Just close your eyes and feel: soft, warm lips skimming from your shoulder to your ear, your skin prickling and tickling. Then add another set, echoing the first, layer upon layer of sensation as two sets of hands join the game, stroking, sliding, ratcheting up the heat. And when your lips part and the tip of your tongue darts out, it's met by two more in a luscious, messy ...more

Will read and rate/review as I go along..
I'm sure they will contain some spoilers! ;)
An average of 3-4*

The Thank You Note by Jamie Freeman 3.5*
An established couple decides on a 3rd for their anniversary!
I liked the couple, they are very different like day and night and Aiden was cute!
This is another one of those stories I wish was a standalone and longer, I really would love more of these guys.

Not Just A Piece Of Meat by Zahra Owens 3.5*

I think I might be taking a break from Dreamspinner anthologies for a while. I think honestly they just put too many similar stories together and this is third or fourth anthology when everything blends together into one long, tiring theme. That’s not to say there aren’t stand out stories on their own and if read piecemeal over a much longer period, several are quite enjoyable. Unfortunately read all at once this anthology blends into a lot of erotica and sex scenes, numerous justifications for ...more

This is another time when I wish we could use half-star measurements, so I could rate this a 4.5. Sometimes with anthologies, you have a couple of great stories and a lot of so-so stories. But the vast majority of these stories were terrific, with only two that I didn't really care for.

HOMECOMING, by Emily Moreton, was my favorite by far. There was something wonderfully urgent about the story, and even though it stays in Ben's POV, I really get a sense of all three characters as they reconnect

I always have trouble reviewing anthologies. Some stories really do it for me, some don’t. I never remember to write down which is which. Necking is dedicated to threesome relationships, men only. Needless to say this is erotica and there will be sex, lots of sex. I’m reminded that turn ons for me are squicks for other people and vice versa (for example, not unsurprisingly rimming is used heavily, one of my all-time squicks but it’s erotica and I wasn’t surprised to see it. I know how to skim so

Beautiful Friend was my favorite of this steaming hot anthology with a pretty good mix of threesome stories. Recommended.
Thank You Note (3 stars): This made a good intro to this characters. It set them up beautifully and gave a good feeling about them. But it felt very much like a beginning of a story and not a complete one.

Not Just a Piece of Meat (3 stars): I enjoyed the characters personalities in this one but there wasn't a lot more than sex.

Getting a Filling (4 stars): Funny and sexy. I loved alot of the humor and the fun in the dentist office.

1+1+1=3 (2 stars): The characters just did do anything for me in t

I think I only actually finished three stories before I called it quits and elected not to finish the anthology at all. Most of them were kinda of bland and I skimmed a lot.

I lost all interest once I reached Beautiful Friend by Dar Mavison. I found this story to be problematic and offensive as hell.

Tex likes being fucked and can't conceive of someone not liking being fucked. Even after he's told "Gabriel doesn't want to be fucked, don't go near his ass" Tex still, continually insists on trying

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

I am an absolute sucker for a menage story. So much so that I’ll buy basically any m/m/m book that’s published. When I saw that the Necking anthology was full of m/m/m stories, and it contained several of my favorite authors, I jumped on the chance to review it. I can definitely recommend it to m/m/m fans. While I only reviewed eight stories, I read almost all of them, and they all ranged between 4-5 stars for me. I’ll admit that short stories often leave me a litt
Necking is an entertaining anthology of 15 M/M/M stories. The situations and relationships vary but all center around a menage. I enjoyed all of the stories, some more than others as is normal in an anthology. My favorites were Down the Middle by Heidi Cullinan, Thank you Note by Jamie Freeman and Neighbors by Day, Naughty by Night by Devon Rhodes.

A sexy anthology of m/m/m short stories. Some are only meh, but most of them are really good. There's even one or two that are quite angsty and emotional which is pretty amazing to find in a short. Overall, 4 stars.

These are all m/m/m and despite people telling me to spread it out ... well, over 3 days is spreading it out for me. It was fine that way. I can't review all 15 or so here but I'll take note of some that I particularly enjoyed. They are a mix of bringing a guy home from the bar for a one-off (sometimes as a regular part of a relationship or as a truly one time event) and those in which the third is brought into the relationship permanently. I like both types and enjoyed a mix. They are mostly co ...more

Since I'm in the anthology, I don't feel it right for me to review it but I think those looking for threesomes erotica would definitely find what they're looking for here
