Book Blurb :
Grace Hunter is trained in survival and doesn’t need anyone to protect her from the anarchy that results after the EMP. But still, she is stuck confined in an underground shelter with three men—Steven “Sarge” Connelley, Van Goodwin, and Luke Evers—all totally different, all powerfully sexy. Together, the group faces the threats of the deadly city above ground. Individually, each man succeeds in seducing her. And before long, all three want Grace for himself alone. Animosity inside the shelter grows unbearable until Grace finally resolves to end it once and for all…and simply vanishes without a trace.
It takes months for the men to eventually realize that Grace left them willingly. When they do, hostilities flare between them again. They fight each other, and then fight together to muddle through the complexities of sex, love, and their own egos to forge an arrangement that could make them all happy.
This is a book about one woman and three men learning to live together after an EMP pulse hits and devastates the United States. Grace Hunter knows how to survive physically after a disaster. Her father has trained her very well in the matters of survival. When a man shows up claiming that her father had asked him to look out for her if anything were to happen and he could not be there himself arrives, she feels that she can do just as well without him as she can with him.
Her father is a truck driver and has been afraid for her to be alone in a disaster situation. Now she does not know if he survived the EMP pulse. The man before her is Stephen “Sarge” Connelley, and she immediately feels that he is an arrogant and dominating man. While learning to deal with Sarge she also meets Van Goodwin and Luke Evers. She feels conflicted because she is sexually attracted to all three men. Within a short period of time, she gets in a relationship with all three men, and they start to fight over her.
Unable to deal with their fighting, and feeling that since she is the cause she should leave, she does. She goes back home to where her father had set up their own shelter. Once there she finds trouble in the form of her ex-boyfriend.
Sarge Connolly, Van Goodwin and Luke Evers are left on their own to deal with each other after Grace departs. They fight amongst each other again and again, finger-pointing as to who is to blame for her leaving. Over time, they realize that the pressures they put on Grace and their insistence in trying to make her pick one of them, instead of staying with all of them, has made her run. They regret that she has left, and that they are the ones that drove her away. They realize that it doesn’t matter what they want, it matters what Grace wants. But now they have to find her and save her to allow her make her own choices. They vow to find a way to work things out and to coexist peacefully … or as peacefully as three men and one woman can!
This story is action from the word go; you can see what is happening with the characters who, of course, can’t see what is coming and so are left to deal and react as any normal person would if this societal breakdown was happening in real life. The troubles of a man and woman’s relationship are multiplied by three in the story. Therefore there are three times the trouble and three times the fun. Trying to learn to get along takes a lot of work on everyone’s part. They realize that there has to be give and take in the whole relationship and not just between two people.
The book makes you wonder sometimes if a relationship like this is worth it, especially the troubles and heartaches you might go through. But in the end, happily ever after is achieved.
The story turns out well in the end, but the conflicts and the drama of daily life surviving in a disaster-torn world combined with dealing with a four-person relationship takes a lot of hard work. The story is well rounded and the characters have a depth to them that is very real. There is no feeling reading Seduced By Three that this is fake or contrived. It is just one woman and three men trying to survive and be a family.
I give this book four couples. The only reason it does not get five is because I wish that there were more to the end of the story. I would have liked knowing more about Grace’s child and how the men deal with fatherhood. Also, I’d like to know whether or not the country is able to make a rebound from what has transpired. I would also have liked to find out if her father survived too. I recommend that you get this book and read it. I think you’ll find it fascinating from the cover to the very last page.
