I've always been on my own. My life used to consist of nothing but work, keeping Allen out of trouble, and if I had time, sleep. Then I became their maid.


Every day more than half a million people tune in to watch my show. They trust me. I know it's because I’m the only son of the prominent Emerson family. However, I like to believe it because I'm honest no matter what story I report on. I'm honest about everything but the man I've been f**king for the last four years… and now her.


First I want three things: First Maxwell Emerson and Jane Chapman both in my bed. Second, to be the best bloody chef in the country. Third, to figure out how to simultaneously get the first and second things I want without any of us getting hurt.



I've never enjoyed any of the books that I've read involving a ménage à trois. It tends to be only about the steamy scenes with little to no story keeping it together. The only reason I thought I'd give it another chance is the author, Amelia LeFay, J.J. McAvoy's pen name. Black Rainbow, Sugar Baby Beautiful and That Thing Between Eli & Gwen are some of my favourite contemporary romances. If anyone can make me invested in a storyline involving a ménage à trois, it would be her or it's just not possible.

Apparently it's possible because I loved it.

The characters were very real to me. They each had a back story that make you understand who they are and the reasoning behind their actions.

I adore Jane. Everything that's happened to her could of made her so hard and heartless, but she's not. She's understandably pessimistic, hard-working, caring and very sassy.

I wasn't sure about Max in the beginning, but I grew to love him. He's rich, powerful and his cockiness was very repelling at first. Those moments of vulnerability that he shows and wouldn't want anyone to know existed and his story were what made me see past the cockiness to the point I like it now. My heart really softened towards him as the story progressed.

Wesley is cocky like Max, but in loveable way from the start. He moved across the world to be with Max, which would sound crazy if anyone else did it, but felt like typical Wesley to me even after knowing him for such a short time. He came across as a very passionate person who puts all of himself into everything he does.

I love this story and became so invested in it and its characters. The steamy scenes were amazing, but so was the story, which is what a lot of stories involving a ménage à trois lack. It was fast-paced, but never felt rushed. I could of read this book from start to finish at once, but wanted to prolong the inevitable end.

I'm very anxious to find out how the story continues.
