After a final bad mission, Summer has left her job and heading back home, where she’s only known as a Southern socialite. Unfortunately, the two men she left with her former life are determined she’s in danger and are following her home. As with all of this author’s books, there was plenty of steam within the pages of this book. There’s also plenty of story to keep you reading. I love all of her series’ and this one was no exception. I highly recommend if you like this genre. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Intense Pleasure was fanfabulous! The continuation of the series didn't disappoint. Falcon, Raeg and Summer were a perfect trinity. Filled with sensuality, erotica, and suspense, it had my attention all the way through. It's a must read. Thanx, Lora. You did it again.

I liked the story as well as the characters and the sex was steamy. The drama was a bit over the top for me. However, that will not keep me from continuing to read this amazing series. I liked it.

3.75 stars--INTENSE PLEASURE is the fourteenth installment in Lora Leigh’s contemporary adult BOUND HEART erotic, romantic ménage, suspense series. This is former CIA agents Summer Calhoun, Estaban ‘Falcon’ Falcone, and John Raeg’s story line. INTENSE PLEASURE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information is revealed where necessary. Falcon, Raeg and Summer were first introduced to the reader in the previous installment-SECRET PLEASURE-Summer is Alyssa’s best friend. NOTE: INTENSE PLEASURE is a M/F/M storyline with graphic sexual situations and language. Told from three third person perspectives (Summer, Falcon, Raeg) INTENSE PLEASURE is a friends to lovers story line that focuses on the struggling professional and personal relationship between former CIA operatives and one-time partners Summer Cahoun, and half-brothers Falcon Falcone and John Raeg. Summer was tired; the threat of death always a step behind and our heroine is willing to walk away from the men that she loved to face a quiet future at home, and alone. But an old enemy has come out of hiding, and Summer and her family have been targeted in a game of revenge. Enter Falcon and Raeg, the two men who are willing to walk way from the woman they love in order to protect their hearts and her soul. What ensues is the struggle to remain professional in the face of danger; and the battle between family and the path your heart has chosen. The professional relationship between Summer, Falcon and Raeg has already been established prior to the story line premise. It is Summer’s decision to walk away that forces half-brothers Falcon and Raeg to go after the woman that calls to their heart-a woman they know they do not deserve. Raeg’s backstory is heartbreaking, and his love for Summer struggles with demons from his past. Falcon is a man determined to hold onto the woman they love for as long as possible even if is means walking away when their latest assignment is done. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. There is plenty of palpable sexual energy between the leading characters, and some heartbreaking moments as Summer comes to terms with losing the men that she loves. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including all of Summer, Falcon, and Raeg’s extended families-all members or former members of the CIA, Special Ops or various covert government agencies. INTENSE PLEASURE is a seductive story of three people who have fallen in love but refuse to admit their deepest desires. The premise is moving and stirring ; the romance is passionate, intimate and captivating; the characters are colorful and inspiring. INTENSE PLEASURE is a sexy and engaging tale from the pen of Lora Leigh.

intense pleasure is the fifteenth installment in lora leigh's erotic romance series, bound hearts. i've read a couple of the previous installments and this follows a similar pattern to those. if you are familiar with the series, you know that these books are unconventional romances in that there is generally a threesome of the m/f/m variety. i don't mind the threesome idea at all, and actually i prefer the storyline in intense pleasure where both guys and the woman are fully committed to one another, and of being in this relationship than the ones where it's only a temporary thing. summer, falcon, and raeg have known each other for years. they've wanted each other for years--note that falcon and raeg actually have no interest in each other sexually, they are half-brothers, whose parents have their own unconventional relationship. a lot of the baggage the guys carry is due to their parents, their father in particular. but there are some key plot points that would be spoiled if i talked about this any further, so all i'll say is that these issues need to be resolved before the three of them can move forward in their relationship. the ease with which everyone kind of accepts the odd relationship is a bit unbelievable. but it works in the bound hearts world, because every novel in the series expands the world further, and treats the unconventional coupling as something normal. i mean, yeah okay, occasionally someone says something, but it's shut down so quickly that you just kind of accept the situation for what it is. the brothers thing also weirds me out, but no one else seems to have a problem with it in the book, so eventually i just rolled with it. this is a sexy, emotional read, the leads are all likable, though i have to admit i preferred falcon more than raeg. also, i'm still not clear on how raeg's name is supposed to be pronounced, is it "rag" or "rayg" or "reeg" or "rage"? i ended up going with "rayg" in my head, but now that i'm thinking this through it maybe was supposed to be "rage"? oh well. i don't think knowing how to say his name would have made me like him more. also summer does this thing at the end of the novel where she is too proud to point something really obvious out because the guys should just know it, and that whole thing felt so stupid to me. like why would you cut your nose to spite your face stupid. she was willing to walk away and let them walk away because she refused to point out something they were missing. why? the author kept trying to have her explain this, but because it is nonsensical the explanations never made any sense. i did enjoy reading this. i just also think i've reached a point where i don't need any more books in this series. it doesn't feel like we are covering new ground. and after fifteen books, is that really that surprising? **intense pleasure will publish on january 3, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/st. martin's press in exchange for my honest review.

