Review: Laid Bare by Lauren Dane

Unexpected Desire…
It’s been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn’t in the cards just yet…
Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin’s past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd’s best friend, Ben, ends up in their bed—and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name. As the passion they share transforms Erin, will it be enough to help her face the evil she thought she had left behind?

This book was just Wow! Yeah, I know I should have known after reading so many great reviews but seriously I never imagined it to be so good.
Erin is a real hot rocker chick with Dreadlocks and a really open and direct personality.
Todd is really hawt but he’s a little shy concerning his preference in the rack. He’s afraid of other people judging him and thinks what he wants is wrong. Tsk, men!!! They can have issues.

They share a few nights but part ways for nearly ten years. When they meet again nothing is the same.
Todd is more confident with his sexuality. He realized that he will never be happy unless he stands up for his wishes and stops hiding his real self from the world.
Erin is still strong but has a few issues to live with. Her life was more than hard but she tries to stay herself and doesn't want to cower under her past. I totally admired her- strong but not untouchable by her past.
And then we have Ben- he’s a real sweety. He kind of stands at the sideways: In their relationship they are all kind of equal but for the outside he is the FRIEND living with the married couple. It's a hard situation and in the beginning he isn’t sure if his position is really the same one as Todd’s.

The story was great and we don’t have to talk about the sex part because we all know Lauren Dane totally knows how to write these scenes- shockingly good and in great detail. It’s one of the best m/f/m ménage books I ever read. Unlike most other books in this department this book has a real story- a heartbreaking, emotional story(me the crybaby). It’s full of raw emotion and sexual attraction all in a great mix. Just perfect!
Warning for all who don’t know Lauren Dane: This book is full explicit sex and definitely not for the faint of heart.

I instantly want to re-reads this book again to experience this story again after reading your review Susi. When I read Undercover from LD I already knew she could handle the Menage but with Laid Bare she exceded herself.

Glad you also enjoyed her story so :)

This book sounds really interesting (and hot can't forget that) I have never read a great menage book and this could be a first. I'm adding this on my TBR list.
I wasnt sûre about this book but i think your review did it! now i want to read it ;)

Hm I can't say if it's for me since I totally enjoyed her other book, but there was just too much dirty talk, and not enjoyable...But I did enjoy her book so much. Just don't know

Great review Susi and thanks for the link!

This book is a must read for readers who love contemporary hot/sexy books with an extremely well written emotional backstory. To say I loved this book is a huge understatement...

@Leontine I so know what you mean.

@pattepoilue Hope you enjoy i as much as I did. And yes, the cover is really great!

@Mandi Thanks hon!

@Linda You should try it. It's a real great story.

@Blodeuedd I'm currently reading Relentless and know what you mean. But Laid Bare is nothing like this. It's more emotional and heartbreaking.

@Pearl Your welcome. I bought the book because of your and Leontine's review so I thought it's just fair to link them.
