The Handy Men by Jamie K. Schmidt




Jack and Dean love each other, but they’re missing the woman to complete their triangle. When newly divorced Paige Richards buys a Bed and Breakfast on Hamlet Island and employs them to help her fix the inn up, Jack and Dean are sure they’ve found the one they’ve been looking for. Despite the playful, sexy clues they drop, luscious Paige is reticent about getting involved, even when they set the stage so she can stumble on them in action. They can tell by her responses she wants to join them, but rumors travel fast on the small island, and tales of a threesome could get back to the conservative, family vacation crowd who won’t patronize those with an alternative lifestyle. And the last thing they want for Paige is the B&B’s rooms…and her bank account…to remain empty. But Jack and Dean will stop at nothing to prove to Paige that she can have it all…with them. 




We’ll treat her like a queen. F$ck like porn stars. And love her like she was our wife.

I always wanted to read a ménage with MMF altogether. This pushed me out of my comfort zone to begin with but I then began to love it. This is an unconventional love between three people. Monopoly has never been so hot.

Dean and Jack you can’t help but become a voyeur. And also want to participate. They are hot and sweet together and downright filthy. Add Paige in and well. Keep your fan ready.  

I thought that there wouldn’t be enough substance but I’m glad to have been proven wrong.

Paige wants to start over so she moves out to Hamlet Island to open up the bed & breakfast The Nutmeg Inn. Lonely after finding out that her husband cheated on her with Barbie she is starved for affection.

Jack and Dean are in a relationship they had a third but indifferences arose and she left. Jack and Dean are helping Paige get the bed and breakfast hence the handy men.  They want Paige and they are doing anything they can. Paige catches them in several acts and her fantasies start to run wild. But how will it work? They are a couple they love one another. But with the rumour mill of the island her livelihood is on the line.

The topic comes up that Jack can keep Stephanie and Dean Paige. Okay I guess they have to talk about it but for me it is a no brainer to be honest. They beg her to fight for them and then they tell her to take a break. Good on you Paige for putting a stop to it completely. The ending was somewhat anti-climactic. IMO.

There is o/w drama as an ex comes back and there is a surprise. That spoilt it for me. A lot.

I would have liked to have seen an epilogue to see how it continued a HFN just wasn’t enough for me. My first book by this author and although she has written an engaging, delectable read with fantastic characters with a balance of ménage that works between all three I’d need to think real hard about reading another book by this author.
