Scott and Chris have been lovers a long time. While they have their ups and downs, they love each other and are as solid as a rock. Enter Caleb. He’s friends with Scott and Chris’ friend Jason. When the three of them meet they hit it off and start spending a lot of time together. Caleb is attracted to both Chris and Scott, and tension is starting to build between them, then Scott and Chris let Caleb know they’re attracted to him too. Their unconventional relationship won’t be easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.

The Strongest Shape is one of the best stories I have read all year. It has outstanding characterization, a realistic storyline, and three amazing guys. (Who have incredibly hot sex.)  Scott and Chris’ relationship is very strong, and I wondered and worried if Caleb would be a third wheel, but he quickly becomes a part of them, and then they become three. At one point, Scott sends Caleb a surprise while Caleb is in New York, alone. It took my breath away. Literally. It’s simply a perfect moment. The Strongest Shape is so much more than an erotic ménage. It’s fun, achingly tender, full of angst, and extremely well written. Chris’ possessiveness is very sexy. It comes from his deep love for his men.  Scott’s level headedness is what they need when emotions run high, and Caleb balances them all out. He’s the glue that holds them together. Scott, Chris, and Caleb fit like pieces of a puzzle. Their relationship is perfect. There were times I laughed with them and times I cried with them, and by the end, I fell in love with them.
