Happy Wednesday and welcome to my stop on the #MFRW Book Hooks Blog Hop. In honor of the holiday, I decided to share an angsty passage from book two in the Triple Passion Play series. Our three MCs are planning to come clean with Ken’s mother and Tommy’s parents about their unique relationship over Thanksgiving dinner. Enjoy, and then check out the limited-time sale on all the books in the series.
Three souls interlocking like Borromean rings. Remove one and everything and everyone will fall apart.
After Trisha Marks-Davidson won the hearts of two smoking hot men, she poured the last of her inheritance into their business, married one, and promised the other could be the father of her firstborn child. She’s torn between the love she can’t live without and internal fears and self-doubt.
Lifelong best friends, Tommy and Ken fell for the same women and each other (though neither is willing to admit his feelings). Jealousy and insecurity test the men’s friendship, and neither of them are coping well with their growing attraction to each other.
As the tensions flare and outside expectations rise, will love be enough to bind them all together or will they buckle under the pressure to conform?
CONTENT WARNING: The Power of Three contains blush-inducing love scenes, graphic language, and the positive portrayal of an alternative lifestyle, including M/M attraction and relations. If you are offended by alternative lifestyles, LGBT relationships, or descriptive, put-you-in-the-moment sexual language, you might want to look for a different book.
Book two in the Triple Passion Play series can be read as a stand-alone HEA story. No Cliffhangers and no cheating.
Having decided to tell his mom about his relationship with Trisha and Tommy after they ate, Ken spent most of Thanksgiving dinner with his stomach in knots. Luckily, Trisha kept the conversation flowing with non-controversial issues such as the drive up from San Antonio, the difference in the weather between the two areas, Ken’s mom’s stuffing recipe, and how much they loved each other’s hair. The chit chat only became strained when Ms. Davidson asked Trisha and Tommy how married life was treating them.
Idiot Tommy stuttered and stammered terribly and looked as if he might spill the beans in the most awkward way possible until Ken kicked him under the table. Trisha saved the day, simply stating she loved being married and was very happy.
“I appreciate you all coming to spend the holiday with me,” Ms. Davidson gushed. “Kenji’s never been very sentimental so I always wonder if I’ll be spending the holidays alone when he finally settles down and gets married.”
“I’m sure that will never happen.” Trisha patted Ms. Davidson’s hand.
“You two are too good to him, still looking after my boy even though you’re newlyweds. I hope he’s not butting in too much.”
Ken, Trisha, and Tommy shared a few tense glances during what seemed like a never-ending, uncomfortable silence. Ken’s face burned with heat and his hands dripped with sweat. He kept looking at Trisha to help but even she seemed at a loss. He stalled, taking a sip of his sweet tea and choking down the lump in his throat.
His mother patted his lips with her napkin. “Oh my, it seems I’ve hit on a bone of contention.”
Another lump started to form in Ken’s throat. He struggled to free the obstruction, coughing with his head turned and his fist up to his mouth.
“Kenji, honey, are you alright?”
“We’re sleeping together,” Ken blurted out.
Trisha gasped and Tommy nearly choked on his turkey. Trisha reached over and patted Tommy on his back waiting to make sure he coughed up what had stuck.
Ms. Davidson’s eyes widened and her jaw dropped. “Kenji?”
“Trisha and I are sleeping together.” Ken looked down at his plate rather than at his mom.
“Ken,” Trisha started but clammed up. Ken glanced up at her horrified expression and mouthed, “I’m sorry.” Trisha nodded.
“Kenji, that’s not funny.” Ms. Davidson smoothed her napkin in her lap over and over. “Tommy’s going to take you seriously and punch you.”
Ken huffed and puffed, nearly hyperventilating. He turned to look at his mom. “He knows. I’m sorry, Mom. I know this isn’t what you would…well, I’m sure it’s not how you imagined.”
Trisha covered her face with her hands, and Tommy burst out into tears like a damn baby. Ken sighed. You’ve got to be fucking kidding me.
“Kenji, this isn’t something you joke about. Please tell me you are kidding. You’re upsetting your friends.” His mother crumpled her napkin.
“They’re just embarrassed. It’s always been the three of us. From the very beginning, it was all three of us.” Ken exhaled after letting the secret out. The worse was likely yet to come, but Ken’s back felt one hundred percent less tense and his shoulders seemed lighter.
