[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Cowboy Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, light BDSM, spanking, sex toys]
Eight years after being tossed aside by the husband who took her son away, Holly Lang finds herself caught between two lovers—the exotic and dangerous Alexei Markov and the gentle but haunted Dr. Caleb Burke.
A former hit man for the Russian mafia, Alexei has been in witness protection while he testified against the mob. Now that he is done, he will do anything to earn Holly's love.
Dr. Caleb Burke is a walking contradiction. His love for Holly is obvious, but he keeps her at a distance. Underneath his gruff demeanor is a tortured soul that only Holly can heal.
As their passions burn out of control, Alexei and Caleb discover someone is trying to kill her. The only way to discover the identity of the killer is for all three to face up to the secrets of their past and work together to fight for everything they have found in Bliss.

FOUND IN BLISS is exactly why Sophie Oak is one of the best writers in erotic romance. This book is emotionally intense with fantastic characters, a suspenseful plot, and some smokin' hot sex with two unabashedly sexy men and one very lucky woman.
This is the story of Holly, Caleb, and Alexei. Holly is the waitress at Stella's restaurant who came to Bliss after being ruthlessly tossed out by her politician husband when she didn't suit his needs any more. She's made a life for herself in the small town, but she's kept her heart guarded until now. She's caught between two lovers who are very different, but no less appealing to her. But she doesn't want to choose. She wants to have both men for keeps, but she doesn't think that she's worthy.
Dr. Caleb Burke is the town doctor who has been a bit of a mystery up to now. He's obviously gaga over Holly but every time she gets close to him, he pushes her away. But what very few people know is that underneath that sexy but taciturn bearing, he's hiding a traumatic past that has left him damaged.
Alexei is the Russian hitman whom we met in ONE TO KEEP and charmed hearts after he went against his mob brethren to save the women of Bliss. Well, he's back and he wants to stake his claim on Holly. But he wants to do it with Caleb. He knows that they can give her what she needs. However, someone has made what looks like two attempts on Holly's life, so the threesome must fight their separate pasts in order to secure their one future.
I must say that I didn't know how this was going to work when I heard who it was going to involve, but I should have known that Sophie was going to do amazing things with these characters because she always does.
I thought that Alexi was my biggest surprise in the book. He was so much more delicious than I was expecting. Caleb, yeah, I knew he had it in him, but Alexi seemed a bit dopey to me when his character was introduced. But underneath his horrible grasp of the English language, there was a sexy dominant in the bedroom and a wonderfully protective and loving partner outside of it. He was unsure of his place with Holly and Caleb, but it was obvious to anyone reading that he and his big heart were the glue that held them together.
Of course we couldn't have a Sophie Oak novel without having unbelievably hot sex. Having Alexi involved certainly turned up the heat with his erotic spankings and light bondage, but Caleb was no slouch either. And I'm sure that Holly will never look at the GYN table--or the stirrups--the same way ever again (and that's all I'm saying on that one *wink*).
We also visited the town of Bliss and revisited some of the funniest characters you'll ever read about, met some new ones--like Holly's teenage son, Nick--and had to find out who the heck was trying to kill Holly. All par for the course in Bliss.
So, obviously I loved this. FOUND IN BLISS was just perfection. I feel like Sophie Oak's writing just gets better and better, and this book is a shining example of that.
