"A sexy romp into every woman's fantasy"

To sex up her book and gain financial security for herself and her three children, Aimee decides she needed a crash course in sex, as she's a virgin. She seeks the help of Executive Decisions to provide her with a man or two who would initiate her into the act.

Darius Faeman has an uncanny knack of matching people for true love. With Aimee, however, though he matches her with his best friend Yusuf Abudallah, he has a strange feeling that he's missing something, a feeling that Yusuf agrees with. Will the two men realize what it is before the contracted weekend is over?

Research Only is a short, fun romp in the bedsheets, though here, we are given a nice backdrop of an island in the South Pacific.

For the past ten years or so, Aimee has unselfishly given of herself to take care of an ailing mother and brother, and her three nephews and nieces, but with Darius and Yusuf, she discovers that she's just a woman with needs that they can satisfy, but first, she has to get over her insecurities and try to see herself through their eyes. Aimee's growth throughout the story is interesting to watch, especially when she gains confidence from the knowledge that two very attractive men wanted her.

As for Darius and Yusuf, I didn't see it coming. From the blurb, I know it's going to be a threesome, but I didn't expect the m/m combination, and nothing in the two men's interaction led me to believe otherwise. Hence, I find it hard to believe that the two men could be friends for so long (twenty years or so) without feeling even a spark, would suddenly have the hots for each other. Especially Yusuf, who I believe has ever only been with women.

That said, I enjoyed the story and the sizzling chemistry between the characters. This is book 4 in the Executive Decisions series, and it is not necessary to have read the previous books in order to enjoy this one.

Aimee has a promising career ahead of her as a science fiction author. Her editor thinks she'd make an even bigger sensation if she sexed her work up a bit. There's only one small problem. Aimee's a virgin.

Darius, owner of Executive Decisions, is completely out of his element when trying to match Aimee with an escort. Not just any man will do, and he wants to make sure he gets it right. The only person he truly trusts with the delicate flower is his best friend and business partner Yusuf Abudallah. Yusuf agrees, but he has reservations. Not about Aimee, but about Darius.

It seems the untouchable Darius Faeman has met his match. But will he realize it before it's too late?
