This is not my usual kind of book at all, but there’s definitely a lot of passion and drama. The characters were a bit difficult to relate to and it’s a bit slow at the beginning. The writing is good and flows naturally so it’s a pretty easy read. I’d recommend reading these books in order.
We are first introduced to Ava in the first book in this series…and her story is definitely one that should be read. Ava’s friendship with her two best guy friends has been transforming into something more for years. After a night filled with liquid courage, Ava gets to live out her fantasy with her guys. The aftermath, however, is heartbreaking and eye-opening.
Hunter takes off, leaving Ava and Thomas behind to mend what’s left of their broken hearts. When Hunter comes back, years later, to make things right between the three of them…is it too little too late? And what happens when their insecurities from their first encounter threaten to end things before they can really get going again? (Hint: You have to read it to find out!)
This is a beautifully written story that is realistic and super hot! I mean put your kindle down and look around to make sure no one else can see the sexiness on your screen! I found myself immersed in Ava’s story and am left wanting more of her and her guys. Can’t wait to see what is next for this series!
Accepted: Rhodes Family book 2, by Lisa Wood is a MMF book. I loved reading this book as once I started, I was hooked and could not put it down. This story was addicting to read, and it put you on an emotional rollercoaster as you turned the pages. Ava, Thomas, and Hunter were lifelong best friends until they fell apart. When Hunter tries to rekindle and fix it will they be able to? Or will what happened in the past have a hold on their future? I highly recommend and I cannot wait to see what comes next in this series.
Accepted (Rhodes Family #2) by Lisa Wood
Accepted is rated for 18+. Lisa knows what to do to keep anyone’s attention. This was a phenomenal read and I hope there’s more. If you don’t like MM then this isn’t for you.
Ava, Gabe’s sister, is in love with the two of her best friends. One night leads to seven years of misery, hurt, and loss. When Ava comes home from work one night to see that Hunter had left something. The quote I chose for Ava: “Hunter, that night we shared was seven weeks ago. When you went for breakfast, you were mugged. You were left to die in an alley, shot and beaten, with no way to identify you. The reason I’m thirty pounds lighter is because I spiraled down after you left, stopped working and holed up in my house. I didn’t answer my phone, I didn’t answer my door, I hardly ate. Gabe got me out of the house the day he found you by kicking in my door, throwing me naked in a cold shower and yelling at me.”
Thomas is one of Ava’s best friends and lovers. Things hadn’t been good for several years due to one night that changed everything. He is yearning for his friends and lovers. The quote I chose for Thomas is: “At the beginning I tried my best to give you the benefit of the doubt but at the three-week mark, you were still incommunicado, Ava had written me off and I was as low as I’ve ever been. I quit the firm without notice and moved to a firm Kevin recommended for me. I can’t tell you how much guilt we both feel about you laying in a hospital bed while we assumed the worst of you. I think I can speak for both of us telling you that we don’t expect your forgiveness. We let you down.”
Hunter is the one who messed everything up by walking out the next morning. Things were tough for him at home and his head wasn’t straight. He didn’t understand what was happening, but he fixed it. Until a mugging goes bad that is. The quote I chose for Hunter is: “That right there is why there’s no forgiveness to ask for. All the three of us need to do is prioritize and love each other. I can’t ask for more than that. I love you both , forever and always.”
I loved this book. It is the second book in the Rhodes Family Series and follows the story of the sister Ava. I loved reading this book. The characters are so well written and likeable.
We meet Ava, Thomas and Hunter in the first story but we don’t get to know much about their story until now.
Ava, Thomas and Hunter have been friends for years, completely inseperable. Little did they realise that their friendship was turning into love.
One night after a few drinks they took their friendship one step further. While Ava and Thomas thought this could be the start of something new and they could all be together, Hunter fled causing heartbreak to them all.
7 years later Hunter wants to repair the damage that he caused and see if he can rebuild what he destroyed all those years ago.
Can Ava and Thomas forgive him for the past? Can a three way relationship work? And is it acceptable to love and be in a relationship with 2 people?
Accepted: Rhodes Family Book 2 by Lisa Wood is a MMF story, a complicated ménage a trois. You should read book one Shattered before you read Accepted, to understand what is happening in this story. I will admit that I was frustrated and annoyed with the characters at times and wanted to give them a swift kick up the a…… There are lots of emotions where hearts are broken, and forgiveness is not so easy to give. Can they see past their hurt and anger and let love set them free?

Accepted: Rhodes Family Book 2 by Lisa Wood
This book was about Ava, Thomas and Hunter. I really enjoy it when the timelines in the series are explained, this story is a parallel time line to Gabe and Olivia.
I really don’t know where to start. Ms. Wood started it off hot and it never really cooled down. Well there were a few parts but wow, there were some incredibly hot moments.
I love the interaction between the Rhodes siblings and how close they are with their parents. I can’t wait to read the next siblings story. Please let it be Liam!
Accepted (Rhodes Family Book 2) by Lisa Wood
Oh My God! I’m Really hoping there is going to be more books to this series. I seriously need more! This is a hot and steamy Romance that has some pretty steamy scenes. Ava, Hunter , and Thomas have been through a lot together. They have known each other since like kindergarten . I don’t want to give anything away so im just going to be very blunt. You need to read this book to find out what happens next. There is a lot of moments my heart hurt for them. There is a couple of twists I didn’t see coming. Oh and if you haven’t already read the first I highly recommend reading it first. I look forward to reading more from this Author and hopefully this series.
When you have loved only two men in your life and they both happen to be your best friends, can a friendship survive?
Ava is from the infamous Rhodes family and although she has everything the thing she requires the most is love, while at college she finally gets her fantasy with her best friends with a night of pure passion but by morning everything changes.
After that fateful night Hunter has been trying to fight the demons from his past with trying to move forward. After working with Ava and Thomas for years he now has to ask for forgiveness or will there relationship be lost forever.
Thomas has always struggled with understanding what happened that night, what caused Hunter to run for the hills and because of that his relationship with Ava had fizzled out over the years, but when a letter and a box of letters appears on his doorstep can he find it in his heart to forgive and forget and get back the only people he has ever truly loved.
The first book in this series was brilliant but I think I loved this book more, Ava is such a great strong character within the first book you know there must be a story behind her coldness. The three of them together have great chemistry and although the story in arced with Shattered the first book it does not loss its own flow for their story.
I can’t wait to read the other books in this series and with there being other siblings that are just as interesting in Ava and Gabe I can’t wait.
