This series has had it's ups and downs, but this is definitely an up. The steam factor was totally on as well as the angst and anxiety that Travis and Cassidy are going through as they struggle with a definition for who they are sexually. Travis has the support of his family regardless and knows that, but Cassidy had a totally different experience. Add in Travis' need for pain and that muddy's the water more. And then we add in Ashley. Yikes!
Ashley is a free spirit and has no qualms living life to its fullest potential. If that means wanting more than one man at a time, then she's not shy about it. Finding out those two men want each other is just icing on the cake. The sexuality that Ashley exudes is infectious, as is her joy in just living every day. Who can't learn from that attitude?
The family unit is no longer just a man and a woman. There are many possible permutations, but this is two men who love each other with a woman they both love. Society is not quite ready for that, at least Rocky Mountain Home isn't. It gets a little dicey and I liked that the author didn't tiptoe around the animosity that fear can foster when it is something unfamiliar. And while the trio don't advertise, they aren't hiding either. I liked that. Let your flag fly, as it were. The ending was a little predictable given all the controversy and animosity toward the trio but it was the added push to get things out in the open and dealt with. This is a series that I will read as long as the author keeps writing.
Three hurting hearts. Too many secrets. One chance to conquer their fears.
Over the past year, Travis Coleman lost the two people he allowed closest to his heart. Both gave him ultimatums—then left. Hell if he needs that kind of pain again. Time to move forward without the friends he thought might save him from his dangerous cravings.
When Ashley Sims returns to Rocky Mountain House, her rambling lifestyle isn’t all she’s hoping to change. Travis snagged a piece of her, and while getting tangled in his issues again might be crazy, she hasn’t given up on him.
Nine months ago, Cassidy Jones walked away to stop his best friend from making a huge mistake. Temptation lingers, though, and when Travis shows up on his turf accompanied by a sensually uninhibited woman, the combination tosses fuel on the banked fire.
Passion flares among the three of them, as hot as the summer days. But are they willing to push the limits, and fight for love?
Warning: Dirty fighting, dirty talk, dirtier sex—secrets are coming out. Get ready for ménage a trois and cowboy-on-cowboy action, with ropes and crops and the kind of relentless love strong enough to set a man free.
