Alexa is young, sexy and single in New York. She’s also alone. When she meets two hunky musicians, will they make her their perfect third?

Alexa is young, sexy and single in New York. She’s also alone. But she doesn’t want to date any more of the stuffy men she meets through her job at the law firm – she needs some excitement. When she meets hunky Lorne, a film score composer, at a premiere after-party, she can’t believe her luck when he asks her out.

After an incredibly hot night of sex, when it seems that this is just the relationship she’s been waiting for, things inexplicably cool down. Does his best friend and roommate, the dangerously handsome Antony, have anything to do with it?

One night the truth of Lorne and Antony’s relationship is revealed to Alexa, and she has a difficult choice to make. Is she willing to just let go and become their perfect third?

Reader Advisory: This story contains anal penetration, sex toys and BDSM.

Publisher’s Note: This story has been previously released as part of the All Together Now anthology by Total-E-Bound


What a great short menage story!

The first thing I want to share is how I enjoyed the characters in this story. Immediately, I was connecting with them. Leaving in a big city is not always easy and not everybody has a list of acquaintances and friends as big as a book. Most people have a job, few close friends, colleagues. Some people are always invited everywhere, know everybody and are extremely popular. Are they really happy? probably. But a lot of people are not Miss or Mister popularity and somehow miss the opportunities to meet any possible partner. Do you recognize in this description? I sure do.

I wished I had a colleague who would call me to invite me in a party like the heroine. Although it has been so long since I have been invited in a party that with my luck I would find myself in a bingo party or a very pushy and boring one… well. Thinking about it, I’d rather read a book like The Perfect Third!

The male characters were interesting but very much the kind you expect in a menage: the easy one and the intense one. Morticia Knight focused on the intense a little bit more and the sweet one did not deserve enough spotlight somehow. I was a tiny bit upset that no love words were shared between all of them even if we understand that 2 out of 3 are already in love with each other. Maybe the author wishes to develop a bit more this story and in part II we will see more development in the day-to-day relationship.

What I enjoyed was all the expectations, the hopes, the doubts, the disgust, the non-trust, the rejection, the leap of faith in a new relationship. Morticia Knight wrote it perfectly.

I would recommend that the publisher change “BDSM” per “Bondage”, not even “Bondage and submission” because one of the sex scene is definitely no more than some kinky bondage using sex toys.

The sex scenes were hot and I particularly loved the last one.

Overall, it was a short story that I liked a lot and do recommend to read. I hope to read more of this author. Her writing is extremely enjoyable and easy to read. Well done Morticia! 🙂

adult excerpt

“I appreciate your enthusiasm,” he said, locking with her eyes again. “I plan to reward it.”

He pushed her back on the couch, lifted one of her legs up against its back, and positioned the other so that her foot touched the floor. With her splayed before him, he began to caress and rub the inside of her thighs, reaching higher towards her hips, and rubbing her stomach. She leant back on her elbows and moaned. He reached a little higher and cupped both breasts, pinching and rolling her nipples until they were hard.

“Oh, yes,” she whispered. “That feels so good.”

As he continued to work her nipples, he slid closer to her until his mouth reached her inner thighs, where he nipped and licked at the sensitive skin. He alternated licking, love-biting, and brushing his lips back and forth on each side, moving ever closer to the lovely folds between her legs. She was beginning to move slightly under his ministrations, her hips thrusting forward, closer to his busy mouth.

“Oh, Lorne, please,” she begged. “Please…”

“Mmmm…that’s nice, the way you’re asking. I think I should give you your reward…”

Lorne’s tongue thrust deep between her wet pussy lips and soft, trimmed curls and searched for her waiting clit. She cried out in pleasure, and began to buck more insistently beneath his lips. Clearly inspired by her obvious enjoyment, he slicked his tongue around and over her clit, furiously bringing her to a frenzy. Just when it seemed she would lose control, he backed off, and let his tongue go to other parts of her most intimate area.

First he pushed into her vagina, his strong tongue acting like a little cock as it rammed into her. Then he lifted her hips a little more, and his tongue travelled further back, teasing between her back cheeks, searching for her other entrance. He swiped his tongue at the hole a few times, and Alexa responded to every little thing he did with all types of cries of pleasure. Lorne laid her down, and began to move back up to her throbbing clit. This time he furiously wiggled it with his tongue, not letting up for a second. Alexa’s whimpers and cries were becoming stronger and more rhythmic, her hips keeping time with the dance of Lorne’s tongue.

He kept at her until she could hold back no longer. As he grasped her hips tightly, seemingly to control her pleasure, she screamed out in release, Lorne only backing off when she was fully done. He kept his face between her thighs as she panted in the aftermath, kissing the inside of her thighs again and again until she was completely through.

“My God, you taste heavenly,” he said.

With that, he turned her over onto her stomach.

“Are you ready for more?”

“Oh yes, Lorne.” She could barely talk, she was still so aroused. “Do whatever you want; that was fantastic.”

“Whatever I want? Are you sure?”
