2,5* upgrade because it was free.

This short story contains a very complex world and I was lost a few times.
In my eyes the story is to concentrated, and the relationship of the three men a little numb.

I know this meant to be just a novella, but the story just felt inconclusive and the ending is more of a HFN.

4.5 stars.

Dominick is one of the winged Phae race who suffers with a severe stutter. At his friend's wedding, he meets Lysander and Zachary, two foreigners who are instantly attracted to him and allow him to communicate with the Drachus sign language to remain at ease. Believing their affair is just a casual arrangement. Dominick fears their leaving, but Zachary has a surprise for both Dominick and Lysander that could bring them together forever or drive the trio apart.

Interspecies relationships can be complicated enough due to different customs and/or expectations, but add a severe speech impediment, different languages, and a variation of ideas about mating and you have a true challenge. I love the fact that all these factors were what made the three men struggle how to relate to each other, not the fact they were gay or trying to be a permanent triad. It all highlighted the fact this fantasy world is definitely very different from our current reality!

MMy Thoughts and Review:

This was a really sweet and original fantasy MMM romance novella. My first read by this author I found myself lost in a realm where different races and tribes of people have found themselves at peace with each other as well as with dragon kind. The hero and top MC of the story, Dominick, is best friends with the dragon, Buttercup who is the reason so many races of people have gathered in one place. Buttercup is marrying Thumper, another Dragon, and th

I liked the story and the concept of interracial couples trying to blend language barriers with allowing each individual to be comfortable in the relationship. I also really liked the concept of having to do something as seemingly ordinary as look for housing before the couple starts living together. It was a nice blend of fantasy with aspects of the modern world showing through.

Short and Sweet

This was such a sweet short novella. I thought the world sounded interesting, and I could see it being part of a fantasy series.

DNF at 51%. The novella was a hot mess. I've kept wondering if I'd missed a prequel with all the necessary background because I had no clue what's going on. Apparently the author expected us to juggle between deciphering an unfamiliar fantasy setting from offhand remarks and following the evolving relationship. Needless to say, it worked poorly. You don't have time and volume for a proper fantasy world building in a novella. The least you can do is to avoid throwing around random fantasy names w ...more
Dominick knows he can't turn down the honor of standing with his work partner during her mating ceremony. He is reluctant as he doesn't like to speak in front of people, but is thankful that it will be acceptable for him to use sign language during the event. But things change when he spies a dancer, Lysander, who grabs his attention and then is quickly introduced to Lysander's new friend Zachary. The attraction and chemistry between them is undeniable and is so much that Dominick finds himself ...more
