SUMMARY
I wasn't looking to fall for one man. Let alone two...

Sullivan and Will are as close as two friends can be. Growing up in the system forced them to rely on each other, and they've become accustomed to sharing everything—including women.

Now they're ready for more. To find love. To start a family. To see the dreams they've shared since childhood come true.

Apparently I tick off every box on their list—brains, beauty, and sass. I never hesitate to put both men in their places—which they find sexy as hell.

One problem, I'm a traditional girl, with traditional values—one man, one woman, till death do us part—kind of values.

They're willing to work to prove how very right the three of us could be, but what happens next is anyone's guess...

When Adrienne rear-ended Sullivan, she had no clue how that one moment would change her life. Adrienne quickly finds out that Sullivan and his BFF Will share everything, including women. Hesitant at first, the sexy men convince her to give them a chance to show her how good it can be between the three of them. And it is…for awhile…until real life starts to interfere with their relationship. Can the conservative Adrienne finally go all in with Sullivan and Will, or will their budding ménage be over before it even begins?

I always build up ménage storylines up in my mind because they're my favorite and they're relatively tough to find. So I always go in excited and hopeful, but so often I'm disappointed. BEDFELLOWS ran hot and cold for me. It started off pretty rough, with lots of mistakes and questionable chemistry, but once Ms. Leighton hit her stride, the book improved a good deal. The connection between Sullivan and Will was excellent, but it took awhile for Adrienne's character to really gel with the men. I was frustrated at how easily she got angry with her guys though, and the whole Thanksgiving fiasco (and subsequent resolution), along with the multiple additional conflicts, made me scowl. But the real sketchy thing for me was when the men discovered their attraction to each other, which is usually my favorite part of a ménage story. It was like their whole focus changed to one another. Witness:

If I could have suspended time and stayed here for all of eternity, I would have.

and

"Like I said, I couldn't risk losing you. My silence ensured our future, man, and I'd rather share you with a woman than not have you at all."

Not cool, man. The small redemptions were the MM interactions and the cover (but even that didn't make sense since there was just one dude). Overall, I'm just not in love with BEDFELLOWS, but it wasn't the worst ménage I've ever read either.

Bottom Line: MM and MFM sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
