Title: Fevered Hearts
Author: Em Petrova
Publisher: Samhain
Release Date: March 31, 2015


When faced with a challenge, it’s best to pool your resources.

Liam Mattson used to play his wife’s body like a fine violin. Until a logging accident dampened his fine motor skills and rendered his legs—and the most important part of his below-the-waist playground—useless.

If only Liam would throw himself into therapy with the same vigor he used to throw her into bed, Ivy is sure he’d fully recover. But lately she’s felt adrift, while he’s stuck in self-pity and pre-occupation with a serious threat to his logging business.

When Ward Bose returns from the backwoods, Liam isn’t blind to the heated, guilty glances between his best friend and his wife. And he takes a step he never could have taken if his legs were working—ask Ward to service Ivy in bed.

The moment the three come together, Ward’s heartstrings are tied in knots, and Liam holds them in his fist. But secrets they’re each keeping could tear them all apart…unless they can find a way to share their burdens as easily as they share their love.

Warning: Men who wield big saws know how to care of business—in bed and out.


I am a big fan of MMF ménage romances, and this is one of the best books I've read in this genre.  Fevered Hearts is a tale of love, lust, courage and overcoming adversity. As a wheelchair user myself I was pleasantly surprised and found it a refreshing change to find that one of the heroes was disabled, as most heroes in this type of book are fit and healthy.  This is the first book I've read by Em Petrova, but it won't be the last as I absolutely loved this book.  The story flowed well, the characters were likable and convincing, and the storyline was realistic - which is often hard to achieve in a ménage romance.

Liam was seriously injured in a logging accident one year ago which left him paralysed from the waist down.  He has not coped well with this and has refused all therapy that could help him walk again.  He is in a deep depression, and has shut everyone out.  He can't be intimate with his wife Ivy, and barely even talks to her.  They still love each other, but their marriage is in danger.

Enter Ward.  Ward is Liam's former lover and was devastated when Liam cruelly rejected him.  He returns to town and is instantly attracted to his sister's friend Ivy.  He later finds out that she is Liam's wife and about Liam's accident.  He wants to help his friend, but is shocked when Liam suggests he sleeps with his wife and gives her the pleasure that he can't.

I love all three characters, and felt connected with them all.  The love and emotion between them all was amazing, and it was great to watch them all falling in love and how they pulled together to overcome obstacles in their path.  The love scenes were hot and sexy, as well as touching and emotional.  Seeing Liam beginning to believe in himself again was heartwarming.  

There was also a great suspense element to this story, which was exciting and interesting.  Threats put Ivy and their businesses in danger, and it was fascinating to watch this story unfold.

This is a fabulous book, it drew me in right from the start.  I wholeheartedly recommend it and give it five stars.
