Have you been reading the Masters of Menage series? As you know, I have had mixed feelings on this series as you have to suspend you disbelief one too many times. Each story has a virgin heroine and two or more heros who are also Dominant Masters. But this story threw in a Bezakistan custom of the brothers sharing one wife so none would be jealous of the other and covet their birth order.

Piper Glen has had a hard life since her parents died. She raised a younger sister while putting herself through college. She works hard and really doesn’t have a personal life. But the one thing she loves is her job as an economist and ushering in eco friendly technology. Daily she speaks with Tal, never knowing he is the King of his country. She treats him like she would treat anyone and calls him on his mistakes. Tal is captivated by her, but also running out of time. He has only a few months to find a woman to be his and his brothers concubine.

Sending Rafe and Kade to fetch her to his country, he doesn’t give any thoughts to what she wants. He intends to keep his heart out of the deal hoping to protect himself and her from anyone wanting to take over his country again. Rafe and Kade are instantly in love with Piper which was a little unbelievable, but they have to save her virginity for Talib. But now their cousin wants to upheaval the country and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

So right off I was really irritated with all the brothers for getting Piper on a plane to their country under false pretenses. Yes, there was a job to do, but they didn’t tell her that they were also making her their concubine. They basically don’t tell her anything until the country finds out. It just seemed very underhanded. Once she is their concubine, she has a month to decide if she will marry them. It ends up with a lot of sex and even a BDSM scene, but I just couldn’t feel that these three had fallen in love. And Piper does such a awesome job of taking on three men like she knew what she was doing…and she is a virgin remember?

So I suspend my disbelief of princes, menages, castles and smart women to enjoy this story of four people finding love. It’s what I call a popcorn book. It’s not for hard thinking, just for enjoyment.

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

    You’re so right. Sometimes you just have to suspend belief and go with it. This one does seem to have one of those plots.
