When I see Roni Loren’s name on a book, you know I am going to read it. When it’s part of the Loving on the Edge series, I gobble it up. Throw in it is a follow up to characters we have met before and I was all over it! This is a novella. Short, sweet, sexy and sentimental. You meet Evan, Jace and Andre in Melt Into You. Three unlikely lovers, learning to love both inside and outside of the bedroom.
The three are in love, busy and living together in an open menage. While everything is wonderful, there are secrets and work schedules pulling them all in different directions. One gave up his dreams of a family wedding. Another is working to keep from depression that consumes her. The last realizes these stresses and plans for a getaway to reconnect. Basically life is reminding them of their dreams, what they have found and what they had to give up.
Andre reconnects with his ex-fiance at a wedding he is helping Evan photograph. He tries to avoid her even introducing her to Evan, but she thinks his love of two people is a passing fancy and keeps hounding him. That’s when he starts to examine what he longed for most of his life. While he doesn’t regret giving up the white wedding, picket fence and kids, he does still feel a longing.
Jace is working herself hard. Dealing with depression, she keeps herself busy so she doesn’t fall victim to it again. I don’t want to portray her as someone who dodges depression often, its’s just something she is aware of. Her business is a success and she works hours daily. When she starts to feel sick, she thinks its food poisoning until she hears about a problem with the birth control batch she is taking.
Jace sees the stress on his lovers faces. He feels he is losing them and knows he has to give them time together to love, talk and reconnect. Jace puts on his Dommy pants and plans a getaway for them that involves kidnapping Evan once again.
This was a beautiful story of reconnection, figuring out the future and moving on with life. It’s all fun to watch a couple fall in love or even a trio fall in love. But the problems don’t end on the last page. Life keeps coming back to grab them. I loved getting to see them growing. The growing pains are crucial to the growth of their relationship.
This is a lighter BDSM romance. Two Doms, two subs, M/M, M/F, and M/F/M. Oh, Doms are Jace and Andre to Evan’s sub. But then Jace is a Dom to Andre’s sub. It is a wonderful relationship built on trust, hope, love and honesty. The kidnapping them is universal to their story, but it is light hearted and done the right way.
I recommend this to fans of the Loving on Edge series. Others will get confused as this is a continuation of Melt Into You. And yes, you will swoon for the Epilogue. It rocked!
