Niall Roberge has patiently waited years to find the two men who are destined to hold his heart forever. He believes his prayers have been answered when he meets Dr. Matt Lincoln and Trevor Mitchell.

Matt has hungered for the closeness of a ménage relationship and is amazed at the instant connection he shares with Niall after being disappointed so many times before. Trevor has led a solitary life and is leery of entrusting his heart to two men who are capable of breaking through the protective walls he’s managed to build with a single touch.

As the three come to terms with the love building between them, they learn that someone is determined to unravel the bonds woven between their souls - a man determined to remind the three that Trevor belongs to him.

Simply Perfection by Trina Lane is the fourth book in the Perfect Love series. The ménage relationship with photographer Niall Roberge, psychiatrist Matt Lincoln, and crime lab tech Trevor Mitchell is unique and provides added interest for readers of this wonderful series.

Matt and Niall feel an immediate connection as soon as they meet and eagerly set up their first date. Both men admit they are ultimately looking for a ménage relationship, and when Matt meets Trevor a few days later and feels the same immediate connection to him that he had for Niall, he asks Trevor out on a date. Matt introduces Trevor to Niall, and while Trevor has not been part of a threesome in the past, he is open to exploring a ménage relationship.

Matt, Niall, and Trevor are three dimensional and realistic protagonists. The overall plot of the novel is sound, and it moves at a brisk pace, but there are quite a few editing errors. The stalker storyline is well executed, and provides tension in an otherwise conflict free novel. The camaraderie between characters from past and present novels is one of Simply Perfection’s strengths and significantly adds to its appeal.

The relationship between Matt, Niall, and Trevor seemed to develop rather quickly. The novel fast forwards three months into their relationship which helps to diffuse the “insta-love” vibe. Trevor’s easy acceptance of a ménage relationship was rather surprising considering he had never been involved in a threesome before. He does eventually question his feelings for the situation which helped lend credibility to his character and the relationship.

Simply Perfection by Trina Lane is an enjoyable and compelling read. An unexpected twist on the ménage storyline along with diverse characters keeps the Perfect Love series fresh and interesting. Fans of this series will be delighted with this latest installment.
