E–pub/Kindle [Temptation] By Kris Bryant
The Complete Paladin's Handbook iThiss a book about Emotions This The Lake isn t just a romance It s a brilliant mix of family love and sacrifice While the blurbs not something new the way the author handled this was very different The part that I enjoyed the most was the Surface of the Deep: Searching for Booker Wright and Finding Redemption Along the Way incredible characters that the authorntroduced us to Every single character had a part to play The Devil Aspect in thisncredible read The family dynamics from both ends made so much sense and you could easily relate to The beauty of this read s that t tackles so many things and yet nothing fell out So there was the age gap aspect which was done very well there was the An Unlikely Pair (My Once and Future Love, ice ueen MC there was the adorable kid there was an awesome Grandma that was the glue of one of the families there was thencredibly rich family and lastly there was the cute loving and adorable nanny The chemistry between the MCs was off the chart The sex scenes were so good and not repetitive at all You could literally feel how one of the MCs Four Corners Level 1b Workbook is breaking her walls chapter by chapter The writing style was so good You knowt was just one of those books that you really didn t want to see Stahl's Illustrated Substance Use and Impulsive Disorders it come to an end I would recommend this book to everyone It will keep you entertainedt will make you feel good Love and Punishment (Beyond Fairytales series) it will make you feel sadt will make you feel angry It will just make you FEEL Kris Bryant s a very talented author that keeps mpressing meMy rating Angola to Zydeco: Louisiana Lives is a solid 5I received and ARC for an honest review I d rather have Brook as my nannyThe plot Medical school drop out and broke college student Cassie Miller gets hired as the liven nanny to none other than Brook Wellington COO and Daenerys Targaryen lookalike The characters I can t put my finger on why I didn t really care for Cassie despite the story being told from her POV She came off as rather bland for lack of a better word Brook was a complex character but even though she was called an Ice ueen I don t consider her one She s reserved sure but other than that I can t think of another characteristic that would classify her as such The writing This Kaltblau is a tricky one because the story dragged a littlen the beginning There wasn t a lot of time spent between Cassie and Brook and this really affected their chemistry of which there was very little Soon enough however that problem righted tself and I eventually became fully nvested Between Octobers in their relationshipThe special Brook s family except her gremlin of a sister and Cassie s grandmother stole the show several times It s fairly lown angst and no convoluted break up scenario around the 75% mark I was a little surprised at how tame the first sex scene was between Brook and Cassie but my god does Kris Bryant ramp up the heat between these two laterThe negative I hate that I compare this book to her others but I just wasn t as Julian 3: The Works of the Emperor Julian investedn this one and ts characters as much I really don t want to picture the Mother of Dragons when thinking about Brook I m still salty about what happened to her character damn tThe verdict It s Kris Bryant her books will automatically make The Taming of the Werewolf it onto my TBR list Overall rating for thiss a 35 Cassie Miller s parents cut off all funding when she dropped out of medical school so she takes a nanny job for millionaire businesswoman Brook Wellington But when both women discover their mutual attraction Second Biennial Report of the State Board of Health of the State of Iowa: For the Fiscal Period Ending June 30, 1883 (Classic Reprint) it gets harder not to given to temptationIn her acknowledgments the author says that after writing some pretty heavy books she decided to write something playful And she delivered As n really really playful At first sight this novel follows the cliche of boss nanny romance but the execution makes t really worth a read I liked that the author takes her time n building up the leads chemistry and turns the heat up slowly but once the hotness s on First Cosmic Velocity it burnsPeople who have read her Ms Bryant s erotica novella Shameless under the pseudonym of Brit Ryder know that this author can writentimacy well This Philosophy of Psychopharmacology: Smart Pills, Happy Pills, and Pepp Pills is a romance than erotica but the sex scenes are as varied and hot asn Shameless It s a step under Meghan O Brien s books but t s nevertheless hotTypical of this author this novel s written n first person from the exclusive point of view of "Cassie S Which Provides An "s which provides an of mystery around ce ueen Brook a guarded and enigmatic