**I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is November 24th 2015**

This is a boxed set of three previously released stories by Foster under the title of Give it Up.  I will be commenting on each individually.  As an FYI, I could not find the previous releases so I am not sure if the names were changed for this set or if my powers of search were lacking.

This was a short novella about two people who are attracted to each other.  By all accounts it should work however for myself it just seemed off balance and I will tell you why (potential spoilers).

1.  The whole situation with Axel and Judith.  I don't care if Booker had no feelings for her.  First it breaks everything in the brother coded.  Second, it is really creepy.  Who wants their siblings left overs??

2.  Booker was way too alpha male when interacting with Frances.  I also found this creepy.  If someone came on this strong to me out of nowhere I think I would be running in the other direction.

If you like your stories hot and heavy then this one will deliver on that front.  Essentially the whole story is getting down to the bedroom scenes.

While this was a fast read it simply wasn't for me.
