Successful business owner Ivy Chambers has no reason to doubt her love for her brilliant financier boyfriend Bodhi Monaghan—right up until the moment he disappears into the night.
Crushed and abandoned, she falls into the arms of Bodhi’s handsome best friend and surfing buddy Cooper Houston—who is more than happy to keep her warm at night.
A year later, Bodhi returns unexpectedly. He’s shocked to find Ivy and Cooper engaged, and he can’t handle it.
Will Bodhi, Cooper, or Ivy come out on top (or middle...or bottom)?
How far will they be compelled by their urges?
If you’ve read Ariella Talix’s #1 bestselling book Just Curious, you’ll be happy to hear a bit more about Willa, Jackson, and Casey again in this book. Reading their story first isn’t crucial for your enjoyment of this one.
Suitable for adult readers only. (Psst! There’s a lot of sex and some naughty language).
Please note: This is Erotic Romance rather than Erotica. It's listed under the Erotica heading because of explicit content. It's the best we can do with NetGalley's categories.
"The book is gripping and real, and Bodhi is one of the most flawed romance heroes I've ever read, while also being endearing and redeemable. Well done."

"The experience of discovering what the author has carefully created is something everybody should enjoy for themselves. I will tell you that Ariella Talix somehow managed to redeem Bodhi’s character. His behavior was so terrible I didn’t think she’d be able to do that, but I should have known better!"

"We feel the hurt and pain, as well as the love that flows between and among these three. Each has things to sort out, especially the men. An insane villain shows up, and many more problems ensue. I loved how the author keeps all these balls in the air (sorry about that!), and the plot is understandable. The villain was unique and sad but very well-written. We just have to love these three and their magnificently erotic sex life."

"Great steamy summer read! Each word sizzled off the page and I could not wait to read and see what happened..."
- Robin, BookBub recommendation
"The writing flows easily and the editing is impeccable."

"The characters were flawed and fantastic and I fell in love with them. The story gripped me immediately and kept me engrossed the entire time. I couldn't put this one down!"

Excellent. Sexy, emotional and great plot. Some real character development, heartbreak and loss as our threesome work out what they mean to each other and what the future can hold for them. Throw in a nutty ex, a bit of travel and brilliantly written sex scenes I loved reading this book through.
,What an absolutely entrancing novel. As the reader I was thoroughly entertained and it had fulfilled its purpose which was to hit the target of what an erotic novel contains within its sensual and inviting content. It should be duly noted that this novel was written with a creative and passionate narrative by an exceptionally talented author. This novel has the ability to entice you to read it just by the title. The cover is very captivating and encourages individuals who are within the erotic novel audience to engage with this novel and read it. I believe this novel has the potential to go far and to reach a wider range of individuals especially those who have just started to engage in the genre or who are just starting their journey through bdsm, kink etc. I would like to extend my best wishes for the success of this novel.
