Three means war. Three sides vying for forever.
Cole. My first love. The bad boy with the dangerous smile and passionate temper draws attention like a lit fuse on dynamite. But his dark molten eyes spark only for me.
Trace. My second chance. Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.
Me. The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight. I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering. What options do I have left?
I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.

REVIEW

“Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle. Love is a war. Love is a growing up.” James A. Baldwin

I really, really loved this one. Pam was definitely saving the best for last. This installment had everything Pam is well known for. Excellent writing, hot AF sex and Uber complicated relationships!

If being with one or the other is a choice, when did I decide to love them both? I didn’t. Love happened twice, and I have no regrets, even if the situation feels impossible, even if the looming decision makes me believe I will never survive it. As much as I fear the future, it isn’t going away until it shows me what I need to do. I fell in love with two men and lost myself. I’ll stay in love with one and find myself again.

I devoured this one. It was a true roller coaster ride though, my emotions were all over the place. Not only was this is the end, and a decision needed to be made, the set up with the cliffhanger in Book 2 was also something I’ve been looking forward to.

“You look at me and see one of two choices. I look at you and see absoluteness. But we have time. Someday, we’ll look beyond the question marks and just see us.”

“Lie to me, Danni. Tell me we’re not made of the same destiny.”

I don’t want to say too much, because I definitely don’t want to spoil a single thing. But I’ll tell you what I loved.

-I loved that this was not easy, like I said, this was a true roller coaster.

-I loved that this was super hot. Holy eff, this was hot!

-I loved that after everything there are no doubts about her decision. No what ifs. The way Pam wrote this last installment was brilliant. No one wins by default, no one makes a decision for her and no one checks out. Ahhh I can’t say anything else, I can’t!

“But the heart isn’t logical. Sometimes, we don’t know what we want until it’s gone.”

Overall, as a series this was as solid as it comes, and as a love triangle is definitely at the top of my list. This was absolutely fantastic and I totally recommend!

“I want to prove to you that you were never second choice. Or any kind of choice. It was always you. I just…I had to do a lot of growing up to figure that out.”

Three is a War (Book 3)

Amazon | Other retailers | Goodreads


One is a Promise (Book 1)

Amazon | Other Retailers | Goodreads | Teasers

One promise.
One forever.

One look and I knew Cole was mine. My dark rebel in leather. My powerhouse of passion, devastating smiles, and impulsiveness.
When his job sends him overseas, he promises to return to me.
A promise that’s destroyed in the most irrevocable way.

Two years later, an arrogant suit invades my heartbroken loneliness.

Clean-cut and stern, Trace is everything Cole wasn’t.
At first, he’s a job that will rescue my dance company. But as he intrudes on my life, our hostile relationship evolves.
He knows I’m still in love with Cole, but his dedication is my undoing.

Then a catastrophic moment changes everything.

Promises resurface.
Lies entangle.
And an impossible choice shatters my world.

I love two men, and I can only have one.


Two is a Lie (Book 2)

Amazon | Other retailers | Goodreads

Two lies.
Two men who don’t share.

I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury.
His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.

Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever.
And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.

The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them.
Fighting and fucking.
Resisting and submitting.

Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.

I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.
