Blurb: How can one’s heart be divided without someone feeling left out, even if it’s yourself?

That was the challenge Mickey Payne, bass player for the band Social Sinners, was tasked with when he fell in love with two men. “The heart wants what the heart wants, and you’d be a fool to deny it,” his mother told him when he brought his concerns to her over the unconventional relationship he was in.

Entering into the triad, he of course had his reservations, but all doubt gets cast aside when they need his help.

Will his heart be able to survive?



Mickey played such a secondary role in the first two books, I was hoping that Diamond’s story would be next. However, this one surprised me. Mickey surprised me…and that is a great thing. We still get a healthy dose of Joey, Stoli, Diamond, and their group antics, but we finally get to see what makes Mickey tick. And what makes Mickey tick are two blond twinks named, Benny and River, AKA the “twins”. They are not twins, per se, they are a committed couple who happen to sometimes like to play with a third, who are small in stature and have blond hair and blue eyes. But none of them expected that third to be Mickey, nor to be permanent.
In addition, we get further insight into the band Maiden Voyage, who they look up to and tour with, and have become like family. That was proven in the last book, and continues in this one. I have a suspicion that Maiden Voyage will be having a series of their own. Hopefully. I would really love that as many secrets are hidden, alluded to, or just touched on in this series.
But back to Mickey and the twins. It is important to note that Mickey has never had a serious relationship, and the threesome said from jump street that it was just casual. Until it’s not, and until Mickey gets drunk, and until the appearance of ‘cheating’ causes a riff. Now, I am one that cheating doesn’t bother me in a book, and here, to me, this was not cheating as they never, not once, made a commitment, and Mickey was so gone he did not even realize the twink on his lap was not Benny. So, others will whine, I am sure, as that part tore them apart, and then, in a way, brought them together. Well, that and Diamond, and Stoli, and River’s bad health. So, yeah, there was a lot crammed into this story, but it was a great continuation from the first two and now I need to grab Diamond’s book next. I am not ready to let the Social Sinner go, just yet, and that is probably the best review I can give.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
