This story sizzles, burns, crackles, and blisters in all its sweltering, torrid, ardent, lustful glory.

Matt and Toby, both 22, are firemen, best friends, and lovers. They work, play, and live together. They're both instantly attracted to Bryce (who's older, although it's unclear how old;
Wow, this was practically the polar opposite of the first book in the series. While that book was all about the emotion and sexual awareness of the three men, this book was all about Bryce, the third man of an already established relationship of two, trying to talk himself out of the hookup. And, man, did that get old! I stopped at 50% and Bryce was still scoping out other men while at a bar with Toby and Matt. Just no emotion. I only read the one sex scene, which I thought had potential since i ...more

2.5 stars rounded up to 3

I really liked the first two parts of the series focussing on Jack, Gray and Mason. I was already a little wary when I heared that this part of the series would be focussing on Bryce - a firefighter who is new in town and also working as a bartender part-time. In order to overcome difficult memories, Bryce decided to leave Atlanta behind and to start over in another town and at another station.

Two young firefighters - Toby and Matt - are quickly raising his interest,
This one was ok, but I enjoyed the first two books in this series more. Bryce's inner dialog got in the way of the story flow a bit too much, in my opinion. Beyond that, I enjoyed the sex scenes, but would have loved to have more actual character development. This story felt a touch rushed.
3.5 stars

This easily works as a standalone, although there are appearances from Mason, Gray and Jack of the first 2 stories.

While the bedroom action was hot and the story was entertaining, I didn't feel as much of a connection with Bryce, Matt and Toby as I did with the men in the prior books. I felt like I didn't get to know them enough outside of the attraction and the shared job. I also found Bryce's internal monologue to be a bit much (but this is often a peeve of mine) and the fact that he

Burning up is book three in the Fitting In series and sees the introduction of three new men. Bryce, Toby and Matt all work out of the same firehouse and whilst Toby and Matt are already in a relationship they are clearly sending out signals to Bryce showing their interest in getting together with him.

They are an interesting mix of characters; Bryce is much older than Matt and Toby and isn’t sure whether it is attraction or flattery that he feels at first.

Not much to say about this one. I just couldn't feel the connection between them. The sex was hot, sure, but it felt rushed and sometimes came out of nowhere. Bryce's inner battle was a bit tiring. Then he would give in and then he would feel guilty again.

The second half of the book was a little more engaging.Generally, I liked the first two books of the series way more.

Of course, I'm not sorry I read it because

Ideally I'd like to rate this 3.5, but since half stars aren't allowed and I loved getting to visit with Mason, Jack and Gray I had to round up to 4.

I couldn't really get into this story.

I found Bryce inner battle (if he should be with Matt and Toby or not) annoying as HELL!!...OMG, Make up your goddamn mind....!

Matt & Tobey was so damn sweet, and if it was not from them it had been a DNF!
Hmn, okay. Not as good as the first. The connection wasn't all the way there for me. And, I couldn't get over Bryce's description of himself as some "older" guy. It may have played better if he were an older man. 32 is not old. Now I sound old! Whatever! You know what I mean.

I love these men!!! Another beautifully written love story of a MMM relationship.. The story line flows well and the character development was amazing. The connection with the first 2 novels in the series makes a for a great story!! Bryce was a firefighter that came from Atlanta to get away from a tragic event in his line of work. He is the lieutenant of one of the fire department stations and he is out to those around him. He also works with Mason at the bar which ties them all together. He mee ...more

3.5 stars for me, not quite enough to round up to the 4 stars. I loved Toby, and I also liked seeing Mason, Grey, and Jack pop up in this one. But at the same time, I wish we had gotten a break from Bryce's POV and gotten to know more what Toby and Matt were thinking and going through. I think that the inner dialogue of Bryce's constant "I want them but shouldn't do this" got old before the story was even half way done, and I do wish we had known more about Toby and Matt, other than only how Bry ...more

Really enjoyed this book. Well written with well developed characters. Was great to find out that there were more books in this series. Read the first two a few years ago and just realized that they are two more. Loved it.

