Blurb:
After news that he’s gay spreads though his homophobic hometown, leaving his restaurant in trouble, Wilson Curtis goes to Key West alone. He meets Simon and Adam, and is soon invited into their bed for some vacation fun.
Once isn’t enough, and they get to know each other in and out of the bedroom. Ten days is all it takes to change their lives. When Wil’s vacation time is up, none of them are ready to say good-bye. They’ll have to conquer misunderstandings, miscommunication, and the judgment of friends and foes alike who don’t understand their relationship, but these three know that what they have is worth fighting for.
Tell us about Three’s Company:
The original idea for this story came from a friend of mine, Brenda (who the novel is dedicated to) who sent me pic after pic of sexy beach/sun-kissed boys until I agreed to write it.  Originally, the concept started as some pretty cabana boys who lived a free life with little to no responsibility. Being a couple, they worked at a resort together, surfed together and partied together, and the third man was going to be a worn-out doctor or some other similar professional looking for something he didn’t know he was missing. 
But that’s not how this story ended up. At all.
There are some similarities to the original concept, and the basis is the same (existing couple introduce a third man into their relationship) but that’s about where the original plot outline similarities end. In Three’s Company, Wilson Curtis travels to Key West by himself to escape a not-so-pleasant life back home. His business is in tatters, he’s suddenly single and the entire town has snubbed him.  He meets Adam and Simon, who work at the hotel he’s staying at, and they invite him into their bed.
What starts out as a one night stand, soon becomes a holiday fling and like all my stories, there is a light on angst, heavy on love, kind of sweetness.  There seems to be more sex than I remember writing… and truthfully, not much happens outside of these three boys. There’s no major external drama, it’s mostly about these three men and how they adjust to being a threesome than some huge twisted plot.
Who was the inspiration for the characters?
Wilson Curtis is a small-town with a certain naivety that makes him adorable. I pictured Luke McFarlane for Wil.
Adam Preston is the always smiling, always happy, swimmer/surfer. He’s charming, and it’s impossible not to like him.  I pictured Simon Baker for Adam.
Simon Stanford is the serious, business minded one. He’s smart, independent and oh-so lovely.  I pictured a short-haired, clean-shaven Jared Leto for Simon.
Why m/m/m?
Why not?  LOL  I never actually had any driving desire to write ménage. It wasn’t something I deliberately set out to conquer.  As previously mentioned, I’d brainstormed with a friend about three boys on some tropical secluded setting – and by brainstorming, I mean posted a ton of threesome pics and watched a LOT of “research” on the subject matter.  
But at the end of the day, it wasn’t a conscious decision. These boys had a story that was just itching to be written.
I did some research into polygamous relationships, of course, and found the dynamics fascinating.  Not so much the ones where the husband had wives he numbered One, Two and Three, but the types of relationships that evolved from being a couple, to include a third person as a permanent fixture in their lives. I loved the idea that the first couple is so secure in their relationship and where they are in their lives, that they’re not threatened by the introduction of someone new.  
I loved how there is no boundaries to love.  There’s no right or wrong, only the way they feel, and I hope I conveyed that in this story.
Excerpt
And by the time Adam knocked on my door, I’d done some thinking. I knew he had two days off, and I knew it was very possible we’d spend those two days in bed. I let him in, and he grinned. “Ready for the best day ever?”
I smiled at him. It was impossible not to. “First, I think we need to set some rules.”
Adam blinked. “Huh?”
I shook my head at his reaction. “Rules.”
Ten minutes later, he’d dragged Simon into my room. “Can you please tell him? You tell him how I don’t like rules.”
Simon laughed, and looked at me. “What rules?”
I took a deep breath and told Simon what I’d just told Adam. “I don’t think we should have sex when it’s not the three of us.”
Adam looked at Simon and cried, “See? I told you it was ridiculous!”
Simon smiled at Adam then looked at me. “Why?”
“I just thought it would be unfair to the person who’s sitting out.” Then I clarified, “But not me. You two can do what you want without me. I mean, you’re a couple. I’m just the third wheel.”
Adam put his hands on his hips. “You’re not a fucking third wheel,” he huffed, and then he looked at Simon. “See?”
I laughed at Adam. He was like a kid who wasn’t allowed candy.
“Look, Adam,” I said gently, “what I mean is, you and I have two days together while Simon has to work. That’s hardly fair to him. He’ll be wondering what we’re doing.” Then I whispered, “And how we’re doing it.”
Adam looked at Simon and pouted. “Oh.”
I walked up to him, standing closer so I could look in his eyes. “Just imagine if Simon had a day off while you had to work, and we spent it together, locked away in a bedroom, for hours and hours,”—I groaned for effect— “and hours.”
Adam frowned.
I cupped his face in my hands. “You wouldn’t like that, would you? Wondering what we were doing without you?”
He shook his head slowly. “Not really.”
“But we can kiss,” I conceded. “And make out.”
Adam looked suddenly hopeful. “Blow jobs?”
I snorted out a laugh and looked at Simon, who shrugged.
“Oh, thank God.” Adam groaned, unbuttoning his cargos. Sliding his hand under his briefs, he freed his semihard dick.
My mouth fell open in shock at his blatant suggestion. Simon laughed then clicked his tongue. “Rules are rules. Blow jobs are allowed, Wil.”
I looked at him, trying to gauge his reaction. “Are you sure you’re okay with this?”
Simon smiled and nodded.
Adam looked at Simon and pumped his cock. “Did you wanna watch?”
Simon looked at the time. “I’ve got about two minutes.”
Adam grabbed my jaw with his free hand and pulled me in for a quick, hard kiss. “With this mouth, that won’t be a problem.”
I dropped to my knees. I took his beautiful cock in eagerly, sucking and licking for all my worth. Grunting and groaning and with his hands around my jaw, he came down my throat. He didn’t last the two minutes, not that I was counting.
And when I looked up, Simon was staring at me. He leaned down and kissed me, tasting Adam in my mouth.
His eyes were dark and heavy-lidded, and he licked his lips. “I’m sure I could spare another two minutes.”
I grinned and unzipped his pants.
What’s next from N.R. Walker?
My next release is a novel length drama titled Blind Faith, and it comes out late January 2013 with Silver. I’ve written its sequel, which I’m hoping to sub soon.  I’m also participating in NaNo this year and my aim is to complete the majority of the sequel to Point of No Return. I also have some free-reads I’m getting ready to post with Silver Publishing in the next few weeks and I can divulge more info on that when I know more.

  1. Great blog – and thanks for the background information, NJ. I loved reading the book, so this as a fun "extra". 🙂

  2. I love M/M/M. I snatched this puppy up when it hit the pre-order site and read it the day it came out. LOVED it.I do have a question though. Mr. Closest Cop, will we see him in the future? As much as I wanted Wil to rub his good fortune in Closet Cop's face, I sorta for sorry for him. I would be interested to see the world from his POV.~hugs~ Lexi

  3. Cool – great interview ^_^

  4. Whew, that's one helluva excerpt. Wishing you much success with your release N.R. 😉

  5. Congrats N.R. – all the best with your new title. Sounds like much work went into writing it.
