Jack Cartwright has put his wild sexual side firmly in the past so he can focus on his graduate studies. All he wants is to finish his thesis. But the appearance of three mysterious students in a neighboring suite throws his careful plans into chaos. Especially when he catches the three of them together…in bed.
Clare, Luc and Rob have a highly unusual relationship. Friends since childhood, the two boys rescued Clare from unimaginable horrors. They’ve been her protectors ever since, and something more. But Clare can’t stop thinking about the sexy, smoldering resident advisor down the hall, and what fierce urges might be hiding behind his controlled exterior.
Now Jack’s dark sexual needs threaten to derail his career as the irresistible threesome lures him into their secret erotic world. But when obsession takes hold, rules don’t stand a chance.

I obtained the above information from Ms. Bell's website.
I received this book from Ellora's Cave for my honest thoughts on this story...
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...
This is a short story and you guys know how I feel about giving out to much information on short stories... I am a fan of Ms. Bell's work and this one drew me in quick because the main three characters are from my home state... Louisiana. So, I am a little bias when it comes to the story... But I was partial to the rest of the story. Ms. Bell has a way with her words and her characters. She makes you want to dive deep into the story - even if it is a short story - and makes you want something, makes you need something... makes you feel something. This story was no different....
It is a short story, I know I have said that.. So the story line is plotted out, but it was a little rushed. In my opinion, given a few more pages... The back story of Luc, Clare and Rob would have flowed very well with the leaving of Louisiana. And with a few more pages, Jack's deep secrets could have been exposed... But remember my warning... Ms Bell did not have a few pages to spare... So, the story she gave was great!
The tension between her characters are strung so tight, you probably could play a violin on them. The sexual need hanging in the balance was so thick you could have spanked it and never heard a sound. The desire so heavy, you will probably feel it dripping around your neck....
Rob, Luc and Clare will take Jack's world and flip it upside down and inside out. But in the end, will he be the one in control or will they all three control him.... Who's Beautiful Obsession is it anyways.... You wanna find out....
