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

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.

My Take
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 has

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

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

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

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
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

What a great book as always Lora Leigh delivered it page has been in love with Abram since she was a teenager. Her brother didn't want to see this and he was against it but in the end he came around this book hit everything low suspicion and as always it caught me right in the heart can't wait to read more in this series.
