I read this book on the recommendation of a blogger that I enjoy who talks about her romance pet peeves. In this particular case, Beck & Call was held up as an example of how to do a romantic threesome the right way. This isn't even the case of a couple opening their relationship and falling for the third together. Instead, each character tracks a steady arc of developing feelings for the other two, which was a journey I enjoyed thoroughly.
I also appreciated how there was nary a "meet-cute" in sight. Instead, this is the story of friends turned to lovers, with a healthy dose of industrial espionage gone wrong -- and then completely right. The external plot never felt shoved in. Instead, everything that happened developed just as naturally as the relationship itself.
As individual characters, Mia was a bit too perfect. Jake and Damien each had pasts that created complex, three-dimensional characters (even though Damien is only 29, he "read" as much older). At 22, I might have wanted Mia to match up to the men a bit more, but I acknowledge that aging her would have removed some of the elements that made the plot and character chemistry possible.
The fantastical elements of this novel, the night club and sex club, might not have rung true when everything else about the story was so rooted in reality. Yet just like the explanation for Mia's extraordinary memory, I was swept along and enjoyed the ride. After all, aren't romances just as fantastical, in the end, as anything that involves magic or other worlds?
My biggest nit-pick about this novel is that it could have used another sweep by a copy editor. But it's not THAT big, because I already have the sequel queued up on the Kindle.
Thank you Emma Holly!
Its a great page turner you don't want to down till the very end.
It was very descriptive in the writing,that made it feel like you were watching a movie. This kinda writing is great!
Jake Reed, Discreet's third member, is another story. Former CIA, he's tall, dark, and dangerous. He's sexier than any man Mia has ever encountered and, even though he's most likely 15 years her senior, she wants a piece of him. Best of all, he feeds into her fantasy with his "Hey, beautiful" and "Thanks, doll" endearments. But that's as far as Jake ventures even though he himself has harbored a few fantasies about the beautiful, curvy Mia.
Today is Mia's lucky day. Curtis needs her and her eidetic memory to work a big time case of corporate espionage. As Jake's partner! Oh yeah, she's up for that. Jake's not so sure 22 year old Mia is qualified. But when Curtis announces that Jake and Mia must play the role of a Dom/sub couple to attract the attention of billionaire Damien Call, Jake realizes Mia is indeed perfect. Her doe-eyed innocence, sensuous body, and natural submissiveness will surely appeal to Call and his reputation as a voyeur at an exclusive BDSM club. And the Dom in Jake is itching to have Mia under his control even if it's merely to lure in their target.
The fiery chemistry between Mia and Jake immediately captivates Damien. The intimacy is deep and darkly erotic as the voyeur becomes one of the players. This is now much more than a job for Mia and Jake. The depth of emotion and sex between all three is intense and absolutely electric. Mia blossoms under Jake's dominance and Damien's desire. The power exchange between Jake and Damien is like watching two gladiators clash. It's so unbelievably hot. This is one of the best M/M/F power exchange stories I've read in a long time. Add in the suspense and action of the espionage story line in BECK & CALL and you have a fantastically sexy read that you won't want to end.
I hang my head in shame that this is my first book by Emma Holly. Her voice is captivating, her characters well developed. She knows her BDSM and her erotic scenes caused quite a few instances of heart palpitations and panty melting during my reading of this book.

The only downside was the editing. A one point Jake was even given the wrong name of Jack. I would have given this 5 stars but for the littering of errors. I was surprised that someone of Emma Holly's standing and experience would let such a large amount of errors go to publish. A shame.
Take one successful, brilliant and emotionally unavailable young billionaire, a charismatic, dominant former secret service operative and a charming and clever young woman with a unique gift, throw in an intriguing plot featuring industrial espionage and you get a very entertaining and sexy novel.
It has totally opened my eyes and kept me sick to the seat till using was finished the book.
