Coming Clean

Dirty Laundry Series #3

Cade Lorins and Grant Michaelson have been friends since they were young children. They’ve laughed and shared all the normal growing up experiences together. At 15, Cade shared with his best friend that he was bi-sexual and feared that he would loose him. Instead, Grant accepted that fact with little notice. Each dated, checked out girls and got jobs.

Cade mother had him pair up with Vivi for a dance partner. He loved dancing with Vivi and teased her that it was like foreplay. But when Vivi met his best friend, they quickly fell in love. Instead of breaking up their friendship, they simply included Vivi.

Grant and Vivi have been married 10 years. They openly discuss their sexual fantasies and Grant is willing to fulfill as many of them as he’s comfortable with and Vivi has no problems doing the same thing. Her latest fantasy though may change their relationship and their friendship with Cade forever. She’s dreamed of the threesome, both men and her.

Grant has no problem with this and knows that Cade has looked at his wife with desire before, but how do you ask your best friend to make love to your wife?

This story is wonderful, fantastic and I don’t think I have the adjectives to describe it. It’s sexual, emotion driven and tender. I was quickly involved with these characters and felt apart of the story.

The characters are very well done. Cade knows Grant has never had sex with another man and is leery to agree to this proposition. He loves his best friend as a friend but does he dare make him his lover. And what about Vivi? Vivi loves her husband with her whole heart but she also cares deeply for Cade. No matter what, she will not jeopardize her marriage and if Grant says no, it’s no. Grant isn’t sure what to think. He knows he’s hetro and not bi but it’s Cade and he can actually see having sex with Cade. For some reason, he doesn’t get upset when Cade is with Vivi either. Is something wrong with him?

I can’t say enough about the emotional pull that comes from these characters. I was drawn in and felt their pain and anguish as they tried to figure out what to do. Things weren’t easy and complications could arise. After all, how do you proposition your best friend to have sex in front of your wife?

Though this story is fairly short, it’s big on sex and emotions. I wasn’t sure I would like it do to the m/m factor but found that I couldn’t put the story down. (I’m still not a big fan of m/m, though.) The premise is best friends becoming lovers which I always love and this one is just more special as it has three best friends. I only wish it were longer!
