Raising the Stakes by Jess Dee

Play out the hand her way…or fold?

He need to think long and hard about the rules of this game, and it’s not poker rules he’s worried about. Raising the Stakes, Book 2 of the Three of a Kind series from multi-award winning, bestselling, contemporary erotic romance author Jess Dee is a passion filled ménage romance that will leave you breathless.

It's taken Desmond Reed four years to finally see what's been right in front of him all this time: his best friend, Megan Loxley. But he's waited too long. Megan’s fallen for his poker buddy, Alex Truman.

Des wants to grab hold of Megan and haul her as far away from Alex as he can get her. Only Alex isn’t letting Megan go for all the chips on the table. Des can play his hand and reveal his true feelings, but the wager is huge. He stands to lose his best friend…or win the biggest jackpot of his life.

Then Megan raises the stakes. She loves Alex, but she loves Des too. Rather than give one of them up, she’s betting on both men. Now Des has a choice: stick around and play by Megan’s rules, or forfeit his hand—the woman he loves—to another man.

This contemporary erotic romance contains a ménage, dating & relationships, gambling & poker, adult themes, and is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

After four years of unrequited love for her best friend, Megan has finally decided to move on. When Des, the man of her fantasies and her best friend, introduces her to poker buddy Alex, she falls hard. And Alex feels the same for her. It's only after this that Des realizes what he's done; lost the only woman he ever loved, and gave her away to his buddy. Meanwhile, life couldn't get any better between Alex and Megan, right? Well at least until, after a night of extremely satisfying and exhausting sex, Meg drifts off to sleep, replying to Alex's 'I love you' with her reply of 'I love you too, Desmond'. Can she convince Alex she loves him as well as Des? When Meg realizes she wants both of the men in her life in her bed as well, will they both agree? Or will she lose her best friend forever? Jess Dee has a talent for making you care about her characters. This trio is no exception. I laughed at some of the antics, cried at a few places, and cheered when these three finally made that first step to be together. Of course, they say the course of true love never runs smoothly, and it is certainly true in this case. I loved that the threesome wasn't a foregone conclusion, and that Megan had to fight hard for what she wanted from the guys. Megan is a realist. I like that she was determined to get on with life, after pining for Des for four long years. I loved seeing her make a new life with Alex, at least until she realizes what she really wants. Then her determination to have it all is just fantastic. Des and Alex are perfect for Meg. Alex is the romantic and spontaneous one, while Des is the brooding hero who gives up his dreams to see the woman he loves happy. They are both hunks of the first order, and I can see why Meg can't choose between them. What sane woman could? This has it all; romance, hot sex between two people, then more screaming hot action between three people. There are tears, drama, laughter, and most of all, there is love between these three people who grow to be so much more together than they are apart. I recommend this for all who love hot romantic episodes, and I must warn you to have the cold drinks handy. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews

I freaking absolutely loved Jess's Book Raising the Stakes. Who new playing poker with friends could lead to this. OMG the Love scenes were so damn hot I melted- literally, several times. I'm drooling right now just thinking about them. The emotions between Meg, Des and Alex are well, lets say I cried and rejoyced and cried some more and wanted to thump somebody with my cure-all cast iron frying pan. I love the emotions going on in Des's and especially Alex's head. I hate giving away spoilers so I canna say anything else except go buy it!!!!!!! And if you haven'tread the first book in this series Going All In, go buy it for goodness sake and treat yourself!!! I Love Jess Dee!! Zina

I like that the men in this polyamorous relationship don't just jump in with both feet. There is jealousy and pain, each man wanting Megan for himself. It seems more realistic to me than two men who regularly share women, which many other stories portray. I did think some of the dialogue, especially toward the end, was a little cheesy, but overall I think this was a great book.
