Three wishes.

Seb wants to be happy.

Matt wants to find ‘the one.’

Connor wants them.

Two drunken kisses.

Seb didn’t plan to kiss Matt and Connor, but he doesn’t regret it, even if it has changed their friendship forever.

Matt has never considered dating a man before, let alone two. Despite his confusion, being with Seb and Connor feels right.

One uncertain future.

Connor’s potential fate has stopped him living and loving. Can he face his fears to be with the men he loves?


Matt adjusted his jogging bottoms and leaned back against the sofa. The next words popped out of his mouth unfiltered. "I could do with a blow job."

Seb snorted out a loud laugh. "Too much information." He patted Matt's shoulder. "But hey, if you're desperate, I don't mind obliging." Seb's laughter trailed off into a nervous chuckle. "Umm… that was a joke."

“Yeah, yeah, of course." Matt couldn't look at Seb. A week ago, he'd have taken a comment like that and ribbed his friend with it mercilessly. Now, he wasn't sure at all that it had been meant in jest. He wasn't even sure that he wanted it to be a joke. He rubbed his jaw, clearing his throat again. "What would you do if I said yes?”

Seb twisted on the sofa so he was facing Matt. "You're not going to say yes."

"What if I did?" Matt kept his stare on the ceiling, but he was still able to see Seb shrug out of the corner of his eye.

“I'd give you one.”

Seb's reply was so matter-of-fact that it sent a chill running up Matt's spine. It did nothing to ease the pressure in his cock. If anything, blood pumped to it faster.

"Really?" Matt asked. Why the hell was he still talking? It was like he was engaged in a game of chicken with Seb, trying to see which one of them would back down first. He had no idea how far his head, or his cock, was willing to take it.

“Sure, why not? It's just a blow job, right? It wouldn't mean anything.”

"But we're friends," Matt stuttered.

"Wouldn't be the first time I've sucked off a friend."

3.5 Stars

This book was a cute MMM book with not a whole lot of angst to it. Just three best friends trying to navigate their feelings for each other and work them into a relationship with all three people. The characters were cute; Seb was my favorite.

They all have their issues and some baggage. We get to experience all kinds of emotions and some snarky banter between the characters but overall the story stays on the sweeter side. And we also get to see a different point of view from all three men, and I appreciated that about this book, because with more than just two characters, they all really need to stand out.

And, OK, I normally I really love MMM books, and this one was written well, but there were a few things that for me specifically didn't seem to mesh out well and work for me in the plot lines. The pacing is a little on the slow side; I definitely think that the storyline could have moved along a little faster or that some added drama might have made it not seem so slow.

Part of the time the characters didn't seem to have an equal three-way relationship. I mean, it all starts with some kissing while they're drunk. Which is totally fine. But there's some things that for me didn't seem like they were all on equal footing. I mean why are Matt and Connor keeping stuff from Seb? And, Connor wants both men, but is super hesitant and slow about making things happen for the three of them. Matt is all in when it comes to being with guys, but still isn’t down to try everything. I mean that's OK, everyone has different likes/dislikes but I thought closer to the end that because he was all in for the relationship he would be "all in" if that makes sense?!? (which it totally might not).

I did think that some of the twists in the book made this story more believable and were totally what saved me from not liking it at all. I really wanted to LOVE this one, but in the end I just thought it was OK for a first read by this author. I am curious to see what else Colette Davidson has written, and I will probably check out a MM pairing from this author in the future to see how that goes.
