Add to Goodreads:
How far will they go to protect paradise…
From a very early age, I was warned to stay away from the Lawson brothers…
It didn’t matter they weren’t biological brothers or that one had been adopted on a guilt-driven whim. They considered one another family. They shared a bond like any other brothers would.
Except it ran much deeper.
They had all the power, money, and hunger capable of destroying anyone who stood in their way as they trained to become icons the world watched every four years bring home gold medals.
Little did anyone know, there was only one thing the legends worshipped more than their beloved sport.
*This is a forbidden, taboo, MMF, dark romance novel that includes several triggers
Wow!!! Just wow!! I am speechless over this book. It was very unexpected and unlike any book I have ever read! It is dark, twisted and sick as f**k. Unimaginable, yet I could not put it down.
When I first started reading this book, I was like oh another hot ménage a trois read. Boy was I wrong. Yes it starts out with Eden coming back into the lives of the two men who ruined her for all men and broke her heart and soul to pieces.
Ian and Thatcher don’t expect to see Eden. But when they do they fulfill the promise they made to themselves and all bets are off. Eden is and always will be theirs. “Thee and thine, me and mine.” No one will come between them this time. And I mean no one.
This book has several triggers and should not be read by those who can’t handle dark triggers or smut. There is loads of murder and mayhem going on! The story is so dark and twisted that it takes a strong person to read it and appreciate where the author is coming from with this dark tale.
The story tells of a love so deep that it connects three souls together in a impenetrable bond. These three main characters are dependent on each other in many ways. Each person bringing their own strength to the relationship. Ian, the jokester but vulnerable one. Thatcher, the protector. And then there is Eden, the glue that holds them together. She contributes her strength and courage to the relationship.
Overall this story is a beautiful yet sick twisted read. There are some extremely disturbing moments, yet to get to the beauty of it all it is a journey that must be traveled. Not only is there a sick twist to this trio, there are some scenes of extreme abuse and horror. Ian and Thatcher have had a terrible childhood at the hands of a terrible father.
But the beauty to this story is the unconditional and undeniable love that they all have for one another. I was surprised by the story and shocked to the core. Yet this book turned out to be more than expected and a great story.
Again I highly caution readers on picking this book up. It has very dark scenes and terrible abuse. The heat level is a like a ten 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 as the trio burns up the pages, but they really are rough in their escapades, like BDSM level.
If you like smut reads and twisted dark stories, then this book is for you. If not please don’t read and review it poorly, because this was an outstanding read and I applaud the author for her creativity and wonderful writing.
