12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…
She’s the fantasy they’ve always wanted to share…
Best friends Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos share almost everything—a history in the Navy, their sailboat building and restoration business, and the desire to dominate a woman together, which they do at Baltimore’s exclusive club, Blasphemy. Now if they could find someone who wants to play for keeps…
All Hartley Farren has in the world is the charter sailing business she inherited from her beloved father. So when a storm damages her boat, she throws herself on the mercy of business acquaintances to do the repairs—stat. She never expected to find herself desiring the sexy, hard-bodied builders, but being around Jonathan and Cruz reminds Hartley of how much she longs for connection. If only she could decide which man she wants to pursue more…
As their attraction flashes hot, Jonathan and Cruz determine to have Hartley for their own. But the men’s erotic world is new and overwhelming, and Hartley’s unsure if she could really submit to being both of theirs to take…forever.
A Special Cross-Over Release with Jennifer Probst’s Reveal Me from her Steele Brothers Series!
So I read this last Saturday and I think that my one word summarization I put up on GoodReads until my review date (today, woot) came up explains my feelings about this book about as well as any other words could, though you will be getting a lot more of them, ha.
"Oh Master Quinton these 2 Masters are giving you a run for your money straight to my heart"
Any of you that have seen my reviews on this series in the past know that I hold a very special place in my heart for Master Quinton so to say that these guys are ranking up there with him is saying a lot.
These two Masters stole my heart with their big soft hearts and desire to find love.
Now as if you couldn't tell from the cover Their's to Take is a ménage à trois story and I only tell you this because I don't want you going into something you may not be a fan of. I am pretty certain you picked up on the fact already, but you know just in case.
Jonathan and Cruz have been basically inseparable since their days in the Navy. Through the years these two have become more than just best friends. They own a business together, they share a similar tastes in their love life, they share a love of each other, thought it has never been more than platonic, they have shared in romantic escapades and now they are considering sharing one woman for good.
Hartley, has had rough go of it lately. She's been making her way as best she can, keeping her father's and her dream alive since his passing. She wouldn't say things have been tough but they haven't been easy and now that a storm (and another persons boat) have put her lively hood and dreams on the line she finds herself teetering on the edge of losing it all. Thankfully for her business, he boat, and maybe even her heart as well as, ahem, other parts of her anatomy, which have been neglected for years, Jonathan Allen comes to the rescue and with him comes Cruz Ramos. Hartley can't get these two off her mind and luckily for her it seems they can't stop thinking of her either but can she be what they need and is she willing to give it all to them.
Readers, this book is steamy with a capital S! Laura Kaye has been bringing us some amazing Erotica with this series and she took it off the charts with Theirs to Take. More importantly she gave us a beautiful story about finding love in places you never thought to hope for, in being true to yourself and exploring not only your options but your limits, and a book about standing by your friends even if sometimes it hurts your soul to do so. It is a book about just wanting to find your own happiness and hoping that the ones you love can find theirs as well.
Theirs to Take is a quick steamy read that you won't want to put down, and I will say that until recently I had no idea it is also a cross-over so the good thing about that is you can totally read it and not be confused or lost at all and also, helllooooo new series to read!
If you like your romances with a whole lot of heart, a beautiful story about trust and friendship, and with a good dose of *waggles eyebrows* steam than this is a fantastic book for you. You do not have to have even read the previous books in this series to read Theirs to Take. You will meet a few of the previous books characters but nothing will be said that will either ruin those books for you or confuse you while reading this one. Grab yourself a glass of something cold and pull out your electric fan before going in because you are going to need both! ;-)
~ HAPPY READING ~
**That good dose of steam I was talking about, you'll find some of it here, whew.****
From Laura Kaye:
I’m thrilled to be celebrating the release of my super hot and emotional Theirs to Take, the next erotic standalone romance in my Blasphemy series, about the twelve Masters who run and play at Baltimore’s most exclusive club. Theirs to Take is a sexy menage about what happens when two prior navy best friends and business partners meet a woman who makes them admit to desires they’ve never before voiced. I think you’re going to love Jonathan and Cruz! I know I adored writing them! Even more fun, there are characters and scenes in Theirs to Take that cross over with the amazing Jennifer Probst’s brand new Reveal Me – and the best part is that both are standalones so you can dive right in!
Now, read in for a taste of Theirs to Take…
Hartley woke up to the image of Jonathan’s handsome face mere inches from her own. She smiled, because in the peace of sleep, he appeared younger, and she could almost imagine him at eighteen, tanned with sun-streaked hair, racing into the waves, a board under his arm.
But she didn’t want the boy he’d been. She wanted the man he was now. She peered up over Cruz’s ridged stomach at his ruggedly handsome face and the tribal black ink running down his upper arms. Yeah, she wanted the men that both of them were. Sailors, veterans, builders, friends. Men so confident in their sexuality that they could share a woman with another man.
At least, she wanted to explore this thing between them. It wasn’t just that the sex had been amazing—which it had—it was that they’d made her feel so damn special. More than that, they’d made her feel a part of something bigger than herself. For the first time in so long.
And that feeling combined with being surrounded by all this sexy, hard flesh had arousal stirring in her blood again. It was like that dream she’d had, only better. Because this was real.
She shifted, and Jonathan’s eyes blinked open. One side of his mouth lifted in a little smile. “Hey,” he whispered.
“Hey,” she whispered back. Mentally, she debated, and then she decided to follow Scarlett’s advice once more. Just go for it. “Tell me…tell me to do something.”
He arched a brow, heat chasing the lazy sleepiness from his gaze. “You need us again.”
It wasn’t a question, which made his words about a million times hotter. He understood what she was asking him. “Yes,” she said.
“Then suck Cruz’s cock,” he whispered.
The command made her pussy clench with need. Wanting to wake Cruz up with her mouth, not movement, she shifted as gingerly as she could. And then she took his cock into her mouth and tongued and sucked him until he grew against her tongue.
“Eyes on me,” Jonathan said. She complied readily, hungrily. “That’s it. Make him hard.” His hand stroked the back of her hair, each stroke a little more firm than the last. As if to let her know that he could hold her down on that cock at any time.
Annnd that thought had her suddenly wet between her legs.
“Fuck,” Cruz rasped, stirring beneath her. His hand fell against her head, too.
A moan spilled from her. She loved the feeling of both of them guiding her mouth.
“She likes our hands in her hair, Cruz,” Jonathan said, eyes locked on hers. “Don’t you?” She nodded as much as she could with her mouth full.
Now Cruz was the one groaning, and Hartley couldn’t help but thrust her hips against the bed.
“God, I want to fuck her mouth, Jonathan.”
“Would you like that, Hartley?” A fist in her hair, he urged her head up. “Tell me.”
“Yes,” she said, wound incredibly tight from just a few moments of their dominance. “I would love that.”
“Then tell him. Tell Cruz to fuck your mouth.” Jonathan’s stare was dark fire.
