Twice Upon a Blue Moon by Helena Maeve

Some affairs are like playing with fire, but knowing you’ll get burned is no reason to throw the game.

When her best friend doesn’t show up after a no-strings date with a man she met in a fetish club, Hazel is duty-bound to fetch her from what could be a sticky situation. She doesn’t expect to find her friend’s date so attractive—or so unflappably cool. Not that it matters. Hazel has been burned before and she knows to stay away from handsome men who are patently out of her league, especially when they’re involved with her one and only friend.

Tesla-driving, suit-wearing Dylan more than fits the bill. But every barb Hazel throws him makes him rise to the challenge, and he doesn’t want her to find a way to say no. But not only does Dylan have his own playroom and a sound grip on the S&M lifestyle, he’s also a man of many secrets. Dylan sees a place for Hazel in his bed, but what he wants is more than a one-night stand.

As she acclimates to the idea that Dylan may not be entirely straight or entirely single, Hazel soon finds herself caught between two dominant men whose bond seems to balance on a knife’s point.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of BDSM.

Twice Upon a Blue Moon has a lot of things going on, some get explained, some don't. For me the unknown left big holes in the story.

Hazel has a bad experience with a past boyfriend or her Dom in a D/s relationship. But she falls for a previous one night stand her friend Saddie picked up at a fetish club. Dylan is sweet and takes his time with Hazel giving her what she needs. He wants her to meet Ward, who is his Dom or boyfriend? She's not a fan of Ward from that first meeting or the second. Ward is moody, and not at all like Dylan. Can she be attracted to these completely opposite men?

There was so much not talked about - Hazel's past? The relationship between Ward and Dylan? Saddie's text in the last chapters. I am hoping the follow up book explains the holes in the story.

I enjoyed this story, and read it straight through, foregoing lunch! But I am confused as to why! I have a feeling that the second book in the series will make some of it clearer. For sure I need and want to know more.

Hazel is a rather enigmatic character, and although I thought I had a picture of her in my head, I have a feeling that I believed her description of herself too readily, and maybe she is far more gorgeous than she recognises. She certainly gets both Dylan and his friend Ward somewhat intrigued. There isn't a cliffhanger ending – and book 2 is available anyway (thank goodness) so I would recommend that you give this a read – especially if you like unconventional relationships, with a BDSM undertone.

Helena Maeve has always been globe trotter with a fondness for adventure, but only recently has she started putting to paper the many stories she's collected in her excursions. When she isn't writing erotic romance novels, she can usually be found in an airport or on a plane, furiously penning in her trusty little notebook.
