    I have to admit that I was feeling a little jaded about reading another Menage. I'm happy to say, I'm over being jaded! This book is funny in spots and the loving relationship they have is awesome and added to that, well, lets just say my recliner's still smoking!Patrick gives you very good POV from both husband and wife and he's spot on in that! Be prepared to read this when your not going to have distractions because believe me it's a book that your not going to want to put down until the end. He is on my favorite list and I'm looking forward to his future books!

    Marriage is often presented as something very depressing in erotic romance and erotica. At least when the novel starts with an already married couple It’s either a crumbling union of two people who can no longer communicate, a source of endless sexual frustration. The stories of the genre with a married couple usual revolve around cheating, illicit affairs, blackmail. The two partners are silent about what bothers them and what they want but are too ashamed to admit. Sometimes they survive the bad circumstances the author puts them through and come out stronger and happier, with a reconstructed relationship. In other cases, the couple falls apart and finds their physical and emotional desires with another partner.I know a conflict is necessary to drive the plot, however, the idea that a marriage always leads to a rut and routine can be depressing. The Present, a debut novel by Patrick Khayler, had none of the above-mentioned tropes. It was a pleasant surprise and one of the most hopeful and deeply erotic books I’ve had the delight to read. The fact that the author wrote it for his wife who inspired him made The Present even more special.The idea that two people can have a passionate and steamy connection even after years of marriage and children was exciting.Lisa and Davis, the two protagonists of that ravishing tale of sensual awakening, have been together ever since their college days. I loved the fact that their relationship didn’t start as a love at first sight. They had to build their relationship and the intense passion that ended up consuming them was a result of their friendship and communication. First of all, they had to learn to trust and open up to each other before taking a swim in the pink ocean of their wildest erotic fantasies. It was amazing how they could be so honest with each other over things most contemporary people are embarrassed. There was no such tension and unspoken, pent up longings between them. No topic or sexual fantasy was too taboo or too uncomfortable to discuss.That is not to say they were two irresponsible human beings going at it like rabbits while the world is falling apart around them because they are too consumed with physical lust. They had a steady family and home. Davis was a good father who valued the time with their children. Lisa was a sweet and caring mother. In many ways, they were a normal couple and the last people one would suspect of having such a hot and kinky sexual chemistry. It was great they were finding ways to satisfy their passion and not fall into the same routine and at the same time they didn’t allow the sexual urge to take control over their life.The characters were so real, with their flaws, good sides, highs and lows I felt like these were actual human beings. Over the course of their ten years anniversary, I felt like I truly got to know them, feel their lust, their needs, fears and every emotion they went through.Lisa was truly a ferocious minx and probably my favorite in The Present. Sometimes during their marriage games, she plays the submissive, allowing her husband to tie and tease her body. She was the real mistress of seduction in that story, always in control, even when her body was aching in desire. The way she slowly built up the innocent Becky’s slow seduction was truly a thing of beauty. Lisa was smart enough to know when to play hard and when to use sweet words and seductive imagery.Davis was truly her match in every sense of the word. He was a good man with moral values and principles so it was really fun to read about the way his wife was teasing and alluring him. I’m not going to spoil the story for you by revealing too much but it was both endearing and incredibly hot to read about him reigning in his desires. Of course, Davis was also pleasantly dominant and once he was in charge he knew exactly how to revenge for the sweet torment.Becky… well, a lot of women would identify with her. It was empowering to see her transformation from a depressed divorcee full of insecurities into a woman on her way to discover a new life full of unexpected possibilities. I loved her character and I really look forward to reading some of the next books she is a character of (Valentine’s Dreams and Bound By Cotton).The pace of the story was perfect. Even if the story took place within only a day and a night it never felt rushed. Everyone was really natural in their reactions and I could see such a special anniversary really happening.Patrick Khayler’s writing was absolutely beautiful. He has the talent to wrap even the filthiest situations in magic and seduction. There is a lot of sex in the story and yet it never feels crass or just inserted for the shock value. He uses words to craft an erotic spell and make his reader experience it all as if truly taking part in the story, feeling every touch, kiss, and every sensual pulsation. His steamy scenes were perfect and imaginative enough. I’m sure that if you choose that book you’d get inspired to try many of the situations, Lisa, Davis and Becky play with.If I have any criticism about the writing and the story it is that at times the description of the house and places was a bit too heavy. There were some scenes at the hospital with Davis that I felt a bit unnecessary to the story but they were short enough so they didn’t distract me too much. I was also not sure if we really needed a repetition of his first time with Lisa through his point of view. Other than that, in case you haven’t figured it out, I loved the book and I can’t wait to read more of Patrick’s erotic world, fantastic writing and great characters.If you want to read a book filled with ideas on how to spice your marriage and make your sexual life more adventurous this is your story. Five Sizzling Filthy Stars!

