Jonathan is charmed by the sexy couple, and he quickly realizes that what started as a fling has the potential to be a whole lot more.
Gavin feels their connection just as strongly, but even after weeks of the three of them hanging out, he's afraid to suggest they turn their friends-with-benefits arrangement into a serious relationship.
The joy and shared experiences of the season have a way of making magic happen, if only all three men could find the courage to ask for what they want.
While I’m not one for open relationships on a personal level, reading about one can really hit the spot—particularly one that turns into something more when a couple finds a third who just fits with them perfectly. Gavin and Ace love each other, but sometimes just want a bit more outside of the two of them, either separately or by bringing in a third (Jonathan) to play. This story shows what happens when a third becomes more, and does it quite well.
I like all three men a lot individually—Gavin with his cute Christmas quirks, Ace with his kitchen skills and alpha personality, and Jonathan who is like a blend of them both. The three of them together physically…yeah, that’s one hell of a threesome and their sex scenes are scorching hot. Beyond the physical, the three men also seem to connect in everyday life as well. As almost always seems to be the case with stories that are of this length, I really wished this would have been longer so there could be more on-page relationship development. We’re more told that the relationship progressed rather than shown for the most part, and personally I prefer to be able to read through the evolution of their connection.
That said, this story was still a very satisfying read and is getting 4 stars from me. Thanks to the adult language and explicit sexual content, this book is meant strictly for readers 18+. With Three Under the Christmas Tree being set during the holiday season (spanning just before Thanksgiving and forward), fans of menage holiday books—or just menage books in general—will definitely want to pick this one up.
