Mary Reviews: Coming in Third by Amber Kell

Love sometimes comes in threes.

With his mother plotting to have him wed, Niall decides to sneak out of the fae palace and fulfill one of his greatest fantasies. At the Unconventional bar, he finds a pair of lion shifters looking to spice up their love life. Unable to resist the strong attraction between them, Niall lets the persuasive pair take him home.

Jovan and Luka have been searching for their third for years. When Niall stumbles into the bar, their shifter instincts tell them the innocent fae could be their long sought mate. After a sensual night together, they’re certain the beautiful man was fated to be theirs.

His guards fetch him from the shifters’ bed and Niall is taken away from the pair. Upset about Niall’s return to the palace and a possible arranged marriage, the lion shifters battle to decide their future—should they go and fetch their mate or let it only be the one-night stand Niall promised them?

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published as part of the Unconventional in San Diego anthology by Pride Publishing.

Coming in Third was a good little quickie, by Amber Kell. I enjoyed it as it was but I must admit it didn’t stop me wishing for more about the world, about Jovan and Luka the shifters. We do find out a bit about Niall and what he goes through but it was told like we should know all this. There was no explanations, no backstory. It almost read like a part of a series and if it is I apologize but there is no indication of it

The elements are all there, the b!t(h of a mother, the bad guards and the good guards, the parade of husband material for the betterment of Mothers position. The chance meeting with your mate/s, the accidental marking, Oh and the ‘fairy godmother’ who saves the day.

The sex was quite well written and sometimes with more than two you can get lost but that was not the case here.   It just needed a bit more to crack the pretty darn good barrier. Pleasant.
Three and a half

About Amber:
Amber Kell has made a career out of daydreaming. It has been a lifelong habit she practices diligently as shown by her complete lack of focus on anything not related to her fantasy world building.

When she told her husband what she wanted to do with her life he told her to go have fun.

During those seconds she isn’t writing she remembers she has children who humor her with games of ‘what if’ and let her drag them to foreign lands to gather inspiration. Her youngest confided in her that he wants to write because he longs for a website and an author name—two things apparently necessary to be a proper writer.

Despite her husband’s insistence she doesn’t drink enough to be a true literary genius she continues to spin stories of people falling happily in love and staying that way.

She is thwarted during the day by a traffic jam of cats on the stairway and a puppy who insists on walks, but she bravely perseveres.
