LOVE TIMES THREE by Ravenna Tate
Love Times Three 1
She spots a light and knocks on the door of the house, but can’t believe who answers.
She has two unpleasant choices.
Freeze to death in her car, or wait out the storm with Cameron Easton and Alex Gable, the two men who seduced her, and then trashed her career three years ago.
“Snowbound” is the perfect way to spend an evening…figuratively AND literally. Ravenna Tate is a newbie at Evernight Publishing, and she fits in perfectly. She has written a short, sweet, and hot story that will melt your heart as well as your panties.
Nina is completely lost. She’s caught in the middle of a blizzard, and the road is white and dangerous. Her phone and GPS are useless, and she’s close to being forced to spend the night in her car on the side of the road. See approaches a house, and when she knocks, she comes face to face with with an unpleasant (but maybe just a LITTLE pleasant?) memory of her past.
The blurb sums up the story perfectly, so I won’t waste any more time on telling you about it. I’m here to tell you about how perfectly “Snowbound” comes together. I mentioned that this was a short book, so there’s not much time to draw anything out. The three main characters, Nina, Cameron, and Alex, have such an outstanding chemistry. There has been something between them for more than three years, and it’s obvious due to the way Ms. Tate writes their interactions. There is tension, of course, not because of anything THEY have done. They were victims of dishonest colleagues and mixed signals. Once everything is out in the open, we are treated to one of the most loving, romantic, and sexy love scenes I’ve ever read. Cameron and Alex are tender while being dominant, and Nina gives as good as she gets. So, so good. In fact, I went back and re read it a second time.
Since this is a stand alone story, everything wraps up nicely. So nicely, I am sincerely hoping that Ravenna Tate will write a sequel to this one. I’d love to stay in touch with these fantastic characters.
Snowbound is about Nina Santangeles. She is going to her parents’ new house for a New Year’s Eve Party. She has hit rock bottom and trying to face her family. She had one night of heaven with two men she worked with. She loved her job and was shocked to find out they had seduced her and cut her out of a deal they were all working on. She had quit the job and moved to Chicago. There she met Matt. She thought he was the one but like the previous gentlemen he was not. He was already married and had kids. Her family knows all about her ex and she doesn’t know if she can face them. On the way to her parents she winds up in the middle of a huge snow storm and her GPS won’t work. She is lost and can’t see where she is going. She sees a house with a light down a lane and she decides to stop to ask for help. Little does she know Alex and Cameron are in that house? The men she had a hot night with and also had betrayed her.
Alex Gable and Cameron Easton were too handsome men. Alex had initially gone out with Nina on several dates before they decided to all go out together. They had talked her into having a threesome and she discovered the next day they had cut her out of the deal they had been working on. Alex and Cameron had never had a chance to explain to Nina because she quit that day. They didn’t know where to look for her and wished they could have found her.
Nina goes to the house and rings the doorbell. Who answers the door but Cameron?? She is dumbfounded and then learns Alex is there also. They invite her in and because of the snow she winds up staying. This is the chance Alex and Cameron had waited for. They can actually let her know what happened with the deal. They also confess that they want her to move in with them. It is an unconditional relationship but she is considering it. Will she believe their story and give the three of them a chance?? Will she go to work for them?? Yes they have started their own business. You will have to read on to find out the answers and more.
I liked this book. It was attention getting and a fast read. This story was very short but I do like the action in the beginning of the book to get my attention and keep it throughout the story. I liked that Alex and Cameron got their second chance to explain to Nina what really happened. Also I liked that Nina got her second chance at love. Also to work with the men she loved doing what she loves.
I recommend this book.
“It’s okay.” Cameron’s lips nuzzled her neck, and a fresh wave of heat shot through her body. “That’s all behind you now. We’ll help you forget him.”
Alex continued stroking her calves. Nina watched his hands, mesmerized by their soft touch. She willed them to continue up all the way up to her aching pussy. He gently pulled off her tights, holding her gaze with his beautiful eyes. “Have you made love to two men at once since that night?”
“No. That was a first and once-only experience.” Nina bit her lip to keep from crying out. His fingertips on her bare legs sent spasms through her entire body. She was so close to coming all he’d have to do was touch her clit. How could this be real?
She’d dreamed about that night so many times since then, but she’d always pushed away the memories during her waking hours because they were all mixed up with leaving her job the next day.
“Well then, think of this as a belated Christmas present.” Cameron’s tongue flicked over her ear, then traced a line down her neck to her collarbone. He unzipped her dress, and Nina moaned. Alex gently parted her legs and stroked her upper thighs.
Cameron helped her to her feet and she let the dress fall. He smiled as his gaze roamed over her black bra and panties, making her glad she’d chosen this underwear for tonight. What a stroke of luck.
“You’re still absolutely fucking beautiful,” he said softly.
A tiny voice in her head screamed to stop this now, while she still could. Her last ounce of willpower hung on by a thread. She desperately wanted to lose herself in these two and forget everything else, even if just for one night. The horrible things she had believed of them for three years weren’t true, which meant everything had changed. Surely they deserved one more chance, especially on New Year’s Eve.
Cameron stroked her cheek again, his gaze soft and warm, as Alex moved behind her. His erection pressed into the small of her back, and Nina closed her eyes, letting the waves of passion course through her.
“It’s all right,” whispered Alex. “We won’t do anything you don’t want to do. You get to call the shots.”
Alex reached around and cupped her breasts, his fingers teasing her nipples through the satin. Nina moaned, and Cameron took her face in his hands. She opened her eyes as he dipped his head to kiss her. Alex unhooked her bra, and it fell to the floor. He took her breasts again, his strong hands kneading them while his thumbs played with her nipples.
Nina groaned into Cameron’s open mouth as his tongue slid in and out. His lips moved over hers in such a perfect kiss she felt dizzy. Alex’s hands moved to her panties and teased the edges with his fingers until she silently begged him to rip the damn things off already.
Cameron’s lips moved to her neck, over her collarbone, and down to her breasts. His breath was hot against her skin, and his soft kisses left a trail of fire. He took one breast in each hand and raked his teeth over her nipples, sending shockwaves straight to her groin. Nina tangled her fingers in his soft hair and pulled him closer.
Alex slipped a finger inside her panties and ran it over her swollen clit until she whimpered and rocked her hips against him, aching for release. The pressure was unbearable.
“Tell me what you want,” said Alex.
“I want your fingers inside me.”
Cameron looked up and smiled. “And what can I do for you, beautiful Nina?”
“You’re fine right where you are.” She could barely catch her breath, let alone speak.
He fastened his mouth on one nipple, taking as much of her breast into it as he could. Nina held onto his shoulders as waves of dizziness washed over her. She’d never been so aroused in her life. Every memory of that night three years ago came rushing back, but reliving it again was better than all her memories combined.
She didn’t want them to stop, and she didn’t want to think. She only wanted to experience this again.
Alex slid her panties to her ankles then slowly ran his hands back up her legs. She stepped out of them and opened her legs. He massaged her ass, working his fingers in slow circles over her cheeks and puckered opening, until finally he stroked her clit for long, delicious moments before slipping two fingers into her pussy.
Ravenna Tate is my third pen name. I’m also published as Carolyn Rosewood with Evernight Publishing and Siren-BookStrand, and as Tara Rose with Siren-BookStrand. I’ve been writing since I was eight years old, and always knew one day I would be a writer. I read my first romance at age nineteen – Sweet, Savage Love by Rosemary Rogers – and I was hooked. I’ve been writing romance since that time, and was first published in 2011. As of this date, I have 73 books published or under contract between the three pen names.
