Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Chase Falladay returns to initiate Kia Stanton into the Club, where ménage à trois is the rule, in Leigh's sensual newest book. When Kia's husband, Drew, and his friend attempt to rape her, Kia discovers that Drew is part of the secret swingers club whose members are many of Washington's elite. Chase persuades Kia to say publicly that the Club does not exist, in exchange for protecting her from Drew. Kia agrees to stay silent, but withdraws from her usual social life for two years until she meets Chase at a party and leaves with him and his third, Khalid, knowing she is agreeing to a club ritual: a steamy threesome. While the immediate goal is uninhibited pleasure, Chase and Kia find themselves falling in love. Unfortunately, there is a jealous psychopath determined to hurt Chase, and killing Kia seems the best way to do it. Kia is a superior heroine: strong, sexy and vulnerable. The stalker's identity comes as a surprise that will doubtless please long-term fans of the series. New readers will take a little while to understand the nuances of Club rules and may find the explicit kink a titillating surprise in a usually demure genre. They would be better served picking up at the start of the series. (Jan.)

Review

Praise for Only Pleasure:
"A titillating surprise" --Publisher's Weekly
 
"Romance readers who love a dominant, tortured, panty-ripping hero will adore Chase Falladay and won’t be able to help being a little jealous of the lucky Kia, regardless of how likable she is. Only Pleasure is a wild ride into eroticism balanced with an equal measure of pure romance.  You won’t put it down until you’ve reached the very end!" --Wild on Books
 
"A sizzling hot love story guaranteed to heat up the cold winter nights." --Fresh Fiction
 
Praise for Wicked Pleasure:
"Wicked, intense, suspenseful." --Romance Junkies
 
"[S]ensual, exciting and totally erotic." --Fresh Fiction
 
"Intense and blazing hot." --RRTErotic
 
Praise for Forbidden Pleasure:
"Highly intense, poignantly emotional, and wonderfully delicious...a truly decadent read."--Romance

Exciting story line...suspenseful...great surprise ending.
Vallarta
If you're looking for a book that reads like a porn film with a fair amount of sex and an extremely thin plot, this is your novel.

I've read all of Lora Leigh's book ... and I notice how far she's come in her writing.

I've been a big fan of Lora Leigh's books but this is not one of her best. The sex is HOT but the plot needs work. He says she's a princess but treats her like a whore. Catches her as she's leaving places and then leaves right after the sex. Doesn't invite her to any events with his friends & his friends notice and wonder about it. I would've told him to shove it no matter how hot the sex was. Very disappointed.

Kia Stanton discovers the reality of a sordid club when her husband brings a member home with him and tries to persuade Kia to have ..."relations"... with this man by using force and alcohol. This left Kia lost and hysterically searching for resolution...and leads her to tell her friend of the activities of this club. Her best friend betrays Kia and begins to gossip about what Kia had said...this, of course, brings Chase Falladay into the situation by trying to get Kia to retract her story. Instead, Kia, goes into isolation in an attempt to rediscover herself. Two years later, she bumps into Chase and Khalid at a party. This strikes up old memories and curiosity she has about this club and their practices in "sharing" members. Well, she goes with Chase, knowing fully well what is waiting between Chase and Khalid. After the three-way romp, Kia falls in love with Chase...of course, Chase refuses to have relations with Kia without Khalid. After a little persuasion, Kia finally gets Chase alone...but this love comes with a price...as someone from Chase's past seeks revenge and sees Kia as a means to that end. Lora Leigh's books are always a sordid tale of male, female, male, love stories and this book is no different. She does seem to have something big in-store for Khalid, as his story is more developed than in previous books...though he does come off as the third wheel late in the story. This wicked club novel is well-paced and the tones set-up the woman in distress scenario very well. There are some minor issues with the plot...but nothing worth mentioning or anything that will detract from the story..........Another book I would highly recommend is: Sirens by Geo Tin--Sirens (Mass Market)--another sordid tale of forbidden love.

This winning erotic romance illuminates the seduction and romance of Chase Falladay, who was highlighted in "Wicked Pleasure," and Kia Rutherford. The sex scenes in the courtship are explicit and adventurous into the areas of menage a trois, light bondage, and spanking.

Khalid, a character previously introduced in the series, is intimately included in the seduction scenes. I am hopeful that he will be the focus of the next book in the series.

The erotic romance of Chase and Kia was thoughtfully written and very enjoyable to read. My only disappointment is in how Ms. Leigh portrayed the character of Chase Falladay who I enjoyed immensely in "Wicked Pleasure."

The character of Chase Falladay didn't completely resemble the character that was previously in "Wicked Pleasure." Previously, Chase Falladay seemed like a man who was comfortable in his own skin as was illustrated by the openness and ease that he exhibited with his former lovers (i.e., Jaci his future sister-in-law). Ms. Leigh tried to explain and reconcile why Chase was not able to treat Kia with the same TLC as all his former lovers, but I didn't buy it.

Instead, she portrayed Chase as a somewhat diminished, mixed-up guy who was afraid to fall in love with Kia. For example, he had so many hang-ups that he refused to phone Kia after any sexual encounter with her and Khalid. He finally is forced into spending time with Kia (outside of the sexual encounters) only after she is threatened by some unknown stalker. That part of this book made Chase seem lame and immature. In fact, I hated it so much that I almost wished that Kia had told Chase to take a hike and instead pursued Khalid.

In her next book, I hope that she allows her hero (probably Khalid) to take the driver's seat in his courtship of his lady and not simply go along with what fate throws his way.

Format: Paperback
"Only Pleasure" is an erotic novel that falls flat. There are a few decent sex scenes throughout the book, but the storyline that ties it all together is weak, unbelievable and you truly don't care about the characters when it has reached its end.

Kia Rutherford, the main character and supposed heroine of the novel, is almost raped by her husband, Drew and another mystery man. She then realizes that he is a member of the "club", a secret, elite group of men and women whose chief interest is threesome sex. Kia is drawn to Chase Falladay, who is also a member of the "club" and agrees to keep the club a secret in exchange for his protection of her from Drew. Chase was a former government agent who is harboring a dark past of his own, since he had to kill a woman who fell in love with him but tried to kill his brother, Cameron. Kia soon ends up involved in the "club" with Chase and his friend Khalid and it doesn't take her too long to realize that she has only joined the club because she is in love with Chase and always has been and that this is her only option to be with him. She assumes that he will never return her affection because he is only in love with the idea of the club and the "pleasure" that he has only promised her he would provide. But both of them will soon find out that someone bent on revenge wants Chase in agony and will stop at nothing, including hurting Kia, to get to Chase.

The sex scenes, which are the inspiration to purchase this novel, are somewhat worth the time and effort it takes to struggle through the ridiculous story. Some of the things that the men say in this book is an obvious finger pointing at the woman who wrote it. Men don't talk like this, especially the rugged, manly men being portrayed in this novel.
