Title: Hiatus

Author: L.A Witt

Synopsis: Three’s a disaster when things come unraveled.

Rock star Nate Keller is on top of the world, but his headlining tour has one drawback. It keeps him away from his boyfriends, Theo and Cameron, for weeks at a time. Yet after four-and-a-half years—and a lot of hard work—the trio is still going strong.

But then Cam comes to visit with devastating news. After seventeen years together, he and Theo have agreed to a trial separation. Nate tries desperately to fix his lovers’ broken relationship, but there’s only so much he can do from the road.

At home, Cam tries to carry on, but feels like his whole life is spiraling out of control. Theo struggles to cope with the split as his depression worsens. They’re both spinning their wheels, quickly losing hope they can keep it together—and keep the man they both still love.

Desperate, Nate drops everything in a last-ditch attempt to pull their trio back together before they hit rock bottom. Except their love could already be shattered beyond repair.

Warning: Contains two men who must face how broken they are before they can fix their failing marriage, and the man who loves them both—but doesn’t know how to save them.

Rating: 4 Stars

Review: *I received this ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

This is not the first L.A. Witt book I’ve read – last year I stumbled upon ‘Running With Scissors’ on Netgalley, and I fell head over heels with it. That’s why when I saw this on Netgalley, I was over the moon. Trust me, I so wasn’t disappointed!

Is it possible for something to be totally adorable and totally hot at the same time?

This is something I’ve been interested in for a while – a polyamorous relationship.I was instantly intrigued by the premise of the book from the synopsis – a rockstar who happens to have two boyfriends, who in turn happen to be married to each other? Fascinating. However, as soon as I started reading, I was drawn into this triad of drama and feelings and emotions that is the relationship between Nate, Cam and Theo.

Let’s see, how can I summarise this succinctly? Nate’s a musician who’s making it big with his band and touring almost constantly, but this puts a spanner in his relationship with Theo – oh yeah, and Theo’s husband, Cam. It’s hard enough for Nate to be away from his boyfriends for months on end, but it gets even harder when Cam appears and breaks the news that the two husbands are having a ‘break.’ You think being in a triad relationship is hard? The drama and tears are just starting.

The three different points of view threw me off a little at the start, and a little thoughout because just as I would get into Nate’s POV, it would switch suddenly to Theo, and I’d have to re-adjust, but that’s pretty much the only bad part. Okay, now we’ve got that out of the way, lets get into the fangirling and squealing.

It’s so refreshing to read something where it’s about the existing relationship and working with that, rather than establishing a brand new relationship. Theo and Cam work on fixing their relationship with each other, their relationship with Nate, and also fixing themselves. They’re all just so adorably pathetic and sad, and I ended up head over fictional heels in love with each and every one of them.

There is graphic sex scenes in it, but they’re few and far between, so you’ll be okay even if smut isn’t your cup of tea. Actually, they’re kind of hot – dyad (two-person) sex scenes, and then an explosively hot threesome later in the book. Ooh la la!

This is a definite recommendation from me if you like guy-on-guy romance novels, or any books where there’s a poly relationship. I can’t wait to get the hard copy of it when it’s released on July 19th.

Happy reading!
