She’s taking two bites out of the Big Apple.
Riley Ramirez knew that moving to New York would change her life. She just didn’t expect it to start on her very first night in town. Her attraction to nightclub owner Kincade Marshall is instant, mind-blowing—and mutual. When she finds he is a Dom who requires her complete surrender, even when it comes to submitting to his best friend, Trevor Wellington, she finds herself willing and eager to embrace the sexual adventure.
From their earliest days, Cade and Trevor have shared everything, including women. Yet it only takes one night with Riley to know she is their forever lady. Convincing her that this is more than a temporary fling, though, will take every tool in their sensual arsenal.
As Cade and Trevor set their sights on Riley, however, they’re unaware—until it’s almost too late—that someone is targeting their fragile relationship. Someone who’s taking deadly aim at Riley. Suddenly their struggle to keep their forever woman is a fight to keep her alive…
There’s a lot that’s improbable about this story, making it more of a fantasy, and that is what made it pure pleasure for me. It’s also what I think of as BDSM lite (I am SO not an expert) because Riley, the heroine in this story, was submissive when it suited her needs.
Cade and Trevor both come from wealthy families and grew up together. They both created their own career paths outside of their families’ money and have been sharing women (openly to their families) since they became sexually active. Both are doms who have been on the lookout for the perfect submissive and Cade knew Riley was the one the moment he laid eyes on her.
The sex is certainly erotic and there is only one short scene that I even considered to be in the BDSM domain. Otherwise, it was more of a ménage romp, and lots of it.
There is a suspense element (you know from the start who’s behind the scheme) that adds a bit of spice and excitement. The erotic elements stand on their own without any need for enhancement but it was more interesting.
This is a fun fantasy with characters you like and find appealing, with enough wealth to make it all work nicely. I enjoyed it and will read the next books in this series.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
