I’m a scoundrel
Playboy. Man whore.
Basically, I get around, and I’m not afraid to admit it.
So when my best friend opens up Salacious Players’ Club and asks me to head the construction, how could I say no?
Now we’re on a cross-country road trip touring other kink clubs, and I couldn’t be happier.
Life is good.
Then Hunter suddenly asks me to sleep with his wife…while he watches.
I’ll do anything for my best friend, but this is the one request I should say no to.
Isabel is the woman of my dreams, but she’s his.
And the exact reason I should say no is the one reason I say yes.
Because it’s not only Isabel I want.
These are the two most important people in my life, and if we go down this path, how will I ever be able to walk away?
I’m not sure my best friend understands just how much I’m willing to do for him—and why.

Hunter is one of the owners of the Salacious Players Club along with Emerson, Garrett, and Maggie. He's all business and always serious. He doesn't express his feelings very well and is never the first one to initiate tough conversations. He was raised by an abusive bigot father that basically brainwashed him into hating anything not believed to be normal - especially in terms of relationships.
Hunter is married to Isabel, the love of his life. Isabel is a yoga instructor with bright copper-colored hair and is lovingly called Red by Hunter. She is amazing as a wife and supports her husband in so many ways that are honestly endearing. Especially when it comes to helping him to accept his feelings and desires in what could normally tear apart a relationship, but her being the glue holding everything together, it just makes it stronger.
Their best friend is Drake. We've met him in the previous books and know him to be, for lack of better words, a man-whore. He's a player. He doesn't have any issues with finding multiple partners, more than one at a time, and either man or woman. He's open with his smexuality and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about it. But the problem is, he's always been attracted to his best friends. Yes... both of them. So when Hunter approaches him about opening up their marriage on a temporary basis, how can he resist?
You see where this is going?
So here's where it goes wrong... When they get back home from their road trip, lines are drawn in the sand. Was it temporary? Was it an ongoing thing? Is Hunter able to accept his newfound feelings toward his best friend?
This was such a hard book to get through I spent two weeks just trying to finish it so I could finish the series as a whole.
I don’t mind the polyamorous, why choose aspect but their relationship was messy and I could not stand Hunter. I think in typical why choose romances there always tends to be a favorite either amongst readers or even with the main character but the relationships are overall balanced. However, three is a horrible number. Three is the number in friendships and relationships where one bond is stronger than another and eventually it starts to grate into the other relationships and it very much felt like that in this book.
Hunter will go on the list of characters I absolutely hated. I know he had trauma to work through and had a lot of exploring and healing he needed to do but I disliked him SO much! I’m not fully convinced he was in love with his wife just that he loved her, which is different. I think he loved Isabel and was in love with Drake and it showed.
The sneaking around BS had me absolutely floored! Isabel and Drake weren’t supposed to mess around without Hunter, which they mostly stuck to, with the one exception being right after Hunter went behind Isabel’s back with Drake at the club and the other after TWO MONTHS of Hunter being gone and finally giving in once. Then when they tell him they didn’t sleep together for two months he says that’s on them and that they should’ve been doing it the whole time and that’s why he left even though he didn’t tell them that. To which Drake responds and says they never set any boundaries or rules for that so they respected him and didn’t do anything. Hunter NEVER showed that same respect to Isabel or their relationship in my opinion and I was fuming almost the entire book because I genuinely am not sure he would have chosen Isabel had he come out sooner and had had the option to be with Drake alone. He was with Drake multiple times behind Isabel’s back and never discussed it with her and I’m still upset that several times Isabel mentioned being insecure about her relationship with him especially when they started to being Drake in and that was never really addressed. The one night Hunter sleeps with Drake without Isabel she goes to bed after alone worried about what’s going to happen and it just doesn’t get brought up again.
That epilogue scene where Hunter and Drake straight up know they’re sneaking around but Hunter says he needs it too bad so they do it anyway was so annoying!
