Sex Retreat (MFMM) by Natalie Acres (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$6.99
Categories: BDSM, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

I was soooo excited to start Sex Retreat today. Sadly, I'm hugely frustrated. I have read all of her previous books, however, some were read a long, long time ago. I read about 5-7 books a week. I have no memory of Stephen Patchett, Cow Camp or Mitch Colony. Who's Cash? I'm lost. With e-books, it's not that easy to flip back thru the older works and refresh your memory. In fact, some books are on an old e-reader. Please, Natalie, consider including short re-caps at the beginnings of your books. Help your good readers out by refreshing their memories. These characters are with you daily, but that's not the same for the reader. At the very least, your books are NOT stand-alone. Thank you for your talent and for the hours of entertainment I have gotten from your work. I am still a crazy fan.

No Escape from Destiny (MMF) by Kasey Dean (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

Kasey Dean is my new MUST READ author. Her books are fantastic. What makes them stand out is the fact that he characters walk through several conflicts and resolutions throughout the book. That keeps you turning the pages.

Hidden Alpha (MMFM) by Kasey Dean (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$6.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Shape-shifter

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

Another outstanding book by Kasey Dean! This book is exciting, well written and sexy. The most unique thing about it is the number of conflicts and interesting twists and turns. Just when you think things are settling down for the characters, something surprises you. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys sexy M/M and M/M/F/M action.

Kansas Nights (MFM) by Jenny Penn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$8.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVE NOT FIRST OR RECENTLY READ KANSAS HEAT. I read Kansas Heat about a year ago. I remember I enjoyed the book so much I wrote Ms. Penn an email. Unfortunately, that's all I recall about the book. Sadly, I am completely lost in the Kansas Nights' story. I don't remember Amanda or her men or Willy. I don't remember enough about the story line to get the connection. I don't remember enough about Kansas Heat to enjoy this book at all. Ms. Penn is an outstanding author and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the other work. Regrettably, she fell into a pitfall experienced by other authors. She lives with these characters night and day. They are very fresh in her mind. She forgot to read the book with the audience's experience in mind. Most ebook readers are passionate and devoted book fans. I read at least 125 books a year. I have read many, many books since Kansas Heat. I can't be expected to recall the details of that story a year later. As a result, I couldn't enjoy the suspense part of the story line in Kansas Nights. Worse, I felt frustrated and left out. Due to the limitations of ereaders, it's not easy to flip through Kansas Heat to refresh my memory. This could easily have been avoided by including a recap or flashback at the beginning of the book. Had that been included, the book would have gotten a much better review.

Destined to Be Three (MMF) by Mia Ashlinn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Very good. Great start to a new series. I plan to get them all. They only thing that kept me from rating a 5 was the conflict between the heros and the heroine. I never fully understood what kept them apart for so long.

Strong Attraction (LoveXtreme) by Chloe Lang (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

I love this series! I am huge fan of western menage romances. In fact, I would like to move to Wilde, NV! Pros: Ms. Lang does a most excellent job of creating lovable, flawed, relatable heroines. Just like in my fantasies, a curvey, smart mouthed girl like me might attracted 5 hawt cowboys. Ms. Lang is strong in one of most difficult challenges in writing menage with multi-partners. She writes in such a way that you can really differentiate between all the players. This makes the story much more exciting and enjoyable to read. Cons: In a story read cover-to-cover, it is fun to try to figure out the "who done it" and get duped along with the characters. In a story read in 6 installments over 6 months, that is really hard. Foreshadowing and little hints are forgotten between installments. Ms. Lang, please keep the audience in mind when writing an installemnt story. Remember, some of us read up to 5 books a week. We will remember your main characters but secondary characters and those involved in the "romantic suspense" portion of the story will slip our minds. I know it can be tedious but we need more reminders than you might think. Also, most of us are reading on e-readers. We can't just flip back through the pages for a refresher. Thank you for an excellent group of stories. Can't wait for the next one!

Stoneface (MMF) by Tymber Dalton (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$7.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I ready 3-5 books per week and this is one of the BEST I have read. Here's why: 1. The primary romance was so heartfelt and sincere. 2. The heros and heroine were likable, relatable and believable. 3. The secondary characters were fleshed out and interesting and unexpected. My absolute fav is Liam. Why not write a book for him? He deserves his HEA. 4. There were about 4 different conflicts and they were all interesting and kept you turning the pages. All of the conflicts were refreshing and nothing like I have read before. Thank you for such a great book. It's a stand out!

Wolf's Passion (MFMM) by Ellen Starr (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Vampires/Werewolves

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

I feel terrible leaving a bad review but I have to be honest. I got to about page 40 and just didn't enjoy this book. (I feel the need to qualify..I read about 5 books a week and this is the first time I can remember giving up on a book.) I didn't like the characters. None of the men seemed very strong or Alpha. They came across as pitiful. The main characters all seemed "beaten down" and sad. That's just not sexy.

I enjoyed this book and would have given it a 5 if not for one factor. It took me until page 45 to recall who these characters were and what happened in the first story. Like many Siren fans, I read 5+ books per week. Right now, Ethan and Jackson are very popular character names. I just couldn't remember what happened in the first book. Bit of unsolicited advice, give a little synopsis at the beginning of the book to refresh the readers mind, especially if it has been several weeks since the first story was released.

I am a huge fan of Dixie Lynn Dwyer and this book is no exception. She does a great job of writing menage. I enjoyed all of the minor characters and can't wait to read the next installment. One small point of constructive criticism: if you're writing a menage, please don't give your heroine a male name. It is confusing in a situation where it is hard enough to keep track of the characters. Also, give each character a distinctive name. Too many characters with similar names is confusing (ie. Alex, Al and Alexa; Sam and Samara; Marie and Marette). That said, the story was steamy and enjoyable and I highly recommend it.
