Blurb: Gay and happily married, Leo has helped manage a large, influential nonprofit arts foundation over the past ten years. He has built a friendly rapport with the elderly billionaire who began it, but he has enemies within the foundation.
Leo’s birthday is on February 13, and that has always meant candles on heart-shaped cupcakes and birthday cards with “Happy Valentine’s Day” crossed out. To celebrate, Andrew, Leo’s mystery writer husband, arranges a tryst for Leo with Mel, a gifted violinist who is one of Andrew’s biggest fans.
What started as mere pleasure becomes a three-part harmony as Leo, Andrew, and Mel explore the ways their kinks and needs mesh—until Leo’s enemies attempt to use evidence of the liaison to force him out of his job.
Review: Leo’s birthday is the day before Valentines day. His husband has set up a surprise present for him. One sexy young man who can play the violin. Andrew has given him a gift but it turns out in the end the gift would be for them all. Mel couldn’t be happier to end up with these two guys and it sure does show.
Now I have to say that this one didn’t quite keep my attention like it should have. I am all for being married or even in a threesome relationship. My issues were the fact that Leo had not asked for it. He knew his husband was into that sort of thing, but his heart was not like that. However for him Mel was perfect. To me even if it is a gift given to you by your husband, it just seems wrong.
It was an interesting story, but it didn’t do anything for me. The story came off a bit dry and dull. Although the three of them was quite hot. It was different then what I have read before. I don’t care for open relationships and the fact that one of them did not do that sort of thing, it felt like Andrew was not that much in love. Now Leo calls them cheating and being together in the book, and that made the story even more off. To me it was a bad porno. Then there was the fact like it was pushed together fast, not slow to get to know each other.
However I am sorry to say this book was definitely not for me.
