- Generic but attractive
- Memorable after I put it down for a few hours
- I'm glad the author has us experience the story from all three characters' points of view
- I really wanted to read until they all got together…
- Ian's mom is really cool about their relationship...
- Ian - the quiet one - seems to be the coordinator and instigator now
- This was a cute, well-rounded story, not porn without plot like so many poly books out there
- Hip deep
Mood Upon Completion
- Very few typos
- Decently hot
- Decently sweet
- …but Mitch's alcoholic sister was slowly making it impossible for me to continue*
- …but Mitch's 'the definition of a relationship is that it's between two people' mom needs to get over herself; it must chafe to have a worldview that narrow**
- Weakly emotional
- Non-con (main, one, present)^
- Drug use (consensual, alcoholism, supporting, one, past/present)
*Nick probably should have dumped his sister a long time ago; it’s pretty clear he’s enabling her alcoholism and she’s not interested in getting help anytime soon. My tolerance for drunks is slim to none for personal reasons.
^One of the main characters was getting a blowjob, and asked the guy to stop, but the guy refused. In case you don’t understand, as soon as one of the people says no or stop and it’s not a previously agreed upon kink scene, that means you stop; continuing despite their protests is sexual assault.
**Not everyone understands poly relationships, but the characters are right in that you can’t live for other people; they don’t really matter, in the grand scheme of your life.
