Review by Azalea

Since leaving home and heartbreak behind eight years before, Shelby Daniels has been very careful to keep her involvement with men about just one thing: sex. No dates, no meaningful discussions, no plans for the future. So far, it’s been a pretty satisfying system, as long as she cuts the men loose once they show signs of wanting to take their “relationship” to the next level.

Then the sudden death of her uncle forces her to return to the small mountain community where she grew up and face the reason she left it behind. Two reasons, actually: darkly, devilishly seductive Gabriel MacKenzie and gorgeous, fun-loving Justin Walters, whose kisses could send any woman to heaven. Young, confused and afraid of being forced to choose between Gabe and Justin, Shelby did the only thing she could to stop their torrid tug-of-war from tearing them apart. She ran away to culinary school and never came back.

Now, a shared inheritance means that best friends Gabe and Justin will finally get the chance to prove to Shelby that she doesn’t have to choose — and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to show her there really is love in Three For All.

Given her choice between two hunky lovers from her past, Shelby Daniels is conflicted. Which one should she choose…or should she choose both…or neither?

Shelby is a sexually liberated 21st century woman who is not looking for any type of relationship commitment. She’s quite happy to have her sex without strings. Paul, her latest paramour, however, decides he wants more from Shelby, wanting to pursue a social relationship outside of the bedroom.
Not wanting to hurt Paul but not wanting to take their affair to the next level, she explains her feelings, kisses him on the cheek and walks out of his life, even though she did feel like a ‘puppy kicker’ for turning her back on what could be a nice, solid relationship.

Arriving at her apartment she finds the light on her answering machine blinking with a message that just might change her whole life and bring her back face to face with two former lovers, Justin and Gabe. This story started out hot with a steamy sex scene between Shelby and Paul but the passion and sex are amped up when Shelby arrives back home after several years absence. Shelby finds herself being manipulated, albeit kindly, by her recently deceased uncle who has willed his home to Shelby and Justin and Gabe. His letter to Shelby explains what he wants for the three of them and it’s up to them to decide if they want to carry out Uncle Mike’s dying wishes.

The story sounds like an implausible situation at first blush but the author deftly draws you into the story and has you panting and rooting for both men. Sex with either man is great but sex with both of them together…is hot!

I liked all three of the main characters and found Justin and Gabe appealing. The sex scenes are hot and the anal sex is not too over the top to offend. The story moves along and I found myself very interested in all three and the outcome of the story. It was a bit predictable but that did not detract from the story.
