Professional life in the City of London is tough going which is why my husband Gabe and I live by the motto work hard and play hard. So when something, or rather someone, comes along that changes how he wants to play I'm intrigued by our sexy new game.

But there's always private sides to the ones you love, and in this case new thoughts and desires are stealing Gabe's dreams. It's not until I meet Brent—gorgeous and sophisticated yet soul-achingly alone—that I begin to understand the complex layers of Gabe's needs and exactly what I have to do.

But I'm not afraid; in fact the idea of two men turns me the hell on. In a whirlwind of romance, fear, desire and a new cresting wave of passion we open up to each other, testing the water for one weekend only. Or is it? Will we ever be the same again? Can Gabe and I survive our decision to let a third into our bed? Can Brent just walk away and, more importantly, will we let him?

Would you be down with your guy exploring his attraction to another man? THE SILK TIE puts out that question and more in a super decadent read that will have you panting for more.

Attorneys Gabe and Hayley Stone have been married for ten wonderful years, and somehow their union just keeps getting hotter as the years go by. Gabe adores his wife and the sexy, kinky games they play, so he's terribly confused as to why his mind and body are reacting to his good-looking client, his very bisexual MALE client, Brent Dawson. Hayley starts to sense that things are changing with Gabe, and she's more than willing...and give him whatever he needs, in and out of the bedroom.

Things get erotic when the three of them agree to a weekend of exploration between Gabe and Brent, but none of them anticipated the desire to make it more than just a few days of fun. Feelings are growing between the men, and both Hayley and Brent want more than to just be a voyeur. Hayley is convinced that the three of them could live blissfully ever after as a permanent long as all three of them are on equal footing.

THE SILK TIE is one seriously sexy MMF ménage read from beginning to end! For some reason Ms. Harlem's writing evoked some belly butterflies in me, maybe because Gabe and Brent's growing relationship felt like emotional cheating to me, even though Hayley was all full steam ahead. At a few points in this book, Hayley makes comments on her skill as an attorney reading facial expressions and ferreting out information, but she sure was slow on the uptake regarding Gabe's desire for Brent! That said, she was an interesting character, the catalyst for Gabe and Brent's sexperiences as well as the glue that held them all together.

Brent was amazing--sweet and passionate and concerned about everyone involved. I thought his desire for the encounters to include everyone was brilliant and it turned my butterflies into arousal almost immediately. Brent seemed rather selfish to me, but then again, I find that most book boyfriends have an air of selfishness about them for one thing or another. The sex was primarily MF and MM, but toward the end we got some incredibly raw and wicked MMF action that is NOT suitable for consuming in public! I definitely needed a cold shower after those scenes. Man, Ms. Harlem gives good sex!

This is a fabulous read and one that will be included on my very short re-read list for future enjoyment.
