    This book was difficult to rate I ve gone back and forth and all that thinking made my brain hurt There were parts that really worked for me and then parts that just didn t Parts that I wanted to slow down and parts I had to hold myself back from skipping When I read a book that has a party of three, I always look to see if they re all treated as equals and that their love connection works in pairs as well as the trio It didn t IMO and I hope I m able to adequately explain what didn t work This book was difficult to rate I ve gone back and forth and all that thinking made my brain hurt There were parts that really worked for me and then parts that just didn t Parts that I wanted to slow down and parts I had to hold myself back from skipping When I read a book that has a party of three, I always look to see if they re all treated as equals and that their love connection works in pairs as well as the trio It didn t IMO and I hope I m able to adequately explain what didn t work for me Mitch and Ian have been best friends for most of their life They ve always had a platonic relationship but Ian has been completely in love with Mitch for years They have a very close relationship that borders onthan friends but Mitch has been too blind to notice and Ian has been too reluctant to tell Mitch how he feels They are both busy with school, Ian working as a CNA and Mitch playing college baseball Finally, Ian can t take it anyand HAS to tell Mitch how he feels They meet up at a bar and Ian is totally terrified but ready to spill that is, until Mitch s secret, Greek god, bartender boyfriend comes up to their table and gives Mitch a kiss Mitch and Dusty met at Angel s bar, where Dusty is a bartender What was supposed to be a one night stand turned out to be a relationship that Mitch kept under wraps By time Ian finds out about the relationship, they have been together almost 7 weeks and are in love It s a very tough pill for Ian to swallow but he does for the sake of Mitch s happiness However, when Mitch and Ian hang out, there are these moments that are opening Mitch s eyes to his feelings for Ian even though he still loves Dusty.Ian and Dusty have also been spending time together while Mitch is off taking care of his sister s issues or playing baseball It s during these times with Ian and Dusty that they start to develop feelings for each other until one drunken night, they kiss This sets off a domino effect of issues for all of them to work through While they do get their HEA, Mitch has to work through the betrayal and all the feelings between Ian and Dusty and Mitch s with both men.I had a hard time with Mitch He grated on me with his overly dramatic personality, judgy statements, and everything surrounding his sister, April I didn t understand the need for April s storyline outside of creating potential drama for Dusty and Mitch which detracted from the story IMO The introduction of April and her issues wasn t smooth and as it was first happening, my thoughts were along the lines of, Oh gosh, here we go I also didn t believe the relationship between Mitch and Dusty Outside of sex, they didn t have depth Don t get me wrong, sex is always a plus but, I neededand they didn t have it They never shared anything meaningful but when Ian came along, Dusty was spilling his soul to him That didn t work because Mitch and Dusty were supposedly in love and they had found the one but couldn t share anything beyond orgasms and food.Now, Ian and Dusty is where it s at They worked They had a great connection and the depth in their relationship was so evident that it highlighted the shortfalls with Mitch They had awesome chemistry and my kindle started smoking just from their kisses I wouldn t have complained if this was a M M starring them They were a team whether it was in the kitchen cooking, cuddling on the couch, or getting it on I was a huge fan of them Mitch and Ian never really found their stride They didn t seem to be equals in the trio even though they were life long friends It remained awkward and they never quite got to the point together to even come close to how Ian was with Dusty.The POVs changing with each chapter was a little hard to get into at the beginning I m sure by now you can all guess that I would have preferred Mitch s POV to disappear shrug Another addition to the story that had me rolling my eyes and shaking my head was Trevor He was a guy that Ian went out with twice to try and get over Mitch There was enough going on with the three MCs coming together, the implications of said relationship on family friends, and the bar drama to make the book work Trevor was as pointless to my reading enjoyment as the April storyline and yet both brought so much drama.There should be a trigger warning for mentions of sexual assault The facts in the story are contradictory from the actual event to when it was mentioned at the end However, it s worth noting There is also cheating by way of kissing prior to the three of them getting together This was a decent read I don t expect each MC to share the exact same likes, desires, bond and relationship with both the other men but I do want them to all feel equal and share some depth While it didn t fully work for me, I could see this being an okay starting point for those new to menage books provided for honest review.

