Will three men from very different backgrounds find a home and a future together?

After losing his husband to cancer, Oscar Kennedy has his hands full with their four girls, the house, his job, and his mother-in-law. When he loses his father too, keeping Stable Hill, the old horse farm where he grew up, becomes impossible. Oscar hires Jeffrey Stokes, a slick-looking real estate broker with a roll-up-his-sleeves work ethic, to get it on the market.

Russell White manages the day-to-day at Stable Hill. Russ had loved Oscar’s dad like a father, and took on even more responsibility when the old man fell ill. He is shocked and saddened by Oscar’s decision to sell.

All three men have a stake in Stable Hill, and it’s not long before they start to invest in one another too. But their complicated relationship doesn’t make having to sell Stable Hill any easier. Will the fragile triad they’re building last when the farm that brought them together is gone?

Oscar Kennedy has had so much loss.  He is raising four girls on his own after losing his husband to cancer.  His life is centered on doing his best for them.  When his father passes away, he decides the best thing he can do is to sell the farm he grew up on to help support his family.  So when his body responds to the real estate agent Jeffrey Stokes, he’s surprised and intrigued.  When he is drawn to his farm manager Russell White as well, he is more than surprised.   The approach in this book was as gentle and slow as the relationship itself.  It was not forced and included the doubts and fears of the men involved.  I appreciated that it was not “magic” on the page.  That is not to say there was not magic in their romance.  These guys have real chemistry and the watching their relationships develop was a joy.  The farm was a perfect backdrop for these men to learn to love each other.  The juxtaposition of Oscar’s past and future made it a compelling choice.  This was a fun read with a lot of sweet romance and some great scenes with the men as couples and as a complete unit.  This is a great addition to the poly romance world.
