The Hot Floor by Josephine Myles

Two plus one equals scorching hot fun.

Dumped by his boyfriend and reduced to living in a grotty bedsit, Josh Carpenter has gotten used to expecting the worst. Now he lives only for his job as a glassblower…and occasional glimpses of his sexy downstairs neighbors, Rai Nakamura and Evan Truman.

Every time he overhears the diminutive academic and the hunky plumber having loud and obviously kinky sex, Josh is overwhelmed with lust…and a longing for a fraction of what they have.

To his amazement, Rai and Evan find his embarrassing tendency to blush utterly charming, and the three men grow closer over the course of the long, hot summer. Despite Rai’s charming flirtation and Evan’s smoldering gaze, Josh is determined never to break his new friends’ loving bonds.

On the night a naked Josh falls—quite literally—into the middle of one of Rai and Evan’s marathon sex sessions, the force of their mutual attraction takes control. But just as Josh dares to hope, he senses a change. Leaving him to wonder if the winds of love are about to blow his way at last…or if history is about to repeat itself.

Warning: Contains one well-endowed stud with a sexy accent, one improbably toppy bottom boy with an unfortunate owl obsession, and one blushing naïf who can’t believe his luck. Also, the occasional indulgence in mathematical spanking and some shameless armpit sex.

This book was recommended to me by a close friend, and so of course I couldn’t pass up reading it! I do have to say that I was a bit excited to read it since one of the main characters, Josh, was a glass blower. You don’t really read a lot of books about glass blowers, so I was really excited to read about that part of the book.  And not only that, but it is also a male ménage story as well, another one of my book weaknesses. I had really high hopes about this book when I started it, unfortunately come the end of it, I felt as though it was rushed a bit.
Throughout the story we follow as Josh, Rai, and Evan embark on a new friendship turned relationship. I did really like how it wasn’t an instant thing; it slowly progressed to something more meaningful as the story went along. I did also enjoy how all 3 characters had completely different personalities, but somehow they all seemed to work together very well.
Now, onto what I was disappointed about… We find out that Josh has a fascination with BDSM, but with him being the submissive. That wasn’t really talked about at all until the very end of the book. I was hoping that there was going to be more brought up about him taking that role and be able to follow along with what he really thought as it was happening. I felt like the ending was very rushed as well. I believe that is because the rest of the story didn’t move slowly, but it progressed at a nice easy pace, but the ending was just very crammed into a few pages.
It’s because of those reasons that I’m rating the book the way that I did. I do hope that at some point the author will write another book about these characters because I did enjoy them. And I will be sure to check out something else from her in the future.
