    First, let me start with the fact that this book is the best in the series so far, and these men are very close to Coulson and Seth as my faves. What I Loved: The Characters: - All the men were lovable and vulnerable, each in their way. I felt the difference of each character, their strength and weaknesses. Milan: The FLOTUS's brother and the president's best fried. A talented experienced Dom, and a man with buried feelings which need to come to the surface. #Uncover Asher: Secret Service Agent, Switch First, let me start with the fact that this book is the best in the series so far, and these men are very close to Coulson and Seth as my faves. What I Loved: The Characters: - All the men were lovable and vulnerable, each in their way. I felt the difference of each character, their strength and weaknesses. Milan: The FLOTUS's brother and the president's best fried. A talented experienced Dom, and a man with buried feelings which need to come to the surface. #Uncover Asher: Secret Service Agent, Switch who struggles to give away his control and has trust issues... #TrustUs Denali: White House staff, Submissive in desperate need of a Dom,,, or maybe two? #ILiveToServe 2. The Plot... The plot is ongoing from book 1: Who is behind the Pride Parade bombing, and other terrorist attacks and murders? There are many surprises that come up in this book. I love how it was spaced out. It wasn’t concentrated in one place in a way that could have been intense or overshadowed the romance. It was engaging, suspenseful and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I love the little clues, but never letting us have a sure thing. We also follow the three men as they learn to trust each other, follow their instincts and fall head first into a poly relationship. #RoomForMore The Relationship/Romance: - The pacing of the relationship was on point. Nothing felt rushed or insta-lovey. Maybe a little fast with Denali, but I think it’s true to his personality. - I loved how Ash and Milan’s history was brought to the relationship, to reinforce their love for each other, and to show how both of them were protecting themselves from the other. - Denali was the one with all the power in the relationship and that was refreshing. He was a sub through and through, but he was also the one who made the big bad Doms see what was right in front of them. The Plot: The Steam: Holy freaking hotness. This was the steamiest book in the series by far, but it never felt OTT for me. Each sex scene had a reason for being written -- to break down walls, to reassert roles, to highlight feelings... they were hot but important as well. #PantiesWentPoof I also loved the push-pull between Ash and Milan. They highlighted a switch’s fears perfectly. Angst-o-meter: Minimal angst between the MCs. #NiceAndEasy The Ending: HFN for our throuple ...happy and together. #MoreComing

    Smoking hot and full of feels 4.5* I knew who the devastating loss was going to be before I even began reading it, because they were the only 'expendable' character. However, I also appreciated that it wasn't a straight forward or simple approach and that the loss brought the investigation into the terrorist plotting another step forward. It was an interesting play to make for the series and I'm wondering if it's partly setting up a potential new romance option further down the line.

It was an interesting play to make for the series and I'm wondering if it's partly setting up a potential new romance option further down the line. I'm not sure how I'd feel about that, but I'm well happy with the relationship and romance I got in this book. Oh my lawd it was volcanic hot, lustful, powerfully engaging and did I mention hot yet?! A true triad with each one bringing something uniquely theirs and much needed to the romance. Denali was incredible, a submissive with a backbone of steel. And both Asher and Milan needed that strength. There's a double age gap, one between Denali and the other two, but also a smaller one between Asher and Milan. But, for me anyways, this doesn't feel like an age gap romance so much as a pure Dom/sub one. Asher fascinated me with his duality as a verse switch. Milan is full blown justified arrogance. He's an experienced Dom but utterly clueless about feelings. Seeing them navigate their way into each other's hearts is a real head rush. The over arcing narrative also moves on, with more interesting developments involving domestic angles. I'm pleased this is going down a less traditional pathway for the bad guys, although still not an out of left field one. It's a scary world at times and this storyline is sadly not at all beyond the realm of possibility. I'm thinking next up might be Kenn and his Tutor in a possible Daddy/boy or maybe little romance and I'm totally down for that!