Drake and Isabel were good together and all of the spicy scenes between all three of them were well written but Hunter just consistently made me mad. If I ever reread this series I would skip this one.

I think my two biggest issues were:
1. The way Isabel was treated within their relationship.
She increasingly became sidelined and was essentially used as an excuse for Hunter to have the relationship he really wanted- with Drake. This culminated in the two men having sex without her, which to me came off as cheating. He could have easily told her when he went into their bedroom that it was going to happen so she could consent. He could have even suggested she watched, giving his consent to her actions.
(I’ll address her actions in this scene in my next numbered point!)
Especially as in the morning Hunter wasn’t even going to tell her about it, that made it even more cheating vibes.
Then there was the comment at the end that the 2 men sneak around behind her back, just because, even when she’s pregnant! This cemented my thoughts and immediately not like the dynamic there.
My other issue linked to this being they agreed early on her and Drake wouldn’t be together without Hunter, so why was it acceptable for the two guys to go there without her, without so much as a shoulder shrug at the betrayal? There needs to be boundaries set for all to stick to or adapt to, not just for some. It made Hunter come off as selfish.
2. My other major concern is the way bisexuality was shown and how MM relationships were fetishised for the female gaze. It really didn’t sit well with me.
The fact that there were characters who are bisexual was great, I’m all for representation in romance novels, but not if it’s purely for the ‘salacious’ entertainment of the reader. Having one of them who was a ‘scoundrel’ who wouldn’t be tied down because he would miss either male/female company if he committed to one person is such an awful stereotype of bisexuality. The idea that they’re all promiscuous purely because of their sexuality is completely wrong and made me uncomfortable at the implication.
Then there was the MM scene, which had so many red flags flying there was a tornado. Not only was it cheating (already mentioned) but why was it necessary for it to be from her pov? I understand sort of that the author wanted her to be involved in the scene as a way for her consent but it came off as female gaze. If that had been a man doing that I would have called it as completely wrong, and so I’ll call this out too. Like I mentioned earlier, a simple conversation beforehand between Isabel and them would have solved the whole issue before it even started.
I really enjoyed the previous 2 books in this series, and it’s a shame this one didn’t quite hit the spot for me. I’m not sure at the moment if I want to read the next. I’ll think on it.
I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't as spicey as I thought it would be, but it was top quality as always from Sara. In all seriousness, this is the BEST MMF I have ever read and the most believable in terms of being able to imagine it working for all three of them equally. The love between them was tangible and really well written by Sara, really honest and genuine and I was routing for them the whole way through. There were a couple of bits in it that I would have liked to have seen done differently.
1. This is more general in all MMFs - Hunter states that Drake is the best he has ever had at a certain act (hot as hell in the dark and not surprising) but earlier in a similar situation, Isabel states that Drake is 'different' but the way she responds to Drake throughout she is definitely getting something from him that she needs and at times better than from Hunter - and I think that's ok, why can't she be allowed to say that Drake is better than her husband at times for her - I just wanted her to be more clear on how it was better for her too (she was my favourite - major girl crush)
I get the bisexual/MM discovery, and it's so hot and emotional in this one and feels needed as Hunter and Drake work their relationship out. I liked that we got Isabel's POV when H&D were together for the first time fully - that's what made them all be together, even if they were not all physically together at that moment, it was important because of their dynamic as a trio and it was beautifully done and we got lots of other more detailed MM times!
2. I found myself wanting more Isabel and Drake - they were hot!!
Hunter and Drake ✅🔥⚔️ were covered really well and often
Drake, Isabel & Hunter was epic 🔥🔥🔥
Didn't get much Hunter & Isabel but they were so intune with each other
BUT Drake and Isabel's chemistry and emotional connection was fire! That relationship could have been explored much more to show them as a couple especially in the two months alone!! I think they would caved more than once 😉 There were more rules for Isabel and Drake than with Drake and Hunter - I get why, Isabel was amazing at helping Hunter with his sexuality but again - I was routing for her having as much fun and discovery with Drake!
