Book Summary

Unexpected Desire
It’s been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn’t in the cards just yet …

Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin’s past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd’s best friend, Ben, ends up in their bed—and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name. As the passion they share transforms Erin, will it be enough to help her face the evil she thought she had left behind?

My Review
This book in 8 words of less …

To be honest I accidently stumbled upon this seris and read the third book first before realizing that it was a series. Yeah I can be a little special like that sometimes. But enough about me … let’s get to the goods shall we. In a brief word this book is beyond AMAZING! Every once in a while a book comes along that is so spellbinding that it moves you in mesmerizing surprises in all the best ways imaginable. The three main characters of this rhythmically hypnotic saga are all deliciously charismatic and comprehensively practical. They are skillfully woven into a roller coaster tale that will have your heart wrenching with tears one moment, fluttering with arousal the next and laughing with merriment at every victorious stride along the way. I was completely blown away by the brilliant representation of this emotionally stimulating and profoundly erotic tale of second changes and liberation. What can I say … I love this book! With ménage and some male-on-male action what’s not to love. Mee – Owh!

Meet The Characters

Erin Brown is a memorable heroine who takes no shit and knows what she desires whether on stage or in the bedroom. Even if some may view her appearance is a bit outlandish with her tattoos and dreadlocks that over time are traded in for long pink striped tresses I have to say that is what makes up some of her charisma and allure. Until disaster strikes and her genuinely free spirit is left traumatized and brokenhearted. The things she overcame just proved what a strong woman she was. Her tragedy broke my heart and left me in tears but at the same time I had to give her mad props to see the strength and determination that she possesses.

Todd Keegan starts out as a straight laced, clean cut, Toby Keith lovin’ cop who is so devastatingly attracted to Miss Wild Child Erin who just so happens to bring out his darker and kinkier side which naturally scares the shit out of him thus causing him to beat feet with his tail between his legs only to end up ten years later leaving Boston to return to Seattle after being shot, comatose and divorced. Only then to have fate step in and bring the once wild Erin back into his life where he so openly admits to embrace the kinks that caused him run and initially break her heart.

Ben Copeland is Todd’s sexy lifelong best friend and new business partner enters not only Erin’s life but her and Todd’s bedroom as well. He adds the whole new and improved feature to the vibrant dynamics of Erin and Todd’s relationship which in turn allows their friendship to develop into something deeper and more intimate will their feelings center around their love for Erin.

Final Thoughts
Ben, Erin, and Todd find themselves becoming a threesome to where scenes heat up and progress with the perfect combination of alpha male exploration and sensitivity based on friendship, longing, trust, respect, understanding, and of course, love with Erin at the heart and center, and although they might have difficulty clearly defining what they have, … they can’t deny what they have found in each other. While there are some delicious sexual facets of being in a ménage the emotional makeup of the trio’s relationship takes precedence as the prime focus of this brilliantly written story. With that being said I leave myself wondering where my Ben and Todd are because hello … my name is Erin too.
