Gabriella loses her parents and after shutting out friends and family she meets Adrian and instantly falls for him. What I didn't get is that it doesn't seem like she knows anything about him. After some time together she knows he's cheating on her and attempts to leave him. She gets a bit scared when he reminds her how isolated she is and how much control he has over her. Then he leaves for a month and she just stays put anyway. During this time she is supposed to be overseeing a construction project and meets Rafe, the head contractor. She falls for Rafe and he for her all the while knowing that Adrian supposedly knows everything she is doing. When she finally does move out Rafe tells her not to go back to the mansion for any reason but of course she does. She runs into Adrian and he absconds with her. There is also some mystery surrounding Rafe and I'm not sure if he's going to be a good guy or a bad guy or a bad guy trying to do a good thing. I feel like Gabriella went from the frying pan into the fire and didn't learn a darn thing. Overall this book left me feeling dissatisfied and not because of the cliffhanger but because it seems like there wasn't much a story just killing time between the beginning and the end which as I said before was the same scene.
I will probably get the sequel just to find out what the rest of the story is but I sure hope the story actually moves along instead of feeling like its spinning its wheels in place.

I’m going to start this review by saying that this is unlike any of the previous books written by Tessa Teevan. From sweet and funny to charming and sexy and now, suspenseful and intriguing, Instigation is a sure book that will leave you hanging on to every word that Tessa Teevan writes.
Gabriella “Brie” Latham is a young woman who has no one in her life. Being an only child didn’t help especially with her parents passing away. She’s left alone and wandering through her life. Brie, 22 years old, fresh out of college, looking for a job, and uprooted from her hometown an hour outside of Chicago to Philadelphia. I couldn’t imagine myself being in her shoes and how she was portrayed made my heart ache. Even in just the first pages, I can already feel how lonely she might be and how much she is struggling.
But that was until she met the alluring Adrian Morningstar.
Adrian Morningstar is a knight in shining armour. An answered prayer. A prince charming. While Gabriella was spending her time on her computer in a coffeeshop, looking for a job, in comes Adrian who helps Gabriella with her coffee. He was a prince charming, alright. He charmed the hell out of the unsuspecting young woman. Good-looking and seductive, how is that not going to attract beautiful and lonesome? Adrian used all of his charms to his advantage. It worked. It worked for me as well, if that counts! He made me smile and swoon until I wasn’t anymore. There are secrets and deception. Does he know from the start who Gabriella is? Why did he approach her that day at the coffeeshop? What are his plans for her? And why now?

Until he changed. He’s harboring secrets and she can no longer see the man she once loved. He’s now cold. Distant. Unrecognizable.
Rafe Matthews is a man with an agenda. He’s also inexplicably drawn to Brie. It doesn't matter that she’s taken by his boss, he just knows he has to have her. But he, too, has secrets of his own.
And Brie is quickly learning that some secrets can get you killed.
Oh, where to begin? I’m a huge fan of Tessa’s and have read every single story that she’s written so far. And this book is unlike any other work that she’s published. It’s suspenseful and intriguing. It’s sweet and sexy as hell. It’s something that will grab a hold of your attention from the very first page and hold you captive until you've read the words, “the end.” And then you’re going to write her a letter demanding that the second book to be sent to you NOW.
Adrian is intense. He’s shady. I liked him in the beginning and found myself hating him as the story progressed. Then I found myself wanting to know more about HIS story. I’m looking forward to learning more about him later in the Series.
Brie drove me crazy. A part of me wanted to smack her for her stupidity. Another part of me wanted to shelter her from the storm that was inevitably coming her way. She was too trusting. Too gullible. Too sweet. But as the story progressed I got to see her transform before my very eyes. She became a vixen. She became more confident and more in control. It was nice to see her holding her own.
Rafe. Just typing that name makes me smile. He’s hot. Mysterious. Sweet with his words.Read more ›
