Title: Three of a Kind
What’s better than a pair? Three of a Kind of course!
Zane is about to give up by the time his truck breaks down in Arizona. All he has in the world is the truck, less than fifty bucks and more bruises than any one young man should have to bear. That’s when he meets buff giant Butch who takes Zane in, helping him get his life back together.
Problem is, Butch already has a lover, an artist named Randy. Or at least Zane thinks it’s a problem. Turns out, it’s not the kind of trouble Zane thinks it is when Butch and Randy both take a romantic interest in him.
Can Zane let go of his troubled past and let Butch and Randy teach him that love doesn’t have to hurt?

Kicked out by his parents and brutally beaten by his lover, Zane is at the end of his ropes when his truck breaks down. Butch sees a truck broken down on the side of the road and stops to help. Quickly seeing the trunk is not the only thing in dire shape, Butch takes home Zane to helping him get his life back together. As Zane begins to heal on the out, Randy and Butch try to heal him on the inside. The only thing hold them back is Zane as he struggles to understand real love shouldn’t hurt.
Now that I have finished the book, I look back to the cover and try to match face to character and decided it’s a semi close match. Zane (Front left-good match) is the fragile delicate wounded one that needs protection while he heals. Randy (Middle right-also good match) is sweet and a total flirt but he doesn’t come off as the brightest crayon in the box. Butch (Center back-not so much) is the strong one while also being the glue-ish mother hen that holds everyone together. Actually, I have images in my head of him being a bit older. There’s a nice combination of two-some and three-some scenes both emotion as well as physical that give a nice flavor to this novella. Despite Zane’s dire situation, the story reads hopeful and at times, funny. There’s not any friction or jealousy when pairing up occurs and it is all tied together nicely at the end with a HEA for them as to be expected
Author Sean Michael has been on my radar for a while now. He’s just had these interesting blurbs and I’ve been itching to try out one of his books. Three of a Kind was a good read and a nice introduction to his works. I know when I’ve got a hankering for something short, sweet and hot in the M/M genre, he will be my go-to author.
