story Three guys want Marly, Marly really wants one of them, ping pong this idea til you re blue in the face, stick in some endlessly repetitive sexual tension, add some menage and voila, 300 pages of a poorly put together story I didn t feel the romance in this book but the sex part came across real well o Very high on the ick ew factor here Leigh has a way of making raw sex come out as just plain gross She describes vaginal noises as the slurp of suction ew For me that s just so not sexy, very visual but not sexy When Marly takes on the brothers all together I just got that container being filled up to bursting image and she had to take it because otherwise the hero would leave her that was priceless She was never given the time that you d think a virgin would need to get used to this lifestyle All these ultimatums left a bad taste for me I can understand the dominant male seducing the female who s a sub at heart but there was no seduction It was a crude do it and shut up about it affair So hard to come across a good menage story without the yuck and mean being included it seems Never mind that, what about the story Where is the story If the story is about sex then don t disguise it as a love story or some piddly attempy at romantic suspense, it s disappointing and aggravating for the reader I didn t like the writing style overall Everything is too extreme everyone burns, is on fire, it s an inferno, white hot orgasms left right and centre When an author overuses these descriptions everything starts to feel the same after a while and nothing is special It s just weak writing I think.A big problem I couldn t manage to get an answer for was why do they love Marly Well who knows And who cares was what the author was implying By the end I figured out that that just wasn t important They want to f her senseless and they do too to the point that she goes into a state of unconsciousness Now if that isn t the stupidest thing I ve ever read I don t know what is I m all for the mad bad sex that sends the character reeling, but so far that they pass out, well someone is in need of medical attention It s dumb Here s Cade trying to revive her too and then shortly after he wants to do it to her again no concern at all that she s passed out but she s scared and he says Don t deny me Marly HAHAHAHA What the % .Why would any sane woman and she did appear to be want to spend even 5 minutes with this cretin There were other gems likeDon t deny mebut for those of you still wanting to read this piece I ll let you discover them for yourself because Cade, well he is a charmer that one What is there to love about this guy Really Nothing Now this begs the question of why Marly loves Cade Same answer Don t know, meaningless info for the author to take the time to show that He s a tyrant, he s horribly selfish, he s a pig, and he s the kind of jerk that could use a brick upside the headthan once, so, you see, he s your basic ass really Then there s his proposal which has to be the worst I ve come across yet He screws her in front of everyone after a horribly shocking thing happens and then proposes with an I love you Marly baby Why Why does he love her Why does he want to marry her They don t talk, they don t do anything apart from going at it like jack rabbits in mating season where is this love coming from The story is painfully repetitive up until page 240 where finally something goes on There is just not enough to move the story along before It s a non stop circle of I want you so much baby I m burning , to I can t have you baby but I m burning and round and round we go on the merry go round of lust It didn t bother me that she grew up with these guys because they weren t her blood relatives but it does have a creepy feel to it if you think about it for too long not that this book provokes any deep thought or anything There are some sex toys used that were pretty much forced on her but she ended up liking it Marly s a virgin and she s taking it up everywhere just like that, no adjustment time just a this is us, this is how we are Marly You have to accept it and don t forget, we love you gag gag gag Why doesn t this make the cootie shelf Well the heroine wasn t TSTL She did hold her own on occasion against Mr Stalin in the Bedroom Truth be told I was expecting either a complete blow up doll idiot like whatsherface from Maya Banks Colters Woman or that petulant no mind broad Morganna from Leigh s so called mainstream novel Dangerous Games both being fine examples of cootie shelf material So why Marly chose these winners especially Cade the Creep , god only knows thrives on aggravation perhaps, insanity, warped sense of self worth A myriad of possibilities it seems none of which I could understand There are so many emotional holes in this story it s the Swiss cheese of romance o How can an author not show that apart from the sex, there is a reason why the h h love one another Baffling Essentially the story has no substance It s one big f fest with kink and a pseudo sub story cause I guess you gotta fill up those pages sometimes with something other than the call of the wild Now if that s what you re looking for, then hey enjoy the read, you re in for some first rate erotica

