Review: One Four All by Julia Rachel Barrett

One Four All by Julia Rachel Barrett

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand Publishing
Genre: Menage Romance

Heat Rating: 3



Lira Pakan, heir to the Throne of Zhinshu, has vanished. Her zealots gather along the border with the neighboring state of Khubuk, awaiting the outcome of her father's pleas to the World Court.

Captain Tanner Kepp serves in the elite Special Forces of Khubuk. When the captain is ordered to choose two men to accompany him to Land's End, an isolated compound on the maritime border between Khubuk and Zinshu, the last thing he expects to find is the missing princess.

Captain Kepp, Arms Master Cer Watso and Sergeant Redda Till realize they must rescue her and avert all out war.

The princess, however, has other plans. These men can be more than her rescuers. According to the law of Zhinshu, she must choose three men as consorts. Her people say: "one to guard the right hand, one to guard the left hand, and one to guard the back, always."

Yadkny’s Review

Lira a princess and heir to the throne of Zhinshu has been kidnapped and now being held hostage by a man who wants a child from her so he can control two nations. Lira is no sitting flower, so when a group of three men literally crash into her room she knows it’s time to make her move to plot escape while simultaneously binding herself to her three chose consorts.

Three Khubuk soldiers have been dispatched to watch the wife of a very important man. Captain Kepp is immediately indignant when told of the assignment knowing full well his talents along with those of his two comrades are better served to fight the Zealots that are threatening there border. Something about this assignment isn’t right from the beginning and the three men know it, but they decide to play along.

This is definitely one of spiciest ménages I’ve read and no doubt will make a great next read for those looking in this particular sub-genre. I do have to say that although I liked where the storyline was going, I was a tad confused along the way. Between learning the names, personalities of the people you need to know, and then learning of the world built around them. I wouldn’t have minded if the story was a bit longer to help accommodate that. It also may seem a little strange to some that the main characters involved fall in love within a matter of 48 hours of knowing each other, but then again with a little imagination, those types of “wait a minute…” moments melt into the background as the story progresses and you get to know more about the characters. The ending of course was very fitting and can easily be viewed as the intro to the next installment, if there was to be one.

Recommended reading for those seeking a spicy ménage set in a new world between a princess and three of the hottest soldiers you’ll have the pleasure of meeting.
