really liked it

What She Needs is book three in Anne Rainey’s Cape May series, and the second book to feature Con, Devon and Tory. This is a look into a relationship that is not the norm even for modern society, but it has been one that works for these characters.

What does a woman in a committed ‘threelationship’ give her men for Valentine’s Day? That is the question bothering Tory as she tries to decide what to give Devon and Con. When Con surprises her with a weekend in Cancun for the three of them, something new is added to their triangle-a hefty dose of jealousy. Seems Con didn’t discuss the trip with Devon, and soon the tension is building. If Con can’t get over this new streak of possessiveness, it could cause major problems. He and Devon have been friends since childhood, and he doesn’t want to ruin what they have with Tory either. Can these three find a way past the jealousy and anger, to a new understanding? Can Con and Devon come to some kind of mutual agreement concerning their love for Tory? Can these three save their unconventional love, or will they bow to the norms of society?

I like how Ms. Rainey doesn’t portray it all as smooth sailing for these three. In any relationship, there are ups and downs, and when you add in a third personality, things are bound to get tense from time to time. I also found the actions and reactions of all three characters to be realistic and true to their personalities.

Tory is a great character, strong-willed and determined to make this ‘threelationship’ work. She can’t imagine her life without both Con and Devon in it, and will do what it takes to save what they have. She isn’t afraid of what others say, and she has a bit of sass in her. I like that about her.

Con and Devon are both hot and sexy, and neither wants to ruin what they have with Tory. Con didn’t even realize he was jealous until the ‘green monster’ reared its ugly head. I love how these two men complement each other, like two sides of the same coin. I liked that they both want to save their friendship, along with their relationship with Tory, and try to work out a mutually satisfactory solution that they can both agree to.

I enjoyed watching the two men come to terms with the jealousy they both feel, and the mature solution that Devon comes up with. Does everything go away and become perfect for Con, Devon and Tory? No, but just like in real life, a good compromise is reached, one that will ensure a happy ever after for all three of them. What do they decide? You will have to read What She Needs to find out.
