Lee Parker loved once and had his heart broken. He’s drawn to Harper because of her humor and sexy curves, but can he give away his heart again? And can he share her with his co-worker and best friend? Mason Sinclair is devoted to his work and has always shied away from falling in love. But all that changes when he meets Harper. He has no problem sharing her with Lee, or with the way his heart flutters whenever she’s around.
But when Harper’s ex-boyfriend breaks into Mason’s house one night during a storm, Harper is alone, and her ex is out for revenge. Can Mason and Lee reach her in time?
Wow! I rarely give a book five stars, but I read this book all the way through and when I was done, went right back to the beginning and started again. With the right mixture of humor and heat, it takes off fast and never loses momentum. If that doesn't deserve a five star rating, I don't know what does.
Harper is starting over. She moved to Racy, Indiana, firmly set on moving forward - new town, new job, new life. Her first day at her new job she meets Mason and Lee, who immediately turn her world upside down. Not long after, a threat from her past makes its way into her present and she becomes conflicted. She doesn't want the new men in her life to be involved. However, they have a different idea and will not be deterred. Having lived in Racy all their lives, Mason and Lee know everyone and start pulling people together to help. And when trouble comes in to their private little community, they need all the help they can get.
The relationship between Harper, Lee and Mason is easy and comfortable. They quickly develop a serious relationship of mutual respect and affection. The sex between the three of them is blistering hot! The bad guy is just the right amount of disturbed. The story grips you and holds your attention all the way through. It flows nicely from start to finish.
I had two extremely minor issues with the story. First, how can there possibly be ten triad couples already existing in a town as small as this? That just doesn't seem very realistic or even remotely possible. Second, when Lee and Mason are telling Harper about the other triads over dinner, it is impossible to keep track of that many people. That's 30 names dropped with a few extras added in to clarify how they all fit together, what families they belong to, etc. I'm sure they are each explained in their own books since this is #11 in the series, but it's very difficult to read through that conversation. Then when Harper meets some of the other women, I found I couldn't easily distinguish which woman was linked to which pair of men without going back and re-reading that conversation. Like I stated earlier, these are minor issues, especially considering the book stands alone but I think it's important for the reader to know so there's no pressure to remember all the names. You can always go back and read the rest of the series, as I intend to do.
