Mousy bank employee Christina is left a legacy from her grandmother that consists of two months at an upscale spa. Her grandmother apparently wanted Christina to have a memorable time before she returns to live with her parents, and becomes the proverbial old maid.
However, the luxury spa vacation turns out to be a working ranch, owned by three brothers who agreed to take Christina on as a guest, but none of them seem to know what to do with her. They are good ranchers, but seemingly don’t have any gentlemanly qualities. Rough, tough, and loath to show any emotions, they all grow to love her and crave her body.
But she doesn’t want to choose between them, and feels that they all need her brand of caring for the underdogs of life that they are.
Life on the ranch turns into a ménage a quatre, as all three men share her bed. When she runs away from them, what follows is one of the hottest scenes when they take over the board room at her bank.
In between tearing up the sheets with her men and helping them preserve a herd of wild mustangs from extinction, they solve a mystery that brings them even closer together.
Espino has crafted a likeable bunch of characters, despite their differences, dysfunctional upbringing, and odd lifestyle. Catch Me If You Can is a good late night read.

Most of us know what it’s like to live from paycheck to paycheck and not be able to take a real vacation because life gets in the way. So when you read a book with a subject that we can all relate to in our everyday life it is not hard to be drawn into the plot.
Everyone needs a vacation to remember and Christina Wolfe may end up with the best vacation of her life. Christina comes to life between the pages of the first chapter creating a feeling of kinship with her and making her real in your minds eye. It is great to understand and share in her feelings on many things, such as not wanting to disappoint her dead grandmother who planned a vacation for her. Her rambling feeling on the trip to her vacation spot -- her dread to return home after the holiday is over to a job she hates and the every day stress of the big city life.
Straight-laced bank teller Christina is not prepared for the vacation that Gram’s had plans for her. When author Stacey Espino works her erotic magic by introducing the brothers Noah, Jake and James things really pick up and the plot thickens as they learn what the most important things are in life and learn to live life to the fullest.
Three brothers and two months of vacation makes for some very hot sex scenes and believe me Ms. Espino does not skimp on the details or cut corners in the telling of this story. I do have to add that the boys do not get along and have a lot of personal problems so you can be sure of some alpha male conflict between the three over Christina and their individual issues with her.
There are a few editing errors but nothing that takes away from the story itself and may have been corrected since I got my copy. Nevertheless, if you want a book that will jump-start your libido then Catch Me If You Can is the book for you. Good plot, yummy sex scenes, and characters that jump out at you and seem so real. I am glad I was able to add this one to my library and enjoyed reading it.

As I attempt to sort through ménage books to find something realistic and to my liking, I stumbled across one of popular author Stacey Espino’s cowboy books. Now, I have never really understood the cowboy thing—I know it’s a popular trope, particularly with ménage authors, but it has never resonated with me one way or another. This wasn’t the first cowboy ménage I read, but it was the first I read and, for the most part, enjoyed.
One notable thing I can say is Ms. Espino’s writing has certainly strengthened since the last book I read. The sex is hot, as one might imagine, and the premise is interesting enough to keep you in the story as well as keep the numerous characters straight. I suppose the one thing I didn’t completely buy was Christina—I never understood why she had three men eating out of her hand, or what was so special about her to make them want to share her. Having said that, I very much appreciated the fact that the brothers, unlike many other ménage books, weren’t looking for a nice girl to split between them; they each wanted her to themselves, and though the relationship that blossomed wasn’t ideal, it was something they could accept.
In terms of “do I think this is realistic?”, I’m likely to say no…but Ms. Espino reminded me with this novella that if crafted well enough, a good erotic romance shouldn’t necessarily be graded on how authentic it feels. CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is a relatively short, smoking hot read, and fans of Ms. Espino’s work, and the ménage genre itself, will definitely want to whip out their credit cards for this one!
6.This is one of Stacey's best books to date.