    Love, love, love Nora Phoenix and the White House Men series, but this was probably my least favourite so far. Totally adored Milan and Asher and their dynamic, but wasn’t completely feeling the poly relationship with Denali too, and the change in Milan by the end. Still a solid 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read for me though 😍

    Oh dear, my least favourite of the series so far. The threesome felt forced as though it was just something to throw into the overall mix of the series as a whole, and to be perfectly honest, in view of what was actually going on in the story at the time, surely the last thing that an active secret service agent, a young waiter in the residence and an extremely experienced NYPD cop should've/would've been doing is getting down and dirty in one of the rooms of the White House?

And yes, I know it's fiction but... 3.25 stars from me, and once again, I've ignored the 5 star ARC reviews below. As far as the assassination/bombing narrative is concerned, we crept slowly forwards and a few more clues emerged. Unfortunately, we had the usual fare of wrong verb tenses, incorrect usage of words and yet another word that doesn't appear in my English dictionary...rewet 🤔. It's time Nora Phoenix and I called it quits I'm afraid. I won’t be finishing this series so stick a fork in me, I'm done.🙁

    Hmm.... Hmm... I don’t know about this. Not that I’m against MMM or poly. I’ve read many poly books but this one just didn’t feel very natural to me. Also, I did not like Milan very much. Not even at the end 😖 For me the best parts of this story was the overarching storyline that’s linked all these books together. I wanted to know THAT outcome more than I cared for Milan and his boys 🙊

While this relationship stands alone well, the series has an overarching suspense plot that requires reading from the beginning to best follow along with that aspect of the storyline. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Milan, Denali, and Asher. We have met both Asher and Milan in earlier books, and I found Milan, in particular, to be such an interesting character. He is definitely the hardest man of the three of them, and has kept himself at a distance from his partners for so many years that he has trouble even considering more for himself. These guys start off crazy hot for each other, and at first, it is Asher who feels a bit of the odd man out seeing the connection between Denali and Milan. But Asher and Denali are so much more open than Milan that they come to recognize and accept their feelings much sooner, and it takes more time for Milan to figure out and accept for himself that the three are meant to be together.

    2.5 stars. I love Nora Phoenix's writing and world-weaving, but maybe it's time to admit that this series is not really for me. The series has a fine balance between suspense and romance, and while the suspense plot becomes increasingly more intense, it becomes more and more entangled in the overall stories of each installment. Even in another book, I'm not sure I would have connected too much with the throuple anyways, because throuples and strict d/s relationship are not my jam (at the moment 2.5 stars.

Add to that, that the suspense/romance balance was perhaps tipped a little more towards suspense in this book, which has made it a book that took me relatively long to finish. I am still invested in the suspense plot, and I know of other pairings in the series that I would like to see have a happy ending, but this installments was not my favorite.

    Hot and emotional. Not the most believable one (the entire series is not) but I was engaged from start to finish and the triad and their dynamics worked for me. Same as in book 3 there were chapters from previous books MCs perspective. It was good for investigation plotline and I enjoyed glimpses into their happy love loves.

    Not as good as the rest of the series This may be my dislike of most kink, especially D/s where there is a lot of hurt/comfort, but I really felt like Nora forced Milan, Asher and Denali into relationship. Yes, it was alluded to the fact that Asher and Milan knew each other previously, but poor Denali is kind of shoe horned in there not making it very believable. Especially when they stated multiple times there would be issues if people found out about Milan and Denali.

Especially when they stated multiple times there would be issues if people found out about Milan and Denali. I didn't catch the setup for the next book's couple. Did that blow right by me? And what about poor Kennedy? Denali was supposed to be his friend, but when he enters into the threescore, he just drops him? I'm still committed to seeing the series through as the first three books have me officially hooked, but this one was not one of my favorites and I am hoping that Nora rebounds with book 5.

