Stella Gilbert, lowly file clerk for a law firm, wants to pay off her secret debt incurred right before her mother died. Her pride won’t allow a man to pay her bills, unlike her mother, who had no problem with a man, any man, paying for everything.

Dominick Hunter and Tyler Wilson want to see to the completion of the newly constructed DRMC headquarters and sexual playground in Ryder, Colorado before moving back to their own property up north. They expect to enjoy their membership even more with the new “Stadium” for their annual live sex shows. But a beautiful, stranded accident victim, found outside the gates of the DRMC property, with excellent cooking skills and a strong curiosity about their unbridled lifestyle makes them reconsider their plans of leaving the state.

When Stella finds herself stranded on an icy road in the middle of the biggest and strongest snowstorm in years, she could never have anticipated the wonderful men that came to her rescue. Old and dear friends, Dominick and Tyler come across Stella and her broken down car and offer her the warmth and safety of their ranch. As soon as Stella finds out what kind of ranch it is, she becomes curious and ready to indulge in a few ideas of her own. The question is, will it all be too much for Stella or has she found the men of her dreams?

Dominick and Tyler are totally different men, from physical appearances to personalities, yet they are great friends that love the same thing: Stella. Both are wonderful men and I would be hard pressed to say one is better than the other. Both men made an impression on this reader.

Although I loved the men, I didn’t really connect with Stella. I can’t say specifically what it was about her that didn't mesh with me. Perhaps it's like when some people become best friends while others stay acquaintances. Stella is like an acquaintance to me. Stella is written as a smart and strong woman determined to make it on her own. Yet she begins to realize she has feelings for the two men and strives to do something about it. The three are wonderful together and it was nice to see them all fight for their love.

Clay, the other man staying at the ranch with Dominick and Tyler, is the one that really made an impression with me. He does a wonderful thing that not only helps Stella but also helps him deal with some of his pain from the past. He is a strong man who fights for those that he cares about and I hope that he gets his story told.

Not only do we get to see the romance between the three main characters but we also get a nice storyline. Stella has a job and bills she must pay and the men have lives as well. The author does a nice job of intertwining their separate lives and their romance.
