    So, after reading book 1, I knew I'd be interested in Cody who was harboring supposedly unrequited feelings for his best friend Issac. Both were scared to make a move on the other. Cody, due to severe sexual abuse during his childhood and Issac because he knew Cody could never stand his touch. Each accepting they could only be friends. Then in steps Jonah, older and a counselor, who is attracted to them both.I enjoyed this one more than book 1 but I still think there was way too much sex...yes, I just said that...again. It started out a lot better because of Cody's problem, so they were left actually getting to know each other instead of having sex. The problem came in when they do get around to the sex. Then it was pages and pages of sex scenes. A couple pages of talking, then they were having sex again. (And miraculously Cody is cured after years of not being able to stand touch 🙄) Now, the author can write some hot sex scenes for sure. But I really need some actual time for them communicating. Even the epilogue, a few pages of them talking about what their plans are then more sex. I didn't need the sex scene in my epilogue. So needless to say, I started skimming the sex scenes. I don't like to have to do that.And then, ugh! Jonah decides he knows what is best for the other two and can read their minds and the future. I absolutely HATE that in a story. Just pisses me off. It's only to create a little drama but it just annoys me.I'm on the fence with the next book. I would love to read Zander's story but honestly, I'm getting to where I need a little more than sex in my reading.

    ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Handsome young man in a white t-shirt. Same background as Book 1 ties the two together. Scrawling script font is messy and not clean. Author font is strong and bold.

With much less coaxing and easing into it than I ever imagined, Cody went from an abused, fearful, panic attacks and nightmares-ridden, twenty-one-year-old virgin to a slightly reserved, but much more demanding, insatiable lover of not only one, but two men. I also felt the flip in Jonah. He started out confident and strong, but suddenly - without provocation or sound reason - became insecure. For a man who studied psychology and was now an abuse counselor at Open Arms, it was rather unpleasant to see this shift in his mentality. The only character that seemed to remain steady and supportive was Isaac. A few secondary characters from The Den and Open Arms had small secondary roles in this story, leaving the majority of the page time focused on the trio, usually in private and in some form of intimacy. In the background, there were a few things happening with some of the Open Arms residents, as well as the break-in and stolen files from Galen's office. The plot was good, but not as strong as the first book - in my opinion. The big conflict felt a little disjointed and the resolve seemed to come with little more than a "shrug it off" attitude, but the story as a whole still flowed and the pages kept turning at a nice pace. Some minor predictability was present, but not enough to deter a reader from enjoying the plot. The conclusion was solid. There was an epilogue that contained a quickie catch-up on Blaze and Galen as well as a satisfying enough HEA for Cody, Isaac, and Jonah. The book also included a sneak peek into book 3, BREAKING FREE, featuring Zander..Rating: [R] ~ Score: 3.85 ~ Stars: 4==========================⭐ ⭐ **** Disclosure of Material: I received a copy of this book from Embrace the Rainbow Promotions and the Author/Publisher with the hope that I would voluntarily leave unbiased and unsolicited feedback.

    DNF 75% no rating -personal pet peeve alert-I liked the start of this. The writing was good. It had me smiling. Curious. Feeling empathy for Cody and Isaac who so obviously liked each other but for "reasons" weren't together. And then we met Jonah. He's a nice guy, etc, etc, etc... But...(view spoiler)[They came together a little too fast IMO. With Cody's sexual issues being a big burden on his year long platonic friendship with Isaac, he was seemingly cured of his sexual hang ups after 2 rounds of threesome sex and a nice dinner. Well, that's all good and well and surprisingly up to this point I'm still on board. But now, out of the blue, Jonah is worrying he's just a third wheel, they don't love him, can't love him, he's just killing time till they break his heart. OMFG- stop it. Stop it now. You're 30 years old FFS. Have a grown up conversation. It's not even like they had a misunderstanding. He just all of a sudden thinks it. This unfortunately is my tipping point. Drama for the sake of drama. Filler to move the story along. (hide spoiler)]It irks me to come so far and not finish it. Maybe I'll come back to it.

