“I have a thing for a good romantic suspense and Lexi Blake mixes that with some pretty hot sex!”
~ Under the Covers

I’m not sure why I have been slacking on this series, I remember buying this ebook as soon as it came out!  I have a thing for a good romantic suspense and Lexi Blake mixes that with some pretty hot sex!  What could be better?  Nevertheless, here I am, a million books behind this series and getting excited all over again to go back in.

THE MEN WITH THE GOLDEN CUFFS as you would expect by the name is a permanent menage story.  In this case this works well because Adam and Jacob are already a unit.  Not together themselves, but they’ve always shared their women and have a common goal in mind.  To find the one woman they can both love and that can complement their relationship.

They work as a team for McKay-Taggert security and they end up taking a case of an author who needs protection from some pretty serious threats.  The mystery of who is behind that (or is this all a PR plot fabricated by the author herself) is still a nagging issue for the men, but on the forefront is the fact they both think she is the perfect submissive for them.

Serena writes about BDSM and submission, but she hasn’t lived it herself.  Her ex-husband always put her down for her books and she hasn’t given in to her true nature and admitted these are things she wants for herself, not just her characters.  This is where I struggled.  Serena herself.  I wasn’t sold on her completely, she’s not the most assertive character and she might’ve gotten on my nerves a bit.

Adam and Jacob on the other hand were a perfect complement to each other in their roles of this menage.  One is the strict and serious Dom, the other the more caring and sweet.  But both are equally pushy and decisive when it comes to getting in Serena’s bed.

A snake, some bad letters and a dead body later we get our resolution.  I have to say it wasn’t the most complicated mystery to uncover and I had this plot figured out pretty fast, although I did have some minor surprises in the end.

All in all, this was quite an enjoyable read and it reminds me that I love to read this type of erotic romance, with a bit of an edge.  Even though I can’t say they were my favorite characters I do find that I enjoy their agency enough to want all those sexy men to see an HEA.  I can’t wait to delve more into the series as I’ve heard the books get better as we go forward.

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 think this is better than The Dom Who Loved Me but maybe if you didn’t enjoy that then this might not be necessarily for you.

I think that this is the first book that we didn’t see eye to eye on. This is one of my faves and the first menage that I thought was believable emotionally. A lot of the ones I have read are sexy but never quite gripped me on an emotional level. I had actually given up on them until I read this book, and I only read it because it was Lexi Blake and next in the series. I fell hard and am super picky about my trios ever since. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. I love you,… Read more »

Awwww there has to be that one right? I think my issues come more from Serena as a character than the actual menage. I think the menage was done very well. Although I still hold LAID BARE by Lauren Dane as one of my favorite menages, I’m a sucker for those Brown Siblings, what can I say. xoxoxoxoxoxo
