Summary: Imogen hasn’t had sex with her husband, Ty, in over a year. She’s still as attracted to him as ever, but they’ve both been looking for something new to renew their desire for one another. Yet she never thought to find it at a friend’s wedding when another couple invites them to share their bed. Ty is obviously aroused by the idea and the thought of a ménage thrills Imogen to her core. Could this be the key to rekindling their passion…and can Imogen go through with it?

Cover: Looks pretty much like the others in the series, so it is not very special in any way.

Thoughts: Unfortunately, I was hoping this one would be different from the last one in the Erotic Me series, which was about a woman and her sexual interactions with two men, and would leave me wanting more. From the summary though, you can read that Let Me In involves two couples and that sort of threw me off a bit.

Like the others in the series, Let Me In takes place during the wedding. Ty and Imogen are having troubles in the bedroom and have not made love in a year. Struggling with this and with herself, Imogen sort of sits around and blames herself the entire time. Imogen is insecure about the way she looks and she beats herself up about it the whole time, which eventually got annoying. Ty, her husband, is not as interesting as I hoped he would be. He is obviously still attracted to his wife, but Imogen is so unsure of herself that she doesn't really see this.

After overhearing a couple talking about swinging with others, they are invited to join them at the hotel room. It caught me off guard how easily Imogen was willing to participate, even though she claims to have never thought about it before. She seems pretty confident that this will help her marriage and so they decide to go ahead with it. Before reaching the room, things spice up with her and her husband, but instead of heading to their own bedroom to rekindle their fire, they still continue to the other couple's bedroom.

That pretty much made me want to stop reading, but I didn't. Things in the bedroom get sexually intense pretty quickly, but I wasn't really interested in reading between two couples and their sexual interactions. Imogen's quick decision in the end definitely made this a little better though, and I was able to read the end with a little satisfaction. Unlike the other books, this one had a lot more emotional problems and seriousness that made me wish it was longer. Not because of the two couple action, but because I wanted to learn more about Imogen and Ty, about their marriage and if they would be able to work it out. Their love and attraction still seems to be there, but it is tough to understand in such few pages why things have been going badly for them. I really wished that I could have learned more about them.

This was not my favorite in the series but it was still a good read. It can be be enjoyed by anyone who likes reading about ménage and is looking for a quick, fun read. Overall, I found the Erotic Me series to be fun and sexy, with a little bit of this and that for everyone to enjoy. The author was able to create a great short series that I am sure many will enjoy and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
