A.E. Via

World renowned chef Prescott Vaughan was at the height of his career. Right before he’s to leave for Paris to work alongside his idol, a horrific car accident leaves him completely blind.

His female fiancé leaves him in a state of desperation and depression. He pines for love, companionship, and so happens to find it in the form of his very sexy neighbor. Sexy male neighbor, Dr. Rickson ‘Ric’ Edwards.

Prescott’s not gay – at least he never considered himself gay – until Ric saves him from a date, gone terribly wrong. The two neighbors hit it off quickly and waste no time exploring and learning each other. Things are great until Ric begins to have his doubts about meeting Prescott’s many wants.

When Ric insist he and Prescott take a breather, Pres finds himself lonely and lacking again. Enter, male escort and aspiring chef, Blair McKenzie to fill the void.

In the meantime, Ric works on his issues that prohibits him from displaying the love he knows he has for Prescott. When Ric is finally ready and returns to claim Prescott he’s not sure that Pres can let go of the sexy, southern, hotness that is Blair McKenzie. After Ric has his own personal encounter with the sinfully sexy man, he can’t help but become entranced and crave more as well.

Pres soon realizes that there’s no need to choose between his two men, because when all three of them finally come together – grab a cold drink – the heat is going to go all the way up!

Excerpt!

Now after that shove, he really didn’t know how close he was to the street. He took another couple steps and stumbled off the steep curb. Horns blared and tires screeched as he jumped backward, running right into a rock-hard chest.

Pres ducked and shivered violently as the warm urine ran down his pants leg and pooled around his feet.

You got to be fuckin’ shittin’ me. Pres put his one good hand out in front of him to hopefully ward off the attack he was about to get. “Please don’t hit me. I’m sorry. I didn’t see you, I swear. Just…don’t hurt me, please.”

“I’d never hurt you, baby. Com’ere. Hold on to me.”

Baby?

A very masculine, rich voice was in his ear as a strong arm took Pres’s good hand and wrapped it around a narrow waist as the man held his limp, bloody hand up in the air. “Keep it elevated, Pres. Jesus. I’m so sorry. It’s all right. I’m gonna take care of you.”

This person just said my name. Okay…so it’s someone who knows me.

Pres’s keen senses had shut down because of the surge of fear coursing through him. He couldn’t figure out who this kind stranger was.

Pres heard a shrill whistle as the deep voice yelled, “Taxi!” The man had one thick arm around Pres’s back as the other kept his throbbing hand up in the air.

“I got you, gorgeous. Just hold on to me.” The deep voice was smooth and soothing.

Pres was in no condition to fight that it was a strange man holding him like this and calling him “baby.” He’d never been so terrified and abused since he’d lost his sight. He’d never been abused, period. He lost the fight at trying to hold on to a small amount of dignity and buried his head in the strong chest and let his tears fall quietly. He felt himself being ushered into a car, a taxi, he presumed.

“Chesapeake Hospital,” the deep voice told the driver.

About A.E.!

A.E. (Adrienne) Via has been a best-selling author in gay romance for five years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of gay lit for over twenty years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this beautiful genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple of great new up and coming MM authors.

A.E. has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Virginia Wesleyan College that she used to start her own paralegal firm after she graduated in 2008. She spent five years preparing and filing bankruptcy petitions for struggling blue collar workers who couldn’t afford to file with a lawyer. It was a rewarding and satisfying career… but another path called to me. Writing.

A.E.’s writing embodies everything from hopelessly romantic to adventure, to scandalous. Her stories often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.

She’s recently celebrated her 20th book anniversary, and is kind of known now for her hardcore, play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, she does like to push herself to step out of her comfort zone, exploring different tropes, but she won’t push herself into a whole other genre. She’s head over heels for gay romance and she has tons of more hot stories to tell.

Tams Review: 5 💖💖💖💖💖 Hearts

Menage’a Trois anyone??

Prescott Vaughan had the perfect life. A world class chef with the notoriety to back him up, a condo to die for and a beautiful fiancé to come home to. Until his world literally crashes down around him. A car accident leaves him blind, depressed and empty. And then his fiancé leaves him as well, “I didn’t sign up for this.” Bitch. But his mother will not let him wallow in his self imposed misery, so she uses the one thing he loves and still possess’ to get him up and moving again. Cooking.

