This book did not go in the expected direction. Thats not necessarily a bad thing, but i was overall left with regret thst purchased this. The storyline was created with deliberate attempts to fit in as much raunch/kink as possible. I dont mind a spicey hot read , but my problem was it the scenes didnt fit well. The entire sideline story with the female friend is a good example of wasted plot devices that go nowhere. Furthermore the way a certain someone returns from a leave of abscense was appaling, unnecesary, and seemed way out of character for that person so none of it fit. I liked how it worked out in the end, but i wish it was different getting there and that we saw how the dynamic shifted on the honeyoon.

I wasn't sure how I'd like this book but it was very entertaining! Fantasies explored through characters I could relate to and like. Menage is cosmopolitan sexy!

An easy plot to enter into and become quickly intrigued. Strong trio of characters who know how to express their sexual whims. Could have finished stronger methinks .

This is my favorite book of all time. I really enjoy all Emma Holly's books in this series so much more than her more recent books. I am also from philadelphia so that makes me partial. The characters have many layers and are well developed. Not to mention how sexy they are, and the very very hot love scenes. hot hot hot!!!!!!!!!!

Menage hooked me right from the start. It made me hot, but it also made me care about the characters. Great storytelling is not something all authors have, but Emma Holly has it in spades.

This book was one of the best erotic books that I have read. The complexity of the three people living in the townhouse and sharing one another in the first chapter made it all the more interesting from the very begining. It started off with a bang and ended with more of an explosion.The middle pieces of the book were deluctibly juicy as well, the sex-capade party that lead to an S&M session with a party of 5 could not have been discribed in a better combination of lyrical composition. In majority of Emma's books the level of arousal in the sex department was very orgasmic. Menage was no exception.

I am so happy I've found Emma Holly. What a great erotic author and what a great erotic book. 'Menage' is a wonderful tale with no cliches, no pages worth skipping, no falling asleep in the middle of a chapter. The three main characters are more human than most characters I've ever read. Kate has the same frailties and needs as her renters Joe and Sean, and their first shared experience pulls in the reader with humor, sadness, and the most erotic, romantic writing I've seen. This is the first time I've read about same sex experiences and not felt awkward. Emma Holly makes sex and love and everything in between fluid (both literally and figuratively). To understand what I mean, read the book, then tell a friend.

This is one of the best Black Lace books I have read so far. It's hot and the characters seem real to you and in the end you just want everything to work out for the three main characters. I haven't read any books that make threesome's so hot. If anyone know's of any more books like this one with m/m/f please e-mail me the titles. But I don't think there will be one like this, it was unique and sometimes you hope she ends up with Shawn and other times you hope she ends up with Joe. And the ending is perfect the only thing I didn't like was that it ended!

This is the first book by Emma Holly that I've read. I absolutely love her! And, I love this book! From the first page to the last, she takes you into the character's minds and bodies and opens up a whole new world of erotica-taboo sensual erotica at its best!!!! It also makes you wonder just how far love and trust can take you. If you have ever toyed with the idea of a threesome, or are curious about group sex, this book lets you explore that, safely, within your own mind. It is yummy. You won't be able to put this book down!!!

There is so much great stuff out there right now and while this is not the best I have read, it was pretty darn good. It definitely had its hot parts, but frankly I could have done without the stuff in between.
