The only word that comes to mind to describe this book is, "weird. Everything in the story is very ambiguous, maybe even incomplete? For example, we aren't told anything about who the woman in the book is- we just know her name and that she has some specific taboo interests. We don't get to care about her or any characters. Basically, this very short book is like watching the middle scene of a full-length movie. Here we only get to, "see"a creative and unique sex scene but then we are left wondering what led to that scene occurring and what will happen after. If the author did ever write the before and after portions to create one complete book, I'd love to read it!
This book was given to me for free in exchange for my honest review. This is a very short story. The positive side to the brevity is that it was direct, to the point and without any unnecessary narratives or rambling dialogue. On the flipside, I was disappointed at the abrupt ending and would have liked to have read more about the couple in the story.
This book simply describes the sexual escapades that occur between a man and a woman on just one evening, during just a few hours (if even that long). There are a few unexpected, entertaining twists that I found to be creative and which caught me offguard. More specifically, just as I thought the story would be about one thing, the author reveals that things are not at all as they seem. It definitely was an interesting read and I do not feel that I wasted any time by reading. If it had just a little more substance, I think this could be a fantastic book. I would definitely read more by this author.

Sharing Naomi is a short, sexy story story about a couple (Naomi and Matt) and Matt's best friend Harry. Basically, it's the story of what happens when Matt and Naomi agree to invite Harry to join them for a threesome.
There are thousands of ménage stories out there yet I found this one particularly refreshing due to how realistic it was. For example, Matt and Naomi don't simply ask Harry to jump into bed with them; the way the threesome is arranged is a bit more complicated than that. I was very impressed by Ms. Mackenzie's ability to write in a way that allowed me to practically feel the character's emotions, excitement and at times their tension and anxiety. At times, the emotions and insecurities were palpable. I am confident that if I was Naomi's, I would've had the same concerns and feelings she had. I can also imagine many men behaving and feeling similar to how the male characters in this story did. Because this book was so realistic and believable, I enjoyed it much more than most of the other ménage stories I have read.
Although I liked this book, it wasn't perfect. Unfortunately, the story ends rather abruptly and, in my opinion, ends in an odd way. There's no cliffhanger yet for me, there was some unfinished business related to Harry. Also, there were several typos and words were completely missing in several places. I did enjoy the story though and will definitely be reading more books by McKenzie.
