I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they don’t need to know anything, but that they are not alone in my heart.
They have accepted the situation. Stewart, because his life is too busy for the sort of obligations that are required in a relationship. Paul, because he loves me too much to tell me no. And because my sexual appetite is such that one man has trouble keeping up.
So we exist, two parallel relationships, each running their own course, with no need for intersection or conflict. It works for us, for them, and for me. I don’t expect it to be a long-term situation. I know there is an expiration date on the easy perfection of our lives.
I should have paid more attention, should have looked around and noticed the woman who watched it all. She sat in the background and waited, tried to figure me out. Saw my two relationships, the love between us, and the moment that it all fell apart.
She hates me.
I don’t even know she exists.
She loves them. I love them.
And they love me.
EVERYTHING else hangs in the balance.
The trick to writing good erotica is that there is more to it than just sex. Don’t get me wrong! Obviously, sex is a HUGE part of it, but there needs to be something extra in order to keep my interest. Alessandra has definitely proven to me that she is something special.
What I liked most about this story is that the sex was original, and that’s a real task when there is a sex scene in just about every chapter. In an erotic book there is bound to be a ton of it, so it’s good to keep it fresh. Alessandra has a variety of scenes, positions and adjectives. I was never bored! HOT!! Both Stewart and Paul have such raw appeal of a completely opposite nature, adding a nice diversity to the heat. Stewart is take charge and aggressive, taking what he wants, when and where he wants. Paul, on the other hand, will do whatever Madison asks of him.
What I wanted more of was dialogue. There is a lot of story telling, but I never really sympathized with the characters listening to just inner voices. I wanted to see how they connected or clashed with each other. And there is plenty of “clashing”, if you know what I mean. *wink wink* Madison is likeable, even though she is essentially defending her actions. Two men, and they know about each other? How can that be fair?! Oh, but it seems to work! Madison is the main protagonist, but we are given brief glimpses into the other characters as well; just enough to pique our curiosity and imagination.
There is a certain creep factor, since you don’t really know who this other woman is, sneaking around in the periphery of the story. I really enjoyed watching it all unfold, constantly guessing what the outcome would be.
Consider it recommended!
