In Sandusky six years into what outsiders believe is the perfect marriage without knowing that Anne and James Kinney still share great sex the only negative is his mother demanding an infant for the rest of the gang to play with. Now James¿ best friend from his junior high school days Alex Kennedy is coming back to the states after spending time in Singapore and elsewhere. Without a second ¿f¿ing¿ thought to his wife, James invites Alex to spend the summer with them. --- Anne has never met the infamous affluent Alex, but she expects not to like the world traveler. Instead to her shock and chagrin, she is attracted to her spouse¿s buddy and him to her. Adding to her confusion is that James seems to encourage them. Soon an acceptable triangle forms with the thought in the back of the heads of the threesome being that Alex would soon move on to his next venture so let¿s live for today. However, Anne finds herself further mixed up when she realizes she loves both her sex buddies. --- The three lovers come across as genuine especially when the two males use DIRTY language with every other word spoken between them and more so with the bewildered heroine. She knows that her entire universe for moments is the hardened penis of her respective sex partner until the supernova orgasm occurs. Erotica romance fans will appreciate this complex tale as Anne is more than TEMPTED by Alex while her marriage to James is not yet BROKEN, but no longer perfect. --- Harriet Klausner

Tempted? Not so much.

The cover definitely captured my attention. In addition, the 1st few chapters were also promising, though it really didn't compare to Megan Hart's previous books Broken and Dirty. I can understand Anne's attraction to her husband James. I can even see her attraction ...
The cover definitely captured my attention. In addition, the 1st few chapters were also promising, though it really didn't compare to Megan Hart's previous books Broken and Dirty. I can understand Anne's attraction to her husband James. I can even see her attraction to James' hot friend Alex. But having James allow a sexual relationship between his wife and best friend was simply hard to imagine. And the underlying homosexual feelings or cravings between the guys was just strange. It's either you're attracted to the same sex or not. What really annoyed me was that James couldn't decide if he was bi or straight. And the fact that he allowed Anne to sleep with Alex, but didn't allow them penetration? Or did he? Anyhow, the book was ok. I finished it, but it didn't really have closure for the characters.

    Not what I expected

    The story was enjoyable enough. The story was written in first person and I really missed the "other side" of the writing. You know when it tells you how the other person feels or what the other person was doing. You didn't get that in this story. I guess that would be great for some people but it was something I missed in this story. <BR/>The story was about a married woman that truly loved her husband but didn't love him in the all consuming, butterflies in your stomach way. When his friend Alex comes along there is something to Alex that instantly grabs her and when the group's friendly relationship takes a turn Anne is caught in the middle of what she is convinced is the two men's longing to be together with her as a go between. The story itself was a good enough read and even though in my book fantacies it did not end as I would have wanted it to I guess it ended the way a real life story of this magnatude would have ended.

    This book was good in the sense that it makes the reader think.

    This book was good in the sense that it makes the reader think. But while I thought the writing was good I didn't like the ending and I can't stop thinking about the book.  I wish it wasn't written in the first person so I knew what both Alex and James/Jamie were thinking.  
    ??????Possible spoilers??????Is James really bi or does he just love Alex?Was Anne a go between so that James and Alex could have sex without actually having it?Why couldn't they all talk it out and have a better ending and some closure?    
        End of possible spoilers.    While I prefer a feel good book with HEA the writing was good and like I said it makes the reader consider many things.
      I gave it a 4 for the wetting  but a 3 for how sad it made me.

    O.K. Book

    The book was o.k. I did not like the ending that much so it turned me off some.
