From the first page I was hooked on this book. The main character is brilliantly written. Funny, innocent and sultry in all the right levels and places. The story is great, a wonderful and unusual romance involving three people. And the sex scenes are hot. Brilliantly written and not cringe worthy like some books can be. Highly recommended.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Erotica, Romance,
I really enjoyed this read. Its 232 kindle pages, so a decent length and the story covers a couple of weeks so its a very “in the instant” read, not one that covers a lengthy romance.
I love Devi, she’s always been mothered by not only her actual mother but her sisters too. They’re a very close Indian family and seem to view Devi’s mistakes in choosing a man in the past as meaning its something she needs help with now . they don’t seem to see that she’s grown up now – everyone makes mistakes, learn from them and maybe they don’t know her and her history as well as they think. Devi loves them though, knows they mean well even if it is irritating, so tends to go along with their suggestions but she’s shocked when Rana suggest a one night of hot sex with the two delicious twins that frequent their restaurant. Rana knows Jace finds Devi attractive, his frequent visits and questions about her have given that away. She’s heard from gossip that he share’s everything with his twin, and they only do one night stands, which she thinks is just what Devi needs to get her into the mood for dating again after her split a year past from her ex.
Devi thinks its a joke at first, these two fabulous hot guys can’t want her, she’s not the pretty sister, the outgoing one, that’s Rani, she’s the curvy, quiet one. She thinks she’s been set up by her sisters, that maybe they’ve put the brothers up to it and gets very upset. She’s long been attracted to Jace though, so once they convince her they mean it, they want her and its not been arranged by anyone but themselves its sizzling and sensual sex all round. Marcus thinks its their usual one nighter, but Jace is tired of that and has other plans. He just needs to convince Marcus and Devi that what he wants is what they all need. A big challenge there then Smile
Its a great read, hot and sexy, without being repetitive or overdone – I hate that. The sex scenes here are fresh and seductive, and feel very real. I love the dressing room scene when they’re clothes shopping and of course Miss Kitty, the sex shop owner, and then there’s the scenes at Devi’s family's party where Jace wrangles an incite for him and Marcus!! Its not just sex all the way, this novel covers some very real emotion; Devi’s family ( s)mothering, the party invite dilemma, a romance that’s as far from traditional Indian as one could get, and some real sadness in Marcus and Jace background. Issues from our past do affect us and its shown very clearly here how much potential damage can be caused, and how hard one needs to try to get past psychological blocks.
Stars: Five, a fun and sexy read with some serious points to make too.

This is a menage story involving 2 tortured brothers and their object of desire, by a relatively new author that I thought wove a much better story than some "classics" of the genre (I'm looking at you Maya Banks).
I liked all the leads. The brothers were suitably sexy with the "de rigeur" tortured childhood that can only be overcome by sharing a woman (becos erotica authors have convinced us that's the best therapy possible). The heroine, Devi, is an Indian woman who agrees to one wild one night stand never thinking it will develop further.
We get some insight into the family dynamics in an Indian family and particularly the protectiveness that occurs with the youngest (weakest?) members.
Finally - Devi is a chef and the description of the food is mouthwatering.
