Blurb
Some bad girls need a firm hand to keep them in line.
I’m bad enough to need two.

Two older men who can teach me a lesson when I misbehave.
Two hot bodies to keep me warm in bed at night.
Two best friends who can learn to share a filthy-mouthed little brat like me.

After all… dirty girls need very dirty daddies.

***

Carrie Wells is nothing but trouble.

She’s wild and difficult. Not worth anyone’s time.

Carrie Wells is a beautiful little brat. She’s also a vulnerable young adult on my case list.

She’s half my age and totally off limits. I’m breaking every rule in the book by giving her somewhere to stay when she’s out on the streets with nowhere to go. And I’m breaking every rule of friendship by holing her up in my best friend Jack’s house while he’s away on business.

I thought life was difficult enough when I fell for the girl, but it gets a whole lot harder when Jack comes home early and finds a beautiful stranger causing chaos in his house.

And a whole lot harder still when he falls for her too.

He’s the one guy on this planet I’d share my last supper with. I’d share it gladly.

I’m just not so sure how I feel about sharing Carrie Wells

Review
I feel like I should post a disclaimer first, I can’t remember the last time I read or listened to an m/f book let alone mfm. I purchased this one because Joel Leslie narrated part of it. I found myself getting irritated with Carrie Wells the brat. It was such a poor me, no one understands me, so I’m going to push everyone as far as I can attitude. I got the measure of her character fairly quickly so it felt like it went on too long. Having said that it’s a testament to Jade West’s writing and Stacy Holmes performance that it prompted such a reaction. The first two thirds of the story was building up to the dirty Daddies part. The main focus is Carrie who is in foster care, fighting every one, and her case worker Michael. He desperately wants to help Carrie, if she would let him. Michael’s attitude worries his best friend Jack, who can’t understand why Carrie has gotten under Michael’s skin. Not to give too much away we come to the last third of the book. The point I was checking my headphones worked properly and no one else on the train could hear! Steamy is definitely the word. This was a well crafted part of the story. I admire the stamina of two 40+ year olds with a very horny 18 year old. As a reader of mm I appreciated the way the Jade West portrayed two heterosexual men learning to share Carrie. There was an understandable level of hesitation on Michael’s part being close sexually to Jack whilst Jack was more adventurous.
The story switches POV between Carrie, Michael and Jack with the three narrators each taking their characters. In this format they each voice the other character’s as they are conveying what happens and what was said that them. It was a little of putting at first but I soon settled into it. Stacy Holmes gives a very good impression of a rebellious teenager crying out for love. Smutty McDiamid’s portrays Michael very well. He conveys the turmoil he is in not being attracted to one of his clients but going against everything he believes is right. Joel Leslie is his usual excellent self bringing Jack, the linchpin of the three, into the strong character he is. He’s the one who gets through to Carrie.
As I said earlier, there is a lot of steam towards the end of the book, there is just a lot of angst and teenage drama to go through first.

4 of stars out of 5
