Blurb: Joely has just moved back home and has no job prospects, no man prospects. And she has to be bridesmaid in her younger sister's wedding to Joely's old boyfriend! Alcohol seems the perfect distraction to see her through the reception. Maybe she can slip up to her hotel room after and have sex with one of the groomsmen. Comforting herself with a sweet but deadly bar concoction called Death by Sex, she thinks her toughest decision will be which man to sleep with.Tucker and Beck were her best friends during their college years, but she hasn't seen them since graduation. It isn't just the alcohol burning inside that entices her into a wild, carnal night with both men. Memories awaken her to buried emotions and the security Tuck and Beck bring. She loves them equally, and could never choose between them. The guys have a plan of their own, however, and are determined to see it through.

Review: Getting drunk has never been my idea of fun—I’ve changed my mind. Get me a drink and two hot studs to go along with it. Initially, I was turned off because Joely consumed a large quantity of alcohol in order to drop her inhibitions and go with Tucker and Beck for sex. In the time it took to go from the wedding reception to the hotel room (same building), she’d miraculously lost the slurred speech and fuzzy effects of being drunk. So when it actually comes time to strip and get wild, both she and her two hot men are cognizant of the choice they’re making. (Although, you have to overlook that alcohol does not burn out of ones system because you will it to.) I have happily overlooked that and enjoyed the story. Now since I can’t sample Tucker and Beck for myself, I have to sample Death by Sex. I found the recipe and am sharing it with you. So mix yourself a drink, pick up your copy of Death by Sex, get drunk and get horny! Because this book is everything you expect from an EC Quickie. Hot sex and more hot sex!

Thanks for reading my story! I agree, I should have made it more clear how much Joely had to drink, and should have made it appear less than I did. I'm glad you looked past that and were able to enjoy the sex, er, story! Let me know if you'd like to review either of my other two stories.