    4 stars Romantic Suspense Erotica BDSM M nageThis is a bit tough to review because I had sort of a love hate thing going on with this bookhated the characters but loved the smokin hot sex I think I tend to judge Lora Leigh s books differently than those by other romance authors though because I know going in that her male leads are usually angst laden, dominating, uber alpha a holes whether they re military, cowboys, or cops with troubled pasts and tortured souls, but she writes such e 4 stars Romantic Suspense Erotica BDSM M nageThis is a bit tough to review because I had sort of a love hate thing going on with this bookhated the characters but loved the smokin hot sex I think I tend to judge Lora Leigh s books differently than those by other romance authors though because I know going in that her male leads are usually angst laden, dominating, uber alpha a holes whether they re military, cowboys, or cops with troubled pasts and tortured souls, but she writes such engrossing stories and scorch the pages hot sex scenes that I still enjoy and love her books regardless of whether or not I even like the characters.That being said, Marly s Choice really pushed my ick factor limit and both Cade and Marly s characters severely tried my patience.Marly s lusted and supposedly lovedrolling my eyes Cade August since she came to live with him and his brothers on their ranch when she was twelve Now that s she s 20 and finally a woman rolling my eyes again , she decides that she s tired of him treating her like his niece which she is and an immature girl which she is and sets out to seduce him and make him hers in every way, once and for all Cade lusts and burns for Marly like no other woman ever before, but he s got some deep, dark secret in his past that makes it impossible for him to be caring, gentle, or to love anyone Since he can t be what an innocent, virgin like her needs emotionally, he makes himself deny and resist her attempts at a physical relationship, yet he refuses to allow her to be with anyone else either Eventually he realizes that resistance is futile, but unless she can completely submit to his rough, dominating, demanding ways in the bedroom and take everything he has to give her without question, then he ll have to let her go One of his requirements is that she accept a m nage relationship with his brothers oh, and maybe some other women at some point too , but of course, it s her choice Talk about dysfunction junction, what s your dysfunction I mean, if people want to freely engage in a m nage, then have a damn m nage, but the whole I have to because I m emotionally scarred and the demanding my woman better accept my need to share her with my brothers or else because otherwise it means she really doesn t love me thing is just silly and lame Ahhhcounseling anybody I think every one of the main characters in this book Cade, Marly, Brock, and Sam were in need of some major therapy instead of hiding from their traumatic pasts and masking their emotional pain with intense sex But hey, what do I know Besides, it s still really hot Why does Marly love Cade anyway Because he did a humanly decent thing and gave her shelter when her mother abandoned Marly, in the care of Cade and his brothers Sam and Brock, in order to protect her from her molesting step father Because he waited until she was 16 to start lusting after her in full and then waited until she was 20 to take and claim her innocence I mean, I usually don t mind age differences between the H H in romance and enjoy the whole you re like a kid sister theme I even have a shelf for it , but Cade was practically her step uncle and raised her since she was a 12 year old girl, so it s a little bit icky And honestly, I don t know why anyone would love, or even like, either one of them because Cade is a cold, mean, arrogant, selfish, demanding, and controlling brute and Marly is na ve, childish, moody, and whiny.So, why did I still rate it 4 stars Because even though the characters are super annoying, the story although eye roll inducing at times completely sucked me in, the sex scenes are burn your fingertips hot, and it s a smutastic treat I would sort of equate this to a bad Skinamax flick that you stay up into the wee hours of the night watching, even though it s so awful that you can t help but wonder how the heck it got made in the first place, yet you can t seem to change the channel And since this ended without complete resolution for the characters, I definitely have to read the other two books in the Men of August series to get Brock and Sam s stories and to find out what happens with the crazy, horny, dysfunctional August clan

