Adam and Keith like playing games in the bedroom — and in the hot tub and in the elevator and backstage at a concert — and they really like inviting other people to play with them. But when they both get a little more attached to Sebastian than they intended to, the rules of the game change.

Sebastian is just a journalism major trying to take control of his life when his pl

If you enjoy smutty sex a daddy scene and open relationships this is the book for you! Up until the last quarter of the book this was all about sex and more sex in every which way possible (view spoiler)

Keith and Adam's history together was touched on very briefly throughout the book although near the end we get more details on how and why Keith is so emotionally unstable and needy. He suffers from a psychological illness and

Warning!!!! Anyone that might have risks of passing out, or getting heart palpitations from reading about incredibly hot men having incredibly hot sex, then make sure to keep that 911 speed dial handy or at least one of those brown paper bags that people when they are hyperventilating close by, because this sex, to borrow from the Kings of Leon, IS ON FIRE. Soooo friggin HOT, like "Holy shit was I just reading this and panting?!" HOT! Just be Warned. Not that you shouldn't read it! The

This is my first book from this author, so I didn't have the ghost of Paper Planes hanging over my head. I felt in the mood for a sizzling three-way and I got that (Gosh, these guys were horny!) and then some. I also got a fascinating look at the downward spiral of an untreated bipolar disorder in Keith, at Adam trying to deal with living and loving someone with this condition the best way he knew how and at Baz being thrown into the limelight while trying to sort out his feelings and uncertaint ...more

This is second time round for me and I have to say a long time since I first read it so even though I remembered the gist I had forgotten a lot. What I did remember was how HAWT the sex was and there's plenty of it! Sometimes when a book is overloaded with too much it gets repetitive and - dare I say it- boring, and that might be the case for some people with these three as there's a couple of kinky scenes, a ' daddy' one and a double penetration. Plus Keith and Adam have an open relat

When a menage story is written well, I am as happy as a pig in slop. There is something amazing about three people together in love and so in sync with each other that they are perfect compliments to one another. I mean think about how hard it is to be with just one other person, let alone 2! Add in the fact that books such as Lovegames are about three men together, it is fascinating to see to see it play out.



As there is so much that goes into a threesome, it is hard to pull off in a story. Two

I liked the story, and the characters, and there was enough smoking hot sex to make a girl blush very deeply when reading some of these scenes in public, but I have to admit that I was never completely comfortable with the relationship between these three men.

Basically, at the beginning of the book, Baz gets picked up by an established couple (Keith and Adam) for a one-stand stand of epically sexy times. But to everyone's surprise, what starts as a casual romp in the sack turns out to be a litt

I very much enjoyed this book. It is my second Aedin (the first was Paper Planes) and I'm beginning to think I could make her a regular go-to author. Her writing is solid, her characters are three-dimensional and they behave in ways that make them very human and believable to me. I also think she is quite good at weaving story elements together.

I nearly didn't read this because the reviews to date warned me off. I'm glad I took a chance. Because with absolute respect to other reviewers, I felt a

Maybe my expectations were just too high this time around. 'Paper Planes' was so well done for me. Everything just worked and I was crazy about the MC's. I felt like the first story focused as much or more on the emotional part of the relationship development as it did the physical. Not this time...this time it was the physical that was front and centre and in some ways I understood that, it was a different type of relationship so it developed in a different way. The dynamics were very different ...more

Not what I was expecting, which is a good thing...and also glad that i waited a while to read this after Paper Planes, since it is really more a stand alone.

A little thick on the sex, but that's what the story is about anyway so I get it. Would have liked to have seen Keith give his manager the boot, but oh well. Adam was my favorite and Baz was cute. Not a HEA by any stretch but a definite HFN.

I liked all three men. Easily bought the "rock star" and "movie star" mentality in Keith and Adam, and while Sebastian was a bit star struck he wasn't a pushover. He held his own and a mutual respect was established from the very beginning and grew as the story progressed. All very PC, but not annoyingly so.

Lovegames emphasizes the characters involved more so than the nature of a poly relationship. There are extenuating circumstances that obviously take precedence over any notion of just rolling

This one didn't have the same sweet romantic buildup as the author's other works. Perhaps it was the threesome, or perhaps it was just the nature of the story, but I didn't care for this piece as much. A little too much sex and too little story for me.

This review was originally published on my blog Joyfully Jay.

Lovegames is the followup to M. Jules Aedin's wonderful Paper Planes. It features two secondary characters from that book, rocker Keith Black and actor Adam Cruce. The couple connect with another very minor character from Paper Planes, the adorable, sparkly twink we meet at the end of the book.

The story opens around when Paper Planes ends, at a Pride concert where Keith's band is performing. Keith accidentally bumps into Sebastian Kean

I pretty much loved this book. I loved the characters. I loved every scene. Even though there is a LOT of sex in this book (a lot. Like, really a lot, guys.), it doesn't feel at all porny or smutty because every sex scene progresses these relationships. There's a really hot scene with Adam and Keith in a hotel room in Vegas, and it's all yummy and full of daddy kink, and at the same time really tells you a lot about who Keith is and what their relationship is about. It's a pretty perfect scene. ...more

This was one of the most fun and yummiest things I've ever read.

I'm in love with Keith and Adam, and Baz a.k.a. Kitten was a wonderful addition to their relationship. They all had fantastic chemistry and the s.e.x. was off the charts hot. Phew.

Most of all, I adored the characters, all three, and that almost never happens.

Sure, I'm still a little Keith biased but I really loved them all.

