Overview

Adolescent fantasies can grow into very adult realities.

Bandicoot Cove, Book 4

Sienna James has come to Bandicoot Cove to mourn the end of her eight-year relationship with Ben Cowley. The last person she expects to meet is the star of every one of her high school fantasies.

Joshua Lye is not only as appealing as he was in high school, he reveals she was the main feature in his adolescent wet dreams. As kids they never got it together. But they’re adults now, and there’s nothing keeping them apart.

When Ben arrives at the resort determined to win Sienna back, finding another man in her bed kind of throws a spanner in the works. But he isn’t deterred. Rather than admit defeat, he comes up with an alternative plan: Let Sienna sleep with both men—at the same time. Then she can make an informed decision as to which man she wants.

Sienna shouldn’t want to go through with this shockingly sexy plan, but she does. Desperately. Except after the sexual storm passes, she could have it all…or be left holding an empty heart.

Warning: Contains a suggestion beyond risqué, a solution beyond orgasmic, and two men who know how to play dirty. Really, really dirty.

    Pleasant read, unanswered questions

    Unanswered questions: Do we really choose a life partner based on whether a new lover or an old lover is more exciting in bed? Why is the one who's an IT whiz so thrilled to get a job as IT lead for a hotel? And, by the way, how does he keep track of when to be self-defeating and when to be self-ccnfident? Does the book's protagonist have a life? Does anyone think her eventual 3-way romp is sufficiently motivated to make sense to the reader?

    Truly Lovely, Amazing Story

    Have you even been torn between two lovers? Not knowing who would be right for you? This is exactly what Sienna James is feeling. After breaking up with her boyfriend of eight years she goes on holiday to visit the new resort her friend is managing, wanting to just take a breather. She didn't expect to see the one person who she lusted after in high school. Joshua is could not believe his luck to see the person his has wanted since high school right in front of him. Can these two make a high school fantasy come true, or will Josh just be the rebound guy?
    WOW, just simply wow. Jess Dee is an auto-buy for me; she tells her stories with such depth and compassion that you feel it in your heart and soul. As the story progressed, I really thought it was going to be a typical ménage.so not the case. When the ex-boyfriend comes back to win her back, I thought Sienna was for sure going to end up with a HEA with two men. But when Josh realizes he can't live that way, she has to choose. This is where my heart really broke, I just wanted to reach in and give them all a hug. Personally being in the same situation before I met my husband, I felt Jess really portrayed everyone's emotions very realistically. And the intimate scenes were a scorcher! So who does Sienna end up with? You will have to read the book for that one. Also, make sure you read the other 3 books in the series prior to this one so you can get the whole picture of this delightful crew :)

    Hot Read

    Sienna James attends the soft opening of a fabulous resort in hopes of slowing the hemorrhage of her breaking heart. She never expected to find a balm to her wounded soul in form of a high school crush, Josh Lye. Josh is everything Sienna needs him to be and more than she ever dreamed of back in high school. Now if she can convince him he's no "rebound guy" when her ex-fiancé shows up to take her home.

    Island Idyll is the third in the Bandicoot Cove series. Having read the other two stories I had certain expectations with an understanding that each book is written by a different terrifically talented writer. I knew that the writing style would be different than that of its predecessors and having read Jess Dee previously I was fine with that difference. As I said she's quite talented. However, since the previous books both ended with a HEA for all parties involved I assumed that Josh, Sienna and Ben would become a trio as well. Wrong!

    I won't tell you who Sienna ultimately chooses because quite frankly I wasn't sure who I wanted her to be with until the end of the story myself. I will say, if she had to choose then the choice she made really was the best for her and the guy. BTW, I'm not big on that "c" word when I read a book that contains a ménage but since that lifestyle truly is more fantasy than reality I can see where it's sometimes necessary. For the situation Sienna, Josh and Ben found themselves it honestly was necessary.

    Island Idyll is a pretty quick read with lots of hot action fairly early on. I liked the chemistry between the characters and the fact that both Josh and Ben only wanted what was best for Sienna even if it meant temporarily sharing. Ms. Dee's writing is very clear and filled with emotion. The reader understands the conflict going on within Sienna even as she agrees to the unconventional night. I liked how carefree and modest Josh was and at the same time Ben is so seriously sorry for his actions and obviously still very much in love with Sienna.

    You won't have to have read the other two books in this series to enjoy Book 3. But since you do meet some reoccurring characters, don't be surprised when you go looking for the other books to complete this terrific saga that arcs over one another. This has been a fun trip to the Aussie coast that will have you coming back to Bandicoot Cove at least one more time with Book 4. Fun in the sun takes on a whole new meaning on Bilby Island.
