With a name like hers, Indiana Jones knows she ought to be adventurous and daring, but when she’s tricked into taking a vacation on her own and discovers she’s staying at a swinging resort, she wants to spend the week in her room. But the place is run by two of the most tempting men she’s ever seen. She could have just what she wants and no one would ever know.

Marc finds it hard to see his partner Kyle in physical and mental anguish, but if the guy won’t talk about it, what can he do? Finding a third might be the answer, and he has just the woman in mind, unless she runs off before he can make her smile.

Crippled and depressed, Kyle can’t even kiss his partner and wonders why the guy puts up with him. If only he could let the past go and move on. Maybe, just maybe, an intriguing guest will show him the way.

A week in paradise with no expectations, no judgments and no rules. Would you be brave enough to let loose?

Indiana Jones (yes, that’s her name), also known as Indie, is visiting Orlando for the vacation of a lifetime. She’d expected to travel with her best friend, Lisa, but when she arrived at her hotel found out Lisa had tricked her. Lisa had set up Indie’s time at Heden, a clothes-optional, anything goes resort, to help her avoid the depression that would otherwise accompany Indie’s Christmas.

Heden is run by Marc and Kyle. They are lovers, but each is interested in finding a third to balance out their needs. While Marc likes to hit on every woman he sees, Kyle is much more selective since a mysterious accident that changed his life. Indie, however, attracts the attention of both men.

I liked all three characters. Indie wanted to cut loose, but was afraid to take the step. Kyle had been traumatized and was afraid to open up. Marc was in love with Kyle and is frustrated that Kyle either doesn’t or won’t return his affection. Each story is good in itself, but put together, it seemed to be a bit too much in the limited pages. Balancing emotion and sex between three people can be a difficult task. In this case, the sex is steamy and all three are a perfect physical fit. The emotion, however, is lacking.

We’re introduced to the relationship between Marc and Kyle, but I felt something (beyond a woman) was lacking between them. Marc’s head was turned immediately by Indie, and it almost seemed he ditched Kyle to chase after her. Meanwhile, Kyle had a hidden secret, keeping him from opening himself fully, that he would not share with Marc. It made me feel the two really didn’t belong together or that they weren’t very close because those are the types of things shared between lovers. Kyle felt comfortable sharing with Indie, however. Why open up to a virtual stranger but not your lover?

After being initially afraid of her risqué environment, Indie opened very quickly and expressed her desire to participate in a ménage with both Marc and Kyle. Hiding a secret herself, she finally opened up to them and explained her resentment of the Christmas holiday. Although things were resolved, it felt like perhaps they were resolved a little too easily.

When it comes to a love story, this one doesn’t quite get there, but if you’re looking for a hot sex story, this will absolutely hit the spot.