They are still dealing with the aftermath of the bombing and assassinations as well as murders and attempted murders in this one. There are moments of PTSD when memories of another tragic event happens and it’s an emotional story. All of these stories are emotional. They pull things out of you, you wouldn’t believe. The rage, the hurt, the laughter, the tears, it’s all there. You’re pulling for the main characters to make it through and find what all they need but seeing what they are dealing with is one of the hardest things to read. And although this story is mainly centered around Asher, Milan and Denali and their blooming relationship, it’s so much more than that. So much more. Things are starting to fall into place about everything from book 1, but it’s not over. Secrets are revealed that shouldn’t be, everyone is at a loss about how to handle some things, and all everyone feels is lost. But what I love about this story is no one gives up. They refuse. As heartbroken as they may feel, as betrayed or anything else, they refuse to give in to. They take small times to grieve or whatever they need, but they push and keep pushing forward because it doesn’t matter what it takes, they are going to find out what started this whole mess, who and why and they are going to make them pay. They are going to find the justice they seek, no matter what. And I love that resilience. I had a hard time with Milan at first because his aloofness and how he acts all cocky and stuff. In and out of the bedroom. But Denali had me from the start. And I love how Denali sees things that no one else has. Even those who have known him for years and years. Like Asher. Denali even made Asher realize things about himself. And Denali definitely has a submissive servant’s heart. And it’s as big as the sun. He wants to make everyone so happy. Whether it’s in his job or in the bedroom. He wants to know that he’s made a difference. And I love it. I love how he brings happiness wherever he goes and how his soul just manages to heal even the toughest of hearts. He is definitely my favorite in this story. Even the way he handled Kenn, it was everything that was needed. He just seems to know what is needed and when and I love that that’s all he needs to make him so happy. Someone who gets him and loves him for the way he is. This has been such a good series. It’s not over. They still haven’t found the people responsible for everything that’s happened. The pieces are coming together, but they aren’t all there yet. So if you have an issue with cliffhangers, you might want to wait until they are all out. But you definitely need to read them in order. https://lovebytesreviews.com/

And leave it to Nora to gift us with another of her sexy menage/poly romances! Ohhh, can't get enough of these beauties! Milan, Asher, and Delani. 'Nuf said. Three men who all crave kink and have been denying themselves due to their jobs. Asher and Milan have hooked up before, but they now find themselves hooking up again. They aren't perfect for each other though, as they've both dominant, so it's only circumstances that have them together. And then there's Delani, who craves to serve. And for him, serving two men is better than one. There's a slew of emotions going on in this tale. Milan is suffering after a tragedy. As a tough Dom, we get to see his sensitive side, as he needs the other two men to help him heal. I love the way the author carries this out. There's grief, healing, and plenty of sexual exploration. I love it all. I love Ken, the president's son, and his relationship with Delani. The two grow closer together, and their conversations are great. The BDSM scenes are hot, with different pairings as they're figuring everything out. Delani needs to learn how to be a sub, despite his natural tendencies, and Asher is there to teach him. Milan meanwhile is the sadist in the group. The chemistry between the men is awesome and the scenes between them are sizzling. The author certainly doesn't disappoint. Both the sex scenes and the emotions during them are wonderful. And then there's the on going political issues. They continue to be fascinating and absolutely riveting. What a ride! Danger, murder, suspense, and political intrigue. In this book we get one step closer to learning who's behind everything. The author has created a fantastic, messy and tangled story, and I can't get enough of it. Overall, Serve is a riveting continuation of this White House Men series. Nora Phoenix delights with this mix of sex, romance, and mystery. I couldn't put it down.

    Boy am I just in love with this series! After I finished the first book I felt like I had binge watched a TV show on Netflix that had me on the edge of my seat. Well I just finished season 4 and I'm still all in and still riveted to my seat. These characters, the plot lines, the romance...it just has it all!

