2.5 stars. And I am going to be nice and round it up because I didn't hate the story but it was not good.This book tried to be too much in way too little space. This is how this story plays out: the first 50% of this novella is about 90% telling. You get told these guys back story. These guys don't exchange a word as a trio until 55% into the story. That's utterly ridiculous considering you are trying to sell readers a ménage! So then what happens? The guys have a case of sudden verbal diarrhea [...]
This book just had too much going on in too little pages. A jaded porn star, another porn star hiding who he really is from his ultra-religous family back home, a guy down on his luck, who lost his job, and is about to be evicted because his roommate ran off with all the rent money, a mob boss, a loan shark determined to squeeze money out of someone who didn't even BORROW any money, and it's just too much for only 89 pages.I also felt like the one big three way sex scene felt like it was ripped [...]
I have read many author's attempt to write threesome scenes in a novel. Every single place I have read threesome, it was weird. It is as if the author felt too weird about it, but wants to write it anyway. This book was different from ALL those books. That is why I am giving it a 5 star. The other reason is that I liked how the debt problem a character had was solved.
Part of Evan Gilbert Greatest HitsAll the stories in this book are novellas, different and great reads. Just good entertainment that you can finish in an afternoon, then start the next one if you're ready.I thought this would be my least favorite because of the porn star angle but it didn't interfere with the story and there was a lot of other stuff going on (plus a hot menage)!

A Joyfully Jay review. 4.25 starsThe blurb on this one promised an interesting premise, and I have to say that, for the most part, the book delivered. There’s a lot packed into the short space, and almost all of it works well for the story. I was drawn in from the very beginning and didn’t put it down until I was finished. And though I have a few small quibbles, overall I really enjoyed it.I thought the author did a really great job with developing all three characters. It could have gotten [...]
Dallas is the consummate “bottom”, and has played that role for years, turning it from a role in porn to owning his own successful studio. His life is good, but he’s lonely – he just doesn’t realize it yet.Johnny is living life well. He’s in school, has a bright future, making money doing something he loves – playing the hard-assed “top” for Dallas’ studio. But – he’s had a crush on Dallas for years and though Dallas plays a bottom in every role he’s ever done – he’ [...]
FiveStarsThis was an interesting book for me. I just read a pretty heavy book emotionally and this one started out the same way, but it ended up taking me on a great journey of the coming together of three very different men who are at very different and difficult times in their lives. I really liked the way that each of them was needed in the relationship to make it work for all of them and the resolution of Miguel's little problem was actually a little funny. I liked the way it all worked back [...]
I suppose it's unfair to take off a star for all the descriptions of sex in this story. Graphic sex is expected in this genre, but it's something I don't have to have. The sex acts don't really add anything to the story for me, so I kind of just skim over them. And I had to do a lot a skimming on this one because two of the three main characters are porn actors.But I like this author's writing, and he usually comes up with interesting characters, and that's what drew me into this story. Dallas, [...]

I really loved all three characters in this short story. From the start, Dallas was my favourite; I loved the steely power behind the twink facade. The author imbues the graphic detail in his porn scenes with a sense of humour and a touch of realism while the connection between his three leads is sweetly emotional. Organised crime and family rejection are pretty hefty subjects for such a short story. In a full length novel, there would have been space to fully work through the problems the men f [...]
Too much story for the little amount of pages!Ugh and I was not feeling the Ménage.Johnny and his "issue" with only topping and no bottoming(on camera)??The reason is:For if his family finds out he’s doing gay porn.*ugh Like his family is gonna watch gay porn and then say oh thank god he’s only pitching and not receiving hmm yeah right!!(wtf?? I rolled my eyes it sounded like bullshit to me))If I was a gay man I would totally be versatile just saying….
More of a 2.5 but rounding up. Lots going in this novella. I did like the MCs, particularly Johnny. His realization and acceptance about who he was after his interaction with his father seemed real. I also liked Dallas and jaded porn star view. And Miguel, poor lost guy. Liked the three of them together but wish it had happened earlier in the book.
3.5 stars! I liked it! literarynook/review-lisas-
