Not getting any younger and certainly not beating off men with a stick, Olivia accepts Greg’s offer of an open relationship when they start dating. When she meets Jack she’s glad she did, as she cares for him as much as Greg, but in a way unique to them. As he’s also a “no strings” man it works out perfectly. When severe weather strikes she’s pleased that both her men have shown up to help her deal with her fear and to reinforce her home. So what’s with the sudden caveman posturing from both men?
The old saying “be careful what you wish for” is beautifully illustrated in this erotic tale. Greg is surprised to find himself not okay with Olivia seeing another man. And after having Jack investigated he can’t fathom what she sees in him. Jack sees a side of Olivia that Greg never does, as he’s earthy and the way he has sex is too. Greg is a professor and has some of the personality traits that go with it. On the surface. The mild professor has more up his sleeve than meets the eye. When the whole relationship quandary comes to a head these three have a unique way of rectifying it.
When I saw this would be a threesome, I figured same old. Not. The author pulled out some sexual shenanigans I haven’t seen in a book before, and that made this fresh to read. As there is some foreshadowing concerning sexual orientations, and some leading introspection at the end, I can’t wait for the next installment to see how our trio is maturing and evolving. A good read.
Emergency kit: Flashlight, check. Radio, check. One lover and a spare, double check.
So much for being her knight in shining armor. Much to Greg’s irritation, someone else got to his girlfriend Olivia’s house first: the other man in her life, wise-cracking Jack Randall. Never mind that the open relationship idea was his—what he really wants is Olivia all to himself. Now that they’re trapped together, though, getting Jack out of the picture is a problem.
Olivia has never been a fan of storms, but right now the only thing more uncomfortable than the one raging outside is the one brewing beneath her own roof. Although she’s thrilled to have both her lovers there to help her endure the hurricane, the friction between them is threatening to turn this into a very bad night.
Jack is more amused than annoyed. There’s not a doubt in his mind that after all is said and done, Olivia will pick him. How can she not? Out of the two of them, Jack is the one who is ready to close the door on their open relationship. All he has to do first is get rid of the uptight professor.
Easier said than done…
