Colters Woman - Maya Banks, Challenging Carter - Kate Davies


Adam, Ethan and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman to share their lives and their beds. They don't want a casual romp in the hay, they want the woman who will complete them and they're losing hope of finding her. That is until Adam finds Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. He knows shes different the minute he holds her in his arms. But before Adam gets his hopes up, he knows he has to gauge his brothers reactions. Soon its evident that shes the one. There are a few problems, however convincing her she belongs with them and keeping her safe from the man who wants her dead.

Alrighty...this is my very first erotica book! lol I have to admit it does it's job by getting you all sex crazed! ;o) But however I have to compare it to chocolate cake...DAMN GOOD and yummy BUT you truly couldn't eat it everyday.

The Colter brothers have a family tradition of sharing a wife. They didn't think they ever find the right gal but when Adam goes out one night and finds Holly laid in the snow barely breathing he felt a reaction that he knew she was the one. Getting used to pleasing three men wasn't something Holly was used to but looking in the faces of these men, she knew she was safe and finally at a place she could call home. That is until her husband comes looking for her with murder in his eye!

This book is FILLED with all sorts of sexual experiences. I loved all the brothers and their different personalities...Hooly however KINDA got on my nerves! lol But above all I did actually kinda like it. It was different and I was worried that it being an Erotica it wouldn't have a story line. It had one...one that kinda took back seat until the end but it was there none the less! lol I'd recommend this book if your in a sex slump in your books! ;o) Go get it! You won't be as appalled as you might think!


When the stakes are high, she's ready to shed more than her inhibitions-but will the man of her dreams rise to the challenge? Dani's been in love with Carter forever. But she's nothing like the women he dates-glamorous, exciting, spotlight-ready. Instead, she's stuck in the "best friend" role and can't seem to find a way out of it. Until a scheduling mix-up finds her enrolled in a strip aerobics class. Now this buttoned-down wallflower is finding her wicked side-and liking it! What in the world happened to Carter-s best bud? She's gone from sweet to sexy in ten seconds flat-and Carter's lucky enough to be around for the ride of a lifetime. But he knows from past experience that relationships don't last. He's got to get things back on track before the most important friendship in his life is damaged forever. Problem is, Dani has no intention of going back to being "just friends". It's about time someone challenged Carter's assumptions about love and friendship-and Dani's just the woman to do it!

How adorable is this book?!? Dani went to college with Carter and has always had a crush on him! Carter signs Dani up for a workout contest at their work and soon they find themselves spending more and more time together. Carter walks in on Dani doing her workout routine one night and notices there is NOTHING with steps or weights...it actually involves her taking clothes OFF! ;o) Needless to say Dani and Carter find themselves in an interesting position. Is a few nights of how sex worth risking a lifetime of friendship?

Besides feeling rushed with this book I actually thought it was cute...short but cute! The friendship between Carter and Dani is classic. You've seen stories like this before (or at least I know I have) and its very predictable HOWEVER it was still an amusing read that took only a few hours! So if its a Sunday and your looking for a cute quick read pick this one up! You won't regret it! :o)

I give BOTH these books a total of...

Nothing earth shattering here but good quick reads! :o)

I have read just a handful, and some I did like. Depends on my mood!!! :) How do you like reading digitally?? Part of me wants to convert, but part of me cries inside at the thought of contributing to the demise of a good brick and mortar book store. Do you enjoy it??

Hey Monroe --

This ranks up there will my all time favoruite books.

this was the book that made Banks a voice for me - as I never got into her other book.. however these three brothers, their personalities, their issues and more over their lusty passion drew me like a moth to a flame..

The follow up book Colters Wife - is just as fullfilling- it closes so many questions that was left unanswered in Colters Woman...

Thanks for reading this and letting go dig it out of my hard drive...

I'm glad you liked both of these Monroe. Colters' Woman is so naughty and it introduced me to Maya Banks, who I really enjoy still to this day. :P

Challenging Carter was so cute, I love it. :P My favorite theme.
