    One thought on “A Threefold Cord”

    1. “The three of them stared at each other from where they stood scattered through the room. A small step. A giant leap.”Julie Bozza and a m/m/m book, it's like this book was written for me. I've noticed I seem to use the same words over and over when describing her stories, meandering and flowing.e just has such a unique way of telling her tale.Gentle, slow and patient. Her characters are adults and they act like it, they feel strong emotions but are mature and careful and considerate of the o [...]

    2. I’m a big fan of Julie’s May/December novel Apothecary’s Garden and getting an early review copy of her new book A Threefold Cord was a chance I just didn’t want to miss. When I saw the title I couldn’t believe my eyes. A book title derived from a bible verse? That’s an intriguing novelty, and I just had to read how Julie would weave it into her story.Well, what can I say? It was spectacular, marvelous, wonderful, I was moved beyond words by the beauty of this story. This book was no [...]

    3. This is my Julie Bozza debut, and what a marvelous experience that was! Her writing is amazing! The story is carefully written, the plot is slowly developed, and we can appreciate every word with calm and understanding! Adding to this amazing style, there is a fabulous story of a menage, which is something that I really adore!One of the things that I love more about this kind of books, is to see how the author creates a menage that we can actually think that is doable you know, something that co [...]

    4. With some AWESOME friends! Another BR HERE Julie Bozza, never read anything of this author until now and WOW… Love it! Her writing gets into your soul, the characters express their feelings in a beautiful way – with a brithish way of a poetic love story - Brilliant! What I loved most about it is that it felt honest it's a book about three people in a relationship, Grae, Ben and Chris!! And they build such a strong relationship, without any discrimination only a wonderful LOVE, and I was "swe [...]

    5. Polite PornWhat is polite porn, you ask? Three British dudes who are hot for each other, like to shilly shally often and are exceedingly polite to one another whilst doing so. In short, polite porn is A Threefold Cord. The sex was maybe a little too polite for me and a wee bit heavy-handed on the safety talk, but they seemed to enjoy it so, what is it the Brits say? Carry on ole chaps!There is very little angst in this ménage story involving three thespians which, I have to admit, was a wee bit [...]

    6. 3.75 starsMenages, are not my favourite reading tropes. They seem so problematic, I always feel anxious about the relationship, whether someone is going to feel left out, how are things going to work out, the fallout if not, the ability to share . So before starting, I wondered if Bozza was going to make this work and how and if I was going to like it.Bozza just took all my worries and interweaved them into Ben, Grae and Chris and their story and took me along for the ride. I was there along, mu [...]

    7. Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review If you like your ménage with a stiff upper lip, Brit style, then I'm sure you'll love this one. I, on the other hand, had some problems with it. This is my first book by the well-loved Julie Bozza. To be honest, I own three (!!) of her other books but they seem to have disappeared into the black hole that is my Kindle. I've been dying to read her stuff for quite some time, and so I jumped on the chance to get a review copy of this one [...]

    8. Spectacular, marvellous, wonderful"Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken." Ecclesiastes 4:12How can I miss a ménage?Not a chance With this one I was moved beyond words by the beauty of this story. The writing was simply wonderful and story was fresh and believable even though it was hard to believe *sigh*Grae, Ben and Chris, three guys who share one passion - the love of the theatre and work together and complement each othe [...]

    9. I am not a great fan of menage stories because realistically they seem so fraught with all kinds of difficulty. I am also biased against these kinds of stories because I dislike polygamy and menage stories bring polygamous relationships to mind for me. Polygamy is alive and well in our world today and I have friends who grew up in polygamous homes. Such relationships do work but they are not easy, not something I would wish to experience. Having said this most m/m menage stories are very positiv [...]

    10. This was really good! It is delightfully British, and it's actually a believable ménage story. As for why it's not 5 stars for me, well, I didn't completely fall in love with any of the three men, nor did I feel strongly emotionally invested in their love story. These days, a book has to really make me feel something to earn that fifth star :)

    11. Julie Bozza has a knack for writing lovely, warm relationships that are not saccharine or simple. Here, she turns that talent on three men, all actors. Grae is gay, but a very private man. He's cast in a series with two co-stars who really turn his crank. The problem is that gorgeous Chris is a cheerful opportunist, who is probably shagging half the cast, male and female. And Ben is straight. But things get turned around when Grae's attempt at just one night basking in Chris's good nature gets h [...]

    12. Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review Initially I had a bit of a hard time connecting with the story. It felt a little stilted to me, and I had trouble warming up to Graeme. I didn't like how it felt like Ben was almost a relationship of convenience. Chris seemed to be the one he really wanted, but he settled for Ben. I also was a little uncomfortable with how quickly Ben seemed to open up to Graeme. However I started warming up after the time skip, and I saw Graeme and Be [...]

    13. OK, so in short I really loved this book. And I just want to put it out there that whether you love menage or not, it is very likely you will enjoy this book too. In terms of craft, this is quality writing. So there is that. In terms of whether you will enjoy the menage story I think you will too. How that develops is something to behold.At first we meet all three of these guys, as they are working together on a show. There is Graeme who is gay, Chris who is bi and Ben who is supposedly straight [...]

