How do I begin this review? Wow. This book was well written, very sexy, and had so many elements of truth to it. Be With Me by Maya Banks was only my second novel by this author, with my first being Sweet Surrender. I liked Be With Me so much more than the first book of hers I read. Maybe it was the three hot men, yes I said three! Maybe it was the spunky yet sensitive female protagonist that kept me engrossed. I think it was a combination of everything, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my journey.<BR/><BR/>Hutch Bishop, Cam Douglas, and Sawyer Pritchard were young boys when they met and became like brothers in the foster care system under the watchful eye of their foster mother Birdie. She cared for them, taught them to be respectful young men, as well as teaching them to protect what is theirs. When their childhood crush Regina Fallon grows up to be a police officer, the three of them support her, even though they worry that she might get hurt. <BR/><BR/>Regina loves all three men, and yet she ran away as fast as she could after one night when everything changed. One night of unbelievable passion, the best night of her life, and Regina leaves in a hurry. Worried that she may have ruined everything with the men she loves the most. <BR/><BR/>Hutch, Cam and Sawyer have let Reggie run, deciding to give her space, letting her feel in control until one night they get a frantic call from Birdie saying Reggie has been attacked. All three of them rush to Reggie¿s side, vowing to take care of her and never let her go. Now all they have to do is convince Reggie that they can protect her, share her and all love her equally. Reggie is so worried about losing them that she¿s too scared to give this relationship a chance. She has to deal with an overbearing father, a deranged attacker and an obligation to her career¿ how can she possibly handle loving three men? <BR/><BR/>I loved this story. I know that a m/m/m/f ménage sounds unbelievable, and it probably is, but Maya Banks did a great job making this story seem realistic. She dealt with jealousies and possessiveness that most authors sweep under the rug. This book wasn¿t always harmony and happiness. There were times of anger and hurt feelings, but there was also communication and compromise, much like any true relationship needs to survive. Be With Me was touching and sweet, but it was also a really good mystery with a great plot, as well as a very steamy romance. To be honest, I was surprised that the sex didn¿t start much earlier in the book. I was probably more than halfway through before the really hot stuff started. This is an attention grabbing Romantica book, and a great introduction to ménage books if you haven¿t read one before. I highly recommend it.

So here I am writing another review. Again not gonna drag this all out. It's a scorcher. That's the best way to say it. I'm not giving the characters or story away, but if you like erotica with multiple players you will like this book. All my girlfriends did. I still don't know where my copy is or who has it. I want it back. NOW!

Police officer Regina Fallon is the daughter of an affluent politician, who cared more about his political career than his daughter. At home she was all alone growing up but outside Regina became friends with three orphaned street urchins (Hutch, Cam and Sawyer) taken in by kind caring Birdie who showered them with love an emotion she never received at home. The trio and their ¿mom¿ gave her companionship until the night she had sex with each of the boys. Embarrassed she fled.------------- However, in the present Regina misses her buddies as the loneliness is overwhelming. Worse a psychopath stalks her with the intent to kill her and her loved ones. When Hutch, Cam and Sawyer learn from Birdie she was hurt on the job, they arrive to protect her not understanding that they are targets of a deranged killer since she obviously loves all three of them and Birdie. They reject her pleas for them to leave instead they offer her their love (figuratively and literally). ---------------- BE WITH ME is a fascinating erotic romantic suspense that though well written with strong characters is not for everyone. Regina and the three men in her life are definitely in her life as ménage a quatre makes for a different type of shared passion. The stalker subplot adds tension, but is more of a matchmaking scheme that brings back the former juvenile delinquents into the life of the woman they adore, cherish and love.------------ Harriet Klausner

I feel that I have to be blunt here because there is no other way to be. But When you talk about a woman with three men I was expecting page after page of sex sex sex. However, this was more of a love story and how Regina overcomes her uncomfortableness at being with the three men in the bedroom as well as everyday life. She has grown up with all three men and truly loves them all. But she is terrified that it will come down to her having to chose one and she refuses to do that. The guys are confident they can make her happy and not be jealous of each other but she is not convinced. And in the meantime there is a crazy person out there trying to kill her and the people she loves. This is truly a great read. There are some steamy love scenes that are great but for the most part this was a wonderful love story involving three men and a woman.

What I liked about this Novel....
Ms. Banks did a wonderful job with this well written novel. "Be With Me" was quite a interesting read of not only a steamy read of one girl and three guys but it had a stalker in its storyline too. This was definitely one of this authors entertaining books that will keep your attention turning the pages. The author is a fantastic as she gives you romance, erotic, intrigue, murder and a downright suspenseful read. The four main characters were well developed, well portrayed, likable, and this was simply interesting to read giving the reader a sweet hot and sexy read. Be ready for some twist and turns that will keep you reading not wanting to put it down as you will be caught up and captivated until the end.

Another great story from Maya Banks! I love reading her so when I'm skimming the shelves at Walmart and I see a Maya Banks story I haven't read yet I had to get. From page one I was hooked. I couldn't put the story down once I started it.
Regina Fallon is a successful police officer who works hard to achieve her position. She has three best friends; Cam, Sawyer, and Hutch who after a steamy night she ran away from. After responding to a call for help she finds herself injured and in the hospital. When she wakes up she finds the men waiting on her. She now has a decision to make; stay or run?
Cam, Sawyer, and Hutch each have their own dark secrets but one thing they all have in common is their love for Reggie. They are determined to bring her home for good this time. They know she loves them but is conflicted at loving three men. Can they keep her with them?
Be With Me is an action packed story that keeps you reading from page one. I loved the emotion involved in the first half of the story, it was purely about them finding each other again. The sex scenes were steamy to say the least. I also loved Reggie's defiant attitude. Be With Me is definitely worth reading!

Great book from Maya Banks, as usual! I was skeptical from the description, but ended up loving this book. It pushes the boundaries of traditional relationships without being too off kilter. Perfect blend of passion, lust, emotion and suspense!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
