✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

This one was very different then what I was expecting in a good way! I really expected this one to be all drama after the way book 1 ended and while it did have lots of drama, it wasn't as much as I would have thought. I really like the way this one was handled even if I felt Breslin was a bit full of herself. This book was hot and filled with excitement and twists. This was my first Ashley Jade series and It won't be my last!

The narration was perfect!!! Both narrators did an awesome job on these characters.

Good but frustrating

I liked the story as it was a bit different then a lot of love triangles, threesomes or poly relationships. The 3 of them loved eachother as couples, so trying to make 3 wasn't a given. The female for me was HARD to take. She just was never willing to listen or give. I wanted to slap her silly. BUT, there was a huge piece of information she needed to hear from the guy from the past that could of made a difference, yet he never told her, then guy number 2 knows and he doesn't tell her. It drove me crazy. There was a lot for them to overcome in order to try to find their HEA, I honestly didn't think it was ever going to happen. It all comes to a head, lives are in danger, futures at risk and through this they finally get all the cards on the table and figure it out. I really loved the narration, Teddy ROCKS.

Deep character development

This is the second book. The character development is unbelievable and their bond deep. Teddy Hamilton’s voice on this series was incredible.

Great Ending!

This is what I call an ending that a great books deserves. As always great perfomance and will definately listen to this duet many times in the near future. I’m always interrested in what Ashely puts out there because its just worth the price point. Worth the credit for sure. 🙌🏼

A Beautiful Conclusion

This story has both haunted and sated me in ways that I struggle to comprehend. It’s a tale of feelings. Emotions that all of us are capable of and many of us fight with every breath to not acknowledge. This series goes for the unconventional and makes you bleed for it. With every wince, outcry, and tear... you feel yourself becoming a whole new person as you recognize yourself in Asher, Landon, and Breslin. Their flaws... are our flaws. Experiencing this story is like looking in a mirror; you see the worst parts of yourself in it. It makes the ugly crying that happens so much worse. And after Ashley Jade rips you apart? She lovingly stitches you back together at the end. She honestly might be one of the most emotionally abusive authors I’ve ever experienced (to her readers) outside of George RR Martin. But that is what makes her so real and so great as a writer. These books cannot lie. They cannot cover up the raw pain and confusion in a pretty bow. She just lets it all hang out there. At the end of it all... you feel changed. But in the best way.

As for the narrators... truly, it was Teddy Hamilton who stole the show. I knew nothing about him until this series (which I had already experienced on Kindle) but man that man is an actor, clearly. His voice both soothes the soul and ignites it. I now have another favorite narrator. It always amazes me when a fantastic narrator brings a story to life - and makes it even MORE than it already was. Teddy, this was your doing.

I will forever treasure these books for the rest of my life and can not wait for Complicated Parts! It will be a spin off of Preston and Kit... and man... I need Teddy to do Preston’s voice too!

Hotness with teeth

Thank you Ashley Jade! That is how you write a FULL, in depth, thoughtful, erotic menage. Thank you thank you for writing a real, meaningful menage story!! Please please do it again! Absolutely loved these books from start to finish!

I’m so sick of the strictly MFM variety. That’s a 1.5-some at best. I don’t know who decided to make this duet an audible but I’m SO glad they did!

I’m a professional who has to read and analyze for a living so I’m not overly excited to read more. T/f, I’m strictly a listener. So audible for god’s sake give your listeners real erotic menage. I’m sick of AUDIBLE’s failure to give these stories the time of day! These stories are worth so much more than a 30 min audio romp! Your current catalog of MMF erotic romance is pathetic at best. Who are your editors!?

I wish I could read it again for the first time

This duet was incredibly good. It was unique, intriguing, twisty and surprising, heartbreaking and heartwarming…just so well done.
The three main characters and their dynamics both as couples and in their relationship as a whole was so good. I was totally team Asher & Landon then I switched to team Landon and Breslin then I was team Asher and Breslin. The way the author wrote the turmoil and pain was perfect. The way she wrote the pain and sacrifice made my heart ache. The way she ended the book was exactly what I was hoping for.
The characters were likable, well written, relatable and just lovable. The side characters enriched the story. I will be listening to the trilogy about them next.
The narration was superb.
Mia Madison was new to me. She did a fabulous job. I’ll be listening to more of her work.
Teddy Hamilton was Teddy Hamilton. In other words, he was flawless as usual.
I’ll be relistening to this duet. It was superb.

Left me feeling unsettled

I've read some great titles involving polyamorous relationships. I did not realize the characters were going to be so young and immature. That is something I generally try to avoid in the books I chose because I often find it is more irritating and detracting than entertaining.

I think this duet was technically well-written. I loved Landon & Asher and found them and their backstories engaging.

Then there's Breslyn... TBH she was on my nerve as much as she was off it. I couldn't relate to her and often didn't find her all that likable. The depth of the love she claimed to have for Asher did not shine through in her actions at the pivotal point or frankly any point afterward. She had a pretty tough childhood with exposure to a lot of toxic things & people. Because of that, her righteous and homophobic reaction to her high school sweetheart's confessions felt inconsistent with her background and other interactions. I found it hard to gather much empathy for her. Other reviewers indicated all worked out in the end so I really expected her character to be redeemed. Sadly, for me, it was not.

The narrators all gave great performances. They delivered the story with appropriate emotion and context that elevated the story and held your attention.

All in all, it wasn't a bad read. I did love the dynamics around Asher and Landon. The thing is... I didn't like Breslyn or how she treated the guys. Because of that, it is not likely that I will ever relisten to this one.

Not quite finished

I liked the series. These two books were very good in most respects. I feel like there’s another story for Preston and Kit.
And I think Teddy Hamilton is a great performer however there wasn’t enough distinction between the characters when they were talking to each other or in the same conversation with others. It was hard to distinguish who was who sometimes which made listening to the book a tiny bit awkward. I had to go back a couple of times to figure out who is talking. Also in the second book there was almost too much sex in the first book not enough. But overall I loved it I mean the fact that somebody so young can face so much drama and turmoil is a real thing and some thing that people don’t understand. Because their brains are still developing at their age the rate of suicide is so extremely high and it’s really surprising that although there was some touch on mental health that wasn’t even really a thought for these guys. You never know what’s happening in somebody’s life until you walk in their shoes.
Kudos to the author to for dealing with subject that people are really going through with identity and privileged people. It’s not all sun and ROZES
