3 Stars


Released: May 23, 2011
Series: Harmless #3.5
Pages: 54

I haven’t read this series, so I wasn’t familiar with the hero and heroine, May and Evan, but they’ve recently tied the knot and Evan has a little surprise for his wife.  He will give her the fantasy she’s always had FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY.  So he brings in Rome to be a third.  And of course, not just will she get a menage, but these guys are both Doms.

So the setup was great, especially for a hot short story.  I liked the characters individually a lot, there was a lot of build up and then…it didn’t blow me away.  I don’t know if I would’ve felt different having read the previous book, however I don’t think it was a connection problem for me.  It was just that the sex scenes were just ok.

In a short story of only 54 pages centering around Doms and sex I guess I had higher expectations from it.  Evan and Rome were just ok at it. *shrugs*

Nonetheless, I will go back and read the rest of the series and get to know the Harmless characters.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I have this, but haven’t read yet. I have another one on my Kindle I’ve been trying to finish and since it’s a later one as well, I feel like I’m missing something, but I like what I’ve read enough to go back when I get some time.

Anticipating and expectation built up for a good story and then to have it fall flat- yikes!

I haven’t read this series yet, but I’ve heard good things about Melissa Schroeder.

Thanks for sharing your review!
