Raising the Stakes: The Blurb
(A red-hot, contemporary, M/F/M Menage)
Play out the hand her way…or fold?
Three of a Kind, Book 2
After four years, Megan Loxley has given up waiting for her best friend, Desmond Reed, to realize she loves him. It’s time to move on. When Des introduces her to his poker buddy, Alex Truman, the instantaneous sparks that flare between them signal her life is about to change forever.
Des could kick himself. How could he have failed to notice the perfect woman was by his side all this time? Now it’s too damn late. And her innocent prodding about why he’s suddenly so distant is only making his hunger for her worse. Then she gets one step too close—and his self-restraint snaps.
Stunned, bewildered, furious, Meg can’t help but respond to the kisses for which she waited so long. God help her, she loves Des. And Alex, too. Immeasurably. Now what
It may make her the greediest woman alive, but she’s determined to win the next hand— even if she has to change the game a little. First step: state her wildly sexy proposition in a language both men will understand…and hope they’ll stick around and play by her rules.
Warning: If you’re looking for a cool game of poker, you won’t find it here. This novella is so hot the cards are still smoking. The heroine may be new to the game, but she knows exactly how to play her two kings.
What readers and reviewers are saying about Raising the Stakes:
“I freaking absolutely loved Jess’s Book Raising the Stakes. Who new playing poker with friends could lead to this. OMG the Love scenes were so damn hot I melted- literally, several times. I’m drooling right now just thinking about them. The emotions between Meg, Des and Alex are well, lets say I cried and rejoyced and cried some more and wanted to thump somebody with my cure-all cast iron frying pan. I love the emotions going on in Des’s and especially Alex’s head. I hate giving away spoilers so I canna say anything else except go buy it!!!!!!! And if you haven’tread the first book in this series Going All In, go buy it for goodness sake and treat yourself!!! (Zina)
“After reading this book I had to restrain myself from going out and throwing myself in the snow to cool down! *fans self* I loved the first book in this series but fell madly in love…or should I say lust with this book.” (JBP Reviews)
“Raising the Stakes is a captivating, scintillating story that will take you on an intense, emotional rollercoaster ride guaranteed to have you sitting on the edge of your seat while begging and pleading for more. The sex is raw, hot, powerful, intense, and emotional to the point that you can’t help but feel the love. This well-written story will definitely keep you warm on a cold winter’s night as the words flow smoothly over the page.” (Black Raven)
“A dynamic story that touches the vulnerabilities with adding a third into a relationship. I thought Jess Dee beautifully portrayed the feelings associated with something new like being with the woman you love and sharing. A delightful read.” (Emily, Sensual Reads.)
