Product Description

It was a chance meeting
That changed everything

Before only one man loved me
Now two do

One is my husband
The other a lover

I didn’t cheat
We had a threesome

But the problem was what followed
My lover wanted more than one night

My husband got angry
My lover got dirty

And I got overwhelmed

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the balance of fantasy and reality! 22 May 2014
By Anna E. Stonefield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Tom and Kelly were high school sweethearts and he was her first and only love. Flash forward 20 years when daily life and raising two kids has taken its toll. Tom and his business partner struggle to keep their construction company afloat while Kelly toils away trying to make it as a writer. Wanting to add a spark to their sex life Tom convinces Kelly to try a couple local sex clubs. Enter Eric.

A few years their senior and very handsome, Kelly is immediately attracted to him at the club and she and Tom engage in a ménage with Eric. Chaos ensues when Eric wants more than just one night, preferably without Tom around.

Overwhelmed was thought provoking and unsettling as I saw a lot of my own marriage in Tom and Kelly's. Kids, laundry, work all slip to the forefront and make us take our partners for granted. We think of familiarity as boring and sometimes lose focus of what is really important. We try to placate our spouse often at the expense of ourselves.

Every long married person has thought about a ménage or partner swap at some point. Just as Kelly ponders early in the book, she enjoys attractive men and her husband looks at beautiful women. It's only natural to wonder, what if. Obviously, there is some dramatic liberties taken with Eric's immediate strong feelings for Kelly. However, I loved that Tom and Kelly had doubts and insecurities not easily dismissed after the experience. This event altered their relationship and they continued to slide down that slippery slope. The author handled this realistic problem beautifully!

At times this book made me grin, others it was like a train wreck or car accident you just couldn't look away from. And the sex scenes. Holy David Gandy, the sex scenes were fantastic!

Definitely another wonderful offering from this author! I am shamelessly addicted to her wildly over the top My Masters Nightmare series and so glad I found her. I can't wait to see how this ends, so many possibilities!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some things you can never come back from - spoilers 9 June 2014
By Justirishgirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
SPOILERS: I can understand wanting to do different things with your sex life after being together for so long. I have been happily married 23 years and am more then willing to try new things to spice things up. However, once some things happen, the damage cannot be undone and frequently sex with other people whether it be as a group or one on one is one of those things.

It was sad to me that Kelly, h, and Tom, H, who were happily married for 20 years, damaged it by doing threesome and foursomes. I thought it was totally out of character that Tom would suggest group sex. Tom was possessive, in love and attracted to Kelly and showed little interest in other women. Also Tom was upset when Kelly doing it with Eric as she was when Tom was getting physical with another woman. More importantly cheating was one thing he would not tolerate in his marriage, it was a deal breaker. To me, it is not a far leap from having sex with another person, in the same house and with the consent of your spouse to having sex with the same person when you are not in the same house as your spouse, without his or her knowledge. It is not unexpected and there should be no surprise if it occurs. Once that initial line is crossed the next one is much easier to do.

Regarding Eric the one who participated in the group sex, while I found him distasteful from the beginning, I thought him going off the rails so quickly and attempting what he did, was out of character and unlikely that he was that way.

Even though I did not agree with the characters' behavior and felt sad after reading the book, I gave the author 4 stars because other than having a few noticeable grammar mistakes, she did a good job. The book kept my attention, was a good length and worth the money I paid for it.

The book ends in a HFN with trouble on the horizon for Tom and Kelly. Nothing at this point can make me feel better by reading the second book other than Tom and Kelly never sleeping with other people again, getting marriage counseling and showing me that they are still happily married 10 years from now. It is very unlikely that will happen and therefore I will not be reading the second book. However, I am willing to try other books by the author because IMO she is a good writer.
4.0 out of 5 stars Not just a normal one dimensional love triangle 14 February 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not generally a fan of this sort of story, honestly. However I thought I would give this a go. (I have enjoyed Marita's work in the past) Then, I could not put this book down.

At times all the characters annoyed me, Kelly would have me applauding her strength, then have me shaking me head for something I thought was her being naive. The characters have depth and thou I never fell in love with any of them, they told a good yarn. Tom and Eric get a bit of time with their own POV which is enlightening. You got more of an idea exactly what was going through their minds, bringing the story to life that little bit more.

This is a love triangle, with lots of sex, but also lots of story. (This is not a one dimensional story) How far would you go to make someone you love happy? How far outside your comfort zone would you go? Only for it not to work out the way you planned and become complicated? What happens when love and lust get confused?

If this is a genre you enjoy and you haven't given Marita A. Hansen a go yet. Pick this book up, give yourself a chance to fall in love with her writing. You won't regret it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read!!!! 19 July 2014

I loved this book. We are not talking young adults we are talking grown men and women with kids like me yes. Thank you Marita for acknowledging that we read and can be the theme for an excellent story. Life does not begin and end at twenty it continues until its done with ups and downs along the way. I was captured by this story they were high school sweet hearts trying to spice up their lives/relationship/ sex life and wow did they ever. They thought this was what they wanted but was it. Communication is key and being honest with each other paramount and they discovered that big time. This is not a happily ever after as of yet though. More drama lies ahead for the next book. There is never any doubt about the love that Tom and Kelly have for one another but in relationships we get in to routines and become so comfortable that we can take each other for granted and sometimes we need to come back to the reason we fell in love.

I have read this book and behind the tears and behind the lens. She is fantastic! As an American, I find her characters intriguing and so easy to fall in love with. I can't wait for the next book in this series. Everyone should give this author a read.
