The story was a little too simplistic for me to really get into.

I love the way Eden Bradley writes. I have read most of the books she was written. So when I purchased this book. I thought I was in for a good read. I was so disappointed. I only read the first 5 chapters, ( before giving up ) in hopes it would get better, It never did. I will however, purchase any new books she writes. She is a wonderful writer. This book was just a one off.

Format: Paperback
Bettina Boothe is the newcomer at a writers' retreat comprised of several other likeminded authors she's only met online. It's a small group which should help her feel more comfortable with interacting with people rather than remaining isolated as she's liable to do. While she's understandably nervous at the prospect of finally meeting face to face people she's chatted with but never met, the other authors are quick to put her at ease - and a few even introduce her to experiences she never would have imagined partaking in.

While Bettina is comfortable with most of the other writers' there's one in particular who has caught her attention and interest. Audrey LeClaire's sensual nature and outgoing flirtatious personality draws people to her like magnets. Bettina's stunned by her own attraction to the other woman but certainly isn't opposed to exploring those feelings. For a while it seems as if Audrey can't get enough of Bettina but then Jack Curran, another author, arrives and Bettina finds herself confused by Audrey's sudden lack of interest in her.

Unlike Bettina, Jack is well used to Audrey's sensual free-love attitude. She takes pleasure wherever and with whomever she's interested in at any given time and for a time each year Audrey focuses all that attention on Jack. Jack and Audrey welcome Bettina into their love play and she revels in the experience of being loved and cherished by two people she's extremely attracted to but she's having trouble coping with her conflicting emotions.

Bettina struggles with her feelings of insecurity, jealousy and blatant desire where Jack and Audrey are concerned.

Once again Ms. Bradley does not disappoint. This book makes you think, makes you want to physically be there on that beach not necessarily to be a part of the characters (even though there are many times that made you wish you were) but to be of witness to the chemistry and the love three people can have with each other and the different types of love in this story. As I was reading this story I found myself at times nodding my head in agreement, laughing and even getting teary eyed. It opens your eyes to see that not matter what you tell yourself, you can never fool your heart! Definitely a must read for those that love a true romance story with some really hot steamy coupling :)

Hot sex: the one and only reason to read this book. You won't read it because you identify with any of the characters, since not one of them is remotely realistic. Bettina goes to a writers' retreat in California, where the attendees do a lot more lusting, drinking and screwing than they do writing. She is a 28 year-old who says she has "never been attracted to a woman", and never "carried about being anything more than a friend to a man." Yet she goes into immediate, obsessive heat when she lays eyes on Audrey, and then has the same reaction to Jack. And how about those two, Audrey and Jack? Bettina variously describes them as beautiful, enchanting, charming, glamorous, lovable and magical. Really? So how is it that neither of these oh-so-perfect people have a significant other back home? Come on now, gimme a break. Our narrator, Bettina, is such a whiny, self-absorbed wimp that I was rooting for her to come to an unpleasant end. But this is, after all, an erotic romance, so that wasn't about to happen.

Here is a story about free spirits who flit through life, doing whatever they like, and continually hurting others and themselves. Then on a writing seminar holiday she finds lesbian sex, and a threesome, then her true love. Weak people who are self centered finally realizing what they are doing is shallow. Two of the three have success as they find love with each other. Why must we all find out so late in life what we are or should be ?

Format: Paperback
First off a warning. This book is not safe for minors. It was quite a bit more than even I expected.

Bettina Boothe is a reclusive author that doesn't get out much. Most of her contacts on virtual and most of her conversations happen online. She is invited to an author's retreat and decides that, for once, she is going to brave the world and go do something. At the retreat she meets Audrey and Jack and sparks fly....in every direction imaginable.

The story was a little too simplistic for me to really get into. I understand the point of this book was the relationships and the sex, but the sex definitely took center stage. There seemed to be more pages describing what they were doing to each other than what they were feeling about it. And when they did get into the feelings it seemed very whiny. I didn't feel like I really go to know or relate to any of them.

2/5
