Ramblings: If you have read the previous 2 books in this series, then you know that Julie, our mouthy zaftig heroine (that is so NOT her body on the cover), has the hots for bald & goateed Nathan. She’s been trying to peak his interest by pushing her Double D’s in his face whenever he comes to her parlor for a massage. To no avail. This is their story.

Mating Game (2009)

mating gameNola Grainger needs a man…and fast. Her grandmother has left her everything in her will, with one small catch: Nola has to be married within a month. But if she’s going to get married, she wants it to last. And for her, that means finding a man with as much passion as she has—who can take care of every desire, every day.

Nola finds three prime candidates: her high school sweetheart Billy, hard-dealing businessman Marc, and sexy handyman Tanner. Trying out three very different—and very desirable—men proves to be more fun than Nola imagined.

But she never thought it might prove fatal. Because someone in town is dead set against Nola sticking around. And with three new men in her bed, the danger might be closer than she thinks…

Genre: Contemporary Romantica eBook

Copyright: March 2005

Series: Part 7 of the ongoing Bound Hearts Series

Pages: 147 (Adobe Reader)

Sensuality: NC-17

Grade: C

Reason for Reading: Just because.

Content warnings: Anal sex, Menage

Plot: What plot? Okay, foine. Ian Sinclair, the owner of The Club, an exclusive society of overgrown frat boys members who like to share their partners and one of its biggest proponents, finally gets his just desserts. Loads of previous characters from the series cameo. Probably best to start with at least Book 4 or Book 5 of the series.

Ramblings: Well, if you read Lora Leigh, you have seen Ian’s alpha male routine before. He pretty much beats his chest throughout the story grunting ‘Me, Tarzan. You, innocent Jane, who cannot handle my depraved style of Wild Jungle Love. Go back to civilization before I lose all self-control and my loincloth.’ Ian seemed a little more suave in previous episodes but I guess Leigh can only do one type of hero. The dragging-knuckles-on-the-floor kind.

Lora Leigh has 749,926 series going on currently, or maybe it’s just 12. I lost count. Her Breed Series is the only series of hers that I read for the stories and plot. All the others, I read just for the smut. 😉 I think the problem in regards to the Bound Hearts is that the formula for this series (Boy Meets Girl, Boy/Girl dance around each other, Boy/Girl do menage near the end) seem especially obvious and stale in novella form which is the length of the majority of these stories. I thought Book 8 Forbidden Pleasures was the best of the series because it was the only full-length novel so far and dealt within a marriage so that’s the book I recommend if you want to try this series. I also liked Book 5 Sacrifice better out of the 3.5 books I have read of this series.
