The Rules
The Rules - Jamie Fessenden

He couldn’t imagine being with anyone else, or even with just Boris or just Thomas. He needed both of them. They interconnected like the pieces of a puzzle—a wonderful puzzle with a complicated picture full of books and exotic foods and paintings and beautiful naked men… and lots and lots of naughty bits.

 

At the end of the year, when I reflect on what books have been the best of the best, it will be those books that I still remember scenes, remember characters, and while I may not be able to remember every detail it will be those books that are different enough and touching enough that they have grabbed hold and not let go. 


I am pretty certain that “The Rules” we will one of those books.  What I love about this is that it is not your typical romance and these are certainly not your typical men.  There is absolutely no character I have ever read about like Boris.  He is undoubtedly one of a kind.

 

And like all MMM romances, this is not a relationship that can be easily written. And for me there are not many that work really really well.  This one, for me, did.  And I think a lot of that not only had to do with Boris but in the complete and total honest and quite blunt actions these men take.  And the fact that jealousy DOES come into play was realistic to say the least.

 

There are some MMM books where one of the men makes statements like, “Why would I be jealous?  I mean, I know he loves me.”  Do you really??  I say horseshit, honestly. If you do not experience jealousy in regards to your loved one then for me it comes across more that you just don’t really care.  Caring is an emotion, jealousy is an emotion, claiming someone as yours and wanting no one else to touch what is yours is an emotion.  And what I love about this story is their methods and conversations to deal with these emotions in a positive way.  There is TRUST that is built between them.  There are boundaries and rules and ways of touching one another that is done in such a way that it forges this bond between them that is built quite beautifully together as three.

 

There is not much I want to really say about them for fear of saying too much and spoiling this quite humorous, touching and rather emotional journey.

 

**Highly Recommended**

The Rules of Magic: A Novel - Alice Hoffman

OMG, I totally loved this book. This was the long-awaited prequel to her bestseller Practical Magic, which I had read 20 years ago. Set in the Sixties, it follows the lives of Owens sisters, Franny and Jet, and their brother Vincent. Through the decade they each experience love, heartache and loss due to a family curse. The characters were so vividly written, I did not want to put the book down for a minute!! I have a feeling that a re-read of Practical Magic will be in order for me soon!! Highly recommended!!

The Rules - Jamie Fessenden

The sun was hot, and Thomas disappeared into the house, returning a minute later with beach towels and yet another tube of sunscreen. “I’m still trying to find one Boris likes the smell of.”

“Why does everything have to smell like fruit?” Boris protested.

“Well, this one smells like a sweaty man’s crotch.”

"Really?” Boris grabbed the tube and opened it.

Thomas laughed. “Look at him, getting all excited about it.”

“It doesn’t really smell like crotch, does it?” Hans asked, screwing up his face in distaste.

“No,” Boris said sadly. “Thomas is a liar. But it smells okay.”

He held out the tube for Hans to sniff. It was musky, but more like cologne than crotch.

 

 

*dies laughing*

“Now you’re jealous,” Hans observed, giving him a playful slap.

“Thomas may be beautiful,” Boris replied haughtily, “but I am a gorgeous hunk of man-meat, and if you had any sense, you would both be fucking me right now. Since you are idiots, we will watch a movie.”

“Boris….” Thomas’s voice held a note of warning as he crawled onto the bed, but he was smiling indulgently.

 

 

I think I highlighted this entire scene. ❤️
