On leave for Thanksgiving, the last thing marine lieutenant Talia Barnett expects to find is Liam Brodie waiting for her at the airport. He’s had a starring role in her fantasies for the past two years, and although she’d love to make them a reality, she has a dark secret that prevents her from taking things further.

A former marine, Liam’s specialty is planning tactical operations, and that’s just what he plans to do to win Talia. The woman has kept him at arm’s length for too long, and this time he’s finally going to claim her—body and heart.

What begins as comfort quickly turns hot. When Liam shows Talia a hint of the dominant nature inside him, the submissive part of her flares to life. Though she desires him, she’s going back on deployment and doesn’t want to dump all her drama on him. Will he find a way to break through the protective walls around her heart and convince her they have a future that goes far beyond the bedroom?

My Thoughts
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

I cannot count this book as part of a series, but Liam was a character introduced during a ménage on another book from this same author. I liked him from that book, but I expected more from him in this relationship and in a way is partly Talia’s fault because I didn’t felt connected with during this short book.


I read ravishing reviews on the blogosphere about this book, but honestly the erotica part was kinda vanilla to me and the BDSM everyone was talking about was not to sexy. Liam wanted a women, but he let her escape several times during years and is mostly his fault. Talia has issues from her mother and also tries to put everyone away so not to get hurt when her relationships fail.


I just didn’t like this couple together and expected a hotter book from Liam, even if not with ménage but he could be more alpha in bed and Talia should accept more hardness from him. The book is short but good, but I prefer her first one.

Why I Started This Book:

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.


During a playful talk about fantasies, Caitlin’s fiancé offers to give her a threesome—with his best friend, Liam, who’s coming to spend the weekend. At first Cait is shocked that Nathan could entertain the thought of sharing her with another man, but once he’s planted the idea her imagination runs wild, leaving her deeply aroused—yet still unsure about what the implications could be for her and Nate’s relationship.

Nathan’s watched Cait struggle to hide her attraction to Liam for years. He knows she’s nervous, but he also knows that by making her most intimate fantasies come true he can bring her to heights of pleasure she’s only imagined, and strengthen their bond. There’s only one way to help her overcome her inhibitions—by planning a night of ecstasy she’ll never forget…

My Thoughts:

The book started with pretty powerful words, a conversation between Caitlin and her fiancè Nathan, about his desire to share her with another man. Since before their relationship Nathan has been adventurous about his sex life Caitlin started to fear he was becaming bored. 

But on the contrary Nathan is every girls dream, ex-military, pays attention to Caitlin reads and because off that realised that deep down she has fantasies about a treesome, so because off that he decided to give a little help, could he be any more perfect?

Caitlin was not a prude, and her sex life with Nathan was anything from vanilla, taking from anal sex to a light bondage, se tried a bit off everything. This treesome was really something she was thinking, but didn’t have the courage to do it. Nathan’s push was all that she needed.

I found Nathan a bit of contradiction, while he’s very dominant in bed for the rest off things he’s also light, washes dishes after dinner, put clothes on the wash hamper (sounds like the perfect men hmmm)

When Lian appear in the midlle off a steamy kisses, Nathan realises is the perfect moment to push Caitlin to face what she really wants, and boy those guys really know how to work together. They only need head nods to make a point.

I loved how Nathan handled the situation, especially Caitlin fears for the after relationship and his own jealousy, and still continous with a normal friendship. Also loved the fact that Callie put the last chapter on Nathan’s POV, so we can see that he’s also affected by their treesome, differently from the reast of the book that’s all in Caitlin. 

Hope this one has a sequel, cause Nathan found his happily ever after, but Lian still suffer to really connect with a woman on a relationship level.

Despite being a novel, I fealt better reading this book knowing they where already on a preview relationship, and tried a different thing.
