It’s Mara’s birthday weekend and Ethan’s arranged for a very special surprise. Mara believes that their weekend at a secluded cabin is an attempt at an apology for his recent neglect which will include lots of hot make up sex. In a way she’s right, but not in the way she thinks – it’s not going to be just the two of them. Ethan has enlisted the help of his coworker and Mara’s former lover Rogan Wolfe to fulfill one of Mara’s fantasies.
Mara’s stunned when she learns about Ethan’s plans for the weekend. As far as she knew Ethan and Rogan didn’t even particularly like each other so she’s not certain how she feels about the whole situation. She has no doubt that she’ll enjoy Rogan’s attention – after all, he is the bad boy who introduced her to the more intense pleasures of sex. Ethan, on the other hand is more gentle and considerate when it comes to their sex life. She desperately wants to work on fixing the problems in her and Ethan’s relationship and she can’t begin to imagine what this weekend will mean for the future.
PARTY OF THREE by Lacey Alexander allows readers to experience the emotional ride as Mara, Ethan and Rogan spend a weekend exploring and dealing with the feelings they’ve not dared to acknowledge. I really enjoyed the fast pace of this storyline and how Ms. Alexander didn’t skimp on the more emotional impact of being part of a ménage relationship – even if it’s just for a short time.
