The two gorgeous men on her doorstep look like the answer to Carly’s sexual frustration. She has a score to settle with one, and he’s brought a peace offering in the form of a hunky friend. Carly knows Jake’s darkest secrets and, at one time, desired him anyway. Now she won’t settle. She wants it all. Jake’s hard and furious, Trey’s slow and tender.

Ten years ago, Jake took everything Carly offered, any way he wanted, then abandoned her for the rodeo, danger and the open road. When he decides he still wants the one woman who accepted his rough sexual needs, he won’t settle for less. He’ll do what he must to convince her he’ll be enough. If she wants Trey, Jake will share her, but only for now.

Who says you can’t go home again?

How can a woman resist loving two men, especially when one used to be a bona fide cowboy? How can she chose only one and which one won’t break her heart?

The answers can be found in the very sensual and erotic romance of Any Way West.

The book basically jumps into a reunion of old lovers and the internal conflict is just enough to give good reasons for making what happens believable and interesting.

Carly is an artist who returns to the home she knew. A place filled with hot memories of a lover and sadness and hurt because of the same guy. I thought Carly to be a pretty courageous woman because it isn’t easy to go back and face the past. Especially when said past starts unloading your truck.

Jake is the man with some serious growing up to do. He was pretty stupid way back when. At least, that’s my take on it. I guess he was scared mostly, but being a typical guy, he didn’t handle his emotions well and didn’t make the best choice in dealing with them. Now he has to decide once and for all – what does he really want out of life and what is he willing to do to make it happen. It gets more complicated because it’s not just him this time around. He’s got serious competition.

Trey acts like a happy sexual facilitator. He is very interested in Carly, doesn’t mind sharing and has the sensitivity to realize what is really going on. His contribution to the story makes it sizzle and pop and he’s a really nice guy. It was a toss-up as to who I liked better for Carly.

Ms. March did an awesome job with the waterfall scene. I loved the buildup, the descriptions and the scorching love scenes. I also thought the author chose the most romantic and perfect place for what she chose to have happen there. Ms. March wove many opportunities for the threesome to explore their sexual cravings and no sensual stone was left unturned throughout the story. She has a way with words and if a reader is looking for well choreographed and steamy scenes then this book will satisfy.

I personally wished that there was a bit more development of the characters because I prefer more substance to the stories I read, but even saying that, I admit that the author wrote in a well balanced amount to do her story justice and for a reader to be happy with Carly’s eventual choice.

Any Way West is the book to read for a reader who is in the mood for a romance filled to the brim with hot and inventive ways that burn up the pages with a wild and passionate threesome. The buildup to Carly’s eventual choice was believable and enjoyable. The author had a good grasp of what makes a ménage work and has the descriptions and dialogue to prove it. It’s a quick read and quite entertaining; and I think it will appeal to readers who like deliciously naughty romances with a happily ever after totally in line with the personalities of the hero and heroine.