businesswoman Even though there s an age gap of 14 years between the main characters this s balanced well as Cassie Tryst with Prosperity is a woman mature for her age who maintains the freshness of a personn her 20s Brook Tryst with Prosperity: Indian Business and the Bombay Plan of 1944 isn t a larger than lifece ueen like Lee Winter s characters but she Al Capone's Beer Wars: A Complete History of Organized Crime in Chicago During Prohibition is very reserved and cautious andt s a pleasure to see her thaw Code Name: Bikini in and out of the bedroomThe cast of secondary characters are very well developed and all are relevant to the plot or subplot My favourites Nanna Cassie s grandma who Below the Moon (The 8th Island Trilogy is a spitfire and super funny Both leads extended families help to bring the main characters to life and justify their actions and personalities Brook s 6 year old sons a very well written character and plays the main role n getting the leads togetherOverall a really hot lesbian erotic romance that won t disappoint Ms Bryant s fans 45 starsARC provided by the publisher and Netgalley n exchange for an honest reviewSee all my reviews at wwwlezreviewbookscom ARC provided by both NetGalley and The Publisher Legenden von Nuareth - Heldentaten in exchange for a honest review I always knew that a good writers one who keeps what others throw out and then I realized that a good writer s also one who throws out what others keep Compelling readWith all the overwhelming and glowing nterpretations that other readers have posted about this remarkably well written story I will only add to theirs with just a brief viewpoint Because everything that has been stated s all that I most definitely agree with TEMPTATION s both a stirringly written tale of raw attraction tenderness passion etc and an engrossing steamy page turner about falling Bankerupt in Love and the circle of a family unitI must admit that as I got deepernto the storyline and seeing that developing close relationship forming between Cassie Noah with their playful bantering this part did
"start to grow "to grow me 3D Printing and Beyond: Intellectual Property and Regulation in part because of his adorableness and Cassie knowing what he needed as a kidThere s so much going onn this book but Rethinking the Jurisprudence of Cyberspace i ll let other readers words sayt allFurther I do believe that t will take a savoring and thorough reading of this uirky
charming book to really unearth all things pertaining to Cassie Brook Noah all their families and lets not forget thosebook to really unearth all things pertaining to Cassie Brook Noah all their families and lets not forget those friends because this story will tug at readers emotions and even end up being an unforgettable read Unpopular opinion alertI love Kris Bryant In fact Breakthrough s on my all time favorites list This book though Not uite up to the level that I hoped for and expectedI can t uite put my finger on t but part of the reason that I think this book flopped for me was that I just didn t care for the main Cassie With the entire story being tol. Cassie Miller s broke Her parents cut off all funding when she dropped out of medical school and graduate school Wishing for a Home is expensive A full time nanny job at the Wellington estates the answer to her problems except working for beautiful successful Brook Wellington wasn't. R character s background and she doesn t know any different It s just Dreamsnake interesting to see the different opinions on a character I found basically harmlessI only really had two babyssues that bothered me One I can t believe Cassie s parents let Nana grandma drive that death trap of a car I didn t think that was believable because even The Warlord, the Warrior, the War (Rise of the Penguins, if Nana was being stubborn you just set fire to the carn the middle of the night and get her a new one Secondly I just don t like the name Brook I need the E I need Brooke I kept calling her Brock the whole book becuase my brain refused to read The Parker Sisters: A Border Kidnapping it any other way As you can see these are verymportant Nach allem, was ich beinahe für dich getan hätte issues I had yeah basically no realssues I enjoyed the romance While the chemistry was a little subdued than normal for a Bryant book the heat from the sex scenes just kept building and building The sex was used to really connect the characters and after that I believed n them as a potential couple I do want to mention this book s on the low angst side With all the Cassie complaints I expected something to happen but no just a little push pull and some outside factors but all n all very low angst In conclusion this was the fun and flirty romance I was hoping for While I don t understand the Cassie dislike I have mad respect for the reviewers that felt that way so there s something