It could have been just an innocent crush. Something guiltless and fleeting. But Luke spends every day with Marcus; they talk, touch and dance together, they create and perform together. They know each other inside out. As a consequence, Luke has been in love with his very much taken choreographer for years. Seeing Marcus and his partner Liam together has become increasingly painful, and Luke needs to leave. His dancing career is nearing an end anyway. He will start university, reinvent himself, forget Marcus and find happiness elsewhere.
Except Marcus loves him back. And Liam knows. Liam’s dark eyes and his imposing silhouette begin haunting Luke’s dreams. Drowning in both lust and sadness, Luke is swept into a passionate triangle with two men who couldn’t be more different. Suddenly, instead of fear or caution, there’s just a mind-numbing desire for more.
I love Roe Horvat and everything that he writes, and Third One was just as scorching hot as I was hoping it would be.
Historically, I have a much harder time with poly romance books than romance books with only two people in a relationship, though some of my favorite books feature a poly romance. However, they tend to be the exception. While I thoroughly enjoyed Third One, the actual romance of it wasn't as strong for me as in the first two books in the series.
The sex was there and the book was nearly unputdownable but the love between Lucas and Liam in such a short span of time... ehhh.
I think this book will be a hit for most readers, and I loved reading it, but I enjoyed it more for the electric, raw sensuality than for the deep romantic connection. I think poly books are just much harder to pull off. And, to be frank, the first two books are some of my all-time favorites and are a very difficult act to follow.
Roe Horvat is one of my favorite authors, and if you loved The Other Book and Adam Only, you will enjoy this one too. Roe truly never lets me down.
