Grant Sommerfield. Dark. Intense. Lonely. With a past he’s built an empire to protect himself from.

Nash Levington. Spelled F-U-N. Easygoing. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

And then there’s me. Journey Walker. A good girl with too many responsibilities and too little fun.

Not that I’m complaining. As a physical therapy assistant, I love working with the elderly and disabled. I’ve managed to create a good life for me and my Down Syndrome sister from the ashes my mother left behind. I love my life. I love my sister. I’m content.

Until I meet them. Grant. Nash. On the exact same day, no less. They’re complete opposites, and they both pull out a side of me I wasn’t aware existed.
The side that wants to play. Wants to love. Wants to enjoy new experiences.

When my sister goes to camp for three weeks, things become interesting. And complicated. And so very seductive.

Grant. Nash.

How’s a girl to choose? Maybe I won’t.

Or maybe the choice will be made for me.

Excerpt

Nash lifted my chin and waited until I looked at him. Grant’s hands moved to my belly, stroking up and down. Nash looked up, over my head and to his friend. A silent communication seemed to pass between them because Nash nodded some silent understanding.

“You don’t have to choose,” he said and leaned down to kiss me. “We’re both right here.”

Strong hands turned me, and I looked up into Grant’s face. He wiped away my tears, his dark eyes so soft I nearly started crying again. “That’s right. You can have us both.”

His kiss was so soft, so unexpected that I clung to him, pressing my lips to his. His hands cupped my face as other hands stroked down my arms.

Those hands stopped at my wrists and journeyed back up to my shoulders while Grant’s tongue twisted around mine. The straps of my dress were moved to the side and lips pressed against my skin.

This was wrong.

And it was so very, very right.

    What are the chances of two best friends dating the same woman both are crazy about? They never realize they are in a love triangle until later.

    Ms. Ward delivers her story about a threesome and makes it her own with her signature style. An unconventional plot that is unique, sweet, sexy, funny, emotional, romantic with a bit of suspense thrown in. By the second chapter, I knew it would be a winner. With two gorgeous, rich men so different from one another yet they are the best of friends since college, Grant Sommerfield and Nash Levington meet Journey Walker the same week under different circumstances. Journey is attracted to both and agrees to date telling each that she is also dating another man. She is unaware Grant and Nash know each other. It’s complicated but so much pleasure to read.

    Journey Walker has a sordid childhood she’d rather forget. She has a heavy responsibility to her younger sister, Jazzy. I loved big-hearted Jazzy. She is definitely the sunshine in this story with her personality and brand of humor. I admired Journey as a strong heroine. She is caring, thoughtful and resilient, and stood up for Jazzy and herself. But Journey’s past comes roaring back into her life and threatens to disrupt Journey and Jazzy’s life. What a twist that had me turning the pages.

    The Choice is a romantic read that is addictive. There is an instant attraction and lots of sizzling chemistry between Grant, Journey, and Nash. But it’s the connection between Grant and Journey that is quite emotional, two broken souls who find familiar ground and understanding.

    “ I don’t know. Maybe both our hearts are cracked in the same place.”

    Ms. Ward gives us a well-written story that is a perfect blend of story and sensual scenes. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending and loved the satisfying epilogue. Wonderful job, Ms. Ward. I loved, loved this story. I received and voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    I loved this story of Journey, Grant and Nash. I could not stop reading once I started. I just had to know what happened next. I’m not giving away any of the story line as you can read the synopsis for yourself. I actually hoped for a different ending but I am happy with it nonetheless! I received an advance copy of this book and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. This is absolutely my favorite Alice Ward book. It had me from the beginning until the last page.
    Journey has cared for her downs sister Jaz all of her life. With her sister going to camp for 3 weeks she’s ready to let her hair down and finally be a single woman.
    Grant has never let a woman get close. He is very closed off to emotions. But with one little fire it has him considering letting a woman in.
    Every character in this book has it’s own heartbreaking story and will leave you in tears when you learn them. It will also have you laughing at all of Jaz’s jokes and funny comebacks. The epilogue was probably favorite. Thanks for giving everyone their HEA ending.

    Absolutely loved this story. It’s so much more than an MFM story that you would think it is at first. Loved Journey, Grant, and Nash. Jazzy stole the show with her banter, jokes, and humor. Loved her! You can’t go wrong with anything from Alice Ward and this story right here is why. I didn’t want it to end, I had to go back and reread it!

