Overview

When faced with a challenge, it’s best to pool your resources.

Liam Mattson used to play his wife’s body like a fine violin. Until a logging accident dampened his fine motor skills and rendered his legs—and the most important part of his below-the-waist playground—useless.

If only Liam would throw himself into therapy with the same vigor he used to throw her into bed, Ivy is sure he’d fully recover. But lately she’s felt adrift, while he’s stuck in self-pity and pre-occupation with a serious threat to his logging business.

When Ward Bose returns from the backwoods, Liam isn’t blind to the heated, guilty glances between his best friend and his wife. And he takes a step he never could have taken if his legs were working—ask Ward to service Ivy in bed.

The moment the three come together, Ward’s heartstrings are tied in knots, and Liam holds them in his fist. But secrets they’re each keeping could tear them all apart…unless they can find a way to share their burdens as easily as they share their love.

Warning: Men who wield big saws know how to take care of business—in bed and out.

Wow! Fevered Hearts was really freaking good. I already knew that Ms. Petrova could write unbelievably hot ménage romances as I have read several of them. What I did not know was how good she was at writing romantic suspense. And she is GOOOOOOD!  I loved that the book opened with Ward seeing Ivy for the first time and experiencing an immediate attraction for her before knowing who she was. Their natural sexual attraction actually went a long way in cementing the realism of the arrangement Liam proposes and the eventual relationship they all enter into because it showed that Ward wanted Ivy for Ivy and not just because of Liam and the history the two men shared. But it’s that history that makes it possible for Liam to ask Ward to help him show his wife that she is beautiful and sexy and important. Liam not only trusted Ward with Ivy, but he also trusted Ward with his pride and his heart. After the initial shock, it was their mutual trust that made the relationship possible – Ivy trusted Liam to have her best interest in heart when inviting Ward into their relationship, Ward trusted Liam not to let his presence interfere with Liam and Ivy’s marriage, and Liam trusted Ivy to fall in love with Ward and still love him – oh yeah, our boy Liam had a long-term plan whether he realized it or not. There were so many places for jealousy to emerge and ruin the budding relationship, yet it did not. Liam could have easily become resentful of Ward’s physical abilities and that Ward could please Ivy in ways he no longer could, but he didn’t; instead he used the visions of Ivy and Ward as motivation to commit to his physical rehab so that he could join the two people he loved the most and make theirs a true ménage relationship. No matter when the couplings occurred, each and every sex scene in the book was HAWT!!! It didn’t matter what the combination was either – MF, MFM, or MMF – they were all scorchingly hot.  As if the relationship development and super-hot sex scenes were not enough, Ms. Petrova weaves it all within a rather gripping romantic suspense plot. Initially, the trouble that Liam’s family is having with environmentalists seems to be par for the course in the life of an owner of a logging company, especially with the recent bad press they suffered when the company contracted to replant after an area that was harvested failed to fulfill their contract and disappeared with their money. But as the story progresses, things begin to heat up as property is vandalized and death threats are made. What I enjoyed about the suspense element is that I learned the facts at the same time the characters did, so while I knew something was going on, I was no more aware of who the culprit was than they were. This ratcheted up the suspense and made the reveal that much more shocking. I loved Fevered Hearts and am excited to add yet another Em Petrova novel to my re-read shelf.  I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

Fevered Hearts by Em Petrova I read this book by Em Petrova with no prior knowledge of her work. I love her though. The heat in this trio was way more than 5 stars worth. I love the descriptions and the explicitness of the sexual situations.  I love the thought of Lumberjacks all muscle bound taking their woman. I want to read more by Em as soon as I can.  The writing is very good. I recommend you add her as a new favorite on your list.  I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this book. It has romance, danger, and is emotional. Liam was injured in a logging accident. A tree fell on him and he was badly hurt. He is now in a wheelchair and a year later still hasn’t gone to therapy. He was told that with therapy he may walk again and have a better use of his hands. He hasn’t gone because what if nothing changes. He and his wife Ivy have grown apart. She is now the one bringing in the money. She works and the courthouse and sell items in knits on the internet. She longs for him to want her like he used to. She doesn’t care if he ever walks again she just wants to feel connected to her husband again. Then Ward comes back to town and everything changes. Years ago Ward and Liam went out west together to forge their own way and found something more together. They had a relationship and then one day Liam almost got hurt and Ward kissed him in front of their coworkers and Liam went off on him. He came home never to speak to him again. Now Ward is back and wants to help his friend. He saw Ivy at his sister’s Friday night get together. He is immediately attracted to her. Then he learns she is Liam’s Wife. Ward Visits Liam and an unlikely turn of events are started. Liam realizes how he has let down Ivy over the last year. He wants Ward to give Ivy the things he can’t until he can. He is going to go back to work and start going to therapy. Ivy is confused at first and then once things progress she finds herself loving two men. Both Ward and Liam are working for different logging companies but both are faced with things that happened in their absence. They are going to work together in all ways to help each other. Activists are all over Liam’s family logging company and now they have upped the game by threatening Ivy. Liam and Ward will do everything in their power to protect her. This book was fantastic. Who wouldn’t want to alpha males? The story is great. Liam is learning to overcome what happened to him and do something about it. Ivy is faced with loving to men, one her husband and the other his best friend. She learns that at one time they were together. Ward joins in and is faced with worry that he may be asked to leave them both one day. They all come to love each other and lean on each other like they never thought about before. There were twists and turns in the book. I will be looking for other books by this author and would love to read more about the characters in this book as well. I was given this book in return for an honest review.