    This story had my attention with the blurb that gives 3 different characters’ points of view—M/M/M is a favorite of mine, as long as all of the characters in the relationship have plenty of depth and are all given equal attention in the story. The author did a great job of this with Cody, Isaac and Jonah—none of them were shortchanged, and getting to see everything from all three points of view gave so much more insight into their relationship, emotions and feelings.You can’t not feel for Cody. He’s been through too much in his young life, through things that no one—especially a young child—should ever have to go through. It’s very hard to read about his past (be warned it can be a trigger for some readers, please read the trigger warnings at the front of the book before you start to read), and my heart was breaking for him hearing about it. Isaac’s past was nothing like Cody’s, though he does have family issues that will draw your sympathy. I loved how patient and caring he was with Cody, you really can tell just how much he loves him and wants him to heal. He’s willing to set aside his feelings to help Cody, even if it means not being together in the way that he would want.Jonah has had a really good upbringing with a large, loving family. Being drawn to both Cody and Isaac, and having them both reciprocate is like a dream come true for him—though he’s just waiting for it all to evaporate based on his assumptions that the two of them won't need him in the long term. I was a tiny bit frustrated with him assuming things instead of talking to them, that kind of formed a little disconnect for me with him just accepting that he wouldn’t be with them for long.The chemistry between all three men—as separate couples and as a threesome—is blatantly obvious, and is beyond scorching hot. Their physically intimate scenes are sensual, erotic and frankly quite stimulating for a reader. And they all are compatible emotionally as well—something that helps contribute to Cody’s healing. A lot of their interaction does concentrate on the physical, and on Jonah and Isaac helping Cody to become more comfortable with physical intimacy.I really enjoyed this story, though at times Jonah's thoughts toward what would eventually happen in their relationship frustrated me. I would have liked to see a bit more development of their relationship beyond the physical to be able to see more of the emotional side of things grow between them. Healing Him was a 4-star read for me, and while it is part of a series it can definitely be read as a standalone…though I do recommend reading All In to get Blaze and Galen’s story. This book is meant strictly for readers 18+ for adult language, mentions of trigger topics involving a young child, and explicit sexual content.

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4.5 starsThis book follows the first in the series, All In, and a group of friends that work at a bar called The Den. When this story first opens, Blaze from the first book is on page right away and I enjoyed that book so much it was difficult to not want to see more of Blaze and Galen. But the author takes three main characters here and brings them together almost effortlessly and for most of the book there is little drama in having Cody, Isaac, and Jonah work as a single unit. It didn’t take long at all until I was enjoying this book just as much as the first. There was lots of drama leading up to the three men getting together that we learn about in an overview style, but here, the author does an excellent job of showing how the three of them can not only come together, but stay together as well.Cody and Issac have a history as they are best friends. Cody is in love with Isaac, but he can’t act on it. Cody suffered horrible and traumatic abuse at an age where he was too young to even understand what was happening to him and as a result cannot allow people to touch him. He has been to therapy and has been working on getting his life together, but having any kind of physical relationship seems insurmountable to him. Isaac wants more, but would never push Cody and just wants to take care of him in any way possible.Jonah is the missing element that the men need. Cody and Isaac are just at the point where they are admitting their feelings when they meet Jonah. Jonah is older and more experienced then both Cody and Isaac and his professional background allows him to understand Cody. It’s not a quick magical fix here. Cody has serious issues and the men take tentative steps toward each as Cody gets comfortable with touch, but it worked for me here. Once they get going though, whew, this book has many erotic scenes as the men care for each other.Read Michelle's review in its entirety here.

