Newly engaged, Brie Ferguson and Jonah McCarthy submerge themselves in primal temptations, but the constant reminder of Sebastian McCarthy's absence is enough to ruin even the best orgasm.
Distracted by the mating heat, Brie feels a deep longing to be with both her mates, especially her Alpha. Discovering that Sebastian's been infected with the same debilitating virus that turned Mason Levi, a convicted murder and werepanther, into an ultimate killing machine is enough to bring her to her knees.
Brie is tormented with the knowledge that the man she loves could destroy her, but the mating heat is all consuming and leaves her with little choice. Instincts drive her to once again feel the sexual heat and connection she shares with Sebastian and Jonah.
But once she learns that Sebastian holds the answers to her past, can the truth be the missing link into freeing her soul and igniting a passion so tempting Sebastian and Jonah can't resist?
[Ménage Amour: Erotic Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, werewolves, bondage, public exhibition]
Two sexy werewolves and a female with magical powers who has all their attention make for a sexy romp.
Jonah and Sebastian are werewolves in love and lust with the same female. Brie Ferguson is that female. She feels deeply connected to the brothers in more ways than one. Her lust and her desire for them both is as important as the air she breathes. The brothers feel the same deep connection and find it hard when parted from her as well. Enter part of the conflict. Sebastian has gone off and left Jonah and Brie in search of Mason Levi who had tried to kill her. Brie is trying to find out what she is and what makes her different. All of this happens with her being in mating heat. Which makes everything else more complicated.
While Sebastian heads out to find Mason Levi so that he cannot get their mate, Jonah is left to guard Brie. Their connection is just as potent as the one that Brie has with her Alpha male Sebastian, but at the same time not enough. She needs them both. There are a myriad of characters and personalities within this book which at times makes it a little hard to follow. But. Each character is an intricate part of the story as a whole. I think that perhaps it is because the author has plans for more in the series and with as much information that was offered, there should bemore to the series.
I liked Jonah and Sebastian, though at times the jealousy that was displayed made me wonder if their menage would work. In the end Morgan Fox showed that it could and would. I did want to see more with the conflict of Mason Levi and I am not sure it was given enough 'play time'. I feel that part of the plot was dragged out and not completed to my satisfaction. Though in saying that, it does go back to the fact that it seems the author is working towards a sequel and perhaps will answer it then. I hope so. The satisfactory HEA (Happy Ever After) I usually look for to me is a HFN (Happy For Now), because of the loose ends. In the long run, I wanted the three main characters to be together and rooted for them and was happy when they were.
Otherwise the world that Morgan Fox built was intricate and very interesting. I found myself liking the different personalities and how they interacted with one another. Three in particular caught my eye and that would be Reyes, Dominic and the female Dr. Shaw. There is something there between them all that the author touches on. Can't wait to see it. I will be looking for more from her and hope to have all my questions answered.
Four stars for the hot lovemaking, excellent public exhibitionism and varied characters.
