Time passes and life moves on, but when Charlie learns the only two men he's ever loved are now in love with each other, his heart breaks all over again. Scott and Adan tell Charlie they want him back, but Charlie doesn't know if he can trust two people who have hurt him so deeply. Time might not heal all wounds, but with two motivated and strong-willed men on a campaign to win him back, Charlie will get more than he ever thought possible.

    Dancer Charlie loved twice in his live. The first was his neighbor as a teenager, kind, gorgeous jock Scott, who moved away to go to college. Later he fell for the prickly, over-confident Adan, who was ashamed of Charlie's effeminate manner. Suddenly, the two men Charlie loved show up at his doorstep, now themselves a couple, and they want him back.I have to say, this is not quite what I expected. I like triangle relationship books a lot, but this was different, since it started out with each of the couples separately, so it's 30% Scott/Charlie, 30% Adan/Chase and only the rest is Charlie/Scott/Adan together.I liked the style a lot. Charlies scrapbook storytelling kind of way is engaging and I enjoyed Charlies voice in general, the snark and fun in it. I just wish they'd actually included the pictures Charlie describes. That would have been the icing on the cake.I did not like Adan a lot, especially in the beginning, which seems to be a problem for a lot of people. Though I have to say, I mostly found him weirdly stupid. Rather detached from the world, I mean, not intellectually sub-par. The stereotyping and assholeyness I could deal with, mostly.But my major problem is, that I just did not get into the triad relationship. I thought it was not build very realistically or even very entertaining. The whole getting together part stretches over 6 month, which makes sense, I just felt we where not shown the good bits. There was really not a lot of communication going on, I thought, or it was simply off-screen. Scott and Adan felt a bit pushy at times and often I wasn't really sure what the exact configuration of their relationship was right now. Because they don't really speak about expectations and wishes and organization on page, so it feels weird. It was just too easy, I guess. Without having talked about it before, when they see Charlie again, they are immediately "Yes, want!". No insecurities, no talking about it? Really?I get that the book in it's entirety is rather on the fairy tale scale of sweet/sappy, but I just felt I needed a bit more anything to buy the whole concept. Could have been talks or meaningful moments together or something.Also, the kids where entirely prop, which I'm not too much of a fan of. They where around only when needed as a distraction, when all of the adults needed to have a talk, or sexy times, they where conveniently absent until the scene was finished.I still had fun and I thought the sex scenes where really quite well done and very hot, but I enjoyed the style more than the relationship content, so 3,5 stars, I guess.
