Blurb:

Tripp has one main job, and that’s to get into the cult’s compound to save the two remaining hostages. The best way he knows how to do that is to get caught himself and thrown into one of those cells. He’s an expert at locks and can get out of anything. He’s not worried until the guards put him in a cell with Jacob Klein. It’s only then that Tripp starts to panic for the little man’s survival.

Paulo Carreiro just needs to find work after retiring from the military, and he doesn’t want to ask his brother Locke for a job. When Phillip Avery calls him to come work for him, Paulo gets a weird vibe. The minute he sees the compound he knows something isn’t right. It’s his dumb luck that the very place he gets a job his brother is investigating for kidnapping gay men and holding them hostage.

My View:

Silent Love is the third book in the Lakehouse Security series. I really enjoyed the first book, liked the second a little less and, unfortunately this one even less.
This book follows the tale set-up in the first two, that of an evil cult holding gay men hostage in a dungeon. It features sexy-ass and funny Tripp who was introduced previously. It’s his job to rescue the final two prisoners, one of whom is Jacob, who has withdrawn into his own mind and doesn’t speak.
Of course, Jacob is instantly drawn to Tripp and finds comfort in his arms both before and after the escape. The only other man Jacob is drawn to is Paulo, who played a part in getting them out of the cult and exposing the truth about the cult leader. So with Jacob being attached to both Tripp and Paulo and both men being attracted to Jacob it was bound to end up in a threesome.
The same thing that happens in a lot of menage stories happens here too—while there is chemistry between one or two sides of the triangle, the overall bond just isn’t there.
I liked Jacob, despite being mostly silent for most of the story, his character was strong and unique. I understood why he cared for both men and I understood why they cared for him. What I didn’t get is Paulo and Tripp’s feelings for each other. It was more like they ended up together because of how they felt for Jacob, not because they were truly bonded. That isn’t to say that the sex between the three of them wasn’t hot, because it was. Kelley excels at writing smoking sex scenes, that’s for sure.
