While school teacher Dana Roux is attracted to hotel tycoon David, she has no intention of ever acting on it. He’s way out of her league, and, as a former investigative journalist, David would soon discover the sordid scandal of her father’s incarceration and suicide.
David Cavallo quit his job as a reporter because he no longer had the stomach for it. Now he works with his brothers, enjoys life and especially enjoys flirting with women. Usually, they reciprocate, but Dana steers clear even though he can tell she’s tempted. But at his brother’s wedding, they share a kiss that leaves him aching for more. Could Dana be the one? Before he can explore his feelings, he learns of his role in her father’s fall and suddenly his hoped-for romance becomes complicated.
Will the past define their future?

Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Rating: 4 stars
AN IRRESISTIBLE TEMPTATION is a romance that will touch your heart, but it’s also a suspenseful mystery in many ways that will engage your puzzle solving abilities as well. While this one “could” be read on its own there are characters from the first book who show up often. In my opinion, you’ll have a more complete reading experience if you can read AN IMPOSSIBLE ATTRACTION also – but I certainly understand book budgets so you’ll still have a lovely suspense-filled romance if that’s not possible.
Dana and David certainly have a sizzling attraction between them, yet they also have other connections as well. The past will not be left behind in this story as Dana needs to prove that her father did not commit suicide while incarcerated, and David needs to help her for his own reasons. There were moments when I thought the mystery and suspense overshadowed the romance between Dana and David. That didn’t stop my enjoyment of their story, simply an observation.
I enjoyed AN IRRESISTIBLE TEMPTATION on several levels. The mystery of Dana’s father’s death held my attention throughout, and the romance simply grew stronger, deeper as they worked together to discover the truth. If you like your romance with a dash of mystery then you’d enjoy this one.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