Dr. Rickson Edwards is smitten with Press from the moment he lays eyes on him. He quietly watches him for months until a face to face meeting in their building brings them closer together. That the attraction is mutual becomes evident once they spend more time together. But Press has a girlfriend, and Ric doesn’t share. But there is something about Press that makes Ric want to protect him and make him his. The problem with that is, Press doesn’t need a protector, he needs a lover.

Blair McKenzie has graduated from Le Cordon Blue and is putting himself through the final stages of school working as an escort. In a desperate attempt for any kind of adult companionship, Press calls the agency for a date. Blair is overwhelmed to be face to face with the chef he has been in awe of for years, Presscot Vaughan. When Ric once again brushes off Press’s request to talk to him, Blair is there to pick up the pieces. And the two of them hatch a plan to make Ric theirs.

There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears in this book. Mine and the characters! All three men are slightly broken and just a little bent, but together the three of them just might have a chance at happiness. Press is bitter because he’s blind and resents anyone that shows him an ounce of pitty. He is also strong, beautiful and talented. Ric loves his career as a doctor but lives under the shadow of an accident from his past. His domineering tendencies and his larger than life presence are just what the doctor ordered for Press and Blaine. And then we have Blaine the tall, sexy Texan with that accent that just drips honey. His weakness is his insecurity, and it almost costs him everything he worked so hard to achieve.

The way these three complement each other is equal parts insanity and security. Even though Ric presents as the Dominant, Press actually gives the orders in the bedroom. And Blaine’s pliant and submissive nature blends perfectly with his two dominant lovers. None of them want to share, but they find a way to compromise and make a life and a home as a threesome. I laughed and a cried while reading this story. Every emotion across the spectrum was there. Anger, love, hatred, longing, passion and an intensity between these three men that clearly evident in the writing.

This was my first read with this author, but it will not be my last. Definitely one to add to your TBR list. Be sure that you have Kleenex at the ready though, for the tears and the.. well, you know.

Cat’s Review: 4 💖💖💖💖 Hearts:

The book begins with Prescott coming home to his plush condominium and sexy female fiancé to celebrate his getting to go to Paris to cook alongside his idol. A terrible accident ensues leaving him blind. In this section Pres isn’t dealing well with the changes in his life. He is fortunate enough to be able to afford a staff consisting of a housecleaning service, a driver, and a stylist. The most important is his mother that finally grabs him by the ear, forces him out of bed and shows him he can still live life by using his other senses. Just when he thinks things are going well he is blindsided ( no pun intended) by his fiancé leaving him.

Wait! Isn’t this a MM book? Yes! Twist one! With his keen sense of smell he finds himself intrigued with his neighbour and they become good friends. Twist two…the horrible 2nd girlfriend…I was ready to cause her bodily harm and slap Pres for letting her use him so, though I felt sorry for him and could see his doing so out of loneliness and feeling he couldn’t do better.. these are just a couple of the twists as there are several. Which brings me to what I liked about the book.

Number one I loved the characters. I found Prescott intriguing. He was sexy, well known had it all going for him and was dealt some lots of lemons in life.( Good thing he is a chef !) I loved that things didn’t go smoothly for him though he had lots of money, and I loved how the story dealt with emotions in all the characters. I loved Ric and could relate to how he dealt with Pres. He isn’t the easiest man in the world to love.( which I also liked). I also liked Blair but not as much as Ric and Pres. I’m not sure why but something about him fell flat with me and I think the story would have been just as good if we didn’t go there, but on the other hand If I rate it as a ménage… It was a good one. I dislike ménages where everything goes so smooth and the relationships focus on one lover, this did focus on all three men and did show that this lifestyle is far from easy to live.

When you see it has forty some-odd chapters don’t freak out. They are short and concise (which I absolutely love) I like shorter chapters myself.

The only thing I didn’t really like is about 80 percent through, the story slowed down and it really focused a lot on the sex. It was good sex, and very hot, but just a bit much for my personal taste. I will say though it did not change my opinion of the story since I rate on storyline and characters (these are things that I look for in books I read. Everything else is just icing on the cake).

To sum it all up. This is a great story. With several twists and turns, hot, sexy, interesting characters, short, intriguing chapters, and a very satisfying ending.

If you like Chefs (I do,) hot doctors ( who doesn’t), escorts, stories dealing with disabilities, great characters, and very hot mansex this is for you!
