Candice has plans for her future. She is going to become a nurse, eventually find herself a nice man to marry, and lead a quiet, middle-class existence utterly devoid of emotional super highs and super lows. All of this makes perfect sense…right up to the time the town’s ultra-alpha policeman decides to make Candice his own.
On that very same day, the boomtown’s most gorgeous oilman billionaire also decides that Candice is the woman he needs to make his life complete. When passion erupts, unplanned and most definitely uncharacteristic, Candice’s life is thrown into chaos.
Can Candice find fulfillment and lifelong love in the arms of two men so opposite from one another? Can these men, so strong in their own right, share their love for Candice?
Which would you choose? The charming billionaire playboy with a voracious sexual appetite or the very able bodied Sergeant with a penchant for using handcuffs? For Candice, the decision isn’t quite so easy, especially when they take matters into their own hands.
Candice never thought two of New Oslo’s hottest men would be vying for her attention. Little do they know that she is secretly seeing them both and can’t seem to stop the fast-paced sexual journey she’s taken with each of them. Now the men have developed feelings for Candice and want to go public with the relationship. Unable to decide and unable to stop the passion each man ignites when present, fate intervenes with the chance of a lifetime – what if Candice doesn’t have to choose? Of course not everyone is happy that Candice has started a new chapter in her life and he’s going to make certain that she regrets it.
Ms. Gideon takes some wickedly hot sex and turns the heat up a notch with a voyeuristic touch. The positioning and situations the characters are in while together creates some very stimulating imagery. Unfortunately, there are some slightly annoying editing errors and the story lacked fluidity between scenes. The emotional and devotional depth to which the characters professed for each other came about quickly, so while I desperately wanted to believe in the magnetic pull between Candice and the men it wasn't quite there. The story does offer a realistic look at how a ménage might be dealt with in society and the uncertainty and insecurities that go with it.
I would definitely recommend this story to readers looking for a hot and heavy ménage relationship that strives to push inhibitions aside. Since this is the first in a new series by Ms. Gideon, it will be interesting to see what she comes up with next.
