Review – Coming Back by Lauren Dane

Reviewer: MinnChica

I will fully admit to not being a huge fan of Dane’s menage books in the past. I know that a lot of people love them, but I had problems with a lot of them. So, I went into this book with a little bit of trepidation. That being said, I’m so glad I took a chance and picked this one up!!

Mick has finally got his life into a good place, he’s confident in the man he’s become, he’s settled with his job, and he is ready to take a chance at love. The only problem, he did a bang up job of pushing away the only woman – and man – he ever loved.

Jessilyn is done waiting. She let the two loves of her life walk away from her, and now that she’s back in the same town as them both, she isn’t letting either of them push her away again. She is going to fight to what she wants, Mick AND Adam.

Adam hates the fact that he pushed Jessi away, and now that she is back, with Mick, he is going to fight for their relationship – regardless of how unconventional they might be!

I think the biggest thing I liked about this book was that I felt like this was a realistic menage relationship. One of my biggest struggles in reading menage romance is that it is all so unbelievable. But with Jessi, Adam, and Mick, it felt like it was real in so many ways. Dane didn’t sugar coat the struggles, and the connection between all three characters felt real and beautiful.

I liked that although Jessi was the catalyst that brought Mick and Adam together, they also had their own relationship. It wasn’t perfect, and it wasn’t the same, but it was special on it’s own. They had a dynamic that I found to be intriguing and super sexy. I loved that Adam took on a dominant role in the bedroom, with both Jessi and Mick. It was so sexy and really worked for me!

I have to admit that the way that Adam and Mick’s families reacted to their relationship was so real, but so heartbreaking at the same time. I typically like everything to wrap up in rainbows and unicorns in my romance books, but I was oddly comfortable with the way Dane left things at the end with both their families. It wasn’t perfect, but it was the best solution for everyone, and I enjoyed that.

All in all, I think this is probably my favorite Dane menage book, and maybe even one of my favorite menage books ever. I really loved the dynamic between Jessi, Adam, and Mick. I would love to see more of them in future books!
