At forty, Lan Davis is looking for his damned picket fence and 2.5 kids. What he doesn’t expect is instead of a wife in the picture, his mind keeps conjuring up images of two men. One, his partner in the force, who is as straight as they came, the other an ex, who he’d hurt but never forgot.

After an incident leaves Lan injured, the two men rally around him… only maybe th

This one wasn't so bad. I kinda liked it. Sorta wished I had gotten more though. Like a sequel to this one where we get to see the men out and about as a couple. Though it was a bit predictable... The book centers around bisexual -mostly women - detective, Lan Davis (40), his straight-as-they-come partner in the force, Parker ‘Park’ Wilding (36) and Lan's ex-boyfriend who he emotionally crushed ten years ago, a paramedic and gay, Easton ‘East’ Ravel (29). When Lan gets hurt, they both rally aro

Story – 3.5 stars

This was more enjoyable than I expected. Great humor and swoony moments. I loved how conflicted Parker was and how it took time for him to accept his attraction to Lan and Easton. It made the gfy more believable.

Of course, there were OTT and eye-roll inducing moments in the story. I’ve come to expect that with any story involving a motor cycle club. It didn't matter that the main characters weren’t actual members of the club.

I’m very conflicted about this book. On the one hand there were quite a few things that bothered me. But I still had this urge to continue reading and I couldn’t quite put it down. Because I did like all three men in this MMM, I have a hard time rating this. The issues I had were mostly with the actions of one of the men and the people surrounding the three guys.

Easton was a 19 year old college student when he met 30 year old cop Lan. They dated for two months and were p

I couldn’t get enough of this story, I just didn’t want to put it down!!! 😁 I absolutely loved the building chemistry between Parker and his need to be with his best friend Lan and Easton. His reluctant attitude made the story that much more believable and exciting, and there was so much more to this book than the building relationship between the three men.
This is one author I want to read more of, I just wish there was more M/M books she’s written. 😉

3.5 stars - I quite enjoyed this .., while there were some long winded moments and replay / repeated thoughts, I actually didn’t mind the dynamic between Lan, East and Parker. This trio was a long time coming with much history and many secrets. I liked the Aussie influence and could picture each location which helped me connect with characters even more. While there was a lot going on I’m glad I stuck with it.

4 stars.

This was not my first MMM romance therefore I had a bit high expectations with this one. I did enjoy it and thought it was explosively hot with a lot of enjoyable moments.

But I thought it could've used more pages with the characters getting to know one another and as a couple with 3 people being involved. What works for them and what doesn't.

Out of the Blue was my first novel by the author but will not be my last!

No rating for now. The narration was enjoyable, but I didn’t enjoy the story as much this time. I don’t know if it’s my mood or what. Since I know I’ll probably listen again, I’ll rate it then.

I will not even bother listing the ways I hated this. Just know that when I looked at the page count and realised that I still had 2 hours to go I tapped out. Life's too short to finish a book that sucks the joy out of life.

So, this story …. wow. Incredibly well done. The intricacies of a polyamorous relationship could have been a bit more explored, but that did not take away from the overall story-line and it was really sexy so #WIN all around! This is my first read by Lila Rose but I can tell you a Hawks MC #bingeread is about to happen! I found myself completely captivated and invested in the story. It’s fiction, but very realistically portrayed and again really sexy! I must give props to the author because she made sure to ...more

The misogyny in this book was obnoxious. I’m not sure what the deal is with this author, based on the huge number of other characters with detailed back stories - I’m guessing this is a MF author crossing over. If so, this reinforces my bias against MF romance. (Spare me the lecture, please and thank you). Ugh.

This was a pretty good read that I liked. Lan Davis is looking to settle down. After an incident leaves Lan injured, the two men rally around him only maybe they shouldn’t have. It seems a medicated Lan is a truthful one. Parker Wilding is pissed at the world. His anger builds when his partner refuses medical care after an attack. Instead, Lan entrusts his neighbor to take care of him a guy Parker doesn’t trust. While he’s aware they share a history when the past is revealed, the truth shocks th ...more

This is my first read of this author. The book isn't part of a series but as far as I can tell, it it loosly tied to her MC series. For me that was a nice surprise. I picked the book based on the synopsis and then got rough MC guys on top of that. Win!

I liked the way the story unfolds. Lan is partners with Parker as a detective and he has a romantic past with Easton that broke both their hearts. Circumstances bring the men together and things just roll from there.

Not only was this book hot, it also had a great story line and amazing characters. Lila Rose definitely knows how to write amazing books. I can't get enough of them.

I thought this one would be HOT based on the synopsis but not so much!
It really should have been advertised as a spin-off or part of a series. There were so many characters and storylines that were introduced that if you hadn’t read the authors MC series you would be confused (like I was).

Holy Hell are Lan Davis, Parker Wilding, and Easton Ravel beyond HAWT when they’re together, and while it takes them a bit to all get on the same page and realize exactly what they want from one another, once all three of them go all in, the only thing that can prevent them from moving forward as a threesome is each others’ fears and insecurities.

It’s clear from the start of Out of the Blue that there is a lot more involved in a menage relationship than sexual logistics, especially when it come

I may come back and tweak this review once my head stops spinning and I can process my thoughts better. Book hangover be fucked LOL ..

