Two cops walk into a bar. Mason, the bartender, waits for the punch line, because no way in hell are these ridiculously hot men real cops. They're straight out of a cop-fetish fantasy. But he quickly learns that Jack and Gray are the real deal, and they want him in the worst way.
What starts as a night of hot, three-way sex becomes a lot more. The two cops fulfill Mason's submissive fantasies, but they also meet a more basic need: comfort. They want to take care of Mason, to offer him unconditional friendship, but their concern for him unnerves Mason more than even the kinkiest sex.
To find happiness with his new partners, Mason must change his belief that love is as much a fantasy as a pair of gorgeous, handcuff-wielding cops landing in his bed.

I'm an unabashed fiction fan: mostly M/M, Romance, Erotica, Suspense, Thrillers, Action, NA/YA genres.
Greg Boudreaux (the new audio identity Greg Tremblay is using for steamier erotic fiction) delivers a solid performance. I liked his voice choices for the characters, and Greg knows how to deliver the heat for the sexy times.
This is a steam filled, unconventional romance between established couple, Jack and Gray, and bartender, Mason. Told entirely from Mason's POV the relationship starts off, for Mason, as one hot night, but evolves into so much more as feelings grow deeper.
Mason, who has been in a ménage once before, is leery of his deepening feelings for Jack and Gray because of the way he was burned before and consequently he does a lot of running. There's a lot of non-communication from Mason which drove me nuts.
Mostly, I wish I could have gotten Jack and Gray's POVs too.
I really wanted to like this. Hell, I was all set to LOVE this. I've been looking for a great ménage story and this came VERY highly recommended. I don't know...maybe it was timing or mood, but I didn't like it as much as I hoped I would.
I wish I liked it more, especially as it has all the elements I usually love, but with the exception of the communication issues that drove me entirely insane for a quarter of the story, I only solidly liked it. It was okay...but not the spectacularly hot romance I thought it was going to be.
Bottom Line: This has steamy moments, some D/s play, an emotional connection between the lovers, and it's a sweet, ménage romance with some angst.
Avid reader, reviewer, blogger and budding author.
It's definitely one I will listen to again.
Gray loosing his temper and throwing his glass at the wall, then what came after.
As Greg Tremblay, yes. Greg Boudreaux's supposed to be his spicier side, and boy was this book spicey!!
Gray! Good lord that man's attitude, persona and voice. Yowza!!
I love the opening line for this book, two cops walk into a bar...
Jack and Gray walk into Nathan's bar to see if the employees have seen anything suspicious. Several businesses in the area have been robbed as of late, and they are walking the beat to try to find someone that has seen something. What they find is the shy, sexy bartender, Mason. Over the next few weeks Jack and Gray spend a lot of their off time in the bar. Mason can't help but stare, appreciatively. He picks up on subtle touches and signs that convey Jack and Gray are partners in both their personal and professional lives. Mason doesn't even pick up on the not so subtle stares that Jack and Gray toss his way.
Jack and Gray finally put the move on Mason and the three of them have a mind blowing night together. Mason assumes it was meant to be a one-time thing, but when they ask him to stay, and them Jack makes breakfast, Mason is slightly bewildered. It would be so easy for Mason to slide right into a relationship with the two gorgeous Cops, but a past similar experience did not end well, so Mason is hesitant. Regardless of his hesitancy, Mason quickly realizes he can't say no to them. The three of them settle into what dangerously resembles a relationship, though the words are never spoken. When the three men start to feel something more than just friendly towards each other, Mason freaks out and runs, convinced that this time will be no different than the last.
Let me just get it out of the way, the angst and lack of communication for a good two thirds of the book drove me infrigginsane! These were three grown ass men, at any point in time Mason could have voiced his feelings, so could Gray. So that aspect of the story bothered me. That being said, I loved everything else. It was interesting to listen as Gray and Jack took Mason to a place he didn't even realize he wanted to be. How the three of them complimented each other in a way. Mostly, Mason is scared shitless that if he voices his feelings out loud, they won’t be returned and he’ll be heart broken.
Gray is the obvious Dom in the relationship, but there were times when even Gray needed to let things go and Jack took charge. There was a lovely curve ball when it came to the schematics of the threesome, who was where and such, and it really gave the book more depth in my opinion. The story was narrated by Greg Boudreaux (the spicier side of narrator Greg Tremblay) and he did such an amazing job with this book. There’s no question that he has probably the most versatile palate when it comes to audio books, but I thought he went above and beyond for this book. I found myself at times just sitting frozen as I listened to Mason, the tones and inflections that made his confusion real somehow, I almost cried for him. Then there was that growl for Gray that made me want to be on the receiving end of… you get the picture.