    Let me begin by stating this fact The WTFery is strong with this one This is not the kind of book where you think to yourself, What a finely drawn depiction of life and love No this is the kind of book where the characters are crazy, the situations are crazy, and yet you suspend your disbelief and continue reading because the sexy times are so awesome And there are sexy times on pretty much every other page YAY Honestly, I love WTFery in erotic romance, and I love emotionally unstable an Let me begin by stating this fact The WTFery is strong with this one This is not the kind of book where you think to yourself, What a finely drawn depiction of life and love No this is the kind of book where the characters are crazy, the situations are crazy, and yet you suspend your disbelief and continue reading because the sexy times are so awesome And there are sexy times on pretty much every other page YAY Honestly, I love WTFery in erotic romance, and I love emotionally unstable and crazy characters so I was ready for an awesome read About 55% in I was like, this is five stars all the way HELL YEAH Sadly, the second half of the book let me down It was like having really really really ultra hot foreplay, but then the guy whips it out and it s pencil sized Oh, man Let me explain The basic premise is that you have an extremely mentally damaged hero, Cade, and an extremely damaged, child abused heroine named Marly They desperately want each other YAY Cade is obsessed with taking women anally, and pounding them for hours with his big c k because he s so animalistically insatiable OMG, YESSS ALSO, because of his psychological damage, he has to share these women he s tearing up with his two brothers OMG, I M GOING TO ORGASM According to Cade, none of this is negotiable Annabel passes out from arousal.Around 55% on my kindle file, Cade warns Marly I ll f ck you there ass Is that what you want, Marly And it won t stop there There will be no going back to school, no girlish nights out, no flirting with other men, nothing but me f cking you day after day, night after night And a little further along I don t accept no for an answer when I want something sexually, baby I told you I was rough, and I meant it And a little later, some gossip Marly overheard about him She says he goes crazy if she resists something he wants Makes her take him and makes her love it He loves it when she fights him She says it makes him harder, makes him ride her forever Like an animal Okay, by that point I had to literally change my panties I cannot imagine a sexier,f ed up premise than this hero going batdong crazy on her in bed, tearing her anus up night after night after night, making her do stuff she doesn t want to do until she likes it, making her take all his brothers and then tenderly holding her and soothing her to sleep each night because, of course, he loves her so much I was like, this is gonna be the best, sexiest, most f cked up book EVAH The problem is, after we re made hot by these idea, after the author seems to promise us crazy pounding anal f ckfests and forced night long sextravaganzas, and an August brother crammed in every Marly hole, all we really get is a lot of cunnilingus and one very short, tame m nage scene at the end with the brothers where, sadly, all three holes are not utilized at once in a brutal f ckfest but inof a we don t wanna hurt you, oh hey lay back and lemme just lick yer pussy somekind of interlude Cade also lets Marly walk all over him which completely negates all the stuff he keeps spouting about his command and his insatiability Worse, he threatens to punish her a few times, and I think, ooh, that will be hot and sexy but we never get a chance to see him punish her for anything Yeah, thanks for the tease Why bring it up if there s not going to be any punishment action To me, Cade started to ring false, almost like an editor made her soften him up after the fact so he would haveuniversal appeal It was just a let down It made me sad.It was kind of the same let down with the villain plot There s all this build up to a huge showdown and possible violence and craziness, but then the villain is actually confronted and taken down in a very short, kind of cutesy couple paragraphs I almost missed the whole thing, it happened so quickly and casually Not that you read this kind of book for the plot, but it felt like a missed opportunity for a powerful and dramatic scene I felt like the author started with a vision for this book, but due to some outside pressure, perhaps, she decided to tone it down, so the book went out with a whimper rather than a scream The finale sex scene was a whimper, the plot climax was a whimper My reader climax unachieved.With that said, the author is great at writing sex She is dirty, dirty, dirty YAY The sex scenes were copious and full of fluids, heaving, thrusting, and other such explicit pleasures There was a lot of insertion of butt plugs and dildos which was very hot There was very fucked up family dynamics and even some moments of extreme squickiness Yes, these are good things when you have consensually signed on for a WTF read That s why I gave this book four stars I agreed to this craziness, and Ms Leigh delivered to a point.But honestly, I wish she had followed through on Cade s announcements that he was crazy and anal obsessed and that he d ride her forever, rather than just having him going down on her half the time I wish the author had those three brothers piling on Marly through scene after scene the way I wanted, rather than the very tentative m nage scene at the end I wish the author had just GONE THERE after she set it up in such an exciting way So my four stars areor less for the POTENTIAL she set up in this book, and my excitement early on at where this book might go Just because the book didn t get there doesn t mean I didn t get a thrill thinking about the possibilities I will always remember the Cade Marly brothers m nage of MY fantasies, even if I didn t get to experience them in this book