Sexy, scintillating, and secretive, Intense Pleasure is the story of hidden desires and illicit romance. When danger threatens a woman, the two men who crave her, cannot live without her, will stop at nothing to protect her life… and satisfy every burning desire she has. They must stay bound together to be stronger than what hunts her, and let passion consume them… TOO HOT TO HANDLE 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.

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. Review: This has always been one of my favorite series and I loved this addition. This like the others in the series centers around three people, who come together in a menage relationship. In this story we have Summer, Falcone and Raeg who have a tempestuous relationship. Though when Summer is under the threat of an assassin, the brothers come to protect Summer. This the 14th book in the series and it is not necessary to catch-up read to enjoy this book. I loved the chemistry between these three, the dynamic between Summer and Falcone is so different then the one between her and Raeg that it makes the threesome more interesting. That chemistry is palpable and very sexy to read. I really liked the interactions between between the guys and Summer's father, they were tense and at times fun to read, but exactly what a over-protective father might do and say. I liked that when you think the danger is over there is more to the story and wraps up everything very satisfyingly. I hope there are more stories to come in this series. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.*

This was the first book I've read by this author. I'm always looking for a good menage, so I gave this one a try. I loved that Raeg, Falcon and Summer were all such strong characters. They all were highly trained people that can hold their own in a fight, but with their hearts, that's another matter. Throughout the book we find Raeg really having a hard time with his feelings for Summer. He has always pushed her away because it's just easier for him to deal with her that way. When the three of them are in close proximity and sparks fly, Raeg and Falcon give into their desire to be with Summer. They all know that in the end they will have to walk away, but that doesn't stop them from giving into the desire. The story is exciting and hot and sexy. I did have some trouble with keeping all of the names and who was who straight, so I had to concentrate as I was reading with who the players all were. It's possible if I would have read the rest of the series, maybe that wouldn't as been as challenging. The book was very good though and I loved Falcon, Raeg and Summer. They had a great story.

Summer is a former CIA agent and now has a Russian mobster after her. She returns home to her family with two brothers as bodyguards. Falcon and Raeg are half brothers who share their lovers. Falcon is former CIA but owns his own security business. Raeg is the chief of staff for a politician. They don't want to take Summer as a lover because their father killed Raeg's last lover, who was an agent trying to find out where his parents were hiding. But Summer is hard to resist so they take her but intend to leave aftrer the danger is gone. Excellent story. A little confusing at some parts but still a smoking hot story. The ending totally shocked me. Be prepared for very sexy sex scenes. *I VOLUNTARILY REVIEWED THIS BOOK*

Sexy and suspenseful M/F/M read which is part of Lora's Bound Heart series. Raeg and Falcon are intensely and passionately in love with Summer but their past is keeping them from...well...keeping her. Summer's past has come back to haunt her and with it a threat to her and her family. There is a lot of passion and angst and struggle for what will make everyone happy in this book that made the pages fly and made it a quick read. You do not need to read the rest of the series but since I have enjoyed this series I continue to recommend each book. **Received an ARC copy from the publisher via NetGalley**

Sinfully sexy M/F/M read that has an intense and complex storyline. Two brothers lusting after the same woman. A woman who has serious trouble trailing her. How much are these men willing to sacrifice to have her? This is part of the Bound Hearts series and while you don't have to have read the prior books to follow the story, I think it would have been helpful for me to connect more with these characters. Overall though, the story is good, the sexy times are HOT, and it's a book I would recommend to anyone who enjoys menage romance.

This book is riddled with secrets, love, and deception. I enjoyed Intense Pleasure from the first words on the first page. I found Falcon, Summer and Raeg well adjusted for each other. Raeg has no clue what it means to truly be part of a family, Summer doesn't pull any punches initiating him into the fold as Falcone looks on. Lora Leigh has an incredible imagination and story telling ability. This is more than a romance book, more that a continuation in the Bound Hearts Series... Just MORE.

Don't let the title of this book fool you. This story was so much more than the title implies. This is by far the best ménage story I have read to date. Lora Leigh provided the perfect blend of romance and suspense. Usually I find the suspense is the main focus and not the romance in these types of stories but I never felt that one or the other overtook this one. I also find it hard to really enjoy a ménage story because it's not easy to blend three lives. Lets face it, most ménage books are just about sex and not much of a story. Not from this author. She can weave a suspense story like no other while also making the love of three people believable. This book had me at the edge of my seat and I Loved it! ARC provided by NetGalley.

At first, I really didn't like this new book. I couldn't stand Tiffany or Sebastien. I only kept reading because....Lexi Blake. I'm so glad I kept reading. I laughed, I teared up, and I couldn't turn pages fast enough. Of course, it ended all to soon. I give 4 stars because the first 1/4 was really, really hard to get through and I did loathe the main characters. I also felt the ending was rushed. Everything in between, Lexi Blake perfection.
