I gotta admit, I'm about sick of the millionaire/billionaire plot in romances. However, I throughly enjoyed the peek behind the curtain of professional classical musicians. I also throughly loved the look at a butler's life (that wasn't Downton Abbey influenced). I guess you would get use to having someone anticipate your needs and be semi-invisible while going about daily activities but as a middle class American, it feels creepy and stalkerish. But it was a fun look.

I'm not really fond of menage romance but I'm constantly reading stuff out of my comfort zone to expand my reading horizon. I'm not sure I could ever fathom the depth of emotion needed to be sexually involved with two men at one time (and believe me I'm not a prude when it comes to sex and several times I've dated two guys at the same time) but for me sex equals feelings not just the act. I loved that it was a novella as it's a great way to test drive a genre or new author for a reader. I felt like it was pretty slow going for the first third of the book and any book for me needs to move along at a fast pace early on or I won't finish it. I'm not talking about inst-love or sex as that puts me off too but the story was just a bit slow for me.

I felt that the story could have benefited from a bit more dialogue as I think this is a great way to get to know the characters. I want to see them not be told about them. It just didn't have enough meat (no pun here) to it. It might have helped if I'd read the earlier book in the series and I'll definitely pursue more by this writer. And I just went back and bumped up my rating to 3 1/2* from 3* cause I realized I liked it a bit more than I realized.
