Publisher's Summary

When the greatest coincidence of the year hits a Los Angeles supermarket, one average woman comes out the clear winner....

The set-up

Managing the frozen-food aisles at the market rarely brings excitement. Until average gal Maya Flores meets two female customers who want her to go out with them...separately, of course! 

Jocie Greer is the charismatic lover that she’s always desired. When they’re together, they’re on an adventure. Maya doesn’t have to think about the crumbling family waiting for her at home, or the nowhere job keeping her chained to a paycheck. 

And when she’s with Loren Hamilton, the professor who can quote from classic literature and the latest hot romance novel, Maya feels like the star of her own best-selling romance. The private tours of a college campus aren’t bad, either! 

But Maya knows that every great romance novel has a catch. She simply has to believe that it won’t happen to her....

The oh-no

Jocelyn Greer and Loren Hamilton go back all the way to boarding school, where they ruled as romantic rivals. Now, 20 years later, they’ve bumped into each other, and all hell is breaking loose! 

This might require telling Maya the truth about their past. And if there’s one thing Jocie and Loren would rather do than go down that road, it’s to admit something is wrong. Or that they might still like each other, too. 

Something has to give. Will it be Loren, who has turned her back on her old self anyway? Or Jocie, who knows she’ll never stand a chance against a trust-fund academic from freakin’ Brentwood? 

Maybe it will be Maya, as soon as she’s done milking this fling for all it’s worth! 

This is a ménage romance with a HEA.

Three times the charm

I loved the story. Maya, Loren and Jocie all have issues. Maya has family problems and low self esteem. Loren and Jocie share a past that they are hiding from. I really enjoyed the banter between all the characters and the growing love story. There are many layers to this story and it makes for a enjoyable listen. The narrator has a nice voice and if you up the speed a bit you don’t notice the long pauses. The sex between the three of them is so hot and sexy. They make use of every surface and toys too. You’ll need a cold shower 😉

Cute story, iffy narration

Cute story. Likable characters. Who doesn't like a hea, especially for three?! The narrator was ok. Could have used better editing. Many of the pauses where to long. The witty banter was read a bit to slow. I had to move up the speed just so I could finish the book. There were parts that had annoying background noises. But the story itself was enjoyable.

Good story / OK Narrator

First time listening to this narrator and although she has a nice voice, she pauses a lot and at the wrong places. It took me a while to get through the whole book. I had to speed up the narrator to try and get away from the constant pauses/breaks. The story over all was good.

Very good!!

I enjoyed the book very much! Great storyline!
The narration needs work though. It was like the narrator was just reading the book. If it was supposed to be just read, we should've been made aware of this.

Unconventional Love Story but Realistic!! Sexy!!

Maya manages the frozen foods of a trendy grocery store where she meets both Jocie and Lauren. She gets hit on by both and is attracted to them both. Even though she hasn't dated recently and it's obvious Jocie and Lauren have a history, she dates them both.

The sparks fly in this book until it becomes an inferno!

It's great to hear the POV from all 3 of them as they each have realistic struggles. Maya struggles to understand how they could be attracted to her as she has curves and a larger build. Both Lauren and Jocie reassure her they love her curves, but Maya's fears are very realistic.

Hildred Billings/Cynthia Dane is an excellent writer! You can really feel how these three characters really belong together. Wonderful story.

The narrator's voice was pleasing and acted out the scenes well, but there were a few moments where it could be confusing as to who was speaking. I already read the book, so I figured it out. Still felt the narrator did a good job overall.

This is highly recommended!!!

Three‘s awesome

Three‘s AWESOME
I liked that Jocie and Loren had had a rivalry since boarding school.
I have a soft spot for stories that go back to school days and from enemies to lovers! In this story, the MCs meet again 20 years later in an unexpected situation, pick up on the rivalry, and then have amazing chemistry.
Everything goes well together in this steamy and hot erotic romance.
All the hot scenes are great, as always, written by Cynthia Dane / Hildred Billings.
The different characters of this wonderful Manage á trois make it so interesting.
Maya is just the cute hard working girl next door with a wicked, kinky appetites.
She’s the perfect complement to Jocie Grees as a sexy, charismatic and confident businesswoman.
But also to Loren Hamilton as the softer, sexy butch who quotes classical literature because she's a professor at Brentwood.
Three very different women with history and awesome chemistry make an explosive threesome!
Highly recommend this!

The Narrator was good, but sometimes it was hard to tell who was speaking because she didn't give clearly different voices to the different characters…but that’s just my opinion. It could have been more sensual at some steamy scenes.

Good poly story, but narration could be better

Polyamory is a mystery to me. It is not something that I wish to explore in my own relationship but I'm not averse to reading about them in real life or in novels to find out how it all works. Unfortunately, there aren't that many poly books in the lesfic world that I know of and this is my first.

I'm going to say that this one is pretty good because I was bought over by the end of it and I could see why the arrangement works for Maya, Jocie and Loren. Each of them has a unique chemistry with another person that is made a little more interesting with the presence of the third person. Maya is a grocery store manager who gets to know hotshot sports agent, Jocie and associate professor, Loren on the same day and is asked out by both women. Maya, who has never had that much female attention showered on her before, decides to date both women separately. Jocie and Loren have a complicated history together. They were both a thing and rivals in boarding school, which basically means they slept with the same girls and with each other back then. With Maya between them now, a lot of good and bad feelings are also rekindled.

This story is sex-driven and while I think the scenes are well-written, I had problems liking Maya until perhaps the end. I mean, this whole open relationship seems like Jocie and Loren's thing. They're seasoned players and when they do it, it's cool. But Maya is just stoked to be dating two women who are supposedly above her league and she just seems out of place, out of character and sex-crazed in this whole episode. But I think this story came together well in the end, so I have to say I enjoyed it.

I wasn't impressed with the audiobook though. Half the time, I couldn't figure out which character was talking or when it was a spoken dialogue or an internal monologue. And I was pretty sure I heard faint background noises at some point. In the end, I had to finish up with the KU book instead.
