Note: I received this review copy of The Silk Tie for free from the author in return for an honest review. The opinions and thoughts I share in this review are my own.

Please also note that this book is an erotic threesome (MMF) romance book and is not (in my opinion) suitable for under 18’s. Adults, please use your discretion to make your own decision.

The Silk Tie is a (very) erotic threesome romance with massive lashings of each. Unlike many erotica books, this one doesn’t feel like smut has been put in for the hell of it. In fact I found it a very romantic and loving story with wonderfully developed and developing characters. The sex is a big but fantastic part which certainly got me a little (ok, very) hot under the collar.

Hayley and Gabe are a very happily married couple living in London. Both lawyers, though working at different firms, they love their jobs and try to get justice for their clients. Gabe’s latest client is Brent; a testosterone-filled and rather muscular man trying to divorce his cheating wife. In the midst of meetings and conversations, including one about Brent’s previous relationship with another man, a friendship between Gabe and Brent quickly develops along with an unspoken attraction on both sides. This attraction is noticed by Hayley who after much soul searching finds that she doesn’t mind and in fact ends up encouraging Gabe to seduce Brent and get the attraction out of his system, in the process doing a LOT of fantasising about male/male relationships. Gabe however finds it hard to come to terms with the attraction and breaks down when confronted by Hayley, professing that he isn’t gay. Once the decision is made though and the truth comes out, one weekend isn’t enough for Gabe and Brent – and not for Hayley either who finds that she is feeling attraction to Brent too. Will either Gabe, Hayley or Brent be able to move on or will a new norm be found for the three?

You’ll just have to read this fantastic book for yourself to find out.

I found the writing style of this book to be perfect for me. There was little knowledge or description imparted that I felt could have been left out – all seemed to move the story along at a gentle pace, enlarging on the characters, their interests and the relationships between the three characters. I was surprised how much the relationships between the three characters changed but was delighted by the progress and how the author put across the worry of losing a husband to another man, the attraction to someone a character shouldn’t be attracted too and so much more.

This is an erotic book though and I can safely say that the sex scenes were aplenty and scorching hot with good (and very detailed!) descriptions. I only felt that there was a little too much profanity in the form of the word ‘F**k’ during these scenes which got a little tiring in the end. I didn’t find it too away from those moments however.

I can’t wait to read more by this author – this is the best erotic romance book I have read so far and the only threesome book I have loved (and finished!).

Rating: ♥♥♥♥½ – I loved it (Note: This is rounded up to 5 where ½ is unavailable)
