Book review - The Unicorn by Delphine Dryden - 4 stars

The Unicorn by Delphine Dryden
BDSM M/f/f menage romance 
4/5 stars 


Delia and Daniel have a picture-perfect life. They like their jobs. They love their house. Everything is coming up roses . . . but in private, they’d rather have the thorns. Their recent forays into kink have brought them closer than ever, but there’s still something missing, and they can’t quite work it out.
Mara knows what she’s missing: a significant other. She tried vanilla, and it was a total bust. But when she and her last girlfriend took things out of the kink club and into the “real” world, they fizzled. Even their friendship is on the rocks now. Mara feels like a lost stray, looking for a forever home.
When the three of them meet up at the brand-new club Escape, their connection is instant. And surprising—none of them were expecting more than a few hot nights. But now they might be ready to bring their kinky threesome into the light of day and build a life together.
Publisher's note: This title is a heavily revised re-issue of a prior story, Roses and Chains, originally released in 2011.

It took me a while to get into this book, it was a bit of a slow starter for me. But I'm glad that I kept going with it because I ended up really enjoying this book. It is a BDSM m/f/f menage romance, a sub-genre that sadly I don't come across very often. I enjoyed the BDSM and sex scenes, especially the interactions between the two heroines - they were scorching hot!! 

Delia and Daniel have a great life, and their journey into the world of kink has brought them closer - but it still feels like there is something missing. Mara really wants to have a meaningful relationship, but vanilla relationships haven't worked out for her and her last kinky relationship fizzled out. When Delia, Daniel and Mara meet at a new BDSM club the chemistry between them is electric. One night together turns into more - but can the three of them really build a life together?

Mara was an intriguing character, she was very complex with many layers to her personality. At first I couldn't quite see how she'd fit into Daniel and Delia's relationship, but she was actually perfect for them. Daniel annoyed me a couple of times, but on the whole I liked all three characters. This was an enjoyable read, and I wouldn't hesitate to read more from this author. Four stars.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
