Official blurb:
 Three's a magic number in this steamy love triangle set in a British stately home. Alice Brown has just landed her dream job. Property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It's only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it's the boost up the career ladder she so desperately needs. Unfortunately, things don't get off to the best start, when Alice finds her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Far from being embarrassed by what's happened, Jeremy turns things around on Alice and makes her out to be the one in the wrong. So when he and his best friend and head of security, Ethan Hayes, throw an ultimatum at her, she's so stunned and confused that she goes along with their indecent proposal. When the dust settles and Alice has time to think about things, she realises that perhaps it isn't such a bad thing. There are worse things she could be doing to advance her career, after all

When I first started reading this book, I had no idea what I had gotten myself into. Alice, one of the main characters is a strong and independent woman who just landed her dream job. I really liked reading about her from the very beginning and I couldn’t wait to see where the author was going with the story. I was very surprised when Jeremy and Ethan proposed an odd agreement with Alice. It was a very unique way to start a threesome relationship for sure! But, Alice agrees and does what she thinks she needs to do in order to keep her job. I really did enjoy reading about this group romance, and I really thought the author did a great job writing the different steamy sex scenes as well. I wished there had been more of a storyline, and I felt at times it was just about the sex. It was worth the read though and I am looking forward to reading more from this author!
