Carnal Compromise

This spicy tale manages to incorporate a considerable number of erotic situations, including M/M, M/F/M, F/F, mild BDSM, and voyeurism with an entertaining incorporation of characters from a previous story. There are very poignant scenes that provide quite an emotional punch and depict some of the baggage that various characters have to deal with as well as a sobering warning about the dangers of working with heavy equipment. I was very uncomfortable with the pivotal scene between the two male protagonists as it crossed my particular tolerance level for dubious consent but the overall story is a very sensual read.

“Carnal Compromise” by Robin L. Rotham is a very steamy erotic tale of the complicated relationship between three traveling farmers. Joe Remke and Brent Andersen refuse to overtly acknowledge their mutual attraction until Ariel Jane Pender joins their crew and eventually catalyzes a very hot carnal encounter, which promptly sends Joe retreating. The three of them have to work out their dynamics and a visit to the couple introduced in the previous novella, “Carnal Harvest”, leads to an expansion in AJ’s sexual experiences and provides the males with a a show that fulfills some of their wildest fantasies. The trio’s up and down relationship comes to a shocking crisis and they all must decide whether they can risk sharing their hearts and their bodies.


Book Blurb for Carnal Compromise

Joe Remke just has one qualification for his lovers—he wants them gone before sunrise, which makes his new bunkmate AJ about as safe as a woman can be around him. It also makes his determination to sleep with his boss downright stupid, because if Brent ever gives in, he’ll be looking for a new job.

Brent Andersen knows sex with his right-hand man Joe is inevitable, but he’s not going down without a fight. Putting the new female hired hand in their cramped RV was a stroke of genius, taking the heat off him while protecting her from the horny guys on his custom farming crew.

AJ Pender’s bunkmates may hide their feelings for each other from the rest of the crew, but they aren’t fooling her—Brent and Joe are hot for each other, and it’s all she can do not to cry at the thought. Not that they’d be interested in her, of course, and if they ever found out she fantasizes about being the meat in their farmer sandwich, they’d probably die laughing.

Fortunately for Brent and Joe, fantasies have a way of outing themselves and AJ’s are right up their alley. But even three-ways have their risks, and AJ can serve as a buffer for only so long before the tension between them explodes.

Warning: Flying BOBs ahead—and that’s just the warm-up! Strap yourself in for a wild ride complete with ménage, m/m, and a voyeuristic f/f scene hot enough to make three grown men beg for mercy.
