Book Review: Bent For His Will by KyAnn Waters

Bent For His Will by KyAnn Waters is a m/m/f erotic romance. Logan Sawin and Will Pennington have been friends for years. They attend the same university and live together in a great loft apartment. Their friendship can withstand anything, except Renna Polo. Logan has never questioned his sexuality until he sees Renna, his girlfriend, in Will's arms. Will is gay. But what bothers Logan more, Will's hands on Renna...or Renna's hands on Will? Will has a dirty little secret...he's in love with his best friend. Yet, Logan isn't gay and Will isn't willing to risk their friendship to discover if Logan isn't quite straight, but may be a little bent. Renna is in love with Logan and is intrigued by Will. She accepts what Logan and Will can't...they belong together. But if Logan and Will take a chance on more, where does that leave her? Right where she wants to be, with Logan and the man he loves.

Bent For His Will is the first romance of this style that I have read, and I was pleasantly surprise. I will admit to starting the book and feeling a bit like it was going to erotica with very little character development since it started off with a sex scene. However, there was a great deal of relationship and personal growth. I loved that Logan, Will, and Renna all struggled, but were committed to be honest and open with each other about what they wanted and what they needed- something that is not always the case in romance novels or real life. The conversations, realizations, and personal struggles of all involved was very detailed and well done. I also like that it does not happen in a vacuum- they each had support systems in place to help them work out the individual issues they needed to come to terms with. I really love that while they had a solution, and everyone was content in the end, readers finished the book knowing while there might be issues or problems that come up in the future the trio would talk and work them through together. That openness and honesty is what really made me happy and enjoy the read. 

Bent For His Will is different from anything I have read before, in many ways. However, the honest character writing and their efforts to discuss and work out any problems impressed me. If only more real and fictional people would do the same.
