The Theory of Deviance

Disclaimer MaleTAG

Deviance is unacceptable. It’s taboo. And it’s the one thing he’s always wanted.

Painful shyness isn’t the only reason Mikey Pelletier is a twenty-five-year-old virgin. Between working for his parents and volunteering at his church, he neither has the time nor the inclination to admit his bisexuality to the world—or to himself.

A visit from Krissy Porter will hopefully fix everything. After three months of chatting with her, Mikey’s got one carefully planned week to win her heart and lose his V-card. He’s hoping he can pull it off, even with her roommate along for the ride.

Krissy has been drawn to Mikey for a while. He’s so easygoing, she thinks he could be the calm in her storm. But there’s an extra complication when she comes to visit: her friend-with-benefits, “hetero-flexible” roommate, Rafe.

During a week of revelations, intimacy, and kink, Krissy and Rafe become the angel and devil on Mikey’s shoulders, tempting him in different directions. And all three of them discover that a week of pure deviance can lead to the most uncontrollable emotion of all: love.

Warning: This book contains innocent board game-playing that takes a sexy turn, use of recreational substances, back-door action, and some smokin’ hot threesomes. Plus, scenes of inner-demon slaying. Fans and tissues advised.

I have to admit – After reading the first chapter, I wasn’t thrilled with the story. It was sexy, but didn’t have any depth to it. So, I assumed the rest would just be a fluffy sexy ménage story. However, as I continued on, the story and my mind changed in a drastic way! I expected Mikey to fall for one of the others – Krissy or Rafe. What I didn’t expect (and was pleasantly surprised with) was the depth of the feelings each one had for the other and how much growth each one experienced during their week together!

The author really dove in and got into the heart and soul of each individual characters. Even Rafe, who wasn’t focused on individually as the others. They each had their own demons to fight and their own pain to endure. But, where one hurt, the others were right there to soothe and balance that person.  Together, their relationship creates the perfect equilateral triangle – each one perfectly balancing and in love with the other two. It really is an amazing story of love, growth, and balance. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am so glad I didn’t close myself off after the first chapter!
