Warning: This story contains trucker fantasies, threesomes and kinky consensual sex.
That’s what it says on the tin, and whoa boy, the tin is right. This is one of those books people either love or hate, and I found myself going from one end of the spectrum to the other quite a few times, but you know what? This is a long book with a lot of sex, and the sex is really fucking hot, which is exactly what I was in the mood for. So recommended on that basis alone.[/box_light] [box_light]
Us Three by Mia Kerick
Heat Rating: Fire
Genre: Modern Romance, Gay, Young Adult, M/M/M
So I hadn’t expected to like a Young Adult polyamory novel, but holy crap guys, I loved it to pieces. It took me a while to get used to the writing style, since it’s told from three very different POVs, and I kept saying to myself, ‘I’m gonna put this down any minute now.’ And then I just… kept reading.
This book has some of the most vicious bullying I’ve ever come across in YA before, so be warned about that, but the character rises above it and remains a happy, outgoing boy throughout it all.
If you’re looking for something very different, this uniquely told tale is definitely it. I really hope Mia Kerick will revisit these boys in another novel where they’re all older. Highly recommended.
(I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.)[/box_light][box_light]
Relief Valve by JL Merrow
“They don’t make ‘em like that anymore, do they?” Phil muttered as we shuffled our feet on the Old Dean’s doorstep.
“Yeah they do. You can get them online. There’s this site: Snobs’ Knobs and Posh Knockers, it’s called.”
“Oh yeah? I’ve never been that into knockers, personally. Knobs, on the other hand….” Phil smirked.
Heat Rating: Molten
Genre: Modern Romance, Paranormal, Gay

I was SO EXCITED to see this book come out. I loved Tom and Phil in Pressure Head, and its sequel did not disappoint. I flew through this book like it was nothing, dying to know what was going to happen. I was really happy with the same humorous tone the first book had, but what really made it was that we got more of Tom and Phil’s relationship this time. I can’t wait to find out where they’ll take it in the next book. If you love a good British mystery with likeable characters and a slow burning romance, this is the book for you.[/box_light]
