For me, this started out on a high. And then I got a little bored. Then it got good again. When I first started it, there was this intense sexual tension. I liked that part. But then they didn't actually DO anything until over halfway through, and the first time they had intercourse was at 67% I think. And I wouldn't normally complain about that -- sexual tension can sometimes be half the fun. My problem was that while they weren't doing it, they were thinking such flowery things about each othe ...more

Notes after finishing the book: ****
I won't say this was the best story ever, but it was certainly more than I expected. I have had this book for a while and finally gave it a chance. I liked LLeigh's writing style. (BTW this book has explicit material, and is not for the faint of heart.) I haven't liked ménage books, (Ive only attempted two before, and I did not finish either). However, the scenes in this book were well-written. I liked that the author took her time getting the read

The UPS man showed up yesterday with my book. I happily trumped all the other books in my queue to read this one. Ms. Leigh delivers again with a sweet menage with a hint of danger. This book seems to be more focused on family and betrayals. I don't understand or know the culture which Abram comes from so I can't tell if any of this is plausible. All I know is, it's pretty bad to be a woman in that culture if a guy is cruel, sadistic and insane. There is no balance or protection. This morality p ...more
As a ‘Bound Heart’ ménage story, this book was disappointing. As a suspense/romance it was pretty good and I did enjoy it….although there were parts that seemed to be missing here and there and left me a wee bit confused….which I’ve come to expect with LL’s latest books.

Paige has been in love with Abram since she was 18. He’s been attracted to her too, but has had to keep his feelings a secret so his crazy powerful father won’t find out and kill her or use her as bait to bring him to heel; Thei
Sadly, Meh.
I am a Bound Hearts fan. I even enjoyed Khalid's story where others felt let down. But this one threw me for a loop. There were multiple inconsistencies. Jafar has a female spy with Donover, but had to ask Chalah where Paige was? So the spy knew all kinds of small details but not something as big as who they were protecting? um. no.
And Abram tells us he left Paige and Tariq alone because he couldn't trust himself with her. But later it's because they were supposed to be getting fa
At the beginning, there was so much potential, a lot of Khalid (who I love) but the story pacing slowed waaaaaay down and the sexy and steaminess that this series is known for was really lacking. Really. Lacking. The plot was hard to follow and there were a lot of characters to keep track of. It's a very underwhelming story and I'll hesitate to pick up the next book. It will really depend on who the leads are.

Twelfth in the Bound Hearts erotic series usually based around the Sinclair Club. I think Leigh used the word Sinclair once or twice in this story. Khalid and Marty have been engaged for a few months now.

The Story
It musta been dangerous. So dangerous that Leigh couldn't take the time to bother with expanding past her outline. It's the only excuse I can come up with as to the lousy job Leigh's done in creating this story. Hardly anything holds together.

Why would Paige lose her job? One. All she h

Dark. Dangerous, and plotting the downfall of the bitter, evil old man that calls him son, Abram Mustafa, Khalid's, half brother on his father's side will not face the most dangerous test of his life. And his heart. When his father kidnaps Khalid's beloved half sister by his mother, and brings her to his Saudi village as a hostage against his son's defection, Abram knows his plans for escap

Who would've ever thought I'd be reviewing a Lora Leigh book and saying "What the hell happened??? Noooooo steam!!!!". But I am sad to say I was extremely disappointed with this book. After the last few books in this series have been really good, really steamy, with great plots, great characters and over the top excellent sex, I expected a really good read.

Instead we get this washed out story, with like 2 or 3 sex scenes TOTAL in the whole book, and that
No, no, no, e ancora NO!
Basta, questo è l'ultimo libro della serie che leggo!
Noiosissimo, è stata una fatica arrivare al termine.
Troppi personaggi: fratelli, fratellastri, cugini, cugini di cugini, conoscenti etc... Ci voleva una mappa per ricordarseli tutti.
Troppi eventi: rapimenti, tradimenti, evasioni dall'harem, sparatorie, uccisioni, salvataggi in elicottero... se fossero stati descritti in maniera diversa sarebbe anche potuta andare, invece il tutto non coinvolge neanche un po'.

I love the Mustafa brothers! raw-mysterious-sensual-passionate-loyalty to a fault.

I thoroughly enjoyed Abram's story even though it made me nervous as heck. He's the epitome of fierceless. I felt the chemistry btwn him and Paige was patiently nourished, built and then overflowed with love and passion. Imagined Khalid having to explain the love btwn his brother and sister made wrong... Is that why he kept and insisted them apart? just the opposite, he truly loved them both and
This book was frustrating, confusing and unsettling to read. I enjoyed Lora Leigh's "Only Pleasure," which involves one of the characters--Khalid--from this story. In "Only Pleasure" Khalid is the best friend of the main male protagonist (Abram). In "Dangerous Pleasures" he is the half-brother of the main female protagonist (Paige). I found all these half-brother, half-sister, and cousin relationships taking place in the setting of Saudi Arabia in "Dangerous Pleasures" extremely confusing. They ...more
Good story, liked that it all related to the others, but I felt like I was missing something, like maybe another book that gave more insight into this story. I really like where this is heading, if she continues to write this series, so I am looking forward to that. But I recommend reading Khalid's story at least before you read this one, as he is a big part of this story.
Continuation of the menage series...Abram Mustafa and Paige Galbraithe (and Tariq). Crazy Azir Mustafa is still trying to manipulate and/or kill his sons. Very sizzling scenes! Confusing kidnaps and travel back and forth between U.S. and Middle East. Brief glimpses of Khalid and Marty. Good read.
I feel very much unsatisfied. I had high expectations for Abram's story and unfortunately the final result didn't come close enough to my tastes.
I practically found the storyline messy and tortuos and very hard to follow. Lora Leigh put together a lot of different things without exhaustive explanations nor well developed. Moreover, she was contradictory in more than one occasion.
As for the characters, I didn't find them appealing, and Abram and Paige's relationship was very rushed and lacked of
3.00/4.00 not your typical Lora Leigh. Very heavy on the terrorist/kidnapping plot and VERY light on the character development, romance and love scenes. My least favorite of this series...then again each new book in the series seems to be worse than the last. Am losing interest in it.
Overall a good book but there were a few unanswered questions in the end. Hopefully the series will continue and they will be answered.
Rough being Abram's Lover

