Summary: Coming clean never felt so good...

Grant and Vivi Michaelson share everything in their marriage: love, commitment—and their wildest sexual desires. But their relationship is tested when Vivi admits she wants a threesome with Grant's old friend Cade, proposing their annual trip to the lake as the perfect opportunity to fulfill her fantasy.

All three of them are aroused by the idea. Vivi and Cade have long felt a smoldering attraction to each other...and Grant and Cade have hidden an illicit desire for decades. Going through with the ménage will test their boundaries, reveal old secrets...and maybe tear them apart. After all, there might be room for Cade in bed, but is there room for a third in their marriage?

Madame Cecile Hussy's Review:

This is a very powerful little story. The title actually ties into the book ~ which is really cool. Due to the fact that this book is all about coming clean... one way or another!

We meet husband and wife, Grant and Vivian. They have absolutely everything they could possibly want in their marriage. Even after all the years, their love is as strong as the first day they met. Or should I say the first day Cade - Grant's best friend - introduced them. They are completely devoted to each other. They complete each other. Their sex life is not lacking at all - they are a dynamic couple. Do you sense a but.... no I promise... really. One of the things about this couple I love is that they live to make each other one's dreams/fantasies come true. Wouldn't you want to make your partners dreams come true if you could? If it was within your power, would you deny your mate their dreams? Or reverse the tables... wouldn't you love if your spouse/partner did their damnest to make your dreams come true?

Cade and Grant have been best friends since childhood. They have gone through everything together. Childhood growing pains, teenage years, first encounters of all kinds, hook-ups and break-ups, marriage and divorce (Cade) - everything. They are the epitome of what true best friends are. Cade is not jealous in the least of what Grant and Vivian share. He just wishes he could have a piece of it. I think anyone within their proximity would want what they have. Cade loves both them in their own way, they mean the world to him. They are family... but how much can Cade truly become a part of the family? Is that even possible?

Cade is bi but that does not get in his relationship with either Grant or Vivian. He came clean with his best friend way back in the day. It is a part of who Cade is and Grant would not change a thing about him. Grant accepted that part of Cade a long time ago. But there are things that happened in the past that Grant kinda shoved on a shelf way back in the closet of his heart. He kinda forgot about that shelf until Vivian approaches Grant about a fantasy she has been having....

Vivian never had a problem with Cade being bi; she has always thought Cade to be very sexy. Cade is her fallen angel and Grant is her dark angel. They are complete opposites, but isn't the saying that opposites attract? Vivan has often voiced her fantasies to Grant and he has tried his hardest to make them all come true.... but the latest fantasy she has.... really throws Grant for a loop.... A threesome... with a guy.

We all know that a threesome for a man normally means two women with one man. Every man fantasy. Right?? Well, Grant and Vivian already did that fantasy, so Grant knows the other party is not going to be a woman. What man could Vivian want, Grant wonders. He does not have to wonder long.... Cade.

Friendships will be pushes, boundaries will be crosses (good or bad, I can't tell you), hearts will open but will love grow? How much will these three come clean with each other? You may never do clothes the same way after reading this story! But I must warn you... the smexing... OMG... is off the charts! The shower scene.... is freaking HAWT!!!!! You may have to actually do your own laundry after you read this little triangle of a story! This is an awesome story of the journey of three friends growing together, accepting each other as they are, stripping things bare and raw and seeing where the pieces fall. Can love truly happen three ways??
