But instead of treating her like their little sister, Mark and Tony have a surprising proposition: a monogamous ménage à trois. The three of them—and no one else.

Read an Excerpt


Hailey stood in the line at Phoenix airport security flanked by her brother's two best friends, aka serious drool material. As if she hadn't been able to figure that out for herself, every woman in the vicinity and a few of the men reminded her. Even mothers busy with babies and toddlers managed to sneak in wistful glances at them.

Tony Adamo and Mark Allen. Too bad she had a crush on both of them—had had a crush on both of them since she'd learned that boys were good for something other than playing ball and tag. Too bad they thought of her as a little sister. Oh yeah, and there was that tiny, little detail about them being her brother's best friends.

Yes, she was vacationing with her brother and his wife and her brother's best friends. How pathetic was that? Her boyfriend hadn't wanted to go. And why was a thirty-two-year-old woman using the term "boyfriend," as if she were still in high school?

Nix that. She no longer had a boyfriend. After a year and a half, she'd finally broken it off with him two days ago. Well, technically a day and a half ago.

Which reminded her....

Surreptitiously, she swept the area with her gaze just to make certain Daniel hadn't followed her. No sign of him. Just a few families going on vacation and a lot of business people with their carry-ons in one hand and BlackBerries in the other. She pulled her cell phone from the back pocket of her jeans and checked for messages.

One from her brother saying he and Nikki had arrived in Hawaii and to "get her rear in gear." She automatically deleted the message and then the phone number in the log of incoming calls, leaving it empty. She checked her outgoing log to make certain it was empty then stopped herself.

Daniel was history. No more arguments over who called her or whom she called. No more fights over whom she lunched with. No more defending her meetings with clients. No more put-downs or subtle threats.

She should have been relieved. She wasn't. Daniel hadn't taken the breakup well.

Once again she scanned the crowd, more carefully this time.

"You lookin' for someone?" Mark asked, his voice so close to her ear that she startled and her heart skipped a beat.

Hailey slipped the phone back in her pocket as she shook her head. "No."

He rested his arm across her shoulders, and Tony ruffled her hair.

"Hey, sunshine, you're on vacation. What's got you so jumpy?" Tony asked, his dark eyes serious.

Hailey tried to clear her throat so her voice didn't sound so rough. It was too damned early in the morning to talk. "Nothing," she lied, but her next statement was the truth. "I didn't sleep well last night. I'm just tired."

Tony looked over her head at Mark and shrugged his shoulders. He obviously didn't believe her. His frown and the lines between his dark eyebrows told her as much. One of the drawbacks of knowing each other for so long.

Mark moved his hand to her neck, slipped it under her hair and began a slow massage with just enough pressure to relax her. She sighed, closed her eyes and let her head drop forward. Mark had the best hands—callused and strong from working with wood, but gentle too.

Hailey has been completely oblivious to the fact that both Mark and Tony have been in love with her for years. Everyone except her brother and herself have noticed that no matter how hard the two men try to hide their feelings from everyone, they just seemed to gravitate towards her. Hailey has always been close with her brother's best friends and thinks nothing about the fact that they pull her on their laps, give her neck rubs and are always tentative to her needs. 0_o? So when the two offer a chance to be with one of them, both of them or neither of them, it's safe to say she is thrown for loop. But when the two men that you are in love with are willing to share you, would you turn down the opportunity? Now I know what you're thinking but you would be wrong! Tony and Mark are not gay or bi. Okay so maybe you weren't thinking that, but that's what I was expecting when I started this. In fact there is a scene where Tony and Mark accidentally kiss and Tony flips out. They are two straight men who happen to not only be best friends but are in love with the same person and are willing to share her. Let's not forget Hailey's ex-boyfriend. Who was not only verbally abusive to her but physically abusive as well. She denies that she was ever part of domestic violence. So not only does the author approach a taboo subject of a ménage à trois in this book but she also touches base with a very serious problem that happens to more often than you'd think (One in four women has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime.) and like Hailey, the victim doesn't even realize that they are a victim. I thought the author did a fabulous job with this story. The characters had depth and even though the romance part takes off right from the beginning, it didn't seem forced. Especially after friends and family members were saying "finally!" when they found out about their arrangement. You get the sense that even though a ménage à trois wasn't exactly what everyone had in mind, they all knew that love was in the air (sorry couldn't help myself with that one). I liked the added bonus of suspense with the psychotic, possessive ex-boyfriend who is still trying to manipulate Hailey into coming back to him. I look forward to reading more work from this author.

