Kama Sutra, Tantra, Ménage…are you ready to blush?

Hanna Lane wishes she could shed her inhibitions and unleash her wild side in the bedroom.  When she meets J. M.–a Kama Sutra and Tantra master–they embark on a sizzling path of discovery, exploring the ancient sensual arts and discovering new techniques that allow Hanna to unlock her naughtiest fantasies and make them a red-hot reality.  But when Hanna’s exboyfriend Grey re-enters her life determined to win her back, Hanna longs to share herself with both men.  But can she tell J.M. and Grey her most taboo fantasy?  And who will win her for keeps? 


Hanna and Grey were the perfect couple on the outside. On the inside, however, things weren’t so perfect.  Grey had a childhood illness that caused him to be sterile.  He feels that if he tells this little secret to Hanna, she will leave him. So he keeps it bottled up inside until Hanna asks him if he loves her.  He never says the words to her and she feels that they should separate.

Hanna also has a problem behind closed doors.  She has never had an orgasm. Grey has tried everything to help her find out why and to help her achieve it.  Before they break up, he enrolled them in a class that helps with Tantra and Kama Sutra in hopes of Hanna being able to figure out why.

Hanna refuses to go to the class out of embarrassment, yet Grey attends it in hopes of learning how to help her and win her back.  The teacher of the class, J.M, gives him pointers and reading to help him on the journey. J.M. meets Hanna at her store and they have a wild fling. She doesn’t know that JM is the instructor for the course. Thus, giving us a triangle where none of the people know about the other.

I found this book to be good, but not great.  I loved all of the characters involved. I also understand that some women have this problem, so the plot is not what bothered me.  What bothered me is the fact of the characters not knowing about each other.  It seemed to get repetitive and drawn out. I wanted them to come together and figure it out sooner.  I loved the ending and the witty dialogue the most. The sensual scenes were hot, but I actually cared more about the characters than the sex in this one!

Overall a great erotic read if you love this genre. The author has a great knack for telling her story with just the right amount of love, sex and sensuality to keep you hooked.


Very Good! I would recommend this book!