    3.5 starsThis is the story of how Cody, an abuse survivor, learned to trust that not everyone wanted to hurt him sexually. He has been in love with his best friend Isaac since they met, but it's not until they meet Jonah, does he get the courage to confess his feelings. The three are equally attracted to each other, so they agree to date. Cody has had tons of therapy since being sexually abused as a child, but it wasn't until meeting his men that he felt like he could be sexually active. Isaac has been working with him to get used to touch, and it was sweet when they share Codys first kiss. They let Cody set the pace, but he doesn't try to prevent them from having fun together. He starts off just watching them, and gradually gets comfortable to participate. I enjoyed this, but I thought it was a little long and I got bored in a few places. I liked that no one had a magic dick, and Cody wasn't healed overnight. I loved that everyone was equal, and that they tried not to leave anyone out.*ARC provided by author

    3.5 stars - This was a sweet story about Cody, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse who never thought he would be able to experience or feel intimacy or touch again. He is in love with his best friend, Isaac, but due to his issues, he has kept his feelings to himself. Issac also has feelings for Cody, but holds them back and tries to be happy with their friendship but does whatever he can to help Cody get over his issues. He basically follows Cody’s lead with everything to help Cody get used to touch, etc. a little at a time.But then Cody meets Jonah, a counselor at the shelter/center where he volunteers, the same center which saved him when he needed it. They have an immediate connection, but Cody’s issues prevent him from pursuing anything more than some light flirting. When Jonah stops in at the bar where Cody works, he is introduced to Cody’s bff, Isaac, and they hit it off.It doesn’t take long for them to hook up, but neither wants to pursue anything that might hurt Cody. After some assurances, the three decide to all be together though they are all aware of Cody’s limitations. Jonah and Isaac show Cody how different sex can be from what he knows, all of which is not good. He learns how good it can be and how much pleasure can actually be felt by all involved. Though it doesn’t happen overnight, and rightfully so, the three strengthen their bond little by little as the trust grows alongside their feelings.I enjoyed watching Cody get a second chance at life with the help of his best friend and then lover with Jonah alongside. There was some concern by Jonah about being a third wheel and not sharing the history that Cody and Isaac already had, but they made sure Jonah’s concerns were addressed and didn’t let him push them away for too long before setting it all straight. There were times where it felt like Jonah was the younger immature one of the three, but all in all, this was an enjoyable menage where all three participants were important to the relationship.Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.

    I’m partial to MMM ménages, when they’re well executed. Healing Him was a good example. Cody, Isaac, and Jonah were sweet together, and their relationship made sense (which isn’t always the case with MMM). Cody’s journey especially was beautiful, as being with Isaac and Jonah helped him heal (hence the title) and regain confidence, both in a sexual sense, as in relationships and life in general.Despite Cody’s troubled and traumatized past, this book is relatively low on angst. From reading the blurb I had expected more. That left me with desiring a bit more tension at times, as the overall sense of conflict and tension was low. Jonah had a bit of a ‘moment’ towards the end where he doubted if he was the odd man out, but that, too resolved quickly. It makes this a sweet read, despite the hot sex scenes. Since I had recently had read some books that were way more gritty, dark, and emotional, this was a welcome reprieve.I hadn’t read the first book in The Den Boys Series. This is a stand-alone novel, but I do think it would have helped to understand some things better, and especially help keep the many men that were introduced apart. I’ll have to go back and read it, that’s for sure.My biggest ‘gripe’ was that Healing Him was too short. I would have loved to see more character development in each of the three characters. This is always tricky with MMM because you have to divide the ‘time’ between three instead of two characters. Cody was the most developed out of these three, but Isaac and Jonah especially stayed a bit shallow. Some scenes that were now condensed into a summary could have been fleshed out, giving us more insights into each of the characters.(I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a brutally honest review.

    Each chapter is a POV which helps you understand each characters struggles.Cody - an 21yr old abuse victim, who can't bare to be touched but so desperately wants his best friend Isaac, who he is madly in love with, to touch him. Isaac - a 24yr old construction worker who's deeply in love with Cody and wants to touch and help heal him.Jonah - a teen counselor who feels a deep connection with first Cody when he sees him come into the Open Arms then Isaac who he meets in The Den.Isaac and Jonah work together so Cody understands that touch and sexual feelings can be loving and not just abusive. This was written very well and emotional at times.I am glad they got their HEA! I have not read book 1 but look toward to book 3!

