Jacqs is a twenty-eight year old woman caught up in an on again, off again relationship with Bond, who is her best friend and the one who causes her the most heartache. She succumbs, yet again, to his powerful charisma, but vows not make it into more than it is, a great night of sex.
Bond, too sexy for his own good, wants Jacqs for himself as he “dates” his way through the female population of South Florida. He selfishly doesn’t see the conflict of interest.
Red, Bond’s best friend, has watched Bond take Jacqs for granted for way too long and soon stakes his own claim on her.
Will Red and Jacqs budding relationship pull apart their tight-knit group of friends and will Jacqs survive being Stuck In Between.
Blakely Bennett grew up in Southeast Florida and has been residing in the great Northwest for over eight years. She graduated from Nova Southeastern University with a degree in psychology, which accounts for her particular interest in crafting the personalities, struggles, and motivations of her characters. She is an avid reader of many genres of fiction, but especially erotica and romance. Writing has always been her bliss. She is attracted to stories of self-struggle and ultimate recovery.
Blakely is married to a wonderful, loving and supportive husband, also a writer, who helps to keep her grounded. She is a mother, a communitarian, a lover of music (always on while she is writing—thank you, Pandora), and a good friend. An advocate of love and female empowerment, she is a facilitator for a women’s group. She loves to walk and hike for exercise and finds that, since moving to Seattle, WA, she is now one of those “crazy” people who walk in the rain.
Stuck In Between (erotic romance) is her 5th novel. She is also the author of the dark erotic suspense, My Body Trilogy (My Body-His, My Body-His (Marcello) & My Body-Mine) and co-authored the contemporary romance, The Demarcation of Jack with her husband, Dana Bennett.

Our 3.5 Star Review
Jacqs had been getting screwed around on for 8 years by Bond. He wants her but he wants to screw the rest of the female population in Florida too. Now someone else wants her and brings out emotions only Bond was able to previously, problem is it's Bond's best friend Red. He's pretended to hate her all this time, but he can't do it anymore. He wants her and will do what it takes to have her. Who will Jacqs pick and will the friendships the three have survive?
Jacqs let herself be used time and time again by Bond and even when she finally had someone better who could treat her right she still kept going back to Bond. Bond has a past that keeps him from being able to commit, but he annoyed the tar outta me with the way he treated Jacqs. Red was a perfect Alpha male he treated his girl right and did everything to make her happy. He was by far my favorite.
The steamy hot scenes throughout the book were great, but what I found lacking was the storyline. It seemed like you just didn't get to properly know the characters and their feelings, I found it hard to get into the story because of that. I enjoyed what there was but definitely wish there would've been more.
