Niall Roberge always believed he’s meant to find happiness with two partners and has spent years looking for the men destined to hold his love forever. When he meets Dr. Matt Lincoln at a local event and later Trevor Mitchell comes into their lives, he feels complete and that their future is on the right track, if he can convince them they all belong together.

Matt’s participated in many ménages during his life, but is amazed at the intensity and depth of his feelings for Niall and how quickly they develop. Trevor’s been alone most of his life and hasn’t had the best luck in picking partners in the past, so he’s a little reluctant to open himself up to being hurt by the two new men in his life. Yet their growing bond is threatened when a man from Trevor’s past tries to tear him away from Niall and Matt, proving that Trevor belongs only to him.

Simply Perfection is the fourth release in Trina Lane’s ongoing Perfect Love series and it’s my new favorite. There is a carry-over of characters from the previous releases, so reading them in order will allow for the greatest understanding of continuing relationships.

All three men are likable and interesting and it’s easy to get caught up in their lives and growing relationship from the very beginning. It did develop quickly, but the way Ms. Lane got them together, using Niall’s Mohegan tribal history as the base added depth and a unique flair. I appreciated that the author had Trevor questioning the swiftness of their emotional bond; it helped make it more realistic.

The stalker portion of the book was well done and was integrated nicely into the plot. I loved how Trevor dealt with this villain…that he didn’t sit around waiting for rescue but worked to free himself…to return to the men he loved. It gave a very satisfying look into his personality and the search for him pulled his friends from the previous releases deeper into the story.

Overall it’s a fun and entertaining story that I really enjoyed. It’s well-written and plotted, has a smooth, fast pace, and is filled with interesting and intriguing characters. The premise bringing Matt, Niall and Trevor together is unusual and their passion and desire is sizzling hot and intense. Add in the stalker and you have all the aspects needed for a story that will keep your attention from beginning to end. Enjoy!
