Woooow .... Intenso .

Las historias sobre trìos sexuales y romànticos nunca me gustaron mucho . Apenas me banco los triàngulos amorosos asì que la idea de compartir la cama y el corazòn con dos personas al mismo tiempo no me atrae en la ficciòn .

A menos que estè bien logrado .

Como es el caso the The Lovers .

Y dice asì :

La muchachita (Bettina) se enamora de otra chica (Audrey) por primera vez en su vida . Las dos pasan una semana ideal en un retiro para escritores junto con otros compañeros de la misma vocaciòn .

Tudo bom ,tudo legal hasta que llega a la playa el muchachito (Jack) y le caga la fiesta a la relatora.

Ahì se desencadena el nudo y empieza un romance entre tres . Un romance breve , con un poco de celos pero mucha atracciòn sexual ... Peeero ,las cosas se dan vuelta cuando uno de ellos pronto pierde interès y pasa a otro tema con otra persona forzando a los dos que quedan a aprender a seguir adelante solos ... pero juntos.


Muy Bien escrito , creible , mucha tensiòn sexual y sentimental . Bastante original para ser una novela eròtica .

Me gusta muchìsimo esta autora . Seguirè buscando libros suyos para leer .

First off a warning. This book is not safe for minors. It was quite a bit more than even I expected.

Bettina Boothe is a reclusive author that doesn't get out much. Most of her contacts on virtual and most of her conversations happen online. She is invited to an author's retreat and decides that, for once, she is going to brave the world and go do something. At the retreat she meets Audrey and Jack and sparks fly....in every direction imaginable.

The story was a little too simplistic for me to really get into. I understand the point of this book was the relationships and the sex, but the sex definitely took center stage. There seemed to be more pages describing what they were doing to each other than what they were feeling about it. And when they did get into the feelings it seemed very whiny. I didn't feel like I really go to know or relate to any of them.

Finally convinced that her online writing groups annual retreat was the perfect time to get out of her the safety of her home and regimented life, Bettina Boothe makes her way to the California coast. A couple of months is literally what the doctor recommended for her to help with her many social anxiety type problems. Finding everyone so friendly and welcoming gave Bettina hope for a productive few weeks, both in terms of the newest book she is working on as well as her other issues. One of her fellow writers stands out, Audrey LeClaire is stunning and captivating and offering more to Tina than she had ever even considered. Learning to let herself have what she wants regardless of what she used to think of the idea was a huge step in the right direction. And then when Jack Curran showed up, Tina finds herself caught between the jealousy of not being the focus of Audrey’s attention and desire to just be included. Finding herself in an intense emotional and sexual relationships opened her to what she had tried to avoid for so long, her own feelings.

Started off intense and never let up, the sexual scenes were many and close together. At some points the flow of the encounters were an easy and obvious conclusion, while other times the issue seemed to be forced in that direction to get more sex in. There was plenty of great sex, the characters were easy to follow in the progression of their relationships, the first person style of writing left some of Audrey and Jack as a mystery that I would have liked to know more about. Bettina’s story is pretty basic and common (the secluded and scared opens her wings and flies into the arms of … everyone), for some reason I had a difficult time connecting with her emotionally though, too much sex - maybe. This was a nice erotic distraction, fun and fast paced. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 037360551X, Paperback)

It seemed ideal —two months at a charming writers' retreat, surrounded by kindred souls. But Bettina Boothe wasn't prepared for just how long eight weeks truly was. Or that in the process, she would have to open up and reveal the most secret places in her body and soul.

Fortunately, her fellow authors do not share Bettina's self-consciousness and begin to draw her out of her self-imposed shell. One in particular—Audrey LeClaire—seems to ooze confidence and self-assuredness. Dark and petite, Audrey's potent sensuality draws the men and women in the workshop to her like flies to honey. Bettina is just as vulnerable, finding herself overwhelmed by a very unexpected attraction to Audrey who makes Bettina her special project.

But when Jack Curran arrives at the retreat, everything changes. Jack is tall, beautiful, masculine. A writer of dark thrillers, he is as mysterious and alluring as his books. He and Audrey are obviously an item, but they eagerly welcome Bettina into their bed. Suddenly Bettina finds herself swept up in a maelstrom of lust, obsession and jealousy, torn between her need for two very different people in a love triangle where she will either be cherished…or consumed.