Paige had been in love with Abram since she was in her teens. Her brother Khalid prohibited that relationship because he knew who and what his brother Abram was. Khalid, brother to Abram and brother to Paige, though Paige and Abram were not related, had an alternate lifestyle like Abram that he did not want his sister to get involve in. Fate stepped in, Paige was kidnapped by their insane father and held captive in the Saudi fortress that was home. Abram had to return to
Steaming hot, suspense. Loved it!

I am not sure why I was hesitate to read this book. I guess it was because I didn't know the characters and had not invested any emotional energy into their story. After reading the story I have to wonder if Ms. Leigh is setting up a couple of more books. The characters of Jafar and Chalah were very moving and emotional. I have to wonder what will happen to the brother and sister. I also have to wonder if Tariq will find a woman that he can love and cherish. I did come to care a great deal for P ...more
I think I am over Lora Leigh for a while. Her books used to be so thrilling and different. This book didn't do it for me. I feel bad saying this as I have previously liked the majority of her books and feel I should like this one. The storyline was good, the characters flowed. Yet it still felt fragmented. There was one part where the characters are doing something then BAM they are suddenly on the run. Loud rock music was plaing in the story (to what end I don't know) and it just wasn't explain ...more
Of all the Bound Hearts books, this one was more on the story than the sex. It makes me wonder if Leigh wants to continue this series and used this book to introduce more players.

Abram is Khalid's brother. They have the same father, different mother's and were born on the same day. Talk about twins!! Abram is the oldest and rightful heir to their father's Saudi kingdom. He's been beat up by having watched his father kill his mother, then having both his wives killed at the hands of his younger h
Abram Mustafa has never known a moment's peace where his father is concerned. Several hard times in his life taught him not to show weakness, because the people he cared about died at his father's and his allies hands. Still he cannot keep himself from wanting Paige Galbraithe, his half-brother Khalid's little sister. He makes excuses to stay away but he knows eventually he'll succumb to his desires for her.

Paige Galbraithe has been sheltered and protected her whole life. Years ago her mother es
3.5 would be more accurate.

The mystery aspect of this book was much more complex than previous books in the series - which I enjoyed. On the other hand there are a lot of little details that either don't add up or simply contradict one another; I won't go into detail - but know, they are many. I thought that the development of the relationship was inconsistent. Overall, I was really impressed with the increased strength in the complexity, I just wish that the details were seamless and also that
Abram and Paige have been fighting their mutual attraction for years, but for different reasons. Abram is concerned for her safety and preserving his relationship with his half brother Khalid. The issues that Paige faces are close the the same given that Khalid is also her half brother who doesn't approve of the relationship. Paige has no idea the potential danger she will truly be in if they act on the fire that is consuming them both. What neither of them realize, is that it is already too lat ...more
Sensuality: 5 of 5
Kink: bdsm & d/s, menage, anal

Ok if you haven't read this series before you may be a little lost in the backstory. You should at least read the previous one about Khalid since this book is a continuation of that book, plot line, and characters.

Well I went into this book knowing that there are mixed reviews and that I haven't been that happy about Lora's writing in her most recent books. A lot has been going on in her personal life so that has effected her writing (as it sh
This is a favorite series of mine. It seems that this series has been going on a very long time. Well I wonder if this is the end of a very good series. This book started of so awesome. And then it just kind of lost the energy that most of the bound books have. The story would have been really good had the steaminess of the usual bound books been there.

Paige has been in love with Abram forever. His half brother and Paige are siblings which makes it very awekward for them to have any kind of a re

Lora Leigh is and forever will be one of my favorite erotic romance authors of all time. She is one of those authors where I don't even need to know what the book is about before I buy it and normally the stories are so hot and juicy that I can finish one of her romances in 1 or 2 sittings. That being said, Dangerous Pleasure, book 12 of the Bound Hearts series, was disappointingly bad. The book before this one, Guilty Pleasure, was also not that good which is frustrating since Leigh finally sta ...more
Abram is Khalid's half brother from the last Bound Heart's book. They have the same father, Azir, who is a terrorist leader in Saudi Arabia. Khalid and Abram never took to their father or his beliefs, and as adults they have fought to end his regime. Earlier they had shared Abram's first wife whom their other brothers later murdered for revenge.

Abram is hesitant to ever love again, since his brothers had vowed to kill any woman that he got close to. However, he has loved Paige (Khalid's half si
