I have to admit that I don't read many menage stories so I'm in no way an expert on this type of book but I fancied reading something different and I really enjoyed Sharing Hailey. This kind of relationship only tends to work for me if I can feel a real emotional connection between all of the characters involved and in this case I think that was really well done. Hailey has known Mark and Tony forever so they have a lot of shared history and a very close friendship. Even though the two guys aren't into each other physically they do have a strong bond and care about each other. Neither of them is prepared to lose their friendship but above all else they both love Hailey and want her to be happy. From the beginning they are convinced there is a way to make things work between them and it is actually Hailey who is the one doesn't think things can last long term.
There were times when I felt the guys were rushing into things a bit too quickly so I was pleased that Hailey forced them to take a step back occasionally.Read more ›
Even though it was a good read it wasn't a wow read..
The characters other than Hailey only seemed touch upon and not fully developed..
Though the story flowed well, the lesser connection with the other characters left me wanting more from the story...
There is a lot about this that I really liked but I think I would have to say the main two points are the following:-
Tony and Mark aren't bi or gay. They are two straight men in love with the same women and have come to an arrangement on how they can 'have their cake and eat it too'! This is probably the first book that I have read where this issue is raised and it was done in a very thoughtful manner.
The second point is how the whole domestic abuse situation was dealt with. I thought there was a lot of information given in a sensitive manner that helps you to realise what people (and I use that word deliberately as it isn't always the female who is the victim) go through, their thought processes and the strength that is needed for them to move forward.
On the whole a sweet and spicy novella with some LOL moments. Wonderful for a debut novel.
The story is about Hailey who has just broken up with her boyfriend - Daniel. She is jetting off to see her brother and his wife, on vacation in Hawaii. She is flying out with her brothers friends - Tony and Mark. They are her friends too.....only unbeknownst to her, they have more than "friends" on the menu.
Whilst the story gets going quickly from the get go (positive), you never really understand too much about Hailey and her background until you are further into the book (negative). So you never emotionally connect or invest in her. Also Hailey has this frustrating self-defecating manner "average height, average looks, average eyes" - turns out to be a size 6, 5'8", with long brown hair and brown eyes and is described as the film star lookalike! Yeah, love! You sound like you look awful! Turns out that Hailey probably has self-doubt and a lack of self-worth because of her relationship with Daniel and the negative view he took of her. Now don't get me wrong - domestic violence - is an extremely serious subject, and if we had known early on that Hailey was setting herself free from a DV situation, perhaps we could have connected better with her.
The situation of Hailey's brother - Jake - is a bit weird. He comes across as a bit of a jerk, but turns out to be a good guy really and you never get to understand why he was acting the way he was, again an element of the story that either didn't need to be there, or needed to be followed through. There were a few strings like and a few inconsistencies. Like when Daniel is on the loose - the tension sort of ratchets up and then all of a sudden, days have past, and the storyline sorts of skips - missed opportunities.
The menage scenes were fairly good.Read more ›
