Review: Stranded & Seduced by Shelley Munro

Book Description
House of the Cat #2.75 - Note: this book is a stand alone story.

Resistance is futile.

Cimmaron Zhaan refuses to follow the traditional path of a Dlog woman. Instead she dreams of traveling through space and flying spaceships for the Coalition. Years of hard work bring her goal within grasp, until her superior seeks sexual favors and leaves her stranded on the isolated planet of Marchant.

Enter sexy club manager Tamaki Grierson. Cimmaron's not looking for a mate, but there's no denying that sparks fly between them. Desperate to leave Marchant, all she wants is to keep her head down and work--no romance for her.

But there's something strange about the club and curiosity leads Cimmaron into trouble. Before she knows it, she's naked with Tamaki and his best friend. Kisses. Heated embraces and torrid sex. Their loving is breathtaking. Her resistance is at low ebb, her heart and mind battling her overwhelming attraction for Tamaki. If she isn't careful, her Dlog hormones will tie her to him for life and her struggle to fly spaceships will be for naught.

Warning: This sexy romance contains one ménage a trois scene and was previously published.

My Review: 
Cimmaron is a space ship pilot and that wouldn't be strange except she's a Dlog female and most people don't expect a Dlog female to be doing this type of thing. When she won't accept the sexual advances of someone on the ship she's on, he strands her on a planet where she has to take a job in order to survive. 

All Cimmaron wants to do is get a job and save enough money to clear her name and get on with her life. But when her new boss makes her feel things she'd rather not feel, her life is in for a quick turn. 

Tamaki finds himself hiring a new bartender and while he finds her sexually attractive and alluring, as the club manager he can't risk his job by getting involved in anyway but professionally with her. Control is taken out of their hands when Cimmaron 's curiosity gets the better of her and she finds herself in a part of the club she was told to stay away from. 

The sexual tension between Tamaki and Cimmaron is so thick you could cut it with a knife but I was still shocked when the threesome happened. There's a reason people are acting strange and why Tamaki and his best friend need to be careful about what room they enter together. Some of the dialogue between Rico and Tamaki made me laugh out loud because you could tell it was so out of character for them. When we find out the reason that strange things are happening at the club it all starts to make more sense. 

This is a stand alone book so even if you haven't read the previous books in this series, you can read this one with no problem. 

I really like hot sex scenes as well as a little humor in my romance and this book had both.

I give this book 5 stars.
