Publisher's Summary

The secluded rental cabin offers Jim Traynor exactly what he needs: peace and quiet to finish his latest book, and maybe a little inspiration for a new series. There’s even a little dog named Buster to provide an adorable distraction. Buster’s owners, however, bring distraction of a very different kind. Jim’s determination to focus on his work doesn’t stop his delicious fantasies, but each new encounter with Julian and Michael makes him forcefully aware of the aching desire building within him.

Julian and Michael have built a wonderful life together. Then Jim’s arrival rocks it to its foundations. Julian is drawn to the quiet writer, aware of an intensifying connection between them. Michael feels that same magnetic pull, but remains haunted by the past: They’ve been down this road before. Reaching the end of it broke Julian’s heart, something Michael will not let happen again. He strives to be the strong one, but with every passing night, he’s falling for Jim just as hard as Julian is.

Both men know Jim can only hurt them if they let him in. The trouble is, Jim might already be through that door. If he is, the day will come when he’ll walk right back out of it.

Only this time, how many hearts will be broken?

Amazing daddy kink, poly romance!

Great storyline, beautiful writing and wonderful, well-rounded MC’s. It’s been a while since I’ve read an mmm romance I’ve loved this much. I really liked that the characters were a bit older than we normally get. These are mature, intriguing and charming men with quite a bit of life experience under their belt. The relationship builds up very gradually, starting from a physical attraction but with a great emotional connection as well between all three men. I loved that even though Michael and Julian have been together for years, and quite happily so, you never get the impression that Jim is a third wheel or somehow less than. Michael and Julian were simply looking for a bit of fun, and Jim is persuaded to go along, but then, of course, they really click and deeper feelings develop…but will all three of them will be willing to take a risk on a new love, a new life? I loved how gradually and absolutely genuine all of it felt, very nuanced writing and heartfelt emotions.

Narration: a wonderful listen! I very much enjoyed John Solo's performance! He's such a great narrator and brilliantly captures all the little nuances in pacing and emotion to really bring to life the main characters. I think he did a great job in creating voices for all three of them.

Bears in the Woods

When Jim decides to take some time for himself in a secluded cabin, he never thought that his life would change. Meeting Julian and Michael sparks something in Jim. Soon emotions come into play and feelings are on the line. Will the three find a way to come together or will this chance pass them by?

I enjoyed this book and its characters. Julian and Michael are a great couple and the love that they have for each other is strong. I loved the way they shared and wanted Jim in their lives. It was nice to see the three find their way. Each man has a strong personality, yet they fit together nicely. The three are good together and soon hard decisions need to be made. Love is strong between the three, but can they take the plunge and risk their hearts? I loved seeing the relationship grow and deepen between them. The author weaves a good story and narrator John Solo does a god job of bringing the characters and their emotions to life and I was quickly immersed in story.

The 3 bears

I mostly enjoyed this book, but it’s marketed as having more detail than what the author included. Three guy enjoy winter in the woods, and they have a cute dog. It’s a low angst book that ends happily. It’s nice.

But nice is all I found it. Even though though the “main” main character is Jim, I kind of thought he remained a bit of a blank slate, so it was easy to root for him but hard for me to attach to him.

Steam: Medium low. Maybe medium? but the marketing is for MMM extra steamy, so when, after finally getting to the first romp in the boudoir, we jump scenes by a couple weeks, I felt there was too much detail missing. I’m trying not to be too hard on the author for not meeting my expectations since I didn’t commission this, I just expected more action.

Narration: No complaints. I’m happy that there are narrators who treat sexier romances seriously so I can listen to them and complain they aren’t sexy enough.

Bears, Oh My!

This story is a fun tale of meeting up and finding out it works for everyone. I like that Julian and Michael are solid in their relationship which probably makes them more ready to bring Jim into their hearts and lives. Jim has to take his own risks to embrace what is happening. A feel good story all around.

I listened to the audio version and really enjoyed the reading.

Sweet and Sexy Listen

I liked this story about two bears and a cub making connection. I enjoy love stories featuring older more mature characters, with life experience and baggage, while still taking a leap and falling in love. Jim Julian and Michael were perfect age for such a story and it was my favorite part as well as hot and sexy times they shared together. I admit I am not a big fan of age play and Daddy/boy threw me for a minute, but didn't impact my enjoyment of the audiobook. Narration was very good and overall this book was a great listening experience.

Best Bears

I enjoyed listening to this story. Our "bears" were a couple of heartbroken guys trying to fill a void. Jim is a man that focuses mainly on his work until he meets Michael and Julian and then he starts to see how much is missing from his life. These men coming together was sweet, even though there were times they frustrated me. I would definitely recommend this.

Sexy mmm!

Low-angst mmm story where a married couple, Julian and Micheal, are used to invite men in their bed. What has always just been a bit of fun becomes so much more when they meet Jim. None of them is prepared for the onslaught of emotions and the depth of their feelings. Furthermore Jim has never really been in a relationship, let alone one with two men...
I loved that the story is about older men, Julian and Michael are in their early fifties and Jim is 36.
John Solo always adds that certain something to every story he narrates!

Hot, well written and a feel-good book

Hot, well written and a feel-good book

I loved this story, it was heartfelt, and the way they brought in a new lover was just endearing. The characters are well written. The story developed well along with the relationships.
We get a HEA in the end.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and the excellent narration from John Solo helped. Although, like usual, I sped up the audio, and I listened at 1.35 speed on audible.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit (as every time), to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

An amazing MMM romance!

