I will admit that I didn’t care for this book. I think that fans of the series will appreciate what this book has to offer, but I haven’t read the first books in the series. You definitely need to read these books in order.
I can tell that M.Q. Barber is moving her characters forward in this book. She is talking more about their past and who they are and their relationship, but without having any background knowledge, it is hard to appreciate the continued journey of these characters. For example, they keep referring to an incident that happened at a club, but who was involved or why it was such an issue is just hinted at without any real information given. Those who read book two will appreciate the impact this incident had on the threesome more than I could.
This book is the story of Alice, Henry and Jay and their threesome relationship. From what I could figure out, Henry is the dominant person in their relationship. Both Alice and Jay are submissive to him, but Jay is also submissive to Alice allowing her to be dominate there. They all move in together at the beginning of this book and are working on figuring out exactly what the relationship will be.
I could tell that they all have issues stemming from either past relationships or else unfamiliarity with these types of relationships. It seems like Jay has had a traumatic experience that he is trying to recover from while Alice isn’t sure how things are supposed to work. When an old friend from Henry’s past appears, Alice becomes extremely jealous and has to cope with those feelings.
The sex scenes in this book are graphic. They combine male/ male as well as female/male. These scenes are what the book centers around since the relationship between these three people has a heavy sexual component. This book is not for those who are squeamish about such scenes, but if you are a fan of the series, you will already know what to expect.
