    Sexual exploration taken to new heights

    If there is one thing you can rely on, it's that Cara Mckenna will push the boundaries of erotica in new ways that readers will either love or hate. Lucky for me, it's usually a love affair from my end and this story is definitely one of those, with a complex and interesting plot and lots and lots of hot sex. Samira and Mike are happily married, and exploring a kink that Mike eventually broke down and told his wife about when his actions threatened their marriage. I learned a lot in this book about cuckolding, the situation where a man gets sexually excited by the thought of his partner being in a sexual relationship with someone else and himself being made to feel inadequate and humiliated by his unmanliness, before reclaiming his partner in a show of dominance. At first they enact this kink via fantasy only, with Samira inventing elaborate scenarios that she's involved with other men because Mike isn't enough to satisfy her. Eventually they invite a third person, Bern, into the mix. Bern has his own fantasy, that of being watched and the idea of being with another woman while her husband is a voyeur is too good to pass up, especially with the reassurance that everything will be consensual and private between the three of them. As they three of them explore, Samira finds herself fascinated with the dynamic of being with two men, something she never knew she wanted but now has discovered as her own kink. It's not a menage story though - the two men involved do not share an attraction or any affection for each other, in fact quite the opposite. It's a three way relationship that explores three types of sexual preferences, in a daring and explicit way. I have to say that I really enjoyed this story. Besides exploring Mike's kink (and to a lesser degree Bern and Samira's as well), it's an interesting treatise on what constitutes cheating in a marriage. If you have a couple committed and in love with each other, and they choose to invite a third person in, then the definition of what is cheating must be well defined, because while in a normal monogamous relationship cheating would imply a sexual relationship with a third party, that's not the case here. The sex is expected with the third person. In this case, it's the development of an emotional connection with someone else that is going to cause the problem, and that's what happens here, when Samira and Bern begin to find themselves becoming more than just sexually attracted to each other. There lies the conflict then, when a permitted sexual relationship goes beyond those boundaries and starts to involve real feelings and emotions. Mike's kink therefore leads to forbidden territory, but not the way he expected. There is a lot of sex in this story - if the characters aren't having it, then they are thinking about it, talking about it, texting about it, and generally from the start to the finish of the story, the sexual tension never lets up as you wonder how this can possibly work out and have a happy ending. Someone is bound to get hurt. But rest assured, it is still a romance (if not in the traditional sense) and there is a satisfactory conclusion for everyone. I can't wait to see what this author will come up with next! There is a reason she is an auto-buy for me, and part of that is that she's willing to go where a lot of other authors won't in exploring human sexuality and all that comes with it. 4.5 stars.

    Erotic Pleasure

    Couldn't put this book down, ultimate page turner. LOVE that there is lots, and lots of sex throughout the entire book. Pushing boundaries that each character didn't even know they wanted and desired. Very well written. Can't wait for the next book in this series. Absolutely LOVED this book and each of the characters.

    Crosstown Crush

    Well written with tons of emotional tension in this erotic romance. Mike's kink of cuckoldry with his wife Samira suits them both fine. They agree to add a third person, Bern, who is into exhibitionism and voyeurism, into their relationship. Worth a read if you want an excellent romance with this kink.
