Covet by Yolande Kleinn

Jack Mason—graphic designer and unrepentant player—has never been interested in monogamy. He certainly isn’t looking for romance when he meets Professor Colin Sloan.

Newly single and not looking for anything serious, Colin is intrigued by Jack’s offer of a physical affair with no strings attached. Becoming friends wasn’t part of the plan, but as accidents go, this one’s pretty great.

Peter Mason is Jack’s identical twin. In a long-term relationship himself, Peter tells no one that he’s falling for his brother’s newest favorite, even as the secret creates tension with his girlfriend.

When Peter’s relationship falls apart, he seduces Colin, fully expecting Jack to forgive his transgression. But Jack is keeping secrets too—he hasn't told even Colin that he’s fallen in love. Suddenly the twins are feuding, and Colin is caught in the middle, blindsided by the revelation that he doesn’t want to choose between them.

Now all three must find a way to share, or they’ll tear each other apart.

3.5 stars

I don't really know how to put into words how I feel about this book. I liked it, but I didn't love it. I wanted more, but I am not sure what "more" I wanted. I just didn't feel satisfied. Colin had his cake and ate it too, he had two hot twins coming after him and he really liked them both, actually ending up loving both. The sex was hot, with Colin and both men, and all three when they were together. I just felt like something was missing. They never really all three sat down and talked things out. They did it two on two, but never the three of them and to me that just seemed off. And what was with that epilogue? That just seemed odd too. Ugh, I liked the book but didn't love it is about all I can say.

I'm not sure that I completely bought the idea of twins Jack and Peter, sharing Colin. I didn't think this could actually work in the long run. Especially since Jack met Colin and had a relationship developing with him first. Jack meets Colin and they start loosely dating. Colin is just out of a long-term relationship and Jack is looking for anything but a boyfriend, but the two agree to casual terms. Hanging out with Jack, Colin finds himself friends with Jack's twin, Peter. These two strike up an easy friendship themselves. Jack finds himself quite possessive of Colin when they're out and other men are trying to hit on Colin, so Jack has deeper feelings than he's letting on. Peter is in a straight relationship but has tended towards bi on occasion. He finds himself very attracted to his twin's "friends with benefits" Colin. Not realizing his brother actually has more than easy feelings for Colin, Peter ends up following through on his attraction to Colin after things with his girlfriend fall apart. The twins end up not speaking to each other for months at a time over this betrayal. In my opinion, I didn't think this could be overcome in a real world situation. But this isn't real world and the author puts the three men back together in a relationship that seems to work. I have to admit, the threesome certainly had the heat to keep me reading. Peter being quite dominant and bossy, Jack being at his command, as well as Colin loving the two taking control. This chemistry turned my “head shaking, non-buying this story” self into a “head nodding, yes, yes, keep reading” kind of book.

I did find the book a bit slow moving with mundane filler clogging up the actual story. Could have actually flowed better with half the pages. Not even sure Peter's girlfriend, Maureen, was a needed character at all. Three stars for decent steamy scenes.

Yolande Kleinn may be a shameless dreamer and a stubborn optimist, but she is also a proud purveyor of erotic romance. Excitable, fastidious, and a little eclectic, she spends every spare moment as far away from reality as possible.

A Minnesotan by both heart and geography, Yolande has plenty of experience weathering tough winters. Her favorite method: distracting herself with warm beverages and even warmer stories. A night spent with a good book is heaven. A morning free to write, with a hot cup of coffee close at hand, is even better.
