Editorial Reviews

Review

The Romance Reviews 5 Stars "Bottom Line: This short story is big on drama, sex and story...all done VERY well. Highly recommended."
Rainbow Book Reviews 4 Stars
 
"It was still blisteringly sexy on my re-read and I think should unequivocally not be missed. Suggestively seductive!"

Wow! What can I say? From page one I couldn’t put my kindle down!
Overprotective parents and a school advisor, who turned out to be pedophiles, taking advantage of insecure and abused Maggie reduce her self-esteem to nil. Things get complicated later on in her life, when she starts falling for her two “perfect” bosses, Michael and Aaron, who, whoever, are a couple. Discovering that they are bisexual and craving for Maggie makes things steamy hot.
Optical Illusions by Gale Stanley is one hot read. But it’s not only that. It takes things to another level by deeply exploring the feelings of the protagonists—especially Maggie’s. Mixed emotions of desire, doubts, and guilt spring out of the page, captivating the reader.

I loved this steamy book about a girl and two guys finding their way to love. Maggie has had a difficult time of it, but what could be better than her two delicious bosses helping her heal those old wounds? The author has a great style and knows how to convey the emotions of her characters clearly. The sex in this book is extremely HOT, and I'd recommend it to any fan of erotic romance!

There's so much good in this one little book!

After being the target of an older man as a rebellious and clueless teenager, Maggie Jones' life changed forever. Now 26 and working at Optical Illusions optometrist's office, Maggie is a hell of a lot more reserved, even though she can't stop fantasizing about her gorgeous gay bosses, Aaron Moore and Michael Briggs. Aaron and Michael have been a couple since college, but they've always known that they'd eventually want a woman in their life to share...Maggie is that woman. But Maggie is afraid to reach out and grab the life that they're dangling in front of her. Will her fear of the past destroy her chance to have exactly what she wants?

So, yea...OPTICAL ILLUSIONS starts off with a shocking and disturbing situation that Maggie finds herself in, along with the fallout from her actions. Maggie's choices are ones that any one of us could have found ourselves making as young and impressionable teens, and the way she handles herself afterward was quite realistic yet terribly sad. It really reflects the fact that so many people tend to blame the victim of any kind of abuse, but Maggie doesn't let it stop her life. She's so relatable, both in her actions and her desires, her quest to be a good girl with a bad girl's soul inside. Even though this was a short novella, it packed a wildly erotic punch in the few sex scenes that were there! The guys clearly had chemistry with one another and with Maggie, and when they're sharing their plans, this little gem shines through:

"I do trust you. It's just that, I always thought you were--"

"Independents." Aaron chuckles. "Like in politics.

Love Gale Stanley's work--the way she can get into a character's head and actually make you feel vested in their happy forever. So of course, when this little gem of a book came out, of course I wanted to sink my teeth into this. Why not? After all, it's not everyday that you actually read about a threesome with such growth and emotional development of the lead female character.

Maggie, the lead protagonist in question, comes with lots of baggage from her past. Abused and low in self-confidence, she pours herself into her work. Lines blur when she starts having erotic fantasies about her two bosses, Michael and Aaron.

Aaron and Michael, having been a couple since college, are bisexual men who've missed having a woman around. So when they take Maggie under their covers, things get really steamy hot.

Descriptive, immersive, erotic and romantic -- perfect combo to experience a taste of menage through Maggie's eyes. I really enjoyed seeing Maggie grow comfortable in her body, in the relationship and truly let go of her past to embrace her present. Another hot read!

What a great read. I could almost feel Maggie’s emotions coming off the page. I like to read about flawed characters. Who can relate to perfection – not me. Maggie was abused in high school, her self-esteem is zilch, and she doesn’t trust anyone, but she longs for physical intimacy and love. Her inner struggles make her vulnerable and she has a one-night stand. For a short time, she feels sexy and empowered, but then the guilty feelings start. I thought the author described Maggie's emotions and thoughts perfectly, and I loved seeing Maggie grow and change. This is a very well written contemporary romance with some super-sexy scenes.

Optical Illusions by Gale Stanley is a super sizzling read. This is Stanley's best work. The story is told from the point of view of Maggie. She had a strict upbringing, was abused in high school...she is damaged. No self esteem and guilt plague Maggie, thus she trusts no one.

Then she meets Michael and Aaron, a bisexual couple looking for a female to 'complete' their relationship. What does Maggie do? I'm not going to give too much away, but this is a super sexy romantic read that captures a lot of emotion. You'll want to add this to your Kindle.
