I made it to 25% but then had to stop. The way this ménage was shaping up was just not my cup of tea.

MC Samuel is only 18. A runaway and afraid for his life. MC Daniel, the firefighter, has just rescued Sam (who is so underdeleoped and malnourished that everyone thinks he is a young girl at first) has a case of insta-love/lust. So much so he has to run to the men's room in the hospital to rub one out so he can concentrate on talking with Samuel. That creeped me out, big time. And Daniel had jus
3.5 stars

I enjoyed the characters, especially Samuel, but I felt the story was missing something and dragged a bit in the middle. Daniel and Milo who have been together on and off over the last six years each needed something the other couldn't give and apparently Samuel was able to fill that gap. Their differences were such a big issue between the two men in the beginning, but that part of the story was just abandoned. It wasn't a bad read, but I think I just expected a bit more depth.

While I wasn't a fan of the second book in this series, this one was a little more tolerable, mostly because there was conflict and suspense mixed in with the romance, and the romance was an okay menage. I say it's only okay because I've read some great menage tales, and this won't hold a candle to them, but still, it was worth a read.

That being said, I still stand behind my conviction that Coleville's writing needs work. Her dialogue quickly devolves into long, flowery, unrealistic monologues,

A lot of potential to the story - much of it unrealized. Too much sex to start - and that's something I rarely say. I liked all 3 MC's but didn't love them. Daniel and Milo seemed kind of boring frankly. Samuel completely unlike how I imagine someone who's been a victim of sex trafficking would be. No therapy? No help? It just seemed so unreal.

What I enjoyed was Samuel's story in general - would have liked to see WAY more of what he experienced. As always when it is referred to, or inferred, t

I always say when a ménage is done well you can’t beat it and this ménage was done well.

Nicole Colville writes fairly long stories that give you a chance to get your teeth into them and really get to know the characters.

Milo and Daniel have been an on again off again couple for the past six years and at the moment they are off again. Daniel is a firemen and even though he was the most easy going out of the pair he was the one I warmed up to last. He was

I liked this story. The characters were diverse and well-developed, it was well-paced and had a good old-fashioned villain. I don't get to read many books where events happen in England so this was part of the attraction. I loved how both Milo and Daniel were with Samuel, how patient they were.

In fact, the first part of the book was about Milo and Daniel's relationship and how they came to be together, why it didn't work out between them and what they were doing to try to make t

Emotional and sexy as hell. This book was absolutely perfect. Not all authors write menage well, but I can't wait to read the rest of this series now
4.5 stars

Great beginning to this ménage series.
MEH. I read Discovering Dalton and thought I would give this a try, since Milo seemed like an interesting character. But maybe, I should have looked at my review of DD and thought it over more.

This book is... Too perfect?! Or Samuel as a character is?! Also Samuel is only 18, which made the power-imbalance between the 3 even more... "Creepy"?!
Milo (police officer) and Daniel (fireman) have been a couple on and off for a long time. They are solid when they are together and they love each other, b

I think I had very high expectations for this book. I really did like the book. But I fear it lacked depth for me. I didnt think Daniel's character was fleshed out enough. The troubles between Daniel and Milo (like Danny's extra sex partners, Milo's refusal to bottom, Danny's Untidiness and Milo's lack of emotions) they were either forgotten about or just skimmed though. I liked Samuel's character. I thought it was well done.

I will certainly read the next book but in short the book just didnt r
This was a nice hot threesome book that did go a little bit beyond the PWP concept. Milo and Daniel have a on again off, off again type relationship. The sexy needs to be saved Samuel bring them together. On the outside of this it is a story I really shouldn't like. Since this is a insta-love/lust type threesome. Plus the fact that Samuel really isn't in a position after being abused for years to be in a healthy threesome. Still it has the two alpha males protecting the delicate Samuel, and it d ...more

I'm on the fence on this book. I enjoyed the story, but at the same time, meh. I would have enjoyed seeing more of how Samuel fixed the problems that Daniel and Milo had on their own. Not all of their issues were resolved by having a third. It's like he was the band-aid that got taped over their issues, but not actually fixing them. They had arguments about a lot of things, and while I could see how Samuel fixed some of them, I would have liked to have more resolution about their issues, rather ...more

What a beautiful story filled with excitement, danger, romance, love and tons of great sex!
I felt like I was on a journey with these characters. You will fall in love with Samuel pretty much instantly. Nicole did a great job of showing you her characters personalities. You get attached to them very quickly.
Nothing was rushed in this book. I appreciate the time Milo and Daniel take with Samuel. You can really feel the love these three share for one another. It seems that Samuel was exactly what M

Loved this book. I've read a lot of 3some books and this is in my top favorite. Yes! it is possible for love to come in any number. I know this because I am in a relationship like this, going on five years now. So I love to read about happy, even though I know there will be drama in fiction, stories like this. Looking forward to the rest!

