Blurb: Three’s a disaster when things come unraveled.
Rock star Nate Keller is on top of the world, but his headlining tour has one drawback. It keeps him away from his boyfriends, Theo and Cameron, for weeks at a time. Yet after four-and-a-half years-and a lot of hard work-the trio is still going strong.
But then Cam comes to visit with devastating news. After seventeen years together, he and Theo have agreed to a trial separation. Nate tries desperately to fix his lovers’ broken relationship, but there’s only so much he can do from the road.
At home, Cam tries to carry on, but feels like his whole life is spiraling out of control. Theo struggles to cope with the split as his depression worsens. They’re both spinning their wheels, quickly losing hope they can keep it together-and keep the man they both still love.
Desperate, Nate drops everything in a last-ditch attempt to pull their trio back together before they hit rock bottom. Except their love could already be shattered beyond repair.
This was one of the most heartbreaking and angsty stories I have ever listened to. I am a huge fan of existing couples, and in this case, we have an existing throuple, which kind of makes the whole breakup and struggle to get back together thing that much worse. This story is pure pain and heartache from beginning to almost end. For someone who goes for the angst, it was almost too much for me.
Cam and Theo are legally married and have been together for over 17 years. For the last five years, they have joined with Nate, who is equally loved and loves them both equally, as well. The issue with this threesome is not jealousy nor an unfair exchange of time or love, but communication…and fear, and pride. Both Cam and Theo are struggling but keep their struggles to themselves. In other words, they lie when asked if they are okay, and they get mad if pushed. It was quite an eye opener to see something so real life being performed so realistically. The narrator was on his game in this audio.
Nate is the odd man out, not because he is not “married” to them but because he is a musician and is always traveling and on the road. So finding out his family was splitting up put a serious strain on Nate and his career. Theo and Cam are a package deal, and it kills him to have to see them each separately. This is a really difficult audio to listen to because the narrator performed each character, and their heartfelt pain, so well that my heart was left lodged in my throat. There were times when I heard how much they all loved each other, but I also could easily see them going their separate ways. It took near the entire book, but once Cam and Theo talked, really talked, and started to heal, then they once again included Nate back in to the threesome, the pain slowly drifted away and I knew they were going to be okay.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
