Saved by One, Shared by Two by Sylvia Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Honestly, I wasn't sure if this was going to be the book for me. I am not a big fan of the "end of the world" type books, but a quick glance at the blurb held promise, so I thought I would give it a go. According to experts, just one burst from an electromagnetic pulse, also called EMP, would wipe out anything that runs on electrical components ultimately aiding in the break down society as we know it. Doesn't sound so fun, huh? Have you ever thought about what you might do without the modern conveniences we have grown so accustomed to, such as, electricity, transportation and access to clean water and food whenever we desire? Well, Ms. Ryan has the right idea...if society is going to hell in a hand basket, then please Dear GOD hook me up with two fine men...
Tough as nails prison guard, Julia was prepared for an end oft the world type of scenario when the EMP crippled the world, or so she thought. When unforeseen circumstances leave her face down in the dirt and dying, she is SAVED BY ONE handsome stranger named Arden. Once Julia has recovered from her injuries, she busies herself with making Arden's house a home. It is obvious from the beginning that there is a mutual attraction between the two, though they never act on it.
When the gorgeous Ben shows up on their doorstep, he is welcomed with open arms and legs and mouth...not quite that quickly, but he definitely raised the bar on the farm. It was impossible for Julia to deny her attraction to Ben. Julia decides not to act on her feelings for either man as it was obvious that the two were in competition for her affections. Believing that they could not possibly love her and the only reason for their attention was because she was the only female accessible to the, therefore the only option to warm their beds and to slake their sexual desires. After much persuasion, Julia succumbs to their seductions and allows herself to be SHARED BY TWO.
Sylvia Ryan takes a topic that has been done a thousand times before, adds a little spin on it and breathes new life into an otherwise boring story. I thought she did a fantastic job of keeping the characters on a realistic timeline in regards to becoming intimate, especially with respect to introducing the menage to the story. It could have felt cheap and dirty, but it was sweet and hot. This would be a great read for anyone looking for a hot book to read with an entertaining and fresh spin on the end of the world scenario. I can't imagine a better way to spend my days...with two sexy men all to myself!
