Overview

Despite being betrayed and robbed by his long-term lover, gay paramedic Nolan Crane remains an undaunted romantic. He’s looking for true love to heal his broken heart. His partner and friend, John Krulak, is straight and commitment-phobic. He’s not looking for anything more than his next one-night stand. But lately, the thrill of the hunt doesn’t satisfy him.

Lucy Bellino is Nolan’s oldest friend. She loves him dearly, but platonically. With his permission, she’s delighted to have sex with John--anytime, anywhere. But even wildly adventurous sex with Lucy (against the wall in an alley, in the stationhouse in the middle of a shift, or with Lucy bound and blindfolded in the back of a van) can’t satisfy John the way his alarming new fantasies about his partner do.

All three carry scars from their past. All three are looking for some kind of lasting happiness. But if they’re going to have a future together, they’ll each have to find a way past their fears. And when one of them puts his own life in danger, it’s clear that the time for waiting is over. Ready or not, Nolan and his best friends are about to become lovers.

Meet the Author

Lyra Marlowe has been writing since—well, since she learned to write. Her very first book was selected to be read at the Young Author’s Conference for elementary school students. They told her she could write, and she’s never stopped.

As a teen, she conspired with her best friend to write a young adult novel. In college, she wrote plays that were performed by the theater department, and managed to hook an actor boyfriend in the process. She wrote poems, newsletter articles, and even a short story about a head in a box. After college she married the actor. One year he suggested that they write erotic stories for each other as Christmas gifts. She tried it. She liked it. A lot.

Her first erotic romance, Thirteen Silver Moons, was published in December of 2007. The Flavor of Summer was her first fictional foray into the world of BDSM, and its Fling-length short follow-up, First Taste, is available as a free read.

Lyra has lived on the shores of Lake Erie all her life, but dreams of a land where it never snows. She and her husband have three children, two dogs, and one demanding cat. They share a Victorian century home with a gentle grandmother ghost who loves babies but hates painted woodwork and the color purple.

Reviewed by: Molly Book provided by: Publisher Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Normally, a review of a book like this would be a high praising one. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with this book. Don’t get me wrong, the plot line is well written. However, it just didn’t have the ‘ommph’ needed to completely capture me. I wasn’t able to stay focused on this story like I wanted to, and the end results didn’t have a wonderful feeling for me. Nolan and John’s characters are well chiseled, however, they are not strong characters for me. I didn’t feel drawn to them as I normally would. One was straight and having fantasies about his best friend and the other one wanted a relationship without ruining lives. The way that took place just lacked for me, and by the time the realizations were met, I was unfocused and didn’t want to return to it. When Lucy enters the picture, the story does pick up a bit, as she tries her best to be a wonderful friend and help these two men realize that what they have is worth it. The menage scenes are spicy and definitely heats the story up. Lucy is a sweet girl and wanted nothing more than to help these men achieve what their hearts weren’t letting them. In the end, I do still recommend you try this book. It’s a book that was unable to hold MY attention, but you may find that this is a book you can fall in love with. Will I try more work by Ms. Marlowe? Sure. Just because one book is lacking, doesn’t mean all books by that author will be. I look forward to trying out another of her pieces and seeing how things go.
