Deanna Harrison has been attracted to Jonas since the first time they met. Problem is she is a busy woman working on her new career and she has no desire to be another conquest for him. She just can't seem to get him off her mind. He's drop dead gorgeous and no other man can compare to him. She is getting weaker and weaker to his advances and just about ready to cave.
Jonas Phoenix is sexually frustrated and the cute blonde he just met just won't do the trick. There is only one woman for him and she keeps blowing him off. Rejection after rejection, but he is determined to have her, especially after they share their first kiss. Now he is more resolute to have Deanna and he is going to pull out all the stops to make it happen. Not even her two older brothers; Wade, his best friend, or Dean, her twin, are going to stop him.
This love story has been five years in the making. Once they set their eyes on each other, neither could be satisfied with second best. One kiss and now it's time to see if it's for real. After a sexually charged weekend in Miami, they both know they are in trouble and now must figure out how to make it work.
This is a believable well written story. There was a nice slow buildup of the romance and the anticipation was incredible. The love making is smoking hot with heart and passion, not to mention the most imaginative that I have read in a very long time.
Jonas is just perfect. He is a complete alpha male, but has a past that has made him a touch insecure. For a man whose childhood was so void of any love, he amazes me at his capacity to open his heart and embrace what the two of them have. He takes my breath away. Deanna is a brilliantly amusing woman. Her wit and sarcasm is a hoot and I love her strength. She has to be a very strong woman being surrounded by three dominating males.
I can see more wonderful stories in the future. I'm hoping I will soon meet Gracie's sister, who has just been discovered and also Dean, the last of the Harrison's siblings to find love. He had his heart broken in a prior relationship and is love shy. I'm looking forward to more captivating and sensual reads to come. I will be following this great series all the way to the end.
Jonas was a special forces computer expert, a skill he utilizes daily in the running of Wade - Phoenix Investigations. His attraction for Deanna has only strengthened over the years since their initial meeting. So after 5 long years Jonas finally tells Wade he wants to pursue a relationship with his sister. With one hurtle out of the way, Jonas sets his sights on the object of his desire, however Deanna proves very "hard to get".
A former nurse, Deanna has left that career to pursue her love of interior design, and has set up her own company. She is strong minded and independent and while sexually attracted to Jonas she believes him to be a womanizing playboy, not relationship material. What she doesn't bargain for is Jonas's heartfelt pursuit of her affection which comes with an invitation to spend a weekend in Miami alone with him. After a few days of cautious deliberation Deanna finally gives in and agrees to go away with Jonas.
Pleasure Bound is a hot, sexually explicit erotic romance. There is light bondage, a spanking scene and a toe curling kinky video Skype chat. Deanna and Jonas's relationship isn't all smooth sailing as they butt heads over his penchant for control and her determination to be independent. Despite their conflicts the sensuality sizzles.
Ms. Rainey is known for writing characters with close family ties. I really liked the bond Deanna shares with her mother who she turns to for relationship advice. I also liked her brothers Wade and Dean, who is Deanna's twin. Dean is especially protective and shares a psychic link with his sister. Dean is another Anne Rainey hot alpha male. Dean has quite a chip on his shoulder related to a previous bad relationship. I'm looking forward to his story which will be told in the next book of the "Hard to Get" series, Naked Games.
Wade and Gracie have secondary rolls in this story and I enjoy when an author revisits the main characters from a book's pre-equal. Ms. Rainey pens a wonderful surprise for Gracie into this story which leads nicely into the next book of the series.
I found Pleasure Bound to be far more relationship driven then it's predecessor So Sensitive, however there is a plot twist which adds a suspense element to the storyline when Deanna unwittingly takes on a major drug dealer as a client. A deadly confrontation requires Jonas and the Harrison brothers to intervene and help her.
Pleasure Bound is another sweet, super hot, thoroughly enjoyable Anne Rainey erotic romance. I will say Jonas's persistence and patience pays off because his reward is a special HEA with Deanna.
Jonas has loved Deanna for years. She won't give him the time of day because she thinks he isn't serious about relationships. When Jonas launches an all-out mission to win Deanna's heart, she doesn't stand a chance against the passionate man!
I was a little bored with Deanna for a while. I get that she's been stifled by know-it-all men her entire life. She's worked hard to get where she's at as an interior designer. But when Jonas reveals her new client is a criminal, she doesn't believe him? I think I would've given the guy a huge smooch and thanked him. She questions his knowledge to the point of being ridiculous. The man's job is to know who every piece of scum is in their town! Thankfully, Deanna comes around and I don't spend the entire book cursing her stupidity.
I really enjoyed this one, and Deanna's twin brother, Dean, will hopefully have his own book soon!
