Grace Hunter was trained in survival and didn’t need anyone to protect her from the anarchy that resulted after the EMP. But still, she was stuck confined in an underground shelter with three men—all totally different, all powerfully sexy. Together, the group faced the threats of the deadly city above ground.
Over time, each man succeeded in seducing Grace. And before long, all three wanted her for himself alone. Animosity inside the shelter grew unbearable until Grace finally resolved to end it once and for all… and simply vanished without a trace.
It took months for the men to eventually realize that Grace had left them willingly. When they did, hostilities flared between them again. They fought each other, and then fought together to muddle through the complexities of sex, love and their own egos to forge an arrangement that could make them all happy.[Menage Amour: Erotic Menage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, bondage, spanking, HEA] **
Let me start off saying that the old phrase “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” holds true for both books I’ve read by Sylvia Ryan. Yes the cover for Seduced by Three is not great but the story under it is.
Seduced by Three plot and world is tied into another Ryan book, Saved by One, Shared by Two. But where Saved is set in the country, Seduced takes place in the city and has much more darker and suspenseful elements. One of guys in Saved was mentioned in Seduced so it was great seeing what happen to him in this tale.
Ryan paints a dystopian US much like that of the NBC’s Revolution or AMC’s The Walking Dead (minus the walkers). Where the US is plagued with an end of the world situation when an EMP hits taking out everything electronic. No power, no water, no cars, etc.
While the country goes to crap on a cracker, Sarge one of the men is tasked with the promise he made to his friend about protecting his daughter if something like this happens while he is out on the road for work. Apparently all those conspiracy theories and survival tactics was good to have.
So Sarge makes his way from his house to his friends on foot. He finds the college age daughter alone in the house … in her thong and tank asleep on the bed. What? It’s hot, so she has to keep cool somehow.
Anyway Sarge takes Grace back to his shelter in his house. This shelter is cool. He bricked up his basement and made a secret door to it in his closet. This guy is prepared. But what Sarge is not prepared for is having feelings for Grace and then learning to have to share her with two other guys that enter their life.
Seduced by Three has it all. Not one but three sexy guys willing to do anything to protect the leading lady, even agree to sharing her. A leading lady that can protect herself with great shooting skills. Suspense around very corner while the group has to fight off others trying to take what is their’s. Oh, and hot one on one sex and a group sex scene as well.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
