Blurb: Captain Xavier Hobbs, a decommissioned combat engineer, was chronically lonely in the Army. But once he is back to being a civilian, with no family and nothing to ground him, he drifts. All he wants is a real home, a real life, and love—but that is easy to wish for and hard to make happen.
When he meets Andrew Landry, a high school English teacher, Xavier thinks he has found everything he has ever wanted, maybe even someone he can trust with his scars—the ones on his mind and body. Andrew’s quick wit and outgoing personality reel Xavier in slowly but surely. But he isn’t certain which way Andrew swings, and doesn’t dare to do more than hope the friendly man is actually flirting.
Then, on what Xavier idly wishes were their first date, disaster strikes in the form of Duncan McNeil, a fellow Wiccan and Andrew’s fiancé. Xavier’s hope is smashed to pieces, but Duncan and Andrew may have a different point of view. All they need is a little magic, some hope, and a lot of love to put everything back together.
Review: Oh…the feels. 🙂 I have read quite a few ménage books lately, and this one ranks right up there with some of my favorites. Xavier, throughout the book, seems so lost, sad and broken. All he wants is to fit somewhere and be loved, and that is what Andrew and Duncan give him. I have to be honest, when Andrew and Xavier are at the coffee shop the first time and the ring is mentioned, I was pretty sure he was going to be a cheating douche, but happily (for me) he wasn’t.
I think Duncan may have been my favorite of the main characters. He was their rock, whom they went to for assurance; he was the levelheaded one in the group, but so sweet and caring. The three of them together were so hot, or just two of them…whew!
The Wiccan and magical parts of the story were a little lost on me. For me, it didn’t seem to really add anything to the story or the relationship between the guys. Also, for as big of a jerk as Andrew’s brother was, I kind of liked him. His whining and ranting and bickering made me laugh, and that is one of the reasons I love reading: it’s all the feelings and emotions you can get from a book which take you out of your head for that time, where you can just relax and enjoy. This book did that for me.
