Favorite Quote: “Three words,” she croaked, her entire body throbbing with lingering pleasure. “Best. Ménage. Ever.”
No, it really is the best ménage ever. Tori emailed me this weekend to say she oversaw a twitter conversation talking about how hot Feeling Hot is. And then she said, “two straight dudes give each other pleasure for the heroine’s enjoyment,” and I was gone. It seriously is one of the hottest ménage scenes I’ve read. Let me back up a bit and tell you how we get there.
Jen has a stalker of an ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. He is suppose to leave the state in a few weeks for a new job, so Jen assumes after that point, he will stop harassing her. But her brother Carson is overprotective (and also a Navy SEAL) and refuses to believe she is safe with the ex lurking around. Carson is having some problems with his wife, so he can’t have Jen stay with him, so he turns to one of his good friends, and fellow SEAL Cash.
Cash is home after being deployed for six months and is hella horny. He meets Jen at a bar and tries to pick her up but they get interrupted. After losing her number by accident, he ends up in a threesome with his BFF Dylan (another SEAL! Good lord..SEAL overload) and a random woman. While Cash has fun, he can’t get his mind off of Jen (at this point he doesn’t know Jen is Carson’s sister). Then he gets a phone call from Carson who tells him that his sister is going to move in with him for three weeks and he will keep her safe at all costs. Oh and Cash isn’t allowed to sleep with her. Then Jen shows up, Cash realizes who she really is (girl from the bar) and the thought of not sleeping with her is pretty agonizing. Especially when Jen seduces him with everything she has.
The set-up of Jen being forced to live with Cash for a few weeks is a little silly but honestly, I loved the style of writing so much and the sex is so hot, I could totally overlook the forced set-up. This is my first book by Elle Kennedy and damn it. How is this book seven in this series filled with very erotic sex and alpha SEALs and I’ve never read it? Someone has failed me! I refuse to blame myself.
Anyway. Jen and Cash start having sex, even though they know her brother will be pissed. And it’s hot.
“Stop reining it in,” she clarified with a frazzled look in her eyes. “I won’t break, cowboy. So stop with the slow and gentle routine and do what I know you want to do with me.”
He hissed out a breath. “What I want to do is fuck you like a goddamn animal.”
“Good. Great. Now do it.”
And then Dylan comes over one night to watch some football and Jen blurts out her favorite fantasy is to watch two men pleasure each other. With some tequila floating through their system, Dylan finds himself on his knees in front of Cash. And Cash is all about it. I think we all need to take a moment and bow to the awesomeness of this scene.
And then, shoving his hand in Dylan’s blond hair, Cash guided that hot male mouth to his cock and settled back to enjoy his first blowjob from another man.
Yeah. It happens. And what I really like is the next day, it’s no big deal. Dylan and Cash are still best friends. There are no feelings of “I might be gay,” and the end is just a HEA with Cash and Jen. This ménage is a one time thing, but it’s memorable. They do it just for Jen’s pleasure and it didn’t feel forced or just plopped in. It felt right for them to do it, and it also felt right that it didn’t become anything more than a one-night thing.
While this is definitely an erotic book with lots of sex, besides Cash and Jen falling in love and dealing with her stalker, there is also a nice side story with Jen’s brother Carson and problems in his marriage. Jen also starts to figure out what she wants to do with her life.
This book is filled and overflowing with extremely alpha, sexy Navy SEALs. I loved it. When I finished, I went to Amazon and bought the first six of her books in this series (all in the $2-3 range – they appear to be more novella length). I’ve heard the other books in this series are similar with lots of threesomes and oh so sexy SEALs. My kindle is excited.
P.S. After I wrote this review I went back and read the first two books of this series. Heat of the Moment is a very quick (50 pg) novella featuring Garret and Shelby (and a menage with Carson. Hello!). It has a very abrupt end and as I said, super short. But book two, Heat of Passion is really good. This is Carson and Holly’s book and I really liked it.
