Scandalous by Karen Erickson (Guest Review by Simone)

She always got anything she wanted . . .

Playing with Fire 3

A teenage crush on her big brother’s boyfriend. It was one of the few times in her spoiled-little-sister life that Alexa had to swallow the word “no”. She got over it, or she thought she had-until her brother’s wedding brings Eric back into her life, as flirty and fun as ever. It never mattered to her that he’s gay. Attraction is attraction.

One illicit kiss, and their reconnection blows her mind and rekindles girlish hopes. Then he sets her away from him and runs like hell.

Eric can’t believe that a woman’s touch arouses him. Not just any woman, but sweet Alexa, and he can’t help but want more. Desperate to come clean, he confesses all to his steady boyfriend, Brandon, expecting anger. But Brandon’s intrigued. He wants to meet the woman who’s tied Eric up in knots. With luck, maybe she’ll relight the spark between them.

Alexa may have lost her chance with Eric, but the consolation prize-a fling with him and Brandon, is too tempting to resist. She never expected to love both men, or to secretly yearn to belong to the one who commands her body like no other . . .

Warning: Contains m/m sex, m/f/m sex, three people confused and in love, a little bit of punishment, a lot of dirty talk and a lot of naughty sex.


Having a crush on your brother’s friend. Bad. Having a crush on your brother’s boyfriend? Bad, bad, bad. That’s the idea behind Scandalous, a juicy story about Alexa who finally meets up with her brother’s ex-boyfriend at her brother’s wedding. Things heat up quickly (thankfully) as Alexa and Eric realize there is mutual interest. Though it’s kind of confusing for Eric because he’s still gay and in a relationship. But what the hell? Let’s go with it.

He introduces Alexa to his boyfriend, Brandon and the three quickly become involved with each other. People, it’s HOT! Watching these two men put on a show for Alexa is simply beautiful. And Brandon’s no-nonsense take charge attitude had me rather excitable. It was the kind of turn on in a book I was looking for.  That lucky Alexa right smack in the middle of it with Eric, the careful, sensitive one and Brandon the domineering, macho one. I was seriously jealous of that bitch!

The hot sex aside, Scandalous does have a story which I really liked. Being together as a threesome begins to change the dynamics between each of them.  Eric and Brandon were having issues before Alexa arrived on the scene but now there’s more distance. Brandon, knowing Eric had never been with a woman before, had suggested the whole arrangement out of curiosity hoping it would reignite their passion. But the joke is on Brandon. Having been with men only for the last few years, he’s questioning his growing feelings for Alexa. As for the object of their affection? Alexa gets the best of both worlds but also double the confusion. What’s a horny girl to do?

I didn’t expect to get emotionally tied in to the story. I just loved the premise of a threesome especially when it involves someone who has always been “unattainable”. And honestly nothing is more attractive than two very hot men into each other. I happen to like my smut balanced with a dose of reality on occasion. It does a body good. I say give Scandalous a read and enjoy.
