Menage in Paradise

by Anya Summers

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  Erotic Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Ian has wanted Olivia from the moment they first met. They shared a torrid one-night-stand in Scotland a year prior and never spoke of it again. Now they are business partners, and Ian has plans to woo Olivia back into his bed permanently.

Eric Thomas is a drummer from the superstar rock band, The Harbingers. When he meets Olivia, he knows there’s something different about her. He wants her – and not just for the night.

But when the two Doms cause a stir with their antics on Pleasure Island as they each attempt to win Olivia, they will be forced to contemplate another means of attaining their prize. Can they convince Olivia to experience the fantasy of a ménage with them? And will what happens on Pleasure Island stay that way?

Publisher’s Note: While this steamy ménage is part of the bestselling Pleasure Island series, it can be read and enjoyed on its own.

Excerpt Three:

What the hell had he just witnessed?

Ian’s stomach roiled as Olivia took his arm and helped him off the bloody ship. There was no way he could ride that hell beast back to Nassau when they were finished with their performance engagement.

No effin’ way. It would bloody kill him. Or at least, he’d wish he was dead. Not only was the Dramamine he’d taken ineffective, but Ian believed it had added to his seasickness. Hell wasn’t cold or hot, but the seesaw rolling of the ocean and any ship that thought it could sail over its incessant waves.  

Damn.

“What was that all about?” Ian asked, enjoying the feel of Olivia’s elegant hand as it gripped his arm. Concern creased her brow while she steered him off the boat. If he weren’t feeling so ill from the crossing, he’d erase her expression and replace it with something explicitly more carnal. Olivia had fussed over him below decks until he’d sent her away. He was a freaking Dom and rendered inert by the sea, completely bumbling his intentions to seduce Olivia back into his bed.

“That was Eric, from The Harbingers. We met him at Declan and Zoey’s wedding in Scotland. Remember?” she murmured and shot him an innocuous glance.

“In all honesty, not really. There were quite a few people there that weekend.” And when Ian thought of that wedding, recalled the events, there was only one image that came to mind: Olivia, naked and writhing beneath him in the wee hours after the wedding. They’d both had more to drink that night than had been wise.

They’d ended up having drunken hot sex in his room. Mind-blowing, ‘he could barely remember his name and wanted to have it again and again’ sex. Olivia had been conspicuously absent from his bed the following morning, leaving his room sometime while he’d slept off their amazing sex and booze.  

It was a night Ian had been hard pressed to forget.

In nearly a year since what he considered an event horizon, neither of them had discussed it, nor had the good sense to do it again. More’s the pity.

 

I have to admit that I don’t read menage anymore.  I got burned years ago when I read a book with a menage that didn’t end well, at least in my mind.  The third was only in the book so that he could get his own story next and that’s NOT what the blurb said.  Nor was there any warming that the third would end up leaving.  The author led you to believe that it was an HEA for all three of them.  After that, I stop reading them.  I felt lied to, deceived and above all, pissed off because I actually liked characters.  So yes, I stopped reading them.  So what did I do?  Signed up to read a menage with BDSM.  I know, right?  What the heck was I thinking?

I wasn’t thinking and I’m so glad that I did.  This is one hot little menage that completely makes sense.  Why?  Because Olivia gets alone time with Ian and Eric first.  Then the menage comes into play.  And damn, that’s even hotter.  In fact, I’d have to say that this is the hottest book that I’ve ever read.  Bar none.  But at the same time, it was tender, sweet and loving.  Ian and Eric loved Olivia equally but neither one of them thought to share her?

What makes the menage so good in the book is how Ian and Eric are both Doms but are different in their style and mannerisms.  Plus, how they deal with Olivia as an individual is refreshing.  Different but both want the same thing…Olivia.  And they work it out.  Okay, so Jared has to step in but still.  I also loved that Olivia isn’t your typical sub either.  She’s mouthy, feisty and defiant but lovable.  Still dealing with abuse issues she doesn’t back down but in the end, she wants what she wants.

Overall, I just loved this book.  Ms. Summers has restored my faith in the menage sub-genre.  Her writing just flows from scene to scene.  Olivia, Ian, and Eric are well fleshed out characters and the sex is beyond hot.  But underneath all of that is a love story.  One that is sweet, emotional, and very satisfying.  Bravo!  Can’t wait to read another one from Ms. Summers.
