More reviews for Theirs To Share

I LOVED IT!!! Theirs to Share was a perfectly timed book in my reading queue. But then again, what’s not to love. Ms. Michaels gives us two, super-hot FBI agents who are cousins, but Grayson and Parker are so close that they’re more like brothers. There’s a super smart, sassy lead lady who turns out to quite courageous, but then again Cheyenne is a cardiologist so she kind of has to be. Throw in an ill-timed hike in the woods during which Cheyenne and her friend Steve stumble upon a mob hit of an FBI agent and you get one really intense romantic suspense AND a super-hot ménage!!! Yes, I was in heaven.

Because of the crime they witnessed, Cheyenne and Steve go into protective custody in separate locations. Of course Cheyenne ends up with the cousins and finds herself oddly attracted to them despite the frightening turn her life has taken. Both Parker and Grayson are attracted to Cheyenne but she’s their witness and they have to remain professional to protect her. All is going well until their conversations take a sexual turn and Cheyenne learns that the cousins share a woman. Suddenly it’s ALL she can think about. But as the quarters get closer and the cabin fever gets worse, one thing leads to another and she finds herself with Parker while Grayson watches and she realizes she likes it. What she likes even better, is being shared between them. As hot as ALL the scenes were, I liked that the author didn’t jump directly to a DP scene (which I love) and waited until Cheyenne was comfortable with both men. But my goodness the DP scene was HOT!!!

While Theirs to Share is a great ménage book and the author develops the relationship between the three beautifully, there’s far more to the story. The threesome not only have to find their way with each other, they also have to figure out if they are serious about continuing a relationship once the hitmen and caught and Cheyenne has to start a new life elsewhere. Are the cousins willing to quit the FBI and start their lives over when Cheyenne moves? Does Cheyenne really want a relationship with TWO men? I’ll tell you that it is a steamy, action-packed adventure both in and out of the bedroom as this threesome finds their way. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Michaels’s writing style and look forward to reading more of her work … I will definitely be checking out the previous books in the Crime and Punishment series. In the meantime, I’d adding this to my reread list.

I loved this book! The characters were just so much real and it was very fun to watch the by-play between them all.  I think it is always so amazing to read books about ménage relationships because it is so hard to keep the balance right between all three characters without there being any jealousy.  The two males Grayson and Parker are cousins and that helped a little bit on the jealousy front since they have been best friends since birth.  The female is Cheyenne and she is Cardiologist who witnesses the murder of a FBI agent and must go into protective custody. 

The drama and romance were balanced perfectly and the characters were able to form relationships in a believable amount of time.  This book does not have any interaction between the male characters since they are cousins.  Overall this was a wonderful action-packed and emotional read and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys ménages with strong female characters.

Hearts on Fire for Theirs To Share!

A great review from Hearts On Fire!

Review: Theirs to Share is the third book in the Crime and Punishment series by Trista Ann Michaels. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel with ease.

 Grayson Marx and Parker Johansson are FBI agents and partners, cousins and best friends. They do almost everything together at work and outside it but that is because they are bound spirituality together after their twin mothers put a spell on them. They have had little luck finding a woman who will meet their needs for more than a few days.

 Cheyenne Willis is heart surgeon who during a hiking trip with her best friend witness a murder. Which gets her put into witness protection with Grayson and Parker. Cheyenne has had little luck in the bedroom so she tries to keep both men at arm’s length.

 The connection between Grayson, Cheyenne, and Parker is intense. While its hard to get a feel for Grayson and Parker individually, together they make a great trio. The sex scenes were intense. I really liked that both men were able to have time individually with Cheyenne.

 I found this book is well written. The overall plot was very fascinating. The main and secondary characters were absorbing. This book kept me on my toes all the way through and just when I thought I had it all figured out another plot twist occurs. Overall, this was a great book. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

The sinking Ellora's Cave

Things are still an absolute mess. I posted last month that I'd finally gotten a royalty check. I received a check dated 8/29 on 9/29...that's right, a full month late...for May royalties that I should have received back in July. Yeah, and EC says they're not behind. Wow.

It's now 10/13 and I still have not received another check. I saw on twitter that an EC author had just received her check dated 8/29, so my guess is I won't see another check until sometime in November, if I even get one at all.

It's interesting how these missing checks come about the same time that EC sued Dear Author. Guess I know where my royalties are going.

When we work for a company, we expect that company to pay on time. If you're paid on Friday, you expect a check on Friday. Why should EC be any different? Just because it's royalties, is it okay to just pay whenever they feel like it?

No, it's not.

Jaid Black continues on as though she's done nothing wrong. And in her mind, she probably believes it. It's amazing to me that someone could be that blind. And what about the employees of EC? Raelene for example and the other office staff, especially the payroll department. In my mind, if they saw the company doing something bad, didn't speak out and did what they were told to do without question, they're just as guilty in all this.

Just because they're nice to you, doesn't mean they're not doing something wrong.

Oh, and that automated reply I received from the payroll department of EC, saying I would get a response in two weeks? I never received a response. You really didn't think I would, did you?

Review Theirs To Share

Five Nymphs from Literary Nymphs Reviews..:)

The third book in the Crime and Punishment series, Theirs to Share, is a fast paced action and love story.  The author kept the story interesting and threw in at least one surprise toward the end. I really enjoyed the backstory for Grayson and Parker.  The author threw in a few humorous tidbits that were reflected as the story progressed. The men are cousins whose mothers are twins who did something that makes them extremely close and able to connect mentally.  As FBI agents, they watch each other’s backs.

Both men are attracted to Cheyenne and she is just as attracted to them.  All three try to resist acting on that attraction, but of course they fail.  The men aren’t sure Cheyenne will be able to handle a relationship with both of them long-term but once she makes up her mind, she is worried they don’t want that with her.  Once all the misunderstandings get sorted out, the scenes between them all get even hotter.

I loved David and his relationship with Cheyenne. There is a small secondary story with Cheyenne’s friend, David, which works out.  In addition, other agents show up to help and one may end up with his own story if hints are any indication.  

The stories in this series can be read as individual stories without having to read the entire series in order.  I would recommend reading all of them though, as each are good stories for the bookshelf. I am looking forward to the next one and hope it is Josh’s story.

More Ellora's Cave troubles...

Another month has gone by and no check from EC. Emails and phone calls go unanswered, just like always. I have no doubt if I was to go up there in person, I would find the office doors locked. I'm actually surprised no one has gone up there yet, but very few of us live in the area of Akron, Ohio and since we're not getting paid, how many actually have the money for such a trip? Some, like the author below, can't even pay their rent due to nonpayment.

Here's another blog post with lots of interesting links.

It’s a shame that we at EC have to resort to such a tactic, but I’m adding my name to the list of authors who are asking that readers not buy their EC titles. We’re not getting paid for them anyway.
My words to EC…Just stop fighting and implode already so the authors can pick up the pieces and move on!!
My EC titles are the following...
Fantasy Bar
Fantasy Resort
Star Crossed
Crossing the Line
Holiday Love Lessons
Callie's Sexy Surprise
Spark of Magic
