Cris Sable doesn’t walk into popular gay bar Big Dick’s expecting to find more than a casual hookup, so he’s surprised by his instant attraction and intense chemistry with go-go dancer Jake. Jake’s sexy as hell and a firecracker in bed. The sparks between them are undeniable, and what starts as a hookup evolves into something deeper, possibly permanent—until Jake dumps Cris flat on his ass for no good reason.
Angry and confused, Cris finds comfort with his longtime friend and employer Charles “Chet” Greenwood. Cris’s emotional state stirs up Charles’s long-buried feelings for Cris. Feelings he’s denied for eight years, because Cris is his employee and therefore off limits—not to mention two decades younger than Charles. Cris admits he has feelings for Charles, too, but he’s still getting over Jake and both men agree nothing can happen between them while Charles is still Cris’s boss.
Jake Bowden knows he doesn’t have anything to offer a guy. He’s a go-go dancer with no degree and no real career aspirations. He’s also used to everyone who loves him leaving, so it makes sense to cut Cris loose before things get too serious. Cris is kind, passionate and totally deserves a guy like Charles—wealthy, owns a home, successful businessman. Jake can’t compete so why bother? They’re better off together. But when Jake has a serious personal crisis, Cris and Charles unite to pull him back together, and the three men discover it’s possible—maybe even inevitable—to fall in love with more than one person at a time.
I am a fan of AM and to me this is another side of her writing. I really liked this story and who can not like a hot menage. In this one we have 3 very different men who come together. We have Cris a porn star, Jake a go-go dancer and Chet a wealthy business man.
Cris is running from his family so when we get bits and pieces of his story, we learn why he turned to porn. He has been doing it for about 6 years and is ready for a change. Cris wants to find love and when he meets Jake he thinks that might be possible.
Jake is a go go boy who doesnt know what he wants, he is high strung and doesnt think things through before he acts. Jake meets Cris at the bar while he is dancing and the sparks fly immediately. They go home together and the sex is hot. Both men feel the chemistry but Jake runs scared the next day. He does something to Cris that leaves him hurt and confused. Cris turns to his friends for support. Taro is Cris’s best friend and I really cant wait to hear his story but he helps Cris make some sense of what might have happened to Jake. Cris goes to Jake to see what happened between them and Jake acts like he doesnt care. He says he wants to think about things because he feels Cris is in love with someone else and is afraid if he starts something with Cris then he will lose him. Cris goes to his friend and boss Chet for another issue and they find themselves with chemistry of their own to deal with. Chet is a wealthy man who runs a porn studio for gay men to have a safe place to explore their sexuality. Chet and Cris have been friends since he starts filming for Chet. Chet has been in love with since they met but would never do anything about it since he was his boss.
I am trying not to give too much away because you have to read this story to enjoy it. Chet is an older man who though he was in love once but it turned out the man wanted him for his money. Since then Chet has kept to himself and threw all his passion in the studio. He feels at his age his time has come and gone and love is no longer an option for him. Boy was he wrong.
Chet, Cris and Jake come together again and all have feelings for each other but dont know what to do about it. Cris is in love with both men but he feels he couldnt have them both and how would it even work out for them. Jake needs support and Cris and Chet provide that and Chet finds himself falling for Jake as well. Now with Jake getting the help he needs all 3 men feelings for each other come out and they try to make a manage work I love that at this point AM slows down the story a little. She is setting them up to take their new relationship to a new level. So towards the end of this book 1 , Chet, Jake and Chris are going to move forward and I cant wait to read their first love scene so I hope AM hurries this up….
