Stopped at page 42 so this one gets no rating...just my thoughts.

There was really no story & more sexual situations then anything. I love my sexxy times, but plesae give me a story and one worth reading. The plot made no sense. Stacey at age 33 decides to have one-night stands because of a bad break-up with her ex. Okay...I can understand that...I can get with that.

So she ends up having a menage relationship with two guys who just happen to be friends. *sigh* okay I gave you my reasons why I stopped this story in the first place. Plus this is not a romance...this is a straight sexual story. Because in the end Stacey ends up going back to her ex (I skipped to the end to see what happened). What was the point of sleeping with the two dudes? of developing this kind of relationship with them if she wan't going to stay? Isn't that the point of menage stories...to find a way to make the relationship work? All of this and she ends up back with the ex (who btw left her because he was scared...whateva).

Made no sense whatsoever.

But as always, what doesn't work for me just might work for you dear reader. Okay, I'm going off to read one of my challenge books AND hopefully another one with a crazy sexxy manipulating alpha male.

Sharonda (SexxyBlogger) is a avid reader who enjoys a good book, good music, loves red wine and has an unhealthy obsession with the sexxy alpha males she reads about. You can find her on Twitter and Facebook.  Happy Reading Reading Sexxys.


  1. I've read only a few menage stories and I tend to only like the ones that are developed into a romance and not just an experiment thing. I'm big on my erotica coming with a story line too or I'd just read straight porn and be done with it. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ugh! I would've DNFd this too! I guess she just want to give Slut a whirl or something?

  3. She actually was...but she starts to develope feelings and so do they but it just doesnt happen amd Im sitting here thinking wth?! Smh.

  4. I with u on all points Sophia. Hell I can look at porn if thats all I wanted...lols.

  5. Sharonda, I read this one too and I can understand why you DNF'd it. I requested it via Netgalley too & did not enjoy it. This book was just a hot mess and I didn't like the heroine at all and the lack of plot development made it hard to finish. I'm not sure if the author's intention is to make this into a serial or something because the way it ended had me going "WTF?" with heroine leaving for a new job and just ditching the two friends that she hooked up with. To put it short, not my kind of read.

  6. Weird got back with ex after all that. I love ménage and sexy reads but need a good plot. Reading sex after sex can get boring. Thanks for your honest review well said.

  7. Yes...all that and she goes back to the ex..smh . I mean she sleeps with these two dudes 90% of the book & I was jusr like come on now! Smh, just give me a plot to work with..something & I got nuthing.Plus...I really didnt like Stacy. ..lols.

  8. defnintely need a good plot...just something. I actually wanted to stop earlier than the 42 pages, but made myself read further. I go with Nina & say I did not like this woman at all.

  9. Ugh, definitely sounds like a DNF. I can't believe that she got back with the ex! One would think that with a publisher called Forever Yours, they would shy away from a book where the heroine is absolutely NOT. I saw this one on Netgalley, but it didn't speak to me. Guess I know why. :) Better luck on your next read.

  10. I know right! I loved the cover when I saw it on NG & then I like the blurb...definitely wasnt what I was expecting at all.

    Let's hope so...lols.

  11. Sucks that it didn't work for you. Although I have to say, it still is kind of appealing to me. I'd like to see someone have some fun with a couple guys without the story being too "heavy". :)

  12. Oh that sucks. I also like a story with my sexy times. If I wanted just sexy times I'd just watch porn or something, same thing basically. Thanks for the review, I think I have this one on my kindle. Now I know to avoid it.

  13. Oh, I like a story with my sexy times. If there is no story, then it's just that naughty word spammers pick up on. And to go back with an ex...well I can see that at times, but this one seems far fetched. She is just looking for heartache. Good thoughts on a DNF.

  14. lols @ naughty word spammers to pick up on. Yup exactly :)

    I think she was. I just assumed she would end up with the two guys, but I guess I was wrong.

    thanks Shari :)
