Review: This story had me giggling on the first page and from there I quickly fell in love with Dax and Clay. Sidney carries some baggage from her broken marriage but she’s more than ready to dump the baggage for a chance at passion with Dax and Clay. The characters are distinct and the premise for the ménage is initially flirtatious but quickly produces strong emotions. Dax and Clay were perfectly delicious. I had a good grasp of who they were, where they came from and what they needed from each other and Sidney. But there were a few stumbles along the way. At times Sidney is a bit contradictory. She’s outspoken and feisty, yet runs away. I thought her expectations from Dax and Clay at the onset were a bit unrealistic. These three hadn’t seen or spoken to each other in years, yet she expects to know they were involved. Her explanation for running away was also a bit weak. But moving over the bumps was easy because the writing is smooth and the sex is hot. A few unfortunate scenes do not spoil this tale.
