Reviews of Loren's Previous Novels:
Wanderlust -- TBQ
Yours All Along (#7.5) -- TBQ
I was pulled in from the very start of Loving You Easy. I loved the premise for it: hacker heroine and the two owners of a kinky role-play type video game? Yes, please, sign me up! And I was NOT disappointed. I didn't want to put this one down -- something worth mentioning because I've had a bit of an off-and-on reading slump lately with books that I was all too happy to put down. Not so with these three, I had to know what was going on next.
Cora is great -- she's smart and extremely tech savvy, but I also loved that she wasn't completely comfortable in her own skin. After all, haven't we all been there? I mean, I hated that she felt that way, but it was something I could relate to quite a bit. I loved that she was more tomboyish, but that she didn't have to change in any way to get her man. Er, men. ;)
Ren and Hayes are both extremely sexy doms. Ren is more on the carefree, fun side, Hayes more serious take-control, though he's never anywhere near asshole territory. They both have some secrets from their pasts, and that definitely factors into the story, with a bit of a suspense thread weaving throughout.
Triads can be so difficult. But I thought the relationships here progressed nicely.
Ren and Hayes had been friends for many years but always fought an attraction, choosing to share women during an occasional scene rather than act on those feelings alone. Until now.
Note: Ren identifies as bi, Hayes has messed around some with a few men in the past but never self-identifies in the book as bi. I took it as Hayes not wanting to label himself, or unsure of how to label himself, because once they decided to be together, he's all in, sexual orientation be damned.
Cora really has her relationship with Hayes start in the game -- but they didn't know it at the time. I still felt like their relationship moved smoothly from the game to real life. I only wish we could have seen one of Dmitry and Lenora's game play scenes in action. Besides being sexy as hell, it would have added a bit more to their relationship development, especially later on.
Cora and Ren's relationship was a bit harder to pick up on. I could see the lust, of course, on their first meeting, but the relationship (long term) was perhaps a bit less clear than Cora/Hayes or Hayes/Ren. Even so, I still really enjoyed all of the pieces of this triad relationship, and ultimately believed that they all fit together perfectly.
And the sex . . . god DAMN, the sex tho! Deliciously dirty and so very satisfying. You may burn up while reading. Especially their first all-out triad scene -- which shows up towards the end, though there's other delicious teasing and action before that. That scene was so dirty, it should have come with a "Do not read in public" warning. To give a hint of the scene's hotness, here ya go:
Also, I don't believe I have ever come across that particular . . . position . . . in the (admittedly few) triads I've read. But. I. Can't. Get. It. Out. Of. My. Mind. Even more than a week later. UNF.
Here's a few fun quotes, in case you're still unsure:
And one from Ren and Cora:
There's BDSM in this one, but it's very mild, really, and deals more with the D/s part. If you're new to the BDSM genre, or like it on the tamer side, I think you'll find Loving You Easy fits the bill. This is part of a series
4 1/2 STARS!