I love to hear the narration of my favorite books as a way to reread them again and again, so when I got the opportunity to hear the performance of this amazing book made by one of my favorites narrators, I couldn't stop until the very end. Mr Solo made an outstanding job with the wonderful characters in the book managing beautifully all the dynamic between them, the few angst situations and the little kink involved. I got caught by the intense chemistry between Julian, Michael and Jim and how everything was solved in this very cleaver plot written by Ms Wells. The story, the characters and of course, Mr Solo, made this book one of the best I heard this month.

Such a great ménage story!

First thing: I have to say how much I love this cover and how much it fits the book. I don’t always pay attention to book covers because I only read ebooks or listen to audiobooks, but this one is outstanding.

I actually read this book earlier in the month and then got the chance to listen to and review the audiobook. Other than commenting on John Solo’s fantastic performance of this audiobook, there isn’t much else I can say that I didn’t already say in my original review of the ebook. John is one of my go to audiobook performers. He doesn’t just read the books, he actually performs them and I think he is a great voice actor.

Note: at the end of this audiobook there is an excerpt chapter for Finn’s Fantasy. The copy I listened to started up the excerpt immediately after “the end” was spoken for Bears in the Woods with no introduction to let you know what was coming. Not a big deal but I thought it’s worth a mention.

Original review:

It’s been a while since I’ve read an MMM book. Actually, I think the last one was also a K.C. Wells story. 😊 I haven’t read a book of hers yet that I didn’t love and Bears in the Woods is no exception.

I really enjoy reading books where one of the MCs is an author. I think it’s because I figure that there’s at least some little nugget of the book that’s letting me look into the real life of an author. 😊 I know from following a lot of authors on Facebook that writers block is a feared and real-life dilemma that many have faced.

Jim Traynor has been writing the same characters for many books and he’s ready for a change, but first he must wrap-up this last one. He’s rented a cabin near Yosemite National Park so he can have the solitude he craves. He’s not looking for any kind of relationship, in fact hasn’t ever had one because he doesn’t want to deal with the fallout if it ends.

Julian and Michael Ingram own the cabin that Jim has rented for a month; that’s longer than anyone has ever rented one before. They are curious about him but also don’t want to disturb him; their cute little dog, Buster, has other ideas. I love Buster and how he is woven into this story. Julian and Michael are a committed, married couple but they also sometimes allow a third man to play with them. They both get a zing when they meet Jim and want to see if he’s interested in them.

There is so much feeling in this book and it comes through loud and clear in KC’s writing. Her description of the area made me want to visit there again (it’s been over 50 years). It’s a super sexy and steamy story but I could also feel the love between the three guys. I also loved Jim’s agent and how she handled his revelation and helped him with his decision to join Julian and Michael. The book has a great ending but I wouldn’t mind reading another story about them after they’ve been together for a year or so.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me at my request but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

Wonderful Story & Listen🎧 A Smoking🔥Hot Trifecta!

I loved everything about this audiobook, from K.C. Wells’ wonderful writing style to the fabulous characters and storylines she created to perfectly casted narration performed by John Solo. The story is original and entertaining, it grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it the entire book. I adored the three lead characters, they are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. Jim Traynor, a writer, rents a cabin in the woods for a month with hopes to finish his latest book. He was happy to hear there were no other renters around ensuring he will be getting the peace and quiet that he wants. But then he meets the owners of resort, Julian and Michael, and their dog Buster. Julian and Michael are both artists, they moved to a more remote area, have their own studios to work in and rent cabins to visitors. They also like to invite a third into their relationship, one they both agree on, it has worked for them for many years, well mostly worked. Both of them liked what they saw in their new visitor and even though they were not sure if he was gay they sill invited him over for dinner and cocktails. Jim accepts the invitation and the three have an easy conversation, after finding out what he writes Michael fanboys on him. The three hit it off, Julian and Michael agree to give it a go with Jim, Jim explains that he is gay but has been celibate for a while, after learning what the two want he is interested. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted and contains a whole lot of heart and steamy romance too. K.C Wells thank you for another enjoyable and entertaining novel.

🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, John Solo is a bear of a man, he is perfectly casted to bring these characters and their story to life. He does an awesome job portraying the characters, giving each their own distinct voice and personality, making it easy to follow along and tell who is who. I love how he takes each role and makes it his own, sounding believable and just as I picture the characters to sound. He sets the perfect tone for the story, captures all the character’s emotions and projects them into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the fabulous listen🎧

Sweet and sexy MMM romance!

Michael and Julian lease out cabins near Yosemite. It’s a place where they can work on their sculpture and painting and indulge their open relationship. When author, Jim Traynor, rents one of the cabins to complete his latest book, he doesn’t count on forming a relationship with the two men. This was sweet, tender, and sexy as hell! I liked how realistically KC Wells laid out the open relationship and how naturalistically it moved from no-strings-attached to something more profound. This was a much richer story than I was expecting, with interesting subplots about Jim’s lack of sexual confidence and his career crossroads, and Michael and Julian’s hurt from a previous relationship. John Solo narrates the audio superbly, perfectly balancing the steam and vulnerability of the men involved. My first KC Wells book, but definitely not my last!
