Review: Paradise Found by Vivian Arend

Paradise Found (Bandicoot Cove #2) by Vivian Arend
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Paige has enjoyed every no-strings-attached minute with her two Australian lovers, Trent and Mason. Over the past eleven months, they've surfed, hiked...and explored their seemingly limitless sexual chemistry.

Her lovers' invitation to the opening of a new resort comes at the ideal time, because in a few days she's returning to Canada. It'll be a fitting swan song for their easygoing relationship. A chance to fulfill a few fantasies and then escape before her men realize she's broken the rules by falling in love with them both. Better to take flight than be forced to choose.

Unaware of Paige's self-imposed deadline, Trent and Mason scheme to get Paige on their yacht for a once-in-a-lifetime voyage with one goal in mind: break the news that they're ready for something more than casual-and hope she doesn't run like hell.

It's a delicate operation that'll require close attention to which way her emotional winds are blowing. One wrong word, and their paradise-perfect arrangement could be lost in an instant.

Warning: This book starts with the heat turned way up high. Two men entirely focused on one woman's pleasure. One woman stepping outside the box to please her men. An exotic resort suite featuring an erotic piece of furniture that makes menage a trois even hotter than usual. Really.
My Thoughts: Oh, Vivian Arend, you do know how to bring the heat. *fans self* Trent, Mason and Paige were deliciously sexy. I thoroughly enjoyed their interactions - both in and out of bed. Not that they spent much time in bed, exactly. But really, who'd want to limit themselves to the bedroom when they have a gorgeous Australian resort and a sexy couch at their fingertips?

In the first book, we saw Kylie find a way to make her relationships with her three men work. This time around we have Kylie's brother Trent and his best friend Mason who want to find a way to show their girl Paige that she's more than just a fuck-buddy. They're all a little scared to tell one another that their feelings have deepened (except Mason - he's hilariously forthcoming) and keeping these particular secrets might just end up driving Paige away before Mason and Trent can explain what they have planned. It's equal parts sweet and sexy and Vivian Arend captures Paige's heartbreak at the possibility of losing both men nicely.

I pretty much adore menage books. They're steamy and, if done correctly, they show how effective communication can make a triad work. Vivian Arend does it correctly. She brings the heat and she throws in a dash of nerves to make you feel for her characters. Well done, madam. Well done!