    I thought this book was abuse The boys were her stepbrothers and they felt they were protecting her from her father who wanted to abuse her Having said that, how could they justify their actions I thought Cade was a jerk and he never came around enough for me The whole share to make us all feel connected because we had an abusive father riled me up The sex was hot, but too abusive for my taste Cade ran hot and cold knowing he was going to share her, but chastising her when she was comfo I thought this book was abuse The boys were her stepbrothers and they felt they were protecting her from her father who wanted to abuse her Having said that, how could they justify their actions I thought Cade was a jerk and he never came around enough for me The whole share to make us all feel connected because we had an abusive father riled me up The sex was hot, but too abusive for my taste Cade ran hot and cold knowing he was going to share her, but chastising her when she was comforting one of the brothers in the hospital bed Having her give him oral sex in the barn stall then calling her a whore Just left me cold

    I m glad I read this expecting it to be horrendously written with skeevy sex because I had a blast for the most part Zosia s reviews of the Nauti series really did me a favor because I could kick my feet up and enjoy As a result, I didn t get hung up on all the damn yous and souls and waxed beef curtains, although I did discover that harsh and bit out are just as ill used by La Leigh.But I now see why Leigh is such a guilty pleasure, because published Godawfulness really doesn t get be I m glad I read this expecting it to be horrendously written with skeevy sex because I had a blast for the most part Zosia s reviews of the Nauti series really did me a favor because I could kick my feet up and enjoy As a result, I didn t get hung up on all the damn yous and souls and waxed beef curtains, although I did discover that harsh and bit out are just as ill used by La Leigh.But I now see why Leigh is such a guilty pleasure, because published Godawfulness really doesn t get better than this The sex wasn t hot I seem to be in the minority on that , the plot was inept and only there to make this technically erotica instead of flat out porn, and the characters were so OTT and one note that I honestly couldn t believe what I was reading Even so, while the hilarious stuff was epic, the blah stuff was really blah I d love to have given it 5 stars for all the funneh, but it didn t have THAT many ha has.Will I read anyby this absurdly prolific and unedited stream of consciousness self dervative porn queen Perhaps Probably by the time I pick up another one, she ll have written 20books and it won t matter which one I pick up because they ll all be the same Until then, I ll treasure these past 3 days of frequent status updates and the use of Awesome Smiley to convey my giddy delight.There s always something to be learned from every book La Leigh has taught me that an empty orifice is a lonely orifice, as well as the valuable psychotherapy advice that fraternal bonds can be reaffirmed by having your dick rub against your bro s with only an adopted niece s butt membrane separating them.Otherwise, it s just gay

    Lora Leigh s readers are accustomed to intense characters and plots filled with nuance and psychological depth The Men of August series doesn t disappoint In fact, this series is psychologically darker than most of Leigh s stories There are many erotic scenes, but this series is much deeper.Marly s Choice could have been penned a la Diana Palmer the classic theme of guardian and virginal ward but Cade August is not like Palmer s brooding but honorable heroes Cade August has two younger b Lora Leigh s readers are accustomed to intense characters and plots filled with nuance and psychological depth The Men of August series doesn t disappoint In fact, this series is psychologically darker than most of Leigh s stories There are many erotic scenes, but this series is much deeper.Marly s Choice could have been penned a la Diana Palmer the classic theme of guardian and virginal ward but Cade August is not like Palmer s brooding but honorable heroes Cade August has two younger brothers And like men who ve been together through the worst imaginable combat, these three men have bonded Not because they are brothers, but because of their shared memories.They do share their women andthan anything, they want to share the young woman that the three of them raised through her adolescence because they all love Marly.Marly s Choice hints at the causes for their sexuality, but doesn t tell the whole story It reveals the character of the August brothers and Marly, which I think is important when you see how she responds to the addition of Sarah in Sarah s Seduction.There is an element of suspense throughout as Marly is being stalked That problem is quickly resolved near the end or so it seems.The title for this book should probably be Marly s Choice Men of August, Part 1 Never before have I seen a series that a must be read in order and b must be read in its entirety to truly be appreciated and understood with an exception for August Heat in the Twelve Quickies of Christmas anthology that book just gives us an HEA epilogue.I recommend getting all three books Marly s Choice, Sarah s Seduction, and Heather s Gift and reading them back to back because once you ve read Marly s Choice, you ll want to know the rest of the story

    This book was hot I think that Cade is my least favorite brother He was so obnoxious and arrogant he was getting on my last nerve I did like Marly She knew what she wanted and went after it I also liked that she stood her ground when she did not agree with Cade.

