When Lily Howard agrees to meet the man she is having a powerfully erotic online affair with, she subsequently walks into a crime scene. Sexy police officer Seth Jones takes her into witness protection together with her online lover, Adrian Walsh, a man with crucial evidence for a court case.
Deep in the heart of the Welsh countryside and locked up in a secluded hideaway with these two men — one alpha dominant policeman, and a wry, sensitive accountant who knows her every secret erotic desire — Lily soon becomes embroiled in a torrid ménage à trois that surpasses her every fantasy. Lily is wildly empowered by living her innermost desires in the safety of the hideaway. Adrian is the key that unlocks her sexuality, and Seth is the master who sets them both free.
As danger stalks ever closer and the three lovers are torn apart, they each find that deep emotional bonds have also been forged. Can Lily ever forget what they shared? Does she even want to?
Setting London and Wales, UK.
Lily Howard's involved in a virtual affair with a man just known to her as A.W. When the story opens she's thrown off guard when A.W.-Adrian Walsh, asks to meet her in person. She agrees to somewhere public (his office) and on the understanding that if she doesn't feel attracted to him, she can just walk away, no questions asked.
Adrian is an accountant who's got himself into a dilemma. One of his clients is involved in illegal overseas exports and realizes he has no choice but inform the police.
The following day, Witness Protection Officer, Seth Jones is at Adrian's office trying to convince him to go into protective custody because he might be in danger. In walks, Lily who has no idea who is who. Due to unfortunate circumstances, Seth wastes no time whisking both Adrian and Lily into protective custody and heads to a hotel in North Wales. Cooped up together, Seth is attracted to Lily. Lily is attracted to both men and soon the three of them begin a relationship.
I really enjoyed the story. Many plots in this genre rely on just the sexual relationship and never focus on an actual story, but this one delivered on both counts. It's a sexy ménage story with a suspenseful plot intertwined within it. The characters are all very likeable. The dialogue is very natural sounding, and the pacing ideal for this genre.
Some chapter endings had me worried about the welfare of these three people which is always a good sign and kudos to Ms. Walker for making me feel on edge as I read this story. In fact, all through this book I kept thinking about how this was going to end and who Lily would ultimately end up with. I can't give away the ending but let me just say it's very satisfying.
If you're looking for a sexy story with a good plot and not just page after page of descriptions of sexual acts, I recommend Inescapable to you.
