Book review: A Bouquet of Gardenias by Judy Kemp

What is it about?

Jenny bumps into her old acquaintance Fiona and feels instantly attracted to her. When she finds out Fiona is stuck in a loveless marriage and cannot get pregnant by her husband, Jenny suggests that her husband impregnate Steve. Steve agrees, but what was supposed to be a clinical action rapidly evolves into days of passion in which the three cannot get enough of each other. Their relationship becomes more and more addictive and erotic, stretching the bounderies of their sexual experiences.


This book was definitely intensely erotic. Every chapter had loads of sex in it. There wasn’t much of a plot, so if you like your erotic fiction with a plausable plot, then this book is not for you. However, if you want to read about lots and lots of sex, then this is perfect. The book wasn’t the worst written erotic novel I have ever read, but the sex scenes are believable and the interaction between the two women was incredibly hot. I liked how they both had two different body types and both of them were sexy in their own way.

I haven’t been able to find a lot of FFM menage a trois books which weren’t written from the point of view of the man. I loved the sexual awakening of Fiona and how Jenny coaches her through her sexual experiences. Especially Jenny showing Fiona how to use a vibrator in the beginning of the book was really erotic. I can absolutely recommend it if you like FFM couplings.

The book does get darker halfway through and it kind of lost me towards the end. There is a lot of anal sex (not my favourite) and extremel flogging, caning and beating (also not my favourite). I guess you need to take the sex scenes up a notch if you don’t want the book to be boring and you don’t have a lot of plot, but that part wasn’t entirely my cup of tea. I still finished the book though, but if you are squeamish you probably don’t want to read all the way to the end.

I don’t think this book would be a reread for me, but I would definitely read certain parts again, particularly from the beginning. And with it being free on Kindle Unlimited, you can’t go wrong giving it a try.
