Okay, I expected basically a Wicked Ties book with 3 men one woman and a whole lot of hotness...just out of the wicked ties world...that isn't what this is.
First off, I have to say, for a book that advertises 3M/1F I expected there to be a whole lot more of actual sex...it didn't happen. Okay, there was a grand finale, but seriously not the hot book I wanted to listen to. The whole book kind of fell flat for me, and disconnected.
Perhaps SB is too use to having the background of other books in the series to fall back on because I felt I was missing something for a lot of this book. There are 3 brothers, 2 are tight and one had to be the grown up so he is a bit disconnected. The two younger one's got into the Dom scene, but that wasn’t really explained. The older one never did, but that wasn't really explained. There were random bits of information thrown about like one having mistresses and paying for their apartment but it was like 2 sentences, why bother talking about it, and she never even made an appearance. Very random things just thrown in the story for no apparent reason.
Then you get to the actual story...and you have to throw common sense out the window, and I hate that! The idea that 3 brothers want one girl...um, okay a bit odd, but I'll go there...but the female lead never once questioned that she would be with ALL three guys? Wouldn't your average girl be saying, hum, wonder which guy will eventually ask me out, but no she had designs on all three from the start, oh and of course she is a virgin with no experience what so ever but although we suffer through HOURS of her inner monologue never once does it come up that she should try for just ONE of them, and not all three....like I said suspend reality.
I liked the narrator though, so THAT was a shinning spot! I wouldn't buy this book though, or even use a credit, maybe worth it if it makes it to the $4.95 sale, but nothing else.

This was a good story. I do think things seemed rather rushed though and wish there had been more buildup.
Hannah is sweet but has some spunk as well. She's been the secretary of Gavin for a year and is on friendly terms with all 3 brothers, Gavin, Slade, and Dex. She's fallen in love with all 3 but is very inexperienced and doesn't realize they're attracted to her. When she discovers she has a stalker she doesn't tell them in an effort to be independent and no bother them. When the brothers find out, they don't take it well.
Gavin, Slade, and Dex are brothers and own an oil company. Gavin is the eldest and rather serious. Because of past issues, he pulls himself back from Hannah, feeling he doesn't deserve her. Next in line is Slade who is laid back and usually the diplomat. Dex is the youngest, only a few months younger than Slade. He's illegitimate and grew up in the Foster care system until he was 17 and his brothers found him and brought him home. The brothers love each other but don't always get along the best. Slade and Dex have shared women before and intend to get Hannah between them, hoping to bring Gavin in as well.
When the brothers find out about Hannah's stalker they decide to take her up to their location in Alaska for her safety under the pretense of business. When she refuses to go for business purposes they kidnap her. TBH, none of the brothers handle things very well and all hurt/piss off Hannah. I really wish we'd have gotten more buildup because the beginning pretty much jumps in to things. Others from their company end up coming to Alaska as well and her stalker is in the group. Between dealing with the stalker and the halting start of the relationship between Hannah and the brothers the story doesn't lag. I actually wish it was a little longer (the story takes place over a couple days) because most of what we see is in strife. There are some good times but very little that's settled (except in the epilogue).
Overall this was a good story but I'm not sure if I'll continue with the series.
*note - The narrator was good but she seemed to talk a little slower than I'd prefer and sometimes seemed to over-enunciate words. It wasn't horrible though.
