For Jake Hanson, it was the perfect solution to a deep darkness. The accident took more than the use of his legs; it took everything that made him feel like a man. He needs their ménage. It puts him on the path to healing. With Jessie and Chad, he can conquer anything...he thinks.

Jessica Hanson did it all for her husband, to make him feel whole again. She didn’t want a threesome. At least, that’s what she believed in the beginning. But when she realizes that she can’t imagine life without both her husband and his best friend by her side, she’ll question everything she thought completed her.

FBI agent Chad Wilson couldn’t believe he agreed to his best friend’s proposal. There were too many things beyond his control that could go wrong. But when things go right, he is forced to admit to the best months of his life. Yet on the heels of his greatest joy comes his greatest fear. He’s endangered them all, and the clock is ticking.

They’ll push the boundaries and blur the lines, coming face to face with one of life’s hardest truths: Sometimes to become whole, you have to break.

Make Me Whole was an interesting look inside what happens when a married couple is faced with unforeseen adversity.

Jake and Jessica Hanson, are happily married, until a ski accident leaves him paralyzed. I will pause to say this was in the blurb; I don’t plan to reveal anything more than what the author has already shared.

Jake is left feeling like less of man though he can still “perform” in bed; he feels like his marriage has suffered and lost much of the passion that he once loved about his marriage.

Jake’s solution is one that he comes up in therapy; yes this author did a wonderful job using a therapist in this one. The solution is to bring his best friend and a current FBI agent Chad Wilson into their bedroom.

How Jake brings Chad into their bedroom, the way Jessica reacts, the gradual journey from Chad acting almost as a surrogate, to Chad and Jessica slowing exploring each other, to witnessing Jake opening up, were all so well done.

The author did an amazing job particularly with the relationship between Chad and Jake.  Chad pushed Jake, he doesn’t accept his excuses. Chad working to find a way to help his friend live again was so powerful and spoke to the depth of these men’s connection.

As this one starts to develop, the reader gets to know Chad. It’s life that spirals out of control and his life that threatens it all. How a man who thought his life would be about only emotional sex, how a man who swore to never love, deals with the new dynamics in his life and why Chad is so closed off kept me engaged in this story as it was about more than just sex makes everything better.

I do wish there was more at the end but sadly I am starting to think that might be this publisher’s mo.
