***3 Stars***

One word to describe this book? H.O.T.

This was fog-up-all-your-windows-and mirrors-steamy! We get not one, not two, but three sexy, Alpha uniformed men with tons of testosterone and very healthy sexual appetites. All attracted to each other with emotions flying high. Rights to be wronged. Histories to be shared. Add in the fact that they're stuck in a safe house in the boonies, with a raging blizzard and time to kill...hmmmm, what to do? what to do?

That's get it all here folks! Solos, duos,

This m/m/m "romance" is about three tough guys (CIA/Delta/Cop) who are on the run from the big bad Daddy of the CIA guy. And while on the run, CIA and Delta, who have been lovers since teenage years (on/off) re-connect and also include the Cop (new lover of the Delta). Could have been good, could have been hot. Was neither.

The three tough guys were cursing alot when they were not busy either f***ing or tal
FOUR & A HALF STARS--So I've already established I enjoy SE Jakes's writing, it contains the right doses of angst, humor, wit, sex, etc. And after reading Bound By Honor, I was very interested in LC finally getting!

Was I disappointed? HELL NO! SE Jakes included a few of my favorite characteristic in my book men.




And a Prince Albert piercing!!!!!

All thrown into a sexy menage of deliciously wounded men. There was some raunchy scehis...!
3.5 stars

There may be spoilers below

Law, Paulo and Styx's story picks up from where it was at the end of Bound by Honor. Despite being told by Law to stay away, Paulo can't help but still have feelings for him. Law is still trying be a one-man fortress. And Styx is trying to stay out of Law's life, even if it kills him to see Law getting closer to Paulo. So it's a clusterfuck, to put it lightly.

External forces push the three together, and things finally start moving.

Wow, this book was something else. I'm not usually one for menage, there's only been a couple of other books I've read where I've felt it works, but this one made me eat my general dislike.

I felt each of the three men in this little thruple was loved and respected by the others equally and the sex scenes were ridiculously smoking hot and generally well written. Only a couple of times did I think they weren't working in the right place for the story narrative.

I love these three together as they are H-O-T!

I was intrigued by them when I read No Boundaries and was excited to read about them and how they ended up together. More focused on the sex (believe me, I'm not complaining), than the plot (although it was definitely there), this was a great insight into how these three started their relationship.

I would type more, but Adam was spot on with how I felt in his review below:

I enjoyed this one more than the first book. The three alphas Styx, Law and Paulo have great chemistry and are all haunted by their pasts. Aided by Styx's partner Tom Cat the three men are trying to eliminate someone from Styx's past who will do just about anything to get to him. Of course the threesome is hot and we got the resolution to the story of Styx and Law that began in book one. So far though, the Hell or High Water series is still my favorite of S.E. Jakes.

First of all I need to say wow. This is such an intense, emotional, and fascinating read! While the men were sort of introduced in the first volume, that was really just scratching the surface. As I got to know them better in this second book, the full impact of their situations hit me right in the gut. All three are lost, have more secrets than should be allowed, and need healing and someone to love them so badly, it tore at my heartstrings. I think none of the three could have been fulfilled w ...more
*** 2.5 Stars ***

The first book in this series had its own faults, but at least it was rooted in reality. This one only pretended to be and that fact annoyed the fuck out of me. In fact, this book lost me almost from the first page - when Law thought it was more important to receive a hand job from his long-lost lover than it was to check on the well-being of his current lover during a freakin' gunfight. That would happen in no universe. Ever.

The last half of the book got slightly better, but the

You saved his life," Styx repeated quietly, cupped Paulo's chin in his palm and forced him to meet his gaze. "You saved mine."

Paulo felt his cheeks flush. Hell, his whole body was on fire. "He loves you, I couldn't let anything happen to you."

"You would give him up if that would make him happy?"

"Yeah I would."

"That's why he loves you."

"If I hadn't told him that I researched his childhood, he wouldn't have been outside in the line of fire."

"Bullshit." Styx's words were firm, but his eyes were kind. The man with no childhood and teenage memories before the age of si

Ok I always believed the old saying “two’s company and three’s a crowd” when it came to love, that is until i was introduced to menage in books (thanks Tina). In this book I have found another reason to keep seeking them out. Here we have Law, Styx and Paulo, all three lonely, broken hard edged, alpha men. What surprises me again is the author’s ability to convince me a long term menage is possible, that there could be actual love and commitment between 3 men.

