I loved him first. Jake was my best friend in college-my straight best friend, until one night he was more. He may have ran after what happened between us, but I never forgot him. When fate puts us in the same place, five years later, he has a fiance by his side. Carina is beautiful, driven, and draws my attention almost as much as he still does. A game of truth or dare leads to a wild night and a relationship that has our feelings growing into something bigger than any of us intended. But what happens when our feelings deepen? Can I handle being with two people? If it means I can have him, I’ll love them both.

This review will contain all the spoilers possible. This review is mainly for those of you who already read this book or for those of you who don’t mind knowing everything there is to know before starting reading it.

I’m pissed!!! I’m heartbroken! I hated it! I’m pulling my hair!
I don’t even know how to start. I need to control my anger first.

Ok, so here’s the thing. We have an engaged to be married couple. Him and her. Best friends, who love each other, who work together. Their work brings them Jackson. Jackson used to be best friends in college with him.

Now, here are my issues with this story. Even if all of them are adults (thirty something year olds), they’re all confused as a bunch of kids, with their heads in the sand and not having the balls to own anything they feel or want.

Let’s start with the couple. They are about to get married, but they haven’t planned anything. Mostly, their families wants them together and it was sort of an “arranged marriage”. Their sex life is great, but they both feel like something is missing.

Enter Jackson. Jackson, who during a drunk night in college, after a game of truth and dare, had something with Jake, who freaked out in the morning and left for good. He says he’s not gay, but has super strong feelings for Jackson. Jackson says he’s bisexual, but if he was to pick, it was Jake and only Jake he wanted.
In my mind, when you say you’re bisexual, it means that you can’t chose. You love being with both men and women. Right?

Jake and Carina bring Jackson into their relationship. Carina’s fantasy is watching both men together. My problem with all this is that everyone is using the other people in the trio. Carina is using Jackson for fulling her fantasy, Jackson is using them to fullfil his need of being as close as he can be to Jake and Jake is using Carina as a buffer, to hide his true feelings for Jackson. Enter my heart breaking to pieces. I mean, what the fuck is this shit? In the end, all of them are hurting – Jackson the most, just because they couldn’t be honest to each other.

I forgot to highlight some parts to better explain my range, but this review is long enough already.
So yes, I’m pissed that this wasn’t a fairytale and three people made a huge mess of their lives, hurting each other in the process and breaking my heart too.
I hate “confused” characters, I hate liars and cheaters! Omg, i just remember! On top of everything, Jake and Jackson cheated on Carina! 😡

I would love to chat with anyone who loved this book and get a different opinion about all this. 🙂
