Start your review of Keeping Faith (Unshakable, #2)

This is the perfect example of the kind of ménage book I enjoy reading. (Deep, emotional love between all three, where all agree it only works with three and they could never pair up.) I am actually very picky about threesome's, but when done right, like Lexi Ander does with the Unshakeable series, it really turns my crank.

My absolute favorite story from the M/M Romance Group's 2013 Love Has No Boundaries collection was Lexi Ander's Playing for Keeps, the story of three collage roommates who hap

I will write a 'real' review one day, but now I just wanted to thank Lexi Ander for a wonderful, sexy, sweet, with a little suspense and intrigue and just plain AWESOME book
During the LHNB picture prompt event I asked for a menage story. ( I know THAT didn't shock anyone ) and was thrilled when Lexi Ander chose it.
She gave me sappy happy Mandy with the free short Playing for Keeps.
When she then told me she was writing a novel..and I got sneak peeks and to follow along a little while she did

4,5 stars.

AJ, Trent and Brock are back! Yay! And this time it's a full novel!

Keeping Faith is the sequel of Lexi’s Playing For Keeps, a free short-story she wrote for the LHNB event 2013. The love of AJ, Trent and Brock was just so brilliant written that I couldn’t wait for the sequel to come out. And it’s a full novel! Yay!

It’s no secret that I love good written menages and Lexi Ander is one of those authors who make it to a great reading experience. So often threesomes feel like they are more

I love me some menage, and this one combines, sexy times, with deep emotional bonds.... *sigh*

This is the continuing story of Brock, Trent and AJ. As a menage they are working just fine and in the run up to Christmas they have never been happier or more settled.

In book, Playing For Keeps, we saw the relationship between Trent and his father fall apart when the older man couldn’t accept a gay son with two partners. It seems his father has his fingers in many pies and one of them of them is about to explode. You can’t rip the mob off without repercussions an
3.5 Stars

Keeping Faith picks up a few months after Playing for Keeps leaves off. Trent is now playing for the Miami Dolphins and so the trio has moved to Miami. The book takes place around Christmas time and starts out with what has become a tradition for the three -- hiding gifts for each other to find in the days leading up to Christmas. I kind of like that. Puts a little adventure into an otherwise staid holiday.

Of course, their holiday becomes a bit more of an adventure than any of them barg
This picks up shortly after the events of Playing for Keeps and I suggest reading that wonderful free short before reading this one.

I loved that the relationship between AJ, Brock and Trent has only gotten stronger as the men have settled into their new life in Florida. While the kidnapping story was a little bit far fetched at some times, there was an interesting twist to it. In addition, we did get to see Brock, who thinks of himself as the weakest of the three, really come into himself, while

This was enjoyable. I do wonder if there will be another installment that involves Gent. I think he needs his own story (bad boy turns good or bad boy stays bad boy).

Football player Trent, sports reporter Brock, and former Marine AJ are back. Their first meeting and initial living together while they went to college in Portland, Oregon, was haunted by problems (see the free first volume ‘Playing for Keeps’). Some people had issues with them being gay, some didn’t like they’re a triad, and Trent’s father was just out to make his life difficult. Now that they have moved to Miami and are living the life they always wanted, it turns out they still have haters af ...more
Every now and then you stumble across a book and author that completely blow your mind and you need a second to regroup. This was another moment just like that for me. After the first short story I was desperate to read more on these boys. I hesitated though because I didn't want to pop that perfect little bubble they'd created for me. As a menage story, the first book was incredibly hot and sweet. I really loved it. This was so much more..

This was a deep love between 3 men that filled me with s

Liked this sequel to Playing for Keeps, which was a freebie from the 'Don't Read in the Closet' 2013 event on GR....and which I loved. The editing/formatting was a little hit and miss unfortunately, and there was too much of the kidnapping for my liking and not enough of the guys themselves. 4 stars from me.

4.5 stars! I loved this follow up to Lexi's DRITC story Playing for Keeps. There is good tension and flow. I loved seeing the three men together and felt their pain apart. The epilogue did a great job of tying up loose ends in a satisfying manner. ...more

Keeping Faith is the next installment in Lexi Ander’s Unshakable series. In the first book, Playing for Keeps, we met Trent, AJ, and Brock, a threesome in a committed and loving relationship. I think you could read book#2 as a standalone, however, you would miss out on the history the guys share and their story of love, commitment, and devotion.

Providing you read the first book, you already know Trent is a football player in the NFL. We get an inside look at his ruthless, scumbag of a father and

I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was looking forward to reading the second book a lot. And while I loved learning more about the boys, while I liked the writing and the pace of the story in general, there were things I didn't like. First, the editing could have been better. There were quite a few time where I had to search for the meaning of the sentence/word I just read. Second, there were too many coincidences in this book. Up until the involvement of Samantha I found the stor ...more

I think my rating reflects my personal preferences more so than the writing. The writing was fine. I just prefer when the focus is the relationship rather than an external plot point. Here the MCs are hardly together for most of the book so the relationship is definitely not the focus.

I skimmed a lot of the action.

Oh, this was so much better than the introductory story. It almost felt like the previous book had been shoe-horned into this as a backstory and honestly there could have been an entirely new set of characters and I would have enjoyed it.

I got a much better understanding of the characters, their motivations and thought processes...and the sex was hot.

I was a little underwhelmed by the "climax" resolution (and I'm thinking that the team must feature in some other series or novel by Lexi

Nice follow-up to Playing for Keeps. It is important to read the first book in the series before reading this. The good news is that the first book is free.

This story follows the lives of Trent, Brock and AJ. Trent is living his dream, playing for the Miami Dolphins, AJ is finishing up school and Brock is searching for a new career path. Though Brock has always wanted to be a sports reported, his relationship with Trent has put a road block to that dream. Since he refuses to give up information

Wow, loved this even more than the first part, albeit it has a totally different mood.
This one was really thrilling, angsty with barely hidden brutality.

But it is still about Trent, Brock and AJ...out to the world.
The dynamics between the trio is beautiful. Each contributes their own strenghts to this relationship.
And they are sooo damn sexy!

I really would love to read about the start of their relationship!!!

Lexi has always been an avid reader and at a young age started reading (secretly) her mother’s romances (the ones she was told not to touch). She was the only teenager she knew of who would be grounded from reading. Later, with a pencil and a note book, she wrote her own stories and shared them with friends because she loved to see their reactions. A Texas transplant, Lexi now kicks her boots up i ...more
