Review: Threefold by Scott Hildreth

Friday, August 19
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What I loved:

We aren't limited on how many children we love, or to the love of only one parent. Has society programmed us to believe we should only love one partner? What if our heart fell deeply for two people?

Rain Bauer has had an awful life. After living with her abusive stepfather for 15 years, she finally develops the courage to leave at 18. Now 22 and homeless, she yearns for change in her life. As a young girl, she hoped for a prince, white horse, and a HEA, but it never came.

While sitting on a park bench contemplating change, her prince comes not on a white horse, but a Harley-Davidson.

Ethan Hawthorne is a 32 year old Harley riding tattooed hunk. After inviting her to his apartment for dinner, Rain learns Ethan and his roommate Cade are loving, caring, kind, and compassionate.

When she is invited to stay the night and wait out a terrible storm, the changes she has been hoping for begin to unfold...

But is she ready for what life is going to toss her way?

"I had always hoped one day love would call my name; and when it did, I’d be able to answer. I had no idea the call would come from two different directions at the same time." - Rain

Threesomes! I hardly ever get a good threesome book!

What I loved:
- Rain is fantastic. She knows her shortcomings, and she plays to her strengths. I adored her generosity, her kindness, how self-aware she is when it comes to what she thinks men expect from her, all of it. And, ok - she is so free with her heart. It could have been insta-love, which is not at all my thing, but because of how she is written she just comes across as one of those people that falls in love quick and hard. If SH hadn't given her such amazing men to look after her, I would have been anxious for her.
- I just binge read Scott Hildreth's Fuck Books collection (Dick, BRAWLER, Fuck Buddy and this bad boy right here) and here's what I've noticed. None of his characters are perfect. They are awesome, engaging, resourceful, and entertaining. They have internal dialogue that makes me see they are smart, and they think things through. They are aware of what goes on around them. And they are also flawed. I like flaws. Flaws make me love the characters more. Flaws make a character relateable, and flaws call to the Disney in me that makes me think this could happen to me! (I only want the good bits - not the fact that she had a really sad childhood and then spent time on the streets having a really crap early adulthood.)
- I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but got. DAMN. Scott Hildreth writes good raunch. Many thumbs up for that part of the story alone.
- If I had balls, this book would have kicked me in them. (view spoiler) I blubbed like a baby goat.
- Rain is homeless at the start, so for a while all I could think was is she going to have a bath? Then they let her have a bath, and got her all that girly shit I love, and all was right in the world.

What I didn’t love:
- There was a point where Rain's inner dialogue lost me. It was important that she realise how important Ethan was to the whole dynamic - I get that. But how she looked at the situation without Ethan wasn't fair to Cade.
Quote…After much consideration, I realized I didn't love the two men individually as much as I had originally thought, but I loved them as a whole. (...) Without Ethan, there was no love.

This made me question if she really loved Cade at all. And if Cade left, would she even love Ethan on his own? If neither of them were enough on their own, then how do I know it's not just the MFM setup she loves?

Overall…
All the character development and intriguing storyline that I've come to love in a Scott Hildreth story, and in a MFM format that was sexy, well thought out, heartwarming and real all at the same time. In my experience so far, there are MFM books, and there are good books, but hardly ever at the same time. Yeah - this one was a goodie!
