Scarlet is separated from her camping party, lost deep in the northern wilderness. When she comes across what appears to be an abandoned cabin in the woods, she takes refuge for the night. Inside there are three of everything, but no sign of any occupants. Scarlet falls asleep in one of the large beds, dreaming of a knight in shining armor that she learned long ago doesn't exist.
When wild bears break in during the night, she thinks her life is over. But when she opens her eyes again she's surrounded by three of the hottest men she's ever seen. They demand to know why she's in their house, a desperate hunger in their eyes. Will Scarlet submit to their sexual appetite or return to her unfulfilling life beyond the forest?
If you go down to the woods tonight…! Remember that fairytale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears? Yes? Well forget it, this is something else entirely!
Scarlet heads off to the woods on a camping trip with a group of friends, one of whom seems to think he has a chance with her (though this never comes to anything). She is pretty indifferent about the whole trip, but it’s something to do. She’s kind of bored with her life and has no one special to share it with.
When the so-called friends come across a cute little cottage in the woods and drunkenly start to mess the place up, Scarlet pleads with them to stop, horrified that they could be doing this. Her innocent declarations however, fall on deaf ears when the owners of the cottage, three drop dead gorgeous bear shifting brothers, discover only her around.
Scarlet and the Three Bears is one seriously steamy ménage story. I liked Scarlet from the beginning, though I did find there were quite a few other characters to get to know at this point with all the friends names popping up. She is feisty, knows what she wants and stands up to her friends drunken behavior. As for the brothers, wow, great characters. Conner, Brell and Leland were all different personalities and I felt I got to know them quickly and easily. I enjoyed how the author switched points of view a few times, it made for a well-rounded read.
Did I mention the sex? There’s spanking, anal, oral, threesome fun galore. Scarlet gets to really enjoy her time with the brothers, and then, when the story closes, you’re left with a nice thought of her still continuing her erotic fun with them deep in the forest somewhere.
If you enjoy a little fairytale fantasy with a meltingly hot ménage read – Scarlet and the Three Bears is a book for you.
