He’s very sweet and accommodating when he’s had sex with her. But when she turns from him to her main target (a plan she’s let him in on, so where’s the surprise?), he turns surly, sharp tongued and mean. I really don’t get his attitude. They’ve both agreed they’re just sleeping with each other and she’s using him for sex (his words). So where does he get off getting judgmental about her? He disapproves of her character but he can’t keep his hands off her. One day he says he doesn’t care about her motivations because nothing excuses her trying to get her claws into a rich older man. Then a few days later he insists that she tell him just why she behaves the way she does.
He acts like there’s more between them than sex. But every time he tries to press his point, it’s with forceful kisses or sexual strokings and gropings. How does that prove his point? These two have nothing going for them except animalistic couplings and they should leave their affair on the boat where it belongs. Relationships like this should be sunk under water like the Titanic.
When Harper Riley booked a cruise for singles, she was looking for something more permanent than only a brief affair. She even has a specific man already picked out, and she wants to grab his interest before another woman gets a chance. Harper knows the background of the widower, and the successful businessman is definitely rich enough to make her future work out as she desires. After personally learning emotional attachment can lead to heartbreak, she keeps any of her relationships from focusing on feelings.
Though Harper had her plan all mapped out on how to reach her goal, the brief contact she had with one man on the cruise made her momentarily think about pleasure and not her objective. Sadly, the bank account of Teagan Carmichael is rather small since the charter plane company that he and his brother own is just getting started. But she has obligations, so setting her sights on someone else is necessary. Yet Teagan also has formulated his own plan, one which has Harper starring as his willing sexual partner.
The first time I met Harper, I thought her ideas about being in a relationship with a man were not the best. But as the story unfolds, I came to realize that the way in which she was brought up distorted her future opinions about men, making it difficult to change her current views. There were a few times when I so wanted her to see situations differently, as Kimberly Van Meter repeatedly does not make things easy for Harper and Teagan. He is such a wonderful hero who was met in a previous book, but his own story is totally a standalone. Teagan is compassionate and respectful, yet he is also a red-hot lover in bed. Some of their encounters are very heated with almost uncontrollable lust.
Kimberly Van Meter puts this couple through the wringer more than once along the road to lasting happiness, and several events are very challenging. TEMPTED is a constant rollercoaster of emotional experiences. Discovering whether Teagan would give up on his quest to win over Harper kept me reading, as these two can be stubborn plus each believes their reasoning should be followed. I never knew how either would react, and this fact also kept my attention throughout the book.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
