Jamie and Scot are desperately trying to work through the traumatic events of the last two months, but the painful truth is they can’t do this alone.
Scot is trying his best to support his husband. Trying not to hate what happened between Davide and Jamie while they were held prisoner. Davide was the enemy—the one who Scot saw as the bad guy in all this. The one he could blame all his relationship problems on to, but as Scot slowly gets to know the man behind the handsome face, the stern exterior and the hottest body he’s ever seen, he’s forced to look inside himself and see the truths he still can’t bear to think about.
Jamie loves Scot and Davide equally. Is it too much to ask for them all just to get along? Being stuck in between two stubborn, domineering, strong minded men is exhausting, and not in the way Jamie had hoped. The only way they can move on, is if they move on together, and Scot and Davide seem determined to not let that happen.
When Jamie’s plotting to move them forward as a threesome comes to light, Scot and Davide finally agree on something—that will never happen. Scot’s shared Jamie before and it hurt like hell. There’s no way he can do it again. No matter how much he desires Davide sexually—love isn’t going to grow between them.
Davide already loves Jamie—loves him in a way he has never experienced before. He gave his life for Jamie and he’d do it again in a heartbeat, but he can barely keep a relationship together with two people, let alone three. The idea of trying to make a ménage work between them all is just a fantasy—one which he’s not sure he wants to take part in.
He wants to leave—let Scot and Jamie work things out, but the more he pulls away, the more they struggle. Davide finds himself in a position he never thought he would be in—in between two men he desires more than anyone else, but not able to have either.
A journey of two, trying to become three.
Jamie never does anything the easy way and that includes his ability to recover from his recent kidnapping. As much as he and Scot try to work things out and get back any sense of normality the tension is high and their usually active sex life is nonexistent. Jamie is riddled with guilt over what happened with Davide and Scot can’t quite forgive or forget yet the only time they both seem calm is when Davide is around.
Scot shows a lot of patience with both of them even though it is eating him up inside. He knows his husband has fallen in love but he also knows his husband still loves him yet he needs to seek constant reassurance from Jamie that he won’t leave. As a compromise he moves Davide into the guest house on their estate so he can still have contact with Jamie whilst they both recover.
Nicole Colville managed to do it again with this book. After Jamie cheated, even under duress, you would imagine all his effort going into saving his marriage. He not only does that but he opens up the question to his husband and lover about the possibility of them becoming a ménage. It shouldn’t work! Given what we know about Scot and his total love and possessiveness it definitely shouldn’t work but work it does although it is not easy and doesn’t happen overnight.
The intricacies of three men in one relationship are difficult enough but with these three men it is like dynamite. Davide is very much the alpha male, he’s actually a trained Dom, and in the bedroom he has no intention of handing over the reins. This is perfect for Scot but not until Scot allows himself to admit it and until that happens things are going to be tense.
There is still a lot going on in the background with the twins and the other revelations to hit us in Hidden Deceit and there is a whole lot of Burton and Victore drama but for me this book was solely about the relationship between Davide, Scot and Jamie. I never thought I would hear myself saying I wanted a bit more sex in this series but in this one I would have! I wanted to see more of their dynamic in the bedroom as Scot was initially so scared and out of his comfort zone.
Have I mentioned how much I absolutely love this series?
