✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Mine by Chloe Lynn Ellis

It's been quite a day here with celebrating the youngest's birthday, but I did find some time to finally finish Mine by Chloe Lynn Ellis.



Jack Kelly. Driven. Volatile. Lonely. He grew up believing that some kinds of love are just wrong…

“No Kelly has ever been worth a damn in this town until me. But the money? I can’t talk to it, I can’t fuck it, and believe me, it’s a damn cold bed partner to wake up next to.”

Dylan Smith. Sensual. Nurturing. Bisexual. He sees nothing wrong with enjoying the pleasures in life…

“Just let yourself go. It’s okay to let me love you. To let both of us love you.”

Cate MacMillan. Curvy. Smart. Frustrated. She’s ready to shake off her insecurities and stop denying herself…

“No one else has ever made me feel like this. Wanton. Shameless. Free.

Three friends who grew up together…

Their childhoods were shaped by one man, their resentments fueled by two misunderstandings, and all three will be pulled back into each other’s lives by a loss that affects them all. What they’ll find together isn’t what any of them expects… but it might be exactly what each of them needs.


Momma Says: 2 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐

I really struggled with rating this book. Ellis is talented and the book is well-written as far as flow. She's also quite descriptive, especially when it comes to Boston and its many attributes. The story revolves around Jack, Dylan, and Cate, and of the three, Dylan was the most likable. Jack was a jerk through most of the story and Cate was okay, but I found little to set her apart from any female lead in any romance. However, the characters weren't my real problem with this one. The book is lengthy - over 100k word count lengthy. That, in itself, wouldn't bother me as long as there is something to keep the story moving along. Sadly, that wasn't the case. Much like Cate, I didn't find anything to set this story apart from any other menage romance. The characters bicker over the same issue and then things get steamy, over and over. I have no problem with steamy times, but sex just for the sake of another sex scene isn't beneficial to the story. The story began to drag on and in my opinion, it could've easily been cut in half and it would've been a much more entertaining read. As it stands, I began to lose interest at about the 50% mark with the same issues being discussed in triplicate with the first person multi POV, and while the characters do get their happily ever after, I felt little connection to any of them.

Mine is available on Amazon and is listed in Kindle Unlimited.
