Book Description:

Brenda has been through enough relationship drama. After her husband was caught cheating at their wedding, she decides it's time to start over. Brenda leaves her fast-paced city life behind to start over on a ranch in east Texas.

Part of her fresh start comes in the form of ranch hand Billy Joe Watkins. Brenda's taken with his gentlemanly, handsome ways. When she meets his good friend and fellow ranch hand, Salvador Rivas, the next day, sparks fly with his overly seductive nature.

Both admit to being ladies men, but claim their attraction and feelings for Brenda are sincere. They say they will do whatever it takes to prove to her they're in it for the long haul. Can Billy and Sal be trusted? More importantly, can Brenda learn to love again so quickly and easily?

Book Review:

Brenda was willing to put up with a lot concerning her fiancé turned husband but this was the last straw. Did he really think she would put up with his cheating on her--on her wedding day? Not only no, but a big hell no! Just like that her world has gone under. Concerned about Brenda, her best friend, Jasmine and her husbands Gabe and Ted treat her to a vacation to get away from the painful drama of her life.

However, eventually Brenda decides to come back home. She’s not going to let Kerry ruin the rest of life and happiness. Brenda just didn’t count on meeting the first two men that could make her a very happy woman.

The very sexy Brenda blows Billy away. He can’t help but stare at Brenda from head to toes. She’s is one sexy lady that he can’t wait to get to know better. Billy unwillingly lets out his friend’s name of Sal, his only competition.

Sal enjoys what he sees in Brenda. He wants her just as much as Billy does. Even though both men don’t want to rush things with Brenda, they can’t help but be impatient about her decision.

Brenda is overwhelmed about her desire for both men. She doesn’t want to hurt either one of them but Brenda is scared of getting her heartbroken.

Listen up everyone, Ms. Laura Ashton is back. Yes, you heard right, Ms. Laura is back to charm fans and new readers with the newest addition to her Sensual Awakenings series title called Sharing Brenda.

Ms. Laura gives readers a glimpse of what’s going with the previous main characters of her first title, Jasmine and her husbands, Gabe and Ted. Now the main heroine of this story is Brenda Evans with Billy Joe Watkins and Salvador “Sal” Rivas.

Billy and Sal both want Brenda but can they really share her? Brenda is willing to try especially since she can’t make a choice about these men.

Slowly Brenda opens her heart more and more with Sal and Billy. Brenda knows she wants them both but can the three of them really make it work? Would it be worth it?

And what do you know just when things are getting down right sexy and dirty between these three characters, Brenda’s asshole of a husband returns to get back ‘his’ woman.

What will Brenda do now?

I could tell you, but then someone would definitely hurt me for seriously ruining the ending for him or her.

Sharing Brenda is just the icing on the cake. You can never get enough of it. I am fascinated about the dynamics on Brenda relationship with her men, Sal and Billy.

I really enjoyed reading Brenda’s turn at being the main heroine this time around. It was great of Ms. Laura to include a mini background on her characters of Jasmine, Ted and Gabe. In addition, who couldn’t love Camilla, she’s just about the greatest lady ever!

I can’t wait to see just what Ms. Laura will cook up next.

I give Sharing Brenda a 5-Star rating.

About the author:

Having my book published is a dream come true. My first book, Jasmine's Urban Cowboys is the first of a series entitled Sensual Awakenings. I write about ménages because, although I've not been fortunate to participate in one (one can dream, can't they?), nothing seems sexier or stimulates my imagination more than my heroine enjoying two or more hunky partners of the opposite sex. Grrrrrrrrr!

I spend winters in Sin City and summers in Northern Arizona. Don't be surprised if I use those places as settings for my upcoming books. I lived near Dallas a few years ago, so that's why I used it as the setting for my Sensual Awakening series.

Check out the story that began it all.
