Review:  Always the Quiet Ones by Amy Valenti

One man—two women. Two Dominants—one submissive. Three hearts about to collide…

Lee rubs me up the wrong way, but he’s sexier than sin. He and our mutual friend Nicola have been pretending they don’t want each other the entire time I’ve known them, but every time I drool over Nicola, Lee gets all territorial. I’m guessing he’s just as much of a Dom as she is a submissive.

As far as I can see, there’s only one solution to this problem—we share Nic. Just for one night of amazing BDSM bliss, to make them realize they belong together. Then I can back off and leave them to their happily-ever-after before Lee tries to make me kneel before him too. I don’t submit to anybody.

Okay, so I don’t get much out of this deal in the long run, but that’s okay. I’m not looking for a permanent relationship anyway, especially not with two people. Even if one of them is the sweetest bisexual sub I’ve ever met and the other makes me want to fight him for the top spot and then ride him all night long…

Not your typical menage erotica, ALWAYS THE QUIET ONES is a sweet, erotic romance novella that starts off with a bang and doesn’t let up until the last page. The characters are all friends – I liked that they had such great chemistry as such, and that they were able to carry that into the bedroom.

Lee is secretly in love with Nicola, and both of them are friends with Dana, the self-professed Queen of Casual Sex. Dana is tired of watching the two dance around each other, so she arranges for all three of them to have one night together. At first, Nic doesn’t want her friends to know that she’s a submissive, and Lee’s repressed his Dom ways since college. But Dana (who herself is a Dom) brings it out from the both of them, and the rest is a fun, wild ride laced with trust, fantasy, and desire.

The characters fully trust one another and aren’t afraid to show it to each other, lending an air of sweetness to this incredibly hot novella. The only issue? It was too short. I felt as though Lee and Nicola get their happily-ever-after, and Dana is more than content to be a part of that in the bedroom; it was a satisfying read. Fun, flirty, hot, smexy…this novella packs quite a punch in only 49 pages. It’s a fantastic lunchtime read. Highly recommended!
