I loved this sweet story. The relationship between Givon and North was one that all people should wish for. Unconditional friendship is such a gift.
Allison, while somewhat of a meek character, was a character that I grew to love. She was trying to figure out why she had ended up in between these two wonderful men.
The relationship that develops between the three characters is, in my mind, a very realistic one. I loved how each pair had their own relationship. It was not about the three of them figuring out how to work together because North and Givon already had a loving friendship.
As far as the mystery within the story – it was a good mystery, if not somewhat predictable. Even though I was able to guess some of the turns that this story, I am looking forward to the next story.
A hot cop and a hot biker? Hot damn. This story manages to combine a well-constructed murder mystery with every woman’s fantasy threesome.
North and Givon grew up together, traumatised by their equally abusive fathers. As adults, even though North runs a Motorcycle Club and Givon is the town sheriff, the two remain the closest of friends. On a camping trip, they interrupt the murder of a young woman named Allison.
Can the two men keep Allison alive and will the three of them be able to make a life together?
From hitmen to drug running, this story offers all sorts of intrigue. The awkward alliance between the Red Wolves bikers and the Sherrif’s department adds humour.
I’m not keen on instant, fated HEA stories, and I’m not entirely sure I like the two straight men and a girl storyline. I think this book would be much more believable (and hotter) with a true polyamorous threesome but this remains a simplistic straight girl’s fantasy. I’m also not entirely sold on the older men and young girl aspect of the relationship.
But maybe I’m thinking too hard. The sex is hot, the story is exciting and the author leaves room for more books to follow.
I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate high rollers. I try to write characters who aren’t cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.
I’ve been pretty fortunate in life to experience some amazing things. I’ve lived in France, traveled throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I am a mom to an amazing little boy. I’m surrounded by friends and family. And although I love holding a book in my hand, I absolutely adore my ereader, which I’ve named Ruby. I love to hear from readers so I’ve made it really easy to find me on the web.
