Coming Clean by Inez Kelley

Grant and Vivi Michaelson share everything in their marriage: love, commitment—and their wildest sexual desires. But their relationship is tested when Vivi admits she wants a threesome with Grant’s old friend Cade, proposing their annual trip to the lake as the perfect opportunity to fulfill her fantasy.

All three of them are aroused by the idea. Vivi and Cade have long felt a smoldering attraction to each other…and Grant and Cade have hidden an illicit desire for decades. Going through with the ménage will test their boundaries, reveal old secrets…and maybe tear them apart. After all, there might be room for Cade in bed, but is there room for a third in their marriage?
**I requested this title for review from NetGalley**

I've got to say that this is an erotica that definitely lives up to its hype. Over the past few weeks various book bloggers have been reviewing this title and giving it high marks across the board and I just couldn't understand it! I like a good menage erotica as much as the next person, but something about the title description just didn't do it for me. Luckily I decided to take the plunge because damn is this good!

Kelley does the incredibly job of combining erotica and romance very well. The story doesn't sustain itself just on the feelings between Grant and Vivi, the attraction between all of them is very moving and realistic. Because I think that's what can derail a menage the quickest, unrealistic relationship development. Yes it started out as a fantasy, but Vivi and Grant have feelings for Cade and they don't whatever 'benefits' they bring in to interrupt that. So what we get is a very well written evolution of a relationship, where it's not just one woman and two men, but three people together who are physically attracted and emotionally attached to everyone. 

The fact that it's really spicy while still maintaining that terrific emotional connection just puts it over the top in my opinion. I highly recommend it!
