Review: Table for Three by Zoey Thames

Reviewed by Shelly

Josie Smith waits tables at a diner where Lucas Pearce and Dan Jackson (both billionaires) started frequenting every Friday night for the last six months. I’m not sure when Lucas and Dan realized that their interest in Josie went beyond than friendship. When the story starts, the time span has already happened so there’s a tremendous amount of story that’s told not shown.

The only thing about this story that I thought was interesting was that it was told from Josie and Lucas’s perspective. But even including Josie’s side of things she was more into the visual stimuli of Dan and Lucas together. So this read more as an m/m with a bit of ‘f’ thrown in for whatever reason.

Josie started out as a sensible character. She’s clearly hardworking but there’s no mention of life goals, ambitions anything outside of Dan, Lucas and her BOB. No character development at all. She was literally some chick in a diner who I could care less about. And then there’s the repetition about the size of her thighs and ass. I heard you the first five times, I promise.

Lucas and Dan – I have to put them together because I lost track of their differing personalities. It was just like one big mush. They’re both billionaires who have been in a relationship for years. They had a previous lady friend but she moved on. The story seemed more focused on their relationship that it did on them even being interested in Josie. There were moments I thought they were actually interested but those moments were quickly shut down. And if I heard any more about how much Lucas had a thing for Dan… argh! I got it the first ten times you said.

The ending for this was the most ridiculous plot point I’ve read in a long while and I feel dumber for having read it.

Rant. When I read the sample before buying I didn’t notice that this is a ‘billionaire’ story. When I read the blurb before buying I didn’t notice that this is a ‘billionaire’ story. I didn’t realize it was a ‘billionaire’ story until I added it to my Goodreads list but by then I’d already bought it and didn’t feel like returning it. I really should have read the information section a lot more closely that I did and when I finally did I should’ve just returned it. My iBooks (iPad) version said that this is 100 pages in length. I figured that’s enough pages with single lined text to give me a decent story. Well, I shouldn’t have assumed because the story ended on page 70. So what I paid ($2.99) wasn’t worth it. Not even a little bit.

Happy reading folks!
