    1. Fabulous… best so far! tortured hearts and selfless love… throw in some action, in and out of the bedroom with three very hot Alpha males… it’s a winner already!If you are into Hot Marines and plenty of smexy Man-Loving, this book can easily be read as a stand aloneI just love, love, love this series and have read it right from the beginning, anticipating every new release and SE Jakes has never failed to disappoint… with Bound for Keeps being the best so far! I picked it up and it was [...]


    2. ***2 Stars***This was my least favorite in the series. When dealing with a threesome relationship, it's tricky finding the right balance between all three men, and unfortunately the balance was off for me here. When you add in a sloppy plot, unfocused pacing and constantly alternating POV's, this book leaves a lot to be desired. However, I will say that as I've come to expect, S.E. Jakes can write some hot and steamy sex scenes!


    3. First, let's start with what I didn't like. NOT A DAMN THING! This book was AWESOME!!! We all know I like my men manly, my violence VIOLENT and my sexwell, I don't know y'all like that! But man, I got it in spades in this book. This is a threesome that worked easy feat, especially since you had a third person joining an established couple. The author really did a great job here. They all brought something unique to the table.Keith - I wanted to scale his 6'5 uber alpha ass like a rock climbing w [...]


    4. Good, but not the strongest book of the series. The villain was a bit thin, and the chemistry between the characters was a bit off in places. I think I needed to see more of a connection between all three of them. Sometimes it felt like the chemistry only worked when they were in pairs. I liked the characters individually, and enjoy their understanding of what makes someone strong, and how to show vulnerability, and that to open up to others is not weakness. I like how this book, and this series [...]


    5. 3.5I enjoyed this but I had to take away .5 for this kink (view spoiler)[ Keith calling Shane "baby boy" yeeaahhhat ain't doing it for me (hide spoiler)] Still it was good story but I wished there could have been an all out menage scene with the three men. Seemed a bit menage-light. :D I liked the men a lot. All of them had very distinct and strong personalities. The villain was a bit thin but I liked the resolution.


    6. A Hearts On Fire ReviewWow, SE Jakes is on book 5 of the Men of Honor series and she continues to pack a solid and erotic punch. It's menage time and let me say, it was quite the ride. :P"Bound For Keeps" maintains the sexy, a little dark & gritty vibe with three damaged alpha former soldiers, Shane, Reed & Keith. Reed and Keith are still grieving for their dead third and are preparing a Christmas Eve dinner in remembrance of their lover, Bobby. The couple get a surprise at their door in [...]


    7. 1.5 StarsUnfortunately, I once again find myself in the minority because I didn't like this book. Keith is a former marine turned mercenary and a dom. Johnny Lou Reed is a former Army Ranger, a doctor, and a sub. Keith and Reed are still grieving over the loss of their third to prostate cancer. Then on a stormy Christmas Eve, a mysterious, former Army Ranger collapses on their doorstep. Shane, however, has secrets that run deep and a killer after him. The three fall for each other but will have [...]


    8. Did you ever wish a book would not end? Of course you have and so have I. This is one of them. I was so sorry to see it end, that I felt a prickling behind my eyes. This is the best of the series to me. It had everything I wanted in a story. We have mysterious stranger Shane that shows up at the cabin of Keith and Reed in the mists of a terrible snowstorm. He is a hunted, haunted man who tumbles into the home of two other haunted men. The mystery of Shane unfolds as he recovers from near death w [...]


    9. Wow, I was salivating at how much I loved this book, all ready to put it on my favorites shelf, maybe even my fuck yeah, 5+ stars shelf when I was finished. But then the ending happened! What a let down. So incredibly anti-climatic. Very unsatisfying. I even knocked a star off because I was so disappointed. Fabulous book about 3 military men who find love with each other, and I am SUPER PICKY about threesome books, but the ending wreaked it for me.I can still recommend this book to folks who lik [...]


