I was in a reading rut for a while, then I finally sat down to read Hunger Games. I’m not going to pick Gale or Peeta or even Finnick. No, I’m going to pick two guys from a menage book I downloaded on a whim from Amazon’s recs page. Night is Darkest by Jayne Rylon features two hot cops who have been best friends with the little sister of a force buddy for over a decade. In the face of tragedy, they are there to comfort her but she needs much much more from the pair, already in a relationship with each other.
Mason and Tyler are totally hot and here’s who I picture for each:

I have to say, I really like M/M/F novels wherein the men are also involved with each other, not simply there to please the woman. I mostly just don’t believe that two men can be with a woman without finding some kind of sexual attraction to one another.
(Model Travis Hanson)
The problems herein are that Lacey comes to realize she wants them both, Mason won’t admit that he’s gay (even though he’ll sleep with Ty even when they’re not having a threesome) and Tyler’s trying to bring them all together.
An excerpt, Mason:
“He couldn’t admit his feelings to her or she’d never let him leave, no matter that it was the right thing to do. Instead, he hedged. ‘Ty is my best friend. Of course I care about him. And you, too.’
‘No, Mason. You’re in love with him. Big difference.” She cupped his jaw with trembling fingers, forcing him to look her straight in the eye as she allowed a fraction of an inch between their faces.”
It’s a good book, if not slightly over the top. The characters seemed real, though, and their emotional baggage very real. If nothing else, it was realistic in how they came about making their threesome work.
