Jason’s back in town on a covert operation to bring down two men closest to Tammy Jo. Revenge is sweet, or so thinks Jason. But Jason didn’t expect murder to enter the picture and the one woman who’s stolen his heart may just be the murderer. Can Jason keep his salacious feelings for Tammy Jo at bay while he’s investigating or will he be tempted to dip into Tammy Jo’s honey pot once more?
This is the first step-brother romance I’ve read and leave it to Jacquie Biggar to make it more than just sex. There’s so many layers to this story and I loved it! First, there’s the takedown of a ponzi scheme that Jason’s investigating. Then, there’s the steamy romance between Jason and Tammy Jo. There’s the revenge Jason is seeking with his step-father (Tammy Jo’s father). Oh, plus a murder to solve and Tammy Jo to be cleared. Did I mention the touching sub-plot of how Jason’s mother is suffering from Alzheimer’s?
The suspense was spot-on and something I come to expect now from Biggar’s bestselling books. Sizzling romance with steamy love scenes, also a must in her novels, but it’s the characters that make this a five star and a must-read. I laughed, I swooned, I gasped (totally didn’t figure out the murderer until Biggar revealed it), I cried. Highly recommend!
Favorite Character/Quote: Jason. I loved everything about him from his magnetic sapphire eyes to his fierce love for his mother, from his vow for revenge to his passionate forbidden love for his step-sister. He’s a broken alpha hero but Tammy Jo just might be able to put him back together again.
My Rating: 5 stars
The first half sets up lots of crazy events. This was my favorite time.
Long ago, TJ agreed to make her father happy when she married a fellow she didn’t love. Two months into the marriage, she moves to a separate bedroom due to his bad behaviors. In the early chapters, we quickly learn to hate the fellow too. Then he’s dead. Yeah!
But that makes poor TJ look guilty…
Trying to keep track of what happens next will make your head spin. There are undercover officers, budding romances, crazy driving, not so pleasant uninvited guests, and finally, the truth will come out.
I greatly enjoyed the first half. (5 stars).
The second half has a couple of odd scenes that just didn’t ring entirely true to me, so it only gets 4 stars
However, since it ended with a lovely HEA I’ll round up to a 5
Jason arrives on the scene like a knight in shining armour (or rather, a cute chap in a Mustang) and we begin to learn there’s a history between the two. Pulled together by their parent’s relationship, TJ and Jason are step-siblings, but ten years ago their teenage hormones got the better of them, and they explored a relationship. It was Jason who suddenly walked away without explanation and TJ is still hurting.
Married to Tim, a power-hungry man, TJ has tried to suppress her feelings for Jason but having him back in her life is quite a jolt.
Jason’s return is not as innocent as it seems. He wants to visit his mother who is dealing with dementia, but he also still loves TJ. Seeing her again stirs up all the old feelings. Unfortunately, there’s also the small fact that he is there to investigate TJ’s father with the intention of sending him to jail.
Within the first few pages, we uncover the simmering passion that TJ and Jason still have for one another all while falling over the dead body of TJ’s husband on the front lawn.
Who killed Tim? Is TJ involved? What secrets is her father keeping?
I liked this book. It was well written, and I could connect easily to the characters. If I'm honest, I don’t think it was long enough. It didn’t go deeply into the criminal activities or the investigation around the death of TJ’s husband, and I would have loved to find out more about the dark dealings. There were secondary characters whose stories didn’t get their full potential due to the short length. However, this means there’s scope for a spin-off.
It’s a sweet romance where the hero and heroine play tug of war with their feelings, but it’s wrapped up nicely at the end. There is also a sensitive side plot about dementia, and this is tastefully done. It’s a hugely distressing disease, and the author handles it well.
All in all, Tempted by Mr. Wrong was a good read.
I reviewed this title as part of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team (RBRT). Thank you to the author for a copy of Tempted by Mr. Wrong in exchange for an honest review.
