Recommends it for: Fans of the series, fans of erotic romance
Another scorcher in the 'Nauti' series--this one's sure to set off the smoke alarms! Virginal Janey Mackay and uber-alpha Special Forces Major Alex Jansen are one smokin' hot couple, and it doesn't take them long to get down to business. Of course, Alex has had his eye on Janey since she was seventeen, but he was 31, so anything happening between them was out of the question. But she's a 23 year old woman now, and yeah, he's an older man of 37, but she's no longer jail-bait, and this 'thing' bet ...more

Get out your fire extinguisher! "Nauti Intentions" by Lora Leigh will leave you in a sweat. Her stories feature hard-core Alphas who don't let anything stand in the way of 'taking care' of their women. They aren't mean, they aren't cruel...but they also leave no doubts about who runs the show.

Janey is trying to settle into life back in her hometown and get to know her big brother Natches. She's also trying to recover from the horrible incident that left her nearly dead, her wicked father and dem

Recommended to jenjn79 by: continuation of a series
I think I agree with a lot of other reviewers that this is probably the best in the series so far. I liked the story overall...the romance, the characters, the story, etc. All in all, a very engaging story.

Series note:
Probably best to rest this series in order.

Janey's Mackay's life has been hell. Growing up with an evil, abusive father, she saw the worst of life. Now, after a big showdown, she's finally free of her father's evil influence and ready to move on with her life. She decides t

This book was sexy hot! It burned my finger-tips! Alex and Janey definitely had some steam between them. They had quite the sex life. However, it wasn't just all sex in this book (though at times it seemed like it). There was a pretty decent plot to this one as well. I felt in the first book, Nauti Boy, that the suspense, was contrived and didn't fit with the story. This one didn't feel that way. It was a much better story.

At first I thought the villian was pretty easy to figure out but I was w

Recommends it for: NOBODY
I wanted to like this book as I have all the others in the series, but this book stunk. I ended up skimming a majority of the book. First of all I have no problem with a big age difference. I believe true love finds you no matter what your age. Janey is 23 and Alex is 38. However the way Alex and her ENTIRE FAMILY treats her AND the way she herself acts, you would think she was 17. Janey is immature, has no self esteem and thinks of every male in her family as a "protector". Even still calling h ...more

For the most part, I enjoyed this erotic-romantic suspense that is a continuation in the "Nauti series" (#4). It includes the characters from the earlier books and their wives, but in minor rolls--except for Natches. He plays a fairly large roll in this one and, unfortunately, his character got on my nerves. He was constantly arguing with his sister over her life and the restaurant. Constantly.

The two main h/h (Alex and Janey) were neat to follow. They had the hots for each other for 6 years, bu

Lora Leigh's alpha males are definately my guilty pleasure!

Now this is my favourite of the series. As always i love when we get to the sister story and Janey is amazing. She is so strong and independent. But has always lived with her fathers issues and what people have perceived her to be because of his actions. Now, Major Alex Jansen, ooohhhhh i love him. He is the towns hero, in all areas. Everyone loves him. After Alex helped to save Janey, then disappeared back to war, he is back, and tries

Nauti Intentions started out good, but ended up falling flat for me. I felt that Alex and Janey were a bit underdeveloped. I thought their attraction to each other was genuine, but it didn't go past lust for me. Janey was looking for love because she had to hide any emotions she felt from her father or he would use it against her. Alex was a hard man who didn't believe in love. Honestly, I felt that Janey was willing to settle and deserved better. Alex wasn't a bad man by any means, but
Holy smoking smexxy red hot spontaneous combusting Kindle melting... Wow! Best book yet in the series. I started it at 10pm and finished it this morning. Oops! not much sleep! It was that good.

There are enough reviews on here to get the gist of the story. Leigh got the chemistry down on this pair. Alex and Janie burn up the pages during this erotic romantic thriller. Look forward to lots of sex. Graphic. A variety of variations, in different places, including up against the wall.

