Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This erotic suspense story follows Drayton, Mike and Julia as they navigate through a no-emotional strings attached affair. As Julia realizes that she is looking for a deeper commitment from the men she is involved with, secrets that Drayton has been keeping and Mike's shift in possessiveness threaten their relationship and as things begin to unravel, the three of them must decide where each of their futures lies. What a fantastic book! Though it has some of the trappings of a romance and does have a happy ending, I would definitely classify it more as an erotic suspense story than a romance. From the first page (starting off with a scorching sex scene) to the very end, it was a riveting story. Drayton is certainly the most mysterious of the group - a handsome, dominant man with a secret that he feels has nothing to do with the nature of the relationship the three have established. But this secret and Mike and Julia's response to it is the unraveling of everything as trust is broken on all sides. Mike is the caregiver for Julia, the man she relies on in non-sexual situations to make her feel better, but a man who increasingly shows her that he wants more from her than she thought she could give. And Julia is torn between two men, longtime friends, whose relationship with each other is becoming strained as the boundaries of their relationship change. She is a peacemaker, willing to do whatever it takes including using her body to bring them back together. There are scenes of high emotion, tension, drama, and sex through all of it, and even up to the last page there is a sense of not knowing what will come next. Overall I found this story to be highly entertaining, definitely steamy, and I continue to be impressed at the versatility in plot and execution that Claire Kent shows in her writing. 5 fabulous stars!
