Emma is perfectly content with her life.  She likes her job as a waitress at the local bar.  So she doesn’t have a man, and her social life is non-existent - who cares?  She has, however, always been interested in her boss Will.  Who is unattainable for two reasons he’s gay and has been with his lover, Paul, for years.

Will and Paul have a satisfying long-standing relationship, but Will finds himself attracted to Emma and doesn’t know what to do about it.  It’s been hard enough to finally find acceptance as a gay couple in their small town.  There is no way to make this work and he is not going to risk Paul, whom he loves so much, in trying to satisfy his attraction for Emma.

Paul has always been aware that Emma lusted after Will, everyone can tell but Will himself.  When he becomes conscious that Will is also attracted to Emma he has a great idea that will make them all happy.  The question is…will Emma and Will cooperate with him in making all their dreams come true?

Something More is a story of how sometimes love can be found in the most unconventional arrangements.  Although the obstacles presented seemed realistic in the context of the storyline, the resolution of these issues were so swift as to be unrealistic.  The sensuality of the story was unfortunately lost in the clinical terms used by the author in most of her descriptions of the erotic moments shared by the trio.  Finally, the inconsistency of small details was oftentimes distracting and kept me from becoming as invested in the characters as I might have been.

Something More is a book that you might want to pick up for a moment when you want a random read when nothing else is available.  However, if you are looking for an engaging erotic romance book about an M/M/F ménage I just can’t bring myself to truly recommending it.
