Turkish Delights by Trina Lane

 Three very different men from three different countries look to build a love greater than any wonder of the world.

Project manager Garrett Sloan builds majestic hotels for the rich and famous around the world, but when it comes to love, all his relationships seem to crumble. His latest project lands him in Istanbul, where the desire he’s held for a certain French architect heats up under the Middle Eastern sun, and his resolve never to mix business with pleasure melts beneath the added hot stare and skilled hands of a Turkish mason.

The three men discover they want to build a relationship to stand the test of time. Much like Kyle LaFleure’s buildings and Emir Şahin’s stonework. As the bonds between Garrett and his partners grow stronger and more complex they work to lay the perfect foundation on which to build a lasting relationship. Can the three men construct a relationship that will endure? Or will their love reach its zenith when their shared task of finishing the ultimate Ottoman luxury hotel reaches it completion?
This story has three MC’s Garrett, Kyle and Emir. Garrett a Project Manager and his company is building a truly one of a kind hotel in Istanbul. Kyle is the architect on the project and Emir is the stone mason. Garrett has one stead fast rule; do not mix business with pleasure. But the more he works around Kyle and Emir, the more the three become friends the more that rule starts to get pushed to the background and passion and love take center stage.

This was a simple story. Not a lot of depth of feelings or getting to know characters, however saying that I found all three of these guys charming and sucked me in very quickly. All three are very devoted to each other and the relationship they are developing as a friendship first, and then a loving commented relationship. They are also devoted to this project and the descriptions we get of the hotel being designed and built; wow I would love to stay there. I did like the turmoil that we we’re given with Emir and his family.  Knowing that Emir and his family are from Turkey and religious, finding his son is gay, I’m glad it wasn’t glossed over. My only issue was the time line. Either I kept reading the lines wrong or we have an issue with it throughout the book.
