Question of the Week: Fantasy to Reality: Do you like to read steamy romance books where the story line circles around a hot sexy couple + 1 (or more)? Or is Ménage à trois one person too many for you?


Crystal L's answer: I have read some really great Ménage à trois or Polyamorous books. I'm currently reading Jayne Rylon's King Cobra. A few others that come to mind are Maya Bank's Colter's Woman, Sophie Oak's Bliss Series, Jayne Rylon's Night is Darkest and Lorelei James' Rough, Raw & Ready. As a temporary fantasy, the idea of Ménage or Polyamorous is fabulous! All of those people dedicated to your pleasure. HELLO! I'm selfish like that! Sign me up! Then reality intrudes. There's that much more laundry, dishes and bodies to clean up after. NOT! Fantasy ruined. What about you guys? I know some can't even stomach to read Ménage. Is it not for you? Do you enjoy the temporary fantasy a good book can give you? Or does reality kill it all when you think of the extra sets of boxers you'd have to wash?

Crystal's Answer: I generally prefer good ole' fashion couples in my romance books just because it is more believable for me. In reality I would imagine that it is extremely hard to make a lasting menage relationship work, and it takes a pretty talented author to pull off an authentic menage. That being said, that doesn't take away from the fantasy for me nor the extreme smexy overload when reading a well-written menage story. (My Hubs hasn't had a complaint yet either! *wink,wink*) Karin Tabke is one author that comes to mind as well as Lauren Dane. 
As for reality, well what girl doesn't dream about two handsome men seeing to their every desire at least once in their life? In my case, it's more then once heh but then I think about everything else that comes with a relationship too and decide, is enough! lol Wishing everyone a fabulous and pleasure filled weekend, whether it be in fantasy or reality! ;)


  1. I completely agree with you ! Hot fantasy but not so much in reality. Your comment reminds me of a time when someone was talking to me about whipped cream and chocolate in the bedroom and I was all "hey, who's gonna wash the sheets afterwards ?!!"
    Have a nice week-end ;)

  2. Is it bad to say that I'm happy with it as long as I don't have to read girl on girl? (I'm sorry, but it's soooo boring....)
    Then again, it just makes me jealous :P Like the book Tart could ever be reality...
