His Harem: Room for Elijah by Samantha Cayto

Part of a multi author collection, a trio has to decide if there is Room for Elijah in their relationship.

From the blurb:

There is always room for the right person.

Elijah has been forced to leave his home because of his homophobic family. He has arrived in Boston with the hopes of starting a new life. His first stop is a drag club. Intrigued by the art form, he wants to take a peek and look for work.

After leaving the military, Dermott opened Queens to celebrate his love of drag and Irish pubs. Two of his best performers, Rienk and Nico, pack his club and share his bed. Dermott gives the boys needed stability and love, and the three of them have formed an unconventional family.

Dermott is everything Elijah has ever fantasized about, although he does not expect the man to give him anything more than a job. He is already involved with two other beautiful and worldly boys. There is no room for a sheltered virgin like him.

Dermott and his harem were not looking for a new romantic entanglement. When an obviously lost, yet sweet, boy enters the club and their lives, each of them let Elijah know that they would welcome another boy into Dermott’s enormous bed and heart.

Giving his virginity to Dermott would be a dream come true for Elijah, and the other boys are becoming amazing friends. But trusting all three of these men with his heart may be more than Elijah can handle. 

Lori C's Review:

Have you ever been to drag club? Well, welcome to Queens where you can walk in from the cold and find a family. Room for Elijah is a short emotional read with a happy ending set in Boston. Why is it emotional? Because it’s hard for me to read and think about a person feeling so unloved just for being who they are. But do you know what makes it easier? The acceptance that he finds with Dermott, Rienk, and Nico at Queens.

It is also quite spicy. There is a mix of behind closed doors and in the scene spice in almost every chapter of the book. While it helps to lessen the emotional angst that started the story, it also contributes to the kerfuffle at the end. Overall, an enjoyable quick read that leads me to wonder if I might enjoy her past and future books as well. 😊

Janet's Review:

Room for Elijah is a sweet polyamory with found family. Unconditional love and understanding.  

I felt for Elijah for what his family had done to him. He seemed lost. He stumbles into the club and finds a mountain of a man. Dermott is happy in his triad with Rienk and Nico. They happily expand their triad to include Elijah. I loved that they treated him with kindness, compassion and understanding! 
The story is a sweet polyamory with three twinks and a Daddy that get into all kinds of fun.

I wish there had been a little more depth or backstory. The story is told from Elijah's POV. I wish it was a little longer and multiple POV's. 

Overall a great read that was over way to fast for me.

Zakiyya's Review:

I find polyamories sexy and enticing…🥰

It isn’t just two peoples opinions, likes, dislikes and emotions that need to be detailed – which is difficult enough.

It fascinates me and I love reading about them.

This story is about the sweet, delicate and love-starved Elijah who’s down on his luck and ends up stumbling into a drag club that changes his life completely.

There he is met with kindness, compassion and more understanding and acceptance than he has ever known.

Told only from Elijah’s POV – this was a short and light read – very surface-level.

Reading this made me realise that the complexly interrelating elements if a polyamory relationship is way too multifaceted to be contained within a novella.

I liked all of these characters – Elijah, Dermott, Nico and Rienk and would be even more happy to read them in a more detailed full-length novel form all POV’s.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

An enticing, quick enjoyable read about a shy, sheltered young man’s start in a big city. Lucky for Elijah, he is met with kindness, compassion and a whole lot of intimacy. Reink and Noah were likable characters, but Dermott was definitely Daddy of the book. 

“𝚁𝚒𝚎𝚗𝚔 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝙽𝚒𝚌𝚘 𝚠𝚒𝚕𝚕 𝚑𝚎𝚕𝚙 𝚢𝚘𝚞 𝚐𝚎𝚝 𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚍𝚢 𝚏𝚘𝚛 𝚋𝚎𝚍. 𝚁𝚎𝚊𝚍𝚢 𝚏𝚘𝚛 𝚖𝚎,”

I absolutely loved how patient these three men were with Elijah’s virginity. They never pressured him, always seeking his consent before going any further.  Their playful moments with just the three was fiercely spicy, but those scenes that included Dermott were scorching hot!! 

I would have enjoyed just a tad bit more than what was given though. Especially with the complexity of a polyamorous relationship, it’s difficult to include all elements in a novella. But, a definite four star read of fire, passion and smoking hot scenes!
