Release Date: 6th December
With New Year’s Eve and her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, best-selling author Calista Grant has a hard time envisioning actually doing something for herself. At the urging of her closest friends, she books herself a once in lifetime vacation, trading the chaos of Boston for the serene tranquility of the Caribbean. Once in paradise, she makes the decision to drop her guard and finally let loose.
Enter two bachelors, with demons of their own to vanquish. Zane Rhodes, a successful architect, is on a path of self-destruction after a tragic loss. In denial regarding his own issues, resort owner, Xavier Rivera, invites his best friend to spend the holiday with him in paradise. Once there, they both meet Calista and are immediately captivated.
Used to sharing everything, including women, they set out to seduce the innocent brunette and fulfill her deepest fantasies. Neither is prepared for what happens next, though, as the two Dominants find themselves not only battling each other, but their own demons as well. Will they be able to save their friendship before the reality of the three ends the fantasy forever?
Soft lips moved across the back of her neck, making her whimper. That spot was such a turn-on to her. As his mouth trailed along the line of her neck, her pulse beat wildly. His teeth grazed the throbbing pulse point in her neck before he sank them down into it. Another moan escaped her lips, but this time he swallowed the sounds of it as he turned her head, fusing his mouth to hers.
Xavier was a fantastic kisser, and if that particular skill was any indication of others he possessed, he’d have to be phenomenal in bed. Cali leaned further back against his chest, wrapping what part of her arms she could around his neck to keep herself upright. His hands snaked around her body, palming her breasts and kneading her aching flesh.
“A perfect fit,” he rasped, nipping her earlobe. She had no time to react before his hands traveled higher so he could slip his fingers beneath the thin spaghetti straps on her dress. Dropping her arms to her sides allowed Xavier to slide the material down her limbs. With her dress now resting just above her hips, Cali brought her hands back up to where they had been and closed her eyes.
He returned to kissing her leisurely, as if he had all the time in the world to strip her naked and fuck her. Just when she thought he would continue with this excruciatingly slow pace all night, he captured one of her exposed nipples between his teeth. Moaning against his lips, her eyes flew open to find Xavier still kissing her. How could that be? If his mouth was on hers then who was currently suckling on her nipple? The man was good, but not that good.
Tensing, she immediately pulled her mouth away, looking down her body to find a pair of arctic blue eyes staring directly up at her. It was the man she’d seen from her balcony. What the hell is he doing here?
Releasing her nipple from his mouth with a wet pop, he straightened, raising himself to full height. She began to feel surrounded and dwarfed by these two men. There was just so much male in the room. Her first instinct was to cover her breasts, which she quickly did, earning a scowl from the blond stranger.
“Calista, I’d like you to meet Zane. Z for short.”
Cali looked back and forth at both men, taking a few steps sideways to collect her thoughts. She had no idea what was going on, but the night took on an alarming note. Fighting back a small panic attack, she gauged the distance to the door.
Xavier stepped toward her, tipping her chin up with his long fingers. “Don’t go, belleza.” His eyes were completely mesmerizing, as was his voice. She felt her body’s reaction to him in every pulse of her clit.
“I-I don’t understand. I…” she stammered, her voice drifting off. The two of them acted as if they did this little routine together often. As if encroaching on the other man’s territory, however temporary, was the most natural thing in the world. She was aware there were men who liked to share women. Granted, she’d never met anyone like that, but she’d heard enough about them from friends like Emily.
Already, she could imagine her best friend’s response to this situation. If Emily even believed her to begin with. Cali was having a difficult time taking it all in.
“Have you ever been with two men at the same time?”
Cali’s head spun around as Zane spoke. His voice was as heavily accented as his counterpart, though he didn’t sound or look Spanish. Her eyes were drawn to his chest and she couldn't help but stare at the impressive expanse of muscle. To meet one perfect male was luck, but two was unbelievable. It was even more unbelievable that they both wanted her.
Unable to speak, she merely shook her head in response.
“Together we can bring you a great deal of pleasure, Calista.”
While he spoke, his hand reached out to gently stroke her arm. His touch was a direct contradiction to the heated intentions she could see in his gaze. She didn’t have a lot of experience in this area, but Cali could recognize desire when she saw it.
Remembering back to the night before, she recalled being drawn to Zane. From the moment she’d caught him staring at her, there had been a pull toward him. Her dreams last night had been filled with those visions. She’d even entertained fantasies about him all afternoon. That was until she had met Xavier.
Turning toward Xavier, she knew he could sense her confusion, but he seemed content to let her make up her own mind. He obviously didn’t want to pressure her into making a decision.
The sensation of Zane’s thumb brushing over her knuckles jolted her mind back to the lingering question. No, she’d never been with two men at the same time. Could she really do something like that now? When hoping to find someone to pass some time with, never did she imagine it would include two men.
The few sexual encounters Cali had had before could never be considered wanton. In fact, they were more instructional in nature. She would touch her partners where they wanted her to touch, and they would do the same to her in return. Both parties would find satisfaction and the man would then promise to call. Cali would walk away knowing that her phone would never ring, but it was okay. She had a feeling that tonight would indeed qualify as wanton and she would more than likely regret it for the rest of her life if she chose to leave.
“We will make you feel all the things you’ve ever read about or dreamed,” Zane said, bringing her hand to his lips and placing a kiss in her palm. “All you have to do is trust us. We won’t hurt you…” He paused and then chuckled. “Unless you beg us nicely to do so.”
Her eyes widened at the last part and she worried her bottom lip with her teeth. She couldn't believe she was even considering what was being offered. Zane continued.
“We’ll worship every inch of your gorgeous body and not a single freckle will be left untouched. By the time we’re finished, you will…”
He stopped, and Cali fought to make her tongue work. “I will what?”
Xavier chose that moment to step behind her until she was sandwiched once more between the two irresistible men. He then finished his friend’s sentence for him. “By the time we’re finished, you’ll know what it feels like to be fucked, utterly and completely.”
Sexy and somewhat short menage. There were some parts of the storyline that seemed a bit choppy and the ending left a lot of issues unresolved. This is the first book of the series, so I'm hoping that their story will continue. Overall it was an entertaining read, but there wasn't much more than sex between the characters - at least not for me.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