    I love M F M books but this one just didn t do it for me. I never got a real feel for the characters in this book as in most erotic books One of the borthers Brock he is like a ghost in this book he is there but you never hear form him just a few lines even in the sex. What I disliked most is when a woman says no even though she still feels like having sex no is no, so I felt like this book really borderlines she keep saying no and he keep telling her she wants it and she end up doing it.

I never got the feel for romance in this book I know this is a sex book but most I have read I have felt it not this one I also have heathers gift sams book.I looked through it I will say these boys share all the women so If your one for that this set if totaly for you.

    What a disappointment With all of that erotic promising a very steamy and BDSM culture, this book turns out to be disappointment The pull and push between Carly and Cade is so annoying that I feel I was watching a very very bad soap opera Marly obsessed with Cade He is her first crush and first love When Marly gets older she throws herself to Cade and Cade keep refusing her Quoting that he is Dom and he likes rough sex And yet Marly still wanting him When finally Cade giving in and agree What a disappointment With all of that erotic promising a very steamy and BDSM culture, this book turns out to be disappointment The pull and push between Carly and Cade is so annoying that I feel I was watching a very very bad soap opera Marly obsessed with Cade He is her first crush and first love When Marly gets older she throws herself to Cade and Cade keep refusing her Quoting that he is Dom and he likes rough sex And yet Marly still wanting him When finally Cade giving in and agree to claim Marly, Marly is the one push Cade away Why shrug I dont know either So thats when I stop reading Its so bad The dialog is also very frustrating DNF

    4 stars Romantic Suspense Erotica BDSM M nageThis is a bit tough to review because I had sort of a love hate thing going on with this bookhated the characters but loved the smokin hot sex I think I tend to judge Lora Leigh s books differently than those by other romance authors though because I know going in that her male leads are usually angst laden, dominating, uber alpha a holes whether they re military, cowboys, or cops with troubled pasts and tortured souls, but she writes such e 4 stars Romantic Suspense Erotica BDSM M nageThis is a bit tough to review because I had sort of a love hate thing going on with this bookhated the characters but loved the smokin hot sex I think I tend to judge Lora Leigh s books differently than those by other romance authors though because I know going in that her male leads are usually angst laden, dominating, uber alpha a holes whether they re military, cowboys, or cops with troubled pasts and tortured souls, but she writes such engrossing stories and scorch the pages hot sex scenes that I still enjoy and love her books regardless of whether or not I even like the characters.That being said, Marly s Choice really pushed my ick factor limit and both Cade and Marly s characters severely tried my patience.Marly s lusted and supposedly lovedrolling my eyes Cade August since she came to live with him and his brothers on their ranch when she was twelve Now that s she s 20 and finally a woman rolling my eyes again , she decides that she s tired of him treating her like his niece which she is and an immature girl which she is and sets out to seduce him and make him hers in every way, once and for all Cade lusts and burns for Marly like no other woman ever before, but he s got some deep, dark secret in his past that makes it impossible for him to be caring, gentle, or to love anyone Since he can t be what an innocent, virgin like her needs emotionally, he makes himself deny and resist her attempts at a physical relationship, yet he refuses to allow her to be with anyone else either Eventually he realizes that resistance is futile, but unless she can completely submit to his rough, dominating, demanding ways in the bedroom and take everything he has to give her without question, then he ll have to let her go One of his requirements is that she accept a m nage relationship with his brothers oh, and maybe some other women at some point too , but of course, it s her choice Talk about dysfunction junction, what s your dysfunction I mean, if people want to freely engage in a m nage, then have a damn m nage, but the whole I have to because I m emotionally scarred and the demanding my woman better accept my need to share her with my brothers or else because otherwise it means she really doesn t love me thing is just silly and lame Ahhhcounseling anybody I think every one of the main characters in this book Cade, Marly, Brock, and Sam were in need of some major therapy instead of hiding from their traumatic pasts and masking their emotional pain with intense sex But hey, what do I know Besides, it s still really hot Why does Marly love Cade anyway Because he did a humanly decent thing and gave her shelter when her mother abandoned Marly, in the care of Cade and his brothers Sam and Brock, in order to protect her from her molesting step father Because he waited until she was 16 to start lusting after her in full and then waited until she was 20 to take and claim her innocence I mean, I usually don t mind age differences between the H H in romance and enjoy the whole you re like a kid sister theme I even have a shelf for it , but Cade was practically her step uncle and raised her since she was a 12 year old girl, so it s a little bit icky And honestly, I don t know why anyone would love, or even like, either one of them because Cade is a cold, mean, arrogant, selfish, demanding, and controlling brute and Marly is na ve, childish, moody, and whiny.So, why did I still rate it 4 stars Because even though the characters are super annoying, the story although eye roll inducing at times completely sucked me in, the sex scenes are burn your fingertips hot, and it s a smutastic treat I would sort of equate this to a bad Skinamax flick that you stay up into the wee hours of the night watching, even though it s so awful that you can t help but wonder how the heck it got made in the first place, yet you can t seem to change the channel And since this ended without complete resolution for the characters, I definitely have to read the other two books in the Men of August series to get Brock and Sam s stories and to find out what happens with the crazy, horny, dysfunctional August clan

