A Siren Erotic Romance
4.5 DELIGHTFUL DIVAS: "Cowboy Love on Hold, The Cowboy Way 1 by Luxie Ryder was a surprisingly refreshing take on love stories in the threesome lifestyle. Ms. Ryder's characters are fresh, genuine and relateable. Long lost loves coming back together are a favorite story line of mine, especially when it involves two hot men. Even though Kimber is really the glue between Brandon and Wade, I felt like the story really focused on the relationship, or lack thereof, between Brandon and Wade. Kimber doesn't know the real reason why Brandon left her and disappeared many years ago, making her turn to Wade for comfort, but when she finds out not only is it a shock but a pleasant surprise as well. Brandon returns home to find that Kimber and Wade are now together and not only does it hurt him, he is worried that there is no room for him anymore in their lives. Wade has to finally deal with issues he thought long buried, but he needs both his best friend and his girlfriend to help him. When trouble follows Brandon back to his home town, he not only has to deal with his past relationships, but he has to figure out a way to salvage and save those he loves. Kimber has to be strong for both men even though she struggles with the feelings that Brandon brings out in her even though she has been with Wade for so long. Cowboy Love on Hold by Luxie Ryder is a great story with love, sex, secrets, lies, danger and sexy men. It was a great read that was not only entertaining but exciting as well." -- Karyl, Dark Divas Reviews
5 STARS: "I'm a sucker for the reuniting of old love, so it's no wonder I loved COWBOY LOVE ON HOLD so much. Add a great plot, some intense action, and plenty of sizzling sex to that rekindled love and we've definitely got a hit. Brandon, and almost-retired Special Ops soldier comes home after his mom gets sick and sees the two people he loves most in the world, Kimber and Wade. What makes it worse is that Kimber and Wade now obviously love each other instead of him. Years away haven't faded his feelings for them, but he's not sure that they will accept him after leaving all those years ago, especially after the way things ended between him and Wade. However, he's willing to do what he has to do to get the people he loves back, even if that means rehashing old wounds. They've finally got a chance to be together once old truths come out, but when Brandon's dangerous job comes home to his loves, he has to fight to protect the life he never thought he'd have. Wow, this book was fantastic. It had a lot of emotion in it, and that was the first thing that hooked me. I really felt for all three of them: Kimber, Brandon and Wade. I felt like this was a situation where the things that happened occurred because the three of them were young and unsure of themselves. I couldn't be mad at anyone for what happened. It just was. But it made hope for their relationship to work out that much harder. The plot was also gripping. It had suspense and action that kept the fact that Brandon was a Special Ops soldier front and center in our minds, and also made the overall story more interesting. COWBOY LOVE ON HOLD also had a ton of hot lovin'. There was m/f/m sex, m/f, m/m and m/m/f. I thought that although there was tons of sex, it was about the reconnection that the trio was trying to form. But nevertheless, it was steamy, erotic and extremely sexy. So, a sweet love story surrounded by a good story and smokin' hot sex. And having a woman get two sexy cowboys, what could be better? I read this book in one sitting because it ensnared me from start to finish. This is the start of a new series by Ms. Ryder and I cannot wait see what is going to happen next!" -- Rho, The Romance Reviews
"Okay, let's get the suspense aspects of the story out of the way first. Oh my gosh, it was fun, exciting, entertaining. Twists and turns, suspenseful situations…that didn't take over the story. Yay! If you want suspense action as a backdrop to an engaging love story, this book is for you. I can say, it is just the kind of story I love. The characters are memorable, and the development of their love wasn't rushed with rapid sex scenes that don't contribute to the plot. Ms. Ryder, you're good. You're very good at marrying hot sex with wicked good storytelling. As much as I loved the angsty love between Brandon and Wade, I loved how you made Kimber vital to the relationship. She wasn't left out, even when she wasn't with them. The story doesn't drag, great characters, emotional-tummy-tugging sex scenes. This is a great story and a great start to a series I intend to follow." -- Seriously Reviewed
Brandon smiled down at Kimber splayed out on the rug and turned to find Wade walking towards him on shaky legs. Wade shrugged the crumpled bathrobe from his shoulders and didn’t try to hide from Brandon’s gaze as it wandered over him. Still rock hard and turned on beyond sanity by watching Wade and Kimber come because of him, Brandon held his breath as Wade got closer, uncertain what to expect.
Wade grabbed his shoulders and brought him round to face him head-on then slid his hands up into Brandon’s hair and kissed him. His cock gave a jerk as it brushed against Wade’s abdomen, and Brandon pulled back, desperate for the contact but not sure yet what was allowed. Wade’s hands moved downwards, sliding over Brandon’s back and along his spine to grab Brandon’s waist and crush his body against his own. Brandon gasped and bit down on Wade’s massive shoulder when he felt Wade’s large, strong hands cup the cheeks of his ass to hold him steady.
“It’s your turn,” Wade groaned in his ear. “You’ve already waited too long.”
Brandon was suddenly afraid. The years of being alone and without the two people he loved had taken their toll, and their approval and acceptance mattered too much. But he forgot all that when Wade kissed him again, and he felt the first touch of Kimber’s hand on his thigh. He looked down to find her kneeling between them, her gaze flitting between him and Wade.
“What do you want us to do?” she whispered, raking her nails up his leg and sending a jolt of heat to his already painfully hard dick.
He laughed, his voice sounding hoarse even to his own ears. “Everything.”
“We’ll get to that—eventually.” Wade grasped the back of his neck. “Tell us what you want.”
Brandon could see that Wade hadn’t fully recovered, so the choice was easier than it might have been. He reached down to grab Kimber’s hands, bringing her up to stand beside them. “Do you even know how much I want to fuck you?”
Kimber smiled and led him over to the sofa, pulling him down on top of her as she sank into it. Brandon slotted his body between hers, and Wade knelt down on the floor beside them, his hands wandering over her body as he kissed first her and then Brandon. Kimber groaned, and they turned to find her staring at them.
Kimber seemed stunned by the sight before her. “You two are so beautiful together…” Her voice shook with emotion, and Brandon couldn’t wait a second longer to have her. When Kimber opened her legs to offer herself to him, Brandon grabbed his cock and pressed it at her entrance, his gaze holding hers as he finally knew what it felt like to be inside the woman he had always loved. Her reaction to him was everything he’d ever dreamed of, and he watched almost spellbound as she quivered and shuddered beneath him, the walls of her pussy molding around his prick.
Wade appeared at her side and grasped her face in his palm to turn her towards him, so he could kiss her. Kimber’s body arched, thrusting her breasts up towards Brandon, and he couldn’t resist sucking one of her dusky nipples into his mouth and flicking his tongue over and around it. A sudden tug on his hair pulled him away from Kimber, and he turned towards Wade’s waiting mouth.
Kimber’s slick pussy convulsed around him, and he knew without a doubt how much seeing him and Wade together turned her on. Brandon slid his arm under her ass and lifted her up, his body still joined with hers as he got up on his knees and reached for a cushion to support her ass. Wade didn’t need to be told what to do and immediately dropped his head to suck at Kimber’s nipple while his hand crawled along her body to find her clit. Brandon gave her a hard thrust as Wade’s fingers moved against her, and Kimber rewarded Brandon with another long, satisfying tremor deep inside her cunt.
