Checking It Twice by Jodi Redford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First off, this book is a sequel to The Naughty List which I did not realize until I started reading. It is not necessary to read the first book to enjoy Checking it Twice, but it was so much fun I have already ordered the first one.
Jana and Kevin have know each other for five years and have been in love/lust for most of that time. Due to emotional issues in Kevin’s past, he has resisted his feelings for her although Jana has done her best to seduce him. He knows that he is incapable of giving Jana what she needs in a relationship. Years ago, he even lost his best friend due to his problems.
And now, he is leaving town . . . for good.
Jana loves Kevin and cannot understand why he won’t give them a chance. She is also worried about her feelings for Nick. Although they have never met, they have carried on a long distance flirtation through phone and email. Can she really be in love with two men?
So, guess who comes to town and just happens to be Kevin’s long-lost best friend?
Nick has regretted the end of his friendship with Kevin for years. Now that he has found him, he is not going to lose him again. He has also realized his feelings for Jana have gone beyond a flirtation and it is time for them to meet face-to-face. What he did not realize is that Jana is in love with another man. Kevin.
Nick has known Kevin since they shared a room in college and that is not all they shared. Kevin’s voyeurism kink quite often let to M/F/M threesomes. Kevin’s background has made him ashamed of his sexual preferences. He is afraid to get close to anyone because he “knows” they will leave him when they find out what he is really like. But Nick knows that there is no reason Jana should have decide which man she really loves. She can have Kevin and Nick too.
Jana is not at all adverse to a relationship with both men. After all, her brother is in such a relationship already. –Remember book one, The Naughty List?– And Jana is not shy about going after what she wants.
I loved this book. It was a light, fun read, but there was also emotional depth. Kevin, Nick, and Jana are all wonderful characters. There were times I wanted to tell Kevin to get over himself, but that is only because I wanted everyone to be happy.
Read this book! Especially if you like M/F/M menages, light bondage, and some really hot shower scenes.
