Leslie has no use for long term attachments. She’s seen firsthand how fickle love can be. Better to keep things casual and walk away before someone else hurts you. Even when walking away leaves a wound that won’t heal.

Seth and Joshua are the two most successful Family Law attorneys in Boston. But their job can’t fill the void in their lives. Linked together by a lifetime of shared abuse and neglect, they want a woman who can complete their relationship, both in and out of the bedroom.

A legal issue leaves Leslie with nowhere else to turn and she strikes a devil’s bargain with the two sexiest lawyers in Boston. But her resolution to keep things light crumbles when their passion overflows the bedroom. When the past comes knocking, Leslie must choose retreat or the chance of a lifetime. In the end, she can only hope the crescendo leads to an encore.

Crescendo by Kaitlin Maitland took me into the lives of three individuals who shielded their hearts by remaining aloof in their love lives. Seth and Joshua are a breath stealing duo who would leave any woman breathless. Both men have different traits but possess the same need to protect. Sometimes in a way that is detrimental to them. I loved Seth’s take charge attitude and his sheer presence, and equally loved Joshua’s more even keeled attitude.

Leslie’s betrayal made tears prick my eyes and the sheer magnitude of why she hid finally made sense. In fact, I was pleased to see that her passion led her to the perfect men to protect and help her. I admired her selfless-ness and realized it was also her greatest weakness. I wanted her to clobber the woman trying to take what was hers, but mostly wanted to see the three of them succeed in a loving healthy…normal relationship with each other. The passion made me sweat and long to be the heroine on many occurrences. I’ll love reading this again and again.
