Ella is beside herself with excitement. It's her name day, and she and her husband have made it a custom to take turns in arranging gifts for each other on their special day. Not just any kind of gifts though - sexy gifts that will ignite new levels of passion in the bedroom. After 20 years of marriage and devotion to each other and having two teenage children, they started the tradition as a way of spicing things up between them. After her extravagant gift to Ryan the previous year, Ella is going wild imagining just what her husband may have arranged for her, and spends the day setting the scene with candles and sensual lingerie. When he arrives home with a sexy stranger in tow, her mind starts racing with the possibilities and her heart starts racing with desire....
Everett and Ella have been together since high school. Celebrating each others birthday is not enough occasion to drown one another in love and gifts, so they celebrate 'name day' – giving one another extra occasion every other year. Sorry for the confusing explanation – it's not really important to the story.
In over the top descriptions of the over the top bathroom and bedroom – along with over-the-top descriptions of the devotion and love and for Everett [and vice versa] – we finally get to the main event. Actually we get to hear about last 'name day' and Ella's gift for Everett first.
I felt this was over the top (could you guess that*smile*?) Some listeners may like detailed descriptions of decor – this was a bit too much for me. Potential listeners should know that this short contained gay/lesbian sex, this was not mentioned in the description or category.3.25 stars
Olivia Patterson has a lovely British accent. It was almost too classy for the material. However, I suppose people of all classes speak of this material in their personal lives.3.5 stars
This book is ear candy for someone who enjoys erotica – lots of sex crammed into less than one hour.

I liked this story but I would have liked less build-up and more of the actual encounter. More than half the story was background information and anticipating the "gift." When the guys finally arrived and the trio engaged, it was hot and sexy, However, that portion was over way too fast, and I felt a little cheated after the long wait for the action. Still, what there was was STEAMY! One thing I really liked about this story was that there was a truly loving relationship between the couple. It wasn't just sex, there was romance and true affection.
The narrator was wonderful! Her voice was smooth and almost lilting, and her delivery was relaxed and perfectly paced. I would readily listen to other erotic tales from this author and/or narrator.
I was voluntarily provided a free review copy of this audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Almost every ladies fantasy.. you loving husband who brings home a treat.
and a hot one at that..
good story, and sort of left you wanting just a little bit more.. Well, alot more.
Olivia has a great narration voice as well!
This delightful little book is quite short, but it packs a real punch. It manages to fit in a back story that makes sense, some remembered sex play and one super hot present moment sex scene.
If you're looking for a short MFM erotic story then look no further this one is a winner! You get a sexy and loving couple with an extra sexy male thrown in for good measure.
The narration is well done and adds to the intensity of the written scene.
I'll bee looking for more from both Roxy Hart and Olivia Patterson.
