Rock star Nate Keller is on top of the world, but his headlining tour has one drawback. It keeps him away from his boyfriends, Theo and Cameron, for weeks at a time. Yet after four-and-a-half years—and a lot of hard work—the trio is still going strong.
But then Cam comes to visit with devastating news. After seventeen years together, he and Theo have agreed to a trial separation. Nate tries desperately to fix his lovers’ broken relationship, but there’s only so much he can do from the road.
At home, Cam tries to carry on, but feels like his whole life is spiraling out of control. Theo struggles to cope with the split as his depression worsens. They’re both spinning their wheels, quickly losing hope they can keep it together—and keep the man they both still love.
Desperate, Nate drops everything in a last-ditch attempt to pull their trio back together before they hit rock bottom. Except their love could already be shattered beyond repair.
Cat gives this one 3 Meows with a 4 Purr heat index...
Theo and Cam have been married for seventeen years. Both men are very different. Cam is slightly OCD but over the years has gotten so serious in it that he has panic attacks.
Theo is suffering from severe depression and ignoring it. Both have kept their mental issues from the other until finally it has festered and exploded.
Nate is their third, and he is like the glue that binds them. Being on the road so far away he finds it hard to concentrate and wonders where things leave him if this Hiatus becomes permanent.
This story has so much potential. Particularly in the threesome department. Nate is a strong individual as well as part of Theo and Cam's relationship. Where the story slipped in this regard for me was it seemed as if he was a sex toy. Nearly every time he was mentioned or visited it turned into wild sex. It was hot , but I would have liked to seen more of Nate actually trying to pull Theo and Cam back together.
I really liked Theo and Cam. I liked that the author addressed two very strong , silent disabilities...Depression and anxiety with panic attacks. My only issue there was how could they live together so long and not notice this in each other especially Cam. It's hard to hide a full on panic attack, especially at the levels he had them.
All-in-all the writing is great. The story is angsty and hopeful, the characters appealing. I would have liked more conflict.
If you like broken men, threesomes, artists, bankers, masseurs, rockstars, angst, hope, and hot-man-sex, I think you will like this.

In between wondering how she didn't lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies.
She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don't tell Lauren. And definitely don't tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut...
