This is part of the Worthington series.
Daniel Ellis is a sophisticated, gorgeous force of nature. He doesn’t do relationships and he sure doesn’t fall in love. His bitter childhood taught him all he needed to know where love was concerned. One evening, an encounter with Matthew Worthington—his best friend’s brother—shook him to the core. Six months later the temptation of Matthew is further complicated by Shannon Whitney.
When Shannon meets Matthew she knows she’s found someone special. Walking in on Matt and Daniel in an intimate moment she realizes that she wants both men, equally.
Matthew and Shannon represent everything Daniel was ever afraid of wanting. The passion they ignite in him is soul searing, their complete acceptance of all that Daniel encompasses is over whelming. Can Matthew and Shannon teach him that true love does exist? Will the three of them be able to form a real family? Will Shannon and Matthew wait for Daniel’s Surrender?
Contains: M/M, M/M/F and aspects of light bondage.
So that you don’t get the wrong idea let me start off with I really liked this book, but argh another mid-series read!!! Those that have read my other reviews know I am not a fan of reading books out of order, but alas the plight of the reviewer we don’t always get a choice. OK, let’s be honest this is the coolest gig, reading books and telling you all what I think, and if it means reading series out of order then I can easily suck it up!! LOL
OK, OK back to Daniel… Like I said I really liked this book, Daniel is everything an alpha male should be – strong willed, stubborn, slightly emotionally damaged/unavailable, gorgeous, sexy, powerful, etc etc. Matty, oh sorry Mathew, is a great contrast for Daniel. He is sweet and sexy, strong in his own way and not ready to take “no” for an answer. It was great to see Matt grow into himself during this story. The third member of our trio, Shannon I was not as enamored with. She is very nice but kind of passive, which I guess when you have 2 strong males is what you need but, she could have had a little more “oomph” if you know what I mean. Not to say she was a complete push-over she did have her moments, but overall I would like to have seen more from her.
One of the great things about this book is that it had a real story to it. Not only did it focus on the relationship of the trio as a whole, but also between each of the characters individually. You could see each relationship really evolve. There was some great sex scenes don’t get me wrong, it is a very hot book, but it’s also a really good story of Daniel facing and overcoming his fears to find happiness and love.
I highly recommend this and will definitely be reading the others in the series and more from this author!!
