There are some sexy times in this book, but the story really didn’t engage me. What’s not to like about two men falling all over themselves to pleasure you? Well, that wasn’t the real problem I guess.  The characters don’t set out to be in a menage relationship, but seem to easily fall into in some ways and not so much in others. Throw in large time gaps that leave you hanging on what is happening.

Finding your man banging another lady isn’t a good way to keep Angela Kenzie. Angela quits her job as a lawyer, and moves back home with her mother, ready to start life over and become the hometown local lawyer. Mending her broken heart, she is attacked by memories of her college boyfriend, now the town Sheriff, Jake. Oh and let’s not forget her high school boyfriend that ending things with her so she could go achieve her dreams, Hunter, who is now the local college basketball coach.

The two men haven’t forgotten just how wonderful Angela is, but neither are willing to give up their hope of winning her heart again. They agree to give Angie a break of 3 months before all bets are off. She’s offended when she finds out, but neither man is going to let her keep her anger when hey both want to win her. While she dates each, she finally decides she wants both and isn’t going to settle.

So begins the two men becoming sort of friends, but still not forgetting they want forever with her. She gets two men making her pleasure their top goal.

And that is where it all fell short for me. I just wasn’t feeling the two guys. I mean they weren’t into each other. That’s fine, but they are jealous a lot. Natural, but it felt wrong all around. They don’t come to terms easily, but it never felt right as they tried to work it out. They all felt it was temporary until it wasn’t and then a aha moment towards the end to figure out if it could really work out.

It just wasn’t fun, sexy or interesting for most of the story. I just felt uncomfortable with each of them. And that is what led me to not like most of the story. Angie’s experiences make her want more and I supported that. The men each seemed to know right away they wanted her for the long term, which seemed off since they both hadn’t been around her for years. Hunter living in his father’s house he bought, while Jake lives above a bakery he rented with his ex-wife. Angela lives at home. So they rent hotel rooms out of town until they decide to meet at Hunter’s house.

Jake make things exciting with his handcuff’s, while Hunter mostly bored me. I just didn’t like the characters. I didn’t detest them either. They just left me wanting to find a new story. So unfortunately, I can only give this 3 stars because it is well written, just not a story I enjoyed.

Yeah, a threesome isn’t gonna work if some of the parties involved are getting jealous of the others. I can see where that would make for a problem.

They get over some of the jealousy but it just didn’t feel right overall.

It is hard when you don’t connect.

Yep, I wanted to like this one, but it lacked something. Humor was off, the steam factor felt uncomfortable and I just never connected.
