An interesting question is posed in this book: are the fantasies that fuel our imaginations as we read romance novels as good as we hope when they are fulfilled? Amber is living a life that she finds unrewarding; difficulties with her family and her desire to improve her sister’s life leave her little time for personal pursuits and even less for a relationship. She escapes and finds her own moments of happiness via her romance novels where she can imagine herself the heroines she so admires, not the woman in dull clothes working too much overtime without a relationship.
Despite restrictions against colleagues starting personal relationships, Ray has always had his eye on Amber, even though he too spends much time caring for his family. Helping her move some items, and seeing the stash of erotic romance novels among her things, he wonders if the quiet Amber isn’t far deeper than she would have let on from her outward businesslike appearance.
When the two start their relationship, things are proceeding well, but Amber’s fantasies learned in her novels have her intrigued and wanting to experience what her heroines do: a ménage. Quiet Ray is more than content with Amber and he alone, their relationship has steamy moments and he is finding just how attractive she is to him. But, being a giving sort, he will do anything for her to keep her.
What is missing from most every romance book that features a ménage scene is the aftermath: the unexpected jealousy, the hurt feelings, and the disappointment when the fantasy doesn’t reach the level of the fantasy. Pepper Anthony does a fabulous job of displaying all of these emotions and questions for both Amber and Ray, and brings the story to a much needed climax.
Well written with the exception of feeling removed and nearly clinical in the point of view during the ménage scenes, this book brings up several different issues and questions for readers who escape into romance and wonder about applying a fictional situation to their own lives. Anthony manages to present realistic concerns into the story without losing the enjoyment of an erotic romance; in fact I thought it enhanced the story with more emotional impact that improved the path to the happily ever after.

Ray Ferris is the first person to discover Amber Jackson’s naughty secret desires. While helping her move some boxes, he stumbles on her stash of erotic romances featuring ménages. Despite a strict company policy prohibiting co-workers from dating, Amber finds herself inexorably drawn to Ray. She’s never been attracted to a white man before, but his intriguing invitation to actually have sex with two men at one time captivates her imagination. When the barriers to their relationship are swept away, will Amber have the courage to finally act out her forbidden fantasy? And if she does, will the experience open doors to a whole new world, or cost her a chance at true love?
