For fifteen years Luke Moore has lived by three rules: stay off his father’s radar, never spend more than a single night with any man, and never fall in love again. But one night of explosive sex and two men he can’t get out of his head have Luke breaking every one of his rules. Richard and Matthew push him past all his boundaries—both sexually and personally—and now he’s no longer hiding from his senator father. He’s taking him on. And he isn’t just falling for one man. He’s falling for two. If you’re going to break the rules, might as well break them big.
But Luke’s father has his reasons for hating how his son lives, and he’ll do whatever he can and use all his power to keep Luke away from Richard and Matthew.
Can this threesome find a way to make their unconventional relationship last with the world around them trying to pull them apart? And will Luke be able to keep breaking his rules for Richard and Matthew, or will he head back to his old way of life just when his new lovers want to pull him closer?
This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and an all-male menage relationship.
This was one of the first menage stories I ever read so is at least partially responsible for the fact that I enjoy reading this kind of story and grab each new one that comes out. When I picked up book 2 to review I realised I needed to catch up with Matthew, Richard and Luke from the beginning and I’m so glad I did. More by Sloan Parker is just as good, just as romantic and just as enthralling the second time round.
More pulls you in from the start. The story begins with Luke who is paranoid beyond all reason…or so it would seem, but as the story unfolds you realise that rather than paranoia what you are seeing is self-preservation. His first love affair ended badly and he has become determined never to put himself in that position again. His father is poisonous but has proved time and time again that he means business. Luke spends his life running. Running from his father, from love, from emotions and from himself.
A night at a sex club where he meets Richard and Matthew is about to change all that and sees his rule of only sleeping with the same person once get left in the dust.
Richard isn’t looking for love after being let down in his last relationship. His rules aren’t as stringent as Luke’s but he is just looking for casual sex with absolutely no ties. Matthew is the youngest of the three, bubbly and full of laughter but again with his own demons from the past. When the three of them get together for the night the rules change and they will each find themselves unable to give up on what they have found.
There is a lot of sex in this book. They meet through sex, they consolidate their relationship with sex, they even try to solve their problems with sex but there is also an underlying romance. Out of the three men Luke is the one that is fearful of a relationship, scared of what it will mean for him and his carefully constructed life and for the safety of those around him. He both clings to the men and tries to push them away as feelings that he has kept closed down for 15 years start to surface.
Luke’s fears are perfectly rational and his father does come after them. With designs on furthering his political career he can’t be seen to have a gay son, never mind a gay son in a relationship with two men. Luke has to decide whether he will slip back into his old ways and run or decide he has finally found something worth fighting for and stand his ground but will the cost be too high?