    4.5 starsThis was my first book with an M M M pairing I wanted to read one for a while now and was looking at blurbs for one that would grab my attention My problem with any blurb so far was that the story involved an established couple, usually together for many years, deciding to add a third person to their relationship I wasn t feeling compfortable with that dynamic so I stayed away from this trope until now What s so different about this book that made me take the step and finally read a 4.5 starsThis was my first book with an M M M pairing I wanted to read one for a while now and was looking at blurbs for one that would grab my attention My problem with any blurb so far was that the story involved an established couple, usually together for many years, deciding to add a third person to their relationship I wasn t feeling compfortable with that dynamic so I stayed away from this trope until now What s so different about this book that made me take the step and finally read a menage story Here the established relationship was the friendship between two of the characters Ian and Mitch had been best friends for many years but never anything , so even though Dusty began a romantic relationship with Mitch before anything happened with Ian, in the end, it was a relationship between three people that felt like it was starting at the same point for all of them Dusty had intimate knowledge of Mitch before Ian came into the relationship but Ian and Mitch knew basically everything about each other because of their many years as close friends The most important thing is that all three felt like equals in the relationship There was jealousy in the story but only before they all got together After that there was communication, trust and affection A lot of those things were brought to the table by Ian so even though Mitch and Dusty were saying that they didn t feel like something was missing before Ian, he was the one that gave the relationship the possibility to be a strong and lasting one Each of the three was secure in his place in the relationship and they all worked very well together They supported each other, comforted each other and were there no matter what The relationship between all three of them was as strong as it was between each individual twosome It took a while for all of them to get together, but I liked the process The book includes all three POVs in equal measure and through each one we see the process of realising they re in love with two people Their confusion when it started, their desperation when it wouldn t go away, their hope for the solution they found The first half of the book has all three of them battling their feelings for one or both of the other two There is jealousy in this part, hopelessness, disappointment, distance It s hard to read at times because you see how happy Mitch and Dusty are together and how miserable Ian is that he is just looking in from the outside Still, even through their happiness, it s apparent that something is happening with Ian They don t feel like anything is missing from their relationship but Ian is like a magnet that pulls them in I think that Ian completes them and make them come closer together He was the one that made them talk about all the important things even before he entered the relationship and made them continue to do so whenever an issue arose after all of them got together The second half is about the workings of their new relationship, the way society looks at the three of them together, the acceptance or rejection of their friends and families Throughout the whole book each character has to face additional personal problems I was okay with that except for the side plot with Mitch s sister, April It felt like it was there for the sole purpose of creating some friction in his relationship with Dusty before Ian It didn t really add anything to the story and the solution came easily and exactly at the most convenient of times I liked both parts of the story equally and had fun reading my first book with this trope After some digging I found that the second book in the series will be about Erik and Hank s relationship and specifically about how they met and became a couple In this book they have been together for a bitthan five years so the next one will be set in the past and we ll learn a littleabout what they had to face as a new couple There is a big age gap between them and Hank is divorced with kids Sounds like an interesting story, right I ll keep checking for a release dateThis review has been cross posted on The Novel Approach Reviews An ARC of this book was kindly provided to me by the publisher via The Novel Approach Reviews in exchange for an honest review

with Ian and thoughts of how his lips would feel and what it would be like to wake up next to him start creeping into Mitch s brain But he s so sure about how much he wants Dustyso how can he want Ian tooit s not possible to lovethan one person, right I mthan a little impressed with this one Nicky Spencer isn t just a new to me authorshe s a new author and while there were things about this that weren t perfect for me there was a lot that I liked I ve read a few books where the author wrote each chapter from the POV of one of the MCs and yes, those books were written about traditional pairings of 2 people so I have to admit when I saw that this was done that way but alternating between 3 MCs my brain might have stuttered a little but when I took a deep breath and thought about it I decided that reading it certainly couldn t be harder than writing it and it wasn tfor me it actually worked well since I tend to enjoy stories told from alternating points of view Spending too much time in one person s head spaceoften than not tends to be annoying, disconcerting frustrating or some combination of those things for me so alternating POVs usually works best I found the dynamics between these three men interestingMitch and Ian are both college students Mitch comes from a family that s fairly well to day His parents pay for his schooling, his condo, provide an allowance and gifted him with a nice car, he s on a sports scholarship for baseballyep, basically Mitch is one lucky dude and in a lot of ways I got the impression that he doesn t take this for granted, he knows he s lucky so I like that about him But at the same time I didn t feel like I could relate to him For me Mitch just seemed to wear his rose colored glasses too much when it came to how he viewed life in general and there were times when he was a little to quick to pass judgement on things when he didn t really know all the facts While Ian s had a very different life He s studying to be a nurse and he works as a CNA certified nurse s aide to help pay for this, he rides the bus to get where he s going Ian s been raised by a single mom and an absentee dad that he learned long ago not to rely on I really liked Ian, I m not even 100% sure why I liked him so much but I did He came across as cute and funny, a bit of a nerd but a sexy one and a really loyal friend Lastly we have Dusty Dusty s a bit older