As a stand alone story it is limited to the sexual relationship of the 3 men. There are hints to something deeper but so far it is just a tease for more to come.

Ryan has a very close friendship to Trevor, and is on his way to building a friendship with Ethan. The problem is that Trevor and Ethan are so obviously much more than friends. Ryan wonders about them before Trevor comes home, but knows for sure once he gets back. That Ryan goes for Ethan in the meantime is fine, but what is Ethan think

Review: This was a very hot, very explicit and highly enjoyable story. Sex with the lights on, I’d describe it! but also with underlying emotional connection.
Review for Brief Encounters Reviews:

It’s essentially a protracted sex scene, albeit over a few days. Initially, I struggled to work out the relationships between the three men involved – I should have read the blurb more carefully :) – but otherwise the story was well-written enough to avoid the usua

Three studs, lots of sex, oh, and a little domination. Sound interesting? It should. Plus, it’s hot. What is it? With Benefits by Jenny Urban.

This story's writing is tight and doggoned hot. I felt like I was right there with Trevor, Ryan, and Ethan. It was interesting to see the power exchange between the three men. And talk about heat! I needed a cold shower and I was just reading the story. Imagine being part of the action! Holy cow! As hot as it was, I could also feel the emotions between th

This is a short, really hot read which focuses on the development of a three-way relationship between friends.

Ryan is surprised to find out that Ethan and Trevor have been friends with benefits for a while, and eager to join them. He has more trouble believing they want them for more than a one-time encounter, but it looks like they pull it off. I liked Ryan's struggle with himself as he tries to decide if he can intrude on the two-way relationship the other two have. He is too tempted to really

This is hot and sexy but I wasn't sure what the point was beyond several menage sex scenes. Ryan has moved in with a friend Trevor and while the friend is away sleeps with bartender Ethan. Although it soon becomes clear that Trevor and Ethan have a thing, but they keep dragging Ryan into their thing. But despite several sex trios, I still didn't have a clue what the deal was with Trevor and Ethan. Where they just fuck-buddies? Open relationship? You'd think Ryan would have figured that out or at ...more

Pretty much PWP. At least, once it got started, it was one long, ongoing, sexual escapade after another. Sexy sex, but that's about it.

I'd read more from this author, but it would have to have more story, plot, conclusion.

I'm a huge fan of long reads, so my biggest complaint is that it's too short. I'd have loved this to be longer, but as it is, it's still awesome. The characters are individual and have distinct voices, and the sex is scorching, with just the right amount of hope for more in the future.
3.5 stars

Super hot, very sexy, fun story about three friends entering into a menage relationship. Too bad it was so short.
