OMG! I'm in love!
I'm glad this book is a menage because I couldn't pick between the two men. Liam - handsome and bossy; Karl - sexy and emotional. Mia was as perfect for them as they were for her.
I adore Aunt Mildred! She is so funny and certainly livens up things. Ms Shearer always makes me laugh, cry and as usual I needed a tissue in parts.
Be aware there is a trigge warning about child abuse but the way it was written showed compassion and thoughtfulness.
I simply love Ms Shearer's older characters, much easier to relate to someone your own age. If you've never read her books before this is a great one to start with.
5 Stars from me.

Aunt Mildred, you rock!! Emotional roller coaster, and tissues are definitely needed. Love the writing about "older" couples.

I love books with older couples! This book had it all! Love, hot steamy ménage sex, intense moments, tears and one crazy lovable Aunt Mildred. I want to get in line for my pearls and join this family. One bad day ends up making dreams come true in so many different ways for our threesome. Mia, Karl and Liam will prove to you that love will conquer past history and make for a fantastic future!

Mia is done. Done with the day. Done with her bad luck and done with life. Its nothing but one bad luck moment after the next. Or is it? A serious of terrible events (funny because they’re totally relatable) leads Mia to her own business. It’s a brand-new start. A second chance. But that also leads her to Liam and Karl. They’re Millionaires, sexual partners and they want her to join them. When did her luck get so good? This sounded like such a fun story from the blurb. Light and romantic. Something to read before bed or a break at work. There is a lot more depth than I expected. I really like Mia. I understand her. She’s having those days that we all have. The kind that makes me want to sit in front of the tv with a pint of Haagen-Dazs and the phones turned off. Then she meets not one but two sexy men who want her. Unfortunately, they’re a pair because she only likes one. That is a great twist! I am not crazy about the plot of a millionaire falling in love and making it a menage. There is just a bit too many of those out there. It’s not believable for a contemporary. That said, I like the authors writing style. It’s down to earth and her characters are relatable. There’s some humor in here that had me smiling. There’s some sex in here that had me grinning. Sweet Things is a highly recommended read!
Really liked it!
