I was not expecting the bi aspect of the threesome but it added a layer of love and acceptance that was so beautiful! I loved this book and I highly recommend it!

So in all honestly, ménage romances are really not my thing but I'm a die-hard Laura Kaye fan and I'd read anything she writes. I've really been enjoying this series and Theirs to Take was a great addition even if it's a bit outside my wheelhouse. Most of the story takes place outside the Blasphemy club and instead involves the characters exploring their relationship in "the real world" and there's just one scene at the end where Hartley gets the club experience. One of the things that continues to impress me is how well Kaye weaves together the erotica side of the story with the regular lives of the characters. In terms of my enjoyment, I think that made a big difference because I came to fall in love with the characters for who they were and I could see how they'd formed a true relationship not just had some fun in the bedroom. I liked Hartley from the very beginning, she just has a really genuine way about her; she's a hard worker, smart, and she never gives up. She's never been in the BDSM lifestyle but she's very open-minded and knows about her friend's involvement in what turns out to be the same club as Jonathan and Cruz. Hartley was really honest with herself as she considered the possibility of being with two men and once she makes her decision she goes all in. I don't know if there's a usual "format" for ménage books but I'm glad that even though Hartley meets and clicks with Jonathan first she comes into the relationship on equal footing with both men. Hartley really becomes the connection that allows Jonathan and Cruz to finally admit their feelings for each other and realize what they truly wanted for the long term. Both Jonathan and Cruz were great heroes and each one brings something different to the relationship. Jonathan comes from a loving, hippie family, and he's open, charming, and friendly with everyone. On the other side, Cruz is a bit more reserved and intense and he struggles with keeping his bisexuality a secret from his very religious family. It's clear how much Jonathan and Cruz care for each other so it's a little silly that after all this time they've never crossed any sexual lines with each other, but it also allows them to explore that side for the first time along with Hartley. Her complete acceptance of both men really helps cement the bond between all three and though they know a relationship will be hard they don't want to be apart. Of course given the content, this read was off the charts on fire as these three explore each other. With Hartley's inexperience with ménage à trois and D/s relationships they start out a little slow at first but things quickly move along. Jonathan and Cruz might be dominants but they're incredibly caring and sweet with Hartley and she's open to everything their relationship could be. Another great read by Laura Kaye and she constantly impresses me with her writing and storytelling.

While the idea could have been really hot, the characters lacked emotion. I could never imagine any of them doing what they said. Neither Dom acted like one and the club was mild compared to other BDSM books on the market. 115 pages was not long enough to fully develop the plot or characters. Both were weak. Try Maya Banks or one of the other authors who have researched this scene!

Theirs to Take By: Laura Kaye ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K When one Prince Charming isn’t enough…Laura Kaye brings you two…and the results are explosive… Laura Kaye knocks it out of the park with the third installment in the Blasphemy series, this time we get two incredible men instead of one, and a feisty woman with an intense love of the water and a heart of gold. Hartley Farren inherited her father’s charter sailing business, and has continued where her father left off. Her love for the sea, and her amazing sailing abilities have earned her a robust clientele and an opportunity to participate in the renowned Sailing University. The only problem, a hurricane slammed through the Chesapeake, causing severe damage to Hartley’s catamaran, and jeopardizing her business for the foreseeable future. With no reputable company available to do the repairs she requires within the timeframe she needs, Hartley finds herself desperate for help. Enter Jonathan Allen, former naval officer and co-owner of A&R Builds and Restoration. Jonathan, and his best friend Cruz Ramos own and operate the sailboat repair and restoration business, and business is booming. So much so that they really don’t have the time to take on a repair as large as Hartley’s…but Jonathan just can’t tell her no. There’s just something about her that he can’t forget, and he’s hoping for more than just friendship. Together with Cruz, they set out to repair Hartley’s catamaran, and win her heart…because these two guys want a woman of their own. Someone that would appreciate everything they have to offer. As with every book by Laura Kaye that I have had the pleasure of reading, Theirs to Take is an incredible tale of discovery, love, and passion. The plot and storyline are unique, and very well crafted. The story is written with fabulous clarity, insight, and heart. I was completely taken in by the story, with it’s emphasis on family, partnership, and love. The character development was spot on, with each of them burrowing their way into my heart. Hartley was so amazing. Her love for her father, caring for her mother, and the strength to carry on and remain the same sweet, kind, loving woman. She was everything you want to be, and everything you want in a heroine. Jonathan and Cruz were heart-stopping. Each carrying their own brand of sex appeal, masculinity, and honor. Two amazing men, each as different as they are the same, with so much love to give. When the right woman comes along, every woman will be jealous of what they have to offer her. This book was amazing, and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Kaye brings us next time. Kristie K

