Description
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.

Review:
So, long-awaited and devoured in one sitting but a nice satisfying little appetizer for Melt Into You, Roni Loren’s next full length novel to be released next month.This is the story of Seth and Leila. Leila is Jace’s (from Crash and Melt Into You) little sister. She and Seth got together when they were still at college. She was a virgin, he a little more experienced. They were very much in love but she fell pregnant. He stood by her despite the disapproval of his family and they married and made a life together.

Now, seven years on, they’re in a rut. They function as man and wife, mother and father but never seem to really see each other and sex has become a once a week vanilla missionary position horizontal shuffle duty and, now, even that is fading away, the spark completely extinguished. Their priorities have shifted from each other to mortgage payments and careers.

Seth feels he needs to do something, he loves Leila after all, and is galvanised into action when he accidentally overhears Leila calling a talk radio station to confess that she almost strayed with her new client, Kade. Mmmmm, Kade. Sorry, where was I??

Jace advises Seth to take Leila to The Ranch, a high end BDSM retreat, every room equipped with shackles and restraints. They start to play and all goes well, at first until Seth gets a call from his boss and tries to put an end to the weekend. So, this is decision time – what takes priority – their careers and mortgage payments or the future of their marriage?

I very much enjoyed it – it’s definitely BDSM lite despite the club setting, nothing very hardcore. It’s a sweet story – Seth and Leila’s love for one another is obvious and this is all about reigniting the fire in their relationship which had become buried under the weight of their responsibilities.

Jace is up next in Melt Into You and I really hope that Kade gets his own novel sometime soon. Happiness is a warm sadist, after all!!!
