Review

"When it comes to these characters, this authors writing, and this story, I am so blown away. Lord, I want to marry this book. LMAO! Dramatic, I'm sure, but I am over the MOON in love. It's without a doubt going down as one of my absolute favorites." - Angie, Angie and Jessica's Dreamy Reads


"This book has depth. And makes you uncomfortable. And so turned on ... basically, I loved this book. I think everyone should read it. It's going on my favorite of 2015 list. Mark my words, friends, Alex Lucian just set my pants on fire. And I'm not even sorry." - Jen,The Literary Gossip


"I am in love with Tempting and the way Alex Lucian writes. Actually, I am not just "in love" with this story, these characters, and this author's immense talent; I am entrenched. Rooted. I am a fudging tree. It was phenomenal. 
I haven't felt this passionate about a book in a very long time. I want to explode with SHOUTY CAPS and !!!!'s all over the interwebz, until everyone reads this and realizes what a gem they are holding in their hands." - Paula, Dirty Laundry Review


As delicious as the sex is, the characters are what invest you in this book. Adele and Nathan are occasionally frustrating, occasionally endearing, and always compelling. You will not be able to stop thinking about them when the book is over." - Vox Libris

So it's a little past midnight and I'm lying awake thinking of this book. No, not thinking, obsessing. I'm obsessing over what I just read. Honestly, I've said this a couple of times and I'll tell you, I had a full blown love affair with this novel. I'm in LOVE, LUST and EVERYTHING in between.

When it comes to these characters, this authors writing, and this story, I am so blown away. Lord, I want to marry this book. LMAO! Dramatic, I'm sure, but I am over the MOON in love. It's without a doubt going down as one of my absolute favorites. It's up there with Gabriel's Inferno which is one of the BEST Student/Teacher romances I've read. And the crazy thing is: I DIDN'T EXPECT IT TO BE THIS GREAT. AT. ALL!

I read the blurb, I saw the cover, and thought, "Oohhhh, sexy! This should be fun." I thought smut. I didn't think deep, soulful, emotional, angsty. God, I was way off. It was so much more than SMUT. It had SOUL. I'm still trying to catch my breath. In a way I'm shocked. Where did this author come from?! I've scoured Amazon, Goodreads etc, desperate for more, praying to the book Gods that I'd find more novels by this author, but sadly this all Alex Lucian has.

This does NOT read as a debut novel. It's simply too fantastic.

The writing is FLAWLESS. **shivers** It's so perfect. I want to read this author's work FOREVER. I read a lot. I "eat, breathe and sleep" reading. I'm passionate about my books. I'm even more passionate when a book surprises me. And this left me giddy. It's torturing me in the most delightfully delectable way. In a way that my mind is consumed. In the way that my heart is going crazy. I can't stop smiling. My chest feels full as though it wants to explode from all the feelings I have for these characters.

As I sit to write this review, I still don't really know how I want to rate this book. I enjoyed the story, but didn't love it.
Tempting is a story of a college student, Adele, who enters into a relationship with her professor, Nathan. For the first half of the book, I really didn't like Adele. She came across as manipulative and as the type of girl who was more interested in the chase of getting the unattainable man than someone looking to establish a relationship.
As we got to know both Adele and Nathan better, I started to like them more. They both have certain emotional issues in common that make them a good fit for each other. Adele gradually revealed that she was much more than the sex kitten she portrayed herself to be initially. Nathan was a bit of a roller coaster ride, but I loved his grand gesture(s) when he drove Adele away the final time.
I guess my complaint about Tempting is that I just didn't really see or feel the transition between two people who were sneaking around to have sex and two people developing a relationship. Most of the interactions between Nathan and Adele were sexual encounters and it would have been nice to have seen additional relationship building.
I also had an issue with the appearance of Nathan's former brother-in-law. It seemed like his character didn't really have a purpose.
I'm still not really sure where I want to put this book in terms of rating. I am curious to see where the series is going.

I read the occasional student/teacher stories because who doesn’t like the sense of a forbidden relationship? I know I do!

We all know that schools have policy when it comes to teacher and student relationships that are beyond...professional. Adele has used her beauty to bend whatever rules that apply to her, but when Professor Easton gets on her case…well let's just say sparks and words go flying!

Professor Easton is all about responsibility and with his past he’s not looking to go forward. The past holds very dear to him so that he isn’t looking for love or even a future beyond what he’s doing now. Adele on the other hand has plans for him and that involves a lot of loving on her part. She’s determined to break him out of his past and into a brighter future...with her.

Their love is forbidden, but policies won’t keep them apart…especially if it’s kept a secret.
But soon it will come down to this…
Is it worth it?

I absolutely love the way this story was played out. You could tell that Professor Easton was determined to fight the attraction toward Adele, but with her persistence his fight seemed to drain him. Not only did you feel the connection toward these characters, but the foreplay...was intense. I’m sure my lip still has teeth marks on it from biting so much. I was so caught up with their story that I couldn’t believe how the time flew by.

A wonderful surprise was to find that Professor Easton isn’t all sugar and nice. Oh no. He has a bit of a dark side to him and, well, let's just say that he does NOT disappoint. (wink wink)

This book totally captivated me and it earned 5 stars!

The two main characters go through a make up-break up four different times. This became extremely tiresome and annoying. Also, even though the characters shared hot sex, their weren't any genuine feelings that they shared but somehow despite that fact, they magically fall in love. It was like the author wanted the book to be an emotional, heartfelt romance with a twinge of sexiness but instead it fell far below.
