What We May Be Ebook 6

Blurb

What we were…

Sean found love once, with his college roommate, Trevor, and Trevor’s best friend, Charlotte.
The missing piece, Sean made it possible for Trevor and Charlotte to find love too.
But then Sean left and took the love with him.

What we are…

Now an FBI agent, Sean is back in town, ten years later, to investigate a murder.
A case that pits him against his ex-lovers–Charlotte, a local detective, and Trevor, a literature professor sucked into the Shakespearean mystery.
Everyone guards their hearts, but before long, desire sparks anew the feelings that burned hot a decade ago.
That still burn true.

What we may be…

Love is within their grasp again, but as the killer escalates, it’s more than just their hearts and futures on the line.
Sean, Charlotte, and Trevor will need to work together to solve the case.
If they can’t, lives will be lost and pieces of their love gone for good.

What May Be AN - IG

A stunningly clever – and seriously hot – romantic suspense from Layla

58314276._SY475_What We May Be by Layla Reyne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, that was clever. And insanely hot 😁

Second chance romances are so hard to write, there must be a genuine reason why people split up, but one that doesn’t make it impossible to come back from years later.

In this case, it’s 10 years later and the death of two people Sean considered family bring him back to the small town he considered home – and into the orbit of his former lovers, both intimately connected to the cops being buried – and on a collision course which only looks likely to bring more pain.

Throw in a serial killer inspired by the fate of the female characters at the heart of Shakespeare’s Four Tragedies, a pending sorrow at the life’s end of a beloved surrogate parent due to illness, complications with ex-wives, and the everyday minutiae of a small town, and you get the complexity of this book’s narrative.

I absolutely adored all three of the people at the heart of this polycule. Charlie is no weak woman, she’s tough and has got to where she is on her own merits. She’s also grieving the loss of her twin brother and her father, killed when a drugs sting she arranged went wrong.

Trevor, the third of this glorious MMF relationship, is a romantic soul, a professor and a man wiling to bury his hurt to make sure his best friend lives her best life, even if it’s killing them both.

The UST and emotional tension between the three of them flies off the pages. They’re all hunting for a reason why their lives were so fractured a decade ago.

And I was NOT expecting anything even close to the plotline which follows.

OMG so many times I thought I’d hit on who the killer was, only for a side swipe revelation to send my theory crashing.

At no point ever in the story did I guess the actual perpetrator. Not even right up to the page before the reveal!

Did I mention how clever this book was?!

Oh, I mentioned the heat didn’t I, because this is pants melting, equal opportunities loving between three people who know each other inside and out.

They are on fire! The final scene at the end causes a flush hot enough to power a nuclear reactor

🤙👌👈 💥🔥💦🤪💯

I’ve been in love with the interconnected Whiskeyverse Layla has created since the first time FBI Agent Aiden ‘Irish’ Talley walked across the pages of Single Malt and promptly fell for Jameson ‘Whiskey’ Walker.

This book is loosely connected to the ‘Verse through the Fog City series and we get to see Brax’s best mate Army buddy Emmitt Marshall now working for the FBI alongside Sean.

There are a couple of other Easter Egg references that I’m going to leave other people to discover but Marsh is getting his own book and I am so here for that ❤

Layla delivers a poly romance alongside a suspense plot and never has one feel more important than the other.

It’s skilfully written, with wonderful pace and characters that come to life in brilliant detail.

Oh, and epic cover from Wander and Cate 🥰

Relationships are hard enough between two people…can the four of us make it work? Or is love nothing more than a four letter word?

Polyamory…the first time Riot says the word, it feels like everything slots into place. Maybe I’m not greedy for loving both of my best friends at once…

For most of my life, I didn’t think I could ever have the kind of love I’ve been dreaming of, but somehow a sexy bartender with a major sweet tooth is making it all seem possible.

Maybe Riot is right: our capacity for love is bigger than most people let themselves feel. But will Leo and Hudson feel the same? Will they be willing to try to build this beautiful, complicated life with me?

If I can keep them from ripping each other’s heads off that is…

*** This is book two in the Love Logic series and can be read as a stand-alone. This is a MMMM story full of love and heat.

Excerpt

“Bish, hold up,” Hudson says, wrapping his thick fingers around my bicep to pull me to a stop. My heart beats harder at his touch, everything in me insisting I melt into him and give him anything he wants. After all, it’s what I want too.

I swallow hard and turn to face him. “What’s up?” I ask as casually as I can manage.

He steps closer, crowding into my space until all I can feel is the warmth of his body and all I can smell is his spicy whiskey body soap and a hint of the alcohol on his breath. He cups my face, and the move is so familiar at this point I don’t think I could keep myself from leaning into it if I tried.

“Come home with me?” he asks, his voice a low murmur that vibrates through me and strokes my cock awake without any effort.

“I…” My brain is foggy from the booze, but more than that, my body is quickly getting drunk on Hudson’s closeness. If I say yes, I know we’ll have a fun night together. He knows exactly how to touch me, exactly how to make me come so hard I’ll see stars for hours. I sway into him, my cock fully hard just thinking about how Hudson’s bare skin feels against mine. “Have to go home…alone.”

Hudson’s shoulders sag. He strokes his thumb across my cheek without saying a word and I wonder if he’s hoping to change my mind. His hot breath ghosts over my lips a fraction of a second before his mouth is on mine. I brace for a hungry onslaught, steeling myself to refuse him again no matter how good the kiss is. But, to my surprise, his lips move slowly against mine, which is strangely harder to resist than if he shoved his tongue down my throat and started grinding his erection against me. I put my hands on his chest, curling my fingers around the fabric of his shirt and parting my lips to deepen the kiss.

It’s entirely too easy to get lost in the sweet rhythm of his mouth, the familiar taste of his tongue, the comforting feeling of his body against mine.

He breaks the kiss without warning and I drag in a breath in an attempt to get my thoughts back in the right order.

About The Author

KM Neuhold Logo__

K.M.Neuhold is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely- and sometimes damaged- men finding their Happily Ever After together.

She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series.

When she’s not writing she’s a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero…just kidding, she’s likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.
