SUMMARY
Georgie knew that hooking up with her ex would bring complications. For one, Anthony is trying to help her out by getting her a job with his latest boyfriend, Etienne. For another, he's hinting that he and Etienne might want her to join them the next time they get together to play. It isn't long before Anthony's suggestion ignites a bit of after-hours fun between the boss and his new employee, and Georgie finds herself enjoying the attention of two gorgeous men at the same time. And it doesn't stop there.

But it can't be multiple orgasms all the time for Georgie, not when one of her boyfriends decides he's not happy, making everyone unhappy. The high of being a part of a scorching threesome wears off, leaving Georgie fighting to keep the perfect relationship intact.

Twice the boyfriend. Twice the fun. More trouble than she ever imagined.

OUT OF THE BLUE will have you laughing out loud. I didn't think I was going to like Georgie at first, kind of felt like she was poaching, but as soon as I met her fish Mercutio, I knew she was my kind of girl. How can you not like someone who defends her mutant black gold fish like a mama bear defending her cub?

Georgie is going through a rough time, she has to move out of her apartment and move into her friend's basement because she can't pay the rent, she was just let go at her temp job and it has seriously been too long since she was laid.

Anthony, playboy extraordinaire, and sometimes Georgie's fuck-buddy, seems to be in a long-term relationship. But this doesn't stop the two from hooking up one night after running into each other while Georgie is out at her friend Tera's hen party.

Etienne, protector of troubled teens, is the current boyfriend of Anthony, and he is looking for an assistant. Georgie is looking for a job but can she work for the man that is currently sexing up her "with benefits" friend? The answer is yes, because she is just that desperate. But it doesn't happen without some interesting negotiations.

When a more than working relationship develops between Georgie and Etienne, Anthony couldn't be more thrilled. He has been hoping to find a way to add Georgie to his relationship with Etienne and knew that Etienne was more than agreeable. But the phrase "Careful what you wish for, you just might get it" could be their theme song.

This book was a little slow to start for me and it took me a while to warm up to the characters. Georgie, in the beginning really comes across as a flighty slut, Anthony as a commitment phobic playboy and Etienne as blah. But once I got into the story I was fully committed to their roller coaster ride. There is a lot of fun, snarky dialogue which is something that when done right makes a book for me. The secondary characters of Tera and her husband and daughter helped to round out the story line and again added some humor and realism.

I felt this book read very true in its depiction of making a ménage work, and dealt with some very real emotions when it doesn't. The humor helped what could have been a very heavy emotional book turn into a great relationship read. If you are looking for a book that will make you feel a lot of different emotions, OUT OF THE BLUE is a book that you will want to add to your library.
