I felt like this story was on auto repeat with the charters thoughts, words and actions. I felt like I read the same story over and over in different ways the character could think up of the same info in their heads.

I wanted the threats and issues Jaci was dealing with. I didn't want Cam walking around like a 24/7 viagra ad. If he wasn't aroused, then he was big crankosourus- all broody, scowling, irritated, and he just couldn't stop thinking the same things and hiding his past through the whole

This book is erotica, so stop reading if that's not your thing.

This book was horribly written and edited. Really, the publisher should be ashamed and should fire the editor. What happened? Did she lose her red pen? Maybe she was angry with her employer and sent the manuscript through with nothing but proofreading? I don't know, but the end result is an unbelievably bad novel.

For one, the author seems to have a short list of words that she tried to work into nearly every paragraph as many times a

Man oh man, I loved my twins. Cam or Chase? I'm leaning towards Chase because he's funny, smart, fiercely loyal and he doesn't mind sharing. For instance, in bed. As for Cam? He's broody, grumpy, and bears his scars both inside and out. This is his story, by the way. Oh, and both my C-boys have mad bedroom skillz. Two for one, you really can't beat that deal.

Anyway, at times this was a tough book to get through. I really enjoyed it, but the writing was so freaking DENSE. It w

Hmmm…I really enjoyed it, but I definitely had my moments of frustration. Jaci has had her eye on Cam Falladay since she was a pre-pubescent girl. He was 15 and hurting, and it would be years until she learned the awful magnitude of why, but she did the best she could as a young girl and always made Cam smile. As Jaci began to mature and fill out, Cam noticed and finally decided to act on his feelings for her while on leave from duty. He drags her away to his place, things get hot and heavy, ...more

I was looking so forward to reading this book and I was not disappointed. Cameron Falladay is in love with Jaci Wright. He also likes to share his women with his twin brother Chase. Cameron is the victim of a terrible past that he has not shared with anyone. Throughout the book you can feel his pain. Jaci also had something horrible happen to her which she is not sharing with the twins. This book has romance, suspense and tender, emotional moments. Of course it also has alot of hot sex.

These two books are companion pieces and should be read in order or you'll be having several "huh?" moments with the plot in the second book. Excellent reads: suspenseful action, likable characters [it's so much fun to watch the heroes try to avoid 'commitment' - when they are already committed body and soul:] and definitely hot sex scenes.

You do no have to read the other books before these - the characters do make appearances and it would enrich your reading to kn

I love the background for the "Wicked..." novels. The Club outside Washington D.C. is a long-standing and extremely private organization. Its members share a certain notoriety that comes from being Fortune 500 CEOs, congressmen, and other famous movers and shakers. Its members also share the need to engage in sexual ménage activities with their female lovers/wives. Therein the extreme secrecy attached to The Club. Members sign confidentiality agreements and The Club has a ‘punitive committee’ co ...more

Lora Leigh is a favorite author of mine. No one writes a sex scene like her. She gives you a front seat into the sexual happenings of the characters. She usually matches the sex scenes with an equally scorching story.

What kept this book from being her usual 4 - 5 star novel:

1. Ms Leigh lost me when a 28 year old virgin involves herself in a menage. Her first penetration is anal without prep. Then minutes later she gets penetrated vaginally without prep. This double dicking is done without so muc

My first read by Lora Leigh.

okay so I did not see THAT coming... I still don't get why people likes threesomes or sharing your lover. Fine, it'll be more pleasurable for the female but shouldn't the POSSESIVENESS override the sharing?

To be fair, it is WAY better narrated than Haven of Obedience . There's emotional turmoils and inner struggles going on,
but really,
the males are just TOO masculine and TOO: I'm a man, I protect and I have my pride etc...

This was a pretty good book. Jaci Wright has loved Cameron Falladay as long as she could remember. When she was thirteen, she told her dark knight in no uncertain terms to wait for her to grow up that she loved him, and would always make the bad things go away. Shortly after her twenty first birthday, she had offered herself and her virginity to him, but when she couldn't be with both he and his twin Chase Jaci has been running from the Falladay twins, Chase and Cam, for seven years now.

I have nothing against threesomes or foursomes or fivesomes but I don't get why it's so "romantic" in books to have the main girl have sex with two men when she obviously loved only one of them. I get it if she had love both of them in terms of "I can't live without you-you both complete me" and not in a "You're both hot and you guys are a package deal" kind of way and she ends up with both twins at the end which is unlikely but hey, it's a twist.

Not my kind of erotica. This is totally unrealistic, messy and absurd.

Jaci has been good friends with twins Cam and Chase for awhile. She has been in love with Cam since she was 13 and he was 18.

