(W)REC(K) A BOOK: Tempted

When personal assistant Savannah Wood lands a dream job with up and coming rock star Nick Hart, it seems too good to be true. He's devastatingly handsome, reserved and charming... but he has a secret he's determined to keep.

Their attraction to one another is immediate and Savannah is determined to keep a professional relationship between them. She's been burned before and has no desire to reopen old wounds.

The lines between professional and personal begin to blur when Savannah finds out Nick's secret: he's a century old vampire with a painful past. He's also hesitant to open himself up to her, yet they find their temptation to one another is stronger than either can resist.

The paparazzi, a string of murders and cryptic, ominous letters threaten their budding relationship. Will their attraction and love be enough to keep them together... or will it tear them apart?

Their relationship was cute and the sex was hot.

It was a great book, but personally not my favorite. It was like an elaborate-looking cake without that hidden ingredient that makes you sweat like a sinner in church, you know? Only times I felt that was when they were having sex or eye fucking each other. Tempted had it all: drama, mystery, mild suspense and detective work (for those who think too much), romance, steamy romance, and a good dose of reality despite him being a vampire.

Maybe that's why I didn't care for it too much, because it was too rockstar-reality for me with characters I didn't I'd-Kill-For-You love. Nick was a little tame for me; it was obvious, when I'd get excited at the times his control slipped. Savannah was a tough cookie but it was nice to see her let go of her fear of being hurt again and trust him. She didn't annoy me that much, and the mistakes she did make were quickly corrected- and then some. Sadly, though, I was a little more intrigued with Malcolm+Von and Ian, the bodyguard werewolf who could read minds and who rarely spoke. I'm telling you, it's always the quiet ones.

I recommend this for a nice, quick read. It's more on the romance/relationship side but the few murder mysteries that did happen made it a little exciting. And that sex tape scandal...

Happy Reading!
