Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5
This was a really well done menage story! I really enjoy M/M/M stories but they can be difficult to write. I assume. It is hard to keep the focus off of any one couple with the third thrown in for good measure. More than once I’ve given up on a book because it went that way. But not so this one.
Mac is an investigative journalist who wants to prove that Daniel Terrebone, billionaire art collector, stole a statue called The Golden Dancer. But when his boss is in a bind, he gets sent to cover the dress rehearsal of a ballet opening. Since both of his parents are professional ballet dancers, he is the perfect choice.
Mac is enthralled with Trelain, star of the ballet. They spend an amazing night together. Until Daniel scoops Trelain up for a weekend away. Torn between the man he wants and the man he wants to pin an art heist on- Mac follows his heart and hormones.
The three men coming together was very organic. It never felt forced or that one of the men was there as an accessory. The heat between each partnership is bested only by the heat between the three. They actually talked about the dynamic between them; which doesn’t happen nearly enough, in my opinion.
On the back burner is the art heist. Who really did steal the statue? Why? Where is it? There are some twists and turns that leads to a good conclusion that wasn’t tied up neatly.
An enjoyable read with a decent mystery. If you are wary or hesitant of trying a menage book, this is a good one to start.
Cover Art is eye catching and works for the story.
