Publisher's Summary

How can a virgin seeking happily ever after with a hot pop star who has a penchant for threesomes win her fantasy man? Kimber Edgington desperately needs a plan to convince Jesse McCall, who's been her friend and secret crush since they spent a summer together as teenagers, that they are meant for each other. But all the tabloid stories about his sexual escapades make her feel oh so inadequate.

Determined to prove she's woman enough for Jesse, Kimber turns to bodyguard Deke Trenton for sexual education. Bold and brash, Deke warns Kimber that playing with him is playing with fire. But he can't bear to imagine the innocent beauty in someone else's arms. So Deke and his super sexy cousin, Luc, take Kimber under their wings and dangerously close to the edge of ecstasy. Though she's saved herself for Jesse, Kimber soon learns he's not the man adept at stroking her aching, endless need. That's Deke, and he can't resist when Kimber begs for more-and more.

What the Critics Say

"Hot sex scenes, a strong yet innocent heroine, two devastatingly sexy heroes and enough danger, intrigue and tragic pasts to keep the pages turning." (Romantic Times)

    "Erotic but a bit boring."

    Ok I know everyone loves Shayla Black and don't get me wrong she is good. This is the second book in the series and I keep waiting for the hook to get me to love these books. If you want erotic sex scenes, then they are definitely a hit. I just don't fall in love with the characters. I think the narrator was lacking. I know that Kimber was to sound young but her voice just grated on me. I kept hoping that she would use the voice that she narrated the story with. How do you expect to really buy a ménage with someone who sounds about 15. Some of the storyline did not make sense and the timeline was off. If you are just looking for an easy listen that does not require you to think too much, or really buy into the story then this is a good choice. It took me several days to listen to and I was on a road trip and still did not pick it. As I said, it is not a bad book it just lacks a complicated plot and characters that you just fall in love with and cannot get enough. I am not sure if I will get the next book although Luke's story could be interesting. I think that is it with these books. There is just enough of a tease to keep you coming back for more but then when you do it is a bit of a letdown. So in the end I am on the fence about this book and I don’t know if it was worth my credit or not. I guess I am a tough critic.

    "Good 2nd Book"

    Very good continuation of Wicked Ties. I loved the characters but I must say Deke's issue doesn't really make sense. It does, but it doesn't. I kinda feel like Black just needed to end the book so she came up with the lame reason for Deke's issue. Everything was on the same level as Wicked Ties up until that point. Still worth a good listen. Worth the credit. Just wait for your free credit. Don't buy this, use a free credit. Great listen though. Amazing smex! A little tooo amazing to be real if you ask me.

    ""The road to Ho is paved with good intentions""

    Along the 50 shades line, a good read, enjoyable and certainly hot. I enjoyed book one of the series much more, but this was a good follow up with characters introduced in the first novel.

    I haven't "read" a book since 1998, just not interested....after the 50 Shades Trilogy, I have become an audio book addict! I am a very tough critic.

    "NAUGHTY!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, IF she/he was into adult themes and graphic descriptions


    What did you like best about this story?

    Usually the background story (ie the non sex scenes) is strong - the premise was a bit weak -pining for a pop star- however the suspense & action kept me guessing to the end.


    What about Lexi Maynard’s performance did you like?

    She is perfect...I cannot think of a single thing to critique!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Sure, several...Deek was intriguing.

    let me start by saying i was shocked when i started reading this book, my public library offers the first book in the series for audio download. Based on this i didn't know this was erotica. When the story started i was blown away, the scenes were intense and the story over all was unexpected. i did enjoy the book. i would read more from this author.

    "Better than the first book......"

    I found this one better than the first book. Characters interacted more with each other than rambling thought dialog.

    Story
    "Spoilers..."

    ** spoiler alert ** I liked this book more than the first in the series, but it still has a few problems...

    This book was filled with knock your socks off steamy scenes, the problem for me is that Deke and Luc are cousins. That's weird for me. I know they don't actually touch each other during their sexcapades, but it's just weird. I felt like Luc was the gay best friend that is scared to come out of the closet. He's too sensitive. Deke is emotionally damaged and Kimber is his savior... we've heard this story before. Not to mention that the crime doesn't fit the punishment so to speak.

    Kimber's infatuation with a pop star is believable - but if she were truly in love with him would she really have let two mostly strange men do those hot and steamy things to her as tutors? In reality, no; but it makes the book interesting and we read books to escape reality, right?! Jesse's obsession with Kimber however is rather odd and I could have done without that whole part of the story.. but it leads to the only non steamy action scene in the book - where we finally see the original Deke - super hot, masculine, kick ass body guard.

    Overall it was a good listen. (audio book)

    You have to hand it Shayla, she can write some awesome sex scenes. For the most part the story is good, especially for the length of the book, I was never bored with it, always interested in what was going to happen next, and definitely a little hot under the collar a few times.

    "Menage for Virgins"

    Once again, Shayla Black almost wrote a really good book. Luke and Deke (cousins) were both fun and sexy. Kimber (tom boy nursing student) was refreshingly different from the typical lead female character - spunky, funny, strong. The problem: this intelligent, educated woman "wants" to learn about ménage so she can please an immature rock star that she hasn't seen in 5 years. Kimber "wants" to save her virginity for a childhood crush but "needs" to learn how to participate in orgies (since all rock stars do it), so she trusts 2 men she barely knows to teach her about oral and anal sex. What the hell? Please don't write a smart adult female character then have her do something only an immature teenager would think is a good idea. As always, Lexi Maynard was excellent as narrator.
