Investment manager and always-in-control Richard Marshall has just landed a historic estate he’s waited years to acquire. Gone a lot for his work, he’s seriously craving his men. Yet it’s more than just the sex he’s missing. Emotionally-traumatized Luke is still dealing with the aftereffects of his father’s attempt to kill him, and Matthew’s trying to find his way as part of a menage relationship.
When Luke and Matthew come clean with Richard about what they’ve been feeling, he knows there’s only one way to solve all his problems: keep them close by accepting their help to investigate why someone wants to destroy the mansion he’s trying to save. When it becomes clear he’s put his family in danger, Richard has to choose between giving up control and pushing away the men he loves right when they’ve started to heal and have rekindled the explosive chemistry that brought them all together.
A menage relationship is hard enough. Add in danger, intrigue, a haunted mansion, and three sexually frustrated men, and it’s not a typical love story. It’s much more.
This was a nice sequel to a great ménage story. I didn’t love it, as there seemed to be more angst than necessary. These guys already have so much going against them, simply working through that would be enough challenge for any relationship, but there is even more angst awaiting our trio.
Just as with book 1, there is a lot of sex and a lot of drama, and a pretty good resolution by the end.
While I enjoyed this, it doesn’t come near to my appreciation for book 1.
Recommended for fans of book 1, with caution.
3.5 of 5 stars