Phew.... *Fans Face* Laura Kaye did it again with the next installment in the Blasphemy series. Holy hotness.... squared... or cubed if you include Hartley into the mix. I was a bit intimidated to be honest with ya when I picked up this one. It's been a while since I'd read a good threesome book but this one definitely didn't disappoint. I really enjoyed the other two books in the series but this one has been, by far, my favorite in the series. Hartley is the female lead that we all would wish for. She's independent, strong, and no where near the whiny female found in a lot of books these days. She's... normal. I feel like I could go to this town and walk up to her, start a conversation, and then beg her for the inside edition to the relationship between her and the sexy duo that is Jonathan and Cruz. The sex... woah.... Again... *fans face* I love this series because I love the idea of these guys being part owners in the club, Blasphemy. It's an underground world that is foreign for my country girl, Louisiana small-town self. I love to be immersed in this world. Overall, great read. If you've enjoyed the other two books in this series, you won't be disappointed with this one. You even get to see a few of the other characters. Overall, 5 Stars Cover: 3.5 Stars Characters: 5 Stars Plot: 4 Stars Climax: 4 Stars Ending: 5 Stars

All the previous Blasphemy books have been excellent, and this was no different. I have to admit it was my first M/M book and was a little unsure about it, but I really enjoyed it. All the characters were great, but I do think that it could have been a longer book and the characters personalities and how they worked together in the relationship could have been explored a lot more. Also I would have definitely like some more scenes at Blasphemy, and how they continued to introduce Harley to the lifestyle. Another awesome effort from Ms Kaye.

OMG, this book--it's capable of steaming up your reading glasses...that's not even a tiny bit of an exaggeration. Seriously. Theirs to Take is the latest offering in Kaye's erotic romance series, Blasphemy, featuring 12 Masters who all co-own a BDSM club named, of course, Blasphemy. This book has two of them, Cruz and Johnathan, best friends and coworkers and...something more? Maybe? Probably? I really liked the three main characters--Cruz, Jay, and Hartley--and felt they all worked well together. Things moved a bit on the fast side here, though, at least where Hartley is concerned (the other two have known each other for ages, so they get a pass on the falling in love in a novella issue) and I would have liked to have seen more relationship development along with all of the whoa-did-that-just-happen? other words, this would have been great as a full-length read. Still, this one fits right in with the series sexy, steamy, and romantic all at once--it's nice to see two more Masters find their HEAs, and many of the other series characters make appearances here as well, which was fun. Theirs to Take would probably work okay as a standalone, but honestly if you read and like an excerpt of it, you'll more than likely enjoy the whole do yourself a favor and grab this one but start at book one ( Hard to Serve ) to get the full experience. Rating: 4 stars / B+ I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