    First of all this isn't a short story. It is a full length novel.The story alternate between the POV from Lisa and Davis. We meet them on the day of their tenth anniversary. They are madly in love with one another and with the kids elsewhere it will be a memorable evening and night!Why do I like a story or I don't? First of all the main characters. I’d like to think of the heroes and heroines as real persons. So for a female it is important to me that she could be a friend of mine. I want to relate to her. Does she acts similar like I would – given the circumstances? Is she strong but sweet? Is she smart and caring? Lisa ticks all those boxes. I like her. Sometimes a female character is more and I fall in love with her. I didn't with Lisa.For the male characters, I want to fall in love with them. I like them strong. Strong enough to keep a smart and strong woman on her tiptoes. I like them dominant and sexy. And with added kink in the mix I’m a goner. Unfortunately I didn't feel that way with Davis. Probably the way he lets Lisa play with him. Although he is very likable, I didn't love him. He isn't dominant, more a Beta. Lisa is the one in control.An other part of what makes a book good for me is trickier. It is wether or not the story sits well with me, based on:• Are the people acting within character?• Does the storyline wants me to hang on and finish the tail? • Does the sex fit in with the story - does it contribute or is it sex leading like in a porn movie? • Does the sex make me hot and bothered?• How is the dynamic between the main characters? • And does the book contain (elements) of BDSM. For me “The Present” is a big hit on almost all of the above. There is only one thing that doesn’t make sense to me: Becky’s age. She seems older then Lisa - despite her lack of experience -, but then Lisa calls her ‘my young friend’.I like that it is a novel. I am a fast reader and even if I can enjoy short stories, it is sometimes quite frustrating that books only last a day or an evening:-) so definitely a high score on that part.So overall a very pleasing book. Not one of my all time favorites. But definitely a worthy 4 stars rate. And definitely an author to keep in mind.Oh … And I know just the gift for our twentieth anniversary this year :-)

    Hot dayum, THE PRESENT is one seriously smokin' read! Lisa and Davis Hensley are celebrating their 10th anniversary, and neither can't wait to find out what's in store! The two are constantly trying to outdo each other with their sexual depravity, and this year is no exception. Lisa's last minute decision to invite newly single Becky into their bed will give all three of them the most erotic night of their lives! THE PRESENT is the first novel by Mr. Khayler, and it's a doozy!! This book was one big episode of foreplay, from Lisa's decadent seduction of Becky, Becky and Lisa's seduction of Davis, Davis' dominating demeanor, Becky's innocence yet sexual ferocity once she gets going…it's all erotic as hell! Bonus: there's a little porn for everyone, some girl on girl action, some cuckold fantasies, pegging, MMF lovin, some BDSM, a little D/s, it was all packed in there as scene after scene unfolded before me. The characters weren't particularly developed, but I don't think they need to be in a book that is primarily erotica. Instead, Mr. Khayler lets us experience every encounter as Becky would, not really sure about the couple who will rock her world, but damn willing to let them lead her to paradise. This is an extremely hot book, one that fans of FFM menagé and FF storylines will enjoy. I know that I personally couldn't tear my eyes from the pages, staying up well into the night to find out what the three of them would get up to next! Bottom Line: This is a long book, but it's thick with arousal and the weight of delicious sexcapades. THE PRESENT pushed all my buttons!! - See more at: http://erotic.theromancereviews.com/v... - See more at: http://erotic.theromancereviews.com/v...

    This book made me late for after school care pick up because I sat in the car finishing it! It is unbelievably hot, from the beginning to the very last page. It is my favorite kind of erotica- totally possible under implausible circumstances. Khayler adds authenticity by weaving the mundane of daily family life and work with fantasy, memories of past sexual escapades, and the anticipation of a hot, hot night.The underlying love story of two people wrapped up in real life--kids, jobs, responsibilities--sang through the heat of the crazy menage sex. Throughout the book, you get a sense that the author is writing from experience. In the early chapters, he details the awkward beauty of the couple's first time together. It was like a look into a real past that blossomed into a happy lifetime, seasoned with hot fantasies.The narrative was bulky in spots, but the sex was so hot, it didn't matter. Khayler's writing is slick and easy to read.If you are in the mood for wet panties, read this book.

    Writing erotica, as I'm sure that authors will probably agree, is very difficult and requires great skill. Some books will make you curl up your toes in embarrassment, while others can leave you cold and unconnected to the characters. Neither of these things will happen when you read this book - this I can guarantee! I won't re-run the story, or the premise behind it, as many others have already done so. But what I will say is that if you read the book and receive no libidinous effect, well you must be made of stone! The erotic content is pitched at just the right level. You never feel that the author is labouring the sexual imagery. It is written with great care for detail, without going over the top into caricature. I'm particularly impressed with the way the male author has interpreted the thoughts and feelings of the two women in the story. I can only assume that he is a very intuitive erotic writer, who understands the working of the female mind - a skill that is sadly lacking in some writers of his sex.As a first book, The Present is amazing, and the writer is guaranteed a successful career in this genre. And as it was written as a birthday gift for his wife, I'm sure that we all wish her many more happy birthdays, and look forward to many more books from this author.

    Need a new book to salivate over? My first book to read of Mr. Khayler. A sizzling Present indeed. The story of Lisa, Davis, and Becky was the most intriguing, breathtaking read. I love it. Beautiful articulate writing. I look forward to reading more of this authors work. Well done.

