Be With Me and Tequila Truth

Well, I am having a two-fer menage day. Two very good friends-to-lovers menage books.

Be With Me by Maya Banks
She has a killer on her tail and three men in her bed… Hutch, Cam, and Sawyer were juvenile delinquents when they formed a friendship with the wealthy but lonely Regina. She felt loved for the first time in her life—by all three. Today she’s a police officer and wary of resuming her relationship with the hot trio—until an attempt is made on her life. When they jump in to protect her, an all-new bond is formed, one riskier than ever before because now a killer looms in the shadows.

This was an awesome book. Many times in menage books the problem is that the characters actually making the relationship work in the long run is not addressed well. Reality does not always step in. In this one, they address it very well, they reveal the issues they are having and the need to deal with them. There was great character development and emotion in this story. The suspense was also very good, it kept me guessing and kept moving.
If you liked Colter's Woman by Ms Banks, you will love this book.

If grading I would definitely give this an A.

One's the loneliest number. Two's company. Three's a fantasy come true.

The rules of Tequila Truth are quite simple. Shots are poured, a question asked, and only absolute truth can be the answer. Kylie Halston has been playing the game with her roommates, Colt and Heath, since their freshmen year of college. On his twenty-fifth birthday, Heath poses a question: "What is your ultimate sex fantasy?"

While Colt and Heath's fantasies are too hot for words, it's Kylie's sex dream that hits a little too close to home for all of them. Her wish? For a ménage a trois with two men, complete with bondage and a bit of spanking for good measure. Colt and Heath are only too willing to make Kylie's fantasies come true and they make a proposal-one no-holds-barred, sexed-up weekend where nothing is off the menu. The only question is, come Monday, will their platonic relationship survive the passion?

This was a little lighter than the other book, but still very good. The storyline was very good. They are three friends that have lived together since college and have always been platonic. But Kylie has a bad experience while experimenting with a boyfriend who took things too far and her roommates know that they are a better choice for her "experimenting". So they agree to a single weekend to fulfill all fantasies. As the weekend progresses they realize that none of them want to go back to the way things were.
I had fun with this book. It was a short sexy read (about 100 pages). Amazon does not list it at the moment, but you can get it at Samhain or I got it at Books on Board.

I was looking at Be With Me the other day. Is it 3 men and one woman? That's the way the blurb and cover make it look like. I'm a little weirded out by that! And if so, do all four remain together for a HEA?

Yes Be with me is a 4-some. Tequila is a 3-some and both have all of them in an HEA.

Sounds hot, perfect for when I'm in the mood for some really steamy erotic romance.

Hi Kris!
Thanks so much for leaving me the link to this review on my blog yesterday. As I said, I'm very curious about Be With Me since it recently did so well in the DA BAWAHA tournament. An A grade from you, as well as the other fantastic endorsements from other romance bloggers, I'm definitely going to give this a try!
