    1. Ducking Ugly by Stasia Black a five -star read I would happily duck. This is the second book in the Stud Ranch series, I enjoyed the first book in the series but I freaking loved this one, it’s so hot it will melt your fingers. It won’t be for everyone as there is some M/F/M, M/M/F, M/M and M/F scenes and some alluded to that will break your heart, but they are done well and suit the story and the plot. Mack and Liam were enemies the minute they met total opposite one rich boy running away f [...]

    2. I absolutely LOVED this story!! 5⭐️!!When you first start reading and meet the characters Calla, Liam and Mack, you automatically pick out the ‘ugly duckling’. I loved how Stasia gives us a good look at each of their backgrounds and why they are on Xavier & Mel’s ranch. Calla, Liam and Mack each bring an certain aspect to their unique relationship. If one is missing it just doesn’t feel the same. Mack has demons that make him pull away from the others whenever he feels any kind o [...]

    3. Awesome book. Extremely entertaining, captivating, and interesting read. I could not put it down. Wonderfully written with strong characters. I want to read more from this author. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    4. This was the best Menage story every written!!! Liam Mack and Calla shared so much in this story; the synchronicity of it will take your heart and soul to flight. If I didn't know or was aware this was a book; I would swear this was a real life Menage. You will cry. You will laugh. You will FEEL their love and togetherness.The most epic tale ever told.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    5. Having read the first book in the series, I know I was in for a good moment.Ducking Ugly was far different from Hunter.It is a standalone which can be read without knowing the previous story.Be warned it contains MFM, MMF and MM sex scenes, but they are part of the protagonists story.I’m not a fan about menage romance, they are often very similar, dominant alphas with submissive woman, even if I have read some good books in the past.Here, we are on the good side of this kind of romance. It is [...]

    6. Remarkable love heals deep woundsMy thanks to author Stasia Black for the ARC of this book, and the opinion voluntarily expressed is my own. I loved this book! Originally the Ugly Duckling was a fable in which an orphaned swan, raised by ducks, is ostracized for his differences until he meets some was, who show him that he has always been beautiful - the ignorant and biased ducks who raised him simply failed to see who he really was. Ducking Ugly is a different take on the old fable, featuring t [...]

    8. I read this book as part of an arc program. I loved this story! this was the story of Calla, Mack and Liam. Calla was going to start work at the ranch after her father sold their family's ranch to help pay for his health care needs. Calla had given everything to the ranch and when her father sold, she was left homeless and after years of trying to keep it running basically on her own, she had no other family or friends to help her through this time. Mack was working at the ranch as a ranch hand [...]

    9. For a long time it has been just Calla and her dad, fighting to keep his farm, until it was out of their hands. It was time for her father to go into the nursing home and selling up meant their would be money to pay for it. For so long she had worked harder than any woman should, now it was out of her hands. A new beginning working on a nearby ranch, but more alone than ever. Liam left his billions behind and vowed to leave the rich playboy behind, to be a better man. Mac, tortured and damaged, [...]

    10. Liam, Mack and Calla are all facing their demons while working the ranch. Mack is an ex-con trying to move on with his life but is still struggling with his past.

Liam and Mack are both attracted to Calla but Mack is the one to make the first move. Jealous Liam starts a fight with Mack that gets them on kitchen d [...]

    11. Love, hope, and suspenseThis is the first book I have read by Stasia Black, and I was not disappointed. I won’t rehash the story as it has been well described. The author did a wonderful job bringing us Calla, Mack and Liam by taking a look at their lives as they intricately weave together. Liam is wealthy, but a little unsure if people accept him as the man and not the money. Mack is an ex-con who struggles with his demons, and Calla is overwhelmed by the possibility of inheriting the family [...]

    12. Reading this made me feel like I was coming back home to friends. I loved seeing more of Mel and Xavier as a background story in the book. This is so much hotter than the other two Stud Ranch books and the chemistry between Calla, Liam and Mack is more than off the charts, it is in outer space. What is great is that Stasia Black is not afraid to show the sexual relationship between Liam and Mack which I must say was totally hot because the story is really about how the three of them ARE the rela [...]

    13. What an absolutely fantastic story with fantastic characters! Their is Liam, the Irish son of a billionaire, Mack and ex con and Calla, a Wyoming cowgirl. Calla and Liam meet one evening at a bar, well actually outside the ladies room at a bar. When Liam exits the room, he mistakes Calla for a man and tells her the men's room is over there. Humiliating for Calla until the next time they meet when Calla's friend fancies her up. Mack moves in and Liam follows soon after. There is enough testostero [...]

    14.

He finds the man responsible and beats him with a baseball bat. Of course, this gets him eight years in prison.

