I’ve always been on my own. My life used to consist of nothing but work, keeping Allen out of trouble, and if I had time, sleep. Then I became their maid.
Every day more than half a million people tune in to watch my show. They trust me. I know it’s because I’m the only son of the prominent Emerson family. However, I like to believe it because I’m honest no matter what story I report on. I’m honest about everything but the man I’ve been f**king for the last four years… and now her.
First I want three things: First Maxwell Emerson and Jane Chapman both in my bed. Second, to be the best bloody chef in the country. Third, to figure out how to simultaneously get the first and second things I want without any of us getting hurt.
ONE LOVE STORY….
I am a huge fan of JJ McAvoy’s writing style and very creative stories so when I saw that she was writing a new book but under the pen name of Amelia LeFay, I decided to check it out the synopsis. I do read M/M from time to time and the thing I loved most about them is the emotion that is between the main characters. I have also read a couple of books that had the M/M/F scenario and did enjoy it so knowing I already loved this author’s amazing storytelling, I knew I had to pick this one up to review.
Max comes from a well know family that is in politics as well the fact he is a well-known reporter who wants to try his hand a politics one day. So letting the world know that he is bi-sexual and that he has been in a relationship with well-known top chef Wesley Uhler, is not an option. The moment Wes and Max meet Jane Chapman, their new maid, they are taken with her and make her a proposal for her to join their relationship.
I must say I was really excited to check this one out. Although I have not read anything written under this pen name, I love everything I have read by the author. Her stories are fresh and different and always pull me in immediately. Sadly though, this one just did not work for me for several reasons. First, I found the storyline that pulled Jane fully into a relationship with Max & Wes very rushed giving it a feel of things between the three of them being more about attraction and sex than actual feelings of love. Second, which I was kind of shocked about, I actually found the storyline to be very flat and lack depth, which has never happened before with this author. The story was more about the sex. I do love a good erotica story but it can’t be all sex, I need a good storyline and with this one I found myself getting tired of the sex and skimming through those scenes. Third I found that the author had a lot drama going on. There was the drama with Jane and her former boss at the night club, the drama of Max’s breaking story on the governor, the drama of Max’s secret and his parents on top of just the whole storyline of the three of them coming together and figuring it all out. But out of all of these, none really kept me engage and they all fell really flat for me. Last, as stated earlier, the one thing I love with M/M is the level of emotion between the main characters that we don’t always see with a M/F romance. Even though max and Wes have been together for 4 years, I only felt attraction between them, I struggled to feel anything more.
Overall this was just an okay read. I wanted so much more from the characters and the storyline. This book is the first installment in this two book series and it does end in a small cliff hanger but I didn’t find it to be jaw dropping or leaving me say OMG and WTF.
About The Author
Amelia LeFay is a character of my own imagination. She’s a single woman in her mid twenties in love with sex. Dirty sex, rough sex, sex of any type. She’s not a whore or a slut. She believes a woman should be aloud to sexually express herself anyway she wishes.
She stands for Gay Rights, Women’s Rights, the rights of Minorities, and Environmental protection.
She can be a bitch but doesn’t think there is anything wrong with that.
She has uneven boobs, stretch marks on her ass, astigmatism, and thighs that rub together as she walks. (Which means no pair of jeans last as long as she wishes they would.)
But most importantly Amelia is a Dreamer…she has dreams so big it scares even her, because if she fails…if she can’t make it…she feels like nothing.
