My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I first started reading this series, I really wasn’t sure where the story was supposed to be going. Book one was a bit mixed up with a “not quite menage” feeling that meant I hadn’t a sense of the narrative.
But, I have to say, Nora Phoenix has book on book improved the relationship development between the four main characters and also managed to skilfully introduce five more diverse men into this narrative.
This was probably my favourite of the lot as the secondary plot of Indy’s gangland ex still hunting him was concluded in book three – to my immense satisfaction with a wonderful take down scene.
So here the tone throughout is way more chilled and the story can focus on laying down the firm ties of friendship between all seven men living in the main house.
I loved Miles when he appeared as Indy’s FBI handler man in book three and in this one the reader gets a deeper glimpse into his life with an unusual and embarrassing sexual condition.
Thankfully for him, Blake’s brother Brad (who we met also in book three), is an absolute perfect match with his deep seated desire to please and to be used by a daddy in the best possible way.
The menage in this is extremely well crafted, Charlie has been in love with Brad since he rescued him from two bullies who were going to stick him in the dumpster at school. Brad is older than Charlie but their dynamic has always been equal.
Once these three meet, the slow build up from just meeting each other’s sexual needs into a fully loving relationship was excellent.
This series surprised me in the end and there’s not many that can do that these days.
