She’s the fantasy they’ve always wanted to share…
Best friends Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos share almost everything—a history in the Navy, their sailboat building and restoration business, and the desire to dominate a woman together, which they do at Baltimore’s exclusive club, Blasphemy. Now if they could find someone who wants to play for keeps…
All Hartley Farren has in the world is the charter sailing business she inherited from her beloved father. So when a storm damages her boat, she throws herself on the mercy of business acquaintances to do the repairs—stat. She never expected to find herself desiring the sexy, hard-bodied builders, but being around Jonathan and Cruz reminds Hartley of how much she longs for connection. If only she could decide which man she wants to pursue more…
As their attraction flashes hot, Jonathan and Cruz determine to have Hartley for their own. But the men’s erotic world is new and overwhelming, and Hartley’s unsure if she could really submit to being both of theirs to take…forever.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…
12 Masters. 12 Desires. 12 Fantasies Come to Life.
Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…
I’d given up on ever receiving the arc for Theirs to Take, so I panicked a little when it finally showed up on my Kindle app 4 days before my review was due to post for this scheduled blitz. With plans for the weekend already in place, my first thought was “I hope it’s short” and my second was “This better be worth it”. I dropped everything and dove right in, and I’m happy to report that yes, it was a quick, easy read and it was definitely worth the aggravation.
Each book in the Blasphemy series has centered around one of the masters of the Blasphemy BDSM Club. Luckily with Theirs To Take we get a sexy two for one story. Jonathan and Cruz are best friends who do everything together and dream of finding a woman who’s willing to not only be with both of them but also be their submissive.
A hurricane damaged Hartley’s charter boat and she’s got to get it repaired within a short timeframe in order to keep her company afloat. Thankfully Jonathan and Cruz own a custom boat building business and even though they have just taken on a new build, they are willing to see if they can help her out.
Sparks fly immediately but the three of them have several issues to work out. Emotion and chemistry run hot between all three of them, and these new feelings need to be worked out if they are to have any hope of a permanent threesome. Add in that Hartley doesn’t know a thing about the BDSM lifestyle and this may be a recipe for disaster.
I liked all three main characters. MMF romances can sometimes miss with the emotional connection but here you can feel it. It helped that they didn’t immediately fall into bed but actually formed a friendship first. Of course, the sexual chemistry is off the charts, especially when Cruz and Jonathan start exploring their feelings toward each other too. I never felt like this was a couple +1 although that was definitely a worry amongst the three of them.
Like the books before it, this dealt with some tough issues. It wasn’t quite as heavy as the first two books, but I think the short length of the book and the fact there were three MC’s made it harder to get as deep into some of the issues as I would have liked. Still, I enjoyed my time spent with the three of them. This was short, quick, hot, and so worth the aggravation of a short deadline.

Now, read in for a taste of Theirs to Take…
Standing over the two people who had become his whole life over the past four weeks, Jonathan stroked his cock, more aroused than he’d ever been before. Because this time was laden with emotion. Emotion that they’d all acknowledged, at least to some extent.
“You two look so hot I could get myself off to just the sight of you laying like that. Shoot my load all over you while you fuck each other in front of me.” He shook his head. “Mmm. Another time.” He got to his knees, and then he paused. “Where are you, Hartley? What color?”
She forced her gaze to his and gave him a smile. “Green, Sir.”
Damn, she was doing so good, proving once again how right she was for them. “Making me so proud of you. You’re doing great, you hear me?”
“Thank you, Sir,” she whispered, her expression going soft at the praise.
Her sweetness made Jonathan need her even more. “It’s time for the three of us to come together, all at once. Just like this.”
“Fuck, Jay, you need to get in her,” Cruz said, his hands moving over her breasts, her stomach, and reaching down to where Jonathan was lining his cock up at her pussy.
“Yes,” Jonathan said, entering her and finding her tighter than ever before. But she was so wet that her slickness eased the way.
“Oh, my God!” she cried. “Ohmigod, ohmigod.”
Jonathan released a harsh breath. “Where are you, darlin’?”
“Green. I’m green. It’s so good but it’s so much,” she babbled.
“Take us, baby. Take both of us,” Cruz rasped. “Do you feel that? Jonathan rubbing against me through you?”
Hartley’s writhed. “Yes, I feel it. I feel everything.” She reached a hand down to her clit.
Jonathan pushed her touch away. “Your orgasms are ours to give tonight.” He grinned at her whimper, and then he was the one spilling a harsh groan of need, because he bottomed out inside her. She’d taken them all—of course, she’d really done that days ago when she’d taken their hearts. A realization that put words on the tip of his tongue. Words he hadn’t yet said. But just then, Jonathan could only manage to say one thing. “Hartley,” he rasped.
“Move, please. I need to feel you move in me,” she pleaded.
“God, she begs so pretty, Jonathan. Give her what she needs,” Cruz said.
