Threefold, Book 2 – Brad
Erotic contemporary romance, BBW, bisexual
Blurb Brad Miller thought he was being attentive to his girlfriend's needs when he talked his best friend into having sex with her. It's Becca's fantasy he wants to fulfill, and that's the only reason he's trying to convince Colin to join the two of them on her birthday. Colin stubbornly insists it's a bad idea. Feelings may develop and risk their friendship, as well as Brad's relationship with Becca. But Brad wants it all, and for the first time in his life, he doesn't want to think about consequences. Until consequences catch up with him, and he's forced to admit an attraction he isn't prepared for.
Note: The story includes hot boys being sexy together, and with a big, beautiful woman.
“What I feel is wrong.” Colin still held on to Brad’s shirt.
“Not if it doesn’t hurt anyone.”
“It can hurt me,” Colin said through gritted teeth.
“I won’t let it.” Again Brad made a promise he didn’t fully understand. “If you fall for her, and she falls for you…maybe she won’t have to choose.” Where had that come from? He and Becca had invited Colin to their bed, not their relationship.
Colin’s eyes held confusion and something else. Hope? Whatever it was, it vanished as swiftly as it had appeared. “Please let it go. This isn’t good for any of us. What happened—I shouldn’t have done it.”
He regretted one of the best nights of Brad’s life.
Ice water poured through Brad veins. “I see. Okay.” He slapped Colin’s hands away, and turned to leave.
“I said I’d tell you the truth, so”—Colin took a sharp breath—“it’s not just about Becca. I can’t do this with you. ”
Brad faced him again. Studied his drawn face through narrowed eyes. Did Colin mean he wanted Becca to himself, or…
“If I keep seeing you naked, so close to me, eventually looking won’t be enough. I’ll slip, and I’ll touch you. And you’ll be disgusted by me.”
Brad could hear the unspoken ‘too.’ Colin had told him about his fallout with his brother, who’d waited until their father was hospitalized to spew bile at Colin for his sexual preferences. “I’m not Alan, Colin.”
Colin let out a forced laugh. “Oh, believe me, I know. I never wanted to fuck my brother.”
And there it was, out in the open. The one word that changed it all.
Colin wanted to fuck him.
Brad is the second book in the Threefold trilogy
***ARC provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. ***
I didn't ever think I would ever read a story leading to a threesome that I would enjoy, but I'm loving this series. Mostly because they aren't jumping into anything, but actually giving it thought and showing us the reasons and everything leading to it.
While Colin laid down the foundation, Brad gave us a whole different view into the series and where it might head. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t what I got, not that I’m complaining. For one, surprisingly, Colin and Brad were even hotter than I thought they would be, all things considered. Brad’s confusion, and the way he couldn’t just stop thinking for Colin and trying to get him to communicate with him, were clear indicators that as I expected, there was more to Brad than met the eye at first. Which, granted, after meeting his mother, is not all that difficult to believe that he’d had so many repressed thoughts and desires.
I also enjoyed seeing a bit more of Brad and Becca through Brad’s POV this time. And seeing how open he is to something more with Colin and Becca, even if he hasn’t spoken to Becca about this. And I’m really intrigued over how Becca is going to react to everything that went through in this installment when Brad tells her about it. I also loved reading that Brad isn’t doing this only for Becca, but for himself, even if he hadn’t realized it at first.
Definitely a very solid segue to the first book in the series that just whet my appetite for more!
Rating: 4.5 Stars.