This is one of Stacey's best books to date. A hot read if you like your cowboys really hunky, a bit damaged and ready to fight for what they want! Christina was a great heroine because she was open to what life threw her way and wanted to make changes, and she definitely found her future with these three cowboys. James was one of the hottest heroes I've read about in ages. Jake and Noah were just the icing on the cake. Again, it was a great read, well written, a fab story. All it needs is a bow!
She felt surrounded—she was surrounded. The heat from their bodies warmed her sensitive flesh. She felt like a princess, so wanted, so adored. This was a beautiful dream that she half expected to wake up from. Christina may have been invisible back home, but here, she was the center of attention. How could she ever say good-bye to the best thing that ever happened to her?
Her thoughts drifted to the virility of these men. As James kicked off his pants, committing to this sex party, her eyes darted to his cock. She remembered how it felt against her tongue. There were three cocks vying for attention and only one of her. Her pussy pulsed as she envisioned taking all three of them.
"Tell me what you want, Christina." Her name on James' lips was erotic as hell. She never imagined him accepting her, not dismissing her, but here he was, offering himself. "Do you want me to suck your sweet little cunt?"
She couldn't reply, only gulped in a lung full of air, but her parted lips and hooded eyes were invitation. He crept up her body, peppering kisses along her stomach and the valley of her breasts.
"Please, James." She wanted him to please her…in any way imaginable. At the same time as she wanted sexual release, she wanted promises. Promises that he wouldn't walk away this time. Only now did she realize how many feelings she'd kept pent up over the past couple months. She tried to forget James, to ignore his casual dismissal, but it did affect her. Strongly. Each man at Golden Acres was unique, yet damaged in some way. She'd always been attracted to imperfect men, hoping to attain their love and heal them at the same time.
"Tell me." He licked her pert nipple, making her gasp and reach for his broad shoulders.
"Anything. Stop teasing."
He reversed until his hot breath heated her folds. James spread her legs at the knees and Jake's hands were there to keep them apart. When he lowered his head and lapped at her moist, swollen pussy, she thrashed her head from side to side.
The fact that James pleasured her, giving rather than just taking, meant a lot to her. She savored the feel of his lips and tongue exploring her pussy and suckling her clit. It took little time before she lost control. "No more, James!" It was too much, so intense that she thought she'd lose her mind if he continued.
"Relax, darlin'." Noah kissed her cheek, his stubble scraping her soft skin. "You've gotta relax before you can really enjoy yourself."
"I can't," she assured, tightening her muscles. "I can't…"
Noah descended to her breast. She was so exposed and didn't care for a second. These men made her feel desirable despite her many flaws. The sharp pull on her other tit made her gasp. Both dark heads stole a breast. The overflow of stimulation had her calling out with complete abandon.
"Oh my God!" Then her voice left her, but her mouth remained open. Her blood began to burn, starting in her toes and racing up her limbs. A new calm filled her, eliminating her oversensitivity. Everything the men did made her transcend her body. She felt as if she were floating and she never wanted it to end. She dropped her legs loosely to the sides and thrust up into James eager mouth. "Don't stop."
"That's a girl." Jake kissed her lips, once. "I can't wait to get inside you. I'm gonna fuck you good and hard." His strangled words stole her last shred of control and the heat climbing her body pooled in her clit…building…building. Then she exploded, wave after wave of heavenly bliss crashing through her body. She sucked in short shallow breaths.
"Let go, sweet thing," Noah whispered in her ear, his rough hand massaging her breast.
She wanted to scream with her release, had difficulty holding back, but refused to embarrass herself. Letting go completely, allowing that tsunami of pleasure to control her felt too intimate. There was still a sprinkling of fear within her that was scared of rejection, of disapproval.
When James sat up, looking down on her, he shook his head in disapproval. "By the time we're finished with you, you'll be screaming. Promise you that." She liked that promise, looked forward to whatever they had planned for her body.
