Publisher's Summary

It seemed like they had everything, but they didn’t have Jack.  

Without question Spencer Hartley burns hot for his girlfriend, Rory, but his other desires are hidden down deep. He might blow things up for a living and climb mountains for kicks, but the scariest thing in his life is the truth about his sexuality.  

Jack Rothman works hard and plays dirty. After long, demanding days in his family's engineering firm, he indulges in the pleasures of silk restraints and fine wine. Lots of hot meaningless sex helps him forget that he's suffocating, with no one to give him a reason to breathe.  

When a catastrophic accident traps Spencer in a flooded subway tunnel with Jack, they need each other to survive. But something strong stirs down there in the darkness, and it's more than their desperation to live. There's a spark between them that's impossible to ignore.  

Rory Campbell would love to give Spencer the one thing he doesn’t have, the freedom to explore his secret desires. But how does that fit into her picture-perfect relationship? When Jack invites the couple to his sprawling Hamptons beach house, Rory realizes that she has secret desires of her own - the kind only Jack's dominant hand across her bare bottom can satisfy.

While my view of this story didn't change from eBook to Audio, I will say the audio version was 80/20 for me. In the beginning I had a hard time with the duet narration but once I got used to it, I loved the audiobook too! I think duet narration is a hard one because it's very rare that it flows perfectly from chapter 1. And that is exactly how this one felt to me, it was a little choppy and jarring when it started and I felt like the narration was all I noticed in the beginning but once I got into it, the narration fade behind the story. This isn't me saying I didn't like the narrators, they did a good job, it's just the style of narration in my opinion. That being said... I loved this story and will listen to this audio again because MAN, IT WAS HOT!!!!!

Original eBook review:
HOLY HOT!!! I'd give this book 10 stars if I could! This may be the hottest MMF book I've ever read! I really liked the way this was written, the author had me completely enthralled after chapter 2 and I could almost see these scenes play out in my head!

I love the relationship between Rory and Spencer, they are so honest and in love, they know what they want and when that changes it just makes their relationship stronger. Jack's attraction to Spencer screams at you from the beginning! Jack is seriously dominant and he knows when he has a great thing and he jumps in with both feet. The relationship shared between the three of them is exactly what I wanted it to be! They are sweet, sexy and so in love! I'm so excited that Swept came out yesterday so I can devour that book next

Great story.

Enjoyed the story. Only issue was the girl voice was the same sound when talking and when she was turned on. Which was a little annoying. But I got past it because I enjoyed the story.

Polished Book One

Polished Book One

Spencer Hartley and Rory Campbell have been together for years, but something has always been missing. Rory knows that Spencer is looking for more of a thrill, but he cannot admit that even to himself. When Spencer and his boss, Jack Rothman, are trapped underground and underwater in a subway tunnel, the two feel a spark of something that could become more. Jack's overbearing father demands that he ensures Spencer's cooperation in the future by inviting Spencer and Rory to their home in the Hamptons. When they visit, Jack shows them a new type of thrill that even Spencer cannot deny.

If you've been looking for a MMF Romance with a bit of suspense and overcoming emotional baggage thrown in, this is the book for you!

Audio Review:
Erin Batemen and George Orlando work well together in a duet narration of the story. The transitions are mostly seamless, although they might be better if listened to at a faster speed (I listened at 1x).

SIDE BY SIDE DIALOGUE THAT IS JUST FASCINATING!

WOW!! I just finished listening to this audiobook and I absolutely loved it! The plot and storyline are fascinating, A mind-blowing experience listening to the character on a side by side dialogue.

A fabulous performance by Erin Bateman and George Orlando that's easily visualize. Emotions and situations that are well conveyed and passionate scenes deliciously narrated. Memorable characters that feel like real people with their vulnerabilities, and/or facing life’s harsh realities.

This is not just a Menage Romance, but a believable, interesting, intriguing, enthralling and very emotional love story that I highly recommend!!

Sexy with a side of sweet!

Polished is not your typical MMF romance and I love that! There was love, steam, lies, and deceit which turned this into one amazing story! I look forward to reading the rest of the series!

The narration was amazing! This was the first book narrated by George Orlando that I have listened to and I instantly became a fan! Erin also did an amazing job!

Erotic and emotional audiobook journey

This book did it all for me; kept me on the edge of my seat, I was fired up and felt as if I was right there, with the characters in their bed. I felt their pain and their pleasure.
The narrators were excellent, I especially enjoyed Erin Bateman's voice and the way she brought Rory's character to life.
Definitely will look for more books by this talented author.

Excellent duet narration!

Spencer Hartley and his live-in girlfriend Rory Campbell have an almost perfect relationship. They’re best friends living a good life and having an off-the-charts physical relationship. But...Spencer can’t seem to ignore his attraction to other men, especially Jack Rothman, the arrogant consultant he’s working with. When they get stuck for hours in an underground tunnel following an explosion, his feelings are hard to ignore. Meanwhile, Rory is aware of Spencer’s other side (Jack sees it, too) but doesn’t know how to approach the subject she’s open to exploring.

I really liked this story, primarily because the characters were so refreshing and honest. Spencer and Rory were quite happy in their relationship so it wasn’t about anything missing. Jack was quite lonely, isolated and frustrated with his career and personal life, having to hide his bi-sexuality. When circumstances caused the three of them to be together overnight, the spark was lit and refused to be extinguished. Yes, the sexual encounters were explosive (pardon the pun given Spencer’s vocation) and highly erotic but more importantly, the story and characterizations were so very strong throughout.

This is also a duet narration (where the male and female narrators transition anytime there is a gender change in dialogue or narrative) and it was superbly executed. Both narrators were excellent, especially Erin Bateman. She was SO good!

I kind of inhaled this book, finishing it in a day. Loved the characters and the erotica, which was well done by the way. It really helped define the three and I liked how their issues were developed and resolved. Nothing easy here and the audio performance made a difference for me. Looking forward to the next chapter in this relationship.

(I received an advance copy from the author in exchange for an unbiased review)

Not your typical story

I loved that this book was a touch of dark with a little light BDSM in the book. The lies, deceit, and all of the twists and turns made for an amazing awesome book. I loved the side by side narration. Well done!!

A GOOD LISTEN

The narrators did a credible job, although to be honest I much preferred the male narrator over the female.

Rory and Spencer have been together for years and in fact Spencer plans to propose soon. However there is one slight problem he needs to overcome, his bi-sexuality which he has not come to terms with.

Jack works in the family business and meets Spencer through work; a job he hates.

Rory knows that Spencer has needs he has not faced and is not shocked or opposed to him exploring them. However Spencer has mo intention of doing so, until an accident puts him and Jack together trapped underground awaiting rescue.

Whilst awaiting rescue , both men injured, they have nothing to do but get to know each other. Both of them are attracted to each other but Spencer pushes down his feelings.

Once rescued Rory and Spencer offer Jack their spare room for the night.

There are sparks of attraction smouldering between all three, the only question is whether any of them will have the courage to act on them.

Jack is a Dominant Alpha and he senses the needs and longings in both Spencer and Rory. want my own Jack and Spencer

I want my own Jack and Spencer. I found the characters easy to relate too, perhaps because Ms. Turner allowed the flaws and insecurities to shine through, making the story more realistic.

When a misunderstanding tears them apart, will they be able to move through it and find what they all need? Or will the relationship be over before it has a chance to flourish?
