The Open Door 
A Found Duet novella

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laurelin Paige comes a new story in her Found Duet series…

I knew JC was trouble the minute I laid eyes on him. 

Breaking every rule in my club. I never forget how he made me feel that night. With all the women in that room, all those bodies on display, but his eyes were only on me. 

Of course I married him. Now years have passed. Kids have been born. We’re still in love as always, and the sex is still fantastic… 

And yet, it’s also not. Like many who’ve been married for a while, I long for the high intensity of those days of the past. 

I’ve heard rumors for years about the Open Door. An ultra-exclusive voyeur’s paradise. A place to participate in—or watch—any kind of display you can imagine. 

My husband’s eyes would still be on me. And maybe other eyes too. If that’s what we want. 

So when an invitation to come play arrives, how could we turn it down?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

The Open Door cover




The Open Door is a perfect example of a 1001 Dark Nights book–it absolutely stands on its own, but it also offers a little extra to those who have read other books in the series or even just by Laurelin Paige (Trish and Nate from Dirty Filthy Fix make an appearance; woot!) If you haven’t read other books in The Found Duet, no worries–this is a self-contained story about a couple trying to reaffirm their commitment to each other through exploration–but there’s teasers galore about the stories before (what do you mean he ghosted her before their wedding?)

The Open Door gives us a glimpse into the lives of Gwen and JC as a couple–the less-than-glamorous (but incredibly endearing) life they share with their three boys and their private lives in the bedroom (and the car, the playroom, and the Open Door…) Once again I’m amazed that a 1001 Dark Nights story managed to pack so much story into such a compact space: this isn’t just a steamy erotic romance, it’s also a very sweet story about a couple learning how to communicate their wants and needs to each other more effectively to strengthen their bond.

Plus, it’s really, really hot. Let’s not lose track of that. 😉

Rating: 4 stars / A-

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I had always liked my boundaries pushed

About the author:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
