An INKED Novel
Release Date: 03.11.19
Two men with a rocky history, and one with an all-consuming love for both of them.
Sometimes I’m so lonely I swear I can’t breathe. I bring men and women into my bed to chase away the ache, but it never seems to help. I want something real, something lasting, but I’ve never been more afraid of anything in my life. If I have nothing else in my life I can count on, at least I have my best friend, Cas. If I have nothing else in my life that feels solid, at least I have Cas.
Until one sad smile from a beautiful man tilts my world on its axis.
But Finn is Cas’ ex, and that means he’s off limits, right? What if I could have something permanent, if I’m willing to put my heart on the line? Finn and Cas may have a history, but something tells me the three of us could have a future, if we’re willing to let things get a little complicated.
Review by: Jennifer
Beau and Cas are roommates with benefits, Cas wants more from their relationship, but he would rather have some of Beau than none at all. When Cas has to go away for 4 weeks, Beau dying from the loneliness, brings home Finn and the two end up hitting it off and have great chemistry. Always upfront about what he is doing Beau tells Cas all about it, and while Cas does have a bit of jealousy, he for the most part is ok with it. It's not until he comes home and sees just who Finn really is, that he has an issue. Finn is Cas' first love that left and never came back, for Cas that pain is still there and he isn't sure if he can forgive Finn for what he did. But when Finn's past comes back for revenge, Cas feels the need to protect him. Throwing Finn into their mix just feels natural and meant to be, but can they overcome the hurdles that pop up?
So it took me a minute to figure out just who everyone was and how they fit into that world that K.M. Neuhold created. All three men were broken and coming together to make a whole, made for a pretty good story. Drama, danger, violence, and some nice naughty bits, I give this 4 stars.
I swear I could nearly cry as we slip under the covers, and he plasters himself against me without waiting for approval. And then he presses his nose against my throat and drapes a leg over mine, and tears do start to prickle at my eyes. You can’t cry over a little bit of post-sex cuddling, you can’t, I chant in my mind even as I feel one escape and roll down my cheek.
My sniffle alerts Beau to my emotional state, tilting his head back to stare at me with concern.
“Sorry. God, I’m pathetic,” I apologize with a watery laugh, using the arm that isn’t trapped beneath Beau to wipe my cheeks. “It’s been so long; I didn’t realize how much I missed just touching.”
Understanding flashes through his eyes, and he leans forward to kiss away the remaining stray tears, the tenderness of the gesture causing even more to fall. Fuck, this is embarrassing.
“It’s okay,” Beau whispers. “It’s okay. I’m lonely too, but tonight we don’t have to feel so alone.”
Author K.M.Neuhold is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely- and sometimes damaged- men finding their Happily Ever After together. She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series. When she's not writing she's a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero...just kidding, she's likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.
