Twenty years ago, I loved a woman.
Twenty years ago, I also loved a man.
And twenty years ago, rather than choose, I abandoned them both.
Now, I’m living a lonely life, luckless in love and unwilling to confront the truth of what I left behind.
When my brother passes, I become responsible for my four-year-old niece. Uprooting her isn’t an option which means heading back to the sticks of New Hampshire, to the small town I fled.
Because of Charlotte.
Because of Liam.
My two best friends, the ones I’d been reluctant to pursue but couldn’t deny.
Attempting to avoid facing my past doesn’t work, and I see them both—together. They appear to have moved on while I can’t.
I still want her.
I still want him.
But secrets lay between us, betrayals that threaten to crack the egg shells we walk on.
I’ve got more than my own heart to look out for now, and I’ll protect those I love this time around.
No matter the cost.
Reluctant Lumberjack is a MMF bisexual menage romance inspired by British Bedmate.
Nolan left his hometown immediately after high school which was two decades earlier when he not only fell in love with both of his best friends, Liam and Charlotte, but was involved in a physical relationship with them as well. Neither of them knew about the other and he couldn’t choose either of them so instead he chose to leave town. When his brother passes away it forces him to return home and give Trina, his niece, the life she deserves.
Liam is a successful surgeon who has recently returned to his hometown while Charlotte, is a teacher who has never left. When it comes to the town, they have both found themselves on the outside looking in for different reasons but that only made their friendship that much deeper. Now that all three are back in the same place will they realize that they belong together despite what anyone else might think or are they destined for heartbreak once again?
The depth of the feelings that all of them had for each other was apparent from the beginning. Both Liam and Charlotte are willing to step aside so that the other can be happy until they realize where their true happiness lay.
Lynn Burke is a full time mother, voracious gardener, and scribbler of hot romance books. A country bumpkin turned Bay Stater, she enjoys her chowdah and Dunkin Donuts when not trying to escape the reality of city life.
