The Loving Triad, 3 Is Not A Crowd

Last week we discovered there were 500,000 polyamorous relationships in the US as of 2009. That makes me smile just thinking about it. My favorite kind of polyamorous relationship depicted in literature is the triad. The triad is made up of three people equally involved with each other in a committed sexual relationship.

Tymber Dalton wrote the Love Slave for Two a m/m/f series. This is one of the most well known triad series there is. It's also one of my favorites (even though it's not always super hot) because Ms. Dalton's story focuses on the real world issues of being in a poly relationship. 

In each book the triad face new problems within the relationship as well as external issues such as spousal/non-spousal rights at the hospital, and legal battles with the family over their children. By the end of book two I was ready to buy my polyamory banner and march on Washington for polyamory rights.

Another really hot well known triad love story is Emma Holly's Billionaire Badboy's Club. This triad is formed with two wealthy men and a great gal. While that story doesn't delve into the legal ramifications of being in a triad, (they're billionaires, they can fuck horses if they want),

the story does go into the real emotional issues of the relationship with the full spectrum of insecurity and communication issues from all three partners.

Trumpets please, Dun  dada dunnnn!

I'm pleased to present to you two books that I recently read that I absolutely love. The Dom With The Perfect Brats (my first m/f/f) and Destiny Calls (my new favorite m/m/f).

I was going to do two separate posts on them because they are sooo fabulous they both deserve the spot light BUT, they are both triad books, ones a m/f/f, the other is a m/m/f, and they are both set in Boston. 

Boston Goes Bi a Triad Love Story

What are the freakin odds? I think they were meant to be posted together...

I'd never read a triad M/f/f  HEA until a week ago when I read The Dom with the Perfect Brats (Badass Brats book 3) by the author trio Black, Shaw, and Silverwood. I'm really digging these co-op author books. These aren't anthologies they are full flowing co-authored stories.

I've read m/f/f where the f/f is a secondary relationship to the m/f  and I've also read books where the f/f action was just a sensual fun time bonus for a scene or two. Never a full m/f/f HEA. Honestly the m/f/f menage and/or triad isn't high up on my fantasy list. There are plenty of m/f/f HEA books out there, but they generally do not appeal to me. 

I am bi-capable (I'll explain later)

I'm very rarely attracted to another women so it makes sense that I would rarely be in the mood to read a m/f/f book. This one caught and held my interest, so much that now I have to read the rest of the series. It's so good. 

The Dom with the Perfect Brats (Badass Brats 3), by Black, Shaw and Silverwood

Gemma is a badass, often sassy, tattoo artist. She's just moved to the Boston area for a fresh start. She goes into a local tattoo shop begging for work when she meets Godfrey Cross. Cross is big'n hot alpha and the epitome of Dom.

Izzy is a sweet free spirit from Australia. Izzy is also in the Boston area for a fresh start. When Izzy walks into the tattoo shop she feels an instant attraction to Gemma and Cross.

Although Gemma and Izzy are fast friends Gemma has never been attracted another girl before and is a little slower on the uptake. That's okay, they have plenty of time to figure out the whole girlfriends, girlfriends thing while perusing Cross together.

Cross has been a lone wolf for quite a while. He's had a string of subs but never any he's wanted to keep. He's had a rough life but seeing his best friends in a happy committed relationship has made him start longing for more. When Cross meets the girls he knows exactly what he wants to do with the two little brats. Too bad they're vanilla.

The strong attraction to both girls takes Cross by surprise but not as much of a surprise as when the girls decide they both want to date Cross together. None of them have any expectations of their relationship making the long haul. 

Can Cross convince the girls they are natural subs and vanilla is not for them? Can these fun, wild and free girls get Cross to loosen the uber Dom reins and find a little tolerance for two perfect brats?

When I began reading The Dom with the Perfect Brats I had no idea that it was third in the series but I never once felt lost or left out.

I loved the entire journey each character takes to get to the HEA of this book. All three of them have very different, very real emotional hang ups. The chemistry is hot between each pairing as well as all three of them together. There is lots of laughter, love and smoking hot at home BDSM scenes.

Cross is a now a favorite Dom/heroes of mine. I just loved him. I adored Izzy and I found my self able to really relate to Gemma. She hasn't ever been attracted to another female before Izzy but quickly embraces the fact that she's into another chick. I get that.