4 1/2 STARS! Kaye certainly knows how to meld an ordinary man into a scorchingly sexy hero! If you’ve been following along with this series, you will recognize Jonathan & Cruz from small appearances in previous books. They are sexy hot dominates who are 2 of the 12 Masters that opened up Baltimore’s hottest BDSM club Blasphemy. They are best friends and like to share their women. This is the first book in the series to kind of let us get to know the characters outside of the club predominantly, and it was fun! We got a delicious feel for them as the people they are outside of the dominate world before we saw the gently controlling side of them. The plot brought a couple of family issues to light that definitely could have been developed more to make it a more rounded story, and these two guys are not nearly as demanding as some of the other Doms we’ve encountered in the series, but they were fun and sweet and tender … and you have to love them! Overall a great read! Hartley Farren is in a panic when her catamaran is damaged due to a storm. That boat is her livelihood, and if she’s going to make the commitments she has promised, she needs to get it fixed ASAP! When luck puts her in the tracks of Jonathan Allen, she finds out he’s a boat restorer with his partner Cruz Ramos and sweet talks him into taking a look at the work she needs done. Jonathan is an easy going fun loving type of guy who enjoys bantering with a pretty lady, so he can’t resist giving Hartley a hand when he can see how worried she is about her boat. He convinces Cruz that they should help her .. and doesn’t deny that he’s majorly attracted to her! Cruz is the more serious of the two and worries about their own deadlines when Jay brings Hartley and her boat problems to his attention, but he can tell how much Jonathan wants to help her, and he finds it hard to resist him anything … so here they are … working all hours of the day and night on her boat with her by their side helping as much as possible. When she finds out they are dominates and like to share their women, she’s highly curious … and just might talk herself into going for what she wants … both of them!

: THEIRS TO TAKE is the third installment in Laura Kaye’s contemporary, adult BLASPHEMY erotic, BDSM romance series focusing on the men and women who work and play at the exclusive sex club Blasphemy. This is business woman Hartley Farren, and businessmen/Doms Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos. THEIRS TO TAKE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from previous story lines is revealed where necessary. NOTE: THEIRS TO TAKE contains mature adult scenes with graphic language and M/F/M, MM and M/M/F sexual situations. Told from three third person perspectives (Hartley, Jonathan and Cruz) THEIRS TO TAKE follows the building relationship between business woman Hartley Farren, and ship builders/repairers/ Doms Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos. Following a hurricane that damaged a number of boats in Baltimore’s Lighthouse Point marina in Chesapeake Harbor, Hartley Farren goes in search of someone to repair the damage to her boat. As a charter boat operator and teacher of sailing courses Hartley’s livelihood is threatened when repairs to her catamaran may take weeks to happen. Enter Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos, owners of A & R Builds and Restoration, and the men with whom our heroine will fall in love. What ensues is the building relationship between Hartley, Jonathan and Cruz; Hartley’s introduction to the BDSM lifestyle; and the potential fall-out when Cruz comes out to his family back home. THEIR TO TAKE is an erotic, sexually charged story of ménage. Jonathan and Cruz have been searching for the one woman that will submit to their dominance-one woman willing to accept two men equally and together. Unbeknownst to both men Cruz and Jonathan’s attraction to one another is buried beneath a friendship that goes beyond business and fun- a friendship that turns into something more. Their attraction to Hartley is immediate but Cruz is reluctant to follow his heart fearing rejection by the two people he has quickly grown to love. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic, and intense-the BDSM premise is limited. THEIRS TO TAKE is a quick read; sexy, seductive and emotional story line. The premise is suggestive, intelligent and entertaining: the characters are sassy and colorful; the romance is passionate, intoxicating and intense.

This book is part of the Blasphemy series by Laura Kaye, involving Masters Jonathan and Cruz.  Best friends that gave been through the Navy together and now are partners in their business together.  They meet Hartley following a hurricane that caused damage to the boat that is her livelihood.  There is an immediate attraction, for both the men and Hartley. This book is full of emotional turmoil and personal confusion, feelings, and love.  They each have questions that they have to answer about themselves before they can move on with their relationship.  Their emotions bring out the feelings of the reader, and had me glued from the first page.  I've enjoyed each book in the series, but this one seems to focus more on the relationship, and less on the BDSM factor (Its there, don't get me wrong, but its just not the focus). Hartley is such a strong woman, but feels things so intensely!  She has a positive outlook, doesn't stop until she gets things done.  Jonathan is much the same way, just seems to be biding his time until things work out how he wants them too.  Cruz, on  the other hand, has a darker outlook on life, possibly because of his religious upbringing.  Together, they make this book AMAZING!

