Surrounded by a group of devoted four-footed and two-winged family members, Zak and Killian have built what should have been a dream life in their countryside farmhouse. But a cruel twist of fate and the re-emergence of old demons has frayed the edges of the men’s seven-year relationship until just one wrong move could end up severing their bond for good.
Seemingly content to walk on eggshells around one another, things come to a head when ER nurse Zak brings his work home with him… literally.
After being forced to leave their posh Southern California lives, homeless stepbrothers Liam and Noah are slowly losing themselves to the streets they can’t seem to escape. When twenty-one-year-old Liam is beaten up while protecting his younger “brother,” the pair find themselves being welcomed into a home where being a stray is considered a good thing. But Liam and nineteen-year-old Noah have learned the hard way that nothing is given for free and there’s no such thing as the kindness of strangers. Survival means only counting on and trusting in each other.
Will Zak and Killian’s offer of a no-strings-attached place to heal end up being more than any of the four men bargained for? Especially when feelings between Liam and Noah begin to crawl to the surface and the truth of what Zak and Killian’s relationship has turned into becomes harder to deny?
And what happens when lines begin to blur and needs start to change? Will Zak, Killian, Liam, and Noah end up going their separate ways?
Or will they learn that love doesn’t always come in twos?

When love doesn’t always come in twos…
Ever since I found out that Sloane Kennedy was writing an M/M/M/M story, I have been on pins and needles to read it. I haven’t always been a MMM fan, but Sloane’s books changed this in a big way and I was sure she was gonna rock this foursome as well. I was right (not surprising), at least that’s how I feel about it!
Zak, a former marine medic who is now working as a nurse, and Killian, a former cop, have been together for 7 years… Most of those years have been wonderful, but they have been hanging by a thread for the last one. Traumatic events happened, decisions were made and talking never really happened. Communication is key people!
So they have been trying to move forward…with lots of fake smiles and lots of avoidance. Thankfully they get plenty of love and comfort from all the abused animals they shelter because they can’t seem to find that comfort in each other anymore.
Things are about to change though when Zak brings home a stray of the non-animal kind. 😛 …Liam has been on trying to take care of and protect his stepbrother Noah, ever since they had to run away from the only home they had. Being on the streets is rough and dangerous, and fighting to protect Noah, lands Liam in the hospital…and in the hands of Zak.
While Zak and Killian offer both of them a safe haven to heal and to rest, feelings start to stir … Not just between Liam and Noah, but a flame is being rekindled between Zak and Killian as well… Now, what will they do when some very HOT interactions, has all four of them falling…
” I was being loved from every possible angle and I’d never felt more relieved in my life.”
I absolutely loved this one. It was so HOT but also so very sweet. I loved how these four men started healing and comforting each other. They all had their own demons they were fighting…I also feel that even though this is an M/M/M/M book and the smexy scenes were awesome, it’s a bit more subdued when it comes to the steam-factor. I really liked it that way (yeah I know weird right). It made it so much more than just sex between 4 guys. No worries though…there is plenty of goodness. 😛
“Hold on a little longer…want to get my tongue in that sweet ass of yours.”
I love Sloane Kennedy’s M/M, M/M/M and now I also fell in love with her M/M/M/M. Let’s hope there will be plenty more books to come…Now I can’t end this review without giving some extra credit where it is due…
Waldo…my little dude…you were absolutely awesome!!!
I never once felt that someone was being left out in this relationship. Once they started all being together, there was no jealousy and no sex without all of them present…Just some misunderstandings and I will say it again…communication is key!
I highly recommend this one! 💗
