Summer has finally quit her job as an agent.
After she had to kill a friend/colleague who betrayed everyone, she left to go back home to Georgia to be with her huge southern family. To maybe even start a family of her own.

But now her two ex-colleagues and dream men - halfbrothers Falcon and Raeg - found her. They're staying with her and her family to protect them from a russian sociopath-warlord who wants revenge!

But he's not the only one they're all afraid of. Raeg & Falcon have some secrets of

Mindy Lou's Book Review
Don't let the title of this book fool you. This story was so much more than the title implies. This is by far the best ménage story I have read to date. Lora Leigh provided the perfect blend of romance and suspense. Usually I find the suspense is the main focus and not the romance in these types of stories but I never felt that one or the other overtook this one. I also find it hard to really enjoy a ménage story because it's not easy to blend three lives. Lets face it, most ménage books are jus ...more

Welcome back, Ms. Leigh, oh how I have missed your delicious ménage with strong women and stubborn men. I loved this book. This book brings back fond memories of the first few books in this Bound Hearts series. This is the kind of book which pulled me into the erotic world of threesomes. Ms. Leigh knocks this one out of the park with the sexual tension, pulling of heart strings and erotic burning up sheets.

The characters in this book are awesome. I have liked Summer as she dips in and out of oth

Intense Pleasure is the first book I've read by author Lora Leigh. To be honest, I don't think it lived up to the hype. Don't get me wrong, this book is HOT and if you like menage romance then you might want to pick this one up, but even though I was under the impression that this could read as a standalone, I'm not sure that's accurate. I feel like going into this story, I should've known more up front. Because of this, I didn't connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. The plo ...more

Let’s just put this on the top of my re-read shelf…

I love this author’s books! From shifters to ménage, Lora Leigh knows how to write a compelling, emotional, sizzling read and the Bound Hearts series is a testament to all those good things. In the latest instalment, Summer, Falcone and Raeg are at odds even as they love each other fiercely…

The life of espionage means secrets, lies and intrigue are par for the course. What happens though when you can’t take

Fourteenth in the Bound Hearts erotica romance series and usually revolving around a sex club near Washington D.C. This story is set in Clifton, Georgia. The threesome focus is on Summer Calhoun, Falcon, and Raeg.

My Take
It's one long whine after another in this tale of three prideful drama queens. The whole story is whining and whining and whining and… Summer runs away rather than deal. Raeg has a one-track mind about his lover's murder with nothing getting through to him. Nobody actually stop

Good read. Although at one point I almost gave up.

I didn’t like one main character. Being an asshole for half the book with no explanation or justification means he was a villain.

So I read the epilogue and understood why. So went back reading. But it was the same plot over and over... guys loved her. She loved them. They couldn’t have a Long term relationship... for few hundred pages...

So I read it. Liked some parts. Hated others.

FINAL DECISION: A menage story, but more than that.  This is a great suspense story with some hot sexy moments with two brothers and their fellow agent thrown in.

THE STORY: After years of working as an agent, Summer has had enough.  But when her identity is revealed and an enemy intends to eliminate her, two men who worked closely with her for years come to help her.  Falcon and Raeg are half-brothers who share their work and their women.  Now they want to protect Summer and the

A sizzling story filled with emotional moments, hot interludes, and tests of both trust and love.

What Summer "Belle" Calhoun wants is very different from what she can have. Her partner Falcon and his brother, Raeg, are the same way and what is at stake is so much more than desire and wants.

She wants out of the business and Falcon knows this. She's had to kill her best friend, whom she didn't know hated her. She loves two men and can't have either because they will not take her unless they both

I have read plenty of Lora Leigh books in the past and have really enjoyed them.

I am not going to lie, I was thorougly confuzzled for about the first 30% of Intense Pleasure. Sure, it was intense, and there was plenty of pleasuring going on, but it took me that long to really get my head around the dynamic of our trio - Summer, Falcon and Raeg.

