Lover, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marni Mann & Gia Riley is available now!

The attraction was undeniable.
I couldn’t escape him.
I didn’t want to.
I was his.
He was mine.
But he wasn’t my husband.
My once treasured marriage was now flawed and imperfect.
By the time the guilt set in, it was too late.
Reality was trying to keep me away from my obsession.
My husband was that reality.
My obsession was West.
But West was forbidden. Taken. Married.
We were swingers.
It was the perfect arrangement.
Until I fell in love…
With West.

After tonight, she’ll know how gorgeous she is, and she’ll know how incredible a man can make her feel. And, when she looks at her husband, she’ll expect more from him. I know shit between them isn’t as hot as what Tilly and I have. Cannon doesn’t look at Piper like he wants to take her clothes off with his teeth and have his mouth live between her legs. He gazes at her like he wants to ask where they’re going to dinner and what movie they’ll see after. There’s a difference between fucking your best friend and someone who actually worships your body. Piper will soon know the latter. And that’s why she’s here. To know what it feels like to be with a man who lusts for her cunt. She picked the right couple to swing with.

Two couples who wouldn't ordinarily meet but when Piper feels like there is something missing in her marriage to Cannon she's decides to spice things up and this is how they meet West and his wife
Piper signs up to a swingers website believing that this will somehow fix what she feels is lacking I her life with Cannon. Cannon is a successful workaholic lawyer, I found him to be slightly condescending towards Piper at times. Piper is a really sweet naive woman who you can't help but like she's a caring loving supportive wife who doesn't seem to know herself it's like she's Cannon's wife and that's all. West is an ex hockey player who feels completely lost after the end of his successful career, his wife Tilley is a piece of work who loves to push people's buttons she thrives on control and conflict.
Gia and Marni have written a book that yes has lots of sexs as you would expect from the blurb but it's so much more than that. When things change and emotions and feelings surface then the story changes into one with more depth than you would imagine from the synopsis. As I was reading I kept getting the feeling that some of the characters had an ulterior motive for agreeing to the arrangement and when all was revealed I was gobsmacked.
This was a story that kept me entertained from the start, West was my favourite charcter he was use dreamy. I can't wait ro see what Marni and Gia have in store next.

This freaking book. There are so many things that can be said about how I feel about this book. First off, this book is probably the hottest book I've ever read. I had to take frequent breaks while reading this story, just to steady my heart rate and remember to breathe. Second, this book was also hilarious. I kept laughing so hard, and waking my husband up from a dead sleep that it resulted in me getting kicked out of bed. Books are now banned from my bedroom. I regret nothing. This book was absolutely amazing and totally worth it! I loved all the characters. They fit their roles perfectly. The situations were believable and carried so much substance. This story is completely unpredictable, and will keep you constantly wanting more. The ending was happy and perfect, and closure is given, but I still want more! I highly recommend this book to anyone that needs an epic erotic romantic comedy, with a smidge of suspense. Everyone, over the age of eighteen, should buy and read this book!
This story with stick with you, and cause a massive book hangover, but it's totally worth it, and you will leave with no regrets.

Honesty is the best policy, right?
Ok, so here goes:

1. I needed this book because of the cover.
2. I signed up to read it and then read the blurb.
3. I was super wary because I don't like cheating and I never considered swinging as anything else. (Judgey McJudgerson, I know)
4. It is hot as F@CK. I know that's crude but it's hot.
5. As hot as it was, I was still not sure because well...judgey.
6. What a freaking shock!!!!! Didn't see that coming. I mean part of it yeah, but not that surprise.
7. I can't possible imagine the pain the shock caused.
8. Happy that things went the way they did but would love to see a certain someone get their just desserts...
Not only am I judgey, but vengeful too. 😉
I am actually over my judgey...well in this story. I'm sure it will come back soon. However, the story made it work. I won't say better, but made it work.
It's a rough read for the hopeless romantic because well they start out with trouble. In the end, it all works out. See, even the hopeless romantic in me is happy.

This book intrigued me simply because I don't think I could ever ever be in a swinger relationship. So I wanted to see what an author could do with this kind of story and let me tell you these authors made it 100% worth it. The synopsis draws you in but there's so much more to this story. You get easily drawn into this story and it keeps you turning those pages. Before you know it hours have passed and you are completely invested in these characters lives. It's not as simple as you might think and the depth of the characters and story was beautifully written. Trust me when I say you definitely want to see what happens with these two couples. I was blown away but some of the turns this story took and was it made it even better.
