just broke up with her boyfriend. Tired of settling for gratuitous
sex, she craves someone to take over in the bedroom, tie her up, and
spank her when necessary. Bummed out and almost feeling sorry for
herself, Gracie does not think that she will ever find a man to
truly be what she craves in the bedroom. Telling this and all of
her deepest fantasies to her best friend, Gracie doesn’t know that
she was overheard.
and Gracie have been friends for years. When Luke overhears Gracie
telling their friend her secret fantasies, he is immediately curious
and aroused. Never having looked at Gracie romantically before,
Luke decides then and there that he is going to be the one man to
make her dreams come true. All he needs now is a plan and another
man. Who does he turn to but his best friend Wes.
Gracie and Luke
explore their feelings and decide to date. When Luke aroused Gracie
as no other before him, she decides to come clean about her
fantasies and to her relief; Luke is neither grossed out, nor turned
off. When they go away for a weekend together for Valentine’s,
Gracie finds herself falling in love with Luke. Things come crashing
to a halt when Gracie overhears Luke and Wes discussing her and
mortified, Gracie runs away without allowing Luke to explain.
I don’t know
how Maya Banks does it but this author can write a ménage like no
other. Luke was sexy as all get out and pure sin on a stick. Add
Wes to the equation and you have two sexy men captivated by and
focused on Gracie. I found myself wanting to be in Gracie’s shoes,
if even for a minute, just to see those men in action. Gracie took
a chance on Luke and I am glad she did. Their emotions and feelings
for each other were exquisite.

looking forward to each new release!
