Janie has moved to New York to try to make it as a writer, all the while serving as part-time lover in a polyamorous relationship with Veronica and TJ and full-time nanny to their daughter, Beth. Janie's life is already incredibly full when she runs into an agent one morning who sees great potential in her - and not just as an author.
As Janie's relationship with Josh blooms and her career takes off, Ronnie's happy surprise turns into a problem that even a vacation in a mountain cabin with the Baumgartners can't fix, throwing everyone's life off-kilter. Janie, especially, is spread thin, trying to please everyone while keeping Josh from finding out the true nature of her relationship with her benefactors. She knows she has to tell him eventually, but fear holds her back. Will she lose him? Will she be forced to make an impossible choice? Or will she, perhaps, find that the capacity for the human heart to love is, indeed, endless?
Warnings: This title contains erotic situations, graphic language, a ménage a trois (MFF threesome), lesbian sex and a hookup turned romance that will curl your toes!

"Terrible pauses hinder terrific erotica"
I'm a bit of a fan of Selena's approach to erotica, which is fun, sexy, and head and shoulders above other self-published works. And among her stories, her best might be the Baumgartner stories.
Holly Hackett's voice seems custom-made for this book, but for whatever reason there are these awkward pauses right in the middle of sentences that feel like speed bumps and knock me right out of the story for that brief second. It might not be so bad if it was an isolated thing, but it happens frequently through the course of the audiobook and fairly ruined the overall listening experience.
There is a bit of the old "that's awfully convenient" with how the story kind of plays out, but it's hardly anything to shake your head at, and the whole New York literary vibe had a nice fantasyland feel to it.
"Janie and Josh"
The Baumgartners are classic - and Babysitting the Baumgartners will always be my favorite - but Janie and Josh have to be my second favorite couple. This was a great read, hot Selena Kitt as always, with a whole lot of chemistry between Janie and Josh. Loved it!
