ARC Review: Three Hired Lovers by Melody Monroe

Fantasy Resort Series - Book 1

Jillian Masters has never had a climax. To save her job, she consents to a weekend at a resort designed to awaken her dormant sexuality. When she meets three totally hot hired lovers, (a cowboy, a Frenchman and a pool cleaner), she discovers her experience is way more than she’s ready for as their teasing and tempting forces her to confront her conflicting desires.  

When she finds out the three men have a hidden agenda, and that her professional career hangs in the balance, the devastating situation leads her to reevaluate her priorities.

Will she give into the temptation of her newly awakened arousal or will she leave them hanging?
I obtained the above information from Ms. Monroe's website.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

I was given this book for an honest review and my honest thoughts, so here goes...

Melody Monroe is a new to me author But one that will be on my radar from now on.  She has intrigued me through her story, kept me guessing as to what was going to happen and what would be the ending...

I put the notice about short stories up there but I want you know that this is not a super short story... It comes in around 110+ pages... I read it in an day. You will want to know what happen just the same.

Let me say this is a menage with a twist... I thought the brother thing might ick me out because I didn't know what way Rod, Frank and Joe would take this story... But I have to say that I was quite surprised how it ended...

Jillian Masters is a woman who spends her life in the lab as a chemist. She lives for mixing components together to make products better, she combines things to create things to bring pleasure, she also works on the chemical make up for those products to design better ones... it's what she lives for. What about her life you may ask... Well, the lab is her life. Until one day her dad makes her take a vacation she will never forget about.

Joe, Frank and Rod are brothers... Joe is the oldest brother. Sweet and tender. Frank is the middle. A little demanding but a touch of softness to him. And Rod is the baby, but he is no push over. These are full grown, hot blooded, all American men. Well rounded in all aspects of their lives, even the business they run together. Welcome to their world of making sex toys and products that brings pleasure to couples or just the individual themselves. They are driven, but each one with a different goal. Now with one proposition... Can they have their cake and eat it too??

The brothers get offered a chance of a lifetime... To have their company be bought out for five million dollars. Isn't that any business man's dream... But with all offers, comes the catch. Can they handle the catch? To seduce the daughter of the CEO and make her understand the concept of what she creates.

When I started this book, at first I was taken back by Jillian's father request. You guessed it, he is the CEO that wants to buy out the boy's business. The request was quite bold and if I may say so... really out there. But as the story evolves, you will see and understand the man's request. The reasoning behind the offer. But still.... How the boys take the offer and make it their own is what gets the story going... Jillian's reaction to each brother was a little quick for being a lab rat, but she is woman after all... and being surrounded by men like these... Well hell, I am sure you would be purring like a kitty too in front of them.

I enjoyed how Ms. Melody tied the story together... and how she added stories within the story. She did not complicate the main story to offer us side stories. That was done very well. What I loved the most is how each brother brought something different to the table to offer Jillian. To watch them grow together and see how their story unfolds was truly refreshing. To witness how each brother falls for Jillian and proves just how much they love her is just unbelievable.

This is by far a very hot story with a touch of sadness, a mix of hot tempers and some serious loving. Oh and did I mention... some serious hot sex!!! This is a great story to lose yourself in for a day or two. Especially if you are fantasizing about what it's like to have three brothers all to yourself... Welcome to Jillian's world!

  3. Great review. I've never read her work, but perhaps I'll have to make a note to do so.

    I do have to say though... is it just me or is the cover a bit, well odd? I'm still trying to figure out if the woman is facing away from the men and twisting her head back around or if she's facing towards them and just has no chest? LOL. Not sure if I'd pick this one up based on the cover alone... But then again, we can't judge a book by it's cover! :D



I want to thank you for stopping by my place... I hope to see you again!!
I hope you enjoy my little bloggie home as much as I do!
With hugs, love and smiles... Cecile
