Jo hasn't had the easiest life – far from it. There are only two people she trusts: Brian and Matt. Best friends for eight years, they enabled her to face her abuser, her worries and her fears. Both are gorgeous, and any girl would be lucky to have either of them. Little chance of that, though, for Brian and Matt are long term partners.

Brian and Matt are as in love and as committed as any two people can be. Yet they know something is missing. Since first meeting Jo, they have known she is the one who will complete their relationship – but how to convince her of this?

I love a m̩nage, and I love M/M erotic romance. Yet, few are so well written as Anne Douglas' Persuading Jo. One of the best features of this book is that Jo is not only a fling. She is to be an intricate part of the relationship, which can only be considered a plus. Persuading Jo is a scorching tale that is sure to get your blood pumping, and bring your temperature to boiling. Sex is described in graphic detail and occurs in many forms Рanal, oral, even double penetration. If you are in the midst of a heat wave, you'll need to double up on ice baths, rotating fans and water sprays. Even then, you'll need to start stripping - maybe only your toys have the ability to lower your temperature! Persuading Jo is a fabulous tale with excellently developed characters, which will grip you to the very end. The relationship between the characters is very close and described so well that it seems tangible. I am looking forward to more of the series, and much more from debut author Ms. Douglas. Now I'm off to go find out how long I have to wait Рand since Persuading Jo is so well written with brilliant characters and fabulously detailed sex scenes, I am praying that I don't have to wait too long!

This was my first time reading material written by Anne Douglas’ and man did she provide great entertainment. The McCabes 1: Persuading Jo had despicable relatives that made life a living hell for Jo. On one hand, that was not so good for the lead character’s mental stability. On the other hand, I really got off on watching the drama unfold. Although Jo had been through a lot in her short life, she had the gumption to move past her tribulations and remain a good person. The fact that her character was not jaded beyond redemption was appealing to me. It could not have hurt to have Brian and Matt ready to defend her at any given moment. They represented the classic romantic hero, except there were two of them. Yummy was the word that came to my mind while reading. They were not all muscle and talk. Each of them was determined to protect and care for Jo at all cost. Overall, I liked everything about The McCabes 1: Persuading Jo. The sex was indulgent and hot as the ninth circle of hell. The characters appealed to me on so many levels, I cannot begin to list them. They were plain fabulous. Not to mention the story had a beginning, middle and end, and I could not find a grammatical error in any of them. Ms. Douglas rocks. I cannot wait for her next story.
