~Book Review Tour~ “Poly Amore & Intertwined Hearts” by Desiree Cox

8 - Poly Amore E-Book Cover-2


Desiree A. Cox’s Poly Amore was a unique take on a non-traditional polyamorous relationship.

When Sara first sees Xander at the bar, she’s immediately attracted to him.  He seems to be everything she finds physically attractive in a man.  Hoping to get to know Xander, Sara attends a party where she meets a new friend, Patty.  Patty and Sara immediately hit it off . . . what Sara does not realize at first, however, is that Patty and Xander are a married couple.  While their friendship grows, It’s not until Patty asks Sara to help her decorate a hotel suite for her anniversary that things get heated between first Patty and Sara and later that evening between all three of them, that Sara begins to understand that Patty and Xander practice polyamory and would like her to be the third in their relationship.

Once formally asked to be part of their committed relationship, along with another one of their friend’s Kenny, Sara begins falling in love with all of them.  While Patty is Xander’s wife and true love, Sara becomes his Baby Girl, calling Xander Daddy.  Kenny is also a committed playmate in the relationship.

While this was not a typical romance, I really enjoyed reading and learning about how a polyamorous relationship could work.  Things are not always smooth sailing, as there are multiple people involved, and jealousy and feelings play a part in how everyone functions within the relationship.  I love that the author showed readers both the ups and downs in the relationship as well as shows how much communication and compromise plays a role, just as it does in a more traditional relationship setting.

The characters were well written and had depth.  Sara’s journey into polyamory was interesting to read . . . especially since it was something she wasn’t really looking for.  Watching her grow into the woman she wanted to become while learning how to handle living in a non-traditional relationship in a judgmental society was fascinating.

If you enjoy a non-traditional romance, this is a great read.  Strong characters, steamy scenes and a great plot kept me turning page after page.  4 stars.

Title: Poly Amore & Intertwined Hearts
Author: Desiree Cox
Genre: Erotic Romance
Available on Kindle Unlimited

I call him Daddy, he calls me baby girl. 

I don’t wear a wedding ring, but my heart belongs to him.

We joined souls, for a lifetime commitment, at a private collaring ceremony, not an expensive wedding. Zander’s wife, Patty, was present, and welcomed me into their family.

We don’t consider ourselves to be traditionalists in any sense of the word.

Most people wouldn’t understand our relationship. And, I guess, I wouldn’t expect them to.

My name is Sara. Welcome to my world.



 You met Hunter and Jackie in the Lust, Desire, and Love Trilogy – now read their story!

Fate brought them face-to-face for a wedding between their best friends. A wedding neither was thrilled to be a part of.

When they met and shook hands, their worlds were rocked. Could it be love at first sight? Was there really such a thing?

They both were haunted by past relationships. But Jackie had really deep scars.

And they were opposites in nearly every way.

Was a life together possible?

Neither ever imagined their lives would change as a result of a simple rehearsal dinner.


Desiree was born and raised in Iowa, moved to New Jersey for several years, and now she lives in Delaware. 

She’s been happily married to her high school sweetheart for thirty years. She’s the mother of two sons and a daughter. 

In addition to writing mostly erotic romance, she works full-time as a project manager.

Two of her passions, in addition to family and writing, are traveling and spending time at the beach.
