Dinah had always loved Taylor and Ian as the best friends they were, but since she went to live with them, she never took their sexual innuendos and teasing serious because she knew they were lovers. Little did Dinah know, but Taylor and Ian wanted a women in their relationship that they could both love, and they were determined to make sure she know their intent. They both knew only too well Dinah was in a delicate state, and planned to do whatever it took to gain her love and trust. As they all get closer, she wonders what it would be like to be with them both, and when she experiences it, knows some changes are coming. She has some decisions to make.
Just as Dinah warms to with the idea of a permanent relationship with Taylor and Ian, they run into Ian's former girlfriend Cait. She instantly dislikes Dinah, and Taylor isn't happy with the reunion either. Taylor later explains that Cait and Ian used to be an item, and that she still wants him exclusively to herself. When Brad makes contact with Dinah, and someone targets her for some unknown reason, as much as she loves her men, she knows she must stand on her own and live on her own for a while. Will they wait for her? Can she have the kind of relationship with them that they have been seeking?
I enjoyed this book, but the story was too short, and the writing suffered for it. I also don't think that the relationship between Cait and Ian was really wrapped up. Ian let it slip that he had seen her more than the times Taylor even knew about, and he also told Cait the intimate details of his life with Taylor and Dinah. He wouldn't have done that if they were really over. Then there were the references Taylor made to Ian about Ian's deep feelings for Cait, and how he was still holding out hope she would change. Those type of deep feelings don't just disappear overnight.
Ian and Taylor are lovers but they also have a desire to add a woman into their relationship - permanently. They've been friends with Dinah for years, and had even hinted at a more intimate relationship before she'd gotten involved with Brad, but Dinah never took them seriously. Ian and Taylor are determined to help Dinah build up her self-esteem and show her just how good loving them could be.
Ian and Taylor had been aware of Brad's controlling nature and the toll it's taking on Dinah's sense of self worth, but they were not aware of any physical abuse until Taylor found her lying on the floor of her apartment beaten badly enough to require a few days of hospitalization. Taylor and Ian agree that Brad will never get another chance to abuse her in any fashion and insist on her coming home with them. She agrees - but only for a few weeks. Three months later, she's still living with them and Ian and Taylor's sexual innuendos are becoming more frequent. Dinah isn't sure how to respond to their `teasing.' She admits to herself that she's attracted to both men, but she's a one man kind of woman, isn't she? What if they aren't serious and reject her? Their normal Friday `date' night ends with her experiencing ecstasy at the hands of her two best friends, and Dinah realizes that in the middle of an Ian and Taylor sandwich may be exactly where she wants to be. Strange things start happening while at work that have her questioning her own desire for the men versus the expectations of her own family, friends, and society. Does she dare follow her heart?
Mechelle Armstrong's DINAH"S DARK DESIRES intrigued me from the very first page. I loved getting the opportunity to watch Dinah evolve from a quiet, fairly submissive young woman, to a woman who stands up for herself and what she believes, even if there's a possibility that she'll lose the two men she cares most about in the world - Ian and Taylor. Ian and Taylor are exactly the sort of men any woman would want in her life. They put Dinah's happiness and needs before their own. The scenes involving Ian, Taylor and Dinah are not just hot with sexual tension but they're also very sweet and tender - everything you'd want between friends and lovers. Ms. Armstrong adds an exciting element to the storyline with the air of mystery surrounding odd events that keep occurring. Just when I thought I had it all figured out I realized that I couldn't have been more wrong. DINAH'S DARK DESIRES will definitely heat up your fantasies and leave you anticipating many more wonderful books from Ms. Armstrong.

Dinah has a violent boyfriend who leaves her hurt. She has two friends, assumed gays, who take her to the hospital and then to their home so they can help her recover. However, the two friends, Taylor and Ian, want more of Dinah than her friendship.
As I said, the book is good but I think it would be better if the development of Dinah's feelings towards the two friends were more deeply checked and worked.
But it's a good, hot reading, without a doubt!
