Title: Naughty By Night (Grad School Guys #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Devon Rhodes (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: May 17, 2016 – 101 pgs
Normally, finding the hot neighbor in bed with your boyfriend would be the end—not the beginning—of a wonderful relationship.
Marty can’t catch a break. Unable to confess to his neighbor Kevin that it’s Kevin he’s interested in, he ends up using advice to make a move on Jason instead. He moves too slowly, though, and Kevin and Jason end up dating each other, leaving Marty out in the cold.
Everything changes the morning Jason wakes up to find Marty in bed with him and Kevin. Jason wonders whether he’s made a big mistake in committing to Kevin. Marty’s mortified—he’s wanted Jason from afar for ages, but never had the courage to act on it. And Kevin is plotting something naughty that will give all three men what they’ve wanted all along.
Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released as a short story by another publisher. It has been considerably expanded for release with Pride Publishing.
This turned out to be an extremely interesting book that could have turned out so bad if it had not been the three guys that it was actually about.
Marty is not the type of guy in my opinion that is really comfortable in his own skin. He can handle the hook ups and such but it is what happens afterwards that makes him withdrawal into himself. He is not one to be able to carry on a conversation with others because I believe that he over thinks things and he projects his over thinking into being extremely awkward which then leads to dead end relationships with just about any one so he sticks to himself.
Kevin is the exact opposite of Marty. He turns everything into an opportunity of meeting new people and putting himself out there. He is the walking party and he decides to take Marty under his wing and drawl him out of his shell so he can get up the courage to ask out the mystery guy that Marty likes. Which in some crazy way he does but Kevin is just not to perceptive because Marty has a crush on him as well as the hot accountant that works next door to where Marty works, Jason.
Marty never gets up the courage and ends up losing both Kevin and Jason and the kicker is about losing them, he loses them to each other.
I love how Devon Rhodes took a relationship between these three men that seemed virtually impossible and was able to make them all into something more.
I started this post out by saying that this could have turned out so bad if it was not for the characters that it was about. Well to elaborate on that, I meant that these three men did not start out mutually deciding to start a relationship between the three of them. It started out as friendship and Kevin knew that they all had at least an attraction between the three of them but he decided it needed to be taken a step further. This could have turned into an epic failure and they could have lost each other.
Devon made these characters so that completed each other perfectly and made it so that each of them was the missing piece to the puzzle that completed itself once they all came together. It is easy to write book about threesomes but to make these characters so perfect for one another is a true gift because each of these characters have such different personalities. I do not see it being easy to bring these three different personalities together to make each one of them whole but Devon accomplished it and added bits and pieces of humor along the way. Was a great read and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
I have always had my nose in a book and my head in the clouds!
Now I’m finally doing what I love as a career.
