My Top 3 M/M Menage Books... According to me of course

I was always in search of my top 3 Menage books. Because 3 is SO appropriate for that! I only ever had one for the longest time. More by Sloan Parker. Then back to back this last month the other 2 revealed themselves with a crash and a bang! Broken Pieces by Riley Hart and The Foster Family by Jamie Samms.

Some people can't wrap their heads around Menage. I've heard... "It's too confusing." Or. "I don't believe you can love more than one person." And "Books like that are for selfish lovers." But the one I agree with is, "I've yet to read one that is good." I have scoured the shelves I tell you! SCOURED! A great menage is hard to find!

Why do I like Menage? The pure psychology of it intrigues me, that's what fuels my mind. What fuels my heart is this. Imagine a world where 2 people love you so much. 2 people!!! They would take you to the greatest of heights and cuddle on the ground with you in your darkest moments. I imagine if one of the trio ceased to be, it would be as if an arm was missing. But, imagine someone knowing EXACTLY how you're feeling because they lost the same exact person the same way. TRIFECTA PERFECTA! That's what I say! For me, it's beautiful.

NOW! These 3 books did everything for me. Don't be perverts people! Each of these books are different. It isn't like reading the same story three times. "You've read one you've read them all," said the most bland person ever! Seriously, that's bull crap! These books are the best of the best in my honest opinion. Of course I am always on the look out for great menage, but it took a hell of a long time to get these three on my Top 3!

So let's talk about them...

For fifteen years Luke Moore has lived by three rules: stay off his father's radar, never spend more than a single night with any man, and never fall in love again. But one night of explosive sex and two men whom he can't get out of his head have Luke breaking them all. Richard and Matthew push him past all his boundaries--both sexually and personally--and now he's no longer hiding from his senator father; he's taking him on. And he isn't just falling for one man; he's falling for two. If you're going to break the rules, might as well break them big.
But Luke's father has his reasons for hating how his son lives, and he'll do whatever he can and use all his power to keep Luke away from Richard and Matthew.
Can this threesome find a way to make their unconventional relationship last with the world around them trying to pull them apart? And will Luke be able to keep breaking his rules for Richard and Matthew, or will he head back to his familiar way of life just when his new lovers want to bind him tighter?
Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Male/male sexual practices, menage (m/m/m).

Yes, there is sex... A lot of sex, BUT! <<< See the but? The chemistry, love, hunger, raw and powerful connection these three have, is consuming. The growth from casual to monogamous is like a field day for the mind. There is suspense, and passion. You are flying in all the right places and you can't help but dissect every nuance. Each character (Luke, Richard and Matthew) bring SO MUCH to the table and Sloan Parker truly nails the physical and psychological with the characters and story. GREAT GREAT GREAT ( gotta do it in threes)

 Growing up in foster care has left Kerry Grey with little self-esteem or hope for his future. A college dropout, Kerry scrapes by on a part-time job at a garden nursery. His friendship with his boss and working with the plants are the only high points in Kerry’s life. He’s been dating the man who bullied him at school, but when his boyfriend abandons him at a party, Kerry wanders down the beach to drown his sorrows in a bottle of scotch.

Malcolm Holmes and Charlie Stone have been together for fifteen years. Despite Charlie's willingness to accept Malcolm's unspoken domination in bed,something is missing from their relationship. Early one morning, they rescue a passed out Kerry from being washed away by the tide and Charlie immediately senses a kindred spirit in the lost younger man. When Kerry’s roommate kicks him out, Malcolm and Charlie invite him into their home. As Charlie and Kerry bond over Charlie’s garden, Malcolm sees Kerry may be just who they have been looking for to complete their lives. All they have to do is show Kerry, and each other, that Kerry's submissive tendencies will fit their dynamic.

But someone is sabotaging Kerry at every turn. As he struggles to discover the culprit, he fears for the safety of his new friends. If Malcolm and Charlie cannot help, their lifelong search for their perfect third may not end with the happily ever after they imagined.

ser·en·dip·i·ty: : luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for

When Kerry meets Malcolm and Charlie for the first time you don't realize it right away but when it hits you, you can't help whisper, serendipity!

I didn't really know what to expect with this book because I had been reading one menage after another with so so feelings. This book just sideswiped me with emotion and intrigue. I couldn't place where I wanted anything to go. It was very realistic and yet almost obscure. Kerry you can't help but love. He is thrown into a life where 2 people have been together for so long and they have a complex past. Malcolm is just UNF! I saw him as a dark character in search of the light and Charlie his partner wishing he could give it to him. There are fractures all over the place with these three and you just find yourself a slave to Jamie Samms brilliance. You'll see what I mean. If you read it you know what I mean, if you haven't, you must!


Can three broken pieces make a whole?

Josiah Evans is the orphan who lost both his parents. He’s sweet, shy, and all heart. He wants nothing more than to be loved.

Mateo Sanchez is the son of a gang leader. He’s seen it all, and never hesitates to do what needs to be done, no matter what it is.

Tristan Croft is the wealthy attorney who clawed his way up from the bottom to rule his own world. He’ll never depend on anyone but himself again.

Three men who couldn’t be more different…and yet, as their lives intersect they find an uncommon balance that calms the storms inside each of them, and ignites fires hotter than they ever thought imaginable.

Told uniquely in three parts and spanning over ten years, BROKEN PIECES is a journey of healing for three fragmented souls, finding love in the unlikeliest of places—with each other.

I have to start out by saying A SEQUEL IS COMING! This book gave me withdrawals and I had a hangover and a friend of mine read it right after me and my phone blew up with texts! We were at a loss AND IT WAS AWESOME! Riley Hart just went above and beyond with this. Can three broken pieces make a whole? You aren't going to ever know that answer unless you read this book and stick with it. You will cry and your body will buzz with the need for more. You will close this book with eyes wide and jaws dropped. You will cry because it's over and smile because more is coming. These characters *sigh* Josiah, SO Strong! Mateo, SO brave, Tristen, SO shattered! Past and present collide fabulously in this book and OH BOY GET THE WINE! 

So! If you are a menage fan (or even if you aren't) these three books really just do it right! I welcome AMY suggestions if you have a menage out there. I am sure I likely read it already, but please speak up now! 

 Get buying people!
