Ethan has been flirting with Nick, the hot alpha photographer who visits his coffee shop, for a few weeks when they make an accidental connection that throws Ethan into an early heat. With an alpha at his side, dealing with his heat should be a simple matter, but there’s just one problem: arrogant alpha Corey Masters, real estate heir, reality TV star, tabloid regular…and Nick’s boyfriend.
Nick wants Ethan, and Ethan wants Nick. Corey wants nothing to do with omegas, but there’s no way in hell he’s going to leave his lover alone with a stranger. Could there be a future for the three of them, or will two alphas be too many for Ethan to handle?
This is a non-shifter M/M/M menage romance with the heat level turned up to 11, featuring knotting, male pregnancy, and an HEA ending with no cliffhangers.
I liked this book, the ending was a bit rushed as compared to the author has set at the beginning but never the less it was a good book. What I loved the most was the way non-binary gender and sexuality was subtly (sometimes it was as subtle as a sledgehammer to the face) conveyed. I loved the dynamics between Nick and Corey, and when Ethan was added to the mix, there was still a sort of balance. THE SEX SCENES WERE FUCKING HOT!
Speaking of sex scenes, the whole “Knotting” thing made me blink a few times, but I got over it quickly. Even though it’s a non-shifter book the A/B/O dynamics was similar to that of a shifter romance book. The concept of heat, mates, scent glands, scenting and all that was the same.
The Mpreg which was one of the reasons I choose to read this only happened towards the ending and as such didn’t play a major part in the book. I wish it did but meh.
I loved Corey, at first, he seemed a bit indifferent, selfish and someone insensitive, and well while he’s still a selfish brat, it’s for a good cause… Um yeah. Corey as a character felt well rounded to be because people aren’t always purely good or purely bad, they have a mix of both good and bad characteristics and li loved how Cory was a nice sweet guy, who was also a selfish, brat with an undying love for coffee. It was nice to read a book with an alpha/alpha pairing. I mean, I love alpha/omega pairings but sometimes it’d be fun to read about an alpha who isn’t sexually attracted to most omegas because they sent is too sweet for his taste.
I liked Ethan also, while the book pretty much revolved around his growing relationship with Nick and how that fit with Nick and Corey’s relationship, I wish I got to know him on a personal level. Sure I know about his heat and how he sometimes feels conflicted, because if he is submissive then he would seem like a weak omega who seems to live to please alpha, and if he is tough and independent then it would seem like he is trying to be rebellious to his nature. I wish I knew a bit of his background, same with Nick, but never the less it’s an amazing book.
