Stuart has no regrets about his new life with Brandon and Jeff. For the first time, he feels he's exactly where he's supposed to be, with a family who loves him for who he is. Even despite the craziness with Brandon's ex, it's all worth it.
Jeff knows this is for life with the two men and has never felt happier. When a mission to help his sister's friend leads to an unexpected health crisis with an uncertain outcome, he is forced to admit he's also vulnerable in ways he never imagined, both physically and emotionally.
Brandon gets that his ex has issues, but he won't let those stand in the way of him and his husbands parenting Emma, his teenaged daughter. Jeff and Stuart have proven they're there for life.
Now their sanity is stretched to the max in ways they never imagined by a horrific truth—they're raising a teenaged daughter who's starting to date.
Note: This is a direct sequel to Heartache Spoken Here.

When life throws curve balls, a person can be beaten to death by trying to stand up against the balls or they could bend and roll with the punches. This story follows Heartache Spoken Here and should be read only after reading it. Just reading these two books in the series together will be fine.
What happens after the happily ever after ending? Ms. Dalton explores this when we return to the threesome, Stuart, Brandon and Jeff. There is continued craziness with Bradon's ex. More specifically, craziness with his ex's husband. Whilst there is a little bit of angst with Stuart and his family, the focus is on Jeff.
There is a reason why there is a saying, "no good deed goes unpunished". Jeff goes to help out his sister's friend who is terrified of her husband. In a weekend, the woman moves out of her home, like a thief in the night. Jeff is there to help move her. This is where he is bitten by a seemingly inconsequential bug. Unfortunately for him, this bug is a carrier and ends up destroying Jeff's life as he knows it.
There are several threads going on in this story, and I'm going focus on Jeff's story. This is because I have had several friends who have been impacted with this same disease. There is no rhyme or reason to how a person responds to catching this potentially incurable disease. What this sickness does is take a toll on a person and may crush their spirit completely. Ms. Dalton does an excellent job of showing how a person can suffer depression and doubts after catching it. Seeing it from Jeff's perspective may help educate readers to be more emphatic to people suffering from non visible physical ailments. Not all disabilities manifest physically for people to see. This one is especially tricky with how it drains the life out of its victim.
Whilst this story could be a bit of a downer, there is one character who steals the show. Grace is a character I want to keep my eye on. She's adorable and deadly. She is a mini Tilly in training and I can't wait to see if she gets her own story when she grows older. I love her.
This kinky romance is recommended to menage readers who like to see what happens after "happily ever after".
