An Entertaining Town
3.5/5⭐️ rounded to 4. Three to Ride by Lexi Blake is the first book in the Nights in Bliss, Colorado series, which was originally published in 2010. This is a why choose cowboy romance/romantic suspense novel about Rachel Swift, a woman on the run from a stalker. Her car broke down driving into the town and due to the kindness of the residents of this quirky small town, Rachel found herself with a tow and repair from the local garage and a job at the local cafe. Nearly out of money, she decided to stay for a short time when she met Max Harper. She decided to indulge in a short fling with the sexy cowboy even after she discovered that he had an equally sexy twin who was the town Sheriff. Rachel distrusted law enforcement after her experiences trying to get help to stay safe from her stalker, but she soon discovered that Max’s twin brother, Ryan, was a really good man. She was riddled with guilt for feeling so attracted to her boyfriend’s brother. Ryan and Max Harper had always known that they wanted to share a wife, but after too many failed attempts to be more than a hot fling, they had decided to try to find happiness separately. When Rachel caught his eye, Max had already met her, and Ryan tried to control his jealousy and help Max navigate a relationship without him. Max was afraid that Rachel would never be willing to consider a relationship with both he and his brother and all three were struggling. Would they be able to find a way for all three to be happy or would their unconventional relationships or would they end up losing more than their hearts? I found the town of Bliss highly entertaining, filled with a variety of non-traditional residents including a colony of hairy nudists, a wealthy Dom, and the resident expert on aliens. This romantic suspense novel is filled with laughs, intensely hot chemistry, and a sweet story on the simpler side for this author. I was entertained, but it wasn’t my favorite book from her backlist. The narrator did a good job and it is definitely worth he listen. I am curious to see how the rest of the town residents receive their happily ever afters. I am voluntarily leaving this honest review after listening to an advanced complementary copy of this audiobook thanks to Valentine PR and DLZ Entertainment LLC.
Fun MFM story
Three to Ride is book 1 in the Nights in Bliss, Colorado series. This is a MFM, small town romance.
Max immediately felt a connection with Rachel; their chemistry was palpable and steamy. Rye also took a liking to her, but tried to keep his distance so that Max could find his happiness for once. I thought their jealous/possessive moments were entertaining. I enjoyed the banter, witty secondary characters and suspense. Their story was full of passion, strength and determination to survive.
Kitty Bang and Lee Samuels did a good job narrating this book.
4.5 stars for - Three To Ride - book one in the Nights in Bliss series by Lexi Blake (previously released as Sophie Oak, but book has been re-edited, containing additional chapters and new content). This is a MFM ménage romance with BDSM elements so reader discretion is advised. Bliss, Colorado is a beautiful place full of a bunch of strange people so in other words there is no better place to fit in if you are on the run.
Rachel Swift is on the run from a dangerous stalker when she finally catches a break in Bliss. She gets a job and starts to find her footing again even making a few friends in this strange little town. Among her new friends are a gorgeous pair of twin brothers that make her pulse race.
Identical twins - Max and Rye Tucker - have always known they wanted one woman to share between them but after one nasty woman left her mark on them both they decided to no longer share like they always planned on in the past. Then Rachel moving to Bliss and taking a liking to Max of all people seemed like it was a sign from a higher power and they would be a fool to ignore it.
This is a classic Lexi Blake book with tons of steamy romance woven with a mystery that keeps you guessing all the way through to the end. Then throw in the zany town characters and the promise of what's to come has me looking forward to all the Nights in Bliss.
