Wicked Shores, Book 1
Following a nasty breakup with her ex, Kayla English is eager to get her erotic writing mojo back on track. Except progress on her current book has flatlined, right along with her belief in happily-ever-after.
Solution? Two weeks of solitude in the Florida sun thanks to some friends’ generous offer to house-sit their place on the beach. She didn’t count on having roommates—or on getting the sexiest peepshow of her life.
Seven years after an intimate encounter rocked their worlds, business partners Tyler Bishop and Gibb Masters have kept things strictly in the friend zone. A recent storm has left them homeless, though. They figure moving into Ty’s parents’ place is preferable to roughing it elsewhere, even if it means resisting the temptation to slip between the sheets with Kayla…and each other.
As the days heat up, so does their three-way attraction. But when emotions run deeper than any of them expect, three wary hearts must decide if it’s worth the risk to write their own HEA.
Warning: This book brings the dirty. We’re talking dirty sex in an outdoor shower, on a boat, and on the kitchen counter with a dirty-mouthed Casanova. In other words, all the good stuff with a side of glow-in-the-dark body paint.
What a great start to a new series!
You will definitely need to cool off after you read this one.
Poor Kayla has been dumped by her finance and snubbed by her mother when it is found out that Kay writes erotic stories. Trying recover and recoup she goes to Florida to be with her BFF and stay at her BFF’s parents beach house. Little does she know that Ty and Gibb are staying there too, the two of these guys have been Kayla’s crush for years. WOW, the scene where Kayla sees Ty again for the first time in years, is a doozy, naked man outdoor shower….need I say more??? It is quite obvious the attraction between the three of them, including between Ty and Gibb. They had an encounter years ago that kind of shocked them and then they locked that night away and never talked about it again. Kayla coming back is the catalyst in bringing the men together romantically and making them a happy triad.
I loved all the characters for different reasons, Ty for his dirty, dirty mouth ;), Kayla for her insecurities and loving nature, and Gibb for his getting up off the ground and learning to love and trust again. Jodi’s dialog in this story is superb, I mean Ty’s dialog in and out of the bedroom are deliciously dirty. Jodi, was very creative with where the characters got intimate, loved the glow-in-the-dark painting session and the outdoor shower scene, and oh, never mind read it for yourself and see what I mean. As always Jodi’s story telling is first rate.
I really connected with the characters and cannot wait to read the next in the series!
