STRANDED by Eve Vaughn

Description:¬†After Rafe’s divorce, he and his best friend, Grant, decide to find a woman to share as a wife. Just a few weeks and one terrible plane crash later, they find themselves stranded on a deserted island with the vivacious and sexy, India Powers.

The Good: The sex was hot, hot, hot, and the threesome story gets fully explored, both politically and romantically. I also liked that both guys and the heroine were emotionally damaged, as it made me much more invested in the characters.

The Bad: Grant was, in my opinion, the most interesting character, but gets the least development. Also, the dialogue was a bit stilted and rough in a few places.

The Naughty: Menage a trois, anal, explicit language.

Editing issues: None

Publisher: Samhain Publishing

Length: 232 pages

Final Grade: B

    This was my first menage book and I loved it like damn and whoa. I re-read it often. I particularly like the way they deal with the political implications of the choice they’ve made. I think some menage books are unrealistic in that they never deal with the fact that this alternative lifestyle is likely to raise more than a few eyebrows. I read one where they had a “wedding” with the heroine “marrying” BOTH men! And nobody batted a lash. Uh no. That’s just crazy.

      It was my second, but it’s by far my favorite. I loved the dichotomy between their island relationship and their “real world” relationship and the acknowledgment that major emotional and social adjustments would need to be made in order for them to live like this.
