3. the fact or state of being tempted, especially to evil.

What a story! TEMPTATION is an intriguing novel with a lust driven plot laced with a lot of humor. It’s the first book in THE TEMPTATION series by new author; K.M. Golland and I have to say that I was sucked into the story straight out of the gate!

At first glance, the decision Alexis Summers is faced with is simple, but as the story progresses, it is clear that things are not so “black and white.” Alexis is totally content with her life as a 35 year old, happily married mother of two – well, she is until she encounters the charming and sexy hotel owner, Bryce Clark. When Alexis decides to return to work her simple life suddenly becomes very complicated when faced with the ultimate temptation in the form of her very persuasive new boss – Mr. Clark.

I struggled with the overall plot of TEMPTATION and I had to keep reminding myself that this is a fictional book, but I couldn’t help the stress I felt for Alexis. On one hand, I believe cheating is just wrong, no matter if we are talking about a test or a relationship, but the little devil inside my head really wanted Alexis to take the plunge and get down to business with the irresistible man who was not her husband. Then, as I got to know her husband, Rick, I was screaming: “No! No! No! DON’T DO IT!” As a reader, I internalized the moral and ethical dilemma the very sweet and kind Alexis was faced with – it’s easy to say what you would do when it’s not happening to you! It’s also much easier if one of the parties involved possesses traits undesirable to a mate, but none of these characters do! Alexis, Rick and Bryce - I loved them all!

So the BIG question is: What does she ultimately decide to do? TEMPTATION left me guessing until the very end. The wrap up left us with a very mild cliffhanger – not enough to entirely frustrate the reader, but just enough to make you want to dive into the next installment (tentatively set for an early March 2013 release). Get this book; you are going to love it!
