Firstly let me say, as the title of the book suggests 'Sharing' Hailey, this is an Adult Only book and, in my opinion, should have been put in the Erotica section.
Now, that said, I thought this was a touching love story about Hailey who loves 2 handsome sexy men Mark and Tony but she has known them all her life as they are her brother's best friends and she doesn't want to complicate things or lose their friendship. Then the lucky girl finds out that they are both interested in her too but the only problem is her ex boyfriend has other plans. There was lots of hot sex scenes but they were touching and romantic and well placed in the story.
Worth my credit? Absolutely Yes - but there's a big BUT - if you don't like the steamy sexy romance novels then this isn't for you.

You'd think by the cover and blurb that you'd be looking at something in the erotica category but honestly it could have been more raunchy.
More of a good romance with some really good intimate scenes, not even close to the dark side as it could have been. Definitely won't raise a decent blush while one is on public transport.
A nice feel good read.

What disappointed you about Sharing Hailey?
Many missed opportunities in this story. Listened to lots of books in this genre, and this severely lacked character development. I struggled to finish the book and it was full of Hailey being weak, pathetic, and void of any qualities that would explain why these two men were apparently so enamoured with her.
The men were.. well, nothing ..no character, no development, just vague concepts of men (distinguishable from each other only by their professions - and giving a job title isn't the same as developing an understanding of a character and their personalities).
The sex isn't even that great. Considering it's a book about ménage, it all seemed boring and tame and didn't involve any emotional build up. You want to read (or listen to) a story and be rooting for them, as it's the journey of them getting there that's exciting after all. Alas, no. I was rooting for the book to finish so I could get to the next one in my library. I always try to finish a book to give it a chance to improve, but my optimism didn't pay off at all. In fact the book got steadily worse.
There's enough on paper when the plot line is sketched out that it should be full of excitement and drama and a blossoming relationship - but it severely missed the mark.
I want to finish a story feeling invested in the people, and falling a little in love with them all. This is a poor imitation of many books out there that achieve this with much more success.
What was most disappointing about Samantha Ann King’s story?
The complete lack of character development, and how unlikeable the female lead character was
What about Alexandra R. Josephs’s performance did you like?
She was fine. Wouldn't search her out, but wouldn't put me off. She sounded a bit pathetic at times, but that was more because of the story and not the narrator's fault.
What character would you cut from Sharing Hailey?
If only there was enough character development in there to be able to cut one out! If I had to choose, I'd cut the female main character, Hailey, as she's a weak unlikeable bore who is unlikely to attract he attention of two apparently amazing men.
Any additional comments?
So many books in this genre that are much much better. I'd recommend searching the internet for the best ménage books if you want a better one. This isn't worth a credit. Though this book somehow has a ridiculously high rating, but I can't for the life of me imagine why. Maybe it was the first "naughty" book they'd listened to and thought it was good, whereas they just liked the concept of ménage and not the story after all. Certainly a lesson in not trusting ratings!
This was a wonderful story, full of intrigue, romance and a blossoming 3 way relationship, oh and smoking hot sex.
