Since Chase Falladay came to her rescue two years ago, Kia Stanton has never been able to forget the powerful man or the kind of life he leads. So two years later, when she runs into Chase and his friend, Khalid, and leaves with them that night, she knows exactly where it is all heading. However, little prepares her for what it is like to be in Chase's arms...and in his bed. After years of holding back, Kia is finally able to be the woman she's always dreamed of being, in his arms.
Kia is a dream Chase has not allowed himself to entertain. Now that he has her, it's her heart he's after and he's determined to win it, no matter the cost. And even though they both agreed that it would only be for pleasure, somewhere along the way it becomes an all-consuming love.
Only Pleasure is a sizzling-hot, sexy, erotic romance novel from best-selling author Lora Leigh.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Firstly, let me get my moaning out of the way - I really hate It when Audible don't have the other book in a series because this listen would have greatly benefitted from hearing about the previous stories/histories in the series as various characters were mentioned together with past events that I knew nothing about. I now see that Book 8 Forbidden Pleasures and book 12 Dangerous Pleasures are listed but there's no mention of them belonging to the Bound Hearts series and where's the rest?
As to this listen - it's a delicious typical LL book but (apparently) this whole series is focused around a secret men's Club called Trojon where men all focus on only 'pleasuring' the females (no love or commitments) - usually in a ménage M/F/M situation with very hot eRotic consequences. Kia has wanted and dreamed of Chase for years and now, finally, her dreams come true and she get's Chase but Kahld, the third, comes with the package too.
It's 'heat' factor is way way out there but it's also coupled with some very emotional moments too. LL's books are mainly filled with dark brooding Alpha males who want to/and end up sexually dominating their women but this one has bdsm, toys and an extra body too. There's character development (much needed) in the plot together with tension, suspense, a mystery, death threats and sexual passion that's even off LL's scale as we find out who the venomous villain is and why he was driven to do it.
Worth a credit? If you've listened to her books before then you know what you're gonna get and for me this was definitely creditworthy, yes it could have been better to listen in order and maybe Audible will soon list them all - but be warned 'cause your listening device is probably going to melt!!!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Well, after hearing Only Pleasure for the 50th time in the first 2 hrs on rapid speed, I just had to stop. Yes, L.L. can write a hot story and I wanted to hear Kalid's interest, but gads enough already and do some good writing!
this had the potential for a good story, but I am done w/ L.L. stories! Burned once too often
ABSOLUTELY NOT! She is awful for me. I thought I could tolerate her one more time as I wanted to listen to this book, however, she is over the top for me. I had to speed up the listen as she is just too slow and breathy for me.
I had to stop!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Yes, if they enjoy an erotic romance story with some danger thrown in.
This was a great listen for me. I do wish Audiable would release books in order and just not random books from a series. Dangerous Pleasure and Forbidden Pleasure are in this series but I did not see any others. Each are great listens. Caution each contains mature themes.
Thank goodness these people are wealthy and sex is free. I liked the story line, but there was so much sex being had or daydreamed about that i felt a little dirty. don't get me wrong, it was hot, but when do these people have time to work? good story, good narrator. If you need a turn-me-on book this is a good one. Would have been a five star if it didn't make me feel like a sex addict.
