Review: Four by S.C. Daiko

*****4.5 Stars*****

Max, Lauren and Steve are back and just as hot as they were in Three. Four picks up right where Three left off. Our trio have been living the dream in their passionate and unconventional relationship. They are deeply in love and making plans for the future, which include trying for a baby. Things could not be more perfect, but as we all know, life and love rarely go exactly as planned. Enter, James, an old friend of Steve. He's in town and he comes with an agenda that could tear the lovers apart. Soon, the Steve they know and love changes into someone almost unrecognizable. Can their love and passion keep their relationship strong or are some things destined to not last?
Where Three was all about explosive sex and intense passion, Four is more about the emotional impact one faces in a relationship and when faced with people's past. Don't get me wrong, there is certainly plenty hot and sexy bdsm in this book, but it was so much more emotional. Three had a lighter feel to it and this one was much deeper and emotional. In fact a few sections had me a bit of a basketcase. My heart absolutely broke for the characters. I'm being especially vague because there were some twists in this book I don't want to spoil. I will say suggest that you have tissues handy! I also will say that I loved this book even more than its predecessor. The only reason I took off a half star was because I really wanted to get inside Steve's head. We get dual povs from Max and Lauren and I really was wishing it was three povs. While this is billed and in theory could be read as a standalone, I strongly encourage you to read Three first for the full impact (and emotional turmoil) of this story.

It's been a year since Max and I overcame our commitment fears and chased away our demons, a year in a blissful poly relationship with Steve. And now we’re all set to become four.
It should be the best time of my life, of our lives; trying for a baby with the two hot men who keep me warm at night. 
But when Steve’s friend James arrives from London, an over-the-top-theatrical scene player with his own agenda, and a whole lotta history just waiting to reignite, Steve suddenly doesn’t seem like the guy we fell in love with. 
He’s changing, morphing into a different man before our eyes.

Lauren Price is happy living with the two men she loves and life couldn’t be any sweeter. What started as just a little fun a year ago – a girl, two guys, and a whole lot of sex – has become a deep three-way love she hopes will last forever. 
They want to be a four – Max, Lauren, Steve and their unborn baby. That’s what they said, that’s what they planned. 
But life in love doesn’t follow the rules, and soon four doesn’t look quite like the three-plus-one Lauren intended it to be.

Although a sequel to “Three”, S. C. Daiko’s first Erotic Menage Romance, “Four” is a standalone story and, like its predecessor, contains vivid erotica and scenes involving MF, MFM, MMF, MM and some BDSM. All consensual, but most definitely 18+ only.
