As the co-owner of Mostly Romance bookshop, divorcee Kate Winthrop, has plenty to keep herself occupied, including two young lodgers, Sean, a musical maestro, and bad boy, Joe. Now, I'm no mathematician but one woman, two men and the title of this book clearly adds up to a ménages á trois!

Determined to make both boys happy, for as long as possible, Kate enjoys giving and receiving many hours of rampant sex. She wants nothing more than the good times to roll for all three of them. Nevertheless, when a duet turns into a trio, life can get complicated, and that dreaded F word - 'friction' can cause havoc, just like carpet burns. Isn't there always someone getting more than their fare share of the action? With this in mind, Kate begins to wonder how long it will be before one of them gets hurt. It is already too late to go back to being just housemates, not that she wants to.

Besides the juicy bits, I followed the trio's emotional turmoil, and read through the pages with a brisk, upbeat tempo. Like Kate, I found myself eager to discover what the musical climax would hold, and if naughty boy Joe's overture would survive the final encore.

This is the first of many of Emma Holly's books that Black Lace have re-released due to their popularity, and now I can see why. Among many aspects of this intriguing story, I give top marks for the sexual tension during their BDSM play, which is both erotic and satisfying to read. Lets just say that this story whet more than just my appetite to read further books by this talented, prolific author's work. Heaps better than carpet burns any day!
