After his stepfather nearly ruins both his family name and business, Damien Fiorenza becomes suspicious of everyone—except for his long-time partner, Ethan Lord. He doesn’t trust people in authority, much less the woman who weasels her way into his walled-up heart alongside his lover of fifteen years.

Ethan dislikes his empathic abilities, especially since they allow him to

What a relief to read an original take on the threesome trope. Three lives interwoven finally coming together. I don’t think I need to put a spoiler tag when I say that as that is rather the point of a book like this. I love books about true threesomes (not reverse harem)but I am often left feeling that they aren’t very original or realistic. Aside from the fact that 1character is empathetic
In the way of science fiction I felt that the book was very realistic especially the feelings that came a

I loved this story. I love ménage romances but it’s hard to know if they’ll be good without reading it first. Not every author does it right. I was pleasantly surprised and I will be reading more from this author. Shay meets Ethan during her interview and sparks fly. Ethan and Damien have just broken up so Ethan’s connection to Shay is unexpected but they don’t fight it. But Ethan wants both and Shay and Damien want to make him happy. What happens when they develop feelings for each other but th ...more

Super hot read read. Love comes in many shapes and sizes; this book shows how true that it is. This is a wonderful read with character with incredible dynamics. This play with many emotions and realistically includes insecurities and old hurts. This is a very well written story that is hard to put down.

I received an advanced copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an unbiased, honest review.

Lynn Burke has a way with writing MMF books that a lot of authors don't. As a reader, you get easily drawn into the story and just lose track of time. I really enjoyed this story of Damien, Ethan and Shaylia. It's emotional at times but a good book should always make you feel the emotions of the characters!! This does just that. Loved it and will be waiting for another book by Ms. Burke!

I picked this up because I love a good MMF romance and Ethan, Shaylia, and Damien's was a super read and a little different from the other books I have read. The plot was good and I liked all the characters I would get comfy for this one because once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down. It is a super read I really enjoyed it

Hold on to your jaws and make sure you have plenty of fans while reading this intense love triangle. Ethan, Shaylia, and Damien are unforgettable! Their friendship as couples will set the stage for an unexpected twist that may compromise years of trust, loyalty, and revenge.
I honestly couldn’t put this book down once I started it. I have a book hangover to beat s+. No apologies here, though, I adored the MMF fervor. It ticked my envy nerve on all levels. So good!!

Whaaaat? Talk about crazy hot, erotic and oh my god. The power dynamics in this story was really interesting. I loved how Ethan got to be the top with Shaylia and stay the erotic bottom with Damien. Love is not always just a singular person but who makes you complete.

Received and ARC from Author for Honest Review.
I Give this Books a 2.5/5 Stars, Listing as 2, it doesn’t meet my expectations for 3 Stars.

This is one of the very rare reviews, where I go on how I feel about this book and not include my ratings in different genre category list, in the making of my decision.
But ratings are at the bottom.

I truly loved the sound of this book, but it’s not at all what I thought it’d be.

Let’s just start with:

I enjoyed this story because it was very well written. You have three very well rounded characters. You get in depth looks into their lives and what makes them how they are now from things that happened in their pasts. You get in their heads. There is a good story line. How after fifteen years together, one member seems to take the other forgranted. How when broken up, they each find someone else to spend time with. How one member of the original couple realizes that they didn't treat the other ...more

★ Deliciously woven story ★

—>>> Damien has had complete control while single-handedly rebuilding his family’s business, as well as pride in control over his own emotions and control of his lover’s submission for fifteen years. Until Ethan drops a couple of bombs following a plea to hear the three simple words he wished to hear. Weary of beating against the wall surrounding Damien’s emotions, the timing was perfect for Shaylia’s honest and warm emotions, which wrapped this empath like a comfortin

A really emotional non-traditional romance.💞💖💞

Damien and Ethan have been partners for fifteen years but Ethan has finally reached his emotional breaking point and decides it's time to focus on him for a while instead. But Damien can't let him go even though Ethan has begun seeing their new secretary, Shaylia. Eventually, Ethan convinces both Shaylia and Damien to give their triad a chance and things seem to be heading in a good direction for all of them. That is until a blast from Damien and Sha

First time.

Well where to begin.....I've read plenty of menage books but never have I read one where the relationship started off MM & brought in the female, it's usually a MF bringing in another male so with that being said, I absolutely loved this book!! The love between Damien & Ethan was beautiful & I'm so happy he got his act together in the nick of time! Oh boy the plot twist was mind blowing!! I was honestly afraid there for a minute. Forgiveness really helps & it sure helped this threesom

I loved this book you will not put it down till you have read the very last word. The story was well written, flowed well and brought to life the story of Ethan, Shaylia, and Damien. Their intense love story will have you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The chemistry between these three is smoking hot. A must read and you will not be disappointed. I recommend this book.

This is a very good menage romance that was nice to read about. The couples in this book had a lot of trust issues and insecurities about the past. That it was making it hard to move on in the new relationship. I really liked the story line and characters. Will be happy to read more from this author.

Hot and steamy, emotional, slightly angsty goodness. I adored this book and the 3 main characters are perfect for each other. Grab a cold drink and be prepared for a great ride as this little group finds out if happily ever after is possible. Enjoy!

***I decided to review an ARC of this book.***

I enjoyed this passionate story! I really enjoyed Damien, Ethan and Shaylia's story! It's a bit different but a very good story. I love the plot and characters. Lynn Burke does a good job with this genre. This story is well written with some angst, passion and so much more.

I love this story. Sometimes we need to give a relationship a break and give each other a chance to figure out what's important. Being in a relationship is about being open about your feelings.

This story teaches you that love and understanding. Shayla and Ethan are great together but when they join Damien you can feel their energy and love. This story is engaged and so much fun to read.

I was smiling and really enjoyed reading it.
