3.75 stars. I am both dissapointed and happy with this story.
I loved the relationship between these three men. I think the author did an amazing job at making this story realistic. I loved the angst, the passion and the heat. And there was a lot of heat. The build up of the relationship and the thoughts each had was worth the read.
I was unaware that this was not an MC read, I mean I knew it was going to be less about the MC and more about these characters, but the MC was almost non-existent. Also, I am incredibly greedy and wanted more of the relationship in the early part of the book. It took until 60% or so before the thought of the three of them become in issue; the story also ended abruptly and without flair. It just sizzles out, I don't know if that is for a "book 2" or not. I kept thinking I was going to get some action, but at last nothing.
Overall, it was a great story, but does gave me second guessing any future pre-orders. Just because I love an author, doesn't mean I will love each book. Thus book is worth reading, I just wanted a bit more.
Oh and one more thing. I don't know how others feel but this was almost a deal breaker for me: there is animal abuse mentioned a few times troughout this story and it was not lusted in a trigger warning. This is a hard limit for me and I am increadably dissapointed that I had to read about it without any warning. Bumner.
