Being alone was what Blake had always needed before his new team of bodyguards arrived. Now things might be very different.

At seven years old, Blake’s life was destroyed when he and his parents were abducted and he watched them being murdered. Now, twenty years later, he refuses to leave the house and he lives in a constant state of fear. He has a bodyguard around the clock, a housekeeper who has never seen his face and an uncle who checks on him often but isn’t all that close to him. Blake likes his isolation where only his cat really knows him.

His bodyguard of eight years is ready to retire, leaving his life in turmoil again. Blake isn’t good with people in general, and new people are the worst. But he needs someone in his house all the time to make him feel safe. His uncle hires a team of bodyguards to replace his old one—Malcolm, CJ and Rex. They come highly recommended, and they’re good at what they do.

They’re also together and it’s a relationship that Blake is instantly fascinated by. He’s never been interested in another person before, and he hasn’t had a real friend since his parents died, because he has refused to leave the house. But with the three of them trying to be there for him, he begins to want a life he has been convinced up to now would be completely impossible.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Blake hasn't left the house in 20 years, and his bodyguard for the last 8 years is retiring. His uncle recruited three new ones, Malcolm, CJ, and Rex. They aren't just a team, they are in a committed relationship with each other. Blake is fascinated by the love they show each other, and is scared too. He is scared they might actually be the ones to help him, and that scares him more than never leaving the house.

I enjoyed this book. It took a turn that I did not see coming, and maybe, its because I read too many books with twisted plot lines, and too much smut!

Its told entirely from Blake's point of view, and while, for the most part, I didn't mind, there were key points along the way I really needed to hear from the guys, either one of them.

I read far more into Uncle Phin than I should have. I saw a long and complicated plot line involving the trauma that Blake suffered all those years ago, and it just wasn't there. And I don't know if I'm disappointed by that fact, or pleased that I was so wrong!!

It is, for a male/male multi partner book, relatively clean, and I DID like that. Some playing, but no full scenes between any of them, and it did make a change.

Because it was told from only Blake's point of view, there is very little about Malcolm, CJ and Rex' history, I would have liked some more, just to fill in the gaps.

I loved that Blake was, finally, able to leave the house, and take his cat on a boat trip! With three husbands!

Really nice, easy read, just what you need to read when feeling under the weather!

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

Caitlin was fortunate growing up to be surrounded by family and teachers that encouraged her love of reading. She has always been a voracious reader and that love of the written word easily morphed into a passion for writing. If she isn't writing, she can usually be found studying as she works toward her counseling degree. She comes from a military family and the men and women of the armed forces are close to her heart.

She also enjoys gardening and horseback riding in the Colorado Rockies where she calls home with her wonderful fiance, their dog and Blue Tongue Skink. Her belief that there is no one true path to happily ever after runs deeply through all of her stories.
