Series: Member’s Only Series Book#1
Author: Jennifer Kacey
Blurb: She knows it’s wrong. Cyn shouldn’t have feelings for fraternal twins Jared and Chris, her best friends. She shouldn’t want them to tie her up or strap her down, to take her one at a time—or together. The only way to control her taboo desires is to write them down and lock them away in her diary. Guys like Jared and Chris could never be interested in someone like her, or in the kind of sex she craves.
But Jared and Chris have read her diary, and sweet little Cyn is in for the shock of her life. The brothers not only own a members-only BDSM club, they want her. Need her. And now, with their unlimited funds and an entire establishment devoted to fulfilling her darkest pleasures, they’re going to claim Cyn for their own.
Inside Scoop: If you have a kink, this book probably has it too. If you like your ménage romances extra hot with a side of male-male romance, spanking, voyeurism and girl-on-girl action, come and get it.
Thoughts: First off, I’ll tell you this book is scorching hot! If your into erotica, this book has a touch of everything: BDSM, a M/M scene (NOT the two male leads…cause that would be just…eeew!…considering they are brothers), a mild F/F scene (our female lead explores her bi-curious side), and lots of ménage. This book gets down and dirty – the ultimate illicit read….but it also has character, and a compelling storyline. From page one I was hooked and couldn’t put it down.
When the book starts off, we have the boys pushing Cyn’s buttons – at this point they have already found and read her diary of steamy fantasies – and they now realize how ready she is to take both of them on! I would have liked to see a glimpse of how things were before they read the diary myself, as well as get their first reactions when they read some of those scenes. But I loved how the teased and tempted her in the very beginning – and how they teased her about hearing her with her vibrator through the paper thin walls! Let’s just face it…this book starts out steamy and doesn’t let up! But the boys have heart…and the further the book progresses, the more you realize that they have always loved Cyn as more than just friends. And their relationship has so much caring and support for each other that it touches your heart. They treasure her, and she treasures them in return.
I liked that the BDSM club was just called simply ‘The Library’…how deceptively simple! And that the membership cards were styled like library cards…just brilliant! There were some great side characters as well that helped pull the book together. The one that really stood out for me was Jenna…I mean, WOW! She really did a great supporting job in this book…and you could actually feel the sparks between her and Cyn – which for me is quite rare for the F/F scenes in erotica books. I was hoping the next installment would be hers, but no such luck! I can’t wait for her to have her own book! But knowing she is bound to make a few cameo appearances in the next few books will hopefully tide me over.
There are a few scenes that get a little forceful, but nothing too over the top – they mostly evolve out of some past fears that Cyn has due to events from her past. And there are a few scenes where a guy from her past comes back into the picture. So if that type of stuff makes you uncomfortable or upset, this might not be the book for you. But it is integral to the storyline, and it is well handled. And the way they all come together in the end to get past their own baggage is just beautiful and so well-written.
Basically, if erotica s your thing…you can’t really go wrong with this book.
Haleigh’s Ink is the next in the series with no specified release date as yet. But A Very Ménage Christmas is – the third installment – is due out November 13th.
