Donovan Kennedy is the girl dreams are made of.

Five years ago, she was our best friend.
Our moral compass.
The girl that held our hands everywhere we went.

The three of us were young. Innocent.
Nothing could touch us โ€” not even heartache.

That was then.

Now sheโ€™s back. All grown up.
With red lips and long legs โ€” a challenge waiting to be accepted. A prize thatโ€™ll turn our world upside down.

Brothers turned to enemies.
Friendships decimated.
Lies told.
Hearts torn apart.

We never expected to fall for the girl.
In the end, sheโ€™ll only choose one โ€”Me.

Donovan, Grey, and Liam were childhood best friends. Their trio was inseparable, unbreakable.ย Until at twelve years old a nasty divorce steals Van away from her two favorite guys.

Now, five years later, it’s senior year at Hillcrest and Donovan is back.

The boys never forgot their favorite girl and Donovan never realized how much she missed, needed, loved her two guys until they are back in her life again. But things are different now. The trio isn’t kids anymore and feelings of friendship have grown and changed over time…

Donovan refuses to acknowledge the flirting and the feelings but she can only ignore them for so long… the more she falls, the more the boys fall too. Liam and Grey are willing to sacrifice everything, even their lifelong friendship. They have shared everything but the one thing they aren’t willing to share is Donovan.

Gray McCallister is the dark and broody, intense all American boy with a whole lot of rough edges. Gray loves hard and he’d burn the world down around him for Donovan. He may make a few bad decisions, but his heart was always in the right place… with her.

I don’t even want to mention who she ‘chooses’ but I do have to say that even though I myself could have never chosen, I think she chooses perfectly for her although I must admit I could feel how completely torn she was at having to.

Donovan has a special relationship with each of her boys. With Liam, he’s her confidant, her best friend that she can relax and cut up with. And with Grey, she’s his calm. The two of them have such a bond that neither of them needs to speak a word and they just know what the other needs. But the three of them together, they are the perfect trio. The banter between the boys, and even between them and Donovan had me literally laughing out loud so many times. I loved that there was a bit of humor thrown in when readers could have gotten bogged down by all the angsty goodness. It was most definitely appreciated to help take the edge off a bit.

Liam steals the cup from me and takes a large gulp, then pulls it away from his lips to look at it before throwing the rest on the grass.

โ€œThat wonโ€™t do.โ€

โ€œLiam,โ€ I laugh. โ€œThat was my drink.โ€

He brings his face close to mine and growls, making me giggle and back up, as he stalks toward me. I hold my hands out, โ€œYou better stop it. Youโ€™re drunk and canโ€™t be trusted. Greyโ€”a little help?โ€

But Grey doesnโ€™t move a muscle as he swigs his own drink. Bastard. Heโ€™s enjoying this.

Liam puts his arms behind his back and chuckles.

โ€œHe canโ€™t help you. And youโ€™re right. On both accountsโ€”I am drunk and shouldnโ€™t be trusted.โ€

He lunges for me, wrapping an arm around my stomach and swinging me around. I scream, laughing until he pulls me to his chest and stares down at me. The specks of yellow in his eyes almost glow in the light.

โ€œSo terrible you are.โ€

He blows a breath full of whiskey at my bangs, clearing them from my face.

โ€œCome on, Yoda, you need to catch up. Everybodyโ€™s getting crazy tonight.โ€

The moment he says it, Ethan runs by, stark nude.


I bury my face in Liamโ€™s chest and squeal with laughter as he howls at the sky a few times before sweeping me off the ground.


โ€œHell yeah. Weโ€™re dipping, Van.โ€

Over Liamโ€™s shoulder, I see Grey down his drink and toss it, making his way toward us. Liam makes it five more feet before Grey spins us around and steals me right from his arms.

โ€œSheโ€™s not skinny-dipping.โ€

My feet hit the floor, and Iโ€™m positioned directly between both my giant boys.

โ€œWell, Van…are we doing this or what?โ€ Liam taunts, completely ignoring Grey.

โ€œNoโ€ rings out over me by Grey.

My face shoots to Greyโ€™s and back to Liamโ€™s, just in time to see Liam strip himself of his shirt.

โ€œCome on, Van. Donโ€™t be a party pooper. Let Grey be grumpy by himself. Have some fun with me.โ€

Damn him. Heโ€™s so fucking cute. I canโ€™t say no to him. My lips wonโ€™t stay neutral; they keep pulling up as Liam takes off his shoes. Then his socks. Dammit.

I turn to Grey, who looks at my smile, then to my eyes. โ€œHell no.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s only fair. We had so much fun on the way here. I mean, it is a party…what happened to โ€˜I wonโ€™t tellโ€™ and โ€˜Have fun, Donovanโ€™?โ€

My feet carry me backward as I reach for Greyโ€™s sweatshirt that Iโ€™m still wearing and peel it over my head.

โ€œYes, Van. Letโ€™s do this!โ€

Liam reaches for his jeans, and I cover my eyes, but Greyโ€™s grumpy voice has me peeking through my fingers.

โ€œLeave your fucking briefs on. She doesnโ€™t need to be traumatized by your small dick.โ€

Liam barks out a laugh. โ€œThat waterโ€™s cold as hell. Weโ€™re both gonna shrivel the fuck up.โ€

I see Grey kick off his sneakers, and I jump up and down in place, clapping before shimmying out of my own pants and pulling my T-shirt off. Iโ€™m left in a lavender lace bra and a white polka-dot G-string. The shirt drops to the ground, and both guys stand there, jeans around their ankles, equal distance apart, staring at me.

โ€œDonโ€™t make this weird. Itโ€™s nothing you havenโ€™t already seen, Iโ€™m sure.โ€

Greyโ€™s jaw tenses, and Liam looks out at the lake full of naked bodies and back to me, as I reach behind to unclasp my bra.

โ€œWhoa, whoa, whoa. Leave the panties and bra on.โ€

โ€œYup,โ€ Grey grits out between his teeth.

I stand shocked by their attitude. โ€œOh my God, seriously? Itโ€™s a body. Theyโ€™re tits.โ€ I grip my breast to emphasize my point. โ€œEvery other person in the world has a pair. Nobody cares.โ€

โ€œWe care,โ€ Grey growls. โ€œYou stay covered.โ€

โ€œThis isnโ€™t Bar-they-lona anymore, Dorothy,โ€ Liam teases, saying Barcelona with a spot-on Spanish lisp.

I narrow my eyes and walk in between them, glaring, and turn away to tiptoe over the grass to stroll out onto the empty deck by myself. They stand there still staring at me, and I want to laugh at how ridiculous theyโ€™re being. Looking back, I know that Iโ€™m a silhouette, so I reach back and unclasp my bra, holding it up and letting it hang from my fingers, yelling out, โ€œI thought you liked bad-decision Donovan.โ€

Trilina Pucci LogoTrilina is an author, wife, and mama to three rowdy kiddos. When she isnโ€™t making grilled cheese sandwiches, she can be found writing saucy novels that titillate and excite her readers.

Pucciโ€™s journey started impulsively. She wanted to check off a box on her bucket list. But what began as fulfillment has become incredibly fulfilling. And now she canโ€™t see her life without her characters, her readers and this community.

She currently resides in Northern California with her Italian stallion and her feral children, where the days are slow and easy and wine pours are heavy.
(Just kidding… maybe.)
