Rule of Three, Book 2
Former goodie-two-shoes Kassidy now has three pairs of shoes under her bed—hers, Chris’s and Dag’s. While she relishes the hot threesome that makes her friends jealous, she can’t deny things are…complicated. Namely, whom to tell about their unconventional relationship, and whom to keep in the dark.
In the dark category? Definitely Chris’s parents, which should be simple, since they live far away. Except they’ve sprung a surprise for their son’s thirtieth birthday. They’re coming for a visit. Then there’s Kassidy’s best friend Danielle, who’s home from Europe, clueless to recent events, and flirting with Dag like crazy.
Family, friends, coworkers and a wedding put three lovers’ best intentions to the test, making them wonder if this unique brand of love has a chance in hell of working out.
Warning: Contains three vulnerable hearts engaged in a ménage a trois, some man-on-man action, sizzling exchanges of graphic language, and rock-your-socks explicit sex. So yeah, it’s dirty, but also sweet.
Kass, Chris and Dag are in a dedicated threesome relationship. They are all living, loving and working together to make things work. Things begin to become a little tense as they try to work through schedules, friends, family and how to let them know about their new ménage a trois. Some will be accepting and others will no doubt react with preconceived prejudices. The first obstacle they must overcome is their jobs so the three decide to keep their personal and professional lives separate. They also decide that it would be best to keep everyone else out of the relationship until they learn more about what it is leading too.
Dag and Kass plan a birthday party for Chris. It is his thirtieth birthday and they want to have friends over to help celebrate. Everything seems fine until one of Kassidy’s friend’s starts to making passes at Dag and it really upsets Kass. Dag belongs to her and Chris so she knows that they need to explain their relationship to some of their friends or this situation will come up again. The talk with their friends ends up with more friends knowing about them than they had intended. The added bonus is that some of their friends had also tried threesomes and were not shocked.
Another problem that they are facing is Chris reaction to Dag and how uncertain he is when it comes to expressing his love for him. Dag gives Chris a special birthday gift, a silver pendant with the Trilogy charm that stands for “the intertwining of the heart, mind and spirit”. To Dag it represents the three of them and how they are three that are now one. The love and trust continues to develop between the three until once again they are faced with, what to do with family. When Chris, Kassidy and Dag go to visit with Kassidy’s parents the uncertainties surface once again about how do we explain this to family? The real family situation comes from Chris’ parents and their unexpected visit.
Will the trio be pulled apart by their families and their expectations? Can they find a way around all the obstacles that thrown in their paths? Or will the rhythm of three be disrupted by uncertainties and prejudices? ~CJ

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is a great look at how people look at others and their lifestyles, especially when they are not the same as their own. It is also about how three people love and overcome those preconceived ideas of what is normal. If you enjoy a good book full of love, lust, sex and joy this read is for you.
Would I read other books by this author: Yes! This author writes books that tastefully look at differences all humans have with one another. I cannot wait to see what she has to say in her next book.
