Struggling artist Ariane Arlington flees the Welsh valleys after exposing her corrupt boss. But when the sun rises she finds herself jobless and homeless in Cardiff city with barely a penny to her name.
She responds to an advert in the local paper—Room to let, wanted, girl to share. What she doesn’t realize is that the two insanely gorgeous guys who live in the penthouse apartment really do want a girl to share, in every sense of the word. Fortunately for Ariane, rent is the last thing on their minds.
She discovers the men are bound together by a turbulent past. Liam, a computer whiz, keeps a painful secret hidden beneath his buff exterior, whilst Quinn, a pioneering neurosurgeon, wonders if he’ll ever meet a woman who can live with his controlling ways. They admit the one thing missing from their lives is a woman just like Ariane, who can handle them both in and out of the bedroom and who, together, they can keep satisfied, loved and most of all, safe.
When Ariane Arlington discovers incriminating records on her would be lover's computer, she takes matters into her own hands and notifies the authorities. Fearing for her life, she leaves everything behind and runs. Penniless and searching for a place to stay, she stumbles across an advertisement, responds, and finds a lot more than she could have imagined.
Liam and Quinn are the closest of friends thanks to their shared history, but aren't attracted to each other, a very uncommon element in a typical menage. Neither can devote themselves completely and decide sharing one woman is the perfect answer.
I was pleased with the level of emotion Ms. Harlem brought to the story. While Liam and Quinn have an inseparable bond, there is absolutely nothing sexual between them. Each trusts the other to take care of Ariane without thinking twice and for Liam his next day could be his last. Sultry love scenes that breathe off the page make Shared a You Gotta Read for fans of the genre and those who may be looking to read something out of their comfort zone.
