Wicked Pleasure: Part 1 is the first of three parts. The story is part of Lora Leigh’s Bound Hearts series and was previously released as one book. I love this series so I was looking forward to reading this one, and it had everything that makes Ms. Leigh’s books so great.
Jaci Wright has loved Cameron Falladay since she was too young to really know what love is. After tempting and teasing him for years, he finally takes her home prepared to follow through. There’s only one problem – he won’t take her unless his brother is there too. Not realizing she’s a virgin and that she doesn’t really understand what he intended, she runs when she figures it out. Her heart in pieces, she leaves town.
Cameron Falladay and his twin brother Chase have an unbreakable bond. Chase knows something happened to his brother that destroyed him, but he doesn’t know what or who did it. Cameron wants Jaci with a fire that burns day and night. He gives her some time to mature and live her life, but after seven years, enough is enough.
During the last five years Jaci has lived a nightmare. After stumbling on something she wasn’t supposed to see, Jaci has made some very powerful enemies who are out to ruin her. After spreading rumors that she was caught trying to steal $50,000 and that she tried to seduce her client, her career is taking some hits.
In order to take down the people gunning for Jaci, Cameron needs her to trust him and tell him what happened. But Jaci remembers one night years ago when Cam promised he would kill anyone that tried to hurt her and she doesn’t want to get him involved.
When Jaci finally gives in to Cam and Chase it is HOT. The chemistry between them is off the charts but Chase doesn’t love Jaci in a romantic way. He flirts, he protects her and he is definitely attracted to her, but he’s mostly hopeful that she can heal his brother.
Because its one of three parts it’s not a long book, but it sets up the other two nicely. I’m a sucker for a deeply damaged hero, but I like Jaci as well. She is trying to deal with people sabotaging her in a discreet, adult way, and has a core of steel. Looking forward to reading the other two.
