Cris Sable doesn’t walk into popular gay bar Big Dick’s expecting to find more than a casual hookup, so he’s surprised by his instant attraction and intense chemistry with go-go dancer Jake. Jake’s sexy as hell and a firecracker in bed. The sparks between them are undeniable, and what starts as a hookup evolves into something deeper, possibly permanent—until Jake dumps Cris flat on his ass for no good reason.
Angry and confused, Cris finds comfort with his longtime friend and employer Charles “Chet” Greenwood. Cris’s emotional state stirs up Charles’s long-buried feelings for Cris. Feelings he’s denied for eight years, because Cris is his employee and therefore off limits—not to mention two decades younger than Charles. Cris admits he has feelings for Charles, too, but he’s still getting over Jake and both men agree nothing can happen between them while Charles is still Cris’s boss.
Jake Bowden knows he doesn’t have anything to offer a guy. He’s a go-go dancer with no degree and no real career aspirations. He’s also used to everyone who loves him leaving, so it makes sense to cut Cris loose before things get too serious. Cris is kind, passionate and totally deserves a guy like Charles—wealthy, owns a home, successful businessman. Jake can’t compete so why bother? They’re better off together. But when Jake has a serious personal crisis, Cris and Charles unite to pull him back together, and the three men discover it’s possible—maybe even inevitable—to fall in love with more than one person at a time.
A.m. Author truly knows how to write a book that will capture he readers attention from the get go and keep it to the end. A.M. Makes each book believable and leaves the reader wanting more. This book is definitely one of those books.
One man brings togther the three of them unintentionally but in the end made the three of them whole.
Cris has worked for Chet for eight years off and on as a porn star. But the fact that Cris has been in love with Chet for almost that full amount of time has been a secret that he has kept close to his heart for the whole of the time togther. The same goes for the feelings that Chet has for Cris. He too has been in love with Cris for as long as he can remember but Chet never wanted to cross the line with Cris because of him being his employee and not wanting to cross those boundaries.
So both men have been secretly in love with the other but not willing to cross the boundaries and chanc messing up their friendship or working relationship. But Cris has a much bigger secret he has been keeping from Chet. Chet’s nephew got himself in a bad way and ended up needing a kidney transplant. Cris could not stand by and do nothing so he did a voluntary anonymous donation which saved Dell’s life. Cris did not do it for any other reason then he loves Chet and could not continue to watch him and Dell suffer.
So many secrets and no end in sight….
Cris one night decides to let off some steam and goes to the club. At the club one of the go go dancers catches gis attention and vie versa. It was definitely instant attraction between Cris and Jake. The chemistry was off the charts between the two of them. But circumstances come between them and out and end to what they may have had before it even starts.
Through a series of events Chet, Cris, and Jake all come togther to overcome some very serious but personal situation. This is what brings theee men together that may have never found one another or at least not in the way that they have come together. Now the question is can they find a way to work together and make their new found poly relationship work or is it doomed to end before it begins also.
I can honestly say that waiting for the next book about these theee men to come out is going to be torture. This was such an amzing story that touched on some very series topics. The way that A.M. wrote this story was done with respect for the situation and the topics that was written about. That alone makes the story so much better. I am waiting on pins and needles to continue this journey with these men in the next book. I have a feeling that it is going to blow this book away.
