Blurb: When he started looking for someone to help heal his broken heart, Wilson Curtis never dreamed he’d find two someones. Love isn’t always conventional.
After being publicly outed leaves his restaurant business in tatters, and being dumped by his closeted boyfriend, Wilson Curtis goes to Key West alone where he meets Simon and Adam. Fascinated by this couple, he strikes up conversation and is soon invited into their bed for some holiday fun.
But once isn’t enough, and the offer is extended for the remainder of his stay. As they get to know each other, in and out of the bedroom, sparks fly and ten days is all it takes to change their lives.
When it comes time for Wil to leave, with outside tensions closing in and time running out, tempers flare and emotions fray. Beneath the misunderstandings and lack of communication is the realization these three men aren’t ready to say goodbye.
Review: Simon and Adam like to play. Alike as night and day, personality wise, they both do have unconventional ideas about their relationship, and they occasionally like to bring a third into their tightly knit cocoon. But, you only get the invite once; they may like to play, but they are committed to one another and their relationship stays first and solid.
Simon is the serious one, the manager of a hotel in Key West. Adam is the laughing half of the relationship, but he’s the fragile one too, with an abusive past. Adam needs Simon to be the one in charge, and it is a roll Simon loves. Simon is fiercely protective of Adam. Then Wilson Curtis comes to stay at the hotel, and for the first time, a one night deal becomes two, then ten. Wil is from a small town in Alabama, and he has never been open about his sexuality for a reason. Meeting Simon and Adam is just as overwhelming for him as walking down the street holding the hand of man for the first time.
These characters are so well written, they come off the page as real men with real interactions: the way Wil must come to terms with coming out, and not just that but accepting a polyamorous relationship; the way Simon has to relinquish a little control and lean on the two strong men around him; the way Adam becomes the glue that holds all three men together. It will tug at your heart as it gets you hot and bothered because the sex scenes are VERY well written.
“I bucked at the sensation. So powerful, so perfect. Underneath me, on top of me, inside me, inside him. It was a pleasure like I’d never known. So….. complete. There was no other word for it. Complete. Always.”
Be aware this is a rework of a book that came out originally about three years ago. It’s been revised, given it a new cover, and the story has been expanded somewhat from the original. I really liked the expanded parts of the story, as we get to see into the lives of these men a little more clearly, and it makes the book into more of a romance HEA than just a ménage storyline. I would recommend getting the expanded version. This is just one of those books that once you start reading you become invested in these characters and don’t want to put it down until the very end. That N.R. Walker has gone back and given us more of these men and their lives – BONUS!