This book is amazing.. The lead female is beautifully damaged. By that I mean she is damaged and doesn't complain about it. All the stuff she endured has made her stronger. The lead male is delicious. So strong and dominating and if you enjoy dirty talk this will become an all time favorite. All their imperfections are perfect. Loved the plot and all the side characters. ...more

I think this is the best "Nauti" book yet. I really like Alex. He is a hard-boiled soldier but with a tender heart when it comes to his friends and Janey (his friends little sister). Alex is 14 years older than Janey but she's wanted him since she was 17 and believe me the feeling was mutual except he felt like a pervert because of the age difference. But now that she's 23, all bets are off. The scorching hot sex scenes actually made me blush. WOW.

This one has a great storyline as well as the st
This book was much better than Nauti Boy(Nauti, #1)! Esp no sharing women with others. (The reason of Rowdy and his cousins' sharing women was beyond me)

As I reread some of Lora Leigh's three series so far, heroes in Nauti series were also all alpha males, but they were ruder and more stubborn than heroes in Elite Ops series and Tempting SEALs series.

I still liked this book, but something bothered me: was it really because Alex was 14 years older than Janey, his viewpoint toward love was so dif

This book sucked. The general plotline was okay and the mystery had promise but overall the book was just bad. Mainly it was the sex scenes( which were the literary equivalent of bad pizza boy delivery porn) but it was also the way the male characters treated the female protagonist. She was a 24 year-old woman and they treated her like she was 12. The entire male cast was full of sexist pigs set on controlling and dominating the main character like she was a toy. The male protagonist made fun of ...more

these are defintely getting better with each book. as i've said before, 'this was my favorite of the series'. i've still got one left and i think it's rogue and zeke.

i've always liked alex this whole series and was anxious to see who he would get paired up with. i loved janey. i think her relationship with natches was almost as important to me as her relationship with alex.

Read out of order, but don't think this would have made a differnce. Didn't really care for Alex very much. It was disturbing that a man in his late 30's was lusting after a 23 year old woman for 6 or 7 years. Kind of creepy. He seemed to use Janey, a woman with very little experience with men as a toy and he really seemed to manhandle her. Nope, didn't care for this. ...more

Very good continuation of the Nauti series. Janey is Natches younger sister. He is very protective. So when one of his team shows more than just casual interest, he is very upset. But Alex has been wanting Janey since she was 17 years old - now she is 23 years old and a woman with her own mind.

"You own me". Three little words no woman should want to hear or say! This is the worst one yet for more reasons than I can list. The names change, barely, but the (stupid) plot remains the same.

Well, who knew that Natches had a baby sister? And that Alex Jansen has had his eye on her for a long time? I love the unrequited elements of this book. Poor Janey loves Alex, who is busy trying to avoid her until the time comes when he can't and that's when the story takes off. It's not a Nauti series book unless someone is in danger and well, Somerset seems like it is having issues with it's criminal element because this town is dangerous! Pick up this story and find out how Alex, Janey, the M ...more

So far this is my favorite book in the series! This series is an erotic romance with suspense. I love Janey and I love Alex! Janey's family is a bit too alpha and over the top, but these two were my favorite couple. Their chemistry is super hot and their banter with each other was great and both of them just fit together. This is an older man and younger woman storyline but I enjoy reading those so it doesn't bother me at all. Again, you should read this series in order so everyone makes sense t ...more

Janey has loved Alex since she was seventeen but he is 14 years older than her. After he helps save her from her abusive father and aunt, most of the family and Alex treat her with kid gloves. The hometown people think she helped her father instead of being a victim. Someone has started sending threatening notes. Alex moves in to protect her. But who will protect him. Read and see how it turns out.

Nauti Intentions

In this book Natches sister Jane's life is in danger. All because of her father and aunt's deviant lifestyle. Who is stalking her and why is the synopsis of the story. Alex has been watching over her for awhile and is upset that she didn't tell him. Now he is her personal bodyguard. But will it be enough to keep her safe? Can a man fourteen years older than her be her only one for love?

I could read this series again in a few years. That good!

Janey and Alex go through hell with the death of her father and the lingering terror that threaten their community. Janey is smarter than anyone gives her credit for - including herself. That is why her extended family loves her. She just can't seem to see it for herself.

Hey - what happened to Fat Cat?
