Way to go, Zane thus being the younger bro s name, the stubborn fucker is Seth And well, after the prospect of losing her forever, the idea becomes unbearable and Seth finally pulls his head out of his assand gives this unconventional relationship a chanceI m not sure of anything but the fact that I love her and that we re both miserable without her There has to be a way to make this work, and I want to find it. And as Cher singsBaby, it s all or nothing nowI don t wanna run and I can t hideThank fuck for small favorslol

    Brazen is the first in Queen of the menage Maya Banks Brazen series Her sex scenes are very erotic and her characters are very tortured and normally I like that But there was just something about this one that kept needling at me and kept me from enjoying it as much as her other books.Brothers Seth and Zane are in the big city bar after a successful presentation for their ranch when they are approached by a very young woman offering one of them sex After hustling her out of the bar and th Brazen is the first in Queen of the menage Maya Banks Brazen series Her sex scenes are very erotic and her characters are very tortured and normally I like that But there was just something about this one that kept needling at me and kept me from enjoying it as much as her other books.Brothers Seth and Zane are in the big city bar after a successful presentation for their ranch when they are approached by a very young woman offering one of them sex After hustling her out of the bar and the out of the sight of her pimp, they take her for some much needed sustenance and get the whole story from the sixteen year old with nowhere to go Just like that, Jasmine becomes a part of their life They take her to their ranch, hire a housekeeper mother figure, and work to erase the shadows from Jasmine s eyes.Several years later, and after a year in Paris away from the ranch and Seth and Zane, Jasmine is ready to return Her time away was good for her and hopefully, now, the boys will see her as the woman she is instead of the girl they rescued Jasmine wants that very much as she loves BOTH of themas a woman loves But Jasmine will need all her wiles and all her patience to woo both men into a sharing relationship.So Yes, they both love herTHAT way and yes, the brothers have a hard time with the thought of sharing even though they ve participated in threesomes before But that was for fun, not for life and Seth especially isn t sure he can accept a situation like what Jasmine is asking for.Maybe what bothered me about this one is that Jasmine is obviously the aggressor in this relationship Why does that bug me I honestly have no ideabut it does The younger brother is quick to fall to her seductions, but the older brother Seth, the authority figure and responsible caretaker, has some very serious issues with Jasmine I guess I felt that Jasmine didn t give his thoughts the serious contemplation they deserved Or maybe it was because I felt she pretty much forced herself on himbut either way, it left me irritated and little appalled However, it all worked out and the three all get their HEA and the book was pretty darn hot I m not sorry I read it and maybe I just need to open my mind a bitand this book can help with that It s not one for my keeper shelf, but it wasn t a wall banger either

    Fuck yeah, now we re talkingI m a pretty persistant fish and combined with my book must be finished OCD, sometimes, I m pretty much fucked to begin with, but most of the time, I provoke lady luck and she shows me the mercy in letting me enjoy fully in these threesome gems i tend to walk right into And I simply can t believe that the same author wrote this and the previous smutt shit I was disappointed withSo, I ll tell you thisIt actually has a fuckin plot fist pums air An Fuck yeah, now we re talkingI m a pretty persistant fish and combined with my book must be finished OCD, sometimes, I m pretty much fucked to begin with, but most of the time, I provoke lady luck and she shows me the mercy in letting me enjoy fully in these threesome gems i tend to walk right into And I simply can t believe that the same author wrote this and the previous smutt shit I was disappointed withSo, I ll tell you thisIt actually has a fuckin plot fist pums air And a damn fine characterisation and emotional settings too, imagine that And what was so thrilling with this story is the fact that the roles are reversed this time It aint men that need to convince the woman she s the one for them, it s her that needs to show these two men that she loves them both and can t be without themIt s so simpleShe just wants them to love her backand she s damn fine showing them tooAnd they are brothers, very stubborn fuckers, who actually do love herbut one of them is having some major issues with the whole sharing conceptand the fact that he can t accept only a half of her heartSelfish bastard, that oneSo what the smartass does He hurts her, of coursewhat elsebut then his younger brother sets him straight I don t know a lot about love or what it s supposed to mean I don t know how it works for other people I don t really care What I do know, is that I love her And that means my love doesn t come with a set of conditions Does it bother me to know she loves you and probably always will No Because she loves me, too I m not threatened by that because I know she d never do anything to hurt me Could I share her with you If my choices were having her whole and happy, sparkling and sharing her with you or having a part of her, knowing she d never completely shine and be whole but having her all to myself, then I wouldn t even have to think about it Because loving her means I want her happy I want the best for her I don t ever want to have any part in making her sad. Way to go, Zane thus being the younger bro s name, the stubborn fucker is Seth And well, after the prospect of losing her forever, the idea becomes unbearable and Seth finally pulls his head out of his assand gives this unconventional relationship a chanceI m not sure of anything but the fact that I love her and that we re both miserable without her There has to be a way to make this work, and I want to find it. And as Cher singsBaby, it s all or nothing nowI don t wanna run and I can t hideThank fuck for small favorslol

    Ithan love m nage stories and having read other books by this author, which I really enjoyed, was really looking forward to reading this book It s not exactly an awful book just that it failed to pull me into the whole story and the characters So Jasmine runs off to Paris because she doesn t know how to deal being in love with Seth Zane, the two brothers that she has been friends with for years After a year in the city of love, she is ready to face the challenge, flies back to the Tex Ithan love m nage stories and having read other books by this author, which I really enjoyed, was really looking forward to reading this book It s not exactly an awful book just that it failed to pull me into the whole story and the characters So Jasmine runs off to Paris because she doesn t know how to deal being in love with Seth Zane, the two brothers that she has been friends with for years After a year in the city of love, she is ready to face the challenge, flies back to the Texan ranch and confronts them with her secret and how she wants to have a HEA with both because she loves them equally Forget it, says Seth.wow I m in says Zane I kind of liked Zane but Seth, who in a way is the one with the most emotional baggage to overcome, irritated me at times with all this not sharing her with anyone and Jasmine with all her whining and whinging Taking turns inthan just sleeping with the brothers, who spend their time pussy footing around her feelings because,hey she s vulnerable and innocent I so wanted to getinvolved with thembut something kept me from feeling that.Then, when finally get into the threesome act .should Seth Zane feel uncomfortable seeing each other naked what about touching each other on that, is it at all possible that two men are able to make love to a woman together and never ever touch each other I try not to think too much about that when the two men happen to be related in a lot of m nage books.I find it a bit weird but as it states.they never touch or feel each other only the woman in the middle The sex scenes are very well done and being an erotic romance, there are quite a few but somehow seem to fit in with the flow of the story instead of just having sex scenes in every second or third page A good plot, emotional and sexual tension and likeable characters.I would love to know how this relationship will progress and will they have a lasting HEA But, being me, I always want a HEA so I have made it so.they will be happy forever
