Their love might be the only thing more powerful than the paparazzi.

When curvy grad student Emma Fischer is stranded in the south of France, she’s short on cash and unable to speak French. The last people she expects to come to her aide at the train station are two high-demand fashion models in France for a photo shoot. Sparks fly between the threesome as they speed towards Paris in their private car.

Emma gets on the train a girl, but the intimate time spent in the dominant men’s arms over one hot weekend turns her into a woman. Walking away from her lovers to return to her average life in Wisconsin is one of the hardest things she’s ever done.

The men have been seeking a way to turn their friendship into a romance, and Emma is the perfect missing ingredient to make that happen.

Can a romance that started as a fun summer fling turn into something long lasting for the trio? Will Jaxson’s powerful father ruin their chance at their own happily ever after? Find out this and more in this sexy, exciting ménage novel where love might really be the only thing more powerful than the paparazzi.

Where To Buy:

This was a hot and sexy story that I really enjoyed. The sex scenes were off the charts hot. I always enjoyed reading Ms. Grant’s power exchange scenes. She does such a job of bringing the sexy aspect and the emotional as well. I liked seeing Emma, Chase, and Jaxson find their way together as a throuple, and as individuals. I worried if they were going to make it at times, but I’m happy with how everything came about in the end.

Jaxson was all kinds of sexy. His control over Emma and Chase was so sensual. It was effortless the way he took charge of things when needed. His feelings for Chase and Emma grew slowly and I enjoyed getting to see those walls come down over time. Though the scenes where he’s vulnerable towards the end made me like him even more. Getting to see his insecurities and his protective streak at the same time was wonderful.

Chase was a total sweetheart. I adored him right from the beginning. His happy go lucky tendencies made him come alive on the page. He wore his heart on his sleeve and it was wonderful seeing him able to express his feelings openly by the end of the story. The scenes where he takes charge are wonderful. You can tell he relishes giving what is needed when it’s needed.

Emma was someone I struggled to connect with a little bit. But you could tell she was a well thought out character. She went for what she wanted at times and I admired her strength. She grew so much over the course of the story. I liked watching her get more comfortable with and open about her relationship with Chase and Jaxson.

There were only two parts that twanged with me as I was reading. The first was how Emma met Chase and Jaxson at first. It felt a little forced. Plus I wasn’t a fan of how she trusted Chase and Jaxson so quickly. The second was how Emma’s body image issues were handled. I liked the punishment Jaxson and Chase gave. But I felt more correction should have happened earlier in the story. Jaxson and Chase should have told her in little ways how they felt about her. Especially when out in public. A “beautiful” or “sexy” term of endearment to help internalize what they were saying would have helped as well.

The story ended in a very sweet ending. It’s that nice spot between happy for now and happily ever after. You end with so much faith these three will make it and be happy together. But you also know they still have some obstacles to overcome before they can settle and be happy. I’d love to see more of these three.
