Coming Clean by Inez Kelley

Coming Clean by Inez Kelley
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Coming clean never felt so good…

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?

Coming Clean by Inez Kelley is my favorite book in the Dirty Laundry series from Carina Press.  This story is not just about a husband wanting to fulfill his wife’s fantasies, it’s about crossing lines that once crossed, you can’t go back.  It’s about friendship, love and a much deeper connection.

Grant and Vivi are so much in love that they are secure in their relationship and not afraid to share their deepest desires.  Grant has been all for fulfilling Vivi’s fantasies until she asks for the ultimate fantasy, a ménage’ with Cade.  He is immediately turned on by the idea of seeing Vivi and Cade together but doesn’t know if he can join in and enjoy Cade too.  He has housed a secret desire for Cade since they were teenagers but he is straight and is confused by these feelings he is having.

Cade and Vivi used to be dancing partners and they have always felt a connection when they danced.  They have a special bond just like Cade and Grant but Cade would never cross those boundaries.  He is stunned but elated when Cade brings up the subject with him.  He desires what Grant and Vivi have; he loves them both and doesn’t want to do anything that could cause problems with their friendship.

When Grant takes the final step, Cade is gentle and loving with him.  He wants to show Grant that what they have is just as special as what he and Vivi have.  There is such tenderness and love in the scenes that you realize that this relationship goes much deeper than sex.  When Vivi joins in, she has her doubts when she sees Grant and Cade together.  She is insecure and afraid that Grant doesn’t need her anymore, until she realizes that they both need her as much as they need each other.

This is a story about discovering not only yourself, but each other.  The three of them have taken their friendship to the most intimate level. They realize that Cade is just as important to their relationship as each other.  Inez Kelley has done a wonderful job of showing that sex can be so much more.  Be warned that there are m/m/f scenes in this story but they are beautifully written and are very HOT!!!  Overall I give Coming Clean 4 Flaming Hearts.

  1. I am so glad you liked COMING CLEAN and that you understood the message beneath it. Sex is wonderful but love is deeper than just bodies. Thank you for the lovely review and rating!

  2. Awesome Heather!! I loved this book too. I knew it was m/m/f coming into the story, so I expected heat and hotness, but the sensual and heavy love woven in just took me by complete surprise! And it was a pleasant surprise!

  3. Yeah, I loved this book. The love between the 3 of them was something so deep and touching. It’s been one of my favorite Carina Press books yet, along with Liberty Star and Parker’s Price.
