Synopsis

Jane
I’ve always been on my own. My life used to consist of nothing but work, keeping Allen out of trouble, and if I had time, sleep. Then I became their maid.

Max
Every day more than half a million people tune in to watch my show. They trust me. I know it’s because I’m the only son of the prominent Emerson family. However, I like to believe it because I’m honest no matter what story I report on. I’m honest about everything but the man I’ve been f**king for the last four years… and now her.

Wesley
First I want three things: First Maxwell Emerson and Jane Chapman both in my bed. Second, to be the best bloody chef in the country. Third, to figure out how to simultaneously get the first and second things I want without any of us getting hurt.

THREE PEOPLE.

ONE LOVE STORY


Grace Review
When I think of threesome books, the first thing that comes to mind is sex.  LOTS OF SEX!  I mean, you have three hot people with lots of holes to fill.  LOL.  This book does have a good amount of very hot sex, but it also has something others are lacking, a plot.

This author has thrown everything at these three characters, which is both good and bad.  Let’s start with the good.

Everything is better in threes
Unlike some other MMF books I’ve read, this story kicks off with the two male characters, Maxwell and Wesley, already together.  Jane enters their life as their maid.  The sexual tension between the three is intense, as she catches them in multiple compromising positions, and finds herself incredibly turned on.  Although there is an obvious attraction among them, it takes more time for things to develop physically, than I expect.  And when it does, holy hell.  *fans self*

I wasn’t a good girl.
I wasn’t a bad girl.
I was their girl.

Not to be read in public
There are parts of this book that just need to be read in the privacy of your own home.  These three are insatiable and once they give in to their desires, they consume one another.  Jane has found a boldness that drives both men mad.  Add to that her submissiveness, and Wes, who has some Dom tendencies, is in heaven.

“A great orgasm doesn’t happen remarkably fast, Ms. Chapman.  It’s the build-up and the path that gets you there.”

I did fear at times that one of the males would grow closer to Jane than the other, but I liked how she established the rule where neither could fuck her without the other present.  She is respectful in realizing that this two men have been together for years and does everything possible to not upset their history.

“My selfish reason is because you both were in a relationship before me.  It would be wrong fo me to break a bond that’s already there.”

Too much going on
Now, let me briefly explain the bad in this plot.  This may just be my opinion, but I felt with all of the plot lines, maybe it was a bit too much.  You have loan sharks, corrupt politicians, career ambitions, family meddling, jealousy from multiple fronts, and then the surprise at the end.  If I hadn’t know it already, I would have been shocked that this ended in a cliffhanger.  Possibly with less plot lines, this could hav been a standalone.  But since book two isn’t finished yet, it’s impossible to guess where the author will lead this story.

I think for this threesome to last, some or all will need to make some sacrifices.  But with the ending of the last book, I’m expecting more angst in the next installment.  Hopefully not too much, these three have a passionate connection, but deep level of compassion to make things work for the long haul.