Well I just finished season 4 and I'm still all in and still riveted to my seat. These characters, the plot lines, the romance...it just has it all! In book 4 we get Milan, Asher and Denali's story and boy is Milan a tough one. Walls so high around his heart he doesn't want to let anyone in. He and Asher have known each other for years but reconnect for a quick hook-up and then events occur to keep them close. Denali, an adorable and sweet young man that is longing to explore his submissive side wiggles his way into both Milan and Asher's bed, minds and eventually hearts. Their dynamic was so incredibly well done, their time in the bedroom was scorching hot and pure fire (some very erotic d/s scenes), and the way both Asher and Denali worked to break down Milan's walls and help him feel again was just wonderful! While all this was happening, the mystery continues in the White House as more conspiracies are discovered, more secrets come out, and more people get hurt by everything going on. I'm so invested in the drama and cannot wait until everything unfolds. There were a few gasp out loud shocking twists in this one! If you are looking for an ongoing series with deep emotional connections, an intriguing and complex plot, and amazing romance--you've got to read the White House Men! I cannot wait to see who book 5 is about!

    I'm still digging this series! All the characters somehow tied to the White House make for an interesting setup and the potential for drama and action is endless...

I cold totally feel it. And I loved that aspect of being too close to see the obvious about yourself when it's perfectly clear to anyone watching from the outside. What I'm sort of wavering back and forth about is the ongoing suspense plot. I like that there is action and continuation throughout the series. But somehow the details of this plot element don't fully hold my attention. There are long stretches in which there is no new development, about half of the MCs throughout the series aren't even directly involved in the investigation, progress is agonizingly slow and the backstory is complex enough that I tend to forget about the details between books. There is at least one major new ... let's call it 'incident' ... in each book, but it feels more random than inevitable and more like the bad guys are winning than anything actually getting solved. I would like to at least see some partial wins here and there. Anyway, the romance part is always great and not gonna lie, that's what I'm here for first and formost. So, obviously, still looking forward to the next book!

    Denali is such a sweet boy. But, I also think that sometimes he's the most mature one in the relationship, even though Asher and Milan are both older than him. Denali knows himself and he values himself, and he has no problem at all with setting boundaries that are good for him. I get Milan and where he is coming from. He's very Dom-ly, and it totally affects him all the time. Plus, he's worried about his family. I think that he's a very good, caring man, he just has to get out of his own way so Denali is such a sweet boy.

    This I was not expecting. We saw Milani eying up Denali in the last book but I didn't realize he would become an MC and this would be a menage. This one made me weepy, of course, and we still don't have a solution or conclusion to the bombings but we're getting there. That said, the sexy times between these three was smoking hot. Must read the next one ASAP. This I was not expecting. We saw Milani eying up Denali in the last book but I didn't realize he would become an MC and this would be a menage.

    This book is kinky! I didn't really mind except that Denali was so young and really didn't have experience. That said, I do feel they worked well together as a threesome.

    Milan (the President’s BIL), Ash and Denali. A throuple. A kinky throuple. Love it. The dynamic between these three was great. And the unfolding conspiracy is advancing well. I’m not always a fan of the narration of John Solo, but on the whole, he does a good job. KU + whisper sync

    3.5 stars rounded down. Let me get my thoughts together... Honestly, this book is hard to rate. I started this series (with book 1, and read in order) a few days ago, not realizing that each book would end with an HFN (maybe - this book actually ended with “to be continued” - WTF?!) and a lot of unanswered questions. I have since found out that this series is planned to be 7 books in total but release dates are not available for the remaining 3 books.

