Drilled by Opal Carew

When construction worker Danni goes to the latest job site over the weekend to redo some of her crew’s sloppy work, she doesn't expect the billionaire owners of the company, Blake and Evan, to be working overtime as well. What starts out as a flirty invitation to cool down with a swim turns hotter than Danni could’ve ever imagined. Soon Danni finds herself longing for more than a casual fling with her billionaires, but how could they ever want more with a simple construction worker?

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
M/F/M Novella Romance

Danni is her own woman. Despite what her stepfather would like, she has stuck to her own guns and kept doing what she loves – construction. It helps her feel close to her dad, who passed away. Even though she doesn't have a great mom and her stepdad is skeezy and mean, she has forged ahead.

When she goes in on the weekend to ensure that the work is done correctly, she runs in to Blake and Evan. They are two sexy business men who just happen to own the business that she's helping to construct.

Blake and Evan work hard. They also like to take pleasure in the same woman. While you don't know very much about them, you do know that they both like Danni.

This is a very quick, steamy read. It is not very developed, but then again, it's too short to really get into anything. The chemistry is okay, but the scenes are very hot.

Cute, sassy afternoon read with lots of smexy times. There are a lot of familiar plot lines, disappointing stepdaughter (that would be Danni) and the hot to trot billionaires (Blake and Evan), girl needs a favor, billionaires that hate to be used, and a mother who lays on a guilt trip to her poor daughter to save her husband.

For a short story, it works. If it had been 100 pages longer I fear it would have gotten repetitious, but in this length, the chemistry between Blake, Danni, and Evan jumps off the page. I'd say it leaves you wanting more but anything more would be too hot to handle...

This is a quick read with a potential sequel in the making.

3.5 stars

This novella starts with an old school porn set up (business men surprised by a sweaty, scantily clad construction worker) and quickly moves on to a second, equally familiar Pretty Woman/Pygmalion storyline. The tropes are a little tired but this is erotica with a touch of storyline. The sex is hot and the m/f/m ménage scenes are steamy and pretty creative.

Construction worker Danni is actually a pretty interesting character. Her family drama doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but I enjoyed her as the billionaire pair’s ‘bit of rough.’ Readers who enjoy a Pretty Woman story will like the scenes where the men take her for a designer makeover.

Blake and Evan are the usual attractive and attentive romance fiction billionaires. There is a tiny bit of m/m play in this story, but the author makes it clear that these are straight guys humouring Danni. I’m always a bit dubious about the straight guys who want a long-term m/f/m relationship, but Blake and Evan are sexy and I did enjoy their sexual adventures with Danni.

The actual storyline left me a little bewildered but I don’t think anyone is going to read this for a storyline. There are some fun moments and some very sexy scenes in this story.

This book is pure escapism with some hot and steamy scenes, but a with slightly odd story wrapped around it.

It undoubtedly features a level of insta-lust that works, but three-way insta-love that seems a little excessive, even for someone who believes in love at first sight.

I enjoyed the turn around in that the construction worker was female, but she was doing it by choice, not because she was without means. Her back story was a little odd, and her relationships with her stepfather and mother were rather strange. But her encounters with Blake and Evan were erotic, if unlikely!

As I say, pure fantasy, and sometimes that is all you need!
