Three of Hearts & Three of Spades by W. Ferraro Blog Tour
Mae Turney is searching for the type of life and happiness she has never known but has only dreamed about. She's fortunate enough to find a great opportunity to live in an exterior apartment of a beautiful lake house in a small town in Vermont. When she realizes the apartment and scenery are not the only gorgeous appeal but the home owner, Seth Finn, is as well, she puts it all on the line for the chance at love. When she becomes comfortable and confident in her own skin and sexuality, Mae realizes that this place and this man is exactly what she came looking for. Knowing Seth and his three children are as special as they come, Mae bets the house, and prays she and her gamble are enough.
Dylan Cross is the type of man that enjoys everything female, and enjoy it he does, but always on his terms. However, his terms are pushed to their limit when Natalie Parker proposes an offer; teach her and her delectable little body, all about sex and desire. There is one catch. He has to play the part of Natalie's madly in love boyfriend for her dying mother. Dylan signs on, and finds that separating the two is harder than he thought. Natalie's days of shyness and lack of confidence come to a quick close as she learns what her body craves and demands in the bedroom. Soon, Dylan becomes the student as Natalie teaches him things he didn't even know he wanted. Will Hamden's notorious playboy, bachelor be able to keep calling the shots, or will he find that, he, himself, is just another player at the card game of life, as we all are?
I received these books a few days ago to read for the tour. That was completely my fault as I didn't tell the tour coordinator I hadn't received the ARC's yet. So, I started reading! I read both of these in two days. They're very good and were easy flowing books. The stories are ones that you can just picture in your mind and feel like you're one of the characters in the story.
I will say for both of these stories you could feel like you were right in the small town of Hamden following these characters around, getting to know each of them, and wanting to learn more about them. In the stories the two main male characters are best friends. Seth & Dylan have been friends for over 30 years and are not afraid to call each other out. Seth made a HUGE mistake in Three of Hearts and Dylan was not above calling him out once Seth calmed down from his tirade. In Three of Spade, Seth was pretty easy on Dylan compared to the other way around, but he did make sure to tell Dylan to go after what he really wanted. Both men being stubborn fools and not wanting to see the loves of their lives right in front of their faces needed that extra push.
Now for the ladies. Mae and Natalie are awesome female leads. I would jump at the chance to be in their friend group. The support and kindness they show each other are exactly what I look for in my personal friends.
Each of these stories has some life drama that happens to split the couples apart. The real question is, will they fight for the loves of their lives, or will they let them walk away?
