Book Review: Reward of Three by Kelly Jamieson

Reward of Three

Title: Reward of Three (Rule of Three #3)
Author: Kelly Jamieson
Genre: Erotica
Length: 135 pages
Rating: 4 stars

Synopsis
Sometimes the darkest nights produce the brightest stars.
When the pregnancy test turns positive, Kassidy, Dag and Chris are thrilled they’re going to be parents at last. Their polyamorous relationship has blossomed, and there’s more than enough love to go around for their long-awaited little “Belly Bean”.

Then reality sets in. Dag grew up without a father. Does that mean he’s too damaged to be a good role model? Kassidy is at a critical point in her career, working long hours on a high-profile project. And Chris gets a disappointing—but not exactly unexpected—reaction when he contacts his parents with the news.

As worry nibbles at the edges of their happiness, fate is poised to tear it to shreds, leaving a loving foundation three years in the making cracking under the weight of grief and guilt. And the trio in the fight of their lives to repair their unconventional bonds.

Warning: Our sexy threesome is back for their happy ending. Keep extra tissues on hand for tears, a fan on standby for hot sex, and a post-it note to remind you to take a deep breath. It’s time to find out if the juice is really worth the squeeze.

My Review
In this final installment of the trilogy, our threesome have some drastic changes in their lives, both happy and sad.  Like the previous two books, the nightly passion between Kassidy, Chris and Dag is as hot as ever.

Having them both inside her like this, joined so closely, was dirty and hot and sweet. She felt like she was in the center of the sun, burning up, surrounded by heat and light and going up in flames. Hotter. Higher.

What surprised me about this book (clearly I didn’t read the synopsis) was the emotional weight of it.  Without giving anything away, I didn’t expect the heartache, fighting and tears.  I guess it was bound to happen, it was just so sad to see the reasons to cause it.  Despite being a very nontraditional couple, they haven’t had as many problems one would expect.  Their friends welcomed their lifestyle choices with no judgment and even had the support of Kassidy’s parents.  True, Chris and his parents remained estranged, but I don’t think that could be unexpected.

When tragedy strikes, Kassidy, Chris and Dag each make a series of mistakes that only deepen the pain the others are experiencing. Those mistakes aren’t intentional, and are only meant to help deal with their own emotions, but the actions cause a series of additional problems.  There are feelings of abandonment and doubt in the relationship.  Rumors at work only add fuel to the fire.

I was shaking my head at time during these moments, knowing that their actions would come back to bite them.  The lack of communication from the group was sad but understandable.  While Kassidy thought she wanted to deal with things privately, she really needed an outlet to speak freely and let her emotions out.

While heartache and coping were a big focus of the book, there is healing.  And what’s the best kind of healing?  Sexual healing.  Awww, yeah!

She loved it when it felt like they were both fucking her, one of them inside her, the other inside the other man. It was so good for all of them, and she loved being face to face with both of them at the same time.

Being the last book of the trilogy, we get our HEA, with some new beginnings and healed relationships.  What better way to say goodbye to this loving group!

Side note: It’s worth noting that the author, like myself, is a big time hockey supporter.  For Hawks fans, they were winning last time the score was announced in the book. ; )

*An ARC was received from the publisher for an honest review.

