Abby, Blair and Callie – three best friends all in their thirties – are all dissatisfied with their sex lives, or lack thereof in some cases. Blair comes up with a bet, and as in the past when they were in school together, none of them can resist the challenge. The bet is that each of them has to have a wild weekend of sex. The catch is the other two get to pick the man.


Wild Abby is chosen to go first and after having told her friends that two men she works with expressed an interest to see her outside the office, her fate was sealed. Never having had a satisfying sexual relationship with her now ex-husband, Abby doesn’t know how she’s supposed to satisfy one man, let alone two.


Mike and Seth are both attracted to Abby and since neither one wants to bow out, they are asking Abby to choose if she wants just one of them, or both. They spend an unbelievable night together and Abby is torn over the decision she must then make.


Wicked Blair wishes she never came up with the idea for the bet when she finds out her friends have chosen Rand McKay as her weekend lover. She’s known Rand almost her entire life and has sworn never to get involved with him. Blair’s father was very domineering over her mother, and she has sworn never to let a man have control over her. And she knows for sure that Rand is the type who likes to be in charge.


Rand has always wanted Blair and now he has his chance. He just has to teach her that submitting in the bedroom doesn’t mean she has to give up her control. But if she can learn to trust him he can take her places she’s only ever imagined about.


Wanton Callie, the final story in the book Abby and Blair choose Jack Fellows as Callie’s weekend dare. He is a customer who visits Callie’s coffee shop every day, but it’s obvious he’s not really there for the coffee. Callie is proud of the life she’s made for herself since the death of her husband. But she’s also very lonely. She meets Jack at an event she attends with her friends, and all too soon it becomes very clear they have at least one thing in common.


When they stumble across a couple having sex, Jack expects Callie to be shocked and uncomfortable. Instead he finds himself amazed at just how much it turns her on. As they watch the other couple he wonders if she also likes to be watched.


Abby, Blair and Callie are strong in their own rights, but learn that having the right man by their side makes them complete. While graphic, the sex scenes are also sensual and loving. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t incredibly jealous of all three of these lucky, lucky ladies.
