I am not a sharer so it is harder for me to relate, but I do read them every now and then to keep things fresh and to keep me from getting bored.
And of the 10 or so I have read in the last few years I enjoyed almost all of them. I say all that so that everyone reading this review knows that I am no Menage book expert and this is just my humble opinion on this book! I didn't get it! First off I had a hard time getting into this one right out the gate because the heroine's name is Hannah, which is my daughter's name. That is one of my pet peeves! I don't like to read books with my children's names in it that have detailed sex scenes.
I have been putting off this series for a while now for that very reason, but I really wanted to read book 2 and 5 in this series and having OCD I can't skip around. I have to read them all and in order so I had to power through not only sex scenes with my child's name in it, but group sex scenes sooooo yea a struggle from the start. Still keeping an open mind this book was just not working for me. There wasn't much of a love story or deep character development.
I didn't really connect to any of the characters in this book and I was not invested in their relationship. The story was so not believable. The way they start their relationship was so unrealistic I was rolling my eyes. I am to believe that the 3 brothers, 1 who is the CEO and Hannah's boss, just go from being nice to her and having a work relationship to without warning decide she is theirs and literally throwing her over their shoulder and taking her on a plane against her will and then spanking her for not telling them she has a stalker.
From Boss's brother to spanker without a date or a "hey we're into you and want you to be our girl. Let's just say I buy the start of their relationship which I don't they instantly start throwing around the "I love yous" and we all wanna marry you. And she goes from being a virgin to butt plugs in less than 24 hours!
Gavin had a traumatic event happen like 10 years ago so he is all broody "I don't deserve love" which is fine. I like broody damaged Heroes and I get that they push their love interest away and all, but Gavin didn't just push Hannah away He acted like an ass and said such dickish things to her, and she was just like whatevs.

Kidnnapping, 3 men wanting to marry her and make her their submissive, butt plugs, spankings it's cool! OH and let's talk about the spankings. I don't mind spanking in books but at one point in the book they give her 40 swats. That is not kinky that is excessive! And after said 40 swats she immediately has sex with all 3 of them at the same time. Cuzz yea that would happen! This book so didn't work for me.

View all 6 comments. Feb 16, Cbackson rated it did not like it. After I finish books like this, sometimes I have to ask myself: Really, what was I expecting? The thing is, Shayla Black has written books that really wiped me out. Books for which I don't remember the sex, just the truly emotionally affecting transformation of the hero and heroine into people who can be happy together. This was not one of those books.

This was sort of like Honestly, the best I can do is pose the following questions: Is this to remove any hint that there might be same-sex attraction at play? Because all it does is add a creepy incest dynamic. I mean, think about it this way - you're screwing away, hovering on the verge of orgasm, and then you look up and lock eyes with IDK, for me this would be the opposite of sexy. I'm NOT a virgin, and it would be a major leap for me. Where are all these toyear-old Romancelandia virgins coming from? Beyond this, I got nothing. This was neither hot nor emotionally affecting.
I can't even remember the heroine's name. Or the heroes' names, except that they were kind of porny maybe one was named SLATE or something like that? Feb 27, Auntee rated it liked it. Three tall, dark, and studly Texas brothers Gavin James 32 , Slade James 28 , and half brother Dex Townsend 27 capture their sweet, blonde, virginal "admin" I'm assuming that's some sort of slang for administrative assistant and whisk her off to their remote oil company offices in Alaska when they find out a stalker is after her.
Two of the brothers waste no time in letting year-old Hannah know just Oh boy.

Two of the brothers waste no time in letting year-old Hannah know just want they want from her they're doms, she's agreed to be their "sub" in the bedroom --but oldest brother Gavin is hung up on some tragic mistake from his past and though he desperately wants to, he can't bring himself to join in the fun and games. Despite some hotness in this story, it wasn't quite as steamy as it could've been.
And too many eye-rolling moments brought me out of the story and kept me from getting fully engrossed in the storytelling. And a couple of things bugged me-- view spoiler [Hannah was supposedly indispensable to the brothers and they were all wildly in love with her. They ran a million dollar oil company and were rich and successful. Then why did their right-hand woman live in a ghetto and drive a broken down car--didn't they pay her well? And if you can't check your disbelief at the door, this one is never going to fly with you.
Hannah goes from an inexperienced virgin to a woman who takes on three well-endowed he-men who like to dole out spankings, use nipple clamps and butt plugs and have 4-way sex, all in a matter of a few days. With no complaints--she loves it all. Takes to it like a duck to water. Ah, I could go on, but I think I've said enough. Oh yeah, the suspense plot about the stalker?
I knew who he was almost immediately--the author drops a big fat clue and you'd have to be skimming to miss it. And the confrontation between the stalker and Hannah the dialogue almost seemed ridiculous. Bottom line is, I just couldn't fully connect with this bunch.

A conniving, social climbing slut who took advantage of Gavin during his very rough life period of being a young billionaire. What could he do except fuck her repeatedly? But then we find out why Gavin feels so guilty after her death.
So she does kill herself. And she dies and so does his unborn child. And he feels guilty. To which I say But he did screw up. He should have called the police. He has to be an asshole to his brothers AND the newfound love of his life. And when his brothers finally call him out on this and he confesses, they are like, what?
You did absolutely nothing wrong. He did do something wrong. Look, I'm cool with forgiveness and moving on, but the thing that really frustrates me is that anytime someone even hinted at an insult to their beautiful virgin Hannah, they got punched in the face. The CIO of their company thought she was a slut?
Punch in the face. And we should forget about her the next day! Now, who wants to double penetrate the virgin Hannah? View all 3 comments. Sep 29, Stephanie rated it really liked it.
What does that say about my reading habits? Considering I also get excited when I see Etruscan or cryptozoology in a title, I'm not sure. Anyway, my bad for not deciphering the title more closely. I totally overlooked the implication of the word Master. I don't typically read BDSM, only because I can't get past my immediate reaction to laugh when a man tells a woman to kneel on the floor at his feet or he'll spank her.
I keep thinking, I'd be telling him to get on his knees and while he's down there, clean the floor and maybe I'll buy him dinner later. Hmm, maybe someone can recommend some good femdom. That said, Shayla Black and Lexi Blake's writing is compact but emotionally compelling and, though short, the story held my interest and I finished it in a few hours. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the next chapter in the Doomsday Brethren series.

Aug 10, Dee rated it it was ok Shelves: Oh dear, I really wish I had given this a miss! I have never read a 1. I have never read anything by Ms Black so can't compare but I do know this was not up to Ms Blake's usual standard! I now have a bit of a dilemma on my hands in that I had got the whole series at the same time, so do I go ahead and carry on reading them in hopes they get better but possibly waste special reading time, or do I leave them which is a waste of money!

Their Virgin Captive (Masters of Ménage, #1) by Shayla Black
Yeah well that fell short too - especially when narrated at times in a full Texan drawl! I'm afraid this was a bit much for little ole me. I've discovered three men is just one too many for me to handle! Oct 13, litsiren rated it it was ok Shelves: Only if Slade and Dex were out of pictu 2 stars This is an honest review.
Only if Slade and Dex were out of picture or instead of brothers, the two were strangers to fit the menage theme, Gavin and Hannah would be a perfect couple alright! Steamy scenes were hot though.
