So Niall has always known he'll be in a menage relationship, especially given he was raised by his TWO grandpas and grandma. He is aboriginal (part) and prayed to get a vision of his mates. It finally happens, and at a health fair he sees psychiatrist Matt, and knows he's one of the men. At first he's a bit freaked to tell Matt that he expects to live in a threesome and this is all soul-mates destiny, but lo and behold, Matt was afraid to tell him he wants a threesome. Happy happy, now they just have to find the little blue-eyed blond from the dream. When Matt goes to the hospital to help one of his patients, he sees Trevor, a little blue-eyed blond. Trevor instantly feels the connection and even when introduced to Niall and the concept, goes along with it, but is very independent and refuses to admit it's more than just sex, however when a stalker shows up (sorry Chris), he finally admits he loves them, and then of course all their friends have to band together to find him when the stalker kidnaps him. This seemed a bit new agey to me. These guys talk and talk and talk, and most of the time, are completely in tune with their feelings and emotions and destiny. It's totally easy, they find each other within a week, they all think it's the greatest thing ever, and except for the stalker, life is perfect, Matt and Niall are rich and successful, Trevor is cute and feisty. It was hot and sexy, but I really didn't think most guys (or women for that matter) are that self-aware. It's also part of a series which would explain all the friend pairings in the story, but you can read it without. If insta-love, fated soul-mates and talky guys don't make you nuts, it's a sexy menage read which was what I was looking for when I picked it up.
Look at me reading long books. :-) Johnny, to his band, manager, and fans dismay, quits his rock-star job and moves to a small town to start a new life with plans to adopt a child. He's never even admitted he's gay, but is finally starting to accept it. When Sheriff Virgil shows up to check out the new resident, he comes on so strong Johnny is almost overwhelmed and I felt a bit pushed into a relationship without knowing whether he was coming or going. Virgil is definitely the alpha here, and most of the time Johnny just goes along, not that he doesn't find it a turn on. Things settle down for them, when suddenly the Sheriff shows up with two little kids whose parents both died and before long they are one happy family with 3 dogs and a passel of cats. I found the Sheriff to be VERY pushy, I was kind of torn between believing he'd back off as he seemed to say, but then he never really seemed to. Johnny seemed younger than 36 and if he's been in Hollywood for 10 years I thought he'd be more jaded, but he's just such a nice guy EVERYONE loves him. Maybe everything was a bit too perfect and easy, but if you're in the mood for a sweet romance between two very opposite guys with a dose of cute kids and dogs, a good choice.
When Luke walks into Sebastian's tattoo shop, he'd rather drive a tattoo needle through his eye than speak to him, but he needs the money and Luke needs a tattoo. They were first loves, but Luke cheated on him repeatedly and Sebastian finally had enough but has never gotten over it. However Luke flirts away and despite his better judgement, Sebastian ends up in bed with him, but then backs off. Okay, I get that Sebastian's Dad said people can change, and I don't prescribe to the once a cheater always a cheater theory, especially if it was when you were young and stupid, however I got a bit annoyed by Luke being offended that Sebastian would even question his sincerity. Kind of a "how dare you assume I might cheat, I said I wouldn't" attitude when, ummm, I believe that is a familiar tune. I'm of the mind, that if cheaters want you to trust again, they do whatever the hell you say to prove it, not be offended because you don't believe them. Granted, we didn't get in Luke's head, but his attitude that Sebastian should just get over it and believe him irked me. On the upside, I liked that the author did an epilogue a year later which said it wasn't all sweetness and light, and there were issues over the trust. I think if I'd been expected to believe that they just strolled off into the sunset to HEA I would have bet money they'd never make it to another anniversary. So that made up quite a bit for the attitude issues I had. Very sexy though.
