Fitting In ~ Silvia Violet

You can find purchase links for Fitting In here and the author here


Two cops walk into a bar. Mason, the bartender, waits for the punch line, because no way in hell are these ridiculously hot men real cops. They’re straight out of a cop-fetish fantasy. But he quickly learns that Jack and Gray are the real deal, and they want him in the worst way.

What starts as a night of hot, three-way sex becomes a lot more. The two cops fulfill Mason’s submissive fantasies, but they also meet a more basic need, comfort. They want to take care of Mason, to offer him unconditional friendship, but their concern for him unnerves Mason more than even the kinkiest sex.

To find happiness with his new partners, Mason must change his belief that love is as much a fantasy as a pair of gorgeous, handcuff-wielding cops landing in his bed.

Now, I will admit, I have no shame.  Honestly.  So, when I stumbled across this on Amazon, I was intrigued by an all male threesome.  Who wouldn’t be, right?  Needless to say, it was quite the eye-opener.  *G*

There were two parts to this novella.  The first is a string of robberies that are occurring in and around the area where Mason tends bar.  This is the catalyst that introduces him to his two hot cops - Gray and Jack.  Now, the whole mystery angle is a bit weak, you kind of have an idea from the beginning who is behind it all, but that doesn’t bother me much.  I didn’t go into this thinking it was going to be a James Patterson or Kathy Reichs novel.  I went into this for the love story.  That said, it was a reasonable way to bring the pair of cops into the story as well as give them reasons to return and chat Mason up without looking like weirdoes or creeps. 

The second part is the love story.  Jack and Gray are already in a loving, committed relationship but just happen to be looking to make their duo into a trio.  This is where Mason comes in.  However, Mason is a bit damaged.  He’s suffered at the hands of a threesome gone wrong in the past, so he has a hard time accepting that he can be a true third piece to their already happy puzzle.  It takes a lot of convincing – and even a few arguments – before they manage to convince him that they want him and only him in their relationship.

The love interest portion of the story outshines the mystery aspect, but that’s how it was supposed to be, I’m sure.  The mystery adds substance and circumstance and a little adventure as well.  All in all, I found Fitting In to be a well-rounded, highly sexy novella about a unique bond of love.  I’d highly recommend it to someone who enjoys cop stories, male/male romances, threesomes that are liable to set your e-reader on fire, and just a touch of cheesiness.

One of the great things about reading on a Kindle?  You can highlight your favorite lines, passages, etc.  Here are a couple of mine:

“Step back inside, sir. We got a call that there was someone at this address who needed to be taught a lesson.”

Mason wanted to fall to his knees, unzip Gray’s pants, and take Gray into his mouth right that second. Probably bad etiquette though. Dinner first, then blowjobs. Wasn’t that how a date worked?

Anyway… you see what I mean about the cheesiness factor?  But it’s used sparingly and generally only in those moments when Mason is uneasy.  It’s like his way of hiding his nerves and I loved what it added to the story.
