Shameless Embraces Reviews

    22/4 - 3.5, but I'm feeling generous. The first book, Embraced, had an interesting side story involving MC Marey's (hate that name, why not spell it the normal way?) abusive ex-husband and his violent obsession with her, but it wasn't followed to my satisfaction. I would've liked one less sex scene and one more involving Vince (although, maybe if I had read the previous five books in the series, I would have learned all I wanted or needed to know about Vincent). The sex scenes throughout the book were pretty much what you would expect from Leigh - frequent, hot, and explicit - with a side of sharing that's not always part of Leigh's books.The second book, Shameless, had less of a story (in my opinion), just focussing on Courtney's 'seduction' of Ian in spite of his attempted denial of his feelings for her. She's the daughter of his best friend, therefore off-limits, especially considering his lifestyle, of which daddy dearest (with her mum) is also an enthusiastic participant. Really don't get the appeal of sharing, or being shared, but at least it's not dub/non-con. I would definitely consider reading the previous (and any further) books in the Bound Hearts series.

    The discription in Goodreads for this book is completely WRONG Book 6 is about Marey has spent her life taking care of others, now with her ex husband, Vince, trying to kill her, Sax the man who loves her wants to take car of her for a change. Will she let go and let him love her and take care of her? Great book, awesome ending, Love it! BOOK 7 is about ...Courtney and Ian...Khalid too. Ian is lost and thinks love for him doesn't exist, courtney has loved him since she was a child. Dane and Marguerita, Courtney's parents, ask Ian to look after her while she is in America. Ian thinks he is too old, 11 years older, for Courtney and Courtney along with the help of Khalid proves to him she is not that innocent. I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THEY CAME UP WITH THE DISCRIPTION BUT IT IS LISTED INCORRECTLY. HERE I HAVE LISTED THE ONE FROM AMAZON THAT IS CORRECT.Embraced Marey has run from herself and from Sax for over three years.

    Two short stories in Leigh's Bound Hearts erotic romance series. Series: "Embraced" (Bound Hearts, 6)"Shameless" (Bound Hearts, 7)The Stories"Embraced" is the story of Sax Brogan and Marey Dumont, his attraction to her, as well as his need to accept her restrictions. But it's all over now. Her ex's actions as well as Marey's have made it plain what she truly wants, and Sax won't allow it to stand in his way.I do love this series with its alpha males who only want to protect their women and love them into utter paradise. Sure, the scenarios are unlikely and, per usual, the wealth in these makes their action so easy to accomplish and out of our own realm of experience, but when it comes down to it, it's all about fear and hope, love and caring."Shameless" is Ian and Courtney's story. And it's damned funny with Ian's stubborn adherence to a sense of honor toward his friend and Courtney's father, Dane. Put Ian's honor up against Courtney's own stubbornness, and you just know Ian hasn't a chance. It's almost funnier because Courtney's parents enjoy a threesome-relationship, and now dad is upset that his daughter wants the same thing. Hmmm, hypocrisy much? Then there are Ian's friends, all helping to plot his downfall, LOL.We learn about the Club and its founding. We also learn some background history on Dane and Marguerita's rough early years.I'd like to say it's a lesson for men in never opposing your woman, but Sax puts the lie to that one, LOL!The CoverI can't help it, when I look at this cover I think the guy whose face we're looking at in this close-up is a cop. It's the sunglasses. And it takes awhile before I notice the tarty looking woman reflected in his glasses.The title is a convenient combination of the two short stories and perfectly sums up their sexual preferences, for they are Shameless Embraces. And why not, they're consenting adults, and happy.

    I only read "Embraced" which is book 6.... This is a pretty hot book. I would give it 3 1/2 stars. Its not as hot as other Lora Leigh books however and I'll tell you why. Marey is a woman who is running away from an abusive ex-husband. She is worried that he is going to kill her or someone she loves. Sax is a man that Marey has wanted for years, but is too afraid to get involved with him for fear that her ex will hurt him. Sax is big and buff and can take care of himself but Marey is still worried...This is where it kinda bugged me. Marey was constantly running away from Sax. Literally. She didnt want to get involved because she was so worried that he couldn't protect himself. Who is she kidding right? LL's heroes are always able to protect themselves cause they're big, strong, hot men! The sex is hot and there is a pretty good menage... but the story line bugged me just enough to give this just under 4 stars...

    Embraced was the first in the 2 novellas in this book. It was a really good erotic suspense. The fact that Marey tried to keep sax out of it made her all the more likeable. It stopped her being so much of a wallflower. This story sizzled with extra sizzle lets see if Ian's story matches it.Shameless is the second story in this book. Here we get to see the elusive Ian fall. I love that Courtney is bold and unabashed. She knows what she wants and does what she needs to so she can get it or him in this case. The story is hot and fraught with sexual tension and at the end did have me crying and them fanning my self because as we all know make up sex is some of the best.

    I gave this book 3.5 stars simply for the sex scenes, which were typical of Lora Leigh - hot, hot, hot! Unfortunately the romance part of the stories left a lot to be desired. I definitely prefer a book where the characters are not totally blind to their feelings. In Embraced, Marey was so determined NOT to give in and love Sax, and in Shameless, Ian fought his attraction and feelings for Courtney with everything he had. At some points the characters' actions bordered on juvenile. I didn't love either one.

    Would have rated it higher but I just could not get into Courtney. Iam was okay but Courtney sort of pissed me off which is all good because she is one of the most memorable of the women in the series. Sort of like Tally from Bound Hearts 4. The difference (beside the obvious) was that Courtney was younger so I contributed some of her actions to her youth whereas Tally was grown and all DIVA. So, my problem with Courtney was all on me -- not Lora Leigh.

    Okay…let me say this, Embraced is a great story. I loved it. It's a keeper. But! Shameless, you are going to need tissue for. And, a lot of it. I would love to give you the page number but I don't know if that would be a good thing or a bad thing. So let me say this…When Ian invites the third and there is a ruckus outside the bedroom doors, GRAB THE TISSUE!!!!! And do it fast. Don't read any further until you do.

    This was a fun sexy book. I enjoyed the second story much more than the first. Courtney is up there in my favorites of the woman that drive these men crazy with all the schemes. Her and Tally should team up more often to reek havoc.

    Both stories are very good. Series just keeps getting better with each story.The sex is not for the faint of heart. Very hot, descriptive sex. The series is about a club of men who share their women...

    Typical Lora Leigh. Nothing really special about this, but it is two books in one from the Bound Hearts series. (Embraced and Shameless)
