« Coming Clean » by Inez Kelly (Carina Press)
Genre: Romance, ménage, erotic
“Coming clean never felt so good…
Grant and Vivi Michaelson share everything in their marriage: love, commitment—and their wildest sexual desires. But their relationship is tested when Vivi admits she wants a threesome with Grant’s old friend Cade, proposing their annual trip to the lake as the perfect opportunity to fulfill her fantasy.
All three of them are aroused by the idea. Vivi and Cade have long felt a smoldering attraction to each other…and Grant and Cade have hidden an illicit desire for decades. Going through with the ménage will test their boundaries, reveal old secrets…and maybe tear them apart. After all, there might be room for Cade in bed, but is there room for a third in their marriage?”
Ménage is a difficult theme, I feel, and even more so when two of the protagonists are already in a relationship at the start of the story. But Inez Kelly writes this story wonderfully.
She conveys all the feelings brilliantly and makes us feel too. We can feel Vivi and Grant’s love, just as we can feel Grant and Cade’s desire… She writes each sex scene subtly yet hotly. I finished the book hoping this was going to be a long term relationship…
And, since Inez says she was inspired by a real story, I asked –over twitter- “Are the people who inspired [this story] still in love?” And…*drum roll* “They have been for nearly 2 decades now”!
This story makes you feel: love, worry, desire, longing to have that “perfect relationship” too… If you like erotic romance and you don’t mind (or even like…I know I do!) love stories between men then I recommend this book.
