This erotic novella had a very cute premise—Rebecca, an erotic romance author, has decided that her next book is going to be about a ménage a trois. She's never done one of those before, so she sets out to find two men to be her willing partners to give her the hands on experience she desires to write her book.

She goes to a club and meets Kevin. He's sexy, Rebecca likes him, and he's more than welling to help her "research". However, he's only one man and she needs two. So, doesn't she hit the jackpot when Kevin's incredibly handsome roommate, Vince, joins in on the fun?

I was intrigued by the description of the book because I always wonder what exactly is done in the name of research for writing a book, especially the spicy ones. The sexual scenes in the book were very hot and steamy. The excitement that Rebecca had was palpable. Vince and Kevin were pretty much every woman's fantasy, and they lavished all of their attention on Rebecca.

The relationship moved fast, but I'm a bit of a sucker for love at first sight, so I was rooting for the men to be able to win Rebecca over and keep her with them forever. And the way they got her to stay with them was extremely romantic.

The language and dialogue used at times seemed to be a bit unrealistic for me. The use of flowery euphemisms for woman's body parts didn't seem to be in line with the rest of the story, especially when the more common terms were used repeatedly throughout the story.

Also, I was a bit taken aback when during an anal intercourse scene, the heroine is in a lot of pain, but she said that it would be "her secret". That totally ripped me out of the story. The first anal sex experience is not the time to be timid with your lover, and there was nothing romantic about that for me.

Overall, this story did have some great features--a unique premise, hot sex, and romantic men, but it was a bit of miss for me since I was taken out of the fantasy a few times. However, I hope to give this author another try soon.
