Temptation - Temptation #1

KM Golland


TemptationSometimes being happily married and completely content is not at all what it seems.

That is what 35 year old, happily married mother of two, Alexis Summers finds out when she decides it is time to return to work. After being a stay-at-home Mum for the past nine years, Alexis now realises a complete career change is just what she needs.

She becomes a Concierge Attendant in a prestigious hotel in Melbourne working for the owner of the hotel, Bryce Clark. He resides in the penthouse, is extremely hot, and is a man who always gets what he wants and what he wants is Alexis.
She does a relatively good job resisting Bryce at first, but the undeniable chemistry, sexual tension, and playfulness between the two of them is intense.
Bryce has copious amounts of money, sex appeal, and above all else, is a genuinely nice guy. Bryce has been waiting for his one true love to come along, and he is positive that one true love is Alexis.

There is one problem, she is happily married to Rick. And, no matter how strong her feelings for Bryce are, she is adamant she will not cheat. She draws a line in the sand but finds it increasingly hard not to cross. Will she succumb to Temptation?

The Review

I'm going to be very honest with you all I was not expecting a great deal from this book as I am dead against infidelity in any shape or form (even to the point of fantasizing), I am a firm believer in staying true. I honestly had many difficulties in the beginning of this book due to my own circumstances. I found it difficult to differentiate my own personal experiences to those been written in a book. I know what you are all thinking .... its fiction, but I enjoy reading so much that it becomes real to me, especially when a book is well written. I have to say that this one is exactly that!

I thoroughly loved the fact that Alexis wasn't your stereotypical 21 year old, with unresolved issues (although I secretly love them). Alexis is a mum of two, married and knows her own mind. She is independent in wanting to contribute to the family and return to work when she finds herself falling for the one she least expects too, her boss. I absolutely love Alexis especially her whitty one liners like; "just the sheer mention of mouth to mouth had my pussy tingling with excitement". Alexis loves her children a great deal and is happy and content in her life but what fate holds for her is something she never would have expected.

KM Golland does a great job with this book and although there is the infidelity factor about it I actually found myself beginning to enjoy it, thanks to some much needed support from Kelly at Kellys Kindle Konfessions. KM Golland keeps Alexis to her true character and although she has moments of weakness she also has moments of empowerment. I love the fact that KM Golland throws in a couple of curve balls so you don't quite know whats coming and then suddenly *BAM* there it is! I like Bryce hes strong and controlling (but not in a creepy kind of way), he isn't the male tart like most male billionaires. He clearly adore Alexis but he is used to getting exactly what he wants and what he wants is Alexis.

Ohhh I nearly forgot to mention there are some pretty hot scenes in this book and not actual intimacy. I don't want to give to much away but here's a little taster; "He trailed his hand down to my clit and took control of it instantly, forcing me to groan and completely lose myself in the moment. I was utterly riled and so fucking turned on" The chemistry between the two characters is amazing, the description is brilliant, so that you have great understanding of how palpable the chemistry is between Alexis and Bryce.

A big bonus for many of you will be there isn't a cliff hanger as such. There are unanswered questions and you can see a lot of scope for book two, but no major OMG how can you leave me hanging like that. I know alot of my girls hate cliff hangers so this will really appeal to you. Overall I gave this book four stars I believe that this was more about my personal preference and about how difficult I found it initially, however I do believe that now that I have so much more understanding about the characters and who they are book two will not be difficult for me. I look forward to reading much more from KM Golland as here is an amazing story which treads on difficult situations but it is done so in such a way that actually enhances her story rather than create a divide between people who enjoy reading about infidelity and those who do not. KM Golland does a wonderful job at bridging that gap as well as giving compassion and understanding to her readers and her characters. "If you are in love with two people, choose the secound one; because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn't have fallen for the second" - I'll just leave you to think about that as this quote actually made me look at the whole story in a different light.