    Let me begin by stating this fact The WTFery is strong with this one This is not the kind of book where you think to yourself, What a finely drawn depiction of life and love No this is the kind of book where the characters are crazy, the situations are crazy, and yet you suspend your disbelief and continue reading because the sexy times are so awesome And there are sexy times on pretty much every other page YAY Honestly, I love WTFery in erotic romance, and I love emotionally unstable an Let me begin by stating this fact The WTFery is strong with this one This is not the kind of book where you think to yourself, What a finely drawn depiction of life and love No this is the kind of book where the characters are crazy, the situations are crazy, and yet you suspend your disbelief and continue reading because the sexy times are so awesome And there are sexy times on pretty much every other page YAY Honestly, I love WTFery in erotic romance, and I love emotionally unstable and crazy characters so I was ready for an awesome read About 55% in I was like, this is five stars all the way HELL YEAH Sadly, the second half of the book let me down It was like having really really really ultra hot foreplay, but then the guy whips it out and it s pencil sized Oh, man Let me explain The basic premise is that you have an extremely mentally damaged hero, Cade, and an extremely damaged, child abused heroine named Marly They desperately want each other YAY Cade is obsessed with taking women anally, and pounding them for hours with his big c k because he s so animalistically insatiable OMG, YESSS ALSO, because of his psychological damage, he has to share these women he s tearing up with his two brothers OMG, I M GOING TO ORGASM According to Cade, none of this is negotiable Annabel passes out from arousal.Around 55% on my kindle file, Cade warns Marly I ll f ck you there ass Is that what you want, Marly And it won t stop there There will be no going back to school, no girlish nights out, no flirting with other men, nothing but me f cking you day after day, night after night And a little further along I don t accept no for an answer when I want something sexually, baby I told you I was rough, and I meant it And a little later, some gossip Marly overheard about him She says he goes crazy if she resists something he wants Makes her take him and makes her love it He loves it when she fights him She says it makes him harder, makes him ride her forever Like an animal Okay, by that point I had to literally change my panties I cannot imagine a sexier,f ed up premise than this hero going batdong crazy on her in bed, tearing her anus up night after night after night, making her do stuff she doesn t want to do until she likes it, making her take all his brothers and then tenderly holding her and soothing her to sleep each night because, of course, he loves her so much I was like, this is gonna be the best, sexiest, most f cked up book EVAH The problem is, after we re made hot by these idea, after the author seems to promise us crazy pounding anal f ckfests and forced night long sextravaganzas, and an August brother crammed in every Marly hole, all we really get is a lot of cunnilingus and one very short, tame m nage scene at the end with the brothers where, sadly, all three holes are not utilized at once in a brutal f ckfest but inof a we don t wanna hurt you, oh hey lay back and lemme just lick yer pussy somekind of interlude Cade also lets Marly walk all over him which completely negates all the stuff he keeps spouting about his command and his insatiability Worse, he threatens to punish her a few times, and I think, ooh, that will be hot and sexy but we never get a chance to see him punish her for anything Yeah, thanks for the tease Why bring it up if there s not going to be any punishment action To me, Cade started to ring false, almost like an editor made her soften him up after the fact so he would haveuniversal appeal It was just a let down It made me sad.It was kind of the same let down with the villain plot There s all this build up to a huge showdown and possible violence and craziness, but then the villain is actually confronted and taken down in a very short, kind of cutesy couple paragraphs I almost missed the whole thing, it happened so quickly and casually Not that you read this kind of book for the plot, but it felt like a missed opportunity for a powerful and dramatic scene I felt like the author started with a vision for this book, but due to some outside pressure, perhaps, she decided to tone it down, so the book went out with a whimper rather than a scream The finale sex scene was a whimper, the plot climax was a whimper My reader climax unachieved.With that said, the author is great at writing sex She is dirty, dirty, dirty YAY The sex scenes were copious and full of fluids, heaving, thrusting, and other such explicit pleasures There was a lot of insertion of butt plugs and dildos which was very hot There was very fucked up family dynamics and even some moments of extreme squickiness Yes, these are good things when you have consensually signed on for a WTF read That s why I gave this book four stars I agreed to this craziness, and Ms Leigh delivered to a point.But honestly, I wish she had followed through on Cade s announcements that he was crazy and anal obsessed and that he d ride her forever, rather than just having him going down on her half the time I wish the author had those three brothers piling on Marly through scene after scene the way I wanted, rather than the very tentative m nage scene at the end I wish the author had just GONE THERE after she set it up in such an exciting way So my four stars areor less for the POTENTIAL she set up in this book, and my excitement early on at where this book might go Just because the book didn t get there doesn t mean I didn t get a thrill thinking about the possibilities I will always remember the Cade Marly brothers m nage of MY fantasies, even if I didn t get to experience them in this book

