Can a summer of sexual exploration, lead to an unconventional forever.

When his best friend moves to the area, Tyler seizes an opportunity to fulfill his wife’s fantasies while, hopefully, leading her in the direction of his.

They shared women in the past, and Connor’s the only man Tyler trusts with this special summer assignment. But when neighbors start to gossip, and the actions of strangers threaten their already precarious threesome, he worries that Angela’s uncertainties and Connor’s ex will end what could be the perfect forever.

Tyler O’Neil

Until pillow talk exposed his wife’s fantasies, Tyler had no idea some of Angela’s desires so closely matched his own. So, when he decides to enlist the help of his best friend to fulfill a few for her, he secretly hopes it will lead to his own personal desire - a permanent threesome. Tyler and Connor shared women in the past, he’s the one and only man Tyler trusts with this special summer assignment.

Connor Jones

Connor can’t believe it when he best friend asks if he would consider seducing his wife. Then he meets Angela, and all the women in his past fade away. With his friend’s blessing he sets out to seduce the man’s wife. And when Tyler joins the party, the three of them set the sheets on fire. Angela is one sexy woman, and Tyler is one lucky man. If only Connor could find a woman like her, one who would love him unconditionally.

Angela O’Neil

Angela is floored when her husband suggests they explore some of her fantasies. Sex with a stranger, phone sex, outdoor sex, threesome sex. These were things she read about, thought about, wished for, but never in her wildest dreams thought would she be able to live them. She loves her husband, but soon she finds herself falling for his best friend too. That’s not normal, is it? What will people think? Sandwiched between the two of them, she’s never felt so treasured, so protected, or so loved.

Angie sat cross-legged on the window settee. The brightness of the moon belied the late hour, pushing the shadows deep into the corners. The faint murmur of Tyler’s and Connor’s voices rose through the floorboards from the first level. She looked over at the rumpled bed sheets and then down at the journal lying open in her lap. She re-read her entry.
We did it. I actually did it. How much must Tyler love me to have granted me this particular fantasy? Who knew my husband had a kinky side? And, even though he encouraged me to play with Connor over the weekend, which…WOW…tonight was different. Very different. Tonight the man I’m committed to watched another man make love to me. He helped another man make love to me. No jealousy. No competition. Only mutual excitement, sharing and exploring.
Honestly, it was a little weird at first. But, knowing Tyler trusted Connor made me feel secure. Though I guess I should have known he’d arranged the whole thing. I just didn’t think his surprise would include his best friend.
Oh, my. I can still feel their hands and their lips gliding over my body. The way they touched me, as if I were made of spun sugar. They kissed me. First their lips soft and sensual, and then demanding, scorching, as though they couldn’t get enough. I’ve never felt so alive, so beautiful, so treasured.
Few words were spoken. Few were needed.
“Let’s tie her up.” I’ll never look at Tyler’s silk ties the same way.
“Your skin is so soft, like flower petals.”
“You smell like vanilla, but you taste like some exotic brand of honey.”
They were so in tune to each other. Their hands guided me where and how they wanted me. All I could do was moan and sigh—until the end. Sometimes they took turns, sometimes they played with me together. At times it was almost too much. Having four hands or two tongues pleasuring me…my body hummed like a tuning fork. The energy they created…oh…I could almost feel the blood rushing hot and thick through my veins.
The blindfold hid them from me, and I so wanted to watch. But, I admit, I had no difficulty telling them apart. Their bodies are similar in build, but they are different in every other way.
The only thing that could have made it better would have been to feel both men inside me at the same time. Being sandwiched between two gorgeous men…that’s something I think many women fantasize about. I imagine my body would struggle to accommodate them, but in the end they would win. I think I’d forget to breathe.
My mouth’s watering as I write this. My body tingles. Should I be ashamed of how I feel? How will Tyler react now that it’s over? Was this a one-time event? How do I tell my husband I’m counting the hours until we can do it again?
Angela paused and raised her head when the bedroom door opened, and her husband walked in, a knowing smile on his handsome face.

Nicola's Review

4 Bare Naked Stars ****                  

Tyler and Angie have been married for seven years. Although very happy in their marriage, things seem to have gotten to be a bit ‘vanilla’ in the bedroom department. After some pillow talk Tyler discovers some fantasies that Angie has coincides with his own desires. Wanting to make her happy, he enlists his best friend Connor to help out.

"You want me to do what?"

"I want you to seduce my wife."

"You're asking me to have sex with your wife, Ty."

"Yes I am. Initially, I want you to fulfil her stranger fantasy. But I'm also asking you to participate in a threesome with us."

To begin with Connor is a little apprehensive, but in the end concedes to help out his best friend and take a chance.

So while Tyler is away on a business trip, Connor makes his move. Using his carpentry as a way in, offering to help out with a few bits around the house.  Completely floored by the gorgeous stranger offering his services, Angie tries to busy herself and stay out of his way. She feels the attraction towards him, but doesn't want to act on it, she is a married woman after all. Until she speaks to her husband on the phone.

"Are you attracted to him, Angela? Silence filled the line. "Honey, you still there?" He could hear the tiny inhalations, and then a slight gasp.

"Yes. And...yes."

"Baby, I'm giving you a green light here to have some fun. I trust you. I've told you before id do anything to make your fantasies come true, sweetheart."

That one weekend will be the turning point in all of their lives.  The start of a whole new adventure for all of them.  But, what Connor didn't expect was for him to start falling in love with Angie, and vice versa.

They have plenty of obstacles to get through, but through a couple of friends who point them in the right direction and with them sticking together it will be ok, or will it?

Will they be able to go back to how things were? Will they even want to?

What will Connor and Angie do once they learn of Tyler's ulterior motive?

Well you will just have to read it and find out for yourselves.

The ending was perfect in my eyes, but I still want to read more, and can't wait for the second book to be released.

What I loved about this book was how Anne Lange didn't just focus on the positives of this type of relationship, but also the negatives. The abusing and insulting things a person could be subject to from other people who don't agree and can't accept their form of relationship.
It's downright horrible, especially when there are people who live this kind of lifestyle.

"I don't plan to flaunt our relationship, but I don't plan on hiding it either. I'm tired of hiding. If somebody asks, I'll tell them I live with two men. If they have a problem with that, they can go fuck themselves. They don't know what they're missing."

I absolutely love Angie, she's feisty and grows a lot as the book progresses. She questions what they're doing a lot throughout the book. Is this right? Is Tyler really ok with what's happening between them all? But all you see is Tyler's acceptance, happiness and love for his wife and for Connor shines through everything. There's no doubt in his mind that this is right.

 And I really wish I was her.  I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want two gorgeous men all over you. Bringing you the ultimate pleasure whenever you wanted???

I think I’ve found a new love for threesomes, ménage a trios and sammiches... Seriously, this book will leave you with your heart pounding, mouth watering and ovaries tingling. Get yourself a bucket of ice at the ready, cold showers or hell; get your partner/BOB's on standby as the sex scenes (and there is a lot of them) are ridiculously hot.

I want more of these characters and can’t wait to see what Anne Lange has in store for us next.

Anne grew up the oldest of four in Ontario, Canada. She works full-time and writes in her spare time. Books and shoes are her passion. Reading is her escape. Anne started writing in late 2009, realized she needed to figure out what in the world she was doing, and began her trek of workshops, networking and writing. While she reads many genres of fiction, she prefers to write hot, edgy romance with attractive men, sexy females, and always a happily ever after. She’d love for you to follow her on this journey as she brings more fiction to the world for people, who like her, just need to get away from it all for a few hours every now and then.
