Original review 9/8/2017
Jack Kelly. Driven. Volatile. Lonely. He grew up believing that some kinds of love are just wrong…
“No Kelly has ever been worth a damn in this town until me. But the money? I can’t talk to it, I can’t fuck it, and believe me, it’s a damn cold bed partner to wake up next to.”
Dylan Smith. Sensual. Nurturing. Bisexual. He sees nothing wrong with enjoying the pleasures in life…
“Just let yourself go. It’s okay to let me love you. To let both of us love you.”
Cate MacMillan. Curvy. Smart. Frustrated. She’s ready to shake off her insecurities and stop denying herself…
“No one else has ever made me feel like this. Wanton. Shameless. Free.“
Three friends who grew up together…
Their childhoods were shaped by one man, their resentments fueled by two misunderstandings, and all three will be pulled back into each other’s lives by a loss that affects them all. What they’ll find together isn’t what any of them expects… but it might be exactly what each of them needs.
MINE is a 104,000 word steamy, standalone MMF bisexual ménage romance with no cliffhangers. It’s intended for readers who enjoy explicit scenes of MF, MM, and MMF on the way to the kind of HEA that combines sweet with heat… and doesn’t let up until everybody is fully satisfied.
I loved this. I’m a sucker for a friends-to-lovers story, and when it’s not only one but TWO hot guys… Yes, please. I’m not going into the plot, as I’m sure others already have. It’s a story about misunderstood childhoods, oppressive relatives, and finding your own way.
Cate looses her grandfather and reunites with the boys she grew up with during summers at his home. But she obeys her upbringing and returns to her mother-run life. After the proverbial last-straw, she returns to the home she loves and runs into the men those boys became. And they are hot! Jack and Cate get off on the wrong foot and they can’t seem to find the right one. Dylan sails into the picture as calm as ever and plays three-way matchmaker. The trip is difficult for all three, with Jack fighting feelings that war with his upbringing, Cate trying to overcome her self-worth issues, and Dylan stuck in the middle, but loving both of them.
The story is well-written, the characters are developed, and I found no discernible problems. The ending is worth the feels.
