Book Description:

Sometimes being happily married and completely content is not at all what it seems.

That is what 35 year old, happily married mother of two, Alexis Summers finds out when decides it is time to return to work. After being a stay-at-home Mum for the past nine years, Alexis now realises a complete career change is just what she needs.

She becomes a Concierge Attendant in a prestigious hotel in Melbourne working for the owner of the hotel, Bryce Clark. He resides in the penthouse, is extremely hot and is a man who always gets what he wants—and what he wants is Alexis. She does a relatively good job resisting Bryce at first, but the undeniable chemistry, sexual tension and playfulness between the two of them is intense. He has copious amounts of money, sex appeal and above all, is a genuinely nice guy. Bryce has been waiting for his one true love to come along and he is positive that one true love is Alexis.

There is one problem; she is happily married to Rick, and no matter how strong her feelings are for Bryce, she is adamant she will not cheat. She draws a line in the sand but finds it increasingly hard not to cross. Will she succumb to Temptation?

Temptation by K.M. Golland is a must read for anyone who loves romance with a spicy twist.  This book may have some similarities to 50 Shades of Grey but I assure you it  has its own surprises lurking amongst the pages.  This book reminds me of the movies Pretty Woman, Indecent Proposal & An Officer and a Gentlemen all rolled into one.  Alexis is a happily married mother of two who has just re-entered the workforce.  She lands a job working for a handsome billionaire who lavishes her with attention, a promotion and expensive gifts.  He wants more but is she willing to ruin her marriage and destroy her happy family to fulfill her desires.  Alexis has never wanted anyone besides her husband, Rick, and these new emotions that Bryce elicits from her are driving her crazy.  But, Bryce won’t give up his advances and Alexis keeps pushing his buttons.

I give this book 4/5 stars!! I loved the plot twists & turns and how the author built up the sexual tension between Alexis & Bryce – she didn’t just have them rolling in the sheets in the first two pages.  Without spoiling the plot I especially liked the final few chapters and how Rick reacts to Bryce’s revelation & proposal.  I did find the beginning of the book to be slow and I put it down a lot.  However, as the plot advanced I found myself wanting to know more and the author did not disappoint.  I am looking forward to the continuation of Alexis & Bryce’s story and will be reading the second book in the series – Satisfaction.

Enjoy my favorite quote from the book – it really sums up the overall message.

“I don’t believe anything is absolute.  Things change, people change. Circumstances change.” – Bryce pg.74
