This is a story about a triad relationship between three very different individuals. First there is Leigh who along with her brother runs the family construction business. Leigh is most happy around her crews and men and has never considered herself overly feminine, but now as a surrogate for her brother and his husband, Leigh is more emotional than she’s ever been and feeling vulnerable as well. One thing is evident, Leigh lives to help and comfort others even when she doesn’t realize it and that comes in handy when her brother asks her to let his best friend Hudson Richmond move in with her to make sure she is eating right and taking care of herself and the child she is carrying for him. After a brutal attack and a stint in a facility following a suicide attempt, Hudson has sold his restaurant and condo and is in life limbo. While he knows Leigh, he’s never really gotten to know her but the minute he moves into her home he finds that she makes him feel calm and he can use another friend. When Hudson brings home David Warner, the new police chief after some heating and pipe issues at the condo Hudson is leasing out to the city for the new chief, it becomes evident David and Leigh have a bit of a past, but what is even more evident is the attraction that is zooming all around these three when they are together.
It is so rare that I fall completely in love with the main characters in a book, but I did so with these three despite their faults, hang-ups, and sometimes craziness. I’ll admit right off the bat that Leigh for a lot of people will be a somewhat difficult character to love, but for me I could see past her strong outer shell, to the vulnerable little girl underneath. Never able to please her mom, she spent more time with her dad and his construction crews and it became a point of contention between her parents and they divorced which she blames herself for. Deciding to help her brother and his husband have the child they want was something she felt compelled to do and while she seemed totally at peace with the decision she has some moments that threaten her sanity.
Hudson was broken and damaged and not sure how to move on with his life. I hated what he’d been through and watching him struggle daily was so hard, but he showed strength in his willingness to get better even when it scared him to do so. I loved that taking care of Leigh gave him a purpose and despite being gay his whole life, she made him feel something he wasn’t quite sure about. I’ve always loved gay for you stories, so the fact that this turns into a bi for you story made it that much better. David was this breath of fresh air for these two, open and sexually fluid he’d already had one night he couldn’t forget with Leigh and meeting Hudson stirred up all kinds of feelings in him including protective ones when he realizes that Hudson is recovering from some sort of physically violent attack. While he has his own demons to deal with, there was no denying that David was the glue that bonded these three together and often the voice of reason when things got out of whack.
It was quite beautiful to watch these three go from roommates, to friends, to lovers and more. With three partners there is always a learning curve, but I felt they communicated well and gave so much to one another emotionally and physically that they made each other stronger and better. A couple of times before they worked everything out completely, the green eyed monster reared its head, but these three were mature enough to handle those feelings and not let them get in their way to finding a happiness that worked for them all.
While there were a few times I got frustrated with the actions of one or more of these characters, I still felt this book deserved 5 stars. The complexity of the characters, their situation, the way they resolved their differences and the absolute love between them made Intertwined Hearts everything I look for in a romance.
Review copy provided for a voluntary review.
Let's just say they all benefit from their unconventional arrangement. Leigh's so used to being alone, she doesn't realize how lonely she is. Hudson needs something to give his life purpose again after his attack. David needs to find balance after what happened with his partner. Of the three, David's the most open to exploring what's between the three of them. He's the one who presents it as a viable option and the one who gently pushes them into considering it.
MAN, it's a good thing he did. Because each of them needs the others. Pregnancy and the emotional aftermath of an attack and general burnout throw each of them for a loop. Their sexy times and deepening relationship are a textbook example of the benefits of sexual healing. (I'm being flip, but the three really do start to figure things out as they learn to lean on one another as they relationship progresses.)
We were given some sweet setup for the next book (Law!) and a whole lot of steam between our three leads. *thumbs up*
-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal
Each member went through so much in their own right and each learned that together they could heal and love and be loved.
The story touches on many subjects and can turn readers away from the story or turn them into a lover of the story. Thoughts on surrogacy, mental health, counseling, gay marriage, gay parenting, free thinking, multipartners, bigotry, homophobia, changing someone’s sexuality, and open mindedness are all touched on in some shape or form. If you have strong points of view on these topics be aware. My feelings didn’t always match, but the story to me over came that and I could love it.
Great touching read but again you have to know what you are getting into before you read.
