/mystery. Now, I just adore Romance, Erotic Romance, Suspense Romance and still my mystery/thriller/suspense. OH! and supernatural/paranormal, lol. Not an easy question for me to answer. I Love many genres. All bringing their own fantastic elements to the stories and what mood I'm in or wish to be in.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity and good luck to all!! <3
