#Throwback: Take What You Want

Mega rock star, Alex “Zander” Metcalf is burned out after nearly two years touring with his band, as well as emotionally drained after his sexual preferences were exposed by the media. He is ready for a long sabbatical – alone, and retreats to the east coast island of Martha's Vineyard; leasing an oceanside estate.

Alex seeks the quiet lifestyle of a recluse to write new material for his band, only to meet the handsome estate manager, Chase, and his gorgeous fiancée, Danni, living in the guest house on his property. Alex's hope of solitude is soon forgotten when he discovers Chase has a repressed bi-sexual side that is aching to surface and Alex is more than happy to help him explore it.

What neither Alex or Chase expects is the emotional power of their chemistry expanding to involve the three of them when Danni becomes entangled in their passion. Alex believes he has finally found his perfect menage relationship with Chase and Danni.

Sometimes two isn't enough and it takes three to complete the union of a fulfilled love. But, will their new relationship be strong enough to survive when real life wants to punish them for their unconventional love? And, can they be confident in the strength of their love to take the 'happily ever after' they can only give each other?

I absolutely love a story with a strong alpha male. This one had two and WOWZA! It was amazing! Zander is a Rock God and bi. Chase is engaged to Danni and madly in love with her. They have a very spicy sex life and have even invited her friend to play. When Danni walk in on Chase watching mm porn, she doesn’t know what to think. She encourages him to explore his feelings while she is away.

Zander is a Rock Star, but in real life he likes to go by Alex. Alex has been hurt by both men and women and is looking for a chance to relax. He rents the main house of the property that Chase manages and sparks instantly fly between the two men.

Alex helps Chase explore his attraction to men, but neither of them expected to fall for the other. Where does that leave Danni? Chase wants both of them and suggests they enter into a Tri, like the one Alex was in before he got hurt.

I won’t give the ending away, but the chemistry between Alex and Chase could steam up my Kindle screen! Chase and Danni were equally intense, as were the three of them. I will say that my only issue with this story was Danni. She encouraged Chase to explore his feelings and then got mad when he did. Her “issues” were all over the place and irritated me. I love the HEA ending, but did not like the character of Danni at all!
