You can close your eyes to the things you don’t want to see, but you can’t close your heart to the things you don’t want to feel…
Alexis Summers is happily married and a mother of two gorgeous children. She’s been a stay-at-home mum for nine years now, but it’s time for a change.
Starting a new job with a prestigious hotel, she’s excited about her new career. Her boss, the hotel’s owner Bryce Clark, is rich, gorgeous, funny, single and, as Alexis quickly learns, a genuinely nice guy looking for his one true love.
He is also a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Alexis.
The intense chemistry between them is undeniable — but Alexis is happily married to Rick, and no matter how strong her feelings are for Bryce, she is adamant she will not betray her husband and family. She draws a line in the sand but finds it increasingly difficult not to cross. Will she succumb to temptation?
An enticing, sexy and suspenseful debut of forbidden love and impossible choices …
The incredible first book in the Temptation series.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
3.5 stars, Well written Ms Golland, you kept me reading all the way to the end!,
The Prologue to this book had me in stitches, and also remembering back to when my kids were that young and how harassed I was at times, l started this book with trepidation as I didn’t like that the story is based around Alexis cheating on her husband to whom Alexis has been happily married to for 12 years, the man she’s only ever loved or been with and her two children. She takes a job at a hotel as concierge assistant (CA) at a local hotel, excited to be part of the workforce after nine years of not working. Now this I could relate to, and I must say that even though I was feeling slightly squiffy at her thoughts and reactions to her new boss, Bryce Clark, whom
she accidentally spills her drink over before shes even started her first day!
Bryce is a man who goes after what he wants and gets whatever he wants or needs. He’s sexy and confidant and he takes charge and whisks Alexis off to the designer store to get them a change of clothes…
Now here is another bit I had difficulty with, Bryce knows everything about her, as if he’s stalking her.
By the end of the first week she is promoted to replace his PA who is heavily pregnant, without fully being trained on what to do, on a side note… boy I wish I got paid that wage as a PA
Bryce wants Alexis in his bed, but Alexis is married and it’s not going to happen. But she’s attracted to him, and as time goes by she can’t help but feel like she is falling for him while still being in love with her husband Rick. There are some very hot sexual fantasy scenes! *fanning face*
This story It pulls you right in from the beginning and keeps you on your toes until the very end of the book.
Bryce is caring, compassionate, charming, and fun loving and single, but why he is hell bent on getting a married woman had me a bit confused, and contradicts his other qualities, but I still warmed up to him, Rick sounds like a typical Aussie husband, but he has a secret…
There was a lot of of tension in this book which makes you keep turning the page to find out what happens next.
Things I liked…
Relatable main character.
Characters were described well and you could easily imagine them as the plot unfolds.
Humour, Alex’s inner monologue was awesome.
Rick (the husband) wasn’t made to be an out and out villain.
Alexis wasn’t a young, naive virgin, but a 35 yr old mum who isn’t a size 8!
What I didn’t like…
There is a cliffhanger, but book 2 is out already. There is a third book.
The infidelity, I kept thinking what about the kids, and although I still feel a bit uncomfortable about the way the story is going, but I will read the other two books and see what happens to Alexis, Bryce, Rick, and the two kids that are also going to be in the cross hairs to the decision that Alexis has taken…
Well written Ms Golland, you kept me reading all the way to the end!