I have since found out that this series is planned to be 7 books in total but release dates are not available for the remaining 3 books. Looking back, I wish that I wouldn’t have started the series until at least the next book was released because this book’s ending just ticked me off and I’m afraid of the trope in next book being something that I don’t like reading (more on this later). Written in third person POV, which was hard to understand sometimes with this book especially given the poly relationship. Truly, the next book needs to be in at least dual first person POV because the pronouns are confusing given that everyone is a “he” - seriously, there are maybe two women who show up a couple of times. Lots of M/m, M/M, M/m/m sexy times, some better written than others. This author tends to focus on some details that I don’t need or want. But to each their own. I didn’t have an issue with the poly relationship or even with the D/s kink but I think that the author should be aware that she’s losing readers with each subsequent book. Book 1 was two guys of similar ages and experience (little fetish that I would have preferred if it was left out or not the focus). Book 2 had a 10+ year age difference but the experience level between the two was the bigger gap. Book 3 was again two guys of similar age but one was “newly pansexual” with no experience with men and the other had a “kink” that was unusual but not explored within that book (he had another “kink” that was explored but not unusual). This book had 3 guys, approximately 15-20 years age difference between oldest and youngest with the other about right in the middle and introduced more D/S/s kink. Each book is getting further from the type of relationship in the first book. THIS IS A PROBLEM IN A SERIES WITH AN ONGOING SUSPENSEFUL STORYLINE. None of the books are standalones and a couple had HFNs while others, including this one, just abruptly ended. I’m now reading the books to find out why/how all of the “big events” occurred and the romance aspect is secondary. The further the author gets from conventional (there is probably a better word but I can’t think of it - less extreme or fringe?) tropes, the more readers she will lose. My fear is that the next book (or the one after, depending who the MCs are) will be a Daddy Dom book which I do not enjoy and I may not get through it. I understand that sometimes the story takes the author in unexpected directions but there are certain tropes that I avoid and I would never start a series with an ongoing plot if the synopsis for one of the books included something that I know I couldn’t get through. I think that this book would have been improved if Denali was not included as part of the primary relationship. As a character, I liked him - he knew what he liked and wanted even if he had very little experience in the actual BDSM world. Asher and Milan were good together and had had encounters before so there was a level of comfort between the two that could grow into more. While it could be argued that he had more emotional maturity, Denali’s position in the White House and lack of BDSM experience did not make him a good fit for a seasoned Dom like Milan. There was another reviewer that felt that there should have been a trigger warning for breath play. There is a scene with breath play that occurs early in the book and without a prior discussion so you don’t see it coming. From a RACK perspective, not cool. But as mentioned above, Milan and Asher have prior D/s experience together so I wasn’t bothered by the lack of discussion because Asher did give consent at the beginning to submit and Milan is an experienced Dom. I started this review as 4 stars, then 3.5 stars rounded up but I’m ending it as 3.5 stars rounded down. The direction the author is taking with regards to the romance aspect as well as the abrupt end to this book made me change my mind.

    Okay, maybe 2 stars is a little harsh, but I really didn't like this book and it's definitely my least favorite of the series. I didn't connect with the characters at all. I feel like I barely know ANY of them. The way they get together at first felt really forced and after that it's just ther three of them fucking, more investigation, the three of them fucking again, more investigation, rinse and repeat until they apparently all love each other, even though I feel like they barely talked to each Okay, maybe 2 stars is a little harsh, but I really didn't like this book and it's definitely my least favorite of the series.

I didn't feel any romantic feelings between these 3. To me it felt like they were just attracted to each other and that's it. The pace of this story was also really weird and the fact that they spend a majority of the story holed up in Camp David didn't really help. It felt like they were just going around in circles in the second half of the book. Another thing that os purely based on my own tastes: I enjoy reading about BDSM relationships in books, but I'm really not into sadism and pain play, so I couldn't really enjoy that part of the story either. The book also just... ended at a weird place after Milan admitted his feelings for Asher and Denali and it didn't make me feel anything, because I didn't think these 3 even knew each other well enough. So, meh, not for me, but I'm excited to continue on in the series.

    Love this series but Serve was not my cup of tea. I knew that going in and wanted to give the book a chance but I just couldn’t. MMM and D/s are two tropes that I don’t like and this book contains both. I will continue to read this author though as her writing and story telling is good.

    Here we go: Plot: 4.5 stars -- the mystery aspects are still outstanding, and I raced to the end to see what would happen. I'm bummed that it's still not resolved, and I'm hoping the next book will be the final in the series. Main Characters: 3 stars -- again, I enjoyed the previous characters (well, the ones I already liked), but I didn't really care that much about Milan or Denali. Asher seemed intriguing, but he didn't get enough page time to get to know him much.