Of the Blasphemy series, this book is the one I was anticipating the most. Master Cruz and Master Jonathan had captured my attention every time they made their way to the pages of the previous books so I was so excited to find out they were getting a book together and it did not disappoint at all. It is definitely the sexiest, and hottest, of the series so far. What I appreciate is, though it’s written in third person, you still feel as though you’re in each of their heads and you get their inner thoughts. The acceptance between Jonathan, Cruz and Hartley is refreshing, intense and heartwarming. I'm so happy with this book and now I cannot wait for the next!

Wowza! This book is holy hotness, Batman! Off the charts steamy. I was so glad to see Jonathan and Cruz would get their story after getting glimpses of them throughout the other books. Hartley is immediately likable and I really liked the fact that Cruz and Jonathan meet her outside the club. Here’s my gripe: I wanted more! Laura Kaye does angst really well and there wasn’t a lot of it in this book. Yes, it’s an erotica, but I also want the romance aspect of it. The give and take; ups and downs; the moment that (even though you know there’s a HEA) you get that little tug in the middle of your heart when the character’s heart breaks. Some people may not want that. Some people may love the fact that these characters meet, decide they like each other and want to give it a shot, and it all works out. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that. But as a fan of Laura Kaye’s, I’m always going to want more. All that said, I still really enjoyed their story. This is a great addition to the Blasphemy series!

Laura can write a short story like no one can. How she can develop characters, make you feel such emotion and add in erotic scenes is beyond me. You won't be sorry with this threesome. I loved this book!

Yaaaaassssssss! This book was SO HOT. I've said it before, but BDSM is not my go-to, at all. But I love Laura Kaye, and she has made me love this series. The Blasphemy club, and it's masters, are simply irresistible! Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos served in the Navy together. They're best friends, business partners in their boat building and restoration business, and they are both Masters, and co-owners, of the Blasphemy club. However, they both prefer to scene exclusively together, with a single submissive. Their proclivities are well known at the club, though no one knows if there's anything going on between the 2 of them as well, or if they are all about their shared women. They have just moved into a new work space, and they are working to make friends around their new marina. That's how they meet Hartley. Hartley Farren runs a charter business on her catamaran. But, after a hurricane comes through the bay, and another boat crashes into hers in the marina, she needs help, and fast. She needs someone who can assess the damage, and guarantee to complete the work in 3 weeks, or her business is most likely done for. Hartley's dad owned the charter business before his death, and it means more to her than anything. Also, much of her income now goes to providing care for her grandmother with Alzheimer's, so she can't lose the business. She is basically alone in the world and needs all the help she can get. She meets Jonathan at the marina office, and he offers to take a look at the boat. He's into her, and wants to help her, so he and Cruz agree to do the work for her. Jonathan and Cruz do the work for Hartley, and both of them fall for her as they are getting to know her. She is similarly taken with them, but has no idea about their lifestyle, or that being with both of them is even a real option. They have a slow-ish burn, flirting friendship that turns into more, and their chemistry was awesome. I loved how they handled the reveal of their lifestyle and Hartley's acceptance of them, and her excitement in trying new things. I really loved how functional their triad was, and how they each seemed to need each other in different ways. It made them all really feel necessary, and I loved that. They all had personal issues to overcome in order to be confident in being together, and I loved watching that all play out. They each had their own insecurities when it came to themselves, and their part in the triad, and I liked how they worked together to get through their problems. It was quite an adult relationship, with emotional maturity, and honesty, and that was beyond refreshing. As always in a series of standalone novels, it's fun to see the characters from prior books, and to catch up with where they are now. I've really enjoyed this series so much, and I love how everyone fits in together. There are still several books to come in this series and I'm very much looking forward to every single one. This series is a major hit for me, and I highly recommend it.

