I love a good menage book (especially a shifter menage book) with 2 or more men loving, adoring, cherishing, showering 1 woman with attention and HOT sex. There are only a few authors that are able to write a menage that includes a great story along with HOT sex. R.E. Butler is definitely one of those authors. This is the second menage that I read from R.E. and it's one of my favorites. With each book I read from her I find myself becoming more and more of a fan and that's saying something because after reading The Wolf's Mates series, I was already a pretty big fan!! Loved Jason's (especially after I just found out that R.E. patterned Jason's character from Jax on Sons of Anarchy *sigh*) and Linus's books in that series.
I have to say that after reading Every Night Forever, this is now my favorite of all of her books. Wow...just absolutely loved it. I actually went back and reread when I was finished because I didn't want the story to end. I am definitely under the spell of Dante, Cairo, and Mason. *sigh*
Dante, Cairo, and Mason were introduced in Michael & Shyne's book and I instantly loved them, even though they didn't behave themselves and caused a ton of trouble for Michael & Shyne. I was so happy to read that R.E. was giving them their own book and a chance to redeem themselves and find their HEA.
Such a great story. Mason was sweet and sentimental, Dante was more serious and thoughtful being the older brother, and Cairo was a mixture of the two. And they were all HOT, muscled, sexy, charming, and loving. Alyssa was one lucky character!! She was a perfect mate for them. I loved how they all interacted with Alyssa and I loved how she was with them in return. One of my favorite parts is with the rings~theirs being tattooed and the meaning behind them and then the rings that they each gave Alyssa. She was "their butterfly, their 4th, and their heart." So sweet.
There was no shortage of HOT sex in fours and as a couple (strictly m/f/m/m or m/f ~ no m/m or m/m/m) against the wall, in the shower, on a desk, on a couch, under a tree and finally in a bed. lol ;)
Can't wait for the next book in this series and I love how R.E. introduced those characters in this book. Sounds like it will be another good one. Great start to a new series and again probably my favorite book by R.E. so far. Definitely a keeper to be reread. I also wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book. Another great cover!!
BEST OF THE BEST rating.
