Synopsis

Matthew

My brother and sister found their calling and people to share it with for the rest of their lives. Our parents haven’t said a thing, but I can read it on their faces.
What are you doing with your life, Matthew?
I’ve always been a songwriter but can no longer find the words. Everyone around me thinks I’m where I am in life because of my parents. I’m at a crossroads in my life and I don’t know which way to turn.
I don’t define my sexuality, I do what feels right. Love? Well, that is one melody I have yet to find the right notes to. Until them…

Thea

My childhood glittered with the lights of Hollywood while my adult life has been filled with the darkness of my ghosts and addictions. But all that is behind me and I am working on spinning the pain of my past into the promise of my future. Love? Well, that’s one addiction I have not yet dared to fool with. Until them…

Tristan

I’m running from a life where my future was decided for me. What to wear. Which company to manage. Who to marry. One day, I snapped, and I haven’t been back since. Now I manage my own businesses and I am who I want to be. But behind closed doors, I am still alone and I still long for things that I’ve been taught to hate. Love? Well, that’s one merger I’ve never braved. Until them…

Warning: This book contains two sexy hunks and is not recommended for the faint of heart. This is a long, thought-provoking read which will work through the angst of finding love amidst past hurts and the pain associated with not belonging, not fitting in.

Review

ThreeandHalfStars

I had a very hard time with this story.  I have not read any of the previous stories, so maybe that had something to do with my inability to really dig in and enjoy this story.
I found the writing distracting.  The different characters had very different voices, which I liked, but there were strange gaps in time, flashbacks (I think) and overall, their dialogue didn’t interact well.
Also, there was a glaring hole in this story.  How can someone who is supposed to be in the music business/industry not know about the child of the icky person who tried to ruin your dad?  I just couldn’t get past that.
All 3 characters came with tons of drama – and not the good kind.  I think the only small redeeming factor for me was Tristan’s dad.  Otherwise, it was drama, sex, drama, more sex.
Overall, this was an underwhelming story that had great potential.  Some of the scenes that involved sex were hot, but some were just strange and drawn out.  The relationship between Tristan and Matthew was truncated and hard to follow.  It was one of those relationship you normally see in juvenile teen girl plots – “I love you, no I hate you” type of stories.
Sadly, I don’t think I will want to read any more out of this series.

 ThreeStarThe story was okay. A good menage romance.

I was very excited to start reading this book. However, the further I got into the story the harder it was for me to keep up with time line. I also had a hard time understanding who was speaking at times. I haven’t read books 1-3 so it was a little tough to know where everyone was coming from and what everyone else’s story was, but I managed alright. I’m curious to know the stories of everyone else’s lives that were in this book so I will probably purchase the first 3 books.

I think the book needs to be condensed just a bit. There’s some things in the story that could probably be taken out to help the reader understand the story a bit better and not get so easily lost. I had to back track quite a few times to figure out who was speaking. Overall not too bad.

AuthorBio

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new adventure.

She now lives in Colorado working for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.
