Survival…that’s all Julia was hoping for when she set off alone. The EMP left nothing working and civilization crumbled rapidly. Her plan to flee to safety failed and she lay dying when Arden found her. He brought her home and saved her life. Julia had no choice but to wait out the winter with sweet, sexy Arden and his seductive best friend, Ben. She tried to ignore the sexual tension and constant temptation of living with the men, but eventually she gave in to each man’s seduction. When both men came to the realization that they were in love with Julia, their lifelong friendship prevented them from competing for her. So, a deal was struck between them. She would accept and love them together, or not at all.

When I was contacted by Sylvia Ryanfor a review request I thought, cool a smut book, I’ll give it a try. But I was surprised that Saved by One, Shared by Two had some backbone.

After Arden finds Julia close to his farm near death he takes her in to care for her. Which anyone that has read a romance book can see that the two will start having feelings for each other.

But what I really enjoyed was the plot about how the US is plagued with an end of the world situation when an electronic pulse hits taking out everything electronic. No water, lights, heat, cars, etc. That’s why Julia was near death when Adren found her. She, like many others, was running to a save place and hiding from raiders that was killing people for their food and weapons.

Once Julia is back on her feet the attraction between her and Arden starts heating up. Then enters Ben, Arden’s best friend, who is returning home to the farm next door when he sees Julia and starts lusting after her too.

Saved by One, Shared by Two has a great mix of action, suspense, romance and smuttiness. There is so much love and lose in this book that I was on an emotional roller coaster. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a great story with their smut.

About Sylvia Ryan

Sylvia Ryan lives the life of an ordinary wife, mother and professional existing in Midwest Suburbia. She reads voraciously and loves to lose herself and fall head-over-heels for the alpha males in the novels she reads. When she gets the chance to shed the prim and proper persona of average wife and mother, her secret identity, Sylvia Ryan, emerges. This alter ego strives to write original ideas in extraordinary settings for her readers to remember long after the book has been read. Her dream is to transform her racy thoughts and naughty nature into tangible works of erotic fantasy for others’ secret identities to enjoy.

Ryan is the author of five novels, including Being Amber, Being Sapphire, and the soon-to-be-released Being Emerald of the New Atlanta series.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
