3.5 stars-- Three the Hard Way (ACRO #7) by Sydney Croft

Yall! This was one of the first erotic series I devoured back before the blog. I seriously love me some ACRO. It's all about humans with special enhanced abilities that do all kinds of sexy super hero things. I'd been holding off on Three the Hard Way because I'm really not into mm. And, while it was a decent action packed--in more ways than one--novella it confirmed that, yeah, mm, totally not my thing.
The Gist: Needing to be Both your exes-- the betraying bastards!-- showing up and getting trapped in a one bedroom Alaskan bunker during a blizzard together? Fuck a duck. Seriously?
Drama! Sexy, angry, alpha male drama. Times three. lol Yeah, Ian, Tag and Justice have some angst happening. Poor Tag. Faced with both the men he's loved and who betrayed him. And the two guys instantly hating one another over what the other had done to Tag in the past. Yeah. It's messy and angry and all that bubbles up to fucking the hell out of each other while they wait out the storm. And doing so often. lol
Four years after losing Justice, Tag's body was reacting as if they were still together and nothing had changed. A if Justice hadn't all but destroyed him.

Clearly, Justice hadn't destroyed his dick because it was all, I'm so happy to see you!
And things do get steamy. Pairing off and all together. I think if that's your thing it was probably hot but it's just not mine so I trudged through the sexy bits. Not an easy feat when you've got three horny pissed off men.

There's lots of anger and betrayal dealt with, hurt feelings and past sins to work through. Not to mention a raging blizzard and an evil agency that's barreling down on them.

All in all, if you love the series and enjoy M/M romance/menage I'd say go for it. Three the Hard Way was a quick read and fine entertainment. Just wasn't quite my deal.
Lovers Taggart Brody and Justice McKinney possess special abilities that make them valuable to agencies who employ—or enslave—people with extraordinary talents. When tragedy tears them apart, Justice finds purpose working for the good guys: ACRO, the super-secret Agency for Covert Rare Operatives. But he never forgets Taggart or the past they once shared.

Heartbroken, Taggart runs from who he is . . . right into the arms of Ian Bridges. But Ian, battling his own demons, betrays Tag to the terrorist organization Itor. After months of torture, Tag manages to escape, but kills an ACRO agent in the process.

With nowhere left to turn, Tag disappears into the Alaskan wilderness, but it’s only a matter of time before his enemies track him down. He reaches out to Justice, and somehow Ian finds him too, hoping to right his wrongs. With ACRO and Itor both bearing down, the three men must figure out how to forgive, how to work together, and how to love each other—or the coming battle will destroy them all.
