It seemed like they had everything, but they didn’t have Jack.
Without question Spencer Hartley burns hot for his girlfriend, Rory, but his other desires are hidden down deep. He might blow things up for a living and climb mountains for kicks, but the scariest thing in his life is the truth about his sexuality.
Jack Rothman works hard and plays dirty. After long, demanding days in his family’s engineering firm, he indulges in the pleasures of silk restraints and fine wine. Lots of hot meaningless sex helps him forget that he’s suffocating, with no one to give him a reason to breathe.
When a catastrophic accident traps Spencer in a flooded subway tunnel with Jack, they need each other to survive. But something strong stirs down there in the darkness, and it’s more than their desperation to live. There’s a spark between them that’s impossible to ignore.
Rory Campbell would love to give Spencer the one thing he doesn’t have, the freedom to explore his secret desires. But how does that fit into her picture-perfect relationship? When Jack invites the couple to his sprawling Hamptons beach house, Rory realizes that she has secret desires of her own—the kind only Jack’s Dominant hand across her bare bottom can satisfy.

My Review …..
Rory loves Spencer so much, they’ve been together now for about three years. And she’s going to miss him when he goes away for a month to work!
Spencer is a little of an adrenaline junkie, his job is a stressful one, so mountain climbing allows him to destress, the other way he finds his center is being with Rory, she’s more than a match for him. She gets him, and he wants nothing more than to be with her forever, he needs just a little more money and the courage to tell her his darkest secret!
Jack is king of his hill! He doesn’t need nor require love, it’s an unnecessary emotion! All he needs is to succeed and build his fathers company into something big, always trying to get his father approval. And anyway he can usually find someone to waste a few hours with…..
Jack and Spencer work with one another (well actually Jack is his new boss) and there is something there, but neither really notice it, that is until an accident has them relying on one another. They bond over the hours they are trapped. I didn’t really get any sexual tension, but I did get a little vibe, that they could be interested in getting to know each other better.
I haven’t read this author before, but this won’t be the last book I’ll read of hers.
After being rescued Jack spends time with Spencer and Rory in their home, and he gets to witness first hand a couple very much in love. And Jack realises he wants that, but he wants it with them!
I don’t usually read established couples that bring in a third person, it’s usually a threesome that evolve together. So I did have to worry that Jack would upset the balance, he’s giving Spencer something that Rory can’t! But he’s also giving something to Rory, so I suppose it should work out. But what does Jack get out of this arrangement? He gets the love and family that he desperately needs and didn’t even knew he needed it.
With the three of them exploring their attraction to one another, there is no jealousy, no competing for one another’s time. And throw in the fact Spencer and Rory begin to obey Jack’s every command, it seems like a match made in heaven…..
The families that go with the three characters are not really very supportive of this new found relationship!
And when a misunderstanding separates Jack from his new lovers, you do have to wonder if it’s going to be the last time he ever sees them!
It’s a great story, no angst, only worry that Jack isn’t good enough for his new lovers! And the fact Spencer doesn’t think Rory will continue to love him after he tells her of his sexual orientation!
It’s beautifully written and I know there is another book with this couple in it. And I can’t wait to read it.
