I love ménage romances as much as the next girl...maybe even more. But what we don't usually get to see after the HEA are the real life problems that come with being in any relationship, not to mention a triad. That's one of the things that kept me glued to COWBOY LOVE IN PERIL the most. The insertion of real life into the story not only made me want to see how things ended but made me care deeply for the characters.
It's been a couple of years and now Wade, Brandon and Kimber have two children, two ranches, and whole lot of problems. Wade and Brandon can't seem to address their attraction and love for each other without Kimber between them, which puts pressure on Kimber that she doesn't need with two babies to take care of. Kimber is feeling the strain of the threesome's unconventional relationship in a way that causes her doubts that their ménage is the best thing for their kids. And Brandon gets news that he and his family's life may be in danger because of a threat he thought he dealt with two years ago.
So it's not all rosy in the Gardener-Reed household, and if changes don't come soon, their relationship, and not to mention their lives, could be in serious danger.
As stated before, in COWBOY LOVE IN PERIL, real life started to creep into the happy threesome's world--nosy townspeople, insecurities and frustrations all seemed to show up. And while that drew me in, it wasn't the only thing I loved about this story.
Luxie Ryder has a way of turning up the steam until you are hot under the collar. The intense sexual attraction between Wade and Brandon was just as hot as was the men with Kimber. And the utter hotness which was their threesome definitely had me begging for more.
There was also an intriguing plot that kept the excitement high and had my nerves rattling. My only complaint is that I thought the suspense/action part of plot should have been fleshed out more to add some more meat to the story.
It should be noted that COWBOY LOVE IN PERIL is the second book in the Love the Cowboy Way series. You don't have to read the first book to understand this one, but I think it would be nice if you knew the background to how Wade, Brandon and Kimber got together.
So, overall, I thought this was a solid read. I give it a strong 4 stars and I hope that there will be more left to the story because I've really enjoyed this series so far.
