Josh and Aubrey become a couple after meeting at work. The job is on a mac-n-cheese food truck, and their boss, Seth, has offered both of them the chance of a lifetime at their age—to manage his new, second truck. As they begin to work together more, their feelings deepen.
But Josh has a secret; one he feels he must tell Aubrey before their relationship gets more serious. He’s bisexual, and has ex’s of both sexes. One of those is Kristoff,
Josh’s most long-standing relationship to date, who left Austin and Josh behind to answer the call of duty at his parents’ business.
Now Kristoff is back and wants to reconnect with Josh. Seeing the only person he’s ever loved, just as he’s falling for Aubrey, completely throws Josh. Just when he thought he could finally forget the man and be happy with someone else; old feeling resurface. Aubrey’s confused, too, since she feels a strange pull to this man she should regard as competition for Josh’s heart.
As the three navigate a possible ménage situation, they each have doubts about its viability. But in the end, will they be left with nothing, or will the three get a taste and be hooked?
Triple the Taste is book two in the Savour series. It focuses on bi-sexual Josh and his girlfriend Aubrey getting together with his ex Kristoff.
I must admit my greatest enjoyment in the book was the few mentions of Seth and Ben’s relationship – the couple from book one – which is disappointing because I love a good ménage. This, however, was not. There was too much telling and not enough showing and the chemistry was luke warm at best. Even the characters didn’t really feel it. At one point Aubrey tells Seth:
“Josh and I pretty much love each other.”
“Pretty much?” He threw her a quick disbelieving look, one thick blond eyebrow raised.
“You know what I mean. I wouldn’t call us a couple of destiny or anything but we’re way more than friends.”
Even wanting to get together as a threesome was based solely on past feelings and physical attraction and nothing on personality. They talked everything to death beforehand and the bedroom scenes were boring. Nothing really happens in the rest of the book, other than setting up characters for sequels, and it ends with a very tentative happily for now.
I am hoping that this book is an aberration in the series and that the author was just not familiar with ménages and that is why it fell flat. I will try the third book when it comes out and see as I enjoyed the first book.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