I've met a total of four women I've been sexually attracted to, all complete opposites, (I guess I don't have a type). Each time was very exciting like I had gained a new talent. 

Look at me I'm ambidextrous.

I've had many female friends through the years that have gone on and on about their love of females. Oh, girls are great. They're all soft and beautiful. I almost love making out with girls more than guys.

I was kind of jealous. Like, what was wrong with me that I couldn't get turned on by chicks? I felt liberated by being about to find a female arousing. This specific gift doesn't come around very often and I never know when I'll get hot and bothered by some random female but it's always kind of thrilling when I do. And that is why I call it bi-capable.

This was a smoking hot book, I can't wait for the next book in this series and I look forward to reading the first book in the Badass Brat series The Dom with a Safeword. 

Full Length Novel @ 112,000 word count.

Warning; This book contains a saucy tattoo artist with a love for the strap, a Dom who turns bratty girls into sex zombies, and a Big Evil Bed that's used to tie up unsuspecting subs. Contains BDSM, M/f/f and f/f sex.

Thank You Black, Shaw and Silverwood!!!

I don't think most people would find the discovery of being bi-capable half as exciting as I do. I wonder how freaky it would be for a gay person to suddenly be attracted to the opposite sex. I imagine a hetro grown man getting a chub and naughty longings at the first meeting of some other guy would be enough to freak him out for life.

In our next story that's basically what happens and my number one all time favorite fantasy plays out.

I've read a lot, A LOT of m/m/f and m/f/m but seriously this one may be the best ever. I soaked through my panties just reading the sample and it only gets better as it goes along...

Destiny Calls by Samantha Wayland

Brandon is sick of being in love with his best friend Patrick. Patrick and Brandon have grown up together and now in their thirties serve on the Boston PD together. Brandon is bi, sadly not dating and his arm is getting tired from carrying a torch for Patrick, a big 6'4 sexy wall of strait man. 

One trip to see a band at a gay bar and before Brandon knows it Patrick is claiming he is his boyfriend and laying on a convincing lip lock so scorching the whole place is cheering. Patrick figures, why not, if he has to kiss a guy it might as well be Brandon. What's the harm?

The kiss changes EVERYthing. 

Brandon is hurt and Patrick has new feelings and an arousal that was definitely not there before. On top of that Patrick was just getting geared up to make a play for their other best friend Destiny. 

Destiny has grown up with the guys and considers them the only real family she's ever had. Destiny loves Brandon and Patrick but isn't a forever kind of girl. For over a decade she and Patrick have had an on again off again fuck buddy agreement. She's been longing for on again but doesn't think Patrick desires her anymore. 

Then she finds out that, yes, Patrick still wants her but he's got some confusing things going on with Brandon. Destiny has always had a crush on Brandon but didn't want to ever come between the guys. It's never occurred to her that she could come between, beneath, on top of, both the guy at the same time. That is until she sees them kiss. Then that's all she can think about. 

Patrick wants a happily ever after, Brandon is freaking out and Destiny is a commitment phobe after my own heart.

This is one is a super hot erotic read but the plot also carries a well done suspense story line throughout that of course brings lots of emotions to the surface as well as bringing these three together. The love these three have for each other had me tearing up more than a few times. 

Is it possible to have a crush on a book? If so, I've got it bad. I want to have this book's babies. I adore these characters. I love this story and it may be a while before I can hear the name Patrick and or Brandon without instantly getting wet. 

Samantha Wayland knows how to build up to some explosive love scenes, sheesh! If you don't get so aroused, just reading the sample of this book, that you forget where you are for a second, you may need to check yourself for a pulse. 

She has another scorching triad book, With Grace, that technically comes before Destiny Calls that I haven't read yet. I'm all over it.

Full Length Novel @ 314 pages

Warning; This book contains the hottest, most mouth watering m/m/f triad loving ever. Multiple pantie changes may be required. 

Thank You Samantha Wayland!!!

  1. Wow! Thank you so much for this. I am flattered to the tips of my toes. :) If you like this, you might also like With Grace (previous book where you meet Patrick - similar experience for Philip as Patrick). Also, if you like hockey players, you might like what's coming out next (no dates yet).
