Mary's Men by Stephanie Beck-Review & Giveaway




Mary’s Men

By: Stephanie Beck

Beachwalk Press

Releasing October 21st, 2013

Blurb:
Three husbands—a dream come true or a pipe dream destined to break them all?

Mary Duncan likes to think she's as open as any modern 1960's woman, but when her boyfriend presents his vision of "family" she finds herself between twin brothers and a cousin—all willing to love her if she'll have them…together.

Loving Thomas and Paul comes easily, the sexy twins everything she'd never hoped to dream. If not for her new mother-in-law, the gossiping townsfolk, and the wall of silence from her own family, Mary would be in Montana heaven. Just as the young group finally start to find their footing with the new relationship, Duane Paraby returns from Vietnam, reluctant to join the relationship, but an integral part Mary refuses to give up.

When confrontation explodes around them, threatening to terminate their bonds before they're even set, Paul, Thomas, and Duane will have to prove they have what it takes to be Mary's men.

Excerpt:

"Really? I suppose the small town you two are from is waiting with open arms to accept the floozy girl willing to screw two brothers, aren't they?" Mary asked.

"It's nobody's business what we do," Paul said, though the real reasons behind her protests became more clear as she explained.

"It's everybody's business. Think about it, Paul. If a rancher came home with a young woman and they were living together, how would that woman be treated? Multiply that by two—by ten."

"So marry us," Thomas said.

The off-the-cuff solution sounded fair enough to Paul, but sweat popped up on the back of his neck. He didn't know if he was ready for that step, and honestly didn't know how he wanted Mary to respond.

"Don't say stuff like that, Thomas," Mary said, though she sounded more sad than angry. "You don't mean it. Besides, look at Paul. The second you said marriage he turned pale."

"That's because he's a wimp." Thomas shifted and leaned over the front bench seat to look her in the eyes. "You're not. So marry us."

Paul wished he could pull over and add his two cents, but he was grateful for Thomas. His brother took the lead, something he did well, when push came to shove.

"Marry us?" Mary demanded. "Do you hear yourself? That's illegal."

"I'm a lawyer, I know," Thomas snapped, finally showing a little irritation. "I mean marry one of us legally and the other symbolically. You'd have the legal and emotional assurance you need. I can't guarantee people will accept you if they find out how close the three of us are. But I can promise you Paul and I will love you and be your best friends for the rest of your life. Duane too."

"Big promises," she said, the edge of disbelief sharp and pointed.

"Yeah, well, we aren't doing this for shits and giggles. You said the permanency is holding you back. We're willing to make it permanent," Thomas said.

Mary poked Paul on the shoulder. "And you? Do you agree with all of this?"

"You can bet your sweet ass I do, darlin'."

"Then take a right at the end of the driveway. We're going to Vegas."

Review:

Mary's Men is a really steamy Menage & more story. It's a bit unusual because it is set during the 1960's...unusual does not detract from the story-line. I kind of liked the idea of it being set during the 60's - not only did Mary & her Men have to overcome obsticles in regards to their lifestyle choice but also obsticles due to the Vietnam war and family & friends.

Together, Mary & her Men find ways to become a family unit, each supporting the other's roles in the family. Mary's Aunt is hysterical and also an unusual character, her love & support throughout the story helps Mary to understand her feelings for the Men are ok
 and not to be scared of those feelings.

I really enjoyed this book, please take the time to check it out for yourself.
