Sean Miller and his boyfriend, Tyler Welsh, arrived at Sean’s parents’ home for the usual Wednesday night dinner.  During the meal, Sean’s mother announced that Jamie Matthews has returned and wanted to see Sean. Old wounds of hurt Sean thought were healed years ago were immediately opened.  Sean realizes he is unable to forget his first love Jamie, yet Sean refuses to give up his passion for Tyler.  Sean’s only options are to keep both Tyler and Jamie as his boyfriends. 

Kerry Freeman's What We Deserve highlights the pitfalls of a permanent ménage à trois relationship. The plot blends humor, sensual intimacy scenes, as well as creditable characters with realistic emotions.  Having a gay son was not an issue for any of the parents. The main problem was with Sean, Tyler and Jamie conquering their fear of their budding relationship, ending in heartbreak. Sean and Jamie have a history of being childhood best friends. However, the bond was broken by Jamie’s leaving for service without telling Sean, plus Jamie had no contact with Sean for all the years he was gone. Tyler fears being dumped by Sean as well as Jamie, whom Tyler has grown to love as much as Sean. Jamie fears he has lost any chance of regaining Sean’s trust and love. Jamie also discovers that he loves Tyler.   

Working through their insecurities, all three men make a decision that they can only be happy in a “household of three” relationship. What We Deserve is an impressive happily ever after romance that I enjoyed immensely.
