I will start by saying that Kiernan was not a fave character of mine. Nothing to do with him being a self-proclaimed slut, and in a somewhat relationship with Rhett&Ethan (read first book). My dislike came from, he got terribly upset when he figured out he was being used by both men (no shit Sherlock). I just couldn’t wrap my mind around how he thought it was all about him when it came to the relationship he shared with both men. Moving on, because this review is not about the first book. I am not the type to read books in a series back-to-back, but I felt the urge to this time. I can say folks I am not disappointed.
So Kiernan ‘the slut’ is a nice guy, he makes no apologies about who is and what he likes to do. He doesn’t do relationships but he can handle the casual hook-up. He lives a life of sex and fun, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. He still does the ménage thing with both Rhett and Ethan and it seems to be on solid ground. You can tell that all three men are friends. When Sabrina the daughter of Rhett asks Kiernan for a favour, he blows off a night of hot sex with her father to be guide to a recently out gay kid. The upside is that Alex is gorgeous, and Kiernan is expecting his hot night of sex.
Well Alex comes with a few surprises. His complete lack of sexual experience, and his shy and sweet personality. Definitely not what Kiernan is use to but he is willing to give it a try. Kiernan fears he might be the wrong person to explore things with Alex, never wanting to be the person who introduces anyone to sex. Both men set the rule that it’s all about sex, and nothing more will ever come of it. Kiernan fears that no one else will take the time to make it good for Alex, and he knows personally what its like to go into something and being hurt. He becomes teacher to a shy boy with the gorgeous eyes and a mouth made for cocksucking (yep I just wrote that).
What unfolds is pure awesmazingness. I am a fan of Kiernan’s honesty, he makes no apologies for who he is and doesn’t try to be someone he’s not. Alex gets the genuine Kiernan. Alex is so believable in his innocence and shyness, yet so very eager to learn. He’s a lost boy on the road to self-discovery and he found the right man to help him along. I loved finding out about Kiernan and why he doesn’t trust relationships, I would have felt the same if I were him. The sex was written wonderfully with the right amount of pacing and when it happened ‘it happened’.
I am happy with this offering by L.A, she wrote a beautiful story about a slut and his virgin. How finding the right person to love can change your outlook on many things. I am glad Kiernan got his story cus I would have disliked him to the end. He is everything you never get to see in the first book. He is sweet, caring, and offers so much more than ‘I am a great lay’. I loved him and Alex together they deserve their happiness and so much more. I recommend this read, it will cause a pants losing and leave candy cane feelings in your heart.

Watching Jaime graduating from college fills Sean with pride, and when Jaime invites him to a college party Sean is happy to be hanging with the man he loves. He could never tell him how he feels, because he fears rejection but Jaime surprises him with a love confession of his own. He is also in love with Sean, and now he can do something about it. They make love for the first time, Sean being a virgin, is happy Jaime is his first. He believes he finally has the man he loves, until the next morning when he finds out Jaime is gone.
Twelve years later Sean is successful and fully out, and has a boyfriend Tyler who he adores and his life is good. He still bares the pain of Jaime’s rejection and betrayal, and is happy if he never sees him again. Until his parents tell him, that Jaime has left the army and is returning home. It’s hard to avoid someone when your parents are close friends, and Sean can’t avoid Jaime forever. Things get complicated when Jaime says he has returned for Sean, and he has loved him for all the years. In that moment, Sean is the boy who loved his best-friend and those feeling are hard to turn off.
So Sean has his boyfriend Tyler, and the lover who left him behind and now wants to be with him. Though Jaime accepts Sean is in a relationship, he is happy as friends and would be happy to remain so. However, the chemistry is strong between the men when they go clubbing. Sean and Tyler likes when Jaime watches them together, and there seems to be brewing chemistry between Tyler and Jaime.
I really enjoyed this one, it had me smiling from ear to ear, and the chemistry between the men was hot. The ménage was handled quite well, though it moved a bit quickly, I believed in their love. I liked Jaime, though he did pull a big douche move by deflowering and leaving Sean, he makes up for it (cus he so sweet). I liked Tyler; he’s a little firecracker and creates a nice balance in the relationship.
The guys do deal with some family drama, but it’s all dealt with a happy ending. Who doesn’t want accepting parents, because if your child is happy, isn’t that what matters the most? I think that’s why I like this book so much; it made my heart feel super happy. It’s not original when it comes to the whole ménage trope, but it was fun and I liked the characters a lot. Plus, I am somewhat bias. It’s hard to hate 3 guys fucking (surprisingly I have hated it). It was a 3.5 rating but I bumped it up because it had me smiling all freaking day. Its sweetness kinda stays with you for a bit.
