Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tempting Fate is a rare combination of classy prose, sweet romance and erotic love scenes. Highly recommended." - Jill, Goodreads reviewer

"I very much enjoy her style. There's always a darkness within, a desperation that keeps them apart and Tempting Fate is very much in this style." - Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews

"There is something about Amber Lin's style which makes me devour every single word she writes...As always, Amber Lin does a phenomenal job with Tempting Fate and writes a captivating and gripping third book in the Lost Girls series." - Swept Away By Romance

No Spoilers…..This book is written from Rose’s POV. This is a standalone without cliffhangers. I enjoyed reading this book however it wasn’t memorable. I didn’t feel the emotions, I didn’t connect with the characters. The story was rushed, and seemed to only gloss the surface of what could have been a 5 star novella. It was a quick enjoyable read, and the writing was good. This story earned the 3 star rating and I would recommend it as a lazy day read. However don’t expect more than a cute quick story.

This is the seventh book in the Chicago Underground series. It's a short sweet story. But for me the intimacy felt awkward maybe because the story was rushed. Which allowed no time to acclimate to the characters. Or it could be due to Rose's inexperience which is referenced in the story. Or it might be because Phillip is protective of her and she is afraid he won't approve.
I found the preview for this story set up a story that would elaborate more on Phillip and his protectiveness towards Rose, but again for a short story it was rushed.
It would help to have a little more background on both Rose and Drew. I feel like the sex is more gratifying and pleasurable for Drew. What I seek in sex is not what Drew is providing. Rose seems to enjoy it. To me it's more like wham bam thank you mam. It's over too quickly. Not enough angst or build up. The words are great and erotic but the actually connection is lost.
The story has three main topics: business, ballet, and protection. The business portion is dry and boring. The ballet is a means to an end. The protection is stifling and smothering. I'd understand if Rose was a teenager but she is twenty-four. Again with some background on Phillip I might have a better understanding for this characteristic.
Phillip should be training her to protect herself. Phillip should teach her how to be strong and independent. Instead I feel she is reliant on Drew the same way she is with Phillip.
It was an okay story. It was my first read by this author.

First of all, can we just admire that gorgeous cover for a moment? If you're not familiar with The Lost Girls series yet, you won't need to have read them to be able to follow this story, however this novella was definitely a more romantic, gentler version than any of Amber Lin's other books. The Lost Girls characters have all lived very hard lives - crime, rape, abuse, prostitution, etc. Her writing is raw and gritty, but the author is definitely, in my opinion, a master of her craft.

This is the story of Rose and Drew. Rose is Philip and Colin's sister; Drew is Philip's lawyer. Rose suffered several traumatic events as a teenager that have molded her into the woman she is today, but she's taking measures to step out of her sheltered life, both emotionally and physically. In her mid to late twenties, Rose has had very little experience with men and romance in general. We know how seriously Philip takes protecting his family, and he's probably the most protective of Rose. After all, he's been her protector since he turned eighteen. His concern for her was one of the sweetest moments I've seen from him yet. She was happy to remain sheltered and docile for the past decade, pursuing her love of ballet. She has almost reached her prime as a ballerina, and knee injuries threaten to put an end to her career. Her plans to open a ballet studio and move out of the family home couldn't have come at a better time because her crush on Drew has just taken a turn from fantasy to reality. Philip will definitely not be pleased about either development.

I absolutely adored this story. I mean, I'm head over heels for this couple. I think Rose would have been a vivacious and feisty heroine were it not for her past.

This is the seventh book in the Chicago Underground series. The first 3 books are Allie and Colin, books 4-6 are Shelly and Luke. This one is Rose and Drew. While you don't need to read the previous six novellas first, we do meet both of the characters in the first 3 books.

This one is different from the previous books. It's more sweet, not too much drama. Besides Phillip, but he's a jerk anyways.

Rose is a ballerina that is living under her older brothers thumb, she's always had a crush on Drew, Phillip's lawyer. But she's ready to follow her dreams of opening up her own studio and to move out.

Her and Drew finally realize that they both have feelings for each other.

The story felt a little rushed to me, didn't got really deep into their relationship. Plus what really threw me off was in the first set of books (sorry, but I can't remember which book out of the 3), Allie catches Rose and Drew making out. But in this one, that never happened and their first kiss in this book was their very first kiss. At least that's how it came across to me.

Still a good, quick read.

3 stars - ARC was given in exchange for an honest review. Quick read, given the context of the story, I expected a much grittier, more intense read. I felt like there was some room to get a little more in depth with the plot. It just seemed to skim right along the top without ever really diving in to the deep end. I was left wanting to know more about the characters and their interaction with each other often fell flat. Wasn't impressed enough to look into the rest of the series.
