Emerald: Protecting You by Berengaria Brown


AJ has psychic abilities and knows that Drew is her soul mate. But bisexual Drew flits from partner to partner. At the moment he’s with Kristien, and Kristien is very much in love with Drew. AJ can’t bear the thought that the only way for her to achieve happiness is to break Kristien’s heart.

She invites them both to join her and her friends at the beach for a few days, hoping to get closer to Drew. A rocky wall calls to her, and when she climbs up she explores a cave and is led to three stones: an onyx, symbolizing herself, an emerald, the stone she considers to represent Drew, and amber, which is Kristien’s stone. What does it all mean?

Reviewer: Fashionta

Emerald: Protecting You is the last in the series Birthstone  from Torquere Press. I have had issues with this author's work in the  past as she tends to forget little details in her own stories.  

  AJ is a female character we were introduced to in Berengaria's previous  book as a minor character. This continuation now relates her story.  According to the psychic powers that possess AJ, she knows Drew is her  soul mate. There's just one problem and it's a big one. Okay, maybe two.  Drew is gay and in a committed relationship with Drew. AJ begins to  second guess herself and ultimately invites the two men to join her at a  beach house to hopefully sort things out.  

In this situation,  the two main male characters, Drew and Kristien, know that AJ is psychic  and they are able to magically appear in a cave when they haven’t been  there before. Suspension of disbelief much? Maybe a little more detail  wouldn’t hurt this book but it hard not to enjoy this book because of  the MMF Relationship in it.  

In this story Kristien is gay  rather than bisexual, whereas most of these MMF books portray both of  the male characters as bisexual and it drives me crazy. When you see a  book advertised as MMF, you assume it to be one gay character in a  menage. The descriptions (probably made by the editor) need to be more  explicit. I have to give this book 3.5 stars.
