My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published May 1st 2017 by Entangled Publishing LLC

Jack and Dean love each other, but they’re missing the woman to complete their triangle. When newly divorced Paige Richards buys a Bed and Breakfast on Hamlet Island and employs them to help her fix the inn up, Jack and Dean are sure they’ve found the one they’ve been looking for. Despite the playful, sexy clues they drop, luscious Paige is reticent about getting involved, even when they set the stage so she can stumble on them in action. They can tell by her responses she wants to join them, but rumors travel fast on the small island, and tales of a threesome could get back to the conservative, family vacation crowd who won’t patronize those with an alternative lifestyle. And the last thing they want for Paige is the B&B’s rooms…and her bank account…to remain empty. But Jack and Dean will stop at nothing to prove to Paige that she can have it all…with them.

Jamie K. Schmidt has got a new fan!
There are so many reasons I enjoyed this as much as I did.

Reason #1:  It's pretty short and a quick read. I finished it in four days but probably could have done it in two. I love that there's a full complex story but it's not overdone.

Reason #2: It gets to the point! None of this "Will they or won't they." We already know they will; so why dance around too long? 

Reason #3: Did I mention it gets to the point? There's no long work around of reasons of why they shouldn't.

Actually there are quite a few reasons of why they shouldn't, and they make for some pretty interesting "oh crap!" plot twists which is also what makes it pretty fun. But they don't really let those things get in the way; because, again, in the end we know they'll work out.

Reason #4: I can't stand romances with prolonged problems that can easily be resolved if the characters would just talk to each other or with broken 'unlovable' characters. This has neither.
These characters know what they want and get it.

Reason #5: I'd like to think that my enjoying it so much is reason enough.

It's hot, it's fun, it left me wanting more and I will most definitely be reading more by the author.
