Psychologist Victor Mascari and his partner, spa-owner Derek Jameson, have been together eight years, but their relationship is still evolving. Derek distrusts monogamy because of his parents’ messy divorce, but as marriage equality advances, Victor’s doubts about their open relationship are growing. He doesn’t necessarily want a legal union, but he’s increasingly concerned about how others view them.
When Victor comes home to find Derek with another new conquest, he’s annoyed… at first. As he gets to know Antonio, Victor discovers the young man is intelligent, self-assured, and charming. This time, it’s Victor who is intrigued by someone else and Derek who thinks Victor’s interest is crossing the lines they’ve agreed on. If Victor wants to keep Derek, he’ll have to let Antonio go.
But Antonio is in real trouble and has nowhere to turn. Victor and Derek take him in, and it soon becomes clear how well he fits into their lives and how strong the bonds between all of them are growing. A committed relationship between three men—all very different in age and background—is enough of a challenge, and then the horrifying secrets of Antonio’s abusive past emerge.
Expanded Hearts is the first book I have read by Logan Meredith. Even without reading book 1, I decided to give it a try because I absolutely adore ménage stories that are more than a romp between the sheets. I need plot as I am sure most of you do. Whether it is a thrill chaser or a sweet romance I need some substance to the book besides the sexy scenes.
Victor and Derek are in an open relationship which I tend to stay away from in ménage stories as it always feels that one of the MC pushes the 3rd onto the other MC. At first I figured this would be the case but I was so happy that it wasn’t. Yes it starts out with Derek and Antonio but the pull that Victor feels towards Antonio makes it a wonderful story.
Once the story gets underway it is exceptional delightful. I love the interaction between the 3. Of course with a great story comes all the twist and turns that leave you wanting more and unable to put the book down.
Meredith does an exceptional & flawless job in keeping your attention. The story flows with perfection that will have you chomping at the bit. I really enjoyed the story – all the heartache, sadness, witty and fascinating dialogue.
Victor, Derek and Antonio stole my heart and gave me another fantastic story to read.
If you are like me and have never read this author – Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. You will not be disappointed.