This book was unfortunately a hot mess. I re-read parts of Bound by Honor, because honestly, It didn't even feel like the same person had written them both. It felt like this was a rushed follow-up by an author who was afraid to let her characters experience any real emotional danger. I still like Bound by Honor--it doesn't seem to have the problems this one did.

There was no interesting conflict. The potential was there, but everyone fell in love so easily & no one was particular
Well, that was quite anticlimactic - at least plotwise.

After spending almost 250 pages with a trio of highly-trained alpha males that ooze masculinity, and practically being drowned in a sea of testosterone, I was expecting some differnt kind of ending. Something along the lines of a Bruce Willis or Jason Statham movie, with lots of gunfire, explosions and sweat. That would've been a worthy finish! But the actual ending? Not so much.

I can't deny the hotness of this book,

Mix them all together and it could be a powerful love.

❤And when I read a ménage I always hope for that~

But, because I don't often find that, I find that I'm not a real big fan of ménage, but, for this writer and a few other select few I will try.

Loved everything about this book!

Styx, Law and Paulo are perfect for each other, in so many ways, I loved their chemistry.
Paulo is the cutest thing ever tbh and I really liked it when Law and Styx teamed up against him, in the most awesome way there is of course...

The story moved quickly and for me, didn't had a dull moment at all.

I'm off to read the rest of the series! Who has time for a review when Tomcat is calling me!!

It's a menage!!!! And I'm a sucker for menages. And for Law! He's such a great guy. Loved him in the first book.

Three emotionelly broken alpha males believe they can never love or be loved again. Till they meet their counterpart who makes them face their fears of vulnerability.

Styx, Law and Paulo are perfect for each other. They have such a great chemistry. I loved the story and the strong characters and I really liked the secondary character Tomcat and hope to read his story soon.

Sorry, I DNF'ed this puppy. I'm disappointed because I was looking forward to LC's story but this M/M/M was beyond reason for me. First off, if you're being shot at in a restaurant and your date is getting his rocks off with his ex in a back room ... Your. Date. Is. A. Loser. Period. I don't care how hot the ex is or how steamy their former love affair, he's a prick of the highest order who seriously has some f*cked up priorities. And, you should be running - sprinting -

This is the 2nd book in the Men of Honor series and think this is even hotter than the first book. Even though I'm not into D/s, BDSM, or spanking, something about the three men in this book make it seem really hot and sexy!

Each men is sexy in their own way, but all three together is hot like fire. You are introduced to Styx a little in the first book. The whole background of Damon, Styx and Law is revealed more in this book. All three men have suffered in their past. But Styx past is still aft

This book practically melted my kindle. The passion, lust & desire this trio felt was HOT. I loved the way this sequel tied up the loose ends from the first book but wasn't an excuse to squeeze more money from the reader. It was a complete & worthwhile read in & of itself. I read some reviews that have criticised this series as being not true gay romance as they have been written for It beats reading bodice-ripping Mills &

Let's start with the cover, super hot!
I couldn't wait for Laws HEA after reading book one. He is just a sweet heart! And truly binds the ones he loves together.
There is some serious hot MM and super serious MMM action, with a story to to bring them all together. Drama, action and a HEA, it has it all!

Even with all the sex, I really liked this. I liked LC (Law) a lot in the first book but loved him in this one. I also really liked Styx and Paulo too. Together they were really hot...three hot, super masculine hotties.

Bound by Law picks up with LC’s story from Bound by Honor. LC or Law Connor has been pining for his teenaged first love for the last 10 years. He did a lot during that time while trying to mostly forget his horrifically abusive childhood. He joined the army – Delta Force, with his friend Damon – another lost boy who had found his way to their benefactor’s home for troubled gay boys. Then LC joined Damon in opening a BDSM club – which was always more Damon’s thing than Law’s. But Law never forgot ...more


It has finally happened. I have read a M/M book with too much sex!

Well, let me explain. There are these three big, tough, strong guys. One a CIA operative, one a cop and one an ex-special forces.
They have a certain way of communicating, and it is spelled „A l.o.t o.f h.o.t .s.e.x“.
It’s really pretty simple, you talk for half a page, then you have sex for the next two. Lather, rinse, repeat.

When is too much sex actually too much? I had to ask myself that question over and over, to make sure I didn’t get it wrong.
