Reviewed by Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite In Tally: A Polyamorous Romance by J.M. Northup, Tally Abram is a successful lawyer but when it comes to finding love, the cards seem stacked against her. She longs for a family of her own, but time is fast running out. She has just broken off with her married lover and decides to ask the closest people in her life, her married friends Lex and Ishkode Ackerman, to help father her child. Her proposal and the events that follow uncover cracks in a seemingly solid marriage between the two men, and also unresolved issues of jealousy and confused emotions. The three friends discover that love is sometimes not enough to become parents. The law is also against them. There is only one solution but it means heartbreaking sacrifices must be made, ones that threaten to tear the friendship apart. This is a story that will touch every emotion inside you. Tally is a wonderfully strong protagonist; she is willing to put her own needs to one side for the sake of others. Lex is a charming, witty and loving character too and the relationship between Ishkode (Kode) is beautifully relayed to the reader. The dialogue is realistic to the personality of each character. I thought the story was going to be about surrogacy and the emotional complications attached to it, but the author has cleverly woven a subplot into the story, dealing with the legalities of the trio's situation and how it does not align with the changing dynamics of the modern family structure. There are many great conflicts throughout, making the story incredibly engaging. The rights of the LGBT community to raise a family, the misconceptions around polyamory, and the confusing emotions of jealousy are all covered with sensitivity. There are some adult scenes but I feel they were appropriate and necessary to drive the story forward.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Tally: A Polyamorous Romance is a contemporary romance novel written by J.M. Northup. Lex felt personally culpable when he saw that Tally’s ex-boyfriend, George, had somehow gotten into Tally’s office and was harassing her. But Tally just didn’t see things that way. She had sent George packing with a threat to get a restraining order if he tried to see her again. Tally couldn’t ever forgive his behavior towards her or his wife. But Tally didn’t blame Lex for not being there to stop George. Being her assistant was not the same as being her bodyguard. Tally and Lex had been friends for just about their entire lives, and Lex’s husband, Kode, had also come to be considered as part of Tally’s extended family. Jazz, the ebullient and sometimes harsh Amazon who was Tally’s law partner, was quick to respond to George’s intrusion by laying blame on Lex, but Tally just wasn’t having it. When Jazz used her position in the firm as a partner to bully Lex, Tally came to a decision about Lex and his professional role. Jazz wouldn’t like it much, but it was the right thing to do. J.M. Northup’s contemporary romance novel is a warm and engrossing story about family and love. Tally’s decision to make Lex a partner, and her request to Lex and Kode, come from her heart and she’s willing to risk everything to make those things happen. Watching as the three friends come to terms with their relationships and establish new feelings of trust and security is a marvelous thing indeed. I especially enjoyed getting to see Lex and Kode’s interactions as well as how they work to accommodate their relationship with Tally. The highlight of this book for me, however, is the dinner Tally hosts for her extended family. It’s warm, magical and unforgettable. Tally: A Polyamorous Romance is most highly recommended.
