I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they don’t need to know anything, but that they are not alone in my heart. – Madison

I’m no stranger to love triangles. However, Sex Love Repeat is not your typical love triangle.  Madison Decater is in an open relationship with both Paul and Stewart. She’s freely admits to loving both guys and is very confident and comfortable with this situation where both make her happy. Paul and Stewart are both aware of the other and accept the situation; one who willingly shares and the other does it for love. As long as their worlds never mix, this arrangement remains uncomplicated for Madison. Intrigued yet? You should be. This story ensnared me right from the beginning.

Madison is a beautiful young woman full of spirit and charm. She’s compassionate and selfless yet selfish at the same time. She makes no apologies for her unconventional love life. She loves two men and she loves sex with both of them. I never found her slutty, even with her insatiable appetite for sex, but I do think she might have a magic vagina with the way these two men are drawn to her. Okay, I’m kind of kidding. I can understand the attraction towards her. Madison really is a cool, unique, and easy to love woman with a passion for life. She does know that one day the expiration date on this arrangement will expire and she’ll be forced to make a choice. Until then, she will continue to love and have sex with both men.

Stewart Brand is a rich businessman - he’s dark to Paul’s light. He’s sophisticated, demanding, and intensely fierce in bed. He’s also a workaholic. His first love is his job and Madison comes second. Madison met Stewart before Paul came along. She told Stewart upfront when they first started dating that she refuses to be in an exclusive relationship with him, knowing he is married to his work. With her vigorous sex drive, Stewart didn’t want Madison having sex with strangers, so he pushes her into finding a boyfriend. One who could fulfill her sexual and emotional needs when he’s not around. That’s how Paul comes into the picture.

When she meets Paul Linx, a professional surfer, Madison is immediately drawn to his charming smile and gorgeous body. He’s carefree, attentive, and is crazy in love with Madison. He wasn’t keen on this the arrangement at first but he agreed to it out of love for Madison. It’s hard not to choose a team, no matter how hard I tried to remain neutral. Though, from the moment I met Paul, I chose him. I just couldn’t help it. He’s easy to love with his easy-going personality, tender heart, and his unconditional love for Madison. I have much respect for Paul even though part of me was baffled he would be willing to share Madison.

This boundary-breaking relationship pushed a lot of my emotional buttons. I may not be a jealous person when it comes to my husband… but what’s mine is mine. It was hard at times to watch Madison go back and forth between Paul and Stewart. There was one scene in particular that had me gripping my kindle. I didn’t know whether to be turned on or turned off by that scene. I just don’t get the concept of sharing your partner with someone else. But it worked for them, which is why I was so totally enthralled by the story. It was fascinating to see two men share one woman with no drama involved. And the more page time I got with Madison, Paul, and Stewart, the more I became invested in their lives.

Of course, this unconventional love triangle can’t last forever. There is a shocking, clever twist revealed early on in the book, so you begin to anticipate how it will all play out by the end. And when an accident forces both men to come face to face, there is shock and tons of emotions – then everything changes. And a decision is finally made. Just so you know there is a happy ending for all the characters involved.

Sex. Love. Repeat. is an intriguing, provocative, thoughtful, sensual, emotionally conflicting, unique, well written story with chapters alternating POV’s between the characters. If you are like me, you might be rattled by the arrangement at first, but then come to embrace it when you realize that Madison feels genuine love and commitment towards both men. And, of course, there are plenty of wickedly dirty sex scenes that will melt your panties. Wow-wee. This book has my smut stamp of approval. Two sexy heroes, lots of sexy times, a fascinating love triangle, and a cool heroine – what more could you ask for? This book is definitely worth reading.
