Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel
Welcome to Steamy Saturdays, where I post a review of a book that I’ve reviewed that is on the steamier side of romance. This week is a menage story that I reviewed for The Romance Reviews.
A Bride for Two Renegades by Edith DuBois
Source: I received a copy of this book to read and review for The Romance Reviews
Forced to give up one quirky trait after another, Male Order native Sherri Winston feels lost in a sea of ordinary. It’s not until one spectacular night spent with the enigmatic Ethan Blacker that she begins to feel herself again. But he’s an agent working abroad for the UN, and the next morning Sherri must watch him go.
After weeks of pining for what cannot be, Sherri is ready to snap out of it. Little does she expect, however, that hunky film star Benji will roll into town and snatch her heart away. As the two fall in love, Sherri can’t fight the feeling that something is missing.
It‘s not until Benji and Ethan meet in an explosive, revelatory encounter that Sherri realizes only she has the power to bring her men together. As the stakes grow deadly, will love prevail? Or will past wrongs prove too bitter to overcome?
Can one real action hero, one movie action hero and an ordinary girl find love? This story brings together three people who need each other’s love to be part of cohesive group. A heart-pounding tear worthy menage!
Sherri Winston is trying to find herself. Although she grew up in Male Order, she feels out of place, and not ready to find a place for herself in the town. She has a one night stand with Ethan Blacker, who she finds out is an agent for the UN. Although the sex spectacular, Ethan gets a call in the morning and has to head out on his next mission.
Sherri thinks she’ll never see him again.
Some time later she has an unfortunate encounter with a snitty Benji – not an encounter that she cares to repeat! Repeat it she does, and this time Benji is much more civilized. She sees the good side of Benji and starts a relationship with him. Little does she know that Ethan isn’t out of her life for good and Benji and Ethan are brothers.
I found this menage to be a delightful read. It wasn’t an easy gathering of three people as is common in menage stories. Ethan and Benji have deep-seated issues to overcome before they can share a woman. The action sequences that were included about Ethan’s work added an exciting dimension to the story.
I found the story moved along at a good pace, and showed Sherri to be a capable woman strong enough to handle two men. A great read overall!
