Rough, Raw, and Ready  - Lorelei James

These 3 had me like...

Wow!! I don't know what it was about this story, but I could not stop reading it. I love love LOVE Edgard. He's my baby.. And I totally love Trevor and Chassie. Theirs' is obviously not a conventional union by any means but there is still beauty within it.

I honestly believe that what I love above all about this book is that although it pushed my boundaries, (I mean I still am weirded out a bit) Chassie, Trevor, and Edgard forced me to recognize and embrace what is simply what I call, the "Human Condition" when it comes to these three. I mean I cried, laughed, covered my eyes. Blushed and then blushed some more. But I ultimately understood that the heart wants what the heart wants.

I love how you see the struggle the uncertainty and the fear. But it was also clear that they couldn't just walk away from it. They couldn't pretend that it wasn't real. That it wasn't there.

Therefore their approach to this was very realistic. And I loved that. I love how this author was able to execute and incorporate the struggle but to have the emotions unfold in a very natural, realistic way. It takes a special kind of woman. A strong secure one, to tackle this. To embrace it. And to come to accept it as an added blessing to one's life. This would test anyone's mettle. So I MUST give Chassie her props. Cos I really don't know what I would do if I were in her situation.

I love how Chassie and Edgard had their own emotional bond outside of what they shared with Trevor. I thought that this came across beautifully.

It is a very hot, emotionally charged erotic read. I mentioned earlier I blushed alot, well I blushed majority of this book. So you've been warned.

There is an interesting side plot outside of these three that keeps you interested. You learn more about Trevor and Edgard's own family as well.

This type of story/plot is not something that I usually read. I tend to shy away. It's not my normal cup of tea but I truly loved this book.

All in all this was a good read. This is not a series that I follow but I would recommend this book.
