Normally, finding the hot neighbor in bed with your boyfriend would be the end—not the beginning—of a wonderful relationship.

Marty can’t catch a break. Unable to confess to his neighbor Kevin that it’s Kevin he’s interested in, he ends up using advice to make a move on Jason instead. He moves too slowly, though, and Kevin and Jason end up dating each other, leaving Marty out in the cold.

Everything changes the morning Jason wakes up to find Marty in bed with him and Kevin. Jason wonders whether he’s made a big mistake in committing to Kevin. Marty’s mortified—he’s wanted Jason from afar for ages, but never had the courage to act on it. And Kevin is plotting something naughty that will give all three men what they’ve wanted all along.

When Marty is dumped – again – by a fly-by-lover for being dull and clueless, he decides to really start thinking about his life. He’d never been good at making or keeping friends, and so Marty decides it’s high time he learned how to build proper, lasting relationships. Only problem is, Marty discovers that’s not something that can be learned from a book. So he decides to enlist the help of his neighbor, Kevin. Can they work something out between them?

I found this to be a really lighthearted, fun read that kept me giggling off and on throughout the story. I thought both Marty and Kevin were really sweet guys and watching them interact together – especially right at the start – was just glorious fun. There was an innocence to Marty that had me instantly liking him. While sexually and emotionally competent, Marty came across to me as not just super shy, but so unused to communicating and being more than superficially friendly that I found his attempts at being friends and connecting with Kevin really sweet and fun. And while I found Kevin far more socially adept, his eagerness and willingness to help and befriend Marty lent the story an overall positive vibe and left me thinking of the book as one of those “feel good”, pick-me-up types of reads.

Making this lovely, sweet romance even more fun – Kevin urges Marty to test out his new-found social skills on a guy he’s interested in. While Marty is interested in Kevin, he doesn’t want to lose this new, important friendship, so Marty also becomes friends with Jason. Then when Jason and Kevin meet and become friends, this starts to almost feel like some Shakespearian comedy to me. While the entire tone of the story is light, friendly and flirty, there is so much lust and attraction and friendly laughter floating around I had to chuckle with all the antics going on. I really enjoyed this – finding it almost a comedy of errors and just so much fun to read.

Readers looking for a fun, happy M/M/M Ménage story this is perfect. I loved it and have already started searching out other stories by the author. With some hot – but not too kinky – sex and plenty of parts that had me giggling madly, this is a lovely story that I will happily read again and again. Recommended.