EXCERPT

“What should we name her?” she asked.
Chris and Dag both laughed. “Her?” they said.
She grinned. “It could be a girl.”
“You want a girl, babe?” Dag laid his palm on her stomach.
“I’m supposed to say I just want a healthy baby, but I kind of do want a little girl.”
“A little girl would be awesome.”
“But I really do just want a healthy baby,” she added. “Boys can be fun too, and since he’ll have two
dads, I won’t have to worry that I don’t know how to entertain him.”
“We’ll take him to strip clubs,” Dag said. “And teach him how to shoot tequila.”
Kassidy giggled and gave him a little punch. “Right.”
“Hey,” he said. “Those are important things in a man’s life. Along with hookers, fast cars and
guns.”
Kassidy stared at him in horror. “Hookers?” Her forehead tightened. “You’ve never gone to a hooker,
have you?”
“Fuck no. I’m kidding, babe. About the guns too. Fast cars, maybe not.”
“Oh. For a minute there I was having second thoughts about this.”
Dag nuzzled her neck and Chris laughed. “You know he’s full of shit.”
“November.” Dag sighed. “That’s not far.”
“About nine months,” Kassidy said, trying not to smile, and earned herself a tickle.
“Can we have sex?” Chris asked.
“Right this minute?”
His lips twitched. “I meant for the next nine months.”
“Christ,” Dag said. “Please say yes.”
“God yes,” Kassidy said. “But even if we couldn’t, you two still could with each other. Major benefit
of a poly relationship. However, I’ve already Googled it and learned all about sex while pregnant.
Apparently there’s increased blood flow to your pelvic area during pregnancy, which can make your
genitals swell and heighten sexual sensation.”
Dag blanched. “My genitals are gonna swell?”
Kassidy giggled. “I certainly hope so. But no more than usual. Come on, follow along here. My
genitals may swell.”
“Christ,” Chris said.
“However, some women report they can’t orgasm as easily.”
“We’ll just have to try harder,” Dag vowed.
“Thank you,” she said demurely. “I appreciate that. Apparently, many couples find they feel more
pleasure from foreplay, oral sex or masturbation than intercourse. So lots of foreplay would be
good.”
The two guys gave each other evil grins.
“Assuming I don’t have morning sickness,” she continued. “Because barfing during sex is not, well,
sexy.”
“Uh…no.”
“But it’s supposedly important to keep some level of intimacy going throughout pregnancy, to keep
the relationship healthy but also to prevent sexual problems after the baby is born.”
Chris frowned. “Why would we have sexual problems after the baby is born?”
“Possibly because after I give birth I will not want you to touch me ever again.”
Both guys’ jaws dropped.
“Kidding! Sort of. Seriously, it might take a while after the baby’s born before I’m ready to have
sex again—with one man, never mind two! You two could get antsy. But then again, you have each
other, which takes some pressure off me.” She beamed at them. “This is going to work out great. Not
only that—three of us to take turns with diapers and middle of the night feedings.”
“Diapers. Ugh.” The corners of Dag’s mouth turned down.
“You’ll be changing your fair share,” Kassidy said with a little smack to his shoulder. “Don’t even think
otherwise.”
He groaned, but she caught the soft look in his eyes.
“I’m scared too,” she whispered. “This is a big deal, you guys.”
“Babe.” Dag curled his hand around the back of her neck. “You’re amazing. You’re gonna be a great
mom. The best. Love you so much.”
“I love you too, Kass.” Chris nuzzled her ear. “He’s right. And we’re right here with you all the
way.”
“Th-thanks.” She swallowed. She didn’t feel much different. Her breasts were a little tender, like
around the time of her period. Luckily she didn’t feel sick at all. She hoped that continued.
“Speaking of sex…” Dag rose and pulled her by one hand to stand. “Let’s go celebrate.”

Book Review: Rule of Three by Kelly Jamieson

Quickie collage 2

Rule of three

Title: Rule of Three (Rule of Three #1)
Author: Kelly Jamieson
Genre: Erotica
Length: 253 pages
Rating: 4.5 stars

Side note: This book is not new, it actually came out in 2012.  It has been on my kindle for awhile, and with the release of book 3 in July, I thought now was as good a time as any to get started.

Before you start this book, you’ll either need this:
rabbit
or this:
Colin
on standby. Yes, after seeing Colin’s sex tape, I feel we have this unbreakable connection.  LOL

Anywho, on to the review. I’m making this quick, so pay attention.

Chris and Kassidy are in love.
Chris and Dag are best friends, who previously dabbled in threesomes together.
Dag has feelings for Chris.
Kassidy develops feelings for Dag.
Will Chris reciprocate Dag’s feelings?  Will Dag reciprocate Kassidy’s feelings?

What starts our as one fun night, turns into a night after night affair. There are a lot, and I do mean a lot of blowjobs in this book.  Along with Eiffel-towering (I think that’s the missionary position of the ménage world), rimming, DP, etc.

“I’ll do your ass. Dag’s too big for your first time.”

Even though this book is told in the third person, the author does a great job of describing the feelings and emotions of the main characters.

She left her body, she didn’t know where she went, but she floated and throbbed and soared on sensation.

Was he a sick, twisted perv? He’d never questioned the urges that had led him and Dag to do what they’d done. He’d just enjoyed it, reveled in it, took as much pleasure from it as he could get. But for the first time he wondered what drove him to do this.

While I spent a good part of my read fanning myself and my kindle (poor kindle, it doesn’t know what hit it), I was surprised at the level of character development in the book. These three, while driven by lust, where smart and thoughtful. They cared about one another, and as they come to be drawn to each other for more than sex, the direction of their relationship is tested. They are forced to challenge societies expected norms. Can you love two people equally? Can a threesome thrive out of the bedroom?

This book is part one of the trilogy. Next up, Rhythm of Three, where hopefully we learn the answers to the last two questions. Until next week (when I’ll post the review), happy humping.