    14. I found this clever, uplifting and most assuredly written. The pace, tone and narrative arc are all perfect. The characters, especially the three boys, are depicted with flaws and fears, but they are almost always honest with themselves and others. The point of view is totally Grae's, so we rely on Ben and Chris' very biased views of him to develop our own understanding. Through Grae's eyes, Ben and Chris emerge as fully formed people, willing to risk for love.It all felt very organic. I loved t [...]

    15. BR on Monday May 12 Join the fun here!Welcome! :)(You'll get your own minion and everything ;) LOL! Don't worry, your butt is safe)

    16. FIIIOOOOONA!!!!Where`s the book, damnit?Day off, time to read, nice weather, I want to take the book with me.Is there a book-buying jam at Manifold? *drumsfingers*Edit:Got it!F.I.N.A.L.L.Y!

    17. To read this or not? Every book i've read by Julie Bozza has been a 5 star read for me, but I have yet to enjoy a m/m/m book. *sigh* what's a girl to do. Sads.

    18. I haven't been reviewing ANYTHING recently; neither good, bad nor favourite It appears I am rather reluctant to communicate in any form of eloquence (1-5 stars just about does it) how I feel about a book, so imagine my surprise when it turns out this book has managed to provoke some form of reaction from me. And here it is *rubs hands*First off let me be clear - I won't lie and tell you that the ménage-à-trois theme particularly gets me in the mood - so you could say that this had its work cut [...]

    19. I’m a big fan of Julie Bozza’s previous work. After my initial surprise at a ménage gay romance novel titled after a Bible verse, I found that A Threefold Cord is another great book by a favorite author. I found it to be uplifting and cleverly written. The pace, tone and narrative are all excellent, as if forming their own threefold cord. Ms. Bozza’s characters here, especially the three MCs, are written to allow us to clearly see their flaws and fears, while almost always honest with eac [...]

    20. Just when I thought I knew myself: my likes, dislikes, things I will and won’t tolerate in a book. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, Julie Bozza walks in with her book about a polyamorous love affair among three actors.I don’t even like books with actors as MCs. I have an extremely hard time accepting the dynamics of a three-way relationship (let alone a successful one). But it’s Julie Bozza! And it’s new! How could I not even try?A Threefold Cord is told from Grae’s POV. G [...]

    21. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*This is the book to read when you're tired of immature drama and big misunderstandings. These characters are adults who genuinely care about each other and are willing to communicate with each other and work on their relationship together. They don't hurt each other for petty reasons and they aren't careless with their love. Grae, Ben, and Chris are all actors who meet while filming a miniseries together. The book is written [...]

    22. I received a copy of this book via ' Don't Buy My Love in exchange for an honest review.4.5 stars for a quiet, contemporary M/M/M romance.Graeme, Ben and Chris are all British actors, filming a miniseries for television. Grae is gay, Ben is straight, and Chris is bisexual. All three men get along very well, have a certain chemistry, which extends to the wrap party, where Grae, usually a rather aloof chap, offers himself to Chris. Chris, reluctantly, turns Grae down, knowing he won't be able to c [...]

    23. 3.5 stars. Grae is a private man who keeps the fact he's gay private. That's not easy when working with two men on a tv series that grab his attention. Chris, a self proclaimed tart, is Grae's first try but Chris turns him down. His other co-star Ben then steps in to take a shy turn at Grae. Ben is straight but something about Grae grabs him and before long they are a couple. They have the usual couple troubles, different backgrounds, different families, concern their work will separate them fro [...]

    24. Is this out yet? Why can't I buy it for my kindle? Needs it now!The one thing I love most about m/m/m romance is when an author looks at the difficulties of such a relationship and the realities of sharing your life as three people, rather than two. I felt the author of this book had done a great job in showing how a couple in the tentative first few months of what could be a long, established relationship bring in a third man. There's no shying away from the problems and yet the author manages [...]

    25. I must admit, I had a hard time getting into this, but once I did, I found a beautifully written story that tugged at my emotions. This book delves into the minefields of a threesome more than any other menage story I've read, in a way that ends up being both fascinating and painful. The main drawback for me was the formal tone of the characters. It made them seem much older than their actual age (which I believe is mid-20s). Still, Julie Bozza continues to prove herself a master of lovely, thou [...]

    26. Congratulations Ms Bozza. This book has provided me with the most realistic / believable expose on how a M-M-M polyamorous relationship could be played out. The bonuses of course include very attractive main characters (Ben is the best) and several highly entertaining hours of guilty-pleasure reading. Thank you very much.

    27. Julie Bozza gets into the heart of her characters and puts them on full display - bruised, battered and bound back together by love - like no other. Astounding. Brilliant. Mesmerizing.

    28. A copy was provided by the author for an honest review.In A Threefold Cord, Julie Bozza explores the triad romance of Grae, Ben, and Chris who meet while acting in a a miniseries. Grae develops a deep attraction to the beautiful Chris, a bisexual man who takes many lovers without forming any lasting emotional attachments. While Grae also feels a lesser attraction to Ben, he does not act on those feelings because he assumes Ben is straight. Chris is interested in Ben, too. After making the same a [...]
