Book Description:


Natalie Fritz didn't need a night of sexual adventure as payment for setting her friend up, but she wouldn't turn it down either. Determined to make sure she gets exactly what she wants, she makes a call to Madame Eve and requests not one, but two dates for the evening. What she doesn't expect is for those men to be players on her friend's hockey team.

Ian and Todd find that sharing women provides all parties with more pleasure. Finding someone who buys into their theory is a little harder. So they turn to Madame Eve's 1 Night Stand service to find them a partner. When they meet Natalie, they discover a gorgeous woman who turns them on physically and intellectually. 

Everyone knows that relationships are meant to be between two people, but what happens when it takes three to make the night worthwhile? Can they take a leap of faith or will their time be limited to one night?


Book Excerpt:


"I've spent enough time around hockey players to know that they aren't the kind of guys that I want to waste my time with." She stared the two of them down, her eyes fixed and unyielding.

"And how is it that you've spent so much time around us that you know how all of us behave?" He knew some of his teammates could be real assholes, but he hated to think that their reputation could ruin this night for Todd and him. Especially after he'd spent most of practice sporting a hard on from fantasizing about the evening. They weren't allowed to ruin this for him.

"Scott's your friend that you set up with this service, right?" She started pacing.

Todd and Ian both nodded.

"Well, TJ is my best friend that I set up." She stopped and turned toward them.

For once, he actually felt speechless. That explained why she looked familiar to him. Now that he could place her, he remembered seeing her hanging around the rink after practice and before games. His brain sifted through the new information while Todd picked up the conversation.

"Look, I get it. You've met a few players who were complete jerks." She snorted and covered her mouth. Tempted to respond to her display, he bit the inside of his cheek and let his friend continue talking. "You asked for a certain experience tonight though. If we leave, you aren't going to get that. Who knows when you'll be able to find a couple of other guys willing to provide it."


My Book Review:

Can a one night stand with two hunky hockey players satisfy one woman's deepest fantasy?

Attorney Natalie Fritz has been set up on a date by her best friend TJ, using Madam Eve's 1 Night Stand dating service. This is TJ's payback for Natalie signing her up with the same service, which had turned out well for her. Natalie figures since the service was successful for TJ, she would give it a shot too, but changes the date request from one man to two men to fulfill a long held fantasy.

Professional hockey players and teammates Ian Zelenewich and Todd Korbel like to engage in threesomes where they can team up to pleasure a lady, while also enjoy watching the other in the act. TJ's boyfriend Scott had told them about Madam Eve's services, so they signed up to give it a try, but they want to keep their identities a secret so it doesn't hurt their reputations or their hockey team, The Montreal Magic.

When Natalie, Ian and Todd meet up at a Montreal hotel, all of their requirements for an ideal date are met and a sizzling chemistry is in the air. Can a one night stand fulfill Natalie's fantasy and will it be enough, or can two hot hockey players convince her to go into overtime and play some more?

Power Play is a sassy little erotic novella that is a quick enjoyable read. Written in the third person narrative, author Emily Cale weaves a passionately sexy tale about a one night stand between a threesome (one woman / two men) that will leave the reader wanting more. I really enjoyed the author's style of writing, she gradually builds the story from Natalie's awkward meeting with the guys in the hotel room, to Ian and Todd easing Natalie's hesitation and inhibitions enough to enjoy a night which would include an intensely steamy threesome. With three fun characters; quirky dialogue and enticingly exciting sexual interactions; Power Play is one heck of a juicy and sensual story that will satisfy your imagination!

Power Play is the second book in the Hat Trick Trilogy, but can be read as a stand alone story.


RATING: 4 STARS ****


*Note: I would normally host a virtual book tour event with erotica on the sister book review blog site, Jersey Girl Sizzling Book Reviews, but mistakenly scheduled it for this blog site. But no harm done, every once in a while everyone needs a little spice added to their life! *wink, wink*
