Some secrets refuse to stay hidden.
Lacey Daughtry’s perfect weekend is interrupted by tragic news of her brother’s murder in the line of duty. Plagued by a rash of mysterious phone calls, she turns to her brother’s best friends and fellow officers for protection…and comfort.
Spending time in close contact with Mason and Tyler, the two men she’s dreamed of since her first girlhood crush, seems like the answer to a prayer. Especially when they begin to explore the desire she’s harbored for so long.
But the partners are holding out on Lacey. Determined to suppress the most extreme facets of their lust, they agree to settle for sharing the woman they crave while concealing their desire for each other. Until Lacey cracks their resolve, unleashing a torrent of emotions that threatens to distract them when they can least afford it.
Their blossoming relationship is complicated by secrets. And the only way to evade the killer threatening their lives is to bare their souls in the darkest hours of the night. Or everything will come crashing down, just before the dawn.
I guess this would be classified as “erotic romance” but it also fits into the “crime fiction” genre and that’s what makes it so good. While there is a LOT of sex, and not your run of the mill male to female vanilla sex, it worked well with the storyline. Maybe I’m becoming more in tune with the erotic romance genre and realize that the authors are giving readers what they want because this is the second book that I’ve read lately with a prominent threesome.
The chemistry between Lacey and her brother’s two male best friends is electric and Mason and Tyler have the same kind of chemistry for each other.
Together they cope with the death of Lacey’s brother and a fellow policeman and piece together who killed him and why. It’s a very good story with well-defined characters and a romance that is somewhat believable. I mean, it all depends on if you mind sharing your sexual partner or spouse.
This is the first in the Men in Blue series but I haven’t decided if I’ll read any of the others. This one is a good stand alone.
