Veronica Thomas has been in love with two men since she was seventeen. One introduced her to passion. The other has shown her how to satisfy it. Now that she’s older, she still wants them both.
Wolf Tarrant was more than willing to share Very with his best friend and lover, Lord Michael Kensington. But two years ago, Michael ran from the unconventional relationship growing between the three of them.
When Michael returns from America, things have changed drastically for all of them. Rushing headlong into a scorching, passionate reunion may be a bad idea. Michael’s secrets have the power to keep them apart forever, but Very and Wolf have secrets of their own.
Held prisoner by their fears, the three struggle to overcome lies and mistrust to find the freedom to love one another as they have always desired.
Wolf and Michael had been lovers for years. But Michael kept running away from the feelings he had for Wolf, thinking that they just weren’t normal. But he always returned and Wolf always took him back. Michael also had strong feelings for Very but he was afraid of them too. He realized that he wanted both Wolf & Very together and instead of facing the pair and figuring out if it would work, he ran.
Very always knew that she loved Michael and accept Wolf as part of the deal knowing that Michael loved him. She wasn’t prepared for to feel the love for Wolf but now that she has it she wouldn’t give it up for anything. After two years the pair finally marry but deep inside they’re both still quietly waiting for Michael’s return.
When Michael does return the reunion is one for the history books. Hot and wonderful and loving and I could feel the love emanating from the trio. But after 2 full days of doing nothing but eating and having sex they have to slide back into reality. Unfortunately Wolf and Very weren’t prepared for the reality Michael provided when his wife walked in the door. Wolf and Very are sad, disappointed and very, very angry but there’s more to the story than they first realize. When they do get all of the facts will it be enough to allow Michael back in their lives? And if they do, will he end up running again?
I have to say that I’ve been waiting for this story from the first moment that this trio was introduced. I wanted to see all three of them find the love and wonderful relationship that I knew they could have. But I certainly wasn’t prepared for the way the book went but that was a bonus. Kane definitely surprised me with how the book came together but it was done so well how could I complain? lol
First Wolf and Very’s relationship – it was so great. I have to admit to almost wanting Michael to just not come back. If he was going to hurt them then I wanted him far, far away. But the way the story was written it just wasn’t complete without Michael there. Michael had his many issues and he had to work them out in his head. I wish we would have gotten a bit more from Michael and his thoughts but his inclusion in the relationship really hinged on Wolf and Very’s acceptance of him. This passage when Wolf asks Very about love really got to me:
“Why does a person love another? What makes you love someone in particular, and not someone else?”
“Well,” Very said tentatively, not sure he really wanted an answer. “I don’t know.”
Wolf laughed softly. “I don’t either.” He chewed his lip a moment. “You can say, ‘Oh, I love his wit, or his strength, or his tenderness. Perhaps his kindness or his intelligence.’ But the truth is that he may be no more witty, no stronger, no more tender, or smarter or kinder than any other man. Less so than many, actually. And still you will love him.”
Some of the other passages in the book were quite touching – I wish I could share them all but I’d be copying half of the book! lol
Kane also brought in past characters and dealt with Ian, Sophie and Derek’s inability to conceive a child. I loved the way this was handled and would love to see even a little short about their lives now. (A little cryptic, I know)
I love this series and this was a wonderful addition to it. I can’t wait to see who’s next…although I have my suspicions. lol
