Writing Her In by Holley Trent

There’s room in a heart for more than one kind of love.

Dara and Adrien Valliere are soul mates and best friends… but they’re not lovers. Their marriage may be unconventional, but it’s satisfying and loving, and they’ve never needed anything or anyone else.

Until they met writer Stacia Leonard.

Stacia built a career on maintaining close ties with her fictional characters while keeping everyone else at arm’s length. She avoids intimacy, apart from a few one-night stands when the loneliness and need become too much. But when Adrien Valliere, her cover model and long-distance friend, invites her for drinks, she’s too fascinated to refuse.

Dara recognizes the physical attraction between her husband and Stacia and sees it for what it is: an opportunity to help Adrien get what he needs. Dara can breathe easy knowing that both she and her husband are happy.

Before long, though, it’s clear that Stacia’s connection isn’t just with Adrien… She and Dara have something special, and it’s something neither of them can—or want to—deny.

This is a seriously steamy read! It’s the story of an author who agrees to hook-up with the handsome cover model for her most popular series. It would be a simple story, except the cover model is married, his wife encourages the hook-up – and there’s also a whole lot of chemistry between the author and her cover model’s wife. Whew. It’s all a bit complicated but I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters.

I enjoyed the women in this story more than the men. Stacia is a successful author but her personal life is a bit messy. After a messy break-up, Stacia enjoys no strings hook-ups and an otherwise solitary life. I love her strength, her humour, and her warmth. Dara is equally solitary – as an artist she works alone, and past experiences have made her feel quite socially awkward. She’s also pretty sure she’s asexual. These two women complement each other beautifully and I love the way Dara grows into her sexuality in this story. Adrien doesn’t feel quite as fully fleshed as the two women he cares for. He’s physically gorgeous but a little bit blander than Dara and Stacia.

I love well written polyamory and this is a really beautiful story about three people who try a more unconventional relationship after realising that their more normalised relationships just aren’t meeting their needs. At times, this is a crazy, sexy book – the scenes between Dara and Stacia are electric and there is wonderful chemistry between all three. The tone of this book is light and I love that there is very little angst in the story.