To date, I have read every story in this Wickedly Hot Series, and by far this is my ABSOLUTE favorite. We get Hartley a young woman who has lost so much in her life. We get two sexy, hot alpha, ex-military alpha male friends. Add them all together, and you get HOTNESS galore. They take us on one heck of a joy ride and sail away leaving us wanting so much more. I loved it!

Hartley Farren’s father died three years ago and left her his charter business, it’s her whole life. When a hurricane hits Baltimore, her precious catamaran is badly damaged. She has to get it repaired as soon as possible, and at the marina, she meets Jonathan Allen who, with his partner Cruz Ramos, owns A&R Builds and Restoration, and they will repair her boat quickly. And those two guys are so good-looking… Jonathan is attracted to Hartley, so is Cruz, but Cruz has been attracted to Jonathan for years and never said a word because he doesn’t want to jeopardise their long friendship, and surely Jonathan wouldn’t feel the same way? Jonathan and Cruz are both Masters at Blasphemy, the BDSM club, they have shared women, but Hartley seems special, but would she accept both of them? Obviously, THEIRS TO TAKE being an erotic romance, it would be hot, but wow! What I had not expected however was the very sweet romance between Jonathan, Cruz and Hartley. And they were Doms, but so caring and nice; I’m not usually crazy about the whole Dom thing, but those two were really special. And there’s the sex, but the love between the three of them was fabulous and felt very real. I also love the “boating” atmosphere, the visuals were amazing. Cruz had a heartbreaking backstory, and I hope we get to know a bit more in the future. Cruz was hot but Jonathan, oh my! I almost melted in a puddle just reading about him! THEIRS TO TAKE is short, super sexy, and very sweet! Another excellent read by Laura Kaye who never ceases to surprise me! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

4.5 Stars Hartley Farren is emotionally devastated when her catamaran is damaged following a hurricane. She’d done all she could to batten it all down, but another boat broke free of its moorings and crashed into the hull. The extensive damage is going to be expensive and time-consuming to repair, and insurance won’t pay for her lost charters. Jonathan Allen meets Hartley at the harbor master’s office. He sees her frustration over the delays in even getting an estimate on the repair, so he volunteers to take a look. Jonathan and his long-time friend, Cruz Ramos, own a repair and restoration business that rather new in the area. They are also Master Dominants at the BDSM club, Blasphemy, and they have a kink for sharing their women. Cruz knows the look he’ll see on Jonathan’s face when he’s called for an impromptu inspection of Hartley’s boat. Jonathan always did love to rescue a lady–and Cruz fair aches to have that look of interest directed at himself…even if he can’t voice that desire to his best friend. Coming out as bi would cause his parents to shun him, and might make Jonathan pull away too. If the only way Cruz can be intimate with Jonathan is through Hartley, well, he’d take that option anytime, anyplace. In order to make Hartley’s schedule deadline Jonathan and Cruz take on the job immediately, and pour in extra hours on the repair. Hartley’s got nothing else to do, and she’s attracted to both men–and thoroughly grateful for their willingness to help her–so she spends long hours in the cramped confines of the boat sweating out the work. And, teasing them, and being teased in return. Through a mutual friend Hartley learns about Jonathan and Cruz’s sexual kink, and she’s not averse. In fact, once they make their desire to take her between them known, she’s down for it. They don’t let fun get in the way of work, however there’s a christening of the repaired boat that might melt the touched up paint… O.O The story is told from alternating points of view, with all three sharing the page. Its an erotic read, but a quick one; I wished to have a little more time with all the characters, and not just between the sheets, though that was some fun sexytimes. This is a MMF read, so expect Jonathan and Cruz to have some close encounters of the male kind with Hartley’s full consent and avid interest. It all goes pretty quickly, and a little more hesitation or scenes that involved Cruz’s struggle would have nicely rounded things out. We do get a little bit of Blasphemy here, and a set-up for another erotic romance–a tie-in to anther author’s (Jennifer Probst’s Steele Brothers) series, if that floats your catamaran. For me, I liked it bunches, and if my only complaint is “I Want More!” well, that’s hardly a knock. Definitely a book that can be enjoyed one-handed.
