Drew is a fireman who loves the rush and is looking for a roommate to share costs. Scott is a doctor looking for somewhere to live that isn’t with his now ex-lover. The match seems more than perfect when Scott moves in and it’s more than just costs that they share.

So what happens when along comes EMT Eric with his blond good looks and boyish smile? Will this twosome be able to become a threesome or does it spell disaster for all?

My View:

Ok, so compared to literary masterpieces, 911 wouldn’t be so highly rated, but on pure enjoyment factor with good forward motion, some conflict and resolutions, it is a hit for me!

I loved the ménage and how it developed from a pair and a trio. I liked that the book was broken into three parts that really highlighted the stages of their relationships. It was interesting to see how the relationship worked when they didn’t see each other all the time. I loved that they were respectful to each other and when they had issues they worked them out. They all had their histories and learned to move on and deal with them. I thought the characters were well rounded and I could believe them all together.

The sex was Hot, Hot, Hot! While some may feel there was too much of it, I thought it did a good job expressing the feelings these guys had.

Only downside for me was that while 911 is set in Canada, there weren’t any overt indications of it being there except in city names. It could have just as easily been set in the United States. There are so few stories set in Canada that I want to have some regional flavour to cement it in my mind, especially as I am Canadian.

On the whole, a sexy book for which I will be sure to check the next in the series out just so I can see these boys again!
