Christmas is over, but you never really want to let go. So I picked up a book I thought would be a good way to say good bye to the season, but it fell flat even with a good premise.

JJ is serving time after killing her abusive stepdad after finding her mother dead by his hand. A lousy defense and 10 years of parole hearings have left her rotting in prison. With over crowding in the prisons, the Canadian government needs a way to reduce population in the form of a Freedom Run. JJ signs up never thinking she will be accepted until she is and now life gets to start over.

Extremely claustrophobic, JJ is medicated for the flight out to a remote ranch where she will cook, clean and help three cowboys run an organic beef ranch. She doesn’t think being stuck on a remote ranch will help her problems with a fear of closed in spaces, but she is free on parole so she will do anything to keep that.

Brady is a former lawyer, Dan a chiropractor and Rafe a jack of all trades. They set up this remote cattle ranch and love every minute of it. Including the tons of snow that seems to be falling all the time. Brady instantly falls for JJ, but he wasn’t expecting woman. That throws a wrench in his plans. It doesn’t take long for Dan and Rafe to also fall hard for her.

So life goes pretty regularly for a bit with JJ creaming her panties over these men just looking at them. (Have I ever mentioned how I hate the word cream used like this…well I do.) They hear her masturbating in the shower and they all steal kisses from her. Within no time at all, they seem to be falling into bed with the great menage on Christmas Day.

I really wanted to love this story. It had such heart for a young woman who was really wrongly convicted. You want happiness for her, which she gets, but it all seemed very silly. In three days she puts in 3 different sized butt plugs for the grand finale. She wears them for what seems to be long lengths of time. I wanted to ask the indelicate question of when did she have time….to well…go if you get my meaning.

The story ends abruptly. Just bang. Done. The sex was kind of boring. Yeah, she gets pounded by three different cowboys, then all three at the same time, but I just couldn’t get into it. I ended up skimming to get to the end…and bang it was there like I made a wish.

So if you are looking for a menage story with a little heart, then you have it. If you are looking for a great menage story, then I would head over to Nothing Between Us for a deeper look into love in a triad.

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince.

Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • Can’t say that I’ve ever read more than a triad so this foursome thing is uncharted territory for me. The instalusty love thing (granted she’s seen a drought what with prison and all) isn’t my thing in a menage. LOL! I would have that practical thought too if the butt was plugged indefinitely.
    You crack me up. Bummer this one wasn’t the end of the season read you were looking for.

      I have read as many as 5 guys to one gal and that review never got written because…ewww…just ewww. I give her credit, she doesn’t take anything for granted after having been in prison. She jumps right in and starts cooking, cleaning and decorating for Christmas while the guys get their kisses. I just got tired of everything setting her off to having her panties creamed up. Seriously, it had me cringing each time they walked in that she would have it all running down her leg. And the butt plugs…I don’t think it is healthy to wear them as long as I suspected. And three sizes in three days. Ouch!

      Glad you liked my humor. I tried not to take everything too seriously.

      • I don’t think I could take a story seriously if I was questioning the logistics of things and I kept seeing an annoying thing to me in a book. I’ve gotten to where any kind of wet panties are suspect b/c I swear some of those girls (and guys with their hard ons) go around through 90% of the book in that state. I read a book the other day where the gal ‘bit’ or ‘licked’ her lips so much that she should have gone through a warehouse pack of chapstick. It was distracting. 😉

          Buying stock in panty companies and chapstick and no I am not being naughty…just trying to fund the blog 🙂

  • Oh lord..I find I will have to Google some of the things you spoke of. Sorry this disappointing you

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Oh, I wonder what you are Googling, lol. The story wasn’t awful, it just has that tone of voice I grow bored of. The longing and instant creaming all over the place, just had me shaking my head.

  • Oh and I had such high hopes after reading the title and seeing the cover.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      It’s not horrible, just kind of silly. I get tired of women creaming all the time and guys walking around with hard ons like they can’t go out in public.
