Selene Cavalier spent the majority of her time behind her cello. Her dull life was made up of dark notes, hard work and sheet music.

Bennett Monterosso did what he had to do to get his family’s winery up and running. He didn’t have time for his old ways. His quiet dominance had been silenced. His need was just waiting below the surface, until now.

Having her—it was all he could think about as he watched the young woman behind the cello.

Gage Calibri left his best friend, his home and his tarnished past five years ago. He suppressed his darker tastes, his physical appetites, and his secrets until he no longer had a choice.

It only took one night for these three lives to collide and to be altered forever.

This wasn’t what they were expecting. This wasn’t who she was. Each moment they sank deeper, each minute they felt more, each second they took her further.

Unhinged… restrained… this obsession… this love… it was all consuming.

****For Mature Audiences Only… Strong Sexual Content

“If you’d let us have you, we’d give you everything. Two men, Selene, with one purpose.”

”Menage” erotica romance is usually a hard limit for some readers. For one, it’s because the relationship between the MCs is unconventional. Not everyone is comfortable reading about three people in a relationship.

I have read a few menage novels, and I must say that most of them were very beautifully written in all aspects. Author Lillian Bryant’s (aka Author A M Johnson) Beneath The Vine is one of those.

Beneath The Vine is the story of best friends Bennett Montessoro and Gage Calibri. These two grew up like brothers and shared EVERYTHING with each other. Everything—women included. Due to some circumstances, they stopped doing what they used to do and parted ways. But then, the lovely cello player, Selene Cavalier happened.


I love how this book was written. It is done in alternating POVs (Gage, Bennett and Selene’s), so you will be able to experience the book thoroughly. Each character has a story that will pique every reader’s’ interest. It’s quite unpredictable, and I’m very sure that this is not the romance most of us commonly encounter.

And just when you thought one book boyfriend will be enough to send shivers down your spine, try two. Bennett and Gage are equally hot, yet very unique. I want both of these men for myself!

If you are looking for a read that is something more daring than your usual romance book, I am recommending you get yourself a copy of Beneath The Vine. This might be taboo, but I kid you not, this is exquisitely written. It screams SEXY on every page, but never short of twists that will take every reader on the edge of their seats.

It’s a 5 scorching hot stars for me all the way, no doubt! Lillian Bryant, you are now one of my most favorite erotica writers!
