Menage Mondays: What We Deserve by Kerry Freeman

What We Deserve by Kerry Freeman
Novella: 138pages
Rating: 4 out of 5

Years after Sean’s heart was broken by his first love Jamie, he is ready to try his hand at love again with Tyler, his handsome, perfect-geek-for-him boyfriend. But when Jamie returns home after twelve years in the Army, Sean finds himself unable to choose between his passion for Tyler and his still smoldering desire for Jamie.

But if Jamie and Tyler get along, maybe he won’t have to choose after all.

We meet Sean who tells his story of how he fell in love with his best friend Jaime at 12, and how his feelings have grown now that he’s 18. Watching Jaime graduating from college fills Sean with pride, and when Jaime invites him to a college party Sean is happy to be hanging with the man he loves. He could never tell him how he feels, because he fears rejection but Jaime surprises him with a love confession of his own. He is also in love with Sean, and now he can do something about it. They make love for the first time, Sean being a virgin, is happy Jaime is his first. He believes he finally has the man he loves, until the next morning when he finds out Jaime is gone.

Twelve years later Sean is successful and fully out, and has a boyfriend Tyler who he adores and his life is good. He still bares the pain of Jaime’s rejection and betrayal, and is happy if he never sees him again. Until his parents tell him, that Jaime has left the army and is returning home. It’s hard to avoid someone when your parents are close friends, and Sean can’t avoid Jaime forever. Things get complicated when Jaime says he has returned for Sean, and he has loved him for all the years. In that moment, Sean is the boy who loved his best-friend and those feeling are hard to turn off.

So Sean has his boyfriend Tyler, and the lover who left him behind and now wants to be with him. Though Jaime accepts Sean is in a relationship, he is happy as friends and would be happy to remain so. However, the chemistry is strong between the men when they go clubbing. Sean and Tyler likes when Jaime watches them together, and there seems to be brewing chemistry between Tyler and Jaime.

I really enjoyed this one, it had me smiling from ear to ear, and the chemistry between the men was hot. The ménage was handled quite well, though it moved a bit quickly, I believed in their love. I liked Jaime, though he did pull a big douche move by deflowering and leaving Sean, he makes up for it (cus he so sweet). I liked Tyler; he’s a little firecracker and creates a nice balance in the relationship.

The guys do deal with some family drama, but it’s all dealt with a happy ending. Who doesn’t want accepting parents, because if your child is happy, isn’t that what matters the most? I think that’s why I like this book so much; it made my heart feel super happy. It’s not original when it comes to the whole ménage trope, but it was fun and I liked the characters a lot. Plus, I am somewhat bias. It’s hard to hate 3 guys fucking (surprisingly I have hated it). It was a 3.5 rating but I bumped it up because it had me smiling all freaking day. Its sweetness kinda stays with you for a bit.
