Menage on 34th Street is short and very powerful story.
Kat and Liam have been married for 10 years. Right before they got married their friend, Hunter, left for the Marines. 10 years ago he turned down an offer to be with them. Now he’s back and Liam and Kat want Hunter in their lives.
Liam and Kat obviously have a strong relationship. It’s open and they communicate well. But things come to a head when Kat finds out something Liam kept from her 10 years ago.
Hunter throws a whole new mix into things. Not just because he’s going to be the third in the relationship, but he’s a Marine. A career Marine. It’s everything to him. Being in this unconventional relationship could jeopardize everything.
This story has some amazing smexy scenes. Limits are pushed, boundaries are tested and they get down and dirty. We get all combinations possible in this story with the three of them. There’s not any stone left unturned.
But on top of the hot smexy scenes we have some emotional turmoil. One of the things I really liked about this story was Elise Logan and Emily Ryan-Davis’ ability to put so much into such a short story. Not only did she pack a lot into this story she dealt with the very difficult problems that come when adding a another person into a relationship. It’s not just adjusting to each other when there are three involved, it’s adding in the stigma of a non-traditional relationship. We also have the added stress of Hunter being a Marine. That throws a whole new set of variables to be dealt with.
Elise dealt with these problems very matter of factly in the story. There wasn’t any glossing over of potential problems. While we are left with a happy ending it’s not necessarily a HEA. However, I’m more than happy with the HFN we have.
I’m so intrigued with this trio that I’m really hoping we get another story about Liam, Kat and Hunter.
