About the Author

Samantha Wayland has three great loves in life; her family, writing books, and hockey. She is often found apologizing to the first for how much time and attention is taken up by the latter two, but they forgive her because they are awesome and she clearly doesn't deserve them.

Sam lives with her family-of both the two and four-legged variety-outside of Boston. She is a wicked passionate New Englander (born and raised) who has been known to wax rhapsodic about the Maine Coast, the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, and the sensible way in which her local brethren don't see a need for directional signals (blinkahs!). When she's not locked away in her home office, she can generally be found tucked in the corner of the local Thai place with other socially-starved authors and an adult beverage.

Her favorite things include mango martinis, tiny Chihuahuas with big attitude problems, and the Oxford comma.

Reviewed by Meli Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book First of all I have to say this is a book that is not for every reader. I liked the premise of a woman finally getting her dream, yet it fell short for me. Destiny had it all but wanted more in my opinion. I mean she had Patrick and for me I thought ruined it when she wanted it also with Brandon. Right off the bat I was like she had it perfect with Patrick. Now Patrick also has some issues with him. One minute he wants Destiny then the next he is in an usual way wanting his best friend Brandon. The story kept going back and forth making me miss things. Then to top it off someone is after Brandon and it is up to Patrick to catch them before it’s too late. Samantha Wayland had a good story going but for some reason it just didn’t grab my attention. To be honest I had a hard time getting into the story. For me this kind of menage (with m/m action) was just not it for me which really saddened me because the blurb was good.

## Fantastic read. I truly enjoyed this story. I love menage stories, especially with reluctant m/m interaction. This book had plenty of that. It was so heartwrenchingly fun to watch Patrick come to terms with his feelings for another man. Occasionally I felt that Destiny was superfluous, that the love story was centered solely on the men. However, I still would highly recommend this book. The sex was rediculously hot and that never hurts. Nice job Ms. Wayland.

An emotional, erotic triad love story that presents the issue of friends becoming lovers – always a hit in my book!  The 3 main characters deal with attraction to each other, bigotry, societal norms and the courage to live and love freely.  All of this is wrapped around a suspense plotline dealing with the mafia and those who deem it their right to judge and pass sentence on others.  I enjoyed the dynamics of Patrick learning to accept his love for Brandon that went deeper than best friend status.  His turmoil is depicted realistically and honestly.  It takes longer in the book to uncover the demons in Destiny’s closet that explains her emotional distance but it is no less satisfying.  I loved Brandon and his openness to his sexuality, love for his friends and the depth of that love that showcases his capacity for sacrifice.  The plot moves well, the writing is engaging and the character development is spot on.  This book is super hot and well worth a read!

Suspenseful and hot! I loved the characters and the struggle Patrick and Brandon go through plus what they try to show Destiny is right in front of her face the whole time. The emotional parts that go along with all the action draws you in and makes you feel like your going through it with them.

