She expects dinner with neighbors—but gets sex with a side of safewords.
Fantasies about her sexy neighbors spice up Alice's nights, even a year after she's moved in. She can't decide whether the men are roommates or partners, but either way, they spark a wanton desire in this mechanical engineer that has her imagination—and vibrator—working overtime.
Henry, director of everything around him, studies human nature and applies philosophies to his paintings as well as his relationships. Quirky and polite to a fault, he follows his own code of honor even when it means denying himself.
Charming and playful, Jay craves stability, guidance, and the chance to please others. His antics counterbalance Henry's formal ways and bring vulnerability and fun to the trio's adventures.
BDSM play with the enigmatic artist and flirtatious joker across the hall allows Alice to quiet the too-logical mind that has kept her unsatisfied and distant with other lovers. She must reconsider her notions of love, submission, and independence if she's to find a permanent place in their bed and hearts.
