At Three Bears surf break, the attraction between a group of friends is anything but “Luke warm….”

Dan goes to stay with his best friend Josh in Margaret River, the surfing capital of Western Australia, to sort out his sexual confusion. But his best friend is the source of that confusion. Having never been attracted to a man other than Josh, Dan fears risking their friendship just to discover men aren’t his thing.

Within the first few days, Dan meets Luke, a local barista who offers him surf lessons. Dan soon finds himself emotionally coveting not one, but two men. When they go to Three Bears, his hidden desires begin to emerge. As the ambiguity of Dan’s mixed signals clears, it becomes apparent both of his surfing companions want him—badly.

It is only when Luke and Josh hook up that they formulate “Operation Three Bears,” an adventurous plan that might lead to a satisfying outcome for all of them.

This book right here really was a decent read. This is a book about one man that realizes something about himself and is finally ready to admit it. Another man who has a secret to keep. And finally the last man is the catalyst to it all being blown wide open. Now the question is, can it be put back together again?

Dan has known for a while he felt something towards his best friend Josh. The only issue is Dan has never had the courage to act on it and besides everyone thinks he is straight. So Dan cannot take the chance of ruining things between him and his best friend. Another reason to not say anything is because, other than Josh, Dan has not been attracted to another man. Or at least that was the case until he met Luke.

When Dan goes and stays with Josh for three months it becomes Josh’s personal hell. The reason I say this is because Josh is in love with his straight best friend and there is absolutely nothing he can do about it. Except maybe find someone to pass the time with until Dan is gone again and Josh can once again bury those feeling.

When Dan takes a virtual stranger on surfing lessons who he met while getting coffee, he thinks this is a good opportunity to get out of his own head. But the problem is, When Luke touches him, innocently, Dan feels the same spark he has only felt with Josh. So now Dan has not one but two guys he is harboring attraction to and has no clue how to deal with it.

To make matters worse when Dan and Josh meet, sparks fly between them as well and Josh and Dan both being openly gay do not have to hide their attraction to the other, so they hook up. Problem being Dan knows they do and Josh and Luke both realize that Dan is curious, as well as attracted to both men. But with Josh and Luke’s hookup, it may have destroyed everything for everyone involved. Or has it?

This book has quite a bit of back and forth on Dan’s part. Which I am honestly glad for because if this was really happening in actual life then I think the reactions Dan has towards his sexuality is more realistic. That makes a read better in my opinion because you can actually see it happening. A. Nybo really did a great job on this book and made it quite the interesting read.

Galley copy of Three Bears provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