    17. Wow what a ride! Ms Black does it again with another dark yet satisfying story. I've read quite a few menage books and I have to say this one's got to be my favorite. Most menage books seem more like porn then they seem like a good read, and usually are too cheesy and predictable for my taste. Not Ducking Ugly. I stayed up way too late / early in the morning reading most of it the first night. If I didn't have to work the next day I would have continued reading on in through the day it was that [...]

    18. When I got the chance to read the ARC of this book I figured I'd read the first book "Hunter" before I started it. I was very meh on "Hunter" and almost regretted getting this one. Luckily I didn't let that stop me from reading "Ducking Ugly" and I'm really glad I read this one. The characters were interesting and I was fascinated by their back stories. I loved them as a triple and as singles, and even when trouble came calling and their individual demons tried to pull them apart I knew they wou [...]

    19. Live Each Day as if it is Your Last! I just love Stasia Black’s reads. They are real, intriguing, interesting, dark romance to the core. One of my favourite authors. Calla, Mack and Liam were all damaged and had major issues but together as a ménage they were perfect for each other. The evil Bone who Mack met whilst in prison, killed Ben his cell mate and all Mack could think about now out of prison was revenge. This story blew me away with its twist and turns and darkness, but it was oh so g [...]

    20. This was fantastic every word of these strong willed complex characters. Each have their own demons that haunt them never really being accepted by anyone and still fight the attraction they have for each other and it is utterly the most beautiful emotional feeling that you get with every word that comes. Mack, Liam and Calla come from different worlds and not all good but that draws them even closer craving each other just to fit in some where. This was so good the story line and these character [...]

    21. Wow this is no fairy tale, this is one very hot awesome read!! There are so many words I could use to descripte this book - Sexy, thrilling, erotic, intriguing, dirty, dark, gritty, loving!!! I think you get the idea!!At its heart it is a sweet love story about lost souls finally finding their safe place!!!A great addition to the stud ranch series!!! I have read and loved the prequel and the 1st book in the series and its great to get to know each of the characters. Im looking forward to learnin [...]

    22. MFM/MMFI was not expecting this but I really liked this book. its realistic and the way it shows everyone's thought process and having two alphas bend just cant get over how well done this plot was written. I wasn't really sure about this story at first so I read a sample but I'm glad I gave it a shot. One clicked and was very pleased with the rest of the book. twist, drama, sensuality, realism, each character having their own completely different issues as well as figuring out what was going on [...]

    23. Talk about sinfully hot! This is a fantastic story of three unlikely people who end up working on the same ranch. Liam and Mack can't stand each other, and in walks in Calla. The tension is high and so is the attraction. Calla is attracted to both men, and they decide to put aside their hatred for each other in order for Calla to have an amazing first experience. It goes so well that the guys end up having a thing for each other! Throw in some dangerous past issues and this makes for one sexy, s [...]

    24. This was a really great book !! Max, Liam & Cal sizzle in this book. I loved getting to know more about each of them. I wondered if Max and Laim would also be together and I loved the answer. Max past was just horrendous. Stasia Black was just cruel to poor Max. I wanted to help heal him and Liam both. Liam suffers from never being wanted for himself and not his money. We get the answer to why Max and Laim hate each other. Cal has had such a hard, lonely life. They all come together to form [...]

    25. LIam, Mack and Calla all have had problems in their past but when they come together they find their place in life.This book isn't for the faint of heart you not only have MMF but also MM parts of the book. This book has a lot of depth you really get to know the characters the fact that it is written in POV of all three characters helps with this. This is definitely a book that is a great read and I would highly recommendI was given an ARC copy of this book but this is a true and honest review

    26. Ducking Ugly by Stasi Black is the second book in the Stud Ranch Series. However, it can be read as a standalone. I love this series. I'm not sure how this book didn't melt my kindle. Stasia Black is the master of steamy, hot romance. This story isn't for everyone. It does contain MFM, MMF and MF and MM situations. Mack and Liam have been at odds since they met. When Calla shows up at the ranch their world's start to spin out of control. In true Stasia fashion this story will break your heart, m [...]

    27. Tomboy Calla lost her family's farm due to her father's ill health and refusal to listen to his daughter's advice. She's forced to gain a job at the same ranch where ex-con Mack and and playboy Liam are hiding from their own troubles. The two men don't mesh well together until Calla arrives and becomes their prize to be won and shared. All three have significant obstacles that threaten to kill their HEA. It's a solid read with steamy sex that has MM/MF/MFM scenes.I received a free copy of this b [...]

    28. The writing is excellent in this book and the story is really good. I am not familiar with this series so all the characters were brand new to me. I loved Liam and Mack but not so much Calla. This took away from the story just a bit but it is probably just an issue for me. I will let you know there are some scenes that may cross the line of some people and push their buttons such as violence and prison rape. If these things don’t bother you I definitely recommend this book.I received a free co [...]
