Four Mercenaries Series
--- Bruised not broken. Loved. Always. ---
Clover’s life was perfect a year ago. He’d found four men to love, each essential to making him whole. Each one of them tough in their own way, part of a crew of mercenaries living on the wrong side of the law.
Tank was his loving Daddy, Pyro the wild one always pulling him into mischief, Boar taught him how to cook, and Drake showed him how to use knives in a wholly different fashion.
All Clover wanted was to finally be an equal in the group. So he trained, he pushed, and risked, but when real danger stared him in the face, he broke like a twig.
Now, with one of his lovers taken, Clover can’t find a way back to his former self. Each of the relationships they’d so meticulously built is fractured, and might never be the same.
If their group is to ever be whole again, Clover needs to find the courage he’s lost, but that means facing the monster who scarred him, and truths none of his men want to confront.
THEIR PROPERTY is a dark gay harem contemporary romance, book 3 in the “Four Mercenaries” trilogy. The story contains scenes of explicit violence, offensive language, morally ambiguous characters and lots of scorching hot, emotional, explicit scenes.

First off—if you’re just finding this series, this is book three and yes you need to read the series in order. There is a lot that happens in the first two books that keeps building up to what’s going on here in Their Property, and if you haven’t read the books one and two you’re going to be lost. Next, not going to lie…this third book of the trilogy was harder for me to read than the others. Not because of the subject matter (which is still along the same lines as what was in the other books), but because everything felt very much at loose ends for a lot of the book—or at least that’s how it felt to me.
The disconnect I felt was heavily due to the chaos within the group after what happened at the end of book two since the character that was taken was very much the heart of the group. Everything between the remaining four guys felt disjointed, which I know demonstrates the fact that he really is a central touchstone for them all, it just made it harder for me to read since the group’s rhythm was basically shattered.
Once past the halfway mark it did get better, but the tension among the group was still very much present a the healing process began, particularly since while that healing was going on there was more drama and loose ends to take care of. A lot of the story was very angsty, and that in addition to the dark subject matter peppered in (human trafficking, illegal fights of the most abhorrent kind) combined with the havoc created by their missing member is why this one was a harder read for me.
In the end though, everything seems to be resolved with all of the loose ends tied up. The guys don’t come out of it all unscathed—there’s no way they could have—and there’s room for more healing that they all need, but for the trilogy Their Property does have a satisfying conclusion. For me, overall this was a 3.5-star read, and please note that this entire series is strictly for readers 18+ for adult language, disturbing subject matter, sexual content including multiple partners/polyamory, and scenes of violence.
