Of Dark and Bright: Dark Horse Series, Book 3

Jeff, Evan, and Dan have been living happily together for the past two years. They still have problems, especially between Evan and Dan, but they're mostly able to convert the interpersonal disagreements to sexual tension - and then resolve it - so nobody's complaining. Then Dan's long-lost sister shows up seven months pregnant and on the run from the law, and the situation goes from complicated to overwhelming.

Publisher's Summary

This is a sequel to Out of the Darkness.

Jeff, Evan, and Dan have been living happily together for the past two years. They still have problems, especially between Evan and Dan, but they're mostly able to convert the interpersonal disagreements to sexual tension - and then resolve it - so nobody's complaining. Then Dan's long-lost sister shows up seven months pregnant and on the run from the law, and the situation goes from complicated to overwhelming. Jeff and Evan want to help, but with Evan fearful for his own sister's safety and Jeff struggling to keep his health issues under wraps, they're a little distracted. As Dan's sister struggles with her past, Evan's seems intent on gambling with her future.

With emotions and family ties pulling them in different directions, the threesome have to hold together - or the people they love may tear them apart.

    Story
    "Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance"
    What made the experience of listening to Of Dark and Bright the most enjoyable?

    This is less than half the length on audio than the previous book but still just as good.

    This chapter in the boys lives is a lot more melancholy than the first two books. I don’t think anyone that reads this series can fail to fall in love with Jeff. As I have said before he is the glue that holds the three together and an integral part of the relationship. At the start of this book he is questioning whether he is of any use to Dan and Evan and whether they would be better off without him. His self doubt is a little bit heart breaking. When he also decides to keep his health worries to himself he is not in a very good place.

    Dan and Evan are just the same. One minute everything is fine and the next they are behaving like petulant 5 year olds and waiting for Jeff to sort them out. When Dans sister turns up after an absence of 15 years, 7 months pregnant, the sparks really fly. Evan is never slow to use his money to get what he wants and this situation proves no different. I have loved Evan throughout the three books but his behaviour in the barn when arguing with Dan left me wanting to smack him round the head, he was cruel and you begin to wonder whether the cracks are going to be too deep to fix this time.

    I cannot recommend this series enough. It is the very real life struggle of three men and a slightly unconventional relationship. It is not all sunshine and roses but when they get it to work it is fantastic. I felt the first time I read it that it would have been great to see another book, I felt it was left a little open ended, just my personal opinion. I became invested in Dan, Evan and Jeff and would love to see how life worked out for them.

    Narration
    Peter B Brooke did another excellent job. His strong point is still not the female voices but he can be forgiven that I think as he does the three main characters so perfectly.

    "Love the series "

    I'm in love with all the books in the Dark Horse series- even the short ones, which should also be in audio. This book is one of my top go to when I need something to ease the day, I've listened to ODAB so many times, I've lost count:) enjoy

    "Great 3rd Installment"

    I'm not sure if this is the end of the series, I think so. If so, it ended wonderfully. This is my favorite of the three Dark Horse books. Evan, Jeff and Dan continue to work on their relationship, but the unexpected arrival of Dan's criminal sister brings danger to their family. In addition Jeff's health issue brings the three together and they realize how much they mean to each other. The narrator continues to do a great job.

    "Another excellent installment of dark horse"

    Simply put, I haven't found a series that is this well written and narrated yet on audible. Love the premise of the story.
