Dani's Duo

Attorney Danika James has just won her biggest case to date and is ready to celebrate. What most people don't know is that under that straight lace suit is a woman who has a wild side. Instead of a sedate dinner and drinks, Danika is headed to her favorite tattoo pallor to get her second nipple pierced!

The pallor Danika is headed to is run by a long time friend and someone she can trust. Unfortunately Danika's friend isn't around but he tells her to see Paddy O'Shea.

Paddy isn't what Danika was expecting and she's a bit embarrassed on how much her body is reacting to him. It's a little hard to hide when you don't have your shirt or bra on! It's really embarrassing when Paddy only treats Danika as a customer and shows no interest in her.

That is about to change when they bump into each other at a local bar. Danika is with her best friend while Paddy is with his room mate and a man Danika has lusted after for about a year, Cooper Hanes. Now this should be interesting as Danika is interested in both men and they seem to be interested in her.

Paddy and Cooper have a solution if Danika is interested. They've shared women before and are more than willing to do it again, if Danika is willing. These guys aren't going to do anything she's not willing to do. With Danika's friend urging her on, Danika takes on these two guys for the night which stretches into the weekend.

This arrangement seems to work for them but what would people say? Danika has a job where she is sometimes in the public spotlight. Cooper and Danika see each other through their work. Can they figure something out or will this just be a glorious weekend?

Absolutely fantastic story that drew me in quickly and one where I just didn't want to let it go.

The characters are real. Danika presents herself in the way she thinks people need to see her to take her seriously. She has worked hard to get to where she's at and she's doesn't want to jeopardize it. Cooper works in law enforcement with a bunch of guys who like to brag. He doesn't get it and doesn't participate but can he keep his mouth closed when comments are made about Danika. Paddy heads south to Cuba when the weather in Canada gets cold. He's a true tattoo artist and people love his work. Of all of the characters, he's the one most likely to act unconventionally but even Paddy has standards and ethics.

The problem is a concern. How would people take a commented threesome? Danika doesn't want her friends to think less of her or her men. If they can just present themselves as a couple with a friend, will it work without hurt feelings? Can they pull it off?

I really truly loved this story. It was so alive and seems so possible. I quickly fell in love with Danika and soon Paddy, only to find Cooper was just as irresistible. I wanted this story to go on and on. I just didn't want to let them go. As they work their way through their relationships, I wanted so much for them to figure it all out without anyone getting their feelings hurt. However, as in real life, there are bumps in the road.

I have to highly recommend this story.