And it may be just me, but I felt like I was coming in halfway through the story, or that this was part of

This book gave me some major PTSD! I’ve enjoyed books like this in the past so that wasn’t what got me so… eww. It was the fact that the men WERE BROTHERS and banging the same girl TOGETHER. The main woman, Summer, is a former CIA agent, but she was so soft and weak, I don’t know how she would have made a great anything. Her family was delusional and did not depict what a real southern family was all about. The main men, Falcon and Raeg, were majorly turned on seeing each other pleasing Summer a ...more

This is a sexy read and features M/F/M relationship/sex.

A CIA agent wants out but someone from her past is after her. Luckily for her 2 sexy men are happy be there to protect her, if she needs there help!

The characthers are good but I do feel I would have connected more if I'd read a couple of the previous books.

This book is a good read and the sex scenes are extremely hot and show Intense Pleasure!

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

This was a long, drawn out story. I haven't read books in the series in order, but you don't really need to with this book. Despite the complexity of the story, you never really felt that you didn't know what was going on.

I am a huge Lora Leigh fan and was so excited to get my hands on this one. I have not read all of the books in the Bound Hearts series but that did not take away from this one at all. It can definitely be read as a standalone. That being said, Lora Leigh is a fantastic author and I strongly suggest reading all her other books. I know for me personally I will be downloading the ones I haven't had the chance to read. It has been a while since I have had the pleasure of reading Ms. Leigh's work and ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I fell in love with this series back before it morphed into Bound Hearts. The men and women we read about all have complex natures and none more than Summer.

Summer is tired of living the life of an agent and of being nothing more than an irritant to Raeg and a toy to Falcon. Neither of the men seem to want her enough to bring her to their bed, either individually or together, no do they seem to want to let her out of their

This is one sizzling hot read. If you like a lot of tension, and a lot of super hot tension relievers, then this is for you!

It is part of a series, and I do think that it makes a lot more sense if you have the background to this trio's work and the tension between them. The situation is explained, but obviously not all the details. I think that knowing how tough Summer has been would make the difference when she is home

You know, I've read all but two of the books in this series and those were two of the very early books that are out of print. This is after all one of my favorite menage series, but these last two books just haven't sat right with me. Intense Pleasure had all of the key elements I've come to expect from Leigh's writing, but the suspense was so lacking and the heroine was just...blah. I didn't like her and I didn't like the heroes either for that matter. And for three people who have spent their ...more

This was a good read. This story gets your attention right away and keeps it throughout the entire story. The sexual chemistry between these three, as well as the connection they all have, makes the sex scenes quite steamy. Danger brings them all back together, where a BDSM relationship ensues. They have all desired one another for quite a long time and now is finally the right time. There are other secrets going on as well as the danger. They have to jump over all of the obstacles in their live ...more

This review is based on the ARC received from the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

It was obvious that this was part of a series. If I was able to read the first 14 then I would have better understood the decisions of the characters. It didn't take long to be involved in THIS part of the series though. The author is very consistent in her excellent sultry menage. She doesn't disappoint. There is even quite a bit of action happening in the background of

Sinfully sexy M/F/M read that has an intense and complex storyline. Two brothers lusting after the same woman. A woman who has serious trouble trailing her. How much are these men willing to sacrifice to have her? This is part of the Bound Hearts series and while you don't have to have read the prior books to follow the story, I think it would have been helpful for me to connect more with these characters. Overall though, the story is good, the sexy times are HOT, and it's a book I would recomme ...more

Lora Leigh represents book heaven for me. She was my introduction into erotic romance many years ago. The first time I read one of her books, I was flushed and my heart was hammering in my chest. All this time later, nothing has changed.

One thing I can always count on in a, Lora Leigh book is a complex plot line. Sure there's tons of steamy lovin', but there's a solid story filled with details.

An outstanding addition to this series! I have been a big fan of Lora Leigh since the beginning of her Breed series, which has lead me to reading all the rest of her series and books. This particular series, Bound Hearts, is different from many of her novels because all of the 'couples' are trios. In that they are all about two men and one woman finding happiness in a committed three-way relationship. The reality of this is probably few and far between but it really works in these books.
