I received this book as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
So, I went into this expecting something, fun, sexy, and pretty light on plot, and character, and somehow I ended up with three men I grew to really like, and many feels. The plot is pretty simple, and it was easy to understand the background, and what was going on even without having read any of the seven books that came before it. Maybe reading them would have given me more of an idea who the secondary cast was, but I didn't feel lost without that knowledge, and I felt like I came to know them pretty well though what I saw of them in this novelette.
I really liked the main cast of characters. Things between them might have developed fairly quickly, but it felt authentic to me. It was more about them making a decision to make a relationship work then them falling instantly in love. I liked that it took compromise on all of their parts, and that had to make a very clear decision to listen to, and trust each other. I liked that the relationship, while sexy, wasn't just about physical connection, but the support, and trust they have to each other. I liked that it wasn't about one, or two men taking care of a weaker man, but about all of them taking care of each other equally. It was sweet, and I appreciated that.
I liked the writing style, It was simple, and it made the emotions seem that much more real to me. Nothing too flowery, or purple even when it came to the sex scenes. I liked how the author phrased things, and the last lines really did me in especially from a book I didn't expect it from. I'm such a sucker for books about families, especially families of choice. Overall a really great read, especially for a very cold day.
