I picked up this book because the premise was SO different than what is usual in romance books, I wondered how the situation could come about, and how the author is going to work it out. Well, the story did make me want to read the other books in the series. As for this story, I was dissatisfied with the ending; Dari was looking for an explanation, and Megan just seemed to want it to be over and done with; she wasn't the most sympathetic female lead. The rest of the story- and Linc- were riveting, but Dari/Megan/Jason were just too dyfunctional (and IMO it was Jason's fault!) To me, the ending was very 'there are no real answers so let's just move along, there's nothing to see here.'

Former Marine Megan McGowan understands being away from home on deployment. Now a private security expert, Megan misses her boyfriend and firm's partner, Marine Darius Folsom as he is overseas when his reserve unit was mobilized and deployed Megan and another partner Dari's best friend Jason Savage work on a kidnapping case together. Their proximity heats up their attraction and soon the pair makes love together several times. When Dari returns home early, Megan must choose between her two lovers; that is if her returning marine allows her a choice. First the trio along with their other partners Lazarus and Lincoln Williams work to rescue a kidnapped Finley. The first Pleasure Seekers romantic suspense is a taut thriller that moves out on two subplots: the personal triangle and the abduction. The romantic segue is deftly developed as Tori Carington puts a powerful spotlight on the human cost of deployments as Dari feels betrayed by his beloved and his BFF while he was in theater. The kidnapping provides tension and twists including a brilliant spin that fans will relish while waiting for the Wicked Pleasures of Linc's tale. Harriet Klausner

We all know when we are away frome the one we love, temptations are something that is always front and center. That as Megan McGowan problem. Her man Darius "Dari" Folsom was away on military deploymen. Megan was home alone with bad boy Jason Savage, who was Dari's best friend and both their business partner in a new security firm. Can Megan resist Jason? Tori Carington is well known for her sizzling stories and this one does not disappoint. The best part is that "Reckless Pleasures" is the first in The Pleasure Seekers series. Ms. Carrington is going to make this our hottest summer ever, since we will get a new story each month, one in June, July and August. What more could we ask for?

I spent the first part of the book trying to like the the heroine and trying to figure out if the boyfriend or the best friend is supposed to be the hero. Midway through i'm thinking this can NOT be where they are headed w/ this story, and by the end I was left w/ a heroine I hated, a hero I was angry and sad for, and left w/ a strange mix of pity and disgust for the best friend. The conversation between the hero and his dad that I guess was supposed to provide a moment of clarity for the hero, was just bizarre and disturbing. I'm guessing the only people who will enjoy this book are people that have cheated on their partner. I started reading romance 16 years ago when I was 12 (shhh don't tell my mom!) and have read A LOT of books in that time. This has to be the worst one i've ever read!
