Review: Make Mine Midnight by Annmarie McKenna

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
New Year’s resolutions have never looked so good.

New Year’s Eve. The party is rockin’, and Claire is in her usual spot holding up the wall. It’s all right. She’s much happier scribbling in her trusty little notebook than mingling. Especially since those notes turn into the sexy erotic romances she pens in secret. Those two gorgeous gods across the room are perfect hero material and…oh dear, are they headed her way?

Mason and Hunter know she won’t remember them as the scrawny geeks they were in high school. She also doesn’t know they’ve been lusting after her for ten long years, waiting for her to meet a man and have a normal relationship. They’re through waiting. The time has come to make their move—and show her exactly how much they’ve changed.

One night in the middle of a Mason/Hunter manwich, and Claire has enough research material to fill a hundred notebooks. Good thing she’s got OfficeMax on speed dial to order more. Except suddenly her two hunks have this crazy idea that keeping her is selfish. Selfish? She may be mousy, but this mouse is about to roar…

Warning: Threesomes! Light bondage, blindfolds, breakfast made by two hot men who used to be geeks. Parades, cotton candy, more sex, and convincing said men they are WRONG and threesomes are RIGHT.
My Thoughts:  I always say there's nothing wrong with a nice threesome.  True story.  I'm not making it up.  I do say that.  Often.  Sure, most of the time it's while I'm reading sexy menage books, but that's not really the point.  There's nothing wrong with a nice threesome.  There's nothing wrong with a naughty threesome either.  I'm just sayin'.

Guys, this is a short story.  There's not a ton of character development, but there's some fairly steamy sex.  I figure it's a fair trade-off.  Being a short story, things move very quickly.  Claire daydreams about the sexy guy at a party, sexy guy approaches her, sexy guy and best friend reveal they're former geeks who have loved her since high school, Clair throws caution to the wind and has wicked sex with them.  Boom.  Done.  Oh, there's some stuff about trying to save Claire the embarrassment of having to deal with a menage relationship in real life but this story is more about the sex.

So, if you're looking for something short and steamy, here you go.  If you want something epic and long winded, you might want to look somewhere else.

I'm just sayin'.

  1. Kelly, seriously, you crack me up! I'm just sayin'. And who cares about character development when you got S-E-X!
