A man yearning to explore his sexual tastes but afraid to turn up the heat, the woman who loves him but is hungry for more spice…and the chef who craves them both.

When Grace, Philip and Mark find a mobster’s flash drive full of incriminating information, they are quickly embroiled in a dangerous situation. They stay together for safety, but proximity ignites the sparks they’ve long been fighting to ignore.

When three friends dare to succumb to their appetites, they find the perfect recipe for love.

If this were a print book, my pages would have curled from the steam. Samantha Wayland has written a marvellously erotic tale. Philip, Grace, and Mark have an unforgettable chemistry that will have you squirming in your chair. Philip is a straight laced lawyer who has been downplaying his dominant side with Grace. He worries that she is too innocent to accept his lecherous advances. But Grace, a student and hostess at Valentine’s, has a surprise in mind, and sets out to make Philip break that restrained control. An encounter between the three at Mark’s restaurant, Valentine, sets the stage, and the three soon find themselves together in some very spicy romps in bed!

I absolutely loved the teasing that took place between Mark and Grace. They knew anything between them was forbidden, and yet they took a distinct pleasure in flirting and teasing each other. You knew that they had a connection, that they wanted more than what they had, but were constrained by their circumstances. Samantha did an outstanding job portraying the small amount of D/s in the story. Philip was very unsure of himself, unsure of how Grace would react to any dominance. Reading the reactions and nuances was very beautiful indeed. I was also very impressed with how the scenes with Philip and Mark were created. Philip had never before been attracted to another man and to see him grow and accept, well, it was done with remarkable skill. Throughout these intense love scenes there is also the mystery aspect. Again, this was well written and I found myself yelling at the characters in my head, telling them what they had to do. Samantha once again did a superb job telling this side story.

I highly recommend this book to those who love a good erotica, man on man, and an impressively written ménage.

I stayed up reading this all night, totally spun up and then ultimately wrung-out and satisfied by the super sexy scenes with these three incredibly well-written characters. I love that Ms. Wayland gave us a window into each of their fears and desires which fueled the suspense and anticipation. This action-packed story has gritty and witty personality with sensuously soft edges.

I want more from Samantha Wayland!!