    10. Another winning read for me! Gotta say I am loving hard edged alpha men, throw in a menage into the story and I am in heaven.Oh yes!!In this story we have established couple Keith and Reed who have lost their third to cancer. Landing on their doorstep (with a thud actually) is Shane. Shane is badly hurt and they nurse him back to health. This story is about secrets, passion (OMG was it hot) and scars. I loved the action in this one and the dialogue between the 3 characters. I fell into their sto [...]


    11. 3.5 stars. This was not my favorite, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. It seemed to take forever to get to the truth about Shane. I liked seeing them help each other deal with the PTSD episodes, and when they were all together or together as twosomes, things were pretty hot. I thought the Guthrie deal was a little rushed at the end. I still love this series and am more than ready for more Prophet.


    12. This newest installment of the Men of Honor series is hot, intense, and has some amazing characters whose past moved me to tears. A threesome, like in the second book, these men carry a ton of baggage each need to deal with before they can become a true triad. Their challenges are very similar, all related to PTSD and their pasts, and knowing the others' problems helps them deal and respect what each goes through.Shane is the new element. An ex-Army Ranger, he stumbles into Keith and Reed's home [...]


    13. *1.5*Keith, Reed and Shane’s relationship follows the guidelines for this series impeccably, and by now, I feel pretty much like I know exactly what’s going to happen. Unfortunately for me, I realized that the “damaged, über-tough men with LOADS of feelings”-concept is slowly starting to get on my nerves. I also realized that I’m feeling dumber the more of this series I read. It’s probably because of all the forehead slapping. There is just so much telling me how extremely tough the [...]


    14. ~ ~ ~Cant.Stop.Here.More, more, moreI'm moving right along to Bound To Break(arc) I just gotta have it all. Oh, but I do have to say that SE Jakes writes one hell of a menage. She doesn't slack on giving me the emotion and the reason for both the menage and the bdsm. Just great!~ ~ ~Take a look at my Male/Male Romance Book Blog:attentionisarbitrary


    15. DNF @ 44%Ridiculous -- repetition; telling never showing; lack of research and plausibility; disconnected dialogue; fake, wanna-be D/s; anorexically-thin plot line; waste of my time when there are other books on which I could be spending my time. I am never considering popular reviews again.


    16. Different from the other books of the series so far - less sex and more plot, I liked it.The characters were very interesting and pretty deep, with great relationships building throughout the book. I was sorry to see the story end.


    17. Slick‘s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4 StarsSometimes you read a book that’s hard to define. One that makes you think, one that makes you cringe, one that makes you question, and one that makes you realize sometimes you find the right person or persons when you least expect to. Bound For Keeps is a remarkable story of three men brought together by chance but who stay together out of love.Keith and Reed have been together for a number of years and recently lost their third pa [...]


    18. Have I mentioned that I have a weak spot for poly relationships in fic?Because I have a serious weak spot for poly relationships in fic.Okay so first things first: I want to climb Keith like a tree. Just throw myself at that big old mountain of a man and work him like I'm a stripper, he's a pole and the rent is due tomorrow. Justwd Jesus I need a moment. *Clears throat* Anywaye book. The book is fabulous. Keith and Reed are two men who are in a committed, loving relationship. When the book opens [...]


    19. AWESOME story.I loved this installment of the Men of Honor series. Once again SE has created completely believable and lovable characters. I think that one of the reasons the characters in SE's books are so real is because they are not perfect, they all have some flaws and to a certain degree (some more than others) have been damaged by life. I am not going to tell you any details about this story, the blurb does a good job of that, as I don't want to spoil the story for youever I will say that [...]


    20. Oh I liked it just fine. The only problem I got was fewer threesomes than Bound by Law even if the story was rather more heartbreaking. The suspense was only happened almost at the end of the book so like 80 to 90% was more like relationship building and fucking each other. This book could have been full five stars if there'd been DOUBLE FUCKING PENETRATION like it had in Bound by Law (yes I must admit that's the first thing I look for whenever I read MMM romance) And oh Elijah "PROPHET" Drews a [...]


