I've also read her free read on her blogs and website, and have to say, oh boy! Can't wait for the next one!
This was such a good read. I enjoy sticky situations that sizzle, and this is the case between Yvette and Adam. Curl up on your sofa with some tea or coffee, or even a glass of wine. Get comfortable. Once you start, the beautiful descriptions and tight writing will keep you turning the pages.
So you can understand my sudden interest in a book with the title Tempting Adam! My roommate had me locked and chained in our apartment to keep me from transforming into a werewolf, and doing something that, I'd really really regret. Maybe not regret, but would land me in jail for life. To appease my sense of injustice, what else was there to do, but surf Amazon looking for something to read and download on the Kindle Adam gave me for my birthday. I trashed everything he gave me, by tossing his carp out the car window as I drove down the Jersey Turnpike, near the Western Spur southbound ramp. Watch out for debris in the roadway. The Kindle was saved because it was the best gift he ever gave me, and I can't afford to replace it.
I digress, so back to the book. The setting is Hollywood, a far cry from Jersey. I've never been to Hollywood, and this took me into a different world, where Adam was a really good guy, and better looking than my Adam, oops, my ex-Adam. At first I didn't like Yvette Giardino, but she redeem herself. I still hated her throughout the story, because she's too pretty to like. There's a crazy half-sister that makes my sisters look like sweet little darlings. My eyes dried up, and I stopped feeling sorry for myself, and was so engrossed in the story, and the hot sex scenes, I forgot about my ex. Hopefully this tiny moment of delight will last, at least until tomorrow, or maybe the next day.
I guess this is where I recommend the book. I recommend it as a great break-up read. It distracted me from my howling stomping pity party and the fact I was dumped for a guy. If only there were more guys in real life like Adam St. Eden. Love the name.

When I first saw the blurb for Tempting Adam, I thought it would be a quick and easy contemporary read. And, I was curious as to why the publisher gave it a `hot' rating. I soon found out!
Yvette has been hired to ensure that Adam fails at running St. Eden Studios and is ousted as CEO. It's what she does. But how far is she willing to go and what is she willing to do? This time the stakes are higher. This time her heart is involved.
Adam has inherited St. Eden Studios upon the death of his father. Adam assumes the position of CEO, but is governed by a Board of Directors. He needs to prove himself capable of running the studio. The Board has been given the authority to hire an assistant for Adam, given that he has no corporate experience. Enter Yvette. But, why was she selected?
There's a lot going on in this story. There's a little mystery, a few twists, a little romance, and a lot of sex. And, my first thought that it would be a quick and easy contemporary read was correct. Overall, I enjoyed it. Was all the sex integral to the story? I'm not sure. Would I read it again? Yes. It's a `busy' story - I want to read it again to see what I might have missed. Would I recommend it? Yes.
I would read more books by Ms. James.
