Review: Semper Fi by Barrie Abalard

Semper Fi by Barrie Abalard

Publisher: eXcessica Publishing
Genre: Erotic Romance

Heat Rating:4



In this uncertain world full of lies and deceit, who doesn’t long for a mate that embodies solid values? Who doesn’t want a friend you can trust?

Jake Stone is searching for a woman whose values match his, a woman who will be Semper Fi—always faithful. When he walks into a bar one night to propose to his fiancée, he has no idea that he’ll be going home with two women he’s never met before.

Connie Woods has a thing for Marines, so both Jake’s looks and personal code draw her. She and her best friend, Amanda Foster, decide to spend a wild night in a hot ménage with Jake, determined to cheer him up after he is stood up and two-timed by the woman he planned to marry.

But a non-ménage sexual encounter with Amanda, and an upsetting first date with Jake, makes Connie think she’s lost both of them. Meanwhile, Amanda is hurt that her best friend won’t talk to her about what happened between them. And, Jake thinks he’s screwed up his chances with Connie. Can each of them find the love and happiness they are seeking?

Semper Fi, all about finding faithfulness and friendship in our uncertain world, reassures us that values still matter.

Warnings: This title contains graphic language, menage/group (M/F/F) sex, oral sex (F/F and M/F), masturbation, threat of a spanking (one swat).

Rachel’s Review

Abalard creates a world of militant men and the women who love them. Jake, the hero, can’t get over his obsession for a woman who evokes the term “Semper Fi” and the story revolves around his need for a companion of faithfulness and everything else the words exemplify. Hot love scenes, and a quick, if not flat, plot line lead you along on a tale of pop-goes-the-weasel.

This story would have been a better read if the author hadn’t Semper Fi’d it to death. I worry over the state of our Marines if they all walk around beating on their chest chanting Semper Fi, even when they’re not in a militant environment. In my opinion, the hero lost my interest about the 10th time he stated that he wanted a woman who was “Semper Fi”, and then when the women in his life started repeating the phrase, I almost put the book down. If you can over look this annoying repetition, then you’ll enjoy the heat in this story.