    4 out of 5 starsIsaac, a construction worker, Jonah, a teen counselor, and Cody, an abuse victim, all come together in this novel to form a trio of love. I enjoyed this story because I felt like the characters were all relatable and loving. I enjoyed the relationship between Isaac and Cody and how close they were. Jonah added so much to their relationship. BUT I struggled with how quickly Cody changed from no physical contact to being surrounded and handled a lot without much trouble. I expected Jonah’s role to be more counselor like in the bedroom as well. All that said, I enjoyed this story and was pleased with how it played out. *** I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***

I loved Cody and Isaac and how close they were and then you throw in Jonah and it was perfect. I loved how patient and kind they were with Cody and his issues. These three men are just wonderful together and I loved how loving and caring they were to each other. It was super sweet and super hot.

    This is the second book in The Den Boys series, but reads fine as a standalone.Cody is a 21 year old man who has just gotten his first apartment, and thrives in his job as a bartender at The Den. He's a survivor of forced child prostitution and abuse, and fled the foster care system before getting help and counseling at Open Arms, an LGBT-centered shelter in his town. It's where he met the owner of The Den, who hired him and set him up with living arrangements. Cody suffers nightmares of his abuse, and has an aversion to touch that he's been working through slowly and carefully with his best friend, Isaac. And, Cody has a big crush on Isaac, though he's sure he can't be a real partner for him. He's never even had a first kiss, let alone a voluntary sexual encounter, and the idea of being physical with anyone induces panic-attacks and guilt.Isaac is gone over Cody, but he's content with the close friendship they have developed if that's all Cody can ever handle. He knows some of Cody's history and has been instigating little touches and platonic contact at Cody's request for the past year. That said, when Isaac meets the newest counselor at Open Arms, Jonah, who's come to visit Cody at The Den, Isaac isn't a little turned on. He's a lot. And Jonah, well, he can't get over how sexy Cody and Isaac are. He expects they are a couple, but he's happy to go home with Isaac when Isaac admits to being single.Cody is a little sad that Isaac and Jonah might hook up, but he's confused regarding how aroused that prospect makes him. He's hardly noticed attraction for himself, but the idea of Isaac and Jonah together pushed all his "on" buttons. When he and Isaac discuss it, Isaac's floored that Cody has feelings for him, and he's overjoyed when Cody wants to kiss him! Their discussions lead to more than kissing--Jonah's attracted to both Cody and Issac, and is down for expanding their sexytimes, to allow Cody to watch, and participate as much as he can.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjlSiA...Yep, sexual healing is the nature of this book. I'll be truthful, this one is all about the feels, and getting it on. There were some accessory intrigues, and some other characters do interact with our budding trio, but it's really focused on how they can fashion a relationship that counts them as equal shares in the experience. You're going to want to keep a squeegee handy so all the steam doesn't cloud the screen. I liked how carefully Jonah and Isaac were with Cody, and how they let him join them at his pace. For me, considering how pervasive and horrific the abuse Cody suffered, I though he came around a little quicker than I'd expected. Jonah has some reservations, too, thinking he's just a passing fancy for Cody and Isaac. He's been broken-hearted by a couple guys and is sure they won't want him around long-term either. It's sweet when they convince him it's not true.This one ends with an HEA, times three, and I liked this story enough to want to read new books down the road, especially whenever Isaac's twin Noah get his own book.

