Welcome to Day Two! I'm happy to have my muse sis Rawiya with a post about m/m/f! Woot! 3 people in love is sometimes even better than two!
* * * *
Good morning. Recently I’ve crossed over into a new realm in my writing. I’ve done the M/M as well as the M/F which should be sent in for publication at some point but the MMF is one I hadn’t tackled yet and I’m very excited how it turned out. Bringing a woman into the mix was harder than I thought too. In my yet to be published story, my men weren’t ready to accept the female into their relationship and in my upcoming novel series, African Sun, the female was left out of scenes entirely since my two males couldn’t keep their hands off one another. However, I started reading more MMF books, one in particular that helped was Tara Lain’s Genetic Attraction.
I won’t spoil the book for you but in hers, she eased the female in a different way instead of having the relationship between all three start out from the forefront. Something I also wanted to explore in mine was the jealousy aspect which is real and adds a little spice to the story. In African Sun, I have that with both the MC’s male partner and his female lead. Somehow they’ll work it out. At this point I don’t even know how they do. *laughs* But in my newest book, Living in the Now, there’s an opportunity for the female to be part of the relationship and both MC’s want it, or at least it appears that way. I add the envy aspect though and in my mind, it turns out well for all three. A little bit of fun and tension since the protagonists’ boyfriend isn’t sure he’s made the right decision and my feisty female not backing down from the challenge.
I love it! This kind of setup made writing this book a lot easier and I hope when you read it you’ll enjoy what happened between my characters as well.

Angie looked at Mara who immediately drew the attention of the nice looking gentleman. “Um, Mara, this is Bryan. He just stepped in from work, needing a drink. Bryan, my friend and coworker, Mara.” Angie waived her hand.
“Hello.” He smiled sweetly and extended his palm for Mara to shake it.
Immediately she accepted, grinning at him, enjoying the sight in front of her. The feel of his hands, so soft and warm. Obviously a white-collar worker. Scents of her favorite man’s cologne infiltrated her nostrils causing her pulse to quicken. She loved to lick it off him if she had the chance.
“Hi, looks like you came in just in time to get one drink. Pity.” She cocked an eyebrow and drew up her ruby red lips into a pucker. Their gaze wasn’t broken.
He hadn’t let her hand go yet. Bryan drew up his lips. “Yeah, I guess I’ll have to drink elsewhere, hmm?”
Angie began cleaning.
Mara moved in a little closer to the bar, still staring at Mr. Hottie.
My luck just got better.
“Well, we were just about to go to another place. Do you wanna to join us?”
Bryan finished the rest of his drink and sat the glass down. Seductively, he licked his lips making Mara salivate. She wished they were on top of hers right now.
“Sure, where you headed?”
Mara batted her eyes and leaned in closer making sure he could get a good look at her best assets. “To a place near Roosevelt called Mystique. They’re having a Fuck Valentine’s Day dance party.”
Bryan chuckled heartily, obviously amused by the reference. “Sounds like a great time. Tell me, does the name mean you’re guaranteed a fuck today or does it call for somethin’ else?”
Mara couldn’t help but be excited by his response. “Well, I believe the answer is the latter but if you play your cards right, it may just be lucky for both you and me.” Mara’s gaze remained affixed to his dark brown orbs. In that small moment, she studied his features. Bryan was so damn hot; perfect dimples, and smooth, porcelain white skin she love to have entangled in her red satin sheets around her coffee colored body. How could a man this good looking be alone tonight?
Angie guffawed while she mopped the floor.
“Is that so,” he raised an eyebrow. “In that case, I’m game. Are you girls drivin’ over there?”
Mara felt herself creaming in response to the hot stranger. “Nope, we’re gonna take a cab since we thought we might be havin’ more than a few more drinks. Are you?”
Bryan shifted in the chair, “No, I walked over here. I work at the Water Tower for a consultants firm. I just left and decided to leave my car so I could enjoy a few libations. Mind if I tag along with you two in the taxi?”
She nodded and winked, wishing it was only the two of them at this moment but she couldn’t abandon her best friend. “Not at all. If you try anything funny, we can take you. Would you like another one before we hit the road?”
The corners of Bryan’s mouth turned up into a smile. “Maybe just water will do Mara…and your last name?” He held out his hand once more.
“Devine, Mara Devine.” Again, she took his hand firmly. The feel of his skin against hers sent electric shocks to every part of her body.
“Such a perfect name for a very attractive lady. If you’re interested my last name is Finley.”
Oh yes, I’m interested.
Bryan pulled her closer and whispered, “You look lovely tonight, Mara. I’m gonna have a hard time behaving myself and being a gentleman.”
“Then don’t, Bryan. I enjoy a little harmless playing, especially if it leads into somethin’ else.” Mara mouthed into his ear and exaggerated the end of the sentence for affect. She didn’t care that they’d just met. Mara wanted him in the worst way. She sniffed his aroma again and became intoxicated, wishing they were anywhere but here.
Bryan flinched and grinned. “Oh yeah, you’re my kind of lady, Mara. You can take the flirts and dish ‘em out.”