than Mitch and Ian He s working as bartender at Angel s when he meets Mitch and they re one night stand turns into a relationship Dusty turns out to be the grounding force for this trio He s a littlemature and that s partially due to his age but it s also because of his life experience and yet, ironically in some areas of his life Dusty has definite issues with self esteem and confidence I can t say that the dynamics between the three of them didn t work for me butlikeit wasn t quite what I expected I was really surprised to find that when all was said and done I felt that while Dusty and Mitch seemed to still loved each other The relationship that I really felt and bought into was Ian and Mitch I just really, really liked and enjoyed the interaction between these two men, it feltnatural and realistic Which also leads me to feel that Dusty was actually what pulled the three of them together and yet when I take everything into consideration logic tells me it should be Mitch or even Ian but when I break it down and look at Mitch Dusty Ian Dusty Mitch Ian and I have to admit I wasn t feeling this last pairing at all things just kept coming back to Dusty The other part of this menage that strangely enough I was ok with was the fact that there isn t a perfect balance between these threerealistically even a relationship involving only two people doesn t have perfect balance at all timesit s give and take and when that happens quite often the balance shifts back and forththat s just how it goes as long as one person doesn t always seem to hold the control in a relationship I m ok with things shifting around I really enjoyed this story While it wasn t perfect for me there was definitelygood than not in it It held my attention and I had no problem with involved with the characters and the events of the story There were some things that I would have enjoyedof such as maybe a bit of Mitch and Dusty pre Dusty meets Ian or a bitErik and Ianjust to be clear, we re talking a purely platonic friendship here I d love to seeof these two interacting and maybe even eventually becoming friends I m pretty sure the worlds not ready for that but it d sure be fun The one thing that I would have been ok with less of was Aprilbut that s a very, very subjective opinion so we won t worry about that one Last but not least I really enjoyed the author s writing style it worked for me and I found myself easily about to re engage with the story whenever I was able to resume readingpesky RL is pesky I m impressed with this author s first time story and I look forward to finding out what she has planned for the future If you re looking for something newcheck it out, it s being released today A Bolt of Blue by Nicky Spencercurled up in a comfy chair with 3

    I kind of decided to read this on a whim I think this is a solid debut novel The story was interesting and engaging, and I found it easy to like the characters Trigger warning for sexual assault.The story starts off with Ian He s been in love with his best friend Micah for years Ian s a bit shy, but he s decided that tonight, he s going to confess his feelings and then he and Mitch will be in love and everything will be great Unfortunately for Ian, this is a dinner where Mitch decides to t I kind of decided to read this on a whim I think this is a solid debut novel The story was interesting and engaging, and I found it easy to like the characters Trigger warning for sexual assault.The story starts off with Ian He s been in love with his best friend Micah for years Ian s a bit shy, but he s decided that tonight, he s going to confess his feelings and then he and Mitch will be in love and everything will be great Unfortunately for Ian, this is a dinner where Mitch decides to tell Ian that he has a boyfriend, Dusty Meanwhile, Dusty can t deny that there s something between Mitch and Ian Dusty and Mitch are good together, but there s a history between Ian and Mitch that Dusty just doesn t have with Mitch.This book is told in first person from all three of the characters perspectives And it does get confusing from time to time whose perspective you re reading if the other two characters aren t mentioned Each chapter is short, so there s a constant switching between POVs that I m not sure I m a fan of It doesn t give enough time to really get to know a character before you re already reading a chapter from another character s perspective The upside is that all chapters do have the character s name labeled so that does help a great deal to let the reader know who the chapter POV will be.So, the thing about this book is that even knowing that this book is a MMM m nage, there s still that ick feeling starting out, and leading up to the three men being on that same page and wanting a relationship together And what I mean by that is that on that one hand, Mitch and Dusty are in a relationship and then circumstances bring Dusty and Ian together and they start developing feelings for one another and kiss without Mitch s knowledge They fess up to it later, but it s this huge mess I don t know if it s because it seems like Ian and Dusty are sneaking around talking to each other behind Mitch s back, but I feel like they have better chemistry together than Dusty Mitch.The biggest issue I had is just what the catalyst was that brought Ian and Dusty s feelings towards one another to light Ian was jealous of Dusty and Mitch s relationship, so he decided to go out with a guy called Trevor again after a failed date where said guy gave him the creeps After the second date Trevor, who was very pushy even though Ian was hesitant about hooking up, decided to give Ian a blowjob, but wouldn t stop even when Ian said stop twice and made efforts to push Trevor away Thankfully, Ian was able to get away, but he felt bad for what happened and never recognizes what happened to him as sexual assault even when Dusty tells him outright that it was a little bit later in the story This is the moment where Ian and Dusty connected when Dusty went and picked Ian up after They bond and grow closer after, but it does bother me that sexual assault was the event that kind of brought them together, as it were.The book has a lot of angst with the characters worrying about who is in a relationship with who and who might be cheating There s some family drama, but I do like the characters and seeing their respective lives When the three characters clicked together, I think they worked well The story has an ending that certainly wrapped everything up and even a touching moment in the epilogue that I liked.Mitch is a baseball player and we see him interact with his teammates a bit, especially his friends Alex and Theo I wouldn t mind seeingof them in future books, even as secondary characters if they don t get their own books I am interested in how this series will play out and which characters the books will focus on, assuming Ian Mitch Dusty s story is done This is a good debut novel by Nicky Spencer and I look forward to readingbooks by the author Thanks to IndiGo Marketing Design for providing me an ARC for review
