Strap on your vibrators, girls, because this one is indescribably hot.
Danny appears to have everything. He's rich - wealthy enough that he doesn't really have to work - super good looking, and can have any woman he wants. He also has a roommate, his best friend Paul, and the two share a - um - close relationship.
Years ago, when the two were in high school, Paul was wildly in love with Eve. After graduation, she decamped from Tampa and headed to New York to pursue art school. But now, ten years later, she's back in town, dumped by her fiancé and ready to make changes in her life. When she bumps into Danny in a grocery store, he invites her for a visit.
Yes, Eve and Paul dated, but Eve and Danny have undeniable chemistry. They are attracted to each other, and when they act on that attraction, you will need to take a cold shower just to finish reading about the action.
But wait. What about Paul?
He still loves Eve, and she still loves him. But she also loves Danny, who also loves Paul. And Paul loves Danny too. So these three crazy kids ought to be happy together, right?
Well ... Paul is engaged.
Not that it stops the three from enjoying each other's company.
Boy, do they ever. To say that they are a passionate threesome is to drastically underplay what goes on between them. Danny is the puppet master of sorts, but while he presents a stark, domineering persona, we know that his heart beats tenderly and lovingly for Eve and Paul. He's a bit of a bastard, but he's likable, and we worry for him.
The story line is entertaining enough to keep us going between sex scenes. We learn about Paul and Danny's history together, and we understand - if not exactly relate to - the closeness they share with Eve. But what controls the book are the sex scenes.
Let me warn you that if Fifty Shades of Grey was too much for you, then you need to avoid this book. If you're in the mood for some screaming hot headboard rockin', then this is the one for you. Danny is a Dom, and Paul enjoys it when Danny inflicts pain, so be prepared for some fairly graphic BDSM scenes. Actually, the scenes are graphic, period. But oh so very very hot.
Don't be surprised if you require a certain release after reading those scenes, though.
