The Princess (Breakfast at Bennett's Book 3) by E.M. Denning

Angel says, "The third book in E.M Denning's Breakfast at Bennett's, The Princess does not disappoint with found family and a throuple to swoon for."

My favorite book in this series by far!!

From the blurb:

Taylor Bennett wants his brother’s best friends.

Taylor is the youngest of three kids. He’s a cook at the family diner, a plant dad, a devoted son, and irrevocably in love with his brother’s best friend. Both of his brothers’ best friends, actually. But they’re in a relationship with each other, one that’s supposed to be a secret. So even if they were into him, they’re already together and three’s a crowd.

Damon Acosta is a pharmacist, an extrovert, an honorary member of the Bennett family, and best friend to Jonah Bennett. He’s also maybe a little in love with Taylor, the youngest Bennett Brother. Damon has always thought Taylor was good looking, but when he started wearing pretty sweaters and shiny lip gloss, Damon’s attraction went through the roof. There’s only one problem. Damon is in a relationship with Nash, Colby Bennett’s best friend.

Nash Weaver is a writer, a hermit apartment dweller, weekly begrudging gym-goer, and in love with Damon Acosta. Maybe also a bit in love with Taylor. He and Damon have always been willing to open their relationship for the right person. When it’s clear that Damon is head over heels for Taylor, Nash gives them his blessing. Only it’s not long before he finds out that Taylor is also into him.

Taylor knows how important Nash and Damon are to his brothers and to each other. He’s a fool for being willing to risk it all at his own shot at happiness, but Taylor has never let a little foolishness get in his way.

Breakfast at Bennett’s is a four book series consisting of The Virgin, The Jock, The Princess, and The Outcast. It is best enjoyed if read in order.

Angel's review:

Taylor caught my interest ever since the first book, but in Colby's story his character intrigued me even more. I'm so glad he got his own story and what a truly spectacular one it was!!

I love Taylor's character, he's headstrong, talented, caring, and can be just as stubborn as his brothers are. He's been interested in both Damon and Nash for years but always felt like it was a dream that would never come true to be able to have them both. But when Damon asks him out on a date, which then leads to all three men having a conversation, he realizes that his feelings aren't one sided.

Nash and Damon's characters are just as amazing as Taylor's character is. We didn't get to learn a lot about them in the previous books but that's okay cause we got to learn about them in this one. I liked how both of these men knew what they wanted but also talked about their insecurities and how they truly feel about certain things. I think it's really important to have open communication with any relationship, and I think this author did a really beautiful job highlighting the importance of communication.

The relationship between these three men occurred throughout the course of this story. It wasn't a fast insta-love situation, they took their time to go on dates, and spend time together in a romantic way. Even after they confirmed they are in a relationship with each other, they continued to go on dates, and take the time to just be together, which I thought was really great.

There is a bit of angst in this book between Colby and these men, but it does eventually get resolved and it helped add more of a dynamic to these characters along with showing the growth these characters had. I'm really curious about Mickey's character, I hope that it's his story we get next! Overall a really fabulous story!!

Heather's Review:

EM Denning does a lot of things well, but what she does brilliantly is write MMM.  I love Nash and Damon's relationship and openness, which leads them to separately and together pursue Taylor... as a polyamorous established couple who talks through things and shares even more...

This throuple comes together so organically, and the beautiful synergy is only thrown off by Taylor's over protective brother... 

I've loved Taylor since we first met him, and I love that with each book in this series, his confidence in himself and his needs grows so that when he's ready to explore a relationship, it's with the knowledge of what he needs and wants at the forefront.... I love that Taylor doesn't back down from his brother or what he wants.

I'm very excited to see where this series goes in the finale - with Mickey's character... and hopefully the final Bennett to find love, the boys Dad - age gap, second chance romance for the win?
