A second chance is only the beginning...
Stella fled home at seventeen with a broken heart, an unplanned pregnancy, and a vow never to look back. Twenty years later, she has a career she enjoys and a solid relationship with the child she placed for open adoption. When that child goes in search of her birth father and calls for assistance, Stella is forced to return to her hometown and face the men who broke her heart, one of whom fathered her child.
Gavin and Holden raised a lot of hell as teenagers. They broke the law, broke their mother's hearts, and almost broke each other before they finally got their act together. Through all the ups and downs, they stuck by each other and managed to build a happy life together. The one thing they couldn’t do was forget the woman they’d loved and lost.
Forced to face the past and each other after so many years is no small feat. The trio does their best to make amends and put the past behind them while forging new bonds. Old feelings are rekindled and new emotions emerge from the ashes of their youthful indiscretions. Something remarkable could be on the horizon if they’re strong enough to navigate the pitfalls of a triad relationship and stand strong against the outside forces conspiring to bring them to their knees.
Circling Back is a second chance love story with a twist, as it involves three people not two. A lot of you will know that I love MMF ménage romances, so I was really looking forward to this book and it didn't disappoint. It is full of love and emotion and it also has some very steamy moments. The storyline is interesting and it flowed well. The characters were well rounded and their emotions felt real to me. It took me a couple of chapters to connect with and like the heroine, but I fell in love with the two heroes straight away. This is a sexy, enjoyable book and I would definitely read more from this author in the future.
When she was just seventeen Stella fled from her hometown with a broken heart and a baby on the way. She put her baby up for adoption, but remained involved in her life. Twenty years later Stella's daughter wants to find her father so Stella is forced to face the two men who broke her heart. Gavin and Holden are understandably shocked to discover that one of them fathered a child, and they are angry about missing so much of their daughter's life. Can they forgive Stella? And now they are older and wiser, can the three of them live happily together as a trio?
Initially I found it hard to forgive Stella for not giving the guys a chance to know that they had a child, but we discover that she had her reasons and of course she was very young. Gavin and Holden are just adorable and their relationship together was both sweet and hot - and it got even hotter when Stella rejoined them. I enjoyed this book, it's a nice easy read with a good balance of plot to sexy times. Four stars.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
