Guest Blog with Ayla Ruse!!
Ayla’s hijacked my blog today to talk about her amazing release The Deciding Factor.
Without further ado, here’s Ayla!!
Hi Tina! Thanks for having me on your blog today. I’m going to jump in with both feet and discuss a topic that can never get old: ménage.
I love ménage. I mean, really, who in their right mind doesn’t? Adding a third to a pair used to be something at which to scoff. You’ve heard the phrases, “Two’s company, three’s a crowd,” or “the third wheel,” and I’m sure there’re others. But three doesn’t have to be that way.
The number three is powerful in and of itself. It’s stable. It tightens and balances a pair that could easily break on its own. If you look around you, you’ll find evidence of three of some kind. There are triangles; there are tenses: past, present and future; there are the three graces. If you put even a little bit of thought behind the coincidence of three, you just might be surprised at what you’ll find.
Trust in the strength of this number is what drove me to write my first published story, and several other ménage stories thereafter. Yes, it’s exciting to read a tale involving the accepted two-person scenario, but to read a tale that involves three? That’s erotic as hell. I’m not talking strictly about the sex, either. To sustain a three-person relationship, each individual has to face challenges that not every Joe, Tom or Jane out there encounter. Emotion is involved, and everyone knows when you toss emotion into the mix, everything goes in one of two directions: out of whack or smooth as clockwork.
Today I’m sharing with you my first ménage story, The Deciding Factor. Other than being close to my heart because it was my first, I am still in love with these characters. I trust you will enjoy the ups and downs of their relationship as well.

RELEASE DATE: 1/17/2011
Being with two men suddenly became a lot more complicated …
Reuniting with both a first love and a first lover within a matter of days is enough to make any girl’s head spin. Alycia Delaney is no exception. About to turn 30, Aly decides to take charge of her lacklustre life and to live with a try-anything-new attitude. Too bad her attitude didn’t account for fate throwing two of the most important men from Aly’s past straight into her arms.
Sawyer Test and Luke Coldwell are best friends and each man wants Aly for himself. Leaving the choice to her, Aly opens door number three and decides they should embark in a summer-long ménage.
When talk turns into action, each participant is forced to question their impulsiveness, and Aly is left caught between the safety of a painful decision and the perils of following her heart.
“You’re right in what you said, Aly,” Sawyer said suddenly, stepping towards her with Luke right beside him.
“I am? About what?”
“Everything you said tonight,” Luke answered. “I don’t know why we didn’t think of it ourselves. But Sawyer believes we need to sit on the idea some more. Make sure it’s the right decision, overall. I say, let’s start now, but he wants to wait.” The look Luke shot Sawyer let Aly know Luke didn’t agree with his friend’s decision to wait, for whatever reason, but he’d go along with the results. If she read their silent communications correctly.
“Okay?” She didn’t want to delve into details of what they were talking about, she simply wanted out. “So I can go now? No hard feelings? I’ll see you later, then?”
At their nods, she walked forward as if to move between them. Just before she brushed past, Sawyer reached out and cupped her face. “Where do you think you’re going without a goodbye kiss?” he murmured.
“No kisses,” she started to say in protest, but the words ended on his lips as his mouth took hers fully. Her hands shot up to stop him, not believing he dared kiss her right in front of Luke. What if she got hit in the head when Luke swung?
In only seconds, she nearly forgot about Luke, moaning as Sawyer stroked his tongue against the length of her own, the caress racing all the way through her core. She reached up to touch his face and stiffened when a set of hands gripped her shoulders. Sawyer ignored her lapse and deepened the kiss, softly demanding her response. Luke’s body crowded her from behind, his heat warming her back. Aly couldn’t decide if she should be scared off or turned on.
She barely heard Luke’s whispered comment, but it must have made its way to Sawyer’s ears because the next thing she knew, large hands turned her around. Sawyer’s mouth slid off hers, only to be replaced with the fierce demands of Luke’s lashing tongue. She surrendered to the assault, whimpered as her panties went from damp to sopping, and gave herself over to the kiss, even when Sawyer began rubbing her back.
It wasn’t right to compare men. She should be bored with Sawyer’s lazy kisses. She should be repulsed with Luke’s aggressive mouth. Instead, both intrigued her and heated her body like no one person ever had. It’d be impossible to choose between the two of them. It had to be both or none.
Aly made up her mind to go with whatever the guys wanted. Her reference to a threesome had been a joke, but if they were serious, at this point, she wouldn’t argue.
