SUMMARY
Just who is sleeping with whom?
Bianca Castillo is tangled up in love, lust, hate, revenge, heartbreak along with the five men and four women who share her polyamorous life, Los Angeles style. They're not above wading into each other's drama, wallowing in each other's misery, offering unsolicited advice or swapping romantic partners. The sex is hot, the lust hotter and the jealousy scathing in this tale of personal evolution where everyone has a stake in who ends up sleeping with whom and everyone wants to know who the mysterious stranger is that whisked Bianca away from it all. For Bishop Farrington the only question is if Bianca will leave it all behind for him. .

Jealousy is a wicked bitch, especially in the polyamorous world. Bianca Castillo enjoys sex with her men Jamison and Adrian, but they have their own primary partners, and she's often left knowing she's second best. Bianca herself never really desired her own primary, but when she meets Bishop Farrington, part of her starts to wish for more. Bishop has his own wife in Japan…she's okay with his flings, and he loves her fiercely, but she can't give him everything he needs. All of these lovers are searching for something, but will they ever find that unicorn they're searching for?

I've had mixed experiences with Ms. Harte's writing, some I absolutely adored, and some I had to put on my DNF list. This one had elements that I loved (the poly lifestyle) with elements I loathe (adolescent role playing). There's a lot of players in this book, and if you're not familiar with how polyamory works, you may find yourself out of your depth on this story. It was very emotional, lots of drama and jealousy, which didn't do much for me this time. My biggest personal issue with LOVERS was Toby. She and Adrian were into adolescent role playing, with her being the boy. Lines like "You want me to suck your dick, little boy?" and "Are you going to get hard for me, little boy?" I can appreciate non-gender conforming sex, but the whole kiddie thing (even though everyone is far more than legal) is something I can't stomach. That said, I did somewhat enjoy every other relationship dynamic. Overall, this wasn't my cuppa, but it certainly was interesting.

Bottom Line: Lots of OM/OW and sharing; MF, MM, FF, MMF and MFF sex; some condom use; lots of BDSM/kink/role playing/ropes; questionable sexual assault; no violence/murder.
