They have accepted the situation. Stewart, because his life is too busy for the sort of obligations that are required in a relationship. Paul, because he loves me too much to tell me no. And because my sexual appetite is such that one man has trouble keeping up.
So we exist, two parallel relationships, each running their own course, with no need for intersection or conflict. It works for us, for them, and for me. I don't expect it to be a long-term situation. I know there is an expiration date on the easy perfection of our lives. I should have paid more attention, should have looked around and noticed the woman who watched it all. She sat in the background and waited, tried to figure me out. Saw my two relationships, the love between us, and the moment that it all fell apart.
She hates me. I don't even know she exists.
She loves them. I love them.
And they love me.
Everything else hangs in the balance.

Love triangle with a twist
Alessandra Torre is wonderful at giving us imperfect scenarios reminding us that to be human is to be flawed. Maddison is gorgeous and sexy and easy going, but it's her understated insecurities that make her so relatable. Of course the two men in her life are HAWWWWT, but so different from one another that we don't really see the twist coming until it's upon us.
I did have one problem with this audiobook (which I admittedly listened to in one "sitting" while performing tasks of varying complexity throughout the day!)... I found there wasn't a big enough distinction when Dana started speaking, which made me go back to the ebook and sort out where the second female POV fit in. If I'd been concentrating better I'm sure this wouldn't have been an issue!! Even with my momentary confusion this is still a 5 star listen.

I really enjoyed this book and the twists along the way. I was doing this one Whispersync so have to admit that it was easier to read than to listen to. The narrator was ok, but she used the same voice for all the characters so I was confused if I missed the beginning of a short chapter that was the story of a different character. This book would be improved by using multiple narrators, which I don't always like. I like the way the author creates something different, a bit twisted, and lets us make discoveries along the way. I felt that way with her other books that I have read or listened to: Black Lies, and The Girl in 6E. Lots of slutty sex so I would advise those who don't like that kind of stuff to stay away from this book. I thought it was good and enjoyed it very much.

Captivating and Intense
Imagine being in a relationship with two different men who know the other man exists. That is the scenario that Madison has found herself in, living with Paul and at Stewart's beckon call. How the author comes up with these plot lines boggles my mind.
A complex story, filled with plenty of passion, intense emotional feeling, and begs a tough question - if each man holds your heart, how do you choose...how can you choose?
"The heart is stubborn. It holds onto love despite what sense and emotion tells it. And it is often, in the battle of those three, the most brilliant of all."
I liked the story, but it wasn't my favorite from this author. Still glad I read it though.
