Kena Bass is a student who is just about to graduate, but she is short a few credits. She is looking for a way to make up those credits so she can graduate with her class.
Dan Madison works for an advertising company, and is a guest speaker at a seminar Kena attends.
When Kena gets a look at Dan the first time, she falls completely in lust with him. Fortunately for her, he feels the same way, so when they are finally able to get together, sparks fly. They have a whirlwind romance that ends in happily ever after, or does it? When their mutual friend Elana calls unexpectedly, Kena invites her to join them for the weekend. But Elana is not happy, and that is hard for Kena who loves her friend. One thing leads to another and Kena suggests the unthinkable. Will they go through with it, and if they do will their marriage survive the fallout?
First let me say, I enjoyed reading this story. The relationship between Dan and Kena is beautifully described. However, while I enjoyed reading about the lovemaking and the emotional bond between Kena and Dan, I had a hard time understanding why Kena suddenly needed to help her friend in the way that she suggested. For me, this just did not jive with a couple that were so obviously soul mates. It was not believable to me that Dan just went along with it, nor that Kena suggested it. I would have liked to have seen the book focus on Kena and Dan’s relationship and more of their story being told. Having the ménage at all seemed to be more of an afterthought. Despite these things, the author has written an engaging story.
