Jaci Wright has been running from the Falladay twins, Chase and Cam, for seven years now. Fears of the desires they arouse in her, and the knowledge of the relationship they wanted with her, spurred her to run, to find a life that kept her traveling the globe and out of their reach…

But now life has come full circle. A new job has placed Jaci in the Sinclair mansion with Chase and Cam. And they’re tired of waiting. It’s hard enough to face accepting a relationship with two men rather than just one, but gossip and the tattered tales of juicy secrets fill the society she now moves within. Can she face the world knowing she’s a lover to both men, or will her hesitancy and her fears destroy her chance of happiness forever?


Review:  Wicked Pleasure was worth every minute of sleep I missed because I wouldn’t put it down. I must admit that I was hooked right from the start. Lora Leigh has written numerous books and I have read a quite a few of them. The last one I read left me disappointed, so I am happy this one grabbed me. I am pretty sure that even the best of us can’t please everyone all the time, so I would never let that keep me from reading another. Ménage is not for everyone but just reading the blurb for this makes it pretty clear that the book is a ménage so no one should be surprised. It is definitely written well here.

Jaci Wright seemed to be someone I would want to know better and I just kept reading to find out more about her. The book starts out with a small back story of Jaci as a young teen knowing that she wants Cam Fallady and that he is the only man for her. The only problem is he is eighteen, a bad boy and off limits. She loves him with her whole heart and soul, the way only a teenager can. When the book really gets going with them as adults, her feelings for Cam are just as strong, she still wants him and only him. She comes to the realization that Cam has certain sexual needs, he has a twin named Chase and they come as a pair. Jaci has to decide if she can handle everything that Cam is and what a relationship with him requires.

Cam’s angst and his tenacious grip on a dream of the future with Jaci in it just tore at my heart. I could see how much Cam really loved Jaci in his heart but couldn’t actually have an actual relationship with her. Cam is so conflicted and is battling with such shame, anger and unresolved pain he can’t possibly sustain any kind of healthy long lasting bond with anyone. I do love how his soul knows that his salvation is Jaci and if he can just figure out how to navigate the obstacle course of a relationship and recovery he will attain the happiness he seeks.

I enjoyed the interaction with the secondary characters very much and really appreciated the twists and turns the plot took. I also liked getting a glimpse of some people I hope to see more of in the future. The attraction between Jaci and Cam was undeniably hot; adding Chase to the mix just makes it burst into flames. Wicked Pleasure is sure to entertain and make you want more. As long as Lora Leigh keeps writing books like this, I will be reading into the wee hours of the morning and then having very hot dreams for a very long time.

    I just think that the book will be a really great read. I love it when the men know that they are meant for a woman and she tries to out run them. Makes it more interesting to me.

    Great review! Sounds exactly like something I would enjoy reading. Who wouldn’t enjoy two men wearing her down. LOL

  3. Chris Bails says:

    I think the menage part, which I love, intrigues me. I also like the 2nd chance story. The books looks great and would love to win and read. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Great review! I love how you focus in on the conflict and just enough backstory that peaks my interest. Of course, it’s a HEA story but the journey and angst is the best part so that HEA was totally worth it!

    Your lovely rose drew me to read the review. Your statement that is was worth losing sleep made me laugh. It’s a great measure of a book’s worthiness.

    The authors name if it’s one of my favorites, that’s a certain read for me. Otherwise if the story line sounds good.
