4 Stars


Her name is Summer, as beautiful and occasionally fierce as her name suggests. Her past has just come back to haunt her, and suddenly she’s not sure who she can trust. Her longtime confidantes Falcone and Raeg seem to have Summer’s best interests at heart. . .but it’s clear that their desire for her still burns between them. Can they find a way to keep Summer safe
or will a bitter rivalry stand in their way?

Falcone and Raeg need to work together, now more than ever, if they intend to protect Summer from an old enemy who knows her dangerous secret. When Summer’s identity as a sweet, Southern socialite gets out, the two men must find a way to draw out the ruthless assassin on her trail. . .and keep their illicit romance with her under wraps. But some passions are so intense they can’t remain hidden. What are Falcone and Raeg willing to risk for the woman they both crave like no other, in Intense Pleasure, the next Bound Hearts novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh.

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 their own - a reason for why they can can't ever be with Summer forever-happily-ever-after....

Lots of very suspensy and very erotic moments until Summer can even think about settling down with one, or even both of her men!

What will happen to Summer and her two guys?


I've read and loved many or Lora's books. Especially those erotic suspense ones!
And I also read pretty much all of those 15 Bound Hearts books, but I was still extremely and hopelessly confused and lost in the beginning of this book. The prologue and the first chapter is just talk about past people and actions and I only understood 25% of everything. So many full pages of words and almost nothing made sense.☺ For me at least. Maybe you'll understand what's what!
It got a bit better once I knew who was who and why we were where we were!☺☺
And it got a LOT better once the sexiness began! PHEW!

We have sooo many mega erotic moments and lots of suspensy moments and frustrating and sad and funny and adorable moments!
I really enjoyed reading this story! It was a bit too wordy here and there, but I really enjoyed the whole big southern family atmosphere! All those siblings and family members - all of whom have some agent or military background. Adorable!

INTENSE PLEASURE was an extremely erotic & very suspensy m/f/m romance!!!! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own copy of this sexiness!

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 a series that I hadn't read earlier parts of - but that is probably just my brain!

Once I got my head around who was who and what was what, I really got into the story.

It is a sexy, erotic, suspenseful story, full of twists and turns.  It was a case of who was who, could you trust them, and what would happen with our confusing and loving trio.

There were some things that popped up near the end that had me confused again - but this may also have just been me.

I loved the vulnerability of the characters in their personal lives when they are such badasses professionally. And I adored the southern family dynamic that shines right on through the story.


Stalking Lora:

Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a teenage son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora’s life is filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.