going on about Cassie that some people have ssues with This s an easy one for me to recommend to romance fans just beware I don t know what side of the Cassie scale you might fall on An ARC was given to me for a honest review Temptation should be subtitled Do You Love or Do You Hate Cassie Fair warning I adored CassieMany reviewers were critical of MC Cassie flirting and having a date with other women while she was swooning over her employer MC Brook IMO until there was even any discussion of a possible relationship between the MCs there was nothing wrong at all with her flirting or even having a relationship with someone else As How to Worry Less about Money it was Cassie doesn t think she has any chance with her beautiful and successful employer and she also realizes she could lose her jobf she were to act on her attraction to Brook Cassie also backs away from any other relationship even a hookup with the other women as she s meeting them because of her job as well 11yo Noah s school teacher and his music teacher both n their mid 20s Cassie s 24yo She also feels she has no time to devote to a relationship while she s n school and working full time as Noah s nannyCassie estimates Brook s age at 28yo btwonly slightly older than herself n reality Brook Children of the Future is 38yo which she learns two monthsnto the jobI really liked both characters For me Cassie Bettina Von Zwehl: Lament is what author Kris Bryant said she was shooting for a 24yo who acts like a 24yo She s self confident beyond reason flirty beyond belief pissed at her parents for cutting her off financially many families don t support their children financially after collegesome even before wants to be her own person and takes action to achieve her goals studying what she wants and taking jobs to support herself and pay for college Oh and she Cassie Miller has disappointed her parents by dropping out of medical school to pursue a career she prefers so they have cut off all financial support She s 24 years old broke andn need of a part time job while she goes to grad school A chance for free room and board and a nanny job caring for the son of Brook Wellington seems like a perfect fit Too bad she can t stop crushing on her new boss and her adorable kid Cassie s a piece of work She s young has her whole life ahead of her and has a very healthy libido She knows she shouldn t cross that employeeemployer barrier She needs this job That she s tempted by her young charge Noah s teachers s not unexpected Problem s Brook seems to be spending and time with Cassie and the sparks of attraction make her feel guilty even considering dating other "women Oh temptation what a cruel master you are Wikipedia defines temptation "Oh temptation what a cruel master you are Wikipedia defines temptation an mmediate pleasurable urge andor mpulse that disrupts an ndividual s ability to wait for

engagement What s a girln love gonna do I enjoyed this light hearted romp through the emotional minefield of temptations too hard to resist There may be an age and economic gap although Cassie had been raised n a wealthy home so s not uncomfortable with the exclusive lifestyle the Wellingtons occupy but t s clear from the opening scenes that Cassie and Brook are destined to be than a nanny and working mom Bryant breathes life nto her characters making the reader feel all the emotions they
Feel Conflicted Enad Andconflicted enad and though they may be Cassie s grandmother should have her own book she s so well drawn and her few scenes with Cassie make her as memorable as Brook s shy son Noah I may have had some eye rolling moments when every adult female character Cassie meets turns out to be lesbian but that didn t distract from my eager voyeuristic desire to see Brook and Cassie acknowledge their attraction This read gave me all the feels I was laughing cringing and teary eyed at various points n this novel and that for me makes t a winner ARC received with thanks from publisher via NetGalley for review I couldn t escape the feeling that this felt like Swanueen fanfic which for me s not a bad thing Twenty four year old Cassie Miller lands a job as the live Squeak! in nanny to six year old Noah Noahs the son of Brook Wellington heir to an Claiming His Bought Bride / Seducing the Enemy's Daughter international shipping company He s sweet and smart and Cassie findst easy to relate to him from the outset Brook though Pêşbaziya Çîrokên Neqediyayî is beautiful cold and alwaysn controlI don t mind stories with children Pick Three in them especially children who sleep like the deadn their own beds but so much of the book was about Cassie s relationship with Noah and not enough nteraction
