Blog Tour, Rachel' Review: No Simple Sacrifice by Angel Payne and Victoria Blue

Handsome young business man looking down to his ring while holding one hand in his pocket.
If I could turn back time...
You know what they say about wishing for the impossible.
My name is Talia Perizkova, and time is usually my best friend. It's been good to me in the months since I left the man who nearly killed me, and I've returned the favor by working hard at Stone Global Corp, even getting promoted to lead one of SGC's key expansion projects.
There's only one mar on that record. The night I told time to kiss my ass, during a business trip to Vegas with my bosses--yes, my bosses--and experienced a night for the record books with them both. But what happened in the City of Sin refuses to stay there for any of us, and time has joined forces with his pal, karma, to exact payback where it most matters. In my heart.
Fletcher Ford. Drake Newland. They're two of the business world's sexiest, most sought-after bachelors, and I've fallen for them both. Their passion is everything I crave, their protection is everything I need--and their love is everything my orthodox family will never let me accept.
The solution, according to them, is simple. One man steps down, so at least two of us are happy.
I could find a way...
But sacrifices are rarely simple, and one plus one doesn't always equal happily-ever-after. That means all three of us have some huge, hard decisions to make. Take a chance on this rare love we've been given...or give in to fear, and lose each other forever?

Love Love Love this series!  There's always something new going on. The cast of characters is ever growing and oh so wonderful.  I want more, more, more!
Talia is in between a rock and a hard place..literally and figuratively. She has Fletcher; soft, sweet, an emotional connection that is amazing...and she has Drake; alpha, demanding, bossy...what I wouldn't give to be in her position. LOL
Drake and Fletcher are best friends, brothers as they refer to themselves and they share many women.  Talia just happens to be the latest, in her opinion, and she knows how the boys are and how women react to them.  She just can't reconcile the fact that they could have "real" feelings for her...and that she can have a relationship with two guys at one.  How can the three of them be a "couple"? Her totally traditional family would have a conniption fit.  Hence the drama of No Simple Sacrifice.
I LOVE Angel Payne's and Victoria Blue's writing.  Their story line is always top notch, full of wonderful words, great drama, suspense and super characters.  This was hot, sexy and heartfelt.
When Drake steps aside to give Talia the "couple" that she's caught up on (and we know it's just because her family and society can't comprehend threesomes) Fletcher and Talia fall apart.  What seemed so easy is actually the hardest thing Drake has ever had to do...and he didn't know how it would impact Talia and Fletcher too.
What a great book of feelings. What Drake feels, what Fletcher feels, what Talia feels and how each person affects the threesome.

Hi there. I'm Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover.
**I have a monthly newsletter now! Sign up for it right here: It's a cool way to get exclusive info, talk hot heroes, learn about new items in the Angel Payne store, talk hot heroes, further the pie or cake debate...and oh yeah, did I mention talking hot heroes? A bit about me... I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry. These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.