I essentially skipped over every single sex scene (and there were a lot of them). (view spoiler)[BDSM is so not my thing. (hide spoiler)] Romance: 1.5 stars -- barely there; I know the characters used the word 'love,' but from what we were *shown*, it's really just sex games. World/Setting: 4 stars -- I like this world still. Writing Style: 2 stars -- too much sex. The balance felt way off in this book, and the plot barely moved along outside the bedroom. Plus, tons of telling still. Overall: 3 stars (good thing the mystery plot is so solid) Note: I will be reading the next book, but I hope it's more focused on the actual plot.

I am Loved this A Trifecta of Hotness🔥Awesome Story & Listen🎧 Serve An Age Gap Gay Romance (White House Men Series, Book 4) By: Nora Phoenix Narrated by: John Solo Nora Phoenix turns up the heat in this fourth novel of her White House Men Series with not one but two smoking how alpha dominants and one sweet boy who wants to serve and submit to them. I am loving this series, the ongoing storyline and investigation of the two bombings, their connection as well as the continuous threats are intriguing. I am loving the complexity of it all and how masterfully it is all playing out as the plot thickens and players are being revealed. The threats continue and the fallout hits close to home in this book and it is absolutely heartbreaking and something I did not see coming. Nora Phoenix finds the perfect balance of drama, both personal and political, mystery, thrilling suspense and romance in this series, she adds a little kink into this story while creating the a trifecta of hotness with a Dom, a Dom who is also a Switch and a Sub, that would be Milan Bradbury, Asher Wylie and Denali Weiss. Milan and Asher have history and have enjoyed each other’s body’s in the past, their non-relationship relationship is complicated but Denali shows them what neither one could see, that they harbor feelings for each other. I adored these three, their personalities are so different from each other yet they work. I loved the journey of their relationship and where it lead them, to a beautiful trifecta of hotness!! I would give this book and series 10 stars if I could, five does not seem like enough praise. Nora Phoenix thank you for another awesome story and emotional rollercoaster ride, I am looking forward to what happens next in this mesmerizing and entertaining series. 🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, John Solo is a versatile voicer performer and an entertaining storyteller. I love how he takes each role and makes it his own, sounding believable and just as I picture the characters to sound. He is a natural with the pacing and handles the dialogue with ease, switching roles back and forth with ease and never misses a beat. You could hear how much heart he puts into his work as he captures the character emotions as well as their passion which he projects into his performance. Thank you for another awesome listen, it is always a pleasure to listen to your work.

    The fourth installment of the White House Men series starts with two men who have sacrificed important elements of their private lives to serve the greater good.

Milan has moved into the residence to support his sister and best friend, the President. Asher has left his Secret Service job in New York City to be on the First Lady’s protection detail. The two men have an interesting history and know that they can scratch each other’s itches, but it will require both to make sacrifices to get what they need. It might not be the best outcome for Milan and Asher, but it’s sexy AF for the reader, so I’m pretty sure they’re the only two complaining. Meanwhile, this book ratchets up the elements of the external plot to the point that the primary players have to abandon DC in favor of Camp David. Our favorite heroes from each book are included in that list, and I love that we see how Seth, Coulson, and Calix continue to play an important role in untangling the mystery that now includes multiple bombings and assassinations. But someone has to keep them all fed, and White House steward Denali accompanies them as part of the caretaking staff. Denali volunteers himself to go a bit above and beyond how this care extends to Milan (and Asher). This book’s romance arc is a fascinating dance between three men who must figure out how to balance multiple sets of attraction—and the pesky accompanying emotions that develop. Asher and Milan are certainly not going to turn away a good thing when presented to them, but I love how they also attempt to do their best by Denali. This is especially true when Denali is the one to up-end their entire arrangement by pointing out the emotions involved are just as important as everything else between them. I appreciated the support these men get from their friends almost as much as I adored the love that blooms between these three unlikely men. But the big mystery is still not solved, and I’m anxiously awaiting the next installment of this amazing political romance saga.

