Lionel and Crow and Tim, oh my!

Can Dorothea Gale escape the clutches of foreclosure by making a deal to have sex with three handsome men?

Dorothea Gale is a victim of a bad economy. After losing her job, Thea asks Tim Woodman, the man of her dreams and the contractor who built her home, to help her sell it. He leads her to the powerful William Ozarak, a voyeur, who offers her a deal – sexual submission for one month in exchange for two years worth of mortgage payments. Can she barter her body to prove ‘there’s no place like home’? Or will she lose her soul in the process?

Tim Woodman, who is in the middle of a divorce, isn’t looking for entanglements. Yet he can’t help be drawn to the sexy Thea. If he helps her will he lose his heart? Or did he even have one to begin with?

Dorothea “Thea” Gale is alone, jobless and fixing to be homeless.  She can’t bear the thought of losing the home she had custom built to foreclosure.  She doesn’t realize what she is getting into when she asks an old friend to help her sale it.

Tim and Thea have crossed paths several times over the past few years but the timing has never been right.  Now Tim is back in her life and in the middle of a divorce but he is willing to do anything he can to help Thea, even introduce her to his biggest competitor.

This isn’t your typical Wizard of Oz story so be warned.   Oz is a steamy, sex filled take on an old classic that contains very little actual romance, aside from Tim and Thea’s story.  Thea agrees to Oz’s proposal to do whatever he requests from her for thirty days in order to save her beloved home.  She is allowed to bring one male with her when she comes and Tim seems to be the natural choice for her because she trusts him.

Thea is surprised when she and Tim are joined by two other sexy guys, Lionel and Crow.  She is not used to “performing” before an audience but Oz prefers to watch, rather than participate.  As the days pass, she becomes more and more aware of her sexuality, even though she is still uncomfortable with what she is doing.  If she can just get through thirty days with Oz, her house payments will be paid for two years.

The story is very sexy and not for the light hearted.  I liked the characters involved, even though the story line is a little weak.  Thea is literally in the hands of three sexy men while Oz watches.  Each of the characters has something they are hiding and throughout the story they are revealed.  I loved the addition of Tim’s ex-wife in the mix, that was perfect and definitely stirred things up.  Tim and Thea have the most to lose with their budding relationship on the line but he finds a way to salvage it and Thea’s house in the end.

Overall I enjoyed this story and will definitely never be able to look at the original the same again.  I give Oz 3½ Flaming Hearts.   3.5 Hearts