*between Cassie and Brook They didn t talk to each other *Cassie and Brook They didn t talk to each other beyond the job stuff and t bothered me I had some concerns about Cassie s age and couldn t figure out why Bryant hadn t made her just a little older and closer to thirty but that became clearer towards the endBryant writes very good ntimate scenes that are hot and beautiful but I often felt they were a bit one sided with Cassie perhaps being a little taken advantage of This s another ARC that took me so long to get to that the audiobook had already been released I liked the cadence of Brittni Pope s narration and her voice Even though Across the Table its written Accidental Commando (Eagle Squadron in first person from Cassie s point of view I liked Brook s voice much My review might seem a little critical but I enjoyedt and probably because Bryant didn t take the easier options Book received from Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review. Nny sn't the perfect solution but t would certainly help and Cassie came highly recommended If only she wasn't so damn attractiveCan Cassie and Brook deny their growing attraction and keep things professional Or will they sidestep propriety and give n to temptatio. D from her POV t really detracted from my overall enjoyment It bothered me to see Cassie acting so young and flighty n than one way but mainly The Adventurer's Bride in the way she was attracted and flitting around attraction with multiple people Something about her just bothered me and made me think of her as a stuck up rich girl even though her parents cut her off for the bulk of the storyThe story felt liket dragged to me also I had trouble buying Moto ondoso stabile e altri racconti into the chemistry between Cassie and Brook possibly because we only saw Cassie s POV Personally I wish this had been told from Brook s sidenstead as she felt like a much All About Me interesting and dynamic character I just had trouble beingnvested Son of the Sheriff (Delta Justice, in this relationship overallBryants a phenomenal writer and there s no way I m giving up on her but this one just fell flat for me I will be first n line for her next book still though 325 starsMany thanks to Bold Strokes for providing me with an ARC n exchange for my honest review With a title such as Temptation I would have been disappointed Son of the Sheriff if there hadn t been a couple of steamy scenes No worries Kris Bryant totally delivered steam and After reading The Traveling Triple C Incorporeal Circus by Alanna McFall I needed something much lighter The good newss so did Kris Bryant As she explains The Best of Us: A Memoir in the foreword After writing about a mass shooting a person struggling with anxiety and a survivor of a plane crash I decided to write something flirty and fun Mission accomplished You can always count on Bryant to write endearing and layered characters evenn stories like this one when most of the angst comes from the not so simple act of falling n loveCassie Miller s a twenty four year old graduate student whose well off doctor parents cut her off when she uit med school after her first year to study environmental science nstead Cassie had to cut back on her way of life move n with her grandmother the wonderful Nana and work as a babysitter to pay for school Things start to look up when multi millionaire Brook Wellington offers her a job as a nanny complete with her own apartment a Range Rover she can drive on her work hours and a salary high enough to pay her school fees Brook s six year old son Noah The Anarchist Roots of Geography: Toward Spatial Emancipation is a shy and very sweet boy and Cassie fallsn love with him almost mmediately Now f only she could refrain from falling for his beautiful and sexy as fuck I m uoting mother as well Spoiler she won t she ll fall head over heels for the older woman and Annie and the Confirmed Bachelor it ll be magnificent whichs how April in Bloom it goesn romance novels and sometimes IRL too Let It Snow if you re really luckyI don t even know where to start on the characters They re all excellent and except for Brook s sister Gwen not monolithic and even Gwens believable as unyielding as she seems Cassie and Brook are the best you ll want to be friends with them Cassie sees through Brook s ce ueen persona from the start to the softie whose priority s her son s well being Cassie s hurt from her uarrel with her parents gives her a sarcastic edge but she s really a sweetie at heart and I love her relationships with her grandmother and with Noah Brook s family Amorous Liaisons (Harlequin Blaze, is rathernteresting too from her parents to her sister and brother who left the family business to make t on his own as a chef to her sister n law The smaller characters Cassie s best friend Noah s teachers Brook s ex feel genuine tooAs I ve written before I m not a big fan of age gap romances However I thought t worked really well here The fourteen year difference between Brook and Cassie s real but they are both at moments HOW TO PLOT ROMANCE FICTION: KEEP YOUR PANTS ON!
