Review of Delicate Freakin Flower by Eve Langlais

  Growing up with five older, over protective brothers and one snarling wolf of a father had made Naomi sure that she wanted no part of a shifter mating. She wanted something more refined and genteel, a nice normal human marriage, where furnishings and china weren’t broken on a daily basis. Why she let her best friend Francine talk her into going to a lacrosse game, she’ll never know. Sports were so barbaric, and the participants were muscle bound Neanderthals. When Ethan sees Naomi in the stands, he knows for certain he has found his true mate, and then proceeds to run smack into the plexiglass barrier that separates the spectators from the field. Tracking Naomi down proves no problem for Ethan, what is a problem is when his best friend Javier claims Naomi is his true mate as well.

  This is an awesomely great book. Within the first twenty pages, I had snorted up Pepsi. Eve Langlais can write her fool butt off. This was a funny, rollicking, and flat out raunchy story that I gobbled up like a pig at a trough. Even if ménage stories aren’t your thing, this is still a must read, but be warned it’s not for the faint of heart. The sex is dirty and graphic, not kinky mind you, just very adult. I loved it!! Naomi is such a great heroine, claiming she was a delicate flower, to be admired from afar. What a hoot! She was a rock’em sock’em girl at heart, tough, stubborn, strong and independent….just my kind of girl. The heroes, ( I just love making that plural), Ethan and Javier have been best friends since their college days, and complete opposites. Javier is a suave ladies man, who is definitely not a fan of monogamy. Ethan is over seven muscular feet of shy, sweet, “aw, shucks ma’am” , who is looking for his lifelong mate to make a home with. Working out the logistics to everyone’s satisfaction was a journey I am sure to be taking over and over again, because this is a keeper. Lest we forget, this is a romance, and it does have it’s tender moments. There’s also a dastardly villain afoot, just to keep the reader from getting complacent. I give this book my highest recommendation. Brava, Ms. Langlais. Well done.
