Author D.V. Hent explores the lives of Laela Booker and her fiancée Quinton James in If You Don’t Tell. With less than six months to go until their nuptials the couple should be happily racing towards marital bliss, however unresolved sexual urges might prevent them from jumping the broom. Laela’s been having erotic dreams about sleeping with a woman. Sharing her newfound fantasy with Quinton is easy especially when he suggests that they engage in a ménage before the wedding so Laela won’t have missed out on any experiences before their life of monogamy.
Quinton only has one stipulation and that is that the woman they utilize for their tryst be single. Which wouldn’t be a problem if not for Laela’s married friend Teniyah campaigning to be the third party. Quinton finds Teniyah attractive but is steadfast in his resolve about marriages being sacred and wouldn’t dare become a party to Teniyah’s adultery. But the pressure that Teniyah is applying to Laela to get inside of their bedroom is just a thinly veiled excuse to get inside of Laela’s panties. Teniyah not only feels that she’s the perfect candidate she also feels that her and Laela should hook up first without Quinton to avoid any awkwardness on the big day. Once Laela decides to take Teniyah up on her preview offer things quickly begin to spiral out of control.
Quinton and Laela’s friends Andre and Simone play significant roles in the novel. Andre is the typical woman chasing buddy who is relentless in filling Quinton’s head with the negative aspects of marriage. While Simone is married to Michael a man that neither loves nor respects her. Simone has a hard time dealing with her marriage’s faults and is in no position to advise Laela not to mention the fact that she abhors Teniyah and would definitely dissuade Laela against sleeping with her. Author Hent does a great job successfully documenting each character’s struggle while adding just enough drama and eroticism to keep readers intrigued. My only hope is that in the next installment all of the characters get to suffer the consequences of their actions and not just the two who were left devastated in this installment.
