What’s your wildest erotic wish?
For Piper, that’s easy. Two alpha males who ravish her and find her curves beyond luscious. She knows her type isn’t for every man—certainly not Guy and Joel, right? Guy’s tall, dark and sinfully virile. Joel’s blond and bronzed. They’re freaking sex gods, escorts her friend hired so Piper’s thirtieth birthday is unforgettable. Their carnal games awaken Piper’s sensuality, while her voluptuous figure and sweet vulnerability fuel both men’s animal hunger.
One evening of decadent pleasure isn’t enough. Piper aches to perform ménage acts with them for clients who like curvy women. A wicked idea, except for her family’s ties with law enforcement, the threat of exposure. Is her threesome worth the risk?
Hell yeah. By day, she’ll be good. At night, she’ll explore her men in every lusty way imaginable.
One night with Guy and Joel would never be enough. After Piper gets the birthday surprise of her life from her best friend, she vows that she will get out of the same old routine that she seems to be stuck in. Her night with Joel and Guy opened her eyes and heart in so many ways. Piper is no longer content to sit back and watch life pass her by. She is going to take it by the horns and hope that her heart is not broken.
As hot as this story is, it is also full of emotions and depth. I loved the characters and everything that they went through. Piper is a woman in love and she will take anything that she can have even if it is only friendship. Guy and Joel are working towards a goal and cannot let anything stop them even love. The sparks fly between the three right from the start and you can see the deeper connection but the men fight it with all their might afraid of getting hurt. Their lives were hard and full of pain and they are not ready to risk it all but Piper is not about to let them go without a fight of her own. She genuinely loves the men and just wants them to be happy even if it without her. I loved watching the men fall just as hard for Piper as she did for them. Watching their friendship build into so much more was a beautiful read. Their feelings are intense and each of the three must learn to deal with them and figure out just what they truly want in life.
Not only did I enjoy the main characters but the secondary characters made an impression as well. Alexa was a great friend to the guys and finding out her back story was a nice addition to this great story about finding and keeping love.
