My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was an interesting and fun ménage romance set on an island resort.
Although the narrative felt a bit jerky at times, overall the storyline itself felt like it progressed at a great pace and with accurate reflections of the feelings of each of the three men involved.
I liked the dynamics between Mal and Griff as a pair, and then the way they expanded their behaviour to bring Jake in also worked well. I never felt a sense of third wheel or just a bit on the side from them.
There’s also great communication throughout the book, thankfully no silly dramady from misunderstandings or lack of conversation, I also appreciated that the major plot points were more related to outside effects or pressures and weren’t just relationship mess-ups.
It’s ridiculously steamy too, at times perhaps a bit too much, but there are also some great conversations and just couple/throuple time where they’re connecting in other ways outside of sex.
The surrounding cast of characters are really well drawn out, as is the setting, it felt like a solid, real place that you could sense the family feeling of those involved in the business and I adored Jake’s Uncle Frank and his cousin Gabe.
Speaking of, he’s the subject of the next installment, although I believe that may be a newsletter serial rather than a book (would need to confirm that) and I’m looking forward to seeing how Ana makes that potential threesome different to this one.
