Holy shit, this was hot! 3 smut books in a day is just what the doctor ordered. Daaaamn!

Short review: 3 friends from college: Aidan, Zack and Maddie. They all had feelings for each other, but they were all afraid to admit them out loud. Several years later, Zack and Maddie hooked up and Zack was traveling around the world (he is a photojournalist). Now, Zack is back. He was super jealous about his friends being together, but he soon found out that there was something missing in their sexual rela

I really liked this one. Especially Zach was an interesting character. Aiden was just great and Maddie developed really well

If you are looking for a good permanent menage story, this is it. A good time frame, great characters, real chemistry and sparks and real feelings

Loved reading it

Slick's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Some authors excel at writing different romance troupes and for Kelly Jamieson it is ménage, that's not to say the rest of her work isn't excellent, but when it comes to ménage Ms. Jamieson always delivers an emotional packed story along with beautifully written intimate scenes. Loving Maddie from A to Z is an poignant story of a couple and their best friend from college learning to own up to the desires, communicate them to each other and be

Received in exchange for a honest review.

For me the dynamic I loved isn't what the book is about. It isn't the missing pieces that help complete the relationship of Aiden and Maddie. It isn't Maddie and Zack's love for each other. It is the poly relationship that Zack, Aiden and Maddie have. It isn't even the need of Aiden's to be dominated. For me it is Zack's and Aiden's relationship dynamic that kept me in this book.

The story tells of a couple Aiden and Maddie who love each other deeply but

“Maddie,” he said in a quiet but authoritative tone. “Kiss Aidan.”
She turned wide eyes on him. “Wh-what?”
Zack lifted his chin. “Kiss him.”
He glanced at Aidan. Aidan blinked.
“Do it,” he ordered, his tone harder. He reached blindly for the remote control for the TV and turned it off.

I have to admit, this is normally not a book I would choose for myself. The description didn't quite grab me, plus it seemed like a whole lotta drama. But it also sounded lie it would be super hot... and oh was it ever!

Maddie and Aiden and Zack were all pretty interesting characters. Maddie works in public relations, Aiden is in charge of some huge architecture company and Zack is a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist. I liked that, for the most part, the

Zack is recovering after being held captive in a foreign country. He has no where to go so he ends up with his former best friends Maddie and Aidan, who are now a couple. After not seeing them for 7 years because he couldn't handle his own emotions around them, it's not the ideal situation, but he has no where else to go.

I loved this book. It was touching to see the ways Maddie and Aidan tried to please each other but both realized it wasn't working, not that they didn't love each othe

So this was a pleasant surprise. I have a habit of buying books that sit in my TBR for a while, then I'll read them without reading the blurb, and I have no idea what I'm getting into. Nothing about the cover tells me this is MMF, but it was a pleasant surprise. This was definitely an interesting story. Maddie and Aidan have been a couple for years and are solidly in love. They were close friends back in college along with Zack, but right after college, Zack took off to photograph the world's co ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads

I am a huge fan of menage books, but they have to be done right - and this one certainly is. It concentrates on the whole relationship, and throws in plenty of suitably angst laden moments. It is told from all three POVs, which is also a great way of ensuring that the reader gets to believe the whole, and not that there is an imbalance. Adding to the quality of the plot is the cast - one hot trio of intelligent, sexy, fit and

I'm a huge fan of Kelly's books, and just when I think there's no way she's going to be able to top one, she goes and proves me wrong. What I loved about this book, and all of her books, is that she isn't afraid to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty. Hard issues, no problem. Complicated relationships, she's got it covered. Kelly doesn't skirt issues, and it's refreshing to read.

Loving Maddie was an amazing story about friendship, love, and finding your way in a world where your life do

I give this story five out of five. It’s realistic, thrilling, and HOT with compelling and well-developed characters. It’s also a short read that grips the reader quickly and keeps that attention throughout.

Loving Maddie is a fabulous poly romance story that I devoured within the span of a single night… the first time in a while that I started reading and kept reading! I couldn’t put it down!

Emotionally & Sexually Charged with Just the right amount of Love...

There is never a question on whether or not I will read a book from Kelly Jamieson. From the first book I read of hers, she quickly became one of my favorite authors. But with that being said, menage stories are hard to make me like, let alone LOVE... Don't get me wrong, if they are done right, I praise them & will read them over and over again!

Loving Maddie... Definitely one of those stories! 3 friends who are definit

Note: This ARC was provided by Rock Star Lit PR in exchange for an honest review.

Loving Maddie from A to Z is a standalone novel from Kelly Jamieson, whose previous novel, Three of Hearts, I simply adored. The theme of a threesome is a familiar, though not exclusive, one for those who have read the author's other books and one that I've always considered fascinating. After all, having more than two people in a relationship is often thought

Wow! I absolutely loved this book! Loving Maddie from A to Z is a MMF ménage romance that is a pure delight to read. It is an emotional, beautifully written book about a couple that feels something is missing in their relationship, and a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who could be the missing element that their relationship needs.

Maddie, Aidan and Zack were best friends in college but Zack moved away when his heart was broken by the two people he loved becoming a couple. Zack travelled the wo

Loving Maddie is by far one of the sexiest novels I have come across in a while. I inhaled this novel in less than 12 hours. This novel is filled with an extreme amount of heat, and I couldn’t put it down until it was finished. Kelly Jamieson did an incredible job of creating a couple that needs to regain the spark they once had in order to save their relationship. Maddie and Aidan came across as such a sweet couple and I desperately wanted them to fix their relationship throughout the entire no ...more

Friendship is priceless, and when this friendship has a strong bond is very difficult to break however when the love you have for one another turns more than friendship love then is when hearts tend to get broken.

After college, Zack leaves to become a photojournalist and because he comes to some realizations that he might not be ready to deal with. Left behind, Maddy and Aidan fall in love.

Loving Maddie from A to Z is an awesome story that hit the reader in all the right spots. It's hot, sexy, emotional, and refreshing.

I love that she took a settled couple and added the third to an established relationship. The adjustments that need to be made make for some interesting situations. There is a lot of emotion in the book as Zack comes back from a war zone and learns his friends aren't what he thought they were. And he has the ability to "help" them

I totally dig Kelly Jamieson's books, and Loving Maddie from A to Z is no exception to that. Sexy and sweet, Loving Maddie from A to Z is one read you won't want to miss!

The beginning had a bit of a slow build up. But after a few chapters, things pick right up and I couldn't put this one down for a minute. In fact, I essentially read through in one sitting. I fell in love with the characters, and by the end, I didn't want to say good bye!

I have to say that Kelly Jamieson really does a menage very well. You never go wrong with her menage stories. And this is no exception. She sets the characters up very nicely, gives them lots of sexual tension as they start to feel things for each of the other two in the not-as-of-yet relationship, provides a great opportunity for them to all get together, then gives them a little misunderstanding where one of them isn't sure they are part of the group, and then we all get together.
