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...more

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...more

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...more
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

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...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...more

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...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...more
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.
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
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...more

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 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...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...more

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...more

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 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.

I agree with other reviewers that the stalker subplo...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
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
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.
I loved Paper Planes so was really looking forward to reading this related book. I was not disappointed. I liked all three characters and like in the previous book was quickly invested in their growing relationship. I would love to read a sequel one day. I want to see where they go from here.

I loved this, I really did. It's just that is started mostly happy and than it got sad and depressing and than a bit happier but than the characters got reeeaaally depressed and it didn't get better in the end, not really. And the ending was a bit rushed. A lot rushed, actually.
Marsha Spence
I really enjoyed this tale and really hope there is a book 3 that, if it doesn't continue where it left off, then at least give us some insight on how these guys are doing.
Mary Ellen
I just read Oco's review, which is fantastic. It articulates my opinion of this book better than I could. I was really surprised to see the low reviews on goodreads.
This was a great story, I just wish the ending wasn't so abrupt. I'm hoping for a sequel to their relationship that shows their life after they are together for good.
Smokin hot, well written story w/ fun characters. Nice light read full of hot man on man on man action.
Oh, yeah! Smexxy goodness. Down side: it ended too soon.

Growing up Southern has been an interesting experience for Jules, who discovered that labels for things like gender and sexuality are, at best, approximations. 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