    What would you give your spouse for a 10-year anniversary gift? Lisa gave Davis a night to remember when the opportunity presented itself and she ran into Becky. Things turned uber hot in a hurry. It was erotic, sexy, yet full of love and respect. I love how both male/female POVs were captured spot on. Well written, and amazingly loving. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    OMG!! This book is seriously panty melting!! DO NOT READ IN PUBLIC!! well..... unless you are into that kinda thing lol ;) I suggest not reading this book when kids are home, rather start reading just before your other half is due home!! This is not just a story featuring FMF, but more a story of two people who love each other unconditionally, and have an open, honest relationship with each other that allows them to explore each others sexual fantasies in a healthy and beautiful way.Loved reading this

    The premise of this book intrigued me. I was curious to know what would cause a happily married couple to pursue a ménage, how the scenario would play out, and how the event would conclude. The story begins with Lisa preparing for her tenth anniversary with her husband, Davis. The reader is immediately presented with the couple’s profound love, and is periodically given a window into the past. At first, I read the flashbacks with hesitancy, considering it is a large amount of backstory. Yet it wasn’t long before I was sucked into their past. The way they met, fell in love, and their first sexual experiences with one another only made the couple more endearing to me. In fact, the sexiest scene is when they first slip their hands into each other’s pants. I could feel the rush, the excitement of touching someone for the first time. And the many games they play with one another, while slightly concerning if done in reality, were amusing and made for an entertaining lead into the ménage. When Becky is finally introduced, the story comes alive. The reader is provided a deeper insight into the characters’ motivations. It was painted so well that I understood why each character wanted to participate in a ménage, which is important to me as a reader and what makes a successful story. While the stakes aren’t high, the reader understands the motivations and what’s at cost: their marriage. Can Lisa and Davis fulfill their fantasy successfully without any complications to their relationship? The Present is well written, and I only have two very minor complaints. There’s a little bit of head hopping when Becky enters the story, which made connecting the internal thoughts confusing. And there were times when I could have done with a little less description. Otherwise, a fantastic story about the tremendous love between two individuals and how that passion can be shared with another. Patrick Khayler’s The Present is packed with sybaritic prose that is sure to have any reader fanning themselves throughout the story.I definitely recommend and will be picking up the next two books that follow Becky. I've grown fond of her character and am interested to see where her sexual appetites will take her next!

    The hottest book I have ever readDavis and Lisa are celebrating 10 years marital bliss, its become a tradition to try and out do each other in the present stakes which often of an erotic nature. They have a private Room booked at their favourite restaurant but Lisa is struggling with a gift idea. Their teachers son is moving Away following her divorce and Lisa invites her home while her ex. Clears out his stuff. That's when Lisa remembers a long forgotten conversation with Davis about fantasies, his to watch her with another man and hers to Watch him with another woman and the one In front of her fits all the criteria. What follows is one hot sexy night that none of them or the reader will forget. The detailed narrative takes you on this amazing experience with characters and i really hope to read about Davis' fantasy being realised sometime. I will certainly be reading more of Patrick's work in the future.

    What a gift! This is a book that you will want to unwrap again and again and again. It has so many layers of deliciousness that it will be going on my ‘to read again at least once a year’ list. Patrick Khayler has delivered a passionate journey exploring the love of a husband and wife who still crave each other after so many years of marriage but adds to that the sexual awakening of recently divorced neighbour Becky, who joins the couple to help fulfil some of their deepest desires. He manages to build the tension right from the start gradually revealing the couples fantasies until they reach the pinnacle of their dreams in a once in a lifetime night of lust and loving. It was a joy to read such a beautifully crafted erotic fantasy that grabs you and holds you spellbound right to the very end. I loved the characters, I loved the fantasy and I loved this book! 5 stars of super sexy hotness.

    This is one of the most Erotic,eloquent, arousing well developed and well written books I've read. It was so arousing, sensual with laugh out load moments, down to earth and believable. To feel so safe and to understand the desires of a long term loving relationship such a turn on. My wish is that more men would read this sort of book to have a males view of a female the way Davis does. It is not just the physical that's attractive it's the mental pictures and understanding as well .. I agree with our author at the end being able to attract your audience and hold with the ability to make you apart of the book so that you feel,or even act out scenes is such a wonderful talent.Lisa And Davis are wonderful and I love the teaching part of the book, if only. Makes you wish. Congrats Patrick Khayler .. Very inspiring and I'll be looking for more. Thank you to MrB and the Dungeon with out which I would not have found. #wickedpenwriters.

    What a steamy, well though story!I truly enjoyed this novel, showcasing a deeply-in-love couple celebrating their love and passion for each other. This is a true erotic romance, with each corner filled with sexy scenes pushing the boundaries of passion and arousal more at every turn. More than is there, though, as I thoroughly enjoyed the relationship between husband and wife. It was filled with credible emotions and depth of character, making me care about more than just the sex. This was my first book by this author, but it won't be the last.I highly recommend this book to anyone needing a sexy escape!