4.5/5 stars...

When Daniel finds a scared and obviously distraught girl locked in a closet while working to put out a fire, his heart breaks just a little bit. Who would want to hurt someone so seemingly innocent? Once he gets to the hospital to check on her, Daniel learns that she is actually a he, Samuel. A run in with his sort of ex, Milo, who is the cop assigned to investigate the arson case only sets Daniel on edge.

Samuel has been through a lot at such a young age. His father was killed when

Nicole Colville introduces us to the three men who start off the Manchester Ménage series. An alpha male, an understanding male and a pretty boy. Apart, they are all just looking for love and acceptance … together they find strength and power.

Milo is our alpha male police officer. His one fault is not being able to voice his feelings. He’s losing Daniel and has to overcome his fears, has to let him know how he really feels and truly let him i

Saving Samuel is book one in Author Nicole Colville's new Manchester Ménage Collection.

I will start off by saying Ms. Colville rocked this Ménage, this had the perfect fit and developments in here leaving no one left to feel less wanted or less desire do. This story had the perfect balance in it, at times I'm weary on reading Ménage stories afraid of someone being left out but this author did an amazing job.

I know I am a little late getting this review..LOL What can I say about Ms. Colville's latest hit, Saving Samuel except that is magnificent. I love menage books to begin with and I am always excited to see how the author is going to construct the the pieces of this type of relationship. Of course, Nicole did not disappoint at all. The dynamics of the characters managed to balance one another out. The story was full of just the right amount of angst and suspense to keep the reader vested in the c ...more

There is nothing I love more than new characters from one of my favourite authors, so to get three in the one book is like Christmas.

We are pulled deep into a world that our unsung heroes knew existed, a world filled with darkness and deceit, but we will get onto that later.

Daniel is a fireman, okay so you had me hooked at the thought of that, then you add in a hunky Police officer and the fires Daniel fights aren’t the only thing getting hot around here. Throw in a young man who needs protectin

C’est la première fois que je lis un livre de cet auteur. D’ailleurs, le premier livre traduit, je ne l’ai pas lu, car ayant eu un avis sur lui, qui décrivait une relation à trois, qui n’était pas celle que j’attendais. Je ne lis ce genre d’histoire que quand je sais que les trois héros seront justes dans leurs relations, peu importe quoi. Donc, pour celui-ci, je me suis lancée en lisant le résumé, car j’ai vu qu’il était différent. Et j’ai tellement aimé ! Bon sang, je dois dire qu’avec la cou ...more

Um, I not sure about this series, or whether I'll continue with it. I thought the part which Gigi objected to (you should read her mini review) was downright sleazy, and I totally agreed with her, but somehow Samuel got under my skin, silly sap that I am. I didn't care too much for either Daniel or Milo, Daniel seemed very immature for his age (and for his position as a fire fighter) and Milo, well he seemed to be very indecisive considering he was a police officer. It was only really when Samu

This book had it all. Sexy Cop, Sexy Fireman and a troubled runaway. Mix in some bad guys and you have a dramatic menage.
Daniel saves Sam from a burning abandoned building and thinks Sam is a she.
Milo is Daniel's very recent ex-boyfriend and is the cop sent to question Sam about the fire.
When Sam runs Daniel catches him and offers him a place to stay. The attraction is instantaneous.
Milo isn't ready to let Daniel go and is just a little jealous of Daniel's attraction to Sam.

Loved this book!

You know a book is beyond amazing when you go to put it in a collection... And you realize it fits in several of them! Daniel and Milo have been together for 6 years but have never been able to connect 100%, always something missing. Then Daniel saves Samuel and they realize he is the missing piece to the puzzle. Such a tender love story. Samuel has been through so much and Milo and Daniel are there to help him through it all.. Milo even to the point of risking his job! And when

On the fence.

There were aspects of the book I really liked, then there were many I didn't. The characters are all great in their own way and the storyline is interesting. A firefighter and a police officer who have been seeing each other for 6 years both fall for the same man they save/investigate on a case. The big problem I have is insta-love. All three men become so wrapped in each other before we have had a chance to ease into a menage relationship. The dialogue also becomes super lovey dove

Oh I wanted to love it.
What I liked: hot guys, hot sex, decent plot, hea
What I didn't: instalove, went on forever... And nearly overdosed on the sweetness. A good 1/3 could have been removed.

This is the perfect book for a lot of people.

This was like a train wreck. Even though I didn't like it I couldn't stop looking. It was like a trashy mills and boon. So cheesy, over the top.
Daniel can't contain himself with want and he has to run to the bathroom to jack off. Yeah, ummm. No.

3.5 Stars - I liked the dynamic between all three men and the sex was hot. I just felt it dragged in a few places.
