About The Loft Book Two

Tate and Sebastian spend more and more time at their boyfriend/Dom James’ home but when they receive a notice of eviction from their apartment they hesitate to examine the obvious solution - moving in with James. In the meantime, James and his longtime friend Catherine plan an elaborate fetish party at Catherine’s club in Gatineau - La Petite Mort. Tate is apprehensive and James does what he can to allay his fears, including taking both young men to the club on an ordinary night. But an ordinary night with James proves anything but as he indulges his love of sexual game-playing.

Don't miss my interview with Elizabeth Lister where she chats about the boys from The Loft Trilogy!



No other series I’ve read about a menage relationship compares to the depth Elizabeth Lister goes into exploring the men from her stories in The James Lucas and The Loft trilogies. The Loft series itself explores these characters and their relationship and serves to bridge some gaps in the original series. Tate, Sebastian and James grow and change in so many ways together over the course of these books and it is a thrill to get to know them and experience the intricacies and dynamics of their threesome through Lister’s beautifully written stories. Each of the books in these two series is unique, but to get the full enjoyment out of them I strongly recommend reading the books in order.

Events in The Loft Book Two take place toward the end of The Cross and the Trinity story when Tate and Sebastian are in the early stages of their committed menage relationship with James, and still learning quite a bit about each other. This book provides some explanation of how Sebastian and James’ relationship gets to where it is in A Numinous Light.

The book begins with a charming skating scene where the boys are delighted by James’ uncharacteristic lack of perfection at the sport. The banter between the characters shows how the love between them has grown, and their relationship is ready to move to the next level.

James’ devotion to Tate and Sebastian, his outward pride about their union, and his honesty in admitting his own feelings is wonderful to see during the events of this book.

Unbeknownst to Tate, we discover James has worked independently with Sebastian to define his desires. James makes sure there are plenty of scenarios to ensure Sebastian’s needs are met, and their play during The Loft Two definitely makes this clear. *winks* The growth their relationship undergoes is pivotal in making Sebastian’s character an equal part of the trio, and knowing Sebastian is able to ask for, explore, and find what he needs makes me so happy.

I was intrigued by Sebastian’s character from the moment he opened the door to Tate at James’ home in Beyond the Edge. Drop dead gorgeous, Sebastian’s perfect submission and interesting kinks attract Tate straight away and make him a natural addition to their play.

As the relationships between the men grow, both as couples and as a menage, it becomes clear their dynamic is best as a trio.

As with each book Elizabeth Lister writes, the characters have a great deal of fun together. James is adorable when he’s playful, he has so much fun with ‘bratty Tate’. And when he signs a note to the boys, “xo and a slap on the rear”, I couldn’t help but laugh (ever the romantic lol).

I’m sure I don’t even need to mention that the sex scenes are off the charts hot and as creative as ever!

I can hardly wait to see where these guys will go in The Loft Three, though I am truly brokenhearted to hear Elizabeth Lister declare that it will be the final installment in the story of Tate, Sebastian, and James. I can’t recommend this beautifully written series, or The Loft Book Two, enough and I’d give it ten stars if I could.
