The Platinum Triangle by TV Hartwell

Deliciously handsome lawyer Jake Doyle is set to marry his college sweetheart, heiress and socialite Amanda Climent. Both scions of prominent, old money Los Angeles families, they seem like the perfect couple who have it all, but their happiness is not shared by everyone, and the people closest to them are desperate to tear them apart. When Jake introduces his new girlfriend to his parents, his mother becomes dead set on breaking things up from the start. Turns out she had an affair with Amanda’s father years before, a secret known only to the two of them. But there’s more that she’s been hiding ever since, and to keep a scandal from unfolding she does everything she can to rid her son of Amanda and her family for good.

Meanwhile, Jake’s longtime bromance with his best friend, Kirby, complicates things. What began as homoerotic horseplay between high school jocks has evolved into something far more serious and enduring. Although Jake has chosen to marry the girl he loves, he’s blindsided when Kirby comes out and professes his love for him. As competing forces collide, untold secrets and lies threaten to derail Jake and Amanda’s dream of a future together, and Jake is faced with a decision he never imagined he’d have to make. **This book is intended for mature readers (18+) and contains adult situations, including M/F and M/M sexual intimacy.

My Review:
This book was a quick, fun, read. It was full of plots, twists, and romance, just like a soap opera. And like a good soap opera, it kept you riveted, wondering what was going to happen next. I was rooting for Jake and Kirby, but it doesn’t look like that was meant to be. However, Jake and Amanda were great together too. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
