Publisher Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Summer comes a romantic comedy about an accidental relationship between three smitten men...and one commitment phobic woman. 

Elise Brandeis has never won a Pulitzer—and she never will. At least not while she's delivering sandwiches at the Gotham Times, instead of working there as an actual reporter. Her only shot at seeing her byline in print is to prove to the no nonsense managing editor that she has a nose for news. And she's got just the story to grab her elusive attention.

Right after she delivers this turkey on ciabatta.

Chasing down leads brings Elise to Roosevelt Island, but just when the trail of clues begins to take shape, she gets stuck. Literally. On a cable car with three strangers who couldn't be more different. An uptight rugby coach, a construction worker and a former adult film star she pretends not to recognize a little too well.

At first, Elise wants nothing more than to be rescued ASAP.

An hour later, everything has changed. By pure happenstance, four separate journeys have collided in an intense, meaningful way. Suddenly, disentangling their lives feels more impossible than winning that Pulitzer. Good thing Elise is too busy proving herself at work to consider three boyfriends. Nobody has time for that—even if they make giving in feel oh so right. But three heads are better than one and these loners will teach themselves to work together to win Elise over forever…

And more importantly, keep their dirty socks off her floor.

Fun & flirty - what Tessa does best

As to be expected from a Tessa Bailey book - this was a fun ride - sweet, spicy, and the perfect stress reliever for me during exam week.
This was my first time reading a why choose book so that was an interesting ride as well. Having Tessa Bailey's overprotective, funny and ...communicative... MMCs x3 was absolutely delightful. Overall a fun, quick read!

Tessa Bailey is a Treasure

“Something this perfect can’t be happenstance.”

I adore Tessa Bailey and I have this habit of tearing through her books in one sitting. I will say I was a bit nervous going into this one as I’d never read a reverse harem before and I didn’t know what to expect. Needless to say, I really enjoyed it.

Elise is such an interesting protagonist who has this habit of trying to take the easy route instead of putting in the work and paying her dues. It extends to her trying to become a reporter while she’s pushing a sandwich cart through the newsroom. Her life is upended when she’s stuck in a team car with three men that she has an electric connection with.

What I think I really enjoyed about this was that, while seemingly unconventional, they four of them really connect on a deep level and it’s clear that they care about each other. They develop into a family and they all have something the other needs, which is really beautiful.

It was so easy to get sucked into this because the tension between all of them jumps right of the page. Every part of their relationship feels real; they realize early that they have to figure out the logistical dynamics of their relationship. But they also all realize that they don’t want to let any part of it go. The men can come off a bit overprotective at times, but I do think the changes in perspective help and getting their first-person views pulls the relationship together.

I definitely understand this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I really enjoyed it! If it’s up your alley, I recommend adding it to your TBR!

Special thanks to the author for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
