Erica's Choice

Erica Shannon is a school teacher. She is shy and doesn’t go out much. Her mother died of breast cancer when Erica was a child and then she lived with her aunt who recently died of the same disease. Now, Erica has found a lump. She decides before dealing with this problem she’s going to have fun. She’s had her eye on firefighter Corey but she has no idea how to get his attention.

Little did Erica know but she didn’t have to do anything to get Corey’s attention, she already had it. Corey has no idea how to approach someone like Erica, pretty and smart. Though Corey is definitely handsome, he’s intimidated by smart women. Corey barely finished school and had to take the test to be a firefighter twice! With some egging on by his good friend Griff, Corey finally makes a move.

Griff, an older firefighter with a reputation, joins the couple. He’s as drawn to Erica as Corey is but then again, he’s also drawn to Corey. He’s not planning on doing anything with either but as it turns out, things go a lot further than anyone expected.

Erica gets her night to remember but emotions start popping up all over and she runs scared. Griff and Corey make eye contact revealing more than either planned or expected.

If something major doesn’t happen and quick, no one is going to have more than that one night. Can Corey convince Erica that he’s worth a shot? Did Griff really see desire in Corey’s eyes? What is going on?

I don’t know why I put off reading this story. Maybe I thought that the name meant Erica had to choose between the men. But, whatever silly reason I had, within pages I wish I had immediately started this story when I got it. It grabbed my interest and had me riveted to my kindle. What a great story.

The characters are perfect, outstanding, and awesome. Erica knows that she has a much better than average chance of having cancer due to genetic testing. So, a lump in her breast would be a big red flag to her. Based on her previous experiences with her father and her long term boyfriend, she’s sure that when things get bad men leave. With this knowledge, Erica forces herself to go outside her comfort zone which she not sure how to do. After all, how do you feel sexy in tweed? Corey likes smart girls but he’s sure they get bored with him. He’s been part of the charity pin-up calendar and women flock to him but he’s not comfortable in that role. Gorgeous and caring, Corey wants a family and normalcy. Griff is older than Erica and Corey. He’s known for his sexual experiences. What most people don’t know is he is bi and he was once part of a threesome. Griff thinks he can take charge and get Corey and Erica together without loosing his heart. He has feelings for them both but he knows he’s going to step away.

The emotional pull is enough to pull you under. Erica and Griff are sure they can keep their hearts whole by not falling in love and by keeping their distance. Corey wants them both and isn’t sure what to do. He’s never been attracted to a man before which Griff knows. Griff is making Corey go slow, he doesn’t want any regrets. In the meantime, he’s calling Erica at night describing fantasies he hopes will happen between the three of them. In the background is Erica’s secret and she’s scared to share knowing the two men will leave.

However, these three do get together in various combinations. Not only do their friendships evolve and change but the sex does too. Regardless if it’s all three together or just a twosome, the sex is hot. Don’t read this a work as you’re sure to get hot and bothered! Corey is learning how to please a man, in particular Griff. Erica and Corey are learning how to do threesomes. Fantasies are discussed and acted on. Nothing is left out as this threesome figures out their relationship.

Terrific romance with ever element you could ever ask for; caring, loving, loyalty, friendship and much more. Things beyond anyone’s control threaten to tear them apart yet these things end up bringing them even closer. Powerful emotional tugs at heart strings kept me reading without wanting to stop.

Now, don’t be like me. Pick this book up immediately and start reading. I absolutely loved this book.

Book Blurb for Erica's Choice

One three-alarm night ignites a firestorm of complications…

High school teacher Erica Shannon isn’t a one-night stand kind of girl. Pair that with an aversion to relationships, and she’s resigned to no love life at all. Then one horrifying discovery propels her off her take-no-risks path, and into the arms of the stars of her midnight fantasies.

When his friend and fellow firefighter threatens to make a move on Erica, Corey figures he’d better get over the notion that she’s way out of his league—fast—before he has to stand in line.

Griff never thought he’d get the chance to introduce Corey to the combustible delights of multi-partner play, until he senses the sheer volume of sexual energy surging beneath Erica’s repressed exterior.

A blazing night of passion has unexpected consequences. Corey is surprised to discover the woman of his dreams, and that he doesn’t mind sharing her—or himself—with Griff. But Griff finds his heart pulled down a romantic path he vowed he’d never venture again.

Erica? She’s got a problem on her hands. Hold two hardwired-to-rescue firemen at arm’s length—and away from her heart—until she’s fought and won a battle that may well destroy her.

Warning: One tortured woman and two hunky Aussie firemen indulging in three-way love. Scenes of the male/female, male/male, male/male/female and male/female/male variety (whew!). Also includes anal sex, mild spanking, cussing, phone sex, fire trucks and tearjerker moments.
