About The Book

I’m a scoundrel
Playboy. Man whore.
Basically, I get around, and I’m not afraid to admit it.

So when my best friend opens up Salacious Players’ Club and asks me to head the construction, how could I say no?
Now we’re on a cross-country road trip touring other kink clubs, and I couldn’t be happier.
Life is good.

Then Hunter suddenly asks me to sleep with his wife…while he watches.
I’ll do anything for my best friend, but this is the one request I should say no to.
Isabel is the woman of my dreams, but she’s his.
And the exact reason I should say no is the one reason I say yes.
Because it’s not only Isabel I want.

These are the two most important people in my life, and if we go down this path, how will I ever be able to walk away?
I’m not sure my best friend understands just how much I’m willing to do for him—and why.

It might have started with a kinky arrangement, but it led us here, right where we’re supposed to be

My Review

First Impressions

Give Me More is the third book in the Salacious Players Club and this is the book that I have been the most excited for. There has been so much hype surrounding this book here so to say that I was apprehensive is an understatement, because sometimes….alright…many times over-hyped books just won’t end up working out for me. But I can say that this totally worked for me! I absolutely loved this, I don’t think it’s better than Praise BUT it does come to a close match for it. This is also an MMF romance, so I know menage isn’t going to work out for everyone. But I found this book to be so intricately layered and just beautiful in every way. These three just have my heart and I do think that this one is worth ALL of the hype and really all of these books are worth the hype. Sara Cate is a brilliant author and she will pull you so quickly into a story.

They can joke about secret desires all they want, but none of them will ever truly know how agonizing it is to keep yours in forever because mine will never, ever come out. I won’t let it.

Summary

Our story begins with our trio Drake, Hunter, and Isabel. Drake and Hunter have been best friends for over two decades, they have had each other’s back through their poor home situations. Drake has been open about him being bi and his sexual preferences. But Hunter grew up in a home with an emotionally abusive father who put him down constantly and has kept his attraction to men to himself and not even Drake knows of it although there has always been an intense bond between them that they aren’t even fully aware of yet. Then enters Isabel, and Hunter worked for years to be worthy of her and now they have been married for a decade. They have always kept Drake close to them, but when they together go on a tour to explore sex clubs throughout the country, to see how they can make improvements for their club and make connections, through a shibari scene, Hunter starts to realize he wants Drake and Isabel together. As the three of them start to explore the change in their relationship, Hunter will have to face up to his past, because merging Drake into their dynamic will mean he will need to admit his feelings for Drake and he wants to be worthy of both Drake and Isabel and keep them together as they always have been only now…..they are stronger than ever and he will fight for them all…..

Maybe the reason my marriage is so sacred to you is because you’ve always been a part of it

What I Loved

I don’t get a chance to read MMF very often, most menage situations I have read have usually been MFM, but I actually adore MMF. I will say that I absolutely was blown away by this book and how it was crafted by the author. Menage can be tricky sometimes, especially when there is a higher level of heat because you need to see the layers between it especially when we have a married couple and then throw in a third individual into their dynamic, I want to assure you that the way this story developed was so intricate and slow-building in the relationship aspect. There is a high level of heat but I do think that it’s the sex scenes where we really see the development of their relationship, it’s these small moments that come out of these scenes that really tie these three together. I really enjoyed the way we get the aspects of BDSM and sex play in this book. It was delightful to see how playful these three are together, of course, they have a friendship as their foundation so seeing the embrace of what they have been feeling and seeing their slow journey together and finding their own path was such a beauty to witness and read. I absolutely adored the way they learned to let go of past reservations and embrace this new change in their relationship.

We are stumbling into dangerous territory, but I might as well be drunk on his touch because there’s no righting this collision course we’re on now

What I Struggled With

Nothing really, Hunter took a bit too long embracing himself but other than that, this book came close to perfection.

Overall View

Give Me More is a stunning installment that will literally capture your attention, gravitate your emotion, raise your libido and leave you breathless with the level of intricate intimacy that is displayed. A ROMANCE GUARANTEED TO LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS!

We’ve always been best friends, but maybe that’s what best friends are—soulmates in disguise.

    I’ve been seeing this one everywhere and I am so intrigued! I guess I better hold off and start with book one, though.
