Carolina “Carrie” Derosa had the hots for her boss, Drew Magellan, from the first day she went to work for him. Little did she know that Drew wanted her just as badly, but the same thing was holding them back—taboo on sex in the workplace.

When Drew’s friend, Linc Conover, drops into the office to see him after hours and they bump into Carrie on her way out, the sparks that fly from all three light up the hallway. It doesn’t take long before they adjourn to Drew’s condo and fall into a whirlpool of eroticism.

But no one expects jealousy to rear its ugly head. Who will come out on top in this ménage—so to speak?

Investment Broker Drew Magellan, a hot, sexy hunk, has it all... but wants only Carolina, the one woman he seems unable to impress. The gorgeous, blond Client Manager in his company doesn't even seem to see him. But what he doesn't know is that Carolina Derosa fantasizes about him all the time. She can't get him out of her mind. It has been ages since she has had sex, and hot dreams about her boss just aren't cutting it any more. She craves a real relationship.

Tall, classically handsome, Link Conover is just back after two years as a private contractor in the Middle East. He and Drew, long-time best friends, have always shared everything including their women and know each other well. Their motto being share and share alike, they have perfected the wonders and the finer points of menage over the years. Making a superior experience for the women they share is of the utmost in their goals. And they've succeeded expertly, always leaving happy, satisfied women who never forget the experience.

Working late one night, Carrie is fantasizing about having hot sex with Drew. Then she literally runs into him with his friend, Link. After introductions, while riding the elevator down with them, both men come on to her. With the men both brushing up against her, she is aching with desire in no time. They invite her out for a drink and she accepts. During the drinks in the bar, sandwiched between the two men in the booth, it becomes clear that they are intent on much more. When Drew asks her to come up to his place with Link for one more drink, she knows just what they have in mind and she can't resist. The woman is obviously faced with a major moment of truth: to take the risk and live to the fullest, or to always have to wonder what would have been.

Because Drew is breaking his strict rule not to get involved with his employees, I knew that more was going on here than a casual affair. I like how the author shows his surprise over his feelings of possessiveness and over the depth of the emotions he feels towards Carrie as the night goes on. His mind is made up before the evening's end that he will find a way to have her to keep, if he can.

This sensual, arousing tale is blazing with intoxicating lust. The sexual action is intense, electrifying and at the same time sensitive and deliciously intimate. As hot as it is, it is also a romance unfolding in it's first breathless moment of awareness. The ending is a delightful surprise. I recommend this sexy, fun story and will be reading more of Desiree Holt's work myself soon.
