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!

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

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 d

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

Jane has had a hard life. She was born addicted to drugs and just dumped off. She knows how to take care of herself though and actually has a pretty decent brain in her head. She is working in a club as the manager when she finds out her boss (who she looks to as a brother) has drug her into a mess with some bad guys. So she walks out. She heads to another friend who has a cleaning business and starts cleaning an apartment. She has to sign a privacy disclosure but thinks since it's a swanky apar ...more

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.

“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.

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.

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.
