First, I had to put ice on my face as the hot flashes from the sex scenes were outstanding!!! The story is wonderfully sensual, humorous and touching. I love the Bad Boys Trey and Zane...living life to the fullest in every aspect...then Rebecca coming into their life and bringing it all to a fullness that fairly sizzles on each page....enjoyed it very much and highly recommend to those who enjoy hot sex with their romance.

This book has a lot of sexy scenes. I really love some of the angst on the part of the male characters over the relationship. I thought the relationship was a little rushed between the characters. Overall, not a bad read.

Trey and Zane are self made billionaires. They have been friends, partners, and behind closed doors they have been lovers since high school. Each having come from an abusive home, they don't allow anyone into their inner circle.
Rebecca has been raising her twin brothers since her mother died and her father left them when she was sixteen and they were seven. Not wanting the boys to be taken from her she sacrificed her life to make sure they had what they needed to survive.
After a brief encounter 10 years ago Trey still can't forget the woman he believes is his soul mate, now all he has to do is convince Zane and Rebecca that they three of them belong together. Simple, right?
This was not an easy trio to bring together. They all had baggage and two of the three had their hearts so far behind walls to protect themselves I was pretty sure it was going to take lots and lots of C-4 to bring those walls down.
Once again Ms. Holly has created a steamy, erotic and beautiful love story. She is the master at creating menage relationships that are believable. When I read her books I am so lost in the emotions that I never question if it could actually work. The sex scenes are erotic and hot, and while frequent I never feel they are gratuitous.
The mystery that happens in the story was well written and there were really several people that could have been the culprit. I would have liked to have seen both Rebecca and Zane have closure with their fathers, both of those story lines felt unfinished to me. The only other problem I had is that Harvard doesn't give Athletic scholarships so there is no way that Zane could have attended that way.
If you are looking for a well written erotic menage story with likable, believable characters then TBBBC should be on your list. Emma Holly is an auto-buy for me and I think after one book she will be for you as well.

Definitely a rec for the fans of Ms Holly, especially those who like her threesome works. She never disappoints when it comes to developping the characters' relationships aside from the actual steamy scenes, and that is what sells her books for me every time.

How I got this book: From the author
Successful businessmen Zane and Trey have been a club of two since they were eighteen. They’ve done everything together: play football, fall in love, even get smacked around by their dads. The only thing they haven’t tried is seducing the same woman. Executive chef Rebecca learned early not to count on anyone. She raised her younger brothers by herself—with no adult being the wiser. Her knack for professional cooking kept the boys housed and fed. Now she’s damned if it won’t pay their way through Harvard as well. Add in running Trey’s new restaurant, and her plate is too full for romance. That’s an attitude the bad boys intend to change. Zane and Trey have set their sights on the sexy chef, a female too tantalizing to be all work and no play. When their hearts enter the equation, and when they realize they’re both pursuing her, the committed twosome faces their hardest test of all . . .
This blurb came from the author’s website here.
I have been a fan of Holly’s for several years. She was my introduction to contemporary erotica and erotic romance and I have enjoyed reading her ever since. As a result, I eagerly accepted the review request and I am glad that I did. Holly provided a very intense m/m/f that actually dealt with some of the emotional issues I could imagine popping up that include jealousy, uncertainty about being loved, and the importance of privacy. Holly handled all of those with her usual deft ability drawing me into her characters and their struggles and providing a satisfying ending without cheapening what the characters have gone through.
Zane and Trey, next-door neighbors, don’t have the happiest of lives when the book opens. They both grew up with only their abusive fathers providing the initial thread that tied them together. The second thread was their individual bisexuality and the third thread was their mutual attraction and compatibility. From there they developed a strong friendship that included attending the same prestigious university and continuing their relationship. Both Zane and Trey enjoyed sexual encounters with women but they never developed a relationship with them and they never involved another man. As Zane and Trey approached college graduation over lunch one day they decided to go into business together as full partners in a venture called the Bad Boys Club that was going to start with a magazine and expand from there. Ten years later the Bad Boys Club had grown into a billion dollar enterprise.
Rebecca also grew up with a troubled home life. After her mother died when she was a teenager, her father walked out and told Rebecca to call the state so they could take her two younger brothers. Instead of doing that, she worked to keep her brothers so they could be a family without outside interference. One of the skills she learned she had one morning was the ability to create really good food, so she became a chef. She was working as a lunchtime waitress when she encountered Zane and Trey as they decided to start the Bad Boys Club. Both men were attracted to her but nothing went further than a very nice tip at the end of the meal. Ten years later Rebecca has quit her job and decided to apply as the head chef for Trey’s new restaurant.
I really enjoyed that Zane and Trey had a complete relationship together without Rebecca. Unlike other ménages that can give the impression that the couple isn’t complete without a third person they just haven’t met yet, Holly did not fall into that trap. Rebecca happened to be the perfect woman for both men but they did not need her to be complete. They had to decide to open their relationship, which meant they had to deal with being human. Zane and Trey had to learn how to be comfortable sexually with each other in Rebecca’s presence. Rebecca also had to learn that she wasn’t displacing or coming in between what the two men already had. They were not able to solve their issues overnight but had to actually work on it over time. To me, the gradual build-up of the emotional side of their relationship added credibility to their ménage.
Rebecca, Zane and Trey also had to deal with having their painful pasts brought up into the very public eye along with their current relationship. While I felt for the three of them and how their privacy was both invaded and violated, I absolutely loved how they got theirs back. It took a concerted effort from all three, plus Rebecca’s brothers and their friends. Those events also had the effect of solidifying their relationship and commitment to each other, which really made my heart melt.
I would be doing a disservice to this review if I did not mention the sexual side of the relationship. While I was not exactly happy with the timing and location of Rebecca’s first sexual encounter with Trey I do like how it was handled afterward. I also agreed with Rebecca’s logic about continuing anything with Trey. I was glad to see that Zane also had his chance with Rebecca so when they initiated their first threesome everyone was on the same level. Holly always does a good job with her descriptions not just of the actions but the emotions involved and conveyed. Even in their sexual encounters Holly ensured that the level of comfort and trust in their emotional relationship was also depicted before, during and after the physical actions. I think the best part of the sexual side is that Holly did not leave out m/m loving because Trey and Zane had a committed relationship before Rebecca. To have ended those encounters would have completely lost my buy-in for their relationship and the chance for a HEA.
As I said in my status update when I finished reading The Billionaire Bad Boys Club, Holly has done it again. She provided me with a very satisfying complete story that had damaged protagonists healing themselves over time. They dealt with their past and looked forward to their future. They also exhibited very human emotional concerns throughout their relationship that provided a solid ground to keep me invested. Holly continues to be one of my auto-buy authors.
I give The Billionaire Bad Boys Club an A

They each find the missing peace to their perfect lives in the hands of one woman,Rebecca.

Bringing them up her self in secret, she built a life that consisted of her work and brothers. Trey and Zane each found a way of loving her that she was helpless to resist for long. Will the ghosts of their past prevent this trio from the love they can share or will it bring them closer?

One plus one equals a couple but after all these years will adding another complete them or tear them apart?
This was another great book by Emma Holly. Definitely recommend this book. It is a great story with sex scenes not sex with some plot. All three characters must overcome their childhoods.
You have to read this book if only to read how the heroes stop the villain. I loved it!