Where to even start though?.


-Two have history.
-Two work together
-Two think their future is with a women and one is strictly dickly.

Easton was left heartbroken with how things ended with Lan. Despite being hurt so badly he still held a soft spot years later for his lost love.

Lan never forgot how shitty he was to the one

First a confession, I have read every book in this series and absolutely love them all. Lila did not disappoint this time. A story that bounced along with some intense, some fun and some outright laugh out loud moments. It’s a ‘can’t put down’ book as you’re rooting for the three main characters and have to see what happens next.
I loved Lan, Easton and Parker. Each was different, and each grabbed your sympathy in different ways. Lila, you did one heck of a job to keep them all so likeable.

This book deserves a ten flaming hot stars. A story that was so hot that the sweat literally dripped from my skin. Out of the Blue is about confronting love, moving outside of the so called normal and not denying what you feel for someone. Parker has always been a favourite of mine and to have this story that delves deeper into the man that lies beneath the growly exterior, was all that I could hope for and more. Three men who are at different stages of their acceptance of what they feel and who ...more

3.5 of 5 Hearts

The blurb and cover instantly sucked me into this book. I did not realize it was part of a series though. There were many others in the book that I felt like I should know, and I lost at times.

There are parts of this story I absolutely loved. Easton Ravel is by far my favorite character in this book. His banter with the others and being able to take charge when needed really pulled me into his character. Lan had put him through hell years ago, but he instantly went into that sex

This review was copied from my romance novel review blog: romanticallyinclinedreviews.com

I was a little discombobulated at first keeping track of three male perspectives, but reading the little name at the top of each chapter (something you're supposed to be doing anyways) helped me keep things straight. And, after a while, I got to know each of their charming personalities and it got even easier.

Easton, Lan, and Parker were all so different from one another, each with th

What I liked
Sex was hot. Different character traits mashing together was hot. But yet again this was my first MMM, so I might be biased.

What I hated
Honestly tho, the characters had so much potential but got fucked over with inconsistencies and bad writing.

The characters in this book were out of character most of the time.

Stupid inner dialogue melodrama. They all sounded the same at one point since everyone was freaking out about the same thing. It's kinda hard to imagine when they are suppo

I enjoyed reading this book, it was not what I was expecting... at all. I went into this book thinking it was going to be quick, hot, steamy and very sexy. It was all that and so much more! Did I mention it was damn HOT!

I adored all the characters, although I did gather that it was part of another world that has already been established by this author. I loved Lan, Parker and Easton, they were all great and I liked how the author made Parker's character very realistic. He had trouble coming to terms

Shelves: mm, could-not-finish
The writing is stiff, the editing is disjointed (or is it the other way around), the MCs are nearly indistinguishable (except one swears all the time, another giggles, and the third broods), the secondary characters are all one character with different names, and the plot is beyond ridiculous. Can't believe I got as far as I did with this one.

OUT OF THE BLUE was my first read by Lila Rose, but this girl can hardly resist a ménage romance – let alone one with a promising blurb like this one: one guy being seemingly straight, another being forty not the usual twenty – just to name a couple. I was instantly drawn to it and went into it with quite high expectations. I want my ménage stories to be super steamy and combustible, but I also need a believable bond between the three characters – their love has to feel real without anyone left ...more

I must say, the cover for this book drew my attention straight away, it’s gorgeous and so very hot! Then I went on to read the blurb and I was sold. I adore a story about a polyamorous relationship; how they meet, the intricacies of how they work, what each person brings to the relationship to be what the others need, I find it fascinating, BUT, it’s got to be done well and the trio have to all have equal importance within it. Here it was done really well. After a rocky start, with hurt and regr ...more

Lan and Easton dates briefly 10 years ago until Lan broke Easton’s heart. Now 10 years and a lot of life later, both men end up living next to each other.

Easton saves his new neighbor from what he thought was a typical break in, not knowing it was Lan and what he just stepped into. Enter Hawks MC and Alan’s work partner Parker.

Parker is a detective and Lan’s partner. He recognizes Easton but doesn’t trust him at first. Both Lan and Parker are involved with the Hawks MC so when Lan i

WOW Just WOW.. I have read a few of Lila’s books and I have loved them all.. this one no different.. It is however my first M/M/M book.. Good lord this woman can write a HOT AF sex scene. I think I may have messaged her a few times too..
Out of the Blue by Lila Rose is absolutely amazing, it is a standalone mmm romance novel. In this one we get the story of Lan, Easton and Parker.

Out of the Blue is not the first gay romance book in the Hawks MC series, but it is – by far – the very best. I would even go that far and say it’s one of the best books in the whole series (and I loved them all).
First of all, normally I don’t really enjoy relationships with more than two persons, because it’s a lot harder to give the persons the right amount of attention and not leave one of them out, but the author managed to interweave all

I never miss a Lila Rose book, and this one is no different. The dynamics between the three characters was done perfectly. It wouldn’t be easy bringing in a straight guy into a gay relationship, but Lila Rose managed to make me believe it could be done. The emotions from Easton hurt my heart. Parker, who has been one of my favourite characters from previous books ( I still love killer more) was great and l loved hearing what was going through his head. And LAN .... what a growly hunk of possessi ...more