    Could not put this book down. What are the chances that the two men you meet under different circumstances are best friends and you love them both? How can you be expected to choose? Life is full of twists and turns and navigating causes us to make choices that are more difficult than we expect.

    Voluntarily read an advance copy of this book.

    Okay so ménage is not my thing. However once again Alice Ward writes a great story. I continue to be impressed by the depth of characters in her stories and the way you can “know” them. They are real people that grow and change as the story goes on. For me the only holdup was really the ménage but it didn’t overwhelm the story. If it’s not your thing you could easily skip those sections and still have a great story. I sat down and had to read it through to the end—didn’t want to put it down. I loved all the characters as individuals and as their relationships evolved I felt I was there. Journey, Grant and Nash were real people but of course Jazzy almost stole the show. I read a lot and many stories are just that. With an Alice Ward book you are getting a real life adventure. Laughs, tears, angst and good times, these are real people that you get to know. Highly recommend. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).

    Beautifully Written, Incredible Dilemma – Amazing Read!!!

    Journey is the ultimate heroine. With a less than useless mother, Journey’s Mee-maw raised her and her sister Jasmine (Jaz). Since her Mee-maw passed away, Journey has struggled to care for her sister who has special needs; holding down two jobs, and postponing her degree.

    An issue at the sister’s apartment happens just as the owner is there for a meeting. The owner Grant is handsome and smitten with Journey and goes above and beyond to remedy their situation. Grant usually enters into a contract with those he dates, but breaks a few of his own rules for Journey.

    The same afternoon Journey is teaching yoga to a senior class, when a hoodlum steals the purse of one of her ladies. She sprints to catch him, but jogger Nash also sees and ultimately catches the thief.

    Journey never gets time for herself, but as her sister is going to camp for three weeks, she uses this time to date each of her saviors. Each man has his own baggage to deal with, but each date brings each couple closer. We know Grant and Nash are best friends, but it takes a while for this to be revealed in the book.

    Extravagant dates, building relationships, humor and learning what makes each character tick all combine together to create an incredible story. Truly an incredible and enjoyable read.

    What do you do when you find yourself involved with two different men and they are best friends? You have a great big choice to make. Journey finds herself in that exact same predicament with Grant and Nash, and although they are willing to share her and she loves them both a decision is made. I went back and forth with who she should choose as I loved them both, and you could tell that it was not an easy decision. I just hope the man who walks away also gets his own story of finding true love. With great characters and a storyline that had more twists and turns than a rollercoaster, this is a book that should not be missed.

    This book was absolutely amazing! I have read many books from this author but I would have to say this book is probably my absolute favorite. Journey, Grant, and Nash all have a special bond. You get to learn about each individual character and things they have gone through in life. Jazz, was funny, sweet, and caring. This story will have you laughing out loud and the next minute, you’ll need a tissue. The ending was a nail bitter for sure. This book will have your emotions going wild. Loved it!

    A love triangle with an unexpected storyline that left me pleasantly surprised.

    Journey has been helping to raise her sister since birth. A nightmare of a start in life ended up bringing her to her grandmother. Her and her sister Jaz had a good life with Mee-maw. And since she passed, Journey is still caring for her sister. She’s young, beautiful, witty, resilient and hard-working.

    Grant comes in the picture when an accidental fire, at one of his buildings, occurs in Journey’s apartment. He’s gorgeous, aloof, hard-working and a good guy. The attraction between Journey and Grant is immediate and intense. But he’s leery of relationships and prefers to conduct them without feelings, more like business transactions.

    That same day. Journey meets Nash. A southern gentleman with an engaging smile and enough charm to relieve you of your panties. He’s fun-loving, in it for a good time, no strings kind of guy.

    Journey decides to live on the wild side a little and date both men while her sister goes away to camp for three weeks. No secrets, full disclosure. That is until the two guys meet…it’s about to get HOT!!!

    This story was not at all what I expected. Jaz was awesome and hilarious as were the elderly people from Journey’s job! The relationships between both coupled were beautiful. A fun fling full of new experiences became life changing and two broken hearts found eachother and became whole.

