This is a very hot ménage romance about three sexy brothers and their woman. When the oldest brother Adam finds Holly unconscious in the snow and carries her inside his house, he instantly feels attracted to her, very attracted. It’s every woman’s dream to have a man, just one man, feel that strongly for her. But this lucky lady does not only arouse the sexual feelings of this one man, but also those of his two equally hot brothers, Ryan and Ethan. Three men are already lusting after her while she’s still unconscious and the beauty is that they are happy that the other men feel that way. No jealousy! Because the three brothers want to share a woman as their wife, just like their mother and three fathers had lived together.
These brothers are really great guys. Maya Banks managed to give them all three their own unique characteristics, although I think that Ethan remains a bit colorless. He’s the kindest and most empathic person in the world, which makes him fade a little bit into the background besides his more dominant and controlling older brother Adam and the traumatized, troubled and sensitive Ryan, the youngest of the three. Ryan is adorable and plays an active role in the story. He’s the one that needed a woman like Holly the most, she makes him happy again and helps him deal with his nightmares, which he had since his return from Iraq. In the action part of the story (where they all have to deal with the threat of Holly’s ex-husband) Ryan’s the one taking a bullet which makes Holly realize that she can’t live without him and that she loves the brothers.
The sex scenes are very hot and graphic, the ménage scenes as well as the one on one scenes, which are sometimes really sweet. But I didn’t find it very realistic that Holly knew how to do all the things she did to satisfy more than one man at a time, while she was still a virgin. With her lack of experience some things just were hard to believe she could do without even wincing or gagging for example. But besides that, the feelings and actions of the characters were very well written about, which filled my heart with sympathy, love and tenderness for these four sexy people. So, I really enjoyed reading Colters’ Woman which made me rate it with 4,5 stars.
Maya Banks wrote an epilogue to Colters' Woman, called 'Colters' Wife', which can be downloaded for free from her website. Look here >>> It's fun, as an addition to this novel, to read what happens with Holly and her three husbands after their reunion...
Back Blurb: Adam, Ethan and Ryan aren’t looking for women. They’re looking for a woman. One woman to share their lives and their beds. They don’t want a casual romp in the hay, they want the woman who will complete them—and they’re losing hope of finding her.
That is until Adam finds Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. He knows she’s different the minute he holds her in his arms. But before Adam gets his hopes up, he knows he has to gauge his brothers’ reactions. Soon it’s evident that she’s the one.
There are a few problems, however—convincing her she belongs with them and keeping her safe from the man who wants her dead.