    21. Strong starting with great characters - conclusion is a bit weak and underwhelming but the relationship between the three men really flowed well and I found it very believable. The circumstances are sort of "get out" but the rest is fine. Shane was engaging - Keith and Reed solid. I would have liked more exploration by Reed and Shane as they have similar pasts in some ways. I didn't really understand why Shane was still running - that part didn't make a lot of sense to me. Sex was hot, menage wa [...]


    22. This review is for all the books in this series.I read this series back to back, with only a quick re-read of a favourite in the middle. I was trying to make these books last, but it didn't really work. I had them all read in less then a week.All of the books in this series were m/m or m/m/m. They all involved military man of some description. They were all nice and steamy. I can't pick a favourite, and it doesn't worry me. I loved them all, and all of them will end up on my re-read shelf at som [...]


    23. SE Jakes has written a fabulous one here. I loved the menage factorxy sexy! The story of a man, Shane with a past and full of secrets who stumbles on an established partnership of two strong men, Keith and Reed, who are mourning the loss of their third partner. The thing that got me was the PTSD storyline. This was wonderfully written and accurate. Jakes manages to get you hooked on the plot quick and it doesn't disappoint. My favorite character was Keith, I just love a strong alpha male and dom [...]


    24. Another menage! Wow S.E. Jakes has a thing for menages and she knows how to write one. I love the military men S.E. Jakes creates in this series and Keith, Reed and Shane are one of my favorite threesomes.This is a threesome that workest an easy task, especially since a third person is joining an established couple and the guys are sharing bad experiences. Nonetheless their attraction finally leads to a strong relationship.In my opinion the best volume of the series so far. Can't wait for the 6t [...]


    25. This was a hard one for me because I LOVE this author's books and the writing was stellar as always. Threesomes are hard and I felt this one was a bit lopsided and I had a hard time with that. I felt like one of the guys was left out a lot physically from both and emotionally from one character. It's probably just a personal thing though! S.E. Jakes is a great writer and I am still a huge fan of this series. Book two in this series, Bound by Law is one of my favorite books.


    26. Nice Read~I love the Christmas "inn" taleThe storyline was wonderful, and this book was heart warming. All the MCs were cleverly built, and I liked how they could work together in sync. I hope we get more of these guys. I think the only thing I would change is how they fell in loveat part was a wee bit offt and still, this was a nice read ;-)


    27. Two mercenaries who are life partners, grieving their dead third have a Christmas surprise on their doorstep. This is a decent read because this author is talented in bringing these three characters to life. The story isn't really new and the ending feels rushed. That always leaves me feeling like a door was slammed in my face. Does my nose look broken?It's a sweet love story with lots of sex and several ménage scenes.


    28. Wow, and wow again. I enjoyed this book best of all the author's previous stories. It is more of a 4.5 because of some of the things I will list below, but over all, a great read, especially for, what to me, was a fairly short book.I didn't think it would happen, but this book made me a bit more excited about the series again. It was not as formulaic as the previous books, at least not to me, and that is what I think this series needed. The author has gotten smoother with the way she builds the [...]


    29. This falls into my happy, horny, enjoyable pile. :D There's a really nice erotic edge to this story without tipping over into their being all erotica and no story. I appreciate this story as a menage that works too. Things weren't perfect smooth sailing with these three, but it was more believable for the few bumps in the road. Keith Masters and Johnny Lou Reed have been through buckets of things together. They've been together as a couple for 8 years, and they've been through the death of their [...]


    30. Wow, what can I say! It's SE Jakes, it's alpha dudes, it's 3somes, it's steaming, intense, hot m/m action. I swear, she has this down pat and I'm not sure how.From someone who's been there, done that, she certainly has the dynamics pretty well right. The interaction between the three of them letting the new partner in the interplay between the two original partners add to that the story line of the previous member of the triad and it's a home run!Not to mention the whole backline story of Guthri [...]
