Three to Tango

Three to Tango by Chloe Cole and L.C. Chase is the story of three roommates who secretly love each other. Melody and Chase have been friends forever, but Melody has wanted Chase for years. Chase has never been with a woman, and he chastises himself whenever something about her catches his attention. Alec, the third roommate, is bisexual, though he has never discussed his sexuality with the others. He is attracted to them both, but he doesn't want to ruin the great living arrangement and friendship they share.

Things begin to change the day that Mel and Chase decide to make Alec the object of a bet. One of them will get Alec as a new boyfriend (it's not just lust they're after), and the loser will get laundry and dish patrol. Alec is confused by the sudden attention until he overhears the two discussing the bet. While a little hurt, he decides to show Mel and Chase that the three of them could have something really special together.

I like this book. There are strong characters, humor, heartbreak, and some really hot scenes. The reader never doubts the love and friendship between the three, and the focus of the story stays on that relationship. There are no outside characters or scenes. I would love to read a follow-up, since I find myself wondering if the families and friends will support this alternative relationship. I would also like to see how Melody, Chase, and Alec grow and change over time. Great story!

Best friends and roommates, Jace and Melody have been inseparable since middle school. Although Mel knows Jace is gay, she has yet to find a man who can compare. When they decide to add a third roommate to their nest, they both find themselves falling for him. It's not the first time they've wanted the same man, but this time, they're both determined to get him. Agreeing Alec should be the one to choose, they begin a heated competition for a place in Alec’s bed and his heart. Winner take all, no hard feelings...

Alec has lived with his two gorgeous roomies for six months. So far, he’s managed to relegate his desire for each of them to his daydreams. When he discovers that they both want him and have decided to compete for his attention, he sets out to prove that it can be win-win situation for all of them, and he shouldn’t have to choose.

Sometimes it takes three to tango.