    I adored the last book in this series, Click, and really didn’t think it could get better. Well I was wrong. Serve serves up a delicious MMM romance between Milan, the first lady’s brother, Asher, a Secret Service agent, and Denali, a member of the White House kitchen staff. Serve is NOT a standalone.

Serve serves up a delicious MMM romance between Milan, the first lady’s brother, Asher, a Secret Service agent, and Denali, a member of the White House kitchen staff. Serve is NOT a standalone. You absolutely have to read the prior books in this series in order, because there is a continuing terrorism plot/mystery which unfolds as the backbone to these books. The romances themselves are standalones but the rest won’t make sense if you don’t read them in sequence. Serve really accelerates the unraveling of the mystery and adds in additional layers of drama, suspense and angst too. The MMM here is very Dom/sub and the most fascinating part of the romance was how complex the dynamic was between the three men, particularly Asher and Milan. Ms. Phoenix does an amazing job of balancing competing aspects of each man’s personality and shows exactly how right they are as a triad. Her portrayal of Milan, in particular, is exceptionally nuanced. He can be a complete pompous, arrogant ass and yet you still adore him and your heart breaks for him. Denali could easily come off as weak since he’s the sub, but he absolutely is not. It is really fascinating to see the relationships develop. Like the prior books in this series, Serve is exceptionally well written, and the level of detail included demonstrates how extensive Ms. Phoenix’s research was in order to write this story. Despite a plot line that continues beyond this book (yes, there’s still more!), and more of a cliffhanger ending than the prior ones, there is a HEA for Milan, Asher and Denali. I cannot recommend this series enough. It is so different and enjoyable, you won’t be able to put it down.

Our trio are Milan, Dominant, 46 year old former NYPD, brother to Sarah Bradbury Shafer (First Lady), Asher, Switch, former lover of Milan, Secret Service Agent, and Denali, Submissive, server in the White House Residence. The thriller plot is moving along with significant, saddening developments. In some parts of this book the thriller plot does take the fore. The love story between Milan, Asher, and Denali is solid and well written, hot and sexy. The connection between the three men is genuine, they all offer what the others need. Milan and Asher were two men trying to protect their hearts. Asher was able to be honest about what he wanted, but not about the depth of his feelings towards Milan, due to their history. Milan had been keeping himself disconnected from forming connections with others for 20 years, after tragedy. Recent tragedy and loss helps him to recognise this about himself, and that he wants to change this, form connections, and find love. Denali is absolutely lovely, courageous and open with his heart, whilst being honest about the possibility for hurt. I am very interested to see how these three men continue to navigate their love, and relationship. I very much want to see the development and growth of the friendship between Kenn, and Denali. Mrs Morelli is my new favourite background character. I am looking forward to rest of this series, for more love stories, and the continuation of the thriller plot.

What I liked: the kink, the chemistry, the appearances by previous characters, more twists in the political thriller and more clues. What isn't my favorite: for me, while these characters had a great story (especially Asher and Milan's relationship), three-way poly relationships are not my favorite. Neither are age gap stories where one of the characters is really young. These are just my preferences though. Also, this book in the series seemed to be more sex scenes than story. I love explicit sex in books, but at this point in the series, I am also seriously invested in the ongoing political mystery. It's still there with a couple of twists and one huge tear-jerking event, but I wanted more (like how Levar was handling the press, did the fallout after the radio interview just stop? It was never mentioned again.) This story is extremely complex so I can understand some details being left out, but after the rich fullness of books 1-3, to wonder about a few missing things that only needed a sentence or two was jarring for me as a reader. On to book 5 with some trepidation; it's one of my least favorite tropes. I definitely recommend this series and it must be read in order.

The growth of all three characters even during the the tragedies the face is so well done and so beautiful. I loved seeing them come together and create the relationship they have. Not to mention the sex scenes between these three men.. I mean men and boys... are so hot and well done especially when it came to the safety aspect along with the passion. Once I started reading this book I literally didn't put it down so be prepared!! Another amazing book in this series without a doubt! I can't wait for the next one!!!
