Bryce has been a firefighter for ten years, but when a horrific house fire leaves him reeling, he moves to a new city, hoping to shove those memories behind him. As he adjusts to his new station, Bryce keeps to himself until Matt and Toby, two hot young men in his unit, throw temptation in his path. Bryce knows better than to mess around with men he works with, especially two newbies who are in the closet. But after a difficult day, Matt and Toby offer him compassion and friendship, which slips so easily into sex Bryce finds the combination irresistible.
Matt and Toby want to expand their relationship to include a third, and they’ve set their sights on their sexy bear of a lieutenant. Their first night together is a scorcher, and, more than that, it feels right, to all of them. But since Bryce refuses to hide who he is, and dating men on his shift is against the rules, all three men are going to have to make some tough choices if they want to stay together.
(This can absolutely be read as a stand-alone book.)
Bryce is a friend of Mason (from books one and two) and a fireman. He meets two new guys on his crew (they are clearly a couple already) and is enthralled.
Matt and Toby subtly begin to flirt with Bryce, and though he thinks this will all end horribly, he can’t say no.
They begin a month long affair and everything seems wonderful when there is an accident that puts Matt in the hospital. Suddenly Bryce feels worried that they are all about to sacrifice their careers and breaks up with the boys.
When push comes to shove, Gray (of all people) gives Bryce some great advice and we get a very happy HFN/HEA.
This was a lot different than books one and two. It has MUCH less BDSM in it, more commanding and less humiliation.
The emotions were very sweet in this book and though there are some hot sex scenes it wasn’t the main focus.
I really enjoyed this and was rooting for this threesome to make it!
All in all 4 of 5 hearts
