Blurb:
Sometimes two isn’t enough for a happily ever after.

Shifters Roy Cocker and Bill Soreno have been together for years but they’d never become mates. Roy had not been able to fully commit to forever when a part of his heart belonged to a man he’d once left behind in San Francisco.

Now that man, Adrian Marlow, shows up in Harrington Hills unexpectedly and their world gets thrown out of whack. Roy can’t go through losing Adrian a second time, Bill’s instincts are sending him mixed signals—and Adrian? Adrian doesn’t want to get his heart broken again.

But can he really leave Harrington Hills behind after only one day? Or is there a way for the three of them to right the old wrongs, heal each other’s wounds and become something more?

3✨s – I’ve enjoyed the Harrington Hills series. This one isn’t my favorite, but the books are easy reads with a combination of low angst, family drama, and romance set in a contemporary shifter world. If you haven’t read the previous books, you could start here as series characters don’t play a prominent role, but you’ll get more from reading them in order.

Roy and Bill have been together forever, they have no intention of not being together, everyone knows them together…and only Roy knows why they haven’t fully mated (committed). Years ago, Roy met and fell in love with Adrian while in San Francisco, and then left him behind because, again, he would never leave Bill. This walks that line of emotional cheating and the effect on their relationship is lingering, though they intend to stick it out no matter what.

Now Adrian is passing through Harrington Hills to help a shifter friend, hoping to get in and out before any confrontation with Roy. That doesn’t happen. They come face to face in short order and are discovered by Bill moments after that in an explosive confrontation until Taylor (the Alpha’s son) intervenes. This prompts a boardroom discussion where Taylor demands an explanation for why his shifters are making a scene in the town. It’s all very uncomfortable, especially for Adrian, and through very little interaction at all Bill and Adrian start reacting to one another.

I get the fated mate thing, I do. It’s why I read shifter books, but there is no foundation here for a triad relationship. Adrian only stays in town because he nearly gets run over right after the meeting, prompting Bill to save him. The next time they are all together is because Roy visits a recovering Adrian to propose a threesome—without first discussing it with Bill. Adrian calls him on this but doesn’t say no and together they go to see Bill who, of course, immediately thinks Roy is leaving him. Oh no, they swear, they want a threesome, and he agrees.

There was no getting to know one another, no relationship building with Adrian at all—whereas Bill and Roy are a fully established couple with a long history. All they have is the mate bond and Roy hoping to get everything he wants. The epilogue is promising, but without seeing it all unfold, you have to accept it on faith and I didn’t have it with these three.

Author Bio:
Megan is one of those people who dreamed of being a writer since they were a little kid and then didn’t do anything about it for years. Then as a teenager she was introduced to fandom and… well. She fell head first into it and never looked back. At some point she decided to try writing her own characters in her own stories. And that’s where she is today.

When she’s not writing, Megan works as a psychologist and continues to learn the hard way that she can’t give all her clients their happy ending (she truly believes everyone can save themselves, though). That’s why she makes sure to give it to her characters, always.

She loves TV shows, books, fanworks and pizza (not necessarily in that order). But there’s nothing like getting messages from readers who enjoy her stories, so if you’re not sure it’s okay to contact her—yes, it is.
