#Review – No Simple Sacrifice by Angel Payne and Victoria Blue @AngelPayneWrtr @MissVictoriaBlu


Handsome young business man looking down to his ring while holding one hand in his pocket.


If I could turn back time…

You know what they say about wishing for the impossible.

My name is Talia Perizkova, and time is usually my best friend. It’s been good to me in the months since I left the man who nearly killed me, and I’ve returned the favor by working hard at Stone Global Corp, even getting promoted to lead one of SGC’s key expansion projects.

There’s only one mar on that record. The night I told time to kiss my ass, during a business trip to Vegas with my bosses–yes, my bosses–and experienced a night for the record books with them both. But what happened in the City of Sin refuses to stay there for any of us, and time has joined forces with his pal, karma, to exact payback where it most matters. In my heart.

Fletcher Ford. Drake Newland. They’re two of the business world’s sexiest, most sought-after bachelors, and I’ve fallen for them both. Their passion is everything I crave, their protection is everything I need–and their love is everything my orthodox family will never let me accept.

The solution, according to them, is simple. One man steps down, so at least two of us are happy.

I could find a way…

But sacrifices are rarely simple, and one plus one doesn’t always equal happily-ever-after. That means all three of us have some huge, hard decisions to make. Take a chance on this rare love we’ve been given…or give in to fear, and lose each other forever?

angies review

I received this book for an honest review.

OMG!!  HAWT HAWT HAWT!!  I am a giant fan of this series and these authors.  I loved Kil and Claire’s stories but have loved the additional side characters stories as well.  When we got a glimpse of these three in then Vegas Anthology, I was fanning myself!!  WOWZERS and yummy!!

Drake, Tolly and Fletcher are a combustible MFM trio.  Drake and Fletchers are “brothers from another mother” and they both meet and set their sights on Natalia AKA Tolly.  She is the perfect woman for them.  We see how they “get together” in the Vegas anthology but now it has a couple weeks after the fact and Tolly is freaking out.  I mean these guys are EVERY WOMAN’S DREAM so why would they want her??  Plain and simple frump girl?   I loved how they went to force a confrontation out of Tolly…I was cracking up.  These guys were soooo outta place and super uncomfortable but the will endure anything for their future and that is what Tolly is…their future!!

Tolly loves these guys but her family is not having it.  Her insecurities will not let her be happy and then neither will their other one night stands…they remind Tolly of what she isn’t and what they are…BEAUTIFUL, ELEGANT and PERFECT.  Hey thanks Tolly’s ex Gavin for the mind games!   You’re a peach!!

When the trio finally gives it a 110% all in, someone steps forward to shatter the HEA for the group.  The remaining 2 are left lost and confused.  Will they ever get back to the happy they had or was it all an illusion?

I wanted to kick Tolly’s butt in the beginning because she was soooooooooo unsure of herself but then when I saw her growth from the love of her men …at the gala…. yeah that showdown was awesome but the final show down at the end of the book had my heart so happy.

I loved the guys and just like Tolly I loved them both for different reasons.  They both bring love and warmth to her but they also provided her with some much more.

A bit about me…

I’ve been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances–the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed–though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets…backstage passes…that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.

These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.