Thanks to the publisher, Carina Press, and NetGalley for the chance to read this early! Samantha Ann King, debut erotic romance author, created a short story with great dialogue. Some of my favorites include -- “I can’t choose between you.” Hailey to Mark & Tony “We’re talking to her about three-ways and you’re worried about my language?” Mark to Tony “One of us or both of us. Or…neither.” Mark to Hailey This is a mfm ménage book, and it's very hot. I have no complaints about the sex scenes - some very wow impressive. The book is well written, and I couldn't put it down. This is an emotionally charged, scorching H-O-T read about a complex ménage relationship. Hailey Anderson, a grant writer, has been in lust with her overprotective brother’s two best friends, Tony Adamo and Mark Allen, for years. She can’t wait to join her brother in Hawaii – she is in desperate need of a vacation; after breaking up with her abusive boyfriend, Daniel. She thinks her vacation is going to suck, until Tony and Mark make a surprising proposition: a monogamous ménage à trios; just the 3 of them. The only problem is they are sharing a house with Jake, his wife, Nikki and her two siblings Landon and Meredith. – If Jack discovers their little proposition will kill them; he however is not the only one they need to worry about. Only note I have is that I felt as if Jake & Nikki’s story should have been a prelude to this. Maybe we will get their story in the future…also I would like to see one for Landon and Meredith.

I picked this up because of the 4 ½ star review from Romantic Times. I wasn't disappointed. Not only was the sex hot, but I was on the edge of my seat as the three lovers dealt with Hailey's homicidal ex. I like a strong story when I read erotic romance and this one delivered!

This book was a fast read! Over 600 pages but finished within 2 days. I really loved the unconventional love triangle. It was sexy and romantic and sweet. And the book actually had a good story to it with a crazy ex boyfriend, a gun shooting, and some family drama! Overall i give this book 5 stars because i was entertained for every moment of it.

I never read this author before, but I will definately read more of her. This book is well written with no noticable mistakes like lot of these books seem to have. I read an average of 250 books a year of all types and this one rates as one of the best.

WoW!!!! This story was Extremely Sexy!!!! Great story line and awesome characters. If only we all could have family and friends who were open and supportive of "unconventional" love. I would love to see how Hailey, Tony and Mark were doing further down the line in their relationship... :)

If you are searching for a full length erotic romance with an actual plot I would definitely recommend Sharing Hailey. Character development is good. Sex is graphic but tasteful. An all around good read.

I truely enjoyed this book from beginning. It has a great story of line of a women overcoming an abusive relationship and finding out that love is possible, even when somewhat unconventional. I also loved that, though she had the strength of mind and spirit to get out of the bad situation on her own, she didn't have to. She had friends and family that supported her through it all. All together a great read, an absolutly worth the time.

Absolutely loved the writing! Very emotional story that deeply touched me. I can't wait to read more from Samantha Ann King. I rarely write a review of anything but this story was incredible. I loved that it wasn't just about sex. She really told a captivating story with well thought out characters and plot. I highly recommend!

I swear this is the best book ever. I've never had a favorite book and now I think this is it. This is my second review of 'Sharing Hailey'. I fell in love with all of the characters and was sad that it had to end. I love this book!!! Can't get enough!

Loved this book, well written, sex scenes were hot, not dirty or disgusting like some books. So jealous of Hailey, you will not be disappointed, excellent read.

Sharing Hailey is one of the best developed erotic romances I have read. I was curious how this author would develop a believable menage romance, but she did it with great finesse. Love the character development (one of my pet peeves) and am looking forward to more from this author. Actually, the characters were so believable that I found myself thinking "Why can't I find one of these guys?" I'll have to read this one again and again waiting for the next book from S.A.King.

This is a good read the story is well told and well written enough psychological play and not just an action series gets you wondering about the logic of a menage a trois.

LOVED IT! OMG! Hot and steamy! Storyline was entertaining and a page turner. Haley, Tony and Mark had chemistry and passion but also a lovable and sweet relationship. Loved Mark and Tony's protective nature when trying to protect Haley from her abusive stalker ex.

I’m jealous of Hailey.  The guys were so sweet and their relationship with Hailey was just adorable.  The love scenes were totally hot, especially a kiss in particular that left me wanting more.  Hailey was very relatable, I felt for her in all aspects.  Her journey was a hard one, but very good.  The climax was dramatic, but quick (which I appreciate – things don’t need to be dragged out to still make an impact).   Not counting the ex-boyfriend part, this was honestly a fun book; the new relationship budding between Mark, Tony, and Hailey, and keeping it from her brother (or trying to).  Meredith’s role was also entertaining.  What it comes down to is that I really just adored all the characters.  I can’t wait to see more of them! Sharing Hailey is a page turner that will keep you coming back for more.  It’s fun, exciting, and hot.  Definitely give this one a read!
