Book Review: Burning Up (Fitting In, #3) – Silvia Violet

Burning UpThis third book of the series Fitting In did not stray much from its first two book’s premise. It’s still a ménage but this time, it is between firefighters. Bryce has been a firefighter for ten years and when a horrific house fire pushed him to move into a new city, he found himself thrown into the temptation that is Matt and Toby – two hot young firefighters in the closet who are looking for a third in their relationship.

As they indulge in a night of passion, Bryce realized what he’s been missing but refuses to hide sexuality. Given that they are working together professionally, they now have to make tough choices in order to stay together and make their personal relationship work.

I am not a fan of this ménage at all. I didn’t connect very much with Bryce despite having him narrating the whole thing. It felt very uncomfortable whenever he interacts with Matt and Toby. The sex was very hot in a way but it’s also awkward at the same time. The kinky side of these three guys would have worked if not for Bryce’s awkward demeanor towards it. So BDSM is one more thing they have in common with the first couple featured in the first two books.

It is also very disconcerting how immature Matt and Toby sounded especially with all the whining about Bryce initially not wanting to sleep with them. I’m like, seriously guys? You two are like the hottest thing in the room and you are worried about an older guy who is more uptight than a brand new Speedo?

The writing was repetitive at times and lacks original material. I wish there was more connection I could pull out the story itself but alas, there’s just so much of a threesome I could take in a series. I will recommend this if you’re looking for some scorching sex scenes but other than that – I’m inclined to keep my mouth shut.

Book Review: Sorting Out (Fitting In #2) by Silvia Violet

Sorting OutThis is the continuation of Mason, Gray and Jack’s story. After their declaration of love in the first book, the three are now settling together. This time, Mason is now attending college while Gray also applied for a promotion. Jack however was on a limbo. After the robbery incident from the first book left him still reeling and feeling the pressure of coming out from Gray and Mason, he just doesn’t know how to deal with it. After getting shot in the line of duty, he finds himself withdrawing from his lovers. With Gray becoming a detective and Mason studies – both becoming extremely busy, he feels like he’s drifting away.

Now the funny part about this book was the reversal of roles. Jack’s now having a hard time communicating his feelings towards his lovers. He suddenly became oversensitive and way too submissive. I’m still ignoring Gray in this book because he’s still an hard-ass but this book clearly focused on Jack which isn’t a bad thing at all, I just thought that it would’ve been great if there’s an alternate POV between him and Gray since we got Mason in the first book.

Jack’s characterization was obviously altered here which I didn’t like at all. The plot turns improved a little and the sex still plenty – some good, most forced into the story. It was like they just need sex to solve a problem.

Overall, I think this was a great conclusion to the trio’s story when some life-altering decisions were made. At least they’ve got some sort of a happy ending which I’m okay with – sort of.

Book Review: Fitting In (Fitting In #1) by Silvia Violet

Fitting InWhen two hot cops walk in to the bar, Mason’s porn fantasy was ignited. When they talk to him, he was almost speechless. When they propositioned him, he was beyond himself. But when feelings got involved overtime, things got complicated. Mason does not want to go in between Gray and Jack. So he has to say goodbye before causing a rift in their relationship and end up getting hurt yet again.
First, I’d like to say how incredibly hot the chemistry was between these three guys. I mostly loved their sexy times but find the Dom act of Gray too abrasive for my taste. It was mentioned though that he’s not good in communicating his feelings and does better showing it through sex (really now?!) but he could get really annoying. I’ve read a few books involving BDSM and this is one of my least favorites in terms of their scenes. Although the BDSM part was not really excessive here, I just thought that Gray isn’t that solid of a character especially when he’s acting all dominant towards Mason and Jack. He’s too gruff, too macho, acting like a caveman all the time. Mason mentioned that he tried the BDSM scene before and does not like the pain shit stuff but when it comes to Gray, he realized that it’s what he really needs? Huh. I don’t buy that for one second. Maybe he’s got daddy complex or something. Okay, so I just don’t like Gray at all I guess.
Jack was my favorite amongst the three. I loved his passive-aggressive personality and he’s obviously the most rational in the relationship. Mason, I didn’t get much at all despite all his issues about his family’s denial of his sexuality which the author forgotten altogether because apparently sex is more important than getting a story out of it.
Speaking of the story itself, the robbery thingy was just an unnecessary plot to give it some sort of twist or happenings outside their sexual ménage. It’s almost ridiculous because it didn’t really work. But hey, I’m not hating here – I mean I liked the story as a whole and since it was a fairly quick read – I say why not?
