Editorial Reviews

Review

I can honestly say that out of all the books I have ever read, this has to be my favorite.
- Stephanie's Bookshelf Blogspot

This was one of those books where someone yells "GO!" and it takes off at a sprint from start to finish without a lull or slow point in sight! It seriously 100% immersed me to the point of not moving from my reading spot for a solid five hours because I HAD to know how the plot was going to play out! 
- The Little Black Book Blog

Mrs. Golland has written an enticing, sexy, captivating debut. I am very much looking forward to continuing the story with Satisfaction (book two).
I recommend this to those of you who like Fifty Shades and books like it. This book belongs on your what to read after Fifty list for sure!
-Crazy Four Books Blogspot.

Not only is this book very well written it has all the elements of a romance novel while still keeping you in suspense. Golland keeps you on the edge of your seat. In the process, she creates a world that is excruciatingly real and well put together. She never minces words while describing a scene or setting, nor does she add irrelevant words and descriptions simply to increase her word count. Everything is relevant and enthralling.
-Pure Jonel Blogspot.

This book was amazing! The characters were intricately built, the plot was riveting and the storyline kept the reader on edge from page one. I definitely would give it five stars and recommend it to anyone with taste. This was a great start to a series bound to be stunning.

From the Author

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider and/or purchase my debut novel. 
Temptation was my first attempt at writing, and I'm thrilled that it has received wonderful feedback. 
Temptation is the first book in the Temptation Series which takes you on a whirl wind journey with Alexis, who discovers her happy life is not at all what she thought it was. I'm hoping that you will gasp, smile, laugh, cry and at times nearly tear your hair out while you read Alexis' struggle. But I'm also hoping you keep an open mind and realise that not everything is black and white. Especially in bookworld.
At this stage, the Temptation Series will consist of five books: Temptation #1, Satisfaction #2, Fulfillment #3, Attainment #3.5 and Attraction #4 (A spin off novel)

When I first started this, I thought to myself "I don't want to read about a married woman with kids cheating on her husband" and almost didn't keep reading past the first page but the writing was so good that it kept me enthralled and I couldn't put it down. It is truly one of the best books I've read this year. The character development is perfect, the story amazing and you will just fall in love with Bryce & Alexis. The author does a great job with secondary characters too. Just overall an awesome book. This is one that should have 10,000 5 star reviews. It has everything. Read it, you won't be disappointed. I'm so glad I didn't discover it until this week because I'm almost finished with the second book and the third comes out tomorrow! Waiting would have been hard!

I can see why people are searching for a Mr Clark. this story was different than any other boy I read about romance and a sexy available billionaire man.
it started off as a mom starting back to work after so many years at being home with her two kids. she is happily married but her new boss is trying to change that. he feel in love with her by just looking at her photo to her resume. after so many tactics of trying to win her over , will his last one destroy there relationship?

I loved it. As a mother of two also I could relate to this book. This is the first book that had children in it and wasn't about a single women. As I do love those books too, this one was a change in scenery

First off: I really enjoyed the book. The point of view is Alexis, who is starting her first full-time job after a decade as a stay at home mom. It's her first day, working as an assistant concierge in a swanky hotel, and it does not start well.
She meets her boss, the owner of the hotel, by dumping her drink down his shirt. He's attracted. She's attracted. She has a husband she loves and two kids she adores.
Most of this book is a sort of cat-and-mouse game, where Alexis is trying to pretend that she doesn't want Bryce, her boss, as much as he wants her. He's a multimillionaire with the requisite tragic past and he's nuts for Alexis. Almost immediately. He's not shy about it, either. However, he does respect the fact that she is married and she does not want to cheat on her husband, Rick.
There's a lot of steamy fantasies, longing looks, teasing, etc. And while Alexis tells Bryce she's not available, the fact is, she's still interested. There's nothing wrong with her husband or her home life - they just can't compare to a billionaire playboy and the chemistry between the two of them.
So why two and a half stars?
Editing.
Incorrect word choices, misspelled words, "high heals" instead of "high heels" (a dead give away for someone using a spellchecker rather than an editor), "Honey" spelled "Hunny" throughout, punctuation errors, whole sections that should have been cut from the book, pointless secondary characters that could have been combined, and frankly, part of the reason I'm only giving the book two and a half stars is because I'm just so frustrated with it. This book could have been a really sexy, compelling romance and instead it reads like a second draft before the editor has had a crack at it.

I found this book through Pinterest and decided to look it up. The reviews in here said it was a must read even if you didn't like the premise (rich man steals married woman from family). I was curious to read this story as MANY reviews said the book was written so well. I must say I did NOT enjoy this book at all. I did not like the whole trying to take a happily married woman away from her family. It was rather hard for me to get through this book as i could not relate at all to the main character (it was so bad I can't even remember the main characters names!).

As a mother of 2 who recently separated from their father, i thought maybe I could relate in some way but just simply couldn't. I left my kids father because there was no spark and we had just changed into different people which may have been understandable if that was the premise of this book but it wasn't.

It was a simple story of a woman returning back to work to gain her own independence again after being a stay at home mother for 9 years but was really turned out by this man who is her boss. I just couldn't get into the whole perusing a happily married woman thing! It was devastating to read. ALTHOUGH she does end up finding out something more happened between her husband and an old friend I still couldn't even begin to like the main character. I just couldn't relate and found myself hating her more as my reading continued...

With that said..I will not be reading the rest of this series. Although we have all fantasizes about another person from one time or another I could not continue reading about her affair.

(interesting story of how I came across this gem at the end of the review)

Sometimes reading a book is like stepping into a new world. Things you've never experienced, places you'll never go, situations you'll never be in. Reading Temptation was not that sort of experience for me. It was in many ways things that I have experienced, mixed nicely with things I haven't experienced.

In Temptation, we meet Alexis Summers... 35 year old (check, okay, so I’m *slightly* older than that, but i remember being 35), married (check), mother of two (check) - who has shed a few pounds (check), and is re-entering the workforce (check).

Once she arrives at work in her first day, she had an unfortunate accident
with her new boss --- Bryce Clark, the uber handsome, ridiculously wealthy, boss. The attraction between the pair is immediate and palpable ,and something that cannot be ignored and flirty banter lets loose with wild abandon.

It was a fun ride watching Alexis navigate the tricky waters of a seemingly happy marriage to the only man she's ever been with. Alexis has a great group of friends to let her hair down with, and confiding in, and I felt like I was one of them.

I found myself identifying with Alexis on many levels and, as a flirty lady myself, wondering f I would have made the same "mistakes" (?) and have a similar experience.

Now, please excuse me, I have a sequel to read… On to Satisfaction. I need to know what happens next this story.

***
I would like to share the quick story of how I came across this book.

When you choose to read a book, maybe it’s because someone recommends it, or other times you like the author.
