Review

"This is a second chance romance of the best kind. The chemistry between the two of them is smokin' and I love the fact that she's made him the Villian in her novel - because she fights her feelings for him so hard." ~Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
"Twice Tempted reads like a romantic society and kept me laughing the entire time."~ Musing Sallie-Ravishing Reviews
"This is a novel of love, family, and small town life. It's about starting over, the right way. The sexy scenes are plentiful and HOT. Ms. Valentine has given us a very enjoyable story. 
I am definitely looking forward to the next installment!" ~Pat F.- The Romance Man
 
"I absolutely love it when a book, that I don't really have any expectations about, blows me away and becomes one of my favorites. I am definitely a HUGE fan of Marquita Valentine after Twice Tempted. "~Belle's Book Bag Reviews

When I started the Holland Springs series, I was hoping to find stories that were fun and sexy, heartfelt and sweet. A series that gives me the same feelings as Bella Andre's Sullivans series. And guess what, I've found it.

We first meet Christian Romanov and Zoe Ambrose in the series prequel Seduction of the Billionaire. And I do strongly recommend reading that (free) prequel because it gives you the reasons why Zoe is wary of Christian, and why he can't seem to forget his mystery woman from long ago.

Twice Tempted is the perfect name for this installment. Christian has twice tempted the cautious and sweet Zoe. And twice Christian himself has been tempted to forgo his ways by a sweet and tempting in her own right woman.

Twice Tempted was a very charming and sexy second chance love story. And now that I've gotten deeper into the characters and their stories, I am becoming addicted.

OH! Holland Springs is a town with a mysterious legend, one promising love and forever. When you finally get to visit the springs, it is MAGICAL.

Favorite Quotes:

"When you love someone, it shouldn't matter what they do. Serial killers and people who make chocolate-covered raisins excluded."
"We really need to work on your sense of humor."

There would never be another moment like this, so perfect and right. He would never have another woman look at him like Zoe was right now--like he'd hung the moon and stars for her. She didn't see him as Ian Romanov, the actor. She knew him, down to his most guarded secrets, as Christian Romanov, the man.

"Where were you last night?" Christian asked, ignoring the smirk on his cousin's face as they walked out of the bedroom.
"I was otherwise occupied."
"You mean you were shagging some woman blind, and then got pissed."
"You say tomato and I say...We say it the exact same way."

Twice Tempted kicks off the Holland Spring series with Christian and Zoe's story. Christian Romanov has been a bad, bad boy throughout his successful acting career and needs an average, small town kind of girl to doctor his bruised reputation. But Zoe Ambrose has already played that game with Christian and lost. And what's worse, he doesn't even remember her!
The author tells a heart-warming and witty tale of redemption and perseverance as Christian fights for Zoe's trust and her heart. You won't regret this read.
I look forward to the next Holland Springs novel as well as anything more from this author.

I was disappointed with this book and will most likely be in the minority with my review. Going in, I already knew that the storyline would more or less be typical - hollywood bad boy hooks up with small town girl. In this case though, the small town girl was an accomplished author and is famous in her own right but she was still the small town girl with a whole bunch of family rallying around her. I knew this going in, I knew this.

And every page I swiped, I expected the unexpected, when the story would veer off the course worthy of 5 stars, or even 4. But no. Things happened too quickly without enough details which was really frustrating.

Worst of all - typos! There were loads of them that popped up at such inopportune moments! `Gown' instead of `Grown'...this really downshifted the reading experience.

This is a delightful tale of the sweet home town girl from eastern North Carolina, Zoe Ambrose. She is an author of romantic mysteries, on her way to Vegas to a book signing, and to help choose the actor for the upcoming film inspired by one of her novels. She is known for her klutziness, and hilarious bad luck. Prime example, she has had delay after delay on every leg of her journey, and the airline has just lost her luggage. She is leaving the airport, and runs, literally, into a very tall hard body. We meet our very tarnished hero, Ian Romanov. Ian, who prefers to be called Christian, is "People Magazines Sexiest Bachelor" two years in a row. He has a terrible history with the press. Contributing to his infamous reputation are drugs, alcohol, and lots of women. He is the one very serious mistake in Zoe's life, and he doesn't even remember her! She remembers him very well; in fact he is the man she writes as a villain in her ongoing series of novels. He is Dimitri...the evil criminal.
The story travels from the lights and temptations of Vegas, back to Holland Springs, North Carolina. There she has a home, family, friends, and lots of wonderful small town characters who contribute to her everyday quiet life. But, she is followed!
This is a novel of love, family, and small town life. It's about starting over, the right way. The sexy scenes are plentiful and HOT.
Ms. Valentine has given us a very enjoyable story.

GREAT Story of Christian & Zoe!! Small town girl falls for big time Movie Star with a sketchy, recent past...not to mention the past that they have with each other, unknown to them, that was manipulated by outside forces.

GREAT Story and cant wait to read the rest!!
