Coming clean never felt so good…Grant and Vivi Michaelson share everything in their marriage: love, commitment—and their wildest sexual desires. But their relationship is tested when Vivi admits she wants a threesome with Grant’s old friend Cade, proposing their annual trip to the lake as the perfect opportunity to fulfill her fantasy.
All three of them are aroused by the idea. Vivi and Cade have long felt a smoldering attraction to each other…and Grant and Cade have hidden an illicit desire for decades. Going through with the ménage will test their boundaries, reveal old secrets…and maybe tear them apart. After all, there might be room for Cade in bed, but is there room for a third in their marriage?

Quick Rundown: During the after-glow of lovemaking, married couple Grant and Vivi begin to discuss their personal fantasies. When Vivi reveals that she has fantasized about having a full threesome with Grant and his best friend Cade, she’s surprised and aroused when Grant admits he’s up for it and they decide to approach Cade to make it happen.
Impressions after the first chapter: Holy smokin’ hotness!! During the first chapter Grant has a flashback to the night he and Vivi hatched their plan to seduce Cade into a threesome. Stepping back and witnessing Grant and Vivi discuss their yet unfulfilled fantasy was almost as hot as when they actually fulfilled it.
The Heroes: Grant is deeply in love with his wife and will do anything for her including doing whatever it takes to fulfill her fantasies. He is also very close to his best friend Cade and may have some deeper feelings for him beyond friendship. Cade is bisexual and has been attracted to Grant since he can remember. But he respects their friendship and Grant’s marriage. He’s also been a longtime friend and dance partner to Vivi. They’ve shared some flirtatious moments but they have never taken it any further than that.
The Heroine: Vivi is dedicated to her marriage and has a healthy sexual appetite. She is more than willing to experiment in the bedroom. She’d like to bring Cade into mix for a little fun and is totally fine with her husband and Cade being together sexually. She may have a few moments of doubt when it all goes down, but she manages to keep up with the boys.
What worked: I loved that this was a good, straightforward erotic romance. There may have been a few moments of doubt for all parties involved but no over the top drama. The sexual chemistry was smoking hot and I loved the first solo moments between Cade and Grant. Both of them were a little nervous, and also a little excited at this new turn in their relationship. Very hot!
What didn’t work: My usual complaint with novella’s I really enjoy…too short. Wish there was more.
Final conclusion: Coming Clean is my first read by Inez Kelley and I will be seeking out more from this author. She writes a wonderfully erotic story with characters to care about. This is a super hot read: m/f, m/m, m/m/f. Definitely recommended.
[…] as Granny used to say, “getting naked” was one thing, but “gettin’ nekkid” was a whole ’nother ballgame.
