I really enjoyed reading about Declan , Noah and Violet.
I wasn't sure how much I could enjoy reading a book about Declan after he called of his wedding to Tori ( Tori is in book #2 in the series Red Red Wine) but it turns out that he was a great hero.
Kisses Sweeter Than Wine is a super sexy book but more than sex it's a story about finding true love and learning how to live the life you want to live and not the life other think you should live and it took Declan many years to put his happiness first and stop listening to his parents.
Declan broke off his engagement the weekend he was to get married. And now, his best friend, Noah, is bringing him back to the same hotel/vineyard he was to get married in. Declan's furious, and hurt that Noah has the nerve to bring him here. But, what he doesn't know is that Noah has a plan to get him to live again, something he hasn't been doing since he broke off his engagement. He's brought Violet to the hotel too, a woman who works in PR and who can help their company market itself, a woman they both know and have feelings for, a woman who happens to be Declan's ex fiancée's best friend. Yikes...
As the weekend unwinds, the three begin to explore the feelings that have always simmered among the them, and pretty soon the moscato the hotel/vineyard offers is lowering their inhibitions and allowing them to bare their souls to each other. They blend seamlessly together, all three of them together. Declan with Noah and Declan and Noah with Violet. But, can they really find a way to make a relationship work when Declan is still caving to his parents' expectations, expectations that do not involve another man in Declan's bed? And can Violet get past her guilt for falling for her best friend's former fiancé and his best friend? Sigh...so much angst! It's the primary reason I couldn't rate this a 5 star that I was tempted to rate it. Declan waffled too much about his stupid conservative, homophobic parents and Violet took too much guilt upon herself for my tastes. I preferred the calm acceptance that Noah exhibited to Declan's broody angst and Violet's martyred guilt.
Aside from those minor quibbles, though, I really liked Kisses Sweeter than Wine. It's sexy and balanced well emotionally. All three characters are realistic, the kind of person we all know, we all are. And that makes the steam between them all the more appealing, because it's based on realism, not fantasy.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book received through NetGalley.
M/M/F ménage romances are a favorite of mine and what I always appreciate about those written by author Jess Dee is the fact that they don’t come easy for the three people involved. In Kisses Sweeter Than Wine the two men have a very volatile past that includes periods of them being together and periods of them apart, one of the men has a failed engagement, and the other at some point realized he alone would never be enough for his lover and a woman who has wanted them both for years but gave up her happiness for that of her friend. This is a complicated, sexy, and emotional story and the characters have some big issues to work through but in doing so they discover that while their relationship might not ever be easy, it is what makes them happy and that is all that matters to them.
I’m just going to say it Noah Martin has some big balls when he takes Declan Muirfield back to the hotel resort where his marriage was suppose to take place six months ago. Declan isn’t happy but Noah knows it is something he needs to confront and Noah plans to make Declan tackle all kinds of issues this weekend especially when their PR representative Violet Harper arrives.
It was hard not to appreciate everything Noah set in to place to get not only what he wanted but what he knows Declan wants and what he suspects Violet wants and when she walks in on he and Declan during an intimate moments his suspicion is confirmed. While physically they are all on the same page, emotionally they have some issues they need to work through and those issues have the potential to tear them apart. I love that a visit from Blake, Lily and Angus from Summer Wine showed them all that the type of relationship they wanted was possible and that Angus helped Declan to see things a little more clearly.
Poignant, thought provoking, and sensual Kisses Sweeter Than Wine is another inspired story in Jess Dee’s Tastes of Seduction series and one I know I will read often.
