Purchase Link
Cade and Trevor have been best friends ever since they were kids and share everything including women. They never thought they would find a woman who would accept them both but the minute they meet Riley they know that she is the one for them.
When Riley walks into Cade's club she had no idea that she would find herself involved with not one guy but two. Just moving to New York from Washington state she never expected to meet two guys that would not only dominate her in the bedroom and the couch, and the pool room but her heart as well.

TABLE FOR THREE by Lainey Reese is super hot and sexy and readers will fall in love with Cade and Trevor as much as Riley  I loved the fact that the minute they met they just knew that they were it for each other. How could Riley or any woman resist when two hot guys want nothing more then to make you feel good?
 It is no secret that I am a fan of menages and books like TABLE FOR THREE only makes me love them more.  The only thing that I would have really loved was a love scene between Cade and Trevor cause I know there is something there between them that they may have not explored.

The only thing I hope after reading TABLE FOR THREE is if there is a book featuring Brice?? I would love to read it.


She’s taking two bites out of the Big Apple.
New York, Book 1
Riley Ramirez knew that moving to New York would change her life. She just didn’t expect it to start on her very first night in town. Her attraction to nightclub owner Kincade Marshall is instant, mind-blowing—and mutual. When she finds he is a Dom who requires her complete surrender, even when it comes to submitting to his best friend, Trevor Wellington, she finds herself willing and eager to embrace the sexual adventure.
From their earliest days, Cade and Trevor have shared everything, including women. Yet it only takes one night with Riley to know she is their forever lady. Convincing her that this is more than a temporary fling, though, will take every tool in their sensual arsenal.
As Cade and Trevor set their sights on Riley, however, they’re unaware—until it’s almost too late—that someone is targeting their fragile relationship. Someone who’s taking deadly aim at Riley. Suddenly their struggle to keep their forever woman is a fight to keep her alive…
Warning: This book contains m/f/m ménage, bdsm play, lots of steamy p.d.a, and a fine dining experience that will leave you salivating for more.

Guest Post: Why BDSM/Kink?

Initially I set out to write a romance without smut.  I very much wanted to write a Christian acceptable romance novel.  I had read a couple of Christian romances and was left insulted every time.  The books I read were so lacking in intelligence that to me it was like they were saying women who read romance didn't have a brain.  Like, just because we want romance it means intrigue, humor, mystery or dialogue can be left out and we'd never miss it.  It angered me so much I wanted to prove to them that romance lovers were also smart!

Then I started writing and the story kept dragging me into the bedroom!  Every time I sat at the computer and started typing I saw one love scene after another until I was venting to my mother about how much trouble I was having.  She told me (and I quote) "Jesus Christ!  Write what you want!  It's just your fantasies; it's not like anyone is going to think you did those things.  Write what is in your heart and let the world do what it wants with it."

So, I did.  I opened the flood gates and this is what poured out of me.  See, I write for everyone like me who's ever read a novel where the hero is just about to go too far...and then he doesn't.  For every time you think the hero is going to be demanding and rough and take her no matter what...and then he doesn't.  For everyone who's dreamed of not just putting your body in the hands of a strong handsome too good to be true hunk of a man (or two or three) but having him  take it. And then do everything to you that you never dared allowed yourself to ask for....

Excerpt for A Table For Three:

The table was under the second floor balcony, away from the dance area with a wall behind them. The shield came up from the floor in a semicircle sealing them against the wall. As soon as it reached the ceiling, the hollow glass filled with a smoky, swirling mist. It never completely filled. The smoke allowed shifting glimpses in as well as out. It was a favorite with the voyeurs as well as the exhibitionists.

Riley’s whispered, “Wow,” made him smile, and he shifted his gaze to her. She looked like she had just seen a magic trick, and her delight was unmistakable.

“Riley,” he said, “my name’s Cade. I don’t think you realize the type of club you’ve stumbled into. I’m going to make myself perfectly clear.” He never broke eye contact as he spoke, picked up her martini, and brought it to her lips to drink. She was staring at him with wide eyes. He had a hard time keeping the smile off his face when she wrinkled her nose at the first sniff of the drink he had ordered her. Her hands fluttered when she tried to take the drink form him and realized he intended to hold it for her while she sipped from his hand. This was supposed to be a serious moment, and she was making him smile.

“Tell me something. What do you hate most? Something so bad you can’t stand it.”

“Spinach,” Riley answered quickly. “What about you?” she asked.

“No. No questions now. Just listen.”

Spinach? Cade chuckled and shook his head. He had asked dozens of girls that question and heard everything from spiders and snakes to pap smears. This was the first time anyone had picked a food. Damn, it looked like he was going to be going without some of his favorite dishes for the foreseeable future. He liked spinach.

“Okay, spinach,” he continued. “That’s your word. That’s your safety net. From this moment forward, that word is your way out. If something hurts, if something is too much, if in any way this is more than you want or think you can handle, that one word is your way to stop everything. Think about that. Never use that word lightly. Never say it unless you want to walk away and never look back. No matter what is happening or what we’re doing that word is your assurance that you have control.”

She slowly stopped sipping as his words went on, and he could see by the look in her eyes she was starting to get an idea of the direction this night was going to go. He didn’t see fear, only a serious contemplation of what she was hearing.

“Riley, I want you to understand that will be the only control you have when you are with me.” She gulped loud enough for him to hear and squirmed in her seat again. No, she wasn’t afraid, she was curious and turned on.

“Take another sip.” He hadn’t taken the glass from in front of her, but she had stopped drinking. He waited to say anything else until the drink was half gone. Then he heard her mumble with another wrinkle of her nose that she probably should have said alcohol instead. He set the drink down and took her delicate chin in his hand as if he needed to assure that she didn’t miss what he had to say next.

“It starts now. Right here, right now. If you do not want to get bent over this table and taken in this booth, I suggest you say spinach. I’ll let you go with the warning to never come back here again unless you’re ready for it.”

Lainey lives in beautiful Washington State.  She's the youngest of five and always wanted to be a writer.  Her first novel -A Table for Three- was nominated for best debut novel of 2010 by The Romance Review and marked a dream come true for Lainey.
With her third published release -Damaged Goods- Lainey saw another of her dreams realized when she took a leap of faith to become a full time author and left the safety net of a day job behind. 
Now she spends her days writing with her dog at her feet and a cat curled in her lap and asks herself a dozen times a day; how'd I ever get so lucky?