    I thought this book was abuse The boys were her stepbrothers and they felt they were protecting her from her father who wanted to abuse her Having said that, how could they justify their actions I thought Cade was a jerk and he never came around enough for me The whole share to make us all feel connected because we had an abusive father riled me up The sex was hot, but too abusive for my taste Cade ran hot and cold knowing he was going to share her, but chastising her when she was comfo I thought this book was abuse The boys were her stepbrothers and they felt they were protecting her from her father who wanted to abuse her Having said that, how could they justify their actions I thought Cade was a jerk and he never came around enough for me The whole share to make us all feel connected because we had an abusive father riled me up The sex was hot, but too abusive for my taste Cade ran hot and cold knowing he was going to share her, but chastising her when she was comforting one of the brothers in the hospital bed Having her give him oral sex in the barn stall then calling her a whore Just left me cold

    I m glad I read this expecting it to be horrendously written with skeevy sex because I had a blast for the most part Zosia s reviews of the Nauti series really did me a favor because I could kick my feet up and enjoy As a result, I didn t get hung up on all the damn yous and souls and waxed beef curtains, although I did discover that harsh and bit out are just as ill used by La Leigh.But I now see why Leigh is such a guilty pleasure, because published Godawfulness really doesn t get be I m glad I read this expecting it to be horrendously written with skeevy sex because I had a blast for the most part Zosia s reviews of the Nauti series really did me a favor because I could kick my feet up and enjoy As a result, I didn t get hung up on all the damn yous and souls and waxed beef curtains, although I did discover that harsh and bit out are just as ill used by La Leigh.But I now see why Leigh is such a guilty pleasure, because published Godawfulness really doesn t get better than this The sex wasn t hot I seem to be in the minority on that , the plot was inept and only there to make this technically erotica instead of flat out porn, and the characters were so OTT and one note that I honestly couldn t believe what I was reading Even so, while the hilarious stuff was epic, the blah stuff was really blah I d love to have given it 5 stars for all the funneh, but it didn t have THAT many ha has.Will I read anyby this absurdly prolific and unedited stream of consciousness self dervative porn queen Perhaps Probably by the time I pick up another one, she ll have written 20books and it won t matter which one I pick up because they ll all be the same Until then, I ll treasure these past 3 days of frequent status updates and the use of Awesome Smiley to convey my giddy delight.There s always something to be learned from every book La Leigh has taught me that an empty orifice is a lonely orifice, as well as the valuable psychotherapy advice that fraternal bonds can be reaffirmed by having your dick rub against your bro s with only an adopted niece s butt membrane separating them.Otherwise, it s just gay