3.5 star review by Vicki

Yummm…. Three hot firefighters! What’s not to like about this story…

I liked the first two books in this series quite a bit, and I was happy to see Silvia Violet continuing it. I was concerned that it’s a different threesome though, I really like the three from the first books. So I went in to this with a bit of trepidation.

I mostly liked the book, but I didn’t like is much as the other two books, I’m sorry to say. This is all from Bryce’s perspective, and he whines waaaaa

Genre: M/M/M Contemporary

Bryce has just transferred from Atlanta to Durham and is surprised by an attraction he feels to not one of his crew, but two. Matt and Toby are 10 years his junior, they are also bestfriends and Bryce suspects they are more than just friends. He is conflicted though, not sure a ménage relationship can work and also, they are all on the same crew at the firehouse, which could serve as a distraction to the job when emotions are involved.

This third book of the series Fitting In did not stray much from its first two book’s premise. It’s still a ménage but this time, it is between firefighters. Bryce has been a firefighter for ten years and when a horrific house fire pushed him to move into a new city, he found himself thrown into the temptation that is Matt and Toby – two hot young firefighters in the closet who are looking for a third in their relationship.

As they indulge in a night of passion, Bryce realized what he’s been miss

This is the third book in this series, but the first one I read. It truly was a stand alone, but we got to meet one of the couples from one of the other books (I assume since they were a 3-way male couple).

Bryce is openly gay, when outside of work that is. He doesn't want to be judged at the firehouse so he keeps it to himself. He is attracted to two of the younger guys who are always messing around with each other. Although he is suspicious that there is more than friendship going on b

What's better than two hot firemen??? Three hot firemen!!

Bryce has only been in Durham for a few months. He needed a change of scenery after a bad experience while at a fire in Atlanta. He's not looking for a relationship but he can't stop fantasising about the two newbie's he works with.

Matt and Toby have been together since high school. While their bond is strong they are looking for something more. Both men need someone to step in and take control in the bedroom. But how do they convince Bryc

3 stars of okay-ness. While it had its moments of smokin' hotness with the sexy 3 way, I found myself becoming slightly more bored as I continued to read. Mainly because I didn't necessarily feel the connection of the three come really full circle. And I know that with any relationship be it with 2 3 or heck 4 people things get messy complicated and confusing. But usually somehwere things come full circle as a whole and that did not happen for these three. I wanted it to but it fell flat. I just ...more

Bryce is a friend of Mason (from books one and two) and a fireman. He meets two new guys on his crew (they are clearly a couple already) and is enthralled.

Matt and Toby subtly begin to flirt with Bryce, and though he thinks this will all end horribly, he can’t say no.

They begin a month long affair and everything seems wonderful when there is an accident that puts Matt in the hospital. Suddenly Bryce feels worried that they are all about to sacrifice their careers and breaks up with the boys.

This was a fun and very sexy read. There wasn't a lot of emotions in this one but I was sucked into the story anyway. This is 3-way ménage story involving Toby & Matt who are boyfriends and Bryce. All are firefighters in the same unit and this makes Bryce say no in the beginning besides not wanting to mess up Toby and Matt's relationship. Toby & Matt are still in the closet and even after adding Bryce Matt is still scared of coming out, especially at work. That is the gist of the story. ...more

In the third entry in the Fitting in series, we meet fireman Bryce, Matt, and Toby. We got a little introduction to Bryce in Sorting Out when Mason introduced him to Gray and Jack as his fellow bartender at Nathan's. As in the first two installments, trust and love is key to the building of the relationship. Sometimes it takes tragedy or near-tragedy to show us what really matters and what is truly important to our hearts and souls and that is what Bryce learns. Watching him learn this lesson is ...more