"Wait on me, Cam. I'll grow up and I'll take all the bad things away"

Eight years later Jaci is hoping to see Cam at a party. Now that she is 21 he will not be making her go home like he use to. Or she thought. Cam is 26 now and has wanted Jaci for as long as he can remember. He wants to keep her safe and protected from other guys that come to these parties. This is when t

I don’t know what to say about this book. Someone else commented it was poorly edited and I have to agree with that. It was difficult to read, the language didn’t flow. I had to re-read some parts, and with the two male characters (Cam and Chase), having such similar names you lose track of who is doing what in the sex scenes - LOL, I think there were definitely some extra body parts being flung about.

There was quite a bit of a certain Act that is not in my preferred repertoire, so that may have

*WARNING: definately NOT for the concservative reader. Contains explicit sexual content and foul language*

Wicked Pleasure was a very fitting title. VERY HOT & EROTIC!! This book grabbed my attention from page 1 and didn't let go, I didn't want to put it down...I couldn't help but like the twins. My favorite was Chase with his sense of humor, but Cam was just as likeable with his outer hardness and inner protectiveness. And the "bad-boy" in both made them that much more enjoyable.

There's a place on everybody's bookshelf for a bit of good erotica, but this is not it. I can't for the life of me figure out why this woman's writing is so popular: this is angst-ridden teen melodrama with a lot of unrealistic sex thrown in. Everybody is emotionally tortured and anguished and the plot makes no sense at all. Worse still, the prose is as contorted as the silly story ("You never know what we all might learn that we haven't already"?!!!)

FINAL DECISION:  Filled with angst and drama, this is my favorite of the series. Cam is a tormented man desperately trying to keep the woman he loves without revealing his pain and torment. Sexy and emotional, this is a well rounded book.

THE STORY: Jaci Wright has loved Cam Falladay since she was a child but for seven years she has been running from Cam and his twin brother Chase.  When she was twenty one she thought that she was finally going to get the night she wanted with Cam until she found

There's more to this book than meets the eye. Three and a half stars, but don't let the synopsis fool you.

This one's a bit more lust-driven than my taste for erotica usually runs, but there's such a powerful story here that I don't want to discredit the book just because it isn't particularly suited to me. Your heart will ache for Cameron Falladay, even if you aren't certain til late in the book what exactly he endured as a teenager, and though there is graphic sex in the book, the author does a

Okay, so I’m not going to waste a lot of time with this review. WICKED PLEASURE was not a good book for me. I found it very difficult to keep up with the bipolar, dark, and controlling men. The plot was difficult and the characters way too complex.

Cam Falladay went through pretty horrific abuse by his aunt at the age of 15. After suffering through that and a stint in the army, his twin Chase can hardly recognize him.

There’s only one person who’s ever gotten to Cam and that’s Jaci Wright. She’s

I checked this book out following a conversation about erotic fiction with a fellow librarian. I took this title, she took another and we later compared. We concurred on the following:
a) the format is the same as any other romance, it seems as if the lovers are destined for eachother but a lot of drama is in the way...and of course there is a very mean person at the peak of the drama
b) the language is very strong during intimate scenes

In regard to this particular title:

I was skeptical about this book from the beginning. As I started reading it the first few chapters captured my attention. After that as I continued reading I noticed there are so many chapters that all seem the same. It's like reading the same book over and over again. However I forced myself to finish this book ( yes force because it was a book that's hard to read) and was very surprised by the ending. The sex scenes were kind of repetitive. cam front chase back. this book had a very "wicked" e ...more

So I was a little intrigued after reading Forbidden Pleasure, and wanted to see if all the books in this series are about the same thing. I realize these are only books 8 and 9 of a series that seems pretty large. But I'm thinking they are all about the same particular subject matter. My delicate sensibilities can't handle much more I don't think. haha I really don't get the whole sharing thing. I can't understand their "need" for it. It doesn't make sense to me. Even after reading their explana ...more

This was a very emotional and suspenseful story. From the beginning of the book you will feel a connection between Cam and Jaci.
Seven years have gone by when they meet up again, only to discover that the feeling they had for each other have only grown stronger. But they're both hiding secrets that they're not willing to share.
Absolutely a wonderful read. You can't go wrong with any book in the Bound Hearts Series.
What just happened?!! Maybe it's just me, but I was completely confused up to the end. I felt like parts of the story were glossed over and then a "Red Herring" was conveniently pushed into the script. Didn't make sense and was hard to follow. I generally like Leigh's fiction but this one just made absolutely no sense to me whatsoever! I don't think I need to read any further on in this series. ...more

Hated it. I accidentally grabbed the wrong book and got myself into an entire book filled with a obnoxious story line that made me want to scream and so much menage sex that I wanted to throw up. It was just gross. If you are into a threesome with you BROTHER than this book may be for you. It was NOT for me.
