Lora Leigh has a penchant for threesomes so I expected to get just that. However, this book was tiresome. Every 5 or 6 pages the heroine was pinned between two sweaty guys. The plot is thin and hard to follow.
If you're into menage-a-trois and anal sex with twins, this book is thick with it. The plot isn't even secondary, maybe tertiary. The hero is horribly, emotionally tortured, & I can't help but think a few sessions with a decent shrink could have helped him immeasureably. But of course, all of Lora Leigh's heroes are super macho and filled with unending amounts of pride (not always a good thing)and we wouldn't have any books like this if everyone used common sense now, would we? Erotic, graphic, and not the least bit subtle.
This story is a little predictable. The sex is steamy, but does get a little boring. Almost every encounter with both brothers ends the same. I love Lora Leigh but this isn't her best book. Worth the time if you're a fan, though.
Erotic contemporary romance by Lora Leigh. This one has many familiar traits of a Lora Leigh story: a young woman who has been saving herself for the one man she's loved since childhood. It also has the dominant, sexy, complex, tortured hero who will do anything to own his lady. And, of course it has a scorching hot menage. That being said, I am pleasantly surprised by this book. The heroine has a spine of her own, and definate plans to solve her own problems. The tedious part was that both hero and heroine have their secrets that they refuse to share with the other. They would fight about the secrets, accuse the other of not trusting, then rip off thier clothes, and so on. The book was a little long, but I really loved the ending. Nice, surprise resolution to the conflict, and of course a Happily Ever After ending. Sex scenes are beyond scorching. Lora Leigh isn't my favorite author, but, of all her books, this may be my favorite.
When I bought the book, I thought it would be a romantic story about a typical love triangle...NOT! More like a SEX CIRCLE (also known as orgies!). I like authors that use their imaginiation or even get a very graphic, but this book was a little too raunchy for me.
Wicked Pleasure by Lora Leigh - more sex [menage] than Wild Card but an action oriented plot. A good read!
Wicked Pleasure & Only Pleasure
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 know their backgrounds - but it is not a requirement.

Hot steamy sex, with the classic Leigh deep, emotional undertones.
I disagree with another member when she says that the heroine is pinned between two sweaty men every five or six pages. There is much more going on in this book than sex every six pages. Yes, there is a great deal of sex and that is what makes a great Lora Leigh book. :) :)
Though this is not one of my favorite Lora Leigh books, I enjoy her hard driving Alpha males and the women who can tame them.
Wow for a steaming hot piece of erotic fiction, this book was a snooze. Lots of menage sex scenes sandwiched between a drawn out mystery and revelation about the hero's tortured past. Never thought I would say this but too many sex scenes! Boring repetitive sex scenes. Lora Leigh didn't really cover any new ground in this book.
I read the sequel to this book first, the story of Chase (Only for Pleasure). It is practically identical - the hero refuses to spend the night with the heroine. Strangely there is no hint of this aversion in this book.
If this had been my first Lora Leigh book, it would have been my last.
Would have liked a little more story line, was ok but I have to say I liked her seal series better. Definately erotic tho,menege's every few pages, a litle shocked the first time I came accross them didn't get the impression of the story by reading the back of the book.
Number 9 in the series. Book was good, but not as great as some others from this series. The Heroine, Jaci, is in love with one twin but both want her. Of course, as usual in these books they share women. Jaci spends half the book mad as hell at both brothers for "making" her be involved with both. The Hero is a bit of a bully in this one and is really hard headed when it comes to figuring out that he needs her more than he needs to share. But it is a good book. It gets better as it goes along. Once you figure out WHY the brothers are the way they are you start to sympothize with them and like them a lot more than you do in the beginning. All in all I would NOT skip this book. I am convinced that Lora Leigh can NOT write a bad book. This one is deffinately worth the read!!!
This book has some interesting parts but very slow. For the most part the leading lady is sandwiched between two guys. If you are a person that enjoys the storyline and/or back story of a book don't read. If you are into just steamy sex scene definitely check this out.
Better than I expected and the twist in the story kept me hanging until the very end. The sex scenes were hot although at times you wanted to smack the lead characters along side the head. Talk about bringing your dirty laundry to bed LOL.
Normally, I really enjoy Lora Leigh's writing style. I have all of the Ops books. I also love menage stories. But this book disappointed me on several levels - from the flat heroine character, to the neediness of the hero (who is supposed to be an alpha) to the major issue I had with the books ending.
WARNING: Major Spoiler Alert!!!!!
What upset me most about this book though was the fact that after all the set up about the hero needing to share his woman with his twin, after the whole struggle the heroine has with being with two men, the menage doesn't stay. She only ends up with ONE of the brothers - at the very end.
A little on the angsty side and in need of a strong editor. Lora Leigh sets up Jaci with hunky alpha twins. The only way she can get to Cam is if she also takes on Chase, at the same time. The plot was thin and the characters were in mental loops (if I reveal this secret to him/her it will destroy me) that never got them anywhere and bored me.
I was rather disappointed in this book. The lead female character was so annoying, I just wanted to smack her. The storyline was somewhat confusing too. I'm sticking with LL's Breed series ~ now those stories rock!!!!!
Single story, good writing, sex scenes were very well written. Too much emphasis and time was placed on the backstory of the "dark, brooding" twin and too many details were given too early to be surprised at the why of his dark brooding self. If you're looking for a good, longer read on M-F-M scenarios, this is a decent one. Seems to be part of a larger story arc revolving around a secret Club.
