Another fantastic menage from Sloane Kennedy

Unexpected (The Protectors, Book 10)Unexpected by Sloane Kennedy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m a bit late to this one as I had a backlog of ARCs to read and review first but I have to say it again, there’s very few authors who can pull off a menage as well as Sloane does imho.

This one’s a doozy featuring as it does one ex President, one Secret Service agent and one member of Ronan’s underground vigilante team.

There’s drama and angsting of the highest calibre but it never reaches too much and the relationship development is given time to breathe.

When they finally do get together well let’s just say I may never look at a couch arm in the same way again. It’s hard to write three men and get the balance right so it feels like they are all equals but this is definitely the case here.

Each man not only brings something different to the table (and gawd that was another epic sex scene), but receives the same from the other two.

Gage and Nash are outwardly strong men, physically capable of protecting Everett but they need him to anchor them together. Each needs the support of the other to accept that what they’re feeling isn’t wrong.

There’s the usual background criminal/villain element to the book too but in this it takes much more of a back burner to the simple growth of the relationship and the mending of broken bridges between Everett and his son Reese.

I loved the setting and the secondary characters, including the dogs and escaping chicken, and it was great getting a little glimpse back to one of my fave couples, Vincent and Nathan.

Now for Caleb’s story which I’m expecting to rip my heart out!

Review Tour: Three Under the Christmas Tree by Silvia Violet

 Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 22,000 words approx
Cover Design: L.C. Chase
 Blurb
 

Ace and Gavin haven’t had a threesome in far too long. When Ace meets the perfect guy to join them, he can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season.

Jonathan is charmed by the sexy couple, and he quickly realizes that what started as a fling has the potential to be a whole lot more.

Gavin feels their connection just as strongly, but even after weeks of the three of them hanging out, he’s afraid to suggest they turn their friends-with-benefits arrangement into a serious relationship.

The joy and shared experiences of the season have a way of making magic happen, if only all three men could find the courage to ask for what they want.

Last Call Cover

COVER DESIGN: Reese Dante

BLURB

Quinn Monahan and Grayson Page have been friends since high school. Despite their differences, they’ve been there for each other through thick and thin. Opening Last Call together, a bar tucked away in the small town of Heartsville, PA seemed a natural progression—even if it makes it harder to live with the secret longing they’ve always had for each other.

Hoping to score an easy buck and a place to sleep, unemployed circus roadie Emery Woods chooses Last Call to run a few bets and enjoy a decent beer before moving on. When he finds himself stranded, the unexpected kindness Quinn and Gray show him leads to temporary work and a couch to lay his head. Sensing unresolved history between Quinn and Gray, he squashes his immediate draw to the men, opting to avoid trouble. But as days turn into weeks, denying the attraction is easier said than done.

When the men finally give in to the simmering sexual tension, it quickly develops into more than a way to pass the lonely nights. And as they begin to lean on each other for emotional support, it becomes nearly impossible to think of one man without the other two. But while Quinn and Gray are afraid to cross the line of friendship between them, Emery fears once they do, he’ll quickly be cast aside. A real family is finally within their grasp, but unless the men can learn to trust each other, they just might miss their hearts’ last call home.

EXCERPT

“Hey. You don’t believe him, right? He doesn’t know the real you.” Gray wrapped his arms around me, pulling me close. Wordlessly I sought his mouth, needing his solid warmth. Electric sparks showered through me when he crushed our lips together, and I slid my hands through his hair, clutching the silky waves between my fingers.

Heat rose between us as he took my face between the palms of his hands and sucked hungrily at my tongue. I molded my body to his, my dick aching and hard. Our breaths mingled, and I licked at the scratchy, tender skin of Gray’s neck, drinking in the tang of his scent. So strong and warm and male.

A hand touched my back and Emery kissed my neck, then sucked my earlobe into his mouth. I could feel the push of his cock, and I became a trembling mass of sensation, each stroke ramping up my desire.

“The truck is still in the driveway, full of liquor.” Emery panted against my ear.

“Fuck the liquor.” Who could think when Emery’s lips trailed hot kisses down my neck?

“I’d rather fuck you.”

Felice Logo

Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. While life is tough, she believes there is a happy ending for everyone. She started reading traditional historical romances as a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn’t until she picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth’s court that her interest in romance novels was renewed.

But somewhere along the way, her reading shifted to stories of men falling in love. Once she picked up her first gay romance, she became so enamored of the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion there was no turning back.

Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. Although she practices law, she daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be some angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Great poly romance not sure about the actual story

The RulesThe Rules by Jamie Fessenden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5*

I’m completely in two minds about this one, the poly side of it I felt was brilliantly handled, how the two expanded to become a three.

But, I’m not sure that I really felt the narrative itself gave enough depth, there’s a lot of words that didn’t actually say much. Boris and Thomas were clearly in love with each other and their relationship was solid. Hans clearly fancied both of them and their attraction to him grew.

The secondary angle with Boris’ family and his historic abuse seemed, however, to come from left field and felt like it was there as a tension causer specifically for the plot rather than reading like an insight into Boris’ character and past.

Still, I did believe the three men fell for each other and issues of jealousy and how to interact between each pair and as a threesome was very well done. The sex became a little similar though as the book went on, which again is probably more realistic than lots of hot monkey sexing!

Overall, it was well written but didn’t perhaps grab me as much as I’d hoped.

Seriously sexy menage from Witt

Out of FocusOut of Focus by L.A. Witt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s not many authors I’ve read who have as deft a hand when it comes to not only making a menage work but adding elements of BDSM into the mix as LA Witt.

This one is deliciously sensual and smoking hot but with a powerful emotional connection too which helps to ground all the sexy times into a real relationship.
