Absolution By Sloane Kennedy

So let me get this out of the way before we even get into the review. I am not a big fan of ménages in books. I will read them on occasions but I try to steer clear of them if I can help it. It is something about them thought that sucks me back and I end up reading at least one every two months. SO why don’t I really care for them? Ménages indicate that there are three people in the relationship. I have no problem if that is what people choose to do or if that is what an author chooses to write. However I feel it should be written correctly. One of the people in the relationship is always the odd man out. Someone always seems replaceable.

“I Need to know that if the worst happens, that I wont lose you”
I swallowed hard. I couldn’t fathom a life without Mace that didn’t include Cole. But I also couldn’t stomach a life without Mace either.

If two of them are together and another person comes in its like the one that was there before can be replaced or the new person is just a decoration. I just cant get into a book like that. I also don’t like the fact that in a lot of them all three of the people have to be there to have sex with one another like it is cheating to do it without one person. HELLO! we are all together you shouldn’t be jealous. So Now that I have ranted, LOL.

Heres the Blurb:

After four years abroad, artist Jonas Davenport has come home to start building his dream of owning his own art studio and gallery. But just as he’s ready to put the darkness of his past behind him forever, it comes roaring back with a vengeance.

The only thing keeping ex-cop Mace Calhoun from eating his own gun after an unthinkable loss is his role in an underground syndicate that seeks to get justice for the innocent by taking the lives of the guilty. Ending the life of the young artist who committed unspeakable crimes against the most vulnerable of victims should have been the easiest thing in the world. So why can’t he bring himself to pull the trigger?

After years of fighting in an endless, soul-sucking war, Navy SEAL Cole Bridgerton has come home to fight another battle – dealing with the discovery that the younger sister who ran away from home eight years earlier is lost to him forever. He needs answers and the only person who can give them to him is a young man struggling to put his life back together. But he never expected to feel something more for the haunted artist.

Cole and Mace. One lives by the rules, the other makes his own. One seeks justice through the law while the other seeks it with his gun. Two men, one light, one dark, will find themselves and each other when they’re forced to stand side by side to protect Jonas from an unseen evil that will stop at nothing to silence the young artist forever.

But each man’s scars run deep and even the strength of three may not be enough to save them…

So we have Mace the well sort of assassin for an underground company that kills the scum of the earth. He was sent to Kill Jonas because he is a kiddie rapist. The only problem is that Jonas is a artist and he is sweet and Mace is getting really close to him. Instead of just killing him he starts to work for him as a handyman to get to know him. He soon begins to wonder if Jonas is being set up.

During that time Cole the ex-military man who has a bit of PSTD comes to get answers about his sister from Jonas. He isn’t sure what is going to find once he gets there but he wasn’t barging on Mace and Jonas. Cole is sort of quiet and reserved if you will. A little to disciplined maybe because of the military. He is starting to become very confused because of the new feelings that he is having for not just one but two men.

So what’s good about this book? The characters are really well developed and I felt like I really got a lot of back story on each of the characters. that to me was good seeing as how it was a ménage erotica and a suspense. I also liked that I got to know secondary characters as well. I was set up well for the next book in the series. Yay! Bring on Ronan.

What I didn’t particularly like. Jonas. Ugh I hate when we have these characters that have to take the moral high road and force their partners to do the same thing. HEY! He isn’t you. You are not the same people you have different brains and opinions. It just bothers me. Anyway even with that I still gave it a 4 because it was good and the sex YES PLEASE! Until next Time!

Angst: Moderate
