The heroine was Black and fat, whilst her love interests were a brown latinx queer man and a black queer man. It was a purely polyamorous relationship, one everyone benefited from, as there wasn’t a selfish person in the relationship.
The loving was different than books I read, as there was dp action, and it wasn’t without pain, which a lot of writers get wrong with back door action.
I think it was very sex positive and fat positive, especially giving a black fat woman agency to own her sexuality as well as show she had options, something the world constantly tries to convince black fat women don’t have.
She also detailed her experiences working at a university and the macro/microaggressions she experienced, which I could really relate to.
It was lovely to read a book where men of color weren’t being painted as a villain next to a white boy. So much IR is about glorifying white guys as if they’re not responsible for our oppression. As I’m getting older, I’m appreciating more men of color, especially brothas in romance even though I’ll probably always read ir. I’m just getting tired of ir automatically meaning white.
While the internal story wasn’t about conflict(I’m not a big fluff reader, I like story just as much as romance)I still enjoyed it based on all the positives.
I’d definitely suggest this to more readers!
There is some drama outside of the throuple that kinda threatens their relationship in a way, but everything is resolved nicely and overall a very sweet and fun story. And Whoo-eee is there heat between all three of them!! The food Mary makes sounds so good, and I like the way it is incorporated into their flirting and stuff.
Definitely a recommend for anyone looking for a triad romance that throws love triangles for a loop.
What I did remember about the recommendations I'd heard for this book was that the editing isn't quite up to snuff, even if the story is a good one. And honestly, that's exactly what I'd say too. The editing isn't horrible, but I noticed a couple hiccups, but they were quite easy to overlook for the experience of the story.
Yes, it's all a little too instant and easy, Mary undergoes some sort of magic personality transformation when she moved to Seaport apparently, and somehow two bi-sexual men (attracted to one another) are supposed to have miraculously never quite noticed in their 20 years of acquaintance. So, maybe not super realistic, but sexy and ultra sweet (without be saccharine), which I'll take.
The only draw back was how Knox's backstory and sexual identity was written. It felt like a plot point that could have been fleshed out more. It read as disjointed. Other than that Katrina writes polyamorous relationships really well. The city council confrontation was such a smart way to infuse the tension that typically happens in all romances.
