Grief counselor Lena Conley is certain Trey Berke's cagey plan to get close to his best friend, Brit Matthews, is a bad idea. Both men are stubborn, reserved, and mouthwateringly hot. Never one to turn away from someone in need, she tactically coerces Brit to talk even as she carefully chips away at Trey's hidden pain. Little does she know, the SEALs will heal her and offer a provocative passion that will steal her heart. When an op takes a grave turn, Brit is left with an injury that threatens to end his career and a memory of horrid images he can't erase. Recovering on Rescue Ranch adds to his misery...until the sexy, compassionate Lena comes along. Trey was a teenager headed for destruction when Brit dragged him to Rescue Ranch. It changed his life and cemented an unbreakable bond between them. Returning to the Team without Brit isn't an option. Neither is claiming Lena.

For hot as Hades MFM menages, look no further than the incredible Tonya Ramagos. She delivers once again in HEALING PLEASURE.
Lena Conley is beyond intrigued when Trey Berke approaches her with a plan to "pretend" date him so she can get to know his best friend, Brit Matthews. As a grief counselor, Lena is used to treating PTSD sufferers, and she sees just as many signs in Trey as he claims are in Brit. Intrigued both personally and professionally, Lena agrees to Trey's scheme, heading out to Healing Ranch where the SEALS live when they're off duty. Pleasure, TN is known for its menage relationships, and Lena can't stop thinking about being bound and submissive between the two incredibly gorgeous men that make her mouth water.
Trey was instantly captivated by Lena's wildcat ways struggling to break free of her conservative shell. Pretending to date her would have the benefit of getting close to her to date her for real, and let her get close to Brit since they always share their women. He can't wait to get her naked and bound between them, and when Brit meets the auburn-haired bombshell, he also feels it in his soul. She will be theirs, no doubt about it. None of them are interested in anything long term...until they are, and each of them knows they'll be able to heal one another.
HEALING PLEASURE is the first book in the new series Rescue Ranch by the amazing Ms. Ramagos. All of her books are incredibly awesome, and this one is no exception! Ms. Ramagos knows her way around a crazy sexy menage scene, and I never get tired of her erotic writing. I found there to be a lot of editing errors in this book however, which really surprised me, though it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the story. Lena's chemistry, particularly with Brit, was simply excellent, and the way they had an instantaneous bond really made me connect with them. Lena's connection with Trey was slightly less combustible, but still totally yummy.
It did take a while for the sex scenes to start in HEALING PLEASURE, but they were very well written and erotic when they did. I'd have loved some man on man deliciousness, but it wasn't to be. I have concerns about using sex as therapy, but in the book world of Pleasure, TN, it worked out well for the trio. I also thought that this story was missing a drama or suspense element that could've elevated this to an even better read. As it stands, I can't wait to read any and all upcoming books in this series!