    I've received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review! Healing him is a story that doesn't just revolve around one character, but three. Cody, Issac and Jonah. There very different men, all with complex lives yet they entwine so well! It also helped clear the confusion between chapters, because their brains worked so differently. Cody for instance comes from one of the worst, he's still in the healing stages if you ask me. Now I don't want to give away too much, but his story hits you in the gut. Hard. I found myself having to blink away the moisture a few times because you do feel for him.Then comes Issac, a friend, THE best friend. Now this easily could've been a story with heavy angst, does he like me? Do I like him? Ect, and so on and so on. But that wasn't the case when it comes Issac. He is direct when he needs to be. About his feelings, Cody's feelings, Jonah's feelings. So having someone like Isaac around really makes things convenient to keep the story moving along. Again, this guy also has a story, but again I don't wanna spoil it!Jonah on the other hand, hasn't experienced the horrors of what child go through, but he has seen it, on many of the faces he helps look after. Maybe there was something once, but that would be a spoiler as well. I really liked being in his head the most. He's had his own share of troubles, but he's conquered it. Now lets back pedal a little bit here to the story in general. At first I found it a little fast paced. Like how fast the characters fall for each other. Sure they questioned themselves about having lusty feelings for two men at the same time, but it was how it was written, a semi slow burn for each other. That's what kept me invested even though I can't be 100% convinced. I was hoping for a little... more. But hey, it still works in my opinion. I really liked how Isaac kept things in gear. Honestly, I do find him the glue that keeps together. Jonah kind of overthinks things but then again, that's all of us. Jonah didn't want to scare Cody away. But speaking of Isaac and Jonah. Oh my lord... the scene of those two getting it on with Cody watching... let's just say I had to make sure I was alone in the room while reading that. It was intense for me, and not something I get to read too often. There was just a tad too much sex and not enough romance for me, but that's just me. I still find it a wonderful read, because there's not very many m/m/m romances out there in world. At least not the kind that touches some serious topics such as this book does. For some, Healing Him might be a lot to take in, but I recommend everyone should at least try it. If I could get extra specific about how to rate this book, it would be in the 4.1-4.2 range. I just wanted a bit more romance, more getting to know each other. A story of how not only have Cody and Isaac fallen for each other, but how they fell Jonah as well. But other than that, I really can't complain. If that was a complaint at all. I was still invested in this story enough to read it in the span of 2 days.

    Beautiful story with even pacing that keeps you turning the pages. Not overly angsty, yet it’s an emotional story. As you read all that happened to Cody your greatest wish is for healing for him. And to heal it will take not one but two men. Isaac, his best friend, whom he’s loved forever. But he’s so damaged he can’t handle being touched and that makes it hard to have a relationship. So as much as he wants Isaac, he never does anything about it. Isaac has loved Cody from afar. He knows enough about the abuse Cody endured that he understands Cody may never get over it. And he’s okay with that, he’ll take what he can of Cody, even if it’s only friendship. While waiting at the bar Cody works at he meets Jonah and has the same attraction to him as he does to Cody.Abuse counselor Jonah stops by the bar Cody is working at and meets Isaac. The attraction is instant. But there’s an attraction to Cody too. And so the story goes as both Isaac and Jonah work to help Cody heal. The sex on the page is hot, hot, hot. But it works to move the story along as the three men work toward healing Cody and making their poly relationship work for them.Now this is fiction and timelines, relationship and much more are condensed. I understand this, but even so I thought that Cody’s transformation from scared ‘don’t touch me’ to being a part of the sex between all three moved too fast. Isaac stayed steady as a character. Jonah was such a self-confident, mature and calming influence through most of the book but towards the end he changes some and is a bit of an insecure person.Overall, I truly enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to the next book. While this is book two in the series, it does work as a standalone. But I do recommend reading the books in order so that you fully enjoy the cast of characters that show up here besides the main three. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Healing Him by A.T. Brennan was book two in The Den Boys series. If you want a sweet story of healing and companionship, this book will be just what you need!Cody’s gone through a lot and it’s left emotional scars on him. He can’t stand to be touched, but what happens when you fall for not only one guy but two? Isaac’s had it bad for his friend, Cody, but he doesn’t want to rush things and leave Cody running scared. Enter Jonah, a counselor at a shelter for LGBT youth. When he meets the two sweet boys, Jonah’s done for. But can three people make it as a trio?I really like how this story is structured. We have three guys who have been through the emotional wringer. I enjoyed watching what Open Arms does, and it’s such an integral part of their journey.It’s definitely lust at first sight. They all have this immense attraction/connection, and this did and didn’t work for me. In Cody’s case, it went a bit fast. He’s got the darkest backstory of the three and yet, he overcame his fears a bit too early and especially with this overwhelming sexual connection.On the other hand, there’s not a lot of angst in this story. It’s simply traversing the dynamics and how they all come together. There’s also so much steam! Which I loved because heck, yes! This was my first read from A.T. Brennan, and all of these characters just tugged at me. A lot of sweet, plenty of heat, and a whole lotta charm made this a great, one-sitting read.3.5 stars!I voluntarily reviewed an arc via the author in exchange for an honest review.

