Review #20: Wicked Pleasure, by Lora Leigh

So it turns out that when the back cover of the book says that the lead character is fearful of "facing the world knowing she's a lover to both men," that translates to "at the same time". Which if that's your thing, then hey, good for you, but I don't think it's necessarily for me. Especially when it's twin brothers. That borders a little too close to, you know, incest.

Jaci Wright is an architect (I think? it's never really truly defined), who has been hired by her friend's new husband to redesign the interior of some sort of club that, as it happens, is some sort of sex club. Its members are high ranking men who like to share their wives with other men, but it's not "like that". It's so that they could have another man look after their wives should the need arise. Because this is 17th century Europe and they might need a second in a duel? The heads of security for this club are Chase and Cam Falladay, who are super hot and like to have sex with women together. Cam's in love with Jaci, but he can only express that when his brother is with him.

I don't know. I admit I skimmed this book because, well, it's a book you definitely skim, but there were whole chunks that came out of nowhere. (Like the sex club. And the whole sharing thing. And, bizzarrely, a psuedo-scandal involving a senator. And the climax. Especially the climax.) The sex was good, but the rest of the book didn't make up for it.
