Oh, Lissa, you tie me in knots…which is a good thing.

The story picks up in what I would call the middle of this three-way relationship. Jared and Bryson have been friends from kids. When Jared comes out to his family, he is shunned. So when he comes of age, he leaves to find his own home, but Bryson is right at his side as a friend and partner. The two buy a ranch and have settled down into a relationship. Both are happy.

When Jared picks up a hitchhiker, Walt, attraction sparks fly between the two of them. Bringing Walt home, Jared sees Bryson also fall under Walt’s spell. Walt has always been a drifter and that was fine with him. But now he finds himself in a ménage with men who are his soul mates and he doesn’t want to leave.

But jealousy raises its ugly head and Jared thinks he is preempting the pain he will feel when Bryson and Walt leave, so he kicks them out. After three months, Jared is still holding out on them, but its his birthday and the other two men aren’t going to let him walk away again. Through some dominance, birthday spankings and not giving up, Walt and Bryson do their best to show Jared they love him and are here to stay.

Each character gets their own point of view in this short story of lust, love and heartbreak. We learn what each character has gone through to get to this point in their lives. The hurt Jared continues to feel from his family who have disowned him. To Bryson who loves Jared beyond measure, but also has his family’s support. And finally Walt, who has wandered looking for his place in the world. The three have some hot and incredible sex scenes that show just how much passion these three have for one another.

But in general…I wanted to bash Jared over the head and tell him he has the world at his fingertips…reach out and grab it dude!

About Lissa Matthews

Living in North Carolina, talented, multi-published author, Lissa Matthews, has many loves in her life: Family, friends, NASCAR, football, music of all kinds, cooking, BDSM, and last, but not least, coffee. She loves it so much she and those who know her are surprised she hasn’t floated away on a caffeine-induced cloud while giving life to feisty heroines and hunky heroes.

Lissa’s love of romance came from every book she has ever picked up. No matter what she read, she fell in love with the written word. The promise of escape, the deep, intriguing characters, and the winding journey from beginning to end, constantly drew her into bookstores and libraries as she was growing up.

Her first stories were written in junior high and she kept it up through college. She would stay up late at night when her kids were little reading romance and still penning her own stories. In 2007, when she and her family moved to North Carolina from Florida, she began pursuing writing as a profession and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else… Well, except maybe writing in her own cupcake bakery/coffee shop. But that dream is a ways down the road… Lucky for Lissa, she believes in dreams coming true.

Lissa is married with two children and seven, yes, seven cats. She blames her oldest child for the cats.

Isn’t it fun in a frustrating way when you get so caught up in the characters that you just want to thump them?

Great review, Shari!
