Good Books Don't Promote Violence
Fun and sexy story of childhood friends who find love in a menage on a Hawaiian island. There is suspense from a stalker old boyfriend and drama when family & friends find out about the threesome. Lots of loving sex and no violence - my kind of romantic novel.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good story. I liked Hailey, Mark and Tony and their story was interesting and had some unexpected elements in it. This is the first book I've read by this author and based on this I'd be willing to try more of her work in the future.
Hailey is a grant writer in Albuquerque. Her parent where killed years ago and her and her brother, Jake, are very close because of that loss. Hailey has been in love with Jake's best friends, Mark & Tony, for years but could never choose between them so she's never made an approach at either. Hailey has tried to date other men but with crappy luck. Her most recent boyfriend, Daniel, ended up abusive so she broke things off with him before going on her annual vacation with Jake, his wife, his wife's brother and sister, Mark, Tony & Hailey.
Mark is an artist and Tony is a pediatric surgeon. They've both loved Hailey for years and they had an agreement not to approach Hailey and see if she would pick one of them. When her most recent boyfriend ended up being a jerk that treated her badly, Mark and Tony decide they're through waiting. They decide not to fight over her but to win her in to a menage relationship. And hope they can keep Jake from killing them for doing that with his baby sister...
Hailey broke up with Daniel right before leaving for her vacation to Hawaii. Daniel was livid about her going but it's a regular family vacation and Hailey wasn't going to miss it. Daniel going overboard about the vacation is what made Hailey realize she needed to break up with him. His ugly and violent reaction to her breaking up with him has Hailey kind of freaked and hoping he doesn't follow her to Hawaii to cause trouble. She tries to convince herself that he wouldn't though, since she could never seem to make him happy why should he really care? Hailey, Mark and Tony all live in Albuquerque so they travel to Hawaii together. The trio has been close since they were very young (around 25 years) and spend a lot of time together. They've always been close but when Hailey gets the indication that Mark is wanting something more, something sexual, she's unsure what to think. When she finds out it's both Mark and Tony wanting more with her, she's even more confused and the guys have to explain to her that they've been wanting her for a long time and now they want to share her. Hailey doesn't take too long to mull things over before she knows she wants to try this relationship. She does worry that if it doesn't work out it could ruin a lot of friendships.
One friendship to worry about is Hailey's brother, Jake. They decide to try to keep him in the dark about their fledgling relationship to give themselves time to settle in to things before facing Jake's wrath. As their vacation starts it soon becomes apparent that everyone is aware of the new relationship except for Jake. Hailey, Tony and Mark sneak what time they can together but eventually things explode when Jake realizes what's going on between the trio. There's major drama there but when Daniel shows up on the island looking for Hailey and not being too nice about it, Jake's concerns are the least of their worries. They manage to finish their vacation (at least most of it) without further troubles from Daniel but when they get home things aren't good. Daniel is incensed that Hailey wont take him back and starts causing issues and threatening danger. Tony and Mark try to protect Hailey because the law doesn't do much to protect women against an obsessed stalker but they can only do so much and can't be with her all of the time. Things looks bad for a while and get worse before things end but thankfully Hailey, Mark and Tony are able to get past the danger and issues and come out heading in to their HEA.
This was a very enjoyable story. I like menage stories and this one was typical in some ways but with some unexpected elements. Hailey, Mark and Tony were all good characters and I was happy to see them get their HEA at the end. I'd recommend this book. Thumbs up. :)
this is most every womans dream come true

no but she was ok
the book was not a good buy, not worth buying save your money
not if its like this one
alot of stupid plots no idea of where it was going
As a lover or romance and erotica I have to wonder, WHY IS THIS HER ONLY BOOK? This book is amazing! I have read it from start to finish at least 28 times since getting this book just last week. The details are excellent I can see and feel every word and the narrator is amazing bringing each character to life. Her voice inflections are on point. I am not sure if it is because this is my ultimate fantasy or what but I am in love with this writer and very disappointment she does not have any more books for my enjoyment. As long as I have been a member of audible I have only been compelled to write a review on only one other book. I am your biggest fan!!!! Please share more of your talent with us. Please write a part two….
I came accross this book by mistake and SO glad I did!
Very poorly written; also poorly read, with the reader attempting southern accents when it was obvious that she has no clue what a southern accent should sound like. Boring. boring, boring! I don't believe these good reviews are actual reviews. There was nothing in this novel that I found even remotely erotic. This would appeal to a teenager - maybe, but that's about it. This novel was a total dissapointment.
I will never again buy anything written by this author; this author can't write! The style is amateurish at best.
Almost any reader could have done better, much better. Her accents were terrible; Hailey's voice was that of a young, shy, immature girl, not a sexually mature woman.
This is so badly written that it is not salvageable.
This should not even be offerred for sale. It is not worth downloading for free. I really think many of the good comments must be fake.
This was a waste of my credit! The story was weak and a little unbelievable, the main character (Hailey) was annoying, and the ending was even worse. I thought the narrator was horrible!! This book just did not work for me...the only thing that could make it better would be if I could get my credit back to use on something else. Don't waste your time on this.
The story is unrealistic. My brother would kill me!!! The Southern accents were terrible,
The Southen accent and different voices were terrible.
Yes, fun read.
The guys (Mark & Tony)
Mark & Tony
A woman's desire.
This book is hot, am jealous of Hailey, lol...good & fun story.
