Story Overview:
Never venture out of bounds without a buddy—preferably two.
Dara’s past four incredible years have been lived to the fullest. Along with her best friends, Kane and Jack, she’s left no local wilderness unexplored, no ski slope unchallenged. Yet lately she wonders why they’ve never seen her as more than a buddy with breasts. When—or if—either man will cross that unspoken line.
It’s a line Kane eyes harder every day. Since high school, he and Jack have shared everything. A condo, vacations—and their best girl. Kane’s ready to get serious about his wilderness school and outfitter business, and that includes putting down roots. Preferably with Dara.
Wary of the men who’ve recently been sniffing around Dara, Jack has a growing sense that he or Kane better make a move soon, or they’re going to lose out on their perfect match. Question is, who does she prefer…and who’s going to bring their easygoing trio to an end?
Overhearing the boys arguing over her, Dara’s floored—and torn. Choose between them? No way. Drastic measures are called for, a plan for their annual holiday getaway that will clarify her feelings once and for all—or lose everything in a sexual storm of whiteout proportions.
Warning: Old friends turned lovers can get into the most trouble—exhibitionism, bondage, spanking. Anal sex, oral sex, unauthorized use of ski safety harnesses, icicles in the hot tub… The author apologizes in advance for any melted monitors.

My Review:
A bit of menage on the ski slopes...HOT! Friends-to-lovers....my favorite style of romantic story. You should already know that I am going to like this one, right? ;o)

These three have been best friends for 4 years. Dara has debated for years about making her move on one of these guys, but after an overheard conversation between the two guys, Dara decides to take advantage of their upcoming ski weekend to figure out which one she wants. They all arrive at the ski lodge and she proposes a menage...just for the weekend.

They all know that this is just for the weekend and both guys are desperately hoping that they will be the one chosen. All three are best friends and no one wants anything to come between the three's friendship. 

There is a vulnerability to their friendship that has been exposed by their introducing sex into the mix and they are all three leery of what is going to happen. All three care desperately for each other and no one wants anyone to be hurt. Jack is by his nature a Dom. He NEEDS to take charge in the bedroom, but he's afraid of intimidating the other two. Kane is intimidated by the idea of having another man in the bedroom, but at Jack's urging tries to let go and just enjoy the weekend. Dara knows that she needs to take the weekend to truly decide which man she wants but as the weekend progresses, finds herself more and more torn by what the decision may mean for the three of them.

I really enjoyed this story and the interactions between the three friends...both in and out of the bedroom. I've always enjoyed the idea of romance on the ski slopes and this one did not disappoint. A great sexy book!!
