Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son. If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rockstars, er, rock concerts. Yeah, that's it. She is the National Bestselling Author of The Loving on the Edge series from Berkley Heat.

5 huge stars for the latest book in the Loving On The Edge series which can be read as a complete stand alone and does have a HEA. I read this series a while back and loved it yet for some odd reason I stopped reading it, but after this newest release I went back and caught up on the books I missed. Please be advised this book is not for the faint of heart or narrow-minded since it describes in the steamiest / sexiest way imaginable a full on MMF ménage relationship. This includes but is not in any way limited to MM sex.
Cora Benning is a hacker girl extraordinaire but seeing how her mother is the police captain in Dallas she uses her powers for good. Cora has always lived a very sheltered life with a over-protective mother who drilled into her all the evils that lurk in society. While naïve about some things Cora is far from a prude and spends most of her free time in an on-line game called Hayven.
Hayven caters to a specific clientele that prefers to either watch or participate in BDSM. Cora has created a profile in the game that is one of the most popular yet her avatar looks nothing like her in real life. This is Cora's escape from her everyday work grind and she uses it to unwind until something happens that puts her and others that play the game in danger.
Ren Moraya is part owner of FoxRen Media and the creator/mastermind behind Hayven. He has spent the last few years doing anything and everything to get his best friend out of jail for a crime he didn't commit and now that he is out Ren is hoping to convince him to live again.
Ren is also a member of The Ranch - a elite, private, BDSM club in Dallas. While Ren - who is openly bi-sexual - has only ever been a dominant while performing scenes there - didn't start out that way. As a teen Ren spent a year of his life being a submissive to a man that only ever abused and hurt him and he vowed he would never be put in that position again.
Hayes Fox is the business genius behind FoxRen Media and Ren's best friend. Prior to his arrest Fox and Ren would indulge in all sorts of debauchery at home and The Ranch but they never blurred the lines of their friendship until now. Hayes is also a dominant yet when he was arrested and falsely accused of a crime he had to suppress any and all BDSM. Now the only place Hayes can "play" is in the on-line game called Hayven under a false name and profile.
This book is easily in my top three of best sex scenes ever written. The dynamics between the three of them had you cheering for their HEA. Hopefully we get to see more from them down the road :)
She shifted backward, bumping into her car. “Please don’t do that.”
He brows dipped. “Don’t what?”
“Try to make me feel better. Give me a boost or whatever. Because, seriously, I don’t need your pity.”
He laughed. This sharp bark of a thing that echoed through the empty parking lot. “Pity? Are you kidding?”
Her teeth clamped together, anger rising. “You—”
But he moved so fast it made the rest snag in her throat. Both of his hands landed on the car behind her, caging her in and bringing his face close to hers. “Ready for completely and wholeheartedly inappropriate?”
He wasn’t touching her anywhere but he may as well have pressed his entire body against her for the way her blood went hot. She couldn’t speak. Couldn’t move. All she could see were those dark eyes and inhale the scent of him, spicy food and man.
“I reeled myself in tonight. I asked you to dinner for selfish reasons. But once we were there and got to talking, I had a crisis of conscience. You’re working with me. You’ve been through hell this week. You didn’t need me complicating that. I forced myself to play by the rules. I made myself be good.” He leaned close to her ear, his breath coasting along her neck. “But don’t think for one second that I didn’t want to talk you into my bed tonight, that I didn’t want to show you that side of myself you saw in the hallway, and that I haven’t been thinking exactly how good it would feel to have you beneath me.”
All ability to breathe ceased inside her, her body going still as stone and melty as lava.
“So you can accuse me of a lot of things, Cora. Crossing lines. Being selfish. Acting inappropriately. Because I’m doing all of those things right now. But one thing you can’t accuse me of is pity.” He pushed off the car, freeing her from the invisible hold, and took a step back. “I’ll see you on Monday. And if you decide not to show up anymore because of this, I’ll make sure you’re paid through the next two weeks.”
He turned and strode toward his car, leaving her standing there trembling and breathing hard and... way too turned on.
She wet her lips, a surge of bravery welling in her. “You never told me your breaking-the-law story.”
The words rang through the distance between them, and she thought he might keep walking, but he stopped and turned around. “We’ll need to schedule a seven-course meal to get through all of that.”
“That long of a list, huh?”
His mouth kicked up at the corner. All bad boy and charm. “Yep, you game?”
She swallowed past the dryness in her throat, knowing what he was asking was about way more than a dinner. She was so damn far off the reservation. “I might be...”
His gaze heated, slid over her with open appreciation. “It’s a date, then. Goodnight, hallway girl.”
