review || THE THEORY OF DEVIANCE { blog tour } by Rebecca Grace Allen

Samhain Publishing, Ltd | August 2, 2016 Contemporary Romance
Portland Rebels, book 3

Deviance is unacceptable. It's taboo. And it's the one thing he's always wanted.

Painful shyness isn't the only reason Mikey Pelletier is a twenty-five-year-old virgin. Between working for his parents and volunteering at his church, he neither has the time nor the inclination to admit his bisexuality to the world—or to himself.

A visit from Krissy Porter will hopefully fix everything. After three months of chatting with her, Mikey's got one carefully planned week to win her heart and lose his V-card. He's hoping he can pull it off, even with her roommate along for the ride.

Krissy has been drawn to Mikey for a while. He's so easygoing, she thinks he could be the calm in her storm. But there's an extra complication when she comes to visit: her friend-with-benefits, "hetero-flexible" roommate, Rafe.

During a week of revelations, intimacy, and kink, Krissy and Rafe become the angel and devil on Mikey's shoulders, tempting him in different directions. And all three of them discover that a week of pure deviance can lead to the most uncontrollable emotion of all: love.

Warning: This book contains innocent board game-playing that takes a sexy turn, use of recreational substances, back-door action, and some smokin' hot threesomes. Plus, scenes of inner-demon slaying. Fans and tissues advised.

The Hierarchy of Needs was a book that sat on my virtual shelves and I regretted it the moment I picked it up. I fell in love with the characters and couldn't wait to continue the series. Unfortunately, when The Theory of Deviance's cover was released, I felt incredibly let down. And then I hemmed and hawed on whether I was going to read it. It's not a trope I enjoy, let alone understand, in the least bit. But I gave it a shot because I liked the author's writing style and the world these books take place in.

I did enjoy the self-discovery, the allowing himself to be who he was, of Mikey, our main male character, just as I enjoyed Krissy and Rafe and the demons they brought to the table. I personally felt that this group of three people was a bit of a walking disaster, but they did find acceptance among one another, and I that is a beautiful thing. RGA's ability to bring to life issues that are prevalent in the world today, was great. I think she did a wonderful job with the story; I just have a hard time handling the more than two characters thing.
