Lover, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marni Mann & Gia Riley is available now!
The attraction was undeniable.
I couldn’t escape him.

I was his.
He was mine.
But he wasn’t my husband.
My once treasured marriage was now flawed and imperfect.
By the time the guilt set in, it was too late.
Reality was trying to keep me away from my obsession.
My husband was that reality.
My obsession was West.
But West was forbidden. Taken. Married.
We were swingers.
It was the perfect arrangement.
Until I fell in love…
Excerpt:After tonight, she’ll know how gorgeous she is, and she’ll know how incredible a man can make her feel. And, when she looks at her husband, she’ll expect more from him. I know shit between them isn’t as hot as what Tilly and I have. Cannon doesn’t look at Piper like he wants to take her clothes off with his teeth and have his mouth live between her legs. He gazes at her like he wants to ask where they’re going to dinner and what movie they’ll see after. There’s a difference between fucking your best friend and someone who actually worships your body. Piper will soon know the latter. And that’s why she’s here. To know what it feels like to be with a man who lusts for her cunt. She picked the right couple to swing with.

Review Copy provided by Author
To be honest, I was a little bit afraid of this book. Based on the blurb, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to embrace the main characters. I just wasn't sure about the potential for them getting together via infidelity.
And I have to admit - there were parts of the story that made me uncomfortable, but there were also parts of Piper's story that I could relate to.
Piper is a heroine that, while I didn't always agree with her choices, I could understand them and could relate to her feeling of not being enough. I liked her and West together and appreciated how he was there for her emotionally when she needed him most.
There were a couple of issues that I felt were not fully resolved in the story, and that's what kept it from being a 5 star read for me. The fact that I was nervous about the book made me enjoy it that much more, but I was left with a few questions that left me wondering. They were mainly subplot issues that in one case could have been left out or should have been addressed and brought to conclusion.
If you are looking for an angsty, sexy, unconventional romance then this would be one for you!
