Author: Lila Rose
Release Date: October 23, 2018
At forty, Lan Davis is looking for his damned picket fence and 2.5 kids. What he doesn’t expect is instead of a wife in the picture, his mind keeps conjuring up images of two men. One, his partner in the force, who is as straight as they came, the other an ex, who he’d hurt but never forgot.
After an incident leaves Lan injured, the two men rally around him… only maybe they shouldn’t have. It seems a medicated Lan is a truthful one.
Parker Wilding is pissed at the world. His anger builds when his partner refuses medical care after an attack. Instead, Lan entrusts his neighbour to take care of him—a guy Parker doesn’t trust. While he’s aware they share a history, when the past is revealed, the truth shocks the hell out of him.
Being emotionally crushed ten years ago, Easton Ravel hoped he would never have to see the man who broke him again. Hope is a fickle b*itch. And now he’s not sure how to handle being face-to-face with the man he once loved. Add in the mix the annoying, testy Parker, and Easton finds his limits are pushed.
Just not in the way he thought they would be.
What happens next sure does come out of the blue.
Holy Hell are Lan Davis, Parker Wilding, and Easton Ravel beyond HAWT when they’re together, and while it takes them a bit to all get on the same page and realize exactly what they want from one another, once all three of them go all in, the only thing that can prevent them from moving forward as a threesome is each others’ fears and insecurities.
It’s clear from the start of Out of the Blue that there is a lot more involved in a menage relationship than sexual logistics, especially when it comes to three strong, stubborn, and swoon worthy men, which means that any kind of relationship among them is going to take time and trust, and those aspects of their connection build slowly, at times, brutally so, but it’s important for them to do it right so that none of them doubt what the others feel.
Parker is the wild card out of the three men; his straight guy lifestyle is difficult to see past and his conflicted feelings only add to his torment. There is a lot of thought and soul searching that Parker goes through during the first half of the story, and I appreciate the fact that Lila Rose didn’t force Parker’s feelings or make him act on his desires until he could give himself to both Lan and Easton without giving them mixed signals and make this difficult situation impossible.
The fact that Lila Rose provides readers with Lan, Parker, and Easton’s perspectives allows readers to completely understand where all three men are coming from…what they fear…what frustrates them…how their past affects their present and perhaps even their future, and most importantly, how each of them feels about the situation they find themselves in and the nerves and doubts that sometimes consumes one or all of them.
There’s a lot to sort through in Out of the Blue, not only with the three main characters’ situation but also with the secondary storylines involved in the text, but each aspect of the plot flows seamlessly together, illustrating the connection to the Hawks as well as the other pivotal characters and events, and while I wished that readers were given a bit more insight into the development of Lan, Parker, and Easton’s bond, building a solid foundation that explores how integral each one is to their threesome, it’s still made clear that they are all on equal footing and the only way that it works is when they’re on the same page in terms of their wants and their needs.
Out of the Blue is one heck of a journey for three men who have a lot to overcome in order to be together and while their steamy scenes illustrate just how much they crave one another, the emotions brought forth in the book also play a pivotal role in proving that nothing can stop Lan, Parker, and Easton from being what they want to one another as long as they stand strong and disregard all of the naysayers because only they know that what they share is real, pure, and forever.
