Tyler Thornton convinces her strait-laced best friend Kay Reagan to swap husbands to add some excitement to their sex lives, or in Kay's case, to show her what she's been missing. What Tyler doesn't know is the deep dark fantasy that Kay has been harboring for years.

Ever entertain the idea of being with your best friend’s husband? What if you or your best friend falls in love with the other’s husband? Two best friends explore this scenario over a weekend in a sexy romp that could destroy their lifelong friendship.

Tyler Thornton and Kay Reagan have been best friends since they were very young. They are both experiencing boredom in their love life and are looking to spice things up. Tyler has been toying with the idea of suggesting to her husband, Will, that they go swinging. Ideally, swinging with their best friends Kay and her husband Ed. When Tyler approaches Kay about this, Kay is at first apprehensive, then intrigued. Together, the two best friends hatch a plan to work their husbands into the swinging scenario.

Will the best friends succeed in spicing up their love life without sacrificing their friendship? The answer comes during a sensual weekend at the Thornton house where the Reagans are sleeping over. This was a short, but satisfying story about two couples expanding their sexual horizons. Ms. Droney has everyone get down to business quickly so that the story does not waste time on unnecessary distractions.

While this was a really nice short story, some details in the novella made it feel dated beyond the setting. Specifically, some of the furniture described didn't seem to go the very modern idea of swapping. Also, I want the characters names, particularly the main characters, to match the period. It was distracting and temporarily pulled me from the action. While this was a problem for me, it might not be an issue for other readers. This story presents the intriguing situation of what could possibly happen when close friends who want to liven things up.

Weekend Swap is a story that lives up to its title, giving the reader a glimpse into the swinging lifestyle. If you are looking for a quick and satisfying sizzling read, Weekend Swap would fulfill your needs.
