Description from book:

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 at happiness forever?

My Thoughts:

I am amazingly addicted to Lora Leigh’s Bound Heart series (ok, really I’m addicted to everything she writes). I love her dominate and tortured heroes who all have some dark edges in their sexuality. The men in the Bound Heart series have a deeper need to share their women with a carefully chosen third. Most are member of the Trojan Club – a place which allows them to socialize with like-minded men. I’m entirely sure that I always buy the reason or need that the men have to share their women, but thorougly enjoy reading about it – and reading about Cameron and Jaci (and Chase) was no exception for me.

Cameron has some deep emotional issues that make him reluctant to become to close to women. In order to prevent himself from getting too close, he shares his women with his twin brother Chase. But a young Jaci, cannot handle Cameron’s need to share her. She runs as far away from the brothers as possible. However, several years later, she takes on an interior design job that puts her in close proximity to both Cam and Chase. Cam has no intention of letting Jaci get away from him this time. He and Chase successfully seduce Jaci. However, it is Cam that Jaci loves. Of course, nothing is simple especially since Jaci is in danger due to an incident in her past.

In the end, Jaci seems to free Cam from his need to share her with his brother – at least that is the impression that I was left with at the end of the book. Unlike Keily and Mac from Forbidden Pleasure, Jaci and Cam do not make Chase a permanent part of their relationship. I do find it a bit difficult to keep track of how these menage relationships are going to work out. However, they are sure a lot of fun to read about. I was very excited that Ian Sinclair, his wife Courtney and the Trojan Club appeared in the book. Forbidden Pleasure (which I absolutely loved – and have only read about 10 times) seemed to be a bit disconnected to the club and the previous stories. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
