Accounting professional Erica Teague's numbers have come up. Betrayed by a co-worker and former lover, her bottom line only adds up to prison for embezzlement. Sequestered in her home until her court date, Erica has no plans or hopes for the future. When her neighbour's sexy and persuasive houseguest from Scotland asks her to be his 'American Fling', she reluctantly gives in to his request. After all, she'll be behind bars in a few short months, why not enjoy what freedom she has left?
An enjoyable read, this contemporary novel has the backbone of a good plot. A chance meeting with a sexy and charming stranger leads the heroine to hope for something better than her inevitable incarceration. Falling in love isn't a column on her spreadsheet but Lachlan MacTaggart's charm calculates a new total for her to consider, if even for one short month. He's a strong, handsome and genuinely good man, all the ingredients for a likeable hero. Erica's plight is an unusual one and a nice break from the typical damsel in distress.
Apart from that, the endless descriptions of Erica's feelings and sensations during their sensual encounters becomes tiresome rather than exciting. Some interesting editing has left behind some jarring cut-and-paste mistakes as well. While Erica faces genuine conflict, Lachlan's decision at the conclusion of the story is a bit at odds with his past.
Fans of HEA romances will certainly get a positive return on their investment with this book!
Mel has dumped her ex of two years for cheating on her. She is now determined to have a casual one night stand. When her best friend Adam discovers her plans, he decides to act and offers to fulfill her night of a hot fling. Who better than Adam, known playboy to give her the night she is looking for. Will this ruin their friendship forever or will Mel want more than one night?
The story is fun, flirty, and steamy. Mel seems like a nice girl who has it rough in the romance department. Her inner struggle throughout the story shows her doubts. Adam is a take charge kinda guy and I love the way he is to his friends. They have great chemistry together as friends and then as lovers. I do wish the story is longer to get more from them after they get together. Still a great sweet fun story!
Tempted by a Kiss is a highly recommended read for anyone who loves reading romance!
