REVIEWS BY VICTORIA AND BRANDY! TRIFECTA BY KIM CARMICHAEL
Two men. One woman. It could ruin a friendship, or bring a satisfying twist to their lives. Artist, Jason Morgan, is used to making magic on the canvas. Now he hopes to do it in the bedroom. After a failed gallery showing, Jason decides the best way to cure his creative block is to act on his own personal fantasy, and enter into a sexual relationship with his two best friends. From the time they were in elementary school, Russell Sinclair has been a willing participant in Jason's adventures, but this one goes to a new level. He's intrigued by the idea of sharing one woman, but is challenged by how to fit this three-sided relationship into his traditional life. Lauren Redmond is no stranger to fantasy. As the aesthetic sales rep to the top Beverly Hills dermatologists, she is responsible for the majority of puffed lips and filled wrinkles in the greater Los Angeles area. She detours from her steady, secure path when she is offered the opportunity to live the dream with the two men who have occupied her heart since college. The fantasy fast becomes a powerful reality, and Lauren must decide if she is willing to give up everything she has worked for to have a bit of temporary decadence. Trifecta explores the boundaries of love, relationships and convention.
Jason Morgan is an artist that usually making magic on canvas and trying to be discovered and make the big time. What he wants more than anything is his two best friend all in one relationship together. Maybe it’s the artiest in Jason but he sees the world in more than black and white. I don’t think it would have occurred to either of the others to have a ménage relationship.
Russell Sinclair is Jason’s best friend since elementary school. He is a computer Architect. He is always in control and the opposite of Jason. He thinks things through before acting. Russell comes across as the guy every girl dreams about.
Lauren Redmond is an aesthetic sales rep to Beverly Hills dermatologist. She is on her way to landing a Doctor for a husband. However to do that she needs to put Jason and Russell away and that is a lot harder than she seems to think is it. She also wants both of them as well.
The chemistry between Jason, Russell, and Lauren is blistering. The sex scenes were scorching hot. In the bedroom, they have it all figured out. It seems once they leave the bedroom the three of them forget that they are friends and stop communicating. It’s almost like the other person should just know what the issues are.
I found this story to be well written and exciting. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. My only issue with the book was it was a bit long winded and it was hard to see that the three were friends when they did not talk to each other much. I did like seeing the three of them try to make the relationship work and the issues and problems that arise when one has an unconventional relationship in a conventional world. Overall, this was a good book.
This was a fun book that took a topic that is not every day conversation and pushed it out into the real world. The characters are well written and I have to say the sex is amazing between the three of them. When you have been friends as long as they have it is hard to take that next step. Even more so when there are three of them involved. Jason is a very selfish person but the creative nut in me thinks that is just what is personality makes him out to be.
I can see how hard it was for Russell to step out of the very conservative shell he has lived in his whole life. I did find it strange that after all the years they have been together, they still struggled for basic communication with each other. Did Russell and Lauren really need Jason there to tell them if they could be together or not?
At the end of the day this is a good book that I would recommend to anyone that likes a romance that breaks the mold.
