Blurb: Who says it’s better to share your toys?
Beau McIntyre has had his eye on Pansy Patton for a while. But after their friends’ coming out party—where Pansy wears nothing but a sexy smile—Beau isn’t the only one jockeying for the best view of her pretty backside. Realizing it was a mistake to opt for a drawn-out seduction, Beau plans on staking his claim.
Billy Sorenson knows he’s out of his league with a submissive like Pansy, but it was lust at first sight. Now he’ll do whatever it takes to have her, even if he has to be penciled into her schedule for equal time.
A smoking-hot firefighter with ice-blue eyes, or a mysterious cop…what’s a girl to do? Pansy has the answer: refuse to choose and savor the consequences of both men pursuing her. Does she expect her lovers to play fair? Oh, no. She’s hoping they’ll play dirty. Real dirty…
Warning: Contains m/f/m and f/f/m scenes, paintball and other sexy ball games, flogging, and one wild orgy of pleasure.
Thoughts: The warning says it all: this romance is not for the faint of heart. The book is really graphic and explicit, so if that’s not your thing, this is not your book. With that being said, I really wanted to like this book….the blurb sounded really great, and I had high expectations. However, I did have a few issues with it.
My main problem with it was the lack of an actual storyline. The book was really nothing but gratuitous sex. While I do enjoy erotic novels with graphic sex scenes on occasion, I require at least a semblance of a storyline. There was a potential for a that here, but it just wasn’t executed throughout the book. And some ideals just didn’t mesh with me. For example, Beau has supposedly been wanting Pansy for months, yet he never acts on it until someone else shows an interest in her. And Pansy supposedly wanted Beau – has been waiting months for him to “notice” her – yet when he does show his interest in her, her attention has switched to include a man she has just met! For most people, when the person they have been longing after for months finally sits up and takes notice – they really don’t notice anyone else.
The end came up rather abruptly, and left me rather dissatisfied with the inner working of this threesome they now found themselves engaged in. For me, it felt rather like someone had taken out the steamiest, most erotic parts of the story and skipped out on the beginning and most of the end. I also wanted the characters to be a little more fully developed, and easier to become engaged with emotionally. I wasn’t eagerly awaiting the end of the book, but I just wanted there to be more to it.