    ღღ´¨)4.5 Healing Stars.¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)(¸.•´ (¸.•` ღ"Three Hearts, One Love."I love unconventional relationships, and a triad in our society is as unconventional as you can get. There is always the dynamics of how three will fit, if someone feels left out, how friends and family perseve it all. Then there is all the other nuances that creep up. Insecurities of even the strongest person, finding yourself, making it work. I thought I had loved Blaze's and Galen's story. But book two stole my heart. It showed growth, understanding and the will to put the past behind and look forward to the future. It may have been a bit unrealistic how fast this took place, but come on, fiction. Three different men, set on a path that would bring them love and a reason to go on. I love character growth in my reads and much was shown in Cody as he fought to become a new man. After his innocence had been stolen, he was left floundering and the author made such a vulnerable soul grow and beacon. Even in an obscure amount of time, it was good to hear him say: "And it's not just Isaac and Jonah. It's me too. They helped me trust, to let go of some of that fear, but I did the rest. It feels good to finally be in control of my own head."Yes, Isaac was Cody's soulmate, having loved him for a while. But Jonah seemed to complete both men and added a depth to the relationship he had no idea was possible. Vulnerability aside, it was a work in progress and after much ado about nothing, these men crossed the line into forever. Highly recommended with encouragement to jump into this sweet series from the start. I promise you won't be disappointed. I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from the author.

    This is the second book in The Den Boys Series. What an engrossing book the writing was great. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters likeable. The characters were well developed and thought out. Cody, Isaac and Jonah are the MC’s of this book. There was humor, a bar, a shelter, a break in, a pimp, a threesome, trust, love, friendship, brothers and so much more in this book.Here is a quote from the book, “Making good use of your time off, are we?” I asked teasingly. “If you call gaming and sleeping in making good use, the you betcha.” “As long as you’re enjoying yourself.” I chuckled. “So, I talked to Cody last night.” “Oh? My heart sank at the tone of his voice. He sounded serious, and serious usually didn’t work out so well for me. “It was a little surreal,” he said after a pause. “What do you mean?” “He admitted that he has feelings for me.”. There is more but you will need to read the book which I can highly recommend. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

    The start of this story is a little bit difficult to believe: instalust for two men after just a few looks and small talk - pretty romantic but felt quite unbelievable. However, once the three men decided to give it a try (also in this case, the decision was taken pretty quick and without major concerns), the story developed and the issues and concerns faced by the three men were nothing simple and easygoing. As mentioned by the author at the beginning of the book, there are some sensitive subjects and themes, but they perfectly fit in the story line - Cody was almost over his problems, when Jonah arrived and I liked the fact that Jonah never had to act as a counsellor, but always as a friend and lover. Cody needed a love relationship and not another psychiatrist. So the triggers were an important factor but they dissolved and become the background for a wonderful story of love, friendship, trust and understanding.

    4.3*Three hearts, one love <3This is an amazing story about fighting against your insecurities twords your true love, which sometimes happens to be made out of three hearts.Cody, which we briefly met in the first book, has an amazing and important journey to rediscover himself after a very rough childhood, one that left him broken in too many ways. However, with Isaac's help, he continues to make tiny steps forward. Until he meets Jonah.None of them expected it, their attraction to each other and the fact ones attraction for two other men can be so powerful and life changing.All 3 have their own past and insecurities to get over before they can truly become one love.Cody and Isaac's first kiss almost brought me to tears, Isaac and Jonah's first intimate encounter was so intense, but the three of them together? You might have to take a break to fan yourself!

