Three's a Crowd

by Kate Gavin

Zoe Tyler’s life is just…okay. She’s got her first real job, a pile of student loan debt, and a boyfriend named Jake who used to be home a whole lot more than he has been lately.

When Paige Newbanks shows up unannounced at her half-brother’s apartment, she’s not only desperate for a place to stay, but desperate to get to know the brother she hasn’t seen since she was five years old.

With Jake so busy at work these days, Zoe and Paige end up spending more time with each other than they do with Jake. Soon the pair are drawn together in a way that surprises them both.

But as much as Zoe and Paige want to be together, the last thing they want to do is hurt the man who brought them together. Do they dare jeopardize their relationships with Jake in order to make themselves happy?

"It seems like each of my story ideas comes to me in a random and different way each time. For Three’s a Crowd, the idea came to me one night when I was scrolling Twitter instead of writing. I found a thread of how people met their spouse. One user said she had a workaholic boyfriend and he told her to hangout with his roommate instead which made her realize she was in love with the wrong guy and was now married to the roommate. Add in an extra dose of drama with some strained family dynamics, and Three’s a Crowd was born!"

    Melina B. - I absolutely loved this book. It was quite angst-free compared to other books of a simile theme, which was fine by me. The chemistry between the two leads was very well written—I loved how it naturally developed from sweet to sizzling hot.… The author is clearly skilled at writing a slow burn romance with fantastic chemistry in the end.

    Jessica R. - So this book is great! …The book is filled with LGBT characters, who support each other, and it warms your heart. This is my first book of Kate's, but I'm definitely going to be adding her other books to my ever-growing TBR list.

    Emily R. - From the outset the blurb of the book really intrigued me and I had so many questions going in as to what way it could play out (which I normally don't get), and have to say I wasn't disappointed at all, it’s a cute, easy read about two girls falling in love in a bit of a weird circumstance…. Overall, really enjoyed this book and it was a great read

    Betty H. - Three’s a Crowd by Kate Gavin is a well-written new adult contemporary romance. While I am out of the range for this target audience by a few decades, I still enjoyed reading this story of young love.

    This is a love triangle story with three likeable characters thrown into an almost impossible situation. These three characters are developed to fit their roles in the book. Paige and Zoe seem to be a little more mature than Jake, but that fits the story line as well. The tale also has a fair amount of angst throughout the book for all three people. This is a really nice character-driven romance with a love triangle as the main conflict.

    Jade R. - I loved the representation within this story from a LGBTQ+ standpoint. The romance was cute and it was just an easy romance read that I enjoyed.

    Deborah K. - The attraction and feelings that developed between Zoe and Paige felt well timed and authentic. There was angst but it was reasonable angst. It was smart angst. It was believable angst. It drives me crazy when an author creates stupid nonsensical angst that could be resolved usually by the two main characters having a conversation. That didn't happen here. The two women were in a very complicated situation, and it made sense. I loved both characters and I loved them together. Also, there is some very hot love making scenes in one of the last chapters that just adds more to an already great read. I definitely recommend and give it a 5-star rating.
