She's taking two bites out of the Big Apple.
New York, Book 1
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…
Warning: This book contains m/f/m ménage, bdsm play, lots of steamy p.d.a, and a fine dining experience that will leave you salivating for more.

I always love the ménage relationships and watching them come to fruition.
Let me set it up for you. Riley is an innocent (of course) transplant from Washington State. Having lived with her parents for most of her 24 years, she hasn't had much room to explore her sexuality beyond the 3 boring men she has had sex with. On her first night in "The City", she ventures out to experience the night life and went home with a little more than she bargained for...
Enter hot, sexy AND rich Dom x 2...Cade and Trevor are BFFs and have shared every woman they have ever dated since college. The are dominant to the "nth" degree. They have a whole list of their expectations of her as their submissive girlfriend and she is (shockingly) willing to comply. I did feel my blood boil on occasion when that dominant side surfaced, but then they would reward her greatly and pretty much treat her like a total princess around the clock. I could live with that...
What erotic romance would be complete without a mystery and a little suspense? This one is lacking neither. I am interested to see what Lainey Reese comes out with next. This is the only book I can find by this author--looking forward to seeing what she brings in the future.

In A Table for Three, Ms. Reese scorched me with these amazingly hot sex scenes almost right from the beginning. I couldn't put the book down (and even brought it with me when I sat on the edge of the pool to cool down!). The suspenseful storyline also helped set it apart from other erotica and added substance to the story. Strong character development linked me immediately to the characters that I came to adore as genuinely good people. And I very much became absorbed in their intricate ménage relationship. It might not be for everyone but this steamy ménage was a perfectly indulgent vacation read that inspired just a bit of fantasizing. ;)
Heroine Riley is sweetly naïve, courageous, adventurous and genuine. On her first night in New York City, she visits a nightclub and finds her attraction to the owner Cade Marshall is instant, mind-blowing - and mutual. When she learns he's a Dom who will require her complete surrender, even when it comes to submitting to his best friend, Trevor Wellington, she embraces the sexual adventure. And speaking of sexual adventure, my favorite scene happens in a restaurant where I am still hoping the floors were well cleaned.
Now, Cade and Trevor – oh my! - have shared everything, including women, from their earliest days as childhood friends. Cade and Trevor balance one another with strong personalities blending so well it was difficult to imagine them separate. Ms. Reese creates such a deep connection between them that it just seems absolutely natural. And after they spend that first night with Riley, they both recognize that she is the perfect woman to complete them. Like all erotica, the relationship develops too fast but I was too swept up into the story to mind it.
As Cade and Trevor begin their relationship with Riley, she's sheltered, pampered and protected. At first resistant to the restrictions, Riley shows her strength and determination by offering a compromise with the men who most certainly are not accustomed to compromising. She develops very separate relationships with each man and their personalities come out as the author explores these men's characters beyond the bedroom. Their interactions create solid connections between each character.
And the suspense ratchets up the conflict when someone targets their relationship, attempting to eliminate Riley from the equation. Despite their protective measures, danger still finds her; and Cade and Trevor realize they cannot cope with losing her. Their love for her shows through in some intense scenes as they are confronted with her mortality and it is a most beautiful thing.

I just wanted to say I LOVED A Table for Three... Cade and Trevor are YUMMY!!!!
On Riley Ramirez's first night in New York City, she asks a cabbie to take her to a nightclub. Nightclub owner Kincade "Cade" Marshall spots Riley in his club and immediately heads across the floor to her.
From the moment Riley and Cade meets, the attraction is electric. Normally conservative Riley feeds off of and submits to Cade's natural dominance. This leads to a hot encounter that is so fun to read. When Cade invites best friend, Trevor Wellington, over the book gets even hotter. Trevor takes to calling her "little one" which is so cute and endearing.
While Trevor and Cade have shared many women together, and communicate with just looks both men quickly sense Riley is different and they work hard to show her that she's the one for them.
The plot then begins to thicken as it appears someone wants Riley gone, permanently.
I loved for Cade and Trevor placed off of each other; each trust fund "men" who have found a way to make their own way in life and so sure that Riley is the one to complete their lives.
Riley only gives the proposition of sharing both men a fleeting worried glance, then jumps into obeying both men with her usual fevered gusto. As she's a seemingly naïve young woman from a small town, one would think she'd be more horrified by the sexual exploits of not only the New York club, but of Cade and Trevor in particular. As it is, her acceptance of them not only made sense but made her the perfect match for them.
The men's reactions to the threats on Riley are powerful, you can sense their love for her; even the nurse in the hospital feels it.
The author weave a cousin in, a police officer who I assume the next book will be about... I love when Cade and Trevor say "were don't share" when he is admiring Riley and she seems a bit unnerved. Its as if they see themselves as one.
Ms Reese did an OUTSTANDING job at the end wrapping up the story; I have read a few menage stories and most just have to assume the HEA. Lainey's spells out HOW they made the arrangement work, including what other family members reaction; I truly enjoyed that!!
