#BookReview: Tempted by Two by Portia Da Costa

Tags: Erotica, Contemporary
When executive woman Katie Warren arrives in the picturesque village of Little Marplethorpe for a country holiday, to reassess her life and her future, she doesn't bargain on ending up in a hot three way love affair with a man she's admired from afar... and his gorgeously handsome male partner.

Marcus Dane and Owen Foster are lovers, committed for a lifetime, but they both enjoy the company of women as friends and bedmates too. Encountering Katie at an exhibition of his work, Marcus knows she's just the kind of bold, daring, imaginative woman who'll relish sharing erotic games with Owen and himself.

But what none of the trio expect is that their intense, steamy threesome will quickly deepen into a bond that's a lot more than just simply fabulous sex.

Kay's Review
I have to admit I was tempted by the book title and didn't read much of the blurb before I requested it. But I'm glad I did.

The opening scene has Katie staring at an erotic painting of a ménage a trois and fantasising about being the woman in the love sandwich. Marcus (the painter and one of the men in the picture) turns up and seduces her into becoming that woman.

The easy going style of the author makes it easy to let your imagination get lost in the fantasy of this story. I love that there was a contrast between Marcus's bold seducer and Owen's quiet confidence. It was easy to imagine being Katie at certain times and having two men worship your body.

This is a contemporary British story but it had a 90s feel for me, I'm not sure why. I kept picturing scenes from the movie Four Weddings And A Funeral. Also the reference to Midsomer Murders helped me picture the village scenes.

The sex scenes are plentiful and tastefully done which I found refreshing especially when so many erotic stories these days are so explicit. This story is more sensually descriptive and right up my street.

I loved the underlying conflict of this story. How do two people who obviously love each other get to love a third and form the perfect trifecta? There were moments were Katie felt like the odd third wheel and I felt her pain and discomfort too. I guess for me this was one issue that wasn't resolved conclusively for me.

Oh, don't get me wrong. There is a happy for now resolution and I guess for an erotica novella, it works. But I wanted more intensity and would have liked an epilogue to show all the characters living happily together.

Overall this is an enjoyable story perfect for when you're looking for a quick read. If you enjoy erotica, then you'll enjoy this.
