These Men by Andrea Smith
Series: G-Man (Spin-off)
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This novella is a spin-off from the G-Men Series and can be read as a stand-alone.
Paige Matthews has a lot to learn – about everything, including herself. At age twenty-two, Paige finds herself driving across the country to start an internship with the F.B.I. in Quantico, Virginia.
You would think that Paige would be grateful to her older brother, Trace Matthews, a senior F.B.I. agent who pulled strings on her behalf to get her into the program, right?
Paige is not overly enthused at the realization that her parents have pushed her from the nest and onto her older brother’s plate for the time being. Always a loner, she quickly wears out her welcome with Trace and his wife Lindsey, due to her . . . need for random hook-ups, and finds herself crashing with her oldest brother, Easton, and his wife Darcy.
Through Darcy, Paige is introduced to her sister-in-law’s former roommate and bestie male friend, Eli Chambers, along with his sinfully handsome partner, Cain Maddox. They’re looking for a roommate and Paige is looking to get out from underneath her family’s watchful eye.
This is no typical “Three’s Company” story though. Paige embarks on a journey of self-discovery that teaches her not only about giving, but about accepting love as well. She soon realizes that sometimes what you’re searching for has been right there with you all along.
I’m a total sucker for a well-crafted Menage story…
“A threesome is an event,” he replied. “I’m looking for much more than that, Paige.”
Modern Erotic Romance is a wide world full of diverse sub-genres. There is something for everyone! No matter your kink, there’s an author who can satisfy your needs.
Some readers flock to Billionaires, Cowboys, Vampires, or Rockstars… Some readers dig on Happily-ever-Afters, dirty-talk, abductions, BDSM, Motorcycle gangs…
I’ll stop now, but you get the idea…
As you may already know, I am a Professional Reader of Erotica. I have read every kink imaginable and I am often asked “What is your favorite kind of Erotica?” and the answer has been the same for years.
MMF Erotic Romance is my jam.
MMF Romance: That’s two bisexual males and one female.
One Relationship, three hearts, three minds, three souls, and yes… One bed.

The sex is a huge draw for me (obviously) in these types of relationships, but it also brings out my favorite kind of angst and indecision.
Plus, it is a difficult scenario to write… and write well.
The reader has to LIKE all three of the parties involved.
If any of the three rub the reader the wrong way, we will immediately start hoping that the trio turns into a happy duo.
There are so many pieces of information which must come together to satisfy the reader’s desire to know that this (yes, I know it’s fictional) relationship, however uncommon, is built to last.
That’s a lot of suspension of disbelief. It is a hard enough thing to accomplish a believable love story between two parties…
But this is about THREE.
…and Andrea Smith took on the monumental task of accomplishing it in 140 pages.
My hat is off to Andrea Smith… I’d love to see what she can do with a full length novel & the MMF theme… And by that I mean:
Dear Andrea Smith,
Please may I have some more?
I read this book as part of the Bend Anthology which features some of the most talented authors currently working in Modern Romance.
