Blurb: When Christian first meets Jordan and Ezra, they’re all young and lucky, thrown together in a journalist internship that cements their friendship for life. But when the internship ends, everything falls apart.
Christian has always loved Jordan, though he’s sure he doesn’t have a chance. By Jordan’s wedding, Christian has feelings for Ezra too. Then Ezra leaves on a foreign assignment, and Christian resigns himself to loneliness and concentrates on his job.
But his professional success comes with crushing personal blows. When an accident kills Jordan’s wife, Christian becomes Jordan’s only support. Months spent so close to him take their toll on Christian’s heart. Then Ezra finally comes home and Christian realizes he has to make a choice: give up on both of them and try to move on… or take a chance that’s risky, crazy—and his only shot.
Review: Meet Christian. A gorgeous person, smart and caring and the best friend one could ask for; always there to stand by his friends, without imposing himself and loving them unconditionally. If a bit naïve or as it was well put, by Jordan, “unobserving”. he makes out for being a man you could hug and crush out of fondness.
Meet Jordan. Hot! Tall, broad-shouldered, always joyful, he’s probably the protagonist that suffers most tragedy in our story by losing his wife only one short year after their marriage. He’d be lost without Christian, who comes to save him from drowning in sorrow by moving in with him. Although he loses most of his “happy face” by being thus victimized by fate, Jordan is by far the person they all turn to, to save the day, when odd occurs with his infectious smile.
Meet Ezra. What a snarky SOB. The sexy devil that always spices up the company by just being Ezra. A badass war-covering reporter, Ezra suffers from fate as well when his convoy gets hit and all in his vehicle dies, except him. He’s shipped back and life seems dull and awful, while Christian and Jordan try to get him back on tracks. Although Ezra was gone for five years in the Middle East, their friendship falls back to more than familiar tracks when he returns. The three of them are the best friends and perfect together.
Well… They are perfect together indeed. The story follows the path they take that eventually leads them to see, really see just how perfect they really are together.
I really, really liked this book for numerous reasons. First of all, I love a good triage. Call me kinky and you’d probably be right about it, but there is nothing hotter on my book than that. Going on, Ms. Louise Blaydon has a brilliant sense of humor that she managed to pour all around the book. It is so good and the final scene where the boys decide to give it a “try” was so funny I couldn’t stop laughing for a good 15 min. Not to mention the sex scenes being incredibly hot. Nothing soapy or awfully gentle and all that, just pure, primal, lusting sex that had me into it, but good. The protagonists were each and every one of them different and attractive in their own ways. I liked them all, having a soft spot for Christian for some reason. I think he was the one that was torn the most and his incredulity in the end was adorable.
I recommend this book to anyone really. this was a great read, fast, easy and highly entertaining. When the book ended I didn’t feel sorry it did, instead I was left with a great feeling that everything went as it was supposed to and content because it was really worth my time.
