"One story begins with a female hooker attending the funeral of her former client. Another is about a long-married couple who try to escape the obvious fact that their marriage is failing by having a weekend tryst. There is a beautifully written narrative in which a model discusses the many pressures women face to be attractive and the damaging psychological and physical effects of those pressures. All of the authors included in this book are incredibly talented, however, I feel as though many of them are using the erotic genre to express deep thoughts about life. This is great if you want an almost philosophical read about the various ways that sex becomes involved in human emotional conflicts." —San Francisco Book Review

"This collection is what I’ve come to think of as vintage Alison Tyler–playful and sexy, but with an underlying substance that engages you emotionally, not just sexually. These stories will turn you on, but they’ll also invite you in." —Malin James

"The book Three Way, edited and co-authored by Alison Tyler, features some of the hottest menage à trois in print in some of the most original ways. Not one story was the typical three way I would have imagined. I imagined some hot stories, but I also imagined typical girl, girl, guy stories. This book was such a refreshing surprise."—Kissin Blue Karen

"Reading this book is like apple pie ala mode but with an extra scoop of ice cream—yes, it is that much fun." —Reviews by Amos Lassen

Party of three?

In Three Way, 21 of the very best erotica writers offer steamy and surprising variations on the ménage à trois, erotica readers' most often named favorite sexual fantasy. Editor Alison Tyler has gathered a thrilling variety of scenarios that are playful, sensuous, and dangerously explicit. Stories include "The Scarless" by Marcelle Perks, an edgy story about an X-rated movie shoot starring multiple men and a lone woman, and "Third Party" by Dawn M. Pares, where a couple pick up a third at a bar, as they do every so often, only this time their new friend is not quite what he seems.

Three is definitely a charm in this adventurous anthology that begins with Tyler's own true confession of her own first three way at a naughty nineteen years old. In her own words, "Three means more of everything. Maybe I am greedy but, when it comes to sex, I like more of everything. More fingers. More tongues. More limbs. More tangling and wrestling on the mattress." Lucky for readers, she is not the only one and has lovingly selected salacious stories such as dante Davidson's super sexy "1-900-FANTASY," and the masterful Thomas s. Roche's scorching "Two Guys and a Girl," as well as the orgasmic orgy featured in Rebecca Henderson's "Circle of Friends." Alison Tyler's Three Way, serves up plenty of great sex, proving true the adage that "good things come in threes."
