Forbidden Pleasure

People have heard of fleeting rumors about The Club. Located just outside Washington, D.C., only its members know where men go when they want to indulge the desire to share their women with a carefully selected male partner. John “Mac” McCoy resigned his membership from The Club when he married Keiley Hardin. Tempting and innocent, sweet and sexy, she would never accept Mac’s desire to share her with another man. However, Mac’s fantasies of sharing his wife haunt his dreams.

Publisher's Summary

People have heard of fleeting rumors about The Club. Located just outside Washington, D.C., only its members know where men go when they want to indulge the desire to share their women with a carefully selected male partner. John “Mac” McCoy resigned his membership from The Club when he married Keiley Hardin. Tempting and innocent, sweet and sexy, she would never accept Mac’s desire to share her with another man.

However, Mac’s fantasies of sharing his wife haunt his dreams. And his passions. Unable to wait any longer to draw his best friend, Jethro Riggs, into his marriage, Mac invites Jethro to their home with the intention of drawing Keiley into the pleasures that can only be achieved when two men love the same woman.

But there’s more going on in Mac’s neck of the woods than a little additional pleasure. A past case, a stalker that likes to play games, and his wife is now in the middle of it all. Passion and pleasure, danger and desire combine as forbidden pleasure becomes an addiction none of them can escape.

    "added material from original. the 1st was 4+ stars"

    added material changed the story. unneeded filler that wanted to brush over. Talked too much and going on over emotions and character development. I love Lora Leigh and loved the original book released. Sex scenes were great and I liked the story. I just got a bit bored with all the added material, angst and explaining of behavior and thinking. it just wasnt necessary and made it a different book than the original I bought. filler and too much explanation to make a book longer doesnt really make it better because it can detract from the story.

    "Erotic & Engrossing Menage"

    Mac, who enjoys sharing women with his best friend Jethro, gets married to Keiley and tries to become a "normal" married man. When he feels that something is missing, Mac asks Jethro to visit and hopes that Keiley will be adventurous enough to try a menage.

    The men set out to seduce Keiley with loving attention and humor. This causes a scandal in their small southern town and attracts a a mad man bent on revenge.

    Forbidden Pleasure is an engrossing combination of suspense, erotic sex and interesting characters, with good dialogue and excellent narration.

    "Talk about Sharing, Wow"
    What made the experience of listening to Forbidden Pleasure the most enjoyable?

    good story line, very good use of erotica


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    both of our men


    How could the performance have been better?

    if the story line was not as good, I would never have purchased this reader. I was hoping I would get use to her reading as I wanted to buy more LL books. Nope, just not worth it!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, I did, but reader was just awful

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Dark Suspenseful Threesome Love Story"

    Former FBI Agent Mac McCoy gave up a lot to marry Keiley Hardin. Knowing that she wasn't ready to accept the sexual lifestyle that he reveled in, he willingly gave it up in order to have Keiley. All he's doing is waiting for the day that she embraces the need that he can so plainly see in her. Mac is content to be patient with Keiley, until her curiosity starts getting the better of her.

    Keiley Hardin is just starting to realize that Mac has been holding a part of himself back from her. Though she desperately wants all of her husband, she is not sure if she can do what he so obviously needs from her. After living for years in the shadow of her parents mistakes, Keiley abhors gossip and does everything she can not to draw attention to herself.

    Jethro Riggs has been waiting for three years for Mac's call to tell him that Keiley is ready. When it finally comes, Jethro wonders how he will hide the feels he has for Keiley from Mac. Although Jethro and Mac have shared many women, Jethro knows this is different because of how much Mac loves Keiley.

    This was an unusual book for me. In previous m/f/m books that I've read (specifically Lora Leigh's), the men only share their women until they are married. As a married woman myself, I had a hard time understanding how Mac could want to share and how Keiley could be in love with two men at the same time. On the other hand, Keiley's struggle with exactly that came across loud and clear. When you throw in a little suspense from one of Mac's old cases and a harpy witch that wants to bring Keiley down, you have a good read. All in all, it was a good book though unusual.

    Story
    "Not for the sexually faint of heart!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not unless they were into explicit sex involving threesomes. This book had a little plot and a lot of sex.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't really have a favorite, their lifestyle kind of creeps me out. And who names their kid Jethro, not too sexy....


    What didn’t you like about Clare Claremont’s performance?

    I just could not get into her sex sound effects, they sounded unrealistic.


    Was Forbidden Pleasure worth the listening time?

    It was ok, it wasn't a waste of my time, but I kind of felt a little nauseated after the whole ordeal, this just isn't the lifestyle I like to listen to.

    Story
    "NOT L.L.'S BEST"
    Would you try another book from Lora Leigh and/or Clare Claremont?

    Yes, of course and have listened to others of hers. I am a fan of erotica and good romance and thought the story had a good premise, however, I believe the plot, subplot, and character definition could have been more well defined and elaborated on.


    Would you recommend Forbidden Pleasure to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I think that Ms. Claremont's voice was okay; her narration did not "spoil" my listen but neither did it impress me. Her southern accents were too harsh, not smooth and did not glide over you. She really needs to work on her male voices, they barely sounded male and in some parts of the book it sounded as if she forgot she was suppose to be the voice of an alpha male. To her credit, however, I thought she did an excellent job with Victoria's aged voice.


    Did Forbidden Pleasure inspire you to do anything?

    I think answering this question would violate my privacy and some ethical code of conduct Audible might assume.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep writing Ms. Leigh; keep narrating Ms. Claremont, but hone up on those big boy voices.

    Story
    "Tedious"

    I didn't care for the narrator. Her voice is grating. Couple that with my annoyance with the plodding storyline & I wanted to stop listening many times. Ms. Leigh's descriptions are unnecessarily repetitious. I'm a sucker for a mystery so I stuck with it. No surprises at the end. Disappointing.

    "Is it hot in here?...or is it just me?"

    ***Warning*** Do not listen to this book in public because you will be constantly blushing. ( I like listen to audio books while running errands i.e. grocery shopping) Hot erotic scenes, but not much in the plot line, its actually very predictable. If you want a naughtly hot-listening this book is for you.

    Story
    "Ehhh...o.k. but not her best"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The sex was hot and the story was o.k. but not as good as many of her other books - her best (in my opinion) are Maverick & Wild Card.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lora Leigh? Why or why not?

    Yes, she has some great books!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene after they decide NOT to go dancing-HOT!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    For over 18 and not for those who don't like strong language.

    "Very Hot!"
    Would you listen to Forbidden Pleasure again? Why?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very steamy and sexy male characters.


    Have you listened to any of Clare Claremont’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not that I'm aware. I'm from the Deep South and have lived in or known people from almost every state south of the Mason-Dixon line and Ms. Claremont's portrayal of the southern accent was awful for most of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