It's just one of those rarer stories where I actually wanted more of their sexy scenes, despite there being q

This was a sweet and hot ménage story. I loved Baz, Keith and Adam together - in bed and out of it. Though a lot of the time I felt like there was an underdog; there was just too much going on with each character individually and with Adam and Keith as a couple that none of the men were open about, and that led to one of them always feeling insecure.

But what do I know how threesomes work? So...

I would have liked the relationship to have gotten a bit further by the time the story ended, for their

This menage story is heavy on hot sex but the relationship between the three men just didn't totally work for me. The ending was also a bit of a let down for me. I thought I'd enjoy this one much more than I really did. Too bad.

Why I read it: After reading the wonderful Paper Planes, I was keen to try and repeat the experience with the next book in this (extremely loosely linked) series.

What it's about: Rockstar Keith Black and actor Adam Cruce are lovers who invite a third occasionally for a bit of fun. Their respective careers keep them apart and their arrangement is that they can have sex with other people, just be safe. Part of the arrangement comes out of Keith's bipolar disorder (disclaimer- I accepted that this

This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there.


LOVEGAMES is the second book in a contemporary series with well thought through characters and steamy scenes. I was really looking forward to it, especially thanks to the beautiful cover and I wasn't disappointed.

Sebastian ends up at a concert of a singer he's not that big a fan of and the last thing he expects is to actually meet the singer himself – not that he even recognizes him at first. But Keith's push

First, even though this is part of a series, it's a standalone. Sebastian is the guy who Russell (Dan's boyfriend) was with at the rally--that's the connection between the books. Dustin is mentioned once, but only in passing, and Stuart doesn't show up at all. So, totally a standalone. It wouldn't hurt to have the background of the rally and Stuart's descriptions of Adam and Keith as you read this one, but that's not in any way necessary. I will say that I fully expected Stuart to show up in thi ...more

3.5 stars rounded to 4. This book is a companion to Paper Planes as two of the MCs, Adam (an actor) and Keith (a rock star), were introduced in that very lovely book by this author. However, this story is completely different. Where the build of the relationship in Paper Planes was quite slow and warm, this one is hot off the charts from day one.

Adam and Keith pick up Baz at Pride in Charleston and take him to their hotel after Keith's concert that night. They all can't get enough of each other

Normally I am not particularly drawn to romance novels involving three-way relationships. I only read Lovegames because it was the sequel to Paper Planes, which I quite enjoyed.

I found that this time, Aedin seems to have improved their writing skills considerably, in terms of building tension and conflict, and establishing a proper climax and resolution to the story. I always love it when I see writers improving their skills.

Lovegames is also quite a bit more serious, a deals mental illness, alc

4.5 stars. This is an addictive book. It's Aedin's sexiest book yet, and it is HAWT. I'm not a big menage reader, but it truly works here. Adam, Keith, and Sebastian are deep, real characters and their dynamic absolutely works. Despite being a meaty length, the ending felt a tad rushed, with a more HFN ending. I'm hoping like crazy she has a sequel planned as I want more Seb, Keith, and Adam. NOTE: Listen to the Loose Id warning on dubious consent--there is a scene very late in the book that mig ...more

I enjoyed this, though I have not read Paper Planes at this point, so I don't have the comparison issue. All three characters were likable, and the sex was hot. Out of the three of them, Keith, the rock star, has the most issues, mainly due to his bipolar diagnosis. Adam was wonderful but spends a lot of his time taking care of Keith. Baz was cute and sweet. There is a lot of sex, though it seems to work for this story. I really would have liked to have seen more struggle with Keith's mental iss ...more

I loved this story but I also had issues with it. I enjoyed it at the beginning but didn't really feel invested in it until I was almost halfway in. At that point I loved it and had trouble putting it down, but was concerned that it didn't seem like there were anywhere near enough pages left to be able to bring it to a satisfactory conclusion. And, indeed, I felt it ended too abruptly and soon. There has to be a sequel, otherwise it's a tease.

Did not work for me. I got incredibly bored as I could not make myself care about the characters. Also did not feel like much happened in the story, heck half way through the book and the only interaction between all three characters were the one night stand and a few text messages. In my opinion, the story was mainly about the lack of privacy in relationships with/between celebrities. The threesome aspect of the relationship (apart from in the bedroom) was hardly explored, and felt like it was ...more

The characters where well "drawn" and fully developed. The characters don't have a unexplained or sudden change in personality. The plot was consistent. I did think the whole mystery stalker of Adam was a dead end of a plot. The reactions of the characters to each of the situations that developed seemed realistic. The menage of the three felt feasible and right. Just like a couple the three felt right together and made you want them to work it all out. I also liked how well Baz completed Adam an ...more

This book is HOT, the sex is clear and detailed which is important in a m/m/m story. There is a romance that develops between the three men. I was at times frustrated by the lack of communications in the relationship but I think that is a bit understandable in any relationship at times.

I highly recommend this if you want some lovely smutty action with hot men burning up the sheets :)

Very good book, I loved all the characters and the way Keith bipolar was described (view spoiler).
Only thing I would have liked more was an epilogue, because the end seemed a bit abrupt.

3.5 Stars.

I as a rule don't enjoy menage stories. At all. This one however, was a surprise. I think what made this one enjoyable was the true depth of each of the characters. Dont get me wrong there was sex, sex, and more smoking hot sex but still a good story with some angst. A solid read.

When not reading or playing video games or writing (or doing all three at once!) Jules is generally trying to convincingly pretend to be a responsible adult and at least do laundry once in a while. Oh, and show up for the evil day job and f ...more
