Reeve Jenkins is an amateur musician playing in a dive bar. Grant McGuire is a man drowning his sorrows in beer after a painful breakup. When Reeve charms a reluctant Grant into coming home with him, they begin a three-year friendship with some very nice benefits.
But when the two gorgeous men walk into Hawk Point Tavern—the bar Rachael Bradford owns—one evening and greet each other with a kiss, it sets off a chain of events that leads to a steamy night and maybe something more for the trio.
Sweet isn't the first word that often comes to mind when reading a ménage novella but that's exactly what you get with Three Shots. Don't get me wrong, this story is hot as hell with both M/M and M/M/F scenes but it's also sweet, funny, well it's just plain beautiful. Reeve and Grant have an insta-connection that is clear and real even if they walk out afterwards as only friends with benefits. Then they meet Rachel and it's pretty obvious that none of their lives will be the same, the connection is there from the minute their eyes meet. What first is completely sexual and steamy becomes more and considering Three Shots is classified as a novella, the outcome is believable and not rushed at all.
I loved how Reeve and Grant being bisexual is addressed when the three of them sit down to get to know each other. Rachel has questions, she asks them, she gets answers with honesty and respect all of which is done without the author teaching a lesson or stressing an agenda. Three Shots is entertaining that will bring a smile to your face, warmth to your heart, leave you breathless, and personally, I'm hoping that we'll see where Reeve, Grant, and Rachel again to find out where they are in the future.
Not that I'm surprised but Brigham Vaughn has done it again she has yet to leave me disappointed. I just love it when one of my few automatic 1-click authors prove my faith in their storytelling abilities and that is exactly what she has done with Three Shots.
