Blurb:He didn’t know the nightly peepshow was just a naughty invitation…
Garrett knows what he’s doing can get him into trouble, but he can’t help himself. Every night, as he arrives home, the blonde across the alley gets busy with her boyfriend with the blinds open. He’s spent the past two weeks getting an eyeful and falling deep into lust.
But when Garrett sees a man in a black ski mask sneak into his sexy neighbor’s bedroom, he doesn’t know he’ll be the one captured.
Jayne has a nice life with a nice lover who sees to her every need, but she’s still drawn to the lonely man across the alley. She’s been sharing her deepest fantasies with him from afar, but is ready to up the stakes. When she talks Richard into enacting a dangerous scenario, everything works out as planned. Only Garrett’s not happy about being played. And he’s got reservations because she already has a lover and he’s not into threesomes. Guess she’ll just have to convince him otherwise.
Review: Loved the characters, loved the conflict, loved the scorching hot sex. The title and concept is often fun and flirty but there is some serious emotional conflict happening within this story. At times I found Jayne to be less than likeable, but in a weird way it added to her appeal. I didn’t want her to be perfect otherwise there wouldn’t have been room for Garrett in her life and heart. In the end this was a strangely woven together love story between Jayne, Dick and Garrett. For review of the story, I do give high praise to Ms. Devlin. Her writing leaves me breathless and her heroes are simply delicious.
*presentation is slightly lower for repeat uses of Jane/Jayne for the heroine.
On a personal note, and this is just a little venting from a romance reader.
I wish authors would leave kids, home and hearth out of ménage stories and higher kink stories. I want the fantasy and the titillation that comes from reading erotic romance. Will the three live happily ever after? Damn, I hope so because the chemistry was hot. But I don’t want to be pulled back into the real world by talking about the future and that they’ll have children and such. No, it doesn’t kill the story for me, but it does make me slightly uncomfortable.
