Summary

Bennet James' world is imploding. 

His relationship with his best friend, lover, and longtime partner, Aiden, is falling apart because Bennet is no longer enough for him in bed. Their differences are getting the better of them, and, for the first time in eight years, Bennet doesn't see a path toward the future he's always hoped for.  

Aiden Hennessy is devastated. 

The night Bennet breaks off their relationship, Aiden's world crumbles at his feet. He's never envisioned a life that doesn't involve Bennet, and he doesn't know how to mend the divide between them, until the day he comes home early and walks in on something he thinks could be the answer to their problems.

Chris Wheeler doesn't do emotions. 

Three years after an unexpected and catastrophic loss, Chris has mastered the art of keeping men at arm's length. Casual flings and one-night stands have become his standard. But one night everything changes when he's propositioned in a parking lot by a copper-haired bartender and his dejected lover.  

Aiden, Chris, and Bennet tumble into a complicated strings-free relationship that leads them right into more heartbreak and tragedy. Admitting their feelings and finding a way to heal their wounds together is the only way for them to see if love can still come after all they’ve survived.

Content advisory: The characters in this book are involved in a menage relationship. There are elements of kink, including but not limited to role playing, breath play, and rough consensual sex.

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the 3 narrators (so far), I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening, but not more then twice a year.
it's like a B

love it!

Aiden and Bennet have known each other since childhood. They were each other's first kiss- first everything. And their love is true and everlasting. But as they grew older and discovered their sexual appetites and needs, issues started to appear. Aiden needs things Bennet can not deliver.
They break up romantically but they still love each other. When Aiden stumbles upon Bennet's  solitary exploration of a new kink, a thought occurs to him - can a third added to our relationship, save us?  At first Bennet resists the idea but for a chance to be with the love of his life again, he will try anything.
Enter Chris. He likes to take control of his "pets".  He meets Aiden and then Bennet. He agrees to their proposition, his hard limit is No Kissing him allowed. He doesn't want to settle down and fall in love... He just wants to play.... it's just sex.
Chris lost his lover years ago in a tragic accident. And he hasn't kissed anyone since. But will Aiden and Bennet be the ones to show Chris how to love again? Or will it remain just sex? And will adding a third save Aiden and Bennet? Or destroy them even further?

Well written book with an emotional grab... scenes that range from sweet to sad, hot and sexy to tear invoking. The characters are intriguing and make you want to wrap them in your arms or sometimes smack them and ask them what they are thinking. Definitely a recommended book.

fantastic narration!

Love Comes After

Bennett and Aiden are best friends and lovers. They are compatible everywhere except the bedroom, but that one incompatibility is tearing them apart..
Then Aiden meets Chris. I usually love everything about Kenneth Obi's narration but to be honest I struggled with his voice for Chris.
Aiden and Bennett invite Chris into their bedroom and things heat up from there..
Can these men all get what they need from each other?
Will Chris want to stay with the established couple or will he tear them apart??

it was okay

This was a sweet story FILLED with steaminess and kink. A little bit of age play which isn't my thing but it's not intense here so didn't bother me much. Good narration. I was hoping I would like it more than I did, but I still enjoyed it some. Good story but seemed to drag out for me.

Another wonderful story in the series

I love this story. Kate adds a little kink to it, some BDSM and daddy kink. Can two friends find what's missing in their love life? They can and do when they find Chris. Chris turns out to be just want they have been missing and they turn out to be just what Chris needs too.
Narrator Kenneth Obi does a fabulous job.

The book is perfection

I loved the story, this is one of my favorite from Kate, but the audio wasn't as perfect as I imagined.
I loved Chris's voice but Aiden and Bennet was not as good as the one in my head for them.
I liked listening to it, but I missed the hotness from the voices. It was just one audio from the thousands and i'm sad a little because the ebook, the story, the characters... everything perfect, but the audio is only 4 star.
But Chris's voice OMG perfect!

Awesome

Another great add to the series and audio!!! Bennet, Aiden and Chris was a epic couple with a fantastic story that grabbed me. Kenneth Obi's narration fit these three perfectly, each with their own stand out voice. Add in side characters flowing well between then and each chapter tone fitting the story and I can't wait for the next.

Aidan, Bennet, and Chris

This book is in my Top 5 list of MMM romances. This story kept me glued to my Kindle and I didn’t want to put it down for anything; including sneak reading at the movies on date night. So when I heard this series was coming to audio, I was anxiously awaiting it's release. This book was my first read of this author, and she hooked me in and has broken me in the best ways since. But I digress! The story! The wonderful story of Aidan, Bennet and Chris. Aidan and Bennet have been together since they were kids. Unfortunately as they’ve gotten older, their preferences in bed just don’t mesh, but neither can imagine being without the other. Until Aidan meets Chris one night while working in a bar. Aidan comes up with a crazy idea to bring a third person to solve their compatibility issues. Can everyone keep this “just benefits”, or can Chris be the answer that both Aidan and Bennet need to keep their relationship intact and fulfilled in bed. The emotional roller coaster their story takes you on is the best kind, and just when you don't think you can feel anymore for these characters, there is more! I could not recommend this book, this series, or this author more!
