    Fabulous Holiday Erotica!

    My Review:
    At 19,000 words, this is a fabulous little Christmas erotic read that you can gift to yourself. This is a seriously hot little book. It's Christmas Eve and Adam is over at Rob & Shayla's house. They live next door to each other, are best friends, and do everything together... the three of them, but lately Adam has been feeling lonely and depressed. He loves spending time with them, but going home to his empty house every night is not making him happy. He's bisexual and has been attracted to both of his friends for way too long, especially knowing that nothing can come from it. What he doesn't realize is that they are about to gift him with every fantasy that he has ever imagined about the three of them.

    Shayla & Rob are married. Since they got married, she has been able to sit back and observe Adam and Rob, especially the unguarded moments where they don't realize that they are being watched. She quickly discovers that Adam is in love with her husband Rob, and she's not so sure that his feeling aren't returned, despite the fact that Rob is fully heterosexual. She decides that maybe a little bit of experimentation may be in order.

    The best thing about this book: Adam. He's so vulnerable. He's looking for something more and so envious of the marriage between his two friends. It's especially hard for him because his feelings for both of them are so strong. He's tried to keep those feelings hidden because he doesn't want to jeopardize his friendship with either of these people. I love how shocked and unsure he is when the present becomes "unwrapped." This is a man that truly does not want anything to endanger his friendships no matter how much he wants to and you have to admire and love that kind of loyalty. Just a really yummy character!

    You can already see how hot this book is going to be right?!? OMG, these are three people acting out the first vestiges of fantasies that they have only dreamed about. Add to that, all the underlying feelings that no one has expressed and you are talking about some major sexual tension. It makes for a FABULOUSLY sensual erotic read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's truly the best of both worlds...a great little holiday story mixed with an incredibly hot erotic read. Snuggle up in front of the Christmas Tree and prepare to be heated up in more ways than one.

    Review from Worn Pages and Dusty Shelves

    Usually, I tend to avoid erotica like the Bubanic Plague, but this time, I made an exception and I'm really glad I did! I often forget erotica can have a story-line (silly me!) and The Gift of Shayla reinforces this. So much so, that as I read, I wanted to know more about the characters. What were they like in the past? How did Adam hide his feeling for so long? How did Rob meet Shayla? What happens afterward? Do all three work things out? The story is very sensual and explores a little bdsm (as well as m/m). The sex scene isn't just filled with mindless sex, but with dialogue that makes you almost feel sorry for the situation they've put themselves in. That is, until you keep reading- then you're really glad they did. I only have one problem, which really isn't a problem at all, and that is...I wish it were longer!

    Really good

    This story was really good, I wasn't sure I would like it but the sex scene was not dirty or vulgar. Adam was so in love with the two people he thought he could never have.
