Forbidden Pleasure by Lora Leigh
Published by St. Martin's Griffin
Grade: C+

The Club is private, exclusive and only for those men whose fantasies run to the more forbidden side. . . People have heard only 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. Former FBI agent 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 desires to share her with another man. However, Keiley’s growing curiosity and Mac’s own fantasies of sharing his wife haunt his dreams. And his passions.
Unable to wait any longer, Mac invites his best friend Jethro Riggs, 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 involving astalker who likes to play games has shown up again, but now Keiley is in the middle of it all. Passion and pleasure, danger and desire combine as the forbidden becomes an addiction none of them can escape.

I'll never again be able to hear the name Jethro without getting a hot flash. I started off hating the name, but by the end of the book I was all into it.

Jethro met Keiley first, but he knew that he wasn't sensitive enough to take care of her properly. He knew that Mac would fall for Keiley, and since Jethro and Mac have often shared women, he thought that it wouldn't be long before he had the chance to sleep with her. However, instead of calling him to invite him to bed, Mac was calling to tell him that he was going to marry her.

Even though Keiley was aware of the rumours about them, Mac never introduced her to it. She was an innocent little virgin and he didn't think she could handle it.

So now, it's been three years. Mac took Keiley away from the big city, and moved her to his home town. It's been difficult for Kailey because a women that Mac rejected over 15 years ago, hates Keiley and is always starting rumours and being snotty to her. For the most part, Keiley is able to ignore it all.

Things start to get really bad after Jethro comes for a visit. The rumours of a menage are on everyone lips, plus a stalker is after them. Stalker is a man who wasn't able to make it into the FBI, so he stalks the wives/girlfriends of men in law enforcement in order to prove that he is smarter than them. He challenges the men to see if they are good enough to protect their women from him.

What I liked best about Forbidden Pleasure, was all the emotions running through the heads of the trio. Keiley was afraid of falling in love with Jethro, and thinking that it will be a betrayal to her husband. Jethro is afraid that Keiley wont love him, and he isn't sure he can just walk away from her once his vacation is over. Mac is playing mind games and pushing his wife and best friend together.
When Keiley realises what it is that Mac is up to she really lays it into him. I had a 'You go girl' moment when she started yelling at him.

Seeing as this Lora Leigh, you know that the lovin' is hot hot hot.
