Melody Snow Monroe - Diamonds and Spurs
4 of  5 Stars


 Diamonds and Spurs
is a very sexy - suspensy Erotic Cowboy ménage Romance (m/f/m).


Denver socialite Mandy Duncan is on the run from her ex-husband. She knows about his Ponzi scheme, and only she stands between him and jail. He’s determined to stop her from ever talking.

Mandy escapes to Samantha Callen’s ranch in Intrigue, Wyoming, and hires on as a wilderness guide. Distrustful of men, Mandy doesn’t want to be attracted to Samantha’s cousin, financial guru Vince Callen, or to his sophisticated lawyer roommate, Cameron Longworth, but she is.

Then Cameron and Vince’s ex-fiancée decides she wants them back. When Cameron tells her he’s found someone new, she decides Mandy needs to go.

When Mandy is shot, Cameron and Vince won’t let her out of their sight, and their passion explodes. Then she’s kidnapped. Frantic, Cameron and Vince risk it all to save her. How can they convince her to trust her heart again and want a loving ménage relationship?


 My Review:

Amanda ('Mandy') needs to get the hell out of Denver asap - after finding out her that her husband ran a Ponzi scheme with his Spa investors. And also because he's an unloving idiot, who even hit her once!
She's leaving everything behind. Her husband's money, mani/pedis, brasilian wax session, tennis lessons, her iphone and most important her beloved horse.

As soon as her divorce is finalized she wants to disappear across the border to Wyoming.

If she divorced him, only she stood between him and jail.

"What are you going to do?" asks her best friend Candy.

"After I divorce him on Monday, I plan to disappear."

She drives into Wyoming where she found a job in a town called Intrigue at Samantha Callen Waton's Ranch. A Ranch that caters especially to women.
She needs to start working as a stable hand if she wants to work her way up to wilderness guide. 

At the end of her first week she meets hot cowboy Vince Callen.
He's immediately attracted to her and she is too - but she's been hurt too bad to start dating again so soon - at least that's what she tells herself.
After the two of them took the horses out for a little race - including a hot kiss in the rain - Mandy drives Vince home, where she meets his extremely sexy roommate Cam Longworth.
(From Vince and from her two bunkmates she knows that in Intrigue lots of women are married to two men.
A fact that doesn't scare her off as much as it should.)

That's where it all starts. I don't want to write too much - it's not a really long book - I would just spoil too much for you ☺

Let's just say there will be romance - SEX - the one-on-one kind and of course the three-some kind.
There will be bad people trying to hurt and even kill Mandy - one of whom is Cam's ex-fiancée Sharon.
There will be sexy cowboys at a rodeo.
There will be a wilderness ride with campfires and smores.
Did I mention Sex?? LOTS of outdoor SEX ☺
And we will meet a few of the characters from the earlier books in the series.

My opinion:

I really liked the book - I must admit I had never heard of Melody Snow Monroe before - I just found book her by accident because I was browsing books by Siren publishing. 

I really love Ménage romances - but I have to say that there wasn't as much of it in this book as I would've liked.
When I see two guys and a girl on a cover - I want those 3 people to do things with eachother ☻ - there was too much one-on-one sex in this book. (ok, I know there is no such thing as too much sex!)
But it wasn't that bad because there was enough other stuff going on - like the suspense part.
And that's where we come to the part I didn't like - I can't say too much because it would spoil the whole story - but the End was way too predictable. Not the HEA-part - but the part with the FBI guy!

Another thing I didn't like was that there were so many mistakes in the book - too late for the printed version - but please - whoever's in charge of it - go over the ebook again and correct them!!!

All in all it was a very sexy Cowboy Suspense Romance and I really liked it. Maybe a hundred more pages would've made the whole thing perfect.

But at least the 3 get their HEA - with maybe a baby-cowboy on the way soon ☺
