High school teacher Erica Shannon isn’t a one-night stand kind of girl. Pair that with an aversion to relationships, and she’s resigned to no love life at all. Then one horrifying discovery propels her off her take-no-risks path, and into the arms of the stars of her midnight fantasies.
When his friend and fellow firefighter threatens to make a move on Erica, Corey figures he’d better get over the notion that she’s way out of his league—fast—before he has to get in line.
Griff never thought he’d get the chance to introduce Corey to the combustible delights of multi-partner play, until he senses the sheer volume of sexual energy surging beneath Erica’s repressed exterior.
A blazing night of passion has unexpected consequences. Corey is surprised to discover the woman of his dreams, and that he doesn’t mind sharing her—or himself—with Griff. But Griff finds his heart pulled down a romantic path he vowed he’d never venture again.
Erica? She’s got a problem on her hands. Hold two, hardwired-to-rescue firemen at arm’s length—and away from her heart—until she’s fought and won a battle that may well destroy her.
Warning: One tortured woman and two hunky Aussie firemen indulging in three-way love. Scenes of the male/female, male/male, male/male/female and the male/female/male variety (whew!). Also includes anal sex, mild spanking, cussing, phone sex, fire trucks and tearjerker moments.
I love it when I am introduced to a new author that I may not have found if it were not for being a reviewer here at GP. When a new list came out for us to review, I saw the description of this book and immediately became intrigued with this story simply because I identified with one of the characters. I was surprised at how quickly I became involved in this novel and became an instant fan of Sami Lee. Erica’s Choice is a sexy, heart wrenching story about love, self acceptance, and honesty that will have you falling in love with each turn of the page.
Erica Shannon is a high school English teacher on a mission. She has come into the local bar for months watching the men from the local fire station and has her mind set on experiencing a one night, no strings attached, menage with two of them. The question is; how does she get them to notice her? Corey and Griff are two of the hottest guys around and all of the prettiest women hang on them every time they come in. Why on Earth would they notice a drab little bookworm like her?
Corey couldn’t believe she was there again. That proper little teacher that comes in and sits in the corner all of the time. So much different than the easy girls that are always passing him their phone number. He knew she was sexy underneath all of those boring clothes but he also knew she was out of his league. Sure he had looks, but she was smart and would not want to hang out with a guy like him. He simply didn’t have the courage to go speak to her, or at least not until he saw Griff heading her way.
Griff was the bad boy of the bunch. Although a little older than the others, he had no problem picking up any of the ladies that came by the bar. For him, they were an easy distraction from what he really had his eyes on. He knew that Corey wanted that sweet little teacher in the corner. He’d seen him watching her for quite some time. He also knows Corey won’t do anything about it unless he pushes him to. Of course, Griff takes it upon himself to say hello to the little lady, forcing Corey to jump in and make an introduction.
After quick introductions and some revealing small talk, Griff discovers Erica’s true intentions and can’t believe his luck. He hit the jackpot and is about to get everything he wants in one night, at least to some extent. It only takes a few choice suggestions and an offer to give Erica a ride home. When the three of them find themselves in the shower at Erica’s apartment, Corey takes notice of a few things that he was unaware of. Griff takes notice of Corey’s observations and Erica is completely turned on. When the realization of the situation hits, and they realize one night is not enough to discover what is happening and things quickly get out of hand. Erica thought this would be a great way to finally live her fantasy before everything in her life changes. She knows Griff and Corey won’t want her after they find out the truth. But when the handsome duo refuses to leave her side, she simply can’t resist. One night turns into days, then weeks until she decides she must put a stop to it. Can she do what is needed to keep her heart from breaking? It isn’t until disaster strikes, that all three of them are forced to face the truth and learn that they have to love themselves in order to let someone else love them too.
I really was not expecting such an emotional story when I picked up this book and was happily surprised when I did. The characters are well developed and the individual insecurities they each face, goes deep. Corey is such a sensitive man, which defies his outer appearance of the sexy firefighter that all of the girls want. Griff has suffered rejection and a broken heart after revealing his true self to a past fling. As a result, he is a bad boy and has turned to being the commanding one in order to protect his heart and his ego from further damage. Erica has suffered her entire life with heartache and loss. She is determined that she is on her own and that no one could love her after all that she has to endure. When these three come together, each character reveals a side of themself that they never knew exisited. Their discoveries are beautiful and reading them made me feel like I was right there with them as their feelings unfolded and they learned how to love one another.
I simply loved this story. Sami creates a powerful dynamic between three characters that show how important it is to share feelings regardless of if you are in love with a man or a woman. Strong men can still be emotional and sensitive and sweet women can still be strong. In this story they are both. With raw emotion, tender kisses, hardcore sexual tension, and a three way relationship that will make you melt, this story is a must read!!!
Erica’s Choice as the first book I read by Sami Lee, and I really love this book a lot. When I read the description I don’t know what I was expecting, but what I got was a beautiful story of three people that work off each other to make the perfect trio.
Erica Shannon is a very conservative high school teacher, but this night she has decided to leave all that behind and seduce one or both to the sexy firefighter she has been lusting after for months. Corey Wachawski and Dale Griffin are beyond sexy, and she has been going to the same bar for months just for a glimpse of them. Unfortunately she loses her nerve to approach them once she is in the bar, and she sits down at a table with a book.
Corey has noticed the sexy redhead, but thinks she is out of his league. He may be sexy as hell, but he has absolutely no confidence when it comes to women. Dale is tired of seeing his friend struggle with wanting “Red”. So he challenges him to make a more, or he will take her home. What he doesn’t tell Corey is not only does he want Erica too, but he has been in love with Corey for years. He ends up talking to Erica alone while Corey is getting drinks, and discovers that she wants BOTH of them.
Erica has very personal reasons for wanting to keep this thing between the guys down to one night, but the guys keep at her. The breakdowns a lot of her walls, and show her that she is a very sexy and sensual woman. Can they talk her into forever??
Corey doesn’t understand at first the feelings he is having toward Griff. When Erica shows him that Griff is attracted to him too, he decides to go all in. But Griff has been hurt in the past, and he refuses to loose Corey’s friendship. Can Corey and Erica get Griff to take a chance on having it all with them?
I don’t want to give away too much more of this story, because it is so wonderful!! The twist and turns are what make it so great! I read this book in one sitting, because I couldn’t make myself put down my ereader! This book not only is smoking hot, but it emotions that grab onto your heart! I hope y’all enjoy this one as much as I have!
