BEDFELLOWS by Lola Leighton ~ Sarah A’s Review

I wasn’t looking to fall for one man. Let alone two…

Sullivan and Will are as close as two friends can be. Growing up in the system forced them to rely on each other, and they’ve become accustomed to sharing everything—including women.

Now they’re ready for more. To find love. To start a family. To see the dreams they’ve shared since childhood come true.

Apparently I tick off every box on their list—brains, beauty, and sass. I never hesitate to put both men in their places—which they find sexy as hell.

One problem, I’m a traditional girl, with traditional values—one man, one woman, till death do us part—kind of values.

They’re willing to work to prove how very right the three of us could be, but what happens next is anyone’s guess…


I couldn’t put this book down!  Once I picked it up, I didn’t even take a bathroom break.  Bedfellows was so engrossing and fun.  I love MMF, and this really hit all the highpoints I love about those kinds of stories.  This was a relatively short read, I started after dinner and was done just an hour after bedtime, and I enjoyed every second I spent reading Bedfellows.

I’m no stranger to ménage relationships and consider MMF (male sexual content included) my favorite type of triad relationship.  Will and Sullivan had such an interesting dynamic, they seemed to be so completely in sync there was no question they were soul mates, so I was rooting for them to realize the potential of their connection fully.  I was not disappointed, they were beautiful together, and I think I would have read a book entirely about them, not that I didn’t love Adrienne and what she added to the story, but it was the men that enraptured me to this novel.

I love that Ms. Leighton addressed many of the pitfalls of entering a non-traditional relationship and delved into the things other people would think about it, from jealousy to anger to fear and disgust.  She also illustrated the bonuses of having two lovers beautifully.  Adrienne, Will, and Sullivan navigated those pitfalls and rewards wonderfully.  It was lovely to see them insist on complete transparency in their relationship and it definitely gave them a solid foundation on which to build a trusting, loving, impartial bond.

The only wish I have for this book would be a more fleshed out ending.  I felt like the last 20% of the book was rushed, and there was so much happening we never got truly satisfying resolutions to a lot of the stuff going on.  The book itself ended satisfactorily; it was just a few of the conflicts I would have like to have seen settled on page.

Lola Leighton is the pseudonym for a best-selling author whom I’ve loved for a long time.  This book definitely felt similar to her other novels and delivered the same satisfaction I get from reading the books she’s published under her other name.

Lola Leighton is the pseudonym for a New York Times bestselling romance author who wanted to write steamier stories that her mother is most definitely not allowed to read.