If you are a fan of the Author, the narrator, or super sexy threesome stories, you should give this title serious consideration. To spite the fact I wanted to bang Mason and Gray’s heads against the wall every now and then, I really enjoyed this audio.
I love to read any genre and most topics. I like diversity and engaging characters. I write, garden, cook,craft and chill with my furbabies
This story is well narrated. Greg Boudreaux has a calm relaxing voice. It is easy to follow the story the way he tells it. His Inflictions of Mason's view is extremely well done and hot. He also Inflicts enough that Grey and Jack' s voice is easily discernable from Mason's.Greg makes the story interesting and smoking hot. I don't recommend listening to this in public without good esrphones.!
I was kind of bored during listening to this book. The story could have been 30min long and had the same storyline without missing anything. I Think it is because i actually like the stories to have another storyline Than just the sexscenes and this one doesnt. Taking out the sex scenes you May have about 20 min left if even that. Sure the Threesome sexscenes are actually hot so if that is the only thing u Want out of your book - go for it. But if you like your MCs to have a life and characters outside the bedroom find something Else.
This m/m sexscapade, minor romance is the epitome of a policeman fetish tale. The sex didn't start immediately but about an hour into the story. But once it got started it was pretty constant. And all of it was menage, 3-way sex. I'm a female and consider some m/m sex hot, but the sex in this story was just ok. But for those who like BDSM (spanking, commanding) and 3-way sex this story would probably be seen as pretty hot. And if you're into policeman, then you're likely to absolutely love this tale.
All 3 main male characters—Mason (college dropout & bartender), Jack and Grey (2 police officers/partners, closeted lovers & roommates)—were likeable. And the narrator did a good job of portraying them all. The difference in voices was little but enough.
Mason's nervousness & disbelief was endearing...initially; then it grew tiring. Similarly, his continuous internal struggles and vacillating was a bit overdone. And his quickly falling in love, especially only based on sex, was reminiscent of first, immature teen love and not a man in his mid-to-late 20s. Then the drama pinnacle that brought everything to a head (no pun intended) in the story was a bit manufactured but plausible considering the small police mystery in the story. And it brought the close of the story to a good end, one where everything was not answered, not made easy, and some aspects were left open-ended. That was more realistic, hopeful, but not perfect. The possible struggles and problems were acknowledged, which was a nice change.
Mason is a bartender and gets picked up by established couple Gray and Jack. Both Jack and Gray are pretty dominant and Mason is to be more the more submissive partner in their three-way relationship.
At first Mason is reluctant to get involved with an established couple because he’s been hurt in the past. But… Gray and Jack are very persistent, the sex is hot and both guys seem sincere when they convince him they both care about Mason.
There is a bit of BDSM in this… not a lot, but enough that if this isn’t your thing, you might skip it. Mason is very submissive.
I liked Jack and Gray and found them funny and sexy. I didn’t love Mason… he was a bit to insecure and frustrating for me to find him as an equal in this threesome.
Overall, I thought it was a fairly good ménage story and it caught my interest enough to pick up the second book in the series.

So sneaky - Greg Boudreax- heh heh - well I think we all know that's Greg Tremblay narrating this story - so I'm sure there's some legal reason for the "disguise"... but you know he's one of my all time favorite narrators (and a terrific person, too!) so of course he knocks this out of the park! He gives all the guys a unique voice and is so good with the emotions and even the somewhat cheesy dialog (the boys do some pretty "porny" role playing ...). I loved listening to this and think it's a great way to experience this book. I hope he does the sequel!
I read this book before and was excited to see it come to Audible. I enjoyed reading this book, but listening was so much better.
please know that i am an extremely picky listener of audiobooks. there have been several that i've abandoned even though i've loved the story because i just couldn't listen to the narration.
so i've now read this book and listened to it and i will say it's absolutely better in audio than just reading it. greg did an amazing job bringing out all the emotions in these characters that i just didn't feel as well when reading this originally. he performed this book perfectly! i can't wait to listen to more performances by him!
i liked the story - triads are hard to pull off and be believable instead of a couple experimenting with a third. i liked the slow build up and the teasing looks and conversations they shared over time. mason's hesitation was so much more believable hearing it vs. reading it. i really felt how much he wanted this men but was afraid of getting tossed aside when they were through with him. the emotions felt during their sex scenes were really much better in audio format. i felt the power of their connection that i didn't necessarily feel when i read it.
i love how the three of them fit together and how they each had separate roles in the relationship. i truly believed they were three parts of the whole.
this is a short listen - about 4.5 hours - and definitely leaves you wanting to listen to book 2 at the end! i can't wait for book 2 to be released on audio!
