What does a man give the woman of his dreams for her birthday? Her fantasy, of course. When Amanda admits to her husband that she'd like to be part of a ménage a trois, Jake isn’t sure if he could ever share his wife with another man.
Then his cousin Patrick comes for a visit.
It’s Amanda’s birthday and she’s told her husband Jake her wish…to have a ménage a trois. Will this be one wish that goes unanswered?
This story had the perfect start and wasted no time letting us know what was ahead. Jake wants to give Amanda a birthday she’ll never forget and that means talking his cousin Patrick into being part of a threesome. The dialogue between these two characters is very realistic which leads perfectly into the next scene where we get to meet Amanda, who the other two characters have been talking about. She has no idea that Jake’s taken her wish seriously and what’s in store for her but we do and I think it makes this story fun.
The scenes leading up to the ménage are well paced and sexy. I enjoyed the way the author kept me guessing as to whether or not Amanda would chicken out at the last minute. I enjoyed all three characters and thought they were very lifelike. The author did a great job leading up to the sex scenes which are definitely worth waiting for.
If you’re looking for a quick read, like a story that keeps you hanging on and some steamy ménage, I recommend this story to you.
