The Reunion by Adriana Kraft

 Dark and brooding, Adam Granger was always the bad boy out of reach-but now he's in Sarah Atkinson's bed, the morning after their twentieth high school reunion. When Adam beats a retreat to his Pacific Palisades estate, former good girl Sarah throws caution to the wind and pursues him. 

Petite copper-skinned Maria Ramirez greets Sarah at Adam's front door. The former exotic dancer doesn't challenge Sarah's assumption she's the maid-how long will it take the dark-haired beauty to figure out Maria is Adam's live-in lover? Better yet, how long before Maria can entice her into their bed?

Determined not to rock his hard-won lifestyle, Adam resolves to push Sarah past her sexual limits so she'll leave. When she stays, he watches helplessly as the two women fall in love with each other. Will they shut him out? And, if they let him in, what must he sacrifice?

I thought the blurb sounded interesting so I was rather excited to begin this book.  Unfortunately, after Adam and Sarah left each other after the reunion, things got rather strange.  Both of them had an attraction for each other in high school but Sarah didn’t go for it because she thought Adam saw her as plain and not worthy of his bad boy image and Adam didn’t make a move because he felt Sarah was above him. 
Adam grew up with a mom who was a short order cook so he left that small town as soon as he graduated and used his business intelligence to become very rich.  Sarah married a soon to be politician and was prepared to calm her life style down for him but when she found out she couldn’t have children he divorced her.  As time went on she made her money from being divorced.
Sarah went to find Adam after a hot night of passion during the reunion but when she got to his door step she found he was living with another woman Maria.  So the rest of this book is really just Sarah and Maria hooking up and deciding to convince Adam to join in.  There was a small plot in there with Sarah finding a new career in this process but really I just couldn’t wait to be finished with this book. 
If you are really looking for some hot sex scenes involving three people then you will certainly be rewarded with this book.  I like to have a plot with maybe some sex scenes; this was seriously a book of sex scenes with minimal plot.  The writing style was ok, it did get boring after a while, even with the changing POV’s and there really wasn’t any edge of your seat moments. 
I will say the author did a great job at creating characters that we could identify with in normal situations.  We could see how the back ground of each character had shaped who they were today, but it just felt like things went rather quickly for them to jump into bed with each other, which goes back to a book of sex with little plot.  She allowed us to feel their emotions and understand their motives, but even with that I felt this book didn’t live up to the hype that was created in the synopsis.
