Restaurant owner Tom Fearnes has loved his partner Cass for as long as he can remember, but their work often keeps them apart. When he meets a striking young man named Jake on the vibrant streets of Camden Town, their heady first encounter takes an unexpected turn.
Jake Thompson can hardly believe his luck when he wakes up in Tom’s bed. Tom is gorgeous, kind, and . . . taken. Tom’s explanation of his open relationship leaves Jake cold, but Tom is too tempting, and when hard times force Jake to accept Tom’s helping hand, he finds himself between two men who’ve lost their way.
Cass Pearson is a troubled soul. He loves Tom with all he has, but some days it feels like he hasn’t much to give. Jake seems like the perfect solution. Cass risks everything to push Jake and Tom together, but Jake resists, wary, until the darkness of Cass’s past comes to call. Then Jake finds himself the last man standing, and it’s time to dig deep and shine a light for the men he’s grown to love.
I loved Misfits! It is the telling of three men finding what they were missing, each bringing something different to the table.
I really liked that it started out with Tom and Cass incorporating Jake in each their own ways. I’m not a big fan of open relationships, but I know it’s common. In this case, it allowed for them to find what they were unconsciously searching for.
All three characters were well defined and had unique-to-themselves personalities. Tom and Jake’s relationship was different than Cass and Jake, and different than Tom and Cass. I love ménage when it is a trio where everyone cares for everyone else.
The London background was stellar, and I loved the descriptions of the different neighbourhoods. Hearing about Tom and Cass’s food “empire” was interesting and I like how it was more incorporated than just being their jobs.
The story flowed well and kept me engaged. There aren’t any big action scenes, but several lovely intimate moments. I always knew who was talking and liked that we did get to hear from all three voices.
I definitely recommend Misfits!
I LOVED the narration of the book. Craig Beck was able to do the different regional English accents and each character had a voice. He was easy to listen to and made the story that more enjoyable. Lots of emotion and made it a production rather than just a retelling. I will definitely look for more books read by him!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
