"Don't you know the rule of three?" He lifted an eyebrow.

"Rule of three?"

"Yes. It's some kind of design rule. You have to have an odd number. Three is the best number for an arrangement."

Hot damn this book was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.

From the first page to the last this book completely grabbed me. The story was easy to read and had a wonderful flow to it. I really like how Kelly wrote this book. It was a menage but so much more.

The rule of three: Design principle that states that things are more appealing when paired in threes. Three makes things more interesting without being overdone.

I've realized that ménage stories are typically not my cuppa tea (I just cannot relate in any way). This book, however, about a polyamorous trio is pretty darn special!! To my surprise, the relationship of the couple and eventual trio is not only believable but beautifully portrayed. One last perk: the sex is HOT!!

OK, so this was hot as hell!!! Some things worth mentioning before I go on:

1. You WILL need several changes of panties throughout this book. Or some adult diapers.
2. Your ladies bits WILL clench involuntarily on numerous occasions. Your pelvic floor muscles will thank you.
3. I pictured Chris Hemsworth, Henry Cavill and some random brunette woman while reading this. OK, me with a wig.

I haven't read too many menage books but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I liked that while there was tons of steamy scenes, there was a pretty decent story line and not just one sex scene after another. All 3 of the main characters are pretty well written. Kassidy (your typical "good girl") and Chris (your typical "man's man") are a cute and loving couple but Dag (love that we get his POV) is really what made the story for me. Dag
2.5 probably, rounded up for being free.

It's not the worst thing I have read. But it did remind me why I don't really read het any more. If I had had a drink every time the word p**sy was mentioned, I'd have had alcohol poisoning by 50%.

Kassidy was exasparating, eye-roll worthy at times, but quite reasonable at others. Still, (view spoiler)

I absolutely loved this book. I've read books before that involved a relationship with three people and I have felt they have skirted around the complications that WOULD arise. The characters in this story confronted these issues, and even though they admitted they didn't have all the answers, I am thrilled Kelly Jamieson took the time to address the issues.

I have to admit, I loved Dag. I also admit that I was thinking several times, forget Chris, stick with Dag. But in the end you learn why Chr
Absolutely amazing. Best menage book I have read so far. Believable. Realistic. Emotional. Raw. There was anger. There was laughter. There was passion. There was heat. There was sadness. There was love.


I just thought this book was amazing. Really truly amazing. Chris' character bugged me at times but after I found out what his problem was, it made sense. Kassidy was extremely realistic and very real-life. Dag...just hot. That's it. HOT. TORMEN

This was so naughty and rude and dirty but omfg I really enjoyed it.
There is very explicit mf, mmf and mm action in this, but it's not just about the smut, there's also a story as the mf couple go through kinky threesomes to realise they actually want a real mmf relationship. How do you go about sharing that with the rents and your work buddies then? And how does your big strong alpha guy cope with learning he's actually attracted to a man too.
This ends properly without a cliffhanger, but I am i

4 Stars! OK, a book for my favorites shelf!!

This was, I think one of the best menage books I've read, it comes close to Tempted by Megan Hart, but in a way it is a bit better and in a way not as deep or deeper. They are similar, in that there is a long time friendship between the guys, but this couple (Chris and Kassidy) is not married yet but heading in that direction, they work for the same company, became friends, then lovers and just moved in together and live in Chicago.

I like ménage stories. So far I have been lucky and stumbled only on good ones. I enjoy them because I'm intrigued by the novelty, the unusualness of this arrangement and most importantly how it works (not the logistics, though those are fun and at times eye-opening and eyebrow raising *wink*, but the emotional entanglement and how three people can cope with their feelings which usually should only be for one person). And that's where Rule of Three stood out above all the ménage stories I have r ...more

This was a group read, but I planned to read it anyway. Before I read it, I heard comparisons to Megan Hart's Tempted, and there were some similarities, but it was definitely its own story.

The similarities: committed couple; old friend who is attracted to the male in the committed relationship, moved away for said attraction, millionaire who is currently unemployed because he just sold his company; girl is setting up a special anniversary thing for her parents; her younger sister is a bit of a m

Please, please, please...someone send Dag my way! I was gifted a copy of this book along with Rhythm of Three and I'm in love. I had zero expectations going in and I was pleasantly surprised. I gotta admit, I'm blushing a little thinking about my favorite parts which I read over and over again. I really may need to spend an entire month in a confessional with all the dirty that's been going through my mind.

Wow. I don't know exactly what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed this book.

Yes it is a menage story, but it is so beautifully done that even if this is not your usual fair you will enjoy it anyway.

The thing I like the most is that it was a very realistic story. I say this because a lot of books that have menages makes it seem like it is so easy to maintain these types of relationships, but this one points out all of the ugly truths. Realistically, there will be some social censure and they

In fact, after a year of dating, they've just moved in together and it's looking like marriage is on the horizon. Then Chris's best friend Dag comes to town for a visit.

Dag has secretly been in love with Chris since they first met. But it was obvious Chris would never consider a relationship so Dag never admitted his feelings. He left town y

I immediately went to download it (and decided to put it ahead of a but ton of books that are already on my kindle that I want to read) - I'm also glad I did this.

Yes, this novel has lots and lots of sex - and no - none of it is conventional - so if you're at all prudish or like your novels dry then

This was definitely hot! The steamier scenes were actually the best part of the book. The other stuff is where it got a little dicey. I gave it three stars because it was what I expected. It was written well not a lot of errors to distract from it. I just couldn't roll with some of the directions that the conversations went into. Or how a character could be asking to put two penises in her mouth one minute and then be so overwhelmed with the question of "is this right?" I'm not saying that she c ...more

Chris and Kassidy have just recently moved together when Chris's best friend, Dag, comes back to Chicago from San Francisco. There was an instant attraction between Dag and Kassidy... and Chris likes to watch - and participate.

In fact, back in the day, Chris and Dag often shared women together. There is nothing hotter than watching the love of his life with his best friend. It wasn't long before they fall into a routine, with Dag staying over and the two men tag-teaming Kassidy. When feelings c

Rule of Three made me so happy! I generally love love-triangles and wish most of them end up as threesomes, so of course I enjoy menage romances! In this one, Kassidy has just moved in with her boyfriend, Chris, when his college BFF moves back to town. The couple meet up with Dag for dinner, and things get off to a tense start. But after spending a bit more time together, Kassidy can't deny that she's attracted to Dag, even though she is in love with Chris. Then Chris reveals that he likes to wa ...more

This one blew me away a bit.

Kassidy and Chris are successful, happily committed to each other, and still going at it like bunnies. You'd think there's nothing missing, but when an old friend of Chris's comes into town, bad boy image intact despite his million-dollar business ideas, and a little alcohol loosens their inhibitions and leads to a crowded night, it turns out good for everyone. But when it turns into a repeat event, things start to get interesting.

Loved the story. It was a fun, easy read. The sex scenes were hot and very well-written. Be aware (if you cannot tell from the cover/title) that this is a menage read. The majority of the scenes are m/f/m, (view spoiler). Without being pathetic, the scenes are really quite sweet and heartfelt. Menage is not one of my faves, but it was well-done here. It was portrayed in a kind and an ethical manner, with all three participants showing concern for the other two both ...more
