Will his boyfriend’s girlfriend become his girlfriend too?

Powertools, Book 4

James has watched each of the crew fall in love, one by one, until only he and his life partner Neil remain “unattached”. So, when he sees the way his bisexual boyfriend is checking out their new apprentice, he’s sure he’s doomed to lose the man of his dreams.

His love is strong enough that he would let go to ensure Neil’s happiness. Instead, sparks fly between the three of them—along with the rest of the crew—and he realizes he might not have to surrender because his boyfriend’s girlfriend is becoming his girlfriend too.

Proceed with caution when using Powertools, you just never know how hot they are going to get. Jayne Rylon’s fourth book in her Powertools series, Devon’s Pair, is smokin’ hot and exceptionally dirty! Ms. Rylon never fails to deliver the kink and the underlying drama in her books and Devon’s Pair was no exception. This book began by pulling me in on the first page with Ms. Rylon’s distinct imagery and had me completely snared by the third with the inevitable drama about to unfold.

The Powertools series began with a pairing off the Crew’s foreman Mike and the others have followed suit. I was curious how Ms. Rylon was going to deal with Neil and James in this series being that they are a couple themselves, except Neil is bi-sexual and James’ preference is guys...actually his preference is Neil. So we are given two guys who are already in love. Them we get Devon, a tomboy who works in construction too, who joins the crew as an apprentice and Neil experiences love at first sight for the second time in his life. Neil is a lucky guy, if you ask this reader.

There are a two major plot points in Devon’s Pair which are both integral parts of the story. There is the love triangle between Neil, James and Devon and their feelings for one another. There is also the on-going sharing relationship with the crew which includes the new mates of the other crew members, which is experiencing growing pains. Without revealing anything to spoil the story, let me just say that Jayne Rylon is extraordinarily talented when combining issues of the heart and writing erotic fiction. I have yet to experience anything that compares. Whew, but when this group gets together the pages ignite and a reader’s temperature rises exponentially.

Ms. Rylon has written a tight storyline that covers a lot of ground in a short number of pages; it boggles my mind how it was even possible, but somehow she does it seamlessly. This story is written from the point of view of Devon and James and I really enjoyed how Ms. Rylon incorporated their thoughts and feelings throughout. I really enjoyed the dialogue in this story as the characters banter back and forth as well as express their feelings realistically. Kudos to Ms. Rylon on her spectacular sex scenes. She has managed to pen the unimaginable and make it seem as though I was a voyeur who was unable to turn away.

Jayne Rylon fans, if you haven’t gotten your copy of Devon’s Pair, what are you waiting for? For those readers who haven’t read any of Ms. Rylon’s books and enjoy the really dirty reads that actually have a storyline, go get Devon’s Pair. You are guaranteed to find a new favorite.

I have only read the first in the series and I swear I had to draw a diagram to keep everyone straight. It was so exciting to read about all of them coming together as one. I am anxious to read the rest of the books because I enjoyed the characters so much that I cannot wait see where Ms Rylon takes them.

Great review!
