I have a new author to add to my very brief favorite author list. It was quite enjoyable to listen to this book because it focused on 3 middle-age (mid 30s to around age 50) characters (Joe, A.J./Ariel Jane, Brent) with various life experiences, good and bad. They were traveling farm workers; Brent was a boss farm worker. And the story shared the view of all 3. The story is about all 3 of them getting together, of course. So there was plenty of sex and many uses of the word “c*nt.” So if you have a problem with that, this is so not the book for you. Though this is erotica, I think the explicitness of the sex scenes were somewhere in the mid-range. I’ve heard much rawer (if that’s a word), much more detailed sex scenes. As such, the author did a good job of providing a story with the sex. It’s not a sex-focused or sex-only story. That’s part of what made this a more mature erotica story along with focusing on more mature people & their experiences. Yes, they want to have sex and seek opportunities to do that, but there are more thoughtful reasons for this, which are elucidated. And all of this was told well. Though the story wasn’t new, exactly, it’s telling didn’t seem old-hat or repetitive. There was also no inventiveness in the sex, but the journey to their sexual encounters was a different and more thoughtful journey and struggle, to some degree. The sex scenes include m/m and m/m/f. And details were not circumscribed for those who might be uncomfortable with this form of sex and love. I hope that more books by this author will become available on Audible.
The narrator did a good job, though there was little difference in the male voices. Still, it didn’t detract from the storytelling at all.

Brent Anderson runs a farming operation. Brent and his crew travel from place to place completing specialty farming jobs. Things are getting a little cramped in the trailer since AJ Pender joined the crew. Actually, to tell the truth, the sexual tension was already pretty strong between Brent and his best friend, Joe, before AJ arrived, but now that the sexy siren has come aboard the sexual tension is downright painful.
Joe has been trying to get in Brent's pants for years. He constantly bates him but Brent has always refused his overt advances. Then the beautiful AJ joined their farming crew and all he can think of is having them both. However, Joe isn't interest in anything permanent. He's cool with having sex with his best friend and the new girl but he doesn't want a relationship.
AJ Pender didn't know what she was getting herself into when she joined Brent Anderson's crew. It's hard enough being a woman in a male dominated field but to have a crush on your gay boss and his boyfriend, well, that is just downright stupid on her part.
When the heat becomes too much for these three, passion ignites an insane blaze of sexual fire. But will their fierce connection be enough to keep them together or will their past doubts and intense hurts have them running for the nearest cover?
Carnal Compromise is a vivacious, hot-as-hell romance. If you're not careful these three will leave you with third degree burns from flipping the pages. I like all three characters but Joe is a standout because of his complex nature and his secrets. His secrets explain a lot about his attitude and behavior throughout Carnal Compromise. I would have liked to learn his secrets sooner so I wouldn't have felt the need to throw something at him so often. AJ is a fiery woman who has never known anything to be easy, and her relationship with Brent and Joe is no exception. AJ has serious self confidence issues and I love that it is addressed in a great way. I found Brent to be adorable. He knows what he wants but is afraid of what will happen when he gets it. Well, he definitely finds out! Carnal Compromise is sinfully delicious and hauntingly humorous. Robin L. Rotham walks all over hot button issues and delivers a Carnal Compromise you won't soon forget.
CJ Bloom was great with the delivery of the story. I would Audible to have more from this author.