3. Slightly more fire and jealousy - I do think there would have been a little more at the beginning, regardless of sexuality.
(I was also a little disappointed that they didn't invite Madame kink in for the epilogue! - that would have been super hot!! The babies were a buzz kill, nothing sexy about that! 😂😂 Joking aside though the epilogue was sweet (Drake and Hunter still horny together like boys!)
The bonus scene showed how they were together 2 years later which was gorgeous and a perfect ending, three soulmates coming together - perfection.
These are minor little points, this was a masterclass in a non toxic, poly, loving, sexy, equitable, friends MMF and utterly enjoyable.
Hunter and Isabel have been married for a long time, they met when Isabel was at the library, Hunter and Drake saw her and there was an instant spark. Since then, the three of them have been inseparable.
Drake is the player of the group, bringing home a different person each night and never committing to anyone.
The three of them are on a road trip to see different sex clubs, and see how they do things for ideas at salacious players. During a rope demonstration Hunter is aroused by his wife being tide up by his best friend, this sparks the curiosity of what it would be like to watch his friend have sex with his wife. That’s right, you read that right.
Now that his crazy curiosity is out of the box, they can’t go back to the friendship they once had, so what do they do now?
Well hello to a MMF relationship I wish I was apart of. Give Me More follows married couple Hunter and Isabel and Hunter's best friend Drake. What starts off as a bit of steamy fun between friends turns into much more.
There was one element of the plot that although didn't surprise me because I should have expected it I went into reading it not expecting it 😂 But I was here for every single moment.

I loved watching the characters work through their internal conflicts, especially Hunter and Drake, when they work the fine line between friends with benefits and friends with a whole lotta feelings.
”𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒓𝒈𝒚 𝒃𝒆𝒕𝒘𝒆𝒆𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒎 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝒐𝒇 𝒎𝒚 𝒕𝒘𝒐 𝒇𝒂𝒗𝒐𝒓𝒊𝒕𝒆 𝒑𝒆𝒐𝒑𝒍𝒆 𝒐𝒏 𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒉 𝒅𝒆𝒗𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒆𝒂𝒄𝒉 𝒐𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒉𝒂𝒔 𝒎𝒆 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒐 𝒆𝒙𝒑𝒍𝒐𝒅𝒆. 𝑰 𝒍𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒊𝒕 𝒔𝒐, 𝒔𝒐 𝒎𝒖𝒄𝒉.”
Sara Cate knows how to write a steamy scene but she folds in the emotional connection which makes you latch onto every single word. Sara Cate writes not only about kinks in this series but a strong emphasis to never be ashamed of it!
Give Me More is definitely my favourite in the series so far however Mercy is due soon with a strong female lead🖤
Getting back to Give Me More... This focusses on Hunter and Isabel and what happens when they change and explore their relationship with their best friend Drake. We met these characters in the previous books and I'll admit they mostly flew under my radar. Hunter and Isabel were quiet and Drake was a perpetual ladies man and seemingly professional wind up merchant. But once Sara Cate puts you inside their heads and you get each of their POV's as their entire dynamic changes - it amazing! Sara Cate writes their perspectives so well, you will be completely engrossed in how they all grow together.
As you might expect, discovering and exploring a polyamorous relationship comes with high highs, but also there will be lows. And this is where most of the plot is that drives the character growth. This is not a book with an external plot, nearly all the character development comes from internal emotional growth for each of the characters. And it's beautiful.
And not to state the obvious here but it's an exploration of polyamory - Expect Spice. And if you've read Sara Cate before... expect more spice than you've ever seen her write before. I'm not joking - be prepared. But please know that the sheer volume of spice is in no way at the expense of the exploration of the characters. It's a balanced spicy romance books and it's well worth your time to read it.
I received this book as an ARC (advanced reader copy) and I also bought a copy on release day because I love it so much.
