I’ve always been on my own. My life used to consist of nothing but work, keeping Allen out of trouble, and if I had time, sleep. Then I became their maid.


Every day more than half a million people tune in to watch my show. They trust me. I know it’s because I’m the only son of the prominent Emerson family. However, I like to believe it because I’m honest no matter

I’m going to start this review off with a warning… Once you start The Anatomy of Jane, clear your schedule. Seriously. You won’t be able to put this one down! At the end of every chapter you’ll be wanting more! I love books with a taboo element, but this book was special in so many ways besides being just taboo. Was it steamy? Hell yes. Off the charts. But that’s not all it was. It had an interesting and captivating story, strong and fascinating characters and a lot of heart!

I think that the author offering me the opportunity to read this story was pretty brave on her part. I have only read five mm stories all of which were part of mf series and I can’t even think of one fully based ménage book that I have even read though I have read scenes in random books. The above being mentioned, I was and am fully invested in all three of the main characters and it’s all due the s

To be honest this one turned out to be so much better than I had expected. This first installment in the series was intriguing and held my attention from the beginning until the end despite the fact I’m not really a fan of manage stories. Maybe because the plot was so well developed or maybe because I found the three main characters to be endearing and fascinating, but this one really worked for me. This taboo story was well written, steamy a hell and totally unputdownable, so if you

The Anatomy of Jane is book one in the WJM series by Amelia LeFay. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley and by the author.

Wesley Uhler is a famous chef who has won countless awards and is the king of his kitchen. People pay hundreds of dollars to dine in his posh restaurant. He has also been in love with Maxwell Emerson for the last four years. But they keep it secret because that’s what Max needs. But then everything changed the

“Complicated love stories are the best kind,” but for me The Anatomy of Jane was not complicated at all. The beauty of their story is that there is not one without the other; Max, Wes and Jane go hand in hand. I fell in love with them based on how they loved each other.

To be completely honest, I wasn't sure what to expect with I picked this one up - I've not delved into much MM or MMF, at all. But being in the mist of a massive book funk, I decided to take a risk and try something out of my norm. And let me tell you, I am so glad I did. I'm not sure what it was about this story that worked for me, perhaps it was simply a fascination with such a taboo element, but I was hooked to my kindle.

Even though Jane was about four years late to the party, she fit right in and was perfect for their trio. She was broke, she had huge debt and a loner, a fighter, mouthy and loved Wes and Max.

“I wasn’t a good girl

Well, the level of hotness was off the charts.

Anatomy of Jane is the first time JJ McAvoy writes under the pen-name Amelia LeFay to separate genres. It is the first part in a MMF contemporary romance duet. It’s not a triangle, but a menage. She brings the usual effortless storytelling and paired it with some seriously scorching characters. A fast moving, thought out and very sexy read.

Maxwell Emerson and Wesley Uhler have been secret lovers for four years. Secret because Max is in the spotlight since he comes from a family deep in the heart of the political world, and being gay/bisexual is practically unheard of.

Jane Chapman's an orphan who grew up in the foster care system. Taking care of herself is second nature and alone is the only thing she knows. Then there's two sexy alpha males, Maxwell Emerson and Wesley Uhler. Max and Wes are together but not openly out as a couple. Max comes from a wealthy and prominent family with highly political aspirations. Max's best known as a TV anchorman and being gay or bisexual is the last thing his family wants.

“Complicated love stories are the best kind.”

When I first started to read “The Anatomy of Jane,” I didn’t know what to expect. It was actually the first ménage book I have read and I really enjoyed it, loved it in fact. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. I only stopped to try and get some sleep and go to work.

If you like ménage this book could definitely be for you. Two sexy, leading men, along with a sweet heroine, ready and willing to take them on, a little angst, strong love and heartache and you have the making of a good, entertaining, steamy book.

Max and Wesley are in a secret, long-term relationship. They share the same household and they are deeply in love with each other. They are both successful and at the top of their profession. Max comes from a prominent, wealthy political family, and Wes

This book didn’t meet my expectations.  It  blew  right past them.

The author has absolutely stunned me with this addictive, enjoyable yet intense, deep and steamy romance. I was a little apprehensive reading this because ménage doesn’t appeal to me at all. I don’t believe you can love two people equally. Therefore, I LOATHE love triangles, sharing or whatsoever. But I’m a fan of Ms. McAvoy aka Amelia Lefay so I sucked it up and dived in. Best. Decision. Ever.

It was insanely good. Bright and bold. It's not just erotic, crazy ride, but also emotional, suspenseful and fast-action gameplay. With this trio you can not be bored, and for sure it's extremely hot and very passionate.

For me it is the love triangle story, but it is one in which three people are together in one love relationship. You may be surprised how such a non-traditional relationship, despite the obvious problems with acceptance and judgment of the other people, works well and gives a fee

Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books

In my mind three people in a relationship is one too many. That doesn't change the fact that I enjoyed the hell out of this one. This story had sweet parts, emotional parts, and some light-hearted ones too. This was my first menage and it won't be my last.

Jane has always been on her own. She grew up in a crack house and always had to fend for herself. The only person who comes close to family is Allen - he grew up with her likewise in the foster system.

The Anatomy of Jane started hot and fun. But as it progressed, it surprisingly revealed itself as a deep and meaningful story that touches real and still very current issues.
It turned out more than I was expecting; intense due to complexity of the cast life style (Polygamy) and complicated because one of the guys couldn't come out as gay.


The story started with Jane showing that she is a person who doesn't hold back.
Gotta love Jane.