    Holy smokes, this was an amazing read. This is not your typical menage story….these characters have so much back story that pertains to the choices they make, the things they do and they way that they persevere. We have our main characters Grant, Journey and Nash but the supporting characters in this story will grab at your heart just as strongly. There is so much that goes on in this story and how the author wraps it all up in the end is absolutely fabulous. I don’t like to layout the story and leak any spoilers so its hard to write a proper review for this book. In short, this story is heartbreaking, frustrating, joyful and very steamy. You will not be disappointed if you sit down to read this book. If you have never read this author’s work….this is a good start.

    I read this as an ARC.

    I have to be honest, looking at the cover kind had me thinking if I was going to like this or not. I’m a one woman man kinda girl. But I’m glad I pushed through my own first thought and really gave this book a chance. All is not what meets the eye. This is a story about a girl who has too many responsibilities and not enough time for herself. Grant, Nash & Journey are all great characters. There are twists and turns that you will not want to miss with this book and will Journey be able to pick just one man?

    Journey had a rough childhood. Her mother was a junkie that used her for kiddie porn. She has always taken care of her sister Jasmine who has Down Syndrome. Grant lost his family in a tragic boat accident. Because of this he doesn’t allow anyone to get to close. Nash has a famous singer for a mother. If people recognize him they always want something from him. I loved Grant, Nash and Journey’s relationship they had amazing chemistry. There was drama, intrigue and excitement. This was an emotional read that was both heartwrenching and heartwarming. An amazing read I highly recommend. I voluntarily received an advance arc copy for an honest review.

    an outstanding wonderful story. Well written with so many different twists. You fall for each of the characters so fast. They each have strong great personalities. Once you start reading it’s hard to put down. One of Alice’s best reads!

    Alice Ward has written an outstanding page turner that will captivate you from beginning to end. This well told romance story is filled with drama, intrigue, a bit of angst, tragedy, humor, intense attraction, steamy scenes, and so many emotions.

    I do not know how Alice Ward comes up with her stories but as always this is another amazing read. Journey is a strong woman who has dealt with adversity her whole life. Ms. Ward shows that a disability is only a disability if you make it one. Jazz is also a strong beautiful woman who has had to also deal with a lot of adversity including those that are created by societies beliefs and stigmatises. Grant also has plenty of ghosts of his own and to round out the cast you have Nash. Either many is an incredible choice. You, will laugh, you will cry, you will get mad but in the end you will get a happy ever after. Also you will get a quick reminder of the beasts. This book is a must read.

    This was an extremely well-written, heartwarming and at times, very emotional story. There were moments of laughter, joy, love, sorrow, danger, distress and some unexpected twists. The characters were well defined and very realistic. I loved the relationship Journey had with the seniors at the care home; with her sister Jaz; and particularly with Grant and Nash. It was wonderful to see so many different people become one extended loving family – especially as so many of them had had traumatic life experiences. All in all, this was another terrific story from Alice Ward. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Another solid hit for Alice Ward. I hated to put this incredibly touching story down when RL intervened. The depth of characters and the emotions this story evoked were heartwarming and sentimental. Each person in the book had their trials to overcome, to complete themselves. I loved the fact that this book is written with humour and sensitivity. And if you are not into menages, don’t worry, this one is handled delicately and adds a lot of profoundness to the story’s premise. Family is who you choose, not who you are born to.

    It’s amazing how Alice Ward tells a story. This story about Journey is beautiful, sexy, sweet, hot and well written. There were parts that were a little slow but, it set the stage of Journey being in the same room with Grant and Nash perfectly. It’s heavy with anticipation waiting for what comes next and, oh my, it is intense.

    I really liked these complex characters and I especially liked Journey’s amazing, loving, supportive relationship with her sister, Jazzy. It is the essence of Journey’s heart that is center stage in the story and it expands to touch on the closely gurarded hearts of Grant and Nash.

    I recommend this read not only for the menage aspect but, for the innocence and beauty of a sisterly love and for the subtle passion of a true love found unexpectedly.

    I’m staring at the blinking cursor on my computer screen and I’m forced to confront a vital question: how the heck do I review this without giving away the ending? I can say it reminds me a lot of the movie ‘This Means War’, the extra, extra restricted rated version, just without the spies and the car chases. And if I say much more than that, I will be giving away the ending. I think it’s that movie that has one of my favorite lines: “don’t choose the man you can live with, choose the man you can’t live without”.
    I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
