Cody and Nicole haven't been married long when she starts to hear rumours about his relationship with Everett. The town thinks the two men are too close for comfort; the town is right. We meet Cody and Nicole stuck in a traffic jam in their home town of Macon Valley. Cody convinces Nicole she wants to give him a blow-job (just to pass the time) Nicole agrees, and is quite happily getting down to the job at hand, when they are caught red-handed by Everett, who just happens to be passing by. It is, of course, a complete set up, as both men want to share her. Unfortunately for them, Nicole is completely embarrassed by the whole situation and freaks out. The boys previously had set up a raunchy interlude, for Cody and Nicole, on his desk at work. Nicole, completely lost to passion, didn't spot Everett quite happily masturbating in a doorway, until the last minute. Because she didn't freak out that time they had assumed she was OK with it, thus deciding on this little situation. Of course eventually they get their own way......
I usually really like menage books, but something about this one just made it OK. I think it was the way that Cody was quite willing to keep pushing Nicole, even though he told her he wasn't going to press the issue. He wanted a woman to share with Everett. It didn't matter what she wanted, because their persistance would pay off. I HATE menage books where the other person feels like an added extra to fulfil a sexual fantasy and, unfortunately, I did feel that with this tale. They constantly set her up to get what they wanted; they didn't talk it out, they simply relied on deception and smooth talking. I have to say that some of the dialogue was downright funny (I don't know if it was supposed to be). From Cody referring to his penis as "him" (as in "he wants your mouth" etc) to the notion that Cody and Everett had had a conversation to discuss "who got what hole" (I said a big "ewwww" at this point), the dialogue just didn't do it for me. I felt that the only reason that Nicole was there was to service the pair of them; I didn't get any real feelings of love. If this was just an erotic book this wouldn't have bothered me so much but these were a married couple, heading towards a stable menage. I needed to feel some tenderness and I didn't. The sex scenes were definitely hot, but the lack of emotion left me a little empty.
I didn't hate it, but I wont be reading this short story again.
