THREE TO TANGO was like a breath of fresh air to me. The perfect blend of realism and fantasy, it was a sensual feast that I could have dined on forever.
I had such a great time reading this story that I was so sad to see it end. I think if I had known I would devour it so quickly, I may have slowed down a bit to make it last it bit longer! It boasts a time-honored plot--friends to lovers--but has a menage twist.
Melody and Jace are BFF's. He's gay, she's straight. She's had an unrequited crush on him for years, but she's finally come to terms with the fact that they will never be more than best friends. Enter Alec, their new and very hot roommate. He fits in perfectly with the pair, and they are both halfway in love with him. So, what are friends to do when they lust for the same man...why, bet each other, of course. And when it comes to light that Alex wants both Melody and Jace, well, then the real fun begins.
I also enjoyed the dialogue between the characters, it was funny, witty, and I could just imagine three friends having the same type of back and forth banter. The book was co-authored by Chloe Cole and L.C. Chase, and I could sense that having the two authors writing this story, lent to that aspect of the dialogue.
Now, with all these "not just friendly" feelings coming to light in the story, I'm sure you can imagine that sexual tension was in abundance, and you would be right. The sensual by-play between the characters made me more than a little hot under the collar. And their sexual chemistry was off the charts. When they finally all came together, I think it was obvious that their menage was meant to be.
But, it wasn't easy falling into bed together. There was a lot of self-doubt and scared feelings especially when faced with the possibility of ruining a good friendship and a great living relationship. I think that the authors illustrating that lent to the realism of the overall story.
My only complaint about the whole story is that it ended too soon! What happened next? I would have loved to see how things played out with the trio on the morning after so to speak.
But overall, it was a fantastic contemporary menage, with a believable plot, engaging dialogue, and extremely erotic love scenes. I loved every minute of reading it and was truly sad to see it end.
