Raising the Stakes - Jess Dee This is the next set of three to get it on from the poker party. Again, Megan is in love with two people. She's been in love with her best friend for four years, but came to the conclusion long ago that they would always be just friends. About the time Des introduces her to Alex, Des realizes he loves Megan, but he doesn't want to get in the way of Megan and Alex's budding relationship. Which is apparently super hot and filled with sex. Doesn't really seem like enough time for the "l" word, but they're totally saying it to each other. So finally Des can't deal with it anymore and tries to send Megan away, but stubbornly, she won't let him go. He breaks down and tells her he loves her. Good thing Megan's had three-ways before so she can be the one saying "No, this is OK" to be with Alex and Des. Both boys give in to temptation and Megan gets what she thinks is the best deal. I can't put my finger on why, but I didn't like this one as much as the first. I liked it, it just wasn't full of the same emotions as the first. That said, I still look forward to the third one.