    I love menage romance and Jonah, Isaac and Cody were sweet. I like that there’s always some kind of friction on figuring out how three can be together considering jealousy, time and differences between them. It seems that it’s all about healing Cody and Cody definitely grew into his own and learned to move forward and Isaac got a chance to be who he feels most comfortable as. And Jonah had surprising issues to deal with considering he presents himself so confidently.I thought Cody moved from untouchable to insatiable fast, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment and to be fair to Cody, he had been in love with Isaac for a while and maybe he just needed something to help him move forward.I would definitely recommend this story.

    I did enjoy this story, while it dealt with a very horrible subject, I think the author handled the relationship between the three men wonderfully. To take Cody and Isaac from friends to lovers while pulling Jonah in was tricky. I did think Cody went from not being able to be touched to being very hands on rather quickly but you did get the sense that he loved Isaac very much. While MMM are not my normal favorite I thought this book was very sweet and loving. I did feel that Jonah, the oldest of the guys, was the most insecure of the three. There were a few unrealistic parts of the story but overall it was not a bad read.

    **Possible Spoilers**I enjoyed this second book in the Den Boys series. Cody is just precious. Isaac is steadfast, considerate and patient. Jonah adds maturity and strength to the mix.They play well off of each other. The author makes you believe in the relationship and strong feelings of the three characters. The passion is strong between them and the intimate scenes are very well done.There was an immediate change in two characters personalities about halfway thru the book that didn't seem believable, but I rolled with it and stuck with them until the end. Their HEA was satisfying and the glimpse into the lives of other Den Boys was interesting and appreciated.

    In Healing Him, the story centers on Cody, his best friend Isaac and Jonah, an older man by about ten years. While I'm glad Jonah didn't have to play counselor to Cody and Isaac, as a victim of sexual abuse Cody really seems to have needed one, especially delving into a new poly relationship. He has been incapable of even the barest touch since his abuse. I've always liked instalove in a story, and we have that element here with Jonah, but I'm not convinced that as much lovin that is in this book would really take place that fast with someone as damaged as Cody. If you like lotsa-lovin, this is your book. 3.5 stars

    EMOTIONAL, INTENSE, AND SEXY!Wow, nicely done! I am always wary about reading M/M/M reads. It will either be a hit or miss for me. Healing Him was a Hit out of the park though! I truly enjoyed reading this book! Cody, Jonah, and Issac are amazing men. And they compliment each other beautifully. The story line kept me turning the pages, and the characters were just what I love in M/M/M reads. emotional, not jealous, and just perfect. This book may not be for all M/M lovers because its poly, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it! Can't wait to read Xander's book next!

    I liked this second installment of The Den Boys series quite a bit. It is a sweet and sexy story of healing for not just the obvious character, but all of the MCs. Cody and Isaac are just adorable and Jonah is exactly what they need. I enjoyed the way the author shows the balance that makes this triad work. I did find the timing to be a little faster than I would have expected, but not unbelievable. I recommend starting with book 1, although this can be read as a standalone. Can't wait for book 3!

    A beautiful story of healing and finding love. Very well written and developed storyline with wonderful characters. Cody suffered sexual abuse as a child and is traumatized now as an adult. Isaac and Jonah help him heal with love and yes, sexual healing also. Very HOT sexual healing. I like that Isaac and Jonah don't push Cody, they let him go at his pace as they form a triad relationship.I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    3.5*I liked the characters and the story was ok but when there is too much sex you kinda loose sight of intimacy. To me 3 is a crowd and really not emotional enough for me. I like all three men but it's just to much...sex..sex...sex...sex..there needs to be more story to support a trio, something to make your heart bleed and beat for them. You want to feel there love on a deeper level then your other couples because it needs to be more.
