Three days. No rings...

Seth and Leila used to have trouble keeping their hands off each other. Passion, desire, love—it was all there. Yet, eight years after their whirlwind marriage and kids, they’ve settled into a life where choosing Letterman over Leno is considered a wild night.

Seth knows things need to change. But when he hears his wife call into a relationship radio show and admit she’s been tempted to cheat, he realizes how far off course they’ve gotten. He comes up with a dramatic plan. Three days. No rings. He’ll take Leila to The Ranch, a resort where any sexual fantasy can be had, and give her the freedom to have whatever or whomever she wants.

However, Seth doesn’t intend to simply stand by and watch other men fulfill Leila’s dark desires. He has a lot more bad boy in him than his wife suspects and he knows there’s only one man who can give her what she needs. Now he has to show her why that man is him.

My Review:

This was a really interesting book. You don't find many erotic books (at least not that I've noticed) that deal with married couples who have reached the staid period of their relationship. I have to say that I find this kind of book really exciting. It's nice to see a couple who really love each other rekindle their romantic flames.

In this book, Seth and Leila have been married for 8 years. They got married when she was 19 and he was 21 when she became pregnant. He's been her only lover. Before her, he was a musician with all the wild-oats that entailed. He had and lived those wild single days, but put them behind him when he got married to Leila. Unfortunately, their very vanilla sex life has become a bit staid for both of them. The romance is definitely gone.

This book seemed very real to me. I thought both characters were portrayed beautifully especially their individual desolation about where their marriage is going. Neither one of them wants to give up, but neither one of them know what to do to save things at this point either. This isn't a simple, go live a fantasy and everything works out perfectly kind of book. Things are a lot more rocky and real than that, which I liked. I liked that the author made this realistic while at the same time, it was incredibly hot. Really just a fabulous read!
