A Standalone Menage Romance from Julia Sykes
I was meant to be theirs: Joseph, my sweet first love, and Marco, his dark and dangerous best friend. After Marco steals me away one night, Joseph is waiting for me. They say they can’t let me go, or their enemies might hurt me.
They both want me. Together. The three of us.
I know it’s dirty, and I know Joseph and Marco are dangerous men.
But being with them doesn’t feel wrong. When they hold me in their arms, I feel safe, cherished. If I give myself to them, can they protect me? Or will staying close to them put me in more danger than ever?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So this was the main event “War of Hearts” By Julia Sykes and it was delicious.
This starts where “Battle for love” leaves us, With Ashlyn being kidnapped by the enigmatic Marco and removed to Marco’s family’s country estate where Joseph completely unaware is pining for his lost Angel.
The reason for this abduction, Joseph is heartsick and Marco wants his friend back to what he once was pre-Ashlyn.
So delivering Ashlyn seems the ideal solution to this issue.
So While this is set in the mafia world, there is actually scant interaction with the mafia undertone.
It factors only briefly in the background.
“War Of Hearts” main focus is on the dynamic between our three main characters. Ashlyn, Joseph and Marco.
And as I mentioned previously it’s Marco I am drawn to and I couldn’t wait to learn more about this guarded individual.
It quickly becomes apparent that the alpha personality here is Marco and also that The same thing that has drawn Joseph to his innocent angel Ashlyn and quickly turned into an obsession for him is happening again.
This time with Marco and for different reasons.
Also while Marco is drawn to Ashlyn, he also is aware and knows that she is capable of so much more and in fact that Joseph has vastly underestimated her resilience and strength of capacity.
But where Joseph wants to corrupt his angel and dirty her edges.
Binding her in his ropes and playing with her boundaries.
Marco wants to protect his princess, she is his darling precious girl, and he is also the driving force here behind the whole menage dynamic.
The driver if you will.
I was rubbing my hands together in glee when I realised the dynamic here was of Master, daddy and Ashlyn, I love love love this aspect so much.
So there is plenty more going on here to sell this and I was really pleased with where this took me and how this ended.
And I was ultimately right, there is so much more to Marco than what we were originally given and were exposed to in the short prequel to this “Battle for Love”.
“War Of Hearts” gives us some terrific likeable love interests and it doesn’t hurt that this is also hot and sexy as hell.
Quite a read.
So there we have it, folks, this was a good solid read with fantastic well-developed dynamics between its main three characters.
But, If I’m completely honest, Marco is hands down my favourite.
He is also the individual in this that for me really shone to the forefront.
Capturing that limelight.
So give this a go it is definitely one of the better menage romance I have read.
I was provided with an ARC of “War Of Hearts” By Julia Sykes of which I have reviewed voluntary.
