About the Author
I also found this book realistic and likable because of its very real depiction of the bigotry Wilson suffers from the people in his town when he is outed. I have read several male/male erotic romance books set in small southern towns and they romanticize these small towns and the people. The people are all accepting and loving of the men who are gay, when in reality, this just isn't the case in the real world.
Finally, I loved that the author mixed a solid plot and strong characterization with great sex between the three men. There was both animalistic "I just can't keep my hands off you" sex and the tender love making that showed that the men were falling in love with each other. With this book and N.R Walker's Taxes and Tardis, she has become one of my favorite M/M erotic romance writers. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Very well written. HOT sex scenes, funny banter, and plenty of emotion (good and bad).

Ms. Walker wrote of acceptance and trust as she delivered three different personalities. Adam, the fun-loving man-child tugged at my heart making me ache for him one minute while laughing along with his antics the next. Simon’s quiet resolve and nurturing personality lent himself to caregiver of his lovers. And Wil became a happy mixture of the previous two; finding his way as an openly gay man in a polyamorous relationship.
Together the trio became a choreographed dance, fluidly moving in the same direction holding each other high and above all others.
Kudos to N.R. Walker for delivering humor in the face of realism and love where there could have been despair.

A five handcuff review
We start off with Wilson (Wil) Curtis. He is on a two week vacation that was supposed to be spent with his boyfriend. Things didn't go so well. He was outed in his hometown and his boyfriend broke up with him that night. The ex didn't want to be out and didn't even speak up for Wil.
Wil went on vacation any way. He met Adam and Simon. Simon and Adam were already a couple, very much in live with each other. They worked at the hotel where he was staying. After a few days of getting to know them they ended up for what was going to be a one night 3-way deal. It turned out to be so much more than that.
They spent the next week together every day. Then one night Simon changed. After exchanged looks Simon decided to go back to his place. He and Adam had not been there since that first night with Wil. Simon became moody and it upset Adam and Wil. Neither of them could figure out why Simon closed himself off from them.
Finally Wil, Simon and Adam work things out. They discovered that they each were falling in love with another. Simon didn't think that was possible. He thought Adam would leave him.
While all of this was going on, Simon was under stress from the hotel being sold to a homophobe named Harltley. Hartley was buying up property all over town that gay people hung out or owned.
Simon and Adam wanted Wil to stay and not return to Alabama. Nothing was gay-friendly in his hometown. His business has slacked off when the town found out he was gay. They didn't want to eat in his restaurant and catch "gay". Through much thought Wil decided to give them a shot.
I won't go into the ending because you need to read it and see what happens!
This book is a must read!! Looking forward to my next book by N. R. Walker!

I've read a fair few books by N. R. Walker so I was pretty confident that I'd enjoy the writing style but I was pleasantly surprised by how well the three-way relationship worked in this. I'm not usually one for books centred around threesomes, they're always steamy enough but lack a little on the romance side for me but Three’s Company had the perfect balance of love and sex.
Simon, Adam and Wil were great and so easy to like, even from the start. I loved the contrast in their personalities, with Simon so serious and Adam so carefree, Wil seemed to be their perfect third with his easygoing nature. It really felt like the three worked better together than they ever would as a traditional pairing. I had been a little worried going into this that with Adam and Simon already being in an established relationship, somehow the connection with Wil wouldn't feel the same. My favourite part of romance books is the characters falling for each other and I was worried that not getting to experience that between Adam and Simon would ruin the story for me a little. Thankfully, it didn't. Instead I got to experience Adam and Simon fall in love with Wil and he with them, it was written so well that I almost forgot that there had been an established relationship at all.
The storyline itself is pretty low key, there's some emotional drama to contend with – the usual reservations and fears that you'd expect when three people venture into a relationship together – and a small sub-plot that deals with some homophobia issues, but nothing too angsty and it was all resolved before the end.
I didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. Would definitely recommend to M/M/M fans or to those wanting to test the waters in reading a ménage book.
My interest was maintained and I wasn't bored, and very much liked all three central characters...and this would be why it had the stars it did.
Unfortunately I got very frustrated with too much narration and not enough dialogue. There were many moments when I was wanting to hear from these guys and experience the scenes. But this didn't happen, instead all I got was a narrated overview, telling me what was said and how it happened. The moment Will expressed his love should have been a moment to savour but was narrated an rushed...and so were many aspects of this book, such as some of intimate bedroom moments, Wills trip back to his home town, and the whole general progression of the relationship.
Very hot sex scenes were rushed and not enough time was spent on descriptions and setting the scene. I didn't even realize Dee was not white until near the end of the book when the author suddenly begins to describe her appearance. I don't mind what someone looks like but a heads up would be good.
Then there's the skipping time that's my pet hate and the last chapter jumps six months and then the epilogue five years. I'm not a fan, especially when their whole journey felt skimmed over and rushed.
So it was just an 'ok' read for me, I'm afraid.
Of course there is a sub-plot in the background (homophobic developer buying up all sorts of property just to stop them being used by gay men), and I felt that that part of the story was a little bit obvious - said dastardly villain decides he wants to buy the hotel where our boys are. The hotel's owners decide that they would like to think about selling the hotel to said homophobic developer, which would of course mean that our boys would be out of a job and home. Simon brings his father into the equation (he of course happens to be a millionaire businessman) and they all hatch a plot to buy the hotel themselves, and ruin the developer's plans. This does of course work thank goodness. The best part for me was Rod turning up completely out of the blue six months down the line at the end of the book and seriously expecting Wil to return to Alabama with him and a life back in the closet. Of course, as Simon, Adam and Wil were on their way out to the local Pride rally at the time, this was an extremely silly thing to do, and needless to say he stood there looking like someone who'd stepped in something extremely unpleasant while they all ignored him. Great scene. I'd love there to be a follow-up book letting us know how they're all getting on, pretty please Mrs Author!
Finding the hotel full of gorgeous sexy men, Wil is oblivious to his charm and is hit on often, but as Adam, the bar man, points out, he just cant see it! But Adam has his eyes on Wil, as does Simon, Adam's partner. and they enter into a menage, But when one of the three begins to feel maybe something he shouldn't, it all goes downhill. Can it be rescued?? will true love, even if it is 3 way, conquer all??
really, really liked this!! its so well written! super hot scenes between all three men ( no M/M, just all three) but emotionally well written too. Wil struggles with the openess of Florida, and its fab to see him come out of his shell, and engage himself with this relationship. when Wil's times is nearly done, is when it gets interesting and loved how he seemlessly fitted into Adam and Simon's life. a decent enough story behind it, too, with the hotel being threatened with a developer with plans to get rid of it and its clientele, and helps comes from a surprising source.
written from Wil's point of view, it would have been nice to hear from Adam and Simon as well, especially at the points where Adam and Simon have their moments.
this is the first ive read of this author, but will look out for more.
