Ryan and Grace Sullivan have all the outward indications of a happy life: money, success, an undeniable physical attraction that quickly evolved from whirlwind relationship to marriage. But lately, Ryan's become moody and distant. As their relationship starts to crumble, Ryan discovers something about himself he can't admit just as Grace realizes the young man she encounters at an invitation only party, Henri Christophe, a celebrity chef with the most successful restaurant in Las Vegas, is her husband's lover. But Henri holds a secret himself. He wants to be more to both of them.
As they attempt to make their unconventional arrangement work, Ryan's deep-seated fear of relationship failure continues to thwart everyone's happiness. When he finally walks away instead of confronting the emotional connection the trio shares, he returns to find their lives flipped inside out. A sought after hotel and resort consultant, Ryan has yet to meet a problem he couldn't solve. But when it comes to his own heart, he may be too late.
Review by Lorena
This is the first book I read from this author and I have to say that I was highly impressed. I love these love triangle type of books that there aren't any cheating involved. Granted, it seemed at a time or two like one or the other was a cheater but in reality it was set up to be that way. I don't have anything against reading books with cheating involved. I know it's fantasy but this is what keeps the story interesting, whether we like it or not.
Ryan meets Grace and completely sweeps her off her feet immediately. They fall in love and marry and their marriage begins. After a while it seems like the honeymoon stage has worn off and Ryan starts pulling away from Grace being moody and uncommunicative. Grace starts feeling frustrated that her husband can't even talk to her. Well it's all because Henri comes in the picture and he is not only attracted to Ryan, it seems like the attraction is mutual. Ryan never thought he would feel this way towards another man because he's super in love with his wife. But things start unraveling little by little and Grace starts noticing her husband's changes and she, effectively realizes that her husband and Henri are lovers but not before she had a night of passion with Henri.
Their love blooms for each other between all three once Grace has solved the mystery of her husband's behavior. She was a bit shocked at the beginning but she eventually accepted it and she was actually turned on when she saw her husband and lover getting it on.
The chemistry and intensity they shared amongst each other was just beautiful and for them all to get along and cherish each other was unbelievable. I would get frustrated at times with Ryan but I suppose we all have demons that we want to fight internally and not share with anyone else. It took Ryan a devastating event for him to realize that his wife and Henri meant more to him than his precious job.
The happy ending was beautiful. I loved it and couldn't have asked for a better ending and they were able to make their love grow stronger by the day, by the hour and by the minute.
I am enamored now with the writing style from this author and I'm going to read more of her books.
