Book Blurb:
Wild, hot, addictive sex…

After seeing one too many patients die regretting the things they haven’t done, nurse Lucy Seymour realizes she’s been making the same mistake. So when Robbie, the sexy golf instructor, makes his move, she responds with uninhibited passion, telling him there’s nothing she won’t try. Long sessions of foreplay lead to thrills and fantasy fulfillment…until Lucy sees Daniel, the greenkeeper, watching them. Watching her. And then Daniel does more than just watch…he joins them.

Can it lead to love?

Lucy might be exploring all of her secret fantasies, but her reality is that she’s a one-man woman…and for her, that man is Daniel. But what does Daniel really want? Lucy or the fantasy?

My Thoughts:
Before deciding to start this book I read the blurb and thought: “Wow this one will be a really hot fast read. Totally up my alley!” But what I got was not what I expected. I imagined an erotic menage with 2 hunky guys and a woman who knows how to enjoy herself. Okay yes, we have hot smex nearly non-stop, dirty talk, menage and voyeurism, but I also found a story about a desperate search for happiness and how to fulfill your craving for real love, even in a situation like this.

The story is told out of Lucy’s POV. Lucy works as a nurse in  nursing home and nearly daily observes one of the worst things that can happen to someone. She has to helplessly watch how some residents wither away, abandoned by their family and left to die alone. Her heart bleeds for them but she is unable to do more than give her compassion and love. She really takes too much of work home with her and suffers from the emotional strain such a job evokes. I could completely relate to this situation because my mother works in this job for 23 years now and I often saw what it does to your soul.

We also have Robbie,  the Pro. He’s Lucy’s golf teacher and the one who brought this whole story into motion. He seems to be the dirty sex god.  He is wicked and enjoys everything you can think of. He shows Lucy what pleasure is and pushes her more with every lesson. At first, I didn’t like him very much. He is hot but at some times I just wanted him to be silent and shut his dirty mouth. But it’s more to him than you see at first and even he found a little place in my heart at the end.

And lets not forget the third person in this story: Daniel. I always knew Daniel is a name you can whisper with utter love and adoration, thanks to Dr. Daniel Jackson from Stargate. This Daniel is exactly like that, without the super-intelligence and the aliens. He’s adorable and I fell in love with him from the first kiss. His character comes to live more from his actions and gestures than from his words, which aren’t many. My heart started to flutter like Lucy’s did and I desperately wanted them to get their HEA, even more when it seemed to be nearly impossible because of how everything started.

I also really loved how the story was told. We start our journey with Lucy telling us about what happened so far. She remembers how everything started and shows us the important situations, the memories she will never in her life forget. This gave Three Over Par an even more personal touch. It’s like reading a diary and I think perhaps that’s why I was teary eyed more than onces. At the end we catch up with her story and experience everything together with her. I was as nervous as Lucy and I think I never in my life felt so much for characters of a novella. I won’t tell you more but I can say this story will leave you with a smile on your face.

Three Over Par is something very special for me. It combines a wonderful erotic story with so much emotion it will leave you wanting more. Mrs. Brunet is definitely an author I will watch very closely, in a non-stalkerish way and her next release will be on top of my TBR for sure.

I give Three Over Par 5 out of 5 bookies.
