Blurb: This is book three in the Ivory Towers series.
Shane’s first year out of college crushes his ego. When visiting Angel and the opportunity for a threesome arises, will it bring them closer or drive them apart?
Two months filming his first movie away from school have left Shane Roberts a changed man—humbled, conflicted, and more than anything scared that his boyfriend Angel won’t love him anymore once he finds out Shane’s weaknesses.
Excited as Angel is to have Shane home, Angel wonders why Shane feels like a stranger. He knows Shane has a wall up, but has no idea how to rip it down. When the opportunity arises to explore a ménage with an old friend of Shane’s, Angel is initially wary, but hopes that the experience will help jar him and Shane out of their funk.
If there’s one thing Shane is still confident about, it’s his abilities in the bedroom. So despite their high blood alcohol level and his niggling worry that sharing Angel with another man will ruin their relationship, Shane tries to give Angel the sexual experience of a lifetime.
But real world failures are tougher to handle than the silly hijinks Shane got up to in college. This time, the very thing Shane’s always relied on to hold Angel and Shane together backfires spectacularly. Shane fears he’s pushed Angel away right when he needs Angel the most.
If Shane wants to keep his boyfriend and save his relationship, he’ll have to admit he’s not the guy Angel thought he was. But maybe if Shane opens his heart, he’ll find Angel loves him not only for his successes, but also for the man he is inside.

Review: Shane is out of college and on his first job. Angel is still in school. Both men feel tension when Shane comes home for a visit. Angel is afraid Shane will be leaving and not coming back and worries about their relationship. Shane is afraid Angel will be disappointed in him and want more since Shane is Angels first and Shane was a playboy before Angel.
At a dance one of Shane’s friends makes a suggestion he wouldn’t mind being a third and each man wonders if that’s what the other really wants.
I found this a very emotional, hot and sexy story. It delves deeply into the thoughts and hearts of both men. I found it beautifully written and the characters deep and interesting. I love the love, the darkness, the depth of emotions. I also think the story stands alone very well. I haven’t read the first two but by the time I finished this and the excerpt for book four, I found myself wanting them all, to see how they met and what happens next.
