K is back with the start of an interesting duet. Triple Threat features the identical triplets from the Cinderella books. You remember, the assholes who terrorized Ash? Yeah, that’s them. And I’m not gonna say that they aren’t still assholes.
So, after the events of last books, Scout, Sparrow, and Sully are living with their uncle and are now part of the Morelli crime family. They have to do whatever their uncle tells them to do, and some of them like that and some of them hate it. The latest thing that they have to do is to try and seduce a young woman named Landry. The catch is that the S boys have to do it as the same person. Scout, Sparrow, and Sully will all pretend to be Ford Mann, and see Landry at different places. Their goal is to make her fall in love with Ford.
Landry is the isolated princess in the tower. Her father has kept her isolated from everything. Even now, as a young adult, she doesn’t have the ability to do anything. Landry has no friends, doesn’t date, doesn’t go to college, doesn’t work, does nothing. All she really does is stay home and be perfect for her father, and try to stand in between him and her younger sister. Landry is counting down the days until Della is old enough that they can get away from their father, but she still has 12 years to wait. Their father hates Della because his wife died in childbirth with her. Della is Deaf and uses ASL to communicate, but daddy dearest isn’t happy about that.
Anyway, the books starts with dear old dad coming home from Tokyo. His company has just made a huge merger with a company in Tokyo. Now he wants to make some connections in town. He’s going to use Landry and marry her off to a scion of the family he wants to connect to. That’s what the S’s uncle hopes to derail.
Daddy dear has decided that Landry can go to college, and loosens up his control just enough to send her to college, which gives the first opening for Ford to contact her. The next Ford comes to the house to teach Della how to speech read. The 3rd Ford is actually working directly for daddy darling, and is going to try to derail things that way.
OK, remember how I said that Sparrow, Sully, and Scout were assholes before and I wasn’t going to say that they weren’t? Well, they both are and aren’t. Scout is a huge asshole, most of the time. Sparrow and Sully can kind of be assholes sometimes. They are all still tight, and they support their brothers no matter what, but they bicker and poke at each other. They are possessive and competitive with each other. But, you also get the real sense that is the 3 of them against the world, even if their uncle is right there.
Each of the guys has his own way of interacting with Landry. Even Scout, who isn’t ever supposed to really see her, does see her and interacts with her. It’s confusing to Landry, and I’m not surprised, because the silly boys don’t really talk to each other and tell each other everything about their interactions with Landry.
Landry is in a helluva spot. There is so much more going on with her dad than we know. We get some hints of stuff that is happening or that has happened. And really, I just want to do horrible things to the man. Landry has a really loving heart, especially towards her sister. She is really protective. She’s also a consummate actress, which she has had to become, and that really sucks. She walks on tiptoes around just so that she can be seen as perfect all the time. I really like her, and I’m really pulling for her.
I like all the boys too, even Scout. There is a lot going on behind his eyes, and I can’t wait to find out more about him.
I really am dying for the next part of this duet, because the way that this one ended left me screaming.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
