Triple Threat (Triple Threat Part 1) by Bella Jeanisse Review:

Goodreads Book Blurb:
Fair Warning: This an explicit book, with sex acts in almost every chapter. There are things some consider kinky, as well as multiple partners. The language is harsh at times, and the sex is graphic. If that is not what you are looking for, this book is not for you.

Crystal Atkinson plays bass in the band Triple Threat, and her best friend Chad McLoughlin plays guitar. But that's not all they play together.

When Crystal makes a deal for "no-strings-attached" sex with Chad, she thinks she's written the perfect arrangement for them. But two beats strike dissonant notes: Chad's been in love with Crystal for years, and Giovanni Saracino joins the band on drums.

Soon, Crystal's finding herself caught between the warring impulses of her body and her soul. She'll never be in love with Chad the way he wants, but no-one else has ever made love to her like he does. Giovanni's got a heart bigger than his outsized biceps, and Crystal responds to that in ways she never imagined.

Torn between the two men, both with plenty to offer her, Crystal has to choose between the needs of her heart and the aching demands from the rest of her body.

Genre - Adult/Erotica

Yikes! I Couldn’t Even Finish This One…

The Review:
I hate giving bad reviews but this book just left me scratching my head. Very rarely do I not complete a book, even if I don’t like it, but I got half way through this one and just gave up. I couldn’t take it anymore. Let me explain…

Triple Threat was an overindulgence of meaningless sex. The female lead, Crystal, was as indecisive as one could get. Her feelings kept going back and forth with questionable regularity and it seemed every male that floated in her orbit begged to have sex with her and couldn’t control themselves. She was constantly being rubbed up on and every guy had a “raging hard on”. I also didn’t like her character at all. She’s having sex with Chad while she has feelings for Giovanni while she dates Noah and thinks other guys are hot and wonders what it would be like to have sex with them. Really?!? A heroine doesn’t act this way.

Chad was an oversexed beggar who’s entire vocabulary consisted of “Baby I want you so much…” or “Please let me have sex with you baby…” or “I love you so much baby…”. Crystal never said the L word to him and he was fine emasculating himself just to get in her pants. There was nothing steamy about him in the least.

The fact this book was filled with multiple sexcapades in each chapter would have been ok if the sex read well but it was uninspiring, over done and did absolutely nothing for me.

There was no plot. There was no story. The characters had no substance. The dialogue was childish and redundant. There was no point, other than to excite the reader, which for me, failed miserably. After the first half of the book and many many dull sex scenes later, I started skipping over these parts to try and find a story. Needless to say, I found none.

I won’t be going on to book two, Rubbed Raw. I appreciate the effort it takes to write a book, submit that book to the public and have people either accept or reject it. It takes an exorbitant amount of courage and I applauded any author for trying. However, this book just wasn’t for me.
