Restaurant owner Tom Fearnes has loved his partner Cass for as long as he can remember, but their work often keeps them apart. When he meets a striking young man named Jake on the vibrant streets of Camden Town, their heady first encounter takes an unexpected turn.

Jake Thompson can hardly believe his luck when he wakes up in Tom’s bed. Tom is gorgeous, kind, and . . . taken. Tom’s explanation of his open relationship leaves Jake cold, but Tom is too tempting, and when hard times force Jake to accept Tom’s helping hand, he finds himself between two men who’ve lost their way.

Cass Pearson is a troubled soul. He loves Tom with all he has, but some days it feels like he hasn’t much to give. Jake seems like the perfect solution. Cass risks everything to push Jake and Tom together, but Jake resists, wary, until the darkness of Cass’s past comes to call. Then Jake finds himself the last man standing, and it’s time to dig deep and shine a light for the men he’s grown to love.

Let me start with….. never has a book cover fit a book so perfect. Just by looking at it, it really doesn’t speak to you, but once you hit the last page, its like HOLY SHIT, she nailed it!!!!

This book was simply put.. AMAZING, dealing with a condition I had no experience with, and she really did her research. I felt every tic, slap, buzz that Jake made through the story. What a diverse set of individuals she gave us for this story. Tom had my heart, Cass had my soul, and Jake had my everything. This is more than a love story, more than a menage, it a story of discovery. so greatly written I read it in one setting. This is only the second book I’ve read from this author but it will not be my last. 


******5 buzzing STARS******




This has been one of the best MMM I have had the pleasure of "reading". Have to use that term loosely because I listened to it. It was very tasteful and believable and of course, super hot. :D 

Jake is really a special character and the amount of energy that Garret put into him is incredible. My BF's son has TS, but his isn't so much sounds. Each case is unique, just like each person. Garret did a wonderful job. 

Cass is another awesome character. He's the more wild and mysterious sort. The relationship that develops between him and Jake is sort of awesome. I like that he can laugh and make Jake laugh and talk about Jakes syndrome. It makes Jake feel more normal, and it gives them something to bond over, other than Tom. 

Tom. He's the first character you meet in this story. He's a busy sort of guy who seems to take on a lot of projects. Not quite sure why he tries to keep himself busy, maybe it's because Cass is always at the restaurant and it gives him something to focus on. Though Tom has all sorts of things going on, he still seems like an incredible boss to work for and he generally cares about, well, everyone.... especially Cass and Jake. He's a protective sort and it's really endearing. 

I love how these three come together and find their own way one on one and has a whole unit. You can't help but love all three for their own personalities. 

Craig Beck, you rocked it. This audio was everything and so are you
