Relationships change when you invite another person into your bedroom ...
Layla Palmer, Aidan McMurray and Sawyer Blake have left their home in Nebraska for the city that never sleeps, New York City.
Layla and Aidan have been in a relationship for four years and are engaged to be married. Aidan is a medical doctor, who accepted a position teaching medical students. Layla is a talent agent, who accepted a position at Hot Shots, an agency specializing in hiring models for clients in the erotica business. Layla and Aidan's relationship has been floundering, so he suggests bringing a man into their bed. Layla isn't exactly eager to engage in a threesome, but she agrees to it because she loves Aidan.
Sawyer Blake is a young sexy model, who comes to NYC looking to make it big. He is recruited by Layla to join Hot Shots agency, and finds himself attracted to the beautiful engaged woman.
Layla and Aidan invite Sawyer to their home and engage him in joining them in a threesome. Adding a third person into their already strained relationship opens up a Pandora's box of complications that will ultimately result in changing their lives.
Test Shot is an emotionally charged erotic romance story that delves into the complexity of relationships, and the complications and changes that arise in the relationship when a couple engages in a threesome. Author Cari Quinn weaves a gripping tale full of emotional angst and steamy sex that takes the reader on a wild roller coaster ride.
Written in the third person narrative, the reader is drawn into Layla, Aidan and Sawyer's riveting story where secrets, doubts, emotions, changing behaviors and conflicted feelings further complicate their already floundering relationship when they engage in a threesome with Sawyer. You can't help but get invested into these characters' lives, the emotional pull is so strong, and the passionate and heart wrenching but oh so steamy sex scenes in this story will keep you turning the pages as the threesome's relationship unfolds.
I loved the author's character development of Layla, Aidan and Sawyer. Layla and Aidan have a lackluster sexual relationship, fueled by Aidan's distance, secrets, and demons that haunt him; while Layla and Sawyer share a sizzling chemistry that is swoon worthy. The author does a wonderful job of delving into the complexity of the threesome's evolving relationship and the resulting life changes that come out of it.
With a realistic cast of characters; engaging dialogue and interactions; and a storyline that weaves the complexities of romantic relationships with that of steamy erotic and voyeuristic sex scenes, Test Shot is a gritty tale of emotions, tensions and longings that will resonate with you long after the last page has been read.
Test Shot is the first book in the Hot Shots series.

Layla's fiancé wanted to move so she packed up and went with him. She enjoys her new job at Hot Shots. They specialize in hiring talent for jobs of an erotic nature. Layla doesn't know what to think of her fiancé Aiden's behavior. He does not want to do anything of a sexual nature with her. So she has to satisfy herself with all of the toys he is always buying her. Then when she gets really turned on by the picture of a potential new employee her fiancé notices and tells her that he wants to bring another man into their bed. Layla is shocked. She loves Aiden and wants only him but she will do anything to keep him so she agrees. The thing is Aiden wants her to invite the man in the picture.
Sawyer knows that Layla has a fiancé so when he gets a call from Layla telling him what her and her fiancé want him to do he is shocked. But he can't resist the chance to be with her. But things don't add up with Aiden in his eyes. He can't stand the way that Aiden treats Layla and he wants her with him.
There is definitely more going on with Aiden then Layla can even imagine. What will she do when she finds out the truth? Can she fight the feelings that she has for Sawyer?
I thought that this was a great book. There were some very steamy parts. I like that even though Sawyer was unsure about this weird love triangle that he was willing to stand up for Layla when he felt she was being wronged. I think that when Layla finally found out the truth she handled the situation well. Most people would not be that understanding and I think that Cari wrote a great character in Layla. I highly recommend reading this book. This is the first book that I have read from this author and I was hooked right from the start. I will definitely be reading more from her.

This book was a quick hot read, and although I did find it a little frustrating, I did enjoy it. ~ Under the Covers
Layla has moved to New York with her fiancee Aidan, and has a new job in Hot Shots an agency that specialises in hiring models for work erotic work. But Layla is starting to have doubts about her move to New York, Aidan has become more distant and barely touches her, and when he sees her attraction to Sawyer Blake, one of the models she is trying to sign up to Hot Shots, he proposes something she never expected.
There is a lesson to be learnt from this book…if after a few years your fiancee suddenly keeps buying you a plastic penis rather then using his own and then asks to watch you bang another guy then GO GO GO! Maybe I am being unsympathetic but I found it a bit exasperating that Layla never really started to question the rather unconventional situation she had found herself in even though it was making her miserable. This was my main problem with this book, that and it was too predictable, I knew what was going to happen and it got a little boring.
But, it wasn’t all bad, the scenes where I wasn’t shouting at my kindle for Layla to get a clue were pretty hot, Cari Quinn definitely knows how to write a hot sex scene and Layla and Sawyer had plenty of chemistry. This book was a quick hot read, and although I did find it a little frustrating, I did enjoy it.

Cari pens "Test Shot" in a plot that screams steamy hot sex! With emotions galore throughout the book and her well developed characters, I couldn't put the book down until I was finished. This was a rare find...an erotic book that actually kept my interest in what was happening in the storyline and not just what was "happening". This book is a total must read!
