Caution, this is a M/M Romance, M/M/F Romance, and BDSM
Three lovers really click in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Call on Me.
Cora has an amazing sex life. She’s beautiful, daring, and the most popular submissive in Hayven. Too bad none of it’s real…
IT specialist Cora Benning has figured out the key to her formerly disastrous love life—make it virtual. In the online world of Hayven, she’s free of her geek girl image and can indulge her most private fantasies with a sexy, mysterious master without anyone in her life discovering her secrets. Until her information is hacked and she finds herself working to fix the breach under two very powerful men—one who seems all too familiar…
Best friends and business partners Ren Muroya and Hayes Fox were once revered dominants. Then Hayes was wrongfully sent to prison and everything changed. Ren wants to get back to who they were. Hayes can’t risk it. But when they discover the new IT specialist is their online fascination, and that she’s never felt a dominant’s touch, the temptation to turn virtual into reality becomes all too great…
Loving You Easy starts with Cora Benning starting a relationship using her avatar Lenore with a mysterious man, Dmitry, from a kinky online game called Hayven. Over the course of the four months she finds a friend and virtual lover with Dmitry, even if they have never met in person. Dmitry helps Cora to enter into the Dominate/Submissive world, and explore her hidden desires. Everything changes one night, after being forced by her best friend to attend a party with the goal of expanding her new IT business and create a network of clients; Cora ends in what she thinks is the wrong place and time while texting Dmitry. While hidden in a dark corner, she witnesses a man and a woman having oral sex, and the man spotting her at the end. While Cora likes to watch others in Hayven, in real life, it’s a different story and she runs before the man can talk to her, but luck is not with her and she meets him before leaving the party.
Things for Cora start to go even worse for there, once she gets to her apartment she is ambushed by a man that says he is a player of Hayven and that he is there for their session they agreed on by email. Cora knows that that’s not true and is able to scream for help and is saved by her neighbors. She stays up all night and hacks the account of the man that almost rape her, and learns that her personal information from Hayven has been compromised and sent to the member that attacked her. The next morning, she finds Hayven office address and learns that is in the same city where she lives, and goes to talk with the owners. Life has other plans for Cora, as she meets the co-owner that ends up to be the man from last night party, Ren Muroya and the other co-owner, Hayes Fox, who without both of them knowing, know each other. This sets them in a path of friendship, lust, salvation, and most of all, love.
I liked Loving You Easy, while I have already read the previous books of the Loving on the Edge series, and know that it centers around BDSM, author Roni Loren doesn’t saturate the story with long and complicated BDSM scenes and leaves space for a love story for her characters to grow.
The first chapters of the story felt a little weak, but it starts to pick up once the story began to go around the hacking problem with Hayven, and Cora being more useful. It was exciting to continue reading because I imagine many different ways for Cora and Hayes to learn of each other identities in Hayven, and get together.
If you have read some of the book of the Loving on the Edge series, you will be familiar with the topic of polyamorous relationships, and in Loving You Easy we also see it with Hayes, Ren, and Cora. While Hayes and Ren’s relationship goes back to when they were teenagers, but kept strictly as friends to protect Ren, it was a very romantic and lustful scene when they declare their long love for each other. As well, when Hayes and Cora interacted with each other outside Hayven. The love scenes of the story are like always like how Roni writes, lustful and hot, but with a hint of love and acceptance of all parties.
Don’t be afraid to pick up this book just because of the genre of the series. The story is easy to follow and the characters are fun to read. A small problem that I had, was that at one-third of the story in, I figured who the villain was and got an idea of how it would might ended. But that aside, it was fun to read Loving You Easy.
If you are a fan of Roni Loren or her series Loving on the Edge, then I recommend you Loving You Easy. Here two best friends accept the love they have had for one another and meet a woman that fits perfectly with them, and makes all their lives perfect and easy.
