Synopsis

I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they don’t need to know anything, but that they are not alone in my heart.

They have accepted the situation. Stewart, because his life is too busy for the sort of obligations that are required in a relationship. Paul, because he loves me too much to tell me no. And because my sexual appetite is such that one man has trouble keeping up.

So we exist, two parallel relationships, each running their own course, with no need for intersection or conflict. It works for us, for them, and for me. I don’t expect it to be a long-term situation. I know there is an expiration date on the easy perfection of our lives.

I should have paid more attention, should have looked around and noticed the woman who watched it all. She sat in the background and waited, tried to figure me out. Saw my two relationships, the love between us, and the moment that it all fell apart.

She hates me.

I don’t even know she exists.

She loves them. I love them.

And they love me.

EVERYTHING else hangs in the balance.

3 Star Review

She has two lovers and I love that Maddison is so unapologetic about it. She kind of fell into the situation in the first place and she’s happy with the way her life is, for the time being, and as long as Stewart and Paul are OK with the way things are going she doesn’t care what any one else thinks. The first half of the book was HOT, with lots of dirty sex, and our heroine bouncing back and forth between her two men. Then enter the stalker, who does nothing more then watch, and at first you aren’t sure exactly what is going on there. Once you meet the resident Peeping Tom things go downhill from there. You find an interesting dynamic between Maddison and her mom, a twist to the love triangle, an accident, an explanation for the stalker, the confrontation between the two men which doesn’t go to the way you expect but somehow all of it just seems to fall a little flat. I thought that the book had real potential to be something phenomenal but it didn’t quite make it. It was had to get emotionally invested in the characters the last half of the book went just a little to fast for that. That being said I didn’t hate it, I just didn’t LOVE it. It was a light easy read, and good for something quick to take your mind off your problems for awhile.
