Review: Oasis of Pleasure by Tessie Bradford

Oasis of Pleasure
by: Tessie Bradford
$4.45 ebook
Ellora's Cave
Sci-Fi Erotica / menage
Released: October 2009

Driving to her vacation home, Elizabeth is driven off the road by a bright light.  When she awakens to find two multicolored drop dead sexy men standing over her, she's sure it's a dream.  That hope is shattered however as they explain she nearly died, and only their technology was able to save her.  Furthermore, they're aliens from the future, and taking her back to her own time is impossible.  Oh, and by the way, their race is sexually promiscuous, so feel free to have sex with whoever you want.  Poor Elizabeth must now learn about a different culture from hers, while trying to rebuild a life for herself on their exploration ship.  Hagan is the commander of the ship, and as such expects her to jump when told, in and out of bed.  His lover, Gareth, is a skilled medic who doesn't disguise the fact he wants her in his bed, preferably with Hagan as well.  Now Elizabeth must try and throw aside her ideas that sex with two men is wrong, and learn to enjoy the moment.  And really, with having two hunks worshipping her body, it shouldn't be that much of a hardship.

This was a quick and dirty read about one woman's quest to acclimate herself to a situation she had no control over, while trying to shed her ingrained inhibitions.  The sexual chemistry was hot, hot, hot, and so were the emotions as the three learned more about each other.  The book seemed to stagnate a bit towards the middle, and the ending seemed like it had been thrown in as an afterthought.  All in all though, it was a good book.