    Lora Leigh s readers are accustomed to intense characters and plots filled with nuance and psychological depth The Men of August series doesn t disappoint In fact, this series is psychologically darker than most of Leigh s stories There are many erotic scenes, but this series is much deeper.Marly s Choice could have been penned a la Diana Palmer the classic theme of guardian and virginal ward but Cade August is not like Palmer s brooding but honorable heroes Cade August has two younger b Lora Leigh s readers are accustomed to intense characters and plots filled with nuance and psychological depth The Men of August series doesn t disappoint In fact, this series is psychologically darker than most of Leigh s stories There are many erotic scenes, but this series is much deeper.Marly s Choice could have been penned a la Diana Palmer the classic theme of guardian and virginal ward but Cade August is not like Palmer s brooding but honorable heroes Cade August has two younger brothers And like men who ve been together through the worst imaginable combat, these three men have bonded Not because they are brothers, but because of their shared memories.They do share their women andthan anything, they want to share the young woman that the three of them raised through her adolescence because they all love Marly.Marly s Choice hints at the causes for their sexuality, but doesn t tell the whole story It reveals the character of the August brothers and Marly, which I think is important when you see how she responds to the addition of Sarah in Sarah s Seduction.There is an element of suspense throughout as Marly is being stalked That problem is quickly resolved near the end or so it seems.The title for this book should probably be Marly s Choice Men of August, Part 1 Never before have I seen a series that a must be read in order and b must be read in its entirety to truly be appreciated and understood with an exception for August Heat in the Twelve Quickies of Christmas anthology that book just gives us an HEA epilogue.I recommend getting all three books Marly s Choice, Sarah s Seduction, and Heather s Gift and reading them back to back because once you ve read Marly s Choice, you ll want to know the rest of the story

    This book was hot I think that Cade is my least favorite brother He was so obnoxious and arrogant he was getting on my last nerve I did like Marly She knew what she wanted and went after it I also liked that she stood her ground when she did not agree with Cade.

    I love M F M books but this one just didn t do it for me. I never got a real feel for the characters in this book as in most erotic books One of the borthers Brock he is like a ghost in this book he is there but you never hear form him just a few lines even in the sex. What I disliked most is when a woman says no even though she still feels like having sex no is no, so I felt like this book really borderlines she keep saying no and he keep telling her she wants it and she end up doing it.

I never got the feel for romance in this book I know this is a sex book but most I have read I have felt it not this one I also have heathers gift sams book.I looked through it I will say these boys share all the women so If your one for that this set if totaly for you.

    What a disappointment With all of that erotic promising a very steamy and BDSM culture, this book turns out to be disappointment The pull and push between Carly and Cade is so annoying that I feel I was watching a very very bad soap opera Marly obsessed with Cade He is her first crush and first love When Marly gets older she throws herself to Cade and Cade keep refusing her Quoting that he is Dom and he likes rough sex And yet Marly still wanting him When finally Cade giving in and agree What a disappointment With all of that erotic promising a very steamy and BDSM culture, this book turns out to be disappointment The pull and push between Carly and Cade is so annoying that I feel I was watching a very very bad soap opera Marly obsessed with Cade He is her first crush and first love When Marly gets older she throws herself to Cade and Cade keep refusing her Quoting that he is Dom and he likes rough sex And yet Marly still wanting him When finally Cade giving in and agree to claim Marly, Marly is the one push Cade away Why shrug I dont know either So thats when I stop reading Its so bad The dialog is also very frustrating DNF
