I read a lot of erotica, sadly, a lot of it is just lame. The sex is not interesting, the characters are stilted, the story is flimsy and just exists to jump from one sex scene to the next and the dialog makes me cringe.
Thank goodness for writers like Emma Holly who know how to write sexy books - as in books with well written and hot sex in them but are literate and stand out as more than just a series of sexual encounters.
Kate Winthrop lives with two young men, Joe and Sean who are in a relationship. Kate comes home to find them having sex in her bedroom and when Sean teasingly invites her, she jumps at the chance and the three of them begin a relationship.
I can't say that I've really sought out a book with homoerotica in it, this book changed my perspective and although I've since read other books with gay (male) scenes, none of them have been as sexy as the ones Holly wrote in Menage.
So thanks Emma! Keep em comin! (no pun intended)

This book was my first stroll into the erotica section of the bookstore, and what an introduction! I read the whole thing in about one night.
Not only was the sex between Joe, Sean, and Katy hot, but I really liked them as characters. In the space of a few hundred pages Ms. Holly manages to create characters with amazing depth and dynamic. So not only was I rooting for them during the intense loves scenes, but also for them to all be happy in the end.
I loved the ending too. I kept trying to figure out how this menage could possibly end for the three, and I must say not only was I suprised by the turn of events, I was delighted.
I think that I'll trip over to the bookstore now and look at the other books in the Black Lace line.

When Kate Winthrop discovers her two male boarders in a romantic tryst in her bedroom, she accepts their offer to join them and thus begins an adventure for all three. Kate, a successful bookstore owner, finds herself attracted to the dominating, masterful Sean, who takes liberties with her body, but from whom Kate keeps her heart and soul at a safe distance. With Joe, Kate finds a sensitive, giving partner, one who cares for her needs and works to heal her from the wounds of her miserable marriage and divorce. This was my first Black Lace book, and I can see why they have such a following. The sex is hot - definitely some of the best written - but not at the expense of a good plot and character development. Kate is a character we all can identify with - smart, sexy, but emotionally gun-shy from a bad relationship. Both Joe and Sean are truly likeable characters, and appealing to me for different reasons. The combination is a one-two punch.

This was my first contemporary erotic romance book, and my, my, my, thank you Ms. Holly! I would categorize this as learning a little something about foreplay or bedplay for men versus the usual sensual focal point, after finding true love, being for the woman's gratification and arousal in a romance novel.

This was an unconventional way I learned a lot about sensitive, poignant hot spots for men other than the obvious - being that I gained my insight through a ménage trio (two men and a woman) romance book. I was so intrigued; I actually researched a lot of what Emma Holly described as sexually arousing for men and surprisingly found several of her `procedures' confirmed by well known, reputable sex/relationship advisors. There was one scene with an additional couple (male and female), but they were more so involved with setting the ambiance for the trio and being onlookers rather than participants in a ménage cinq (five) with everyone having sex with each other - an orgy. Although the three main characters quickly jump into bed together, they immediately make a commitment to each other; to only have sex amongst them until the relationship dissolves - when Joe follows his acting career to New York.

Believe it or not, this is a very good romantic story in which three people unrepentantly and expectantly fall in with each other; an older woman, Kate (who prefers masturbation to meaningless relationships with men she doesn't really desire) and two dynamic younger men (one aggressive dominant bi-sexual who prefers men (Sean) and the other a gentler considerate bi-sexual (Joe) who prefers one woman - Kate). Given the number of sex scenes, their stamina was incredible; while the scenes themselves were quite ingenious and erotic.

I can not imagine, page for page, packing more sex into a book and still maintain some semblance of a story line, but, I guess I should have expected this from one of the USA's best and hottest 'erotic' lit writers today.
I have to qualify 'erotic' since this book is not really eortic in the classic sense but rather an 'in your face' marathon sex race. The amazing thing is that it's so well written and scrumptious that you will not put it down. Definitely it's written from a strong woman's point of view as our heroine gets to squeeze her way into a sexual relationship with her two young hunk boarders. Note that I didn't use that 'homo' word, cause these two guys are probably what women would dream that homosexuals are like.
Real life ain't like that, but, who cares we buy these books to get a look at real life ... I think NOT.
OK so I loved the book and I think that Kate, Sean and Joe have to get gold medals if they ever make sex part of the Olympics.
