Publisher's summary

Two’s company and three’s a crowd, right? Not when you’ve got a genius who knows that, sometimes, it takes more than two people to make a family.

Cody’s been waiting years for his sexy former professor to take the leap and ask him out. Unfortunately, Cody’s youthful looks and the fact that Jameson has known him since he was 14 aren’t helping the situation any. When the precocious student finally decides that the slightly reluctant Jameson needs a little push to move him in the right direction, Cody knows just what to do: follow his curiosity.

When Ford is introduced to Cody at Bound & Controlled, he’s interested, but a little wary. Just because the funny little thing says he’s looking for a daddy doesn’t mean Ford is the one for him. Guys are usually hesitant when it comes to getting close to an asexual daddy dom. But the unpredictable Cody seems to think that’s the perfect combination.

A little patience and a bit of research has helped Cody find his Mr. Rights. He’s just not sure what it will take to get his nervous professor and his loving daddy to see that all they really need is each other.

Author’s note: This is a slow-burn romance that has a HFN ending.

Warning: Story Contains: The story contains MMM sexual content, BDSM elements, spankings, and age play.

Great listen!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

When I read the blurb of this book, I was very interested in it. I haven’t read anything from this author yet, so I was glad that I would be experiencing a “new” voice to me. The narrator is one I have listened to many times and really like. May/December romances are a favorite trope of mine, and I also love MMM. The book had all that going for it, and then there was mention of an asexual daddy dom, and I really wanted to know how that would work. Now age play is not a well known kink to me in my reading. I may have read a few stories, but I think they might have dabbled lightly into the kink if this book is any indication. The level of trust between Cody and Ford must have been strong, because there were some things that I never imagined would occur in this kink. I feel like it serves as a test of the author. Can you make someone who might find something strange feel the trust and depth of the characters and scene to find it sweet or beautiful. And I think the author succeeded.

So the kink is just one part of this very interesting, sort-of menage story. Cody is an early twenty something who is a genius. At fourteen, he started working on one of his many college degrees. And the professors at the school seem to count him as a friend, even while being a little protective of him. Jameson is one of those professors. Cody’s crush was evident early on, but there was no way Jameson would have started a relationship with the underage man; not after his experiences as a young gay man. Even when Cody grew up, it still seemed like it was illicit in Jameson’s mind and as a result Cody began to consider finding someone else. At least someone else who might satisfy his questions about BDSM and age play in particular. Ford is a daddy dom, who wants a relationship, preferably with a sub, but has no interest in sex. Bringing Cody to release is something that makes him happy, but it won’t happen through intercourse. All in all, they are all so very unique, interesting, and wonderful, and I had to discover how it would work for them.

Now the story falls short of a committed relationship between all three of them equally. Cody is in two relationships and the two men he is involved with don’t meet each other until much later. It eases some of the doubt Jameson and Ford have with the permanence of their relationships, and they find a way to bond over their care for Cody. I am very interested to see how this throuple proceeds in the next book in the series.

The kink in this book was not quite what I expected, but I really found the love that grew between Cody and Ford to be beautiful. Jameson had a past that left a deep scar on his heart. It was nice to see him overcome his fears and take a chance with Cody as well. Kenneth Obi narrated this book very well. I am always pleased with his emoting and range of tones. I never got lost wondering who was speaking at a moment. It was a really good book and I definitely recommend it.

interesting story

it's a great story with unique characters. thankfully there's finally some asexual representation, that's awesome to see. the voices were compelling. my only complaint, especially at the beginning and especially with Cody, is that there are times where the character is talking and thinking one right after another and there was no pause of change in tone to distinguish between what was actually said to the other characters and what was just thought in their head.

Embracing patience

Plot: Daddy/boy, May/Dec, Potential MMM

Feels: Cody & Ford: sweet and lovely; Cody & Jameson: not enough growth yet

Drama: Jameson’s wallowing lasts too long

Heat: 2.5/5 slow-burn

Characters: took a long time for Jameson to grow on me, feel he needs to build up mental strength to deserve Cody

Pacing: slow

Length: stretched into two volumes

Ending: to be continued...looking forward to a satisfying conclusion!

Performance: Kenneth Obi deftly blends cuteness and excitement for Cody, softness and strength for Ford and uncertainty for Jameson.

I adore this series!!

Never have I ever been so invested in a threesome as I was with these 3 when I read this book. Cody is so smart but just lost when it comes to be worldly. Jamison is like the proverbial ostrich and Ford is the glue that holds them together. I can't wait for the next one to come out on audible. Mr. Obi you did a wonderful job, as always.

Cody is a catalyst

This has so many wonderful elements all in one story- asexual Dom, BDSM, age play, and three amazing men. I loved that they are all willing to explore and accept each other's differences and needs and form a connection that suits them all. I liked seeing Jameson come out of his shell and grow, and I look forward to more from this triad. The narrator, Kenneth Obi, brought the story to life with his voices and expressions. Great job. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

phenomenal

I can't even begin to explain how this book touched me. I cried at the end but it was happy and heart warming tears. M.A. Innes has a way of making you fall in love with her characters. I wish I could give this book a higher rating.

Needs Met

I love the slow building relationship with Cody and Ford. I love how much Ford cares for all of Cody. I like the potential best outcome hinted at. Can't wait to listen to the next one.

Listened to the audio version. I love even when all three men were present you knew who was talking.

First time listening for this author.

I loved the way the characters evolved as their relationship developed. It never felt forced.
