Release Date: November 3, 2015
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Angelina Flores lived a perfect ranch-kid childhood, complete with three princes on horseback who treated their housekeeper’s daughter like a princess. At age eighteen, the fairytale came crashing down when she realized she had to choose between Brand, Nate and Eli McAffee.
And when she did choose one—she lost all three.
She’s older now. Wiser, thanks to her college education and a few years’ distance. A distance she’d planned to maintain…until her mother begs her to fill in at the ranch while she takes care of a sick relative.
The minute her boots hit the front porch, the memories come flooding back, right along with the hunger. It’s tough to put the past behind her when temptation is so close. Especially since the brothers seem bound and determined to woo her. Separately. Together. Whatever it takes to keep her right where she belongs—in their arms.
My Review: This short novella was ridiculous and sexy, and I mean that in the best of ways! One woman and three gorgeous men? Hell, I can definitely see the appeal! And the erotica was definitely well written.
Angelina is back home after four years, when she was sent away after making a serious mistake: she slept with one of the McAffee brothers. Her mother has been their housekeeper since she was a child, so she grew up around the three brothers… and grow up she did! She’s gorgeous, they’re hot, BAM, instant attraction.
You have to suspend your belief a bit when reading this. I mean, a polyamorous relationship in small town Texas, where being poly is miraculously considered acceptable? Hmmmm, okay.
There were a few issues I struggled with, and sometimes the language got a bit hokey for me (“her feminine core”?), but the novel is short and hot and a heck of a lot of fun! I love poly relationships, and while I’m not so sure about the McAffee brothers, I think Angelina is a pretty lucky woman to have scored three men who love her and want only her happiness!
A short, fun read, with an interesting twist on the conventional ranch romance trope!
