The Back Blurb:
Bianca's on the search to find the perfect gift for her boyfriend Ty this Christmas. But then she discovers a hidden stash of gay male porn under his side of the bed. Stunned, and scared, she needs to find out if Ty's more interested in men than in her.
She arranges an illicit night for Ty with her handsome gay co-worker Brendan.
To her astonishment and delight, the night turns into a ménage-à-trois, and all three lovers end up benefiting from this special gift.

I’ve read this book last year, so this is going to be a quick, little review of the book. I don’t want to let it be, because I enjoyed it too much for that…

I liked this story a lot, the characters were fun and very likable. The plot is well developed, fast paced and to the point. And the sex scenes were hot! The situation could’ve turned into an angst packed emotional roller coaster, but Ms. Ladd kept it light and enjoyable. The heroine is amazing and the girlfriend of every man's dreams. When she discovers her boyfriend’s gay fantasies she’s getting him a wonderful, unselfish gift. In return she gets a gift herself: a second hot man in her bedroom. I like it as well that the ending was kind of open where the third person in the threesome was concerned, but with a hint of a HEA for them all. And let’s talk about the smut a little bit more ;) The two guys really hit it off and were absolutely sexy together, which led to quite some orgasmic scenes.

So this was a sweet, sexy, tender and scorching hot romantic story that I can recommend when you like to read about ménages which include some guy on guy action!


  1. Wow, move the one guys hands down and you would see some major nippleage on that cover.

  2. I was giggling at the keywords - dang, they sure didn't leave much undone in that book! ;)

  3. @Katiebabs: It's a pretty hot cover, even without the major nippleage ;)

    @Chris: LOL, I just tried to cover all bases! :)

  4. I did like this.. however I think I am definitely reading too much m/m...

    I wanted the three to go just that bit further - I think Bianca would not have had any issues with that...

    Yummy guys..


  5. @EH: I am thinking that all the time too, about the reading to much M/M ;)
    But I thought that they díd take it 'that bit further'? Or am I imagining things here?
    O yes, very yummy :)

  6. I always love me some menage and M/M action so this sounds like a nice in-betweener for me. I'm reading me a Breed novel at the moment, after some UF I was in need of some serious smut :)

  7. So that was some nipple action I saw, I thought no it can't be. Smokin' hot cover for sure.

  8. @Leontine: It's def a nice, smutty in-betweener! :)

    @Blodeuedd: LOL! It can :)
