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 …
Wow, weeeeee! What a fantastic non-stop captivating book. This is my first experience reading KM Golland and I have certainly added her to by auto-buy and favourites list. Temptation was certainly as the title claims, the temptation between a man and a married woman. Ms Golland’s prose is fabulous and easy flowing with little kicks throughout the book to keep you on edge. I am certainly biting my nails waiting for Satisfaction.
Alexis Summers is a happily married wife and mother, with both children now in school she has the opportunity to head back into the work force. Needing to spend time with adults instead of children is a big draw, even if the guilt can get unbearable. Alexis is determined to enjoy her new found career.
Has acquired a job in the hospitality industry as a concierge assistant and is looking forward to working in the 5 star hotel. Arriving early for her first day, Alexis grabs a coffee and when she turns around runs smack bang into a suited up man and spills her hot coffee all over him. Mortified Alexis cannot apologise enough. The man isn’t unperturbed and simply leads her away. They end up in the Versace store where he proceeds to buy her a new dress. Alexis is overwhelmed by this man’s generosity and it finally becomes clear who this man actually is. BRYCE CLARK – the owner of the hotel and more.
Alexis is instantly attracted to Bryce, but she is married after all. Although it doesn’t hurt to look and he is doing the same to her. It seems Alexis has made a very good first impression somehow, Bryce decides he wants Alexis to work as his concierge attendant solely. Alexis fits right in and enjoys her work; she meets Lucinda Clark, who is Bryce’s PA. Lucy is 8 months pregnant and going on maternity leave soon. Because Alexis does fit in so well, Bryce decides on the spot that she will be his relieving assistant.
Alexis starts training with Lucy and is having a blast. Lucy is a wonderful woman and is getting as much information from Alexis on her impending birth. Bryce loves driving Alexis crazy with flirting and then kisses her. WHAT, what was she thinking? She’s a married woman! Bryce makes his feelings clear and Alexis tells him that it cannot happen ever again. But……..
Will Alexis circumvent the temptation of Bryce or have an affair with him? With all the benefits that come with her new job, will she fall under his spell? What about her husband and children?
With many incidents where Bryce’s generosity is provided, Alexis finds it harder to resist him and has even more guilt about her long hours away from her children. Temptation has everything, the thick sexual tension surrounding the pair, the incidents, the twists and the romantic side of Bryce is all addictive and magnificent. I highly recommend this to all adult romance readers, this is a MUST read.