My Review: Honestly, this is one of the hottest, most romantic books that I have ever read. It's no secret that the friends-to-lovers trope is absolutely my favorite and this book is the ultimate friends-to-lovers trope. Destiny, Brandon, and Patrick have all three been friends since they were 15 years old. None of them had a great home life so they became each other's family for the last almost 20 years. Brandon & Patrick are police detectives. Brandon is bisexual and has been in love with Patrick for years, but Patrick is definitely heterosexual. Destiny and Brandon have been on again/off again friends with benefits several times over the last few years. When the book begins, no one is currently sleeping with anyone else between the three of them, although the desires are there. Right now they are all three simply friends...best friends. The book starts with Brandon & Patrick at a gay bar. They are there because one of their friends is playing in the band and someone hits on Brandon who refuses to take "no" for an answer. Patrick & Brandon end up kissing simply as a method to dissuade Brandon's suitor, but the kiss quickly spirals out of control for BOTH Brandon AND Patrick, much to his shock and surprise. Patrick is appalled and turned-on. He goes home in an absolute panic where Destiny is taking care of his dog. She quickly realizes that Patrick is so upset, not necessarily about what happened, but about how turned on he is by it. Destiny quickly starts to play with the idea of the three of them together- as a triad. She just has to get the guys to talking to each other again and to get them on-board with the plan. This is a first for all three of them, so this book is bursting with sexual tension. OMG, I have NEVER read such hot sex scenes as ther are throughout this entire book. And this is a full-length novel, so there are a LOT of sex scenes, but every single one of them is completely unique and incredibly hot. BUT this is not just a book about sex. There is also a fantastic suspense story line. Someone is targeting and attacking the three of them and the danger draws the three of them even closer together when circumstances might normally have driven them apart because of awkwardness. Along with that suspense is incredible romance. The basic nature of the situation- all new sexual experiences for all of them- means that emotions are very high, but add to that the danger that the three of them are faced with, OMG! So incredibly romantic. So incredibly intense. I started this book and could not put it down. The book was amazing! Patrick is the typical alpha, take-charge kind of guy. When his guy and girl are in danger, watch out...he goes into fierce protector mode. Both Brandon and him are part of the Boston PD and worry that if their relationship comes out, that it could threaten their jobs, but as they are targeted, that becomes harder and harder to "keep in the closet." This is a whole other source of tension. Brandon is used to hiding his feelings and emotions. He's been doing it for years. He's a natural peace-maker and a truly calm influence on those around him. He's doing everything he can to protect both Brandon & Destiny from the backlash of their relationship. Both of these guys are amazing and watching their relationship develop is absolutely beautiful. It was absolutely the most gorgeous, heart-warming story line. Then there is Destiny. Self-assured

Looking for that story that grabs you from page one and doesn't let go? Look no further than Destiny Calls! Some of the hottest M/M scenes come when one or both of the men don't intend to go "that far" or when it's so spontaneous the intensity of the moment steals your breath. Destiny Calls is that type of book. Patrick and Brandon are best friends and have been since they were kids watching each other's backs, so there is a bond between them that has never been blurred by intimacy. When circumstances create a reason, a need, to cross that line it becomes painfully obvious that they can never go back to just being friends. The journey to that elusive HEA that these men take, along with the third member of this triad, Destiny, isn't easy or without doubt and heartache. My heart raced, my eyes watered and I breathed a huge sigh of relief when the bad guys were defeated. There isn't a whole lot of spoken dialogue in this novel but it works for this story. Ms. Wayland gives us a lot of internal dialogue that shows the conflict Patrick, Brandon and Destiny each deal with. It's different for each character. Patrick never knew he was "in the closet" much less how to deal with the consequences when his department begins to suspect his involvement with Brandon AND Destiny. Brandon has always known he was gay and had secret feelings for Patrick but would never have acted on those feelings. Destiny has been in love with and dated Patrick off and on for many years. She wants more but does NOT do commitment!! As I said, emotions and tension runs deep in this book. So does the incredibly HOT sheet action but the author says it best... it's "Not just sex. Tenderness". I appreciated how Ms. Wayland painted Patrick as the dominant in the bedroom but she doesn't let him get away with always being on top. With love and tenderness, Brandon teaches Patrick it's okay to let someone else be in control.sometimes. The plot is multilayered and at one point I felt like that Ms. Wayland had thrown in a side story regarding the local mob that was unnecessary to the overall story. I couldn't have been more wrong. While the mob isn't the main plot it served a greater purpose of making Patrick more aware of himself and his feelings for Brandon. Ms. Wayland delivers an incredibly heart wrenching story that is so realistic at its core it's hard to open a paper or turn on the news and not see a story that relates. There is so much I would like to say about this book but it would give away too much of this story and it really needs to be read to be appreciated. If you love intensity in and out of the bedroom and thick throughout the book, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Destiny Calls. This was the first book by Ms. Wayland that I've read but it certainly won't be the last. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews
