One night to indulge their wildest desires…

Adam Lancaster has been in love with Rob McKeith—and attracted to Rob’s wife, Shayla—for years, but he fears their friendship would be over if they knew the truth. So he’s thrilled when his secret fantasy becomes reality and the couple offers him a very special gift: a sensual Christmas Eve in their bedroom…


Usually, I tend to avoid erotica like the Bubanic Plague, but this
time, I made an exception and I'm really glad I did! I often forget
erotica can have a story-line (silly me!) and The Gift of Shayla
reinforces this. So much so, that as I read, I wanted to know more
about the characters. What were they like in the past? How did Adam
hide his feeling for so long? How did Rob meet Shayla? What happens
afterward? Do all three work things out?

The story is very sensual and explores a little bdsm (as well as m/m). 
The sex scene isn't just filled with mindless sex, but with dialogue 
that makes you almost feel sorry for the situation they've put 
themselves in. That is, until you keep reading- then you're really 
glad they did.

I only have one problem, which really isn't a problem at all, and that
is...I wish it were longer!
