Terrific erotica featuring friends & their friends

“Party of Three” intrigued me for a couple reasons. First, this is Lori Prince narrating lesfic erotica, not just romance. Yes, I know…that alone is reason to get this audiobook!

A second reason is that I was in the middle of the interesting lesfic Pine Cone Romance series of three books. The Pine Cone series presents the stories of three different couples as events occur simultaneously in their lives. Each of the stories (Take My Hand, Take a Chance & Take Your Time) focuses on a different couple, and interestingly, each book was written by a different author. Happily, the same narrator was used for all three books so the voices were the same throughout the series.

At this point you may be wondering if I’m going to review “Party of Three”. Yes, of course I am. But here’s the interesting difference between PoT (sorry, couldn’t resist) and Pine Cone. In Pot, we also have three different couples interacting as a group, but here we have the stories unfolding sequentially instead of revisiting the same events through different perspectives.

I hope that makes sense. It was definitely enjoyable experiencing the two different methods of storytelling.

With specific regards to “Party of Three” - wow! Lori Prince needs to narrate more lesfic erotica, and new (for me) author Sandy Lowe needs to write more!!

The first couple presents recently dumped MC Sara and hot butch chef Ryan. Both are very likable and they have terrific chemistry. The sex is HOT, and their discussion of sex is just as fun!

The next couple, Spencer and Avery, are also both very likable. Spencer is a virgin who is studying to be a sex therapist, and she basically takes control to seduce Avery, who has loved her since….oh…forever!

Caitlin and Beck are the last of the three stories. I found this couple the least believable. I just couldn’t feel Caitlin’s intense interest in a woman who had unceremoniously dumped her a decade ago. Second chance stories abound these days, and they’re rarely my favorite trope, so YMMV.

I evaluate the situations as a HFM for Sara and Ryan, HEA for Avery and Spencer, and HEA for Caitlin and Beck. Their mutual “friend” Elenor is the glue that brought them back together, and she has some rather new adventures awaiting her….I hope!

5* for “Party of Three”; what a fun story and terrific narration!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

My rating and my review was not in anyway affected by my having been provided a review copy.

Wow. What a listen

One party.
Three friends.
One heck of a read.

This is a steamy read following three friends as they sort out their love lives in short order. Writing is excellent, scenes are very hot, and narration is an absolute 100.

Highly recommended

Book full of hotness 🔥

This audiobook is about 3 friends heading over to a party that changes their lives in ways that were unexpected. It’s really made up of short erotica stories that turned out to be quite titillating...Wowza Each story is it’s own tale and each story adds its own allure and intrigue. The author does a wonderful job with finding a different way of reaching the sensual side of us all and allowing us to see the delicious freedom of erotic acts of desire... If I could replace my 5 stars ⭐️ with 5 flames of hotness 🔥 I would!

Love can be very sexy

This book could qualify as a 1930’s madcap romance filled with 2020’s sex. Follow three delectable ladies as they resolve the problems created by romantic misadventures and tragedies experienced in their formative teenage years. I guarantee that you will laugh and maybe cry.
The sex is frequent, hot, serious and fun. The narrator dealt with the challenge of multiple characters well.

The first 35% is great, then it all unravels

The description owns exactly what this book is: the tale of a sex-filled night that basically splinters off into three separate stories once the three main characters, who are friends, get to the party where it all goes down. It had potential to be great fun.

The first story (between the chef and the baker) was both interesting plot-wise and hot hot HOT. It set me up to hope the stories for the other two main characters would be just as good.

Alas, they’re not. The rest of the book suffers from meandering, never-ending subplots involving Eleanor (the unofficial fourth friend who is insufferable and whose drama overtakes *hours* of the story). The constant meanderings rather than a tight focus on the central romances ultimately makes it really hard to care about the HEA once the two lovers finally get away from the group and get down. The magic of the build-up is lost, and all you’re left with are two really immature people who say a lot of lovey dovey words at each other and then have sex.

You have to admire the author’s determination to weave everyone together into one intersecting narrative, but it’s at the expense of the love stories. And I get that all the increasing outrageous happenings are supposed to be funny (and authors like Robin Alexander can pull that kind of thing off) but for me this writer misses the mark.

However, thank the mercies for good narrators! for Lori Prince was a pro as always! She made the experience better.

Three friends, three erotic encounters

The premise is that three friends go to a big 25th birthday bash for a billionaire heiress and have three separate erotic encounters. Each are basically their own separate story. I didn't read the book first so experienced this only via audio. I found one of the encounters somewhat titillating but the others were just so-so for me. I was trying to determine if that was because of the narration or the words themselves. Lori Prince is a favorite narrator of many and this was my first listen to one of her works. There are six different characters she needed to voice and that's certainly not easy. I think I may have gotten more out of it if I'd just read the book instead. Going to try a physical book by this author next time. I think we all have certain voice types that appeal to us and have found that narrators with low registered voices appeal to me most. I started and stopped this audiobook three times because the narrator provided free audio codes and I wanted to give it a fair listen. I can't say it was my cup of tea - though I do enjoy erotica - but I've seen reviews by others who enjoyed it a lot. Probably just a personal preference.

Wow

Narration is definitely on point. It’s a fantastic story that takes place all in one day. Looking for something beyond steamy this is definitely it.

Amazing

This was definitely not what i expected when I decided to give it a go but with that being said I really enjoyed this book, I think the author did a great job with the heat level in this book. I like the way that there were three different stories in one book and each told in the first person really worked as each one was tastefully done.

I really liked Sarah and Ryan story the best because who doesn’t love a woman in a uniform even a chefs uniform, talk about hot I had to fan myself at times.

Who would of thought that three stories all intertwined into one book could turn out so well written I think it takes a lot of talent to pull this off and Lowe did such an amazing job.
I have to admit I listen to this on Audible and let me tell you it was narrated by Lori Prince and she did a amazing job Prince put the heat in all the right places and she will forever be one of my top five narrators

So I say if your looking for a fun read with a lot of steaminess and all the romance then pull up a seat an get comfortable your in for a wild ride.

Sexy and fun and perfect narration

Lori Prince narrating Sandy Lowe is a match made in heaven. I think I liked Party of Three even better as an audiobook than when I read it. Actually, I don’t think, I know I did, which is why I’m upgrading it from 4* to 5*. Prince has a gift for voicing ironic and self-deprecating inner thoughts and there are plenty of those in this story. She’s also excellent at sexy scenes, and there are plenty of those too. Another thing I love with Lori Prince is that you always know who’s talking, even when, like here, there are sometimes many characters, most of them women. As steamy as they are, the stories told in Party of Three are also unexpectedly romantic. One evening, three friends, three love stories. And serious fun.

Great Narration

Lori Prince did a fantastic job with the narration of this book, found it easy to follow and each voice was indivual.
