One of my favorite people has a saying about glitter. She calls it
‘the gift that keeps on giving’ and breaks it out every single time
we have a craft that just might need a little sparkle. She also says
it makes her happy when she sees specks of glitter in the carpet
because it reminds her of fun in the past.
Lately I’ve been thinking about how new love can be like glitter.
New love sparkles and infiltrates every part of life. Maybe the new
honey is out of sight, but everything reminds you of them—like the
cute puppy on the toilet paper package or the smiley face on the
poster at the gas station. The new love glitter is everywhere!
But what about when the shine starts to dull? Maybe the new love is
a decade old. The glitter of new love has been ground into the
carpet for a few years. The toilet paper with the puppy on the
package is freaking expensive and the posters at the gas station
proclaim just how horrid gas prices really are—bye bye sparkle—hello
Love in the way of the everyday life needs not be boring! Oh no, my
friends. Everyday love, the kind that lasts decades and ages like a
fine wine might not be exciting every single day, but it can be sooo
much more than mundane. What you need to do is get yourself a bottle
Make your life a little romance novelie. The gambit of what people
find romantic and special runs wild, but the unifying piece is that
special thought and time is put into making your partner feel
special. Like glitter, that special feeling lasts and lasts and it
keeps on giving. Be silly, be kind, be spontaneous.
And don’t just expect your partner to do it. Sometimes opening
that glitter bottle is a daunting task when you’ve left it on the
shelf for a while. It’s messy and it can take a lot of work. But
have you ever looked at a sparkly project and thought it would be

Blurb: Two is enough, but three
could be everything.
Kit and Adam Jacobs know what
their marriage needs—Gavan Karik. He’s the one man they both want
and the only one who can make their relationship complete.
Making Gav part of the family
comes with a price. Family, infidelity and self-worth issues
plague Gav, but Adam and Kit are willing to tackle those issues if
Gav is willing to commit.
For every problem they conquer,
another one pops up. Not only are the three adults working to meld
a broken family into one, they’re also struggling with a
blackmailer threatening to out the two men’s sexuality and issues
with the kids being mistreated at school. With each battle all
three have to decide if the vision each sees for the future can
match and if the reward is worth the fight.

“And the sleeping arrangements?” Gav asked.
Adam knew this question had been weighing on the other man. Gav had
played thirds in relationships before. Usually, the third was a
plaything, in for pleasure, out for the intimacy.
“You'd be in our room. The ‘our' would include you,” Adam told him.
“I'll steal your t-shirts to wear to bed, and we'll share the task
of warming Kit's cold toes every night. We'll have amazing sex when
we're all in the mood together. We'll have nearly as amazing sex in
pairs if the third is in the mood to watch or sleep. There won't be
favorites, but, because we've been together so long, Kit and I might
slip up there on occasion. You'll have to be patient with us, Gav.”
“And once our open relationship includes you,” Kit said, “it turns
into a closed one. We don't cheat or lie, and we tell each other if
our needs change.”
Adam watched to see what Gav's reaction to that big rule would be.
It was one he supported wholeheartedly.
“I don't know.” Gav didn't look past his hands at either of them as
he spoke. “I'll think about it. There's nothing in there I don't
think I can do, I just…I need to think.”
