The Island: a MFM Romance by Alyne Hart

Let me preface this review with saying this is the first MFM book, but not the first adult romance, book I’ve read. In order to really see the beauty of this story, it is important to understand the dynamics behind this type of romance.

Amie is looking for an escape as she deals with a rough divorce. She travels to Hawaii to work with chairty building houses. There she meets and falls in love with two best friends, Michael and Gabe.  Unsure how to rectify her feelings for both of them, she learns it’s ok to love two people and the three of them create a situation that works for them.

This was one of those books I HAD to keep reading because I wanted to see what happened next. She drew me in from the beginning.  I liked Amie a lot and I think first person point of view was the perfect way to tell this story. It was easy to feel her emotions throughout this story.  I believe Hart did a good job creating a story that could have been all about the sex. The sex scenes were well-written and enhanced the overall story. The plot dragged a tiny bit in a few spots, though, but not enough that I lost interest.

For 31 year old Amie Graham, life on the island was supposed to be simpler – simpler than the life and problems she left behind. Less complicated and less dramatic than life back home. That was the plan anyway.
But fate, it seems, has a sense of humor and it throws a complication or two right in her path.
Complication one, Michael.
If you could cross a model with a football player, you’d get Michael, at least how Amie sees him. Long dark blonde hair, packed with rounded muscles and well over six feet tall, he’s gorgeous, he’s funny, sweet and vulnerable. He’s her own Greek god among men, and she finds herself falling in love with him.
Complication two, Gabe. 
Gabe is beautiful, serene and intelligent, and Amie finds herself drawn to him. With his curly brown hair, soulful green eyes and olive skin decorated with tattoos and piercings – she finds herself falling in love with him also.
The other problem? They’re best friends – and they’re in love with her too. Can three people really love each other, or is the air of the island just messing with their hearts and minds?
WARNING. This is a MFM romance. While this book focuses heavily on the emotions and relationship(s) there is plenty of steam! If this is your cup of tea, you should know there is no MM action. It’s all about Amie, and her love of these two hot, loveable, sexy men

Wine LoverI began my story-telling journey first with my dolls, then it progressed to paper. I have a deep love for anything romantic, and I’m a believer that in love anything is possible.
I write (mostly) strong, witty and intelligent women and strong, sexy, intelligent men (and my own little fantasy – they can all cook)
Most of my stories involve people with problems bigger than just trying to find love, making peace with the past and re-kindling old flames. I love small towns, cowboys, rockstars and men in uniform.
