After Dark Review of Hope Springs by Jayne Rylon & Mari Carr

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Read for: Mount TBR Digital, After Dark, Series Challenge
Synopsis: "What will grow from the seeds of desire?

Compass Girls, Book 2

Hope Compton never considered her parents’ unconventional relationship a dangerous thing. Until, after a few too many drinks in a crowded bar, she admits her desire for a ménage to her college boyfriend—and uninvited guests try to turn her fantasy into a nightmare.

When Wyatt catches some thugs harassing the pretty daughter of his bosses, he doesn’t hesitate to call on his partner Clayton to kick some asses. But then he realizes what a temptation the sweet, sheltered Hope presents. Especially her naughty wish to unleash her inner vixen—with both of them.

Hope has no doubt her playmates want to fulfill her every desire, but something’s holding them back. She has an idea what those somethings are. With luck, and a little help from her Compass cousins to hold her fathers off, she’ll find what she needs in the shadows of the past—and convince them she’s found two men of her own who are worthy of her love.

Warning: Compass books bring love in every direction and every season. But not all of life’s moments are filled with joy. Take the good with the bad, and the steamy."

My Review: After finally devouring the first book in this series, I couldn't help but jump immediately into this book too. This one felt a little choppy at times, like there were chunks of important relationship building missing and it seemed to dive more into the bedroom scenes instead of developing the series long storyline. Not that I am complaining all that much because the steam was almost too hot to handle in this book. I still very much so enjoyed this book an the characters and can't wait to continue the series.
My Rating: When I started this series I didn't realize that there were two different authors working on it, but it became obvious.  Mari Carr seems a little more focused on developing characters and storyline while Jayne Rylon is more focused on the amount of steam she can cram in the book. With that said this was a steamy book but an enjoyable book to read, I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
